From Elaine Pasquali

Title: Sex, Murder and a Double Latte

Author: Kyra Davis

This was Ms. Davis’ first novel and it was so enjoyable that I will certainly seek out others. In a situation of life imitating art, Sophie, a chic-lit author, is involved in a series of murders that are following one of her mystery novels. Is Anatoly, Sophie’s new boyfriend, a serial killer? Is Sophie the serial killer’s ultimate victim? First considered paranoid by the police and then considered a suspect, Sophie and her friends, Mary Ann and Dena, decide they must solve the murders before Sophie is killed.   The novel is a delightful mixture of suspense and comedy.

Summer Reading Club Review: The Astronaut Wives Club

From Aimee Prole

Title: The Astronaut Wives Club

Author: Lily Koppel

After watching the tv show I just had to read the book. I love true books as my daughter calls them. There was so much to learn behind the scenes of the Moon Landing. I found everything very interesting and as a mother myself connected with the wives on certain aspects. The wives did so much, I’m surprised they weren’t mentioned or no one else wrote a book until now. Especially since they had Life writers following them. Overall a great book but so many characters and events that you have to read over to connect everything.

This was the amazing biography of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who joined the Air Corps in WWII. His plane crashed in the Pacific, and he survived for a month and a half in a life raft, only to be found by the Japanese. He then spent 2 1/2 years enduring unspeakable physical and emotional abuse in POW camps. This was truly an amazing story of how Louis survived, and then later thrived after the war.
