aug 8::.jpg

Don’t Miss Kristy Robinett’s New Release, Coming 8/8/17

 

Messages From a Wonderful Afterlife is an enlightening and fascinating read. In this book, the reader discovers some possible signs that a deceased loved one may use to send a message. Kristy Robinett talks about her own life, and experiences, as well as giving the reader; a peek into some of the sessions that she’s had with her clients.

I found the author’s words encouraging and positive. The stories in the book demonstrate how comforting connecting with a deceased relative can be. Death is a difficult subject to talk and read about. But, Kristy Robinett’s message is clear, there is an afterlife, and it is wonderful!

Messages From a Wonderful Afterlife is an easy to read, well-written, and informative book. Thank you, Llewellyn Publications and NetGalley for my advanced review copy.

I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere but the Pool by Lisa Scottoline & Francesca Serritella

Lifeguard.500.jpg

New Release Coming July 11, 2017- Check it out!

 

In the book, I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere but the Pool, Lisa Scottoline, and her daughter, Francesca Serritella, team up to write about incidents that occurred in their lives.

I found the book to be engaging and easy to read. Each chapter is crafted by either Lisa Scottoline or Francesca Serritella. Both writers, are good storytellers. Because different people find different things funny, I didn’t rate this book on how humorous I thought it was. I realize that, what I might not find funny, someone else would find hysterical. I Need a Lifeguard Everywhere but the Pool is a captivating and well-written read.

Thank you, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

*Rise* by Cara Brookins -5-Stars*

Rise..jpg

A Fascinating and Inspirational True Story!

Rise is an amazing true story about a mother’s determination to accomplish the near impossible. Cara Brookins needed a home for her children; a place that hadn’t already been, tainted by memories, of her ex-husband’s frightening and bizarre behavior. But, since she didn’t have money to buy a new home, she decided to build one, with the help of YouTube videos and her children.

Cara never dreamt that she would one day be pointing a loaded gun at the man she once loved. But, when her ex-husband Adam stood outside the house, wearing horns and a devil outfit, tapping on the window with a knife, Cara stood ready to pull the trigger.

Reading about Adam’s crazed, and stalking behavior was as captivating as it was horrific. When Adam was off his medication, he was paranoid, psychotic, and depending on his voices, dangerous. Building a home was more than just an experience for this author, it was the avenue in which she used to bind her family together, heal their emotional pain and strengthen their self-esteem. Cara Brookins shares her extraordinary story with brutal honesty and raw emotion. I found Rise to be an engaging, fascinating and inspirational read.

Many thanks to St. Martin’s Press, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

*Wake Up To The Word* by Joyce Meyer 5-Stars

wake-up-to-the-word

A Wonderful Devotional!

 

Wake Up To The Word is an easy to read daily devotional that touches the soul. Each day starts with one or two verses of Scripture, followed by a short applicable message. I found the author’s writing to be practical, uplifting, dynamic, and not at all preachy.

This book is a wonderful way to start your day and develop a closer walk with God. I love this book and plan to read more of Joyce Meyer’s writing.

Many thanks to the publisher, and Net Galley, for my advanced review copy.

*Richie* by Thomas Thompson 5-Stars

 

richie

Richie is a poignant true story about how a young man’s drug addiction not only stole his life but his family’s as well.

George Diener loved his son, Richie, his firstborn more than life itself. But by the time Richie was sixteen he had changed so much, that George hardly recognized him as the boy he raised. Drugs had turned his son into an angry, lying thief. George and Carol had tried everything they knew to help their son, but Richie wasn’t ready to stop using drugs. He loved getting high; in fact, Richie’s entire existence revolved around obtaining his next fix.

Although this true story takes place during the 1970’s, in West Islip, LI, NY, it could be happening anywhere, today. This book clearly demonstrates for the reader, the progression of drug addiction and the devastating effects it has on the user as well as the family.

George and Carol Diener agonized in pain as they watched, helplessly, their son destroy his life. I was engrossed in this well-written book from the first page. Alcohol and drug abuse touches just about every family or extended family in some way. This true emotional novel is not only heartbreaking; it’s compelling and educational as well. The author does a superb job in telling the Diener’s story. Highly recommended.

My sincere thanks to the publisher, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it.
