    Re: THE WRONG FAMILY by Tarryn Fisher

    I agree with your assessment, Amy---a well-done and creatively crafted tale. Psychological suspense at its best. The outcome is unpredictable so the twists and turns keep the reader engaged.

    The author of “Orphan Train” does it again—-a well-researched book based on actual events. The story revolves around the experiences of women convicts sent from Britain to Australia to serve their...

    "The Paris Library" by Janet Charles

    Very different from "The Midnight Library" but, in its own way, a compelling story. A little known chapter in WWII history is woven into an excellent read. It links Paris and, of all places, Montana!...

  18. "False Assurances"---especially for sailors

    This book by Christopher Rosow is the first in the Ben Porter series and a fine start. Without giving away too much, I can say the descriptions of sailing were obviously written by someone who has...
