Summer Reading Club Review: Storm Prey

From Leslie Liebman

Title: Storm Prey

Author: John Sandford

Great read! Sandford’s novels are always filled with interesting characters, a complex plot that draws the reader in, with a smart ending that satisfactorily ties up all the loose ends. I definitely recommend this book as well as Sandford’s other novels.

Summer Reading Club Reviews: Murder In The West Wing

From Terry Gustafson

Title: Murder In The West Wing

Author: Elliott Roosevelt

I found this book on the for sale rack at the library. So I thought I would give it a read,because I love mysteries.If you like a bit of history with your murder mystery than you will like this novel. It moves along at a rapid pace explaining how Mrs Eleanor Roosevelt(who just happens to be the First Lady) gets involved with the murder that takes place downstairs in the many offices that run the White House. It’s style & many of the expressions the author uses are from the 1930’s. There are twelve other murder mysteries in the series.It was an interesting read.

Summer Reading Club Reviews: Dancing Fish and Ammonites: A Memoir

From Elaine Pasquali

Title: Dancing Fish and Ammonites: A Memoir

Author: Penelope Lovely

Ms. Lovely looks back on her eighty years and at the phenomenon of old age. Ms. Lovely spent her early childhood in Cairo. Because of the impact of the war on North Africa, she attended boarding school in England. She spent most of her adult life in the UK. Her vantage point is set into this sociohistorical context, which should have enhanced the book. Instead, I found it a distraction. Ms Lovely digressed so much into context that her memoir became an aside. Rarely do I not finish a book, but midway through this one I lost interest .
