USPS SHREDDING UNDELIVERABLE BOOKS



I was shocked this morning to hear that a Tennessee post office is shredding undeliverable children's books. These books are a part of the Dolly Parton Books From Birth program. 

It is my understanding the Clarksville, Tennessee post office had made an agreement to hold these undeliverable books until a volunteer from the Nashville based organization could come pick them up. Now the organization has learned that the post office has been shredding them instead of holding them. They are shredding around 70 Books From Birth books a month! 

Why? Why? Why? According to a BFB representative, the post office is trying to reduce cost and increase revenue. This just makes no sense to me. These unclaimed books could easily be donated to libraries, or children's hospitals like St. Jude or Lebonheur.

SYNOPSIS:

The ceremony is a step away, and everyone is watching.

It's not long before she finds herself lured into a dangerous entanglement that could jeopardize everything she's worked hard for, including her undercover identity.
A statue. A letter. A secret.

And only one thing's certain . . .
A Murder.




MY RATING: 3 STARS

This is a really hard review to write because I really like the story and characters, but the editing hindered the story greatly. This is going to be one of those reviews where I have to do “The Good/The Bad”. Lets get “The Bad” out of the way first so I can at least end on a good note.

The Bad:

If it weren't for the fact that I love the characters and the story, I would've gave this book 2 stars due to the poor proofreading. There was a mistake on almost every other page. It really bothers me when I see such potential in a story, to only have to down grade my rating because of errors that could have easily been caught and fixed. I really, really hope when the author gets time, she will go back through this book and fix the errors and release a new edition of this Kindle story so the rating doesn't affect her sales...because it is a good story—really! The first book had some editing issues, but it was nothing compared to the errors with this one.

With the introduction of Charlie in this first book, I knew I'd see more of him in the second book as a love interest for Calise. I was excited to see how this would play out. There was only one thing about Charlie that bothered me—he kept calling Calise “Girl”. That drove me nuts. Tre some times uses the word “Girl” instead of the name of the female he's talking to, and it doesn't bother me at all. It sounds right coming from Tre, but not from Charlie. His use of the word “Girl” should've been limited to only a couple of times.

I wanted to see Chris more in this book. He is a huge part of the story, and I sort of missed him in this book. He was more of a background character. I needed more Chris!

Some of the scene transitions were a little bit confusing. The characters will be doing on thing, or be in one place, then suddenly they are somewhere else, or doing something different.

The Good:

I really like the overall story and the characters. I love the whole “forbidden love” thing between Calise and Chris. All the characters have their own personalities and they work well together. Calise is starting to evolve as a character as she starts figuring out exactly who she is. I also liked how she is willing to sacrifice her spot on the most wanted team to help Tre.

Calise is getting closer to figuring out what happened to Jennifer. I have an idea of what I think happened to her, whether I'm right or not I won't find out until the next book. So the disappearance of the missing spade, Jennifer, is still ongoing through this book.

It seems that Blue and Kevin are warming up to Calise a bit more in this book. I think in the next book Blue and Calise might even become friends. Of course, that's just speculation on my part.

Even with the technical problems this book has, I'm still looking forward to the next installment of the Spades series. I really like the story and the characters and want to see where the next book takes them.

Book Description

by CJ Lyons (Legacy Books)
Genres
Book Description
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author CJ Lyons is noted for her "breathtakingly fast-paced" (Publishers Weekly) thrillers and has been called a "master of the genre" (Pittsburgh Magazine).

In LUCIDITY she combines the worlds of supernatural horror, medical thrillers, and a love story that spans eternity.

If you like your stories with multiple layers, a touch of the metaphysical, and complex plots, then LUCIDITY is for you.

It's about free will and the choices we make everyday.

It's about the price we pay for that free will-and the price others around us pay.

But most of all it's a bittersweet love story about a woman who would do anything to be with her lost love-then she's forced to choose between saving the world and saving him.

Lucidine, a drug that could save the world...or destroy it.

Former ER doctor Grace Moran has been through a lot. After witnessing her husband's murder and barely surviving herself, she's left medicine and become a prisoner of her own house and mind. Until she wakes up in her old hospital, told that she has a brain tumor that can only be treated if she agrees to participate in an experimental drug protocol using Lucidine.

Grace sees her brain tumor as a blessing rather than a curse. It's a chance for her to die and be reunited with her lost love, her soul mate, her husband.

Before she can flee the hospital, she stumbles on two critically ill children whose lives are also at stake. Will Lucidine cure them or kill them? The three work to unravel the mysteries behind the experimental drugs and the strange effects it has on patients but unwittingly unleash a madman intent on murder.

Their only allies are the ghost of Grace's murdered husband, a time-traveling Jesuit, and an ancient Irish warrior queen as they are pulled into a world where time is meaningless, fate is fluid, and love never dies....
