One Chance

Valentina is a beautiful runway model, she's never been able to form any lasting relationships with the right man, because she's constantly running from one job or country to the next. She's been invited to her cousin Sasha's wedding in California and is excited to see her friends, The Five from Aliso Creek. As she's checking in to her hotel, she notices the very handsome man in line in front of her, but she never dreams that it will be Cesar Melendez, a crush from when she was 12 and living in Puerto Rico. She's used to men treating her as if she is a piece of meat, because she's very beautiful, but Cesar treats her much as he did when they were 12. He seems to not care what she looks like and just seems to want to talk and get to know her again. But Cesar is still living in Puerto Rico and Valentina's job is based in New York, is there any way the two of them can make a relationship work?

This is a really cute novella, I like this series, because the characters are fun, you get to see what happens to all of them. I like that you can read them fairly quickly and they are full of clean romance. Sometimes, like this one, I wish they are a bit longer, so you can see what ends up happening to them! This is supposed to be the last in the series, but it doesn't matter what order you read them in. If you are a fan of clean, fun, romantic stories, then you won't want to miss this fun series! 

I bought this one from amazon.com for $1.99.

Blog Tour - Stu Stories: The Adventures of Dirt Clod and His Sidekick Bird Bones

About the book: Stu Sanderson is no ordinary eighth-grader. Not only is he seven feet tall, but he also vanishes into thin air, duels knights and ninjas, lifts the downtrodden, and woos the best-calved girl in school. Become a middle-grade legend with Stu and his sidekick, Bird Bones, on the journey of a lifetime in “Stu Stories.”

My review: This is a fun book written for middle grade boys. It doesn't seem as though there are all that many written for this group, so I always enjoy seeing new ones. 

I liked the way this one is written. Stu is who the book is about, but the way it's written is through the eyes of his friend, Bird Bones. That makes the things that happen to Stu even more funny because you don't know how the things happened. 

This book reminded me a little bit of "Sideways Stories from Wayside School," because it's a collection of several stories that kind of fit together to make a whole story, but they also stand on their own. I thought the stories…

Favorite Friday - Relative Race

Our family doesn't watch very much TV at all. Most of what we watch airs on BYUTV. We are big Studio C fans at our house. And this show, Relative Race is one of our very favorites. We recently re-watched the whole first season because the second season starts on Sunday and we couldn't wait! 

This show is a reality type show. There are 4 couples who start on one side of the country and race to the other side, meeting new relatives along the way. Last season they took their cell phones away very first thing and they had to use paper maps to get where they needed to go, which was sometimes a problem for all of the contestants. Anyway, each team is given a specific city to go to. They have to make it to the city, then take and send a selfie with a city sign. Once that happens they get a challenge to complete and then they are given their relative's address. Then...they have to spend the night with their relatives, which seems to me like it could be very awkward! But last season…

Changed Through His Grace

About the book: "Have you been changed by grace?" In this insightful book, Brad Wilcox explores this life-altering question in depth. Christians throughout the centuries have used grace to describe God's favor, goodwill, and love. However, grace is more than a description of God's attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. Grace is different from the Atonement. It is not Christ's suffering, death, and Resurrection. Rather, grace is the power that flows from those sacred moments. Grace is not a priesthood ordinance, but essential ordinances invite greater and greater endowments of grace into our lives. Grace is a divine gift, but like any gift, it must be received.

In this book, Brother Wilcox uses real-life stories and personal experiences to demonstrate how we c…
