The Single-Handed Sailing Business
Captain Lyman Stuart
Captain Lyman Stuart imparts on us over a decade of experience running a sailing business in The Single-Handed Sailing Business! Stuart is very practical in his guide, walking us through each step of the sailing business from everything it takes to even start, running the business with lessons and logistics, and even to how to end the business when you’re ready to move into a different chapter in life. Everything was wonderfully organized and I felt Captain Stuart’s passion and expertise poured into each segment! As someone who fell in love with sailing myself, it was really cool to see things from a very different perspective. If you love sailing or are starting a business (this book is focused on sailing but I feel like it has good advice for any business), definitely turn your tiller to come check this one out!
James Montgomery takes us on a really fun lighthearted romantic adventure in Buckskin Cody! Amanda and Zack are trying to launch their clothing brand without any money, so they’re extremely thankful when a convict on the run agrees to model for them for free, provided they harbor him. It’s a deal that works out great…until their brand begins to gain national notoriety. Montgomery’s plot is just whacky and fun, always throwing you a curveball to keep things fresh! I loved the characters and just constantly found myself smiling in this one, whether it was because of some funny situation or a heartwarming moment. If you love romantic comedies with plenty of humorous situations, come hide out with Buckskin Cody!
Tosho is Dead
Opal Edgar brings us a grim and imaginative fantasy with Tosho is Dead! Growing up in post World War II Berlin, Tosho is desperately trying to escape his father’s Nazi legacy. When he is abruptly murdered, Tosho finds himself in a strange otherworld, one populated by the victims of hate crimes, where he must learn to sacrifice for others. This is a deep book, and I especially loved Tosho’s personal journey over time as he learned people’s value and gained the strength to sacrifice for others! The other world was imaginative and the villains quite villainous, but it really was the moral and emotional struggle that drew me in the most. If you love young adult fantasy with a darker trend and a lot of depth, come survive death in Tosho is Dead!
