Passing through Perfect: The Wyattsville Series, Book 3


The first thing she noticed was that the wicker rocking chair her mama sat in was gone from the front porch. Although it had been just six years, it seemed a lifetime ago. Everything felt strange; different in a way she couldn't put a finger to. She rapped on the door and waited.

  1. I've read other books by this author and adored them, so I'm sure I'd enjoy this one too. Bette Lee Crosby writes in a down-to-earth style, and her characters are believable -- like someone you might know.

  6. This one sounds interesting and it's a new to me author. I like the excerpt. I wonder why it's been so long and what has happened to her in the meantime?

  10. That bit made me think of my own life. After my Mom was gone, when I go to places we had gone together, I'll always noticed what has changed since she was alive.

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?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
