Murder in Paradise (Inspector Faro Mysteries) by Alanna Knight
Murder in Paradise (Inspector Faro Mysteries)

kmkoenen, August 5, 2010

Set in 1860, this tale of intrigue is a great page-turner.

Jeremy Faro has been sent from Edinburgh to Kent to catch a jewel thief. By the time he arrives, however, the trail has gone cold. Despite the lack of leads, Faro's superiors direct him to stay in Kent and keep looking. While there, Faro runs into a childhood friend, Erland, only to discover that Erland is about to marry a woman Faro strongly suspects of murdering her previous fiance while living under a different name. As suspicion morphs into intrigue, it becomes increasingly difficult for a reader to put the book down.

The Army of the Republic by Stuart Archer Cohen
The Army of the Republic

kmkoenen, January 18, 2010

All too close to reality, and yet not quite close enough. I've been waiting for (and trying to foment) the revolution for years, to now avail. After reading 3/4 of Choen's novel, I want to join the Army of the Republic. Engrossing from the opening sentence, I resented the fact that my job got in the way of my reading time. I can't wait to finish it, and yet am reluctant for this particular ride to come to an end. I was particularly pleased with the way that each chapter furthers the story from the perspective of different characters. Cohen clearly has an important message; my fear is that the people who need to read, and recognize the the truths raised by in this novel won't even bother to pick it up.

The Book of Bright Ideas: by Sandra Kring
The Book of Bright Ideas:

kmkoenen, May 5, 2009

The Book of Bright Ideas is an enchanting novel of childhood, wonder, and a number of family secrets. Engaging from first to last, I was delighted to meet these people--particularly Aunt Verdella, who poignantly reminded me of one of my own aunts. Furthermore, as the book came to a close, I'd become so attached to Button, Winnalee, and all, I was sorry to see them go.
