The Secret of Everything

Review
I was expecting your usual romance novel but author O'Neal delivered so much more. A mystery, a cold case murder, ageing hippies, repressed childhood memories, mystical powers at work and yes, steamy romance too, all set in scenic New Mexico. For food lovers there are breakfast recipes with a southwestern flair scattered throughout the book. And dog lovers will also be pleased to find their canine friends front and center in the story. I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading other novels by this author.   Catalog

The Chance

Review
The Chance is the fourth book in the Thunder Point series, about a small town in Oregon and its residents. Though this book could stand on it's own, I find it more satisfying having read the previous books in the series. It makes for a better read knowing the history and back story of each of the characters, even if they are only part of the supporting cast in this book. The Chance is character driven dealing with such issues as loss, hope, redemption and second chances. And it touches, in the later part of the story, on the trials and difficulties of dealing with parents that suffer from Alzheimer's and a terminal disease. Interestingly, the book is dedicated to caregivers. Reading The Chance is like catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.   Catalog

Twin sisters with different viewpoints of life and both have psychic powers. One sister tries to hide her powers and makes poor life choices, the other embraces it to the point of where she predicts an earthquake. Difficult book to keep interested in...definitely not a favorite read.  Catalog
