From Blue Skies to An Assassin

I have various thoughts going through my head as I reflect upon the last two stories I've read, both of completely different genres it makes my head spin.


The first is a title by Lance McCulloch titled, The Colors of Blue, a story set on Colorado's Tres Piedras Ranch. I could tell it was a beautiful place just by the descriptions McCulloch provided.


It touches on romance but it also reflects upon the various types of relationships we have in life, one no less important than the other. It also sends home the message that there are always blessings to come, no matter how bleak today may look.


The Assassin is the second book which I finished recently. In this story, I was introduced to Max Doerr, one of the best snipers an agency could hope to employ.


It is because of this skill that he was assigned to find and eliminate certain targets. However, Max questions one assignment in particular which later has him breaking a sweat.


Traveling from one continent to another, being the assassin he was trained to be, Max learns a few surprises along the way - even the identity of the man who murdered his son - and wonders, in the end, if he had been played.


Both of these books were enjoyable for different reasons. The Colors of Blue took me on a journey into the heart of nature at its best, introducing me to a few characters who have become dear to me.


The Assassin, on the other hand, introduced me to more than its fair share of unsavoury characters, showing human nature at its worst. Even so, the action and suspense made me keep turning pages; I just had to know what happened next.


You may want to read one of these titles or you might prefer to read something else. Whatever the case, I just wanted to present these titles to you in case you had not heard of them.


Whatever you decide to read when you pick up a book again, I wish you a wonderful journey.
