May 27 #MayMoms #Hardworking When my kids were younger I wished I would grow arms so I could do more. Then they could dissappear. When I saw this I realized I might not have been the only one to have this wish. @Eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Eggs Wings would be nice too-great choice! 2d

Even though it's #8, it's a good stand alone book. I enjoyed all the twists and turns in this one. Easy to read, rounded characters and believable events.

I'm not usually into these books as I find the way woman were treated as sad. I would never have survived in this world. These books are so predictable as you know the couple would eventually find their true love. #NSR221 @Nessavamusic This is a Historical Romance

May 13 #MayMoms Single Mom I must say that I had this experience for about 6 years until I met a wonderful man who didn't mind marrying a woman with 4 daughters.I went to University and acquired my B.A., worked a part time job at Walmart & volunteered at my girls school.Ended up getting a teachers ed certificate to work in daycare & schools.I taught my girls to be strong woman and get a good education.I think my best self came being a single mom

@Nessavamusic AContemporaryRomance. This book is kinky and unrealistic.What men would only want one wife between them.There are so many questions as to why 3 brothers would choose to live together and have 1 wife.According to the story this is a generational thing as their parents did it and grandparents did it.Don't get me started on the sex scenes!I felt like it was porn.Poor woman must have been exhausted with the appetite of these men.#NSR221

#MayMoms, May 3 Judgmental. I remember thinking when I would go to public places where people would look at me when my kids would have a tantrum or do something and the looks I would get.

This book was ok. The main character is a hot head private detective who meets a woman reporter. They said it's a thriller but it's not gory enough. It should be classified as a mystery romance. It was quite a page turner with a slight twist at the end that I never saw coming

This is a pretty good suspense thriller. Kept me guessing until the end. I just finished watching the series "The Thing About Pam" and she was reading this author and had sticky notes all over the book. Lol I'm not sure if it gave her ideas for how to kill a person.

I love John Connelly and this series, this being number 18. This authors vocabulary is exceptional and after I have read one of his novels I feel unfulfilled with the writing of others. Most authors seem to write for grade 10 English but this one makes me stop and look at the words that I usually never see. It's fabulous. And the story line is great too. Love Angel and Louis, Parkers sidekicks.

#NSR22 @Nessavamusic Noir Mystery. This was a good novel, lots of twists that I never saw coming. The murder was brutal. The Police at the time (as it happened in the 1940's) were horrible in their methods and really prejudiced and racists. I would shake my head at the brutality of the police of the day.

Nessavamusic I have pondered reading this one, but I have to be in the right head space for it. 2mo
