Book Review: The Brass Bed by Jennifer Stevenson

The Brass Bed  by Jennifer Stevenson is by far the best -most fun read of this whole year!! Which is saying alot as I have read several 5 cans Pepsi (my highest rating)but this beats 'em all-hands down.
Jewel is working in the crappy department of writing tickets for Policy breakers, her boss-Ed also happens to be her best friend's husband. Well, Ed and Nina are having marital issues. So Nina starts seeing a sex therapist, who charges her $300/hour to take a nap on "The Brass Bed". Ok, from here I cannot and will not say another peep, but if you have a good sense of humor, and like sex/romance/magic this is a must read- and I am awarding this one my FAVORITE READ OF THE YEAR 2016!!

This is also a new to me author, and I can't wait to see Jewel in  The Velvet Chair and The Bearskin Rug!!

5 CANS-MUST READ.

Dead Man's Folly by Agatha Christie

Dead Man's Folly by Agatha Christie
I love Agatha, her style is just so classic. Hercule Poirot is the World's Greatest Detective-with the most unique mustache...
He is asked to assist in a fete at this English estate by a lady author who is staging a murder mystery for the guests to figure out and Mr. Poirot is supposed to hand out the prizes,as he is very well known.Naturally things don't according to plan. But I must say I had absolutely no idea how this was going to end -this plot is excellent with the twist right where you least expect it!! Must read/especially for the month of October-if , of course you like a good mystery!!
5 Cans!!

REVIEW:THE GHOST BY DANIELLE STEELE

Title: The Ghost, Author: Danielle Steel

This is by far one of my favorites, it is so well written and engrossing that I just have to write a glowing post.

It starts off with Charlie a 40+architect living in London with his wife of 9 yrs, being happy and visiting all kinds of terrific places. Meanwhile, his wife decides to inform him that she's leaving him for another man, and from here on you just cannot stop reading. I don't like giving spoilers but I love it once Charlie meets Gladys (not what you would think!!) From here believe me you won't put it down. I have been reading Danielle Steele recently, and I just love her class and elegance in her writing. 

This is definitely a 5 Cans of Pepsi-and one of my all time favorites. I wish to thank Ms. Steele for her exceptional storytelling and such elegance in her writing. I have been collecting her books for the past month and once I have the full set I will be very happy!!

Thanks for reading and stay cool...

THE BEST BASIC BLOGGER'S BUYER'S BIN!! NEW!

I  am starting a new thing for my blog called The BBB's Buyer Bin. This is going to be like classifieds. Posts every Sunday. 

What it is: A place to buy, sell or trade with others. All items must be non-breakable,and not prohibited by law.
I will have a theme -such as books- for each weeks post. 

For instance, I have one Funko Pop for sale, I want to buy Book two of the Game of Thrones series and I will trade (whatever). 

Rules:
$1.00 to post for all three categories-$.50c for only 1 listing (example-you have something for sale). I must charge a small fee as it is going to be time consuming, and I am going to make sure everyone gets what they are asking for.

To make a listing, email me your list and send payment to my paypal-Downie4959@gmail.com. This Sunday is the first post-so please have all lists sent by noon Saturday. I am hoping we can all have fun and get all kinds of goodies reasonably priced.
If for some reason,you do not receive your item. please email me.

I really hope everyone will join the fun!!
