Book Rating:8.5 Characters: Johnny Red: Falcons’ First Flight (Johnny Red Book 1) First published: February 21st 2011Rating: 8.54 stars GoodReads:Johnny Red: Falcons’ First Flight Review: I read this strip in Battle when I was young, although I came in “halfway through”, so it’s interesting to see how it all started. Taken on its own merits, it works fine, although the continuity is a bit shaky at the start, which implies that the writer was making it up as he went along rather than planning it in advance.

Book Rating:8.1 Characters: Escape from Berlin (Escape From Berlin Book 1) First published: September 23rd 2013Rating: 8.06 stars GoodReads:Escape from Berlin Review: My eyes were wet at least 4 times while I read through the book. This book is a wonderful and terrible and wonderful read. The lives of so many were changed because of the Kindertransport, and the events leading up to the Second World War. This book showed the lives of two German – Jewish girls who had to survive during this time. I have a lot of feelings pertaining to this book, but all I want to say is to read it.

Book Rating:8.1 Characters: The Lavender Keeper (Luc & Lisette Book 1) First published: December 27th 2016Rating: 8.08 stars GoodReads:The Lavender Keeper Review: I loved this book. Kept me up many a late night to keep reading to see what happens next. Historical fiction based around the war and the freedom fighters in France. A few spies thrown in for good measure and you have a great read. I learnt a lot about this period of the war and how many German soldiers hated Hitler’s rule and time in power. At times I had to re read parts to get a handle on the politics of such an era but this was very well written and obviously well researched. The French Promise (Luc & Lisette Book 2) First published: March 19th 2014Rating: 8.24 stars GoodReads:The French Promise Review: If you do yourself one favour this year, you MUST read this book. Absoutely breathtaking and heartbreaking beautiful.

And I’ve gotta say, WOW–this novel blew all my expectations out of the water. I LOVED this book; it sucked me in from page one and didn’t let go. I’ve read and enjoyed Sam Marquis’ thrillers in the past, but Bodyguard is a cut above the rest, and that’s really saying something. Without giving anything away, if you love gripping suspense, complex character dynamics, and

Book Rating:8.7 Characters: The Girl from Berlin: Standartenführer’s Wife (The Girl From Berlin Book 1) First published: September 11th 2015Rating: 8.68 stars GoodReads:The Girl from Berlin: Standartenführer’s Wife Review: An innovative story about a young woman in Nazi Germany. It is easy to ignore the wrongs going on around you. It seems simpler for one to get on with one’s own life, and let others deal with problems. The heroin in this story believes that she is a protestant, when in fact she is a Jew. None the less, the promising ballerina, along with her husband, plays a dangerous game against the Nazis, in her attempts to help the most unfortunate.

It was awesome as a suspenseful story with a lot of spying, intrigue, manipulation, and other details floating around to keep the reader interested. Ellie Midwood does a terrific job of keeping the story suspenseful and delivering details just when the author…

I would recommend it to anyone As Meninas dos Chocolates (Chocolate Girls Book 2) First published: January 21st 2017Rating: 7.94 stars GoodReads:As Meninas dos Chocolates Review: A little disappointed to be honest, started off building a great story during World War Two, but I found it lost itself after the war has ended, a little far fetched, people who lost people during the war never found them, so to find David being reunited with his father was beyond believable although stranger things have happened.
