Taking Flight
 
For the past two days, I immersed myself in the pages of Solo Vietnam by Jeanette Vaughan. In this, her second novel, a sequel to Flying Solo (reviewed here in July 2012) in which we are introduced to an amazingly courageous woman, Nora Jean Broussard once again takes to the skies as a dust cropper by day and a torch singer by night. She find herself managing a USO canteen in South Vietnam, hoping to find her former lover. This good, solid historical novel about loves lost and regained and living life to the fullest is steeped in the morass of the Vietnam War era, complete with action and adventure that will satisfy any mature reader.

Solo Vietnam at www.authorexposure.com.

Cracked Eggs
 
Sometimes you can both like and dislike like a novel. You can enjoy the writing style and perhaps the message, but find the plotline annoying and/or the characters irritating. This rarely happens to me, since I've enjoyed most of the books I've read lately--okay, I admit, there might have been one or two really bad klunkers. But while I liked the author’s style, I was somewhat disappointed in the overall presentation of Dear Lucy: A Novel by Julie Sarkissian.

Please follow this link to www.authorexposure.com to read my review. I leave it up to you to decide you whether you're interested enough to put this peculiar book on your reading list.
