Welcome to the jungle. Today, the female woke up to another strike of an armchair editor. In good news, Amazon did not automatically slap on a quality notice. Had Amazon done this, she would have lost it. The error rate was 1 in 38,800 words. We expect the reader who reported the errors is now meticulously writing a review about how poorly edited the book is, and that nobody should read it because there were ANY errors at all.
(You think we’re kidding… we’re not.)
Today, the birds have decided the bird feeder is amazing, and there is a flock-wide dispute over who gets to eat. Only four or five birds can fit in the feeder at one time. Yes, in, as they decide to crawl right on into the seed and turn feeding into a full-body sport.
The female is highly amused.
And then there is this one long-beaked little bird that is a bug eater, and it is diligently checking the plants on the balcony for treats. Good job, little bird!
Onto the books!

Vengeful spirits, dark secrets, and an unanswered question haunt psychic medium Rebel Hunter.

On a forced vacation, Gideon is in the right place at the wrong time, and his downtime is cut short by the disappearance of a wealthy socialite. As he investigates, he finds himself confronted by a wall of silence. The only bright spot is Rebel Hunter, a man of mystery and danger.
Drawn together, their chemistry is immediate, and Rebel and Gideon struggle with their emotions as they navigate the dark twists of the case. Can both men face their own ghosts to help find a missing woman before it’s too late?
Content Warning: contains violence and sexual content
Our Thoughts: This is labeled as a paranormal romantic suspense. The cover tells us romantic suspense, the description mentions paranormal, but we aren’t sure where this book falls into the grand scheme of paranormal. So, consider yourselves warned, humans! Check the sample to see if this has the right flavor for you, etc, etc. You know, the normal.
That said, the female is highly amused. The dude on this cover is seriously quality-checking his nipple there. Gotta move the harness out of the way just so to confirm that his pristine nipple has escaped any damage from wiggling into said harness. Also, that cannot be comfortable. You’re supposed to wear a shirt under that, sir. Harness over shirt, jacket over harness. This is the true way.
May you recover from the chaffing sooner than later, sir.
Burden of Guilt by Steven Evans (Memoir)
Purchase Link: Amazon (Kindle Unlimited)
Age Rating: N/A, mature audiences recommended.
Note(s) from the Publisher: Includes language and discusses grief.
Some DECISIONS linger long past when they’re made
Some REGRETS haunt you ’til you’re covered in the grave
For each of us, GRIEF is personal and private
When consumed with GUILT, life is stale and quiet
Love may conquer all but, not when it’s muted by SHAME
Death is never easy but, it doesn’t end the PAIN
Those left behind try to live with the memories
Yet, some choices remain vivid reminders; no tears can ease
Some decisions, time can not heal
Some regrets, you must always feel
Life is a damning, draining road of mistakes
A BURDEN OF GUILT only leads to self-hate
Our Thoughts: This isn’t in our ballpark, humans, so we have no idea about if this is good, not good, interesting, not interesting. We are more of the “read funny books” or “venture onto smut mountain” kind of reader. If memoirs are your thing, we’re all for sharing variety, and well… here is some spice to life. If memoirs are your thing, we’d love to hear back from you on this one is interesting, etc, etc, etc.
That said, the female’s current reading choices involve anything that doesn’t require her to think too much. Her brain is exhausted after trying to make words go all day, so any book that requires her to think is too difficult for her. She put all the braining into her own books, and she no longer can make words go in the evenings.
Happy reading, and have a great day, humans!
