Baalboden has been ravaged. The brutal Commander's whereabouts are unknown. And Rachel, grief stricken over her father's death, needs Logan more than ever. With their ragged group of survivors struggling to forge a future, it's up to Logan to become the leader they need—with Rachel by his side. Under constant threat from rival Carrington's army, who is after the device that controls the Cursed One, the group decides to abandon the ruins of their home and take their chances in the Wasteland.

Honey Pie

So I read another book that I didn't realize was part of a series. I really need to stop doing that. I like reading books in order. It almost didn't feel like a series, so I guess that's good. I'm talking about Honey Pie, the fourth book in the Cupcake Club series by Donna Kauffman.

We travel to Sugarberry Island, where we meet Honey. A woman starting over in a way. She can go somewhere and start fresh. One problem. Her special ability gets in the way and before she knows it. It seems like everyone knows what she can do. The one thing she wanted to avoid.

She has help though to get her through everything. Dylan. At first Dylan wants to avoid her. Fix her car and have her go on her way. Soon, though? Dylan and Honey get to know each other. Dylan just be the one to get her to have in faith in herself and her ability.

If you want a romance that's cute, fluffy, etc? Check this one out. I liked getting to know the secondary characters. I'm guessing I can get to know them even more in the first three books, which I definitely plan to do. I really don't have anything bad to say for this one. Check out the book or series and let me know what you think.

A Murder at Rosamund's Gate Book Thoughts

If you want a good murder mystery, I definitely recommend A Murder at Rosamund's Gate. Susanna Calkins definitely keeps you guessing.

The main character Lucy is a young woman working as a servant for a local magistrate. Her position is a chambermaid. The book takes place in the 1660's.

Life for Lucy isn't that bad. Sure, her status in life is a servant, but she seems happy. Her master and his family never treat her wrong, especially the master's son, Adam.

One day her life changes. A close friend of hers is found murdered. With the help of Adam, she tries to find who killed her friend, especially when someone close to her becomes a suspect. Lucy better figure out who killed her friend before it's too late and Lucy becomes the next victim.

I definitely recommend this book. I loved that you have to keep trying to guess who killed her friend. I have to say, I didn't expect the killer. Never saw it coming a mile away. At the end, I had to think about the book and what I read to see if I missed any clues.

Please check this book out and let me know if you thought you had the right person for the killer. I bet you'll be surprised.
