5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and Suspenseful Thriller


Verified Purchase
I love thrillers, but the one thing I’m always missing is a story with a strong female in the lead role. And that’s exactly what this book has. Gwynn Reznick is a resourceful young woman, who knows her stuff when it comes to stealthy, undercover operations, and she uses all her skills and charms to get the job done. The one thing I really loved about this book is how the author managed to portray Gwynn as a skilled undercover operative, or PI, in a world of high stakes business without sacrificing her femininity, or having her do her job using seduction, etc. which seems to be the stereotypical role of women in thrillers.

Overall, the book is very well written and well paced. The author has a clear and concise writing style and I had no trouble picturing the scenes in the book as they unfolded. The twists and turns will keep you guessing right up to the end, and, believe me, you’ll be glued to the page for the duration. I know I was!

Highly recommended for all thriller fans!

A THRILL A MINUTE - ENGROSSING, AND BRILLIANTLY WRITTEN
Verified Purchase
I thought that The Cost of Crude was fabulous, but little did I know that Ms. Goss would take the Gwynn Resnick series five steps higher in Cisco Bandits. It was/is a book that is a thrill a minute, leaving you guessing from the beginning to the last page just who, what, and why so many people were dying (supposedly) by accident.
I adore the characters, each one is fully formed, and you feel as if you’d love to know some of them, and yes, work for Ruben, except of course that danger is usually best read about.
The twists and turns of the plot keep you reading far into the night. Why I even had to plug my kindle in to finish reading, as I couldn’t put it down and the book was way to engrossing to stop for the night.
Ms. Goss has a rare talent for pulling the reader into the story and making it so real you feel as if you are there.
I highly recommend this series, now on to Burning Water, as I must see what happens to Gwynn Resnick on her next assignment.

‘A Walk Though Nature’ is a coffee table poetry book by Marta Moran Bishop and Saket Suryesh. It has a collection of thirty poems, of which twenty six are by Marta and the rest four are by Saket.
The poetries by Marta are lucid and lyrical. She uses nature as her background to bring forward universal emotion like hope, grief, loneliness, love and growth. The poetries are so lyrical at times that it feels like a song, which is definitely a pleasure. The description of nature in all its colors is done very vividly; the reader can actually picture it. Some lines are just so beautiful that it stays with one. In the poem, ‘Finding the light’ she writes poignantly, “It is then we will meet again/When the time is ripe for us/ With luck lessons are learnt/And we meet again without hurt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry that induces a rich and enlivening read...

The poems in EMOTIONS convey the author’s views about nature, love, relationships, life and death. My usual preference is to read novels and memoirs yet, after my read of the author’s real-life story, ‘Dinky: The Nurse Mare’s Foal,’ I found myself gravitating towards her poetry.


The poetry in EMOTIONS is poignant; the flow of words in each poem induced in me a rich and enlivening experience during my read. Although many of the poems are validations of Ms. Bishop’s personal emotional roller coaster ride due to her life’s experiences, it often felt as if the author was writing about my own. I resonated deeply with “Fire Within,” “Invisibility” and “Lessons of Life”– each triggered vivid memories and gave me pause to reflect on aspects of my own journey through life.

The poems in ‘Nature’ took me into a place of nostalgia, moments when I took more time to pause and listen to the world around me. The poetry in the category, ‘Silly Me,’ took me back into childhood; they are simply delightful.

“Death I Am Not Afraid” and “Life’s Miracles” are two that especially resonate with the person that I am today

SUNLIGHT AND SHADOWS IS A DEEP REFLECTION OF A VICTIM, SURVIVOR AND A BEAUTIFULLY EMPATHETIC HUMAN BEING THAT HAS RISEN ABOVE THE PERPETRATORS OF THE PAST AND FOUND BEAUTY IN PEOPLE, NATURE, AND ANIMALS.

Marta Moran Bishop continues her journey in Sunlight and Shadows. This book of poetry, unlike A Poet’s Journey: Emotions, is a more thought-provoking book. In its pages, she covers everything from God to life after death, war, and the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Still, she is able to bring to life the beauty and grandeur of her surroundings and make us laugh, cry, think, and feel.

Sunlight and Shadows will once again, take you on an emotional journey through life.

She believes it is how we deal with despair, tragedy, and joy that define us as human beings.


5.0 out of 5 starsPowerful and rich...reminds me I am not alone.


Powerful and rich...reminds me I am not alone.
It is rare for me to read a book of poetry – stories are my usual preference. After being captivated by the author’s stories, however, the reviews written for her poetry captured my interest.
In SUNLIGHT AND SHADOWS, some of the poems are powerfully raw: edgy, spunky, and intense – like ‘Shackled’ and ‘Innocence Lost.’ The author bares her soul and because she did, her poems gave me a strong sense of fearless courage in the face of daunting challenges. I did not need the details usually found in a story to understand.
In other poems, the tones are whimsical and daring, as in ‘The Dance;’ and, in a few, her expressions are poignantly thought-provoking relative to current issues, as in ‘You Should Have Known.’
A favorite life-theme of mine, transformation, is the thread that I found to be richly woven into the poetry of SUNLIGHT AND SHADOWS. Several of my favorites are: ‘I Wonder,’ ‘If You Believe,’ ‘Honor,’ and ‘Bright Spirit Show Us the Way.’

