Excellent!

This is Book 2 in the Amish Vines & Orchards Series. The secrets and worries of Rhoda, Landon, Samuel, & Jacob follow them to their move to Maine as they prepare a new Amish settlement

Yes, I loved the book. The characters are complex and the author does a great job describing the Amish ways to an outsider.
Suggest?
Yes, I would recommend this book to others - but be sure to read Book 1, first!

Good.

Enjoy?
I mostly enjoyed it. There were times when I was annoyed by the back and forth between Deirdre and her brother Tag.
Suggest?
Not sure.
Title
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
Author
Mark Haddon
Rating
Good.
Summary
This book is about 15 year old Christopher who has Asperger's and who is trying to find out who killed the neighbor's dog, Wellington. Not only does he solve that mystery, but he discovers truths about his mother and that he can be brave.
Enjoy?
I did enjoy the book. It's interesting reading a book narrated by someone with Asperger's. I did find the book sad though, particulary what happened to his family and just the general perspectives on life.
Suggest?
Yes. I think the narration is worth reading.
Title
The Wanderer
Author
Robyn Carr
Rating
Excellent!
Summary
This is Book 1 in a new series that she has created about the (fictional, I think) town of Thunder Point, Oregon. As such, the reader is introduced to many of the characters in the town, as well as their relationships, backgrounds, and situations that they are involved with.
Enjoy?
I did enjoy the book. The author describes each character as well as what the town, Thunder Point, is like in great detail - this makes me feel as if I know the town and the people in it, or at the very least, I want to visit them!
Suggest?
If you liked Robyn Carr's Virgin River series, I would definitely recommend this book (and the subsequent books that will follow). I already can't want to read the next few books in the series!
