I love Readers and Writers

I love those who love reading and I totally love those who write books. I am warming up to E-books but I still love to hold the hard copy of a good book as I cozy in for those chilly winter days and grab some writing or reading time. So without rambling on and on or sounding to lame just let me say this:

I am grateful for books, authors, and those who read this blog. I may never be famous or widely published but I join millions of others who cherish the written word and delve into made up towns with made up characters to find a special place. I am friends with famous authors, not so famous ones, and everyone in between whose dream it is to write something others want to read. So this Thanksgiving along with being thankful for health, shelter, and good food on our table I am truly thankful for all of those I have met who love writing and reading. May we all be seen on the page in a good way, and may we all continue to encourage and teach each other along our journey.

Happy Thanksgiving, Happy writing my friends.

My Review:

Kudos to Dennis Marcoux for giving children an exciting story with fun animal characters who keep young readers engaged and interested. In an age where children have technology and hand held devices at their finger tips it is refreshing to see and read a great picture book that will get children interested in reading. And what little kiddo hasn't thought about either losing a sibling or being the sibling that gets lost.

Readers and adults reading the story aloud will enjoy the antics of Nutty and Twittles.The cute illustrations go so well and enhance the fun of the story. Where will little sister be found? Come join the fun and find out how Nutty and Twittles get into such a pickle.

Silent Night Standoff- First Responders Series by Susan Sleeman

Silent Night Standoff

Author: Susan Sleeman

ISBN: 978-0-373-44633-9

Loved Inspired Suspense

First Responders Series

From the Back Cover: Hostage Situation: When armed robbers strike her band, hostage negotiator Skyler Brennan's life is on the line. Rescue comes from the last person she thought she could count on--ex-boyfriend who chose his job over their relationship. FBI agent Logan Hunter knows how much is resting on this case..........

My Review: As a writer I read for both enjoyment but also for the lessons I can learn from good authors.  I love stories where the reader is engaged from the very first page and the author is successful at character development, plot, and creating a story that I can feel apart of. Susan Sleeman has created such a book. With a Christian influence and a wholesome yet complex story line, this first book in the series proves to be both meaty and entertaining.

Ms Sleeman has developed characters like Skyler Brennan that make a reader want to jump into the page and be her friend getting to know her even more. The story keeps the perfect amount of tension going so the reader is kept turning the page to see what happens next. As a writer I appreciate how well this story is crafted and as a reader I was entertained and anticipate the next book in The First Responder Series... it can't come soon enough.

Look for other stories by Susan Sleeman including her story in Holiday Defenders, another Love Inspired Suspense book including stories by author Debby Giusti and Jodie Bailey.
