Every month I ask a question because I want to know what readers are thinking. So what’s my question for June, you may ask? Here it is:
Do you always finish a book whether you’re enjoying it or not? Or do you put it away? Or throw it against the wall? ‘-)What kinds of thing causes you to stop reading or dislike what you’re reading?
This should be very interesting to me as an author! I try to write books that stick to your fingers, meaning you find it hard to put them down. I like to write books that call to you when you do put them down. So think over the question and let me know your thoughts! BTW, I guarantee that the majority of my readers will be not be able to put my latest book down. Why not look at it and see what you think.

The Amish Cradle by Hannah Schrock
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’m not a big fan of Amish fiction but I do occasionally sample one that’s a bit different. The style of this story reminded me of a storyteller sitting down by the fire and telling the story of the life of one Amish Cradle. At first I didn’t know if I’d continue the story or not. But the main character engaged my sympathy and attention and I read on. The story of a cradle made for one baby but used in successive families was very touching. And each family had a deeply moving story. So yes, I do recommend The Amish Cradle. Not just to fans of Amish stories but to anyone who enjoys a moving story of real life not just amid the Amish.–Lyn

My new historical novel JOURNEY TO PEACE will come out in June and I need help choosing a cover model. Here are the three choices. Please choose one and tell me why he catches your attention and causes you to want to read his story.
Did you notice a difference? This is the first time I’m using a male model for one of my books. The story is about twin brothers, Johnny and Callum McKuen. If you’ve read JOURNEY TO RESPECT, you’ve met Johnny. So what do they look like?
And believe it or not, I’m also trying to choose a model for the 3rd book in my new Northern Shore Intrigue series, FATAL WINTER. As you could guess from the title, someone dies in this romantic suspense title. Here are three choices for my cover model. Which one entices you to want to know her story?
As usual, a few commenters will receive free ebooks. THANKS–Lyn
My husband and I are safe at home in Wisconsin. And I hope you are keeping safe too. I came across this series of videos focusing on prayer during the week preparing for Good Friday and Easter. I hope they will lift your spirit in this time of stress–God bless you and your loved ones and our nation.–Lyn
Here is the April Quesion: Are you a pinch cook? Or a recipe cook? Or a little of both? Or a non-cook? ‘-) I define a pinch cook as a cook who walks into the kitchen examines the ingredients in her pantry and fridge and comes up with a meal that she creates, kind of like a ‘play by ear’ musician. Or do you only like to cook from recipes that you carefully select from favorite cookbooks, family favorites or food show? Or both? Or not at all? I really want to know. And I do have a reason that has something to do with writing fiction for asking this! ‘-) Lyn
PS-As usual all commenters will be entered into a drawing for a free ebook.

Mrs Hudson and the Lazarus Testament by Martin Davies
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
WELL WRITTEN and with the authentic voice of a Sherlock Holmes mystery. (Not the original which I have read but with the flavor of all the PBS TV movie versions). The idea of Mrs. Hudson being as clever as Holmes but with a different milieu of contacts is clever. And very believable. She’s a great housekeeper and astute observer. The story of the existence of a testament written by Lazarus whom Jesus raised from the dead is intriguing in itself. Most of us are curious about the next life which may be more “real” than this one. And one can’t overlook Flotsam or “Flotty,” Mrs. Hudson’s young assistant, who has the uncanny knack of catching hints and clues. Both females compliment Holmes and Watson. This was a great read! I highly recommend it to Holmes devotees and anyone who enjoys a 19th century British mystery. YES!

Here’s February’s question: What do you like about where you live? Or if you’re not living where you want to be—Where would you like to live?
Whenever I start a new book, I always choose the setting first because that will tell me much about the people, their jobs, their feelings about living rural or urban, etc. Maybe that’s screwy but that’s how I work! The photos here from outside my window. Guess which one is now? ‘-) So tell me what’s outside your window and if you are living where you want to. Again a few commenters will be entered into a drawing for a free ebook.–Lyn
So January is gone–already! I am trying to keep good thoughts about winter. We’ve had an amazing amount of snow–nothing record-breaking but still it’s a challenge at street corners to see what’s coming. People here keep saying it’s not been a bad winter. And I think-what are you talking about? We’ve got at least two more months to go! So how has your winter been?–Lyn P.S. JOURNEY TO RESPECT is on sale for 99 cents NOW but not for long! 😉
