My Review of the Suspense Novel Lawful Deception

A few weeks ago I received an advance copy of the suspense novel Lawful Deception written by Pamela Samuels Young to give a review. I was so excited and overjoyed....doing a happy dance. I had met the author several times in the past at literary retreats offered by Ruth Bridges at Literary Sisters. This is her seventh novel and the fifth in the series.

Pamela Samuels Young has written another page turning suspense novel Lawful Deception. Once again we are reacquainted with Attorney Vernetta Henderson and her adversary Girlie Cortez, as well as Vernetta's friend Special. As usual she has enlightened us on a subject, that we had no idea or only a vague inkling could be going on. This novel has more than interesting plot. How did Bliss do what she did? Who committed the murder? The sad thing about the author's novel is you will read it in a short period of time, then you realize you will have a long wait until she writes and releases her next book.

Hosta Still Going to Bloom

While I was away in Virginia the deer decided to make a feast out of the beautiful large hostas that are growing at the corner of my house. What a disappointment it is to see that site when I drive up to the front of the house.

But, this week the hostas are budding to bring forth flowers. The missing leaves are still unsightly, but the flowers will bring forth some joy.

It is a never ending battle trying to keep the deer at bay from eating up all the plantings. We have treated everything with egg and water, at the moment it is working.

An Afternoon in Washington, DC


During my trip to Northern Virginia earlier in the month, my family spent an afternoon in Washington DC.

Our trip started off with two of my daughters and two grandchildren handing out cupcakes leftover from my granddaughter’s high school graduation party to the homeless in a DC park.

The Capital Building with a display of bones. The piles of bone displays were there to bring an awareness of genocide and the holocaust. 


I don’t know the name of this building, but I think it has interesting architecture.

The main objective of our visit to DC was to spend time in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum.

The highlight of the trip for me was seeing this balloon. I had seen it many years ago and I wanted to see it again.

There is so much to see and do in DC, it is a wonderful place to explore. No matter how many times I have been there, I always discover something I haven’t seen before.
