Curse of the Dead Eye Doll – Thomas Kingsley Troupe – 5 stars
If you know the story of Robert the Doll this is a must read! If you are not familiar with the story of Robert then you have to grab this book!

One young man is about to find out what happens when you cross Robert!
If your kids (or you) love a spooky read, then this is one that you cannot afford to miss out on! Perfect for a weekend read, or just a great fall afternoon outdoors. Add this to your TBR list today!

Death Of A New American – Mariah Fredericks – 5 stars
The year seems to be moving perfectly for Jane. Her mistress is about to be married, and the only thing going on is the constant bickering of the mothers as they prepare for their children’s wedding. Louise, however, is not as optimistic as her maid, and she is dreading the marriage, the arguing is wearing on her nerves, and the prospect of taking her place in society is daunting.
But as they head off to William (Louise’s fiance) uncles home, they are sure to find some rest and recuperation before the wedding…. or will they?
When the nanny is murdered, Jane finds herself drawn into trying to figure out what is going on, how to keep her mistress happy and still on target for getting married, and determined to solve the mystery. There are some things better left untouched, but Jane forges ahead anyway. With the help of a newspaper acquaintance, they dive into the murder of Sofia.
This book kept me hooked the entire way through. I loved it! This is one book that you are going to want to add to your list to read now! The Death of A New American will give you some twists and turns and give you a few head-scratching moments along the way! A fabulous who-dun-it book!

Tragic Daughters of Charles I – Sarah-Beth Watkins – 5 stars
Princesses are supposed to have bright futures of glittering balls, grand marriages, and dreams of ruling a country as queen one day. They are not supposed to be moving from place to place, worried about their family, and whether or not their
The three daughters of Charles I led sad and short lives. None of them lived long, and each of them faced different challenges in their lives. From their father being beheaded while they were young, to the struggle of their brother to gain the throne of England, these princesses led very different lives from some of their counterparts. Instead of having grand matches and large doweries, they were living on the generosity of others.
This book was amazing! I can’t give it all away, you are going to have to read this one yourself. The sad and short lives of these princesses still evoke sympathy for their short and dramatic lives. Add this to your to-read shelf now!
