This week I read...


I was so excited that the authors of this book sent me a not-yet-released copy of The Light Bringer to review!  I was a little nervous, because this is obviously not my usual Chick Lit book.  But I was happy to find this book very entertaining and it really drew me in.  

Here is the synopsis:

When Police Sergeant Alan Crane is on duty, who he "Protects and Serves, reaches far beyond the world of the living . . .
Sixteen people will die on Police Officer Alan Crane's watch. But while tragic and untimely death is no stranger to the jaded ex-Marine, his new-found supernatural ability to lead these people to their spiritual fates sends him on a sensational and scary saga that will ultimately answer: Why these sixteen? What do they have in common? And why has Alan been chosen to bring them to the light?

I actually read this book over Memorial Day Weekend and found the storyline intriguing & suspenseful.  The writing is very smooth and it makes the characters very easy to picture.  It is very difficult to accurately describe this book without giving away the fun parts, but I did enjoy it.  I would also definitely recommend this book for those who have ever lost a loved one.  It certainly paints an enjoyable picture of the afterlife and darkness vs light.  I've often found myself thinking about the story and the book quite a bit since reading it.

Oooooo, a Kindle! I'll definitely be back on Monday!
I'm usually wary of books with multiple authors as I don't find they read as well as single ones. Seems like an interesting concept though. Like fantasy mixed with mystery.
