Personal Review of The Murderer's Maid by Erika Mailman

***Personal Review of The Murderer's  Maid by Erika Mailman***
I am a huge fan of historical fiction - and if you aren't sure what that is, basically it is a genre where the author weaves a fictional tale around historical events.  Such as this novel "The Murderer's Maid" by Erika Mailman.  She has done her homework on the Lizzie Borden case and the historical accuracy of the background and people are great.  I am kind of obsessed with the Lizzie Borden case myself, so when my friend asked if I wanted to read this and review it I didn't hesitate!  If you are not familiar with the Lizzie Borden case, then I would highly recommend you do a little research before reading this, because there are a lot of actual pieces from the case that pop up in the book.  Of course we all know Lizzie was not convicted of the crime but she was never considered innocent.  And Bridget, the maid in the Borden house at the time, most likely could have convicted Lizzie but she didn'…

Finding out you were wrong about something important can be a let down. But Poppy is pleased to learn she's not just a Monday. She's a Cusper, a weekday lucky enough to have TWO powers. Poppy's elation is short-lived when she, Ellie, Logan, and Sam return to Power Academy as camp counselors, only to find themselves out of their element and struggling with the new drama teacher and his disaster of a school musical. When some campers go missing, Poppy and her team of weekdays are on the case. Soon, Poppy begins to realize that much like her powers, the seemingly-perfect town of Nova has some flaws, and the origin of her powers is as questionable as Headmistress Clothes-too-tight Larriby's choice in outfits.If only there were more days in the week! Poppy Mayberry: Return To…

Being a werewolf is no picnic. Colin’s constantly hungry, spends a ton of time shaving, and fights to keep his emotions in check to avoid turning into a giant, drooling, hairy, smelly, howling wolf. But Colin's not the only creature hanging around the town of Elkwood. Vampires, zombies, goblins, ogres, and other questionable visitors and their various shenanigans have got everyone on edge. Colin just wants to live a normal life, date, and get his homework done on time. But the town of Elkwood needs him. So when a secret government organization asks for his help, will he be able to control the animal inside, or will he give in to the perils of growing up werewolf?
