"A touching, emotional and realistic romance" - by Marsha @ Keeper Bookshelf
For me, The Almost Wife was one of those books that when I finished the last page I simply sat back and let it all sink in for a bit. Although, admittedly, it did get off to a slow start at first just give it a moment and you’ll soon be caught up in the lives of three brides and the bridal shop owner who oversees all the brides getting ready for their special day, along with some memories of her own and plans for her future. Jessie, Dolly, Emily and Helen – four women who will have their lives turn out quite differently from what they expected when all the plans started. Told in alternating chapters, from several points of view we step into lives that are full of love, happiness, fears, confusion, tragedy, anger, sadness and so much more.

Of course, I had my own favorites ... full review

"My favorite beach book of all time" - by Holly (Indiana, USA)
When this book first came out in 2002, I thought the cover was fabulous and bought the paperback on a whim. I really was unaware of this category of novel called "beach book" at the time so this was my first exposure. I absolutely loved it from beginning to end. It has stuck in my mind over the years and has pretty much become my gold standard by which I judge all other beach reads. In a fit of de-cluttering a few years back, I donated the book but still remembered it fondly. I saw that a new novel was being published by the same author and the title was "Beach House Memories". Upon further investigation, I realized it is related to the first novel and tells the story of Olivia and Russell. Since I had loved the book so much, I purchased ... full review

"The OPPOSITE of tight, clever and interesting!" - by Rebecca
This book sounds good on paper, so to speak. Fun, heist-oriented plot; interesting subject matter with the writer angle, great potential for that perfect blend of suspense, mystery and intrigue, and a popular proven author. Unfortunately, it delivers on virtually none of its potential. Before I point out a laundry list of irritations, I will just say a really good way to describe my reading experience with this novel is to point out two things I did while reading it.
1. I had to double-check several times to make sure it wasn't an abridged version.
2. I also, seriously, double-checked to make sure it was a John Grisham novel.
Ok, the laundry list:
1. This book was begging for a subplot about the circumstances around grandma's death. Characters were introduced and the set-up was there.... and then, just nothing.
2. Our protagonist was milk-toast. You neither hate nor like her much.
3. There was seriously NO ... full review

"Great book to launch The Daily 5" - by penny
I really liked the pictures and the rhymes. This book will help teachers guide their readers into discussion about great, and also, not so great, spots for reading. You could also use this book to connect to other books, like Goldilocks!

"The Simple Way to Reach your Investment Goals." - by Jusuf Hariman (Australia)
William Bernstein, author of "The Four Pillars of Investing" calls this booka "little gem that belongs to every investor's book shelf". Indeed, this book will change the way you invest. Daniel Solin cuts through the financial hype to show you exactly how assets should be invested with easy-to-follow plan that allows you to create and monitor your portfolio in 90 minutes or less...and put your investment earnings in the top 5% of all professionally managed money. You can avoid the biggest mistakes most investors make. They are: (1). Buying into the hype that stock pickers and market timers are anything but a fool's errand; (2). Giving to much credence to the media and self-style gurus who peddle "financial pornography"; and (3). Falling for "dumb money" solutions that give your hard-earned cash over to hyperactive brokers and investment investors. The most important part of this book is chapter 36 where Daniel ... full review

"Another fabulous read by Mary Alice Monroe!" - by Susan S Beebe
Like many others, I have read everything Mary Alice has ever written. My first was The Beach House,and from there I was hooked! This book ends the series, but it is certainly a stand alone read as well.. For beach people, beach conservationists, bird enthusiasts, lovers of Charleston and the surrounding beach areas, it is so on point. You can easily relate to the characters and their issues, Mary Alice is an amazing storyteller. From page one you will feel like you are on Isle of Palms living the story. Once you finish this I guarantee you will be a fan and go find all of her books.

This is the latest in a series of the “HBR 10 Must Read” anthologies that are published annually in autumn. Each consists of ten articles plus a “bonus” article, all previously published in Harvard Business Review. The contents are selected by HBR editors. In the Note that introduces the 2018 edition, they say this: “Every year, as we build each issue of Harvard Business Review, we examine the most important challenges facing business leaders today…The standout articles of the year collected here, for example, explain emerging phenomena like blockchain, dataviz literacy, and algorithms in practical terms. They also offer new perspectives on long-term issues such as boosting employee engagement, increasing diversity, and fixing the U.S. health care system. We showcase these and other critical themes highlighted by our authors from the past year [or so] of Harvard Business Review in this volume.”

"Fun stories" - by Amazon User (Colorado)
My kids(ages 8 & 11) have had this book since they were toddlers, and still like to look at it and read the stories. The stories are short and funny, and will engage new readers. It's one of my favorite Richard Scarry books, and I give it as a gift to 3-5 year-olds often.
