The Bottle Stopper (The Paper Duchess #1)
The Bottle Stopper (The Paper Duchess Book 1) - Angeline Trevena

 

 

An excellent story and a creative world dreamed up by author Trevena. The reader can't help but empathize with the main character, Maeve, and her dire circumstances dealing with her evil Uncle Lou. Her tribulations are many, but so is her quick thinking. Maeve takes the cruelest acts against her and tries in her way to make them right. Revenge, but in a unique and twisted way. The descriptions of the people she meets, her friend, and the places she visits are deeply cultivated within the rich world that the author ables us to see and feel. The stairs leading up to a better place may not be the stairway to heaven after all. The winding plot gets thicker, as more revelations push Maeve into drastic situations requiring extreme measures. There is a lot of bad happening in this dystopian world, not only for Maeve. Still, there is hope, and the twist, in the end, will give hope. It also leads well into the next story. You'll want to pick up the next in the series. Well written and provoking book, I recommend you read the series.

The Devil in the Bottle - Carol Buchanan

 

Based on true accounts of the life of Joseph Alfred Slade.

I'm not sure how I managed to get a hold of book 3 but not the first 2, so some of it was a bit confusing.

 

The main character is a lawyer from NYC who moved west and became part of the vigilante group patrolling (near as I could figure) what is now southern Montana down to Northern Nevada during the Civil War. There were no official courts as yet, so they basically policed their own.

 

 

Worth the read if you are interested in the old west, but I would suggest starting with book 1.  :  )

So Much More than Jeannie
Jeannie Out of the Bottle - Wendy Leigh;Barbara Eden

Wow. This was amazing. When most people think of Barbara Eden, they think the bubbly, naive genie in a pink harem costume. But there is so much more. This book covers the gammit. From her very religious, straight-laced childhood to dancing in a chorus line to even singing in Vegas. I had no idea she did all that. Motherhood, heartbreak and courage are just some of the things this book has. I loved every page. And I send my love and prayer to Mrs. Eden for the loss of both her children.
