Book Review – In Her Shadow


In Her Shadow


In Her Shadow by Mark Edwards

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mark Edwards has written a whole slew of books and this is the 5th one of his that I have read. I received it as an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review. This book will not be out until next week. I must admit firsthand that I wasnt sure about it because there was some reference to psychic happenings in the book, but the more I read (which is why you should give a book more than a few pages) the more I wanted to turn the page to see just what was happening.

Jessica lost her sister, Izzy, to what the police termed as an accident. But she wasnt so sure it was, and five years after her death Jessica’s own daughter (who wasnt yet born when Izzy died) is now coming up statements that Izzy is talking to her about that time.

Wanting to get to the bottom of this Jessica goes ahead and tries to find out who “killed” her sister, only to be pulled into more scenarios surrounding her sister’s death that she never knew. I ended up finding myself wanting to finish this book to see if this was a murder, or accident and just how psychic Jessica’s daughter was…..very happy I did – didnt expect the ending….looking forward to more books by Edwards.

The Lying Game

The Lying Game

I read this book in 24 hours. Could not put it down. The Lying Game tells the story of 4 girls in a boarding school who clan together and make up this game of convincing lies.

Fast forward 17 years later, they receive a text from one of the girls ‘I need you” it reads. All girls gather to find out that their lying and secrets have finally caught up to them. Will this meeting cost them their relationships? their lives? their reputation and jobs?

The more you read, the more you find out that the consequences far out way the simple game they played.

We celebrated the first day of school – by not going

The first day of school…that happy time for parents who had the kids home all summer; for children wanting to get back and meet up with their friends; for days of learning and doing well.  And so, this year it was on a Wednesday and it was a beautiful day, hot but no rain.  So everyone was excited to go.  Except me.  I didnt go…instead I went to breakfast with friends…

How lucky are you?

Most of us play the Lottery, some play cards or go to Vegas to do the whole gambling thing like roulette and black jack.  But how many times do you win?  Are you the lucky type of person who always wins something….whether it’s a dollar or thousands of dollars.  I know I dont even win when I enter a book giveaway.

For years my son has bought me scratch offs on Mothers Day and – well, it was fun scratching them off.  But I do keep trying…because you never know.

And so, once again, we are doing Sweepstakes on Avon.  Very easy – just enter – nothing to buy – but you get the chance to win such great hydration products for your skin…..


Enter to win! 10 people will be chosen to receive an entire set of the brand NEW Anew Hydra Fusion skincare line.





So Sorry You Missed It

Yes, it has ended – As of August 20th you no longer can get it.  I am so sorry but I have been posting for the past two weeks hoping everyone would see it.  I did have three people who did and acted on it  They are very happy about it.  Actually someone asked about it this morning and I had to tell them that it is over……but

Plans change…and then

Have you ever had your day/week planned out.  I am a planner, I use a planner.  Besides the calendar in my phone, I keep a physical planner for my everyday life and my business.  And each moment is filled with something I must do, or see, or buy or deliver.  And so my week starts off with a visit from the grandkids, wanting to sleep over…so laundry that was planned does not get done.  I also planned to deliver an Avon order to a customer tonight. But alas those plans were changed because I could not install the thermostat I bought (you know the ones that I can control with a cell phone).

I waited for the tech to install it and in the process he blew out a fuse in my HVAC system.  So the plans I had tomorrow morning to go to my Weight Watchers meeting, will have to be changed as the HVAC tech will be here at the same time.  Maybe I will go later in the day or push it to Wednesday.  Was also planning to visit my son tomorrow night but he got a viral infection and with hubby’s resistance we could not chance a visit.

I still have to go shopping for the block party coming up on Saturday and trying to figure out when to fit that in.  Thursday is doctor day for hubby and I also have to take my grandson to his golf lesson.  Somewhere in between all this I will be delivering Avon brochures to old customers and new customers in the neighborhood.

I guess it is true what they say – Man makes plans and G-d laughs.  But this is minor compared other people’s  life changes and so it is all fixable or changeable.  And that is why pencils have erasers….
