I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Tips for Tuesday: Books: Shiloh and Feared

We may have been given some of the below mentioned books for review purposes. Any and all opinions expressed here are our own.

Me - Today I am recommending Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. This is book about a boy who finds this dog who follows him home. He founds out the dog is owned by a man that owns hunting dogs and doesn't treat them well. His father makes him return the dog, but the dog comes back and the boy tries to hide him from his family. This is a great book for people who love animals. It has a good story.  It heartwarming but also sad in some parts. I would highly recommend it.

Mom - Today I am recommending Feared by Lisa Scottoline. The latest Rosato & DiNunzio novel may just be the best one yet. Mary is pregnant and she's supposed to be taking it easy and awaiting the birth of her child. Then, the law firm is sued for reverse sex discrimination for allegedly not hiring male lawyers,  and the one male lawyer who does work at the firm is murdered. Mary finds herself caught up in it all trying to save the reputation of the firm and her own while trying to solve the murder of a friend and colleague at the same time. This fast paced thrill ride will keep you guessing until the very end. Even if you haven't read any of Lisa Scottoline's Rosato & DiNunzio books before you can still enjoy this one. Scottoline gives you just enough background to bring you up to speed but not enough to make it boring or to repetitive to previous readers of the series.  Even if you don't necessarily enjoy mysteries, you may enjoy this book. It is more than a mystery. It's a book about family. The family that you are born with and those that become like family: friends, neighbors and even co-workers. It will leave you feeling not only satisfied but warm and happy too.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for Where-To-Go Wednesday.
