On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Mystic Invisible
By Ryder Hunte Clancy
Young Adult Fantasy
Paperback & ebook, 267 Pages
March 17, 2021 by Winter Goose Publishing

Scotland. Where fantasy, mystery, and folklore abound. A place of untold stories and forgotten paths.

A place where legends run awry.

Fifteen-year-old Monte moves to the mystically jeopardized Highlands of Scotland and discovers that life as a Celtic wizard is anything but easy. Whisperings of abnormal enchantments and vicious cat siths grip the small town he now calls home. Fear is at the helm and the instigator is unknown. An indefinite moratorium on magic is enforced. In a race against darkness, Monte and his friends must choose who to trust before time runs out, even if it means breaking some rules and facing danger head on.

My thoughts:  From the shores of Salem Massachusetts to the rugged Scottish Highlands "Mystic Invisible" is an adventure that is fun to read.

Anyone who is a fan of magical beings that are fighting against evil forces will love this book. It is set as a Middle Grade to YA story that I found intriguing with a lot to offer.

Monte and his family move to Scotland so his parents can investigate new Sith Panthers who are terrorizing the mountains and countryside. Monte is quickly pulled into the happenings because he possesses magical abilities that make him a target. He and his unlikely group of friends work together to put an end to the situation.

I really hope that this is a series because I want to read more! The characters and plot caught my attention and I enjoyed the book. I would say that this book is appropriate for middle grade on up.

Cover Reveal ~ "A Royal Spy" by Heather Frost

 It's cover reveal day for Royal Spy by Heather Frost.  I had the opportunity to read the story before this one and loved it.  Here is a LINK to my review.  It is also available on Kindle Unlimited. Snag a copy and read it before this releases!

A DECOY recruited to be a spy.
A PRINCE compelled to become an assassin.
A SERJAH pressured by an unwanted crown.
A WORLD covered in shadows.

Mere months ago, Clare was just a kitchen maid. Now, she is a decoy for Princess Serene and a novice spy, caught in the royal family's web of secrets. While journeying to Mortise to finalize the princess’s betrothal to Serjah Desfan, Clare lives for the stolen moments she has with Bennick, the bodyguard who is quickly claiming her heart. But when a notorious assassin is hired to kill her, Clare’s life and the alliance hang in the balance.

In Ryden, Grayson prepares to leave for Mortise with his brother, Liam. Their orders are to ignite a war between their enemies, and Grayson has been tasked with assassinating Princess Serene. It may cost his soul, but he is ready to comply, as long as he gets something in return: freedom for Mia, the girl he loves. But the more time he spends with his brother, the more he begins to wonder if Liam is what Grayson wishes he had the courage to be . . . a traitor.

Desfan feels trapped. By his disapproving council, his impending marriage to a stranger, and the imminent arrival of enemy princes who may not want the peace they profess. When a dangerous drug threatens his people, Desfan jumps at the chance to rely on his swords instead of politics. But his investigation uncovers more than he bargained for--a plot that may destroy Mortise from within.

Eyrinthia hovers on the edge of war. Spies. Rebels. Traitors. All must choose a side.

In Harms Way by Traci Hunter Abramson #blogtour #excerpt #giveaway #suspense


In Harm's Way (Guardian, #5)In Harm's Way by Traci Hunter Abramson
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Source:  Received to Review
Gener: Romantic Suspense

Book Description:  For years, Troy has lived in the shadows as a Guardian. As part of this secret government taskforce, he has agreed to oversee the team’s base of operations on a remote private island in Maine, replacing fellow agent Ace and his wife, Kristi, for a year. When Troy steps in to hold down the fort, however, he does not anticipate company. So when Kristi’s sister, Jocelyn, appears on the island looking for a getaway, Troy is unnerved by her presence—hiding his top-secret work from the beautiful visitor is a recipe for disaster.

