Dancing with Dementia by Jemi Fraser, A Book Review by Pat Garcia

Good Morning Everyone,

Dancing with Dementia is one of those books where you start out laughing astounded over the humor describing the incidents, and you end up with a sadden but an enlightened heart on the last page.

 

Dancing with Dementia, a book by Jemi Fraser, gives us a wide-angle view of dementia taking root in a family.

 

The medical perspective of dementia is not an issue here. You will not find a medical dissertation that gives a neurological discourse on the brain and how it functions. Instead, you will meet Lizzie and Philip, who have reached their senior years but are still madly in love. For Lizzie, it is her second happy marriage.

 

Reading about their exploits had me reminiscing over incidents my siblings went through with our mother. I laughed as Lizzie and Philip managed to figure out a way to avoid dealing with their dwindling memory and their loss of movement.

 

However, even though it was humorous, it was sad to see two people slowly slipping away from the reality they had known and, in many cases, were not aware of it.

 

Watching parents with dementia mature into the Golden Years is not the supreme joy unless you learn to waltz with it. That is what the author is saying. You must learn how to dance around the complex and complicated situations you will face. Dementia becomes a never-ending challenge as you learn to fight against that silent thief that robs the dignity and memory of those you love.

 

Therefore, It’s a pleasure to be participating in author Jemi Fraser’s DANCING WITH DEMENTIA, Recognizing and Coping with the Early Stages of Dementia Blog Tour through MC Book Tours today.

 

The author is offering a tour-wide international giveaway of an Amazon Gift Card. More information on the giveaway is listed below.

NOT GUILTY, by C. Lee McKenzie, A Book Review by Pat Garcia

Not Guilty introduces you to Devon Carlyle and the unexpected events that change his destiny and his way of thinking forever.  Carlyle’s mind is on winning the state championship and maybe becoming the best basketball player ever at his school in his upcoming senior year.  His expectations have a sequential order of importance; a basketball scholarship, his best friend, and his new girlfriend, whom he loves dearly.

 

Leaving the stage of adolescent and moving swiftly toward early adulthood presents challenges and confrontations that test his belief system. Devon Carlyle is shocked at the injustice of justice as everything that he believes turns upside down. His hope of drawing the attention of the basketball scouts dwindle.  His cherry-filled life, where abundance overflows, becomes a nightmare.

 

He soon discovers that friends in good times are not friends in bad times. That the stardom of being the most talented basketball player brings out hidden jealousies from others and that the loyalty that he expects from his girlfriend cannot stand the pressure of an erroneous mistake that affects his entire family.

 

How do you handle the sharp arrows of mistrust, indiscretion, and doubt?

Has Devon Carlyle been condemned for the rest of his life?

 

The author keeps the tension high.  She has woven an eloquent tale of a young man rising from the blindness of a rose-colored, happy go lucky society to a young man who finds meaningfulness and three new best friends in an unlikely place.

 

Not Guilty, a book you will not regret reading.

 

Shalom aleichem,

Tasting The Apple, by Sherilyn Decter, (A Book Review by Pat Garcia)

 

Tasting The Apple is the continuation of the Bootleggers Chronicles. The first important thing that struck me was how Sherilyn Decter connected the beginning of the Chronicle in Book 2 to Book 1, Innocence Lost. Often in a series, a reader has to buy the first book to understand what is going on in the second book. In the case of Ms. Decter’s series, this is not so. She weaves in the first four or five chapters of the Tasting The Apple, a kind of summary into the narrative.  The reader, therefore, gets a great picture of what has already happened.

 

In Tasting The Apple, you will again meet Maggie and Frank, and other recurring characters like Mickey Duffey but you will also encounter some new characters like Tony Giordano.

 

It is the year 1926, eight years into the height of Prohibition. Some people would say it is one of the crowning years for bootlegging before Franklin Roosevelt was elected as President seven years later and the Prohibition Laws crippling the United States in bondage to alcohol was repealed by the twenty-first amendment.

 

 

 

 

 

Decter interweave this historical period through the lives of her characters.  We see Maggie still struggling to make ends meet.  Decter also paints a beautiful picture of friendship between Maggie and the wife of one of the arch antagonists that she’s helping to trap and put behind bars.

Finally, you will meet again, Inspector Frank Geyer. Maggie’s special friend and partner.

To say, that the story will draw you in is an understatement. It is well-crafted historical documentation written within a fictitious tale, that I believe you will enjoy.

Congratulations, Ms. Decter, I am truly enjoying your series.

Tasting The Apple can be purchased at Amazon.com and also amazon.de for those of us living in Germany.

 

Shalom aleichem,

INNOCENCE LOST by Sherilyn Decter- A Book Review by Pat Garcia

 

With the ratification of the eighteenth amendment on January 19, 1919, one of the bloodiest, if not the bloodiest period of the United States of America history began.

 

Innocence Lost by Sherilyn Decter, documents the detrimental effects that this period played in the lives of a young widow, her son, her son’s friends and the people living as borders in her house.

