I was hooked from first to last page. There’s something really special
about this series, I love the atmosphere, the characters, their stories,
and just everything about it. It draws you in, makes you feel like you
are a part of the story, the struggles, happiness and everything
in-between. Don’t miss out!
I loved this book, and everything about it. It drew me in from the very
first page, and I could just tell that this was going to be a good one.
And it didn’t disappoint. I loved the feel to the book, the atmosphere
Harmon created. It felt real and genuine.
_Who We Are_ was a great hurt-comfort book filled with many lovable
characters. This is the kind of book I really enjoy to read. It ticks
many of my boxes; genuine characters that you can relate to, a
believable plot where everything isn’t neat and just falls in line. It
shows life, just as messy as life is, the struggles, the doubt, loss,
joy, love and happiness and everything in-between.
I’m not really a fan of Amy Lane’s. She’s written a couple of good
books, but for the most part I don’t really like them. But this series?
I love every word of it, can’t get enough of this couple and the
troubles they get themselves into. Truly a series I will be reading
over and over again.
Early this year I found this book by an, to me, unknown author. I had
this craving for books with psychics who cooperate with the police to
solve crimes, I just couldn’t pass this up. And I’m glad I didn’t. It
had it all, a bit broken and dented MC, a touch of drama, a lot of
mystery and suspense. I read it cover to cover in one sitting, and I’m
hoping it will turn into a series.
I don’t have enough words to say how much I enjoyed reading this book.
It was Heartbreaking. Anger inducing. Awe-inspiring. Plain and simple
everything you might want from a book and more. I fell head over heels
in love with both Nate and Sean the moment they appeared on the page,
and they held me captive to the very last word.
Tal Bauer is a marvelous writer and has an incredible gift of giving us
mind-blowing stories with amazing characters and an intricate plotline.
I just love Jack and Ethan to death and I can’t not mention this final
book of theirs. It is action packed to the max a lot of twists and
turns, but the tender moments, they are worth all the wait and troubles
in the world.
I had so much fun while listening to this audiobook. Joel Leslie does
such a fantastic job bringing these characters to life. He absolutely
nails the differences in the characters personalities and you are truly
brought into this book while listening. So much so that when the book
ended my first reaction was _”I want more, this can’t be it”_
All saints is a wonderful, but heartbreaking series, well worth reading.
It humbles you and makes you appreciate the small things in life we take
for granted. These boys have had the harshest of lives. But even though
they are bruised and a little bit broken, they never give up. And
somewhere along the line they find acceptance and love. But the road to
happiness is a long one, and at times brutal, but it’s all worth it in
There’s no way I can make a “Best of” list and not mention a Rhys Ford
mystery novel. I’m not sure if she’s able to write a subpar book? Well
this one ticks all the boxes for a great read and I’m anxiously waiting
for more books in this series.
