TR Cameron, Martha Carr, Michael Anderle
Urban Fantasy Action Adventure
LMBPN Publishing; 1st edition
(17 Jun. 2020)
Kindle
1934

FBI Agent Diana Sheen is an agent with a secret…

…she carries a badge and a troll, along with a little magic.

But her Most Wanted List is going to take a little extra effort.

She’ll have to embrace her powers and up her game to take down new threats,

Not to mention deal with the troll that’s adopted her.

All signs point to a serious threat lurking just beyond sight, pulling the strings to put the forces of good in harm’s way.

Magic or mundane, you break the law, and Diana’s gonna find you, tag you and bring you in. Watch out magical baddies, this agent can level the playing field.

It’s all in a day’s work for the newest Federal Agent of Magic.

FAM stands for Federal Agents of Magic

This is an 8 book box set series available on KU with 3 authors: TR Cameron, Martha Carr, Michael Anderle, and is set in the Oriceran Universe.

Now I’ve read most of the books in the Oriceran Universe series. And they’re all beautifully written. The various authors that contribute are well chosen and write a good storyline. All the are urban fantasy, action and adventure based and this series is crime and police based stories. except the criminals and the police are rather unusual.

If you haven’t come across the Oriceran Universe, here is a quick summary.

Magic has returned to the world along with all various creatures large and small that come with the tales. It is a fantasy world with fan fiction and exists from some time around now – to far in the future – so don’t worry – it hasn’t happened yet! But you can imagine it had and contribute your own ideas as to if it did what might happen and who might populate this universe.

Book 1 : Magic Ops

FBI Agent Diana Sheen is rather unusual in that along with her badge she has some magic and a troll who has adopted her.

Book 2 : Agents of Mayhem

Diana and her team are disguised as Bounty hunters cleaning up the streets.

Book 3 : Counter Ops

The conspiracy is bigger than Diana ever realised but Kayleigh is helping improving FAM’s gear.

Book 4 : Agents of Chaos

The bad guys are planning something big and targeting Diana.

Book 5 : Covert Ops

The enemy are using a dire magical artifact.

Book 6 : Agents of Order

There are more players on Diana’s opposition than she realises.

Book 7 : Arcane Ops

The bad guys are stealing from the Police.

Book 8 : Agents of Vengeance

Time to take down the Bosses as the locals have been defeated.

Dust up: A Book Review

Witch Dust: A Paranormal Comedy Book Cover Witch Dust: A Paranormal Comedy
Thriller Witch Series Book 1
Marilyn Messik
Mystery & Thrillers, Women's Fiction
BooksGoSocial
Pub Date 12 Jan 2020

For Sandra, daughter of illusionists, Adam and Ophelia, life’s never been run of the mill! But when Adam’s wandering eye lights on yet another conquest, Sandra’s caught in the reverberations of her parents acrimonious parting. Coerced into restoring her depressed Mother to the bosom of a family Sandra never knew existed, she’s sucked into a situation that even for her is unnerving.

From being without a single relative, she suddenly acquires several she’d rather do without. Ophelia, it appears, has not been entirely honest about any number of things. There’s no doubt in Sandra’s mind, the sooner she puts as much distance as possible between herself, the newly discovered nearest and dearest with their peculiar tendencies and failing hotel business, the happier she’s going to b. 

There are just a few things to sort first including a possessed chef; a hanged housemaid; a fly-on-the-wall documentary and a doppelgänger. Things slide swiftly from bad to farce and then get a hell of a lot darker. One minute she’s saving the family business the next, battling to save their lives. Turns out, some darknesses, once buried, are best left undisturbed.

Complicated fun and bizarre plot elements give a nicely humorous storyline for this witch-based story. Starting with initial paragraph where her mother transports into her living room with her luggage, a cat, and a brown envelope, and announces that she has just killed her husband – our narrator’s father!

Of course, this turns out not be as literal as it could have been.

Ma and Pa were 2 halves of a Magic Act – which of course was more magical than they let on. They had been together for many years touring and bringing baby along too – both were beautiful, glamourise and natural show business actors. They had a manager named Murray who did most of the actual child rearing for Serenissima (AKA Sandra) our narrator. Who much preferred to be living outside of the chaotic life of her parents.

And then Pa has a mid-life crisis and decides that Ma is getting too old for the act and he would prefer a younger partner. Which is of course the start of the shenanigans that occur, especially around the knives! And the ghosts and….

Fun and light with a show business element.

Off to the seaside! Book Review.

Meet Me at Pebble Beach Book Cover Meet Me at Pebble Beach
Bella Osborne
Fiction, Women's fiction
HarperCollins UK, Avon
May 28, 2020
416

Meet Me at Pebble Beach was originally published as a four-part serial. This is the complete story in one package. Regan is holding a winning lottery ticket. Goodbye to the boyfriend who never had her back, and so long to the job she can’t stand! Except it’s all a bit too good to be true… When Regan gets pranked, she finds herself jobless, homeless and boyfriendless in one fell swoop. Luckily her friendly seaside community provides a beacon of hope, proving to Regan that sometimes you really can rely on the kindness of others – and one local in particular, a handsome fireman called Charlie, helps Regan realise that this could be her chance for a fresh start. Armed with a list of ways to change her life, Regan decides it’s time to step out of her comfort zone. Because – as Charlie knows all too well – life is for living . . . A feel-good summer read, perfect for fans of Jill Mansell, Veronica Henry and Cressida McLaughlin.

This was an interesting story in that i thought it could have been better. The concept was good but the proof of concept needed improvement.

There was more opportunity for humour than was used, and the starting chapters were rather dull and lacking in originality. The later chapters improved but her final solution was not, for me, fully realised and believable. an almost story. I am giving it 3 stars because for some people it will appeal.
