March 2014 Books

I read 7 books in March:

1) Reversible Error - Robert K. Tanenbaum (paperback)
2) Desperate - Daniel Palmer (ARC)
3) The Chance - Robyn Carr (Kindle)
4) Evening Stars - Susan Mallery (Kindle)
5) The Good Sister - Wendy Corsi Staub (Kindle)
6) NYPD Red - James Patterson w/Marshall Karp (Kindle)
7) Meant To Be - Terri Osburn (Kindle)

Reversible Error was the first Tanenbaum book I've read, but it won't be the last. Margaret, a friend from work, loaned me the book. We are both bookaholics, and she's read most of his books. I quickly downloaded No Lesser Plea on my Kindle, but unfortunately I have a lot of books to read before I get to it.

Daniel Palmer's book was amazing. I really love the way he writes.  He always keeps me on the edge of my seat! I'm so glad I got to know about him from his father, the late Michael Palmer. I am now part of Daniel's street crew, and I received this ARC in return for an honest review.

Enjoyed Carr and Mallery's books, they are two of my "go-to" authors. Staub's book tells the story of social media and how young people today don't communicate face-to-face or by phone. It's all texting, Twitter or Facebook. And bullying is out of control.

I enjoyed Patterson's book too and his books are hit and miss these days.

Terri Osburn's book was my free Kindle book for the month (I have Amazon Prime) and I really liked it. Will probably be checking out more of her books.

First book in April is Explosive Eighteen by Janet Evanovich. Her Stephanie Plum novels are fun, quick reads. Some have been better than others, but I always have at least a couple of laugh-out-loud moments reading them.

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.
The Nanny Arrangement
by Rachel Harris
May 22, 2017
Entangled Publishing

Hannah has been best friends with Deacon for years, ever since she befriended him and he became her protector. Now she's been asked to be the nanny for Deacon's son, while he's embarking on a tour with a famous country band. Hannah has loved him for years, and she's determined to make him see her as more than a best friend. Do her tactics work? Does Deacon's upbringing (absent dad, alcoholic mother) prevent him from being able to maintain a relationship?

I loved the interaction that Hannah had with Deacon, as well as his band-mates wives and girlfriends. First book I've read by Harris, and I enjoyed it so much that I need to go back and read You're Still The One, the first book in the series.

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…
