Blog Tour Stop: Black Madonna: The Pope’s Deadly Obsession by L. Lee Kane

What do you get when you cross The DaVinci Code and The Knight’s Templar? Black Madonna by L. Lee Kane

Synopsis

Luci de Foix was nine when her parents were killed in a car accident. But was it an accident? Unbeknownst to Luci, a group known as The Order, under the protection of the Pope, has been watching her family for many years, waiting fo the day that a diary written in the thirteenth century would be delivered to her family – a journal that contains a key to a lost codex – and they would do anything to get it. Early one morning, when Luci is twenty-nine, a bloodied young man delivers a book, claiming it’s from her late grandparents.

Plagued by panic attacks that have left her crippled, Luci struggles to overcome her fears, avenge the death of her family, and search for the lost codex. But who can she trust? Everyone seems intent on betraying her, even the gorgeous, enigmatic Max, a man with secrets of his own.

You should know by now that I love anything with drama and adventure, with some mystery and suspense mixed in. I truly enjoyed reading Black Madonna as it introduces you to the main character, Luci, as a child, and how she became who she in the present. It introduces you to characters from her childhood, and how everyone is linked today.

I just love how the book is written. Not too much detail, but it still gives you that feeling of being there, like you are a fly on the wall.

I give Black Madonna 5 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ for the story, the atmosphere it presents, and the fact that it held my attention in this hard time that I have been through the last couple of weeks. I enjoyed it, and I recommend to you.

Blog Tour Stop: The Beginner’s Guide to Winning an Election by Michael R. French

I don’t really read anything to do with politics, but this book was quiet interesting. A high school student who is accused of hacking an election against a boy who is running (which she was on his team), decides to fight back by running against him.

Synopsis

In 2025, the “youthification” of democracy has inspired younger candidates to challenge the ineffective and hypocritical gray-hairs in Congress. Running for student body president at an Indiana high school, political novice Brit Kitridge takes on incumbent Matthew Boltanski, who, with help from a mystery backer, already has his eyes on Washington. Brit gains courage and insights from a wise history teacher on how to win, but ultimately finds a maze of deceit and corruption in her school. Is exposing the truth enough to win the election?

I love any book with a girl who is a bad***, who has no fear, and will stand up for what they believe in. This book definitely showed this with Brit. She was kicked out of a running team because she was accused of hacking, runs against the popular boy in school for revenge, and finds deep, dark secrets of both the boy and his friend.

But, the more I read it, the more I started seeing today’s problem. I don’t really like anything politics, so I kept it in my mind that this is a book for the young adult, and to inspire girls to be strong, and to stand up for what they believe in, and no one can tell them they cannot do it.

I give the book five stars. Because I was a teenager (long ago), and I am raising my little to be a strong and independent woman. This is definitely the book for the girls who strive to be the best.
