Musicians friend has the aubert violin bridge available which is absolutely beautiful! Musicians friend describes this as “Made in France. The Aubert Adjustable Violin Bridge features moveable feet which conform automatically to changes in the top curvature, achieving a precise fit without carving the feet.”

I think if you have someone who plays the violin that this would be an extra special and very thoughtful gift! Defnitely check out Musicians Friend and ALL of their violin’s and accessories!!

As some people know, I am in love with the tiny house movement and have been considering building my own. In doing so I have also been looking at awesome storage options to help keep things neat and tidy. My parents kitchen is also over 20 years old and in need of an update, so looking at kitchen stuff that is multipurpose, saves space, looks great and is functional has been something I have been doing. If you look at my YouTube you will see I have liked about a zillion organizing and tiny house videos recently. So, I was excited to stumble across this website, ovisonline.com

I had never heard of OVIS and when I clicked that link and saw the Kitchenaid Mixer on a pull out counter/shelf and baskets in drawers I was immediately in awe!!! I am so excited to start pinning ideas from this site and more importantly, excited for when I do get to do some reno’s (big or small) because there are definitely some amazing ideas that this company has come up with that I would absolutely LOVE to implement into my home!

If you are doing a kitchen renovation or are looking for more space leave me a comment and let me know if this site has given you any ideas!!!

Summary

In the exclusive enclave of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, a woman who builds custom guitars is murdered. A disgraced ex-cop turned private investigator is hired by the dead woman’s father and immediately becomes the target of a violent ex-convict. An enigmatic music star performs damage control on her links to the dead woman. And a professional killer who idolizes Keith Richards is brought into town by a mysterious employer.

My Review

Started and finished this book in a single day. I love when I get sucked into a book so quickly that I lose track of time! It has been awhile since I have really enjoyed reading and I am finding some awesome reads lately that are just sucking me straight in.
This was a suspense/mystery without much graphic so I consider it to be a fairly clean read. There was some moments but that was more than expected.
The story for me was quite unique having it be a private investigator rather than a police officer or another member of law being the one who is doing all the leg work and unraveling the mystery/story. I enjoyed the extreme use of humor in this book, it really made it feel like I was reading the thoughts of the narrator rather than just the actions, which was a lot of fun. I love that this story had me guessing as the pages turned. Definitely recommend it to anyone who is into crime novels!!

Summary

WINNER OF THE PINNACLE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD IN LITERATURE HISTORY!

A suspenseful novel filled with unbridled passions, jealousy, incest, murder, witchcraft and dark superstitions. Roots of Indifference is interwoven with the story of a prestigious family during the early 1900s, struggling with racial intolerance as they try to carve a place for themselves in a hostile land during the Mexican Revolution, World War 1, and The Great Depression. This fascinating novel brings to light the horrendous injustices inflicted upon the Mexican-Americans, who suffered cruel indignities and discrimination. It is a story that needs to be told about the turbulent times during those dark years of indifference.

My Review

This book is LONG but well written and it contains a lot of history that we don’t often think much about any more which I personally enjoy. The author does a good job building characters. I think that this is a book for people of all ages and that it would be welcome reading for school projects or book reports. This is a story of injustice, racism, wartimes and everything else that was going on in the early 1900’s. I absolutely love reading fiction that is so well done that you believe it to have actually happened as written and that is what Terri Ragsdale does, she brings us to the past and lets us live through her characters so we can understand how bad things were. A MUST READ!
