Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

Book Review: Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, #2) by Janet Evanovich

Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, #2) by Janet Evanovich is the second book in the Stephanie Plum book series. In this installment, Stephanie is given an easy case by her cousin Vinnie since she's still inexperienced . . . catch Joe Morelli's cousin, Kenny Mancuso. However, it won't be as simple as everyone thought because Morelli is also after Kenny.

Although I thought the sequel was a lot better than One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, #1), I still wasn't completely sold on the Stephanie Plum series, but the ending is what really made me want to keep reading the series and what made me bump up my rating. If you're looking for a serious, meaty mystery or thriller, this isn't the book for you. I consider it more of a light read, a beach read if you will, and I don't mean it in a bad way either. Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, #2) is a tad predictable, but it has its suspenseful moments and gives you a bit of humor and romance along the way.

Janet EvanovichBeing as this novel was published in 1996, there were a few things that made me feel a bit nostalgic. Stephanie Plum has an answering machine! Now, I realize there are a few souls out there that still have one, but they're not very common anymore. On top of that, she had a beeper. I never really understood why normal people needed to carry a beeper, especially when there were cell phones, which were often referred to as a car phone in the 90's. But, don't let any of this deter you from reading Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, #2).

Because I was so happy with the ending of the book, I gave Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, #2) by Janet Evanovich four out of five stars instead of three stars.
