Synopsis:

7 short stories from the world of the weird and unusual.

Every four years we have to add another day to the calendar to make up for the time that we skip over while we carry on with our normal lives. So what happens on that abnormal day when the rules change and tab is a cash only sale?
Join us for a day while irony replaces currency and sanity takes a joyride through town. Have a smoke with the residents of the hospital and after dinner take a drive through the desert and a flight across the polar ice caps. Then wrap it all up with a cup of tea on a luxury ship.

I chose amnesia. If I had had any foresight into how my flippant choice would ruin him, I would have saved him th…

Janie's past trouble and sadness lurk back from the shadows. The beautiful life Janie has come to love takes a turn leading her right back to where she started in the clutches of the Petrilos.

My Review:

I received this book from the author herself to give an honest review.

I was sucked into this book right from the beginning. Reflection of Secrets picks up where the first book "Looking Through Blind Eyes" leaves off.  Now we follow the story of Janie going through depression while being a mother to Daniella. Also she is now back to living with Malachi. Danel her brother is very worried about her and wonders if living with Malachi is the best thing. He is very over protective and makes it know that Malachi shall not…

Looking Through Blind Eyes by Reyna Hawk

Image
Synopsis: 

Janie and Daniel wanted to escape the monotony of small town life in Louisiana, so they packed up and head for the City of Angels, Los Angeles, in search of opportunities. What this sister and brother find is organized crime and a dark path that leads to death, suspicion, lies, betrayal and love. Who will survive on the wrong side of a gun?

My Review:

I received this book from the author to give an honest review. I got it as an ebook not paperback.

Can you say Suspense!!
When I first started reading Looking Through Blind Eyes I knew it would be a good book, it started off with action at the first chapter. Now after that everything died down it went into the lives of Janie and Daniel.   
Daniel is very secretive about his work, and of course he doesn't tell his sister Janie about his work instead he keeps her in the dark. Daniel will always protect his sister, even when she meets and starts an on and off relationship with a man named Scott. Who is no good for her. 

Janie is one…
