Dead Write - Sheila Lowe, Author

Dead Write - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



'His choice of pen had already told Claudia something about him. Even before she began to analyze the handwriting, she knew that he cared about the way things looked, that he had an eye for color and texture. And it was unnecessary for her to read the text of what he had written to understand what the symbolism meant in terms of the movement of the writing across the… Continue

Memories are Precious - Alzheimer's Journey: Ruth's Story - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



'Alzheimer's is a deadly disease and does not discriminate. It is not a disease of the poor, the rich, the famous or the indigent. It is a disease that anyone can get at any time. It knows no boundaries and it does not care whether you are white or black or of any other race, religion or creed.'



Imagine going to… Continue

Jodi's Journey - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



"Your anger is like a dirty quilt, smothering you, it's time to get out from under it and get on with the living again, girl," the old man muttered with sad regret, as he tried uselessly to move something other than his head against the creaking bunk. "The wars… Continue

The House of the Sphinx - Sarah Wisseman, Author



The House of the Sphinx - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



'Two weeks ago, when Abdul had sniffed his uncle's tobacco, he'd discovered a small, narrow object inside. His agile fingers had quickly untied the string and loosened the brown paper to reveal a cardboard tube that was labeled in a foreign script. Inside, he found a small glass ampule, pointed at one end. It was terribly fragile; the slight pressure… Continue

Future Imperfect Books - Crucifying Angel - P. I. Barrington, Author

Crucifying Angel - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



'The heat sent mirage waves up from the ground, making the air in the distance wiggly and unfocused. Payce eyed the endless highway that ran through the desert toward the city the cops liked to call The Adult Disneyland and sped the unmarked car toward the first homicide scene of the day. Gavin sat silently in the passenger seat taking in the long highway and the… Continue

Murders Do Not Come by Accident - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



'She had just started to walk by a tightly clumped set of evergreens, when all of a sudden she felt a large heat searing pressure on her chest. She fell backwards, dumbfounded. She glanced down at her chest and observed a large set of deer antlers had penetrated her chest and lungs. Her last thoughts before she lost consciousness were why would a… Continue

Fast Track - John DeDakis, Author

Fast Track - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



'I prefer to see the world not in blacks, whites and grays, but in rainbow colors. The contrasts can be stark, and there can still be room for individual expression, but there are boundaries, too. Choosing the right colors for the painting of your life can be an adventure.'.... But what if the painting gets messed up?... Color over it. Try something new. Don't just let… Continue

Return to Whittakerville - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



"I lie here thinking of what could have happened to her with that lunatic. I wonder if Jebediah will ever leave us in peace? The man has been dead for twenty years but still he haunts me."... "I keep thinking about those years long ago when Martha's father sent you and I to find her in the wild Wyoming territory. Now it is as if history is repeating itself,… Continue

Knowing the Struggle is Over! - K. M. Johnson, Author

Knowing the Struggle is Over! - Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat



K. M. Johnson is a remarkable woman. She has been in the U. S. Army for 12 years. She served her first four years on active duty, the other eight in the Reserves. She recently completed her 12 month tour in Iraq. Whether you are man or woman, that's impressive to me. The hardships she has gone through in life and her way of handling life's battles has… Continue
