Wolf Pack by C. J. Box, a book review

This is a quick easy read that keeps us abreast of the Picket family and the lawless traveling through Saddlestring, WY. The protagonist, Joe Pickett, is a regular guy with a pretty wife who find themselves perched on the edge of an empty nest, their three grown daughters out or nearly out of the house. There's no discontent in the life Joe leads as a Wyoming Game Warden, but there's always an overflow of drama. Propelled by honesty, loyalty to the duties of the job, and doing what's right, fate plunks Picket down into the crosshairs of the FBI, a group in the witness protection program, and a gruesome gang dubbed the Wolf Pack. Joe is no superhero and in this eighteenth book in the series, he is less resilient than when we first met him. So it must be asked, how long can his body handle the hard scrapes, bullet wounds, and stark Wyoming weather before something gives? I wonder. Source: Library loan.

Hi:  Wondered if you would be interesting (sic) in joining me for a book discussion.  2 dates are March 17th and April 28th.  Both are Sundays and time is 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm.  Place Pomeroy Cellars.  Cost $5.00 for nipples and not sure about wine cost. March 17th book is My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferente April 28th book is Lost Girls of Paris by Pam Jenoff Both books available at Amazon under $10 for paperback. If you are interested I could order a book for you if you’d like.  No shipping as I have Prime.  Think it might be fun “girlie” thing to do.  Ferente book is 1st in series of 4 books and I think they are making a series out of it for HBO.  Could be wrong about network. Mom February 21, 2019 February 22, 2019 Mom, I'm interested. But I would like to trade the nipples for nibbles, if possible. Carol February 22, 2019 I'm in. I agree I'd prefer to have nibbles. 😇😇 Debbie You may also enjoy:   How I got here and why it matters

How I got here and why it matters by Carol Doane

When I learned to write complete sentences I had one goal, to write a book. Somewhere in the youthful march through grade school, in some secret place long forgotten, is the book I started. I was seven-years old. I wrote prose, neatly in pencil, on blue lined notebook paper and added tiny illustrations at the top of my chapters. I drew my brother's birthday, bunny cake that celebrated his arrival at the terrible twos with frosting smeared onto his nose by my mother before she took his picture — with a film camera. I wrote about my uncle's visit from the distant country of Texas. I wrote about the way the world hurt and how small I felt. As I raced through school and ploughed down the writing path, I wrote stories and essays that high school teachers returned, scratched with red grammar corrections and tantalizing notes, such as, "This would make a good book." When I graduated college, my reward was to take a break, stop writing, and read what I wanted to

The Kommandant's Girl by Pam Jenoff, a book review

Once I got into this book I couldn't put it down. As I began, it plucked at me, though, reminding me that this was a first novel as certain ideas fit too perfectly. Mid-journey, it gathered up fully as the writing swelled and the author stoked the fire of the story. While the final chapters felt slightly contrived as characters reconnected, tension rose, fates sealed, and the living left standing had no other option than to move forward. A solid story, characters you care about and hope the best for. Book : The Kommandant's Girl  by Pam Jenoff Source: Purchase.
