This is the second book by Michelle Grande that I picked up for free and am very grateful to have it. As I have said before I will be moving onto a property that will have enough land for a garden soon so I am gathering information while I can. Sure, I won’t be able to work on the garden until next Spring, still I think it wise to read as much as I can so I can be ready to start said garden. This book and the previous volume will be on my ‘reference shelf’ to gather whatever information I might need. The book is thorough addressing most vegetables/herbs a person might want to grow and each of the needs. It also addresses pests and ways to keep the garden organic. In fact, the second half of this book is individualized per veggie. That will make referring back easier when it is time. I didn’t read this last part as it is detailed with information I don’t need right now. But I will read it in the future.
I was lucky enough to pick this one up for free. It is still free on Kindle Unlimited but is well worth the $2.99. I look forward to putting these books to the test next year.

This book is very informative. And a great introductory book about the benefits of magnesium in our diets or supplementals.
BUT it was repetitive. VERY repetitive. Maybe because I have read all of this before elsewhere? I did come away with more of a curiosity to try to make sure I get more of this mineral either in my diet or on my body (soaking in Epson Salt or using the oil) to see if it will help with my fibromyalgia.
If you are curious this book is only $.99 for Kindle or free with Kindle Unlimited. Well worth it to see if it is something you might need to add to your heal regiment.

Well, this was fun. And different. But it is what I expect from Q. Kelly. I love the way she writes. I love her characters and her world building. Her plots are always just a little surprising and fun.
Don’t get me wrong, This story deals with some depressing issues, death and loss. But ghosts are involved and love. Lots of love. And growing of characters.
This story seems to be a short one as it stops midstory. But turn the page and a whole other twist arises. Nope. Not telling. Spoilers!
What pulls you in at the beginning of the story is the children who are now ghosts. Their world is just the vacation cabin and a small amount of land surrounding it. It is from their point of view. Gradually we get to know the author who is stuck at that cabin with writer’s block. Can you see the fun you are about to take by joining them her their world? You will be inhabiting many POVs by the end, but they all help the story to grow.
Though this book includes some lesbian love, it is mild for the straights that might find that sort of thing offputting. There is just so much love of all kinds in here that it all equals out. And it makes you think… what if????? I like those kinds of stories. But that is a hallmark style for Ms. Kelly. I love how she cooks a story to perfection. I was going to just give this four stars. But I think I will give five. I know I will think back to this story Time and Time Again, again. 😉 I may even need to reread it to delve into this vacation space again.