It’s been years since Jocelyn has been able to relax, and the family island is the clear antidote to the chaos of the business world. Expecting solitude, she is taken off guard by the presence of the handsome house sitter living in her sister’s home. Though she and Troy fall into an easy friendship, beneath his calm demeanor, he is an enigma. It’s clear the man who is quickly stealing her heart has a secret, but the truth is beyond Jocelyn’s widest imaginings: Troy is involved in stopping a political coup, and their relationship threatens to place Jocelyn squarely in the crosshairs of a deadly assassin.

My thoughts: Traci Hunter Abramson is a queen of romantic suspense. I have yet to find one of her books that don't suck me right into the storyline. Obviously, this book was no exception.

This book is part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone. It may take a minute or two to comprehend the "ghosts" and what they do. I think that all of the books should be read, whether or not in order.  (It does help to know who the couples are and you might get a spoiler or two by not reading them in order.)

Ty (Troy or Ghost) is living on a remote Island in Main when an unexpected house guest drops by. In spite of his best efforts, she doesn't leave.

Jocelyn needs a getaway to clear her head. Visiting her family's Island seems like the perfect escape. It would be if there wasn't a handsome recluse living in her family home.

You can see where this is going. A budding relationship based off of secrets! In many ways, there is humor as they dance around each other fighting a growing relationship. Ty's job as a ghost brings danger to the island, making for some pretty tricky and terrifying moments.

You don't want to miss this installment of the series. It will keep you up at night reading and bring out a desire for more stories!

Senator Walter Royce didn’t pay attention to the posted menu outside the busy restaurant in Montmartre as he walked through the entrance. He had one purpose for being here, and it had nothing to do with the food.
“Un,” he told the host, holding up one finger to make up for his complete lack of a French accent. On the surface, his trip to Paris was nothing more than a quick family getaway, but in reality, it was a much-needed excuse.
The host said something in French, and Walter shook his head apologetically. “I’m sorry. I don’t understand. Do you have an English menu?”
The younger man nodded and showed him up a half flight of stairs to the dining area. Walter took his seat at a table in the center of the room, and the host handed him a menu.
“Merci.” Once alone, he glanced around the establishment. Through the windows, he could see the tables filled with patrons lining the sidewalk and waiters breezing in and out of the kitchen. In contrast, the indoor dining area was nearly empty. Four locals chatted in French over the remnants of their lunch, and on the far side of the room, an older couple studied their menus.
Walter glanced furtively at each person. Everywhere he looked, he expected to see someone staring at him, someone noticing why he was really here. He had spent the morning with his wife and daughters at the Eiffel Tower, taking the appropriate photos to make sure everyone would see him as the tourist he claimed to be. He had bowed out of their shopping plans, but he doubted he would be able to sneak away again without raising suspicions.
His stomach jumped with nerves, and he struggled to focus on the menu before him. When the waiter arrived to take his order, Walter indicated his choice by pointing.
Out of the corner of his eye, he saw the party of four stand up to leave at the
same time the host approached to seat another guest. Anticipation snaked through him. Was that him? The infamous Gavrie Morozov? A well-known Russian opera- tive, the man was a chameleon. He also had the skills needed to solve Walter’s problems and put him back on track to his destiny.
A moment after the host left, a heavily accented voice carried to him. “Why am I here?”
Walter started to turn around to see the man now seated behind him. “Don’t look at me,” the man commanded. “Just answer the question.”
Walter forced his gaze to stop at the window. Trying to focus on two women seated outside, he willed his heartbeat to slow. “I need help.”
“What kind of help?”
“My former bank notified me that someone was looking into my old account information,” Walter said. “Someone knows I’m working with your people.”
“Who knows?”
“I’m not sure, but I think it’s the guardians.” Walter lowered his voice further. “And I think I know who’s helping them.”
“It sounds like you need someone eliminated.”
Walter’s stomach curled. He had killed a man himself only a few weeks before. The nightmares from that moment still haunted him, and now here he was, negotiating to take another life. When his alliance with the Russians started more than a decade ago, he never anticipated he would be in this position now.
Silence stretched for several seconds before Walter said, “I don’t know if there’s another choice.”
“My associates need something in return.” “What?”
“Access to the detailed budget.”
Walter sucked in a deep breath. The requests from the Russians in the past had been more subtle, but complete access? If they knew where the money was going, they would know everything, including military plans and intelligence objectives. Walter was supposed to be the key to balancing the volatile relationship between the two superpowers, not the gofer giving one a significant leg up on the other. What would the Russians do if he refused? Would they cut off his funding? Or eliminate him in the most final sense of the word?
“Even if I give you access, what good would that do?” Walter asked. “I can’t make changes significant enough to make a difference.”
“You’re on the Senate Intelligence Committee. You have access to information we need.”
The noose around his neck tightened. He didn’t have any other option. “I’ll make it happen.”"
“Good,” the man said, his accent thickening. “While you’re at it, I suggest you propose to trim expenditures in a few places, especially anything that might be providing funding to the guardians.”
“I tried that before.”
“Try again.” The voice was low but firm. “Now, where do I find this problem of yours?”
“In Washington, DC,” Walter said. “You’ll find him on Capitol Hill.” Walter pulled a folded envelope from his back pocket and dropped it to the floor. He looked down as though noticing its presence for the first time, then cleared his voice. “I think you dropped something.”
The other man leaned down and picked it up. “So it seems.”"

