This was definitely the quirkiest bunch of characters I've ever seen all in one book. 

Roseanna is a high powered attorney who snaps when her best friend and law partner suddenly dies. She decides to go for a ride in her Maserati and winds up buying a piece of property that includes 76 acres near the Adirondack Mountains.

No only does Roseanna get those 76 acres with hills, creeks, a barn and a small guesthouse, she also gets squatters. 

It's a story about a lot of things including finding yourself, finding and connecting with your adult son again, helping others, and love in many phases.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and getting to know these quirky characters. I chuckled many times while reading this book. Definitely entertaining!

Thanks to Lake Union Publishing and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Review: The Black Tides of Heaven
The Black Tides of Heaven - JY Yang

I'm very interested in the setting and worldbuilding, but not super invested in the protagonist. There's just a certain lack of intensity? Something? But there are also raptors and magic. I may still pick up the sequel.

The rest of this is an excerpt from the next companion novella, and the truth is that I'm just not feeling this world or these characters.   No, that's not true, I nearly cried a couple times so I'm responding to this emotionally. 

 

I just am not into the world enough and am not emotionally invested enough to want to read the excerpt.   Excellent writing, excellent world building, excellent plot, just not my thing. 

 

Full review to come later.

Yay!   The raptors finally show up.  I think I'll end up finishing this, and then finishing the McGuire novella, and then River of Teeth. 

 

I got caught up in this and it seems silly to stop reading this now.

"Here, too, were the raptor enclosures...the animals yipped excitedly, teeth and claws shining int eh gloom."

 

 

Are there raptors?  Like Jurassic Park raptors?   If there are, I'm suddenly way more interested.
