If you haven't read the The Rosie Project, it doesn't matter, this is complete and funny. Grand characters and such a delightful read.
This is the Mann Booker Award...I have read this..please tell me what you think.
I LOVED this book..it's about a bookstore. I thought Gabrielle was writing about my store ( it's smaller). I read it in one day and was charmed. Funny, great characters and a good tale..highly recommend for a rainy day..like today!!
Lori really liked this..a quick read, heart warming. Something when you need a lift after heavy stories
The Secret of Magic was a staff pick..so, of course, I had to read it. The main character is a black attorney working for Thurgood Marshall who is sent by him to a small town to investigate a plea for justice. The author, Deborah Johnson "Captures the duality of the Jim Crow South". In a compelling tale she portrays the intermingling and the deep divisions of the whites and blacks in the ritualized habits of the South. Magic has many meanings and shades. I find these stories so hard to read but this one like Washed, is well constructed and a strong story.
I have enjoyed Masie Dobbs from the beginning of the series. Each is complete within itself but they do progress. In this, she is grieving ( and no, I'm not going to tell you why) so she is traveling and of course gets involved in solving.
I find these novels well constructed and always a good story without violence or gore..refreshing.
I would enjoy having her to tea!!
