Kevin Turner is a reporter on the run from...Yikes!
As if the world isn't weird enough, this author
creatively invents a horrific setting full
of human ‘shells’ that/who(?) follow him to the Gerald
Ford school where his wife works and a
church where he intends to find solace, only to end up
at the police station where Detective Lawrence
wants to know what’s going on. The flashbacks and memories
kind of tangle with the action but the characterizations and
descriptions are great.
Fast paced and graphic, it’s not the stuff I normally
read but someone recommended it and I’m glad to have read
it. For some strange reason my favorite part
had to do with a giant burrito. Perhaps recalling my own days
at a newspaper when I had to hurry in to a
store for lunch, grab a burrito and eat it in my car before
deadline. Something about deadlines does sound
zombie-ish and the terror of missing a deadline is worse than
any growling hunger. Anyway, that part made
me chuckle and sympathize with Kevin. I liked this book butit seriously gave me nightmares.
Perhaps I’m late in the game having finally read
JackLondon’s storyWhite Fang and yet I feel that now that I’m older
I appreciate the hardship this
combination wolf /dog endured. White Fang’s trials are
interpreted with eloquent, yet graphic detail.
The miraculous transformation is almost mortifying for
the proud son of a she-wolf.
Lured into many bloody battles, the story winds from
Northern tundra, to forest, camp,
river, cabin and finally a stately home in California....
London’s instincts and soulful accounts of
feelings, dreams and travel from White Fang’s perspective
made me reflect on my own rescue dogs
and how they must have felt when they faced commonplace
situations and obstacles in their lives.
If you are a dog lover, then you owe it to yourself to readthis book!
Eula May is in big trouble and every
chapter will make you want to find out how she’s
going to get out of that trouble. Just when you think,
you've solved the crime in your head
there’s another twist to the story and pretty soon, you
feel like you’re playing Clue and losing,
all while having a great time. This is Amy Fremgen’s first
novel and I have to say it’s well written
and hilarious. If you enjoy the classic who-done-it,
interspersed with a lot of humor, you’ll love thisbook just like I did. I recommend it highly!!
The story starts out with the characters literally being
tossed together during a California earthquake,
while riding in an elevator. After they're rescued,
the story gets pretty steamy and they come face to face
with some major issues involving trust. Once I got past what
I personally thought sounded juvenile--things
like `popped my cherry' and `boy toy'--I tried to understand
the writer's focus about psychology
and how important therapy can be to people who have suffered
abuse. It's a good message--but back to the story:
Will Tristan go back to his prostitutes?
Will Joanne run into Michael's arms while at the conference and
forget about Tristan and his insecurity?

This book surprised me with tons of resources, links and
fabulous advice for teaching children
not only how to learn but to have fun while learning. At first,
I thought it was going to be about
home schooling but instead it was a plethora of parties, games
and hot chocolate, crafted to be less
about the classroom and more about the family. The author takes
a monthly look at all the possibilities
that might intertwine with the lessons taught at school and
embellishes the teacher’s groundwork with deeper
questions and fun projects that even the parent’s will enjoy.
It’s about how to keep children engaged,
entertained and interested in reading, learning and spending
time with others.
If you know a parent who worries about video games and mobile
apps taking control of their child,then you need to get them this book right now!
She’s a crime reporter turned consultant.
She lives in a seaside condominium and dresses in khaki pants
when her boyfriend’s out of town. Of course, when he’s around
she’s wearing something sheer but not for long.
After all, he’s a very busy, good-looking photographer who can
skip out in a heartbeat.
Thank God, he’s in love. Meanwhile, Marcy is the coolest chick
in literature—kind of a female
and very perceptive, Clint Eastwood.
Billington writes this character
as if he knows women inside
and out--not just any woman--
but the tough and beautiful kind that
get things done.
If you enjoy exciting stories with
mounting suspense then you’ll love
Reminded me of those puzzles where you connect all the dots.
There’s a lot going on and a lot of dots
but Marcy plans on stringing
everything together so
she can figure things out. When her friend,
a restaurateur by the name
of Paul, goes to jail for a crime
he couldn't possibly have committed, Marcy
becomes ‘Dirty Harry in a
dress.’ Well almost.
She’s asking a lot of questions and getting
deeper and deeper into a
Will she figure out what happened? Will she live
through this ordeal?
Billington pulls you into this mystery until you’re worried sick
I loved the author’s smooth and easy writing style and dragged
it out as long as I could,
but alas, the book ended and now I know what happened and sinceyou don’t, I recommend you order your copy today!
Have you ever started a great book and thought,
“I’m not sure I’m going to like this?”
Maybe it was the use of the first person or
the fact that it seemed too familiar. Was I scared?
The author begins the tension slowly with detailed
descriptions of the main character’s daily routine,
her friends and her volunteer work.
Very cleverly, her book pulled me right back into high
school,reminding me of my own volunteer work and my own rotten
In other words, I connected with Miss Williby’s character.
Furthermore, my wonderful husband swears he saw me in his dreams,
as a young man and knew he had to find me!
Miss Williby’s writing is so believable
that I could feel the emotion and her pain.
Every time I came to the word “I,” it made me worry. No, it’s not
me but could it...no, don’t worry...yet still...wow.
Perhaps that’s how I define great writing.
It became apparent that I LOVED this book and looked forward to
The more I loved the book, the more I hated the boyfriends.
I’m still mystified about Jack and perplexed about Jim/ Chris.
Truth is I still don’t trust Chris but Tessina did—big time—in fact,
those are some embarrassingly juicy love scenes.
Meanwhile, it looks like there are sequels that will hopefully
answer some of the lingering
questions about her parents and the biological tampering.
When the end rolls around you’ll be out of breath! What willTessina do next? Will love survive?