Enlightened by my read, the poetry written by Marta Moran Bishop sits next to my reading chair – for moments of reflection and to remind me that I am not alone on this journey through life.

This wonderful book is not only cha rming, but it holds a bit of magic on each page ... the kind of magic of days gone by. The beautifully rendered prose urges us to remember, to close our eyes and revisit slower days, childhood days, when there were no cell phones or computers to distract us from seeing the wonders in nature and the world of make-believe..." - Beth Hoffman, Author of NY Times Best Seller, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt "...Throughout the pages of Wee Three, author Marta Moran Bishop takes the reader on a poetic trip back in time to the simpler, carefree years of our youth, when nothing was more important than chasing bumblebees or taking jovial walks through the snow... Kudos to Bishop for highlighting the essence of innocence in such fun-filled, comprehensive fashion." - Wendy Paulson - Apex Reviews Recapture the pure joy of life when one's imagination was the key to play. About the Author: Marta Moran Bishop has fond memories growing up in rural Northern Minnesota. Her grandmother, Helen Springer Moran, also shares memories of raising her children in Washington, D.C.; together, they share seventy years of memories, dating back to the year 1924. 


Wee Three: A Mother's Love in Verse

Marta Moran-Bishop with Helen Springer Moran
Illustrations by Hazel Mitchell

"Wee Three" is a charming and delightful collection of poems for children. Marta Moran-Bishop truly captures the voice and curiosity of a little child.

The detailed pen and ink illustrations by Hazel Mitchell, bring the text alive. Her lovely, delicate artwork puts me in mind of my favorite A.A. Milne books as a child. The watercolor on the front is colorful and full of sunshine.

"Wee Three" is the "Now We Are Six" of the 21st Century. I loved the poems and illustrations in this beautiful little book. My granddaughter, who is three, particularly loved "Upside Down Land". My favorites are "Lonely" and "When I'm A Lady".

This is a wonderful book to share with children and awaken their love of poetry. I highly recommend "Wee Three" for children of all ages--and adults who are children at heart.

This book opens dramatically with a man being attacked and then thrown to his death from a oil platform. The scene then switches to Julie, an employee of Wilton Gas & Oil, who decides to do a little spying to find out if the company, as she suspects, is planning a merger. She plants bugs in the conference room prior to an important meeting and, later, when she goes to retrieve them, is confronted by a brawny, muscular man who discovered what she was up to. The next day, her best friend and fellow employee, Gwynn Resnick, is shocked to learn that Julie died the night before in an unlikely automobile accident. Gwynn suspects foul play. But who would want to kill Julie?

Thus, begins Gwynn’s journey into a dark world fueled by corporate greed and intrigue. Accompanying her on this voyage, is Ruben, a private investigator of sorts hired by the dead girl’s grandmother. Together, Gwynn and Ruben, along with an assortment of Mission Impossible-style investigators, try sort out what really happened to Julie and, more importantly, why.

The Cost of Crude is a fast-paced thriller that has numerous twists and turns as the reader makes his/her way to the final shocking conclusion. The characters are cleverly drawn and the plot is complex. A real page-turner, this is the exciting start to a new series featuring the aforementioned Gwynn Resnick.

Highly recommended for lovers of corporate intrigue and mystery/thrillers.

THE COST OF CRUDE – A GWENN RESNICK MYSTERY – BOOK 1 BY INGE-LISE GOSS, did something most books don’t do, it kept me reading till my eyes could not keep open, till my mind begged for sleep, but oh how I wanted to read on.
Right from the first pages, you are caught! As I read on, I became more and more enthralled with the characters and story. Mind you, I am not usually interested in the Oil and Gas industry, but even the descriptions included of pipelines, etc., managed to hold my interest, as they were important in the discovery of who were the bad guys.
I fell completely in love with the beautifully written, and well-defined characters as they entered stage left or just fell into your lap as the saying goes.
It is no wonder that Ms. Goss has been on both the USA Today and Amazon bestselling author list, she deserves every award and accolade if all her books are as great.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE TO BE A CARETAKER? PERHAPS YOU BELIEVE ONE DAY YOU MIGHT FACE IT? 'A WALK WITH VIRGINIA' A MEMOIR BY JILL ZAPATA IS A GREAT READ FOR EVERYONE.


To walk with another person can be as mundane as putting on one's socks and shoes, or it can be a twisting, turning, life-changing journey into unknown territory. It can also be everything in between. My walk with Virginia was life changing. It was unexpected. It was challenging. It was frustrating and confusing. We had highs, and we had lows. Thankfully, it was also awe-inspiring and extraordinary.


