How long is two hours? Do you think you could live and love in two hours? Probably not. After all, what can you do in two hours? You can watch four I Love Lucy reruns. Or you can read a few chapters in a book. You can drink several cups of coffee, and maybe even get rid of them, depending on your system. Maybe you can make yourself a meal or a snack that you don’t really want, and eat it anyway, and then still feel empty afterwards. After thinking about it, there’s really a good number of things you do in two hours. But there is one thing that I never before thought about doing in two hours: watching someone die.

Aransas Morning will sneak up on you when you least expect it, lasso your heart, and then tug at it throughout the story! Reader beware!
When the story opens, we are taken to Mustang Island, just south of Port Aransas, Texas, and we meet Sam. Unsure how likable he would be, I immediately pictured him as a not-so-young beach bum – a drifter. The author really doesn’t give us a lot to go on. There’s no action, no conflict, no drama.

With Missing Isaac, I find myself driving down a country road, with so much contrasting beauty and disaster around me that I want to slow down, open the windows, and just savor the ride!

Genre: Alternative Historical Fiction / Thriller
Leaving Annalise pretty much picked up where its predecessor, Saving Grace, left off. I happen to enjoy that in a series. But yet, this story can completely stand on its own. It is not necessary to read its predecessor to enjoy this story. But reading it is sort of like a bonus! Continue reading Leaving Annalise
