Shifting

Maggie May is a senior in high school, she's been in the foster care system since her aunt and cousin were killed when she was 5 years old. She's getting pretty sick of bouncing between houses. She can't seem to stay in one place very long, she's had abusive foster parents as well as good ones, but the issue is that she keeps getting picked up by the police for indecent exposure. Maggie's uncertain why, but for some reason ever since she was 16 years old on  nights with full moons she turns into a cat, which ends up tearing her clothes. Then she runs around as a cat and when she turns back into a girl, she has no clothes, thus the indecent exposure charges. Her case worker has just one more home for her to try in the very small town of Silver City, New Mexico with an older lady named Mrs. Carpenter. Maggie knows that Mrs. Carpenter will be different from the start, but she's still unsure whether or not to tell her her deep dark secret. Can Mrs. Carpenter be trusted to know about Maggie's shifting, or will it just bring her and Maggie untold danger? This was a fun book, I enjoyed the Skinwalker legend that was in the book, I enjoyed the characters. I found myself feeling bad about the things that had happened and were happening to Maggie, especially the brutality of going to high school.  I hope that there are other books to be written about Maggie, so that I can discover what happens to her after the end of this book!

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&…
