Bloom
The Order Series 1
by Nikki Rae
Genre: Adult Dark Contemporary Romance
Given to The Grimm Order as an infant, Fawn was raised in a world shaped by
the rich and powerful. When she was sold at the age of nine to a
Suitor, Fawn believed he would protect her from the “Mainworld”,
where those who know nothing about the Order live. Living with the
cruel man who bought her freedom, she finds just what the Order is
about: money, control, and status for the Owner and humiliation and
abuse for those they own.
Unwilling to accept the expectations of being Owned, Fawn goes from golden girl
to maid, content to live in the shadows of the Order as long as she
isn’t Owned again.
It’s been ten years since she disgraced her former Owner’s name, and now
the brooding Frenchman Elliot Lyon wants her. Master Lyon is kind,
smart, and unlike any man she’s met. She doesn’t want to admit it
to herself, but Fawn is drawn to him despite constantly planning her
next escape.
Even the prettiest flowers have thorns, and Master Lyon is hiding secrets
that will uproot everything she thinks she knows about him.
Nikki Rae is an independent author who lives in New Jersey. She explores
human nature through fiction, concentrating on making the imaginary

Andorra Pett and the Oort Cloud Café by Richard Dee

Meet Andorra Pett; with her trusty sidekick, she’s taken over a derelict café. On a mining station. It just happens to be orbiting Saturn!

She’s hoping for a fresh start, away from all the drama of her old life. It’s a chance to relax and start again in a place where nobody knows anything about her or her past.

But the café holds a secret, and secrets have a habit of coming out; whether you want them to or not. And being accident prone doesn’t help. The more you try to pretend that you know what’s going on, the worse it gets.

Andorra’s plans for peace and quiet get lost amid the revelations and skulduggery and she soon realises that the fate of the whole station lies in her hapless hands.
In space, you can still trip over your feet; the question is, will you land upright?

A native of Brixham in Devon, Richard Dee’s family left Devon when he was in his teens and settled in Kent. Leaving school at 16 he briefly worked in a supermarket, then went to sea and travelled the world in the Merchant Navy, qualifying as a Master Mariner in 1986. Coming ashore to be with his growing family, he used his sea-going knowledge in several jobs, including Marine Insurance Surveyor and Dockmaster at Tilbury, before becoming a Port Control Officer in Sheerness and then at the Thames Barrier in Woolwich. In 1994 he was head-hunted and offered a job as a Thames Estuary Pilot. In 1999 he transferred to the Thames River Pilots, where he regularly took vessels of all sizes through the Thames Barrier and upriver as far as H.M.S. Belfast and through Tower Bridge. In all, he piloted over 3,500 vessels in a 22-year career with the Port of London Authority. Richard was offered part time working in 2010, which allowed him to return to live in Brixham, where he took up writing and blogging. He retired in 2015, when he set up and ran a successful Organic bakery, supplying local shops and cafés.

My Review

5 stars

Andorra Pett and her friend Cyril have packed everything up and decided to take over the abandoned restaurant Oort Cloud Café. But when they start cleaning everything they discover the missing prior owner in the freezer. But it seems their happy little café is going to be quite busy. It seems a local mob boss, that has a restaurant across from Andi and Cy. He is determined to be in control of everything, especially a little black book that the former café owner was supposed to have. It’s up to Andi and Cy to solve the murder mystery on their new space station home.

I loved this book. It has a great setting that is well described and be a viable location. It is clearly well thought out. And the mystery. I love cozy mysteries and this is a great one with a fresh twist. Andi and Cy were a great pair and worked well together. I loved the twists and turns through the story. I was kept on the edge of my seat with who did it.

This is a great new story that is well written and very engaging. I can’t wait to read the next book about Andorra Pett.

I received Andorra Pett and the Oort Cloud Café from Rachel’s Random Resources for free. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
