A Barb the Zany Old Lady: Howling on Hold by EJ Russell

Rating: 3 stars out of 5 I admit, I was attracted to this story by the cover and the blurb—and the fact that it was a standalone since I haven’t read any of the author’s other stories and I don’t like starting in the middle of a series. But I was disappointed in that there… Continue reading A Barb the Zany Old Lady: Howling on Hold by EJ Russell

A Caryn Review: Rise (Dancing with the Lion #2) by Jeanne Reames

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars I am a huge fan of historical fiction, but I recognize that it is inherently much more difficult to write a historical biography, and especially when the character written about is almost mythical.  As Dr. Reames mentions in her postscript, the information about Alexander is nebulous, contradictory, overlaid with… Continue reading A Caryn Review: Rise (Dancing with the Lion #2) by Jeanne Reames
