Book Review: Spinning by Michael Baron


Dylan Hunter was living it up in New York City, with a great job in a public relations firm and a new, sexy woman in his bed just about every weekend. His only responsibility was making his clients and his boss happy. He was doing great keeping all his proverbial plates spinning around and around. Until Diane walked back into his life with her three-year-old daughter, Spring. Soon Dylan finds himself skipping the late nights at the bar to spend quiet time at home. His priorities begin to change and he starts to see a different path in his future.

In Spinning, Michael Baron brings us into Dylan's heart and mind as he struggles to keep all the plates spinning. When he suddenly finds himself fulfilling the role of Spring's sole caregiver, things start to slip. How can he hold on to his job, his friends, his lifestyle, while caring for a little girl on his own? What is really important to him? Will he be able to keep all the plates spinning or will something have to drop?

Once again, Michael Baron has developed characters with such depth that I feel like I know them. And he has created relationships that are realistic and heartwarming. If you're looking for a touching story of love and transformation, I highly recommend Spinning.

My Rating: 4/5

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
