Review: Dancing with the Sandman by L.T. Garvin

Dancing with the Sandman

 

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

The Sandman cometh dancing to the beat of rock ‘n’ roll, blasting the turmoil of the Sixties. And where are you? West Texas, of course. Billie Jo Dunstan confronts her past, traveling back to the 1960s through a decade of turbulence and swirling color memories, contemplating life growing up in rural Texas. Tragedy and comedy come alive, preserving the past and a portion of small town life that will survive beyond super highways and the ratcheting progress of time.
***
Garvin’s (And They Came, 2017, etc.) latest novel offers a reflection of one girl’s coming-of-age in small-town Texas in the 1960s. … Garvin is at her best when offering these cheeky nods to the past, never getting bogged down in nostalgia.

A winning narrator enlivens a charming tale of a town facing modernity.–Kirkus Reviews

Rating: 4-stars

Review: 

Dancing with the Sandman by L.T. Garvin is about a rural town losing its history due to the world. The writing was entertaining to follow and easy to get lost within… Places are always changing yet the same people are still there. The writer gives a deeper look into the protagonist’s past and present life. The pages are fill with humor, memories, and life. It was like watching a movie through Billie Jo’s eyes. Her intake on the past and present made it enjoyable. Overall, this was a heartfelt women’s fictional piece that I do recommend to others. It was fun traveling to Texas with Billie Jo Dunstan.

Review: A Casualty of Hope

 

Synopsis:

Bernie Robertson has a recurring nightmare of being pursued by a killer through a snowy desert. This nightmare could be the response to the stress of divorcing an abusive husband and raise a daughter alone, or it could be the repressed memory of an actual event.
When Bernie’s husband is arrested and her apartment trashed, Bernie makes the decision to move to Texas and search for her birth mother. There she meets and begins falling in love with Mike West, a man with a secret he is trying to hide. When she begins the search for her birth mother in earnest, she is plunged into a terrifying situation where the event she is struggling to remember might be the thing that puts her and her daughter in terrible jeopardy.

Bernie returns back home thinking that she can move on until danger reappears in her life. Causing her to rethink everything and to feel at a loss for what to do. Then, there is the new man in her life who has been holding onto a secret that he wasn’t able to let go until the ending. Will this cause a rift between them or will they finally find the peace and life they always dreamed of…Marguerite Mooers is a talented writer whose characters will send your heart pounding with fear and your  palms sweating in suspense. Overall, I loved reading this novel. A Casualty of Hope is everything readers will want and can ask for in a fictional piece. Brilliantly well-written and told for readers worldwide to enjoy.
