Broke and alone after breaking up with her long-time boyfriend, romance writer January Andrews moves to the only place she can go to--her late father’s love shack. She didn’t know about the house on the shores of Lake Michigan or the affair until his girlfriend appeared at her father’s funeral. The mysterious neighbor next door changes her plans to clear the house of old family memories, sell it, and move on with her life. He is a popular author of mysteries and they challenge each other to write a book in each other’s genres. What begins as a dare turns into much, much more. This is a really fun read! ~ Reviewed by Suzanne Rice

It has been ten years since her first book The Dirty Life was published. In her second long awaited book, the author writes about the daily challenges she and her husband face living and working on their farm in northern New York. This is an honest account of farm life; raising two little girls while working long hours, managing a diverse group of help, and money-always money. Full of grit and humor, this book is well worth the wait! ~ Reviewed by Suzanne Rice

In this raw look at the life of a Texas Border Patrol Guard, the author writes of the reality of a failed system where the humanitarian efforts of search and rescue take a back seat to the capture of drug smugglers. His vivid descriptions explain how those protecting the U.S. borders can become indifferent to the human sacrifice of those trying to cross over to a better life. An important read for anyone wanting to understand the border patrol's mandate. ~ Reviewed by Suzanne Rice
