Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

Daddy’s Little Girl by Mary Higgins Clark

Ms. Clark did an excellent job in showing how readily love ones are to accept and project blame amidst a tragedy.   A young woman suffers an untimely demise.  Her demise not only ends her life but negatively impacts those around her.  Ellie, the sister, feels she should have done more.  Andrea’s parents both feel the same.  The loss of a child provides such trauma that all around it are impacted.

Frankly I thought the main protagonist, Ellie, was a flaming idiot on more than one occasion in the book.   However stirring emotion is something every author hopes to provoke so Clark did well.  

The human side of the story, not just the plot is a hallmark of Ms. Clark.   Her books never fail to delve into the motivations of her characters.

I recommend.


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER 
have a bearing on my recommendations.
