"Charm School Night Play:  Lesson 3  by Lynn Carmer


My Thoughts.....

 

I found this novel a very good read where you will find Athena one control person that will find at times  leave you shaking your head.  And then their was Tommy who you may find him him losing his temper at times but when it came to what he wanted he would definitely be found going after it and not taking no for a answer.  I did find several scenes that had me laughing so very hard.  Yes, this was quite a enjoyable read.  I liked the way this author wrote and separated the l's.  I could read it and thoroughly understand the story quite well and even thinking it was uniquely done. 

I found most of the characters somewhat complex but still so very interesting that will definitely keep you turning the pages to see what is coming next.

 

So, will Athena finally get the happiness she so well deserved?  With these two having that sizzling chemistry will they both who have had some many personal problems be able to finally get their HEA?  To find out you will have to pick up "Charm School Night Play:  Lesson 3" to find out.  Would I recommend?  YES!

A STORY TO KILL by Lynn Cahoon
A Story to Kill (A Cat Latimer Mystery) - Lynn Cahoon

Sets up the series of Cat opening a bed and breakfast and hosting a writer's conference monthly.  At her first one, one of the guests is killed.  Now, to save her business, she needs to find out why and whodunit. 

 

I enjoyed the story.  I also liked how some of the characters' backstory was slowly given.  I did not figure it out until the end nor the why.  It was interesting.  I was also intrigued to discover that there may be an overarching story lines between books.  I want to see how that plays out.  Can't wait to read the next book, which I have.

Wie die Christen Holland gegründet haben
Töchter der Küste - Lynn Austin,Dorothee Dziewas

Zwei Frauen aus unterschiedlichen Generationen ringen hier mit ihrem Glauben an Gott. Sie wissen, was richtig und was falsch ist, aber im Leben ist es oft nicht so einfach, auch das Richtige zu tun. 

Geesje flüchtet mit ihrer Familie aus den Niederlanden nach Amerika. Dort hat sie mit vielen Schicksalsschlägen zu kämpfen, die ihren Glauben auf eine harte Probe stellen. Nicht immer trifft sie die richtigen Entscheidungen und nicht immer fragt sie nach Gottes Willen und bereut es später bitter.Viele Jahre später hört sie von der jungen Anna, die ebenfalls vor einer wichtigen Lebensentscheidung steht und ihre Hilfe braucht...

Die Geschichte wird ruhig und nachdenklich erzählt, ist dabei aber niemals langweilig. Geesje erzählt in Rückblicken von ihrem abenteuerlichen Leben, immer wieder unterbrochen durch die Geschehnisse rund um Anna in der Gegenwart. Das ist sehr spannend geschrieben, obwohl klar ist, dass diese beiden Erzählstränge irgendwann zusammen finden. Man erfährt viel über die damalige Zeit, als das Örtchen Holland in Amerika gegründet wurde und wie die kleinen freien Gemeinden in Europa sich gegen die Verfolgung der Kirche schützen mussten. Viele christliche Gedanken sind dabei wunderbar in die Story eingewoben worden. Es geht darum, sich selbst zurückzustellen und Gottes Willen zu tun. Und darum, dass Gott allein weiß, was gut für uns ist und uns in unserem Leben führen will.

Mir bleibt nur wiederum festzustellen, dass Lynn Austin einfach fantastische christliche Bücher schreibt, die einen emotional packen und auch im Glauben weiterbringen. Dieses Buch habe ich ebenfalls wieder geliebt und verschlungen.

Review: The Ghost of Mavis
The Ghost of Mavis - Mary Lynn Plaisance

The Ghost of Mavis had me intuited by wanting to know what it was about. Was it a mother that died with a young girl. There a mystery to it that you are pondering from the minute you start reading.

 

Mavis shows up at the Pearly gates in a wedding dress. Why and what reason. Mary Lynn Plaisance write the story well. This is her first book, that I have read. She leaves you guessing and pondering about a little girl. Who is this little girl and what is she waiting for? All we know at the beginning Mavis as died and is at the age of 88. What her angels tells her is, that she miss her lick and was to marry again.

 

Mavis is confused but are we as well? She also wondering why she wears wedding dress. She wants to go back to earth to be born into a rich family. When she goes to ask, her angels she's going back to earth on mission. To do that she will go back as a ghost and her angel Anna will help her until she finds this James Windsor.

 

You start to wonder what life is after death. Where do we go? Is it a belief that we reincarnate back to our family or do we stay in haven. That you will have to decide. Mary does a splendid job with this and talking about the afterlife. I would suggest if you enjoy paranormal fan or even a little mystery fan this is a good book to read. I recommend it to read.

 

The book is well written and few mistakes. I believe a may have caught like one mistake in the entire book. It was probably one that got the word misplaced not even spell wrong when editing, it wonderful. I hope to read more by Mary Lynn Plaisance.

Early Friday Reads/Holiday Weekend Reading
Through Waters Deep - Sarah Sundin
The Good Girls Revolt: How the Women of Newsweek Sued their Bosses and Changed the Workplace - Lynn Povich
The Toymaker - Kay Springsteen
Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected--A Memoir - Kelle Hampton

To all my fellow Americans...

 

We have plans to have our holiday meal at a friend's house with other military families. Today I baked 3 pumpkin pies, 1 apple crisp, and defrosted one pecan pie (requested by my friend's husband and courtesy of my friend Marie Callendar). The rest of the weekend will be spent reading and watching movies - I DO NOT DO BLACK FRIDAY. I worked at Wal-Mart prior to going into the military and worked 3 BFs - honestly I would rather go back to Iraq than ever participate in the BF madness.

 

Here's the reading I hope to get done by the end of November:

1. Through Waters Deep (Waves of Freedom #1) by Sarah Sundin (for the second square)

 

2. Good Girls Revolt by Lynn Povich (for the first square- black and white cover)

 

3. The Toymaker by Kay Springsteen (for the first square - heroine is named Ivy)

 

4. Bloom by Kelle Hampton (Pop Sugar challenge and hoping to fill in another square on the 16 Tasks)
