My kids' school had their fall book sale; Sophia got a My Little Pony Early Reader book, Joshua got a Beast Quest book and a box of rocks (comes with a booklet to explain the different rocks). Then I picked up for both of them Women in Science: 50 Fearless Pioneers Who Changed the World and Poppy Field.

 

This weekend we will be out adventuring around our town, taking in the different activities going on for Remembrance Weekend. On Monday I am taking a trip to London to see Chicago the Musical; since I am not driving, I hope to get some reading while traveling. Glad I got my flu shot this week. 

 

With the Festive Task game underway, I am trying to catch up so I can add up my points for the doors opened so far. I am halfway through Let the Circle Be Unbroken and Princess Elizabeth's Spy, so they are the priority right now. Then it is on to A Gentleman's Game and Love's Unfading Light.

 

Happy Veterans' Day to my brothers and sisters in arms. Happy reading to everyone! See you all on Tuesday.

Hotter
Hockey Holidays - RJ Scott,Kat Mizera,Susan Scott Shelley,Melody Heck Gatto,Jennifer Lazaris,Jaymee Jacobs,Jean Joachim,Melanie Ting,Toni Aleo,Stephanie Kay,Lily Harlem,Kate Willoughby,Lisa B. Kamps,Jami Davenport,Stephanie Julian,Shannon Stacey

This 18 book collection by some of the most amazing authors was such a treat to read!  I loved the humor, heat, and you betcha - even the hockey that was represented in each story.  I have 2 book reviews that I am sharing from this collection for you below.

 

A Second Shot by Shannon Stacey:

 

Heartwarming and truly charming, this short and sweet story has us on our toes as we read about a couple who should be together, but have been apart.  Great read of sexy and fun. 

 

A Wolfe Brothers Christmas by Jami Davenport:

 

 

Little bit of suspense mixed in with a sweet holiday story that brings a lot of sexy charm to the table.  If you loved her men in their previous stories - you are going to be glad you grabbed this little bit of heaven.  I do recommend that you read the Game On In Seattle series first, however, to avoid spoilers.  Believe me this is worth it!  

 

Each short story included gives a unique and truly hockey flavored look at romance.  What I enjoyed most was that it gave me a chance to relax and enjoy love in my favorite sport.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review only.

What Can I Bring? Cookbook
What Can I Bring? Cookbook - Anne Byrn, Susan Goldman (Photographer)

I love this book! It has recipes for soups, cakes, meals, and snacks. This is great for when you go to a party and have to bring something. It is good for finding something that a person can bring to a friend or relative who has had surgery is just ill. I have found a copy and put it in my watch list on Amazon.

A River of Silence by Susan Clayton-Goldner
A River of Silence - Susan Clayton-Goldn... A River of Silence - Susan Clayton-Goldner

This is book three in the Winston Radhauser mysteries and I fell in love with Wind in the first book Redemption Lake and could not wait to read this one. Being book three this however, is totally a stand alone and you are able to read without having read the previous books. (I haven’t read #2 yet)

 

A River of Silence sees the Detective get called in to investigate the death of a child. this truly must be any law enforcement worst nightmare when it involves a child and even more so when you are responsible to find out all the facts and determine who or what caused the death.

 

Radhauser is one of those detectives you can’t help but love, from his cowboy hat right down to being a straight up good cop, he ensures that no stone goes unturned to get to the bottom of the truth even if means putting his job on the line. The suspect Caleb Bryce is racked with guilt over Skylar’s death that Radhause believes he is innocent, but pressure from he Chief see him having to arrest him for murder, but he does everything in his power to try and help prove that Bryce is as innocent as he believes him to be.

 

This is a tale that will really pull on your emotions seeing how it involves a child, and as the evidence is presented and the list of suspects grow you will be shocked when you learn the truth.

 

A 5 star mystery read for sure from Clayton-Goldner and I can’t wait to read more of Detective Radhauser.

The Woman in Black - audiobook
The Woman In Black - Susan Hill

 

 

It was nine-thirty on Christmas Eve.

-first sentence

 

 

This is a dark, gothic, ghost story. The narrator, Arthur, recounts his experience at Eel Marsh house with the Woman in Black and how it changed his life forever. The story has haunted him for years and by writing it down, he hopes to be able to forget.

 

Arthur goes to Eel Marsh house to settle the estate of a reclusive old woman. At first, he tries to find reasonable explanations for the noises coming from the empty marsh. Then he realizes that what he hears is an echo of something that happened years before.

 

This is a slow moving story that gradually builds suspense and fear. The house is isolated on a marsh that can only be reached at low tide (it reminded me of The Elementals in that sense). As in that story, the isolation makes Arthur's experience even more terrifying. 

 

The audio is well done and I enjoyed listening. At 4 hours and 33 minutes, it is one of the shorter audiobooks I've listened to, but it didn't exactly fly by. It's a good story, but a bit on the old-fashioned side for me.
