Ohio's Haunted Crimes
Ohio's Haunted Crimes: An Exploration of Ten Haunted Crime Scenes - Kat Klockow

I chose this title because I live in Ohio. I have a friend who is really into the paranormal. She researches everything, goes ghost hunting, and has even hundreds and possibly thousands of dollars on ghost detecting equipment. She swears she saw Big Foot in her backyard once. 

 

This is very well put together. I am impressed with the thorough research that had to go into this book. I have visited a few, quite a few, of the places mentioned. There was a good job done on catching the atmosphere and feel to the places. 

 

This is a must have for libraries, and those with an itch for paranormal who reside/have an interest in Ohio specifically. I will most definitely be purchasin a hard copy for both my friend and myself.

Half Moon Hill By Toni Blake $1.99 Wonderful Book!
Half Moon Hill: A Destiny Novel (Destiny, Ohio) - Toni Blake

A rugged loner and ex-biker-gang member, Duke Dawson is looking for some peace and quiet while recovering from an accident. But when Anna Romo comes wandering through his woods and into his cabin, she completely rocks his world. The last thing he expected or wanted was to find himself hungering after a woman whose eyes held hurt even deeper than his own . . .

 

Running from a troubled past, Anna is building a new life in Destiny. When she first meets Duke, she's terrified—but something about him calls to her very soul. The hard-bodied rebel is soon helping her turn her new home into a bed and breakfast, and close quarters quickly lead them into her bed. Their passion is palpable, but can she convince a man who has turned his back on life to take the biggest leap of faith of all and fall in love?

At the Edge of the Orchard
At the Edge of the Orchard - Tracy Chevalier

I wouldn't say this will be one of the best of 2016, but this is nonetheless a good book and a super fast read. Good historical fiction--fictional people doing real things in real places, with a few real people thrown into the mix.

Robert Goodenough is brought up, at least to age 9, in the Black Swamp area of Ohio. His family, from Connecticut, is trying to make a go of homesteading there in the 1830s. The need for 50 fruit trees to prove the claim is his father's biggest concern, as he loves the Golden Pippins his family orginally brought from England.

At age 9 Robert unexpectedly strikes out on his own. He moves around, regularly changing jobs, and he finally ends up in California. There he meets William Lobb, and becomes a tree collector, shipping trees and seeds to England. William Lobb was real, tree and seed collecting was really a thing, the sequoia dance floor and bowling alley trees are now part of Calaveras Big Trees State Park,  and the Black Swamp really was not a great place to homestead.

 

 

Summer 2010—this is the dance floor stump. It's huge, and I completely understand the sadness Robert Goodenough feels when he sees this use of such a magnificent tree.
