Welcome to the first of the author updates this week, and the first author with recent reviews is Lucinda E. Clarke for Savage Safari (Amie in Africa Book 5).
About the book
Amie, the world’s most reluctant spy is back.
Amie is assured that her next assignment will be easy and very safe. How could a safari camp in the African bush along with the President and international representatives from several countries possibly be dangerous?
She has no choice but to do as they say.
Simon has flown back to England for a brief meeting and then disappears. Amie has no idea where he is.
But not everyone is pleased about the rare and precious minerals discovered in the north and they are prepared to do whatever it takes to disrupt the safari and stop the auction even if it causes an international incident and people are killed.
Amie now has two lives to save and faces a bleak future on her own.
Fans of Wilbur Smith, Peter Rimmer and Tony Park will love this series by award winning author Lucinda E Clarke set in the modern day in the African bush.
One of the recent reviews of the book
Is this book 5 already? For some reason I struggle to click with books in series but I have to say I can make an exception for Lucinda Clarke’s Amie series. I think I have enjoyed these books largely because the author has a way of painting pictures with her words that is in a class of its own. A bit different to the last one I read but here I found intrigue and suspense in abundance and I thoroughly enjoyed my latest visit to Africa courtesy of Ms. Clarke. Excellent structure, clear, captivating plot and very much a page turner. Pick this one up it stands alone but I would recommend you read all the Amie series, you won’t be disappointed. Great read.

Time to catch up with Sue Coletta and her release on Augusts 7th Racked...
It starts with an innocent stuffed animal. It ends in mind-numbing terror.
Five missing boys and an adult corpse found in the town’s water shed was only the beginning for Sage and Niko Quintano. After a hooded-stranger gives their son, Noah, a stuffed animal—the exact Christmas moose given to all the missing boys days before their abductions—their lives spiral downward into uncertainty.
Could Noah be the next boy to go missing?
As they piece together each cryptic clue, the future looks more and more grim. But what they soon discover blows everyone’s mind, the truth teetering on the unfathomable.
What does it all mean, and where do they go from here?

Denise H Gripping. Gritty. Emotional. August 7, 2019
This is such a great series! Every time I pick up one of Coletta’s books, the rest of the world disappears as I delve into the pages of the new thriller. It is impossible not to be swept up in the mystery and track the clues right alongside Niko and Sage. This read is another emotional powerhouse for both Sage and Niko as they fight one of a parent’s greatest fears…a missing child. While Niko, Frankie, and team are deeply involved in a new murder in the county, Sage is pulled into the mystery of children going missing in the area. When Noah, their son, is given the same toy the other missing children received before their disappearances strong emotions and irrational behaviors take over and she dives in headfirst to find the abductor and bring them to justice. Will Sage and Niko be able to piece all the clues together before time runs out and another child disappears? And what if that child is Noah?
Alongside Sage and Niko, we also get more of the fabulous Frankie (Niko’s second in command) and her sassy behavior and snarky remarks. She has absolutely no filter and says the first thing that pops in her mind and most of her comments are hilarious (and ill-timed but that is what makes them funnier). She also has her own side drama continuing in this story and I am extremely curious as to what will happen when Niko discovers her secret. I really want to know! I am on pins and needles every time a re-telling scene comes up and connects to the present happenings that could possibly expose her. The suspense on this is a killer.
RACKED is full of intense moments, intriguing characters, gripping scenes, emotional turmoil, and a strong storyline that will keep you glued to the pages. I laughed, held my breath, and might have even shed a tear while reading this breathtaking thriller. This book is a wonderful addition to the series and I cannot wait to see what is in store next for Sage and Niko.

The final author today is Dorinda Duclos with a review of the short story and verse collection, Short & Not always Sweet
About Short and not always Sweet
Imagine yourself being lost in a faraway land, or sailing on a pirate ship. Perhaps you’ll find yourself in a predicament, or a romantic rendezvous. From passages to longer, more detailed stories, these are writings that are sure to capture your imagination and evoke emotions, from sadness, to madness, to happiness and beyond.
One of the recent reviews for the collection
Duclos offers a generous selection of over 60 short stories, pieces of poetic prose, and flash fiction in a compilation that kept me enthralled for an entire afternoon. The writing is lovely, evocative, and in many cases emotional. Some pieces are lyrical and heartfelt reflections with themes centered on nature, serenity, and empowerment. Others are dark forays into ghostly hauntings and the realms of murder and revenge. Some of my favorites are Patience, Dusk, Wilted, and I Am. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon or to savor over a week, one page at a time.
