Review: All Inclusive

All Inclusive All Inclusive by Farzana Doctor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book that I have read by this author. Excellent! She can get into a situation, almost as if she is living it herself and knows exactly how the characters feel and act. Ameera is from Hamilton Ontario and is working as a tour representative at a resort in Mexico. She never knew her father but is interested in finding out about him if possible. Her mother has only very limited information about him.

Very good read.

Review: The Illegal

The Illegal The Illegal by Lawrence Hill
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Two fictitious countries situated in the Indian Ocean. One, Zantoroland, a very poor dictatorship and the other, Freedom State, a rich nation. If I hadn't known this was fiction, I would have believed the story.

Keita Ali is a runner who has fled Zantoroland after his father, a famous journalist, has been murdered. Freedom State doesn't want refugees and sends them back in boats as soon as possible. There is corruption everywhere within the political parties.

This story is a tiny window into what it is like to be hunted in your own country and trying to be accepted in a country that doesn't want you.

Excellent read.

Review: The Crossing

The Crossing The Crossing by Michael Connelly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Harry is back, just this one time according to him. His half brother Mickey Haller has asked him to help him to find evidence to clear a client who he is sure is innocent of the charge of murder.

Harry is not happy about being on the opposite side, defense, after his life of prosecution and makes it clear that it is only going to be this one case. Harry is very thorough with investigative procedures.

A very enjoyable read, especially for lovers of crime and courtroom.
