I've enjoyed all of Debbie Macomber's books, including this Cove series, but this one was so ho hum to the point of being boring. I'm surprised the characters in the book didn't fall off the pages in a dead sleep. Too much of it was repeating the things from previous books. There was nothing exciting in it to make me want to read the next one in the series.
I really enjoyed this book about several generations of a family in Alaska. It also had some interesting information about dog sledding, the diptheria epidemic in 1925, the Alcan highway, and the Iditarod.
Nina - a third child in a society where families are allowed only two children - has been betrayed by the boy she loved, and arrested by the Population Police for exposing other alleged third children.
This is a pretty entertaining book. It's about a family who have been the keepers of a very large uncut diamond. Add in a senator, a Viet Nam war hero, a Nazi collaborator among others who are all chasing after the mythical stone. Not a bad story line with a little mystery, a little romance, and some fictional history. Nope, not bad at all.
I really enjoyed this 2nd book in this series. Mojo, the new p.i., has dead (friendly) people who help her solve murders. Her gorgeous cop boyfriend often comes to the rescue when Mojo gets herself in a fix. The book is funny in parts and also steamy.
I liked this book well enough to read it to the end. It deals with family relationships - a man, a woman and their 2 daughters. The husband and wife get very caught up with living and find out later they have drifted apart. The story is about how they find themselves and what really is the most important to them.
This is a story about the abiding love within families. Daisy and James Tucker had a wonderful home and life in Wyoming until their 3 year old son disappeared without a trace. Daisy took her daughter and went back east. 13 years later her daughter takes off across country to find her home and father in Wyoming.
Sam Kinkade is a minister in rural Toms Brook, VA. Elisa Marinez has come to Toms Brook to hide. She's been accused of murdering her husband in their homeland Guatemala. Sam and Elisa are drawn together in friendship and love.

With the warmth and comfort of a handmade quilt, Enless Chain explores the intricate patterns of family and community, and the threads that bind them together.
This is a collection of the effective rules that Ron clark used to become an extraordinary teacher. It's mostly about manners and respecting self and others. I've taught school for more than 20 years and have put into practice many of Ron Clark's ideas long before he compiled them into this book. The book would be good for beginning teachers, especially.

No one ever really paid close attention to faces of the missing children on the milk cartons. Janie Johnson glanced at the face of the ordinary little girl - she felt overcome with shock. It was herself.
