Review of Loose Ends by Terri Reid

Product DetailsWho doesn’t love following a private investigator as they uncover clues to a crime? But add to that one who actually sees and talks to dead people as she investigates the paranormal and you’ve got a fun, quirky read.

It isn’t only the ghosts you have to worry about in this book. Politicans are known for harboring secrets. But could one of them resort to murder in order to keep them quiet?  The local law enforcement has a mystery of his own to solve? But is it paranormal?  Unfortunately, I'll have to buy the next installment to find out the answer.

I couldn’t put this one down. I'll be reading the sequel soon.

When I Married My Mother by Jo Maeder I Married My Mother wasn't my normal type of reading material, but as a caregiver I can certainly relate to Jo Maeder's journey.. Though our circumstances are different (mine is my paraplegic husband, while hers is her ailing mother) we go through a lot of the same concerns.

What I found most interesting about this book was the author's distant relationship with her mother when she suddenly became the prime caregiver. Maeder uprooted herself from her New York lifestyle to care for her mother in a small Christian town. Through all their troubles, - and there were many - Jo finally established a mother-daughter relationship with the mother she'd barely known.

This is a great feel-good book anyone would enjoy. Highly recommended.
