Hello Again,

I’m sorry I missed the February Splash. I made a trip to Minnesota/Wisconsin for family affairs. While there, I, of course, experienced cold and snow and slush and salt, but also beautiful night skies with a romantic moon, deer browsing under the birdfeeders, wonderful dinners, and, best of all, meeting two new great-grandbabies!

Cuddling up in front of a fire with a mystery is always desirable! An Ambush Of Widows, by Jeff Abbott, fit the bill perfectly. Did you know that a group of widows is called an ambush? Now, guys, quit snickering! This psychological suspenseful novel kept my attention most nights, and Goodreads gives it a four-star review, and I agree.

You think your husband is in New York City on a business trip, but when you answer a cell phone call from him and it’s a stranger’s voice telling you, “Your husband has been killed in Austin, Texas … he was shot,” and the phone is dead, what do you do? Next is the alliance of two widows to find their husbands’ killer. Dear Readers: This book is definitely worth your time.
