This chilling mystery is set in northern Minnesota, among the Ojibwa, on Red Earth Reservation. Renee LaRoche walks the edge of the blade between white and Ojibwa culture to find a killer. She gets more than she bargained for. This book covers so many topics (prejudice, child abuse, same sex relationship), yet it still tells a really good story! Would make an excellent cop TV series! #mnauthor #readin24

I am late to the party on this one! Love the 80s references! This was a really great scifi, love story, action filled, novel. It did drag briefly in the middle but jumps back in with both feet.

Wow!! Hold on to something this book will take you for a ride!! It's tangled and twisted. Just when you think you know what is going on...you don't expect the new plot to be thrown in. I won't say how I feel about the ending because that could give it away. Well worth the time to read. Although once I started it was a race to the finish.

The Confederacy was on the wrong side of history and humanity. It sought to tear apart our nation and subjugate our fellow Americans to slavery. This is the history we should never forget and one that we should never again put on a pedestal to be revered."

This book isn't just about the removal of the statues. This book is about race, class, and yes the removal of the monuments. It's historical references cover southern American history from the Civil War through 2018. So many quotes I could share...

This was a story about friendship and overcoming obstacles that spans time and distance. The setting includes America, Paris, and Russia. It begins around 1914. If you enjoy historical novels you will like this novel by Martha Hall Kelly. #netgalley

Winicker and the American Boy | Renee Beauregard Lute
post image
Pickpick

This is a great story about a group of young girls learning how to stand up for themselves and that telling an adult is not always tattling. Winicker and her Paris girl friends meet Roger. He's a prankster and leads them into serious trouble. There's also a bit about feeling left out and including others. Love the use of French there's not a lot but cool kids can read other languages. (Glossary in back of book.)

This was an interesting but technical read about some of the architects, rulers, and leaders that changed and develop the city to eventually lead to modern day Paris. It was full of good info. 2 drawbacks: a bit dry and ends in the late 1800s. Really liked the time line piece in the book.

Diane's life is drastically changed in one moment. What makes this book a good read is that Diane finds her footing and in doing so finds herself.

This is a facinating account of the battle for La Fiere Bridge. The accounts are from soldiers, non combatants, and German soldiers. Ste. Merry Eglise in June 1944 was a key point for the allied forces and ultimately the success of D-Day. Written by someone who was there.

This was a sweet romance...but I didn't find it a gripping storyline. In fact most of the time the writing bounced around as though it was a part of the game show in the book. The romance part of the book was sweet. The part about searching for Byrony's sister wasn't a strong enough portion of the story with a a haphazzard character development of Hannah. #netgalley gave me a free preview, thank you!

Goodbye, Paris: A Novel | Anstey Harris

Mehso-so

Truthfully I have a love hate relationship with this book. I loved the 'trio' of characters and where they ended up, their interaction with each other and others. Grace has really low self-esteem. She builds as the novel progresses. I hated how many times she took it in the chin from her man. The rating for the book this time is hard at times it pans, it has so so moments, and has pick moments.

One of the best novels I've read in a long time! Setting wine country, France. Kate comes to learn more about the Burgundy vintages and to help with les vendanges. She has many discoveries a secret room, WW II resistance info, a hidden stash of wine, and a long lost aunt who was either part of the resistance or a Nazi collaborator. She discovers so many secrets and discovers where she truly belongs! Gobbled this right up!

I feel like I have been reading this series forever. Shapeshifters, vampires, bad cops, good cops, physchics, metaphysical...let's face it this series has got all things supernatural. This novel was better than the previous two in the series (in my opinion), and was a nail bitter until the final 1/4 of the book. Then it was a bit anti climatic, for me. Still a good read!

This addition to the Lucas Davenport series, was much improved over the previous novel. It had a great plot. Still the Minnesota ties I love about the earlier books. The character development of the series from cop to Federal Marshall was also improved.

Even though I guessed a major plot, not too far into the book. I still really liked the story of a young woman who, through following clues left by her deceased Uncle, finds not only the answer but her path as well.

I thought I had the skinny figured out on this book. However, there was a sub-plot twist that through me for a loop. A creepy good plot. The very end wasn't quite as surprising. Good nonetheless.

This book, told from the perspective of Maddie, doesn't just focus on the big C. Although it was an important part of the story. It also includes friendship, including others, and a touch on bullying.

Really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the next in the series. However I was not impressed with the cover. The woman looks great but if this is Hugh it looks like he's missing an eye.

Wow! I've seen some of the other reviews for this that say "this isn't Hugh's book." It totally is. Hugh is thrown to the dogs (pun intended) and only finds purpose as a protector. He sets up his defense by approaching Elara. No one quite knows what she is. Only that she has strong magic. Love the back story you get for Hugh and the developing story of him and Elara. Some great links to the Daniels series. I won't give them away.

The author's note states that she didn't know if this book was bizarre or brilliantly bizzare. I haven't decided...not at all what I expected! A woman's daughter is missing, a family changed forever from her loss. Laurel Mack is now coming out of the shell of ice she has built around herself. It has been 10 years since her daughter disappeared. The author uses first person voice to tell the story that is chilling with an ending that ...Ufda!

This was a quick read. I hadn't read Terri Blackstock for quite awhile before this series. I enjoyed it, and this novel as well. This is not a stand alone, in my opinion. In order to get the ins and outs of the series it should be read in order. Casey Cox is on the run from corrupt police who may or may not have killed her father. Though many doubt her innocence, others help to investigate the truth in a labyrinth of corruption.

Journalist Fiona Sheridan has questions about her sisters death. Her sisters body was found on the grounds of an all girls boarding school that has been closed for years. The answers to her questions bring discoveries that shakes Fiona and the town to it's core. The supernatural aspect of the story made it a slow starter but once the story took off it was a page turner! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

There's so much going on in this book! The two main characters a female bounty hunter and an ex-cop turned PI keep the story going in a fast paced twisted tale while searching for two missing girls. The writer also created awesome supporting characters. Not an easy read...but one that will keep you turning pages until the early morning!

Alone | Lisa Gardner
Pickpick

This book is supposed to be #1 in the D.D. Warren series. The story does touch on her intro, description, and she pops in for brief investigative updates, and for the finale. I totally didn't identify her as the main character. Bobby Dodge was in my mind the main character of the book. That being said, the book did have a creepy edge of your seat wonder what's next story. I find I'll read more of the series to see where D.D.'s character develops.

I love lists and journals. I also can never find a calendar that I really like that either doesn't have enough of what I want or too much wasted space. This book gives easy ways to do journaling. Basically it doesn't have to be perfect...just perfect for you.

lowellette I was so inspired by this book and have been dot journaling ever since. I checked on the circ a few weeks ago and all 3 holds were by librarians from libraries all around TdS. It‘s the new cardigan, I guess. 😄 2y
