Review: Purple Hibiscus

Book Description:

Fifteen-year-old Kambili’s world is circumscribed by the high walls and frangipani trees of her family compound. Her wealthy Catholic father, under whose shadow Kambili lives, while generous and politically active in the community, is repressive and fanatically religious at home.

When Nigeria begins to fall apart under a military coup, Kambili’s father sends her and her brother away to stay with their aunt, a University professor, whose house is noisy and full of laughter. There, Kambili and her brother discover a life and love beyond the confines of their father’s authority. The visit will lift the silence from their world and, in time, give rise to devotion and defiance that reveal themselves in profound and unexpected ways. This is a book about the promise of freedom; about the blurred lines between childhood and adulthood; between love and hatred, between the old gods and the new.

Preview: Locked Door

Dear readers,

I'm happy to announce, AGAIN, that the third volume in the Angela Hunter series, titled "Locked Door" has just been published. It gets even more mysterious and suspenseful than the last one, "Jammed Door." I can't really get enough of Angela Hunter, so I'm not done with her yet :). You can read my post about Jammed Door HERE.

Book description:

The detectives believe that someone is out for those involved in the closed-door mystery, so they try to stay ahead of the game. But after another body is found behind a locked door, it changes the whole game entirely.

I have also added a free preview below. Enjoy! Share! Comment! :)

Review: Heller's Revenge

Book description:

Tilly Chalmers’ sexy boss, Heller, has a talent for making enemies. Not a forgive-and-forget kind of man, he has a few scores to settle - including one with Tilly’s brother. Tilly is kept busy juggling that constant worry with managing three new assignments as a rookie security officer - crowd control at a lingerie parade, babysitting an immature, sex-starved IT billionaire, and an unusual and emotional job with a famous environmental activist. But as usual, Tilly’s assignments don’t go quite to plan. All this, as well as trying to keep her vow not to sleep with her beautiful and enigmatic boss, no matter how much of a temptation he proves.
