Lightening by Bonnie S. Cahoun

This is an interesting book that is the second book in the series.  It is helpful, but not absolutely necessary to have read the first book or the novellas that are a part of the series.
     It tells the story of Selah and her re-connection with her real father and how this affects her previous family.  She is having issues with him as well as with her own body.  She is having trouble handling everything that is going on around her.
     This is a great book for those who like science fiction books and you will find yourself wanting to see what will happen next.
     I received this book free to review from the publisher.

Every Girl Gets Confused by Janice Thompson

Katie and Brady seem like the perfect couple as they work at a bridal shop together, but she finds herself somewhat torn between Brady and her ex-boyfriend Casey.  Katie had to work at keeping up with everything that is going on at the store, getting ready for her grandmother's wedding, and trying to decide on a groom of her own.
     I liked how the author kept the story lighthearted and well as grounded.  Katie had some big decisions to make all the while having to continue keeping up with the rest of her life.  This is a fun story and while it can be read alone, it makes a great follow up to Every Bride Needs a Groom.
     I received a copy of the book from the publisher free to review.

The Christmas Joy Ride by Melody Carlson

I love stories about travel and friendship.  Joy is taking a trip from Chicago to Phoenix in her RV.  She is leaving her home in Chicago and moving in to an assisted living center.  Her family expect her to fly, but she has other ideas.  Her friend Melanie decides to travel with her so she doesn't have to travel alone.
     I loved seeing the adventures that they got into along the way and all the interesting people that they meet.  I would love the chance to go on a trip like this with someone to keep me company and to do things with along the way.  This book was an easy read that kept you wanting to see what they would encounter next.

Keeping Christmas by Dan Walsh

A heartening tale of a couple who do not feel like celebrating and decorating for Christmas.  The wife is very depressed since all the children have left home and just can't find it in her to decorate.  The husband tries to help her out by bring up some of the more memorable handmade ornaments, but she keeps resiting.  What takes place to change things is a sacrifice on the husband's part.
     While I can sympathize with the wife, not wanting to just decorated for the two of them, I felt like she should have given in some when the husband want to help.  It can be hard to want to carry on traditions when you feel like the people you normally celebrate with are not around to celebrate with.
     I was given a copy of this book to read for free from the publisher.
