Where the Forest Meets the Stars By: Glendy Vanderah

51sZRlFOe6L._SY346_

An Amazon Charts, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post bestseller, and a Goodreads Choice Award finalist.

In this gorgeously stunning debut, a mysterious child teaches two strangers how to love and trust again.

After the loss of her mother and her own battle with breast cancer, Joanna Teale returns to her graduate research on nesting birds in rural Illinois, determined to prove that her recent hardships have not broken her. She throws herself into her work from dusk to dawn, until her solitary routine is disrupted by the appearance of a mysterious child who shows up at her cabin barefoot and covered in bruises.

The girl calls herself Ursa, and she claims to have been sent from the stars to witness five miracles. With concerns about the child’s home situation, Jo reluctantly agrees to let her stay—just until she learns more about Ursa’s past.

Jo enlists the help of her reclusive neighbor, Gabriel Nash, to solve the mystery of the charming child. But the more time they spend together, the more questions they have. How does a young girl not only read but understand Shakespeare? Why do good things keep happening in her presence? And why aren’t Jo and Gabe checking the missing children’s website anymore?

Though the three have formed an incredible bond, they know difficult choices must be made. As the summer nears an end and Ursa gets closer to her fifth miracle, her dangerous past closes in. When it finally catches up to them, all of their painful secrets will be forced into the open, and their fates will be left to the stars.

My Review:

I was search for a new book to read and came across this book and thought it sounded interesting, and I was right.  I had a hard time putting this book down once I had started it.  The author has created characters that are fully developed and you can interact flawlessly with the participants in the fast moving story.

There are three main characters in this story one of them is Joanna Toule, a field biologist, was studying Indigo Buntings in Southern Illinois.  And then there is Gabe who is also known as the “Egg Man”  and of course there is

Ursa’s the girl who appears and says she’s from the stars and has Joanna wondering and looking into where she came from.

I loved how the story all comes together.  I am glad that I found this quick and exciting read.  I highly recommend the is book.

51nudbaRQWL._SX329_BO1,204,203,200_I am currently 50% through The One by:  John Mars

I am really enjoying so far, I have heard a lot about this author so I decided to read his books.  Here’s a little about the book.

Soon to be a major Netflix Original series

Wall Street Journal Best Science Fiction Book of 2018

“Just try to put this gripping thriller down once you pick it up.” —AARP

“A shock on every other page.” —Wall Street Journal

How far would you go to find The One?

A simple DNA test is all it takes. Just a quick mouth swab and soon you’ll be matched with your perfect partner—the one you’re genetically made for.

That’s the promise made by Match Your DNA. A decade ago, the company announced that they had found the gene that pairs each of us with our soul mate. Since then, millions of people around the world have been matched. But the discovery has its downsides: test results have led to the breakup of countless relationships and upended the traditional ideas of dating, romance and love.

Now five very different people have received the notification that they’ve been “Matched.” They’re each about to meet their one true love. But “happily ever after” isn’t guaranteed for everyone. Because even soul mates have secrets. And some are more shocking than others…

A word-of-mouth hit in the United Kingdom, The One is a fascinating novel that shows how even the simplest discoveries can have complicated consequences.

Let me know if you have read this and what are your thoughts?

What did you recently finish reading?

New York Times bestseller and one of 2019’s best-reviewed books, a poetic memoir and call to action from the award-winning author of Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson!

Bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson is known for the unflinching way she writes about, and advocates for, survivors of sexual assault. Now, inspired by her fans and enraged by how little in our culture has changed since her groundbreaking novel Speak was first published twenty years ago, she has written a poetry memoir that is as vulnerable as it is rallying, as timely as it is timeless. In free verse, Anderson shares reflections, rants, and calls to action woven between deeply personal stories from her life that she’s never written about before. Described as “powerful,” “captivating,” and “essential” in the nine starred reviews it’s received, this must-read memoir is being hailed as one of 2019’s best books for teens and adults. A denouncement of our society’s failures and a love letter to all the people with the courage to say #MeToo and #TimesUp, whether aloud, online, or only in their own hearts, SHOUT speaks truth to power in a loud, clear voice– and once you hear it, it is impossible to ignore.

What do you think you’ll read next?

I have purchased The Glass Hotel by Emily St. John Mandel.  Have you read if so what were your thoughts?

Thanks for reading this week’s WWW on my blog! Have you read any of these books or have plans to? Have you also done a WWW on your blog, if so I will check it out. I welcome your thoughts/comments, and as always-

Thanks for Reading One Girl and a Book

Finding Chika: A Little Girl, an Earthquake, and the Making of a Family By: Mitch Albom

41UhSvXGagL._SX343_BO1,204,203,200_

“Mitch Albom has done it again with this moving memoir of love and loss. You can’t help but fall for Chika. A page-turner that will no doubt become a classic.” –Mary Karr, author of The Liars’ Club and The Art of Memoir

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Tuesdays With Morrie comes Mitch Albom’s most personal story to date: an intimate and heartwarming memoir about what it means to be a family and the young Haitian orphan whose short life would forever change his heart. 

