1. I really enjoy Anita Shreve's books, too. I haven't heard of the one mentioned, tho'. The Stars Are Fire will be one of my next books to read, Debby.

    I like your book reviews, Brenda, even tho't some of the books you really like aren't ones I would read. I still like to be aware of what others are reading, what's out there, you know. I'm just not tough enough to read those murder mystery, suspense novels, I guess!

    It's wonderful that you are feeling better. Let's assume that it will continue.

  2. I will certainly place this book on my To Read list. I am reading The Stars Are Fire by Anita Shreve and it has been holding my attention. The main character is a young mother who confronts losses and finds a way to remake her life and finds her own strengths (based on a true story of the largest fire in Maine's history). Next up is Winter Solstice by Elin Hilderbrand. I have enjoyed many of her novels in the past so I hope this one will be good as well.

    Hope you are feeling better and better. Your post yesterday was very upbeat; seems like your writing reflected improved health and high hopes! I found myself smiling as I read your post. Then a big frown as I realized I too need to cut back on the caffeine.

    Take care and have a wonderful weekend. It is a beautiful day here, bright and sunny with just a hint of breeze — a high of 77 is forecast with a low of 61 this evening.

  3. Hi. I rarely read suspense novels or mysteries because my life is kind of stressful and I don't want any additional stress or feeling of being keyed up when using a book to escape life for awhile. But, I do like to read your reviews of these books in case it might spur me to consider giving one of them a try. I am wondering why you rated this 4 out of 5 — what would have made it a better read for you? Thanks! Hope you are feeling better too.

    1. I gave it 4 out of 5 because though I loved the book, it wasn't the best of this genre I've read. I hesitated about this rating, but then decided it was best to err on the side of caution because if I give every book I read a 5 rating, the ratings won't mean that much.

  4. Thank you for this Brenda. I have taken note of the titles by Mary Kubica, I love suspense stories.
    Hope you are feeling better today. Give the pupsters a hug from me.

    1. I am feeling better. Still can tell the cyst is there pressing against my bladder, but not drinking caffeine, which makes it worse.
