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 Locked Door by Frieda McFadden

The Locked Door by Frieda McFadden opens with surgeon Nora Davis having an old fashioned by herself at the local bar when she reconnects with an ex-boyfriend, who just happens to be the bartender.  But soon after, Nora's patients are turning up dead, and it appears to be a copycat killing.  Who knows her secret?

A huge thank you goes out to NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of The Locked Door by Frieda McFadden.  McFadden had become one of my favorite authors, so when my request to read this book was approved, I was absolutely ecstatic.  I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

Wow!  This book kept me on the edge of my seat, and I couldn't wait to figure out who was the copycat killer.  I had it narrowed down to two different people, and it ended up not being either of the people I thought it might be.  When the killer was revealed, I was absolutely shocked!  

The main character, Nora Davis, was a bit hard to like, even though I know she was messed up from her childhood.  I liked her well enough, but one of my favorite characters ended up being the stray, black cat.  I was worried that the cat would be killed, and I am so glad that it survived.  I am a huge animal lover, especially when it comes to cats, so any kind of animal cruelty in books (and movies) really upsets me.

I absolutely loved The Locked Door despite it reminding me a bit of Rachel Caine's Stillhouse Lake.  There really isn't anything I can complain about in this book.  Five out of five stars is what I gave The Locked Door by Frieda McFadden.
