    Unfinished Justice is a novel set in 1935 and based on the true story of Ed Bowman, a reporter for a small town newspaper in Virginia. When Ed covers the murder trial of Gunther Buford, he writes an exclusive article after overhearing a confidential conversation between Buford’s defense attorneys that virtually guarantees a guilty verdict. The man is convicted and sentenced to die in the electric chair. Buford breaks out of prison, intent on seeking revenge by killing the reporter who wrote the story. But in the ensuing violence, Ed’s wife is killed instead and Buford flees. In an ironic twist Ed is convicted of his wife’s murder and sentenced to life on a chain gang. For years Ed labors while being viciously abused. Finally, after four long years of planning his escape, Ed manages to gain his freedom. Determined to locate Gunther Buford and bring him to justice, Ed tracks Buford to the small town of Wendover, Utah where the man has a new identity and occupation, and has also changed his appearance. Ed now has to determine who Buford really is, find evidence to prove he killed his wife, then clear his own name by bringing him to justice. Unfinished Justice is a fast paced, riveting story filled with injustice, danger and even some romance. Extensive research by Janis Hutchinson went into this hard core novel that depicts life on chain gangs back in the 30’s. The descriptions are vivid and shocking to read, yet very engaging and enthralling. The characters are well developed and fleshed out. Ed evolves throughout the story and comes to realize that God was with him the whole time. He is a strong, likeable character who is relatable. The author did a great job with all the characters and descriptions, and I felt like I knew them and was there with them. Unfinished Justice is a fascinating read which features a time in the past that rarely gets portrayed in historical fiction novels. It reminds me of the fugitive, but slightly different. The harshness of chain gang life is depicted accurately and brilliantly. This is one of the best suspense, thriller and fugitive type stories I have ever read. It is a gripping page-turner. I couldn’t put it down and kept reading faster and faster to find out what was going to happen next. Janis Hutchinson is an excellent writer and has done a beautiful job with Unfinished Justice. The storyline is full and exciting. The ending is intense and satisfying. I would read this one again―it’s that good. Chick Lit Cafe highly recommends Unfinished Justice by Janis Hutchinson.

    High Flying by Kaylin McFarren is an enthralling, suspenseful thriller. Readers will be on the edge of their seat while devouring this electrifying, 5 star novel and story. Starting with a punch we open the first page and meet Skylar Haines, immediately entering into her dark world. Skylar, despite her awful upbringing, is a dynamic young woman who we can instantly root for. What caused her psychological need to hurt herself is unfolded, like layers of an onion, throughout the book. With an absorbing, fast-paced plot that keeps you turning the pages quickly, and Kaylin McFarren’s strong writing style you will find it hard to put this book down. Time travel stories can be confusing, but not so with High Flying. The story only covers three time periods, which are clearly defined and easy to follow. As with all great time travel tales we are presented with second chances and an opportunity to right a wrong. What I loved about Skylar’s adventure wasn’t so much the chance to change the past, but an opportunity to accept the present. Will understanding the past help her to embrace herself in the future? Will the pain of the past bring enough healing into the present to allow her to love in the future? Skylar is such a strong character and seems so self-reliant, and yet the need for affection and a loving touch is always just under the surface making her so endearing. There are other remarkable main characters in the book, like her father Dylan, holding the male-lead. He is a complex person, and I couldn’t make out if he was good or bad… until the end. Very clever writing! There is a good mix of supporting roles, but Skylar is the star who shines brightest. Most of the book takes place in 1997 in Chino CA and revolves around drug smuggling. Skylar finds herself in-between police and criminals and ends up in some tricky situations. All she really wants to do is save her friend but this seems impossible as she is sucked into an adrenaline packed caper with ruthless killers. This story is a gripping, page-turning, adventure thriller, holding your attention until the very last page. With outstanding well-developed characters, an exciting storyline and plot and the author’s unique expressive writing style, High Flying by Kaylin McFarren is an absolute must-read novel and highly recommended by Chick Lit Café.

Official Review, ILoveUniqueBooks.com (5 out of 5 stars) Skylar Haines has struggled with personal demons most of her life, going to dark extremes to subdue anxieties rooted in her tragic past. On a perpetual hunt for the next adrenaline hit, she discovers a passion for flying and becomes a hard-edged stunt pilot, verging on obsession. In the sky, following her most daring airshow, she encounters a mysterious storm and almost collides with another aircraft, sending her into a perilous dive. Guided by a mysterious voice, she manages a safe landing but finds herself transported to another time. Eight months before she was born. One week before her father was murdered. Though baffled by her circumstances, Skylar soon arrives at a single certainty: Before her lies a remarkable chance to change her family's destiny drastically for the better -- or possibly even worse -- depending on the choices she makes, before her window of opportunity closes.

