“What the Dead Know” by Laura Lippman

Laura Lippman is skilled at creating stories that have more twists and turns that a country road. What the Dead Know is a perfect example of her talent. From the first page she sets up the mystery, presenting the main character caught up in a situation she did not foresee and is ill prepared for. With flashbacks, different characters perspectives, and a puzzle thirty years … Continue reading “What the Dead Know” by Laura Lippman

December Weekends with the Kids: Christmas Movies to Share

I have a BIG confession. Christmas is not my favorite holiday. I have a BIGGER confession. I don’t like most Christmas movies. However, over the years as the mother of four now grown children and five grandchildren I have had to succumb to several children’s Christmas movies. I see more of these movies in my not too distant future with the addition of a great … Continue reading December Weekends with the Kids: Christmas Movies to Share

Christmas Books for Children

There are a multitude of children’s Christmas books and most of us can name one or two. There’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” by Dr. Seuss, “The Polar Express” by Chris Van Allsburg, the Berenstain Bears Christmas books, and lots of Disney inspired Christmas books. I thought I would share some lesser known children’s Christmas books. I bet you’ll find something you like! Ages 2-4 … Continue reading Christmas Books for Children

“Target in the Sun” by Lynda Filler

I’ve enjoyed Lynda Filler’s “Jet” series and was eager to read her book, “Target in the Sun”. Winning an autographed copy in a contest I never expected such a compelling story. The book is written in a very unique style; told from the perspective of three characters through using e-mails and journals as well as narrative. It’s much more than a romance; it’s the story … Continue reading “Target in the Sun” by Lynda Filler

“Lifeline” By Alexis Alvarez (From the Anthology “Bleed Blue 69”)

  I was given a copy of the story Lifeline by Alexis Alvarez before publication and enjoyed this sexy take on the New York Police Department. As a former New Yorker, an art lover, and a fan of the television show “Seinfeld” I loved the author’s view of the city’s police department. Alvarez easily captures the flavor of the big city; its unique humor, its … Continue reading “Lifeline” By Alexis Alvarez (From the Anthology “Bleed Blue 69”)
