January - February 2014 Books

It's hard to keep up with a blog when you're on Facebook and Twitter, but I'm going to try...

As an avid book reader, I'm a bit behind on my goal for the year.

Miracle Road - Emily March (Kindle)
A Change of Heart - Barbara Longley (Kindle)
Doctor Sleep - Stephen King (hardback)
Fearless Fourteen - Janet Evanovich (paperback)
A Cold Creek Christmas Surprise - RaeAnne Thayne (Kindle)
Finger Lickin' Fifteen - Janet Evanovich (paperback)
Seaview Inn - Sheryyl Woods (Kindle)

Home to Seaview Key - Sheryyl Woods (Kindle)
Sizzling Sixteen - Janet Evanovich (Kindle)
Fear Nothing - Lisa Gardner (Kindle)
Come Home to Me - Brenda Novak (Kindle-ARC)
Single by Saturday - Catherine Bybee (Kindle)
Smokin' Seventeen - Janet Evanovich (Kindle)
Perfect Together - Carly Phillips (Kindle)

Loved the Sheryyl Woods books, and Fear Nothing by Lisa Gardner was one of her best! Love Brenda Novak, and enjoyed reading the ARC of her new book. Evanovich books are getting a little stale, but they're still enjoyable.

January and February were cold, snowy months. The snow in the first part of February stuck around for a long time because we had bitter cold temperatures along with it. The city did a lousy job of clearing off streets, so it was treacherous driving for about a week!

Life Goes On

Life changed for me on July 17, 2017. I was laid off from the place I worked for almost 41 years.

I wasn't totally surprised. After all, layoffs have become the norm at newspapers. I was hoping I could make it at least another year.

But...alas...I didn't.

The Wichita Eagle has been my home and my life for so long. I started just after I turned 20 years old. Back in the good old days. What have I done over the years?

Job 1 - Classified Ad Taker
Job 2 - Classified Ad Support Staff
Job 3 - Ad Services Head Typist
Job 4 - Newspaper Layout Assistant
Job 5 - Production Director Secretary
Job 6 - VP/Operations Administrative Assistant
Job 7 - Executive Administrative Assistant and Layout Coordinator
Job 8 - Page Layout Manager
Job 9 - Prepress Manager
Job 10 - Advertising Customer Service Manager

There are other job duties in between all of these milestones. I dedicated my heart and soul to the Eagle. I started when I was so young. I met my husband while I worked there. I had all three of my child…

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.

REVIEW - Need to Know by Karen Cleveland

Need to Know
Karen Cleveland
Ballantine Books
RELEASE DATE: 1/23/2018

Thanks to NetGalley for the chance to read this book by Karen Cleveland.

Do books about the possibility of Russian sleeper cells in the US interest you? How about a CIA analyst who gets herself involved in a major "situation"?

Need to Know kept me on the edge of my seat, from the first paragraph to the very last. I didn't want to put it down, but when I had to, all I did was think about it. I explained what was going on to my husband, who is not a reader. Even he was intrigued. If you like fast-paced, punch-you-in-the-face kind of action, this book is for you.

Very highly recommend!
