Book Description:

Is Alex Nicholas really dead?

Two years since the brutal shooting of Alex Nicholas, a gambling underworld boss in Queens, NYC. But his brother, Michael, a respected CEO, struggles with a secret: his murdered brother has been communicating with him via his laptop using AI. This AI-Alex can foresee dangers in Michael’s path, and appears to be trying to help him – even controlling machinery and electronics via WiFi. Meanwhile, trouble is stirring in the historic capital cities of Rome, Berlin and Paris. Inside the Vatican, Monsignor Kurt Schlegelberger has designs to build his power and prepare for the sudden ascension of the Free Forces Party, a throw-back to the Nazis.

Schlegelberger will stop at nothing, but first he must deal with a new threat: someone appears to know the true story behind a series of murders in the US, committed by clergy to cover their tracks of child abuse within the Church. Alex’s re-appearance puts Schlegelberger’s plans in jeopardy. Dead or alive, the way to finish off Alex for good can only be to get to his close family, namely his brother Michael…

This fast-paced third instalment of E.J. Simon’s Death series will keep readers guessing to the very end.

Book Musings - The Good Sister by Rachael Stewart





HE WASN’T HERS TO LOVE … BUT HER HEART DOESN’T CARE…

When Isla Evans agrees to switch lives with her rising star of a twin for three weeks, she has no idea the move will thrust her into the same bed as her teenage celebrity heartthrob, Bradley King. Trapped there at her sister’s request, she gives her desire free reign and finds herself falling hard and fast.

And she’s not alone.

Bradley wants a wife to tick all the boxes, save for one: love. It’s not part of the deal, never was, never will be. But when he returns home early to find his hopeful-fiancĂ©e behaving all sorts of different, he likes it. A lot. Suddenly, he wants a real marriage, with all the trimmings, and he will stop at nothing until he gets it.

But this Hollywood HEA faces one big hurdle—she’s not who he thinks she is…

My Musings :

When I finished the book, I didn't know what to feel. I will try my best to explain my feelings and reactions to the story.

Though I knew it was an erotic romance, I picked it up, based purely on the blurb. I have always been a sucker for twin-switch stories. I rarely read erotica, they have to seriously interest me in the story and the characters because I usually skip the sensual pages. Oh yes! I just glance through them and get to the story. And this book surprised me with the level of intense emotions Isla was able to arouse in me.

The story started off with a bang of  scorchingly hot passion and that vein of heat was found throughout the tale. Then came the real story of Isla's switch to her twin's place and the corresponding interesting situations. They created a lot of mixed feelings in me - there was humour at some places but predominantly sadness. I , as a person could connect with Isla and that caused me to be overwhelmed by her pain. For that, the author has to be commended on a job well done of getting me invested in the heroine's life.

Brad was a perfect hero. I couldn't get enough of him and his gorgeousness. And his actions at the end had me swooning! I was happy with the way the author had ended the book. But the overall impression I went away with, at the end of the book was a mix of happiness and sadness inspite of it being a romance.

I received a copy of the book for reviewing purposes. It doesn't impact  my review in any way.

My rating : 4/5

My Musings :

I have always loved a good mystery. But the genre of cozy mysteries is still new to me. When I picked up this book, the blurb was what had my attention though the author is new to me. So with expectation, I started the book.

Beth had me involved in her story and life with antics. At times, I felt like cheering for her and at other times, I felt like swatting her. One surprising fact was that there was a bit more of romance than expected in the story. And her interactions with the Inspector was lively and interesting! Since I hadn't read the previous books, it was a bit slow for me to get into the story and know more of the characters. But what impression I got from the story had me getting invested in the characters.

Most of the story was about Beth's interest in her friend's life and wondering what was happening and the slowly unwrapping of the mystery was only a tiny bit comparatively. It felt like that to me! I was actually expecting action from the start. Another thing which stood out to me was the author's writing. Her style had me craving her words. I really enjoyed it. The wit and the tempting visuals had me cruising through the pages easily.

This is another author I have added to my TBR list so that I can check out her other books.

My rating : 4/5
