I hope that everyone had a great weekend and had time to read.
Its Monday what are you reading? A place to meet up and show what you have been reading over the week.
It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date. So I thought I would try it and see if I could keep up with it and share what I am reading and planning on reading.
What I read last week:
Past events cast shadows you can’t outrun. Wayne and Phil knew that better than anyone, after Stevie died, way back when they were children. A pebble dropped in a pool. Ripples spreading outwards. Who knew where they would end?

No one wants to think about getting older. It’s true. At any age, when things are moving along normally day to day and everyone seems fit and well, there seems no reason to think about future problems that your friends and relatives might (and probably will) come across as they age. In fact, it might even seem a little morbid to think such thoughts, or possibly even tempting fate?
Yet there will come a time when you must raise these issues and, ideally, this should be before any problems arise. The Essential Family Guide to Caring for Older People is the ultimate source of information and help for families with care responsibilities. Deborah Stone draws on her extensive experience working in elder care to offer practical advice on every aspect of the field in-depth.
What I am reading now:
Former FBI-profiler Eva Rae Thomas is back and embedded in a true nightmare reaching deep into her own family.
What would you do if your brother was accused of a horrible crime, and you were certain he didn’t do it?
Life is not done throwing Eva Rae Thomas curveballs.
A phone call turns her life upside down – once again. The call is from her father, the man she hasn’t seen in thirty-six years, not since he kidnapped her sister in a supermarket.
Now, he is back in Florida, and he needs her help. Her younger brother – who she didn’t know existed – has been arrested on Amelia Island. The boy is in a coma after being shot by an officer during the incident. But his father doesn’t believe the police, and he asks for Eva Rae’s help to prove it.
At the same time, a serial killer is planning one of the most horrific mass killings in history.
Will Eva Rae find it in her heart to help her father after what he did to her? Will facing him again set her free or pull her under?
SAY YOU LOVE ME is the fourth book in the Eva Rae Thomas Mystery Series and can be read as a standalone.

When, at age fifteen, Hannah Miller goes to work “on the Outside” of her Old Order Amish community in Pennsylvania, she promises her parents that she will not be tempted by the fancy lifestyle of “der Englischer.” Two years later, she has kept that promise, but she is now admitting to herself that it is not the English lifestyle that draws her. It is her love for her employer, Abram Goodman.
Though she holds her love for Goodman as a secret in her heart, Hannah’s fantasy world collapses when Goodman takes a wife. Hannah seeks a way to pay him back for the imagined infidelity of which she accuses him. Her actions set forth a ripple effect that touches not just Abram and his wife but Hannah’s family and others in her Amish community.
The Bond Woman is not the typical “Amish novel,” in that it does not present the Amish in a pristine, idyllic lifestyle where the greatest transgressions might be coveting a piece of lace or loving music from “the Outside.” Nor is this is this a predictable love story; rather, it is a complex psychological drama that deals with Hannah’s dual conversion — both inward and outward. Like an irresistible light, the story line of The Bond Woman draws Hannah and the reader in unpredictable directions.
