THE SCAM A Fox and O’Hare Novel – Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg – Random House publishing Group, Ballantine, Bantam Mystery and Thrillers. Publishing date: September 15, 2015.

I am a blogger and reviewer. I was privileged to read this book as a professional reviewer on Net Galley. I received a copy to read through the Net galley program in exchange for an honest and unbiased review which I am happy to share now.

I would give this book Five Stars because I consider it high impact entertainment from beginning to end.

Because I wanted to share my interest in this book with my friends, I am posting a review on several of my blog sites

Kate O’Hare is a woman who is comfortable in her own skin and in her profession until she is drawn into a complicated venture with a man she doesn’t trust. She is an FBI agent, and he is a man who is possibly a genius at going the other way and getting others to run after him. She begins to do this, and their escapades are nothing short of delightful.
Kate is drawn into a rocky relationship which is complex and interesting throughout.
Kate considers her own thoughts of Nick at one point: “Kate squelched a grimace. It was nice to know he cared enough to risk his own safety, but it was frightening to think of Nick bumbling through the forest. Especially since her dad probably had it bobby-trapped.”

 This book is described as the fourth book in the fast-paced, action-packed Fox and O’Hare series from Janet Evanovich No. 1 bestselling author of the blockbuster Stephanie Plum novels, and Lee Goldberg, bestselling author of the Monk series.

This is a Serious Book and Worth Reading Many Times: a Book Review



Posted by Anna Patterson. Writer, Journalist, Book Reviewer

BLACK EARTH – Historical, nonfiction by Timothy Snyder.
I would like to say of this book:
Thoroughly Documented
A Workable Time-Piece to connect to for that period of War
In this book the evolution of Adolph Hitler’s plan came together in the war fares scattered across much of the world. It was after all; in Hitler’s opinion part of a final solution of determining what he had said was the natural animal fight for supremacy and dominance in their species. For Hitler, as explained in this sweeping text of that era and that war, this is described clearly and in details which grasp the reader with their very magnitude. 
     In this book, the author quotes Hitler’s reason to want to invade the Ukraine as he wanted their very fertile land and that of their neighbors, the Russians, Belarusias and the Poles. He goes on to say, Hitler saw this as a quite simple logic and plan so that his own people would see that “no one is able to starve us again!”
It tells of Hitler leaving prison in 1924 and the author describes him as “a much cannier politician then years after his failed putscht. The book goes on towards the Year 1934 when Hitler’s title became “Fuhrer” and even “Reich Chancellor.”
Hitler began developing “a Nazi Party created upon the assumption of endless racial conflict with the traditional state asserting the right to control and limit violence.”
With his vision clearly forming into reality before his very eyes, Hitler established the first concentration camp that at Dachau in 1933, “as a place where his National Socialist Party could punish people.”
Over and over to carry the reader forward dramatically in exploring these complex issues, a further visual aid is a series of maps.  These surely unique maps lead the reader into an understanding of the historical piece of literature with a smooth entwined blending of word imagery and visual map display.
I would give this book Five Stars for more reasons than one, but it is a very good read and well thought out one.
Publication date is September 8, 2015 by Crown Publishing, of Tim Duggan Books, in the History, Nonfiction adult category. 

This book is very easy reading of an intriguing, but difficult subject with such depth of thought that it can be at times dazzling to see it captured so vividly. I also found the research and resources placed at the end of the book informative also, with its arrangement though detailed, nonetheless, furnished in an easy to follow manner. The work which is involved in this monumental task is awe-inspiring also.
