Recommended For Solid Story and Delivery

Cover for Thicker Than Water by David Campbell

Thicker Than Water (thriller)
David Campbell
Sticking with families of Irish ancestry, this thriller is set mostly in Boston and New York. Although there’s nothing much new in this tale of revenge, the main character’s attempts to maintain his everyman identity is well portrayed, with his abilities well foreshadowed. There’s wasn’t a point where the action wasn’t believable. Extremely violent, this thriller is solid, avoiding that current traditional publishing tactic of losing me in the last few chapters by throwing in a plot twist that makes no sense. A good thriller for a short, satisfying read.

Cover for Glass Slipper Scandal by Tansy Rayner Roberts

Glass Slipper Scandal (Castle Charming Series) (Twisted Fairy tale)
Tansy Rayner Roberts
It’ s short, not very original in most parts, but also a lot of fun to read! I claimed it for the Summer Reading For Everyone, and enjoyed it over a couple of tea breaks and one lunch-break. The underplot on ink drew me in, while the tabloid-esque writing and setting appealed to me. It’s well done, and not dark as most twisted fairy-tales are. I especially enjoyed that it maintains the light, fluffiness without getting its tropes mixed, and despite all expectations, bringing in some deeper depth to characters in believable ways.

Enjoy. And don’t forget to support writers by leaving a review or rating at your favorite stores/libraries.
