We are at the end of other month where I highlight some of the books that I have read. Keep in mind that I read to relax and recharge, so I keep my reading very light and feel good.

Like other Beth Harbison books I have read previously she has an unique story and grabs your attention from the beginning. However, I felt the plot was very predictable from an early point in this story and it ended somewhat abruptly. She keeps you engaged trying to follow and keep up with who is who in her eclectic mix of characters. It was a quick, light read which fits the bill for me considering I am doing it to relax and unwind. Purchase this book from Amazon here:When in Doubt, Add Butter.
This is only the 2nd book of David Baldacci that I have read. His style of writing is not something that I am drawn to and enjoy, but this was a departure from his normal writing style. It was a light feel good book with good character and plot development that ended with an unexpected twist. Purchase this book from Amazon here: The Christmas Train
The other book that I have read by David Baldacci is One Summer. I really enjoyed this drama about a family willing to survive despite the odds. Some may say that is it unrealistic, but I say it is fiction after all.
I picked this book up at one of those “take and give little libraries”. We have one located outside our YMCA. Evening Stars (Blackberry Island) by Susan Mallery is the last book in her Blackberry Island series. I have read several of her books and always enjoy them. This is a story of emotional growth, healing, and family dynamics. There were times during this story that I wanted to say to the two sisters to get over themselves but then we would not have a story.
I am currently reading House Rules: A Novel by Jodi Picoult…join me at the end of next month for a review of this book.
