DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY by Jennifer Harlow

BOOK REVIEW

WITCH UPON A STAR by Jennifer Harlow

TO CATCH A VAMPIRE by Jennifer Harlow
Released: Sept. 8, 2012

BOOK REVIEW

MIND OVER MONSTERS by Jennifer Harlow

BOOK REVIEW

MIDNIGHT RIDER by Joan Hiatt Harlow
ANIMALS
Released: June 1, 2005

"What should be exciting history in this overlong narrative is harmed by weak characterization, expository information pedantically inserted into conversations, an improbable plot and an overall feeling of superficiality. (Historical fiction. 10-12)"

SHADOWS ON THE SEA by Joan Hiatt Harlow
CHILDREN'S
Released: Sept. 1, 2003

"Physical descriptions replete with references to 'honey-colored hair' and 'amber eyes' and a thoroughly tin ear for regional dialect complete the package, which ends up being a sort of mix between Nancy Drew and Murder, She Wrote. (Historical fiction. 9-13)"
A clunky thriller based on a landing of Nazi spies in Maine during WWII seems bent more on instruction than on thrills. Read full book review >
