Notebook and Pen

"Life itself is the most wonderful fairy tale"

- Hans Christian Andersen

"Holy book hangover! This debut by Madeline Vaughn is a book like no other. I devoured this book and could not put it down. I love that the main character Emily is a strong woman. I enjoyed the different point of views and the character development. This book is full of twists and turns! Just when you think you have it figured out Madeline hits you with the twist. I highly recommend this book and can not wait for more books by her."

"Death Before Dishonor was an absolute stunner. I went into the book blindly as this is the my first military thriller. I am a sucker for strong female leads and Emily is just the one you should read about for such tropes. the twists and turns are wonderfully set and there is some romance but the thriller part takes the front seat. This is a book you would fail to put down once you start. I cannot wait for the world to dive into Emily's world. I absolutely devoured this book and cannot wait for the next book of the series to come out." 
"Madeline’s writing enables the reader to immerse themselves in the story. I did not want to come up for air. Emily is a strong, capable FMC that isn’t going to stop until the mysteries surrounding her family are solved. This military thriller gives us so many twists, turns, romance and family drama that I could not stop reading. I had to know what happened next! This is an excellent start to a new series and I highly recommend!"
"Normally military books aren’t my thing, but I could tell off the synopsis and reviews that this was something I wanted to read and I’m so glad I did!
The book IMMEDIATELY pull you in and holds your attention throughout. The suspense was top tier and I didn’t want to put it down.
I read the first 5 chapters before bed and picked up back up and finished it the next day.
If you’re like me and don’t typically read military fiction I would strongly encourage you to give this one a try!
Love love love!"
"It's a win! She did it again, but this time, even better. I have been avoiding stress lately, so I've been all tucked into cozy mysteries and cozy rom-coms. I ventured back out to read this sequel to Death Before Dishonor. And honestly? I love Madeline's work. She's clearly passionate about her story development and the characters she creates, but has such a genuine personality as a creator that you can't help but cheer her on. I really enjoyed this sequel and can't wait for her to keep going with it, and whatever else, she decides to create. Five stars, easily."
"Madeline Vaughn has done it again in her second book of the Emily Fallon trilogy, “Storm From Within.” Emily is in danger as she searches for answers to who gave the order to kill her dad and brother. This novel keeps you in suspense as she begins to unravel secrets about the Navy and the greed of those with power. Madeline is an author that is captivating and has you wanting to read more."
"The chokehold this series has on me is ridiculous. I feel like the characters are my own friends and family and feel every emotion they do right along side them

Madeline has such a way of bringing the story to life while keeping you at the edge of your seat.

This is the second book in the series and I think I somehow loved this one even more than the first book if that’s even possible. I cannot wait for book 3!

Do yourself a favor and read these books NOW! You won’t regret it!"
