Another year has come to an end (can you believe it?!) and the 20’s are back in action! Who else is excited for this chance to wear Flapper dresses and search for Jazz Clubs? Until I find those I will have to stick with the fictional clubs. I hope you were able to read some very good books last year. My goal was to read 100 books in the year and I ended it with 158 books! My most read year ever! Here are my top favorite books of 2019-
Winnie The Pooh and the Blustery Day by A.A. Milne
As far back as I can remember one of my favorite stories (and audio books) of all time has been this one. A windy day, a stormy night, and friends coming together to help each other. This is such a sweet story to read to, or listen with, your young ones. I no longer have a cassette player but it can be found on YouTube.

Secrets at Cedar Cabin by Colleen Coble
This story has stuck with me months after reading it. You have Bailey, a woman whose mother is murdered and now she has to go on the run, and you have Lance, a man determined to rescue his sister, Ava, who was abducted. This story is jam-packed with emotion, a roller coaster of shock and twists and turns. It presents a very real trouble we deal with all over the world- sex trafficking and who can we truly trust.

Hollywood Lost by Ace Collins
Step back to the glitz and glamour of 1930’s Hollywood, a time when small town girls want to make it to the big screen. For Shelby, finding work in the wardrobe department is a dream job. Lurking in the shadows, however, is a murderer targeting women. I loved the details of the story, the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat, and the writing was fabulous!

The Lost Girls by Heather Young
Summer 1935- 6yo Emily disappears from her family’s vacation home. 60 years later Emily’s sister leaves behind a notebook of the story of that devastating summer and gives it to her grandniece, Justine. Thus begins a suspenseful, heart-wrenching look into the past. It had my heart pounding and kept me up at night from the first page to the final page.
