The Road Home by Beverly Lewis

I found it interesting to see how Lena Rose was able to work through her grief of not only losing her parents, but being separated from the rest of her family. I am unsure how I would feel about having to move away and begin a new life and have so many changes all at once.  I enjoyed reading the book and liked how Lena Rose was able to continue trusting and let thing work out the way they needed to , not necessarily the way she wanted them to.

Lethal in Old Lace by Duffy Brown

I really enjoyed this book and the setting of Savannah really added to it.  I loved loved the characters and their southern charm.  It was interesting to see how Reagan was able to juggle her wedding with figuring out the mystery.  I can't imagine what it would be like to be a professional mourner, but can definitely see that as being a southern thing.

I enjoyed reading this book and getting using the pictures to come up with ideas for window box arrangements.  It was very informative and the step by step directions were very helpful.  It gave advice on what plants to pair together and had helpful pictures for many of the steps.

The Sea before Us by Sarah Sundin

I loved learning history through historical fiction.  This book gave me an opportunity to to see a woman's part in the war as part of the story focused on Dorothy's service of putting together reconnaissance photographs to create a map of Normandy.  I was interesting to see how the technology of the time period allowed them to put something like this together.  I also enjoyed seeing how the relationship between Dorothy and Wyatt progressed as they worked together to provide what was needed leading up to D-Day.

High Treason is a book that will keep you reading.  FBI Special Agent Kord Davidson and CIA operative Monica Alden find themselves tasked with protecting Saudi Prince Omar bin Talal.  This becomes more complicated when they find out that the prince is not just there for him mother's cancer treatment, but also to negotiate some some stronger business ties between the US and his country.
      I really enjoyed reading this book and liked seeing the interaction between the main characters.  They had to learn to get over each other's role in the protective detail and learn to work together.  I liked seeing how they worked out their differences as well as trying to figure out who the bad guy was and what the motive was.

Storm Surge by Christy Barritt

Cassidy is still trying to stay under the radar as she awaits to testify, but as a mysterious raft shows up, she can't help but to get involved. I think I too would find it hard to keep silent if I were in Cassidy's shoes and it would be my luck that the more under the radar I tried to be, the more things would happen to draw the spotlight on me.   Loved the book and look forward to the next one.
