The Chili Queen: A Novel by Sandra Dallas
Fun, Interesting, Adventurous
Enjoyed the setting, characters and the twist at the end

Another great book by this author. Sandra Dallas is a favorite author of mine. You should try Alice's Tulips and also The Diary of Mattie Spenser.

Thoughtful and quietly satisfying read.

I love this entire series. I enjoy the quiet reflection and the slow pace. The setting in Botswana and the fully developed characters make this a delightful destination for some armchair traveling.

The Alienist by CALEB CARR
Interesting, Informative, Dramatic
I enjoyed the setting and the characters but it seemed longer than it needed to be. The psychological aspect was interesting but the detail became tedious. I was never tempted to turn to the end bec

Book club loved this book for discussion

The start of the book is slow and confusing but the more I read the more engrossed I became. Still can't decide if she did it or not?!

Firefly Lane

This was too long and predictable. I would expect it to be made into a Lifetime T.V. movie.

I loved this book. The letter format was a little offputting at first. But soon into the book I looked forward to the different characters letters. Each one had a distinctive voice. My book club all loved this book too! There was a lot to talk about!

Same Kind Of Different As Me by Ron Hall, Denver Moore
Book Club Recommended
Inspiring, Insightful, Life Changing
Same Kind of Different as Me: A Modern-Day Slave, an International Art Dealer, and the Unlikely Woman Who Bound Them Together

I felt so many emotions while reading this book. Frustration with society that would tolerate such inequities, admiration for people who persevere in the face of extreme obstacles and hope for mankind because of the grace of God extended when we don't deserve it.

I totally enjoyed this book

This has been a terrific, and motivating book for me. Perhaps it hit a need in my own life for it to so resonate with me. I have since subscribed to her blog site and receive her facebook status updates.

Optimistic, Inspiring, Insightful
Excellent premise...unlikable person

I read this because of the idea of coping with chronic illness by focusing on others instead of self. There was just too much complaining and eventually strange spiritual stuff to really be relevant for me.

I love Georgette Heyer's regency novels. Light, easy and fun read.
