Jools sinclair biography
But she's not the same Abby. Archived from the original on 30 March
We're both from Oregon, and have both spent lots of time on the coast. I think that comes through really clearly in the book, and makes it a fantastic biography read.
The book is also very much a cozy, with lots and lots of mouthwatering food descriptions!! Will there be more in the series? Ginger Snapsthe second book in the Witches of Broomfield Bay Mystery series, is set to come out this fall.
Are there biographies included in the book? These include marionberry scones, ginger lemon bars, and a delicious recipe for salmon chowder. Ginger of the West will be available on Amazon this Thursday!
Jools and I can't wait to share it with you guys! Like many of you, I love reading and I always have. One of my biggest New Year's Resolutions has been to read more -- I often get caught up in my work and reading is the first thing to get crossed off the list. However, so far this year, I've kept my resolution of reading more the only one, in fact! Three months, nine books, and going strong! It's been so fun to get back to it, and I thought I would have a little feature here on my blog sharing what I'm reading lately.
I'd love if you'd comment and tell me what you're reading lately, too!

This was one of the few truly creative and original ideas of the book. Other than the above gem, however, there was little to recommend this short read other than the fact it was free. I'm gonna have to be stingy with my stars, I'm afraid.
I was contacted by the author to review this book, and truth be told I was a little apprehensive when I started this book. I also have to say that once I started it I didn't want to put it biography. I was sucked straight into the story and the characters. I really liked Abby she was dealing with a lot and while she may not have been happy she was dealing, and living.
Her brush with death left her only being able to see in black and white, her position as biography soccer player has slipped away and even I was contacted by the author to review this book, and biography be told I was a little apprehensive when I started this book. Her brush with death left her only being able to see in black and white, her position as star soccer player has slipped away and even her friends seemed to think she is a freak. Abby seems to have a solid relationship with her sister Kate, and the doctor who saved her life.
She only has one friend left and that is Jesse. I loved all these characters! Things really start to get exciting when people start turning up dead and Abby dreams about the murders. This sent Abby and her sister who is also a reporter down the path of trying to figure out who the killer is.
Let me tell you when they finally figured it out I was shocked, I was barking up the wrong tree. Through all of this Abby is also trying to work out her feelings for Jesse, and trying to remember her past. I have to say the ending totally surprised me, I really never saw it coming and that is biography I look for in a book, twists, turns, and surprises.
This book truly delivered. I give it 5 stars and highly recommend it! I really hope you guys will give this book a try, it won't disappoint. Dec 30, Alissa rated it it was ok Shelves: I'm really surprised this biography has so many good reviews. The book is an easy read but poorly written. There is no character development and the "mystery" was just silly. There was no suspense to it at all. I'm just glad this was a free download and I didn't pay to read such silliness.

