This year, though, there were no sandy strolls. This year, it was all about getting back to normal after the emotional rollercoaster, the nightmare the family had experienced. It was a nice warm late summer day, Rob tried to put it all in perspective, tried to think about the good things in his life. As the doctor wisely advised, he needed to “put the past to bed.” The sky was clear blue, with a few puffy, white clouds floating by in the light breeze.

And that ends the shameless promotion part of our program. On to the book recommendations!

As some of you may know I review books on my blog from time to time, so I'm sharing some of my finds this month around the World Wide Web.

Mysteries:

The Sam Harper Series:

-Silenced Cry by Marta Stephens

-The Devil Can Wait by Marta Stephens

These two books are are excellent police procedures.

-Avenging Angel: A Shannon Wallace Mystery by Kim Smith

I'm still reading this one, but it has been a delight so far. The author has a second book in this series coming out soon and has written two other books that have gotten rave reviews.

Paranormal:

-Haunted Marietta by Rhetta Akamatsu

A non-fiction history book, that mixes in tales of ghosts. From my review- "This book is one part history lesson, one part ghost story and one part paranormal primer, stirred into a delightfully entertaining read."

Here are two from my want-to-read list:-Thunder and Blood by Stacey Voss

Sisters, vampires and portals to another world.

-Angel Of Death: Book One of the Chosen by Karen Dales

"The Vampires of London are being murdered and only the Angel of Death can save them."

YA Fantasy:

-The Kirin Trilogy by James Priest

I reviewed the first two books in this series; very charming.

-Goneaway: Book I Into the Land by Jeffery B. Allen.

An excellent book for young, and old, adults.
