Through the Shadows by Karen Barnett

This is the third book in the San Francisco series and very enjoyable.  I liked learning about the life there after the earthquake and the issues that faced the people. Some were things you would think of, while others surprised me.
     Elizabeth is trying to help out those who are less fortunate, but sometimes finds herself over her head.  She finds herself teaming up with Charles who is an attorney, but is not sure just how much to really share about herself.
      I would recommend this book for a great read and to learn a bit about history as well.
     I received a copy of the book to read and review from the publisher.

Killerball at Honeychurch Hall by Hannah Dennison

I really enjoyed having a chance to read this book.  I love a good mystery and this one did not dissapoint.  Kit Stanford is just trying to do her job when she stubles across a mummy in the abandoned wing of the church.  As she tries to figure out what is going on she finds out all kinds of things about hidden chambers and unknown treasures.
     I had a hard time putting down this book to take care of other things and am planning to find the others in the series so that I can keep up with the characters.

They were Christians by Cristobal Krusen

In choosing this book, I was curious as to what people would be included besides the ones mentioned and some surprised me.  I was glad to see many names that I recognized in the book and how many came about their faith.  It is always great see influential people living their faith.  This book is a great encouragement especially in today's world as it gives hope that influential people can still let their faith be know weather they are bold or just having it a part of their everyday life.
     This is a great read and can be read in sections when you have time.

Every Bride has her Day by Janice Thompson

Every Bride has her day is a book by an author that I have come to enjoy.  Her books have this way about them that has you finishing the book before you know it because of how they flow.  In this book Katie Fisher is planning her wedding and like all things in Texas is it big.  She wants do things her way to make her day special, but feels like she needs to take into consideration the thoughts of her family and friends as well.  It was funny to see some of the things that came to light in this book as she tried to get it all together for the big day.

Murder Comes by Mail by A. H. Gabhart

I love cozy mysteries and this one was great.   It is book two in the Hidden Springs Mysteries, but it is ok to read first.  When photos of a dead girl begin arriving in the mail, the sheriff find himself concerned about just who the killer is and fears it is someone that he has had contact with before.  He finds himself racing the clock so that someone he knows does not become the next victim. 
     This was a great page turner and it was hard to not turn to the end of the book to see how it would all turn out.

The Gift of Friendship editied by Dawn Camp

This is a great collection of stories telling of friendships over time and how they became friends and how many of the friendships have stood the test of time.  It was great to see all these stories and be able to read a few at a time.  They were enlightening and great to read when you just needed some encouragement.

The 12 Brides of Summer - Novella Collection #2 by Mary Connealy, Amanda Cabot , and Maureen Lang

This is a great collection of stories where each one can be quickly read and you can save another for later.  I like stories in the past and this set did not disappoint.  I have read books by these authors before and it was great to get another story from them in this collection.  Each story has the characters coming together in unusual circumstances and each one has to learn to trust to make it all work out.

Wonderland by Amily Shen

I have been interested in the coloring book craze so I choose this book to see what it was all about.  This one had the added bonus of having content that I was familiar with, Alice in Wonderland.  The scenes were well drawn and easy to color.  The paper was nice as it was a bit thick to allow for the coloring.  It is divided up into sections that make it easy to follow along with the story, or to choose what you want to color that day.  It also has some extra things to do within the book besides enjoy the pictures and story.

Her One and Only by Becky Wade

This is a great series by Becky Wade and I like the military aspect that she has put into the books.  I enjoyed seeing Dru prove herself to her assignment, and I can see his concern for a woman to be "protecting" a big football player, but she holds her own.
     I liked the trust aspect of the book as it is always hard to put your trust in someone else when you feel you can do a better job on your own.

The Final Tap by Amanda Flower

The Final Tap by Amanda Flower is a great mystery.  Kelsey has invited an expert to come and teach a workshop on maple sugar.  He is not a well liked man but when he gets killed, it causes problems all around.  Kelsey has to solve the mystery before it shuts down the festival as well as Barton Farms as well. 
    I liked seeing how the Farm worked and the characters interacted.  It is always fascinating to see how people worked and lived in the past and to learn many of the activities still go on today.

Rx Murder by Richard Mabry

I had the pleasure of listening to this book and I really liked the way that you could tell what character was talking by the different voices used by the narrator.  The story itself had many twists and turns and did not end the way I thought it would.  Even though it is a short story that I was able to finish while doing work around the house, it still packed much information.  I would be pulling for one character and then there would be a twist.  I would recommend this book to read or listen to.  It is a quick listen/read and was very enjoyable.

A Flight of Arrows by Lori Benton

This is another great novel by Lori Benton that tells the story of how the past has come back to the future.  Twenty years Reginald stole a baby boy and raised him as his own.  Now that the truth has come to life, he has to deal with the consequences and with what people think of his actions.
     I would have had problems if this was something that had happened within my family. I am sure that at the time it seemed ok, but now he has to seek the forgiveness that is offered to him.  This is always hard to to, especially when you are confronted with the past on a constant basis.
