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: The Hunter by Jennifer Herrera

The Hunter by Jennifer Herrera opens with NYPD Detective Leigh O'Donnell going back to her hometown of Copper Falls, Ohio to investigate three suspicious drownings in her hometown in hopes that it will help get her career back on track in New York City.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and G.P. Putnam's Sons for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of The Hunter by Jennifer Herrera. I was thrilled and honored to be one of the people chosen to review this book before publication.

At first, I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy The Hunter because it was a bit slow. However, after a few chapters, the pace of the storyline picked up, which made it hard for me to put down the book. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the twists and turns along with the red herrings.  One thing is for sure, I didn't see the ending coming, and that says a lot since I read a ton of books in the mystery, thriller, suspense, and horror genres.

The main character of Leigh was written well and is very relatable.  Her daughter was adorable.  Leigh's uncles were not very likable at first, but then, they grew on me, and I got to see how loving they turned out to be.  I had mixed feelings about Leigh's brother and soon to be ex-husband.  Other than that, I found most of the characters to be unlikable, but that's not a negative thing because there are always characters that the reader won't like.

Four out of five stars is what I gave The Hunter by Jennifer Herrera, and I hope that there is a sequel.  If you like mysteries, thrillers, and suspense, then I highly recommend you read this book . . . you won't be disappointed.
