Little Known, Highly Recommended

Stephanie Barr book cover Beast Within Bete series

Beast Within (science fiction, romance)
Stephanie Barr
The first in the Bete trilogy, I enjoyed this pioneering story with shape-shifters more than I thought I would. Combining the familiarity of crashed ship on a new world with shifters trying to keep their secret in close proximity to regular humans made for a interesting situation. I enjoyed the characters and the humour, and found that by midpoint, I couldn’t put it down. I’ll be looking for the rest of this trilogy!
I won this book in a giveaway.

Book cover Roger Stelljes Deadly Stillwater

Deadly Stillwater (crime, police procedural)
Roger StelljesSet in Minnesota and surroundings, this was a solidly paced and plotted story with engaging characters, all making for a very satisfying read. I liked that the plot tied up the lose ends without making unbelievable twists. The heroes could have been a little more vulnerable, but with the intrepid reporter helping out, it nicely balanced things out for me. Another series to look out for, I think!

Green Light (British crime)
JG Alva
A prequel novella in the Sutton Mills series, this one had me reading it straight through, much to my surprise.
Sutton, an artist with a questionable past, makes for an intriguing anti-hero, and his circle of friends are varied and well presented. A well-rounded story and a good introduction to the series, but like so many of British crime stories, it’s the characters and emotions that are the draw rather than a neatly-tied up plot or ending.
I downloaded this in Prolific Works giveaway.

Back next month with a recommendation or two and the last giveaway for this year!
