Review Long Time Gone by J.A. Jance


Title: Long Time Gone
Author: J.A. Jance
Pages: 448
Publisher: Avon
Series: J.P. Beaumont



Description:

 Two family tragedies 50 years apart challenge J.P. Beaumont, Seattle investigator for the Washington Special Homicide Investigation Team, in bestseller Jance's taut, colorful 17th entry in a series that started 20 years ago with Until Proven Guilty. The state attorney general assigns Beaumont a cold case after a nun, Sister Mary Katherine, reports horrific dreams that indicate a long-repressed memory of witnessing a murder. But he's distracted when the former wife of his best friend, Ron Peters, is killed and suspicion falls on Ron's family, causing havoc. Jance is smart enough not to combine the two disparate cases in anything but locale, but she forces Beaumont to choose between friendship and duty—his relationship with the distraught Peters family forbids him from working their case, but he aches to help. The clever and complex plot line involving the nun shows Jance at her best, revealing a coverup that still threatens after many decades. The Peters plot is a frightening lesson in miscommunication, and though the reader may suspect the murderer early on, the stunning motive is only slowly revealed. While Jance writes without the humor of an Ed McBain or Robert B. Parker, fans of those authors will appreciate Beaumont.

My Thoughts:

This is a great book it really has you turning just when you think you have it solved there is another twist that you aren't expecting. The main character is J.P. Beaumont who has been around for a while. He has moved up from Seattle P.D. to a special team

known as S.H.I.T squad. He has been put on a very cold case which proves to have many twists and turns through out the book. Should be a great read for anyone who likes a good story with twists and turns and a major surprise ending. I definitely give this book 5 cups!

Review The Christmas Lamp by: Lori Copeland


Title: The Christmas Lamp
Author: Lori Copeland
Publisher: Kindle
Format: Kindle ebook
Source: Purchase

Description:

Christmas trees, twinkling lights, skating in the park, and holiday displays are the hallmark elements for celebrating Jesus' birth for the sentimental residents of Nativity, Missouri. Will fiscal responsibility replace Christmas their traditions when times are tough?Though their priorities and methods clash, Roni Elliot and Jake Brisco want the same thing---the town to prosper. As the two get to know each other better, each begins to gain a new perspective on what the real wealth of Nativity---and the season---might be.

My Thoughts:

Lori Copeland's story The Christmas Lamp isn't overly Christian oriented it talks about the main characters Roni and Jake want to fix the small town of Nativity which has suffered due to the economy. And how to get people to contribute without the flash of winning things, but to do it cause they want too. There is also a love story mixed into it that you would never see. I really liked this book. It's not overly long book, but a great read for this holiday season.

Witch and Wizard by James Patterson


The world is changing: the government has seized control of every aspect of society, and now, kids are disappearing. For 15-year-old Wisty and her older brother Whit, life turns upside down when they are torn from their parents one night and slammed into a secret prison for no reason they can comprehend. The New Order, as it is known, is clearly trying to suppress Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Being a Normal Teenager. But while trapped in this totalitarian nightmare, Wisty and Whit discover they have incredible powers they'd never dreamed of. Can this newly minted witch and wizard master their skills in time to save themselves, their parents--and maybe the world?

James Patterson's newest book is now out, it should prove to be interesting as this is not a normal talk he writes about. He usually writes mystery, suspense. I will be writing a review as soon as I finish my copy.
