Hell and Back: A Walt Longmire Mystery By Craig Johnson: Review/Giveaway

by Cynthia Chow

When the man wakes up, he doesn’t know his name, where he is, or how he got there. A sign above an Industrial Indian Boarding School informs him that he is in Fort Pratt, but it’s a strangely familiar café waitress who tells him that he is in Montana. A band in the hat he’s wearing seems to indicate that it’s a gift to one Walt Longmire of Absaroka County, Wyoming, while the familiar-feeling gun in his holster is one issued to lawmen.

A Killing in Costumes By Zac Bissonnette: Review/Giveaway/Interview

by Cynthia Chow

Once they were the hottest '90s soap opera couple on television, merging their success as a singing duo into a real life marriage. But when Cindy Cooper and Jay Allan revealed the truth, as both came out of the closet, neither Hollywood nor middle-America were prepared to accept them. After divorcing but remaining best friends, Cindy went on to build an L.A. financial planning career and marry the woman who was the love of her life. Esther’s death led her to sell the business, move to Palm Springs, and join Jay in opening their dream memorabilia shop, appropriately called Hooray for Hollywood Movie Memorabilia.

by Kathleen Costa

I was introduced early to many British productions like The Avengers, but those Brit sitcoms and dramas were few and far between…until now!

No Triangles, Please

by Maddie Day

I’m delighted to be back at Kings River Life Magazine!
Let’s talk about triangles. A lovely geometric shape that occurs in nature; it can provide stability for a stool or a tripod, and more. But that’s not the kind of three-pointed shape I’m talking about.
