The Sundown Motel
by Simone St James


Very good story! I love a good mystery story and the ghosts added in were a good mix! The haunting didn't seem over-the-top and was just enough for me. There were a few creepy parts (children ghosts always freak me out). This is the first I've read by this author but definitely not the last!
 
 


The Perfect Couple
by Elin Hilderbrand


I always enjoy reading her novels especially in the summertime. .didn't expect the ending. Good read~ good escape?????
 
 


Hideaway
by Nora Roberts


I really liked this book! It sucked me in and I'm glad I listened to it because I kept it on while I did my daily routine (otherwise only reading would've been done!)! As always, the writing was superb. I didn't expect anything less from this author. I like her format of starting the story when the character is young and developing it as the years go by. The romance wasn't the main focus and instead it was of Caitlyn Sullivan and her family member's lives; her twisted "mother" plotting against them and then how they moved on as best they could. THEN you get the romance. Perfectly laid out and something I wouldn't mind reading again in the future!
 
 


Sense And Sensibility
by Jane Austen


This book is just as good the 6th time I've read it as it was the first time! In fact, I pick up more detail with each reading. There is nothing in here that would cause you to blush while reading it aloud to children, but just enough romance to make you smile or sigh.
 
 


The Stand
by Stephen King


Probably one of Stephen King's best works, The Stand begins with a believable viral outbreak. In the post viral-apocalyptic world, a demonic power rises to prominence and a battle begins between good and evil. Spoiler alert: Good wins. A lot of the key figures die in the story, which makes the story better, oddly enough. It's more believable when important characters are subject to the same problems as less important characters.
 
 


Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them
by Jk Rowling


Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a spinoff from the popular Harry Potter book series and was written as part of a fundraiser. Rowlings writing, as usual, doesn't disappoint! The only reason I give this book 4 stars and not 5 stars is that more about the diets, exercise habits, etc. of these magical creatures would have added to the realism. This is more of a synopsis. Newt Scamander spent significant time with the beasts, so we know more information would have been available for the book.
 
 


The Dutch House
by Ann Patchett


I LOOOVED this book. I listened to it on Audible and Tom Hanks is the perfect narrator.
 
 


Lost and Found
by Orson Scott Card


Ezekial is a 14 year old boy who has a micropower - he finds things that are lost and he's able to find their owner. He's been accused of being a thief and has a bad history of police officers, but when Shank (an FBI agent) convinces him to help with a missing girl case, Ezekial hesitantly helps out. This is a story of courage, teenage strife, and harnessing your potential - SOOO GOOD! :-)