    Mia never felt the need to speak up for herself. Not with three protective sisters, an assertive boyfriend, and a bestie who has no problem stealing the attention for herself. With a nervous bladder (which strikes at the worst possible times) and a terrible fear of public speaking, Mia is comfortable with the way things are. That is, until she comes home to find her things packed by the door and faces the news that her boyfriend and best friend have fallen in love. Now homeless and anything but comfortable, Mia’s sisters come to the rescue (as usual) by helping her land the perfect apartment—but a colossal mishap lands gorgeous bad boy Logan Miller on her doorstep with a key and a lease contract of his own. In exchange for a free month’s stay, Logan agrees to help Mia find the voice and confidence she now desperately craves. The goal? To finally stand up for herself and give her exes what they deserve. It’s not revenge. It’s Karma.

    ‘My mom leans back, smiles, and strokes my cheek. “That’s all right, Charlie. Never you mind. You just got soft living with your grandparents, is all.

    The extraordinary travels of a young, alone and broke psychic. The heart-warming and adventurous true story of a young woman on her own at age seventeen, broke and surrounded by talkative spirits that don’t want to go away. Living in-between the physical world and the spirit realm, yet feeling a stranger in both, Sherrie Dillard criss-crossed the country by bus, train and hitchhiking in a search for answers. Along the way she was led to help the poor and homeless on skid row, install water systems in Mayan Indian villages, live alone in a tent in the mountains and make art with juvenile offenders. It was in these diverse environments that she came face to face with saints, angels and dark spirits and learned to trust her psychic ability. From her early secret encounters with spirits who guided and ultimately saved her life, Sherrie Dillard finally accepted that what made her different and odd, was also her greatest gift. I’ve Never Met A Dead Person I Didn’t Like, is a powerful story for anyone who listens to - or doubts their own intuition and the presence of their loved ones on the other side. Even in our darkest hour, in the depths of loneliness and overwhelming challenges, divine guidance and miracles are always present.

    No Pit So Deep (The Cody Musket Story Book 1) by James Nathaniel Miller, II is a remarkable story and novel which everyone must read – 5 Big Stars! This story leaves me speechless. This is an emotional gut-wrenching story that is way too common in America. I applaud the soldiers who make it to normalcy after their military service in places that become a blip on the news and media outlets. In this novel, I cried for their losses, celebrated their happiness, and valued every step of their journey. The Cody and Brandi Musket story, No Pit So Deep, should be read by every American who resides under the freedom our military provides every hour of the day and night. Why? Read the following. This is an All-American story; baseball, military heroes’, romance, and the overcoming of demons from our past, that want to dispute the love of an all-knowing God who watches over us. You’ll see the friction of the evil vs good opposing forces in this novel, and the battle endured by many to become of right mind after their military engagement. Many military veterans face this in their waking hours and nightmares at night. Countless lives have been lost because of PTSD and seeing no way out from the abyss. This is a gut-wrenching story of courage under constant never-ceasing fire. The tension in dramatic scenes is emotionally intense with just the right amount of pressure to clarify the action within the story and move it along. Yes, romance lovers, there’s an overriding story of love against the odds as a foundation. When I finished the last word on the final page, I knew I had to read the next novel in the series to know how Cody and Brandi fared in the next novel. I promise you will too. This is one of the best novels I’ve read in this genre. I clearly understand it winning outstanding book accumulates and hope to see it on the wide-screen. James Nathaniel Miller, II – Fiction containing real events, No Pit So Deep (The Cody Musket Story Book 1) by James Nathaniel Miller II, is a must-read for everyone. Highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.

    Small Hearts by Bryan W. Dull takes us on a skillfully written journey that’ll give you chills, and make you cry, but you’ll want to continue reading to the end. A surprising, amazing must-read story for paranormal, suspense and horror enthusiasts. Emily Sinclair, a former educator now living as a recluse, is in a fitful state. She had no other choice but to leave the school after her third-grade students were shot at Marie-Glen Elementary. The anxiety of leaving and facing the people of the town inhabited her thoughts day and night. The nightmares torture her until her brain feels warped and unnatural unlikely to return to normal. Too tired to fight her way out, she gives into the darkness and sinks into the epitome of hell. As her body is submerged into the dreamscape, she hears wailing, then the sound of small voices, and hearts she recognized. She feels the little hands pushing her up and out of the murky confines she’d sunk into. She pleads with them to stop, but their answer was no, she must go on. Standing she realized the landscape and her body had returned to normal. Yet, there was something out there tempting to obstruct the light. Who or what was blocking her way now? You’ll lose yourself in the story hoping the now ghostly children from the school’s massacre will find peace and leave Emily alone. She needs to grieve and come to terms with the deaths of the children, and the loss of her reputation, and her fiancé. The twists and turns in Small Hearts are unexpected and make a meaningful contribution to the overall story. Yes, this is, primarily, a horror novel, with graphic storytelling; however, if readers will give this book a read, you, like me, will want to see this become a number one bestseller. Why? Someone needed to tell this story, and the author does an amazing job with sensitivity to this societal horror. The author, Bryan W. Dull, boldly takes a present nightmare, albeit horror for society, and creates a story with unforgettable fictional characters. His provocative story based on true events sends a strong message about crime in our country and at the same time offers us hope for the future. Brilliantly written and a must-read adult horror fiction. Small Hearts by Bryan W. Dull is highly recommended by Artisan Book Reviews.
