THESE REVIEWS ARE THE OPINIONS OF THE MEMBERS OF THE BOOK CLUB.  2004

I reviewed INSIGHT and could not put it down.  I love a good mystery-thriller novel.
As I read the book--it really had me in suspense--I kept trying to figure out how Samantha and Rachael were linked together.  I also loved the part where her family was very protective of her.  But when she took off and flew to New York by herself--being blind-trying to find out what happened to Rachael--I was just knocked off my feet.  The twists and turns of the novel really had me going. (Also with her playing the part of Rachael which was brave of her.) It is definitely a page turner and a must read for a book clubs--I am suggesting that my book club read this novel.  I commend you on doing such a wonderful job with the novel and I really think a movie should be made out of it.  I give INSIGHT a thumbs up and will also recommend it to my friends.

Sugar & Spice by Keith Lee Johnson
 
Sugar & Spice is a very exciting book that is full of suspense and drama. I read that book in less than 24 hours because I wasn't able to put it down. It will take you on a "thrilling" journey with the F.B.I. agents who tries to figure out who is responsible for all the murders. It has a remarkable ending that will not only shock you, but leave you wondering could that have really happened. It is a must read for all book clubs and anyone who is a fan of mystery novels. I am looking forward to reading more by Mr. Johnson.

A suspenseful novel that is sure to be a page turner. This is one book that I could possibly read over. Entangled is full of twist and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. I am looking forward to reading more from Mr. Elliott.

 
Sacrifice the One by Monica P. Carter

So Seta starts confusing lust from young men as love and was experiencing heartache after heartache. Seta keeps her head up and eventually becomes a very successful person. This book was different from anything that I have read in a while. It gets you to take a closer look at what it feels like to be neglected by a parent and losing those that are close to you from a child's point of view.
