A Mrs. Miracle Christmas by Debbie Macomber ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

I know some people don't think it is Christmas until they've read Debbie Macomber's latest Christmas novel. As someone who was on a waiting list until March for a previous Christmas book by her, I'm thrilled that I received an advance copy. This year she brings back the beloved character Mrs. Miracle and you don't want to miss it.

3 Books about Strong Women of WWII

by Susan Roberts

I read a lot of WWII fiction but I especially enjoy books that are about the strength of women during the war and the differences they made during this time.  For too many years, we've only heard stories about the brave men during the war so it's fantastic to read about women who were also very brave and got involved in dangerous situations to help their country.  All of my books today take place in France.

Death Beside the Seaside by T.E. Kinsey ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

Last year, I listened to the first book in the Lady Hardcastle Mysteries series, A Quiet Life in the Country, and I really enjoyed the characters. I have not continued with the series, but when I saw book 6 Death Beside the Seaside at NetGalley, I had to request it.

A Distance Too Grand by Regina Scott ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"Yet it was already August. They had at best two months, barely enough time for the survey, before snow began to fall along the North Rim. The Grand Canyon they called it and everything he'd read said searching for a way to ford it, by wagon, would be an adventure." (p 18)

4 Books of Folklore and Fairy Tales

by MK French

Fairy tales and folklore are short stories involving fantastic creatures that don't exist in nature, often teaching lessons to readers/listeners as the story progresses. Many of these stories are told and retold in different ways; many of the core themes in these stories actually date back thousands of years. Most of the time, fairy tales are considered stories we tell children, and that grown-ups don't need to listen to the stories themselves. They dismiss the warnings within the stories as silly things that only children would believe and feel that they don't apply to adults anymore. The wonder has gone out of those adults, which is a sad thing. There are still so many lessons that adults can learn from these stories, especially when they're reinterpreted for modern times.

Over the past weekend, I took my nephew to comic con, walked several miles of city sidewalk, ate in a few Irish pubs, and read City of Girls by Elizabeth Gilbert.
