Who isn't trying to make that dollar stretch a little farther these days? This book will definitely give you many ideas to help you do that. The author is the Financial Planning Correspondent for the Today Show so he knows what he is talking about.
If you like Amish romances with an original story, give this one a try. The hero and heroine could not be more different. Jude is a well educated, wealthy Southern man who is an unbeliever. Mary is a shy, poor Amish girl who has lived her whole life on Ice Mountain. There is a small Amish settlement that is very isolated and the people in it live more like they did a hundred years ago. There are a lot of twists and turns in the story to keep it very interesting. I loved the characters of Jude and Mary and the rest. All in all, it was a sweet romance and a great start to Kelly Long's Ice Mountain series.
I have read many good Amish romances and found this one to be especially well-written. The Beauty and the Beast theme was very interesting with Amish characters. If you want a good enjoyable read, give this one a try. It was the first book I have read by this author but it won't be my last.
This is an adorable little book with 63 pages of recipes for Main Dishes (Pasta, Vegetables, and Meats.) This is one of a series. The other ones are Breads, Desserts, Pies, Salads, and Soups. I wish that I had those also. The recipes are good.
Linda Castillo's newest book in her Kate Burkholder series is a fast paced excellent read like the two previous ones in this series. I believe it is the best one yet. Great characters and so many twists and turns make this a very riveting read--a true page turner.
This was a very enjoyable read like all of Fannie Flagg's books and I highly recommend it. The amazing story how one woman touched so many lives is a real page-turner and thought provoking story without getting "preachy". There is hardly a page that didnt't make me smile, chuckle or downright laugh out loud---a must read.
I discovered this author's suspense books this year and loved them. This was not suspense but a wonderful original Christmas story. The three main characters were Finn, the cab driver, Callie, an aging and sickly elderly woman and Sydney her granddaughter. It is such a great story with a big helping of humor and also many touching and thought provoking moments.It was one of those books that you don't want to stop reading because you want to see what happens next but hate to see the story end. I hope Ms Blackstock writes more stories about Finn and Sydney. I would love to read more about these delightful characters.
Although this book is for children, I enjoyed reading it too. It was an endearing and realistic story from a young girl's perspective of living during the Depression. It is well written and entertaining yet gives a real feel for the era. Minnie's diary will make you laugh and cry. I would recommend it to children as well as adults.
This was a cute Christmas story by an author I just discovered recently. This is the third book of hers that I enjoyed. However, what took away from this story was all the proofreading mistakes. Grrrrr.......
This was a new author for me but I love Christmas stories and thought I would give it a try. I have to say that this was one of the best I have read. It was sweet without being sappy. It was very touching with great characters. It makes you smile and also makes you cry. It is a keeper!
I loved the first book of this series and this one was even better. I fell in love with the characters even more. The action was non-stop and I could not put this book down. I could not wait to find out what happens next and can't wait to read the third in the series BAD PENNY. Super read!!!
This is Book IV of Barbara Clark's Sons of Earth and Wind Series.A good read---combining two of my favorite kinds of romances--sheik and paranormal all in one. Add lots of suspense and adventure and you have Faith and Kadar's exciting story. Fortunately each story in this series can stand alone and doesn't have to be read in order. I am now in search of her other romances.....
Every one of Jeanne Ray's books is a delight and this one is no exception! ......
EVER SINCE CHILDHOOD, RUTH HAS FOUND BAKING CAKES TO BE A SOURCE OF RELIEF FROM THE STRESSES OF LIFE. AND NOW----AS HER HUSBAND LOSES HIS JOB, HER LIFE-OF-THE-PARTY FATHER ARRIVES FOR AN EXTENDED STAY (MUCH TO THE DISMAY OF HER MOTHER, WHO ALSO MOVED IN RECENTLY), AND HER TEENAGE DAUGHTER PERFECTS THE ART OF SULKING---RUTH IS GOING TO NEED SOME SERENITY. BUT SHE ALSO NEEDS A PLAN. BECAUSE WITH FUNDS RUNNING LOW AND TEMPERS RUNNING SHORT, HER FAMILY REQUIRES MORE THAN THE PERFECT SWEET.
IT IS GOING TO BE UP TO RUTH TO SAVE THE DAY, AND LET THE CRUMBS FALL WHERE THEY MAY......
From the first page or two, you are hooked--- the characters are so real and their sometimes tender, sometimes humorous story is so interesting. An added plus are the recipes in the back of the book of all the cakes that Ruth made in this story.
In one word.... EAT CAKE is.......D E L E C T A B L E !!!
I grew up with the KJV bible but I love to also read other Bibles.This book was on my wish list for a long time and I finally just bought it. I have her original amplified hardback version of this and knew that it was so helpful with all her insights, comments and information throughout it. It has really been a great help to understand in Joyce Meyer's down to earth easy to understand language. It is a study Bible that I have enjoyed and learned so much from. That said, this leather version is just beautiful with its original pewter hand tooled look leather cover. It is a wonderful addition to my keeper shelf.
