Black Friday - the official opening of the Holiday Shopping Season - and Patrice Marcum is stuck in the middle of her local superstore with a crying infant, a near hysterical desire to just abandon the diapers and milk she desperately needs, and the snowstorm of the century dumping a half-foot of snow on the parking lot outside. She needs a miracle.

Inconsistent

Overall

Reviewed: 08-07-18

the storyline itself is basically good. The inconsistencies, however, drive me crazy. He can see spirits when she is touching him but she can't. But then later they are both talking to Spirits in the same room, together, not touching. the editing narration slipped several times as well. Mispronunciations are not as serious but are still annoying.

Let's get one thing straight - Ivy Wilde is not a heroine. In fact she's probably the last witch in the world you'd call if you needed a magical helping hand, regardless of her actual abilities. If it were down to Ivy, she'd spend all day every day on her sofa, where she could watch TV, munch junk food, and talk to her feline familiar to her heart's content. However, when a bureaucratic disaster ends up with Ivy as the victim of a case of mistaken identity, she's yanked very unwillingly into Arcane Branch.

Hearing an American talk about their flat and going up the lift and having a Cuppa just sounds too weird for words. if the story is going to take place in Britain with all of the British vocabulary, you really need a British narrator. This one just did not work. Thank heavens the story was good. it was jarring, however, too hear those words used with the wrong accent.

Harley Vincent is resigned to life in the human world. Sure, being a margay shifter is half her nature, but life among humans gives her the freedom to roam and do as she pleases. That is, until anti-shifter extremists target her, putting her life in immediate danger.

I love shifter stories, but Shades of Grey Wolf, not so much. If you are into the whole male dominant thing, and "alternative entry"... read it. If not, use your fast forward. The rest of the story is okay.

Once, I was nothing. Hungry, abandoned, wandering, and alone. An adolescent street rat fighting for crumbs. Then a chance encounter changed my entire world. A man in an expensive suit asked me how much my life was worth. I didn't have an answer because I didn't know. He asked if I thought it was worth killing for. Impulsively, I said yes.... He found me, then fostered me, and, in the interim, turned me into a killing machine.

The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus is a 1902 children's book, written by L. Frank Baum, author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The book is the origin story of Santa Claus and persuasively explains how he began to deliver toys to children, why he arrives via chimney at night, and how he came to travel by a sleigh pulled by reindeer.

When Lily Jacobs was born, she inherited Fazire - a genie. Her family had three wishes and they'd only ever used one so Fazire was stuck in the human world. This worked since he'd become a member of the family anyway. Even with a genie, Lily's young life wasn't perfect. To escape the kids making her miserable at school, Lily buried herself in romance novels. One day, when the teasing was just too much, she used one of her wishes.

It was an okay book. Not enough genie, but ok. What I did not like was when she said,"No," the "hero" just kept pushing. That just isn't good. He was domineering and cranky, withdrawn and yet overbearing. His background gave him reasons not to be trusting, yes. Crabby with a heart of gold, though, is still crabby.

there were enough twists and turns that I wasn't sure exactly how things were going to turn out so I kept listening. Parts were very predictable and other parts were well done. I am sure I would not listen to it a second time but it was interesting the first time around.
I am pretty middle-of-the-road about this book. Hence the three stars.

At the beginning of the book, you are RIGHT there with the protagonist, minute by minute. Excellently written. You care about the characters, and feel a part of the story. Then when it gets really exciting, at the climax, you (and the protagonist) are excluded. As a daily deal book, it was still very worth the money. If I had paid full price, I might have felt cheated a bit. That said, I would listen to it again. I only felt cheated because the rest of the book was so good.

1/4 through and I haven't found a character I truly like. The author's descriptions of the characters don't match the characters descriptions of the characters. I couldn't find the advertised comedy. Stereotypical denigrating, unpleasant characters abound. The descriptions of the vomit and the filth are just not to my taste at all. I love trying new Authors, but I don't think I'll come back for a second on this one. Couldn't finish the first one.

On a night flight from London to Boston, Ted Severson meets the stunning and mysterious Lily Kintner. Sharing one too many martinis, the strangers begin to play a game of truth, revealing very intimate details about themselves. Ted talks about his marriage that's going stale and his wife, Miranda, who he's sure is cheating on him. Ted and his wife were a mismatch from the start - he the rich businessman, she the artistic free spirit - a contrast that once inflamed their passion but has now become a cliché.

So much was unexpected when you thought you actually knew what was going to happen right from the synopsis.
Make no assumptions!
