Nothing Stays Buried by P.J. Tracy

This was my favorite book of this series so far for me. I really enjoyed the characters. They work so well together. This had many twist and turns. I loved the suspense. I received an ebook copy from Firsttoread for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

The Monkeewrench crew returns to face the city of Minneapolis’s worst nightmare—a rampant serial killer on the loose—in the electrifying new thriller.


When Minneapolis homicide detectives Leo Magozzi and Gino Rolseth are called to a crime scene in a heavily wooded city park, everything about the setting is all too familiar. And when they discover a playing card on the victim’s body, their worst fears are confirmed—there’s a serial killer operating in the city for the first time in years.
Across town, Grace MacBride and her unconventional partners at Monkeewrench Software find themselves at both personal and career crossroads. Weary of the darker side of their computer work for law enforcement, they agree to take on a private missing-persons case in a small farming community in southwestern Minnesota.
As the violence accelerates in Minneapolis, Magozzi and Gino soon realize their killer is planning to complete the deck, and they enlist Monkeewrench to help stop the rampage. As a baffling tangle of evidence accumulates, the cops and Monkeewrench make the unlikely connections among a farmer’s missing daughter, a serial killer, and a decades-old stabbing that brings them face-to-face with pure evil.

Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky

This was a fantastic book as always from Carrie Turansky. I could not put this book down. I even had to look up who crossed the English Channel first. I loved the history and the romance. The characters were fantastic. This is one of the first books I have read about the first airplanes. It was fascinating. I received a copy of this book from bloggingforbooks for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

Isabella Grayson, the eldest daughter of a wealthy, English newspaper magnate, longs to become a journalist, but her parents don’t approve. They want her to marry well and help them gain a higher standing in society. After she writes an anonymous letter to the editor that impresses her father, her parents reluctantly agree she can write a series of articles about aviation and the race to fly across the English Channel, but only if she promises to accept a marriage proposal within the year. When James Grant, an aspiring aviator, crashes his flying machine at the Grayson’s new estate, Bella is intrigued. James is determined to be the first to fly across the Channel and win the prize Mr. Grayson’s newspaper is offering. He hopes it will help him secure a government contract to build airplanes and redeem a terrible family secret. James wants to win Bella’s heart, but his background and lack of social standing make it unlikely her parents would approve. If he fails to achieve his dream, how will he win the love and respect he is seeking? Will Bella’s faith and support help him find the strength and courage he needs when unexpected events turn their world upside down?

The Teen’s Guide to Social Media…& Mobile Devices

I was very glad I read this book and hope that more parents and their teens read this book. It tries to say that social media isn’t bad, it is the people using it that can make it bad. Teens need to know that it can be dangerous to use this media. I learned a few things that I didn’t know. I received a copy of this book from Barbour for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

In The Teen’s Guide to Social Media . . . and Mobile Devices by Jonathan McKee, teens and tweens are offered helpful tips on how to deal with today’s digital world. Jonathan’s approach is refreshingly honest and humorous, providing information for teens to make informed decisions and challenging them in a way that encourages and inspires without belittling. Includes tips like, “Take more themies than selfies,” “Don’t post pics you wouldn’t want Grandma, your boss, and Jesus seeing!” and more!

The Day the Angels Fell by Shawn Smucker

It will be very hard for me to go a year before finding out what happens in the next book in this series. I did not want to put this book down. This seems to be more of a book for teens but I feel that adults will like it also. My favorite character was Abra. She is a great girl. Samuel has a lot to learn in this book. This is great Christian suspense. I received a copy of this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

It’s been the worst summer of 12-year-old Samuel’s life. First, lightning strikes the big oak tree in his front yard—then his mother is killed in a tragic accident. Now Samuel will do anything to turn back time. Prompted by three otherworldly carnival fortunetellers, can he discover the Tree of Life—and find his mother

All She Left Behind by Jane Kirkpatrick 

This book made me laugh and cry a lot. It was so sad in many places. This is based on true people and Jennie’s life is so sad and happy. It was interesting to see how women were treated and what they go through each day. I love how she shows so much courage her whole life. I received this book from Revell for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.


In 1870, Jennie Pickett dreams of becoming a doctor, but the Oregon frontier doesn’t approve of women attending medical school. She is already a natural healer who understands the healing properties of herbs and oils. Jennie cares for an elderly woman using her natural healing techniques and later becomes one of the first women to graduate from a medical college.

I received this book from the author and Celebratelit for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.

Q & A with Rachel Dylan
The Atlanta Justice series is centered around strong, female lawyers who take on high-stakes cases. What made you want to write their stories?I’d have to say it’s personal! Having been an attorney for eleven years now, I love being able to pour parts of myself into the books. My everyday life as a lawyer isn’t that exciting and is definitely not as dangerous! But I’m able to draw on what I’ve lived through to bring life and authenticity to these characters.

What type of research did you do for Deadly Proof?One of the great things about writing books related to my career is that I know lawyers who practice all different types of law. Deadly Proof focuses on Kate Sullivan, who is a plaintiff’s attorney taking on a big pharmaceutical company. I don’t do this specific type of plaintiff’s work, but I know lawyers who do, and I was able to talk with them. Also, I was able to relate to my characters on the defense side because I’ve done that work for years. It was really fun to write the perspectives of characters on both sides of the case.

Is there a reason you chose Atlanta for this series?Yes! I’m from Georgia and lived in Atlanta, practicing law at a large law firm, for eight years. I wanted to pick a setting I was intimately familiar with to give readers an authentic Atlanta experience—sweet tea and all.

Where do you think Kate’s passion for her work comes from?Kate truly believes that her life’s work is to help those who have been wronged. I believe a lot of her passion stems from her strong faith that has developed over the years. She’s not a lawyer to make big bucks but to change people’s lives for the better.

What is the next book in the Atlanta Justice series about?Book two is about Kate’s friend Sophie Dawson, who we meet in Deadly Proof. Sophie is an Atlanta prosecutor. This story is exciting because it involves a completely different type of legal case than Deadly Proof. But I promise things get just as dangerous!
