My life has been fairly boring the last couple of months while I have self quarantined with only a few trips to the grocery store.  What better time to read something exciting and suspenseful.  Here are two of the books that made life more exciting for me.

The Summer Deal by Jill Shalvis ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

After reading Susan's review of one of Jill Shalvis's books, I've wanted to try them. I decided to start with her newest beach read The Summer Deal. While it leaned more towards chick-lit than I was expecting, I did enjoy the book.

by MK French

In a world where the French Revolution failed, 1828 Paris is ruled by the royalty and the Court of Miracles, heads of nine underworld guilds. Nina is part of the Thieves Guild, and is adept at stealing and avoiding her father. She has to protect her adopted younger sister Ettie, especially after Ettie attracts the attention of the Tiger, the leader of the Flesh Guild. Saving Ettie might set off a war between all of the guilds, but the alternative is to lose her to the Tiger.

All of Us by A.F. Carter ~ a Review

by MK French

Carolyn Grant had been subjected to extreme and horrible sexual and physical abuse from her biological father, then by the foster family, she was sent to. Even after she aged out of the system, she continued to be exploited by others around her. She had fractured into several different people all sharing the same body, all with the goal of surviving one day at a time. This is challenged when Eleni, the promiscuous personality propositions an undercover police officer and then is sent to a psychiatric facility and is under protective custody. It’s complicated further when her father is released from prison, and then when he’s found dead. Are any of the six personalities capable of murder?

Stories That Bind Us by Susie Finkbeiner ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"Sometimes, I tried to figure out how I was so lucky to end up marrying into such an incredible family. Most of the time I realized it hadn't been luck at all.
It was nothing short of a gift."  (p18)

May: a Month of Reading and Gardening

by Donna Huber

Here we are at the end of another month. I'm starting my 12th week working solely from home. I have so enjoyed working from home, but there is talk about slowly bringing people back to campus but I think I will still work mostly from home through the summer. Life has definitely settled into a routine and I'm back to my pre-pandemic reading level - actually I read a couple more books than usual.
