My Review:

WOW and Double Wow.  Awesome read!

OMG! This story keeps you enthralled until the very end! I couldn’t put the book down despite needing to rise early the next day… JUST one MORE chapter… right? Hmmm… nope, I needed to finish a few more chapters before turning in for the night!

What can I say about this story? (Don’t worry, no spoilers here!) The author starts out with a couple of interesting scenes; she goes nice and slow… and then… The story rockets from there! We are drawn in with the action, wondering who could do such a thing! She tells the story in such a way that you are

drawn in and feel right along with the characters. Eva Rae’s anger, dear, and disgust… her daughter’s fear and drive to survive until she can either escape or be rescued… her sister’s pain for bringing the cause of the situation near the family… her boyfriend’s love, fear, and desire to protect her… The way the story unfolds tugs at your emotions and won’t let go!  This is definitely a great book and I am giving it 5 stars.   Now I am on to book #4 Say You Love Me, I see less sleep in my next couple of nights.

 

Hello and Welcome

to my next review.  I hope that you all are having a great start of the New Year. So far I have finished two books for January.  What have you finished or started?  Now on to my next review.

Wow! Another great story from Willow Rose! I couldn’t put this down as I HAD to know what would happen next!

As usual with the author, she has real characters that are well developed, and the stories are full of twists and turns – you won’t see the answer coming! Too, she based this story on an actual case – but she took the story and made it her own. One thing reading this, there is nail biting suspense as the criminal gets more audacious with his crimes… HOPING that he will be recognized for his work.

The author uses gut wrenching detail on the victims… what they had been put through at the hands of this sadist. If you are squeamish, just keep this in mind.  I was kind of disappointed with the ending, it was a cliffhanger and left me hanging.  I then had to purchase the next one in this series, Never Ever; I have to find out if Eva Rae finds her daughter.

I am giving this a 5 star rating, I am really loving this author and her style of writing.  On to the next.

The Essential Family Guide To Caring For Older People Book Review

51Qy7z8fDkL._SX325_BO1,204,203,200_

Blurb

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.

Topics range from how to get help immediately, legal information, care funding options, a guide to useful technology and advice on the main physical and mental health issues that affect older people. Plus, guidance is given on dealing with social services and ensuring you choose the right care for your situations. Crucially, the book also offers help on how to cope as a career with practical advice on juggling family, work and your caring responsibilities while looking after yourself.

My Review

I would like to thank LoveBooktours, the publishers and Deborah Stone for ARC copy of this for an honest review

I found this book very informative and helpful for a situation we all will face but never take the time to plan for. Particularly useful, I thought, were the sections on aspects of caring for older people, which recommend taking care of you, something a lot of us do not think of, but, of course, we cannot be the best careers if we are not mentally and physically healthy, too. I just wished I had known about this book before my mom passed.

Stone also takes on the family drama which can arise during the on-going illnesses of our loved ones and gives useful tips on how to navigate that.

I highly recommend this book to all families, I am giving this 5 stars.

DON’T LIE TO ME (Eva Rae Thomas Mystery Book 1)  By Rose Willow

51Z6eEahyvL

When twelve-year-old Sophie Williams went on a Girl Scout summer camp, she never returned home.

Three months later, her body is found inside her sleeping bag in the most frequented area of Cocoa Beach, and the town is outraged.

The girl isn’t just any child. She’s the town’s most beloved surf idol, and it was believed that she could be the next Kelly Slater.

As another child, the son of a well-known senator is kidnapped, and the parents receive a disturbing video, FBI profiler Eva Rae Thomas — who has just returned to her hometown, divorced and out of a job — plunges into the investigation, breaking her promise to her children not to do police work again.

Local law enforcement, with her old flame Matt Miller in charge, are the ones who ask for her help in a case so unsettling that only she can solve it. But the deeper they dig, the deadlier it becomes for Matt and Eva Rae. Soon, everyone she holds dear is in grave danger as this case hits a little too close to home.

DON’T LIE TO ME is the first book in the Eva Rae Thomas Mystery Series and can be read as a standalone.

My Review:

This my first book from this author, it was recommend to me by a friend and it took place in Florida so I thought I would try it.  I really enjoyed it and I am now reading the next one in the series.

Eva Rae has recently been through a divorce which wasn’t pleasant–she quit her job with the FBI and moved with her three children back to the town where she grew up and where her parents still lived.

A parent’s worst nightmare–their child is kidnapped never to be heard from again–unless they turn up dead.

Eva Rae has recently been through a divorce which wasn’t pleasant–she quit her job with the FBI and moved with her three children back to the town where she grew up and where her parents still lived.

She managed to stay out of the investigation until the day one of her best friends came to her door with a woman –her child hadn’t come home-the woman was frantic but for reasons you might understand she could not go to the police.  Will they find her in time?

This was a great read and I am giving it 5 stars, and I am on the next one.

Thanks for stopping by.

2020 finishing the Series Reading Challenge.

