Review: At the Water's Edge: A Novel by Sara Gruen

At the Water's Edge: A NovelAt the Water's Edge: A Novel by Sara Gruen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! Having been myself in Scotland and dipped my toes in the Loch Ness, I could just see the scenery so vividly in my mind. "At the Water's Edge" is beautifully written and the plot is passionate and surprising. I particularly like the secondary personas who infused the story with character and devotion. I strongly recommend this book.

Review: Branded by Keary Taylor

Branded (Fall of Angels, #1)Branded by Keary Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book dealing with angels I read in a row. This one is the first book of a series called "Fall of Angels" and it was a much better story! I enjoyed the more mature plot, and although the characters are a bit too perfect; the story was well put together. I am looking forward to read the other books in this series.

Review: Crossroads by Mary Ting

Crossroads (Crossroads Saga, #1)Crossroads by Mary Ting
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

If there was a Twilight book template; this author followed it perfectly. The story is different than the Twilight books, but the feel is the same. It is a great teenager book with good values. The characters are interesting and lovable. This is the first book of the Crossroad Saga Series. It did not hook me enough to read the next books, but if I was 16; I would think differently.

Review: This Time Next Door by Gretchen Galway

This Time Next Door (Oakland Hills, #2)This Time Next Door by Gretchen Galway
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the Oakland Hills Series. This time the story is about Rose and Mark. I enjoyed this light read which was funny, widdy and at time sexy. Although there are several characters which paths are crossing; it is not difficult to keep up with all of them and enjoy their contribution to the story.

Review: The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins

The Girl on the TrainThe Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! This was a ride... a wild train ride!! This book kept me guessing to the end. Paula Hawkins created an intricate story between complex people. The story written in three voices helps the reader get all the angles of the plot and add dimension to the book. A must read!
