When a pair of charming bluebirds chose a decorative bird house in my garden to raise a family, they provided me with hours of enjoyment. I was fortunate enough to get some incredible pictures.


I hope you enjoy sharing the book and the story with your children. 

Some of my littlest fans are pictured below.

A sampling of reviews:  I'd love to read your  review on

THE PRICE OF REVENGE - I am grateful for the heartwarming response. Here are some of the 5 star reviews: 

Yes It's Really That Good

About three o'clock this afternoon I opened up Boehm's newest book. I don't what I expected from The Price of Revenge. But five hours later I have just finished reading it straight through. Yes, it's really that good!

I read this book in two days. It was captivating.

This book was very well written. It's a story of struggle, courage and survival. I really struggled to stop myself from skipping to the end to see if the heroine survived. I think it would make an excellent movie.

Couldn't stop reading

This book kept me on the edge of my seat as I was drawn into the life of Cathy and her escape from her past. The Price of Revenge is a book I’d recommend because I felt like I was right there urging Cathy in her run for freedom.

Missing on Maple Street - Judge's comment in a state-wide competition.  

Missing is a thoroughly delightful mystery in which not just one but two different yet similar primary conflicts find resolution, along with many minor resolutions achieved in the lives of the characters. The book is a supreme example of what makes a good mystery, what makes a reader read on and ask for more.

Below is the first (and unsolicited) review for BEYOND SECOND CHANCES. 

I am so happy that Ms. Boehm decided to continue Lindsay's story. As with her other 2 novels, this book is filled with intrigue, romance and characters that are interesting, likable and believable. I didn't want the story to end! Beyond Second Chances is thoroughly enjoyable and I look forward to more works by Ms. Boehm; she has become one of my favorite authors!

"What a well written surprise from a new author!!! After the first few pages you’re drawn into Lindsey’s life wondering where her story is going, never knowing who the good guys are. Nothing “inevitable” or “instinctive”!! No message, just suspense. One of the best books I've recently read."
