Six Women of Salem: The Untold Story of the Accused and Their Accusers in the Salem Witch Trials

Six Women of Salem: The Untold Story of the Accused and Their Accusers in the Salem Witch Trials - Marilynne K. Roach Review in progress:Initial thoughts:+Deeply researched and well written.+ A large of information learned. +loved the narrative in the beginning.
Raven's Fire - John Gubbins Full review in progress.+ Premise of story better than actual story.+ Jumped around WAY too much from POV to periods of time.
Winter Chill - Joanne Fluke Blog review in progress+too light of a mystery. +Prefer her other series. Was more fun thus more engaging.
Homemade Liqueurs and Infused Spirits: Make Your Own Limoncello, Grand Marnier, Bailey's, and 152 Other Innovative Flavor Combinations - Andrew Schloss Full review in progress...on list to purchasea must for any mixologist. great explanations and instructions.
The Wildlife-Friendly Vegetable Gardener: A Mindful Approach to Growing Food in Harmony with Nature - Tammi Hartung Blog review in progress.+ More targeted towards the newbie organic gardener.+ I already had the majority of the information through research. +Very short and concise. Adorable drawings, but due to the importance would rather have seen photographs.
Covet - Tracey Garvis Graves Blog review in progress. Initial thoughts:+LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this story.+very apropros for today's society and economic times. Def. could see the reality of daily life behind this book.
Jordan's Stormy Banks: A Body Farm Novella - Jefferson Bass Blog review in progress.
The Mourning Hours - Paula Treick DeBoard Review in progress
A Tap on the Window - Linwood Barclay +My least favorite of his stand alones.+Took me forever to get through it.+Really couldn't "attach" to the characters like in his other books.

Wedding Belles

Wedding Belles - Beth Albright 3.5/5 stars+ A bit more "chick-lit" ish than the first in the series.+ Still a fun, very light read. I was looking for something with a bit more mystery like the first.+Need to read the first in series first due to the character development.
Jefferson and Hamilton: The Rivalry That Forged a Nation - John Ferling Blog review in progress+Excellent, well researched read+well detailed and slower read
Cooley Rose - Terry Perrel Blog review in progress.+Very good debut. Interesting and unusual storyline with characters that were pretty complex.+Areas where the writing/storyline appeared to be repetitive.
Youtility: Why Smart Companies Are Helping, Not Selling - Jay Baer Probably one of the top marketing books I have read in a long time. Baer breaks down the changing face of marketing which companies must adhere to or get left behind in the evolution of more involved customer bases and presence of social media. Examples are well laid out and measurement tactics are well defined. With the buzz surrounding this book, I wanted to make sure it wasn't fluff. It isn't. This is a book that I will be purchasing.
Let Me Go - Chelsea Cain Blog review in progress.
Let it Burn - Steve Hamilton Review in progress
A Child Across the Sky - Jonathan Carroll I didn't think this book lived up to what I expected from it. Although it was creepy at times, it was really slow at others.
