Making Marion: Where’s Robin Hood When You Need Him? by Beth Moran

Making MarionSynopsis:~

She had been looking for somewhere to stay, but instead Marion Miller finds herself on the wrong side of the reception desk at the Peace and Pigs campground and, despite her horrible shyness, promptly lands herself a job.

Marion came to Nottinghamshire–home of Sherwood Forest–to discover her father’s mysterious past, but all she has to go on is a picture of her father dressed up, it would seem, as Robin Hood.

Life on a busy campground challenges Marion’s formerly controlled life–the pigs roam free, the resident chickens seem determined to thwart her, and an unfortunate incident with a runaway

Bookish Question of the Week

rp_Quoftheweek1-300x300.pngA quick and easy question today! Family sagas – are you in or are you out?

Series seem to be pretty popular these days and family sagas seem to be the rage – Susan May Warren‘s Christiansen family, Dani Pettrey‘s McKenna clan, Denise Hunter‘s McKinleys, even Karen Kingsbury‘s Baxter family who populated more books than I can count! And who could forget Dee Henderson‘s O’Malleys? Orphans who created their own family.

What appeals to you (or not) about a series of books that focus on the one family? Do you have any favourites?

Bookish Question of the Week

QuoftheweekWhile I don’t have the time these days with my reviewing obligations, I’ve always loved to re-read my favourite novels. They are like comfort food to me :)

I’m a bit of “fussy librarian” when it comes to looking after my books – most often you can’t tell I have read them but then there are those that you can see have been loved on a little bit more than others. Here’s some books I’ve read multiple times:

 

  • Angela Hunt’s Heirs of Cahira O’Conner series
  • Francine River’s Mark of the Lion series
  • Bodie Thoene’s Zion Covenant and Zion Chronicles
  • Dee

The last book that made me laugh out loud was…Becky Wade’s Meant To Be Mine.

I’m completely immersed in their storytelling, whenever I read a book by…Maureen Lang. She’s my critique partner. I …
