You’re Never Too Old to be a Daddy’s Girl #familylife #SundayBlogShare

My name’s Shelley and I’m a daddy’s girl!

I’m incredibly fortunate to have a strong bond with my dad, and over the years he has provided me, and my three children, with more support, guidance, and love than anyone could ever wish for.

Dad celebrated a ‘big’ birthday yesterday. He told me that seventy is the new fifty and he’s sticking with that!

His humour has evolved over the years to put even the most cutting comedian to the test, his fitness levels continue to surpass anyone twenty years his junior, and his striking resemblance to Sean Connery continues to be a talking point for all bar owners up and down the Mediterranean coast.

Moon Dance

Review:

I’ve been reading quite a few crime novels recently and seem to have developed a taste for who-dunnits. When I read the blurb and spotted the strap line for Moon Dance – A Vampire for Hire Novel – I was instantly intrigued.

Moon Dance is an easy read, full of poignant mummy moments that tug on the heart strings. Samantha Moon is not your normal vampire but she has a methodical way of dealing with her unique ‘disease’. She is also a Private Detective, conveniently able to work the night shift! She is a devoted mother and sister. There is also a well-developed relationship between her and the detective running the case. She never admits what she is to anyone, although they have their suspicions, and it makes for a fun tale at times.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Review:

The title and colourful cover design are an instant attraction and offer an insight of what to expect when you pick up a copy of Do Not Wash Hand in Plates. Many years ago, three friends left America to explore the delights of Europe – having survived to tell the tale (and with a few years of life experience under their belts) they decided to take another trip. This delightful book is a quick, humorous account of Barb’s trip across India with her best friends, Jaya Ayyer and Janine Smith.
