My relaxation book of the month for April 2008 is Homefront by Chuck Logan.
Although is starts with a bullying incident that made me consider closing the book for good, I kept with the story and I am pleased that I did because the story was well told.
Phil Broker and Nina Pryce, along with their daughter Kit, move to Glacier Falls, Minnesota. It's a small town that has its own drama related to meth labs, mob, bullying and pollution.
A small incident between Kit and the local bully ends up snowballing into a nightmare situation. The army and police background of the parents comes in handy to deal with the unexpected repercussions.
My non-fiction relaxation book of the month for April 2008 is 300 Handcrafted Soaps: Great Melt & Pour Projects by Marie Browning.
