Love Thy Neighbor

 About The Book:
CLARK HAYDEN is a graduate student trying to help his mother navigate through the loss of his father while she continues to live in their house near Washington DC. With his mother’s diminishing mental capacity becoming the norm, Clark expects a certain amount of craziness as he heads home for the holidays. What he couldn’t possibly anticipate, though, is that he would find himself catapulted into the middle of a terrorist operation. As the holiday festivities reach a crescendo, a terrorist cell – which happens to be across the street – is activated. Suddenly Clark is discovering things he never knew about deadly chemicals, secret government operations, suspiciously missing neigh- bors, and the intentions of a gorgeous IRS auditor. Clark’s quiet suburban neighborhood is about to become one of the most deadly places on the planet, and it’s up to Clark to prevent the loss of hundreds of thousands of innocent lives in the nation’s capital.

 My Review:
This was a very well written book! The author did an amazing job of keeping all the characters in order and had facts and fiction throughout the book that where beyond amazing. It was a page turner for me and now one of my favorite books. If you love thrillers you need to check this book out! This is a book that will have you still questioning things well after you are done reading it! I am highly looking forward to more work from Mark Gilleo and will be buying them to add to my collections of books.

Zero to Four Kids

 About The Book:
From Zero to Four Kids in Thirty Seconds is a humorous yet compelling story of a woman who fell hook, line and thousands of dollars in sinkers for a guy with four kids and enough fishing tackle to sink a small boat.
It has 70 tips that are helpful for stepmothers and future stepmothers, and it’s a fun read for any woman who bit off more than she bargained for and gained even more in the end.

 My Review:
When I got the chance to review this book for a book tour I jumped on it just based on the title. I have always wonder how it works becoming a step parent when you yourself had no kids. 
I very much enjoyed this book and the humor that Amy put throughout the book. Her writing is so easy to connect with and so easy to relate to. 
Even though I am not a step mom to other kids I loved the tips throughout the book for them. It helped me relate to my own step mother in ways that I had never considered before. I fell in love with this book and I highly recommend it to anyone, whether you are a step mom or not. I give this book

Explorer X: Beta

Barely escaping their captors, Aadi and Eirena are determined to save their dying friend. After their final confrontation with the species that tortured them, they’ve changed-unfortunately, not for the better. The changes caused by a terrible experiment force Aadi to accept the possibility that he may never be fit to go home, and that holding onto his sanity, or leading his friends to safety will end in failure and may rip his friendship with Eirena apart, forever. 

My Review:
 This book was amazing! I know I am an adult and it is geared towards teenagers, but I just found it to be an easy read. I was a little lost since I have not read the first book in the series yet but I know I am going to be getting it and the others that follow as well as other books from L.M. Preston. If you have a tween or teen in your house that loves sci-fi then you really need to get them this book! It's available on Amazing for around $11 for paperback.
