More Celebration of Color: TELL ME WHY by Sandi Wallace

Mostly green cover

This was a novel I won in a blogger friend’s giveaway! It is an Aussie novel, something I’ve not read before, and the first book in a series. Wallace’s “Georgie Harvey and Franklin series” promises to be one I will follow up on. It was suspenseful, especially at the end, and very exciting. I will definitely buy the sequel, Dead Again, to follow the lives and adventures of the main characters. Georgie Harvey, a journalist’s, elderly friend Ruby, asks her to check on Susan Pentecost, Ruby’s friend who lives in a nearby town. When Georgie starts nosing around, she gets off to a bad start with John Franklin, the Senior Constable, who wishes women would stick to their “place” and leave police work to the police.

Add in the local mob, a “fatal” fire, a religious nut suspect, and Franklin’s rebellious daughter, and you have the perfect murder mystery which leads to an exciting, “ouch” ending.

Thanks to my young blogger friend for this cool sign off! She makes them as a business. For details contact me at raelongest300@msn.com

This year (2019) finds me with 50 years of teaching "under my belt." I have taught all levels from pre-K "(library lady" or "book lady"--volunteer) to juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled in my Advanced Writing class at the university where I have just completed 30 years. My first paying teaching job was junior high, and I spent 13 years with ages 12-13, the "difficult years." I had some of the "funnest" experiences with this age group. When I was no longer the "young, fun teacher," I taught in an elementary school setting before sixth graders went on to junior high, teaching language arts blocs, an assignment that was a "dream-fit" for me. After completing graduate school in my 40s, I went on to community college, then university teaching. Just as teaching is "in my blood," so is a passion for reading, writing, libraries, and everything bookish. This blog will be open to anyone who loves books, promotes literacy and wants to "come out and play."

  1. It is always great to win something, especially a book. It is even better when you enjoy it enough to continue with the series. It sounds quite good, but when is it set. I’m not sure what “my place” is.
