Virtues and Valor

I just finished reading the Virtues and Valor Series by Halle Bridgeman.  In this series, Seven valorous women — different nationalities, ethnicities, and social backgrounds — come together as a team called the Virtues.

As many of you know, I’m not a huge fan of fiction, however I am a fan of Ms. Bridgeman.  And after reading this series, I continue.  This is a do not miss.

I will be posting 7 different review links (my review’s on Amazon) here for each of the 7 novella’s that make up this series.  To read each review, please click on the Amazon Link or scroll down the page to this page to read all of the reviews

If you are a fan of Historical Fiction, this is a must read.  If you are a fan of great writing, backed up by impeccable research, this is a must read.  But be forewarned…  if you are anything like me, you will loose a couple of days reading this series.  I couldn’t put it down! Continue reading

An Aria for Nick

As I’ve said many times before, I’m not a huge fan of fiction.  I find so much of it “full of fluff”.  However, once in a while an author comes along that challenges that.  This is the second novel that I’ve read by author, Halle Bridgemen and I am truly enjoying her work.  I look forward to reading more from her in the future.


An Aria for Nick (Song of Suspense #2)An Aria for Nick by Hallee Bridgeman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“The only man who can save her life has been dead for a decade. Raised in a loving home, Aria Suarez dreamed of becoming a professional pianist happily married to her high school crush. After the only boy who ever caught her eye dies a hero’s death and her wrist is shattered along with her future plans, she turns her brilliant musical mind to nuclear engineering and solving mysteries of science.

Abandoned to an abusive father at five, Nick Williams grew up dreaming of escape; of enlisting in the Army and leaving his wretched life behind; of proving himself worthy of the girl he loves. But the crucible of combat offers only the escape of death. A decade later, Aria uncovers a nuclear plot that threatens the heart of our very nation. Sinister forces surround and threaten her when, out of nowhere, the man who reportedly died so many years before returns as if from the grave — intent on protecting her.” Continue reading
