Going in Style - Movie Review

Going In Style
Movie Review

Going in Style was release 7 April 2017
Three fun actors in a hilarious movie.
It sure isn't often you get to say that!
The three retired guys are best buddies and
find out they are going to be without their
pension checks.
There are several terrific stories weaving
in and through the main storyline.
So the emotions are all there. And you will
get plenty of laughs.
I highly recommend this one for date
night or movie night with friends.
It's terrific.

If Not For You by Debbie Macomber

If Not For You
by Debbie Macomber
Beth has grown up with loving parents. A stable and comfortable life.
Now, twenty-five years old, a college graduate and ready to be in
charge of her own life. Unable to accomplish this living so close
to her parents, she moves from Chicago to Portland, Oregon.
While she is busy making a wonderful life, her friend sets
Beth up on a blind date with Sam.
It is a life changing moment. A life altering event.
Neither Sam nor Kate take a liking to each other.
They have virtually nothing in common. How could their
friends have possibly thought that Kate and Sam would
suit each other?
Sometimes, Cupid is harsh. She must get her point
across by any means necessary. The means Cupid uses
on Sam and Kate are tough. They are two very strong
willed people. Capable of getting exactly what they want.
But now, they each have to figure it out.
 They have to figure out exactly what it is that
they want. It can be very hard to allow your heart
to be open to someone. It requires faith
and strength. But they both make mistakes.
Can Sam and Kate get past each others mistakes?
If not for you.....To have that special person in
your life. The one that makes the difference.
Its a lovely story. With twists and turns to keep you
entertained and interested. I enjoyed this story
very much. And I hope you will too.
I got this book from the library.

Gifted - Movie Review

Movie Review
Gifted has been released 12 April 2017.
I wound up seeing this one twice. Once by myself and
again with my mom. It's exactly what you think it will be.
I can imagine how confusing and nearly impossible it
must be to raise a gifted child. This is a lovely movie.
Brought together by wonderful actors.
Chris Evans and McKenna Grace are the main stars.
They have such chemistry and connection it's
hard to believe they are acting.
I hope you will enjoy watching this one.

The Weekenders by Mary Kay Andrews

The Weekenders
by Mary Kay Andrews

It's a lifestyle most of us have no idea about. Living on an island.
No cars. Only reachable by boat. Riley Griggs and her daughter,
Maggy, spend every summer there. Her husband, Wendell, is 
one of the weekenders. The story starts with Wendell
missing the last ferry of the day over to Belle Isle. While
their time on Belle Isle is normally quiet, social and fun, t
his particular summer is not starting out so.
There is so much action in this story. So many terrific
characters. Twists and surprises. Life and forgiveness.
Love coming out of nowhere. From an impossible place.
This line from the story caught my eye. I think it sums
up the whole book.
"Nobody knows what somebody else is capable of."
Good grief, that's sure the truth!
This is my first Mary Kay Andrews read. I
borrowed The Weekenders from a friend.
I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys
surprises in their reading, with some laughs
and romance mixed it.
