My Magical Rainbow illustrated by Yujin Shin


This is a fun book where you push, pull and slide to see what the magical rainbow has done.

Abams Appleseed sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can get a copy now.

The tabs show you the rainbow, change the spots on the dragon, and create different colors on the mermaid and the merman.

Just make sure the child doesn't get too rough with the tabs and the book will last a long time.

It is magical!

An Honest Lie by Tarryn Fisher


This is a story of a cult that is run by one man.  Her mother knew him in childhood, and she needed a place to stay, so she packs up her and her daughter and goes to join him.

Rainy doesn't like the compound but her mother has nowhere else to go.

The longer they are here, the worse it gets. She and her mother get separated.  Any back talk or refusal to do something is punished.

And then her mother is dead.  The leader says she was on drugs, but Rainy doesn't believe him.

It gets more and more dangerous.  Rainy gets punished often.  Will she survive or will she get killed like her mother?

The Lost : A Mace Reid K-9 Mystery by Jeffrey B. Burton


Mace and Vira are bought to a home where the husband says his wife and little girl were kidnapped.  He lied.  He killed his wife...

Minotaur Books and Edelweiss let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on June 28th.

Vira is the one who finds the dead wife.  Then she hunts for the missing child.  The child and the dog get along well.  But soon she goes missing again.

The child is brave and survives the various places she's taken.  The dogs look for her.

Her father shot himself.  She has no parents left.  No one wants to tell her.

With cops, dog handlers, and Russian killers, it gets pretty sticky.  You don't know who is going to live and if the child will ever be found.

It keeps you reading...

The Torte shop is going well.  They create sandwiches, meals, and all kinds of pastries.  The manager never imagined finding a dead body...

The small town has lots of gossip and you don't what is true or what is just speculation.  He's a member of a band.  Did one of his band mates kill him?  Or perhaps the judge.  Jules isn't sure but she intends to find out.  She asks lots of questions.  

As she gets closer to the killer, the killer realizes she knows too much.  Will she survive or will the killer take her out too?

I was surprised about the killer.  Were you?
