Our Beck Valley Books review of After the Goode: A Jake Roberts Novel (Book 3) by Cary Allen Stone 'a wonderful page turning thriller' .....

"Welcome back to my new favourite detective Jake Roberts who has recently been forced to retire from the police force. On his vacation he is asked to consult on a murder case.

The excellent thing about this authors style of writing is that he keeps the text and language simple with exceptional character traits of the main characters. He cleverly let's the reader know who the killer is and an excellent game of cat and mouse ensues between killer and detective, which provides a wonderful page turning thriller. The writer shows a talent for how the night club show scene works and what traits and dedication to that particular lifestyle you need to be a success. As a reader you will find yourself totally engrossed in following Jake's new choice of lifestyle and will find out what he really wants to do.

The story keeps the reader totally enrapt till the last page and finishes on a real climax. The creation of Jake Roberts rates alongside James Patterson's Alex Cross and Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks, who all concentrate on the personal psyche and lives of the detectives."

Our Beck Valley Books review of Book Review - To Fall in Love Again by David Burnett, Author 'Another great read from this wonderful author'.....

"A lovely gentle romance which nicely focuses on a mature relationship and all the joys and negatives that this can bring. It's a nice mellow read with delightful characters that you will want to relax with and enjoy.

We start with such a sad beginning as before Drew's wife dies she makes him promise that he will remarry and be happy. On the other side of the coin we have Amy whose cheating husband kills himself on the day divorce papers are filed. Fates plays a heavy hand to steer them both onto the path of romance, with a little help of friends and family and of course Drew's adorable and funny grandson.

Everything would be fine, if romance and their own personal feelings were all that mattered. But Drew comes from what Amy feels is like another world, with money, extravagant houses and stature, how can she possibly belong? Family are an important part in both lives and their children are obviously protective of their parents and questions are raised about the motives of the other half in the relationship. On top of which both have the grief of their loved ones. They want to be in love but will all this baggage be way too much for them to deal with? I have to say that at one point in the story I wasn't sure which way the relationship would go.

A story of loss, betrayal, love and hope. Another great read from this wonderful author."

BRAND NEW RELEASE !!
Crashing into Love by Melissa Foster had Miki's Hope​ 'blushing' following hunky Jake & Fiona's #hot story....

"This is an extremely steamy novel so it may not be for everyone-but it is a true Love Story with a Happy ending. Some of the scenes even had me blushing and I do not blush easily!

Everyone deserves a second chance--even if she did break Jake Braden's heart in about a thousand different pieces, don't they? They were so much in love as teenagers and then Fiona listened to her Mom and broke off with Jake to pursue her college education and experience other people. Fiona's parents had just divorced---need I say more? Well here it is MANY years later and Fiona just can't get Jake out of her blood--she decides to try to get him back. Jake is now a famous stuntman and a player -he has walls built round his heart and has sworn never to allow himself to be hurt again. It takes a bit--but those walls eventually come tumbling down--but there is still their very different lifestyles to navigate. Can they do it?"

'I was laughing so hard there were tears running down my cheeks' Miki's Hope reviewing Hot Flash by Kathy Carmichael​ ...

"I read this from cover to cover-no way I was stopping until I hit THE END!! Jill Storm's ex husband was now a woman--her son was a wanna be artist--her Dad was in jail for committing white collar crimes and her Mom--well let's just say she is hilarious--as long as she isn't YOUR Mom!! Of course I have one almost as nosy and manipulative. Jill just happens to be a sou chef at a prestigious hotel in Las Vegas but that isn't going to help pay for college tuition for her soon to be college bound son. Then imagine turning 40, being in semi menopause and deciding you really need to find a husband to help pay for college for your son. She sends out a questionnaire to happily married woman and tries to go from there. Enter her son's third grade teacher who is totally unacceptable. To add to the merriment add in 4 wonderful friends who all try to help each other out--or at least help drink each other out of their misery.

This is the author that also wrote Chasing Charlie - another novel that had me laughing. If you like to laugh--really laugh then you have to read Kathy Carmichael's novels!!"

Our Beck Valley Books Review for Mind Over Murder: A Jake Roberts Novel Book 2 by Cary Allen Stone 'excellent crime novel'

"The second instalment of the escapades and adventures of Jake Roberts is an excellent follow up to the first book, After the Evil. The detective is facing a very puzzling case of yet another serial killer who is leaving no clues behind. He finds that he has to turn to Lori Powers who had fled the USA after leaving a trail of dead men and now has been captured and awaiting trial.

I really like the authors' ability to touch on the human side of the character especially the emotion they feel and the psyche that drives them. He is a no hold bar writer and takes you into the dark side of a persons persona which leads to excitement, tension and a lust for revenge. A very easy book to read and follow.

Although this is the second novel involving Jake Roberts it can be read without reading the first as the author explains as we go through the previous history.

Another excellent crime novel and a must read for all fans of that genre. Again the only disappointment is the fact that you will finish the book quickly."

Our Beck Valley Books Review - 101+ Secrets from Nutrition School that you need to know by Lynne Dorner Aware of This? with Lynne Dorner ' I will definitely be reading and re-reading this over and over again' ......

"This book pleasantly surprised me, it was not all food related as I had expected it to be, although it does include lots of great valuable food and body information, it is also a focus on bringing a balance to all parts of your life so you feel 'whole' again and are achieving what you really want. I believe that things happen for a reason, fate, which is why the chance of reading this now happened when I totally needed it. If your looking for wellbeing and balance to your life in general, this is a great place to start.

The author prompts you to ask What one thing I can do for my health today? Through her own journey and experiences she shares a vast amount of important facts, sometimes eye openers, industry secrets, other principles and beliefs and things you had not even thought about. Explaining that we can achieve much more in the long run by doing change in small easy steps so we keep the motivation that we had in the beginning.

This was a very easy book to follow and understand, there was a nice tone with some humor to the writing with fun pictures throughout to extenuate the facts. I made notes of the facts I really wanted to focus on and I will definitely be reading and re-reading this over and over again as I continue to improve my own 'wellbeing'.

On the first food shopping trip with my husband while reading the book I was actively looking for more natural local grown food, comparing the number of ingredients in products (was there more than 5!!), pointing out all these to the husband and I found myself holding back from some of the items I would normally buy. I remember thinking as I was walking around the store to myself 'The author would be proud."

As the author says, "Put your heart into it and enjoy the ride!"
