Ammie Come Home by Barbara Michaels

A séance may awaken more than you thought and you should never play with darkness.  A Georgetown mystery with a bit of paranormal.  Excellent use of suspense and history all mixed together.  Well written and fun to read.

Mama Day by Gloria Naylor

Life is not always easy and sometimes the most obvious things are not the things we chose to do.  A story of a low country family, a man from New York, a bit of conjure work, love, loss, and struggle.

This was the right book at the right time for me, thank you Lara for sending it.

Seeker by Jack McDevitt

An archeological mystery set way, way, way in the future.  This is light sci-fi but reads well and as all good sci-fi should questions a moral standpoint.  Not my usual reading but I am glad I read it.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

An excellent blend of novel and black and white photographs that tell a story of children and adults that have unusual abilities which must be hidden from the world.  The storyline is well thought out and moves at an even pace but it is the pictures that add the spice to the telling.

Very enjoyable and I am looking forward to the next in the series.
