Lethal by Sandra Brown

LethalReviewed by Nancy Eaton

Honor Gillette’s four-year-old daughter informs her that a sick man is in lying in their front yard. When Honor looks out the window and sees the man, she runs out to help him. When she saw his face, she was shocked. She recognized him as Lee Coburn, the man who is accused of killing seven people the night before. Coburn has a gun and promises he will not hurt Honor or her daughter if they do as they are told.

Honor’s late husband Eddie, who was a police officer, died in an accident. Coburn told Honor that Eddie had something valuable and he needed to find it. He proceeded to tell her that she and her daughter are in a great deal of danger if what he is looking for falls into the hands of The Bookkeeper, a well-known crime boss. What is this item Coburn is hoping to find? Honor has no idea as to what Eddie could have been hiding. Coburn searches the house but could not find what he is looking for. He also wants to clear his name.

As time goes on, more and more bodies start to show up and Honor does not know who to trust. Is Coburn really the bad guy? Was her husband doing something wrong? Can she trust her father-in-law or is he also involved in something dirty?

Here Comes Trouble by Michael Moore

Here Comes TroubleReviewed by Nancy Eaton

When I started to read Here Comes Trouble, I did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised!

Here Comes Trouble is sort of a memoir about Michael Moore’s early life up to his thirties. Why do I say “sort of a memoir”? Michael Moore makes this statement in the foreword of the book. “This is a book of short stories based on events that took place in the early years of my life. Many of the names and circumstances have been changed to protect the innocent, and sometimes the guilty”. The book consists of several short stories about things that have happened to him during these years. Some of them will make you laugh and others will bring tears to your eyes.

I don’t want to go into detail about the stories because it would spoil it for others who read this book. I will tell you that some of my favorites from the book are: A Blessing, Getaway Car and A Public Education.
