"Jack and Djinn" Book Review

Ok, so I know the books I usually review are Cookbooks, but I have to tell you about this awesome book!  "Jack and Djinn" is the first to be released in a trilogy called 'The Houri Legends' by Amber Sweetapple (who happens to be a very good friend of mine, by the way!)  It's a romantic suspense with a bit of a "paranormal" twist.

I have to tell you, I'm not usually a fan of the sci-fi, fantasy or paranormal genre, but this book?  This was a game changer for me.  I absolutely LOVED it!  I couldn't put it down.  It kept drawing me in, further and further!  LOVE when a book does that!

I honestly do not have free time on my hands.  Between my job, my kids, my husband, my housely duties and this blog, I don't really have much "extra time."  Somehow, I managed to read this book in 3 days!  It normally takes me at least 3 months to finish a book due to the amount of time I actually have to read!  LOL  This was so good, I miraculously made it a priority!

This book was uniquely written.  It flips back and forth between 2 detectives investigating a murder at the MGM Grand Casino in Michigan and then goes into the events leading up the murder.  Back and forth the story goes, piecing things together slowly, answering questions, creating questions, drawing a picture, arousing suspense!

Ms. Sweetapple's descriptiveness is incredible! The "paranormal" side of the book is extremely well done and is remarkably believable.  The characters? You will love Miriam and Jack. You will hate Ben, but you're supposed too.  Actually, you will hate him with a passion.......and that's ok!  LOL

I absolutely LOVED this book, and I think you will too!  If you own a Kindle, you can buy your copy here.  If you don't own a Kindle, but have a SMART phone, you can download the Kindle App for free and read it there (that's what I do!)  If you're into "real" copies, it will be available on soon, so keep an eye out for it!

You can watch the book trailer here!

    Mitch Albom is my fav. author.

  4. I am anticipating the next in the series Djinn and Tonic. It will be drawing in more characters and sounds like it is building towards something bigger in a later book. I don't want to say anymore because I will end up giving the book away and I hate doing that. I hope I haven't given to much already with my gushing.
