This installment of "Rapid Reviews" includes five titles which run the gamut from Maine to Nova Scotia to Newfoundland and then Canada in general. One is pure fiction, another a combination of memoirs/fiction, one is of Nova Scotia beaches, another about the late Newfoundland musician Ron Hynes, and lastly a reference book on the history of policing in Canada.
The coming of spring brings with it many new book releases and the 'read' stack here at the Miramichi Reader is getting high. So I have resorted to writing some 'rapid reviews' of books that I have read and that do not require a lengthy article to summarize them. This works particularly well for non-fiction titles and I have two that I would like to incorporate.
