Classic To Contemporary String Quiltsby Mary M. Hogan

Pages:  127

Audience:  Adult

Review:

This book is not for someone just starting to learn to quilt.  The directions are not very clear.  The idea for using up strips of fabric from other projects is good.

Project:

I made a smaller version of the Dresden plate table runner.  The directions were incomplete and there were errors in some of the other projects.


Olive, Again (Audiobook) by Elizabeth Strout

Pages: 10 CDs

Audience:  Adult

This is an easy to listen to story while doing other things.  It is the remembrances of events in Olive’s life and scenes from others whose lives she touched.

Once Upon A River by Diane Setterfield

Pages: 464

Audience: Adult

Review:

Once the storyline is set up the book kept me guessing as to what would happen.  With all the twists and turns, it was not until the very end that everything comes together with and ending I was only partially able to guess.


Strangers She Knows by Christina Dodd

Reviewed by Irene Meier

Pages:  335                 Audience:  Adult

Review:

Strangers she knows is a romantic suspense novel, whose main character is a heroine.  There is also a serial killer who is after her.  The end is predictable with a few twists and turns in between.
