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.

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.

The Essential 55: An Award-Winning Educator's Rules for Discovering the Successful Student in Every Child
Review Date: 8/23/2006
Helpful Score: 5


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.
