Deader Homes and Gardens (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries, #4) by Angie Fox
Deader Homes and Gardens - Angie Fox

This is the 4th book in the Southern Ghost Hunter Series, by Angie Fox. This is also the 4th book in this series I have read. I really like Angie Fox's writing style. I love how with each book in the series get more and more intense. This is also a fun series to read, It is full of down home southern charm.

In this book Verity gets a phone call from Lee Treadwell. He asks if she is still hunting ghosts. Verity finally has her first paying client. Her reluctant partner Frankie, the ghost of a gangster who Verity trapped on her property in book 1, is not very happy about the job. He is bored and wants to hang with is old friends who are now ghosts as well. Verity and Frankie make a deal That he can use the back porch to visit with his friends if he helps her. Frankie takes advantage of this deal. He transfers the ghost seeing power to Verity and sends her out on her own.

The Treadwell Mansion has set empty for decades. Te family that lived there all passed away one after another in the house. The Man of the house was a archaeologist and excavated a Egyptian tomb. Soon after he arrived home the whole family passed away. They are all haunting the house along with the Governess, who was the only resident to live.

Lots of very dangerous things happen while Verity is investigating. She almost dies a couple of times. Can she find out hat happened to the family? Can she banish the bad spirit? Can she come out alive?

You can read this series as a stand alone but it is much better to read it as a series.

Wow, just wow
Fairy Homes and Gardens - Ashley Rooney,Barbara Purchia

Disclaimer: ARC via Netgalley.

 

                This largely a showcase of magnificent art with little text.

 

                But oh my god, the artwork.

 

                Fairy Houses are increasing in popularity, and this book showcases several different designs in different settings as well as focuses on the small touches such as doors. There are also brief bios of the various artists in the back of the book. The book seems to be geared towards parents or grandparents and children, possibly as the impetus to start such a project. What text is present is engaging and informative. Each picture’s caption not only details the artist but the materials used.

 

                The houses showcased run a wide range. I found Sally J. Smith’s to be the most impressive, simply because she uses natural elements, making her houses more ephemeral in look and reality. For instance, Smith constructed a fairy house simply from maple leaves and thread. And boy is it impressive. There are other houses that are a combination of natural work and doll house props. There are houses made in the middle of the woods and on the beach.  There is a beautiful book one.  I loved that one.  Each work is impressive and detailed. A reader can lose hours looking at the pictures and drooling with desire.

Review of "Better Homes and Gardens Country Cooking"
Better Homes and Gardens Country Cooking (Better Homes & Gardens Books) - Better Homes and Gardens

Moving review from amazon now that my kindle account is banned from posting after commenting on author review circles. 

 

Review text:

 

Does contain lots of traditional favorites (including tips on basics such as stock, pickling, etc.) such as Chicken and Dumplings Stew, Deep Dish Chicken Pie, Tuna Noodle Bake, ye old jello molds, puddings, potato salads, newburgs, pickled eggs, anddeep dish apple pie. No shopping trips to special grocery stores. Nice, hardbound edition with color photos, 92 pages plus index.

 

One drawback: no nutrition information (unless I just managed to overlook).

Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book 15th Edition: Gifts from the Kitchen (Better Homes & Gardens Plaid)
Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book 15th Edition: Gifts from the Kitchen - Better Homes and Gardens Of the over a couple of dozen cookbooks in our shelves, this general cookbook is one of the ones we've used the most over the years, certainly in the top four. Of those four, this is my go-to cookbook, the one I find easiest to use when I'm looking for basic recipes. The section tabs make it very easy to find recipes--especially since there's an index of each section's recipes on the section cover page. Inside covers with such information as Weights and Measures and Substitutions, as well as sections featuring "Special Helps," "Meal Planning and Nutrition" and "Table Settings and Entertainment" make sure useful information is at your fingertips. Classic cookbook that makes a very good introduction to cooking. Easier to use than the much lauded Joy of Cooking.
