This sweeping saga of the Meahuna family from WWII to Hawaii‘s statehood is still in my #TBR but I will get to it one of these days. 📚📚📚😬📚📚As it centers around a local 🌺 jazz musician looking for his soul mate after war has torn them apart it seemed to fit the #SingItBack prompt. In the book jazz music is referred to as “the tongue of the exile.”
#SingItBack in this mystery series set in North Carolina - the police chief of the town is also the choir director of his local Episcopal Church. He also really wants to be a mystery writer. Murder happens, in the choir loft no less, and so the police chief is on the case.
My mom gave me her copy - she didn‘t like it. But, everyone else I know who has read this book thinks the series is hilarious. 🤷🏻♀️ I‘ve yet to read it... #ayupaugust
#AyUpAugust Playing catch-up 😉Lots of #TaintedLove in this deeply contemplative story of a family on the brink of implosion. It‘s not an easy read but I‘m taking my time & allowing the authors‘ tone to simmer & boil.
My little song will keep you beside me
Thinking your name as I sing 🎶
