The Lavender House Murder by Nikki Baker

Read a murder mystery that introduces you to a handful of women that stays in The Lavender House

Synopsis

By night – the bars, the music, the sexual energy.

By day – the beaches, the bay . . . Basking in the sun and the scent of suntan lotion.

And everywhere the women of Provincetown.

Among these women in the sun is Afro-American Virginia Kelly, on vacation apart from lover Emily.

Ginny has come to P-town with friend Naomi. They stay at Lavender House, a hotel for lesbians run by Sam, a woman with whom Naomi has had some dramatic history.

Other inhabitants include a “helper” named Anya. A writer and sometime guest named Joan. Loud Barb and her quiet partner. And in P-Town itself, a “car girl” Ginny is very much drawn to.

Then . . . Murder shatters the vacation bliss. For among the people brushing up against Ginny and Naomi for these few sensual days is a ruthless killer. And a victim whose death will change the lives of Ginny and Naomi.

Don’t miss this intriguing, sexy, highly contemporary novel. Nikki Baker, author of In the Game, is an authentic new Black voice in mystery fiction.

Now, I do not know about you, but I could not put this book down. I absolutely loved it, I stayed up all night to read this intriguing mystery, all the way up until almost midnight New Years Eve. Round of applause to Nikki. Great piece of work. Glad to know it was the last book of 2018. Great book to close a somewhat eventful year.

A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein

Who has not read A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein? I bet you cannot name one person who has not read this wonderful book.

Synopsis

A Light in the Attic delights with remarkable characters and hilariously profound poems in a collection readers will return to again and again.

Here is the attic you will find Backward Bill, Sour Face Ann, the Meehoo with an Exactlywatt, and the Polar Bear in the Frigidaire. You will talk with Broiled Face, and find out what happens when Somebody steals your knees, you get caught by the Quick-Digesting Gink, a Mountain snores, and They Put a Brassiere on the Camel.

Come on up to the attic of Shel Silverstein and let the light bring you home.

I remember reading this book when I was a child, and would laugh at all of the silly poems that was told. Thirty years later, I picked it up again, and I laughed again. Reading some of my favorite poems to my husband while we sat outside and enjoyed the sun.

Reading the A Light in the Attic brought me back to my childhood, and helped me escape the chaos, and put a smile on my face.

If you would like the feeling of your childhood, please, pick it up, and read it in your fort, in the playground, or even just outside with your family and share the silly poems.
