Thanks to Michelle Halket and Alex Lyttle for allowing me to read and give an honest review.
What a great read! I will admit that when I read the synopsis, I was somewhat hesitant to start reading this novel. I really thought it would be a very depressing read, and although the subject matter is heart wrenching, it is so well written, the story just flows and hooks you right into this families drama.
Calvin and Sammy are brothers-they are each others company but Calvin is wanting to
really make some new friends, Calvin meets Aleta and wants to hang out with her instead of Sammy, so he gives Sammy some challenges, so he can reach another level, on his way to being an”Eagle”. Aleta is trying to get over a painful situation in her own family, so her and Sammy just kind-of hang out , she writes, he reads.
But then one of the brothers gets very sick, and things change drastically in this family, it begins to pull them apart, I imagine that cancer would cause problems in any family, but when it involves a child, that has got to be the worse.
If you love a well written novel, with a loving family, you will love this novel-it has love, loss, friendship, family drama, forgiveness, most of all this is the story of any family in the world that tragedy takes over their everyday life, but are strong enough to survive. This novel tells us that everyone reacts to a devastating disease, illness, hospitals, and death differently.
This novel will make you smile, but it will also make you cry, you will love this read!
I LOVED THIS BOOK….all of these beautiful dogs, eating peanut butter…so funny! I love, love,
love dogs, they warm my heart and make me so happy! Greg Murray took some great pictures, I love that he took the photos, the name of the dogs, and a little information about them. If you love dogs, you will love this book.
This is a great coffee table book, you can pick it up and it will make you smile! I really hope all these dogs get adopted into loving homes. I am saddened by the way animals are treated by some humans, it hurts my heart, but when I find people that love them as much as I do, I am overjoyed! Greg Murray is a true lover of dogs, I can tell just by the photos he took, you will see the love to!
This was a GOODREADS win for me and I love it!
Thanks to NETGALLEY and CLARE MACKINTOSH for allowing me to read and give an honest
Imagine that you are reading the classified ads, and you see your photo, in a dating
ad. This is what happens to Zoe Walker, she is freaked out, takes it home and shows her family, they think its a look alike. The next day Zoe sees another photo, and then woman begin to be murdered, in cruel bizarre ways.
Zoe begins to feel that someone is following her, things begin to happen at home and at work, she suspects everyone. Her boss, her boyfriend, her daughters new boyfriend, her best friends husband.
This is a page turning-edge of your seat psychological thriller, full of twist and turns, ups and downs. The author did a great job of introducing you to the characters, you become involved in her family. You will feel fear for Zoe and her family, the story is very strong and will keep you guessing.
Usually I figure out the who, when, what, where and why before the end, but OMG this ending completely knocked my socks off. I did not see the ending coming, I was shocked at the ending, it was perfect! This novel has it all, mystery, drama, fear, family drama, love, surprise.
Thanks for being patient with me about getting my reviews posted.
