Book Review: Whole Hearted by Swami Veda Bharati
Whole Hearted: Applied Spirituality for Everyday Life - Swami Veda Bharati

A practical, funny and wise text from Swami Veda Bharati, whom I had the pleasure of meeting personally in 1999 when he attended the Council of World Religions in Cape Town. My yoga teacher here in Johannesburg, Glen Hudson, was a teacher of hatha yoga of the Himalayan tradition and organised a satsang & private blessings with Swami. I was lucky enough to attend both, and even luckier to receive a personal poem from Swami in response to a poem I'd given him (I'll load the photos on my author profile). This book took me straight back to that marvellous evening - Swami's voice shines through every page and his spiritual wisdom is indeed practical enough to be applied to every day life. Well worth the read.

Review of "A Whole Latte Murder" (Java Jive Mystery #3)
A Whole Latte Murder - Caroline Fardig

I so enjoyed the romp that was the first two books that I immediately started this.

 

Maybe I shouldn't have binge read or I might have enjoyed this more.  I'm also not a huge fan of mysteries so not the best source for an opinion.

 

I'm not necessarily done with the series, but this one was a bit much.  Too much of everything thrown in.  Too many characters.  Too many romantic shake ups.  Too much of those shake ups plus the mysteries themselves depended on tossing out completely what the first two books told us about certain characters.

 

What my rating scale means:


★★½☆☆ = Liked parts; parts only okay. Would read more by author

A Whole Latte Murder - Caroline Fardig

Stan (not a love interest) moments just make me giggle for some reason.  I think it's because he does has moments when it sinks in that he is a non-attacking, non-groping douchebag and actually does try to be better — and other times it just goes over his head.
