Swimming Between Worlds by Elaine Neil Orr ~ A Review

by Donna Huber

A couple of weeks ago Susan reviewed Swimming Between Worlds by Elaine Neil Orr. When she gave me her review I had just started the book. I have to agree with her, it is a great novel.

We Own the Sky by @LukeAllnutt ~ A Review

by Susan Roberts

We Own the Sky is a sensitive and beautifully written debut novel about the death of a child. Yes, it's sad and yes, you will shed some tears but the feeling after I finished the book was not sorrow but a feeling of love, forgiveness, and hope. This book shows how far parents will go to protect their children and it's a book that I won't soon forget.

Horror Edition: Jack Sparks and Head Full of Ghosts

by Alison DeLuca

I have a full-blown addiction to horror novels. In the movie theater I’m the baby who watches through her fingers and cries at the scary parts, but when it comes to reading I’m all about the scares

The Secret to Southern Charm by Kristy Woodson Harvey ~ A Review

by Susan Roberts

I can tell that it's finally Spring in NC. The trees and flowers are in bloom and there's a new Kristy Woodsen Harvey book to enjoy sitting outside in the perfect spring weather.

Here's the first paragraph of the first chapter. Would you keep reading?
Time had lost its meaning. I only realized it was night because the water outside my bedroom window at my monther's home in Peachtree Bluff, Georgia, wasn't blue anymore. It was black and shining like fresh-paved asphalt. Bust inside, in my room, on my TC, it wasn't night. It was Saturday morning, the third precious birthday of my son Adam, Jr., or AJ, as we called him. My strong, national hero of a husband, in his off-duty khaki shorts and collared shirt, was holding our other son, six-month-old Taylor, in one arm. I was behind the camera cooing, "Smile for Daddy one more time. Can you smile for Daddy?" Taylor smiled. Who wouldn't smile for the handsome man holding him?

Note - The Secret to Southern Charm is Book 2 in Kristy Woodson Harvey's Peachtree Bluff series. You need to read these books in order to get the most enjoyment out of them.

The Tangled Lands by Paolo Bacigalupi and Tobias S. Buckell - An @Audible_com Review

by Donna Huber

The Tangled Lands is an epic fantasy told as 4 related short stories. I did not know that when I started listening to the audiobook and thought I must have missed part of the story which happens sometimes with audiobooks. But looking further at the comments on Goodreads I realized that I didn't miss anything. I loved Bacigalupi's The Water Knife when my book club read it and even though epic fantasy isn't a top genre for me I wanted to give this book a chance.
