The Murder Rule
“Hannah is a 3rd year law student in Maine. She is on a mission to seek revenge on the man who she believes killed her father. She wants him to stay in prison for life for a murder he swears he didn’t commit. To do this she must transfer to UVA law school and talk her way on to the Innocence project – specifically on to the case of Michael Dandridge whose original conviction was overturned but who is on the verge of being tried again, unless the innocence project can convince the judge the original evidence was tainted. Hannah is sneaky, conniving, and bright – very bright – and she manages to to talk her way on to his case. Luckily, she also genuinely believes in justice. The Murder Rule was a riveting story told from two points of view – the 1994 diary of Laura who is Hannah’s mother and Hannah’s as she works to sabotage the project. The work of the law students to help prove people innocent was intriguing and very well explained (McTiernan is herself a lawyer). The ending was totally unexpected following some real heart stopping action. The narration was perfect - I especially liked Laura's voice when reading her diary.”Nancy , Fiction Addiction

The Key to Deceit
Electra McDonnell Series: Book #2
“The Key to Deceit is Ashley Weaver’s second entry in the Electra McConnell series, and it’s another fun read. Ellie (Electra) and her Uncle Mick are tapped again to help break up a spy ring just as London is preparing for the German onslaught of the Blitz. With their special 'skills'—i.e. of lock picking and burglary—the McDonnells find themselves in the service of King and country when it becomes apparent that a German spy ring has set up in London to photograph factories, shipyards and other vulnerable targets for bombers. When your spies are using safety deposit boxes as drop points, you need safe crackers to solve the problem! Weaver is great at capturing the historical moment and gives us a little insight into the lives of ordinary people faced with the extraordinary and terrifying moment. Ellie is an interesting character, and this book further develops her personal history and the mysteries in her past. I loved the first book A Peculiar Combination, and Weaver seems set to continue the series. Even if you haven’t read the first book, you can still get hooked on Ellie, her charming rascal of an uncle and the handsome Major Ramsey, their 'handler' from British Intelligence. Alison Larkin’s narration is superb and really captures the personalities of a wide range of characters.”Sarah, Raven Book Store
Skandar and the Unicorn Thief
“I came for blood-thirsty unicorns; I stayed for the fun, spunky unicorn riders and their ornery steeds. Skandar's dream is to be a unicorn rider. When given the opportunity, he dives head-first into the Hatchery and the world of sky battles, powerful elemental magic, secrets, and shady villains. Along the way, he develops strong bonds between friends and embraces who he's meant to be. This is a fun read, playing off the 'Chosen One' trope. I really liked the characters and, of course, blood-thirsty unicorns!”Anna, The Well-Read Moose

The Beast and the Bethany
The Beast and the Bethany
“As one of my coworkers so aptly put it, Ebenezer Tweezer is an absolute twit. He’s what would happen if Lemony Snicket impersonated Stephen Fry. He’s like Dorian Gray but hilariously worse. I blew through the audiobook for this one and couldn’t stop laughing all the way through. This is the absurdly British spot of sunshine – or talkative grey smudge on the sole of my shoe – that I need in my life.”Kvothe, Rediscovered Books
