Lauraine Snelling reads: Louise Penny

October is supposed to be fall, or so I thought for years. Now I think that this September just took over and has kept us, and much of the rest of the country, in warm weather. Due to lack of water,...

 

Lauraine Reads: Waiting for Sparks

A new voice in the romance field! Waiting for Sparks by Kathy Damp shows a fresh approach to what we used to call sweet romances. All the characters in this small town of Heaven are one of a kind....

 

'Such A Time' by Kate Breslin

A June evening, a delightful breeze at the end of a 90 degree day, sitting out on my deck, flowers in pots, the fountain running, apcat not thrilled that the computer is on my lap instead of her, a...

 

Lauraine Reads: Sadie's Secret

I love Spring when so many perennials are blooming: roses, peonies, irises, snow ball bush, candytuft and poppies, just to name a few. But this year I have something new, not in the garden growing...

 

Lauraine Reads: 'All the Light We Cannot See'

Here I am again, thanking my Bookies Reading Group for coercing me – well not quite, but you know what I mean – to read a book I would not normally have picked up. All the Light We Cannot See by...

 

Lauraine Reads: Maisie Dobbs

Spring is here, spring is here. Well, almost. But no matter; any time is good reading time. I had the crud earlier and spent the entire week reading. Between going through the tissue boxes and...

 

Lauraine reads: Miracle in a Dry Season

Winter is a fine time for reading, as we all know, but I offer to you the suggestion that any time is a fine time for reading. Yes, I do understand, the more you read, the more you want to read and...

 

Lauraine reviews Susan Meissner's books

How about starting off the New Year revisiting a previously read author? I’m suggesting that because I have been reading through Susan Meissner’s impressive list of books and becoming more...

 

Lauraine Reads: "Truth be Told" & "Chasing Hope"

Fall always makes me think of children kicking and jumping on raked-up piles of leaves and laughter. Always laughter. It doesn’t really take a lot to entertain kids, a pile of leaves, a clod of dirt...

 

Lauraine Reads: The Cross Examination of Oliver Finney

It seems so strange to me that schools here in California start in August. In my mind, school starts right after Labor Day, unless you are attending college which usually begins later in September. I...

 

Lauraine Reads: Welcome to Last Chance

This month my favorite household appliances are window fans. Since I live in an older house sans air conditioning, these fans are heaven sent. Add in an ice-filled bandana for my neck and a cool glass...

 

Lauraine Reads: Hoot, Flush and Chomp

Heat wave. We’re having a heat wave! I’m thinking of summer songs when it might be cooler to be thinking about winter snow songs. However, the plants are growing like crazy, the flowers are...

 

Lauraine Reads: Modoc

All hail to the upcoming summer. I love watching the sun rise over the eastern hills. It is moving farther north every day and is almost beyond the cedar tree barrier in my yard now. The trees are...

 

Lauraine Reads: More Than Petticoats

This is one of those winters where I am really grateful I live in California. We had snow in December, and – while more would be welcome – our snowplows remain parked. We pray for any drop of...
