I loved Peckerwood Twist by Nathan Lichtwar. This title has a phenomenal plot with an amazing and unexpecting ending. Is it true or is it not? You will have to read this book to find out!
Sam Paris is a Vietnam War Veteran, a drunk, and a patron at a local bar called Peckerwood. Not much unusual happens at the Peckerwood, so when new faces appear, they are hard to go unnoticed.
Harry and his gorgeous wife walk into Peckerwood demanding to receive a case of the famous Peckerwood Hot Sauce. Turning heads with their every step, they walk to the end of the bar where Sam happens to be sitting. Coincidence? It turns out Harry is a journalist looking for a new hot story, and he's willing to compensate well for it. Sam, who's a little down on his luck, (or isn't he?), agrees to give Harry a story as long as he keeps the beers coming.
As Harry and Sam move to a private table, while Harry's wife amuses the other patrons, Sam starts his story about his Amazon adventure.
Follow Sam through small towns, raging rivers, being hunted, and dense jungle as he tells his tale of how he met a beautiful woman named Ursula, how he became a man of interest, and his struggle to survive the jungle of the Amazon.
Lichtwar did an excellent job in Peckerwood Twist! Throwing in some great humor with constantly guessing what is a reality and what is not, this title has enough adventure and mystery to keep you anxious to turn the pages!
This is one title I would love to see become a movie and I hope to see more of Nathan Lichtwar. I highly recommend Peckerwood Twist giving it ***** (5) Stars

L.A. Boneyard by P.A. Brown is absolutely astounding! If you're a murder and mystery fan you are surely going to love this book! Captivating from start to finish, it's a must read!
David Eric Laine is a homicide detective of the Northeast Community Police Department in Los Angeles. When two bodies turn up in a local park, Detective Laine begins his pursuit to find the killer, with his new homicide partner Jairo Hernandez.
With no clues as to who these women are, and a new partner, this case proves to bring chaos into David's life. As the investigation pursues, his partner shows increased interest, more than in just the case at hand.
When a third murder almost kills David's life partner, Chris, Chris is sent away on business. In the days of Chris's absence, Jairo becomes more persistent in his advances. David struggles with his morality and desires, trying to maintain professional boundaries while trying to solve these murders.
Trying to keep the investigation the main focus, the only clue into these deaths are dental work and tattoos all the deceased possess. When they narrow down there search to claim identities, they uncover a smuggling and prostitution ring with a surprising twist.
L.A. Boneyard is phenomenal! Full of suspense, murder, mystery and even explicit sex, Brown left nothing out! What more could you ask for in one book? I strongly recommend this book and I believe Brown could possibly be the next J.D. Robb. I think we can expect to see much more from P.A. Brown. I loved this read and I give L.A. Boneyard *****1/2 (5.5) Stars~BK Walker from BK Walker Books, Author of "Near Suicide" and "Dares And Dreams". http://bkwalkerbooks.weebly.com

The Gorilla - we all get annoyed with DMV's. If only there was a way to simply mess up their days as well. ~Humorous!

Twelve Years - dead end jobs and seemingly slave drivers. ~Makes you wonder how people do it. Very relatable.
Eight Minutes - sometimes on the job it's best to just do what needs to be done and appease people. ~Funny!
If Shakespeare Were Alive Today - when you get fed up and just don't care, that's when you finally get a break. ~Awesome!
The Raisin - road rage at an extreme. ~Fabulous!
The Glitter Queen - cold weather, irrate co-workers and viewing things out of the ordinary. ~Wow!
Leroy - drinking, a disgruntled deer, a hunter's prize and leaving a legacy. ~Unique!
I Met A Writer - from one writers way of thinking to another. ~Splendid!
The Man In The Orange Suit - mental illness is sometimes inspiring. ~Excellent!
The IFPA - scam emails leave one individual unknowingly breaking the law. ~Stupendous!

Review by BK Walker: Ghost Orchid by D.K. Christi is brilliant! Christi does a phenomenal detail bringing two love stories full circle to one extraordinary outcome.
The Ghost Orchid is an endangered and rarely seen flower. There has been a sighting of one in a swamp found in the Florida Everglades. Christi has created an amazing plot as we watch how two separate love stories intertwine and the Ghost Orchid's magic brings them both to an unexpecting connection and meaningful conclusion.
In search of the 'one' great capture on film, Roger Andrew and Neev are brought together on assignment for National Geographic. In the jungle of South Africa, they find adventure and passion. While their love grows no farther than the assignment they are on, a deeply profound and true friendship does.
Neev, never knowing her real family, searches to resolve anger and the empty hole in her soul. Roger stands by her as a true friend should and as we see the other love story of Mel and Jack unfold, Neev is led to the answers she so desperately seeks.
Ghost Orchid is a must read. I can't say enough about this title. Christi's style will definitely leave you feeling the magic. I give it ***** (5) Stars, ~BK Walker - Author/Reviewer of BK Walker Books, http://bkwalkerbooks.weebly.com.
