The Boardwalk Bookshop by Susan Mallery ~ a Review & Excerpt

by MK French



The Boardwalk Bookshop is a bookstore, gift shop, and bakery all rolled into one, Bree, Mikki, and Ashley's combined business. That's going well, but not their personal lives. Bree is emotionally wounded and is determined to protect herself from further heartbreak, especially from Ashley's brother. Mikki is still friends with her ex and her in-laws, but a new man changes everything she thought she knew. Ashley's love never intends to marry, destroying her dream of being a wife.

The French for Murder by Verity Bright ~ a Review

by Donna Huber



The French Riviera is the place to be this summer. I know it is the off-season as it can be unbearably hot, but more and more people are vacationing there earlier. I just saw the Lord and Lady Grantham there when I watched the second Downton Abbey movie a couple of weeks ago. Now Lady Eleanor Swift and her staff have taken a villa on the seaside to enjoy a nice, quiet rest.

Wolf Catcher by Anne Montgomery ~ a Review

by MK French


In 1939, a tomb in Ridge Ruin was uncovered, containing the remains of a man dressed with fine turquoise jewelry and intricate beadwork, surrounded by myriad pots, arrow points, and fine mineral specimens. Wooden swords with handles carved into animal hooves and human hands that the Hopi workers explained identified him as a magician. Kate Butler, a former television reporter, researches the remains, finding different characteristics in his bone structure from those living in the area. Her research takes her into the area as it was nine hundred years before, as well as the modern-day black market for antiquities.

3 Biographical Fiction Stories to Read

by Susan Roberts



In the United States, many people are spending time with friends and family cooking out, visiting the beach or pool, and maybe enjoying some fireworks later tonight to kick off the unofficial start of summer. But Memorial Day is about so much more than just some fun. We are remembering and honoring the men and women who answered the call to defend our country. Historical fiction can be a great way to learn about some of these people. I read a lot of WWII fiction, which is one of the most popular sub-genres of historical fiction. It seems like it would be easy to repeat the same stories and just change the names but authors keep finding new ways to address the war.  I've recently read 3 books that take a different look at the heroic women who did their part to win the war.  Each of these books looks at a different aspect of the war.

Angels of the Pacific is about the war with Japan
Sisters of Night and Fog has an American woman who stays in France to help the resistance
The Diamond Eye is about a Russian female sniper

4 Books for Fans of Horror Novels

by MK French



I can read horror and dark fantasy any time of year, but I know some people prefer to only read it when it is bright and sunny outside. Today, I have books regardless of which category you fall in. Two are new books and two are older titles you might have missed.
