Murphy Print Length: 119 Publication Date: January 15, 2017 Sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC Language: English Formats:  Kindle Goodreads Genres: Science Fiction Events: Prime Ministers During the Alien Era is a mock history text during the period of Roswell crash landing until the “current” space war. The text focuses on politics and personality conflicts, both fiction and non-fiction. First, let me start off by saying, with the exception of Star Trek, I’m not big on anything alien—that’s not to say I never read or watch alien-type things because after all, I have written reviews on such topics. That said, I found this mock history text…

Heldt File Size: 869KB Print Length: 481 Publication Date: February 8, 2017 Sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC Language: English ASIN: B06X3RKB37 Formats:  Kindle Goodreads Genres: Historical Fiction I honestly don’t think it gets much better than this. Hannah’s Moon is the fifth book of John Heldt’s American Journey series. I’ve read two other books in the series (Indiana Belle and Class of ’69) and thoroughly enjoyed each. However, if I were to give the prize ribbon to a story-line, Hannah’s Moon would win by a mile. It tells the story of a young couple in 2017 who wants nothing more than to have a baby. They’ve spent years trying and failing…

    Book Review – The Murder of Manny Grimes by Angela Kay | angelakaysbooks on WordPress.com

A fifteen-year mystery, the death of Manny Grimes, and a suspected murder/suicide are all tangled together in this thrilling novel.
