Book Review: Into the Crossfire by Cindy McDonald


Four years ago, police officer and former Navy SEAL Jack Haliday was undercover with a biker gang when his cover was blown. He got away, but so did the leader of the gang, Gunner. He's been waiting for Gunner to find him and exact his revenge ever since -- and he finally does. He rips Jack's family apart, and leaves Jack to pick up the pieces with his little girl, Lil.

Into the Crossfire by Cindy McDonald is a great thriller with an engaging storyline and interesting characters. It was a quick read and kept my attention throughout. The story follows Jack and his daughter, as well as the First Force team that cares for them and works with Jack to take down Gunner and his gang. But we also get to see the gang, mostly from the perspective of Gunner's girlfriend, so we get to see both sides of the story to some extent. This gives us the opportunity to get to know many unique characters.

I really enjoyed Into the Crossfire, particularly because of the characters. The storyline was complex enough to make it interesting, but also easy to follow. If you like thrillers that really focus on the characters, you should definitely check out Into the Crossfire. This is the first book in Cindy McDonald's new First Force series, and I will be looking forward to the next one.

My Rating: 5/5

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 …

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

April Reading Review

Where exactly did April go? I swear it was just the middle of March and now it's May. Once again, I'm going to provide a quick review of each of the books I read last month. For the last two weeks of the month, I participated in the Spring Into Horror Readathon hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. The only rule was that you had to read at least one book that was horror, thriller, etc. I read one book that qualified. With the exception of the first book in my list, the books I mention below were read during the readathon


My book club's May selection was Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. I had started reading this nonfiction book about the author's work representing men, women and children who were on death row in March but finished the book in April. This is an eye-opening story that everyone at my book club discussion agreed should be required reading for law schools and police officers and even legislators who are making the laws related to judgements. I learned to…
