Patron Book Reviews - January 2017

Book reviews provided by EPL Patrons

Into the Savage Country by Shannon Burke
If you like adventure stories about fur trappers and Indians, this is a GREAT story!

In Paradise by Peter Matthiessen
Heartbreaking story! A man comes to terms with the fact that his mother was Jewish and died (probably) at Auschwitz. These kind of stories never grow old because they are necessary for the human soul.

The Road to Grace by Richard Paul Evans

Love the story line and the wonderful view of life. Nice to see a little twist in the plot. A must read series.

Murder on a Girls' Night Out by Anne George

This is a good mystery that will make you laugh. It's the first book of a series that are fun, easy reads. The genre is mystery, but could be call humorous mystery or humurous fiction.

The Pastor's Wife by Jennifer AIlee
Delightful! East read, interesting characters and plot. Great inspirational romance.

River Road by Jane Anne Krentz
I would recommend this book. It is fast-paced and full of surprise. One happened 13 years prior to the most recent. It keeps you guessing right up to the end.

Emma by Jane Austen
Emma, the last book published by Austen when she was alive, give you a delightful yet infuriating heroine. Emma gets herself in trouble with matchmaking, thoughtless flirting, and cattiness. But like most of Austen's works, the heroine and hero come to a mutual understanding.

Sycamore Row by John Grisham
This book takes you back to the same location as "A Time to Kill", but Jake Brigance isn't defending anyone! He's a dead man's lawyer working to make sure his will goes as he wanted. Expect Grisham's twists and turns. Another great story!

Aunty Lee's Deadly Specials by Ovidia Yu
Delightful characters, good mystery, interesting Singapore food and culture.

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell
This love story begins on a school bus set in the 80's. These young adults begin to connect over comics and good music. One comes from a strong loving family, and the other comes from a family of hardship. I would highly recommend this book to others. The two lovers remind us of what first/young love is all about. Someone who accepts us for who we are - faults and all. This book reminded me of my own first love. This was a thoroughly enjoyable read.
