I firmly believe the author was one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, writers of historical fiction. This first of 7 volumes in Dunnett’s masterpiece of a series (The Lymond Chronicles) takes us back to 16th century Scotland where the fate of the young Mary Queen of Scots and her throne are the target of both English and French machinations, and whose only salvation may lie in the hands of an accused traitor. A rollicking tale that will have the reader engrossed to the very end and clamoring for the next installment Queen’s Play ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all? The author explores this concept with the story of a mother and her adult daughter in the aftermath of a shooting, which sends the daughter into hiding and onto a search to discover her mother’s hidden past. Not only does she come to realize her mother is not what she seemed, but she in turn finds her true self. I have loved the author’s Will Trent and Grant County series, and her new stand-alone mystery does not disappoint! A great read. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
This wonderful debut novel takes place in early WWII London where our heroine Emmeline thinks she has landed the perfect job as a war correspondent. Instead she finds she is merely the assistant to the old-fashioned writer of Henrietta Helps, a totally unhelpful and staid advice column for women, so she takes it upon herself to instead clandestinely send kind and modern responses to the readers. The book follows the escapades that ensue. Although the book seems at first a charming and light-hearted romp, the reader is reminded of the pluckiness and daily acts of heroism of the British during these turbulent times. I found the book to be fun, quick, and totally delightful. A great summer read! ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
This is a twisty, unique and entertaining take-off of the classic British mystery. Uniquely told from the author's often ironic point of view, this delightfully witty romp follows him as he unwillingly plays Watson to Detective Hawthorne's Sherlock while the detective attempts to solve the mystery of the murder (or was it suicide?) of a woman who had just planned her own funeral. Because of the unusual perspective, I felt like I was right there with them, drawn into the twist and turns all the way to the surprising conclusion. I LOVED it, and can't wait for Horowitz's next mystery! ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
Hannah’s marvelous new novel gives us both the tale of the struggling Allbright family who uprooted and started a new life in the wilderness of Alaska in 1974, but also the story of the fierce, lonely 13-year-old Leni who not only finds a place to belong but discovers her own inner strength and worth. The reader endures along with them not only the hardships of homesteading, the grueling and never-ending winter, but also the fiercely independent community of strong men and women that help them find the strength to survive not only the elements but the fracturing of family. This book will keep you enthralled to the very end and stay with you a long, long time. Powerful, enduring, spectacular, just like the Alaskan wilderness it portrays. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
