This denouement of this Hitchcockian thriller will take your breath away. While watching her various neighbors from her window, an agoraphobic believes she witnesses a murder. Did she, or was it just an alcohol- or drug-induced hallucination? The questions keep mounting - what caused her separation from her family? Is her intense agoraphobia related to that? Is the son of the presumably dead woman being abused? What secrets do the victim’s family hold? The twists and turns take you all the way to the end! Loved it. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
This is a beautiful, complex first book in a new fantasy trilogy rich with the feel of Middle Eastern folklore. It is a breathless adventure, part human - part fantasy, through 19th century Egypt, Turkey and the Arabian peninsula. There are humans, djinn, demons and a brass city protected by magic. The author painstakingly develops a complex world view with richly developed characters and conflicts. You will be drawn thoroughly into this world, and left clamoring for the next installment. Brilliant! ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
Alternating between the voice of the Child Finder who herself was once a missing child with a lost past and has been hired to find a missing and presumed dead young girl, and the voice of the imaginative and heart-rending Snow Girl, this evocative novel tells the story of looking for someone lost and ultimately finding oneself. This haunting novel will resonate with you long after you have finished it. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
“I am a woman who was born at the wrong time” Related as a letter from Mata Hari to her lawyer, this ingenious piece of historical fiction tells her story as only she could; as a misunderstood, unappreciated and independent woman. Was she a spy or was it all the result of an unfounded, malicious allegation? Coehlo re-imagines her life based on nonfiction accounts, and it was a fascinating read to the bitter end. Quick and enjoyable. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
This luminous piece of historical fiction is set in early 20th century Irish-Catholic Brooklyn. It is a tale of how a man’s death resonates through subsequent generations whose faith and beliefs have been shaped by their religion and superstitions. The author beautifully and non-judgmentally relates how they are doing the best they can with the lives they are given, flawed but good-intentioned, in making choices on love and vocation. Gorgeous. ~ Reviewed by Tambra Johnson Reap
