April Monthly News

Welcome to the April 2023 edition of monthly news! A pretty uneventful month, mostly. I didn't even read much. I had some time but was a little slumpy I guess... it's not a feeling I am familiar with. Easter came, and we went to one of my sisters' to have a meal. Myself, my sister and my cousin Always good to have some family time. Got a couple more tattoos... First my dog's paw prints... since they are older and our time is limited. Ironically, the day I got it, my Shih Tzu turned 13! It says numerous but that's a spellcheck problem... lol... I meant numero. Then right after getting this one, I got some tribal jewelry on my fingers. That hurt like a bitch, but I love it. And now want to fill the space left on my hand. It looks like I'm not tattooed from the wrist up, but I am.... 😁 My husband had a birthday.  We went to the place where we get married, The Ancaster Old Mill Restaurant.

If I'm Found - Terri Blackstock (18)

ASIN: ‎  B01HAKH212 Publisher: ‎  Zondervan (March 21, 2017) Kindle: ‎  1522 KB Print: ‎  382 pages AMAZON Evil lurks . . . but light still shines through the darkness.  Casey Cox is still on the run, fleeing prosecution for a murder she didn’t commit. Dylan Roberts—her most relentless pursuer—is still on her trail, but his secret emails claim he knows the truth and wants to help her. He’s let her escape before, but trust doesn’t come easily.  As Casey works to collect evidence about the real murderers, she stumbles upon another unbearable injustice: an abused child and a suicidal man who’s also been falsely accused. Should Casey risk her own safety to right this wrong and protect the little girl from her tormentors? Doing so would be risky and may result in her capture—and if she’s captured, she has no doubt she’ll be murdered before she ever steps foot in a jail cell.  Terri Blackstock has sold over seven million books worldwide and is a  New York Times  bestselling author. She is th

Sometimes they're morbid, but all her characters have cool jobs. She and her husband, Johnathon Olavarria co-host Forced Proximity podcast, a weekly romance book and movie club.
