Private [Large Print]

Private ~ 5/5

Here's what www.amazon.com says:


Publisher's Note Former Marine and CIA agent Jack Morgan inherits his father's renowned security and detective business--along with a case load that tests him to the breaking point. Getting to the bottom of an NFL gambling scandal and an unsolved LAPD investigation into 18 school girl slayings would be enough. On top of all that, Morgan takes on solving the horrific murder of his best friend's wife. As Morgan fights the urge to exact brutal revenge on that killer, he has to navigate a workplace imbroglio that could blow the roof off his elite agency. And it's an especially explosive situation . . . because the love affair is his own.


For Keeps

For Keeps ~ 5/5

Here's what www.netflix.com says:

1988 PG-13 98 minutes

Molly Ringwald heads the cast as Darcy Elliot, an ambitious teen with big plans for college and a career in journalism -- until she ends up pregnant in this modern morality tale from director John G. Avildsen. Opting to keep the baby, Darcy and her boyfriend (Randall Batinkoff) marry, but will a host of pressures -- including school, parenthood and a stack of bills -- break up the young family? Miriam Flynn plays Darcy's intrusive mother.

My thoughts:

This movie was a wonderful story of how things can really work out for teen parents. How just because things don't go right how we planned or how we miss out on some things we've waited our lives for, there are blessings & you really can be in love, have problems & work together to get through them. I absolutely loved Molly Ringwald in this movie!! She hasn't aged a day.

MOVIE REVIEW: Blood Monkeys

Blood Monkey
Blood Monkeys ~ 3/5

Here's what www.netflix.com says:
2007 NR 88 minutes

Upon arriving in Africa to study the continent's resident apes with a noted professor (F. Murray Abraham), six graduate students are introduced to an exciting new breed of chimpanzee. It's the chance of a lifetime … until the students start dropping like flies. As the killer chimps chip away at the tribe of humans working in their midst, the survivors begin to wonder whether they'll ever get home alive in this gory horror flick.

My thoughts:

First off, the whole situation they got themselves into was crazy! I would have never went any farther than the man would take them. If the guy lives there & won't venture any further, there's a reason! That's a sign to go back!!

2nd, When some wierd scientist wants you to go deeper into the woods, you run! Forget about following him deeper into the woods!

Lastly, when some crazy monkey creatures are hunting you, their den is the last place you should head! They should have kept running! Going inside is a terrible idea!!

Here's what www.amazon.com says:

November 1, 2005

The USA Today bestselling collection from 21 of the hottest female writers around

In this must-have short-story anthology, Jennifer Weiner revisits one of her Good in Bed characters (and tells the story from, ahem, his point of view), Jill A. Davis (Girls' Poker Night) offers a darkly humorous take on starting over in New York and working with "the Elizabeths," Sarah Miynowski (Milkrun) tempts fate (and an on-again-off-again boyfriend) and Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez (The Dirty Girls Social Club) considers how different the words lady and woman are when paired with cat. Girls' Night In features stories about growing up, growing out of, moving out, moving on, falling apart and getting it all together. So turn off your cell phone and curl up on the couch; this is one Girls' Night In you won't want to miss.

My thoughts:

I just LOVED this book!! Short stories, just enough to make you want more from each author!!

My favorite was: What Goes Around... by Louise Bagshawe. It was just what you expect from a good story for girls!! A shocking ending where the prick husband gets just what he deserves in the end! Loved it!! Revenge by Emily Barr was pretty good too!!

Scream 4

Scream 4 ~ 5/5

Here's what www.netflix.com says:

2011 R 103 minutes

Perennial survivor Sidney Prescott, now a successful self-help author, returns to her home town of Woodsboro in the fourth act of director Wes Craven's Scream franchise. Sidney's homecoming, however, coincides with a slew of unsettling new murders.

My thoughts:

This movie played well with trying to recreate the first murders. The killer was shocking at the end, I wasn't expecting it. The ones I thought were responsible, I couldn't believe when they were killed. It was a great storyline & played in well with the theme of Scream!!

