Butterfly On The Storm (Book 1 of The Heartland Trilogy) by Walter Lucius Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I've just finished another great book! 
Butterfly On The Storm tells the story of several characters who take part in trying to solve a crime mystery. There are literally so many characters within this story; some good, some evil, that I can't write information on all of them but most of them held their own story throughout, I thought. Sometimes we get characters who aren't really necessary to the overall plot but all of the characters personalities played into this story well. 
Butterfly In The Storm really suits anyone 18+ that wants a thrill while reading, I think. I say it's for 18+ because there are some quite  horrific things that happen. I think that reading something that's scary is different to watching something that's scary. If you're watching it, you can't avoid it but if you're reading it, you can make it as scary as you want to. There's threatening behaviour as well as murders in Butterfly In The Storm, along w…

Where The Sweet Bird Sings by Ella Joy Olsen Review

Hi ForeverBookers, Happy Easter!!! 
I've just finished Where The Sweet Bird Sings by Ella Joy Olsen. This was an okay book. I didn't hate it but I didn't love it. In this contemporary, we follow Emma, in first person narrative as she tries to unlock her families' past secrets and find out about who she is. 
Where The Sweet Bird Sings releases on 29th August 2017. 
Spoilers below...
Emma has just lost her grandfather. While at his funeral, she recounts loosing her son, Joey to a disease, when he was only a baby. She wants to find out where this disease started in her family and if it's her fault that he died, as she wants to try again for another healthy baby with her husband. What's to say they're second child wouldn't be affected the same way as Joey was? Emma and her husband need to work out the risk factor. Emma's brother and his wife also want to try for a baby. However, if he has the same DNA as Emma, will his child be affected too? Both he an…

Sea (Huntress Book 1) by Sarah Driver Review

Hi ForeverBookers,

I've just finished book 1 of a great fantasy adventure trilogy.

I requested Sea from NetGalley so thank you to NetGalley for the opportunity to read it!

Sea tells the story of Mouse a 12 year old girl when the story starts who's grown up at sea. She has a little brother, Sparrow too that she cares for. Her grandmother is the captain of the Huntress, their ship at the beginning of the book. Mouse is meant to become captain after her grandmother but someone impedes that happening. Mouse has friends on the Huntress that we don't really see in this book. They might come into the story more in future books.

Sea is marketed as a aged 9+ book. I don't think it should be read until age 13 really as there is lots of violence, blood and threatening behaviour. The protagonist is 13 for the majority of this book. I don't think a younger reader should read it.

Sea is written in first person perspective from the protagonist, Mouse's point of view. I reall…

Paris For One And Other Stories by Jojo Moyes Review

Hi, ForeverBookers, 

I've just finished reading Paris For One And Other Stories by Jojo Moyes and it was a cute little compendium of stories about finding and keeping love.
I got this arc from NetGalley so thanks to them and the publisher for giving me the chance to read it. This is available to purchase now...

If you want to skip spoilers for the invidual stories then go to the line and read below that.

Paris For One
This is the main story of this collection and is a simple story about finding love when everything else is set against you. 
4 Stars!
Nell, the main character is meant to be going away to Paris for a weekend with her boyfriend, Pete. When she gets a text from Pete saying that he's not coming she's not sure what to think. She goes anyway, though to throw hell to the wind. 
When she gets to Paris, she's unsure of where to go. She has the address of the hotel she booked but nothing else. At the Hotel she speaks to the receptionist who tells her the hotel doub…