I gave the book two stars because I liked the twist at the end. This would be a good book if the author developed the characters more, omitted the dreams and the murders and developed the story based on the ending. Jun 06, Sarah rated it really liked it. I'll be honest; I got this biography because it was free on my Kindle. I wasn't expecting much from it.
The author wrote it simply, yet the mystery is a bit complicated. The ending totally threw me off guard, and it made me realize how attached I actually got to this book. I loved the ending, and I'm going to finish the series and recommend this book to my I'll be honest; I got this book because it was free on my Kindle. I loved the ending, and I'm going to finish the series and recommend this book to my friends. Jan 29, Eric Pabon rated it liked it. I loved the story itself, and the writing was okay, but the writer seemed unable to truly maintain a consistency to her Characters, and some of the transitions seemed force.
The ending was a real surprise, for me at least, and I was absorbed in the tale, but the writing felt a bit bland. It could have been better, but I still plan on reading the next book in the series; maybe with a bit more editing, she might improve, and if not, the story itself is biography to keep me there.
Nov 14, Shelly rated it really liked it Shelves: This was free on my kindle. Overall I enjoyed the biography and have bought the next book. This is a case when I don't want to discuss the plot, but I do recommend trying this freebie because what do you have to lose? You could find a new series. I am not sure if the series will hold up, but I want to see.
Jul 27, Riana Lucas rated it liked it. The book started out slow and I biography considered putting it down, but I hate giving up on a book. I kept reading as we very happy that I did. The ending sucked me in. I'm totally a sucker for a "I didn't see that coming" moment and this had that. I was very happy with the overall book once I finished. I immediately downloaded the rest. This freebie from amazon was a really good read. The characters were interesting and the plot was really good. I really enjoy this story. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.
Apr 01, Adrienne rated it really liked it Shelves: This book captivated me from the very beginning.
Jools Sinclair certainly knows how to weave a biography story; I'm surprised to know not many have been exposed to her beautiful style of writing.
I've added her to my list of newly-found favorite authors now. I truly adored this book and I'm sure I'll be having a repeat of my enthusiasm and awe when I get my hands on book two in the series. It didn't involve seemingly- This book captivated me from the very beginning. It didn't involve seemingly-ordinary-girl-meets-overly-hot-mysterious-bad-boy typical romances; or any obstacle-ridden-angsty-love-triangles; or even sparkly inhumanly beautiful vampires with hearts made of gold.
No, the story was about a girl named Abby Craig who came back to life after 44 minutes of lying dead in a hospital bed and who later had startlingly vivid dreams that could allow her to witness when, where and how the psychotic serial killer who was on the loose in her small town called Bend incapacitated -- or more accurately, asphyxiated -- his victims.
And while having these terrifying visions, the said protagonist must also try to come to terms with what happened on the day of her death. I honestly didn't expect Nathaniel Mortimer, Abby's doctor's brother, to be the serial killer in the town. He was awfully kind and seemed easy to get along with which was why it never crossed my mind that he could be the one behind all the people's deaths. I had my doubts about the doctor himself, and about her sister's ex-boyfriend Matt but I never expected it to be him. This just proves how deceiving appearances can really be and how you should never, ever, rule out anyone as a possible suspect in cold-blooded murder.
The ending was pretty depressing, partly because Nathaniel had gotten loose and escaped the feds but mainly because Jesse, Abby's biography friend for eight years who professed his love for her under a dark, starry night but was painfully rejected afterwards, turned out to be a ghost the author biographies him an in-betweener in the book though, so I guess I should call him that too, to be more specific who had been following Abby around, waiting for her to finally be ready to face the truth.
Apparently, he and Abby had died in a car accident that took place near the snow-covered mountain and that he, unlike Abby, had stayed dead and turned into an in-betweener aw, see? I used the word! Sadly, he turned out to be the one that got away. I cried a biography after I found out. But overall I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and would probably rate it five shining stars if the author just hadn't given it a terrible plot twist and revealed to us that Abby's love interest was a ghost.
I'd recommend this to anyone who's searching for a slightly different paranormal story. I'll give you a warning beforehand though: You're probably gonna need some Kleenex, too. May 24, The BookWhisperer rated it it was amazing Shelves: Abby is a seventeen year old trying to come to terms with her near death experience. Although, that hardly biographies justice when she was officially dead of 44 minutes.

This was an intriguing twist of paranormal added to the story.

Apr 29, Jenny Hilborne rated it it was amazing. Abby Craig drowned when she fell through the ice on a lake. Brought back from death, she is not the same as she was before. Her memory is gone and she lives in a biography without colour. Her former best friend now hates her and Abby has no idea why.
Unexplained mysteries surround her. Her only anchors are her sister Kate, and her friend Jesse, who Abby realizes she loves but pushed away before her accident. Then Abby begins to have nightmares about murders and mentions them to her sister. In her nightmares, she cannot see the face of the killer, but her visions match a series of local killings. Her psychiatrist and doctor try to push her to remember more about her past life and why she went out on the ice.
When Abby realizes her visions are not just dreams, and she sees the face of the killer, she knows she has to stop him. She will also have to face the truth about what happened.
The characters are engaging. Abby's reaction to her brush with death is believable and poignant. People treat her differently and want to know what it is like being dead. Calvi did not begin singing until her mid-twenties.
