Danielle H. gives “Romance Recipes for the Soul” by Frank Cabiroy 4 stars:
I enjoyed this book. I got a few ideas.
Oliver D. read “One False Move” by Harlan Coben:
Good story with plot twists. Interesting dialogue.
Danielle H. read “From Me to You – Homemade Gifts” by Mari Belta and rated it one star:
I thought the gift ideas would cost too much to make.
Heather H. read What to Expect When Expecting:
[The book] was very educational. [It] gave me a lot of insight into hat I will be experiencing through my pregnancy, during labor, and afterwards. Also gave my fiancé tips on how to handle me and my labor.
Oliver D. read True Detectives by Jonathan Kellerman:
[The book was] well written, [had] good characters, and a nice plot twist.
Heather H. shares her thoughts on The Night We Said Yes
It was a very good book. Romantic. However, I did not like how the author would switch from past to present every chapter. It gives readers hope of second chances with love. And if its meant to be, it’ll happen.
Saudy E. says Between the Tides by Patti Callahan Henry was
very good. Holds your attention. Some likeable characters, some not so. Surprise ending!
Nancy G. states The Fireman by Joe Hill was a good read.
Fern M. says When We Were Sisters by Emilie Richards was a:
Good book. I learned more about the foster child system that I hadn’t known.
Judy D. read The Healing Quilt by Wanda Brunstetter:
Reading one of Wanda’s books always lights my heart and faith.
We are very excited to have 75 readers signed up at this time! The winner of this week’s drawing is Kay Dennis. Congratulations, Kay!
Donna H. read James Patterson’s The Murder House and had this to say; This book keeps you interested. The ending had a twist to it, and made you try to figure out the killer.
Phyllis Y. says of Lori Copeland’s A Case of Bad Taste; The old lady is very high-spirited, like to have her spunk. Tastefully written though called A Case of Bad Taste.
Fern M. tells us that America’s First Daughter is a bit lengthy, but never boring. I learned a lot about Thomas Jefferson and his family. This book is written by Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie.
Sandy E. reported on Justice for Sara written by Erica Spindler. Love her books and this one held my attention to the very end which was unexpected. Did not expect the outcome.
Several of our patrons have taken the time to review the books they are enjoying this summer. Perhaps, one of these will help you when you make your next selection.
From Sandra D.: A Dry Creek Courtship by Janet Tronstad
This story is about an elderly couple, both widowed that had been friends for 50 years. They lived in a small town, so everybody knew everything. Charlie wanted to be more than just friends with Edith – he wanted romance. When Charlie proposed to he, she misunderstood and turned him down. There were other twists to the story that held my interest…
From Michelle C.: Low Country Summer by Dorothea Benton Frank
Dorothea Benton Frank doesn’t disappoint. Low country Summer contains triumphs and tragedy of a southern family in their ancestral estate. Dysfunctional entanglements challenge the main character, who is a flawed, yet strong woman, as she steps into a newly vacated matriarchal position.
Linda W. shares: The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick
Great book! Very entertaining and different. You take a journey with the main character. Loved it!
From Nancy G. : Don’t You Cry by Mary Kubica
Dorothy K. shares: Blue Shoes and Happiness by Alexander McCall Smith
The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is still bringing insight and humor to their daily encounters with the beautiful people of Botswana, faults, problems and all!
