Dressed to Confess by Diane Vallerie

I would very much like to visit Proper City, Nevada where dressing up is the norm for the town festivals.  I think that the costumes that Margo helps to provide would really lend to the small town atmosphere, and it would make for a great visit, except for the murder.   I really enjoy the characters and think that running across them in real life would make a trip very memorable.  I liked trying to figure out what would happen next and what Margo would find out next.  Sometimes I beat her to figuring something out and quite often I was wrong with what I guessed.  A great read.
     I received  a copy of the book from the author, the review is entirely my own.

Maggie Bright by Tracy Groot

This book tells the story of the Maggie Bright a sailing vessel and the secrets it harbors.  When the boat is called into action in WWII, Claire knows that it will do what is necessary, even if the American piloting it, isn't fully committed.
     I really enjoyed this book and its insight into events of WWII.  I was unaware of many of the events and the author has done a good job of portraying them in a way that makes it interesting and not like reading a history book.   I knew that due to production timing that many civilian vehicles were "drafted"into the war effort and the story behind the Maggie Bright made it even more interesting.
