Robert and his best friend Margaret, better known as Max, can't believe their luck when they find an ad that says that they can earn $5,000 in a month. The two kids will be selling Cash-in-Advance cookies, which sounds like a lot more fun than their latest money-earning tactics: shoveling horse manure and taking care of troublesome pets. But soon after they start their great new job, Robert and Max find out that cookie-selling can be risky!

Whose baby is it? Three months ago, Isabel Baker's life came crashing down after her husband confessed he'd fallen in love with another woman-her sister-and that they'd had a child together. Then tragedy strikes, and Isabel's sister and husband are killed, leaving baby Tony with just her sister's husband, Ben. Now Isabel is faced with a terrible decision. Telling the truth would mean taking Tony from the only father he's ever known, but how can she possibly lie? She's shocked to dicover that Ben doesn't have any such qualms. He's determined to keep what remains of his family intact-no matter what. Which is why he's trying to convince Isabel that together they could make the perfect parents for Tony. . . .

Review Date: 8/17/2005


Geordi La Forge and his fellow cadets are headed to Atlantis Station, the underwater research base located near a volcano in the Atlantic Ocean. Up until now Geordi has spent most of his life in space with his Starfleet officer parents and he is more than ready to explore this strange, new world deep underwater. The first stop for the cadets is the above-ground complex on Isla del Feugo, where the students barely escape a small volcanic eruption. They finally arrive at the underwater station shaken and fighting among themselves, but determined to carry out their assignments. Then suddenly an earthquake rocks the station and the cadet are trapped in their lab with tempers running high. Now, as debris blocks their path back to the aquashuttle, Geordi and the others, together, must race against time and the dangers of the freezing seawater to escape the station before it disappears into an underwater abyss!

Annie returns home to help her family's beekeeping business, but her dad went to the hospital, so Annie had to run the business on her own. Will Jennings wanted to see the beekeeping business called Ambrosia Apiary. I learned a lot about the beekeeping business. This was a great mystery figuring out who was setting the fires and the romances in the story. I couldn't put the book down.

The tragedies continue in the fourth volume of the Bride of Deimos. In the first chapter, Minako is transported back to the time of the Gods and through the eyes of Venus; she serves as a witness to a couple's betrayal. And where adulterous deities travel, chaos is sure to follow. A severed hand, a ghost looking for love and a tragic tale of a murder are awaiting Minako and her teacher when they are forced to seek shelter at an old mansion, in Chapter 2. What do the death of one fellow student and the arrival of a bloodthirsty newcomer have in common?
This was a very good book that shows love, sorrow, and the tradgeies of some lives.
