Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 239 - Reborn by Lance Erick, Luck of the Bride by Janna MacGregor

Reborn (Android Chronicles #1)Reborn by Lance Erlick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It takes a long time to get to the conclusion. In fact it takes a lot of replay as Synthia Cross is reborn each time her maker turns her off and wipes her memories. It is a little like Groundhog Day as she slowly hides and requires her past. I did find that part a little repetitive. I liked Synthia and how she worked to find a way to be herself and have a set of values that protected her and caused no harm to others. She was in a lot of danger and she was good a splitting hairs but in the end she managed to make a future she wanted. There were several surprises that defined how she was created. A very original concept that is just the first in the Android Chronicles.

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

The Luck of the Bride (The Cavensham Heiresses #3)The Luck of the Bride by Janna MacGregor
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a three because I really did not like Michael Cavensham, the Marquess of McCalpin. He ignored Marsh and her sisters causing Marsh to struggle to make ends meet. He finally does the right thing only to crash and burn when March is accused of crimes against McCalpin. He was just not that great a hero. On the other hand I did like Marsh. She worked hard to keep her family together and to always put them first. The romance was second behind the crimes . It sounded like a better story in the blurb. Of course, in the end though there was a HEA even if I though Michael did not deserve one.
