Ahoy mates! Calling all Swashbucklers, pirates, and those who love High Sea adventures. Karen Perkins has penned a unique series.
You'll sail from the colonial Massachusetts Bay to the Caribbean along with Gabriella Berryngton. A fourteen year old seeks a release from her depressed home-life. Thinking being sold in a marriage arrangement by her father would be an answer to her prayers she sail away to her unknown groom...
She discovered marriage is not the bed of roses she expected. And so the saga begins...
In Look Sharpe:
You will pick up with the story of Lord Henry Rowleston. The Lord faces his reality on his father's deathbed. He faces financial ruin. He hopes a journey to his uncle in the Caribbean is the answer to his problem. Ah alas, they are not. Now under the name Henry Sharpe he learns that his uncle isn't his salvation. But, maybe his damnation instead.
Karen Perkins has down a bang up job with her characters. She also has brought to life the realities that might have been, so many years ago aboard a sailing ship that hunted and plundered. She uses the first person narrative well. Each book in the series has it's own original feel.
Lovers of the historical high seas and it's ships or just an island lover you might just want to try one of her books in the “ The Valkyrie Series”

Lesson Learned... ‟Never judge a book by it’s cover or title. I saw this book as it did the rounds on the internet. My first impression was it’s about a childhood fable. WRONG.
‟Wheezer and the Painted Frog” by Kitty Sutton is for anyone with a heart.
Sometimes we need to be reminded of the many people who’s lives were or are full of suffering and heartache. Kitty will do that, so gently you’ll flip through the pages one after another with true earnest to see what happens next.
The story might be told from a young person’s prospective and Wheezer the dog might be the hero but any similarity to a child’s tale stops there. A Drama and Murder mystery set at the end of the dark Trail of Tears march.
You will discover an emotional ride as she builds slowly to a story about loss of loved ones, the cruelty of greed, and the lengths people will go to accomplish and hide such facts.
Kitty Sutton does this as we face our country’s own history during a dark time for those affected by it and those who ignored its happening. She weaves the historic elements to perfection. She made me wonder if her fictional parts were closer to the truth than recorded history. Not to be ignored there’s a touch of romance and a smidgen of justice for some.
Reading ‟Wheezer and the Painted Frog” will be time well spent.
Excuse me while I go read, ‟Wheezer and the Shy Coyote.”
PS. I tried to come up with a different cover shot or title: funny nothing else works better than the way Ms. Sutton has done it.
Here's the purchase links for both books.
