Welcome to my #AmReading feature! I am highlighting an author and their book currently visible in the “Fair Weather” widget celebrating blue skies, following seas, and my Goodreads (currently reading) list.
This week I am presenting Nancy Bush (previously published as Nancy Kelly) and her book No Turning Back. This was a download from the publisher and #NetGalley. The book was released on December 26, 2017 by Zebra as an updated reprint of the original twenty years ago. Amazon classifies the novel as a mystery, thriller & crime, and kidnapping and is only 304 pages.
I will be presenting my review on Tuesday, January 2, 2018, as the last book of 2017. In the meantime (from Amazon), here is the
They find the body deep in the woods, lying beneath a carpet of wet leaves, eyes still open in a sightless stare. Three dark stains across his chest, and another bullet hole in his forehead.
Child psychologist Liz Havers made a mistake sixteen years ago, and she’s ready to face it. That means confronting Detective Hawthorne “Hawk” Hart, who’s come back to Woodside, Washington, after a case in LA went tragically wrong. His teenage son, Jesse, is finding it difficult to adjust, and stumbling across a dead man doesn’t help.
Bad things never used to happen in the small town of Woodside. Now no one is safe. And the more Hawk tries to untangle a terrifying web of greed and murder, the more desperate his adversary becomes to hide the truth, even if that means killing again and again . . .

Ah…. I see… LOL.
Here’s to the 2018 books. May there by many more on the very enjoyable side.
And for you as well. Thinking at my age I may have to stop forcing myself to finish a book I’m not thrilled about and just move on. There are so many…

I know. I keep telling myself that too. So far nothing I forced myself to finish was really that bad. Most of them ended up having some redeeming quality 😊
I just read this, I was really disappointed. I have always liked her books but the lead character- falling in love with a guy who used and left her, treated her horribly thru the whole book and she keeps going back for more. and this person is supposed to be counseling teen girls- she seemed to have the maturity of a teen girl when it came to this jerk. I felt it sent the wrong message. I keep hoping just one time she would let loose on him.

It was my first review in Jan 2018 and looking back on it, see I didn’t fully appreciate it either. It does send the wrong message. Rereading the blurb, it was written over twenty years ago and got a make-over, including the cover, which didn’t do a lot for me either. Some books just don’t click. Thanks for the comment!
