The Gruff-a restaurant review

Any book elf would fall in love with this restaurant.  Just start with the name! The Gruff refers to the Three Billy Goats Gruff. They worked hard to cross a bridge to find greener (and locally grown) grass on the other side.  

Book elves will be beguiled by the restaurant name and its atmosphere. Then, they will want to layer on the flavors of its menu: brick oven pizza, crispy waffle fries with homemade ketchup, sandwiches, salads, and house made soups.

It has been a long time since I have fallen so completely in love with a pizza.  This Italian Meat  version was the perfect combination of meat with fresh basil, red sauce and cheeses.

Located next to the Kentucky side of the Roebling Bridge in Covington, The Gruff is the perfect stop for lunch or dinner before you stroll along the Ohio River. Don’t forget to grab some dessert at the deli before you leave. We bulging book elves must keep up our image!


King’s Folly by Jill Williamson (a review)

Fantasy novels follow  cliche patterns of monarchies, prophecies, and a society filled with doom.  This tale is no exception.  However, Jill Williamson manages to entice the reader to give fantasy another perusal. She creates excitement with chilling scenes of witchcraft and child sacrifice. The characters are imperfect heroes living in a world that is literally crumbling away.  Some believe prophecies that explain how to escape while others choose to ignore the warning signs of peril.

King’s Folly is Book One of a planned trilogy called The Kinsman Chronicles. Ebooks are also available for the Kindle crowd.

I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for a review.
