Lady Blues By Aaron Paul Lazar:

My review for Lady Blues By Aaron Paul Lazar:
Past and present collide when an Alzheimer’s patient’s fragile memory holds the key to solving mysteries dating back to World War II—including a long lost secret love affair.

Music professor Gus LeGarde is just doing a favor for a friend when he agrees to play piano for church services at a local nursing home. He doesn’t expect to be drawn into a new friendship with an elderly Alzheimer’s patient dubbed “the music man” or to stumble across a decades-old mystery locked inside the man’s mind.

Octogenarian Kip Sterling doesn’t know his own name—but he speaks Gus’s language, spouting jazz terms like “cadence” and “interlude” and “riff.” He’s also obsessed with “his Bella,” but nobody knows who she is.

When Kip is given a new drug called Memorphyl, he starts to remember bits and pieces of his life. Gus learns Bella was Kip’s first and only love, but their relationship was shrouded in scandal. Intrigued, Gus agrees to help search for her. Could she still be alive?

Horrified when the miracle drug suddenly stops working and patients begin to backslide, Gus panics. Can he help Kip find his beloved Bella before his newfound memories disappear?

My Review 
This novel is intricately and captivatingly written. Lazar draws you in with his fantastic writing and keeps you there with the imaginative story. This read that will keep you hooked both intellectually and emotionally. Not only that, but Lazar is one of those rare authors who tells a unique tale that will appeal to many age groups without talking down to anyone or talking over their heads. The language used fits perfectly with the story at hand and the characters involved. He tells a story that unfolds on many levels at the same time, holding information back until it is relevant.

The characters in this novel are well developed. I appreciated the way that they fit together while still standing alone as individuals. It was the best of both worlds. As Pure Jonel said so well: They are firmly set in the time period in question. Also, for Lazar there is no such thing as a minor character. Everyone is important in their own right, even if they aren`t main characters. That description couldn’t be more true.

This is definitely a one of a kind novel. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and can’t wait to see what happens next in this series.

Summoned by Rainy Kaye

Welcome To my Review of:
 Summoned by Rainy Kaye
Twenty-three year old Dimitri has to do what he is told—literally. Controlled by a paranormal bond, he is forced to use his wits to fulfill unlimited deadly wishes made by multimillionaire Karl Walker.
Dimitri has no idea how his family line became trapped in the genie bond. He just knows resisting has never ended well. When he meets Syd—assertive, sexy, intelligent Syd—he becomes determined to make her his own. Except Karl has ensured Dimitri can't tell anyone about the bond, and Syd isn't the type to tolerate secrets.
Then Karl starts sending him away on back-to-back wishes. Unable to balance love and lies, Dimitri sets out to uncover Karl's ultimate plan and put it to an end. But doing so forces him to confront the one wish he never saw coming—the wish that will destroy him.


Available at  Amazon

My Review 
This book was exactly what I needed! I enjoyed it so much, and in the middle of an extremely busy weekend, I needed a book that I could just get lost in. And that was this book. The author has a brilliant way of telling a story that you don't realize, or care, how much time has passed. The only thing that was on my mind was what was going to happen next. I needed to know, and it became one of those walking while reading situations, because I didn't want to waste a single second of available reading time! :)  Well Done Rainy Kaye

Coping by J Bennett This is my Review

This exciting follow-up to Falling (Book one of the Girl With Broken Wings series) finds Maya intent on joining her half-brothers in their secret war against the genetically-enhanced killers that call themselves angels. Still trying to cope with her new abilities and the hunger that threatens to overwhelm her, Maya may be more of a hindrance than a help to her brothers as they take on a new mission and make a grisly discovery.

Coping is a fast-paced novella that brings readers back into Maya’s darkly-humorous world where angels are not the good guys, the heroes don’t wear tights, and getting in over your head just means it’s Tuesday. Join Maya, Gabe and Tarren for more blood, bullets, and Chuck Norris jokes in Coping. (Approx. 23,000 words.)


My Review: 5 STARS ALL THE WAY!  J Bennett 

knocks another one out of the park. I throughly 

enjoyed Falling and now Coping. I can't wait for 

book 3!!!
