I just finished reading Samantha Sotto's first novel "Before Ever After". Part mystery, part romance and part historical adventure, this book was so enjoyable that I finished it in one day. I can't wait for Ms. Sotto's next book.
I just finished Vanessa Diffenbaugh's book The Language Of Flowers last night. I didn't think I was going to like it because I'm not a fan of writers who alternate past and present with each chapter but once I started reading the book I was hooked. The Language Of Flowers is about second chances and love. You find yourself rooting for Victoria (the title character) through out the book and hoping that she finds a way to achieve the love she so dearly needs. For a first time author I think Vanessa Diffenbaugh did a great jot and I'm looking forward to reading her next book.

This book is listed as a natural remedies mystery. Unfortunately it was more natural remedies than it was mystery.I hate to give a book a bad review because I know how hard it is to write a good mystery but this book has missed the mark.I love reading mysteries that have a theme(ex: scrapbooking, plants, tea, etc) but I want the mystery to be front and center and the theme to be secondary.If you are interested or curious about natural remedies than this is the book for you. If you are looking for a good mystery than I would pass on this book.
