The Healing Spell

Happy 4th of July! Hope you have a great day with your families!


11 year-old Livie's Mamma has been in the hospital, she has the sleeping sickness (she's been in a coma), and Livie knows that it's all her fault. She hasn't ever really gotten along with Mamma very well, and she knows that she isn't as good of a daughter as her older sister, Faye, or her younger sister, Crickett. Now the doctors have said that there isn't anything more they can do for Mamma, they'll just have to wait and see what happens. Today is the day that Daddy is going to bring Mamma home from the hospital for the family to take care of at home. Livie knows that Mamma is still there, but just inside herself somewhere, still she can't bring herself to try to touch Mamma or care for her in any way. Leaving all of Mamma's care to Faye is Livie's plan. Livie must learn some important lessons about faith and forgiveness, and hopefully by then Mamma will wake up and life can go on for the family as normal.

This is really a cute story. I loved seeing things from Livie's point of view. I loved how she was able to learn about faith and how she was able to muster her courage enough to help with Mamma, even though she really didn't want to. The characters were really fun in this book. I love how the Louisiana Bayou really came alive in this book, almost to the point of being another character. This is a really cute book!

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&…
