Book Review | When The Skies Cry By Steve N. Lee

I was very kindly asked if I’d like to receive a copy of the fantastic Steve N. Lee’s new novel *When the skies cry to review and of course, I said yes! This is the second book in this dog lovers series. I reviewed the first one As The Stars Fall on my blog, in case you missed it. I fell in love with this series and was so excited to read and review the new book.

 

The Blurb:

Sometimes, the one you’re saving is saving you.

Harley loses everything when his master dies — his home, his best friend, his reason for living. Day after day, he trudges the streets, trembling from the biting cold, whimpering from the gnawing hunger.

Across town, Rachel has an alimony hearing looming and a make-or-break deadline hurtling toward her. Yet, they aren’t her biggest worries — her autistic son has withdrawn so far into his private world, he barely acknowledges she even exists.

Luckily, the magic of life is in the surprises no one ever sees coming…

Book Review | As The Stars Fall By Steve N. Lee

I was very kindly asked if I’d like to receive a copy of the fantastic Steve N. Lee’s new novel *As The Stars Fall to review and of course I said yes! I’m usually a crime/thriller type of girl but I will reach for other genres occasionally depending on my mood and the story. This was actually the first book I’ve ever read from this author and I’m so pleased to have found someone new to read. I’ll definitely be looking at getting more of his books to read.

 

The Blurb:

A desperate dog. A scarred girl. A bond nothing can break.

When a young girl suffering with her own tragedy comes across an injured young dog, she can’t resist helping him. Both having braved the worst the world had to throw at them, the pair quickly form an unbreakable bond. They picture their future as an endless stream of adventures filled with love, laughter, and good times.

But life has one last cruel trick to play…

At one moment heart-warming, the next heart-breaking, this is the story of a devoted dog’s rollercoaster journey to be the one thing every good dog dreams of being — a best friend. Through a touching tale, As The Stars Fall explores how compassion can make us whole again and friendship can heal even the most broken of hearts.

Book Review | A Dog’s Purpose By W. Bruce Cameron

 I made a goal last year of reading just one book a month and I have to say I’ve started a couple but haven’t had much time to sit and read but then I picked up the book I’m reviewing today and couldn’t put it down. I’ve missed reading and I have so many books I’ve bought over the past couple of years that I haven’t even read and I want to try and get through some of them by the end of the year.

The Blurb:

Surprised to find himself reborn as a rambunctious golden-haired puppy after a tragically short life as a stray mutt, Bailey’s search for his new life’s meaning leads him into the loving arms of eight-year-old Ethan. During their countless adventures, Bailey joyously discovers how to be a good dog. But this life as a family pet is not the end of Bailey’s journey. Reborn as a puppy yet again, Bailey wonders if he will ever find his purpose.

I bought myself this book after seeing the trailer to the movie. I’m one of those people if there’s a movie based on a book I’ll always read the book first before seeing the movie. I enjoyed this book, it only took me a couple of days to read. I couldn’t put it down. I like W.Bruce Cameron and his writing, you may recognise his 8 simple rules for dating my teenage daughter which was turned into a hit TV show.
