Dead Letters

Dead Letters Dead Letters by Jonathan Stone
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A quick story about two people who are the Postal Police. Never knew of such a job. But apparently in Florida these two did their job until one day they were investigating the office of dead letters. The place where your letters go when they are not addressed correctly. Apparently they could not be returned either to the sender because that address to was incorrect. But strangely enough when these letters are found in the office the man in charge of shredding them (because he died) who did not shred them....questions need to be answered. And it all connect to a drug ring. Interesting story and a fast read.

The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd

The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd The Regrets of Cyrus Dodd by Bette Lee Crosby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ms Crosby...cant get enough of her books...here is another one that I like....no that's not true...I loved it....Ms Crosby takes us into a world where people are kind to each other no matter what happens. It's what life should be about....friends, neighbors, loves, children....no matter what bad luck you run into. Cyrus runs into it all. From his neighbor Virgil torturing him, to leaving the place he loves, to his wife's childbirth problems, to...let me stop there as I do not want to give any more of this amazing story away. Cyrus "regrets" so many things ... but his wife pulls him through all their pain and he begins to see you should concentrate on the things you have accomplished - this is a story of love which sustains this family through heartaches ....but there are good times....and these outweigh the bad. A story that shows you should always look at the glass as half full...not half empty.

Fresh and Clean

When I was younger it didnt matter so much to me how I cleaned my face.  Good old soap and water was fine enough.  But the older I got, the more I realized that skin matters and unless you take care of it....you will end up with problem skin, dry skin, flaky skin.  So when in my 20s I started a regimen of washing with a good cleanser and moisturizing with a good moisturizer.
Even back then I was an Avon lover and continue to be...and now Avon has come out with a "Fresh Take on Clean"!!

First take their Cleansing Brush...it removes impurities and leaves your skin feeling clean.  With a price of only $24.99 it is so affordable.   (It will go up to $40 soon)  What kind of cleaner do you use?  Anew Cleanser....there is a cream cleanser, there is a foam cleanser and a gel cleanser...whatever your choice it is a bargain right now for an intro special of only $5.99 each.

So click on the brochure to the right to go directly to my estore and browse the book....and check out the cleansers.....before they go up in price....

The Two-Family House

The Two-Family House: A Novel The Two-Family House: A Novel by Lynda Cohen Loigman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Imagine a two story house with two brothers and their families living in it. Great idea...right....that's what happened to Mort and Abe. They got married and lived in a two family house. One upstairs, one downstairs. Their families shared everything....they each had children...one all boys, the other all girls. Until the day of the blizzard when the men were away and the women used a midwife to deliver their babies...one a girl, the other a boy. And from that day forward the story takes us through the trials and tribulations of two families living together. From the onset you knew something was amiss...the family that had all boys...got their girl. The family that had all girls...got their boy. But what exactly happened during the birthing time? And how did this affect the families down the line...when the children grew up...can a secret really break up a family?

This story was a "cant put down book" type of story ... showing the love and extent a family will go through to "help" one another. Great story!

I can't do it...

I try everyday....sometimes all day but that is a dream.  I am happy if I can do it in the morning or afternoon but most of the time I can only do it at night.  I am happy if I do it after dinner but life gets in the way.  I am always busy and my house is constantly having people or children in and out all day.

I love the summer because I get to do it all day, on my patio or on the deck with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.  This summer I plan to go to the beach and do it.....

Do you do it? and when? and how often?

Actually you are doing it right now...............READ

I am a READAHOLIC....in between working full time, watching grandkids and taking care of hubby and the house....how about you?

Two for the Show

Two for the Show Two for the Show by Jonathan Stone
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I have read other books by Mr. Stone and loved them. For some reason had a hard time getting through this book...probably because it jumped all around and I myself had trouble keeping up with the characters. It is based on identify theft and sometimes I didn't know who the real guys were.
It follows Wallace the Amazing who really isn't Wallace or is he -and it seems there are so many people in the story who are not exactly who they claim to be. So you must read the story very carefully in order to follow. I will still continue to read Stone's books - loved "Moving Day" - and look forward to his other books.
