3 Books with Strong Female Characters over 30

by Susan Roberts

As a female over 30 (to be honest, way way over 30), I am always happy to find books with female main characters who are over 30 that are strong women and not doddering old ladies who have a house full of cats.   This month, I was lucky to find two books with strong female main characters.

Review: The Big Bad Wolf by Jus Accardo #Giveaway

by MK French

Kensey Deaton is the daughter of one of the werewolf leaders and considered a pampered princess. She has no intention of being handed off to the son of one of her father's allies and instead chooses Slade McAllister, her onetime friend and the son of the worst werewolf in town. It doesn't help that Slade has a bad reputation all of his own, but she is determined not to simply fall in line with tradition.

2 Historical Novels to Read for Women's History Month

by Susan Roberts

Today I have reviews of two books of historical fiction that would make good reads for Women's History Month. One is a historical memoir about the author's grandmother and the other is the debut novel of a female author. They take place in different parts of the world and different time periods but they both reflect troubling times in world history.

Fire and Ice: Books and Marathons for the last of winter

Review: The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian

by Susan Roberts

(first chapter, first paragraph)
She was aware first of the scent of the hotel shampoo, a Middle Eastern aroma reminiscent of anise, and then - when she opened her eyes - the way the light from the window was different from the light in the rooms in the hotel where the crew usually stayed. Ths morning sun was oozing through one slender line from the ceiling to the floor where the drapes, plush as they were, didn't quite meet and blanching a strip of carpet. She blinked, not against the light but against the thumping spikes of pain behind her eyes. She needed water, but it would take a tsunami to avert the hangover that awaited. She needed Advil, but she feared the red pills that she popped like M&M's at moments like this were distant. They were in the medicine bag in her own hotel room, in her own hotel.

"I'm a very, very good liar. I lie all the time. I lie to other people. I lie to myself."

Chris Bohjalian's new book, The Flight Attendant, is an intricately plotted suspense novel. It's told from dual points of view by two well written female characters.
