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 …

Book Review: The Bookman's Tale by Charlie Lovett

Peter Byerly is distraught over the loss of his wife nine months ago. He has retreated to their cottage in the English countryside, hoping to return to his love of collecting and restoring rare books. But when he opens a book about Shakespeare forgeries and finds a Victorian watercolor of a woman who looks just like his wife, Peter is soon on a search for the origin of the painting and the truth about Shakespeare's real identity.

The Bookman's Tale: A Novel of Obsession by Charlie Lovett is a wonderful journey for anyone who loves books. It follows Peter's search in 1995, which turns into a bit of a thriller at times. But Lovett also takes the reader back in time a bit so we can learn the story of his relationship with his wife and how he came to be a bookseller. He does a beautiful job of expressing Peter's feelings about the rare books he encounters, and his feelings are contagious.

And then he takes us back even further to the history of one particular volume, whos…
