Review: Eve

Eve (The Eternal Daughter Book 1) by [Larsen, Patti]Eve by Patti Larsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

In giving full disclosure, I received this novel free because I nominated it in the Kindle Scout program, and boy, am I ever glad I did.

What an incredible story from start to finish. It was so good I could barely put it down. (Even to work, LOL) The way Larson weaves the story is nothing short of stellar. I loved everything about Eve from the characters, to the world, she made everything believable. There is not one moment in this story where I questioned what was happening or who these characters were. Well done, Mrs. Larson.

As a side note I wanted to add that my normal genres are not Folklore, Fantasy, Science Fiction because it's very hard for me to picture a world that doesn't exist, but after reading Eve I may have to try some other novels in this genre before quickly moving on from them. So thank you, Mrs. Larson for opening my eyes to a world I have been blind to in the past.

Murder in 4th HourMurder in 4th Hour by Michael Gregory
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This novel was entered in Kindle Scout program and was one of my first nominations. Unfortunately, it was not selected, but I bought a copy and read it anyways. I'm so glad I did. What a great story from start to finish. A smart mystery that kept me guessing until the very end.

The characters of Jack and Chris are so well developed I felt as if I knew them both. The story moved along precisely right, giving the reader enough detail to visualize the scenes and scenarios, but never boring the audience. The way the two main characters played off each other was nothing short of excellent writing.

I'm not sure why this story wasn't chosen by Kindle Scout. (And we'll probably never know) But, I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good mystery, YA, or a just a great read.
