PAGE 56:

  1. Having read The Diary of Anne Frank I would probably enjoy this book, I'm looking forward to your review.

  2. Sounds like a good one since I read The Diary, too. Plus, with all that seems to be going on with Israel at the moment. Love the cover art as well.

  3. Great post Freda! I definitely want to pick this up.

    My Friday 56 was picked by Author Elizabeth Amber. Stop by tomorrow if you can to read her interview.

    Silvia rode sidesaddle in front of Bastian, snuggled within his strong embrace, her head resting on his shoulder. Her legs were both draped over one of his, and she felt his powerful thigh muscles work as he urged their horse onward through the night.

    “Hold on,” he rumbled. His coat was open, so she looped her arms around him inside it, hugging his solid strength. Turning her face into the hollow of his throat, she kissed him. His narrowed eyes flickered over her and his hand tightened on the reins. The horse bucked in reaction, almost throwing them. Cursing, he loosened his grip and rode on, his face grimly determined.

  4. I've been drooling over this one! Great choice....

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?
