Book Reviews

Book Reviews can now be found on subsequent pages. As I continue to learn about this website, there’s more I can do. I love books, and I love reading. If you’re an author, I’ll review your book for either the publisher or for you. Leave a comment or find me on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn. Thanks for stopping by.



I  have to admit, I’m prejudiced. I know DiAnn a bit, she’s a writing mentor of mine. Four and three-quarters stars. I don’t give five stars hardly ever, but this new one of DiAnn Mills comes very, very close. Twist after twist, and the biggest is the mastermind behind a terrorist attack at the Houston Airport. Firewall has suspense, action, adventure, mystery, and romance. What more could you ask for. And of course, the writing is terrific, the characters are well-developed. The plot is a roller coaster ride.

Mystery, Murder, and Marriage?
Murder at the Mikado by Julianna Deering

This is the third book in the Drew Farthering Mystery series. I reviewed Death by the Book about six or so months ago, and I read the first book, Rules of Murder after I read Death by the Book.

What do you love in a mystery? Clues, multiple suspects, style, multiple murders, red herrings, and few obvious clues that help you solve the mystery. A classic whodunit. Ah, but this is more than that.

The subplot is the romance between Drew and his newly engaged fiancée, Madeline, who, in truth, have only known each other six months. They met in the first book, Rules of Murder, fell in love at first sight, and the rest is supposed to be history. But will it be?

Stuck Together
by Mary Connealy

I really enjoy Mary Connealy’s books. I’ve read the Kincade Brides series and several other trilogies I’ll mention at the end. Last year I reviewed Fired Up, and I jumped at the chance to review Stuck Together. Some of Mary’s stories are better than others, and I’d say anything she does in full-length trilogy form is worth reading. I’ve read some of her stand-alone shorter novels, but I find these full length novels are better, because the characters and plot are more fully developed and considered…

Here’s the link to the full review…

Since 2009, I’ve reviewed nearly 20 books, but I’ve read well over 200 in the last year and a half. I know 20 books reviewed isn’t that many, compared to others. I can be excused because I also ran an organic chocolate truffle business out of my home, so I cut out reviewing for a while. I’m back at it and will stay at it.

These two are my most recent reviews. Others can be found at the site below. Thank you for reading.

For a purpose

The blog site of Rick Wade


Where it is a good thing to be an outcast.


We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
