Blurb: Grace knows that the only way she can survive life is to bury her past. But nothing stays buried forever... It’s been two years since she lost so much. Two years since she started a new life, in a new college, with a new group of friends. Two years, and now her troubles are rushing back. When Derek walks into Grace’s life, he makes her feel things she’d hoped never to feel again. The box she hid all her secrets in is opening, and Grace might not be able to keep it shut this time. As each of her traumas resurfaces, Grace isn’t sure having Derek at her side is enough to save her. And if he’s not, Grace isn’t sure she’ll come out the other side fully intact. If you like “The Problem with Forever” by Jennifer L Armentrout or “Hopeless” by Colleen Hoover, then Saving Grace will feed your addiction for a romance with real-life struggles. ↓Buy Links↓ Amazon: FREE on Kindle Unlimited

Saving Grace is an well written engaging and emotional read,    The book focuses on Grace a college student has lost so much.  Its now two years since the loss of her brother James.  She has a new life with a new group friends, but is keeping secrets about her past.  When Grace meets Derek her next door neighbour she slowly start opening up.

There are plenty of secrets throughout the book.  We slowly find different things about Grace and her friends.  There were quite a few twists that kept me guessing.

I really enjoyed the relationships between a few characters.  Mainly Grace and Amber and Grace and Derek.

Overall this book was very intriguing.  It is a emotional read full of drama, romance and secrets

I would give this book 4/5.

Spellcaster- George Bachman

Spellcaster by George Bachman
Released: April 3rd 2018
Pages: 262
Buy it: Amazon

In a turn-of-the century England steeped in steampunk and magic, sixteen year-old Christine Daniel learns her life-threatening illness stems from her paranormal visions. During the London Season, Allie, her beloved sister and the family heir, seeks a noble match while she searches the occult underground for answers. But the only witch who can help will not do so unless Allie marries her beau, an impoverished aristocrat, so that the illicit pair can share Allie's wealth. 

Review-  I was very excited by the plot.  I was enjoying the way it was written. There were characters I loved and other characters I did enjoyed the beginning of the book,  even though it was going a little slow.  I got a bit distracted and confused by the middle.

I was quite liking Christine.  She was a very good character to follow. I got some if the other characters mixed up every now and then.  Once I got through that, there were characters I really like other I didn't.

 If I did not get distracted I might of enjoyed it better.  I was intrigued to how it would end.  Even though I was a bit distracted, overall I rather enjoyed it.

In the end I gave this book, 3/5.

Have you read Spellcaster? What did you think of it? Would you want to read it?
