Slayers

Tori's just a senator's daughter. She has always wanted to go to Dragon Camp, because of her love for them, but until now has been unable to convince her wealthy parents that she should go there, they've always wanted her to attend things like finishing school instead. Finally this year, she was able to convince them because there was a class included that she could get college credit for. But Dragon Camp seems a bit strange, instead of checking in where all of the regular campers do, she's led straight to the camp director, Dr Bartholomew who assigns her to a cabin. That cabin seems to be far away from camp, you have to drive a golf cart to get there and back. And the other campers seem just a little strange to her. Soon she learns that she and all the other campers that she's with are Slayers. This select group of kids were all in their pregnant mother's stomachs when their mothers were exposed to a dragon's egg, this changed the DNA of the children to give them special dragon fighting skills. Still, they need all of their members if they're ever going to have a chance to kill the dragons when they finally hatch from their eggs. This was one of those books that I wasn't sure if I ever planned on reading. I read it only because it was a Whitney award nominee, and I'm really glad that I did. I would have really missed out if I hadn't read this amazing book! I loved Tori, I love how the Slayers all have certain abilities and how they need all of them. I loved the story and I even loved the plot twist at the end. I can't wait for the next book in this amazing series!

  1. So fun to find your review of SLAYERS here. I LOVED this book, too - and hoped it would win the Whitney Award. Janette (I mean CJ Hill!) is very deserving and her writing in this book was the best I've read by her. I just could not put this book down!

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 …

About the book: Fat-free cheese is okay—unless you’ve tasted real cheese. Juliet Easton learns this about love too as she uncovers who truly loves her, and who is using her to get to the secret she knows about the disappearance of her sister’s fiance and the pharmaceutical conspiracy he plans to reveal. 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&…
