The Last Clinic by Darla by Gary Guisick

The book starts right away with a murder.   Rev Aldridge is shot whilst protesting outside an abortion/health centre.  The centre provides health care for women not just abortions and Aldridge and his fellow protestors are keen to close it down.  
Darla Cavannah, a detective, moved to Jackson with her pro footballer husband who was tragically killed in a vehicle accident.  Still grieving Cavannah was assigned to the case to solve the murder.

I am keen to see how the romance between Darla and Stephen progresses if indeed it does.  Perhaps we will find out in future releases.

I was drawn into the story from the beginning and found it difficult to put down, a sign of a good read. 
I received a review copy from Netgalley.

Canton Elegy

Stephen Ah Nom was born in China and aged 6 was sent, by his grandfather, to  the US to get a  good education.  On completion of his degree he was unable to gain employment because he was Chinese and so returned to China.   Stephen wanted his children and grandchildren to know about him and so he wrote what was in effect a really long letter to them.  He kept it hidden and it only came to light after his death.   This is one of the most heart warming memoirs I have ever read.  Canton Elegy was a wonderful read.  Stephen and his wife’s courage  is truly amazing.
