My review of Brandon Sanderson's second Reckoner's book! Not bad for a second book, makes me want to read the next one! This has to be turned into a movie soon!
For those unfamiliar with the series, it's better known as the Reckoners trilogy. The first book, titled Steelheart, came out September 2013, and Firefight came out January of this year. You can read my review of Steelheart here so you can join in on the epic (pun intended) journey that it is.

The Clover House: a novel
Henriette Lazaridis Powers
Paperback, 432 pages
Published April 2nd 2013 by Ballantine Books (first published January 1st 2013)
ISBN 0345530683 (ISBN13: 9780345530684)
 
Actually, 3 1/2 stars. The Clover House has Callie going through her uncle's things that she inherits and while in Greece, tries to find answers to family secrets. I liked the descriptions of Carnival in Patras, Greece in Callie's story, and I liked reading how WW II effected Greece during Clio's story. I do wish there was more of the past story from Clio's sisters. I did like Henriette Lazaridis's writing. She kept the story moving and it wasn't confusing at all going between the present and the 1940's.
This is not a difficult read, and would make for a good book to bring on vacation, or on a quiet weekend.

My review of Wounded Animals (Whistleblower Book 1) by Jim Heskett.
rating 5 of 5 stars
format Paperback (edit)
review 
After reading Jim Heskett's short story collection, I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands onto this new release. Jim did not disappoint!

Continuing in his easy to read style, the first introduction to the Hero, and subsequently a super intriguing character, I was stuck and greedily read the entire book in one go. 

I was bound to this book, grumbling and growling along with main man, Candle Tucker, in frustration and confusion - going through the various emotions [and even considered having a drink with the guy!] while trying to put his life back together. 

The write-up does not begin to tell you what this book contains by way of entertainment. It is a mystery, a thriller, an emotional rollercoaster with the ever present rooting to have love conquer all! 

I don't consider myself a reader of this genre, but I am positively invigorated by Jim's writing skill and story-telling style. I can't wait to read the rest - and while this book ends on a perceived positive note, it leaves you with enough questions to want to hurry the Author along to the next one!

Thank you Jim, for providing a bit of swagger to my reading - almost Bond style!

Hey there Sir, 
I went ahead and read the synopses of your books - and I would at this stage, respectfully decline reading them. This is a subject matter that carries 'triggers' for me, and best avoided. If I may recommend it, you may be able to find reviewers among your peers in groups such as:
http://dcp.bps.org.uk/dcp/book-reviews/book-reviews_home.cfm
http://www.clinpsy.org.uk/forum/
This may be more suitable.
I wish you the best.

The Winter Family
Clifford Jackman
Hardcover, 352 pages
Published April 14th 2015 by Doubleday
ISBN 0385539487 (ISBN13: 9780385539487)

I definitely liked Clifford Jackman's writing in The Winter Family. The story follows a group of men who eventually go out west after the Civil War. I do feel that Jackman's writing is engrossing, he kept the plot moving, and developed it well. The book is more than just about the Civil War, it's about the characters, what they faced while being in the army during a time of war, and the aftermath of an unstable country after the war. The only part I can say I was not fond of was the "graphic"ness of some scenes, but I was interested in reading about the Civil war when I put in for the book. The graphic scenes in the book are not poorly written, in fact they fit in well with the storyline. I tend not to read books that have a lot of graphic scenes, so this is my issue. This is definitely a good read about the time period, even with the graphic scenes.

***This book was received in a Goodreads Firstreads Giveaway from the publisher, Doubleday.***

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by Grab the Lapels!
"...it is this slow pacing that gives the book its realistic feel; separation, violence, legal issues, and parents’ rights are not easy topics to summarize and stuff in the closet. It’s a long, drawn-out process that affects so many individuals, and Simmons captures that reality in her book.

Overall, How to Knock a Bravebird from Her Perch is novel that is able to capture many characters and render them in a realistic tone that makes it pleasurable to read in addition to the challenging topics readers will face."
