Review of It's All Coming Back To Me Now

It's All Coming Back to Me Now
Lovely Whitmore

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

I found this little jewel of a young adults' book that tells the love story gone astray because of an accident that blocks out a young women's experiences. She, Latrease, cannot remember who she is or her history.

A young doctor, Randy, who has had a background with women, including Latrease, shows up at the hospital she is in. After much thought and thinking the young psychiatrist is her consultant, she agrees to live in his guest house until well.

From here, we understand her plight and his guilt in not being the lover she deserves before her accident. Latrease learns about herself through Randy and his family.

Put this together with Latrease's pregnancy; Lovely Whitmore has written an emotional rollercoaster that will enrapture you. It is a lovely and enjoyable story she has written.

Review of THE SECRET

Review of THE SECRET
by Danny Kemp

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

There are strange bedfellows in war. In The Secret's case, it's a prince and the ruler of Germany meeting before World War II. The results of their encounter start a private Royal event kept out of the public eye.  

Only a hand full of people knows the truth, which leads to criminal actions that fester. Influential people in the United Kingdom want the result of the need to go away into perpetuity. And this quest is put into the hands of a few.

This adventure, Mr. Kemp interwove a thrilling intergovernmental plot that leads to disaster for a few high-level intelligence and wealthy person. His prose keeps you on your toes to the end following a spy expert and a newbie muddle through events at hand.

All-in-all, the novel kept me involved and gave me a profound view understanding how the British 'Get about.' It may be the making of another James Bond, using the formable newbie.

It’s worth the read. Purchase:

Review of Angel's Blood

Angel's Blood

Sallyann Phillips

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Angel Blood dripped into the blood of a young werewolf by the name of Tavi with incredible results that define her existence. She arrives in a small town where like kind beings live. With time she learned to trust the Pack, which is mystified by her abilities.  

The power system of the Pack brings out Tavi’s reasons why she is different from other male and female werewolves, and to them, those unusual characteristics overlooked because of her tragic family story. The Pack brings her into the fold against her doubts in their sincerity.

Tavi’s upbringing and an Alfa Male who is upsetting her and the Pack’s with outside interference become the driving force in the story. It’s developed with fascinating and thrilling escapades that are novella moving.

Ms. Phillips writing flows with enjoyable highs that overshadow the lows. Her knowledge of Werewolves and Vampires gives this adventure credibility if you believe in this mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or a therianthropic hybrid wolf-like creature.

Not my genre, but entertaining none the less.

Review of Low Tide

A Forgotten Coast
Suspense Novel:
Book One

Dawn Lee McKenna

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Being a police detective is a tough job. It's exacerbated when you perform the work in a small seaside town where everyone knows each other.

Maggie is the homicide investigator in Apalachicola on the Gulf Coast of Florida, and someone she knew since childhood was found dead on the sandy beach of St. George Island. The story that follows goes into the victim’s life and that of Maggie.

Her family and his are on the opposite side of the law. The background, settings and colorful scenes are laid out nicely and enhance the story.

Some suspenseful events are thrilling and interwoven into Maggie’s police duties leading to an unexpected ending. The incidents traumatically affect her and are a precursor to Book Two.

Dawn Lee McKeena did an excellent job in setting up the novel for the reader to want to read more about Maggie’s life as a detective. There is no conclusion. You’re left with, “What’s next?” and you click and buy Book Two.

Review of Forget Me Not.

Mark Kane Mysteries, 
Book 1


Reviewed by 
Author Roy Murry

Many mysteries I can somewhat see where the plot is going. Not so with Mr. Hemmings’ story about finding out if a person is who she says she is.

As the plot thickened, I got some clues, but they led me to the wrong conclusion. Mr. Hemmings kept me on my toes with Mark Kane’s investigation which leads to questionable conclusions.

Kane’s ability to get to the meaning of the matter at hand is by understanding how people are motivated. His mental processes of perception are used to get results. The author accomplished the task exceedingly.  

The main characters were well defined especially that of Mark Kane and his Lady Friday Lucy. These two understandably meshed together and charmingly offset each other's weaknesses. It will be interesting to see where their relationship will lead in the series.

I enjoyed the pace and banter of the prose and the serious of the matter at hand – the death of a person under interesting circumstances. I’ll be looking forward to reading another of John Hemming’s novels.
