Mother's day came and went. I hope you treated your mothers' well. ♕
I sent mine flowers because she lives so far from me. 
I did get to see her at the end of the month, but due to special circumstances. 
My uncle was admitted to hospital. He had cancer about a month ago, removed half of his tongue, and since then has had some complications. Currently he has a tumor on his liver and a tumor on his kidney. He also is diabetic. His platelets are super low too, and he now has to have a blood transfusion. Any prayers I can get are greatly appreciated.

The Murder Game by Julie Apple (11)

Kindle: 1753 KBPrint Length: 340 pagesPage Numbers Source ISBN: 1537316605ASIN: B01L9CZLQA
For fans of The Secret History and How to Get Away With Murder comes an exciting new voice in suspense fiction.

Ten years working as a prosecutor have left Meredith Delay jaded and unsure of what she wants out of life. She’s good at her job, but it haunts her. Her boyfriend wants her to commit, but she keeps him at arm’s length. Then Meredith is assigned to a high-profile prosecution involving the violent murder of a fallen hockey star. At first, it appears to be just another case to work. But when her old friend Julian is accused of the murder, it takes on a whole new dimension.

Meredith, Julian, Jonathan, and Lily were a tight-knit group in law school. But now, Jonathan’s defending Julian, and Lily’s loyalties aren’t clear. And when Julian invokes a rare—and risky—defense, Meredith is forced to confront their past.

Has something they played at as students finally been brought to death?

#Win Always My Baby by Martha Kennerson (US) With #Recipe

MARTHA KENNERSON is a bestselling and award-winning author who believes her current blessings are only matched by the struggle it took to achieve such happiness. She has enjoyed a successful career in executive management for more than 20 years and lives in Texas with her family.










Bon Appétit and a Book: A delicious recipe to enjoy alongside the book.
One of my favorite comfort foods that would go well with this book is shrimp and grits. Here’s an excellent recipe: ·Bring water to a boil. Add salt and pepper. Add grits and cook until water is absorbed, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter and cheese. ·Rinse shrimp and pat dry. Fry the bacon in a large skillet until browned; drain well. In grease, add shrimp. Cook until shrimp turn pink. Add lemon juice, chopped bacon, parsley, scallions and garlic. SautĂ© for 3 minutes. ·Spoon grits into a serving bowl. Add shrimp mixture and mix well. Serve immediately. *Recipe courtesy of Martha Nesbit

#Win Bashert: A Novel by Herb Freed (US) (With Q&A)

HERB FREED started his adult life as an ordained rabbi and became the spiritual leader of Temple Beth Shalom in Lake Mahopac, New York while producing and directing three shows at the Maidman Playhouse in New York City. Eventually, he resigned his pulpit to become a movie director. He has directed and produced 15 feature films most of which have had psychological, spiritual and/or social themes in spite of their commercial categories. He is best known for Graduation Day, a horror film, and Tomboy, a teenage romp, as well as the psychological drama Haunts, and CHILD2MAN, a story of survival during the Watts riots.






1. What is Bashert about and why did you write it? Studying to be a rabbi, I discovered the transcendent power of “the story”. My professor, Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel invited the great Catholic theologian Andrew Greely to speak to our class. He told us, “Religion is story, before it is anything else…and after it is everything else.” I served as a Rabbi for three years before…
