Daughters Of The Lake

Entertaining read and flowed nicely.

Six Weeks To Live
by Catherine Mckenzie

View in Library Catalog



Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of this author. That said, this book just didn't do it for me. The story is told in the viewpoint of Jennifer and all three daughters. I didn't find any of them, Jennifer included, particularly likeable. The book started out suspenseful, and ended up that way, but seemed to lose steam a little bit in the middle. Don't get me wrong..... it was a good book, and if you like thrillers then I think you should read it. It just wasn't this author's best work

The Children's Blizzard
by Melanie Benjamin

View in Library Catalog



The morning of January 12, 1888 started out unseasonably mild, and so teachers and children alike set off for school without their typical winter garb. Just as it came time for school to be dismissed, a fast-moving blizzard struck the state of Nebraska. Teachers were forced to make life-or-death decisions, and life would be forever altered for many families in communities all over the state Although the characters are fictional, the story itself is real. It is taken from the accounts of actual survivors of that terrible time. I can not begin to put into words how good this book was. It was written in a way that made it so real, I felt I was actually there watching it all unfold. It doesn't matter if you like historical fiction or not. I think anyone would enjoy this book. I highly recommend it.

The Last Time I Saw You

Fun read. The characters were a bit repetitive and stretched believability within the context of the story, but the plot twist was unexpected and entertaining.

If It Bleeds

I enjoyed the short stories. The only problem I ran into was the word choices in the title story seemed a bit off considering the topic, but it was still a good read.

Where The Grass Is Green And The Girls Are Pretty Lauren Weisberger

Peyton has it all - a career she loves as an anchor on a popular morning show, a husband who loves her, and an amazing daughter who is headed to Princeton in the fall. Everything is perfect until the day a story about a college admissions scandal breaks, and she sees her husband being led out of their apartment building in handcuffs. Peyton's sister Skye also seems to have it all - an adoring husband, a beautiful adoped daughter, and she is working on a special project to help girls from low-income families. The only problem is, Skye is hiding a secret that just keeps building, and she doesn't know what to do about it. Then, when Peyton's life implodes, the repercusions affect not only Peyton and her family, but Skye and her family as well. I loved this book. I didn't want to put it down. I kept rooting for Skye and for Peyton's daughter Max, who was just an innocent victim in all of this. This is a very timely novel. It did have a lot of humor, though, despite the serious subject matter. I highly recommend this one!

The Future Is Yours
by Dan Frey

This modern day cautionary tale is told through emails, texts, transcripts, and blog posts. You see the "behind the scenes" so-to-speak version of story, and how the rise to fame comes with its own costs of greed and jealousy. At times I felt the story was a little slow (especially the transcripts), but it had a great surprise ending, and overall was unique and enjoyable.

What's Worth Keeping
by Kaya Mclaren

This story is told in the alternating voices of Amy, her husband, and her daughter. Amy is a breast cancer survivor who, on the day she got her cancer diagnosis, found divorce papers that her husband was having drawn up. Amy's husband, Officer Paul Bergstrom, is battling PTSD because he never really dealt with and recovered from clearing bodies from the Oklahoma City Bombing. Since then, his job as a police officer frequently brings those old memories to the surface. His only coping mechanism has been to deaden his feelings, good and bad, in order to survive. Their daughter Carly has been spiraling ever since her mother got the cancer diagnosis, and now that she has just finished high school, her parents are deperate for her to get her life back on track before it is too late. This is a very emotional read. It is very well-written. It is a very heartbreaking novel, but I felt like it almost threw in too many deep subjects. It almost overpowered the novel. ( On top of the cancer disgnosis and Paul's PTSD, Amy's father had alzheimer's). Overall, this was a good but depressing novel.
