DONA PENZA TATTLE, ESQ.
ASSOCIATE WRYE BALDERDASH
Wrye is startled by the flying apple aimed at him. “Catch!” Tattle says. “This is a perfect month for making apple pies and celebrating a new Champagne Books Group review."
Nabbing the apple from the air as if it's a football, he sneezes as if allergic. "Don’t we need more than one for baking?”
"We’re stopping at the bakery for the pie. That’s just for a snack during our Love of Literature Leap Review!”
He shrugs and quips, “How do you make an apple turnover?”
“Push it downhill.”
He hoots at his lame joke as they take off.
COUP DE GRACE (Book 6) by Misa Buckley, a sci-fi romantic novella.
When Grace awakens after being injected with nasty serums from the malevolent Doctor Smith, her first thought is for her lover, Benedict. He is right there and they are immediately immersed in another adventure. Doctor Smith is once again implementing a sinister plot. This time by injecting the rain water with Precipityon, which will kill sixty percent of the world population, and this was just a test! Rather than using his brilliance to cure cancer, which would be too late to help him which is slowly killing him, he prefers to leave a legacy of devastation.
Along with her team and their psychic link as well as her super powers, Grace is determined to stop Doctor Smith and his minions. She knows she can't manage anything without her peers, but especially not without Benedict, her soul mate. Still, setting the sky on fire does seem a bit extreme. Will it work?
"This novella is a thrill ride from start to finish." Wyre acts as if he is soaring on a roller coaster. "I can barely catch my breath. You can't help but read the novella in one sitting, and although it is part of a series, it is easy to read as a standalone. Of course, it does make you want to read the previous books. The characters are engaging and the plotline is exciting. Misa Buckley has a no-nonsense way of writing. It is crisp, clean and mesmerizing. Can't wait for the next installment."
Tattle fans herself. "Whooeee! Indeed that was an adventure. I am enthralled by Benedict, the perfect hottie while Grace is the quintessential heroine, strong, untamable and brave. Despite being a novella, the characters are well-developed and the storyline has nice depth. I especially like that I am able to have a quick escapade in a short amount of time. Can't wait to read the previous installments and get to know all the characters more intimately. Misa Buckley is a writer worth following. I totally enjoyed her story."
As an aside, we apologize for being gone for a few months, but we’re back and ready to gobble up more CBG books.
Until next time, keep reading!
