The Horn of Moran

In the six months since Alex's last adventure he's been studying to be a Wizard by corresponding with Whalen Vankin, meeting with him would be preferable, but Whalen is currently on an adventure of his own. He's also been exploring his own dad's Magic Bag and trying to get to know him, even a little bit. One day, he receives a note from Whalen telling him that Silvan Bregnest, the leader of his last adventure is putting together a new group to go on another adventure. Whalen tells Alex that it's up to him, but that he thinks just maybe Alex would like to go on the adventure. Alex jumps at the suggestion, meeting Bregnest as suggested and signing on for a second adventure to find The Horn of Moran, a very important artifact for the known land of Alusia. Along the way Alex will get to see two friends get married, vanquish a bully in a comical way, outwit some goblins and make a host of new friends. All in adventure's name.

I was hoping that this second book was as good as the first and I was not disappointed in any way. I found Alex in this book to be the same steady, honorable, true personality that he was in the first book. In this book Alex, and readers, meet some new friends as well as make better acquaintance with some old friends. I still love the adventures in this book. I was quite surprised with who turned out to be the "bad guy" in this book, I like the way that it shows that we can each decide to be good, or to be "bad" by the choices that we make in our lives. I like how Alex again faces temptation but is able to stay true to his character. This is a great series, so excited to read the 4th one in February!

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&…
