Queen Bee by Dorothea Benton Frank @DorotheaFrank ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

I have been a fan of Dorothea Benton Frank since I read her first book twenty years. When you start her books you know that you'll be back in the Lowcountry of South Carolina with a bunch of quirky characters and a great plot that will make you want to pack your bags and head to the beach.

Something Like Gravity by Amber Smith ~ a Review

by MK French

Chris and Maia literally are brought together in a car crash, and can't seem to escape each others' orbits over the course of a summer. Each have their problems to cope with, which doesn't make that easier. Chris is transgender and had survived an assault he survived the year before. Maia is grieving the loss of her sister. Though they weren't expecting it, they do find themselves falling in love in the midst of grief.

Keep Your Kids Reading During the Summer

by Donna Huber

A local literacy organization that I support is committed to ending the "summer slide" by providing students in low-income areas with books that they take home at the end of the school year. Studies have shown that children can lose a grade-level or more in reading comprehension in what is known as "summer slide". However, reading every day can prevent this slide and can even improve a student's reading ability. (Learn more about Books for Keeps and how you can support them, too).

Good Buddy by Dori Ann Dupré ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

Jonathan “Buddy” Cordova is a small-time criminal defense lawyer living paycheck to paycheck and practicing law out of his house in Fayetteville, North Carolina. He likes to think of himself as a modern-day Atticus Finch, the kind of attorney who represents the poor, the indigent, the “probably guilty,” the kinds of clients who usually end up in jail. Shy, painfully awkward around pretty women, and carrying his own dark secret, Buddy falls for the daily jogger - Julie Saint, a part-time Kindergarten teacher and Army widow with a little girl named Molly.

Dear Scarlet: The Story of my Post Partum Depression by Teresa Wong ~ a Review

by MK French

Dear Scarlet is a memoir in graphic form, starting out as a letter to her daughter Scarlet. Teresa Wong outlined her thoughts and emotions with both words and pictures in this graphic novel, and we see glimpses into the reactions that her husband, mother, and friends all had in response to the depression, and then to finally getting a formal diagnosis of postpartum depression.

One Minute Later by Susan Lewis ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts
You think your life is perfect.
You think your secrets are safe.
You think it’ll always be this way.
But your life can change in a heartbeat.

Susan Lewis takes her readers on a roller coaster ride of a story about how life can change in just one minute. She always writes wonderful stories about families but I thought that this was her best novel yet.
