The Good Twin by Marti Green ~ A Review

by Donna Huber

When I started The Good Twin, I wasn't sure I could finish. The idea that a sibling could plot the murder of her twin just didn't sit right with me. But I'm glad I kept going. It is a great thriller.

Life's wounds come at us from many directions.  They are William Shakespeare's "slings and arrows of outrageous fate".  Sometimes they are delivered by those closest to us.  Sometimes they aren't even true.  The wound is real, but not the perceived hurt behind the arrow.

By Invitation Only by Dorothea Benton Frank ~ A Review #MondayBlogs

by Susan Roberts

Dorothea Benton Frank has been publishing books since 1999 and I am happy to say that I've read every one of them. Her books are Southern Fiction at its best and are the first indication every year that summer is just around the corner. This book is a bit different for her because the South Carolina beach is not a 'character' in the book but it still has her signature style and is a fantastic read that will have you laughing out loud during parts of it.
