Luckiest Person On The Plate

I am currently worried about lake monsters. You know what that means!!! We are going camping at the lake this weekend. I love camping season even if I always spend a lot of the time worrying about monsters coming out of the water to eat my baby bassets. I have no clue why I have such a fear of water monsters. That includes sharks, which are awful creatures.  I never had an experience that would cause me to have such a fear. Although there was that one time I was snorkeling with my sister when I was a kid and a huge fish lunged at me from a crevice in the rocks. Come to think of it, it was a pretty big fish, and I do recall screaming at the top of my lungs and swimming as fast as I could to get out of the water. Oh dear. That might have been the start of it.  What’s interesting is now that I am looking back, I realize I spent a lot of time swimming in waters filled with seals. You know… Great White shark’s favorite snack. I am lucky it was only a fishy that jumped at me. I was hanging out on a sharks plate and never encountered one. I’m staying out of the water. I might have used up all my “Get Out Of Being The Sharks Meal” cards. I know what you are thinking. Sharks are not in lakes. I disagree. Sharks are sneaky jerks and could very well go to a lake to get me and my family. So there!

Apart from War (Still Life with Memories Bundle Book 2)
by Uvi Poznansky
5.0 Stars (5 Reviews)
Genre: History

FREE for a limited time

This bundle contains three volumes of the Still Life with Memories series, featuring the love story and adventures of Lenny and Natasha during WWII:

The Music of Us
In 1970, Lenny can no longer deny that his wife is undergoing a profound change. Despite her relatively young age, her mind succumbs to forgetfulness. Now, he goes as far back as the moment he met Natasha during WWII, when he was a wounded warrior and she — a star, brilliant yet illusive. Natasha was a riddle to him then, and to this day, with all the changes she has gone through, she still is.

“Digging into the past, mining its moments, trying to piece them together this way and that, dusting off each memory of Natasha, of how we were, the highs and lows of the music of us, to find out where the problem may have started?”

To their son, Ben, that may seem like an exercise in futility. For Lenny, it is a necessary process of discovery, one that is as tormenting as it is delightful. He often wonders: can we ever understand, truly understand each other — soldier and musician, man and woman, one heart and another? Will we ever again dance together to the same beat? Is there a point where we may still touch?

Dancing with Air
Fooling Nazi espionage may cost Lenny the trust of the girl who captured his heart. Will Natasha discover his secret D-Day reports, disguised as love letters to another woman?
In these letters, Lenny gives the enemy misleading information about allied plans. Once Natasha arrives in London, he takes her for a ride on his Harley throughout England, from the White Cliffs of Dover to a village near an underground ammunition depot in Staffordshire. When he is wounded in a horrific explosion, she brings him back to safety, only to discover the other woman’s letter to him. Will love survive the test of war?

In the past Natasha wrote, with girlish infatuation, “He will be running his fingers down, all the way down to the small of my back, touching his lips to my ear, breathing his name, breathing mine. Here I am, dancing with air.” In years to come, she will begin to lose her memory, which will make Lenny see her as fragile. “I gather her gently into my arms, holding her like a breath.” But right now, she is at her peak. She is ready to take charge of the course of their story.

Marriage before Death
After D-Day, her photograph appears on the most-wanted Nazi propaganda posters. Who is the girl with the red beret? She reminds him of Natasha, but no, that cannot be. Why does Rochelle step into his life when he is lead by SS soldiers to the gallows? At the risk of being found out as a French Resistance fighter, what makes her propose marriage to a condemned man?

Out Of Hibernation

I am certain my neighbors have missed the crazy haired lady in the grey robe. Lucky for them they got to see her last night. I am currently at war with the neighbor’s cat. The fuzzy devil has been pooping on my lawn everyday for the last two weeks. I am sorry, but I hate that cat. A surge of rage runs through my body when I open the door and see him/her darting off my lawn looking all relieved and done with business. The jerk doesn’t understand the human language, but I am certain he / she gets the idea of what I am saying by the crazy mad tone, and the waving of the arms. I cleaned eight poops off my lawn yesterday before I could mow it. I already hate mowing, so adding poop cleaning puts me right over the edge. Even though I am as pale as Snow White, I do not whistle while I work. I curse and grumble while I mow. Hubby seems to be enjoying my little battle, and every chance he gets he tells me the cat is on the lawn. Last night he informed me the cat was near and he wasn’t sure if it was coming or going. I flew off the couch so fast I don’t think I even touched the floor. Out the door I went, crazy hair at full height, grey robe swooshing behind me like a cape, and polka dot fuzzy socks adding that certain something something to the whole ensemble. Crazy neighbor was never missing, she was only in hibernation for the Winter.

Pavel Rostin has taken too many chances. Once a promising physicist, he abandoned science for finance and risked everything on a speculative venture. Careless and rogue, he gambled with his personal relationships. As Pavel tries to pick up the pieces of his life, a call from Russia informs him that his father is dead.

When Pavel follows his father’s footsteps trying to solve the mystery of his death, he turns up some inexplicable clues. The investigation draws him deeper and deeper into his family’s past – and his country’s future. From starving 1941 Leningrad to free-wheeling Moscow of the mid-1990s to bubbly 2006 Wall Street, Pavel uncovers a web of money, murder, revenge and evidence of a plot involving the world’s superpowers. The choices of right and wrong don’t look as clear cut as in newspaper headlines. But is he just a pawn in someone else’s game?

The Metronome is the first book in The Counterpoint trilogy and a prequel to the earlier published The Great Game. The last book in the trilogy, The Outer Circle, will be published in April of 2015. The Great Game and The Metronome are largely independent, with only a minor overlap amongst the characters. The Outer Circle brings the heroes of the two earlier books together to conclude their journey.
