ABOUT THE BOOK (208 pages):

One mother damaged. One family tested. One daughter determined to find her place.

Claire Lee’s life changes when she must take charge of her siblings after her mother becomes depressed from a difficult childbirth. Frightened by the way Mama sleeps too much and her crying spells during waking hours, ClaireLee just knows she’ll catch her illness like a cold or flu which hangs on through winter. ClaireLee finds comfort in the lies she tells herself and others in order to hide the truth about her erratic mother. Deciding she needs to re-invent herself, she sets out to impress a group of popular girls.

With her deception, ClaireLee weaves her way into the Lavender Girls Club, the most sophisticated girls in school. Though her best friend Belinda will not be caught with the likes of such shallow puddles, ClaireLee ignores Belinda’s warnings the Lavenders cannot be trusted. ClaireLee drifts further from honesty, her friend, and a broken mother’s love, until one very public night at the yearly school awards ceremony. The spotlight is on her, and she finds her courage and faces the truth and then ClaireLee saves her mother’s life.

ABOUT THE BOOK (315 pages): What if your child shot himself while you were in the next room? What if you held him as his heartbeat for the last time? What if Satan whispered in your ear, "Now where is your God?" Find out how Jean Ann Williams reached out with her spirit and mind to the one true Father. Discover how the Lord God answered her and walked alongside her in the most difficult grieving journey of her life.

ABOUT BOOK: Fifteen-year-old Kari Rose discovers how much trouble she and her two sisters can get into when they stay at their ancient granny's for spring break. Granny gets a wild-haired notion at three in the morning, and she’s leaving with or without them. Kari makes the decision to take her sisters and ride with Granny in her old Cadillac on a five-hundred-mile-long trip north to visit family. Miles down the road, this harmless act finds Granny no longer able to drive, and Kari must take the wheel. Soon after, the four travelers are caught in a freeway-closing-down snowstorm which brings everyone and everything to a standstill. 

A second blizzard with catastrophic impact is about to descend upon them, and Kari must determine the best way to find shelter and beat the storm. Will Kari trust her gut instincts and rely upon a complete stranger to lead them to safety?

I binge watch Hallmark's Christmas movies.

I would love to read and review Just Claire

I love to play online backgammon for fun. It's a great stress reliever for me. I've read God's Mercies After Suicide and shared it with a friend at church that lost her son the same way.
I'd love to read Just Claire.

We still play card & board  games w/ the grandchildren. Uno is a favorite, as well as candyland! and with the older ones I play cribbage and rummikub. With adults, my husband and I play euchre. I would love to read and review Road Trip to Delusion. (Just Claire was such a good book!) 

I am not a big game player, but enjoy Phase 10 sometimes. I binge watched Monk a few years ago. I still enjoy watching that show.
I would love a chance at a review copy of Just Claire or Road trip. I read and reviewed God's Mercies. Thanks for sharing your journey.

Hi everyone! I'm sorry I'm chiming in late to greet you all. I've been on an elk hunt. No, we didn't get one, but two came within 40 yards of us, but the elk were down lower on an embankment where we only heard them. Then they were gone!

I'd like to chime in on the questions. I used to watch my mother and her sister play Scrabble, and I swore when I grew up I would play. Now, this is my favorite game! I mostly loose, but I still enjoy it!

One of my favorite card games is euchre. Still love to play this.

I've never heard of this game, euchre What is it?

A card game. Very fun.

I don't see here the announcement that Anne Rightler won a copy of Road Trip of Delusion! Congratulations, Anne. Please email me your physical address and I'll send you a copy. Thank you to everyone who showed up at my page, played the game, and entered the drawing!

Since Anne is not claiming her copy of Road Trip of Delusion, I needed to choose another winner. Carrie Gould will receive a copy of Just Claire. Please send me your address, Carrie, so I can get the gifted copy to you. My email is If I don't hear back by Friday, January 5, I'll choose another winner. Thank you all!