 

 

Blurb:

Chika Jeune was born three days before the devastating earthquake that decimated Haiti in 2010. She spent her infancy in a landscape of extreme poverty, and when her mother died giving birth to a baby brother, Chika was brought to The Have Faith Haiti Orphanage that Albom operates in Port Au Prince.

With no children of their own, the forty-plus children who live, play, and go to school at the orphanage have become family to Mitch and his wife, Janine. Chika’s arrival makes a quick impression. Brave and self-assured, even as a three-year-old, she delights the other kids and teachers. But at age five, Chika is suddenly diagnosed with something a doctor there says, “No one in Haiti can help you with.”

Mitch and Janine bring Chika to Detroit, hopeful that American medical care can soon return her to her homeland. Instead, Chika becomes a permanent part of their household, and their lives, as they embark on a two-year, around-the-world journey to find a cure. As Chika’s boundless optimism and humor teach Mitch the joys of caring for a child, he learns that a relationship built on love, no matter what blows it takes, can never be lost.

Told in hindsight, and through illuminating conversations with Chika herself, this is Albom at his most poignant and vulnerable. Finding Chika is a celebration of a girl, her adoptive guardians, and the incredible bond they formed—a devastatingly beautiful portrait of what it means to be a family, regardless of how it is made.

My Review

Well Mitch has done it again.  I have read every book that this author has read, and I loved this one just has much as his first book.  I love how he goes into detail of the counties that the book is written about. I laughed and yes, I cried as I journeyed with Chika and her ‘new family’. Absolutely heart warming and so very sad at the same time.

Awesome author I can not wait for his next book.  I hope its soon!

I am giving this 5 stars

Murder Ahoy!: A laugh out loud cozy mystery. (The Bella Tyson Mysteries Book 2) By: Fiona Leitch

51ABkmKMEyL._SY346_Famous crime writer Bella Tyson is hired to co-host a Murder Mystery cruise, on a luxury liner sailing from Southampton to New York. She’s expecting an easy ride; fun and games, surrounded by amateur sleuths and fans of her books, all the while staying in a deluxe cabin and enjoying the spa and the amazing restaurants on board, culminating in a visit to one of her favourite cities in the world – the Big Apple.

She’s NOT expecting to be stuck on a boat in the middle of the Atlantic with her two least favourite people in the world, her hot but unfaithful bastard ex-husband Joel Quigley and fellow crime writer, bitch goddess and Twitter frenemy, Louise Meyers. And when real live dead bodies start turning up – as well as fake not-really-dead bodies – Bella’s dreams of being pampered on the high seas turn sour.

Accused of a murder she would have liked to commit but didn’t, and helped (or hindered) by a gang of unlikely detectives, can Bella find out who the real murderer is before the ship reaches its destination and New York’s finest drag her off?

“A sexy, wildly funny read that will keep you guessing right to the end. The queen of the ‘cromcom’ mashup at her best!” Sandy Barker, author of ‘One Summer in Santorini’

I received a copy of this book from The Fiction Cafe – Review Group and publishers for an honest review – Thank you

Wow Wow, another book in this series.  This is the second book to the series and I loved it.  I really hope that there will be another on to follow.  I love how this author keeps you interested from the start to the end of the book.  Through out the book I was trying to guess who the killer was, and each time that I thought I knew who did it, I was wrong.  I never guessed and I was surprised to learn who it was.

If you like page-turning suspense and fast-paced thrillers, you’ll love Murder Ahoy.  This is the second book that I have read by this author and I loved it.

To Hell in a Handbasket

51qq+B+Es2LFrom the Queen of Scream comes a novel that will raise the hair on the back of your neck.

To the neighbors, they’re sweet old ladies. To Tim Robertson, they’re his worst nightmare

Not every grandmotherly type bakes cookies.

What’s more frightening than finding out that the kindly old ladies living across the street from you are anything but?

As a child, Tim Robertson is selling cookies with his best friend Damien when they knock on the door of the house across the street from him. Two old ladies open the door and Tim never sees his best friend again.

Twenty years later, Tim has tried to move on and forget what happened back then. He is married, has a son, and just bought the house of his dreams in small town Cocoa Beach. When the house across the street from them is sold, they are all looking forward to getting new neighbors, until Tim realizes the old ladies are back to haunt him and the rest of the town.

To Hell in a Handbasket is Willow Rose, when she is at her most horrifying. Every page of this book is oozing with dread, and this novel stands shoulder to shoulder with the very best of Koontz and King. Anyone who has read a Willow Rose book knows it’s harder to put the book down than to just finish it.

My Thoughts:
I love reading her books, I enjoy her style of writing.  Although this one I had a hard time getting into it, I had to push my self to finish it.  The style of this book was a different from her other books.
I felt the characters do things no human being would ever do. I also thought that certain items appear in the story out of sheer convenience.  I just didn’t feel the characters or the story line in this book.  I am giving it three stars.

