Book Description: Nikki Turner has it all: she is an honor student, has a popular boyfriend and is a star dancer. However; never is there a time that a smile crosses her face. With a constant frown and a sharp tongue, she doesn’t let anyone get a rise out of her, especially her teacher Cassie McGregor. When it is revealed that Nikki is homeless and in the foster care system, Cassie, who is a certified foster mother, is chosen to be her temporary guardian, an agreement they both object from the start. As their animosity begins to deplete, Nikki and Cassie realize that what they’ve always wanted just might bring them closer.

BRT Review Title:  Heart warming but needs character development
BRT Review: I was pleasantly surprised to find that this new author read was a good one. I found the story of Nikki the sassy but intelligent high school student who is later discovered to be homeless to be well written. The teen dialogue was believable and although some occurrences were a little far-fetched, Jackson did a good job of bringing Nikki and Cassie’s world together in a believable and enjoyable way. There are a few intended tear jerker moments but a little more character development in Cassie’s background in addition to Nikki’s would have dredged up more feeling from me in trying situations. All things considered, this was a good read and I’m sure there will be more good reads to come from this young author. Good review talk! But you be the judge.

Book Description: The President of The United States is dead. There is no Vice President to take his place. As the nation slips into a constitutional crisis, a small group of disenfranchised neo-patriots  conspire to violently seize power. They have the will. They already have someone on the inside.  And they have the explosives.  Standing in their way is a woman who listens to conversations not meant for her to hear. She reads mail not intended for her to see.   She knows their intention. But can she stop them in time?SEDITION is a smart, fast-paced, modern day political novel woven in reality and based on the 1820 British plot, The Cato Street Conspiracy. It navigates the thin line between good versus evil and patriot versus traitor, proving there’s always a reason behind treason.

BRT Review Title:  Interesting with intrigue but not entirely believable
BRT Review: I read this book in paperback and for a first time author, I was very impressed with Tom Abrahams. If you’re a conspiracy theorist or love political mystery, this may be a book you’d enjoy as you’re taken on a journey of espionage, secrecy and code cracking to find out who will take over the presidency and who ultimately should, after the President and Vice President of the United States die in office. Unfortunately, there were several moments where the detailed descriptions were overbearing, the plausibility of certain occurrences and the believability of the ensemble in the main conspiracy group Datura waned. In general however; the writing was vivid and Abrahams is clearly a talented story-teller who could likely debate politics with anyone for eons. Good review talk! But you be the judge.

Book Description: A   Patriot’s Betrayal is a thriller set in modern times that follows a path laid   out centuries ago, right here in America. The last thing Parker Chase   expected to find after burying his murdered uncle was a cryptic letter from   the dead man. Parker realizes that his death was far more than a robbery gone   bad, and soon finds himself pursued by the very men who killed his uncle.   Joined by his brilliant ex-girlfriend, Parker fights to stay one step ahead   of a shadowy organization hell-bent on silencing him forever. Desperate to   discover why his uncle died, Parker realizes that he had uncovered   information about a centuries old mystery involving America’s Founding   Fathers. Soon both the CIA and police join the death-dealing group of   murderers in the chase to capture Parker, who must run for his life while   unraveling the greatest conspiracy in American history.
BRT Rating:  fivewinks
BRT Review Title:  A conspiracy theory and mystery lovers playground!
BRT Review: Andrew Clawson does an excellent job of taking the reader on a danger filled chase along with the main character Parker Chase to find the pieces of his uncles secrets and murder puzzle. As luck would have it, Parker has ties with a CIA agent and enlists the help of his ex-girlfriend who he clearly still has sparks with to evade becoming one of the corpses they avoid along the way. I enjoyed the chase scenes and I appreciated the various POV’s that allows the reader a window into both the villains and the victims motives and actions. Clawson uses all the expected near death escapes and mysterious behavioral clues that should be included in a thriller. Great review talk! But you be the judge.
