Review: A Dangerous Act of Kindness

A Dangerous Act of Kindness A Dangerous Act of Kindness by L.P. Fergusson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I started this book because it was part of the #biglibraryread with Overdrive and it was a WWII historical fiction. I didn't really have any expectations going into the book because I did not read the synopsis, I just jumped in. Well, I lost a lot of sleep over this one because I could not stop until it was finished. The first part is a full love story, love between a German pilot and the British woman who helped him after he crash landed. The second part of the book was how to live after such a dramatic, secret love affair. I won't tell you too much because I hate when people spoil books for me, but if you like WWII historical fiction and if you like to see someone do the right thing even if your country thinks it is wrong...then I think you will like this too.

The ending is exactly what I wanted.

Review: The Night Tiger

The Night Tiger The Night Tiger by Yangsze Choo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was quiet a departure from my usual genre of books, but it was a pleasant diversion. I was not sure what I would think about it at first because it was so different, but every review i read said it was great so I started it. I got sucked into the characters fairly quickly. I frankly wanted to adopt Ren just about as soon as he opened his mouth for the first time. What a sweet, devoted child. I started rooting for him early on in the book.

As for Shin and Ji Lin's story, well it is taking place at the same time of Ren's story, and eventually they will wind up in the same plot line. I am not going to give much away because it is just a lovely journey, but I will tell you there is mystery, murder, love, intrigue, and friendship. Just beautiful.

Review: Rogue One: A Junior Novel

Rogue One: A Junior Novel Rogue One: A Junior Novel by Matt Forbeck
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I do think that this book is just as good as the movie (I liked the movie). The Narrator is animated and does all the voices and even the "beep beeps".

I still am sad that everyone dies.

Review: The Last Year of the War

The Last Year of the War The Last Year of the War by Susan Meissner
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Susan did not disappoint in this book. She gave us a tale that in parts was hard for me to read. I have known for a while that we had camps in America, but it is still hard to read about. Then the way the family left the camp and what they were to experience when they did leave the camp. I won't give you details, but it was very hard.

The book got happier as you find someone who is willing to give so much to be so selfless. Even if they had a motive for doing so, they still saved someone in every way a person can be saved and that was beautiful. I can't tell you what I mean by this statement, you really need to read the book and see what a wonderful act it was and who committed it.

It was a very well written tale that if you let it can give you a little history as to what life was like for a German American or Japanese American living in the USA during WWII.

Review: Granny on Board

Granny on Board Granny on Board by Harper Lin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I always love a good Harper Lin novel and this one is set on one of my favorite things to do....on a cruise ship!! You know going into the book there will be a murder, what you don't know is who will be murdered and how. Ok, the how blew me away but I can tell you nothing because you need to read this for yourself and determine how it all works on your own.

What you need to know going into this is that Octavian and Barbara are adorable together and I love that they took a cruise together. The other thing you need to know is just when you think you have it figured out....you don't!!!

Enjoy!