Treacherous Legacy by Kathi Oram Peterson #blogtour #excerpt #giveaway #suspense


Treacherous LegacyTreacherous Legacy by Kathi Oram Peterson
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Source:  Received to Review
Genre: Action/Suspense

Book Description:  Anna Braverman comes from a long line of intelligence agents, but her late father insisted she follow a different path and become an accountant. When an urgent summons arrives from her only living relative, Uncle Ezra, Anna drops everything to meet him in a café on the outskirts of Reykjavík, Iceland. Uncle Ezra sweeps her into a decades-old mystery as he explains that her great-grandfather, a famous Jewish artist, was accused of being a Nazi sympathizer. He wants Anna to help him disprove the lie and expose the truth. But they can trust no one. Any skepticism Anna may have harbored disappears when her uncle is shot. Barely alive, he utters one final word: “Run.”

Though he met Ezra only briefly, journalist Kristofer Tómasson knows the information the old man passed on to his niece is likely the reason he was murdered. Now his niece’s life is also in peril. Despite the danger, Kristofer approaches Anna with an offer to help in exchange for an exclusive story. United by a common goal, as well as an undeniable spark of attraction, Anna and Kristofer race to uncover the mysteries of the past—that is, if they survive.

My thoughts: The story begins during World War II. A young Jewish family makes an attempt to flee Denmark to escape the Nazis.

Fast forward to the present day. The grandchildren and great-grandaughter are trying to uncover the mystery of the disappearance of their ancestors. There are those who wish to keep the secrets buried.

This begins as a story filled with suspense. I was kept invested emotionally and intellectually. I found it fascinating. There were tidbits of history that were new to me. I knew about the Jewish in Germany and a few of the surrounding countries. It never occurred to me that it Denmark was one of them. I am grateful that Kathi Oram Peterson did her research and made me a better-informed reader in the process.

Suspense, family secrets, long-lost relatives, political intrigue, romance, and espionage are all neatly bundled in one book. It didn't take me long to fly through the pages, mainly because I didn't want to put it down.

Read an Excerpt:


