What’s your What If?

That moment you look back on and think, what if I had made a different decision, how would my life have changed.

Troy doesn’t need to wonder.  He’s afflicted by a condition that lets him live out different futures – too many of them. Jaded by all these possibilities, he drifts from day to day never knowing if what he’s living is real life or just a possible one.

When he first meets Cat, it’s not even close to love at first sight. She pepper sprays him and steals his phone. But then he meets her again, and again. Finally, he becomes convinced that this funny, crazy, woman might be just what he needs.

But in his strange world of possibilities nothing is straightforward.

Book Review by Joni Dee

Hooked from the First Forkful to the Last Crumb

Sholem Aleichem is a Jewish author who lived in the 19th century. While he wrote mainly in Yiddish, the dying Central-Eastern-European Jewish language (nowadays spoken only by orthodox communities), you can still find some of his work translated to English and Hebrew. His novels, as well as short stories, were a mirror of the Jewish society of the Shtetls – the old towns that were mostly inhabited by Orthodox Jews. In the Shtetls, each and every one knew their neighbours’ most intimate secrets and affairs, as a substitutional material for our modern-age TV if you’d like. They were fertile grounds for emotional packed stories and tales, and Sholem Aleichem played them in his novels like a gifted fiddler.

Unknowingly, or maybe intentionally, Eva Pasco takes this form of mundane socio-politics, of petty rivalries and small love affairs, and transcribed them to the North American culture and society.

Beauchemins is a placid small town on the north end of Rhode Island. Following massive French-Canadian job seeking immigration during the 19th and early 20th centuries, it is also a French-Canadian enclave, in the old American north. Half the population speaks French, and the other half uses French-Canadian urban phrases, which paints the town with unique fairy-talish colours, amidst its New England entourage.

The story is one of love and friendship; hate and rivalry; camaraderie and competition; all in the simplest aspect of la vie quotidian – our everyday lives.

The story is told by two adversary heroines: Augusta – the town’s ultimate seducer, and Lindsay, who comes to town to establish the local Mill’s museum. The story uses the 1st body, giving each of the frenemies a chance to express their own narrative without an ‘outside’ storyteller. In a sense, Lindsay plays the role of the outsider, digging into the town’s history for her own research and in order to forget about her failed marriage, while at the same time unveiling the town’s closeted skeletons. Augusta very much represents these skeletons: the untamed, never settled-down, town’s beauty, but also the delicate broken-home refugee, who is always on guard, with ice running in her veins, covering secrets of her own which run deeper than her well covered “Port coloured birthmark”

It all drains to a quiche competition, annually held by the town’s luncheonette, in which Augusta and Estelle, best friends, compete.

Let me start by saying: don’t read this novel on an empty stomach. Pasco’s talent for imagery will have you craving for a piece of quiche (I actually asked my wife to make one!). The author’s language is impeccable, she uses the full-scope of the English dictionary with playful phrasing to convey the storyline. Many times, the reader is expected to think and deduct for himself, not being served “the quiche” on a silver platter. Pasco treats her readers as intelligent, and spares us nothing in terms of figurative mind puzzles:
“cocooned inside the insecurity blanket of matrimonial bliss…” “…family would reap the benefits of having a cleaning lady come in once a weak. Still the dirty laundry accumulated…” and “…only I could pack a peck of pickled pluck whenever tears ventured to surface!” are just a small nosh as an example.

A word of warning! With idioms from the full spectrum of American culture, such as “jalopies” and “Miller time” the English playfulness can get rather rich to one’s taste. There was more than one occasion, when I wished Ms. Pasco would get to the point, and more than a few junctures where I had to re-read a paragraph to find the right beau-chemins (pretty roads in French).

If you love romance, if you enjoy having to think as reader and if you are an English-language enthusiast – grab your copy today. I can only reprimand Ms. Pasco for the book’s blurb and cover, both which doesn’t live up to the majestic content. I was hooked from the first forkful to the last crumb.

Romance / Paranormal

Blurb:

If the price of safety is slavery, would you bargain your life?

A Bargain in Silver is book one of Josie Jaffrey’s Solis Invicti paranormal romance series, set in a dystopian, post-apocalyptic London.

