Book Review: Into the Crossfire by Cindy McDonald


Four years ago, police officer and former Navy SEAL Jack Haliday was undercover with a biker gang when his cover was blown. He got away, but so did the leader of the gang, Gunner. He's been waiting for Gunner to find him and exact his revenge ever since -- and he finally does. He rips Jack's family apart, and leaves Jack to pick up the pieces with his little girl, Lil.

Into the Crossfire by Cindy McDonald is a great thriller with an engaging storyline and interesting characters. It was a quick read and kept my attention throughout. The story follows Jack and his daughter, as well as the First Force team that cares for them and works with Jack to take down Gunner and his gang. But we also get to see the gang, mostly from the perspective of Gunner's girlfriend, so we get to see both sides of the story to some extent. This gives us the opportunity to get to know many unique characters.

I really enjoyed Into the Crossfire, particularly because of the characters. The storyline was complex enough to make it interesting, but also easy to follow. If you like thrillers that really focus on the characters, you should definitely check out Into the Crossfire. This is the first book in Cindy McDonald's new First Force series, and I will be looking forward to the next one.

My Rating: 5/5

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

Book Review: No Story to Tell by KJ Steele

Victoria has been put down since the day she was born. First by her parents who were disappointed that she survived while her twin brother died. Then by her verbally abusive husband and his low-life friends. But soon an intriguing artist named Elliott arrives in town and starts encouraging Victoria to follow her dream of opening her own dance studio. She also begins to receive phone calls from a mysterious someone who gets her to open up about her past and face her true feelings.

In No Story to Tell, KJ Steele has captured the small-town atmosphere and brought these characters to life. From the victimized Victoria, to her drunk and obnoxious husband Bobby and his drunk and obnoxious friends, to all the side characters who you'd expect to encounter in a town like this ~ all are so realistic in both their actions and their voices. She has written a compelling story of an abused woman who thinks she is trapped in this loveless, miserable existence. But then she finds a spark of hope…

Zoe is a typical working mother who takes the Underground through London to her office every day. Like most commuters, she has a routine that she follows every day, leaving home at the same time, sitting in the same train car, taking the same route to work from the station. It's habit. But she starts to realize this may not be a good idea after seeing her own photo in an advertisement in the newspaper. Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to ge…
