These SNAPSHOTS are indeed as varied as the photos that lay in your own drawer at home. Martin’s snaps are words from the life she lived growing up on a Bracey, Virginia farm to Virginia Beach to Manhattan, New York to time spent across country, around the world, and back to holding events in the Dairy Barn on the farm. Her adventures in the big cities as a literary agent and executive producer for television are balanced between recipes from her passion of cooking for friends.
As her spirituality grows, so does her intensity of life. Dreams play a major role as she executive produces the series of The Power of Dreams for the Discovery Channel, interviewing names that every household recognizes.
Martin is a woman who has lived a fascinating life by making things happen, by following her intuition, listening to her dreams, and doesn’t mind talking about it. This is a fabulous read that will inspire others to go ahead, step out, and take a chance on life. I LOVE THIS BOOK!

CASSANDRA AND THE GI P.I. vol. 3 by Meriwether Shipley
The saga moves along in this Dupont Circle mystery, as does the Cassandra/Harry relationship. We learn a bit more about Harry’s background, the youth and childhood that gives him the foundation he thrives on now, as they continue to prepare for the Big Day. . .the wedding.
In the meantime, we step back into the Civil War period as Cassandra, Harry, and best buds, Chris and Mother, drive to Cinque Terra to help a wounded warrior. The mental wounds seem to be more difficult to heal. This is what Harry does, helping to heal those who suffer like he does.
Harry is a busy man. He also has this new interest in the theatre he bought. Cousin Bill is helping him with that, along the way of falling in love. There is a possibility of an explosion in that area, since an art expert has stepped into the arena.
Really, what’s all this about Panama? It’s connection to Washington, D.C.? I anxiously await for Volume 4.
