Happy New Year....

Happy New YearI hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year! 


I can’t believe it’s 2018! Do you make new year’s resolutions? I don’t, I find that I stress about the most unusual stuff when I make resolutions, but I do plan out what I would like to accomplish in the new year.

This year, I would like to publish three books, instead of my normal two. I’m a slow writer, but I have hope!

I would also like to start exercising more. I wouldn’t be opposed to losing a pound or two. :-D 

Oh, and since it’s -18 degrees right now, I’m REALLY looking forward to the spring/summer season. 


How about you? What would you like to see in the new year?

Review: Shades of Memory (The Diamond City Magic Novel)

I’m a huge fan of Diana Pharaoh Francis, so when I saw the next book in The Diamond City Magic series was released, I quickly snatched it up! Who doesn’t love magic and mayhem, right?!

Title: Shades of Memory (The Diamond City Magic Novel) : Book 4

Author: Diana Pharaoh Francis

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Publisher: Bell Bridge Books via NetGalley

Release date: November 2017





Riley’s lost the last damned thing she’s willing to lose. She’s declaring war and prisoners are optional.

After escaping the FBI, Riley and her family have become fugitives, and not just from the law. Every bad guy on the planet wants a piece of Riley. Gregg has been kidnapped. Worse than that, Price’s newly discovered magic is dangerously out of control, and her own is trying to kill her. She has little time to worry about any of that before all hell breaks loose in Diamond City, and she finds herself smack dab in the crossfire.

With the clock ticking down, Riley gathers her friends and family to execute a Hail Mary plan that will pit them against seven of the most dangerous thugs in Diamond City, a serial killer, Riley’s psychopath father, and a mysterious billionaire with plans of his own. If she succeeds, she makes herself an even bigger target. If she fails, everybody she cares about dies.

But the shadows hold danger even Riley will never see coming . . . .



I’m a huge fan of The Diamond City Magic Novels. I love dark urban fantasy books, and this series is one of the best. Diana Pharaoh Francis writing is right on point and highly entertaining. What I enjoy most about these books is the unpredictability of the story line. Riley is snarky, smart and doesn’t take sh*t from anyone, not to mention she has a unique magical talent that can be nearly unstoppable…when it’s working. What makes her a complete package is her vulnerability and her compassion for others. The supporting cast of characters are fantastic, their foibles highly entertaining, the tension between them adding another dimension to the story.

I had a little trouble getting into this book, the first chapter didn’t capture me immediately, but I’m glad I kept reading. The rest of the book well made up for it…until I reached the harsh cliffhanger ending. The story just stopped in the middle of the action—I wasn’t ready for the book to be over yet! Despite the rocky beginning and abrupt ending, I enjoyed getting to know Riley, Price and their group of friends again in their latest adventure. I can’t wait for the next book. These novels are a part of a series and cannot be read as a stand alone.