September 29, 1943
Copenhagen, Denmark
Sweat beaded Joseph Braverman’s forehead. He sat at his desk, where the satchel containing the wireless telegraph machine rested, earphones on his head as he listened for confirmation from the Danish Resistance that they had received his message. He pulled his Waltham watch from his pocket and held it to the dim lightbulb of the desk lamp: 11:30 p.m. A reply shouldn’t take this long. He glanced at his wife.
Hadassah’s anxious brown eyes watched his every move as she stood by their apartment door with her hands grasping each of their ten-year-old twin boys’ hands. A small suitcase crammed with precious photos and clean undergarments for the family rested by her feet. Joseph hoped the skipper of the small skiff wouldn’t mind. The man had said Joseph’s family could hide in the hull but no luggage. Surely, they could make room for one small suitcase.
Benjamin and Bernard’s identical faces were still pale with shock. The entire family had been stunned during their worship at the synagogue only a few hours ago. They had gone to stand before God on Rosh Hashanah, the Day of Judgment, but their beloved Rabbi Melchior had interrupted services and said, “We have news that this coming Friday night, the night between the first and second of October, the Gestapo will arrest every Jew in Denmark. They have our names and addresses. We must leave now.” And then the rabbi had sent the congregation home.
For a small fortune, Joseph had procured a boat on their way to their apartment, but he’d also seen something disturbing at the harbor. Something he shouldn’t have. Something that, if the Resistance knew, could save thousands of lives. He had to report it. While Hadassah had gathered their things, he’d sent the message. What was keeping Command from acknowledging that they’d received it? Joseph didn’t have time for this. Nor did his family. It wouldn’t take the Germans long to triangulate a transmission and know exactly where it had come from. There had been no time to go into the woods, away from their apartment, like he usually did.
He pulled the right earphone away from his head. “Hadassah, you and the boys go on without me. I’ll catch up.” “No!” She stood her ground. “We’ll never find each other again. We’re staying together.” The twins said nothing, just stared at him with haunted eyes. They knew too well the danger around them. Though the Germans had invaded their homeland three years ago, things had grown worse during the last year. His sons had had to watch as German soldiers had hauled away the baker from the corner pastry shop because they’d assumed he was a spy. The boys had witnessed the soldiers beating him, seen the blood covering his face. The twins knew very well that their father was part of the Danish Resistance. The same thing could happen to him. From that day on, they’d grown more solemn.
Joseph had to make Hadassah see reason. “The boat is waiting. I’ll catch up. I promise. Go!” With great reluctance, his beloved picked up the suitcase, opened the door, and gave Joseph a soulful look that said she loved him before ushering the boys out. Joseph prayed with all his heart that they’d be safe.
Cursing under his breath, he jerked the earphones off his head. He wondered if the rumored spy within the Resistance had intercepted his message. The danger Joseph had put his family in could be for naught. He’d find some other way to get word to Command. His gaze shot around the room, searching. It would be too dangerous to carry his coded notes on his person. Besides, he had it memorized. He couldn’t risk burning it and drawing attention. He had to hide it. If he were stopped from getting word to the Resistance, maybe someone would find the message. His eyes locked on The Portrait of Bethsedia that he’d painted years ago. It was worth a fortune. The Nazis might destroy his home, but even they appreciated true art. Joseph’s work was world-renowned. He rushed over and took the painting off the wall. Footsteps thundered up the stairs.
Nazi jack boots. Many of them.
Joseph folded the message to the smallest square, then turned the painting over and slid the paper between the underside wood frame and the stretched canvas that was stapled to it. Barely noticeable. With shaking hands, he hefted the painting onto the wall. “Tur auf!” Thuds shook the door.
The doorknob rattled. Nazis burst in, guns at the ready. They shoved Hadassah and the twins to the floor at Joseph’s feet. Brokenhearted, he gathered his family to him, holding them tight. Would they ever forgive him? And would the message he’d risked everything for ever be found?

Manor for Sale, Baron Included by Esther Hatch


Manor for Sale, Baron Included
by Esther Hatch
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source:  Received to Review
Genre:  Historical Romance

Book Description:  She has everything Lord Farnsworth wants, including his manor.

Lord Farnsworth would rather rot in debtor’s prison than sell the one place that feels like home to him—his mother’s manor. That is, until he meets the woman who wants to buy it. Sally Duncan is beautiful, intelligent, and as rich as a baron—a rich baron, not a cash-strapped one like Lord Farnsworth. She’s the solution to every one of his financial problems and is bewitching to boot. All he needs to do is sell her his beloved manor and then charm her to the altar, and the manor will be his again. Simple, right?

But nothing is simple when Sally starts tearing apart his ancestral home and renovating it in a way no one would consider tasteful. She is wreaking havoc on everything, but he cannot give up on owning his mother’s estate again, nor can he imagine anyone but Sally as his wife.

