Where the Lost Aprils Are / Elisabeth Ogilvie ~ 5/16/15
Miriam takes a vacation in a small town in Maine to try to find links to her mother. I've always wanted to visit the east coast of the US and someday I plan to do it. I'll skip the drama in this book, though.
3 ~ book with a character who dares to be different
Freddy the Detective / Walter R. Brooks ~ 5/4/15
A pig who turns detective? I'd say that qualifies as different!
I'd never heard of the Freddy the Pig series until someone mentioned it on an Amazon discussion. It's written for children, but don't let that stop you from enjoying these books. I've read the first two I could find (#3 and 4 in the series) and they are delightful. I've got #5 ready to start soon.
4 ~ book with a character who defies orders
Erased / Jennifer Rush ~ 5/9/15
As we saw in #1, Anna is not a character who spends her time on the straight and narrow. It's an exciting book with great characters.
