Raise Your Hand If You Have a Good Book to Share

Hey all you voracious readers!

How about we do some sharing. I'll go first.

It just so happens that I just completed reading the spotlighted book from last week, Athens Ambuscade by Kristen Wilks.

Let me break it down for you:

Wilks does a great job of creating interesting and maybe even quirky characters. And I do like quirky (since I have been characterized that way on occasion - I think that was meant in a good way???)

The setting is really intriguing and plays in well with the story line.

The plot keeps you guessing when the "next shoe will drop." The antics will have you gasping and chortling in the same breath.

The romance part is clever.

The spiritual message hit home for me, someone who is quite planned and controlling.

Wilks was masterful in including moments of slapstick humor with a bit of hold your breath suspense.

Overall, Athens Ambuscade was a delight to read, and I would recommend it for your reading list.

Now, it's your turn. What are you reading or have read recently that you know you need to share with others? Please share in the comments.


  1. Thank you so much, Paula. I'm so glad you enjoyed Athens Ambuscade! Right now, I just finished Taliesin by Stephen R. Lawhead. The author creates such a rich evocative world full of ancient peoples who feel alive and true. It is a slower read, but well worth the effort. One of my favorite authors if I want to sit down and relax with a feast of imagery and characters that stay with you.

  2. Okay, my list of must read books is growing!

  3. Oh, this story sounds so good. I want to read every Pelican book, but I need to sleep.

  4. LoRee, I know what you mean. Too bad I have to have sleep! LOL

  5. Great review!
    Thanks for sharing
    Good luck and God's blessings
