Holy Cow by David Duchovny

Have you "herd" about the new book by actor David Duchovny? If you are in the mood for some silliness, Holy Cow, Duchovny's debut novel, approaches some serious real world issues in a highly humorous manner. There's nothing overly special about the book. It is a very whimsical story about farm animals that become friends and are looking to escape the inevitability of their lives. It is light, easy, entertaining, fast paced and, at times, just plain silly.

Escape to Chesapeake Shores

For me, reading Dogwood Hill by Sherryl Woods was a great escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The twelfth in her Chesapeake Shores series, it is a continuation of the O'Brien family saga in a small town on the Chesapeake Bay. Those O'Brien's are a meddlesome and loveable family, full of matchmakers known for lots of well-intentioned hijinks. Dogwood Hill is a simple story that is just plain pleasant and enjoyable and filled with family love and subtle humor – a perfect reading getaway.
