“Off to War” by Wayne Hancock

I can cross another novel off my list. I am a fan of author Wayne Hancock and the mysteries or crime fictions that he normally writes. This one didn’t let me down, even though it was a little different than previous books in this series. In previous books, they were usually looking for someone who murdered somebody….in this book they’re trying to keep German spies from invading their community. I was entertained the whole time and I enjoyed the book. I also enjoyed the fact that you get a sense of how people lived back then versus how they live today.

Synopsis: Off to War is the fourth book, and the exciting conclusion to the Gotcha! Series, eleven years in the making. This time Buck Pettit’s investigating club is chasing German spies instead of murderers. Read how they find and eliminate this threat to our national security. What happens to Irv and Will as they reach the draft age? How will they react to this threat of war from abroad? With keen insight and a great ability to blend history and fiction, author Wayne Hancock illuminates the hard times and struggles that existed during the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Spiderman: Far From Home

My husband and I got to watch “Spiderman: Far From Home” over the weekend. It was a really good movie and I enjoyed it. There was a few funny moments in the movie and lots of action going on. There are 2 “scenes” after the credits but I won’t ruin it for you if you are planning on seeing this movie yourself. But this is a good movie to see if you are a fan of Marvel movies. I will warn you that there may be spoilers in this movie if you haven’t already watched Avengers: Endgame and Captain Marvel.

Looking forward to….

I don’t know if any of you have been reading Madeleine Roux’s “House of Furies” series but I have. I own the first and second books in hardcover and I’ve enjoyed reading both of them. Well, the third book is set to be released on May 19th of this year and I can hardly wait. I want to see where the story takes us and what happens to the characters in this book. If you haven’t read this series yet, you should….unless you are easily scared.
