Karen (karenvwrites) | 122 comments I put undone aside for a bit as I found it hard to read two Karen Slaughter books. I wonder if she is going to continue with Lena in Macon with Jared. Anyway I am back to Undone which is a mix of Will Trent and Sara Linton.

Karen (karenvwrites) | 122 comments DAUGHTER AM I—PAT BERTRAM-KINDLE EDTION.
Mary Stuart has grandparents or had grandparents, but they were murdered and she has inherited their farm. It seems that due to family politics her dad disowned his parents’ years before. Mary discovers a little black book in her grandfather’s possessions and finds a ragtag bunch of former mobsters who Mary takes on and makes friends with –Sounds like a trip down the yellow brick road at first but turns into a rousing adventure to find the hidden gold from a long ago robbery. Their prime nemesis in this case is a gold obsessed murderer following them.
I found this book to have a really neat concept to it. Most people boo anything to do with mafia or anything criminal. In this case these characters are lovable octogenarians on a last adventure for buried gold and who provide our heroine with insight to what her grandfather was like. Ms. Bertram has written characters you can cheer on and hope the best for. There is a little bit of everything for everyone in DAUGHTER AM I; humor, adventure, insight and a love story when Mary meets Tim. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good road trip story. I GIVE DAUGHTER AM I FIVE GOLD BARS.

Karen (karenvwrites) | 122 comments Flower Child BY SHEILA DEETH
A Spark of Heavenly Fire PAT BERTRAM
A spark of heavenly fire.
The red death epidemic has hit the state of Colorado and there is a quarantine and Marshall law. Along with merely staying alive; three women manage to thrive and show how strong they really are in the face of adversity. Kate, Dee and Pippy show what it takes to get through the worst. That indeed is a spark of heavenly fire. Kate and Dee work tirelessly to provide for the homeless and a purpose and merely try to save people. Pippy, miles from home must find a way to get back home after escaping illness. Meanwhile her fiancé is researching the epidemic and what caused it. Is it a bona fide illness or did it come from somewhere else, he wants to find out before it kills every one.
Ms. Bertram has written some very strong characters that have the strength in the worst of times. She keeps the reader on the edge while writing a riveting story and a the same time give us all hope that we to can have such moxie when we need it the most. Congrats to the author. I give this book five gold stethoscopes.(less)

Karen (karenvwrites) | 122 comments Flower child
This was Ms. Deeths shot at Heaven from the perspective of a child. Angela is an unborn child; One child that was never claimed by a parent. She describes it as being born from a flower and if the baby could not be claimed for whatever reason, the child would remain tethered to the earth by a cord until her fate is decided by her or her parents. Her friends in heaven are making decisions as to their futures choosing good over evil or vice versa and Angela and her mom, Mega...
