Long-buried Secrets are Unearthed in Rhys Bowen's Fascinating Novel


The Tuscan Child by Rhys Bowen provided me with hours of pleasurable reading during a time I desperately needed to slow my pace and turn down the volume of the world around me. I am a sucker for World War II stories, and this one hit the mark for me on all counts: a clever plot, likeable characters, and engaging setting. Kudos to author Rhys Bowen. -Review by author Linda Lee Greene.

Review of a Trouble in Tampa by Louise Titchener, a Book to Add to Your To Be Read List


Author Louise Titchener has a new fan in this avid reader and writer. This novel of historical fiction held my interest from the first word to the last. It is meticulously researched and masterfully written, highly entertaining and informative. The characters are believable and engaging. The plot is clever and satisfyingly complex. It is one of the best books I have read this year.  I read it in eBook format for this review, but when finished, I ordered a paperback of it. This is one I will add to my library. Review by Linda Lee Greene, author of Cradle of the Serpent.

Currently a semifinalist for the Florida Writers Association Royal Palm Award for Best Historical Mystery of 2018, Trouble in Tampa is a thrilling look at the Wild South of Florida in 1885. An easy assignment for sharpshooter and ex-Pinkerton investigator, Oliver Redcastle, turns deadly. A wealthy Baltimore art collector sends an employee to Florida. When that man goes missing, the rich man hires Oliver to find him. Reluctantly, Oliver boards Henry Plant's newly constructed train to Florida. At the end of the line he gets off in Tampa to find a swamp load of trouble. He's betrayed by an old acquaintance, and by not one, but two passionate women. Oliver is railroaded into one of old Florida's infamous turpentine camps. There he must use his sharpshooting skill to escape certain death. But that means a harrowing trek through miles of dangerous animals, dangerous people, and shocking intrigues. In Key West he meets female Pinkerton operative, Hannah Kinchman. She got him into trouble in Tampa. But Oliver has a soft spot for Hannah. Together they fight their way through kidnapping, treasure hunts, intrigue, and the beautiful but treacherous Florida Everglades. Will Oliver overcome the many hurdles blocking his way home? It won't be easy!

5 Stars..A Well-Written & Cleverly Plotted Mystery by David Boiani

Avid reader Linda Lee Greene gives this book 5 Stars and says about it:


So often sequels are disappointing, but this one holds its own against past books by this author. This is a dark story of unspeakable crime, but it is balanced with lighter fare found in family relationships and friendship. I recommend this book highly.
The following is an overview of the story:

It has been four years since the case of serial killer Silas Alvah shook the town of Seattle to its core. Retired Detective John Corbin has settled into his life of husband, father, and restaurant owner; Detective work, however, is embedded in his heart and soul and the pull has never left him. When a disturbed and twisted killer rises to the surface of Northwestern Washington, it is soon apparent his intention is to draw John Corbin back into the horrors of detective work that has already left him scarred. Will John risk everything to be drawn into the killer's twisted game of using human beings as pawns? Will he follow his ingrained instincts and attempt to save the innocent from evil? ‘The Redemption’ is a twisting, turning labyrinth that will take you on a thrill ride unlike anything you have experienced before as each life is measured by our most unforgiving enemy… Time.

She has a premonition which sends her and Anya on a quest to find a book that may lead to their destiny. A destiny that takes them through a portal into the Faerie realm.

If you love books about magical faeries, shifters, and werewolves which also includes mystery, action, and adventure then this is the book for you!

AUTHOR TRACY TRAYNOR RELEASES A MAGICAL COMING-OF-AGE STORY

An orphan with a painful past. A wizard running out of time. Together, they’ll discover the most powerful magic is hidden within.

Orphaned at birth and bullied his whole life, Idi never thought he’d grow up to become anything other than the village idiot. When a washed-up wizard tells him he’s destined to become a legendary magician, he’s certain he’s got the wrong urchin. But that doesn’t stop Idi from tagging along on his quest to save the future king.


After seven decades spent puttering around with his magic, Marcus worries his time for heroics has come and gone. So when an oracle entrusts him to train the only boy capable of saving the entire kingdom from dark magic, he jumps at his final shot for glory.


As Idi studies magic under his new master, he struggles to push past the painful memories of abuse and self-doubt that block his powers. But with each step along their perilous quest to save the future king, Idi’s confidence grows along with his healing touch. As dark magic creatures join the race to sway the future king’s heart, Idi and Marcus must learn to believe in themselves to free the kingdom from the clutches of evil.


Idi and the Oracle’s Quest is the first book in the exciting Born to Be series of YA fantasy adventure novels. If you like magical creatures, action-packed quests, and journeys of self-discovery, then you’ll love Tracy Traynor’s heartfelt coming-of-age story.
