All the Lovely Children by Andrew Nance ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"She tossed the ball up a couple of times and then heard a soft sound, followed by another, and then another. Sudden fear coursed through Savannah. She couldn't tell which direction the noise came from but she thought it sounded like three soft footsteps, like someone sneaking around, maybe even creeping up on her. She noted how loud her breathing was and how her heartbeat was way too fast.  The sound was never repeated, but she was still certain someone was close by. She could sense them."

Superbly Written ~ Lost Roses by Martha Hall Kelly

by Donna Huber

I loved Lilac Girls so when I heard that Martha Hall Kelly had a new book coming out I was excited. Lost Roses is set during WWI, a period I don't read a lot, so this would be a test. Did I love Lilac Girls because it is in a favorite genre or because Kelly is a talented storyteller?

The Key to Happily Ever After by Tif Marcelo ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

I love reading books about sisters. As the oldest of three sisters, I can tell you that this book is very true to real life - three sisters having frequent disagreements but always having each other's backs when life gets tough.  These three sisters are struggling to keep the family wedding planning business successful. Their parents had started the business and when they retired, they turned the business over to their daughters - Mari, Jane, and Pearl. This is a sweet romantic comedy about the power of sisterhood.
