Grey Areas is the first book in the Grey
Areas Saga written by Brad Carl.
Henry Fields just moves in the small and
quiet town of Gable, Iowa. After finding himself a job as a store clerk, Henry
manages to secure a place to stay and easily blends in with the residents of
Though quite friendly and undoubtedly
helpful, Henry remains elusive. That, however, does not deter Claire Mathison
from being attracted to him. Then, an unforeseen event throws Henry in the
middle of the action in the, otherwise, quiet and seemingly uninteresting town.
This is a fast-paced psychological
thriller that will keep you reading past your bedtime so you could finish the
book in one sitting. Very interesting and extremely unpredictable, the story is
moving, at times funny and at all times suspenseful. The author creates
intriguing characters and includes just enough back stories to make the
characters relatable. Though the ending is a bit of a cliffhanger, the book
does not feel incomplete to me. Needless to say, I enjoyed it a lot.

Justice is a novella written by Scott
Brynn is an unhappy wife to a
passive-aggressive husband, who, she believes, ignores her and abuses her
emotionally. So, to get even with him for the pain he causes her, she gets back
at him in the best way she knows how and calls it justice.
This is a short but thought-provoking
story that features different people’s perceptions of justice. While the
perceptions may be viewed as twisted and unacceptable by some readers, the
possibility that there are people who actually harbor such perceptions is, somehow,
sad and even, at some point, scary.
The author brings up a common yet ignored
truth about marriages and successfully piques the interest of readers who might
not be aware or consciously ignore that such truth exists. Due to the shortness
of the story, the backstories provided by the author are enough only for the
readers to understand the characters’ behaviors but not sufficient to empathize
with them. Similarly, the scenes at court are too limited to provoke the
readers to immerse themselves in the story.
Still, this is a great and well-written novella.
Congratulations to Scott Hughes (@scottmhughes) on such
an enjoyable book. For more books by the author, click HERE.
The Bordello Kid is Book 1 of Farr and Fat Jack western
historical book series by Kendall Hanson.
When lone drifter Farrel Gunn arrives at
Seven Rivers, he makes a very important statement: he can take care of himself.
So, when Madam Lilah Craft needs a replacement lookout for her ‘boarding house’
her son Jack knows that Farr is just the right man for the job.
But when Farr rescues one of the ‘ladies’
from a competing bordello and takes her to Madam Craft’s boarding house, his
heroic act stirs up a set of complications within the establishment he is
trying to protect. Farr, however, vows to protect the woman, Madam Craft’s
girls and the boarding house, even if it means risking his own life.
This is a very interesting and
entertaining western historical fiction which reminds me of Lonesome Dove by
Larry McMurtry. The plot, though simple and a little predictable, is
interesting enough to keep the readers hooked. Despite the shortness of the
book, important characters are given sufficient back stories to make them
relatable. Among my favorite characters are Farr Gunn and Madam Lilah Craft.
Farr is kind, tough and smart albeit a little naïve which actually makes him
more endearing while Madam Craft is motherly, tough, firm and, I could say,
Though I find the ending a little abrupt
and anticlimactic, I still consider it very satisfying.
