Of Windmills and War

By Diane Moody / Genre: Historical Fiction / Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars (1,004 reviews)

Of Windmills and War

The rumblings of war in distant countries mattered little to Danny McClain. Growing up in Chicago, his world revolved around after-school jobs, a rescued beagle, his pen pal in Holland, and the Cubs’ chance to go to the World Series. Then, in December of 1941, during his first year at Northwestern University, news of the attack on Pearl Harbor hit much too close to home. After a series of unexpected events over the next couple of years, Danny found himself in the co-pilot seat of a B-17, stationed with the 390th Bomb Group in Framlingham, England.

Anya Versteeg had been just a teenager when Hitler’s troops invaded her homeland of Holland in May of 1940. Forced to grow up much too fast, the feisty preacher’s daughter eagerly immersed herself in the Dutch Resistance and its many efforts to thwart the enemy. Certain that God had turned His back on Holland, she closed her heart and did whatever she had to do to save her country before it was too late.

By 1945, the people of Occupied Holland were starving. Cut off from the outside world in retaliation for their failed attempt to oust the Germans invaders, the Dutch had no food, no electricity, no fuel, and little hope of surviving. Thousands were dying every day. Then, just days before the war ended, help came to The Netherlands like manna from heaven.

Operation Chowhound held special meaning for Lieutenant Danny McClain. Somewhere below in the battered land of tulips and windmills was the girl who needed rescuing–after rescuing so many others. And he would move heaven and earth to find her.

A nuclear fallout wiped out every living thing on the planet, except for a few thousand of us who took shelter in underground bunkers across the globe. Now, after thirteen long years, we were finally able to return to the topside to begin to rebuild.

We thought we were alone. We were never more wrong.

Before the fallout, scientists had worked on creating an anti-radiation vaccine (ARV). The first two attempts failed, but despite the incomplete tests and results, the government approved and distributed the third serum to the masses in an effort to aid those who had no shelter.

It worked, keeping those who remained on the topside alive, but it also altered and mutated them. This new and infectious threat had completely outnumbered us. Now, we not only had to rebuild our planet. We would have to fight for it.

By Tina Lencioni / Genre: General Humor, Humor & Satire / Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars (152 reviews)

Kate McCall, Private Eye

Kate McCall, Private Eye is the first of a series featuring a novice private investigator with more spunk than sense.

Confident and optimistic, Kate McCall is convinced she can make a success of her private investigation business despite the fact that she hasn’t had a single case. Not so optimistic are the members of her big Irish family, especially her sisters, who are there at every opportunity to point out Kate’s dire financial state and to encourage her to find a steady office job. When three investigations suddenly fall into her lap Kate grabs onto this windfall, and in just a few short days unravels the secrets behind the collapse of a high school athlete, the theft of her ex-boyfriend’s pastry recipes, and a question of paternity posed by a querulous old man. Tagging along as reluctant assistants are Kate’s charming, unemployed cousin Nick, and Pickles, her little dog of indeterminate breed. Teenagers with attitude, a tempestuous French chef, a mysterious handbag designer, and a peculiar, ever-present neighbor join other quirky characters in places as diverse as a haphazard commercial bakery, a Latino nightclub, and a run-down sports bar to provide Kate with vital information and clues. Every step of the way her financial state worsens and someone in her extended family interferes, but no matter how empty her bank account, how loud her family protests, or how much she annoys her clients, Kate refuses to be distracted from her goal: finding the truth in every case.

Fast paced and very funny, Kate McCall, Private Eye is a fresh, character-driven story featuring a fearless and impulsive young woman absolutely determined to make a success of her business on her own terms and in her own way. Written for fans of humorous fiction, as well as those who like imperfect female PIs and quirky cases, this lighthearted series will also appeal to anyone who enjoys a great read, memorable characters and a happy ending.
