Make You Mine by Macy Beckett

In ninety-nine years none of the Dumont men have ever married and the folks in Cedar Bayou, Louisiana will tell you a voodoo hex was cast upon them by the Mauvais family. Yeah baby! When I read the synopsis to Make You Mine, the first book in the Dumont Bachelors series, by Macy Beckett, I knew I had to read it. Voodoo, southern charm, pastries and forbidden romance made this tale positively delightful. Checkout my Coffee Date review with Make You Mine……

A curse has been haunting the Hemlock witches, and when a stranger appears at their door the trouble begins. Mini review: While aspects were enjoyable, it was predictable and more suited to a MG audience.

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer is the first novel in the Mara Dyer trilogy by Michelle Hodkin. The tale is a mystery and a romance with a paranormal twist. It has an unreliable narrator and was one heck of a crazy ride. Mini review: Twisted, dark, romantic, frustrating, and suspenseful. Hodkin delivered a pull your hair-out read that left me scratching my head and screaming for more.

The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon

I was immediately drawn to the synopsis for The Winter People by Jennifer McMahon. It shares a tale about a mother and daughter bond, loss, grief and wishes that should never be granted. A farm shrouded with a tragic history, a superstitious rural community, and a mother with secrets all added to this atmospheric tale. Mini review: A spine-tingling, hair raising thriller. McMahon held me captive and made me shiver.