Good Morning everyone, its a chilly day here in Florida.  Our temps are in the 40’s and will warm up to about 60, today.  I am loving this cooler weather, out comes the sweaters, boots, Yeah!  I follow a copy of book blogs, and came across this one, so she is doing this challenge besides the Goodreads Challenge.   https://megabunnyreads.home.blog with a great read for 2020 so far.  I followed her link to this blog Celebrity Readers and thought this was a great idea, so I thought why not go for this challenge.  So here’s how it works.

This year I am participating in two reading challenges (besides the usual Goodreads one), and the first is the 2020 Finishing the Series Reading Challenge!

Hosted by Celebrity Readers, this is all about finishing those series we all have hanging around on our shelves half-read. I have a million of these, so it’s really perfect!

We’re back for another year!!  This challenge is focused on finally finishing those series that you’ve started but not yet completed.  It was previously hosted by Bea’s Book Nook, but we’ve been hosting it since 2018.

January to March Link-Up

Guidelines:

While we’re pretty lax about how you wish to set up this challenge for yourself, we do have a few guidelines to follow.

  • The challenge will run from January 1st, 2020 to December 31st, 2020.  Books must be read during this time frame to count.  Sign up is open from now until December 1st, 2020, so you may join even just for the last month of the year.
  • Series can be already completed as well as still ongoing.  For ongoing series, the goal is to catch up to the most recent book published by the end of 2020.
  • We don’t care if you have only 1 book or 10 books to read in order to finish your series, as long as you’ve started the series before 2020 (ie read at least one book in the series), it counts.  Re-reads are not required.
  • Any format and length of book counts – print, ebook, audio, ARC, etc.
  • Series can be any length (even if it’s just a Duet).
  • Crossovers from other challenges are totally acceptable!
  • Reviews are not required, but highly encouraged.

How to Play:

  • Declare your intentions to participate in this challenge somewhere on the internet!!  You do not need to be a blogger to participate, there are many ways to declare.  You could write a blog post, create a reading challenge page, create a Goodreads shelf containing series you hope to finish, post about it on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
  • Some things you couldinclude (but that aren’t required):
    • A link to this page so that others may find us and join the fun as well (feel free to download the button at the top to use in your posts).
    • A list of series you hope to read for this challenge.  You could even get fancy and list the length of the series, or the books you’ve already read, etc.
    • The level you are aiming for.
  • Sign up for the challenge using the link up below, and link directlyto where you’ve declared your intentions (ie to the specific blog post, the goodreads shelf, the facebook post, etc).
  • We will be posting quarterlylink ups for you to add links to your reviews or any wrap-up/overview posts you wish to share.
  • Go forth and READ!!  And have fun!!
  • Use the hashtag #FinishingTheSeries2020on any social media to keep up with other participants!

The Reward:

Uh…your own sense of pride in achieving a goal?  Sorry folks, we’re not actually that motivated by prizes ourselves, so we’re just offering bragging rights.  But we can offer you some pretty graphics to either declare your goal or to use as a badge once achieved!

The Levels:

We offer you 3 different “Celebrity” levels of achievement for this reading challenge:

C-LIST SERIES FINISHER ⇒ COMPLETE 1-4 SERIES.

C-List-2020

B-LIST SERIES FINISHER ⇒ COMPLETE 5-8 SERIES.B-List-2020

A-LIST SERIES FINISHER ⇒ COMPLETE 9+ SERIES.

A Note from Emma Mitchell:

As the blurb tells us, When Stars Will Shine is a multi-genre collection of Christmas-themed short stories compiled to raise money for our armed forces and every penny made from the sales of both the digital and paperback copies will be donated to the charity.

Working closely with Kate Noble at Noble Owl Proofreading and Amanda Ni Odhrain from Let’s Get Booked, I’ve been able to pick the best of the submissions to bring you a thrilling book which is perfect for dipping into at lunchtime or snuggling up with on a cold winter’s night. I have been completely blown away by the support we’ve received from the writing and blogging community, especially the authors who submitted stories and Shell Baker from Baker’s Not So Secret Blog, who has organised the cover reveal and blog tour.

There isn’t a person in the country who hasn’t benefited from the sacrifices our troops, past and present, have made for us and they all deserve our thanks.

It has been an honour working on these stories, and I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I have.

First Lines Friday

Hello and Welcome back to First Lines Friday.

I hope that your new year is starting right.  Have you started your 2020 book goal?  If so how many?  I have set up my reading goal to be 60.  Last year I had it at 50 and went why beyond it.  Let see how I do this year.

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!

Are you ready to find out what I am reading………

First Book of the New Year 2020

Since 2014 Sheila over at Book Journey has been leading us in choosing that first special book of the year. It’s thanks to her that I have decided that I would do it this year, I just hadn’t thought of it before. However I think its such a great idea.  For 2020 I have chosen Don’t Lie To Me By:  Rose Willow.  It’s a series of three, it was recommended to me from a Friend and it takes place in Florida.
