About the Book:

Following on the heels of her critically acclaimed prequel novels Dark Alchemy and Mercury Retrograde comes the first installment in Laura Bickle’s dark contemporary fantasy series, Nine of Stars, a Wildlands Novel

Winter has always been a deadly season in Temperance, but this time, there’s more to fear than just the cold…

As the daughter of an alchemist, Petra Dee has faced all manner of occult horrors—especially since her arrival in the small town of Temperance, Wyoming. But she can’t explain the creature now stalking the backcountry of Yellowstone, butchering wolves and leaving only their skins behind in the snow. Rumors surface of the return of Skinflint Jack, a nineteenth-century wraith that kills in fulfillment of an ancient bargain.

The new sheriff in town, Owen Rutherford, isn’t helping matters. He’s a dangerously haunted man on the trail of both an unsolved case and a fresh kill—a bizarre murder leading him right to Petra’s partner Gabriel. And while Gabe once had little to fear from the mortal world, he’s all too human now. This time, when violence hits close to home, there are no magical solutions.

It’s up to Petra and her coyote sidekick Sig to get ahead of both Owen and the unnatural being hunting them all—before the trail turns deathly cold.

What’s it like to step off a bus in a foreign country 3,500 miles from home and feel like you were always meant to be there?

What’s it like to be enchanted by history and a city that has been the center of trade and multiple empires for over 2000 years?

What’s it like to volunteer at the World Famous San Diego Zoo for over 20 years, only to find out 10 year olds know more than you do?

To find out the answer to these and thousands of other questions, come fly with me and my pretty girl with a cape as we travel the world and life!

 

My Review:  When I received an email from Mr. Boze offering up his book to read I was thrilled this book was completely right up my alley.   I am so glad I received his email because this book kept me up until the wee hours of the morning reading.  In short, it was delightful.  He has been everywhere had the opportunities I only dream about.  This was an adventure-filled love story that will pull at the heart strings while making you laugh at his outrageous stories.

I found his stories outrageous yet believable and his way with words made me feel like I was sitting next to him in the passenger seat.   The titles of his chapters were amazing and I found at times I was like uh oh what could possibly happen next.

This story had me smiling and I have to admit they have a beautiful love story that I am so happy I got to take part in through reading this amazing book.  I can only imagine what it was like when they experienced his stories first hand.  This was an amazing book and I am so happy I got to read it.

 

I downloaded a copy of the book on Kindle Unlimted.  If you have a copy of the book I highly urge you to read it.

 

Midnight Mistletoe by Kathleen Lee

Summary: When Peter finds himself caught in a speed trap in the same small Wyoming town where he was once a foster child, six weeks of community service feels like an eternity. Until he runs across an old friend who seems more than happy to see him, and the attraction is instantaneous. But can the magic of Christmas and a love he’d never known be enough to make him think about giving up his wandering ways?
Through the years, Kevin found himself wondering about Peter and where he wound up when he was pulled from their community into yet another “home.” But when they reconnect again, he discovers that in all his travels, Peter never had a real home. As Kevin’s feelings deepen, he knows the one thing he needs to do to keep Peter is show him that true happiness boils down to opening yourself to love. And a little mistletoe doesn’t hurt either.

My Review:  This is a m/m contemporary romance short story set in Wyoming.  I really enjoyed the story and it gave me a little Christmas in May.  I loved how Kevin & Peter played off each other and that they had a great dynamic.
