Title: The Dinosaur Four
Author: Geoff Jones
Published: May 25th, 2014
Description: Business is brisk at the Daily Edition Cafe as Tim MacGregor arrives to meet his new girlfriend. Two joggers enjoy a hit of caffeine before work. A delivery man takes a break from his route. Behind the counter, the baristas are busy brewing, frothing, and pouring.
But on this morning, the cafe and the people inside are suddenly transported millions of years into the past.
Ten strangers find themselves in the world of Triceratops horridus and Tyrannosaurus rex. Three survivors compete for leadership of the group, while another plots to keep them all in the past. Tim only wants to find out what caused the disaster and how to get home.
THE DINOSAUR FOUR is a fast-paced action-adventure mixed with carnage and suspense in the tradition of JAWS, THE MIST, and JURASSIC PARK.

When I received this book review request in my inbox, I was a little hesitant about reading it. One reason was that the author described it to me as a ‘Stephen King-style sci-fi thriller’, sorry that’s an immediate red-flag for me, I’m an SK purist, and no one can do his ‘style’. My second concern was the book blurb on Amazon, it just didn’t grab my attention. However, I plowed forward with it, and this is how it went: From the very beginning until I reached the end, I was hooked! The only reason it took me a day and half to read it was because of those pesky things called sleep and work, otherwise, I would not have put the book down. The plot, characters and scenes are vivid and extremely well developed. This is quite possibly the best book I’ve read in a long time. Would I call it Stephen King-style? NO – I think Geoff Jones has a unique style all his own and I hope he continues to produce more fabulous books of this caliber.

Review by Margaret Miller via Book Explosions
Grace deHaviland, a bounty hunter in pursuit of a white-collar bail jumper, finds herself entwined in a complicated mess full of mystery and intrigue. What should be a slam-dunk catch for Grace turns into a dangerous pursuit of a man that desperately wants to protect his family and escape his past, and he’ll do anything to achieve that, including kill if necessary. There are quite a few twists and turns that keep you reading late into the night. The characters are vibrant and well thought out, as is the story itself. Although there were quite a few typos that were a bit distracting (nothing a good proof-reader couldn't resolve), the pace was everything I look for in a good thriller/suspense story and definitely leaves me wanting more!

I was provided a free copy of Dragonfly door in exchange for an honest review.
Dragonfly door is an exciting story about time-travel. We all know how difficult it can be to write a believable and easy-to-follow book dealing with a plot as complex as time travel. If done incorrectly it becomes hard to understand, boring and usually lose the reader in the first chapter. On the other-hand, when done properly stories of this nature push the reader into a world of endless possibilities that engages them page after page. I believe that Margaret Millmore did a fabulous job with Dragonfly Door.
What I Liked?
The characters were easy to like.
Stories with elements of magic are always a favorite of mine. Without giving away the plot; the dragonflies are a doorway to the future and the past.
It's one of those books that will stay with you forever. And that's what we look for in great story-telling isn't it? To find that story that leaves such a huge impact on your life long after you've closed the book, and have it still haunt you...
The only thing that bugged me, which is just a matter of personal preference were the different points-of-view. Other than that, it was an excellent novel from Margaret. I've read a few of her other books and have not been disappointed by this author. Time-travel enthusiasts need to get a copy of this book. You won't be disappointed either.
