A MURDER ON JANE STREET by Cathy Cash Spellman

Image
A brutal murder.
A heinous secret.
A deadly conspiracy.


The brutal murder of the little old lady next door puts FitzHugh Donovan on the case. A retired New York City Police Chief, he knows a cover-up when he sees one and his Irish Cop conscience can't let that happen.

Now, Fitz, his family and his quirky band of Bleecker Street Irregulars are ensnared in the bizarre secret the woman died to protect.

Is this a cold case turned hot again, or an unspeakable conspiracy that could alter the course of history?

Fitz doesn't yet know how high the stakes are, that failure isn't an option, and that the little old lady was so much more than she appeared. But he's trying to keep everyone alive long enough to find out.

Characters you’ll care about, dark shocking secrets, and disturbing similarities to today’s political scene, will keep you turning pages to an ending you won’t see coming.

THE GUILTY FRIEND book review

The Guilty Friend
by Joanne Sefton



Book Description:
Cambridge, 1986. Alex, Karen, and Misty are an inseparable trio at Cambridge University – one can never be found far from the others. But when Alex dies suddenly, the remaining two friends can’t look one another in the eye – knowing they both had a part to play in her death.

Present day. Misty and Karen haven’t spoken in years, but, convinced she has seen a picture of Alex alive, Karen doesn’t know who else to turn to. She soon becomes obsessed with a past she thought she’d left behind her… and her life begins to spiral out of control.

Because, when you’re living in the past, who is keeping an eye on the present?

MY REVIEW:

This book deals with the delicate subject of anorexia.  Joanne Sefton handles it with sensitivity, research, and compassion.  The story also deals with guilt and friendship.  Three friends....one dead & one lying.  Alex was the bright star among the three and now she is dead.  Which …

The Farmer's Bride (Amish Brides of Birch Creek #2) by Kathleen Fuller
Book Description: Bestselling and award-winning author Kathleen Fuller returns to the Amish community of Birch Creek in this charming tale of falling in love while pursuing the dreams of your heart.

Having grown up in poverty, Seth Yoder refuses to be financially insecure again.

Overwhelmed by the unwanted attention, she finds herself constantly fleeing from them, and that isn’t the way she wants to live her life. 

When Cevilla Schlabach, Birch Creek’s resident matchmaker, hears of Martha’s predicament, she believes …
