I love to read. I love books. I like to talk about books and recommend them. I read everything including cereal boxes and junk mail! I heard once that if you're not reading at least 3 books at a time you're not reading enough! This blog will keep track of the books I've read and whether or not I liked them. It will be a little bit of everything from Christian fiction to Science fiction and fantasy. Feel free to participate by suggesting books to review and giving your comments. Occasionally I am given free books by Publishers in exchange for a review. I am not told how to review them or compensated in any way for the review.

Invisible by Lorena McCourtney

Ivy Malone is an elderly widow who lives along and goes to church. She lives in a comfortable neighbourhood with life- long friends surrounding her. Life is good if a little dull until her best friend passes away and she finds herself involved in a couple of mysteries.

Mystery #1 involves vandalism in the cemetery where her friend is buried and Ivy decides to do some midnight reconnaissance to see if she can find out what’s happening.

Mystery #2 involves her friend’s renter Kendra who disappears. Eventually as in all good stories the two mysteries appear to be related and Ivy is hot on the trail of would be killers, thieves and vandals. Her faith in God is a strong part of the story and the ensuing discussions about faith are very natural.

This is a good story. Think Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple with an evangelical bent. It’s the type of book where you don’t have to worry about the language or inappropriate scenes. This is Book #1 in the Ivy Malone series and I’ve already downloaded Book #2.


  1. Wow, midnight graveyards and skulking about in the dark do sound so mysterious. I do believe you have inspired me to head to the library and broaden my scope. Pssst, Shhhhhh, Ouch. Aha!

  2. I know the library had some of her books because I checked it out for Mom. I thought they would be ones she would enjoy, and so would you.
