Book Review: We All Stir The Pot To End Hunger! by Misty Lee Coolidge with Bobbie Bensur

We All Stir The Pot To End Hunger! by Misty Lee Coolidge with Bobbie Bensur is a children's picture book set in a food pantry.  It's located in an unknown city and talks about how people contribute to food pantry . . . anything and everything from donating food to volunteering time. I was thrilled when I was approved by NetGalley and Paw Prints Publishing to receive this book for free in exchange for my honest review.  Originally expected to be published on November 15 of this year, We All Stir The Pot To End Hunger! by Misty Lee Coolidge with Bobbie Bensur came out November 29, 2022. There were some great life lessons in We All Stir The Pot To End Hunger! told in a way that children could understand.  Don't worry, it's not sanctimonious in the least bit.  The illustrations were amazing as well.  This is the perfect book to help children realize that there are families that don't have enough to eat. I love the fact that some of the proceeds from the book will go t

Book Review: Murder On The Class Trip (Maya and Sandra Mystery, #3) by Lee Hollis

book review murder on the class trip lee hollis

Murder on the Class Trip (Maya and Sandra Mystery, #3) by Lee Hollis opens in Portland, Maine where Maya Kendrick and Sandra Wallage are enlisted by their kid's teacher to chaperone the class trip to Washington, D.C.  When the intern for Sandra's soon to be ex-husband Stephen turns up dead in the senator's apartment, the moms struggle to juggle their chaperoning responsibilities and solving the murder to acquit Senator Stephen Wallage.

First and foremost, thank you to NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Murder on the Class Trip (Maya and Sandra Mystery, #3) by Lee Hollis.  I was delighted to receive this book for free in exchange for my honest review.  I was intrigued by the synopsis of Murder on the Class Trip by Lee Hollis because politics intrigue me, and I enjoyed visiting Washington, D.C. several years ago, so I was excited to receive an ARC of this book.

This novel isn't the first book I've read by this author, and it certainly won't be the last.  Lee Hollis is a talented storyteller that weaves a fun and exciting read that is hard to put down.  I read Murder on the Class Trip over the course of two days in July 2022 and was still thinking about it days later.

At first, I found the book to be a little slow, but once I got a few pages into the story, I was hooked and found myself completely absorbed.  It was like I was watching a movie in my head.  Some of the things I enjoyed about Murder on the Class Trip was that there wasn't any gore or cussing.  Not that I'm bothered by that, but sometimes, I just need a book that isn't so intense, and this book fit the ticket perfectly.  I loved the characterizations of all the characters and found myself connecting to both Maya and Sandra.  Although, I did figure out who the killer was, I loved the fact that there were some red herrings that made me doubt myself.  I also didn't figure out who helped frame Senator Wallage, so that was a surprise to me.

I thoroughly enjoyed Murder on the Class Trip by Lee Hollis and gave it 4 out of 5 stars.  I plan on reading the first two books in the series.
