4/5 Stars

This is the first in a new series, I really enjoyed it. I was quickly swept up intot he story and wanted to keep reading until I read the last page. I found the characters to be delightful and endearing, people I enjoyed spending time with. They mystery is well plotted and kept me guessing until the final reveal. I’m looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.

I thought this was a very imaginative book by author, Lindsay Jayne Ashford. There is a blend of actual events with fiction that seamlessly blurs the line between what is real and what is made up.

Agatha Christie sets out on a solo adventure on The Orient Express. Agatha goes undercover in hpes of not being recognized as she is just at the end of her divorce proceedings and quite embarrassed by this. Along the way she encounters two women who will help her become a stronger person.

The story started a little slow for me but once it got going, the momentum picked up. I enjoyed reading a fictionalized version of events in Ms. Christie’s life. I thought the author paid attention to detail and gave wonderful descriptions of events and locations. There lines bwtween real and fiction are blurred so the reader can easily believe the events of the book took place. Although not a mystery as I originally thought, I was pleasantly surprised and really enjoyed this book..

This is a wonderful coloring book. I knew I wanted to get it as soon as I saw it was available because I enjoy the previous coloring book released by this illustrator. The pages are filled with magical pages to color . There is a story to go along with illustrations and a few activity pages. I know I will have hours of enjoyment and relaxation coloring in this book.

Review – The Return of Sir Percival: Book 1: Guinevere’s Prayer by S. Alexander O’Keefe

5/5 Stars

I can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed this book. The author has created a tale weaving together early English history with folklore of long ago. The characters are painted with rich, vibrantcy bringing about a believable air that is often missing in other takes featureing the Arthurian players.

The story will quickly draw you in and have you wanting to know what will happen next. The author slowly builds the tension with little skirmishes, or character reveals leading to the conclusion of the story. Speaking of the conclusion, you’re left wanting more, know what will happen next in these characters lives.

I really enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more from this author.

I initially got this coloringn book for neice but liked it so much I kept it for myself. The pages are filled with wonderfully, unique drawings that are fun to color and allow the iimagination to run free. One of the things I like most is the pages are not overly busy, I tend to not enjoy coloring those pages so well.

The coloring book comes with a cover that can also be colored. The pages of the book are of a thick, quality paper. This would make a great gift or a great book for yourself if you enjoy coloring.

What a great book! I really enjoyed this story. One of the things that immediately caught my attention in this book as I read were the characters. They’re intricately crafted, complex characters that are flawed and interesting, people whowant to know more about. This is the first book by this author that I’ve read, and I could sense the development of the characters as I read the story. The author does a great job of giving enough information so a new reader (such as myself) doesn’t feel lost. This information is given in such a way as to blen effortless with the current story without bogging down the flow.
The story is a fast paced, well written book that quickly drew me in. I was kept captivated by the story, not wanting to put it down. I was kept guessing as to who the culprit was until the end. My personal preference is to read books in a series in order, I like to follow along with the characters on their journeys. This book could be easily read as a stand-alone, something I don’t typically say.
This is the first book by this author that I’ve read and it certainly won’t be my last.
