My Mama Told Me Book Review

I finished another book on my Kindle.  I read My Mama Told Me by Sade C. Morrison.  This book is the first of three novels from Sade Morrison, and I have to say I enjoyed it.  In some instances it could be a Tyler Perry novel, starring Medea and her daughter.  

The main characters in the book are Naomi and her mother Gloria.  The setting is Detroit.  Naomi is ambitious, has a master’s degree, drives a Jaguar and lives in a wealthy neighbor.  Her life is far from the working class neighborhood where she was raised.  That life seems to be beneath her now and has created a distance between Naomi and her family.  

Gloria, Naomi’s mother, is a churchgoing woman who’s career was raising her daughter and making a home for her family.   She’s a southern cook, soul food recipes are her specialty, believes in the Lord and lives a simple life. 

Naomi’s life is turned upset down when a secret from her husband’s past surfaces.  She decides to leave him and the life she has become accustomed to and file for divorce. She heads home to her mother until she can figure out a plan and get back on her feet.  During her stay, she finds comfort in her mother and learns that her mother had endured a painful incident in her marriage too.  Her mother also suffers a heart attack.  Gloria helps Naomi by having heart to heart conversations with her and attempts to bring her back to her roots and the strong foundation she was raised on.  

All and all, I thought it was a good first novel by this author.  I would and will download another book in the future and see what it brings.  I recommend the book.  

Kindle e-Book Review – The Prince’s Nanny

I must be into romance this year.  I seem to be downloading quite a few romance novels on my Kindle.  The Prince’s Nanny is no exception.  Without giving too much away, Sabrina West, who is a nanny in her stepmother’s agency has been chosen for an assignment in Italy for the twin
daughters of the Prince of Savoy.
  The twins prove to be a handful, but Sabrina is determined to take on the challenge.  Little did she know that she would fall in love with the twins and their father, the Prince of Savoy.

To complicate matters, the Prince is engaged to another woman.  Sabrina struggles to remain professional and perform her duties as the children’s nanny, afterall nannies aren’t suppose to fall in love with their employers.     

The author does an excellent job of getting you absorbed in the beauty of the Prince’s Villa, the country side and fashion worn by the elite in Italy.   It’s a great read for those days that you just want to relax.  If you’re one of those who can’t sleep on the plane, download it before you head to the airport.  I downloaded it free on Amazon as a Prime Member, for those who don’t have a Prime Membership it’s $2.99.
