The Bridge (Para-Earth Series)…my review

I read a book last month, entitled “The Bridge (Para-Earth Series)” by Allan Krummenacker. I gave the book a five-star review. This book is fantastic with unexpected twists, humorous dialogue between the characters, and touching moments. I laughed, I gasped, and I cried. This book should be made into a science-fiction movie. I would recommend this book to one and all.

SYNOPSIS:Alex Hill buried his psychic talents for eighteen years. But with the scream of tires and twisting metal all this changes.

His girlfriend, Police Sergeant Veronica Ross, is nearly run down by two teenagers leaving her depressed and troubled. After calming her down they get a call from the Coroner’s office and learn that both the driver and passenger of the wrecked car had already been dead for almost twelve hours before the accident. Furthermore, they hadn’t been killed in any vehicle accident, the pair had been drowned.

Upon hearing this Alex feels his powers stirring again and goes with Veronica to see the coroner to learn more. But, as soon as they reach the doors of the Morgue he is psychically assaulted by an unknown force.

Taking the attack as a warning, he tries to resist getting involved further. But, his talents soon lead him directly to the place where the teenagers died. It is the stream underneath an old stone bridge that is supposedly haunted by the White Lady.

But the real problem for Alex is the fact that both the bridge and stream are on the Graham Estate. The very property he is now representing as a real estate agent.

Soon the body count begins to rise, and each new death is somehow attached to the stream. And as the only person with full access to the estate, suspicion starts to fall on Alex. Especially when it’s discovered he does not have a solid alibi for any of the incidents.

Now, in order to clear his name and learn what force is behind all the killings, Alex must decide whether or not to embrace the very abilities he shunned.


Book Review: Salvation Jane by Ann Massey

I read a book over the past week and wrote a review. So, I thought, why not share my review with my world? Here it is:

What a wonderful story with well-developed characters. Not only is this a political story, but it is the backdrop for an engaging, suspense story with a bit of romance.

A young woman, on the heels of a relationship breakup, inherits a hostel from a long-lost uncle. Jane Patterson is naive and idealistic. She wants the ‘good life’ and envisions operating a top-notch hostel for backpacking tourists. However, fantasy and reality coming crashing together. The hostel she inherits is filled with homeless men and vagrants. The city of Perth (Australia) wants to get rid of the homeless.

What is a young, naive woman to do? What only a young, naive woman CAN do! That is: to learn the hard way. Jane becomes compassionate toward the homeless as she learns their plights. She believes that running for elected office will help change the perception of the citizens and politicians. Jane has to deal with an ambitious politician, whose help she needs to keep her hostel operational. And, that is where the trouble begins.

Jane’s pleasing personality leads her to mistakenly trust her fellow politicians. Her only recourse is to seek advice and emotional support from the one group she held with initial contempt – the homeless and the disenfranchised.

This plucky young woman gets her heart stomped on, her personal image is mocked, and her skill sets as a newly elected politician are questioned. However, with determination and grit, Jane Patterson prevails.

Irish Girls…that’s me.

It’s a little early for St. Patrick’s Day. But, this was shared with me by one of my friends who shared the same Irish maiden name as I did. “Irish girls are unique in their character… they’re a combination of a girl, mother, hooker, and Nun. They go from Bambi to Banshee in 3.7 seconds. They can bat their eyes or blacken yours. They can love you with a passion and make you feel like a king. Depending on their mood, they’ll chastise you for drinking or match you pint for pint. They keep Irish men from killing themselves and each other. Incomprehensible but indispensable, those Irish girls.”
