The Brutal Telling

The Brutal Telling by Louise Penny Number 5 in the Inspector Gamache Novel and my favorite so far.  Penny has a knack for really odd murders and this one is no exception.  Although, in truth, I guess it’s not the murder that was so odd it in this one, but what happened after. The premise:... Continue Reading →

Cozy Minimalist Home

Cozy Minimalist Home by Myquillyn Smith More Style, Less Stuff, that’s the subtitle of this book.  I found this to be an inspiring book about creating a home that you love and that is uniquely yours.  I’m not 100% in love with all of her decorating choices, but that’s the point...It’s her house, not mine....

Lovely War

Lovely War by Julie Berry The premise of this book was so weird, I had to read it.  The opening scene: December 1942, a beautiful hotel lobby…in walks two Greek Gods, Aphrodite and Apollo.  (Yep, you read that right.) The two have arrived to kindle their affair, but are soon joined by Aphrodite’s angry husband,... Continue Reading →
