Heroes of the Highest Order Series


This is a first for me, I'm going to do a review of an entire series. The Heroes of the Highest Order series is a series of books written by R K Hinrichsen. In this series our heroes Dan and Page have been moved to Utah from their childhood home of Florida by their parents. Dan especially is not happy with the move, he's used to being the fastest boy in his class. But his mom tries to help him to be happy and show him the park that both she and his father used to play at. She seems especially interested in having him try out the swings for some reason. When Dan and Page try out the swings they find themselves magically transported to a hidden kingdom that's full of kids like them learning to be real heroes. Will Dan and Page be able to get back to their parents, or are they going to be stuck in the Hidden Kingdom forever? 

In the second book of the series, Dan and Page have discovered that their parents are also
Heroes of the Highest Order, and their whole family is in danger from Bopar's army. Luckily they've been given sabatons, special shoes that protect their feet and warn them of danger. They are trapped at the playground, but end up able to escape to a different time and place in order to search for the key to open the prison where their grandfather, also a hero is being held by Bopar and his army. But will they be able to find the key when so many others have already failed? 



The third book of the series finds Dan and Page searching for the prison where their grandfather is being held in a small town in Poland. Dan is given a special vest to help him be invisible, and even better, Page is invisible as long as she and Dan are touching. Dan and Page must get into the prison, and get their grandfather out without being caught by a traitor. But another task is added for the two heroes, they also must help get the traitors children away from Bopar's army and back to the Hidden Kingdom. Will they be able to do all this without getting caught?

I really enjoyed this series. These books are written for elementary school kids. Each one has a real hero from history in it, with a biography of that hero at the end. I love that kids are able to learn a little about historical heroes from these books. I like the characters. I really like that kids are taught that they can be led to choose the right and become a hero in their own lives through doing that. What a good lesson for kids to learn!

I was sent an e-copy of these books in exchange for an honest review.

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 …

Blog Tour - Love and Fat Free Cheese

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&…
