Letters from Home by Kristina Mcmorris
Letters from Home

LuAnn, January 1, 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed Letters from Home and I expect the author to do very well with this debut novel. Well-written, nicely developed characters, excellent use of research … what more could a reader ask for! I'm especially looking forward to her next book.

Redemption by Laurel Dewey
Redemption

It's interesting how the author pulls the reader along with this book. She gives you just enough clues to make you think you know the answer to "whodunit," until you turn the page and wonder if it was someone else. You definitely are kept guessing, which is a plus for lovers of suspense novels. And throw in some antagonism between some of the main characters, charismatic suspects and tear-jerking murder and you have a combination that's sure to keep your mind within the pages.

Going Green Without Going Broke by Diedra "dd" Holley
Going Green Without Going Broke

LuAnn, April 23, 2011

I was actually quite impressed with this little book. It’s only 106 pages, but there is so much useful information packed into it. And the ideas truly are simple to implement and easy on the budget.
I think you’ll enjoy browsing this book. Not only does it provide some excellent suggestions on how to go green, it’s also well-written and fun to read.

I just can’t believe how well this book is written. It’s amazingly candid and I was totally gripped by the story. In fact, I couldn’t put it down and finished it within a couple days because I picked it up whenever I could squeeze in a few minutes to read.

The Life O'Reilly by Brian Cohen
The Life O'Reilly

LuAnn, May 5, 2010

Nick O’Reilly works for a law firm that expects its people to put their job first and foremost. Families, friends and a personal life are not important to the senior partners. If you’re going to be successful, sacrifices are expected to be made.

However, that attitude has also given the firm a bad reputation as being cold and impersonal (duh!). To change their image, they decide to designate a certain number of hours to pro bono cases. In other words, each lawyer is expected to do a case for free and work with the local legal aid to do that.

Certain of the senior partners seem to have it in for Nick. One in particular doesn’t like him and is always trying to make him look bad. So, guess which lawyer is the first to be assigned one of these cases?

Nick actually finds himself enjoying working to help others. It gives him an entirely new perspective and he begins looking at his life anew. Is the high-powered position worth it? Or are there more important things in life?

Along with this new attitude, Nick finds himself attracted to the client he’s been assigned to represent – a young woman who has been severely abused by her husband.

The book takes several turns and twists, including an interesting surprise ending. I found the story delightful and I thank Brian Cohen for asking me to review his book. He’s a wonderful writer and I hope to read more of his work in the future.
