#BookReview: Kangaroo Too (Kangaroo #2) by @curtiscchen

Kangaroo Too (Kangaroo #2)
 Set in the same world as Waypoint Kangaroo, Curtis C. Chen's Kangaroo Too is bursting with adrenaline and intrigue in this unique outer space adventure.


On the way home from his latest mission, secret agent Kangaroo’s spacecraft is wrecked by a rogue mining robot. The agency tracks the bot back to the Moon, where a retired asteroid miner―code named “Clementine” ―might have information about who’s behind the sabotage.


Clementine will only deal with Jessica Chu, Kangaroo’s personal physician and a former military doctor once deployed in the asteroid belt. Kangaroo accompanies Jessica as a courier, smuggling Clementine’s payment of solid gold in the pocket universe that only he can use.


What should be a simple infiltration is hindered by the nearly one million tourists celebrating the anniversary of the first Moon landing. And before Kangaroo and Jessica can make contact, Lunar authorities arrest Jessica for the murder of a local worker.


Jessica won’t explain why she met the victim in secret or erased security footage that could exonerate her. To make things worse, a sudden terror attack puts the whole Moon under lockdown. Now Kangaroo alone has to get Clementine to talk, clear Jessica’s name, and stop a crooked scheme which threatens to ruin approximately one million vacations.


But old secrets are buried on the Moon, and digging up the past will make Kangaroo’s future very complicated...

#BookReview: Corliss (Girls of Spindrift, #1) by @VC_Andrews

Corliss (Girls of Spindrift, #1)From the New York Times bestselling author of the Flowers in the Attic and My Sweet Audrina series, now Lifetime movies, comes a haunting new novella featuring a mysterious, highly intelligent teenaged girl as she struggles to survive high school and understand her place in this complex, sometimes dangerous world.

Corliss is not like other girls at her Los Angeles high school. Incredibly intelligent, shy, and a loner, she has difficultly in fitting in. What’s worse, a clique of girls is out to get her after she refuses to take drugs with them, leading to a violent confrontation. When Corliss is unknowingly drugged, her entire life is turned upside down and no one—not even the handsome valedictorian who had agreed to go out with her—looks at her the same way. Will she be able to return to her high school or is there another path she can take? And where will it take her?

#BookReview: Echoes of Memory A. R. Kahler

Echoes of Memory (Ravenborn #2)
 After witnessing a terrible event that left Kaira changed in unimaginable ways, Chris knows he has to find a way to defy his destiny in this second novel in the suspenseful Ravenborn trilogy.


In the aftermath of the deaths plaguing Islington’s campus, a terrible pall has fallen over the students. Kaira is passed-out sick, and Chris—the only witness to the night Kaira invoked something otherworldly—is questioning his sanity. Everyone is willing to believe the deaths were normal, and without Kaira backing him up, his claims that there was something supernatural at work are getting harder and harder to believe. Even to himself.



Especially because now, the voices he’s locked away are getting louder. Stronger. Violent.



When the god plaguing his mind starts promising Chris a future of bloodshed, Chris knows he isn’t safe. He can’t be trusted. Especially not around Kaira, whom this god swears Chris will kill.



Chris only wants to keep his friends safe. Even at the cost of his own life.



But when the gods of the Underworld are involved, not even death is an escape. It’s just the start of another, darker, journey.


#BookReview: A Momentary Marriage by Candace Camp

A Momentary Marriage
New York Times bestselling author Candace Camp offers a delicious marriage-of-convenience story in this passionate historical romance, featuring her signature “clever and witty banter, sharp attention to detail, and utterly likable characters” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

James de Vere has always insisted on being perfectly pragmatic and rational in all things. It seemed the only way to deal with his overdramatic, greedy family. When he falls ill and no doctor in London can diagnose him, he returns home to Grace Hill in search of a physician who can—or to set his affairs in order.

Arriving at the doctor’s home, he’s surprised to encounter the doctor's daughter Laura, a young woman he last saw when he was warning her off an attachment with his cousin Graeme. Alas, the doctor is recently deceased and Laura is closing up the estate, which must be sold off, leaving her penniless. At this, James has an inspiration: why not marry the damsel in distress? If his last hope for a cure is gone, at least he’ll have some companionship in his final days, and she’ll inherit his fortune instead of his grasping relatives, leaving her a wealthy widow with plenty of prospects.

Laura is far from swept off her feet, but she’s as pragmatic as James, so she accepts his unusual proposal. But as the two of them brave the onslaught of shocked and suspicious family members, they find themselves growing closer. They vowed, “until death do us part”...but now both are longing for their marriage to be more than momentary in this evocative romance, perfect for fans of Sabrina Jeffries and Mary Balogh.

#BookReview: Shepherds' Mayday by Helen Bea Kirk #Giveaway

 
Drake knows something must change. His personal life is about to be the ruination of his professional career. Jerod doesn’t know it yet, but the solution to his own problem lies with someone else’s death. The Shepherd brothers’ silent pleas for help are heard, but no one could imagine how the answers would come.

Life-changing events, forces of nature, life-saving surgeries and a bizarre twist of fate that some might call a miracle. These are the events that tie together the lives of bored, playboy dentist, Drake Shepherd, his munitions expert FBI agent brother, Jerod, a famous composer and a palm reader who owns a tanning business. The mingling and merging of these and other souls is a tale that will transport you from the beach elegance of Santa Barbara to the insane yachting party life aboard the Wide Open, in New York. From our nation’s capital where a horrendous accident has Jerod clinging to life, to the Oklahoma heartland where a tornado leaves Trish and Meredith homeless.

Helen Bea Kirk will move and uplift you with this story of tragedy, loss, redemption, and belief featuring characters so vivid and so true that you will come to consider them friends.
