Five Stars for James Mullinger

Brit Happens: Or Living The Canadian Dream is much more than a story of a boy who found love and his home in Canada. This is a story of a dream, many risks and some obscure rewards. I loved this book, not because of being familiar with the names dropped throughout but because it is […]

Peace By Chocolate, My Review and More

Peace by Chocolate: The Hadhad Family’s Remarkable Journey from Syria to Canada by Canadian author Jon Tattrie is a wealth of information, emotion and motivation. This book is more than the story of Tareq, the first of his family to escape Syria and arrive in Canada. It’s much more than the tale and woes of […]

Book Review of Good Burdens by Christina Crook

When I think of burdens I imagine a long list of daily chores, mundane tasks and must-do’s, too often prioritizing them so regularly it’s just automatic. These nuisances that take time and energy to complete are always there – groceries, laundry, dishes, school lunches – and I always dread them. How can I make them […]

Money Like You Mean It: Personal Finance Tactics for the Real World by Erica Alini

A book by a Canadian author that should be taught and discussed in all schools in our country. It was wonderful to have a book focused on Canadian methods as so many are focused around the American way. While admittedly quite knowledgeable when it comes to the financial world, Alini was able to teach me […]

Poles Apart by Canadian Author Terry Fallis

I have never loved a story as much as felt frustrated by it in the same way as I did with Poles Apart which just makes me like it even more. A story about a male feminist who is fighting for equality through his words. A freelancer, only child, son of divorced parents and someone […]

Mistletoe Magic by Kelly Moran

*Side note, before we get started: Every darn time I write Mistletoe I first write Mistletow. I even think about it but automatically add that ‘w’ and hope I am not the only one.* Kelly Moran is not only a talented author who lives south of the Canadian border, but I’ll forgive her for that, […]

Dying Season by Rebecca MacFarlane

I am so happy to celebrate the relaunch of Canadian author from New Brunswick Rebecca MacFarlane with Dying Season. After putting writing aside for a bit to focus on her family, MacFarlane has a plan to emerge with a punch and this book packs a lot! The premise of the story line, a virus that […]
