The Girl in Black Pajamas by CHRIS BIRDY is another excellent novel, which continues on from The Girl in White Pajamas, following our hero and heroine as they try to build there lives together.
The truly remarkable thing about the author script is the descriptive style of writing she uses that brings the characters to life and you can actually envisage them in your mind. Along side the descriptive notations is the traits and characteristics that are inside of everyone and with this humanization it makes for a enthralling read.As one of Bogies employers is shot he is drawn to find out why and by whom. As the investigation takes him away from home his real battle begins in keeping his family together and close on his tail is someone who wants him dead.In parts there is scenes of a sexual nature which are essential to the story line of one of the characters asking the question to what means would you go to survive.Bogie's portrayal of his loyalty to his family and friends is the real story line and if you stand by your convictions and stay true to your ethos, those around you will come round to your way of thinking.and will make the bond stronger.Another great page turner of a story which is full of twists and turns and suspense right to the end. It will make you think about your relationships with your close friends and family.

This book is well written with clear explanations and descriptions of anything to do with finance. The author uses clever examples of everyday life to make the best use of our money. When we go to work to make money, how many of us actually make the income work for us? A chapter is designed for the American market the 401 (k) and the their social security system which I didn't really understand, being in the UK, but still picked out useful information out that I could use.The question of does really paying for a good education make you more money, ie being laden with student loans for a long length of time work, is a very apt one for every parent especially when the costs are around £9000 per academic year . Working together with your spouse / partner to work to a budget by creating a spread sheet and sticking to it can have a massive influence on your finances. By identifying what is luxury and what is an necessity is well defined .This book will give you food for thought and the hints it mentions will make a difference not only to your finances but will also enrich your lifestyle. If you have money / finance problems read this book and also the selected literature that the writer mentions in his book.

'a well written and absorbing book with a realistic tone and deep subject matter' reviews The Book Review
The first chapter sucked me into the story right away as I tried to imagine 15 years of marriage to a man who now confesses he is in love with someone else.. and no it's not another woman, it's another man. Amanda goes through the grieving process, but manages to pull her self up rather well, I thought , under the circumstances. She has a fourteen year old daughter and a sister who is both very supportive and very honest and who keeps her grounded.
When Amanda meets Bradley, the quarterback for a professional football team, she agrees to go out with him. Why not? However, there is a little bit of an age difference, but Amanda is trying not to let that bother her. However, her subconscious mind has other ideas which includes some rather vivid dreams.
The main theme running through the book was that despite the way her marriage ended, Amanda is still going through a the painful divorce process and the author does a wonderful job of putting the reader in the midst that pain and angst. Remembering Derrick as he was when they first dated, then the signs she missed, the good times, the bad times, the bitterness, anger, confusion, the whole ball of wax. Trying to keep comments and actions neutral for the daughter's sake, but not always succeeding, having Derrick be a class A jerk one moment and perfectly reasonable the next was adding to all the stress. One minute she was positively giddy when Bradley was around or when they were exchanging text messages and the next she was depressed over her failure with Derrick and doubting the relationship with Bradley. The problem was that she was jumped into the relationship with Bradley before she had her feelings settled about Derrick. It was about the age difference, but it was also about Amanda not being ready for something this serious so soon. So, what to do? Does she enjoy her time with Bradley now and let things run their course? Break it off before things get too serious and someone gets hurt? Will her head rule her heart or will love conquer all?
Book Review of After the Fog by Kathleen Shoop
"A remarkable fictional story based on a factual event. A poisonous smog descends upon the town Rose Pavlesic has created a life in. She is a bit preoccupied with her nursing duties at times. The challenges abound as she tries to proportion her nursing and family. Grim and shocking events unfold for many as the smog takes control of the inhabitants. Several people have secrets and lies that reveal themselves, including Rose! Shoop’s research into the real life cataclysmic 1948 Donora Smog is clearly fortunate for anyone reading this story. The author created an interesting character in the somewhat controlling Rose. Yet we are able to follow as Rose slowly learns that her controlling ways have left her failing to be a real part of her family. The struggles in this saga are captivating and I could not put it down til the read was complete."
