Serenity Possessed A Alexander Shelby Thriller by Craig A. Hart & S. J. Varengo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Shelby Alexander is back. The former boxer/ fixer is always in demand. Shelby lives In a small town, Serenity. Shelby wants a quiet little town to get away from everything. Since the last book, some things have changed, but Shelby is the same guy he’s always been.

Every town has a story. Serenity is no different. A movie company is making a film in Serenity. The producer needs Shelby to protect his set. Weird things are happening. Shelby is not a superstitious guy. He has a bad feeling about the house which the film is about. Being a very reasonable man, Shelby can’t explain to his long-time friend and business partner, Mac, precisely what’s wrong or why it’s wrong.

This is a quick read. Serenity Possessed is my favorite Shelby Alexander book out of the eight in the series. I may say this after each one. The books do keep getting better. I hope there is a sequel to this exact one. Serenity Possessed is a cliffhanger. I’ll be impatiently waiting for the next Shelby Alexander and hope it picks up where this left off

Old Bones by Preston & Child (Cory Swanson # 1)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Special Agent Cory Swanson is fresh out of the FBI academy. Cory Swanson’s character comes from the Agent Pendergast series. Cory is on the bottom rung in her FBI office, which is the way all new agents begin.

Books Preston and Child write are among my favorites. Cory Swanson is a developing character. Cory is proving herself to the other characters and reader at the same time. Cory’s first field case is about old bones. Grave robberies and stolen artifacts surrounded by people going missing or possibly murdered.

I love this book as much as the Agent Pendergast

books. The second one, The Scorpions Tail, has been published. Cory Swanson owns this series. Pendergast may or may not make an appearance in a small role. Cory Swanson now has her series that is independent of any oth

Forgotten Creek. A Winston Radhauser Mystery # 10 by Susan Clayton-Goldberg

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Releasing on May 18, 2021

Detective Radhauser lives and works in the smallish town of Ashland, Oregon.  This book does pick up where 9 left off.  You learn all you need to know inside this book, making Forgotten Creek a stand-alone book.
Detective Radhauser (Known as Wind by family and friends) is a compassionate man both about life and his job.  Wind has his intense way of working a case.  Meticulous and detail-oriented, Radhauser puts puzzle pieces together others may not see.
Forgotten Creek is about forgotten people otherwise considered the homeless.  People of Ashland know they exist, but the homeless are part of a different lifestyle that citizens prefer to ignore.  Winston Radhauser, having just returned from a trip, finds himself at a second homeless person’s murder.  Radhauser, being senior detective, gets the order to take the lead on both murders, which Winston does reluctantly, not wanting to offend his very competent junior partner who caught the first murder in Wind’s absence. This new case is getting too much coverage.  His boss tells Radhauser just to solve it.  Unfortunately for all involved, what is desired is not always what is right.
Tension at the police station is the result of Radhauser taking the lead.  Homeless are protesting since the victims are homeless.  The protests are disturbing an otherwise quiet town.  Radhauser can’t just do his job.  He has pressure from above to make an arrest. 
Things in Ashland do not improve as Detective Radhauser follows orders.  Tenacious Radhauser continues his investigation until he is satisfied.  Radhauser is working against authority and time to find the truth.  An arrest does not end a case for this detective.  Radhauser must know he has the murderer. 
This book is unpredictably eventful.  Intertwining lives unfold as tensions rise.  Detective Radhauser does not give up until he is content with the result. The detective works endless hours and travels wherever the case takes him.  Detective Radhauser is a resourceful cowboy detective who has become my favorite character.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Book

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Audible

I miss this story. From the beginning, Wayward Galaxy had me hooked. The AI’s in this book are great characters. Alexa and Brody complement each other. I love Brody with that booming personality. All the characters are well defined. The confusion over pretty much everything is an exciting element. I hope to continue with the characters. I’m addicted. I’m hoping I will find book 2 when I search.

was published in 2020. Army Rangers are on an interstellar colony ship to escape earth as WWIII is going on. Eventually, other ships will follow to live on this new planet. The Army Rangers have many unexpected events to deal with, beginning with landing on a faraway planet.
