The Wide Window – Book Review

The Wide Window


The poor Baudelaire children onto their most vivid adventure yet! This adventure was absolutely stunning and utterly miserable.

Klaus has to be exceedingly clever and stubborn that there is something there. The ‘guardian’ was a so set in her ways. Terrified and ridiculous. I loved her for all of it. Of all the guardians so far that the Baudelaire children have encountered, this one is afraid of everything. I wonder what she would have been like before her dear husband Ike died and if she might not have made a good home for the children.

Once more the children are up against Count Olaf and his tricks. Either he may get them or the cold meals every night will. An adventure with a sailing boat across the storm and hungry leeches. More misery and cleverness to be sure!

I loved this one. Just loved it. The house, the cool library, the guardian’s fears. I could picture all of it happening just as it was happening. From the sad clown restaurant to the leeches! I laughed more in this book then any other book.

Banished Threads51dk63MHe9L._SX320_BO1,204,203,200_

A valuable art collection disappears turning a treasure-hunting duo into crime-stopping sleuths committed to vindicating family members in Kaylin McFarren’s action-packed suspense novel, Banished Threads.

While vacationing at the stately Cumberforge Manor in Bellwood, England, Rachel Lyons and Chase Cohen attend an elegant dinner party hosted by her uncle, Paul Lyons, and his aristocratic wife, Sara. Before the evening ends, a priceless collection of Morris Graves’s paintings are stolen from her uncle’s popular gallery, throwing all suspicion onto his wife’s missing granddaughter.

Determined to clear Sloan Rafferty’s name and, in the process, win Paul’s favor, Chase scours the countryside looking for answers. In his absence, the police accuse Rachel’s uncle of an unsolved murder and secrets surrounding her grandmother’s death and the deaths of Sara’s former husbands turn his wife into the most likely suspect. With the true villains hell-bent on destroying Paul Lyons and his family, solving both crimes while ensuring her uncle’s freedom not only endangers Rachel’s life but that of her unborn child. Will Chase save them before the kidnappers enact their revenge or will the ultimate price be paid, as predicted by a vagabond fortuneteller?
