You can feel the emotion as you read this book. The subject matter is unique. Ms. Wilson is a wonderful story teller. You must get this book.

Bonjour! Let's Learn French: Visit New Places and Make New Friends by Judy Martialay

   With a fun story and terrific pictures, this book will keep your child engaged and learning. The book makes it easy to learn French. Your child will enjoy learning French.  It may even help parents to learn a new language. 

    I did find one issue. I feel like this book is suited for late elementary age children. It's perhaps a bit ambitious for any younger littles. 

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because of the reason above.

What's Your Poison by Marie Fostino

     The Oklahoma City bombing opened a whole in Sylvia's heart. It broke her heart not to be able to help.  At 60 years old, she went back to school. She became an EMT but it expanded to so much more. Sylvia wasn't sure she could handle the job now.  She'd soon find out.

     The writing and characters in this book are amazing. I enjoyed the fact it wasn't sugar covered as many of this topic can be. Ms. Fostino writes from her soul and you can feel it with each and every word.  This book will give you  a new perspective. The plotting and pacing are easy and make this  book move along as it should. Get this one for your TBR pile.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because the compassion of the writer and characters shines though.

Dangerous Liaisons by Barbara Tyree

     Sierra Lancaster knew the path she wanted to take in life. After a couple of incidents, her path changes and becomes more dangerous. She loves her job though.  Sierra's partner, Colton, is a terrific guy and a great friend. When their boss sends them on vacation, they don't expect the bottom to fall out of their world. Now, they'll have to cope with new information and old.

     The base story line of this book is a good one. It has some unexpected twists and turns which only enhance the story. However...

     I did find issues. This book reads awkwardly. Incomplete sentences don't help this read. It's out of sequence in several spots. There are sections  which are repeated in several places. It's as if Ms. Tyree went back in and began to redo a section but forgot to delete the previous section.   Ms. Tyree gives up too many of the surprises too early in the story. This messes up the flow of the read. It's almost like  this was written by a junior high student. Clumsy comments and things explained that didn't need explaining.  This book is NOT ready for readers. It requires some reworking before they allow the public to read it. 

     I gave this one 2 cheers out of 5 because it's a nice attempt but falls short of the goal.
