Summary:Stella Gordon’s life is a lie.

She does not belong in Thunder Basin, Nebraska. As the star witness in a murder trial against a drug dealer, Stella is now in the Witness Protection Program. The small-town locals can never know who she really is. Not even Chet Falconer, the one boy who makes her want to reveal her true self. She knows that telling the truth will only bring violence to this safe haven.

Despite how hard Stella tries to stay under the radar, danger is fast approaching. Criminals have a way of getting rid of witnesses, and Stella may have made the one mistake that could lead the cold-blooded men hunting for her right to her doorstep.

Book Review: The Secret to Hummingbird Cake

 TSHBCTitle: The Secret to Hummingbird Cake

Author: Celeste Fletcher McHale

Publication: Thomas Nelson

Length: 304 pages

Plot- When all else fails, turn to the divine taste of hummingbird cake.
In the South you always say “yes, ma’am” and “no, ma’am.” You know everybody’s business. Football is a lifestyle not a pastime. Food—especially dessert— is almost a religious experience. And you protect your friends as fiercely as you protect your family— even if the threat is something you cannot see. In this spot-on Southern novel brimming with wit and authenticity, you’ll laugh alongside lifelong friends, navigate the sometimes rocky path of marriage, and roll through the outrageous curveballs that life sometimes throws . . . from devastating pain to absolute joy. And if you’re lucky, you just may discover the secret to hummingbird cake along the way.

Summary:Forgive us, Father, for we have sinned.
Brooklyn Stevens sits in a pool of her own blood, tied up and gagged. No one outside of these dank basement walls knows she’s here. No one can hear her scream.
 Sofia Flores knows she shouldn’t have gotten involved. When she befriended Riley, Grace, and Alexis on her first day at school, she admired them, with their perfect hair and their good-girl ways. They said they wanted to save Brooklyn. They wanted to help her. Sofia didn’t realize they believed Brooklyn was possessed.
 Now, Riley and the girls are performing an exorcism on Brooklyn—but their idea of an exorcism is closer to torture than salvation. All Sofia wants is to get out of this house. But there is no way out. Sofia can’t go against the other girls…unless she…

Book Review: Their Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner

Coffee And Books To Go

IMG_20160218_163214911About: The third and final installment in the series, focuses on Sofia Quinn  a con artist and Gideon Marchant a hacker known as the Knave of Hearts. They must work together to fight against LRI And end up meeting Jubilee, Flynn, Lilac, and Tarver (the stars of the previous novels) in order to take down LaRoux Industries before it tears apart the galaxy with the whispers.

My Thoughts: First off if you don’t know this series the first book, its These Broken Stars, so check it out. Now for this book, it was a roller coaster. I thought Sofia was so exciting being a con artist and having all these tricks up her sleeves. So it was fun to be in her head. Also the cover is GORGEOUS! Anyways I thought it was a really nice way to tie together the series and see how entangled all six characters really…
