Hello! My name is Linda. Let me tell you a little about myself. I live in a nice quiet suburb in New Jersey with my husband of 15 years, and our 4 toy poodles. I’ve been an avid reader for most of my life, although I did take a bit of a book break during my late teens, early twenties. I guess I was too busy having fun.

My love for books started at an early age, and I was happy to grab any book from the school library and read for hours. My books of choice were Dickens, Nancy Drew, Judy Bolton and the Hardy Boys. I also read many of the kids classics, such as Heidi, Black Beauty, The Secret Garden, and on and on. My taste in books naturally changed as I got a little older, but I still gravitated toward mysteries, and I happily discovered Agatha Christie. I was in Heaven!  Now, I read a bit of everything and anything. I follow many wonderful book bloggers, booktubers and book related podcasts, which expands my book reading (and buying), and has led to the ever-growing TBR pile.

So now here I am. I’ve decided to start a book blog just for fun. I hope that over time I can post some interesting and helpful reviews, meet other book lovers, and have some fun conversation!

Happy Reading!
Linda

  1. Linda,

    I’ve just started a new series, The Ideal Life Club, in a new genre called Ghost Mystery.
    The first book in the series is called Taking Leaps and Finding Ghosts. It has clues and
    red herrings just like a typical mystery, but the perpetrator is a ghost rather than a murderer.
    It has no real horror, but some fun goosebumps and memorable characters ranging in age
    from their twenties on up to sixties, each on a quest to pursue a goal or make a cherished
    dream come true.

    Is this something that would be of interest to you? I would be happy to send either a paperback
    copy or a Kindle format, whatever you prefer. I know how busy blog reviewers are and I don’t
    mind waiting if you are booked up for a while.

    Thank you for this wonderful service you provide to readers and authors alike!

    With all good wishes,

    Janet DeLee

    Synopsis:
    Dreams aren’t just for the young, and baby boomer Ginny Lawther
    is happy to prove that she can still brave a leap of faith…she just
    needs a little prodding from like-minded individuals. Step one: place
    an ad in the local newspaper inviting other dreamers to form an
    Ideal Life Club. Step two: see if anyone shows up.

    When Ginny meets four hopeful strangers at the first club meeting,
    she thinks they’re off to a great start. Now it’s only a matter of time
    before the sixty-something widow Hilda, turns her crafting into a
    full-time career; the twenty-something Jerry becomes a professional
    musician; and the thirty-something housewife Lydia publishes her
    cookbook. That is, until the rugged divorcé, Lee, sets a goal to solve
    his ghost problem—and upends all their lives!

    Suddenly the support group isn’t just trying to navigate the ups and
    downs of pursuing their dreams; they’re also wrestling with a strange
    cast of spirits who keep interrupting their endeavors. What do these
    apparitions want? And why have they latched on to the Ideal Lifers?

    • Hi Janet – well I have to say that this book sounds really interesting. I would love to read it! The Kindle version will be fine, although I won’t be able to start until I complete the 3 that I’m reading next. Thank you so much for the opportunity, and I look forward to it.

  2. Hi Linda, I had to check your site out and not because you are a reviewer – its those poodles! I grew up in a house where they were the main dog and I still love the breed today, though my own two (rescue dogs) are far from cute and small.
