It's 1796, and traveling weaver Will Rees is visiting Salem, Massachusetts. He's in town to buy a luxurious gift for his pregnant wife, a few yards of well-made fabric from the traders at the famed Salem harbor. While traveling through Salem, however, Rees comes upon a funeral procession for the deceased Mrs. Antiss Boothe. When Rees happens upon Twig, a friend who fought alongside him in the war, he learns that Mrs. Boothe had been very ill, and her death had not come as a surprise. But the next morning, the town is abuzz with the news that Mr. Boothe has also died--and this time it is clearly murder. When the woman that Twig loves falls under suspicion, Twig persuades Rees to stay in Salem, despite the family waiting for him back home in Maine, and help solve the murder. Rees is quickly pulled into the murky politics of both Salem and the Boothe family, who have long been involved in the robust shipping and trading industry on the Salem harbor. Everyone Rees meets seems to be keeping some kind of secret, but could any of them actually have committed murder? Will Rees returns in Death in Salem, the next delightful historical mystery from MB/MWA First Novel Competition winner Eleanor Kuhns.

REVIEW
 On his way home, Will Rees was on his way home.  Twig, his friend asks for help with a murder investigation.  Rees just wanted to go home to his wife, Lydia,   He didn't quite understand how he became involved in this investigation.  Maybe Lydia would come and help?  For the plot of the book, the time period is very suitable, but I sure am glad I didn't live back then.  Women were second class citizens, not allowed to get an education, couldn't read, no phones, and travel was by horse and buggy.  Men did things like being a sailor or a merchant.  Jacob Boothe was a wealthy merchant and it wasn't a good thing for him.  Maybe his money is what got him murdered.  It wasn't who the murderer of one person, but now it was three.  Will this put Will in danger.?  After you read a few pages you become a part of the story.  The author put in some wonderful characters and fit them in perfectly for the time period.  Ms. Kuhns will keep you guessing until the end.  I would recommend this well written, mystery murder, historical fiction story to anyone.  Get a copy and go on this journey to figure out who the murderer was. If you can?

I was given a complimentary copy of DEATH IN SALEM from te author, Eleanor Kuhns and NightOwl Reviews for my view of the book.

ASSAULT IN FORGOTTEN ALLEY by David Y.B. Kaufmann





4 STARS


ASSAULT IN FORGOTTEN ALLEY
A Scotch and Herring Mystery
 by
David Y.B. Kaufmann



SUMMARY
(from Amazon)
The year is 1958. The time of the Cold War and Civil Rights Movement.

A Black teenager is found beaten in a Jewish alley. Detective James McCallum, with only a handful of clues, calls on his once estranged friend, Rabbi Drew Aldala, for help. Their investigation leads them to jazz trumpeter Tucker Wilson—and to secrets of his past that threaten the present. Assault in Forgotten Alley explores the struggle for friendship and the differences that fascinate us . . . and often turn us against each other.

Assault in Forgotten Alley is the second installment of the Scotch & Herring Mystery series


AUTHOR
David Kaufmann has a PhD in English and has taught several courses in Literature, Composition, and Jewish Studies. In addition to his fiction, he has written numerous essays, articles, and poems. He has also edited a wide variety of material from medical texts to chess books, and much in between. He writes a weekly blog, which can be accessed at davidybkaufmann.com. Assault in Forgotten Alley is the first novel-length Scotch & Herring Mystery. He previously published Rampage on Rogers Avenue, which introduces the series. He is also the author of The Silent Witness, a young adult book set in pre-Katrina New Orleans, and Trees & Forest: A Mystery, a post-Katrina mystery set around Tulane University. David Kaufmann and his wife have seven children. They live in New Orleans.


REVIEW
SETTING: 1958 This is a well written but with an interesting plot.  The author, Mr. Kaufmann put in small details which made the story and the characters so real.    The story could be place in this year since the morals are true to that time period but also fits today.  This is a timeless story.  Once you pick up the book and start reading, you won't want to put it down.   The background story adds to the  plot of the story.  The story is rather slow at the beginning but give it some time and it will pick up. Mr. Kaufmann takes the reader on a journey that you don't expect but well worth the trip.   The is a book that the entire family could read.  No explicit scenes. 
I would recommend this book to anyone.   One thing I definitely liked is that it is a family read and there aren't a lot off them around. 


I was given a complimentary copy of ASSAULT IN FORGOTTEN ALLEY from the author, David Y.B. Kaufmann for my view of the book.

I would give this book 4 STARS.

REVIEW
My husband and I have had several  phone mounts and they're laying around here in a box somewhere.  Wasted money.  This one is made to attach to any smooth surface with the suction cup. You push a lever and pull up to release to get the best grip you can.  A ball and socket joint attaches to the phone mount portion. Easy, stick the ball inside the joint and tighten the nut and your phone mount will hold at that particular angle.
The entire thing is spring loaded.  When you need to remove your phone, you simply press the button on the right side of the mount.  The two arms that hold your phone will slowly move outward.  In reverse, if you want to insert your phone, squeeze the arms together, you'll hear them click shut.  One hand is needed to put in and take out your phone from the mount.  If you need to adjust the angle you will need to use both hands.
Even driving over some really rough streets, the phone mount holds your phone sturdy and it doesn't shake or drop out. This is the best phone mount I've found so far.  I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a sturdy, durable phone mount for their car.

