Enna Burning (The Books of Bayern #2)

Enna's come home to care for her mother in her final days. But after she dies, Enna notices that her brother Leifer is acting a bit strange. She's not quite sure what's going on with him, but one evening she tries to restrain him and he ends up burning her. Enna didn't even know there were people that could "speak" to fire just as her friend Isi "speaks" to wind. She's not so sure that fire speaking is a good gift, and tries to talk to Isi about it. Isi isn't sure either, but just then a neighboring kingdom, Tira, starts a war with Bayern and all of the forest born, including Leifer are asked to join the cause. When Leifer causes his own death by burning the forces of Tira, Enna knows that she can help in the war by learning to control fire too. She knows that she will be more careful than Leifer and not burn herself out. But she doesn't realize just how hard it is to control the fire and soon she is out of control herself. When she's taken captive by evil forces from Tira, Enna must come to grips with fire-speaking and figure out just how to save herself from the enemy.

I really enjoy Shannon Hale's books, I've loved every one that I've read. This book was great too, although the plot seemed to move a bit slow for my taste. I did like Enna and I know how the story ends for her, because I've read these out of order. I like Enna's strength and faith in herself. I like how she likes herself, even though she has a fire raging in her body. I like how she forgives herself and promises herself never to hurt others that way again. 

I was able to borrow this book from my local library.

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 …

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&…
