Great Book! Thriller: A Reason to Live

**Our Trip Blog will resume tomorrow after today's blog about a great book I read**

I had the pleasure of sitting next to Matthew Iden, a local author, at the Frederick Book Festival last month, and we traded
books. He wrote a great thriller called "A Reason to Live" that I read while on vacation. It was really engaging.
  Matt's a great writer who really makes you see, feel, and hear the characters and what they're thinking.
   The characters are likeable, and the story is great. There's a great and unexpected twist in the story that will surprise everyone. I highly recommend it!  I read this book in a couple of days!!

Here's a summary of the book: 
Ex-DC cop, Marty Singer, is facing an uphill battle against cancer. When graduate student Amanda Lane, the daughter of a homicide victim from twelve years earlier approaches him, worried that her mother's killer is now stalking her, Marty decides he must, despite his own health concerns, help her. His reasons are bigger than just helping a young woman in need -- as the lead detective on the mother's case, he feels responsible for the fact that her killer went free. Soon enough, Marty agrees that someone is stalking Amanda, the question is, is the stalker her mother's killer? And if so, how can they find him before he harms or possibly kills Amanda?

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
