Amazon synopsis:
She’s lost her mother and her memory. And if she fails to escape… she’ll lose herself. Meiko Wright wants nothing to do with the mother who abandoned her nine years ago. Spending a year in Tokyo, where her mother lives, won’t change that fact. But when she takes a nasty fall in a Shinto temple, she wakes with no memory of her mother… or anything of her past life.

Broken Windows by Paul D. Marks October 30, 2018 Book Blast Synopsis:
While the storm rages over California’s notorious 1994 anti-illegal alien Proposition 187, a young woman climbs to the top of the famous Hollywood sign—and jumps to her death. An undocumented day laborer is murdered. And a disbarred and desperate lawyer in Venice Beach places an ad in a local paper that says: “Will Do Anything For Money.” Private Detective Duke Rogers, and his very unPC partner, Jack Riggs, must figure out what ties together these seemingly unrelated incidents. Their mission catapults them through a labyrinth of murder, intrigue and corruption of church, state and business that hovers around the immigration debate. Along the way we explore the fiery immigration issue from all sides and no one escapes unscathed.

Title: CRUEL CANDY (Book 1)
Author: Mildred Abbott
Publisher: Wings of Ink Publications LLC

BLURB: Estes Park, Colorado: picturesque mountains, charming shops, delightful bakeries, a cozy bookstore… and murder.

Winifred Page and her corgi, Watson, move to Estes Park to hit the Reset button on life. Fred is about to open her dream bookshop, and the only challenges she anticipates are adjusting to small-town life, tourists, and living close to her loveable mother, Phyllis, and hippy stepfather, Barry.

50 Ways to Love Wine More

Image
A wine book unlike any other, 50 Ways to Love Wine More is the most creative approach to knowing and enjoying wine to hit the shelves in a very long time. No one combines fun with serious, or education with enjoyment like author Jim Laughren. His love and appreciation for wine shines through on every page.






My Review


I am a wine drinker but I would classify my knowledge of wine as "casual". Meaning, I like to drink a glass or two of wine every once in a while but I don't have much knowledge of the wine. In this book, Mr. Laughren really dives deep into sharing his knowledge as well as providing the reader many elements of a really great bottle of wine.

For someone like me who has little knowledge, I found this book to be a wealth of knowledge as well as intriguing. It should be read as a study guide of sorts; instead of just powering through it from front cover to back cover.

There is so much to learn about wine from the grapes to the geographic locations, old world hist…
