Blue by Danielle Steel

BlueBlue by Danielle Steel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It is always fun to get lost in a Danielle Steel novel and Blue was no different. Blue is the story of a grieving widow Ginny, who has been working as a humanitarian aid worker around the world for the past four years to escape from the pain of losing her husband and child. Ginny contemplates ending her life, when she notices a young homeless boy, Blue, and she decides to buy him a meal, leading both of them on a path to a brighter future together. At times the story is unrealistic, as many of her stories are, but Danielle Steel has the ability to write warm and engaging characters. The book deals with sobering issues of homelessness, sexual abuse and dealing with an aging parent, but it manages to retain a hopeful tone.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rich Amooi has given us another fun romantic comedy with "Mr. Crochety". The main character Roger is known around town for his grumpy disposition, but there is much more to his personality than meets the eye, and when he decides to sell his house he meets the very bright and cheerful Sally who agrees to be his real estate agent. Sally quickly learns that there is a softer side to Roger hiding just under the surface, and Roger finds himself surprised by his reaction to Sally's bright disposition. Sparks fly as Sally and Roger make house hunting very interesting.  Mr. Crochety is a fast-paced light-hearted comedy that is a perfect escape. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romantic comedies.
