Let's get right into this one guys..  A Federal Judge thinks his wife picked up his 6 year old twins through a text. Truth is they were actually picked up by kidnappers. He is told to say nothing. This is a gripping thrill ride of a book. Trust me once you open this book you may as well clear your schedule because you will end up making this book a priority and won't be able to set it down until you are done. You really get into the head of the Scott, the Federal Judge and I felt that the characters were developed. The short chapters were a huge plus because it helped to keep me turning pages as I kept thinking just one more chapter. I loved this book and although I haven't previously read a book by this author now he is on my list of top author's of books to read. 5 out of 5 stars. I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged. 

   Don't toss out your old clothes repurpose them!

A grand Scottish Read

The Reluctant Highlander: A Highland Romance (The Highland Series Book 1) by [Scott, Amanda]    To order your copy click here

Amanda Scott writes a tale that takes place in the 1400's . At the very beginning of the book Amanda shares a short glossary of words to help you get in touch with this period as the writing is such that it is written in the language of the times. Opening up we see that war is going on and we can see the harshness of the times. As the story unfolds Lady Fiona is found swimming at midnight and Adhman discovers her. A few weeks later at her father's request the two are wed. It is a political marriage of sorts as well. After the marriage Lady Fiona finds that her husband has blood ties with the enemies they are at war with. He is a knight and they are falling in love.  The book is a must for those who love Scottish life and the 1400's reading. I found the story interesting although I do confess there was a lot of language that I wasn't familiar with but I pushed through my reading,  as the story was moving and interesting so it was worth the read plus I had the opportunity to learn about times. I did enjoy this and would recommend this for reading.  I did receive this for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

   We just had 4 litters of bunnies!!!!
We were beginning to wonder about our bunnies and Clay was laughing at me because he knows that the bunnies are pretty much on time. All said it takes about 30 days for rabbits to have babies. I gave all our breeder rabbits names Sunny, Spring, Blue , Pinky and Sable (or I should say I made my husband give them names :) All said Sunny our California was first, then Pinky a New Zealand, then Blue our blue eyed bunny and then Spring was going crazy ripping out her fur.. (there was fur everywhere!!!!) to build her nest. Finally she had her babies on day 33 . We still have our Silver Fox rabbit that should have babies in about 2 weeks.

I started getting the bug for WWII stories when I read a book by Corrie Ten Boom The Hiding Place as a kid. Growing up in America as a all german girl, my mom has told me stories of being a child during this horrible season in our World History. She told me once as a child her mom told her she was going to go some place special and for a whole week she was terrified they were going to take her away with all the children. She actually was going to go to a Birthday party for her best friend! Momma also told me how they would have to have all the lights out in the town and how her father and even my Dad as a kid would ride around the town to make sure everyone was inside. My great Uncles 6 all went to fight as Germans from the USA the Nazi's and all miraculously came home.  I absolutely loved this book The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman set in Poland during World War II. A true story of when the Nazi's invaded Poland and took over the Zoo. Ruthless to the animals and carrying some away to create the perfect specimen. The Zookeepers hide Jewish people in the Zoo and in the cages. I couldn't put this down. I love reading the courageous stories of how people would help protect the Jewish families during WWII. A wonderful read. I highly recommend this book. I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Image result for Home on the Range by Ruth Logan Herne   To order your copy click here

Wow! First of all let me tell you that this wasn't your typical romance book. Nick is recovering along with his family from a divorce that bleeds over into his children and extended family. A child of divorced parents he struggles with how his Dad raised him. Still living in the past along with his oldest daughter, Cheyenne. Cheyenne is having problems all around - her attitude towards her younger sibling. her school work , and she is trying to do things such as keeping a tidy house (at 9!) just in case Mom comes home. On the other side of the upcoming romance is Dr. Elsa she bailed out of life and moved into the woods away from life living like a hermit. Nick ends up reluctantly taking his daughter to Dr. Elsa and from there romance blooms - (No spoilers!) I loved how the story shared a lot from the man's point of view and also I felt that the "Doctor advice" and thoughts were a wonderful addition. My favorite was when the daughter had a bad report card and how Elsa handled it! A great book for anyone "STUCK " in a pit and can't move forward.. healing and the journey from stuck to freedom. A beautiful christian theme playing in the background. I absolutely love this book and highly recommend this for all. 5 out of 5 stars. I did receive this book for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Who is watching who? Suspense The Watcher by Ross Armstrong

Image result   To order your copy click here

This book to me was as a fine wine to be sipped and read at the pace the author set out as the story unfolds. I found it brilliant. Lily moves with her husband to a new apartment that gives a view of the building that is set to be demolished. Aiden, her husband is busy writing engrossed in his work this leaves Lily with not much to do besides her hobby of bird watching and watching the neighbors. One day it happened as Lily was peering through her binoculars she spies a murder. Her elderly neighbor Jean is dead. No spoilers here except for this.. Who is watching who? Now Lily's life is in danger. Written in first person with a style that makes you just drink in your reading. If you love mysteries and suspense you will love this. Be prepared this is written in first person one of the reasons I truly loved this! I did receive this for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.

Books for children for #SPRING2017

Photo   I have always been a reader. I remember going on vacation to visit my grandparents and packing tons of books. Reading is one thing that my mom and I have always shared. I enjoy reading about anything family friendly.
Yes, I even read children's books. We were sent 4 books for review from MacMillan Children's publishing group

Grand Canyon by Jason Chin
Science Comics Bats by Falynn Koch
Petal Power by Allan Drummond
Counting Sheep: Calpurnia Tate, Girl Vet by Jacqueline Kelly. 

All of these were fun for review. Clay picked up The Science Comics Bats by Falynn Koch and I delved into the other books. One thing really nice about books for kids is that you can usually learn something. I loved reading and learning about the Grand Canyon and had a lot of fun reading Petal Power and Counting Sheep and learning from them. Excellent for homeschoolers, moms, kids, and to start your collection for summer reading. As stated above I did receive these books to share my honest review and no monies were exchanged.

I was approached to read an ARC of Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate. This is inspired by a true story based in the early 1940's. Rill and her sibling live in a houseboat along the Mississippi river. One day their father has to take their mother to the hospital in a hurry and while they were gone strangers come in and take all the children to an orphange. The story is heart breaking as you hear about how Rill tries to keep her family together.  We did receive this for review purposes and no monies were exchanged.