A deadly infection threatens to wipe out humanity. The only people who can stem its advance are the Silver, a vampiric race who offer a simple exchange: protection in return for blood and subservience. It’s not a deal that Emmy’s willing to make, but as her world burns around her she finds herself in the arms of the enemy and the line between oppressor and saviour begins to blur.

After an attack by the infected, Emmy is rescued by the handsome Drew who introduces her to the world of the Silver. Desperate to escape subjugation and confused by her attraction to him, she gathers what remains of her surrogate family and plans to make a break for freedom.

But despite her efforts to resist, she is drawn further into the intrigues of the mysterious Silver through the agency of their ruler, the Primus: Solomon. Emmy refuses to submit to the cold and detached Primus and an attempt on her life makes it clear that he is unable to protect her from the political machinations of his race.

As the connection between them deepens she must choose between her desire and her will to rebel, but can she trust his intentions when everyone is after her blood?

ENDED

Genre:

Thriller / Mystery , Romance

Blurb:

Someone had been trying for the perfect shade of red . . .

When art professor Bianca James tries to save a dying woman, the grudge-holding chief of police is all too quick to catapult her to the top of the suspect list. As if that isn’t enough, her ex-boyfriend’s younger brother, Finn Tierny, is assigned to the case, and she’s faced with a trilogy of dilemmas: go head to head with the chief, stop a cold-blooded killer on her own, or trust another Tierny.

Finn’s return to Riley’s Peak is bittersweet. He’s flooded with memories, both good and bad, as he battles doubts about being a cop, a cantankerous father, a jealous brother, and a drug dealer with a rap-sheet longer than the list of addicts he’s been supplying.

Threats escalate, the suspect list grows, and it becomes clear—the murderer’s resolve to kill Bianca is almost as strong as Finn’s desire to keep her alive.

Blurb:

Contemporary Women’s Fiction

More than meets the eye at face value and stuck in a holding pattern, Augusta Bergeron, Beauchemins’ small-town siren, engages in morally destructive behavior she attributes to maternal abandonment until she eggs-humes her mother’s quiche recipe.

On the heels of mourning the death of her mother, Lindsay Metcalfe, the strait-laced, historian-in-residence hailing from Boston, sets out to preserve the legacy of an impoverished mill. Singed in the crossfire of a soured friendship, she gets more than she bargains for all around when taking a self-centered adolescent under her wing.

Their alternating, first-person narratives expose misconceptions, misdeeds, and maliciousness in the aftermath of a tragedy precipitated by reckless behavior.

Book Review – West Running Wild (West Series Book 1)

Book Review by Josh Grant
Diabolic Shrimp Reviewer

Lions and tigers and…love interests? Oh my.

West Running Wild by Gem Stone is your typical ‘boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl, boy has to take care of a billion animals’ story.  Marcus is smarmy and self centered (and a little bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to nonhumans). Cathy is a strong willed woman with a big heart. When Marcus’ father dies and leaves him the company (with a creative and fun catch), it sets the two of them on a crash course towards each other.

I love Stone’s humor and her diverse sprawl of characters.  There wasn’t a chapter where I didn’t smirk at least a little.  Her writing flows well and the dialogue is excellent.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t help but relate a bit with Marcus (I’m not exactly a huge animal lover myself).  It was fun to watch the journey both characters took and there were some very heartwarming moments.

I don’t typically get into romance, so this was a fun step into a new genre for me.  It’s a feel good tale of trouble and triumph great for any romantic comedy lover in the room.  Bonus points if you just happen to love animals.

Blurb:

Shakira had never felt at home growing up in Surrey, but as soon as she entered the quaint Welsh village she knew she belonged. Maybe it was because of the welcoming villagers. Or perhaps it was the presence of the others whom she sensed nearby; the ones she saw in her dreams, with their strange glowing eyes.

Fate is not always kind. It gives with one hand and takes with the other. There is a reason she didn’t grow up with her own kind.

A rich tale of witchcraft, fae, sorcery, elinefae and dragons; this is a story for all who dare to believe.
