Bountiful (True North Book 4) Sarina Bowen Preorded!
Bountiful (True North Book 4) - Sarina Bowen

Out October 20! 

 

No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules.


Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara’s bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling—a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on. 

Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life. 

Two years later, she’s made peace with the notion that Dave From Brooklyn will never be found. Until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop, leveling her with the same hot smile that always renders her defenseless.

Hockey star Dave Beringer has never forgotten the intense month he spent with prickly Zara. Their nights together were the first true intimacy he’d ever experienced. But the discovery of his child is the shock of a lifetime, and his ugly past puts relationships and family out of reach.

Or does it? Vermont’s countryside has a way of nurturing even tortured souls. The fields and the orchards—and hard won love—are Bountiful.

Chinese Cinderella: The True Story of an Unwanted Daughter - Adeline Yen Mah

An interesting book based on the upbringing of the author, Adeline Yen Mah. Gives insight to life as an unwanted child, but also about how families were affected of the Japanese invasion of China and later on in the book the Chinese civil war. Ending was sour sweet. Very enjoyable book overall.

Spirits of the Cage: True Accounts of Living in a Haunted Medieval Prison by Richard Estep & Vanessa Mitchell
Spirits of the Cage: True Accounts of Living in a Haunted Medieval Prison - Richard Estep,Vanessa Mitchell

Wow what a book. This is a true account of one of England's most haunted homes. In the 16th century it was used as a prison for people accused of witchcraft. Some of the people have never left. Among some of the spirits there is the Jailer, at least one woman accused of witchcraft, a child, a previous owner who committed suicide in the house and more. 

 

Vanessa Mitchell is the owner. After 3 years of living in terror in the house finally had to move out. She tried renting the place out but her tenets never lasted long. Now she allows the curious to tour the home and allows Paranormal Investigators in to do investigations. Paranormal Researcher and author of this book Richard Estep was one of those who investigated int he house. The book is about his week there and also he tells Vanessa's story as well as a few others eyewitness accounts. 

 

The book is awesome. It has those terrifying moments that make you turn another light on while reading. He lays out how their investigation goes from day one. I would personally love to go to England and visit this house. I wouldn't want to be on a lock down there but a visit would be amazing. 

 

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Keep me
Bountiful (True North Book 4) - Sarina Bowen

This is the 4th book in the True North series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  However, to avoid spoilers and have complete understanding of this amazing series, I recommend reading these in order.

 

Zara & Dave make a memory and then plan to never see one another again.  This is of course, before the surprises that seem to keep coming.  Good thing Zara has her family for support.

 

Dave misses Vermont and cannot wait to get back.  He had hoped to find Zara if he ever went there again.  Fate intervenes, and the rest as they say is history.

 

I have to warn you - I cried almost the entire book.  Please get your tissues ready.  Stunningly beautiful, this story has so much power to move you and your emotions.  Each encounter of these characters seem so real to me.  Very touching, and thought provoking, I was excited to see it be the next part of the True North series.  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***This ARC copy was given in exchange for an honest review.

Halloween Bingo 2017 - Terror in a Small Town
In Cold Blood: A True Account of a Multiple Murder and Its Consequences - Truman Capote

This was recommended by my local independent bookseller when I mentioned how much I'd enjoyed Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil.

 

It's been sitting unread on my shelf for a few years now, so I reckon it's about time I read it.
