Paranormalcy

16 year old Evie works for the International Paranormal Containment Agency, she's just a normal teenage girl. Her parent's abandoned her when she was just 3 years old and then she spent a few years in the foster care system. When she was 8, she was brought to the Agency and she's been under the director, Raquel's care ever since. Evie has a special power she can see through glamours of all kinds of paranormals, faeries, vampires, werewolves, you name it. Because of this she's kind of important to the Agency and she gets the royal treatment. One night after she's busted a vampire, she comes home to get some rest and then there's an alarm. The alarm means that she's supposed to stay where she's at, which happens to be in her room, but she gets curious and goes to investigate. She creeps to Raquel's office and what she finds seems crazy, what appears to be Raquel is going through some files, the person pretending to be Raquel has no idea that Evie can see through glamours, so they talk to her just as if they were Raquel, but Evie's not fooled. Evie can see there's something under there, but she can't tell just what the person is. The person almost appears to be the invisible outline of a person, but Evie doesn't really have the time to worry about what the person is, because pretty soon she will be given an answer to a question that will rock her whole world. This was an awesome book! I really enjoyed it, it's just what a young adult novel should be. It was basically clean, very little swearing (I loved how this was handled with the heroin saying "bleep" whenever she wanted to swear, you'll have to read it to know why), full of action, and of course all the vampires and mythical creatures!

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
