I liked this book. It didn't wow me but it also didn't bore me either. I liked Jess as a main character and her interaction with the others through out. The story line had no major twists or terns but still giving you the desire to keep reading. The writing I thought was really good and this for me is more important than the story line its self. I liked the the authors narrative and dialogue style which made my reading experience very pleasant.

My sum up word: Fun   

Star rating *3

Third Eye P.I by Ravenna Young - Book Review

Read October 2015

I started to read 'Third Eye P.I' and the first page jumps into the mystery, then into Cassies life as a new private detective. I liked reading Cassie, she is a young sole who says what ever is on her mind, unfiltered. 'Third Eye P.I is filled with erotica, Mystery and physic powers which was a nice touch to the book. 'Third Eye P.I' follows Cassies through a though time in her life with the real life drama of men to chose from and confuse things. 

I enjoyed reading Ravenna Young's writing as it was easy to follow and well written. She has a lovely descriptive way to her writing and the Sex scenes are spot on. I liked the way she described Cassie's lady part, it has real shock factor that made me smile. Cassie is real and believable and marches to the beat of her own drum. And I look forward to reading the next book to find out what happens in Hawaii with Ben.

My sum up word: Punchy

Star rating *5

This is a book that is set in the mid 1950's and follows the lives of Ana and Sophia her daughter, through to the late 1990's. 

If you like a good love story then this is the book for you. Ana has a troubled start to love and you follow her through her pain and happiness. Then her daughter Sophia has her own trials and tribulation with love, but in a different way. 

I liked this story because it was a simple love story, or should I say, love stories, with normal and true to life drams. You also get an insight into the Greek way of life which was interesting for a non Greek person to read. 

Sum up word: Romantical
