We Were Sisters by Wendy Clarke
I turn to where I left my baby in his pushchair and pull up short. With a racing heart, I look around wildly, fear gripping my stomach. I only looked away for a moment. The pushchair and my baby are gone.
Our protagonist is Kelly. She is married to Mitch and they have three children; the twins Isabella and Sophie and newborn boy Noah. Just your regular family living in Brighton you’d say. But you never know what goes on in someone’s mind…
The Guilty Mother by Diane Jeffrey
Publisher: HQ Digital
I feel the need to start off with a warning. This review doesn’t go too deep into the how and what of the deaths of infants, yet the book mentions a lot about SIDS or crib deaths. It might trigger emotions and flash-backs for some people.
The Guilty Mother centres around Melissa Slade. She’s a mother of three, with an older son from her previous marriage and her twin baby girls Amber and Ellie. Melissa has it all, but don’t we all have a cross to bear?
Dragonmaster Trilogy book 2 by Katie Cross
This is the next book in the Dragonmaster Trilogy and it continues the story of Isadora and Sanna Spence. Isador and Sanna are sisterwitches and have lived in Letum Wood with the other Dragonmaster families their whole lives. But now the time has come for them to spread their wings and fly.
A book by Caroline Flarity
I love a good ghost story so I was excited to start this book! But I have to say even though I quickly scanned over the summary it took me by surprise. In a good way!
I was expecting a story about a girl going ghost hunting with her father and their adventures along the way. But I was so wrong, it’s not about that at all.
This book contains short stories by Jody Lynn Nye, Katie Cross, Robyn Bennis, Raven Oak, Frog and Esther Jones, Dawn Vogel, Matt Youngmark, Lee French, Connie J. Jasperson, Jeffrey Cook, Katherine Perkins, Jeremy Zimmerman, Edward J. Knight, Elmdea Adams (no amazon profile available), Fulvio Gatti (no amazon profile available), Robert J. McCarter, Lou J. Berger, Ian Berger (no amazon profile available) and Sarah Bartsch.
This collection of short stories appealed to me because it has everything in it that I like in a story. Swords, magic (sorcery) and bad ass women who get shit done. As someone who normally doesn’t read a lot of short stories (I’m more of a series kind of reader) I wasn’t sure what to expect for the story lines, but most of the time I wasn’t disappointed.
