Review:

Did you know that 1 in 5 Americans has anxiety? It really is no longer a hidden 'disease' but one that as a nation, we are experiencing more and more each day! So we need a book that can help us strive to not just 'remove factors from our lives, but properly deal with them.

The point that I truly LOVE that the author made in this book is that there isn’t a single cause or cure for anxiety disorders, because there often are multiple causes! If you think about it, he's right- worry, stress and anxiety can all come from multiple sources (work, school, family, relationships) and each can bring another symptom to the party, that you feel as anxiety. So why do we attempt to treat just one symptom? We need to look at everything that can be causing the symproms and see if we can remove the frustration, as to why the anxiety isn't going away, no matter what treatment is applied. It may seem simple, but it really if a whole person approach that is a HUGE difference than many tradiitional methods.

I loved how he used the analogy of breaking free from prison. It is something people can relate to, having seen it in multiple movies, and truly anxiety CAN feel like a prison at times! The steps that he gives the reader are easy to accomplish, and he ofers great advise and help, like to expect the unexpected. You need to KNOW that you will have setbacks, and you may take 2 steps back for every step forward. But knowing that it can happend, and hpw you will DEAL with it in advance, is what makes the difference, it is what allows you to keep moving forward! 

Overall, this book is perfect for families dealing with a child with anxiety, or for adults with it- the approaches can be used for both, and offer some really good plans on not nly understanding why and what gives you the anxiety, but hw to better handle them!


There is also a workbook that you can purchase, to use with this book. I think it would be of great help to teens and coeds!

Book Review: Land Rites by Andy Maslen

A country manor. Two murders. Multiple suspects. Can DI Ford solve the case before his own dark past is exposed?

land rites cover


Synopsis:

After a dog walker discovers human remains in a badger sett in the idyllic Salisbury countryside, DI Ford is called in to lead the ensuing murder investigation. When a second victim turns up in a nearby pond, Ford is determined to find the connection.

Both victims met their fate near the sprawling Alverchalke Estate, ancestral home of a decorated war hero and his family. One was a dogged eco-activist and vocal critic of Lord Baverstock. The other was a petty criminal and poacher, youngest brother of a notorious local crime family. Certain that there’s more to this case than trespassing, Ford and Dr Hannah Fellowes race to find the hidden link. But when one victim’s family threatens to expose Ford’s own dark secret, the ticking clock becomes a time bomb.

Still consumed by guilt over his part in his wife’s tragic accident and struggling to raise the teenage son he lied to, Ford now finds himself losing control of the investigation. Can he work with Hannah to solve the case while privately fighting off the attempted blackmail? Or have his demons finally caught up with him?



Review:

The  combination of Hannah and Di Ford is one of opposties and this story is one of even more opposties. Of landowners and those who oppose their wealth, and of the past and present. When they all come into play against one another, that is when the mystery begins. As Ford begins to find supsects, Hannah begins to wonder about Ford's past. As one winds up the clues, the other has clues abounding, and even  more questions. But the mystery offers more sublities, than it solves. You will be looking for book 3 as soon as you finish this one!

Book Review and Giveaway: The Drowning Kind by Jennifer McMahon

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Invited and The Winter People comes a chilling new novel about a woman who returns to the old family home after her sister mysteriously drowns in its swimming pool…but she’s not the pool’s only victim.


the drowning kind cover


Synopsis:

When social worker Jax receives nine missed calls from her older sister, Lexie, she assumes that it’s just another one of her sister’s episodes. Manic and increasingly out of touch with reality, Lexie has pushed Jax away for over a year. But the next day, Lexie is dead: drowned in the pool at their grandmother’s estate. When Jax arrives at the house to go through her sister’s things, she learns that Lexie was researching the history of their family and the property. And as she dives deeper into the research herself, she discovers that the land holds a far darker past than she could have ever imagined.

In 1929, thirty-seven-year-old newlywed Ethel Monroe hopes desperately for a baby. In an effort to distract her, her husband whisks her away on a trip to Vermont, where a natural spring is showcased by the newest and most modern hotel in the Northeast. Once there, Ethel learns that the water is rumored to grant wishes, never suspecting that the spring takes in equal measure to what it gives.

A haunting, twisty, and compulsively readable thrill ride from the author who Chris Bohjalian has dubbed the “literary descendant of Shirley Jackson,” The Drowning Kind is a modern-day ghost story that illuminates how the past, though sometimes forgotten, is never really far behind us.


Review:

This is the book you do NOT want to try to read in one sitting! Rather, you want to savor it, and enjoy its lyrical quality. This book will hav you on the edge of your seat from the second chapter, but resist that urger to speed thru! Enjpy its gothicness- it's so rare to find a good gothic tale these days! ennifer does an excellent job of mixing the past and the present, and keeping the reader excited to learn what has gone on before that is influencing the present. Add ths one to your must read list!
