One Foot in the Grape | Carlene O'Neil

Pickpick

As I was staring out my office window into the winter wonderland that had been created outside, I decided to do a blog post for the most recent book I finished, "One Foot in the Grape" by Carlene ONeill. This was a fun and quick book to help me through this awful reading slump I've been in. It follows Penelope aka Penny as she runs a winery and must get to the bottom of who is trying to sabotage a family friends winery.

TheAromaofBooks That is some serious snow!! Where are you? We only got a couple inches here in Ohio and now it's gone again, 3w
Callemarie @TheAromaofBooks I'm about 40 mins outside of Cleveland. This pic was taken tuesday 3w

Callemarie @BethM I could only imagine yalls winters. No thank you!!! Haha 3w
TheAromaofBooks Oh yes, I'm much further south than you - southeast of Columbus towards the Hocking Hills. Mom told me the Farmers' Almanac predicts a lot of snow this winter, so we'll see what happens! 3w
Callemarie @TheAromaofBooks ugh dont tell me that. I have to start going back into the office starting today. I can't have this winter being bad 😭😭😭 3w

I decided to go the audio route for this one and I wasnt disappointed at all. Billy does a great job of narrating his book and really creating this raw story of his family and the road to solving crimes. It really is a wonderful story and it made me feel as though Billy is someone you want in your corner at your darkest hour. Def 5 stars for this!

Reviewsbylola This one is on my TBR. Can‘t wait to read it! I‘ll probably go the audio route too. 3w
Crazeedi Wow, sounds intense! And good!! 3w
Moonprismpower Oooh I listen to his podcast the Murder Squad with Paul Holes. I love MFM also and just got this book as a holiday gift for a fellow murderino. I have to say I love the idea of regular people not even realizing they could help solve a crime! And I plan to listen to this book also. 2w

Even when you're trying to watch your weight, count your calories, get 10k steps in in a day. When you're showered and relaxing on the couch.... sometimes nothing beats a glass of your favorite beer. I'm enjoying this without feeling guilty and snuggling up to finish this book. Cheers to the majority of the week being behind us. 🍻🍺

"I wish I could believe in an afterlife. More than anything. For me, death is not a door or a window. It is the most terrifying thing I can think of. It's the definition of nothing. And no one should assume the right to deliver another into that abyss before their time."
Thats the best damn thing I've hesrd/read in a book in a long time.

Some listen to rap. Others listen to heavy metal. But when I workout, I listen to everything true crime.

Twainy I listen to audiobooks or podcasts on the elliptical. I thought music would distract me but the books are the trick. Sadly I just found out that hoopla doesn‘t work well in the gym (no internet connection) ... that last 5 minutes was grueling ... so from now on I use my audible account in the gym! 😁 1mo

Sooo I'm still on the fence about how I feel about this book. It def didnt scare me but I had a hard time focusing on it too. I did like the end of it which I think is what helped me to give it a thumbs up. I finished the show last week and I'm still having nightmares of that. I'd like to hear people's thoughts on the book for sure.

mdm139 I loved this book. I actually screamed at one point. 1mo
Chrissyreadit I thought it was a good story and liked it but it was unusual for me to like a book with so many dislikable characters. 1mo
PSreads73 I just purchased the book and the show on blu ray. I will be reading the book first. There have also been 2 movies made about the book. The movies are both titled The Haunting. One I think is from the 60”s the other is 1999. The movies aren‘t rated very high though. 1mo
Callemarie @PSreads73 the show is LOOOOOOOSELY based on the book. I say that because you could watch the show and nothing would be spoiled in the book. The show was great I thought 1mo

Decided to take a walk and listen to an audiobook on this beautiful fall but chilly day. @DeweysReadathon

Does anyone have this problem where they start off really strong in the beginning of the year with their reading goal and then burn out by summer/fall? I have 35 books left to read by the end of the year and guys the struggle is for real right now. Any tips or suggestions are always welcomed. Xoxo

ravenlee When I feel like I‘m barely making any headway, I like to read some middle grade novels. They go quickly and still feel like full stories. Graphic novels give me a boost, too, but I‘m really picky about them. Good luck! 2mo
Lucy_Anywhere I find reading novellas is a good way of getting a boost - a couple of hours will get you a book closer to your goal! 2mo
Jhullie Audible. I listen when my eyes are too tired to focus. I have headphones for vacuuming and put my phone in my pocket while hanging out my laundry to keep ‘reading‘ while doing chores as well as the usual commute to and from work. 2mo
Cailey_Mac Audible for sure! I find it difficult to follow fantasy books unless I‘m resting, but I can do chores and such listening to any contemporary or non fiction work; it‘s a great way to get books done in s timely fashion without feeling like you‘re “wasting” time. 2mo

I def get why this book was so popular for many and not so popular with others. Overall I enjoyed it. No, alot or the kid stuff didnt resonate with me but there were parts that definitely hit close to home. I'd recommend this for anyone who just wants a quick read but is looking for a little inspiration or motivation

What a sad but so sweet story. You follow 6 year old Aoife (ee-fah) as she searches for the truth surrounding the death of her older brother. The adults around her wont tell her what happened and dont give her enough credit when it comes to how smart she is. I flew through this story so I'd you're looking for a good and quick read I do recommend this. There is a religious undertone to it so if you're not into that you've been warned.

This story really intrigued me from start to finish. It really was a heart breaking story showing, even as the writer says in her authors note, how broken our justice system is, but also heartbreaking because it is world crushing to learn the people you love have secrets and are not who you always imagined them to be I really enjoyed this book. Trigger warning for rape

Wow this book is amazing and I couldnt put it down. It definitely was the best mystery/suspense/thriller I have read in a long time. I loved Flynn's character and found dollar bill to be the best bad guy I've come across in a long time. I highly recommend this book and will definitely be visiting more of cavanaghs novels.

I read a bunch of reviews on this where people either didnt believe it happened or the story just didnt add up. My oooonly comment I have is that nothing surprises me. If, what is written in this book, is 100% true then my heart breaks for Westover. Religion and the things people do for it just will never cease to amaze me. I listened to the audio and overall enjoyed the book. This is also my third book completed for #24in48 @24in48

IvoryLunatic The way I see it is that different people perceive and remember situations differently, especially when it‘s so tragic. 5mo
Lauram I believe there‘s a whole lot of truth in this book. She suffered from so much trauma and abuse by those she should have been able trust. 5mo
