Building Victoria: Aeon 14 (The Intrepid Saga #3) by M.D Cooper

The editing is quite strong, though not perfect. Age appropriate for teens up, though there is a fairly mild torture scene." Amazon, Gilly (about book #1)

Buy this book for a good read, thrills and spills and the thing that every reader wants when they finish an entertaining book, there are more in the series." - Goodreads, Bryan W.


Are we driving each other mad? - Driving Me Mad (Sanity #1) by Lindsay Paige

"I love Lindsay's way of writing about mental health issues in a way that is simple and meaningful to the distressing nature of anxiety and depression, which is often internalized. [...]
Her writing is comforting and really captures the struggle of coping with anxiety and depression within a romantic relationship." - Goodreads, Chelsy

start to question the truth - Family is Murder (McKinley Mysteries #5) by Carolyn Arnold


"[O]nce I sat down and opened the first page I was drawn in to Carolyn's smooth writing, her interesting characters, and the nice pace of the story which included some well done twists and turns. Before I knew it I'd read the entire book.
You know that big smile you wear after you just finish a good book? The one that seems to cement the mood for the rest of the day? Well, that's what I felt after reading Family is Murder. I can honestly tell you to grab a copy, you won't be disappointed." - Amazon, Christine W.
