A Deadly Divide by Ausma Zehanat Khan ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

This year I'm trying to add a bit of diversity to my reading. I thought this was important as I often use reading to explore issues, cultures, and time periods that I would have little contact with in my real life. A Deadly Divide, the fifth book in the Rachel Getty & Esa Khattak series, features two Canadian officers with Community Policing. Their mandate is to work with minority groups.

2 Well Done Novellas

by Susan Roberts

I don't read many short stories because I prefer novels where the characters and action can be better explained.  I have read two novellas recently that were very well done and very interesting.

Definition of Novella:  A novella is a text of written, fictional, narrative prose normally longer than a short story but shorter than a novel, somewhere between 17,500 and 40,000 words. The English word "novella" derives from the Italian novella, feminine of novello, which means "new".

The Hiding Place by C.J. Tudor ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"Even before stepping into the cottage, Gary knows that this is bad.

It's the sickly-sweet smell drifting out through the open door, the flies buzzing around, the sticky, hot hallway and, if that isn't a dead giveaway that something about this house is not right, not right in the worst possible way, then the silence confirms it." Prologue, pg 1

Love of Finished Years by Gregory Erich Phillips ~ a Review

She worked in a Manhattan sweatshop and soon had the opportunity to work for a wealthy family on Long Island. This introduces her to the world of the elites right before the precarious entry into the Great War.