WILDERNESS RISING by A.L. Shields

WILDERNESS RISING
A Church Builder Novel
by
A.L. SHIELDS



HER FRIENDS THINK SHE'S GUILTY
HER ENEMIES WANT TO RECRUIT HER.


Product Details


SUMMARY (from Amazon)
From A. L. Shields—pseudonym for New York Times bestselling author Stephen L. Carter—comes the thrilling sequel to The Church Builder.
It began as a search for the truth about her best friend’s death. Now Bethany Barclay is caught in the ultimate struggle to keep faith alive.
The Wilderness, an ancient cabal bent on destroying Christianity, has murdered Bethany’s best friend, framed her for acts of terrorism, and captured the brilliant teen hacker she vowed to protect. To ransom the girl, Bethany must traverse England and Europe to find the Pilate Stone—a mysterious first-century artifact that might not even exist.
She’s not the only one who wants the stone. The Garden, a powerful group of intellectuals sworn to save the Church and help Bethany, is willing to betray her to achieve their higher goals. And a mysterious third faction lurks in the shadows, waiting for her to stumble.
Alone and on the run in this international landscape of double and triple agents, Bethany’s quest becomes an ever more complex and dangerous contest against players who don’t play fair.
In this riveting sequel to The Church Builder, many of A. L. Shield’s cunning characters are ruthlessly devoted to preserving a world where faith is possible. Others aim to brutally, and finally, undermine belief.
Including Bethany’s.

About the Author
A. L. Shields is a pseudonym for Stephen L. Carter, William Nelson Cromwell Professor of Law at Yale, where he has taught for thirty years. He is also the author of seven acclaimed works of nonfiction and five best-selling novels. His first novel, The Emperor of Ocean Park (2002), spent eleven weeks on the New York Times best seller list.

REVIEW
 This is a book about searching for ancient artifacts, espionage and lots of action.  This is Book Two of the Church Builder series.  I didn't, but I would suggest reading Book One first since Book Two picks up where Book One leaves off. Annabelle Seavers left some clues to find the Pilate Stone before she died.  Now Bethany Barclay is following her friends clues.  The problem is Bethany is running from the FBI and other law enforcements.    Following Annabelle's clues she went to England to save her friend, Janice from an untimely death during two weeks of the  Wilderness.  She is always moving, running from the law so she has to pay for everything by cash and always looking over her shoulder.
The author kept the action at peak level to keep the reader  wrapped  up in this novel.  You wondered what was around the next corner.  What would Bethany find?Bethany used her intelligence and wit to stay alive.  This is a battle between good and evil and captivates the readers into thinking of the spiritual battles that constantly  happen every minute.  The story makes the reader think long and hard about those spiritual battles and their prayers and faith.

I received a complimentary copy of WILDERNESS RISING from the author A.L.Shields and BookLoook Blogging for my view of the book.

I would give this book 5 STARS.

REVIEW
I didn't know what to expect to get when I agreed to do a review.   This is a nice large massaging stick.  17 inches long and the massage part is about 9 inches.  That covers most of your back. It  has 7 rolling massagers that have handles at both ends.  There is a strap at one end for carrying or hanging up wen you are done.  It is durable and constructed well.  It comes in different colors but I was sent the orange and black colors.  I found that the massage stick gives a real good back massage that easies that tension from a days work or a day of dealing with a couple of kids.

BLESSING by Lyn Cote

"HOW CAN I CONVINCE THEE I CANNOT AFFORD TO LOVE THEE?"


BLESSING
Quaker Brides
Book Two
by
Lyn Cote



SUMMARY
(FROM AMAZON)
An impetuous love swept Blessing Brightman away from the Quaker community, into the highest ranks of Cincinnati society. But behind the glitter of ballroom and parlor, her spirit slowly eroded in an increasingly dangerous marriage. Widowed young, determined never to lose her independence again, Blessing reclaimed her faith and vowed to use her influence to fight for women’s rights and abolition.

Gerard Ramsay, scion of a wealthy Boston family, arrives in Cincinnati hoping to escape his father’s clutches with a strategy that will gain him independence. His plan is soon complicated, however, by the enchanting widow. Never before has a woman spoken as if she’s his equal―or challenged him to consider the lives of others.

In a city nearly ablaze with racial tensions quickly dividing the country, can two people worlds apart possibly find common ground?

STRONG WOMEN.
BRAVE STORIES.

AUTHOR
Lyn Cote' is the award-winning critically acclaimed author of more than thirty five novels.
Her books have been RITA Award finalist and Holt Medallion and Carol Award winners. Lyn and her husband have two grown children and live on a small, beautiful lake in northern Wisconsin.


REVIEW
Blessing Brightman is a Quaker widow, influential and very wealthy.  She lived in the Cincinnati area in the mid 1800's.  She is an Abolitionist and Women's Rights advocate.   She was also part of the underground railroad.  The author wrote a wonderful historical novel along with so many things to learn about this time period and the people living at that time.  Cincinnati speakers included Sojourner Truth and Frederick Douglas.  The author must have done a lot of research to have written such a realistic book. I've not read anything from this author except this book and I'm going to find Book One to read.  This was quite a read, interesting and a learning experience.  I would recommend this book to anyone who likes historical novels.  


I received a complimentary copy of BLESSING from the author, Lyn Cote and Tyndale Blog Network for my view of the book.

I would give this book 5 STARS.
