Lady in Waiting

I just received a review copy of Lady in Waiting by Susan Meissner!

My first 5 impressions of the book are:

  1. The cover art is beautiful.
  2. I want that ring!
  3. I've never read anything by Susan Meissner. I'm excited to get to know a new author.
  4. It's got that new book smell!!!
  5. There's a family tree chart in the front. I love books with charts!
If you wanna get a preview of this book to see if it's for you, here are the first four chapters!

So go check it out and let me know what you think. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the book.

Book Review: Tandem by Tracey Bateman

I haven't read anything by Tracey Bateman before so I have no idea what her style is usually. This book was a slow starter. It took about 1/3 of the book to get going. It's also a sequel. The cover says "A Novel" but it's the sequel to Thirsty, which I haven't read.

All that aside, it was an interesting read. I didn't know it was going to be about vampires. But the cover art and title font is reminiscent of a certain series.

The writing style took a while to get use to. The story was engaging. It did keep me wanting to know how it would all end. I don't know if there's to be a third book in the series but I'm probably gonna check out the first one.

If you are on a vampire binge, I would recommend it. It's a pretty good mystery.

Disclaimer: I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
