Please note. I very rarely give 5 stars.
Arthur Mace Medieval Gumshoe by James Husum – 4 stars
Title does what it says on the tin. Think of a cross between Terry Pratchett and Dashiell Hammett. Arthur is grabbed by a couple of ogres coming out of his favourite drinking hole. They take him to their boss who gives him a commission. Impossible it seems, but failure isn’t an option, either for Arthur, or his home town. He only has three days to save himself and the town. A good tale, well told and a fun read. I look forward to the next story in the series. At least I hope there will be one.
Blizzard at three bears lake by Rachel Kovaciny – 4 stars
A good short read. A mixture of a Western and a reimagining of The Three Bears fairy tale. At the beginning, Mary Rose goes exploring in the nearby mountains. The snow starts to fall. Will she be trapped, or will she find shelter? This is the second in the series. The first was a re-imagining of Red Riding Hood. I have not read the first one, but it is not necessary in order to enjoy this story. At the time of writing, this is free on Amazon (UK and US).
