    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.

  • Don't Order Dog: Jeri Halston, Book 1

    Tending bar at the ancient saloon on old Route 66 seems like the perfect way to sort things out.

    At least, that was the plan. But then the letters started arriving. Funny, rambling confessions of love from an unknown admirer, postmarked from every corner of the world. A Polaroid photo in each letter reveals a tantalizing glimpse of their sender, but never his true identity. And always the same strange sign off - Don't order dog. Jeri can't help but be intrigued.

    "do not order dog the book!"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't think anyone I know would enjoy this poorly written story. I kept hoping it would get better. But it never did.


    What was most disappointing about C. T. Wente’s story?

    It went on and on about how beautiful this young lady was and how smart she was . In fact she is just like so many young women, only she is a bar keeper who says smart remarks to the men who tell her she is beautiful. She is a rude person who is doing nothing but working in a bar.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was not good!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    DISAPPOINTMENT . Only the title was interesting , Down hill from there.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't order Dog the book.
