Review: The Trouble with Fate by Leigh Evans

Filled with magic, mayhem and a snarky anti-heroine you’ll gravitate to! While I found that book starts off a little slow, you really get a good look into the life of the main character, Hedi Peacock which sets the tone of the story. Hedi is a half-fae, half-were, working as a Starbucks barrista, who has left her old name and life behind the night her family was murdered in front of her and she loses her twin brother, taken by the […]

When I find theses rare jewels, I can’t help but read one book after the other…so I got to thinking (can you smell the wood burning?…haha): Why not spread the world and share […]
