Bette has a gifted way with words – #bookreviewer Salute

Sue reviews The Loft on Goodreads –

For anyone that knows me and my love of books and authors, they will be well aware that Bette Lee Crosby is one of my favorite authors who I can’t wait to start writing her next book. Her books are so life like and so real. Her characters are so well rounded you never forget them.

This is book 2 in the series. I can honestly tell you that I didn’t have to go over book 1 to remind myself of what I had read months ago as her books are so memorable.

The Memory House Collection

Its an apt name, its a house that people always have to, need to, or must return to for one reason or another.

Ophelia is the old lady now. She is the one that helped Annie in many different ways.

I have also learnt things from these books, or should I say, from Ophelia herself.

We all have objects that we hold affection for. Her explanation of how we look at these objects of affection was very thought provoking to me. I didn’t think of things this way.

Am I going to explain that to you? Nope. When you come to read this book, remember my words, and you will pick up my understanding for sure.

She is a very wise woman Ophelia. They say wisdom comes in years, and this is true, but for me, Ophelia always had wisdom and a good way at looking and helping others, especially Annie.

The book starts off with Annie’s wedding. But life doesn’t always go to plan does it, we see this as we turn the pages.

Bette Lee Crosby has a gifted way with words and brings out thoughtful things. Each character that is from book 1 has developed even more, they have grown, but they still remain true to themselves.

Tragedy is a part of most people’s lives in one sense or another, and this family is not without theirs.

This author brings warmth to her pages, this authors brings hope, this author brings sense to life.

I have currently read book 3 in this series as a Beta read, and let me tell you, it just gets better and better

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
