Why no new books have been reviewed

I know that some are wondering why no new reviews have been posted. The biggest reason is that on August 17, 2009, my Eternal Companion died of sudden cardiac arrest. It was quick and not part of my plan. However, I do know that he had finished his mission in this life, and is helping to prepare for the Savior's second coming. Needless to say that I haven't been ready much, except for his journals.
I thank all who have sent emails, cards, letters, thoughts, and prayers my way. Everything and everyone has been so thoughtful. My girls and I are doing ok, even though it is hard on them and me to go along without Randy, but with the support of all our friends and family, we will make it. We know that we will be with him again, and that Christ is there for us.
Hopefully it will be soon when there will be a new review up.
Right now I'm reading "Guide Me To Eternity." A book that I first read to Randy, several years ago, while we were traveling somewhere. I never realized that I would be in a similar position as the author of this terrific book.

The books I've been reading

I've been reading a lot this Summer. As my husband has said many times, I don't read a book, I devour it. This is a very true statement. I've been know to stay up for hours just to finish a book, even if I am tired the next day. Of course along with reading is the buying, and several stores have seen me over the Summer. Being email and Facebook friends with several LDS authors encourages my habit of intensive reading.
Early this summer I was priveleged to meet a wonderful person, who happens to be an author of fine fiction. We have become good email friends and finally were able to meet. Of course, I had to acquire and read her latest book.

The author and my friend is Lynn Gardner. Her latest book is Pursued A Maggie McKenzie Mystery.
Newspaper Editor Maggie McKenzie heads off on a search to discover the truth about her two brothers, who were declared dead at the time of their birth. Her search takes her to England, and very quickly Maggie finds herself involved in a terrorist plot, which might involve someone she knows.
Once again Lynn has woven a clean, thrilling mystery, which will keep you on the edge of your seat and up until the last page has been turned.
