Is Ten Million Dollars Worth It?

This book kept me hooked til the end. Jared Neaton, broke off from a large law firm and started out on his own. He lost alot in a big case and is not quite sure how he will recover. The opportunity of  a lifetime comes up, but are the risks too great?  Erin Larson's father passed away. While going through his safe deposit box she finds a deposit slip for ten million dollars. The glitch? No one claims to know anything about it. No one ever heard him talk of the money; he did not live like a rich man; and the bank claims the deposit was never made.  After several lawyers, threats to her life, vandalism, and dead ends can Erin get anyone else to take the case?  Even with all the risks involved Jared goes out on a limb. But it is not just about the money, to Jared it is much more.  Knowing from personal experience how a parents choices affect a child, Jared has to find out for Erin where her father got the money and why he chose to keep it. Even if it costs him his business, family, a

A Mysterious Identity

Adventurous Ellie Moore finds herself  jobless in the midst of a Chicago winter. In dire need of a way to support herself, she applies for a job with the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Although she has no previous detective skills, the company in a bit of a bind to find a woman agent agrees to hire her on a trial basis. Ellie travels off to Arizona disguised as an older widowed woman Lavinia. During the process of her investigation she is forced to alter her disguise to also accommodate Lavinia's young and vibrant niece Jesse Monroe. She becomes very fond of Steven Pierce the mine owner whose silver is being stolen. Playing two parts becomes a bit tricky and she is no longer safe from the silver thieves. What should she do?  Does she reveal her true identity, and if so is it too late for love? I really enjoyed this book. It was not easy to figure out who was stealing the silver. And although kind of obvious from the beginning that the mine owner would fall in love with her, it

A Fun Weekend Read

Short-Straw Bride by Karen Witemeyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars This book was pure enjoyment. This book has alot of humor, a bit of romance and is lots of fun! Yes, you can sort of tell where the story is going, how its going to end, etc... etc... But if you want a relaxing to read, exciting book to get lost in. This is one of those book. I would certainly recommend it. I read it in a few days. The basic plot starts out with a young girl, Meredith, caught trespassing on Archer property. Years later, for completely different reasons she is caught trespassing again. But this time to return an act kindness. Being there complicates her life immensely but is also her dream come true. As the title entails she becomes the short-straw bride, but not for the reasons she suspects. Now she must learn to trust her new husband and he must learn to trust her. Will this marriage develop love or just be a marriage of convenience? I hope you will read the book. This is the first time I have read a

YOU Need JESUS... Just Sayin'

People need Jesus! Neighbors, Friends, Co-workers, Students.... Everywhere we look there are those who are searching for answers. What can we offer?? The only answer to every problem any one has ever had. JESUS School is getting back in gear.  What better way to equip our children to share Jesus with their friends than to supply them with useful, attention getting, question asking, school supplies.  Dayspring has the most amazing collection of school supplies available as witnessing tools.  I received the     YOU NEED JESUS. I'M JUST SAYING   collection of binders, composition notebooks, folders, and spiral notebooks from Dayspring for review. I requested the blue and gold collection because those are the local school colors. My children are home schooled, but I want them to reach out to help others find Jesus.  I shared my collection with some new young girls who have recently moved here and started coming to church.  I do pray doing so will not only be an encouragem

The Guest Book - Review and GIVEAWAY

What if you returned to a place in your past... and discovered your future.  That is what happens to Macy. She has not been to the Guest house in ten years. On her last summer there, she drew a picture in the Guest Book and left a note. Would she ever return?  During her childhood Macy went to Sunset Beach every year with her family. After loosing a find-the-best-sea-shell contest one year her father comforted her by purchasing a set of colored pencils for her to draw a picture in the guest book since she has too young to write. Every year after that she corresponded with another artist by way of drawings. After her father passed away during her teen years, she went back to the guest house one more time. Because of all the memories of her time there with her father it was too much for her family so they left and never went back .... until now! Macy's life has changed dramatically, as has her mother's and brother's. In a sense this return is a kind of closure for them, a

All her business savvy and elite connections don’t make a difference; she has lost control. Who will save her? Xavier, her predatory boyfriend? Or Candice, the Down syndrome waitres
