not for me
Escaping Reality - Lisa Renee Jones

There was  a plain white envelope with her name on it . taped to the mirror. It hadn’t been there at the ladies room at Manhattan’s Museum of Art when she got there. Amy’s real name had been Lara but it had been changed  This was an charity event . It had been years since Amy had a flashback and she tried to fight it. But Amy is already there. The scent of smoke burns her nose. The sounds of blistering screams shreds Amy’s nerves. All the pain and heartache, the loss of all she had and will never have again threatens to overwhelm Amy. Amy shooves the wrenching memories away. She can’t let this happen in a public place. Not when Amy is certain danger is knocking at her door. Amy hears voices and grabs the envelope and quickly goes into a bathroom stall. The envelope said “ I found you and so can they. Go directly to JFK Airport and do not linger. Locker 111 will have everything you need,” Amy heart thunders as she takes in the signature - a triangle with something written inside. The same symbol on the arm of the stranger who saved Amy’s life and helped her start a new life and who made sure Amy understand that seeing the symbol means Amy was in danger and she had to run. Once again Amy will lose everything. After six years Amy dared to believe she was safe. Deep down Amy knew that wasn’t true. She had ;left her job  two months ago as a research assistant at the central library to work at the museum. Chloe- the only person Amy has allowed to be a friend- asked Amy where she had been. Then Amy remembers everyone near her could also be in danger. She slips out a door and gets a cab and goes to JFK Airport She finds the locker and it has a carry on roller suitcase and a small brown leather tote bag with a large yellow envelope sticking out of it. Then she finds the note there was money in the bank account and more will be put into the account as she needs it until she was fully settled. There was a new social security license, a new license, and passport. There was a complete history to remember and a resume and job history that will check out if looked into. Then the note told her to throw away her cell phone. The new one was registered under her new name and address. There was a plane ticket and the keys to an apartment . Toss all identification and don’t use her bank account or credit cards. Stay away from museums and her first name wouldn’t change and her last name would now be Reynolds. She was going to Denver. She thought she would get as much of ehr money as she could tomorrow out of her account so she has some of her own money.  Then she saw him, he was in a seat facing her. He -Liam-was one hundred percent focused on her. Lara/Amy house burnt to the ground and killed her whole family, the fire was not an accident and her father was the target. But whoever killed her father wanted her dead too. Amy had met Liam at the airport. Liam is a billionaire but he is also an architect. Liam is a man who is used to getting what he wants and he wants Amy. Amy knows this is just what she is suppose to avoid. But the more time Amy spends with Liam the more she wants to stay with Liam.

I couldn’t get into this book. Amy isn't supposed to get close to anyone especially someone that was scoping her out at the airport and wouldn’t take his eyes off her. Why run if she is willing to get so caught up with a stranger? SHe has managed to stay alive by doing what the guardians she has. Just makes no sense to me why not tell Chloe who she really is she let her become a friend. She had given up her whole life twice now all a sudden some strange guy and she is willing to let go of the way she has survived since the fire. Just made no sense to me so no longer enjoyed the book. I am sure others will enjoy this just wasn’t for me.

This School Year will be THE BEST!
This School Year Will Be the BEST! - Kay Winters,Renee Andriani

On the first day of school, new students are asked to tell what they want to happen during this school year! Some answers are reasonable, while others are crazy! Kindergarten-2nd grade would enjoy reading this book during the first few days of school. As a teacher, it is a good idea to ask the students to set goals for the year, so this would be a great way to introduce goal setting.

Dirty Rich Obsession (Dirty Rich, #3) by Lisa Renee Jones
Dirty Rich Obsession - Lisa Renee Jones

 

Come into my lair ...

With these two cutthroat personalities, it's hard to distinguish which is the spider and the fly. Jones has created a raging inferno of passion, betrayal and heartache. Reid is the quintessential bad ***. In business he takes no prisoners. In life he makes his own rules. Until he locks horns with Carrie West. Carrie will fight tooth and nail to save what's precious to her. Even if that means risking her heart. When you find yourself pulling an all nighter just to see how it ends, is when you know that you've stumbled on something good. Dirty Rich Obsession is addictive reading.

Disclaimer: A Novel - Renée Knight

Finding a mysterious novel at her bedside plunges documentary filmmaker Catherine Ravenscroft into a living nightmare. Though ostensibly fiction, The Perfect Stranger recreates in vivid, unmistakable detail the terrible day she became hostage to a dark secret, a secret that only one other person knew—and that person is dead.

Now that the past is catching up with her, Catherine’s world is falling apart. Her only hope is to confront what really happened on that awful day . . . even if the shocking truth might destroy her.

Amazon.com

 

 

 

A woman finds a mysterious book on her nightstand, nobody knows where it came from. When she starts to read, she discovers the book is about her and one of the most painful days of her life. She thought only one other person knew about that day and he's been dead for years. As she digs into investigating who is now after her, she finds her family torn apart and her life gradually & systematically destroyed bit by bit. Her son is also targeted.

 

The chapters alternate between the perspectives of documentary filmmaker Catherine (book recipient) and Stephen, an elderly widower whose voice gets mysteriously more and more angry and vengeful as the story progresses. What is he so upset about?

Pretty cool premise right? Well, I started this thing 2-3 times because it was having a bit of a slow start for me, ended up having a pretty good middle bit, but then Knight did something weird with one of the key players that basically changed their whole characterization for me in a nonsensical way. I don't think she wrote that character with enough depth to do that kind of 180 where it would make sense. Instead, it made me feel like she had a story idea, didn't know how to end it, so just rolled out the craziest curve balls she could think of, reasonable or not, and said be done with it...

 

The first twelve chapters read a little slow to me but Chapter 13 offers a few reveals that give the impression that the suspense is going somewhere. The story seemed to drag on a little longer than necessary, I thought... and then that damn character flip. 

 

SUPER disappointed with the ending chapters.
