Book Review ~ The Illusionist's Apprentice by Kristy Cambron

The Illusionist's Apprentice

I have enjoyed all of Kristy Cambron's previous books, but this one is by far my favorite. If you are a lover of historical fiction, I can't recommend this book highly enough. It was a great story with unforgettable characters. The chemistry between FBI agent Elliot and magician Wren was very well written. There was a slow build of romantic tension through out. I also enjoyed the back story featuring Harry Houdini and his quest to debunk the psychics of his time. I would recommend this book to fans of historical mystery and romance as well as readers interested in magicians and magic shows.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley for the purpose of review.

Can't Wait Wednesday ~ A Secret Courage by Tricia Goyer

What I'm waiting for:
A Secret Courage (The London Chronicles #1)

When does it release? Goodreads says April 1, but Amazon has it available now! I've already got my Kindle copy.

Why am I waiting? I love a good WW2 story. This one looks like a lot of fun.

Top Ten Tuesday ~ Series I Would Love to Start This Spring

I'll confess, I'm not a good series reader. I used to read them all the time, but, I've found in more recent years, I prefer stand alone books. Still there are a few that have caught my eye. Here are the series I hope to start this spring and summer.

Love Unexpected (Beacons of Hope, #1)

Still Life (Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, #1)

Through Waters Deep (Waves of Freedom, #1)

Widows & Orphans (Rachael Flynn, #1)

Rules of Murder (Drew Farthering Mystery #1)

Irish Meadows (Courage to Dream #1)

When Jesus Wept (The Jerusalem Chronicles #1)

The Land Uncharted (Uncharted, #1)

The Heiress of Winterwood (Whispers on the Moors, #1)

Submerged (Alaskan Courage, #1)

All of these series are complete except the Drew Farthing Mysteries. That one seems to be more open-ended. I own the first book in each of these, so I really should get going. Any recommendations on which one I should start with? Let me know in the comments.

Check out more top ten lists at The Broke and the Bookish.
