Silver Dollar: a novella by Alan Trustman - Alan Trustman

Silver Dollar by Alan Trustman
Really enjoyed the first book I read the other day by this author and look forward to more.
Totally out of their minds when they just board the plane and make it a 42 day around the world. Wow what a trip.
Joel is now dying and he wants her to be there for him and they try to make it to day 42 as their trip was.
Story goes back in time to when she had roommates and things aren't going just right and she takes off to find her own place with help from her other friends who she goes back to over the years from time to time.
As she advances at work she's able to afford her own place and takes up with L who travels a lot but they get along great.
Loved all the connections made through meeting others and helping one another out.
Relationships, career choices and life are all so fascinating as the years go by.
Like links to mystery of a disappearance til he's discovered and there's so much involved: skiing, restaurants, cannons and immigration.
Lots of action, adventure, romance and political views.
Love how the book got it's name. Can't wait to read more from this author.
Received a review copy via publicist and this is my honest review.

Veronica Mars
Veronica Mars: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line - Jennifer Graham,Rob Thomas,Kristen Bell

 

 

Fun Veronica Mars mystery that will appeal to fans of the show and the movie.  This book picks up three months after the action covered in the film (which I promptly checked out from the library and watched upon realizing the book was making references to it, and I still hadn't seen it).  The book, like the film, is set in 2014, ten years after Veronica graduated from high school.  In the interim, she has completed undergrad and a law degree from Stanford.  Although she's had a lucrative job offer with a Manhattan law firm, she's found herself drawn to her father's PI business, Mars Investigations.  And now there is a juicy case to investigate:  two girls have disappeared from a mysteriously bankrolled spring-break "party" house, and the Neptune Chamber of Commerce is eager to stop a "Nancy Grace"-style cable-TV commentator from continuing to warn parents away from allowing their college-aged children from spring-breaking in Neptune, CA.  And of course, the incompetent but politically expedient Sheriff Lamb can't be relied upon to solve the case.  So enter Veronica.

 

As a fan of the show, I of course pictured the actors who played Veronica, her father Keith, hacker friend/colleague Mac, love interest Logan Eccles, and others.  The mystery is just twisty enough to keep things interesting, and Veronica's wit and humor makes the story fun.  I suspect that even readers who didn't follow the show can enjoy this, but they might decide they want to catch up on DVD or Netflix.  It's just three seasons (sob), so go for it!  (Watch the movie, too.)

 

I am using this book to fulfill the week-five theme of my library's summer-reading program:  Genre fiction (mystery, of course).  There is a book two to this series, but the library doesn't own it (hint, hint).

Review For: Hellion by Emmy Joel
Hellion (Billion-Dollar Bastards Book 1) - Emmy Joel

'Hellion' by Emmy Joel is book One in the "Billion-Dollar Bastards". This is the story of Cate Lois and Malcolm Bradshaw. This book is about 150 pages and the story is so good you wish it was a little longer but overall I am happy to have read this book.
Malcolm and his friends Miller and Jackson have overcome being in jail for murder for 8 years. Now that are rich with a very successful construction company called Pharaoh Construction in Dallas. But while on a job they run into a body where Cate is called to the scene. Cate is a archaeologist who is only in town for a short time.
Malcolm and Cate are attracted to each other but there is more going on than this. This book has some exciting scene and great mystery that even when Cate and Malcolm have a Happy Ending the mystery continues. I can't wait for the next book by Ms. Joel!
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
