Book Review: Divergent Trilogy

Posted by Nichole on August 21, 2017 in Book Reviews, Movies |

As if you didn’t all know this already, I do enjoy a good young adult read and Veronica Roth’s trilogy doesn’t disappoint. In this dystopian series, teens have to make some serious choices:  what faction will they  be for the rest of their lives?  Will they be always truthful, brave, selfless, intelligent, or peaceful?  So […]

Book Review: “The Women of Duck Commander”

Posted by Nichole on March 26, 2016 in Book Reviews, Non-Fiction |

Let me tell you a little something about my life.  My husband is a country boy.  And I don’t mean that he’s just a “drive the pick up and listen to Blake Shelton on the radio” kinda guy.  He’s a “Hank Williams, let’s go deer hunting, wore his good cowboy boots to our wedding” kind […]

Book review: “Death on the Greasy Grass”

Posted by Nichole on March 16, 2015 in Book Reviews, Mystery |

I picked this one up because of the title: Death on the Greasy Grass.  I mean, seriously.  Greasy Grass.  How amazingly descriptive is that? Then I read the book’s summary and I knew I had to buy it.  There’s a Battle of Little Big Horn reenactment, an FBI agent trying to take a few days […]

Book Review: Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy

Posted by Nichole on December 8, 2014 in Book Reviews, Paranormal |

Here’s another review that’s a little out of my normal reading genre.  Kind of. The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy isn’t a mystery.  It falls squarely in the romance genre.  So squarely, in fact, that it’s a Nora Roberts trilogy. However, the setting and the topic appealed to me (Ireland and magic), so I couldn’t resist picking […]

Book Review: “A Haunting Dream”

Posted by Nichole on July 14, 2014 in Book Reviews, Mystery, Paranormal |

I am a huge fan of Joyce and Jim Lavene and all their various series.  Well, at least the ones I’m familiar with anyway. A Haunting Dream is part of the MIssing Pieces series and is set in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  In this series, Dae O’Donnell has a gift for finding lost […]

Book Review: “The Cold Dish”

Posted by Nichole on March 2, 2014 in Book Reviews, FanGirl, Mystery |

There are a lot of things I really dislike about winter.  I dislike the cold.  And the fewer hours of sunlight.  And the cold. I also dislike the fact that A&E doesn’t have Longmire on. I’ll admit that I am not usually a fan of westerns.  I mean, really.  I’m not a “horse” girl.  I […]

Book Review: “Merciless”

Posted by Nichole on February 10, 2014 in Book Reviews, FanGirl, Mystery |

Have you ever met someone who was so amazing that you were a little in awe of them right from the start?  And  then you find out that person is just as nice as can be?  And then you find out that person is where you want to be in life? That’s my experience with […]

In this installment, Mel Turner is leading a group of volunteers in some community service where they do home improvements for the elderly, the handicapped and the needy. As they work on one disabled man’s home, making it […]

Book Review: “Clara’s Wish”

Posted by Nichole on January 7, 2014 in Book Reviews, Mystery |

Who else loves those true crime stories?  What about those Unsolved Mysteries re-runs? So I’m not the only one?  Good. It’s those qualities that combine to make Clara’s Wish a great novel. S.M. Senden takes readers back to the 1920s and the disappearance of a young woman. The mystery is great and the characters are […]

Book Review: “The Sayers Swindle”

Posted by Nichole on January 7, 2014 in Book Reviews, Mystery |

I have a few confessions to make.  First, and foremost, I’ve never read Dorothy Sayers.  Nothing.  I’ve tried a few times to find her mysteries at the library, or via the online catalog for my library, and have come up empty handed. Now that we got that out of the way, I will also admit […]
