[In a Nutshell] April 2017

Book wise, April had me showered in awesome reads !  I was able to knock out four reviews. I may have been able to squeeze out another one but April almost whacked me down a few times. So yes, April on a personal level has been hectic. Many trips to the clinic with the kids and a basement full of water. This lead to major excavation work around the house. It’s a headache but at least I have my books to retreat into when things get crazy.

[Book Review] The Hell Of It All by Bob Kroll

It was nice to find myself with T.J. Perterson once again. I missed him the second I finished reading The Drop Zone.
I found this novel a nice change of pace from my two or three previous reads. Bob Kroll not only brought me straight into dark side of Halifax but he also took me deep within the darkest recesses of T.J Peterson. From my cushy leather sofa, Kroll transported me into The Hell Of It All!! (and it is a frightening place)

[Review] Cracking The Quebec Code

When I was growing up in Ontario, I’d often hear so much strange stories about the province next door, most of it wasn’t the least bit flattering.   Upon moving here some 20 years ago, it was a culture shock.  It took me a good two years to really feel like I belonged.  Eventually, with much practice, I was able to order ice cream, pizza or poutine and use the correct lingo.  
Cracking The Quebec Code is not necessarily a book to devour as you would a mystery or romance novel.  You’ll probably pick it up, read a chapter or flip to something of interest within its pages.  Nevertheless, inside the pages you’ll find great insight based on 30 years of data collected from the Leger survey firm.
