The Secret Star by K.C. Finn

It was just another day for 35-year-old-turning-36-tomorrow Jeffrey Mercier, when he woke up on his flat in London in 1969. He went on with his usual routine, going to work for his boring job at Harlan and Locke. It did seem to be an ordinary day, until a young woman told him that he's gonna die in ten minutes if he won't go out of the building. Of course he didn't believe her, yet he found himself outside the building ten minutes later, the building blown up.

He was saved again from a stampede by the same young woman whom he met ten minutes ago, introducing herself as Marie-Elizabeth Giraud. Marie was tasked to save Jeff from death and take him to the Time Agency, where he's going to be inducted as a time agent.

Later that day, Jeffrey Mercier's life as Mister Mercy begins.

After reading K.C. Finn's The Book of Shade, I wanted to check out her other works and decided to read The Secret Star. I'm glad I did, because I loved this book as much as I loved The Book of Shade.

I loved her writing - eloquent and wonderful as usual. This isn't even a historical fiction, but I loved the parts where we go back in time and get to know more about Marie and Jeff's past. The concept of time agents was really interesting.

The characters were just awesome. Once again the author was able to give her readers a wonderful cast of characters. The romances in the book were so good and I found myself rooting for the pairs of lovers.

The surprises and plot twists that the author has in store for her readers were enough to keep me on my toes the whole time. If you're a fan of time-travelling stories, adventure and romance - this one is definitely a good read!

Review Post: Fool Me Once by Catherine Bybee

Rating/Review: ☕☕☕☕ 1/2 (4.5 cups, this romantic suspense will give new meaning to The First Wives Club)
You never know what you really would be getting when reading a Catherine Bybee book.  On the outside, each book can definitely hold its own as a great contemporary romance novel.  Read a little bit further, you get well-defined, multilayered characters and a romantic suspense in the making.

RATING/REVIEW: ☕☕☕☕ (4 cups of soothing, slow burn romance!)
Bohemian is a modern day love story about two very different people whose common love for the written word brings them together and in the end may drive them apart.  Lucia and Calvin never would have met in the same place except for the presence of The Mad Ones, an old fashioned bookstore found in the beautiful area of Big Sur.  Lucia is a supermodel, at the age of 26 what use to thrill her has been leaving her bored almost.  When a scheduled shoot in an old fashioned bookstore suddenly fans the flames of her love of reading she starts yearning for more.  Calvin inherited The Mad Ones from his beloved grandfather.  His grandfather's love of reading and his lifestyle has always brought joy to a young Calvin but he never really subscribed to that way of life.  When he meets Lucia he might have been starstruck for a bit.  What does a geeky nerd like him have in common with a beautiful woman like her.  When he finds out they …
