Synopsis: 
It’s been almost a year, but Avery hasn’t gotten over her father’s death in a tragic accident. He was the only one who understood her special abilities, which he instructed her to always keep secret. Who can she talk to now that he’s gone? One of her friends isn’t who he seems to be, and he warns her that her father and she are faeries, and that the Fairy world has been hunting for her. Worse, once they find her, she’ll have to stand trial on behalf of her father for a crime she’s sure he’d never have committed. Her only choice is to figure out who actually did commit the crime so she can exonerate her father… And herself.
REVIEW:
This review is really hard for me to write as it is a good book with a great ideas but it was just hard to read.  The real problem for me was the first half of the book, it was extremely confusing and not that entertaining.  … Continue reading

The Great Recession. Reality TV. Luxury cosmetics. And a basset hound named Botox. What do all these things have in common?

They’re all essential story components in BEAUTY SECRETS, a sexy romantic comedy novel, written in a style best described as “Jennifer Weiner meets E. L. James.” 

Amanda Brown is a high-flying cosmetics executive for Revina Corporation, the oldest and most venerable cosmetics company in America. She comes from a good “old money” family, she went to Swarthmore, and she lives in a beautiful penthouse apartment in NYC’s Meatpacking District. But she’s only successful on the surface—-like many New Yorkers, she’s also financially overextended. Her parents are dead, her trust fund is gone, and when the Great Recession hammers her company, like millions of people across America she suddenly finds her job hanging by a thread.

Enter George Watson, a hedge-fund manager and self-made man from the Midwest who swoops in from Indiana to rebuild Revina Corporation from the ground up. Even if he fired everyone else at the company, he decides to keep Amanda on for her expertise. The two of them are from different worlds,… Continue reading

The Absence of Mercy: A Novel by John Burley (Review By Pauline)

**Review By Pauline From The Nerd Girl Page**

*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review*

A serial killer, murder mystery, and medical thriller all wrapped up in one? How could I resist? As a long time fan of John Sanford, I saw this opportunity for review and picked it up right away. The twist of seeing things from the medical examiner and his family’s point of view made things hit home a little harder than the usual “single” detective story.
The author’s masterful use of metaphor had me underlining passages just for the poetic nature of his prose. And although a lot of the medical jargon went over my head, it added a bit of realism to the general plot line. None of the book felt too intellectual to be picked up by the common reader.
Now. Not to spoil the plot, but as far as whodunits go, I was a bit disappointed by the lack of real clues throughout the story. It wasn’t until after the murderer was suspected that we got real clues to his/her identity. For that, I was sorely tempted to knock off a star. But overall, the reading experience was… Continue reading

You breathe in, you breathe out, and everything you know is gone.

Sara Walker knows firsthand what it feels like to have your reality ripped away, scrambled, and shoved back at you in an undone puzzle where pieces are missing and nothing fits. She’s lost so much and is struggling to live and to find the strength to forgive herself for being human. With the help of Lincoln, her husband’s brother, Sara realizes it’s not about finding who she used to be, but about finding who she is now.

You breathe in, you breathe out, and everything you know isn’t gone, but reborn.

My Review:
It’s a good book but very emotional and at times hard to read because your seeing this character going through such a hard time and you want things to get better for her but with every page your heart just breaks for her more and more. I was reading through a lot of tears.
About halfway the story reaches a climax and the plot deepens and that’s when things become real interesting and truthfully I… Continue reading
