First 5* review for “A Pocketful of Stories”

KATE JACK'S BLOG

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the Silver Flute trilogy I looked forward to reading some short fiction by the same author. I was not disappointed. Katrina Jack delivers a collection of wonderful fantasy stories that have an immediate impact on the reader. It is not easy to write engaging short stories but she has brought together a very satisfying collection of quite different tales, some lighter, some quite dark. A personal favourite was A dream of thorn and bramble, and I found Starlight, starbright very moving.

The Missing Baby Star: A Review

Hollywood Hearsay 1: The Missing Baby Star

By Barbara Morgenroth

517dxnxirtl

It’s 1933. America is in the Great Depression. Prohibition is still the law of the land.
When hard news reporter, Caro James, reveals the secret life of a politician in New York City, much to her dismay, The New York Sentinel newspaper sets out to teach her a lesson about the rules of journalism. They send her to Los Angles to write fluff pieces on the film industry.

The contact in Hollywood who is supposed to guide her for the week of punishment, is the handsome and unpredictable movie director, Sugar McLaughlin. Now, with a young, beautiful starlet missing for two weeks and in great danger, Caro and Sugar must find June Fowler before she is lost forever. When the one person who knows what happened to June is murdered, Caro and Sugar can’t help but think they’ve reached a dead end. As Sugar knows, every story has an Act III and Caro is in for the ride of her life as they race to find the starlet.

Available on Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/Hollywood-Hearsay-Missing-Baby-Star-ebook/dp/B074D3FJG6/

My Review: When New York City reporter Caro James is sent to Los Angeles to cover the glitz and glam of Hollywood, she braces herself for an unpleasant week. As a reporter of serious news, she doesn’t relish the idea of writing articles about starlets and hairstyle tips. When she comes upon a story involving a possible missing actress, she suddenly finds that a week in Hollywood isn’t quite long enough – not if she’s going to get to the bottom of a mystery and help uncover the truth about the missing Baby Star. With Sugar McLaughlin by her side, she bravely navigates the glamorous world of Hollywood (and the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles) while maintaining her sense of humor and passion for finding the truth.

The Missing Baby Star is a historical mystery set in Great Depression-era Hollywood. With a fast-paced plot, atmospheric setting, and clever dialogue, this story is a page-turner. Caro is a witty, quick-thinking reporter who makes smart, logical decisions. Her Hollywood contact, Sugar McLaughlin, a highly respected director, has great chemistry with Caro. Their clever banter is one of the great highlights of this book. It’s rare to find a book that makes you laugh and grip the edge of your seat, all in the same chapter.

Overall, this story is a fine gem. It’s well-written with brilliantly-crafted characters. I certainly hope the author plans to write additional books featuring Caro and Sugar. The Missing Baby Star is a winner!

My Rating:

5 star

I’m very grateful to Sue for allowing me to guest on her blog to share the news that my novel, No More Mulberries is FREE between now and Sunday 9th July.

No More Mulberries is set in Afghanistan. Scottish-born midwife, Miriam loves working at a health clinic in rural Afghanistan but she can no longer ignore the cracks appearing in her marriage. Her doctor husband has changed from the loving, easy-going man she married.

An old friend appears, urging her to visit the village where once she and her first husband had been so happy. Miriam finds herself travelling on a journey into her past, searching for answers to why her marriage is going so horribly wrong.

Smorgasbord Reblog – Where do you go to (now) my lovely by Paul Andruss

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

Thomas the Rhymer Paul Andruss

Last week Paul Andruss posted a companion piece to Kevin Morris’s article on swearing in public which includes blogging..  Here is an extract and if you would like to know origins of the words you might sometimes let slip… head over and read the whole post.

Thanks to Kevin Morris of New Author Online for excellent his post ‘It’s my blog and I’ll swear if I like’.

And Chris The Story Reading Ape for reblogging Kevin.

Together they got me off my sorry slothful behind to put virtual pen to virtual paper. Something I’ve been meaning to do since watching Big Brother UK a week or so ago.

Watching Big Brother, now there’s a ‘Crossing the Rubicon’ moment. The phrase signifying a point of irrevocable change: from which there’s no way back.

In the show, two women (one about 40, the other 20ish) were arguing. The 40 year old…

NEW RELEASE – ‘INTO ETERNITY’ (Book Three in The Eternals Series)…

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

Fantasy / Science Fiction

Queen Serena and her allies have fled the Nordic massacre, taking Princess Linka with them. For Jean, it’s heartbreak; for Merryweather and the abandoned Aurora, far worse. Not even the return of a broken Prince Grella and a dramatic escape from an obliterated Hvit softens the blow of their loss. Tempers flare and the pursuit resumes.

Leaving the Arctic ice behind, Jean and the others must reconcile with both current and past deaths, as they close in on the Baltic home of the hated Duke Gorgon. Here, their enemies gather and confrontation is inevitable.

Under Merryweather’s frustrating tutelage, Jean marches from one infuriating revelation to another, but as the lies unravel and the truth unfurls, he discovers the Britannian is not the fool he’s taken him for. The enigmatic Merryweather appears the key to the greatest mystery of all. But will he ever show his true…

Review: Abomination

Excellent review for an excellent book!

Jane Dougherty Writes

I must post this enthusiastic review of ‘Abomination’ which made my day when I saw it yesterday. I’m really pleased to know that this reader got a lot of fun out of the book.

abomination_exlargeFantastic Apocolyptic Sci-Fi/Horror Thriller, June 19, 2017

Amazon Customer

This review is from: Abomination: (A Young Adult Fiction Novel) (The Pathfinders Book 1) (Kindle Edition)

‘Abomination’ is the first book in ‘The Pathfinders’ series by Jane Dougherty. I will start off by saying that I immensely enjoyed this apocalyptic novel. It was dark, gritty, and raw and had me completely pulled into the story. ‘Abomination’ is a fantastic read which is very well written and the story (even though apocalyptic /post-apocalyptic has been done before), is very original and engrossing.

One of the first things I noticed, was seeing parallel elements from ‘Lord of the Flies’ by William Golding, and I feel has elements…
