Featured Book: Seven Days to Goodbye by Sheri S. Levy

23242326After Trina’s beloved dog dies, she swears she’ll never get another one. But then she learns about service dogs, and realizes that if she becomes a Puppy Raiser, she could train puppy after puppy and never worry about them dying. But like all great ideas, this one has a serious flaw: her first service puppy must be returned to his kennel at the end of their week-long summer vacation… and saying goodbye to Sydney is going to be much tougher than she ever imagined.

Trina’s last week with Sydney is made that much harder by her newly strained friendship with her best friend, Sarah, who’s become so over-the-top boy crazy that she’s almost like a stranger. Sarah is determined to have them hang out with every boy at the beach, but when a boy named Chase takes an interest in Sydney and Trina, it puts an even bigger strain on the friendship.

A Movable Marriage: A Memoir by Tricia Pimental

cover

ebq5st

In this honest and engaging memoir, Tricia Pimental recounts her adventurous travels both in the States and abroad, as she and her husband move from home to home- battling palmetto bugs in Florida, running a high-end cafe in Nevada, dodging bats in a cabin in New Hampshire …and so much more.

With a willing and humorous attitude, Tricia makes the most of her husband’s nomadic inclinations by experiencing the character and charm each location has to offer and making friends wherever they go- yet all the while longing for a place to finally put down roots.

Along the way she faces a host of challenges, unexpected surprises, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, like appearing on a popular tv game show and traveling on the famed Orient Express.

Featured Book: Critters of Cedar Hill: A Collection of Stories by Marta Kastner, Anne Weede

27434177In her book, Critters of Cedar Hill: A Collection of Stories, author Marta Kastner regales readers with stories of the creatures that make Cedar Hill their home. The stories are accompanied by whimsical pen and ink illustrations by artist Anne Weede.

Cedar Hill, both a house and a place, is a historic old farm on a modest hill spotted with cedars. All told it is about fifty acres of pasture and garden—enough space for all kinds of critters to call home. The largest and most visible creatures are the cows. The smallest are the many bugs and assorted insects. In between are animals of all sorts—from birds, squirrels, groundhogs and skunks to snakes, frogs, mice and deer. However, of all the creatures, the family dogs get most of the attention because they are constantly underfoot.

As you read these stories of the critters of Cedar Hill, Marta Kastner’s dry wit and descriptive style will have you taking a much closer look at the critters in and around your home, and you may recall stories of your own. Your dog may have battled with a skunk. Or you may have found a groundhog in a tree. Or perhaps a large black snake appeared in your kitchen one day. These stories, and more, will entertain you as you read this book.