And so he sticks with his plan.

What a horrible mistake.

My thoughts: This book! It is a series of miscommunication and awkward moments. Esther Hatch has written this story with whit and clever imagination. I did not want to put it down, I wanted to see what John or Sally had up their sleeve next.

If you are looking for a book that is entertaining with fantastic banter, this is one you want to pick up!

The Counselor by Curtis Taylor

The Counselor by Curtis Taylor

Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Genre: Suspense/Mystery

Source:  Received to Review

 Book Description: Late one night Travis Call is awakened by a knock at the door. After months of suspense, the police have arrived with the news he dreaded: His wife, an up-and-coming actress, is dead.

And they suspect him of her murder.

As a young financial counselor, Travis has made millions for his clients, but a recent diagnosis of Lyme Disease has compromised his ability to think, to remember, to make good decisions. And now he may be in over his head with a new and suddenly rocky investment.

Travis is also a counselor in the bishopric of his ward at church. And now that he is suspected in his wife’s murder, he will almost certainly be released—or will he? Maybe the bishop knows more than the police do.

It’s a certainty that somebody close to him does.

With almost too many suspects to count, Travis has to find the real killer—before the real killer grows even bolder and silences him.

My thoughts:   Curtis Taylor is a "new to me" author.  I think that I have been missing out. I'm going to have to read a few more of his books.

Travis is an honorable man who is placed in a difficult situation.  His wife has been missing for nine months and her body has just been found.  Everyone is suspect, including Travis and a young missionary.

I was enthralled from the moment I started reading.  This is a book that captured my attention from the first page.  Curtis is on the hunt for the killer.  I was intrigued by his process and how the information came to him to help him find the person who murdered his wife.

The book is a little longer than I thought it would be, but it is well worth the time to read.  There are religious aspects to the story.  Travis is a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  His religion is mentioned as part of his character, but not a major aspect of the mystery.

A Captain For Caroline Gray by Julie Wright #blogtour #regencyromance


A Captain for Caroline GrayA Captain for Caroline Gray by Julie Wright
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source:  Received to Review
Genre: Historical Fiction

Book Description: Caroline Gray would rather be daring and intelligent than demure and insipid, which is why she is still unmatched after her third season in London. Her family’s threadbare finances leave Caroline with only one choice to secure her future: sail with the Fishing Fleet to India, where the son of a family friend is willing to consider an engagement to her.

Captain Thomas Scott loves the open sea as much as he despises the three-month, twice-yearly trip his ship makes as he ferries young English girls across the ocean. He can’t imagine what family would allow an innocent young woman to be matched up with the Englishmen of questionable reputation who work and live in India.

But when Miss Gray boards the HMS Persistence, all of Captain Scott’s plans are upended. Miss Gray’s fiery spirit can’t be contained, and he is shocked and secretly delighted at her boldness—and her beauty. But the rest of his passengers aren’t so kind.

Caroline finds herself an outcast among her peers, but Captain Scott becomes an unlikely ally. They share the same passions and interests, creating an undeniable attraction. But they both know any relationship between them is impossible. After all, Caroline has obligations to fulfill in India.

Caroline has until the end of the voyage to decide if she is going to marry a man she has never met or be brave enough to love a sea captain who just might break her heart.

My thoughts:  Caroline has been put in a hard situation. Either go to India and try to make a match or be passed from relative to relative. For a woman with strong opinions and an active mind, it is a difficult decision.

I loved Caroline. She has so much compassion and looks out for others. The title leaves the ending open. Caroline has two captains, Captain Barrit or Captain Scott. One she has promised to think about making a match with and the other finds his way into her mind and heart.

The majority of this novel is set on the high seas. I enjoyed Caroline's fascination with the ship and crew. Her artistic talents help her make friends with people who really matter. The people that high society would not look at twice.

This book is a keeper. It is interesting and entertaining. Caroline and Captain Scott are the kind of people that I would love to associate with.
