The premise is a creepy familiar yet, the story is a fascinating unique blend of a believable potential, and the prophecy that spawns it. The five main characters are a sensational group of interesting outcasts. Several times, Dr. Loeb the quasi-leader made me laugh and wrinkle my forehead. In my opinion he carries the story and provides the perfect personality and resume' to make it happen. His interaction with polar opposite, Bowen is entertaining and adds dimensional depth.

A fast-moving, quick read, this story is a clever scenario as the characters mirror the foundations of beliefs that surround the phenomenon. Please read, you will not be disappointed.

I do not often read books from this genre, but MOLLY HACKER IS TOO PICKY is not just another chick lit book. There is a lot of well thought substance to her and her dilemmas.  Molly Hacker is hilarious and her situation is one every woman will enjoy and every man should take a gander into the psyche of the woman. Is she too picky, well I’m not exactly sure? She certainly has a lot of dramatic personality traits.

The story is well-written and from within the humor and drama there is a not so subtle truth that females of all ages will understand and enjoy from a personal view. Molly’s job at the SWANSEA HERALD adds another entertaining layer to her as well as to the story.

Ultimately, Molly wants what we all want and that is to find not only love, but our soul mate. We should all be more like her and resist the urge to settle for less. Bravo to the talented Lisette Brodey for her fabulous character and delightful story.

HOME FOR CHRISTMAS: Best Loved Stories of All Time by Margaret Jean Langstaff

This sensational book stands as a testament to Margaret Jean Langstaff. Her knowledge and passion for classic and contemporary literature is ingeniously displayed in this collection of beloved Christmas tales.

The stories are priceless pieces with substance and meaning, worlds apart from the insipid commercialism that often infiltrates the season.

These precious narratives provide a depth designed to entertain adults and older children without destroying the season’s magic. My personal favorite comes to life in the fantasy, sci-fi like valley and caves of L. Frank Baum’s, A KIDNAPPED SANTA CLAUS. This is a fantastical tale of good and evil. The imagery of Laughing Valley and The Caves of the Daemons is absolutely grand. The vision literally takes my breath away.

All of the stories are awesome. The book is stunning with over 500 pages of the very best seasonal literature by these greats: L. Frank Baum (Author), Grace S. Richmond (Author), O. Henry (Author), Eleanor Hallowell Abbott (Author), Leona Dalrymple (Author), Eugene Field (Author), Abbie Farwell Brown (Author), Ellis Parker Butler and others (Author), Margaret Jean LangstaffI highly recommend this selection.