BOOK REVIEW: The Bone Garden

The Bone Garden: A Novel

The Bone Garden ~ 4/5

Here's what www.amazon.com says:

Unknown bones, untold secrets, and unsolved crimes from the distant past cast ominous shadows on the present in the dazzling new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen.

Present day: Julia Hamill has made a horrifying discovery on the grounds of her new home in rural Massachusetts: a skull buried in the rocky soil–human, female, and, according to the trained eye of Boston medical examiner Maura Isles, scarred with the unmistakable marks of murder. But whoever this nameless woman was, and whatever befell her, is knowledge lost to another time. . . .

Boston, 1830: In order to pay for his education, Norris Marshall, a talented but penniless student at Boston Medical College, has joined the ranks of local “resurrectionists”–those who plunder graveyards and harvest the dead for sale on the black market. Yet even this ghoulish commerce pales beside the shocking murder of a nurse found mutilated on the university hospital grounds. And when a distinguished doctor meets the same grisly fate, Norris finds that trafficking in the illicit cadaver trade has made him a prime suspect.

To prove his innocence, Norris must track down the only witness to have glimpsed the killer: Rose Connolly, a beautiful seamstress from the Boston slums who fears she may be the next victim. Joined by a sardonic, keenly intelligent young man named Oliver Wendell Holmes, Norris and Rose comb the city–from its grim cemeteries and autopsy suites to its glittering mansions and centers of Brahmin power–on the trail of a maniacal fiend who lurks where least expected . . . and who waits for his next lethal opportunity.

With unflagging suspense and pitch-perfect period detail, The Bone Garden deftly interweaves the thrilling narratives of its nineteenth- and twenty-first century protagonists, tracing the dark mystery at its heart across time and place to a finale as ingeniously conceived as it is shocking. Bold, bloody, and brilliant, this is Tess Gerritsen’s finest achievement to date.

"An old mystery is crossed with a modern story in the latest from Gerritsen (The Mephisto Club, 2006, etc.).Julia Hamill, newly divorced and still smarting, purchases an old house outside Boston. Determined to dig a garden, she instead finds the bones of a long-dead woman–the apparent victim of murder–which starts her on a journey to ferret out the story behind her death. Julia connects with Henry, a no-nonsense 89-year-old with boxes of documents that once belonged to the now-deceased previous owner of Julia’s home. The two discover a mystery dating back to the 1830s. At the heart of it is a baby named Meggie, born to the beautiful but doomed Irish chambermaid, Aurnia. Married to a man who cares nothing for her, Aurnia lays dying in a maternity ward with her sister, Rose, at her side. Rose, a spirited 17-year-old, takes Meggie to protect her from Aurnia’s husband, but soon finds herself the target of a bizarre manhunt. Someone is after the child–and Rose, as well, because she witnessed a horrifying murder. The body count piles up as Rose struggles to remain free of those who would take Meggie from her. Meanwhile, a young medical student becomes the chief suspect of the West End Reaper killings when he stumbles onto another terrible homicide. Although he fights the prospect, eventually he and Rose join forces to solve the murders and protect the baby at the heart of the mysterious deaths. Readers with delicate stomachs may find Gerritsen’s graphic descriptions of corpse dissection hard to take, but the story, which digs up a dark Boston of times long past, entices readers to keep turning pages long after their bedtimes."

My thoughts:

What a great love story!! The book is over 600 pages, before page 100, I didn't want to stop reading. It was not only historical & told of times where they didn't have any of the luxuries we have today, but they also had lots of death due to illness & neglect. It told a sad, but lovely story of a young girl who takes on care of her niece and is accused at first of being the West End Reaper. She is cleared only to find that the man she loves is being framed for that same crime. As she fights to save the man she loves, she's forced to trust the untrustable & put herself right in the way of the reaper. It was intriguing & lovely ~ a must read!!
