I spent my childhood in the 60s and 70s. Obviously, life was different then. Was it better? Was it worse? Well, I’m going to be the judge of that because I’m listing fourteen random areas of difference and telling you if I think they were better, worse, or somewhere in between. 1.Corporal punishment was allowed in school.

I read In Search of Lucy carefully because Lucy reminds me of someone I know. She's selfless to a fault at times, yet she'd more likely reject and even hurt a person's feelings than accept kindness and charity from others. She can practically be over ...more

This terrific Christmas story has been on my kindle for almost a year, so this was the perfect time to finally read it. Like all of this author's books, I was so wrapped up in the characters that I was surprised by the twist. Lia Fairchild has a knac ...more

I admit it. I liked this book--a lot. I actually read it twice because the way McCarty writes, it's easy to miss the nuances. Her characters are a complete jumble of everyone on the planet who could be interesting, and then she has them talk to each ...more

High Maintenance by Lia Fairchild

Like all of Fairchild's books, the characters are a hit in this book--the good guys and the bad guys, and for a novella, everyone in between. The banter is fun, the problems are real, and the twist is a surprise even though I've come to expect it fro ...more

Blood Ties by Ashley Fontainne

I've read at least 6 of Fontainne's books. This one was co-written, but it had the same suspenseful flavor that is so obviously hers. This one has a unique mother/daughter relationship (the good guys) and some hot love scenes mixed with the typical p ...more
