Etched in Tears by Cheryl Holden

This is my first book in this series and it was enjoyable.  I can just imagine some of the artwork in the exhibit.  I love things made of glass.  In this book you get to imagine the artwork artwork and try to figure out  a mystery.  Savannah finds herself involved in the mystery of who killed Dennis, an artist who also has ties to her family.  As evidence comes to light, she feels more and more compelled to figure out what has happened.  A good mystery that will keep you guessing.

Vanishing Point by Lisa Harris

I've enjoyed watching this series unfold as it takes part from previous books, but has a story of its own as well.  This book will keep you reading and have you read the previous books if you have not done so as well.  Garrett does not feel that he has done all he can in the case he is working on and gets discouraged.  He pairs with Jordan, an FBI agent and together they find themselves working together to find out what happens before there is another victim.

Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano

Gertrude has her hands full as a companion to Mrs. Davenport.  She often finds herself cleaning up after her and trying to be discrete about it.  She hopes to have an uneventful summer, but soon realizes that won't happen as she finds herself right back in the middle of things as her employer wants to still be a part of the social scene.
     I think it would be interesting to be a companion to someone like Mrs. Davenport.  I would get a chance to be a part of things that I otherwise would not have a chance to experience.  It would be hard too, because I would be expected to do things that I might not realize were a part of my duties and also might overstep what I could do as well.

Murder at Chateau sur Mer (A Gilded Newport Mystery) by Alyssa Maxwell

I've enjoyed reading this series of books and taking a glimpse into the gilded age. It really gives a taste of how they live on both sides of the wealth.  Emma gets to be a part of both worlds as a reporter and a distant relation to the Vanderbilts. Emma seems to have a knack to be in the "right" place at the "right" time and has to unravel more than one mystery.  A great read and it really makes you feel like you are a part of the story. 

A Dangerous Legacy by Elizabeth Camden

I really enjoy this author and how she ties historical events with her stories.  In A Dangerous Legacy, Lucy does a great job of getting the news out, but soon finds herself with competition.  I liked how at first she had a bit of a completion with the newcomer, but soon finds herself working with him when things get out of hand.
    A great read and I look forward to more in the series.

That Last Weekend by Laura DiSilverio

A story of friendship and justice that will keep you reading.  A group of friends are getting together again after ten years trying to put the past behind them, but soon tragedy strikes again.  Laurel feels like she needs to uncover what is happening before it is too late, but is also fearful of just what exactly she will uncover.  The friends agree to uncovering the truth, but since most likely one of them is the one responsible, it makes it harder and harder to know who to trust and who to fear.

Another Wish by Annie Dobbs

I enjoyed reading this new series and enjoyed seeing how Haley and Mike were first kinda working against each other as they were not sure who exactly was causing what and then realized that they needed to work together to make things smooth for the wedding that they are a part of.   I liked Firefly Inn, its location and of course the cat (love books with cats in therm).  Looking forward to more in this series and to see what happens at the Inn next.

God gave us Family by Lisa Tawn Bergren (Author), David Hohn (Illustrator)

I love this series.  The pictures are so great and the story line is wonderful.  This book talks about all the different kinds of families and makes it a great read for a group as many will not have the same type of family.  It makes them all feel included and a part of the story.  I look forward to more of these books.
