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....

Book Review....Breath of Scandal

Breath of ScandalBreath of Scandal by Sandra Brown

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



This review is from: Breath of Scandal (Kindle Edition)
Sandra Brown never fails to thrill me with her stories. She takes a loving woman and puts her into an unimaginable situation and turns it into a love story. Jade gets raped by 3 boys, gets pregnant and decides to keep the baby and plan her revenge on her rapists. After 15 years she returns to her home town with her son to make this revenge a reality. Superb story. Page turner. Bravo.

Book Review - The Tenth Song

The Tenth SongThe Tenth Song by Naomi Ragen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Naomi Ragen does it again. Just love her books. At first thought it would be a whole legal case thing. But was pleasantly surprised when it took a turn. Having everything in life, Abigail and her husband start to plan for their daughter's wedding. They have a beautiful home, money, children and grandchildren. Life is good. But then hubby is taken by the FBI for investing client's money into a terrorist account. He had no idea. Here is where I thought the case would end up in court, but the turn came when their daughter, Kayla, picks herself up, flies to Israel - away from chaos - and finds a different kind of life. What follows is a beautiful story of family, love and awakening.

The Talmud says mankind has ten songs to sing............
