Angel with Burnt Wings

By: Scarlett Jensen    Format: eBook.    Read: November 2014.

Alice was a young girl with an open future. However, due to abuse and circumstances her self-esteem disappeared. Seeking love and acceptance, she fell into the wrong crowd and wound up in jail. This is the story of how Alice became the woman she is today and how she finally tried to find love and acceptance within her own heart.

This is a novel. The author declares that it is based off of Alice from Wonderland and even alludes to this character occasionally in the story. However, from the beginning the author explains in detail how she interviewed real life women in jail and learned their life stories. The author’s goal is to tell their story by creating the fictional Alice. Written like a memoir, Alice recounts her days from the childhood abuse to the crime spree and eventually finding God through the help of therapy. This is a very profound book, focused more on life lessons than a normal flow of a novel.

Enjoy!

Personal Shelves Review

The beginning of October, we had to bury my grandfather. The days leading up to the trip, my mind was scattered and I couldn’t focus on anything. I tried reading different books from The List, but my focus wasn’t there. I tried to watch a movie, but my dvd player was broken. I was stuck… I couldn’t get past my own mind, so I went scrolling through my library on my Nook. I stumbled across this book that I had downloaded for free. It had the promise of a sweet, short romance, so I gave it a shot. Here are my thoughts:

The Cards of Life and Death

By: Colleen Gleason     Format: Paperback        Read: August 2014

 

Diana Iverson has it all, a blossoming malpractice firm and a seemingly perfect fiancé, when she receives news of her estranged aunt’s sudden passing. Diana inherits her aunt’s old home and decides to take a last minute trip up to Maine. While there, she discovers her aunt’s tarot cards which keep popping up at strange times, along with a handsome neighbor and his big, black lab. However, when strange incidents keep happening and several sabotage attempts on the house and her car, Diana begins to suspect her aunt’s death wasn’t from natural causes, but she may be putting her own life at risk.

Colleen Gleason’s mystical book is descriptive and will have readers feeling as though they are living the story. This book is about learning to conquer old insecurities and trusting in your intuition, in order to be open to trusting others. The second half of the book picks up the pace and is packed full of suspense. Though at times the storyline can be predictable, the ending contains a major twist that will leave readers shocked and speechless.

 

Enjoy!

Summary:
Security Consultant Vic Andrews lives by his Man Laws:

Never mess with your best friend’s sister
Never get caught
Never get attached

But he can’t deny his irresistible attraction to Gina Delgado, a young widow with three kids and plenty of strings attached. Even so, having a physical relationship doesn’t mean they’re “in a relationship.”

Gina lost her husband to tragedy; she is not getting emotionally involved with another man in a dangerous profession. Sleeping with Vic is just stress relief.

Until one of Vic’s assignments goes wrong and the target selects Gina and her kids for revenge. There’s nothing Vic won’t do to protect Gina and the children–the family he realizes, too late, he wants. He’ll accomplish his mission but will he have lost his only chance at true love?