Have you ever been a caregiver for a family member or a friend? Is it, perhaps, on the horizon of your life? Or maybe you cannot yet see the horizon. Make no mistake, it is not a question of love, whether to provide much needed and potentially long-term care. It is a question of necessity. Love, and devotion born out of love, are the firmly rooted footings on which you stand when providing this necessary care. Humor is the grab bar you grip tightly when the ground below you begins to shake or shift. Patience is paramount. I survived it, and you can, too. I believe I am a better person having had the experience.

My story is a true account of my caregiving experience with my mother-in-law. It lasted only a few short years and, in that time, carved such deep and permanent remembrances too good not to share. Some would ask, "why share something so personal?", and my reply would be, "why not?". Life is so much sweeter when shared with others. I hope you find comfort, a little guidance perhaps, enjoy a few laughs, and chew on some 'food for thought' as you journey with Virginia and I through the blessings and blunders of Caregiving!

I loved everything about this book. It is very encouraging to anyone going thru a similar situation. The humor is an extra added bonus. When one goes thru bad times, humor always helps. Without faith, humor and sharing with friends, hard times seem much darker. This is a great book to give to anyone that has been given the responsibility of caregiving.

5.0 out of 5 stars A HEARTWARMING, COMPASIONATE LOOK AT LIFE AS A CARETAKER
Reviewed in the United States on August 27, 2021
I just finished reading the most heartwarming, compassionate memoir by Jill Zapata ‘A Walk With Virginia.’ In it, Ms. Zapata recounts her time spent as a caretaker for her future mother-in-law Virginia.
Having spent time as a caretaker for my mother, I can attest that there are both the funny, as well as those that were heartbreaking, confusing, and yet as Ms. Zapata puts it a ‘fellow feeling’ happens that can only be, between those who you have spent the time as their caretaker.
For as they lose their mobility, ability to do things they once could, and sometimes even their ability to communicate, or hold onto a thought, or activity for long, they become not only your friend, but your child, and no relationship can you ever be quite as close to another, as you do when you become a caretaker.
Yes, it is at times challenging, emotional, frustrating, and difficult, but the joys, and laughter lives on in us so much longer than those harder memories.
I loved this book and shall be one I reread over the years.

The story of five Tudor queens who find themselves drawn together again in Victorian London's Whitechapel district and the US in the 1960s. The challenges they face and deal with are love, betrayal, and finding their way to personal independence. What is the strange attraction they feel toward the sinister man around whom they orbit like satellites? Which of these women will break free and which will fall victim to him again and again? 


Franki deMerle has rapidly become one of my favorite authors. I love her character portrayal and the depth she is able to pull out of each of them. It fascinates me to follow each character through lifetime after lifetime as their souls attempt to learn the lessons they failed at in the past.

This is one of my favorites for it takes one through some of the most fascinating and devilish periods of history.

WHAT HAPPENED TO CRAZY ED THAT MADE HIM SIT IN THE DIRTY ALLEY STARING AT THE WALL DAY AFTER DAY? WHERE DID HE DISAPPEAR TO? THE OTHER SIDE A SHORT PARANORMAL LOVE STORY BY PATRICIA MORAN AND MARTA MORAN BISHOP

 


The people in the neighborhood called him Crazy Ed. He sat day after day on an ashcan in the alley staring at the dirty brick wall. Most didn’t know where he had come from or why he was there, but Ed was a quiet man with silver hair, and a sad expression on his face, so they left him alone. Few noticed him and most paid no attention what-so-ever to him.
Once in a while if a spare moment presented itself, they wondered who he was, until one day Ed disappeared.

“This isn’t my world Isle, even if I feel as if it’s my home.”

“It is your home, Edward. It always has been. You only had

To allow yourself to find it.”

Daphne Robin is ecstatic. She has just married Richard, the most wonderful man she's ever met, and they will honeymoon in Scotland. But on the eve of their departure, Daphne has a terrifying nightmare about Richard that leaves her shaken. The dream turns into reality when Richard begins abusing her in Scotland. Several months later, following his brutal attack, when Daphne announces she has become pregnant, he brutally attacks her--and then she suffers a miscarriage.

The only place Daphne can find refuge from her wrecked life is within her dream world. She often dreams of a warm-hearted, tender man who comforts her and provides for her every need.

As a woman who is curious about nearly everything, I picked up Dragonfly Dreams looking for a sense of possibilities. I found that and more. Franki deMerle is a masterful storyteller, combining the dream state with possible reality.

What is reality and what is truth. Have we lived before? Do we dream our way into a better future? Are all these possibilities just a magnificent story?

I loved this book. Ms. deMerle wrote characters that were captivating and three dimensional, whether they were reliving a past life or living in the present. Definitely a book to be read and enjoyed, and it left me with more than a good read. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in reincarnation or just a great story.
