The Rooster Bar by John Grisham

This is the second book I have read by this author and I have to say it did not disappoint. The main characters Zola, Todd and Mark were great and you really felt for them.

After losing their friend Gordy, they can’t focus on finishing the last term of law school. They become more distant from their studies and friends on campus. While all this is going on Zola has to deal with her family being deported.

The three of them become closer and come up with a way of making money. At the same time, they use evidence from their good friend, Gordy in the hopes of get money back and paying off the large loans they have built up while at law school. Although, it doesn’t run as smoothly as they would like and they leave a trail of hidden identities and angry clients behind, all wanting money back.

This was an enjoyable read. Definitely recommended

The Time Machine by H.G.Wells

I really wanted to read this book but I was disappointed. I was expecting so much from it but I found it hard to follow. However, I read it to the end and even though there were a few interesting parts with the Morlocks, this book wasn’t for me.

Joe approaches a woman outside his FBI office as she is upset. Anna, says she has seen a war criminal from her home town in San Francisco, living only streets away from her.

Lindsey and Conklin, keep running into dead ends and are no closer to finding the teachers. A few days into the case, a body is found at a hotel. The body is soon identified as one of the missing teachers. Lindsey and her partner are now worried the other teachers maybe be dead but they still hold out hope they may be found alive.

Soon Joe is hunting this war criminal but he keeps coming up empty. When Anna goes missing, Joe steps things up in the hopes he finds Anna alive.  Lindsey and Conklin join forces with the FBI as it appears their cases are connected.

This book took a bit of getting used to as it was set 5 years previous. Having said that, I found it was a good read and fast pace and enjoyable.

Before the book

The concept of the cover was really tough when discussing this with the publisher. However, when a my husband put together a drawing, it quickly developed from there.

As you can see its not far from the cover that helped shape the final design.
