Fires of Jerusalem

Jeremiah and his cousin Baruch are teenagers in Jerusalem, they both know that Jerusalem is getting more and more wicked. As they work translating and copying scriptures in the Temple Archives this becomes more and more apparent to both of them. And when Baruch's goat is missing and they find it with a group of Temple guards that try to kill both boys it becomes apparent to Jeremiah's parents that they must get out of the wicked Jerusalem or something very bad will happen. Even with moving their family to Anathoth, that doesn't mean that young Jeremiah will be protected from the evil running rampant in Jerusalem. Jeremiah goes back to visit with Baruch for a festival and they see something they shouldn't, the murder of a young girl for sport, and the murderers have seen them as well. Baruch must be hidden from them, because their after him as well. But hiding won't work as well for Jeremiah, because he knows that the Lord has a work for him to do, even at a young age. But will Jeremiah be able to soften the hearts of the wicked people of Jerusalem? I liked the thought of this book, I did enjoy the ending and how Jeremiah was able to escape, I'd never really wondered what had ended up happening to him before. This book made me do that, but the rest of the story really felt...I'm not quite sure. Not really connected, or something. Not really sure how to describe it. I didn't really feel a connection to the characters either, so I wasn't really sad when any of them died, and it sure seemed as though a lot of people died in this one. I did like the connection shown between Lehi and Jeremiah, I thought that worked well.

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …

Can she protect her loved ones’ lives and her heart? You’ll be hooked from Asiago to Zamorano cheese in this suspenseful and hilarious romantic thriller.

My review: I was amazed at just how much I loved this whole book. I picked it up and read it in one day because I wanted to know just what happened so badly. Such a great book, and I had to laugh at the author's name, Sharp is a kind of cheddar cheese so it totally goes with the title.

I loved the way that Juliet is the main character in this book, because it easily could have been her sister Eva, I think having Juliet the main character brings a ton of extra plot greatness. I also liked the way there were tons of flashbacks to Eva&…
