The year is 2039, and Jack Fisher is the last living survivor of the Holocaust. Set in a world that is abysmally complacent about events of the last century, Jack is a 100-year-old man whose worst memories took place before he was 5. His story hearkens back to the Jewish ghetto of his birth and to Auschwitz where, as a little boy, he had to fend for himself to survive after losing his family. Jack becomes the central figure in a missing-person investigation when his granddaughter suddenly disappears. While assisting police, he finds himself in danger and must reach into the darkest corners of his memory to come out alive.Continue reading

Last year, my husband and I went to Tanta, a Peruvian restaurant here in Chicago and they served us a wonderful dip with fresh plantain chips. We asked the chef for the ingredients and then set out to recreate the recipe at home. This recipe uses two of our favorite Peruvian ingredients – Huacatay and Aji Amarillo.Continue reading

Review & Giveaway: On a Night Like This by Barbara Freethy

Blog Image

On a Night Like This is book one in a new series from Barbara Freethy. The first books in new series not only have to deliver on the promised romance, but also introduce us to characters we’ll want to get to know better in later books. On a Night Like This delivers on both counts.

I enjoyed that this book was based on a story line that could happen in real life and included a mystery or two that will, hopefully, play out over the course of the series.Continue reading
