Goodnight, Sleep Tight: What a Wonderful Flight
Goodnight, Sleep Tight: What a Wonderful Flight
Price: $2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Goodnight Night Aviation Machines, July 29, 2014
Say "Goodnight" to various aviation vehicles, while you learn the work they do during the day.

Storyline: Children who love aviation vehicles will enjoy this book and ask for it every night. The text has rhyme and endearing sound effects you can read aloud successfully (I now know how to make airplane sounds)! 5 stars.

Illustrations: I LOVE the illustrations of this book. Love Love Love them. Do Thai Thanh did a fabulous job of illustrating the machines in a warm way. 5 stars.

Brick ABC: An Alphabet Book Illustrated with LEGO Bricks
Brick ABC: An Alphabet Book Illustrated with LEGO Bricks
Price: $1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Lego Fans Will Learn the Alphabet!, July 29, 2014
Each letter of the alphabet is treated to a Lego scene entirely made of creatures and things that begin with that letter. Everything is made of Legos!!!

This book appeals to my boys, who love Legos, and I can see it sparking a Lego-thon where they make their own alphabet scenes.
Storyline: Brings the alphabet in an memorable way with lots of repetition thanks to the letter-themed scenes. 5 stars
Illustrations: The text pages aren't anything special, but the Lego scenes are fabulous! 4.5 stars.

Ignore the cover, this book is great!

The Greatest Blessings
The Greatest Blessings
Price: $2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Family, Friends and Brotherhood Trump Fame, Fortune and Power, July 29, 2014
Fame, Fortune, and Power are three brothers who rule the world. When they fight over which is stronger, their jester suggests they ask a person who never received any of their gifts. Finally they find Boy, who teaches them that family, friends and brotherhood are gifts that outshine fame, fortune and power.

Storyline: While the characters are clearly part of a morality tale, read: no subtlety, the story is an interesting one nonetheless. And the moral of the story is one worth perpetuating. I would admire a more light hand on the theme, and a little bit less on text length, but I enjoyed it enough to give it 3.5 stars.

Illustrations: Fabulous illustrations. I wish there were more of them! Well created and professional and they added a great deal to the story. 5 stars.
Total: 4.5 stars

The Toothless Tooth Fairy
The Toothless Tooth Fairy
by Shanelle Hicks
Edition: Paperback
Price: $11.86
9 used & new from $9.24

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindness Shines in Inner and Outer Beauty, July 29, 2014
Bella's kindness makes her beautiful, inside and out. When her chance to win the Miss Tooth Fairy Smile Contest is sabotaged, Bella reacts first with ingenuity, and then with love toward her enemy. And this forgiveness changed her enemy's heart and countenance.

Storyline: I love a storyline that shows the power of kindness even in the face of underhanded meanness. In real life it might not work so quickly (or so visibly) but courtesy and love is almost always the higher road (although it's a difficult one). A story that includes a pageant could easy be a shallow focus on how beauty is everything--but this story doesn't take it that cheap direction. 5 stars.

Illustrations: Great illustrations full of color, big eyes and fairy wings. Professional and enjoyable. 5 stars.
Total: 5 stars

A Different Place To Die
A Different Place To Die
Price: $4.78

4.0 out of 5 stars A sharp mystery, July 28, 2014
NOTE: The Kindle Book Review received a free copy of this book for an independent, fair, and honest review. We are not associated with the author or Amazon.

The delightfully unlikable civilian inspector Shona Bally drags her superior Police Inspector Tom Quiss into a increasingly bizarre investigation, in which the bodies of elderly couples are found poisoned inside houses not their own. The pace is perfect, and the characters well-matched, with a real and unromantic tension between them. At the climax, the killers' motive is found to be so startling that I balked at it for a moment. The skill of the scene, though, carried me through to a suspension of disbelief. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole book, and would read another adventure with this pair.

