A Hand to Hold, Grace Given
Amish Fiction: A Hand to Hold: The Good ... Amish Fiction: A Hand to Hold: The Good Samaritan (Amish Parables Book 1) - Grace Given,Pure Read

This was an interesting take on the Good Samaritan . I voluntarily chose to review this and I've given it a 4.5* rating. This is also book 9 of the Amish Christmas Books set. I must say that the guys were very open to try things. Is this a guy thing? Anyway, nice ending.

Good and Mad
Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women's Anger - Rebecca Traister

"Anger is an energy."

 

--John Lydon

 

"If you're not angry, you're not paying attention."

 

--Unknown

 

As Rebecca Traister points out in this book,  women are constantly discouraged from experiencing or expressing anger.  It's unattractive; it's not received well.  Female politicians who dare express anger are chided and/or ridiculed, while their male counterparts are lauded when they do so.  Women are told anger is unhealthy; it needs to be pushed down, or it needs to be sublimated.

 

But as Traister demonstrates, throughout history, women's righteous anger, when channeled into political action and organizing, has effected real change.  And many women who had never considering activism or politics have been mobilized by the excesses of the Trump regime, as well as systemic abuses of male power that have been exposed (so to speak) following the Harvey Weinstein revelations.  In 2018, women have run for political office in record numbers.

 

Traister encourages women not to suppress the anger, not to revert to silence and comfort, but to continue so that the current "moment" continues to become an ongoing movement.

 

This is an important book.  Angry women should read it for reassurance that they are not crazy; that they can use their anger in productive and healthy ways.  Women who are not angry should read it to understand why other women ARE angry and to consider why they themselves are not.  Men should read it to understand why women are angry and should not be talked out of it.  And if many of them can become allies, that would be great, too.

Double Delicious
Double Delicious!: Good, Simple Food for Busy, Complicated Lives - Jessica Seinfeld

Foods that are good and delicious but that take very little time to prepare. I like fast meals because sometimes I just need to be able to fix something quickly. Other times I like to make meals that take some time. This is on my list to buy.

Fun Read!
Tell Me Something Good (Entangled Lovestruck) - Jamie Wesley

Tell Me Something Good is a fun contemporary romance by Jamie Wesley.  Ms. Wesley has delivered a well-written book furnished with outstanding characters.  Tate hosts a sports radio program.  Noelle is a psychologist and works at the same station offering relationship advice.  Tate and Noelle's story is loaded with drama, humor and spice.  I enjoyed reading Tell Me Something Good and look forward to reading more from Jamie Wesley in the future.  Tell Me Something Good is book 1 of the One-On-One Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Firefighters are Water Fairies – All Good Things by Perry Prete @PerryPreteBooks
All Good Things - Perry Prete

 

I found Perry Prete through a blog tour and I am so glad I did. this is my second book of his to read and I have three more waiting on my Kindle for their turn, so stay tuned for more great stories.

 

How about the simple yet very effective on hooking me cover? What do you think?

 

Cover: Digiwriting

 

Publisher: Sands Press

Amazon  /  Goodreads

 

MY REVIEW

 

Perry Prete takes his real life work and twists it into fiction novels, giving his books the feel of being a true story.

 

I love Tom, Ethan’s hunky sweet partner. Does his job the way you wish everyone would. Tom is one special guy and, if I ever need an ambulance, I hope he shows up. He is a gentle caring, patient man. 

 

It started out a normal day at work, but not when we reached apartment 318. He, literally, stepped in it. He noticed something odd…it looked like an upside down cross brushed on the victim’s forehead. He felt the need to follow up on the call. He couldn’t let it go.

An upside down cross has many meanings, one of which is a public execution.

He found there was more than one curious death.

 

His bud, Galen, is the lead on the murder case. They are close friends, playing off each other. Galen is sort of a red headed British overweight Columbo. What a fabulous description is that. Makes it very easy to picture him, and we do see a lot of him.

 

The humor is understandable. Like anyone in a high stress job, humor helps people get through the bad. The urinal scene had me cracking up. Boys will be boys.

 

He was having fun with the killings, smiling while watching the police at the crime scene. The killing had now become sexual for him. He got off on it. He gets sicker with each passing moment. He had become…

 

He calls Ethan and the game is on. Why is he being singled out by the killer?

 

I got a bit of a rush from that ambulance ride.

 

Did you know that firefighters are water fairies? LOL

 

Oh man, there is so much sadness. The deaths become more gruesome as he comes into his own. And this may so sick, but I am enjoying it more. The darker, the more evil the villain becomes, the more I love him.

 

The pacing kept the suspense on an even keel, always there, endangering the characters. The more I get to know the characters, the more I like them, even the evil villain. I think Tom is my favorite though.

 

This is Perry Prete’s first novel and it was a great one. Very well done. I loved it. Some great characters, plenty of murder and mayhem, loss and love, danger and evil. I am not sure what’s missing. why am i not blown away, because it has all the thing I love…could it be romance? Of course, this is a series, so maybe he’s saving that. You know, a slow burn instead of a hot flash.

 

I look forward to reading more of his work, watching him grow as an author, creating more mystery and suspense, because…there is one question not answered. The story could end here, or, it could come to life in the next book.

 

I voluntarily reviewed a free copy of All Good Things by Perry Prete.
