Adeline by Mark Torres

    A helpless Father. A disabled Mother.   A mysterious death that would haunt them through the years.  At the heart of it all, a happy young  girl.  Could anyone unravel the details and find the answer the family desperately needed? 
    Savoy Graves was hired to make sense of this mystery and time was limited. This case was gonna be difficult. Savoy jumped in with both feet, spurred on by the oddities he found along the way.

    This book is a fantastic read. The first thing you will notice is the large amount of characters introduced in a very short time. You will be knee deep in this mystery before you realize it. The page turning story will keep you reading until you get to the end.Great characters. Well plotted. Fast paced. Characters you can easily related to.  This book has it all.  Mr. Torres writes a very well rounded book. You'll be telling friends and family to read this one.

     The  only issue I found was the number of characters introduced in the first twenty-five pages. You almost need to take notes to keep track of everyone. I think it deprives the rest of the book in a way. Adding that number of characters a little at a time gives the reader a chance to weigh each character and decide whodunit.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because despite the issue I found, this one will make your flesh crawl.

Hollywood Hollyweird Part 2: Last Ditch Effort! by Arthur Norman

        Art Jr is back! This time things have changed just a bit. He's not exactly on the path he hope to be on. He;s loving life. Loving family and enjoying himself. Art Jr hopes to find a way into Hollywood many don't think about at first. He has the talent,but does he have the material? Right now life is good and Art Jr knows it can only get better.

     This second book has  Mr.Norman, Jr's humor and so much mire. Again, it's a quick read but the information inside will keep the conversation going for hours. I  enjoy the way he talks of Hollywood and then of  his family. Show he has the right frame of mind.

     Again, the only issue is the wish for a longer book.

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because I know Mr. Norman, Jr has  more good Hollywood stories to share.

Hollywood: Hollyweird: How People Survive & Make It! by Art Norman Jr

     Art meets his biological father for the first time. The hit it off right away and Art Jr confides in his Dad about  his dream of Hollywood. Art the Sr had conquered  Hollywood in his own way and time. He gave his son a connection. 

     I liked this short book. Mr.Norman, Jr isn't afraid to tell you what he saw or experienced during his time in Hollywood. The good, the bad and the strange are brought forth for your entertainment. Mr. Norman, Jr does a terrific job of sharing these ....scenes, without too much detail. He does share a lot of humor though. It will make you want to wander Hollywood on your own.

The only issue I found was, the book was to short! I wanted to keep reading about these friends and strangers.

     I gave this one 4 cheers out of 5 because I think it could have been a longer and fuller book.
