What I'm Reading

Eternal on the Water by Joseph Monninger
"From the day Cobb and Mary meet kayaking on Maine's Allagash River and fall deeply in love, the two approach life with the same sense of adventure they use to conquer the river's treacherous rapids. But rivers do not let go so easily...and neither does their love. So when Mary's life takes the cruelest turn, she vows to face those rough waters on her own terms and asks Cobb to promise, when the time comes, to help her return to their beloved river for one final journey."

Kill Dress by John Young
"April, Joi, Nancy, Heather, and Kim were the best of friends. After losing her boyfriend, Kim was devastated and needed a vacation. Traveling to Louisiana in order to relax and clear her mind with her friend Joi, the two ladies discover an old woman whose ancient ancestors made dress garments for Queens Nefertari, Cleopatra, and the Queen of Sheba. Little did Kim know that these dress garments were made out of secret mystical fibers that had an uncanny sensual effect on some men. After Kim had a gorgeous dress made for her by the old woman, she and her friends find out that the sexy enchanted dress was more than they had bargained for. This amazing dress that Kim had decided to wear was affecting the sexual senses of a number of men, including arousing the killing senses of a brutal serial killer. Even TV reporters, talk show personalities, and other media outlets were starting to believe that the hypnotic, beautiful dress had something to do with the killings. Many believed that if Kim were to destroy the dress then the killings would stop. However, Kim defiantly decided that she should wear the Kill Dress no matter what the cost in order to show women that they have the Constitutional right to freedom of expression."

The Liberation of Henry Belmont by Steve Godofsky
"When Henry Belmont learns that he has ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) and has just three years to live, he doesn't make any phone calls. He doesn't rush to tell his friends and family. He tells no one. He doesn't want to be pitied for this fast approaching end to an unspectacular life. His life could have been different. He could have been something else, maybe even someone else. But he isn't going to waste the precious time he has left. Henry decides to spend the rest of his life doing the things that previously were relegated to fantasy. And in the end, he will find the freedom to be the person he's always wanted to be in The Liberation of Henry Belmont. Author Steve Godofsky grew up in Long Island, New York and now resides in Charlotte, North Carolina. The author of Mind Reader and Questionable Therapy, Steve is currently working on his next novel."

Size Eight in Size Zero World by Meredith Cagen
"Meet Lindsay Chandler-a 32 year-old New York working wife and mother with old-fashioned values who thinks she's living a fairy tale life (she's not). Then an unexpected friendship with her upstairs neighbor (he is smart, successful, sophisticated and sexy- she's not) unleashes her passion and re-ignites her sparkle. This liaison causes her to question the way she lives her life. Yearning for a storybook ending, she decides to make changes in her life, embarking on a quest for self re-invention."

Buried Alive by Roy Hallums
"Contractor Roy Hallums recounts the harrowing ten months he was held captive by Iraqi insurgents, the heroic rescue by American troops, and the faith that helped him survive it all."