 

Sherilyn Decter has done an excellent job of painting a picture of what most people only know as the Roaring Twenties. She incorporates it into a real story where illegally transporting alcohol into various states become the backdrop for murdering those who did not keep their mouths shut.

 

Her characters are believable, engaging, and it is her characters that force you to turn to the next page and keep reading because you want to know more.  Decter hammers into the head of her readers what the streets of Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love, must have been like as she shows the traumatic experiences of a young widow, Margaret, and her son. A widow who rises up against her own mother’s norms and standards and finds steps out to find her own way of living. I truly enjoyed her characters especially, Inspector Geyer, i.e., Frank.  Outside of watching Maggie’s internal growth, he was my favorite character.

 

Innocence Lost depicts the bootlegging scene that swept the United States; that gave many poor immigrants pouring into the States a job although illegal and put food on their families’ tables.

 

It presents historical facts with a fictional story interwoven within it.

Well-crafted and very well written, I highly recommend investing your time in reading this book.

Innocence Lost by Sherilyn Decter is available  on all Amazon Online Stores.

Once, Tales, Myths, and Legends of Faerie by Ronel Janse van Vuuren – A Book Review by Pat Garcia

 

Once, Tales, Myths, and Legends of Faerie written by author Ronel Janse van Vuuren is a beautiful collection of short stories about Faerie Land. Van Vuureninvites you to enter the world of make-believe, where things are not as they seem; where animals and nature are portrayed to show us that life changes, and new beginnings begin.

 

Sixteen different stories of tales, myths, and legends, with a motive behind them and a lesson to be learned. I was so impressed by the author’s selections that she included in her book that I invested and bought a copy, although I had an ARC copy to review.

 

Van Vuuren has an effortless style that captures a reader. In my opinion, she presents lessons that one should learn. These are stories that apply to life. They encourage those of us who have made decisions, which have thrown us forcefully into forgetting the past and moving on to something new as in The Fae of Bremen or the initial story, Queen of Ice, or Rumour Has It.

 

Congratulations, Ms. Ronel Janse van Vuuren, on your book, Once, Tales, Myths, and Legends of Faerie.  The book is well-written and well-crafted and well-worth reading.

 

Shalom aleichem,

JUSTICE By Georgia Tingley, A Book Review By Pat Garcia

 

Justice, a book by author Georgia Tingley, deals with a painful loss and the search for atonement.

Where is Christine Conroy?

A small country village in Oregon had asked themselves that question for years and had not come up with the answers.

The book, Justice, deals with Conroy’s disappearance and reveals unexpected information about other people no one suspected.

Tingley opens with a prologue that catapulted me into her story. She got my attention immediately.

After reading her book, I came to the conclusion that she has written a homage to lost souls who have disappeared and have not been found.  They are the missing persons. They remain unforgotten and become unsolved cases. Their parents go to their graves hoping they will return.  The sudden vanishing of their child, without goodbyes, binds the pain and keep the memories alive in their hearts.

Tingley’s main character is named Justice. There is a twist in this story, and I had to smile. The author has done an outstanding job handling the spirits of darkness that continually fight against the spirits of light and goodness. In very few words, she gives us a picture of evil. Her descriptions are succinct, not overly flowery. Direct hits that will touch the heart of anyone reading. It will keep you turning the pages. Each page I turned made me want to continue reading.

If you have read any of the ancient books about witches, demons, and the devil against goodness, this story will appeal to you. Alone the character, Justice, reminds you that the length of years does not erase the fact that a crime has been committed and must be atoned.

 

It is a well-written story that engages your mind, and I am glad I took the time to read it. Ms. Tingley’s Bio is below and you can purchase the book in all Amazon Online Stores. I bought my copy on Amazon Germany.

Excellent job, Ms. Tingley.

All the best for your future works.

 

Shalom aleichem,

I am a newbie on the author scene, only self-publishing my first novel in early 2018. It’s all a bit scary and challenging at the same time. After accepting a voluntary redundancy from my administration job, I decided to take on the thrill of writing and I haven’t looked back.  I love writing and creating stories so much that it’s become my drug of choice and I’m an addict needing my fix.

 

I have had the privilege of living in a number of countries growing up – India, England, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. I hold citizenship to only three of the above, but I call Australia home – it’s where my heart is.

Currently, I live in Perth in Western Australia, only a short walk from some of the best beaches in Australia. I should know since I took three months off work and travelled around this great country in 2009.

 

Married twice with two gorgeous girls, two gorgeous step-kids and three delightful grandchildren and one on the way – life can be hectic. Entertaining involves two dining tables and numerous high chairs.

At the moment it’s just my husband and me at home. Plus, a cat called ‘pixel’ who was tiny as a kitten, hence the name, but is now a heffalump.

 

I am especially lucky to have met and married the most romantic man. He took me on a surprise vacation to an island resort in the Maldives where he proposed on a tropical beach!

In my downtime, I love to read, read and read. Watch TV shows and movies, do crafts and get into the garden as it’s so therapeutic. My husband and I enjoy caravanning and are planning a big trip to the ‘Red Centre’.

