Huber Hill and the Dead Man's Treasure

Huber Hill is really hating his life in junior high. Each day he goes to school and is mocked, beaten, made fun of, and embarrassed by Scott McCormick, and Scott never gets in trouble for the things he does to Huber. But that all changes one day when Scott goes too far. He starts out just making fun of Huber, calling him the nickname that Scott made up for him Puber, and just plain being mean, but when Huber's twin sister Hannah tries to get Scott to stop and gets hurt, Huber knows that Scott has pushed things too far and Huber decides to fight back instead of just taking the constant bullying any more. When a scary man comes to the Hill's home looking for the treasure map that Huber's Grandpa Nick left to him when he died, Huber knows he has to go after the treasure - before the scary man goes and finds it, so he sneaks away bringing Hannah and Scott and the three have the most dangerous adventure of their young lives! 

This was such a great book! I loved the adventure, action and even touch of romance that was in this one. It's written for younger readers, probably around ages 10-15, but the story is engaging enough for adults too. I like the way there are puzzles that make you think in the books, it's almost as though you are figuring things out along with Huber, Scott and Hannah, it keeps you vested in the story. I couldn't put it down and am really excited to read the second one.

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&…
