I was looking for a new book for my great-nephew and happened upon this one. I love children's books written in a singsong rhyming style reminiscent of Dr. Seuss and this book was just what I was looking for.
The cadence of the rhyme along with the skillful illustrations rapidly engages the youngster's attention as they follow the characters on their search for the 'golden ruler,' A fun and enjoyable read, this book also imparts an important lesson for youngsters without being preachy.
My great-nephew thoroughly enjoyed it and, I hope, took away with him a valuable concept.
I can recommend this book without reservation to any who have young children in their lives
When Emlyn Goode’s mother returns to Niagara Falls for a high school reunion, so does murder. During the reunion, a woman’s body is found in the ladies room. Is this killing connected to one that occurred 40 years before in the woods below the town of Lewiston? Harry Woodward, a young police officer working his first murder case suspected Emlyn’s mother of the crime, although there wasn’t enough evidence to arrest her.
Home from a year-long leave, Harry—now the Niagara Falls Chief of Detectives—together with Emlyn’s friend, Detective Roger Frey, investigates the latest killing. Distraught over indications her mother might have been involved in both murders, Emlyn, with her cohort, Rebecca Nurse, sets out to prove otherwise. But, danger lurks in the shadows when amateurs—even ones with witchy skills—get involved with murder.
The third installment of the Emlyn Goode mystery series was the best yet. The Emlyn-Roger curve ball kept me on pins and needles, and I couldn't read fast enough to find out if it would be resolved. Another good job, Susan Solomon. On to the next one!
When you meet your match, temporary has the knack of becoming permanent!
Rae set eyes on Phillip and knew she was in danger. But his secretary had warned her that he was off-limits. Rae wasn’t there for love and affection. She was there to do a job.

And her frumpish dress code did not appeal.
Phillip had spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. She was beauty personified. And he was smitten. The first week that Phillip worked with Rae he felt the chemistry. But he was drawn to the woman at the pub. He made sure to be at the pub so that he could get to talk to her. He was in for such a surprise.
Once Phillip realized who Rae was it was as if he had met his other half. From their first date, his life seemed to change. Rae did what she was good at. Making changes. And Phillip was in for a change

A HARROWING ESCAPE FROM RUSSIAN OCCUPIED POLAND IN 1913 - FROM THE PAGES OF GRANDFATHER'S LIFE BY VIV DREWA
This is a grandfather's true story of his frightening and perilous journey to freedom from occupied Poland behind the Iron Curtain in 1913. So many of these true stories of our family member's bravery have been lost because they didn't want to talk about it. It is a tiny glimpse into a man's soul.
In nineteen-thirteen, when Lucjen finds out that he will be drafted into the Russian military, and forced to fight his friends and neighbors for the Russian Czar. He and his friend Franciszek, join twenty other people in an harrowing escape to the Americas.
Ms. Drewa's short story of her grandfather's escape holds all the fear, terror, and hardship one would expect if they themself were living through it.
I hope that Ms. Drewa turns this suspense filled story into a novella. This brief glimpse into the times leaves one begging for more.
Kudos to Viv Drewa for taking on the telling of her grandfather's journey. A must read for both history buffs and those who love adventure, and suspense.
EVEN PREGNANT LAURA IS STILL A CORPSE MAGNET - LEFT FOR DEAD - BOOK 6 OF THE LAURA & GERRY MYSTERIES BY KAREN VAUGHAN
Things are really starting to heat up in the Fitz family. Even pregnant, Laura can't stay out of harms way after Gerry’s cousin and best buddy is left for dead after a beating. When the thugs responsible find out he didn’t die, the game is on to keep Pete safe until he has to testify. After finding a body on a mountain trail in cottage country Laura helps a local police officer solve the crime while waiting for the birth of her first baby.
I think Karen Vaughan must have fun every time she sits down to write a story,Thankfully the humor and fun come through n her books and readers get a delightful read that also adds in murder, mystery and suspense. The novels with Laura and Gerry are a series that can also be read as stand alone books, I highly recommend all of them because readers will love the characters the author has created. In this story, murder and mystery connect to mob ties and the adventure is on. For me, I loved that a neighbor of Laura and Gerry's and a tenant in the building they manage is the one caught up in murder. Through the books, I have found, Stella is the character you love to hate. Grabbing a book by this author always guarantees a good read, a fun story and a murderous adventure
Left for Dead by Karen Vaughan, is witty and intelligently told mystery story. It’s the 6th in the Laura and Gerry mysteries series and a delightfully penned book.
It seems even pregnancy will not stop Laura Fitz from being a corpse magnet, as she stumbles yet again onto another dead body. While Laura is talking to the police, she receives a phone call from hubby. Apparently, Laura’s gift or curse for discovering the dead and becoming embroiled in the nasty affairs of the murder has rubbed off on to Gerry, for he has found his cousin near death.
The Fitz’s have once again become entangled in murder, mayhem, the lives of others along with the danger it entails. But, through it, all Laura remains her witty self. Gerry doesn’t fair as well as his love for Laura and their coming baby, upset his judgement at times. After all, it is difficult to be objective when the life of one's wife is on the line.
Ms. Vaughan has another terrific read in Left for Dead. I enjoyed this book enormously and highly recommend it to everyone.
Martin and Clare Montgomery worked together as an archaeological team until Martin mysteriously died. Fearing the rumors of a curse Clare vowed to never return that was until a rare blue eyes owl began to haunt her dreams. Was this a sign from her beloved Martin or something more sinister?

THIS BOOK HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, MYSTERY AND ROMANCE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND OWL OF THE SIPAN LORD TO MYSTERY LOVERS EVERYWHERE! A FIVE STAR PAGE TURNER FOR SURE!
