Book Review: Them Bones

Summary

Sarah was going to lose her family home. So when she was offered a fee to do some investigating on a “dognapping”, she agreed. It was going to be a simple job. However, the more she investigated, the more she uncovered.

Sifting through all the gossip and tales, this all led up to a very interesting murder investigation. Getting close to the wealthy and good looking folks of the neighbourhood could be distracting….

Conclusion

I enjoyed the description of the characters. They were written to be very lively. Sarah was definitely a brave lady to go investigating in unfamiliar territory.

Movie Review: Blood Red Sky

Summary

A mom and her son was onboard a plane to a medical facility to receive treatment for her special condition. Suddenly, the terrorists hijacked the plane and began killing passengers. They even forced two passengers who fitted the stereotypical Islamic extremist profile to read a terrorist statement. The terrorists had planned to crash the plane after jumping off.

What they didn’t prepare for was that some of passengers were determined to fight back…. One even rose from the dead or did she?

Conclusion

This was an interesting concept and storyline. I liked how the characters worked together and grew to trust each other so quickly. A mother’s love and an extremely brave boy tied it all together.

Movie Review: Wrath Of Man

Image Courtesy of IMDb

Summary

A newly hired security guard “H” was able to take down six robbers during his first job on the cash truck. Everyone was surprised and very impressed. His supervisor, on the other hand, had an odd feeling about this “hero” on the team. The owner, however, wanted to promote “H” to keep the morals high.

Soon, they would discover that this “hero” actually had a hidden agenda….

Conclusion

Although I expected a typical action movie featuring Jason Statham, I enjoyed the planning and the steps that led to the heist scenes.

Photo Of The Day: Balance

Life goes on

And on

In a spiral

Or in a

Straight line

It can be

Unpredictable

But

Balance is

The key.

Photo Of The Day: Candy In The Cove

This tiny little candy shop was hidden at the side of another business building. The sandwich board attracted my attention by saying that it was the smallest candy shop in the world!

So I went in and it was very small indeed!

The shop was a tiny little room that was filled from top to bottom with all sorts of candy. There were some surprise bags that I bought on my way out. I liked the surprise aspect of it.

So if you ever plan to visit Bowen Island, look for this cute shop!
