Imperfect Justice, Book Review

Imperfect Justice by Cara Putman

THE POLICE SAY THE WOMAN WAS A MURDERER. EMILIE WESLEY KNOWS THEY CAN’T BE TALKING ABOUT HER CLIENT . . . CAN THEY?
To the world it seems obvious: Kaylene Adams killed her daughter and then was shot by police. Attorney Emilie Wesley knows a different story: Kaylene would never hurt anyone and was looking for a way out of a controlling, abusive relationship. Her death shakes Emilie’s belief that she can make a difference for women in violent marriages. Self-doubt plagues her as she struggles to continue her work in the wake of the tragedy.
Reid Billings thought he knew his sister—right up until he learned how she died. He discovers a letter from Kaylene begging him to fight for custody of her daughters if anything should happen to her. No attorney in her right mind would support an uncle instead of the father in a custody case, but Kaylene’s letter claims Emilie Wesley will help him.
Thrown together in a race to save Kaylene’s surviving daughter, Emily and Reid pursue the constantly evasive truth. If they can hang on to hope together, can they save a young girl—and find a future for themselves in the process?

My Thoughts: First of all I did receive this book from the publisher to review, but all opinions are my own. Starting out, I could immediately tell this would be a book that I'd like. While this is the second book in the series Imperfect Justice can be read as a stand alone! I loved the combination of the characters, romance, mystery and drama for sure a good read!

You're Gonna Love Me, Book Review

You're Gonna Love Me by Robin Lee Hatcher

Who knew fate could twist a tragedy into a second chance at love?
Samantha Winters lives her life the way a good accountant should—measured, deliberate, and safe. After watching her father die in a tragic skiing accident, she decided never to allow risk into her life again. But she didn’t count on falling for Nick Chastain, who embodies everything she doesn’t want in her safely constructed world.
Against Samantha’s warnings, Nick plans a dangerous kayaking trip over spring break. Furious that he’s so careless with his life, she ends their fledgling relationship with harsh words.
Two years later, Samantha is desperately in need of a change. When she learns her grandmother has had an accident and is in need of a caretaker, Samantha quickly packs her bags and heads to Thunder Creek, Idaho. But nothing could prepare her for the surprise awaiting her in her grandmother’s hospital room . . . Nick.
With the charming backdrop of small-town friends, beloved cousins, and a whole church congregation rooting for them, can they set aside the disastrous ending of their first try at love? Has Nick changed enough to meet Samantha in the middle—and can she realize that a risk in love might be worth taking?

My Thoughts: First of all this is a book that was given to me to review by the publisher but of course all opinions are my own. Starting out, as you know I love romance novels (a bit of a guilty pleasure) so of course I wanted to check out this book. I love that it's a bit of a try again thing, like the characters redeeming themselves. There's everything you could want too. The drama, is all there and it really makes you want to keep reading until the end. A great weekend read, especially for the winter! 


The Comic Book Story of Video Games, Book Review

The Comic Book Story of Video Games
The Incredible History of the Electronic Gaming Revolution

By Jonathan Hennessy, art by Jack McGowan

A complete, illustrated history of video games--highlighting the machines, games, and people who have made gaming a worldwide, billion-dollar industry/artform--told in a graphic novel format.

Author Jonathan Hennessey and illustrator Jack McGowan present the first full-color, chronological origin story for this hugely successful, omnipresent artform and business. Hennessey provides readers with everything they need to know about video games--from their early beginnings during World War II to the emergence of arcade games in the 1970s to the rise of Nintendo to today's app-based games like Angry Birds and Pokemon Go. Hennessey and McGowan also analyze the evolution of gaming as an artform and its impact on society. Each chapter features spotlights on major players in the development of games and gaming that contains everything that gamers and non-gamers alike need to understand and appreciate this incredible phenomenon.

My Thoughts: I was super happy to get this book from the publisher because it's pretty rare that I get to review a comic book! Of course as usual all opinions are my own. The whole book was so much fun! I loved the retro comic book artwork. It goes through a history of video games and touches on a lot of different characters in the field. I was impressed with how much that was included and the book was still fun!

The Sound of Rain, Book Review

The Sound of Rain by Sarah Loudin Thomas

Judd Markley is a hardworking coal miner who rarely thinks much past tomorrow until he loses his brother--and nearly his own life--in a mine cave-in. Vowing never to enter the darkness of a mine again, he leaves all he knows in West Virginia to escape to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It's 1954, the seaside community is thriving, and Judd soon hires on with a timber company. 

Larkin Heyward's life in Myrtle Beach is uncomplicated, mostly doing volunteer work and dancing at the Pavilion. But she dreams of one day doing more--maybe moving to the hollers of Kentucky to help the poor children of Appalachia. But she's never even met someone who's lived there--until she encounters Judd, the newest employee at her father's timber company. 

Drawn together in the wake of a devastating hurricane, Judd and Larkin each seek answers to what tomorrow will bring. As opposition rises against following their divergent dreams, they realize that it may take a miracle for them to be together.


My Thoughts: I received The Sound of Rain from the publisher in exchange for reviewing it, but of course all opinions are my own. Judd Markley and Larkin Hayward lead such different lives that you can't really see them together at the beginning. I love how the story evolves around them. This is one of those books you'll want to read, especially as a relaxing evening or weekend piece.
