ON BORROWED TIME By Jenn McKinlay

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!


Thanks to the Meridian Library for my copy. Who would expect to find themselves in a spy tale when in the library? It all starts in the 5th book of Library Lover series. Lindsey Norris finds her brother Jack in a room at the Briar Creek Library. The next time Lindsey enters the room, Jack has been replaced with a dead man. That evening Lindsey watched in horror a sNack is kidnaped by a beautiful woman. What trouble has Jack managed to get into? Lindsey and Sully are followed one evening the same night her apartment was vandalized before answers are found.

 Another exciting adventure in this series. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SERIES.

BOOK #

PUBULISHER KENSINGTON BOOKS

DATE OF PULICATION NOVEMBER 23, 2018

NETGALLEY SAYS 

“Gemma and Jayne donate their time to raise money for the rebuilding of a burned out museum—but a killer wants a piece of the auction.

Walking her dog Violet late one night, Gemma Doyle, owner of the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop, acts quickly when she smells smoke outside the West London Museum. Fortunately no one is inside, but it’s too late to save the museum’s priceless collection of furniture, and damage to the historic house is extensive. Baker Street’s shop owners come together to hold an afternoon auction tea to raise funds to rebuild, and Great Uncle Arthur Doyle offers a signed first edition ofThe Valley of Fear.”

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!

BLUE has always been a favorite color.  I find it relaxing color especially for !y eyes. Shown here are some of my Blue photos from my photos.


Here I am making notes on the Penstemon plant in Arizona


This picture shows me and our last German Short hair at the Nature Conservatory Thousand Springs. The barn in the background was built in the 1920’s and had electricity. This location is an outlet for the Snake River Aquifer which cover most of central Idaho. The water originates from Yellowstone Park.






One of the reasons that attracted me was all the blue flowers. The above are 5 species of penstemon with blue flowers.


This picture is looking down at the Snake River on the Oregon side of Hell’s Canyon. Of course the flower is another species of penstemon.


The Snake River as it heads into Hall’s Canyon. We are on a boat in the middle of the river looking at the Idaho side.


We are now in Northern California scanning the Pacific Ocean.

#ACADEMIC CURVEBALL By James J. Cudney

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!


In the first book of the Braxton campus mysteries, we are introduced to the Ayrwick family and friends. Many of these friends are employees of the college and a couple is old college friends. The plot is very creative and different from any I have read. At first, I had a problem until I. had characters fixed in my mind when I found it hard to put down.

Kellan returns to tiny isolated Pennsylvania’s village where he grew up for the retirement party for his Father, the President of the Braxton College. He works in Reality TV and hopes to soon have his own show. He is the father of a six-year-old girl. Kellan finds there are problems grade changing, challenges that appear to be financially implicating his Father. At the party, he finds the body of a dislike professor. Many of Kellan friends could be responsible for the murder. After a second murder, Kellan begins to understand part of the problem. There a numerous of turns as the story nears the end, which has a major cliffhanger. I highly recommend this book.

Disclosure: I received a free copy from the author for a review.The opinions expressed are my own.

SUNDAY SKILLS-TEXURE IS AROUND US

THINK POSITIVE! HUGS!

https://secondwindleisure.com/2018/10/14/sunday-stills-texture-is-all-around-us/

There are some files showing the different textures.


Kato is claiming the Granny Afghan I crochet for my Mother in 1950. I still have it but it needs some work as it losing the crochet stitches.

Kato is fascinated with our printer at the time. I finally had to tell him as kept looking for what move the paper.


Various pictures of myself showing the different textures.


I am looking at Penstemon albimargintus. This gem is above ground for only 3 months. There only a few areas where it can be found. I hope it still exists.


I wanted a picture of Kato with a birthday gift but he didn’t like it.


From the garden zinna and begonias adding color in front of the hospital.


The east side of St. Helens after she lost her top. The flower is a Penstemon and I felt it was hybrid.


Textures are found in the Ocean. This is the Pacific ocean off the coast of Oregon.


We went several times to Mexico from Yuma.


From the my birding file an osprey.
