HARMONY by Sienna Mynx

Description: When Harmony’s brother, a small-time bootlegger goes missing, the Harlem-Renaissance-era jazz singer turns to Sicilian mob boss, Vinnie Romano for help. Cue the epic romance.

The Good: This is going to be a pretty short review, because I really, really loved this novel. It’s a ton of story for your buck, and it reads fast. Most importantly, it fully displays Ms. Mynx’s growth as a writer. This is really epic storytelling, and Ms. Mynx has done some terrific character work with Harmony. She’s smart, sassy, and realistically conflicted. There are no two-dimensional characters in this novel, and even the side characters are rather fascinating.

The Bad: History buffs might thirst for even more Harlem Renaissance details.

The Naughty: Steamy. More sex than one might expect from a historical. Violence.

Editing issues: 3 typos found. Missing commas.

Publisher: The Diva’s Pen LLC (Indie)

Length: 236 pages

Final Grade: A

    I’ve read several of Sienna Mynx’s books and plan to add this to my kindle bookshelf. Theodora, I discovered you recently and read all three of your books in a span of a week and I’m aching for more. This site is my new IR mecca because for years I have looked for a place where new IR’s are listed and reviewed. Going through the Amazon IR list is cumbersome so I now will come to you for reviews. IR’s are my most favorite books and I’m glad more and more IR writers are coming to the forefront.

      I’m excited about the number of new IR writers, too. I’m a voracious reader, and it always feels like Christmas to discover a new author I like. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment. It’s really encouraging and I’m really glad you enjoyed the first three books. The fourth one will be out in early September.
