Bye, Baby by Carola Lovering

 

 I was hooked by the first page! I loved seeing how the friendship between Cassie and Billie changed as they aged. I felt a lot of sympathy towards Billie because of all she experienced growing up and her struggles into adulthood. Very well done.

Subversive( A Violet Sky Short Story) by Collin Irish

 

 I loved this exciting and thought provoking short story. The world is well developed and complex. The concept of an immersive experience on an entire planet was fascinating. I love Glyn and hope to see her in future books.

The Guest by B.A. Paris

 

 Wow, this story was more complex than it appeared at first glance. I liked that it was told from dual points of view. The action, the drama, mystery all helped to increase the suspense. My opinion of one character changed the closer to the end of the novel. The multiple twists left me awestruck.

The Fortune Seller by Rachel Kapelke-Dale

 

 I absolutely loved this book and was captivated from the start. It was fun to disappear into ivy league academia, equestrian competition and the world of the economic elite. The shocking twists were delightful.

The Women by Kristin Hannah

 

 This story was full of tragic, sad, emotional, and hopeful moments! It was so descriptive that I felt like I was there with Frankie, Ethel and Barb! There were many parts which were hard to read. The ending especially moved me to tears. I learned a great deal about the Vietnam War, the women who served and how they were treated after they returned home. It's important that their stories are never forgotten.

On Shattered Wings: A Family's Journey From Grief To Hope by Nancy Sprowell Geise, Jim Dultmeier, Lori Dultmeier

On Shattered Wings: A Family's Journey from Grief to Hope - Dultmeier, Jim, and Dultmeier, Lori, and Geise, Nancy Sprowell

 A brutally honest, heart wrenching, and emotional account of how drunk driving took the life of a daughter, a sister, and a friend. I'm thankful that the Dultmeiers were willing to share so much with the author. It's important that those who drink and drive understand the risk they pose to themselves and to the general public.
