Review of "The Reconstruction"

Jessica Sanford, the protagonist, is an adopted Asian woman who does facial reconstruction and works with law enforcement. During a reconstruction assignment for an apparent homicide victim, she suspects the victim is her unknown twin sister. The story narrates her search to identify the victim and to determine if she is related. Mr. Wiegers does a good job with the main character's development and the book is an easy read. However, there is a lack of excitement and Jessica's personal and professional relationships are underdeveloped. All in all, for his first attempt at fiction, I think Mr. Wiegers did a good job. 3 Stars

Review of "The Abduction Chronicles"

Herein, there are aliens, spaceships, domed cities, alien abductions, clones, and descendants from the future. All these are a part of the life of Thomas Hay, or so he says. Oh, and he has had multiple wives, he's quite the ladies man, again so he says. Then there is time travel to the future and back. The characters are mildly interesting and the book is written basically as a memoir. All in all, it's not a bad read, but not one that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I think the best part of this book, is the humorous side of the author. Mr. Hay has an intriguing way of keeping the reader interested, even if it's not in their preferred genre. 3 Stars
