I got a bad case of the Mondays, but it started on Sunday. I woke up Sunday morning and the first thing I did was check on my caterpillars in the huge butterfly habitat my hubby made for me. I had about five or six Swallowtails that were just about to go into chrysalis and about 20 or so others from tiny babies to only a week or so away from their last stage. I also had about 15 or so Monarch caterpillars that were still small but growing fast. Sunday morning though, I discovered a rat sized hole at the back of the habitat and the entire caterpillar population wiped out. Everyone was gone. I am absolutely heartbroken over this and there is nothing I can do abut it. Let’s just say for the first half of the day I was not a whole lot of fun to be around. There is only one thing for me to do though… start over. I will make adjustments and just start over. Lesson learned.

As the Twin Cities’ most prominent Investigative reporter, Claire Daniels was stunningly attractive… blonde hair, blue eyes and a curvaceous body she worked on relentlessly. She was the desire of every man in town. He had already secretly observed her working out at the club three times now. After waiting 45 minutes, he peered one last time through the gap in her closet door and stepped into the room while she slept.

Murder. Greed. Treason.
St. Paul Homicide Detective Mac McRyan thought his day was going to be less stressful with only a little paperwork and hopefully an early trip to the pub. Then his cell phone rang… he urgently rushes to the scene to find a body in a high-end condominium between Summit and Grand Avenues, and it’s not just anyone. With the brutal, high-profile Daniels’ murder compounded by the latest serial killer attack, the media pressure on the police department only builds and places Mac in the middle of a dangerous and high-stakes murder investigation that will ultimately have national political and security implications.

Betty Zane (The Ohio River Trilogy)
by Zane Grey
4.5 Stars (298 Reviews)
Genre: Classics | Historical Fiction

FREE for a limited time

The legendary western author’s debut novel based on the real-life adventures of his own ancestor, an American frontier heroine of the Revolutionary War.

In the late eighteenth century, Wheeling, West Virginia, was the western frontier of colonial America. And when the young nation fought for its independence, Wheeling was the site of the American Revolution’s last battle: the Siege of Fort Henry. A vivid work of historical fiction, Betty Zane brings to life the events that culminated in that vicious attack.

On September 11, 1782, an army of two hundred British troops, together with four hundred members of the Shawnee Tribe, descended on the small fort. As enemy forces approached, Col. David Shephard charged the Zane family with mounting a defense. And while many fought bravely to save the fort, the heroine of the battle was Silas Zane’s young and spirited daughter, Betty.

Betty Zane is the first novel in a trilogy of historical westerns set along the Ohio River. It is followed by The Spirit of the Border and The Last Trail.

The Roll-Away Pumpkin
by Junia Wonders, Daniela Volpari
4.5 Stars (849 Reviews)
Genre: Children’s eBooks | Foreign Languages

FREE for a limited time

A wonderful & whimsical autumn tale!

Multi-award-winning author and illustrator team delight young readers with a rollicking sequencing story.

When a large pumpkin gets away from its young owner, Marla, an amusing and lighthearted pursuit ensues. As it rolls down country roads, through a farm’s haystacks, past a milkman and his cart, over a stone bridge, through a city’s bistro, and past a butcher shop, readers will enjoy as each subsequent person joins in the young girl’s chase after the runaway, rollaway pumpkin, making for a silly procession that gets even sillier when the group encounters a marching parade. A pleasing ending has the ever-growing group enjoying a cauldron of pumpkin soup.

With stunning illustrations in beautiful muted earthy tones, many small details make each spread a delight in poring over — a dog with little sausages in its mouth, street signs that point “this way” and “that way”, a tiny windmill in the distance, leaves fluttering down on the country road, fresh baguettes stacked up in the baker’s wagon. A wonderfully lilting text is beautifully typeset in a fun and whimsical way, curving along the streets and alleys. A repeated refrain throughout the story adds a fun opportunity for young readers to chant along.

A short and simple story, The Roll-Away Pumpkin is a perfect read-aloud for families and educators of young children, while its highlighted keywords, repetitive language, and predictive nature make it ideal for beginner readers.
