Who is watching who? Suspense The Watcher by Ross Armstrong

Image result   To order your copy click here



This book to me was as a fine wine to be sipped and read at the pace the author set out as the story unfolds. I found it brilliant. Lily moves with her husband to a new apartment that gives a view of the building that is set to be demolished. Aiden, her husband is busy writing engrossed in his work this leaves Lily with not much to do besides her hobby of bird watching and watching the neighbors. One day it happened as Lily was peering through her binoculars she spies a murder. Her elderly neighbor Jean is dead. No spoilers here except for this.. Who is watching who? Now Lily's life is in danger. Written in first person with a style that makes you just drink in your reading. If you love mysteries and suspense you will love this. Be prepared this is written in first person one of the reasons I truly loved this! I did receive this for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Books for children for #SPRING2017





Photo   I have always been a reader. I remember going on vacation to visit my grandparents and packing tons of books. Reading is one thing that my mom and I have always shared. I enjoy reading about anything family friendly.
Yes, I even read children's books. We were sent 4 books for review from MacMillan Children's publishing group

Grand Canyon by Jason Chin
Science Comics Bats by Falynn Koch
Petal Power by Allan Drummond
Counting Sheep: Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet by Jacqueline Kelly. 

All of these were fun for review. Clay picked up The Science Comics Bats by Falynn Koch and I delved into the other books. One thing really nice about books for kids is that you can usually learn something. I loved reading and learning about the Grand Canyon and had a lot of fun reading Petal Power and Counting Sheep and learning from them. Excellent for homeschoolers, moms, kids, and to start your collection for summer reading. As stated above I did receive these books to share my honest review and no monies were exchanged.

Lisa Wingate's Before We were Yours #BOOKREVIEW

Before We Were Yours: A Novel by [Wingate, Lisa]     To order yours go click here



I was approached to read an ARC of Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. This is inspired by a true story based in the early 1940's. Rill and her sibling live in a houseboat along the Mississippi river. One day their father has to take their mother to the hospital in a hurry and while they were gone strangers come in and take all the children to an orphange. The story is heart breaking as you hear about how Rill tries to keep her family together.  We did receive this for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Let's go to Scotland!





Product Details

To order yours go go https://www.amazon.com/Happened-Scotland-Kilts-Quilts-ebook/dp/B01E4WAG0S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490260487&sr=8-1&keywords=It+happened+In+Scotland+by+Patience+griffin


This was a wonderful book taking me on an adventure to Scotland with a love story - you just can't beat it! With that -  Rachel marries the wrong guy! She is ready to walk down matrimony lane and right before the wedding she has a heart to heart with Brodie (Joe's - the husband- cousin). Brodie and Rachel discuss their undying love for each other only to have Rachel say I do to Joe a hour later. Joe and Rachel end up in the States after a brief marriage where Joe is unfaithful to Rachel - filing for divorce - Joe dies - a funeral and Rachel finds herself back in Scotland to visit the grandfather of her daughter (yep, Joe and Rachel had a baby) and on the scene comes a bitter and angry Brodie. The story is centered around Brodie and Rachel saying good bye to their past and starting over and growing as people to realize the whys of the past. You will pick this one up and not put it down until you are done! A 5 out of 5 stars! Loved it! I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

The Royal Nanny

        To order your copy https://www.amazon.com/Royal-Nanny-Novel-Karen-Harper-ebook/dp/B015CYFENQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1490258356&sr=8-1&keywords=The+Royal+Nanny




To be honest, I don't really follow the British Royals but for an occasional look here and there. After reading this book it has definitely made my interest in their lifestyle grow. Although The Royal Nanny by Karen Harper is a fiction, the background and research allows you to take a sneak peek into the lifestyles of the British Royal family. LaLa, as the children eventually call her is first of all employed as a under nanny and then is promoted to Head Nanny after she discovers that the Head Nanny is abusing the children. It was interesting to get the "feel" of what it must be like to be working for the Royals as well as to see the interaction between the children and the parents. The children are presented to the parents at 4 pm for Tea daily and if they get fussy they may be removed etc. To see the size of the servants quarters and to know there are private rooms. Everything is done in detail to be just so. I am looking forward to learning more about the Royal family after reading this book. I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.
