Bearing it all is a wonderful book. I love the humor that is interspersed throughout the book. I love Effie with the pink hair. Magnus aka Brother Bear is a great character and is portrayed well. Imagine meeting the girl of your dreams and both of you are too shy to do anything but friendship, then suddenly you shift into Brother Bear to running through the forest and your other half falls on you from the sky. She is labeled a terrorist and is trying to clear her name. Remember Effie well she is a witch and has actually sent Anisa to you since she knows that you are soul mates. Well Ronan welcome to your new world order. All of these are true. Your brothers and mother as well as your nieces and nephew are great as well. Great story and the humor is well interspersed.

This book begins very slowly. As it progressed it did get better. It is rare that the killer gets away but it happens. This put a different spin on the story. The police detective who hounded Henry soon begins to respect him. I did not have much sympathy for Betty because she knew she was dating a married man and yet she continued the affair for years. Not a true thriller but an interesting story.

This was a nice paced romance that involved several layers. I like the way the author treated the child abuse issue. There were several twist that kept the story moving forward. Mia and Raleigh’s romance was put on hold due to the car crash and then reignited after Mia’s grandmother’s death. The story ended on a good note that helps the reader understand that life does take twists and turns but it is always worth taking a chance on.

Blind Spot by Tom Kakonis was an intense novel that kept the pages turning. The father started out as mild and nondescript until his son was stolen from him. He made a promise to his wife that he would bring the boy back home. He suffered beatings, sleepless nights, terrors of the unknown while visiting places he had only heard about in his desperate search for his son. In the end he and his son were saved by the man who thought he was adopting a son so that his wife would be happy. He died saving both of them. Well written story.
