Re: OCTOBER 2021 HAPPY READING TO ALL. LET'S HEAR ABOUT YOUR FAVORITES

Just finished The Music Of Bees by Eileen Garvin. I enjoyed this book!  I find information about Bee Keeping very interesting, every bee has a job and they all work together to maintain the hive,  But it also contained relationships forming between a widow and 2 young men who had lived hard lives with no direction, it was heart warming to read how the 3 of them developed their friendship to become family!  Of course there had to be villains and this did not disappoint!

I couldn't finish this book and grew bored very early on.  To me, it wouldn't get to the point of the book.

I'll be starting Ann Cleeves "The Heron's Cry." It's her 2nd book with detective Matther Venn. I like her other books, so this should be another good one.

Just finished Saving Noah by Lucinda Berry, yes it was a controversial subject, but the ending had me in tears, if you can get through the subject this ended up   being a very good book!


@CareBears I cried for a whole day after reading this book!

I just finished Traded by Tess Thompson.  The book starts with Kara Biggs waiting for U. S. Marshalls as she enters the Witness Protection Program.  They move her from Philly to Cliffside, California, where she will have a new identify and her previous life rewritten.

 

The book starts out really well, but, unfortunately, it becomes ridiculous.  No one in that program swears new friends to their secret when it is clear that once the tabloids are aware (and in this case, that could easily happen), she could be killed.

 

This was book 1 of 2 and free, but I would not pay for the second book.

The next time that I hear salt and ice together, it better be in a margarita!

Finished Red Velvet by Carla Luna.  A sort of corny chick lit (friends to lovers) during a wedding when he was posing as her friend with benefits man.

Yesterday, I completed Heather Morris' Three Sisters. I have read many books about Holocaust victims and their families; this one is among the best historical fiction books that I have read.

Today, I intend to begin  Our Women in Moscow by Beatriz Williams.
