Blue Farm - Charles C. Anderson

Blue Farm by Charles Anderson Have read #4 and 1 and 2 so going to enjoy this one also. Starts out with the twins and they are on their way to college, they bring their younger disabled brother Peewee along to get a feel for the campus. Peewee is kidnapped and they have to call their parents, who call the CIA and FBI. Days later they return home to find things scattered about which lead them to their brother's body. They talk and realize after seeing the camera pictures who is to blame. The twins are at college now and become friends with twins from Paris. Things become very intimate with both couples as they are learning about sex. Story goes on following the twins as they experience sex at college and also follows the parents at home as other clues come in to help them understand who is after their family still. Lots of very technical information about weapons of varying degrees. Lots of action, adventure, romance and travel and mysteries-something for everybody. Sexual adult actions and discussions.

Nuclear Farm - Charles C Anderson

Nuclear Farm by Charles Anderson Second book in the farm series and am enjoying this one as much as the first. Lots of travel, history battles studied to put into effect on their own farm-such strategies, high tech weapons, bit of romance mixed in with a mother who's a nuclear physicist, father who's a ER doc among other talents and a set of twins that at the age of 10 are ready for college. Love that the same characters are still in place, 10 years from the previous book and this starts up where the other left off so you are brought up to date on the happening around the farm and town of Farmville, VA Used to play Farmville on facebook and I can say it's nothing like this farm. Love caves and tunnels not to mention the toys and gold. Love hearing of how they are able to track down different components of this story. I can see this actually taking place in todays world of oil and nuclear weapons. Can't wait til twins are a bit older-next book coming up! Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.

Killer Jam by Karen MacInerney
Killer Jam (A Dewberry Farm Mystery) - Karen MacInerney

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I enjoyed this book. I was in the mood for a cozy mystery and really wasn't sure which one I wanted to read when I spotted this book in Amazon's Prime Reading. I actually had no idea that there were audiobooks included in the program but that is a whole other story. I decided to borrow this book and take a chance on it since it was the first in a series. It turned out to be a whole lot of fun in the end.

Lucy has just bought her grandmother's old farm in Buttercup, Texas. She really wants to make a go of it and is busy making jams and trying to contain her wandering cow. She runs into problems right away when a truck shows up on her property to look for oil. She learns that when she bought her farm the previous owner, Nettie, retained the mineral rights and there isn't much that she can do to stop her from looking for oil.

I guess pretty early on that Nettie was probably not going to be around for very long. I couldn't stand her character and kind of wanted her to come to a quick end myself. The sheriff is convinced right away that Lucy must be responsible and really doesn't work to hard to actually look for any evidence so it is up to Lucy to prove that she is innocent.

The mystery kept me guessing and I was really never quite sure who the villain would be in this story. There was actually a lot to this story in addition to the mystery. Lucy's best friend is dealing with a difficult situation and Lucy does her best to help. There is even a bit of romance with the local vet who seems to be a pro at catching wandering cows. I loved that there was a touch of humor spread throughout the book.

I enjoyed the narration in the end. This is the first time that I have listened to Teri Clark Linden and it did take me a little bit to get used to her style of narration but that is actually pretty normal for me. Once I really got into the story, I really enjoyed the narration. I think she did a great job with all of the different voices in the story and her pacing was perfect. I would definitely listen to her narration again in the future.

I would recommend this book to fans of cozy mysteries. I thought that this was a fun story filled with some really great characters. This was the first time that I have read any of Karen MacInerney's work and look forward to reading more of this series in the future.

Initial Thoughts
I enjoyed this book. At first, I wasn't sure that the narration was going to work for me but after a bit, I really started to enjoy it. The mystery was complex enough that I never quite had things figured out and I really liked the characters. I am glad that I picked this one up.

Book Source: Amazon Prime Borrow

The Farm - Charles C. Anderson

The Farm by Charles Anderson
I had read book 4 in this series and loved it so much I went and bought the first 3 books and just now getting to them.
This story starts out with Josiah and his buddy Andy exiting a crashing helicopter but he doesn't make it. Carlson will still continue the mission and does on his own but doesn't find what he was expecting.
Later he's at his night job in the US at the ER and he comes across a few Saudi Arabia princes who have been beat up-they will be returning home now that classes are over for the summer months. Problem is his RN Lindsey will be going with him to the farm for 3 days and they discover something not quite right.
Thing is we hear Lindsey's side to the story also and Andy is clueless, so far but he knows things are not adding up.
Love all the technology, weaponry and discovering the hidden treasures at the farm.  Love the history in this book about the area.
Lots of action, travel, adventure and romance and I learn so much about things I don't have a clue about. US and other countries are involved and he is gathering the clues to solve the mysteries.

Animal Farm & 1984 - George Orwell,Christopher Hitchens

Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.

 

George Orwell

 

June 8, 1949: George Orwell's dystopian classic, Nineteen Eight-Four, was published 68 years ago today. The popularity of the book led to our adoption of the term "Big Brother" as shorthand for a surveillance state.
