Another Day, Another Dali

Another Day, Another Dali

Sandra Orchard

In the second Serena Jones mystery, Serena continues her pursuit on finding the truth out about the murder of her grandfather. When her grandmother asks her help with a friends missing painting, Serena finds herself mixed up into two investigations. The deeper she gets in the investigations the more danger she faces.

Sandra Orchard takes art and mixes it up with a mystery. As a mystery lover I fell in love with this series from the first page to the last page of this book. I can't wait to see what Serena is going to get into next and which guy will she chose the super or the FBI guy.  

Where Two Hearts Meet!!!

Where Two Hearts Meet

by Liz Johnson

Return to the beautiful Prince Edward Island in the newest arrival from Liz Johnson. We briefly met Caden Holt in the first book of the series as the baker at her fathers shop. Now we find her in the position of executive chef at the Red Door Inn. Being able to do the her favorite thing in life, baking and making meals for others. When word comes that a travel writer is coming to visit the Inn, Caden is placed into a position she does not want. Her boss is concerned about the lack of profit coming in and the promise of a travel writer brings hope in their dire situation. Caden is their best hope at entertaining the writer and showing him the sights while selling the red door inn as a choice for a travel site.

Liz Johnson has written another delightful read based on the Prince Edward Island; also the home to the Anne of Green Gables series. I love getting to read about a different area then where I live. Caden reminds me of myself, wanting to be in the background serving others. Like Caden I have had to be pulled out of my comfort zone and pushed to do something that I never thought I would do in my life.
There are so many others like Caden out there, that can see themselves in this character. It gives us hope that we can step out of comfort zone and do something different in life.

A big thank you for Revell making this available for review.

Another Good Read!!

Home on the Range

by Ruth Logan Herne

The second book in the Double S Ranch series brings us back to Gray's Glen, Washington. We find the town still trying to rebuild after the disaster that has struck them. At the same time the Stafford brother Nick, has put his whole focus on working his family ranch and is now struggling to raise his daughters on his own.

Ruth has done it again and written a story that pulls you in to the book. The little girls struggling with the issue of not having a mother in the picture, then all of sudden she reappears in their life. This story deals with a issue that is not touched very often in fiction. The struggle of a doting father trying to make the right decisions for his daughters without causing them more pain in the long run. Also the pain of having a parent that leaves and then chooses to reinsert themselves in their child lives for alternative reasons.

I loved the way she created her characters to each have their own uniqueness and background that draws you to love them more, Can't wait for the third installment in this amazing series.
