Uncertain Justice: Canadian Women and Capital Punishment, 1754-1953 - F. Murray Greenwood,Beverley Boissery

This is a quite interesting book. In general, the book is in chronological order though it does start with a modern case. The authors are looking at how Canadian justice treated women for about two hundred years. Various cases are studied in depth. The particular reason I brought this book was that I was looking at the story of La Corriveau, and this presents a very good historical context on that case.

It does help to have some basic historical knowledge of Canada, but outside of that, it is an easy enough read for the non-criminal justice major.

Capital Consequences Redemption, Revenge, Trust, Tranquility (The Capital Trilogy #2) - Dawn Wright

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

 

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

 

Well dawn you have got another excellent book out there

 

Meeting with these four girls there is always going to be backstabbing and someone always thinking there the better person and arguments galore

 

But with the friendship between amber and Emily really not resolved and Brooke finding it hard to live without Jackson.

 

And summer well she is in this bubble with Oliver but they are so stressed out and snapping each other that sometimes you need a breakaway. when things start to get on a rocky road especially when you get the surprise of your life and you have to do the decent thing and tell your current partner a difficult secret that you have been keeping for him ie Oliver.

 

The 2nd book had a lot of emotional things in the characters are amazing that dawn has wrote about.

 

I am not giving anything away as you will have to discover for yourself what happens in this book but I will say this Friendship is always there weather you are arguing or hugging or supporting that friend.

 

I am giving this book 5/5

REVIEW BY HELEN - Capital Encounters: Love, Loyalty, Freedom, Flings (The Capital Trilogy #1) by Dawn Wright
Capital Encounters: Love, Loyalty, Freedom, Flings (The Capital Trilogy #1) - Dawn Wright

When a promotion to junior recruiter affords her the chance to move across the bridge into DC, Summer—a free bird—quickly sheds her loner lifestyle after she meets, Emily, a class act whose heart is still tied to her ex-husband; Brooke, a career-driven woman looking for love who wants to have it all; and Amber, the fearless pianist who makes a living off her flings. 

Summer’s life begins to go as planned, until she meets a hot Cuban at a party who will change her life forever. What starts off as a “harmless affair” with Ruben Sotolongo, turns out to be a perilous situation as she struggles with her temptation to play with fire. Soon, Summer realizes that she must walk away from him before it’s too late. At the same time, Summer’s friends slowly find the tide turning against them. Brooke will have to face a deal breaker after finding love; after months of suffering, Emily’s chance at healing is threatened by an impediment least likely of all places; and when Amber accidentally betrays someone dear to her and underestimates the personality of a client, she realizes that her flings may not exactly be all fun and games. Will they make it out of the turmoil bruised and battered or stronger than ever?
