Jacquie Biggar’s VIRTUALLY GONE #bookreview #thriller

A breath-stealing review for Virtually Gone by Staci Troilo. My heart is full ❤

Staci Troilo

Ciao, amici! I’ve got another review to share. This one’s by Jacquie Biggar. It’s a fast read, but it packs quite a punch.

My review:

Quick to read, long on my mind

Jacquie Biggar has done it again. Not that I’m surprised. This author not only never fails to entertain me, she does it with characters that burrow their way into my heart and take up permanent residence.

This is book six of the series, but I didn’t read all of the prior works and was able to follow the threads with no trouble, which is a testament to the author’s writing chops. She gave us just enough backstory to make sense of everyone’s history without weighing down the pacing.

National Poetry Month

A beautiful poem tribute to Sue Vincent shared by Kim on By Hook of by Book ❤

By Hook Or By Book


April is National Poetry Month, and after mulling over what I wanted to share for a first post to celebrate, I think I’ve come up with a perfect kickoff. As many of you know, we lost a very special member of our blogging community earlier this week, Sue Vincent. Not only was Sue an invaluable and supportive blogging friend, but she was a gifted painter and writer, so I thought sharing one of her beautiful poems would be a perfect way to begin this special month.

In jewel tones.

The darkness veils the stars, 

Yet their Light shines unseen,

But not unfelt

An ember of gold

In the shadows.

Now you remind us

To count all our blessings,

Holding them dear

For the little while.

You remind us too

That chivalry survives,

And the courage to laugh

In the face of tragedy.
