Thrilling, Engaging and Fast Paced Read

Face of Betrayal A Triple Threat Novel
By: Lis Wiehl

WOW, I had heard all the hype and talk about this one and from the very beginning the author draws you in and I could not put it down.  It took me all of 2 days to finish this great read.  I would put it down to go to bed and would pick it back up thinking I would read just one more chapter, then another and another.  The ending is thrilling, and will shock you to the core, the characters are so realistic and as you read you feel as if you know these women. The suspense and twists and turns will keep you on the edge of your seat. This book will rock your world. A MUST READ~!

Entertaining Motivation

Naturally Thin

Naturally thin has many pros and few cons, this is a book written by one of the stars on Real Housewives of New York.  Bethenny Frankel has written this book with some great tips which include how to stop thinking fat and begin thinking skinny, she offers advice, insight, and tips for thinking slender.  Among the pages you will find 30 recipes and other health tips from celebrities.  There are practical tips on eating and staying healthy and fit, and tells the reader to maintain proper portion control, she tells us there are no foods which are off limits as long as you eat in moderation and continue with portion control, all the while remaining as a entertaining read.  The author also encourages the reader to exercise daily as part of helping you to become naturally thin, of course.

Great Debut Novel

Running from the Devil
Author: Jamie Freveletti

A great debut novel, a plan crashes in the Columbian jungle and Emma is taken prisoner.  The author has penned a very good debut novel with hopes for future works.  Her character is well written, and the scenes are well written and described in detail with well developed characters which makes Running from the Devil a great action and adventurous read.  Faced paced and I look forward to reading future books from this author. I would highly recommend this one, there were some flaws that I personally found but overall a very good debut.

A Refreshing New Look Into the Mystery Realm

The Rivers Run Dry
Author: Sibella Giorello

This is an amazing read, I wish I had read the first in the series and will be purchasing everyone in this series.  The main character Raleigh Harmon is written with a flare, you will share what the character is thinking and feeling.  The author has a way of drawing the reader in and keeping you there.  Hang on tight for a fantastic ride, a refreshing new look into the mystery realm.  Raleigh Harmon is an FBI special agent who has a hard time putting up with the bureaus politics, especially when it gets in the way of solving a case. A college student has disappeared and she was the daughter of wealthy parents who had been involved with an unsavory young man who had gambling problems.  The author lays the path of clues throughout as to the perpetrator and you will be shocked at the ending.  A mystery that is worth reading and demands to be finished once you pick it up.  Pick this one up and see what I mean you will stay up late to find out what happens so make start early.  A definite 5 stars!

Last Known Address

Last Known Address is a very tough read, I had to force myself to finish this one. In my opinion it is poorly written and found myself muddling through, the characters are not even likable. Would not recommend and would pass on this one.
