Here is a recap of my December reads with links to the full reviews.
Christmas at Pebble Creek by Vannetta Chapman
Full Review: Christmas at Pebble Creek
I gave this book 3/5. I haven’t read the Pebble Creek series, so I would have liked a little more backstory to Grace in this short story. This read was pleasant. I neither loved nor disliked it. I have not read anything in the Amish genre, and now know it is not my reading cup of tea.
Make My Wish Come True by Jade Cooper
Full Review: Make My Wish Come True
I gave this book 3/5. A hot romance with a lot of steamy moments and an Alpha male love interest. Not enough conclusion for my liking. I want to know more about the ‘Christmas magic’, and what happens next. Perhaps another short story?
The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne
Full Review: The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.
I gave this book 4/5. A re-read that still packs a punch. A thought provoking, tragic read told masterfully through the eyes of a child. If you haven’t read this book, then read it. If you have, read it again.
Pastels and Jingle Bells by Christina. S. Feldman
Full Review: Pastels and Jingle Bells
I gave this book 5/5. An enjoyable Christmas read with well developed characters and back story. Sub characters played an important role in the life of the main character, and all had clear, distinct voices. A recommended Christmas romance novella.
Tough Love by Skye Warren
Full Review: Tough Love
I gave this book 4/5. A world of violence, power, and debauchery that draws you in from the start. A hero that is far from a saint, and a cliffhanger that leaves everyone’s fate in the balance.
Daughter of Llathe by Ben Cassidy
Full Review: Daughter of Llathe
I gave this book 3.5/5. Impressive world building and character development.Would have benefitted from being longer. A misleading cover that leans toward a younger target audience, but this is not a children’s book.
Project Dodge by J.Lynne
Full Review: Project Dodge
I gave this book 3/5. An interesting glimpse from a zombie child’s perspective, but there was a lack of surprise for me. I would have preferred Caitlyn’s perspective throughout, and something shocking to hook me, whether in a unique plot twist or fresh writing style. Still, a well written zombie narrative.