The Glass Heart Girl
The Glass Heart Girl
Price: $1.62

4.0 out of 5 stars The Power of True Love, July 28, 2014
When someone experiences a horrific act of abuse and survives, the victim starts going through many stages of grief before the healing process can begin.
Our main character, Alena, is plagued by the turbulent memories of her abuse which she endured at the age of fifteen. She often suffers from terrifying hysteria, panic attacks and a sense of worthlessness and self loathing. Her therapist has diagnosed her with Social Agoraphobia and Gynophobia. Upon hearing this Alena quits therapy. She decides therapy just makes her feel even worse about herself. Alena knows the only people who can truly heal her are God and ultimately herself.
This book is magnificently written. The characters are so well defined. You actually feel like you are taking Alena's journey of harsh self discovery and healing with her.
Can a true act of love really save her?

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely Captivating, July 28, 2014
Even though Remmy Hollis is one of the older members of the Bantorus MC, he still oozes sex appeal.
He is a no-nonsense, hard as nails, kind of man. Remmy is completely devoted to his MC brothers and to the intense biker lifestyle. Over the years, he has watched many of his brothers find "their woman", marry and incorporate their families into the Bantorus MC. He always respected their decisions, but that certainly is not what he wants in his life. His bike fulfills his need for freedom. His raw masculinity makes it easy for him to have great sex with any woman he wants and the loyalty his MC family gives him is all he needs, that is until he meets Natalie.
Natalie comes into Remmy's life carrying a ton of personal baggage. He becomes completely obsessed with her. All he wants is to protect Natalie, help her solve her personal problems and make her happy. When Remmy finds out who her ex-husband is he realizes he is involved in some of her past that pains her. If he tells her the truth, he knows she will leave him. He is plagued with indecision.
Struggling for Justice is the 6th book the Bantorus MC series. Each of these books is a fantastic read!
Debra Kahn is a phenomenal author. She always applies just the right amount of love, loyalty, suspense and action into each of her stories, which makes it nearly impossible to put down once you start reading. I have read every book she has penned. Please keep the books coming, you are one of my favorite authors!

4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating, July 28, 2014
This review is from: Heart of Design (Kindle Edition)
This engaging romantic story is full of witty dialogue which keeps the story fresh and fun. Yet, it has enough action and drama in it to keep the story solid.
Sophie Hartland owns her own interior design business, and she is good at what she does. Sophie prides herself on always being professional. In business, she has a rule which she strictly follows and that is to never date a client. While at a party Sophie meets Ian O'Connor. He is a handsome TV hunk, star of the popular cop show, L.A. Heat. He is Irish, quite the flirt and is known as a playboy. Never the less Sophie is drawn to him. Ian has just purchased a house. He hires Sophie to complete renovate his home. Their attraction is instant to each other but Sophie refuses to break her rule. Before the job is finished the sexual tension between them is so heavy you can hardly turn the pages.
Love this book!
I want to say, thank you, to author Ellen Butler for yet another well written contemporary romance book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Knowing How to Make Money is Not Always A Good Thing, July 27, 2014
This review is from: Free Money (Kindle Edition)
Barry Vass comes up with yet another way of "not" counting cards while playing blackjack. His main character, Jimmy Spencer, is a floorman at the fabulous Omni casino in Las Vegas and knows all the ins and outs of the game and casino life. His nemesis is a guy named Buddy who exists to make Jimmy's and all the floor people's life hell. He also has a mixed breed dog named Rex who is more than slightly demented.

Jimmy has a best bud named Eddie Roberts who comes up with a startling can't lose way of taking one hundred dollars and turning it into $10,000+. Eddie is foolish enough to put the scheme on the internet, but leaves out the final key. All of a sudden, Jimmy's life is turned upside down. Not to mention poor Eddie's. Chaos reigns.

Finding himself being stalked by really bad guys who want that final key, Jimmy is off and running. Really running...like for his life. Coupled with a busty Vegas waitress named Naomi, they begin to try to avoid bullets being shot at them. A whole lot of bullets.

Free Money by Barry Vass is a light and fun read. It has all the information and characterization to make it a really good late night book. When you reach the end you won't be sure if you want to be Jimmy and have that key, or run for your life.
