American On Purpose, by Craig Ferguson

The improbable adventures of an unlikely patriot

I have just finished listening to the first book on tape I have heard in a long while, Harry Potter probably being my last.  I don’t tend to care for books on tape as I lose interest too quickly and my attentions stray to other places.  When I heard my favorite talk show host Craig Ferguson had written an autobiography I was interested, and I don’t even like reading an autobiography.  I was determined to go down to the local library and get the book to read, but never got around to it.  It wasn’t long until I heard that Craig  had been nominated for a Grammy.  I was intrigued, as I didn’t understand how he could get a Grammy, but then I learned it was for his book.  Now I had to get it, but I decided to get the audiobook instead.  How could I pass up listening to a Grammy nominated book read by Craig Ferguson?

Never Let You Go by Erin Healy

Lexi Solomon is doing all she can to raise her beautiful little girl Molly even though her husband Grant abandoned her seven years ago.  Not that Grant was much of a father figure, as he was addicted to several types of drugs and even was dealing them.  Lexi’s own father is in a mental institution after a mental breakdown.  Lexi’s sister’s murder triggered his mental collapse, combined with Lexi’s mother leaving him soon afterward.  But now the man responsible for Lexi’s sister’s murder, Grant, and Grant’s own drug dealer Warden (who is demanding payment with interest) are all back in town.  It sounds like a scenario only cooked up in the TV soap opera realm, but I promise you, this story has much more to offer than that!  Erin Healy writes an excellent novel that thrills you to the bone and leaves you shaking!
