A very beautiful and touching book indeed.i was presently surprised to find out that it was a Christian novel.i think the author did a great job on keeping focus on what the characters main goal was.i believe the character was sometimes a bit hard to comprehend but maybe our age gap is just too g...

"Tubal Cain, the Father of Cutting Instruments"This is the first book of the Joe Hunter series that I have read - and I usually am not a fan of series books. If you don't read the whole series, you feel like you came into the middle of the movie and missed the best part.But in the case of DEAD ME...

Jimmy Lee Hickam is a young man whose sad family life is only topped by the poverty and depression of his southeastern Ohio hometown.

The Abigail Affair (2000)
3.1 of 5 Votes: 1
I downloaded this about a week ago as it was listed as free on Amazon ( it's now £1.25) so it was a bit of a bargain really and the synopsis and positive reviews really drew me in. Normally I quite like thrillers but this one just didn’t do it for me, it didn’t really grip me until the last chapt...
Cartels and Combinations (2010)
3.12 of 5 Votes: 1
There were a lot of different back-stories and plotlines at the beginning, so it took me a bit to get into it, but overall I liked it. I like the comparision between drug cartels, sex trafficking, etc and the secret combinations of bad guys in the Book of Mormon. It seemed a bit far-fetched at ti...
Take it Like a Mom (2011)
3.26 of 5 Votes: 5
Your basic chick lit about a mom and her friends, her problems with other moms, her problems with her own mom, her husband's layoff and consideration of whether she should go back to work. While the story was pretty straightforward chick lit, there was something about this book and the main char...
This Twentysomething Life: A sort-of prequel to This Thirtysomething Life (2013)
3.14 of 5 Votes: 4
I downloaded this short story from Google Play Books. It's way too short. I know why it's short, I wasn't expecting it to be this short. Anyhow, I laughed so hard and felt so much for Harry, it felt almost like the relationship I have with my bf, whom I love to death. His wife also seems to be su...
Anybody Any Minute (2008)
3.5 of 5 Votes: 4
3 and 1/2 StarsThis book was so much fun. I do so love a character-driven novel and the story in this one truly took a backseat to the characters. Ellen is a former flower child with a mouth that runs away with her and often lands her in water way over her head. But she keeps bobbing up, tryin...
Night with a Perfect Stranger: The Conversation that Changes Everything (2012)
4.32 of 5 Votes: 4
It's my fault, I just do not have enough faIth to believe that you can meet Jesus in the middle of the road with a tank of diesel because you run out of gas and you even went to dinner with him six years before. Maybe I'm not American enough, maybe being Italian and gone to the "vatican church" f...
Capitol Hell (2012)
3.22 of 5 Votes: 3
I like chick lit books, but this was really, REALLY bad writing. Unbearable, in fact. Exclamation points everywhere (and I love exclamation points!) to the point of distraction, unvaried vocabulary, and yes, I get it, you're from the Midwest and everyone from there is also a god-send. I wanted a ...
Blown Coverage (2008)
3.94 of 5 Votes: 4
I was drawn to the book to see how well a retired NFL jock could write. The writing wasn't too bad and the plot had lots of twists and turns. In my rating, rarely does a novel exceed three stars, so this isn't an awful novel. It is loaded with too much Christian context while the good guys are ki...
Just Dial 911 for Assistance (2000)
2.15 of 5 Votes: 2
As a dispatcher I thought this would be a fun read. However, I was a little disappointed in the grammatical errors, somewhat unbelievable characters and lack of solid ending for the book. I really enjoyed the story at first and that's what kept me coming back. But nothing takes me out of a story ...
Medals In The Attic (2010)
3.84 of 5 Votes: 5
This is the second book in the Annie's Attic series written by different authors. It is a sort of cozy mystery series and while I am not a cozy mystery fan, I do like this series. I would have read this before some of the later books but I ordered it through interlibrary loan last April and final...

I haven't read Teacher, Teacher and was pleasantly surprised that I could read the sequel without any issues. This book was given to me by a friend and I started it straight away.This is basically an autobiography of Jack Sheffield and depicts his tales as a Head Teacher at a village school in Yo...
