The Witches by: Roald Dahl

"The Witches" by: Roald Dahl
Amazon says: "This is not a fairy tale. This is about real witches.
Grandmamma loves to tell about witches. Real witches are the most dangerous of all living creatures on earth. There's nothing they hate so much as children, and they work all kinds of terrifying spells to get rid of them. Her grandson listens closely to Grandmamma's stories—but nothing can prepare him for the day he comes face-to-face with The Grand High Witch herself!..."
My Thoughts: I remember reading this book as a kid. It was one book my mom had to be very iffy about because lots of parents didn't like that it was about witches. Now I didn't go to a religious school or anything but some parents get their panties up in a bunch over the silliest things.

Make Me Howl by: Susan Shay

"Make Me Howl" by: Susan Shay
"Amazon" says: "When Chase Holliday's gaze first met mine, something tingled on my end. He was hot. Dark blue eyes, a square jaw, hair that was just a little too long, and he had this way of focusing that made me wonder if I should attack or run.
And I never run."
My Thoughts: Here is a post about my friends these amazing 2 authors: "Susan Shay" & "Susan M. Boyer" please check it out to see how my story with them all got started. I am waiting on Susan M. Boyer's new book "Lowcountry Bordello (A Liz Talbot Mystery Book 4)" is coming out this November 3rd, 2015. Super excited about that. I knew I wanted to read this book by Susan Shay, it was on the "to read list" & I just decided it was time. I had some free extra reading time why not. I have not read a book about werewolves in a while. (Let's see maybe Harry Potter or the Twilight series? We need more werewolf book p…

My Sister's Grave by: Robert Dugoni

"My Sister's Grave" by: Robert Dugoni
"Amazon" says: "Tracy Crosswhite has spent twenty years questioning the facts surrounding her sister Sarah’s disappearance and the murder trial that followed. She doesn’t believe that Edmund House—a convicted rapist and the man condemned for Sarah’s murder—is the guilty party. Motivated by the opportunity to obtain real justice, Tracy became a homicide detective with the Seattle PD and dedicated her life to tracking down killers. When Sarah’s remains are finally discovered near their hometown in the northern Cascade mountains of Washington State, Tracy is determined to get the answers she’s been seeking. As she searches for the real killer, she unearths dark, long-kept secrets that will forever change her relationship to her past—and open the door to deadly danger."

"Amazon" says: "Attempting to rebuild her life after the tragic death of her beloved husband, middle-aged widow Melissa Maples moved back to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Part of her starting over meant opening her own bakery – Kill Devil Delicacies - that specialized in artisan breads.
