Book Review: Serafina and the Twisted Staff (Serafina) by Robert Beatty

Book Review: Serafina and the Twisted Staff (Serafina) by Robert Beatty

Serafina and the Twisted Staff is the second book in author Robert Beatty’s Serafina series, about a mysterious young girl who secretly lived at the Biltmore Estate. The series is set back in time in 1899 in North Carolina, but this story has a timeless feel to it. In fact, I often forget that it’s a historical fiction […]

Book Review: Holiday Temptation by Donna Hill, Farrah Rochon, K.M. Jackson

The December book of the month for Mocha Girls Read was Holiday Temptation by Donna Hill, Farrah Rochon, and K. M. Jackson. This novel features three short love stories set during the Christmas holiday. Though each was different, I found them all to be predictable and the writing deteriorated from the first story to the last. Holiday Temptation did not tempt […]
