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: The Hunter by Jennifer Herrera

The Hunter by Jennifer Herrera opens with NYPD Detective Leigh O'Donnell going back to her hometown of Copper Falls, Ohio to investigate three suspicious drownings in her hometown in hopes that it will help get her career back on track in New York City.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and G.P. Putnam's Sons for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of The Hunter by Jennifer Herrera. I was thrilled and honored to be one of the people chosen to review this book before publication.

At first, I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy The Hunter because it was a bit slow. However, after a few chapters, the pace of the storyline picked up, which made it hard for me to put down the book. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the twists and turns along with the red herrings.  One thing is for sure, I didn't see the ending coming, and that says a lot since I read a ton of books in the mystery, thriller, suspense, and horror genres.

The main character of Leigh was written well and is very relatable.  Her daughter was adorable.  Leigh's uncles were not very likable at first, but then, they grew on me, and I got to see how loving they turned out to be.  I had mixed feelings about Leigh's brother and soon to be ex-husband.  Other than that, I found most of the characters to be unlikable, but that's not a negative thing because there are always characters that the reader won't like.

Four out of five stars is what I gave The Hunter by Jennifer Herrera, and I hope that there is a sequel.  If you like mysteries, thrillers, and suspense, then I highly recommend you read this book . . . you won't be disappointed.
