Unlocked by Karen Kingsbury

I have to admit I was a little iffy about trying Kingsbury's books. I am a very cautions reader I will normally only get a book if I know without a doubt that I will LOVE it. This one I had heard great things about from my friends at church. So without even reading the back I picked it up from the library. I get it home and it is about a autistic child and his family and friends. I went into the book thinking I was going to get board with it very soon. Within 5 minutes I was hooked, I…

A Bookish Summer

Summer vacation is almost here and we've stocked up on some really great summer reads. Yes, a family trip to B&N over the long weekend left our nightstands full, our Nooks a little 'heavier', and our excitement about the stories almost tangible.

I thought I'd share some of our latest finds with you. So if you're looking for something great to read while the hot summer… Continue

Bull-Buckin' Giveaway!


I'm counting down the days until I can go home again. Target date: June 3.

For those who don't already know, I've been taking care of an ill mother since the last week in March and seeing my husband only on weekends. Mom's doing reasonably better, and she's able to do a few things for herself now. I want to keep an eye on her blood count (the test is today), and there's a…

An accomplished, proud mother of five, 44-year-old Joleen Allen has set her sights on true love; unfortunately, every time a promising prospect comes into the picture – he bypasses her for one of her daughters. To make matters worse, her ex-husband – fresh from a stint in prison – soon makes it his mission not only to ruin Joleen’s good name, but her life as well. An eclectic, conflicting mix of personalities themselves, Joleen’s daughters don’t do much to alleviate the stress in her life –…

Ever since my eldest daughter Rachael – who is quite brilliant, I must confess, but then I’m a doting mama, but I am speaking the truth – oh look, I have gotten off on a mini-bunny trail and now must find my way back.


I wonder why they are called bunny trails? Other animals leave tracks, and the way I sometimes get distracted, they should be called dinosaur trails or elephant trails. But I wouldn’t want to be associated…

HAVAH - A Review

Havah is the story of Adam and Eve.  However, this is no Sunday School version! Author Tosca Lee has very skillfully taken the familiar Biblical tale and woven it into a rich tapestry full of unedited human drama, despair, pain, and triumph. The story is told from Eve’s point of view, giving us a whole different perspective – right from the moment she wakes in the garden, to the subtle deception of the serpent, and on through almost 900 years of her struggles as matriarch of…

Back On Murder - a review

Back On Murder by J. Mark Bertrand is a murder mystery extraordinaire. Houston detective Roland March is disillusioned and misunderstood, relegated to special assignments nobody else wants. He gets his big chance for redemption when he is assigned to a missing person’s case - one which he thinks is connected to a drug murder; but proving it might just cost him his life.  Beyond a very engaging story line with plenty of plot twists and surprises, Bertrand’s writing style is…
