Short & Sweet: A fun yet beautifully written novel about a human who finds out that she can turn into a mermaid. I really enjoyed listening to this short novel and realized why all of my girls love these books – they're full of drama, friendships, and, of course, mermaids. Final Verdict: Kessler does a fantastic job with Emily's voice and I can't wait to read more of her adventures.

As a bookworm, I have read plenty of historical novel, and to be honest, the Victorian period is one of my favorites. So when I got my hands on A Spy in the House, I was very curious to see how Lee would present her Victorian […]
Mary has a new assignment for the Agency – one which involves her dressing like a boy to investigate a mysterious death on a work site. This disguise may be a reminder of the past for her – a problem which she pushes aside to perform the job necessary to find the truth behind the accident/murder on the site. Although, when James Easton makes an appearance, she must yet again cover up the real reason why she is where she is and dressed as a boy no less. But will James distract her from her investigation? I have to admire […]
