"Blood Ties" by Kay Hooper, "Letter to My Daughter" by George Bishop, "Change Your Brain, Change Your Body" by Dr. Daniel Amen.
The Clarion/Goldfield pre-schoolers walked up to see me today. It's always fun to see them and enjoy their enthusiasm for life. I read to them once a month and stop in at Kids' Korner once a week. We generally share three or four stories and enjoy a finger play or song. It gives my ego a boost when people are that happy to see me!
Kay Hooper will entertain readers with, "Blood Ties". The FBI's elite Special Crimes Unit is a group of misfits trained to use their psychic abilities to hunt the worst criminals. Led by Noah Bishop, the SCU has earned a reputation for pitting their skills against killers that other cops fear. This time bishop and his agents face an enemy who has them in his sights, a trained sniper with a deadly plan. What starts as a series of grisly murders across three states ends in a small Tennessee town where the brutal killings of two more victims lure SCU into what may be the ultimate trap.
George Bishop's debut novel is entitled, "Letter to My Daughter". The story begins with a fight between fifteen-year-old Elizabeth and her mother, Laura. After a slap from her mother, Elizabeth storms out of the house. Filled with guilt while she awaits her daughter's return Laura begins a letter to her, hoping to convey the things she always wished to tell her but didn't. The letter shares memories of Laura's own troubled adolescence and about growing up in an ultra-conservative household. She tells of a relationship with a boy she loved despite her parents' disapproval and the events that led to her being sent away to a strict Catholic boarding school. This is story of mothers and daughters and the lessons they learn when they come of age.
