#SoaringScores #CatchUp
Set in the Scottish Highlands with boats, hills & fog, I think this book works as a catch up for #LeavingPort #MistyMountains & #TheSkyeBoatSong 😉Finished early in the week. The usual Colgan sweet & a nice revisit to the characters from The Bookshop on the Corner with a new MC helping out Nina. I wasn‘t sure of Zoe at first but she won me over & I adored the two young boys Hari & Patrick. Not my favorite but easy & good.

DebinHawaii I just realized the description must be for the British version as the MC & son‘s names are totally different. Odd. 🤔 (edited) 3w
Cinfhen And very odd in regards to the publisher 3w
CrowCAH Sounds like a quaint little book shop! 3w

#SoaringScores #LeavingPort #Titanic #JamesHorner


I don‘t have a Titanic book, but in the Aubrey/Maturin series, they are constantly coming and leaving ports. And if a person was press ganged into service, they‘d soon find themselves leaving port.

Cinfhen You don‘t have any Titanic books??? I‘m shocked 😱 4w
CrowCAH @Cinfhen I know it‘s un”sinkable”! 😉 4w
Cinfhen Hahaha 😂😂😂 4w

Poirot May have been expecting a pleasant cruise down the Nile after #LeavingPort, but it was never going to be uneventful!

It has been so many years since I read this, but I recall pieces of this story. Charlotte is strong and opinionated and ends up working alongside a crew on a ship. #LeavingPort #SoaringScores

Big Brother: A Novel | Lionel Shriver
post image

#SoaringScores Finished this book the other day. Lionel Shriver has a knack for creating characters who are completely human with all their flaws and not too pretty personality traits. This book sees Edison, a once svelte talented musician #LeavingPort(ly) behind as he grows morbidly obese. Enter his sister Pandora, who makes it her mission to reverse Edison‘s weighty situation. Sharp & insightful writing. Wasn‘t thrilled with a certain twist😲

Centique I love “leavingport(ly)” 😂😂 1mo
Cinfhen Hehehehe 😂thanks @Centique 1mo
KarenUK Clever! 😂💕 (edited) 4w

#SoaringScores Day 16: This is a #LeavingPort book - Set in a remote fishing village in the Philippines, Nina persisted and convinced her Lolo that she is perfectly capable of baiting her own hook and removing her own fish - even if she is a girl. My full review: https://wp.me/pDlzr-jeX

CrowCAH Nice way to “leave port”! 1mo