 

I love to hear from my readers.

Queen Moxie by Hank Quense – A Book Review

If you have read the stories of Camelot; if you know whom King Arthur is and have heard of the knights and sitting at the round table; if you have ever read the Sunday Funnies and went to read Prince Valiant first before you read any other funny;  if the folklore stories about the Normans, Saxons, and Vikings excite you; then, you are going to love Queen Moxie by Hank Quense.

 

Quense says at the bottom of his book that it is a Strange Worlds Story. However, I say it is a story that depicts the beginning of civilization among the Irish, English, Scots, and the northern countries of Norway and Sweden. It is a beautiful tale.

 

A queen who is pulled between defending her country and loving her daughter who has already decided that reigning may not be her cup of tea.

 

Quense’s humor also prevails, whether it is in his previous books, or in this one.  He has a way of capturing your attention, and without your knowing it, you are engaged in a world that used to be.

 

The character that fascinated me the most was Tristan.  I had to laugh, although it may have been inappropriate, as Aethelwine changed her mind about her plan to wed Tristan. Quense did an excellent job of weaving him in and out of Queen Moxie.

 

Queen Moxie, a tale that resurrects the knighthood, honor, and loyalty to a Queen and brings back to life Merlin and his magic. It is a book that you do not want to miss reading.

 

 

Shalom aleichem,

The Princelings of the North by Jemima Pett, A Book Review

A fantasy with suspense and ethics written within it, the Princelings of the North by Jemima Pett reminded me of C.S. Lewis and his books, The Chronicles of Narnia.  This is the eighth book in Pett’s, The Princelings of the East adventure mystery series for good readers 9-14 yrs.

I have to admit this was the first book I have read in the series, but I am seriously contemplating on going back and starting at Book One to read the whole series.

The Princelings of the North is for everyone who loves to read fantasy regardless of whether you are a child or an adult.

Kevin, the main character, is confronted with challenges that he has to overcome if he wants to live and receive his inheritance. Having jumped at an offer by his Uncle to take a small trip, Kevin threw himself into a precarious situation. In fact, his trust in his Uncle before the trip had me ready to jump into the story and tell him to open his eyes and to look at his Uncle for who he was, but I did not do that. Instead, I kept reading the book, which was hard for me to put down. As I read further, I found out that Kevin was not as dumb as I thought he was.

One of the most intriguing situations in the book is a bottled post. Like any bottled post, it stimulated two young boys to go on a daring  search, and they become helpers. Throughout the book, the tension built as the Kevin, Dylan, and Dougall continued on their adventure.

I loved Pett’s choice of names for the castles.  Names like Deeping, Forrest, and Haunn were symbolic and played with my imagination.

It was also engaging to see how Pett wove the subplot of Dylan and Dougall into the story.

The Princelings of the North by Jemima Pett is a delightful book and one that I highly recommend.

Shalom aleichem,

Maski: Broken But Not Dead, by Joylene Nowell Butler

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first thing that caught my attention as I read Maski: Broken But Not Dead, by Joylene Nowell Butler was the name of the heroine, Brendell Meshango. Just seeing a name that is so entirely different from the typical White Anglo-Saxon Protestant culture awoke my curiosity to know more about her main character.

 

Meshango, a woman, a half-breed, a person from a minority culture who breaks out of the jail cell she has locked herself in for years. On her road to discovery, a bizarre occurrence takes place that forces her to face herself.

 

 

Joylene Nowell Butler does an excellent job developing and presenting Meshango’s fears, her confusion, her sense of loss and her willingness to protect the only person she has ever loved.

 

In many ways, in my opinion, Brendell Meshango represents women who belong to any minority. Women, who bury their personalities, hide their beliefs and conform to a society that demands that they change and emulate the Caucasian woman.

 

Maski: Broken But Not Dead is an extraordinary novel that riles the reader.  In fact, I got downright angry.  Meshango’s life story brought forth my wrath, and I was ready to fight for her and my existence.  But, and I say that with a big BUT, Butler captured and held my attention until the very last page.  I did not close the book or put it aside. I wanted to see how she resolved the conflict, and I was not disappointed.

 

I congratulate you Ms. Butler on writing an outstanding novel that riled, inspired, and encouraged me.

Award-winning author Joylene Nowell Butler is showcasing not one, but two of her intriguing books in two different formats and you could win a copy of one of them.

To the Breaking Point…

When Brendell Meshango resigns from her university professor position and retreats to her isolated cabin to repair her psyche, she is confronted by a masked intruder. His racial comments lead her to believe she is the solitary victim of a hate crime.

         However, is all as it appears? After two bizarre days, the intruder mysteriously disappears but continues to play mind games with her. Taught by her mother to distrust the mainstream-based power structures, and with her stalker possibly linked to a high level of government, Brendell conceals the incident from the police. But will her silence keep her safe?

         Then her beloved daughter, Zoë, is threatened and Brendell takes matters into her own hands. To save Zoë, Brendell searches for the stalker and confronts not just a depraved madman but her own fears and prejudices.