Synopsis:

Bane Illes never smiled.
He never spoke.
But each day, that brooding wizard gave Janiver Benoit a glance.
And when she could not take another quiet stare, or the warmth that look sent over her skin, she took from Bane something he’d never give freely—one lingering, soul knocking kiss.
Ten years later, someone has stolen the one thing that keeps magic hidden from the mortals in Crimson Cove and only Janiver can recover it. But returning to her hometown means she’ll have to face the past and all the secrets she left buried there, including the one person she promised herself she’d never see again. The dangerous wizard that might make leaving Crimson Cove the last thing she wants to do.

*FORGOTTEN MAGIC was previously independently released as CRIMSON COVE. However, Eden has since sold the rights to City Owl Press and the book has been replotted, rewritten, and kicks off the new Crimson Coves trilogy which follows witch Janiver Benoit and her siblings as they try to unravel the well-hidden secrets that have destroyed their family.

The Practice of Deceit

But heroically helping police during a hostage crisis leads to revelations about secrets in Colleen’s past, and those secrets land Eric in handcuffs — maybe for a long, long time — in this sharp thriller that goes from marital bliss to mayhem in no time flat.

Too Close

Too CloseForensic psychiatrist Emma is tasked with determining if suburban housewife Connie can stand trial for the heinous crime with which she’s been charged. The more time Emma spends with Connie, though, the more Connie feels like a friend, not a patient. Is Connie an innocent woman being railroaded for a crime she didn’t commit, or is she a master manipulator, about to penetrate Emma’s professional distance and pull her into a dangerous game? Two narrators and one cat-and-mouse game drive this powerful thriller.

SomeTimes I LieSometimes I Lie

When Amber wakes up in a hospital, she is in a coma, unable to move or communicate, or even open her eyes. But she can hear the people around her, including a therapist who advocated shock therapy, and as she tried to piece together what has brought her to this point, she observes three things: she’s in a coma, her husband doesn’t love her anymore, and sometimes she lies. That last may be the only truth this unreliable narrator tells in this claustrophobic and unsettling thriller as it hurtles through a series of twists, pivots, and shocking reveals.

All is not ForgottenAll Is Not Forgotten

The small, affluent town of Fairview, Connecticut, is picture-perfect, until the night local teenager Jenny Kramer is raped at a party. After she is given a controversial drug to medically erase memories of the attack, neither Jenny nor her family are prepared for the effects of her emotional memories of the rape. And when they seek psychiatric help as a family, all it does is widen fissures that already existed in the marriage. Meanwhile, the hunt for the rapist sets everyone on edge and leads to a succession of poor choices that drive this thriller to its stunning conclusion.

HeartsickHeartsick

The beautiful, deadly Gretchen Lowell puts the psycho firmly in psychological thriller in Heartsick. Portland detective Archie Sheridan spent a decade chasing a therapist-turned–serial killer, only to be captured and then tortured by her for 10 days. Now, as addicted to her as he is to painkillers, and unable to get either of his addictions off his mind for long, he visits her weekly in prison. Watching a serial killer play on a detective’s neuroses like she was playing a banjo is the key to this whip-smart thriller that has drawn comparisons to The Silence of the Lambs

The Silent Daughter

Publication date: May 7th 2020
Genres: Adult, Psychological, Suspense

download (2)Synopsis:

Schoolgirl missing, the ticker reads, and the camera cuts to a girl’s face. Blonde hair waterfalling over her shoulders, serious eyes, lips a little parted like she’s about to speak. That’s when I realize I’ve been holding my breath, because the gasp when I inhale almost chokes me.

Sadie Kelly has lost her job. Until last month, she was a teacher at Horton College – the same high school she went to ten years ago along with her best friend, Fiona. But Fiona died in an accident on their graduation night, in circumstances Sadie’s spent the last ten years trying to forget, and since then nothing’s been the same.

Now Sadie’s back where she grew up, jobless, and living temporarily with Fiona’s mother. But when she hears that Devon Hundley, a Horton schoolgirl, has gone missing, everything changes. Devon’s the daughter of Philip Hundley, a man Sadie knows all too well, and Sadie can’t stop thinking about the last time she saw Devon. It was the day Sadie left Horton for good, and heard Devon murmur four little words as she walked away. Four words Sadie prayed she had misheard:

I know your secret.

A gripping page-turner for fans of Kerry Lonsdale, Diane Chamberlain, and Liane Moriarty.

download (3)AUTHOR BIO:

I’m an author who writes suspense stories about ordinary women – women like the ones we all know and love – who find out that their ordinary lives may not be quite so ordinary after all! My hope is that you will root for them, fear for them, and find yourself holding your breath when the action starts to get a little hairy!

When I’m not doing writing, I can be found strolling the streets of Brooklyn, New York City, my adopted home, dodging pigeons and traffic. I moved here a little over eight years ago – I hail from Ireland originally – and never looked back. To me there’s nothing more wonderful than that feeling of finding – or making! – a new home, that mixture of excitement at finding a place in the world, and the comfort of being able to come back to it time and again. That’s what reading feels like for me… and for you too I suspect! It’s also the same joy I get from writing. I hope my books can become a kind of home for you too: a place where you can trust that you’ll find a wonderful adventure, and then land safe and sound at the end of it all, ready to do it all again another day!
