For DANGEROUS TALENTS:
As I’ve posted before, I’ve been reading a lot of Indie fiction – yet maybe you’ve been wondering why there aren’t many reviews posted on my site…well, I’m not recommending anything that I’m not absolutely in love with – and I love, love, love Frankie Robertson’s book Dangerous Talents. The story unfolds quickly with an incident that changes Celia’s (our heroine’s) life. From the get-go, the story unwinds with believable, interesting characters that you will both recognize and find strangely unfamiliar. Woven throughout this tale is Norse Mythology and Legend (I’m not telling you how, you’ll have to read it to find out) and it’s masterfully done with well written dialogue and artfully crafted scenes that let you glimpse the inner lives of the characters. The motives are clear, the scenes fluid, and all of the loose ends are neatly tied up in nice little packages with pretty ribbons that leave you completely satisfied and gratified. I highly recommend this book for a wide variety of reasons – memorable characters, a strong plot, nice blend of myths/legends and contemporary characters and (naturally) a liberal dose of magic and a villain that keeps you on the edge. LOVED it – and will definitely read the next book Forbidden Talents – as soon as I read the other books that are on my kindle!
4 of 5 stars
I’ve always loved books that deal with angels, demons and good vs. evil. This book seemed to promise all that and more from its description and I have to say it didn’t disappoint.

For VEILED MIRROR:
From Siren Book Reviews:
(Siren’s Best Book Stone) by Nikki
“From the get-go, Veiled Mirror grabbed my attention. With plenty of suspense, and a small touch of paranormal, this is one of the best romantic suspense books I’ve read in a long time. There’s deceit, murder, lies…I was left guessing the whole way through. I worried for Beth, cried for her family that died, and was at the edge of my seat, hanging on to every word because I never knew what to expect next.
Frankie Robertson is a new-to-me author, and from my journey with this book, I will be keeping an eye out for more. The characters are so well created, the tension is high and it never wavers. I stayed up late into the night-hours to finish this book. I read it in one sitting, not wanting to miss a thing, yet I didn’t want it to end either.
Kudos to you, Frankie Robertson. You’ve created an amazing suspenseful story. Readers, if you’re a romantic suspense fan, add this book to your list right away.”
(4 hearts) by Stacey :
“Veiled Mirror was a surprisingly wonderful story. The blurb interested me, but it didn’t even hint at how well the story would capture the reader’s attention. Frankie Robertson does a fantastic job of getting the readers attention early and not letting go until the end. She gives us just enough detail to keep us going but not so much that you just skim through parts.
Veiled Mirror is a story about family and love. The mayhem that accompanies it is a definite bonus. I would recommend Veiled Mirror if you like romantic suspense stories with a few plot twists and a friendly ghost to help things along.”
