Book Review - She Can Hide

She Can Hide (She Can... #4)She Can Hide by Melinda Leigh

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Didn't think I would love this book as much as I did. Beginning was slow even though it starts off with Abby Foster plunging into a lake and trying to escape her car. Officer Hale finds her and saves her....and then it begins. This book is filled with everything....murder, romance, thrills, secrets, surprises, love, family.....all in a great story. Abby goes from running away from her past to falling in love, and becoming part of a family who takes her in and protects her. The ending will wow you....definitely a good read. This is part of the "She Can Series"....definitely will read more of Melinda Leigh's books.

Book Review - Jephte's Daughter

Jephte's DaughterJephte's Daughter by Naomi Ragen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Ms Ragen has done it again.. Another of her stories about religious women and the obstacles they climb to adjust or change their lives. Batsheva was a free spirit who thought she could take over the world. She had big dreams that also included marrying and starting a family. But she was not prepared for the arranged marriage her father made her; her overbearing husband who felt he possessed her and all her belongings; and when she could not take it anymore - well, read the book....she does the unimaginable, takes it to the next level and disengages herself and son from her family.....only then does she find peace, love, kindness, and a new life for herself....but finds this can only be completed by returning to the old life and settling a few things....excellent and well written as usual. I would have given it 5 stars except there were many parts, while beautiful and descriptive about the country of Israel....seemed long and moved the book along at a slower pace than I would have liked.

Book Review - The Wyattsville Series

The Wyattsville SeriesThe Wyattsville Series by Bette Lee Crosby

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


It is so very hard not to get involved in a Bette Lee Crosby book. So when I started reading this series that combined SPARE CHANGE, HOPEFUL AND JUBILEE'S JOURNEY I was completely hooked...line...and sinker. Having 8 grandchildren of my own, I instantly related to Olivia and while I always wanted children, unlike Olivia, I saw a woman with the biggest heart ever. The stories intertwined and you become part of the family.....like all of her friends, including Detective Mahoney. A heartbreaking story....with an ending that will surprise and inspire you. Bette Lee....again, thank you for great stories.

Book Review - In The Blood

In the BloodIn the Blood by Lisa Unger

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This story keeps you guessing throughout the book leaving the end to explains all the reasons that led to the climax. All I wanted to do was to get to the end. The thrills and psychotic overtones were amazing. Lane or Lana thinks she .... had something to do with her mom's killing. Her father is on death row for it. She is a very disturbed child who has gender issues. Trying to find herself she hooks up with a girl who suddenly disappears. Only when things get hot and confusing do we find how the pieces fit together. Great book. Sometimes when you think you are running away from your problems....you are actually running into them....
