Re: JUNE 2022 READ ANY GOOD BOOKS LATELY?

Just finished Goodbye Again by Mariah Stewart, I enjoyed this book.  A beach community where the citizens all know one another, and support each other, a new bookstore is reopened after the former owner left it shambles due to his health, I just wished there was a bookstore like that in the town I live in.  But it had a bad part too, which when revealed made me angry and sick to my stomach!  But reading about the friendships that have been formed, and the children in this book, touched my heart!

icezeus,I'm couldn't agree more! I haven't been here much lately. I have read a bunch of books,but nothing to write home about. I believe the publishers keep all the good books till just before Christmas. Just a thought.

I don't give out that many 5 star reviews but Doll-Baby by Laura Lane McNeal was one of them!

No, as in things that are happening today. Re: race, etc. Reading what the book is about, it mentioned race.

Just finished Empty Vows by Mary Monroe, let me start off by saying this was like no book I have ever read, some may find this book offensive, but I did not find it offensive at all, immoral yes, but not your every day read which was a nice pace from the same old same old books I tend to read!

@CareBears that is book 2 of a series by Mary Monroe.  The first one is Mrs. Wiggins where it all began.  I adored both.
