Fantastic
Meet A Rogue At Midnight (Midnight Meetings Book 4) - Gina Conkle

Meet A Rogue At Midnight by Gina Conkle is a fairly short historical romance, perfect for those with limited reading time.  Ms. Conkle has delivered a well-written book.  Jonas is visiting his grandfather.  Olivia is trying to do her father's work before everyone knows how sick he is.  Their story is loaded with drama, humor and sexy bits.  I enjoyed reading Meet A Rogue At Midnight and look forward to reading more from Gina Conkle in the future.  Meet A Rogue At Midnight is book 4 of the Midnight Meetings Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Witness (Guardian Series Book 1) - Piper Davenport

Witness by Piper Davenport is a contemporary romance.  Ms. Davenport has delivered a well-written, smooth read.  Bailey is drugged, kidnapped and beaten when she goes to a party with her friend.  Brock is an FBI agent.  Brock and Bailey's story is full of action, suspense, humor, awesome characters and sizzle.  I enjoyed reading Witness and look forward to reading more from Piper Davenport in the future.  Witness is book 1 of the Guardian Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

Review: The Fireproof Girl
The Fireproof Girl (Sophie Shields Book 1) - Loretta Lost

Wow. Prepare yourself for a roller-coaster of emotions when you pick up this fabulous book. I could not put it down and you won't want to either. The alternating timelines and narrators make a smooth transition from story to story filling you in on the sorted past of Sophie and Cole.

 

There is so much to unravel from their bond and love for each other that I don't think I would ever be satisfied with the amount of stories about them. The raw emotional power of the writing and the intricate descriptions of the minute details bring this story to life in a beautifully tragic way. I found myself lost in the writing and feeling the same things that Sophie experiences on her quest for answers.

 

I highly recommend you grab this amazing story, a hot cup of coffee, and a comfy chair that you won't want to get up from. You'll want to finish this in one sitting.

It begins

 

I had to look straight up into the sky to get this, so I really couldn't see much of anything.  The clarity of this picture was a big surprise.  There are only a few flowers right now, but the background shows a little hint of how pink/purple/lavender the branches will be in a few more days.

 

The individual flowers look almost like tiny orchids.  When more are blooming on the lower branches, I'll try to get some close-ups.

Insights into a cinephile
Nixon at the Movies: A Book about Belief - Mark Feeney

Mark Feeney's book is a difficult work to describe. At its core it provides its readers with an analysis of Richard Nixon's cinephilia, the consequences of which Feeney gleans in order to explain various aspects of Nixon's psychology. This he does in a series of interconnected chapter-length essays, the majority of which are built around a particular film Nixon watched during his time as president. Feeney uses his examination of these movies as a springboard for an extended exploration into specific aspects of Nixon's life and career, such as his relationship with Ronald Reagan or his time in Congress. Drawing upon his background as a film critic, he weaves together his examination into a study of the films themselves and their related works, which he breaks down not just to draw out the elements that relate to Nixon's life but to illuminate the America in which he lived.

The result is an engrossing read. Though Feeney provides no new details about Nixon's life or his time in office, he draws out connections that deepen our understanding of the man and provide some interesting interpretations of his character. It also has the effect of humanizing the 37th president in a way that that few other books have before, showing how, at his core, Nixon was a person who enjoyed losing himself in movies as much as anyone else. While this is not the first book people should seek out to learn about Richard Nixon, the originality of Feeney's approach and the insights it provides make it one that nobody seeking to make sense of the man can afford to neglect.
