Review: Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep

Review: Brentwood’s Ward by Michelle Griep

Brentwood’s Ward by is the first in that combines mystery with a touch of romance. While the series itself is based on a real profession and location in London during the late 1700s to mid-1800s, the characters and story are pure fiction. I found myself engrossed at times, missing meals to finish the book. Nicholas […]

Review: Legendary by Stephanie Garber

Better than the first!!! How often can you say that about a sequel?! Usually sequels suffer from second book syndrome, acting as a bridge in a trilogy, a filler really with no necessary information meaning the book winds up quite dull.
