4 Star Blue Blood
Blue Blood for Life - Stacy Eaton

 

Kristin is happier than she’s been in a long time and her new status in life has her solving crimes faster and better than she ever could before. Although, her life with Alex is having a bit of trouble due to her reluctance to complete the transition. Then her two worlds collide when Alex goes missing and she’s having to deal with the emotions that are threatening to overwhelm her. Her house is filling up with people who want to help her, a strawberry blond woman appears at all the wrong times and Trent and Gabe have entered the picture to help with the search.

 

Kirsten’s life has become even more complicated with some stunning twists and turns that readers certainly don’t see coming. Secrets are revealed, bad guys seem to be abundant and while Alex missing, the other guys in her life seem determine to help her in a way that will either prove to be a great thing or prove to destroy her life with Alex. Emotions run high and are quite turbulent throughout this story and readers can’t help be become caught up in all the turmoil. This series definitely has to read in sequence to get the full understanding of what’s happening and to get the most enjoyment, but one thing is for certain, this fast paced plot never has a dull moment as the passions and chemistry explode and the danger escalates throughout this exhilarating and life altering story.

Just a Guy: Notes from a Blue Collar Life
Just a Guy: Notes from a Blue Collar Life - Bill Engvall,Alan Eisenstock

 

I Picked Up This Book Because: Curiosity.

The Story:

Bill seems to be the definition of an all american guy. He grew up in a great time when kids went out to play and tv and movies were a treat. He had his bumps and bruises along the way, both literally and figuratively. I enjoyed hearing his story. From the time in the little league dugout to the frat parties to the beginning of his family.

The Random Thoughts:



The Score Card:

Voices of the Earth - Life Lessons from a Blue Planet by Adam Chapuis
Voices of the Earth - Life Lessons from a Blue Planet - Adam Chapuis
This book is simply amazing. A blend of science and spirituality, you go from quantum physics to Buddhist principles. Exceedingly well written, with enough information to make you think without overloading you. Voices of the Earth encourages you to take notice of things you take for granted. With everything from evolution to shamanism, and quite a bit in between, this is an eye-opening book, filled with information both generic and personal. 
 
Absolutely recommended by me for anyone with an interest in the Earth.
 
* Verified Purchase - January 2013 *

A Police Officer's Work and Personal Challenges
Turning Blue: A Life Beneath the Shield - Lawrence Hoffman

Turning Blue: A Life Beneath the Shield provides the autobiography of an author who longed to wear a uniform and be part of an organization: a desire that would lead him from ball games and Scouts to joining the NYPD force in 1984, there to become a veteran police detective.

 

In contrast to many police stories which recount crime encounters and department politics, Turning Blue offers a satisfyingly different approach in documenting not only street encounters and detective work, but how this work is absorbed into an officer's psyche, belief system, and everyday life outside of the force.  Turning Blue is at its strongest when depicting this process, which takes stories of detective work and juxtaposes them with personal insights on how challenges to psychological and physical survival are reconciled with life-altering events and tragedies.

 

There are stories of struggle and strife; but these are contrasted with touching moments of kindness which serve to emphasize that an officer's work is not all about conflict and confrontation.

 

From Columbian drug dealers to team operations, descriptions are precise and sometimes include a surprising touch of humor: "Generally, these things never go as scheduled. Most criminals have no concept of time, and it annoys the shit out of me.  Is it too much to ask that you sell me my illegal guns and controlled substances at the agreed upon time? As narcotics cops, we are completely regulated by time."

 

These insights blend with Hoffman's family life and personal perspectives to provide a well-rounded coverage highly recommended for anyone who enjoys police protocol and true-crime accounts, adding a healthy dose of psychological depth that many police stories lack, making for a highly recommended, engrossing read.

BLUE ANGEL BY DONALD SPOTO
Blue Angel: The Life of Marlene Dietrich - Donald Spoto

”It is a woman’s job to sense the hungers in men and to satisfy them without, at the same time, giving so much of herself that men become bored with her. It is the same with acting. Each man or woman should be able to find in the actress the thing he or she most desires and still be left with the promise that they will find something new and exciting every time they see her again.” Marlene Dietrich

Marlene Dietrich was obsessed with lighting her whole career. She always demanded a full length mirror to be just off stage so she could check to see if the lighting was perfect.
