Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 236 - Binti by Nnedi Okorafor, Murder Will Speak by Penny Richards

Binti (Binti, #1)Binti by Nnedi Okorafor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Binti is an interesting novella. It starts out as one thing as Binti leaves home and travels to Oomza University. Binti's people do not travel and she was expected to turn down the opportunity to go after she was accepted. Then the story changes as Binti is the only survivor of an attack by the Meduse. A lot in incorporated in this 90 page novella. There is danger, tension, and changes as Binti works to stay alive and bring peace where there was none.

Murder Will Speak (Lilly Long #3)Murder Will Speak by Penny Richards
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lilly Long is on her third assignment for the Pinkerton Detective Agency. This one is personal. She is answering a plea from a friend who is in great danger. The Hells Half-Acre in Fort Worth is a very dangerous place. The danger here is very real. Again Cade McShane is her partner. There is a lot more backstory about Cade and we meet his sister who helps on this case and some of his other siblings. This case pulls at the heart strings as they work to change a place that is full of corruption . At the end of the case Lilly is having second thoughts about being a detective while Cade is getting more and more comfortable being her partner.

I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.
