Reconstructing Jackson by Holly Bush
Reconstructing Jackson - Holly Bush

1867 . . . Southern lawyer and Civil War veteran, Reed Jackson, returns to his family’s plantation in a wheelchair. His father deems him unfit, and deeds the Jackson holdings, including his intended bride, to a younger brother. Angry and bitter, Reed moves west to Fenton, Missouri, home to a cousin with a successful business, intending to start over.

Belle Richards, a dirt poor farm girl aching to learn how to read, cleans, cooks and holds together her family’s meager property. A violent brother and a drunken father plot to marry her off, and gain a new horse in the bargain. But Belle’s got other plans, and risks her life to reach them.

Reed is captivated by Belle from their first meeting, but wheelchair bound, is unable to protect her from violence. Bleak times will challenge Reed and Belle's courage and dreams as they forge a new beginning from the ashes of war and ignorance.

Good Story and Characters
Dangerous Behavior - Nancy Bush

Sam had gotten a text from his brother Joe and it said “ meet me at my dock at noon”. Sam and Joe had a rift and it grew over the years and they didn’t speak much anymore so Sam was surprised by the text. Sam answered with a text and said he couldn’t make even though he really could have. But he didn’t hear back from Joe. Sam had quit his job as a Seaside cop for a job in Portland for a better job but then someone with power took the job and left Sam without a job. Sam could have went back and got his job back at Seaside but he didn’t know if he wanted to. Joe didn’t answer any of Sam’s further texts so he drove to Joe’s house but no one answered him at Joe’s house. Also Joe’s boat was nowhere at the dock. Sam headed toward the bay when no one showed up by 12:45. Then Sam put a call into his ex partner Giff. They had been partners for five years. Sam drove to the sharp cliffs that reached into the ocean. It had created an isolated beach that you could only reach at low tide. Then Sam saw a shoe bobbing in the waves. Then Sam jumped in and pulled the woman to shore and gave her CPR and she finally brought up a bunch at ocean water from her lungs. The woman was Jules where was Joe. Julia/Jules was Sam’s ex girlfriend and she married Joe - Sam’s brother. Sam and Jules had been sweethearts in school but broke up and Julia ended up relying on Joe in some difficult times in her life. Joe’s body is found a couple of days later and Sam is determined to find out what happened and who took his brother’s life. When Jules finally comes to in the hospital she has no memory of anyone or anything including her husband Joe but she does remember loving Sam. Then there is a man and woman perfect for each other. They love to kill for thrills and love getting paid by an anonymous old man.

This was a great thriller  and I enjoyed reading this. This book keeps  your attention from the very beginning of the story to the end. This story had you sitting on the edge of your seat. I loved how Sam was so determined to find out what happened to Joe his brother.  I also liked how we were kept guessing who the killers were. The only thing that bothered me was how Sam and Jules had been brought up a lot that Sam and Julia had been in love when her husband was dead and under mysterious situations.She had been left to die also. I liked the plot and the characters and I loved the twists and turns and I recommend.

Unpacking "Chuck": The TV Series Interpreted - G. Walter Bush

if I had started this book this morning, this would have been a "read in one day" book, because it's so short and quite fun to read; but of course I was finishing that Murder Mystery before work, and did not embark on this until this evening. so, with a bit of tiredness coming on, any vague thoughts I had about getting to the end of Unpacking "Chuck" before sleepy-time have flickered out. I'll wrap this up early tomorrow, and then it's on to Suicide Squad.

Unpacking "Chuck": The TV Series Interpreted - G. Walter Bush

this is all making me want to watch the series again --but I dunno; is supposed to be Futurama for me, after Prison Break. Chuck again, soon, though...

Unpacking "Chuck": The TV Series Interpreted - G. Walter Bush

years ago, box sets of Seasons of Chuck were on sale at the DVD store, when there were still DVD stores. anyway, at that price I took a chance and bought Season 1. I figured I would find the show silly, and maybe kind of offensive if the woman spy was amazing, while she endured this male dunce named Chuck. so I watched Episode 1, and I loved the show from then on. and I confess right now to falling hard for Yvonne Strahovski. I used to end up over at my best friend's place, with DVDs to watch, and I persuaded him to watch Episode 1 of Chuck. "Even if you don't like the show--and I didn't think it was going to be my kind of humour--and you don't want to see any more episodes..that's fine. But you should see this woman.". Well--there's my friend, as Yvonne Strahovski's face comes on screen for the first time (and he worships Michelle Pfeiffer, so there is normally no room for any other celebrity crushes), and all I hear is "Wow. Is that the woman who is on every week?! What is her name? Wow.".

 

we watched every episode. we both love "her", but truly, it emerged as one of my favourite shows regardless. admittedly, if YS had left the show midway through, or something horrible like that, it would have seared us both--but I would have watched anyway, because Chuck's growth as a person and as a spy with a conscience, was amazing, the humorous spy adventures are all very creative, and Iove the show.

 

I did not know about this boo, and its follow-up, but my best friend gave me them for my birthday, and has copies himself. shall be fun revisiting Chuck. no pictures, though--damn.
