Book Review: There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner

There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner is a children's book where kids look to make sure there are no dragons in the book.  The expected publication date is March 5, 2024.  I'd like to thank NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of this book. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed in this picture book.  I didn't care for the story, and it's not something I would likely read to a child.  I also didn't like that the story actually did have dragons in it only because I feel like a child might be upset that they were mislead.  However, I'm not the target audience, so kids may love it. On a positive note, I did enjoy the colorful illustrations.  It definitely gives the reader a lot to look at.  Three out of five stars is what I gave There Are No Dragons In This Book by Donna Lambo-Weidner.

Book Review: Suspicion by Joseph Finder

joseph finderJoseph Finder's Suspicion is a fast paced thriller based in Boston, Massachusetts where a struggling author's life seems to be falling apart. Danny's ex-wife has passed away, and his daughter's private school tuition is past due. No thanks to a fellow parent's generosity of loaning him a large sum of money via a wire transfer, the DEA takes a sudden interest in Danny.

Holy plot twists, Batman! Suspicion had one plot twist after another that made it hard to put down. However, some of them were a bit predictable, but it really didn't detract from the story line or the writing.

The only real flaw I saw with the book is that it is doubtful a person would accept a personal loan from another person they've never met before . . . even if it was the father of their child's best friend. It would make more sense if there was some sort of scholarship fund that was available, but then, Finder wouldn't have had that connection he needed between Danny and Tom to make the rest of the book actually work. 

If I didn't have to work the next day, I would've stayed up all night long to finish the book. I think Suspicion would translate well to the movie format and hope it becomes a reality one day.
