Review of "Frankie Jones"

Abandoned by his father and orphaned by his mother's death, Frankie Jones entered adult life with gusto and determination. Was it the American Dream that Frankie sought or was it just to find himself and his place in the world? What Frankie ultimately found was sadly not what he was looking for or expected. J. R. Klein has created a character that will drive you to invoke questions about yourself, but there is one thing that is certain. You will not want to put this book down and when you're finished you will be very glad you read it. 5 Stars

Review of "Premonition"

This story starts in Homeville, Virginia in both 1972 and 1864. It tells a tale of mistrust, deceit, infidelity, and murder. The author begins in 1972 with murder and flashes back to the civil war period to provide the background of a secretive family with interracial relations. I admire Lowe's success in actually bringing together two separate stories and numerous characters. This is the fourth review I have done for Tower Lowe and without a doubt, Premonition has proven to be her most difficult undertaking. If you admire an author's technical skills you will be delighted when you read this saga. 4 Stars

Review of "Polar Melt"

This is another well-written novel from Martin Roy Hill. The fast-paced and riveting yarn describes events in the Arctic during a time of rapid ice melt. The Russians have built what appears to be an oil drilling platform, and the Americans have a spy ship disguised as a research vessel monitoring the Russian's activities. As the plot thickens, it holds the reader within its grasp while the strong clear voice of Hill comes shining through. If you like an action novel, get this one. You won't be disappointed. 5 Stars
