Book Review-The Long Way Home-Karen McQuestion

Friday, June 2, 2023

These four woman did not know each other--they met in a grief group. Each had her own sorry story. Jazzy happened into that group one evening and started the ball rolling. Jazzy was a really upbeat woman who could read people. With her encouragement they all headed out on a road trip from Wisconsin to Las Vegas.

All their lives end up changed and for the better I might add--You will laugh with them on occasion--hey older woman need bathroom stops! You will feel tears forming at some of what they are trying to fix-each one different then the other--you will cheer them on.

These characters will feel as real to you as if they were your best friends.

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Four women bound by chance take the trip of a lifetime in this heartwarming novel by bestselling author Karen McQuestion.

For Wisconsinites Marnie, Laverne, and Rita, life isn't working out so well. Each is biding time, waiting for something better, something to transport them out of what their lives have recently become. And then there’s Jazzy: bubbly, positive, and happy even though she hears voices of the departed. Brought together by a chance meeting, the women decide to join Marnie on a road trip from Wisconsin to Las Vegas where she intends to reunite with Troy, the boy she raised as her own—and who she’s been separated from since her boyfriend’s death. Little do they know that as the road trip unfolds, so will their lives—in directions they never anticipated. Humorous, heartwarming, and bittersweet, the journey has something special in store for each woman.

$25 Amazon/PP-1-WW-Murder in Santa Fe-Dianne Harman Ends 6/15

Thursday, June 1, 2023

Some woman will do anything to get the guy they want-----As if the art world isn't filed with back stabbers. She would even give up her client list. She threw a party just so she could attampt to get him to really see her and realize that they were meant to be together--It was a small gathering of artist and collectors of art.

Dani agreed to cater the party and all went amazingly well----Until-----

Dani's little fashionista niece gets Arthur-Dani's Sou Chef--to buy her a pair of really expensive shoes at the Native American Art Show--well they were really a work of art!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

When Dani Rosetti, a world-famous celebrity chef, was hired to cater a gourmet dinner party in Santa Fe, New Mexico, it sounded heavenly. The guests scheduled to attend were some of the wealthiest Native American art collectors in the United States, and the dinner was to be held on the eve of the legendary Indian Market which takes place each year in August.

In addition to the art collectors who would be attending the dinner, two art dealers and a beloved Native American artist were also on the invite list. But the threat of murder is never heavenly!

Dani's sous-chef, Arthur, who is also the owner of an international private investigation firm, reviewed the list of invitees for the dinner and became very concerned. His research led him to believe that several guests might have a reason why they'd like to see one of the art dealers dead, and the others might as well.

It seems the art dealer from New York, Julian Schimmer, is alleged to have sold fake Indian art pieces to several of the guests invited to the dinner. But what Arthur can't figure out is why Annabelle Rosen, the hostess, and probably the most successful gallery owner in Santa Fe, would invite Julian to the dinner?


was hosting the dinner for her wealthy clients, some of whom had bought fakes from Julian, which she well knew. Was Annabelle using the occasion as a carrot for romance with him? Julian would have a unique opportunity to meet her clients, and maybe, just maybe, he'd be so indebted to her that there would be a chance for romance. After all, the New York art dealer was a very, very attractive man.

And so the age-old motives of greed and romance rear their ugly heads on the night before Indian Market, a night none of the guests will ever forget, nor will Dani!
