BETH'S REVIEW

Are you in need of a cozy read this fall? This is the book for you! Things You Save In A Fire is a great story about Cassie Hanwell. A fierce firefighter who moves to Connecticut to be closer to her mother "for a year at most". While Cassie is beloved in her fire house in TX, not so much when she moves to New England. What follows is a year of learning to love again, learning more about herself than she ever knew, and a lot about forgiveness and friendship. This story leaves you contentedly reflecting what is truly meaningful.

DEBBIE'S REVIEW

For anyone who enjoys "Beauty and the Beast" -you'll love The Beast's Heart. This is a return to the original fairy tale not the Disney version. Told from the perspective of the Beast this story takes you on a journey that not many people dwell on; how Beast actually became the beast and how Beauty changed his life. Wonderfully well done and will make you feel as if you are entering a truly magical fairy tale. Shades of Jane Austen and the Bronte sisters mix with original, classic fairy tales to create something both highly original and completely classic at the same time.

PAULA'S REVIEW

This is my favorite book of the summer. It starts off quick and keeps you guessing until the end. At points in this book you don't know who to believe, who to feel sorry for or who is the villian. A must read! 5 stars.

DANI'S REVIEW

Enchanting & imaginative book about a girl's journey to find herself. Calls to mind favorite childhood fantasies - Chronicles of Narnia, Wizard of Oz, but geared to an adult or young adult audience. Not your typical fantasy novel - elements of romance, coming of age, mystery. Beautifully written, use of magical doors as metaphors for "the path not taken". Strong, relatable heroine with an independent , authentic voice.
