July Book Reviews, Part Two @bakeandwrite @meg82159 @harmony_kent @MarciaMeara @BetteAStevens #BookishTuesday

A great mix of reviews from Mae Clair–one of which just happens to be for my little book of poetry, Summer Magic, which, like much poetry, is often overlooked these days. It was great to find it in this post, along with all these other super books. There’s something for everyone included. Check it out and then pass it along, if you would. Thanks! And thanks to Mae Clair for her wonderful comments on Summer Magic. πŸ™‚

Hello, and welcome to the second half of my book reviews for the month of July. If you missed, part one, you can find it here. Summer heat was nearly unbearable for several days this month, but I did manage to devour a number of novels and novellas poolside. To read the blurbs for each, click the Amazon link. My thoughts on each are below . . .

I’m a mystery/suspense fan so these stories hit all the right notes for me. The collection is varied with several authors contributing multiple tales to the collection. Read one or two at a time or gobble several back to back. The authors are great at transporting you into twisted worlds of murder most foul. You’re bound to find your…

  1. Thanks for sharing the post, Marcia. I was happy to spread the word about Summer Magic along with the other books. I REALLY loved your collection of poems. The imagery and moments you evoked were so vivid I know I will go back and read this again!

    • Thank you so much, Mae! I need to write some new poetry. I’ve been so busy on both of my series, I haven’t indulged my love for it in a long time. It could be a great way to relax the brain between books. Or chapters. Or paragraphs. πŸ˜€

      And it was my VERY great pleasure to share this post, even without the fact that Summer Magic is part of it. Some great stuff reviewed here! πŸ™‚ Thanks, and I’ll be watching for more of these in the future. (I’m braced for Shark Week.) πŸ˜€

  2. Thanks for sharing these reviews, Marcia. I bought Summer Magic in June last year and thought I’d left reviews for you on Amazon and Goodreads. It appears that the intention was there but the brain wandered off somewhere else. I shall remedy this post-haste. I do know that I wrote to you at the time and told you how much I enjoyed them and so I did make a start…
    If nothing appears in the next 24 hours you may want to guide me gently back on track! ❀ πŸ™‚ ❀

    • I’m just happy you reminded me that you enjoyed it. I seem to remember you were having some trouble leaving ANY reviews on Amazon at the time, and that’s probably what happened. But in general, I know that most readers aren’t drawn to poetry these days, so for my money, every single review it gets is wonderful. And just knowing you enjoyed it is a great feeling! ❀ πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Staci. I need to make a list of special features on other blogs that I love sharing, like your Friday roundup of links with inspirational quotes. Mae’s review posts should be on it, along with a couple of others that are super special to pass along. It was a great group of writers and books to be included with, and I was really pleased to see Summer Magic get a bit of love! πŸ˜€ ❀
