Your Every Move took me back to my younger years when my world seemed to change unexpectedly and finding solid footing often seemed beyond my grasp. Alternating between the security of a few trustworthy loved ones and being at the mercy of new relationships was daunting and sometimes dangerous. I enjoyed reading how Amanda faced her challenges and grew to trust herself and her decisions. Thanks for a story with love, suspense and mystery, and the reminder that growth is frequently the result of surviving painful circumstances. ~Janice L.

A Very Special Year by Thomas Montasser
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This quiet, magical book reminds us that we write our own stories every day of our lives.
When Aunt Charlotte disappears, Valerie steps in to help at her aunt’s little bookstore. What starts out as a chore turns into a time of discovery, not only of herself, but the power of books to take us into new and wonderful worlds, and finding new friends and their stories. Frankly, the possibilities are endless. I read this book in two days and enjoyed every moment.

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things
that escape those who dream only at night.”

“It is more fitting for a man to laugh at life than to lament over it.”
“Your Every Move starts sweet and reels you in. Soon your heart is in your throat and you’re all about protecting the girl. Nice job – an enjoyable read”

Nothing is working out like she planned.
Amanda Cook doesn’t know who is following her or why. She is just a simple college student planning out her future, working at the neighborhood taco shop and living with her great aunt.
When her best friend’s cousin, Mitch, arrives in town he immediately steals her heart, but someone else wants it more. Her paranoia grows when she spots the same car at odd places around town and starts getting strange letters in the mail.
One night after class, a man tackles Amanda and wrestles her to the ground. As she fights for her life, she has the heartbreaking realization that her stalker could possibly be someone she knows.
Do you remember your mother or grandmother reading stories to you when you were small? When my son and grandsons were little I read to them before bed. As they grew I encouraged them to “read” their favorite stories to me. Since we read Dr. Suess and Paddington Bear over and over again, they knew what happened on every page and could almost recite the words before they could read.
There are quotes from books or films (stories) that stick in our minds and never go away. They speak to us. They make us laugh or cry or think. “Everything looks better with pearls,” is one of my faves. I don’t wear pearls but I remember watching Audrey Hepburn and Doris Day in films and they always had pearls on and looked beautiful and confident.
These days superheroes are very popular, everyone wants to be a hero, save the day, have superpowers. Imagine it? Of course, you can, we all can. Stories about ordinary people who find out they have extraordinary gifts inspire us to be greater.
Everyone has stories in them. Our lives are vignettes, scenes that play out every day. Sometimes they are boring, but they can just as easily be exciting, frightening, or romantic. Share your stories. If you don’t want to write them down, speak them to others, take photographs that tell a story, paint a picture, write/sing a song. We all love a good story.
