Small Grain of Sand

Jennifer Mason is a preschool teacher living in New Zealand. She loves all of the children, but twins Simonne and Patrick Durand hold her heart in their small hands. Their single father has rarely picked them up or dropped them off, it's always been a nanny or a neighbor...until now. Now all of the female workers at the preschool have hearts all aflutter over the handsome single father, Phillippe. It's obvious that he's having some schedule problems and he asks that Jennifer be willing to keep the children at the school a bit later. Jennifer, a twin herself, asks that her sister help her after hours. This leads to an amazing situation for both of them, Phillippe needs to take the twins on a boat to Tahiti. He needs someone to care for them both en-route and on the island while he works to build a home for his grandmother. This amazing situation ends up being Jennifer's alone due to an accident that her twin suffers. But will Jennifer be able to keep her heart safe from the handsome Phillippe, or will the cute twins break down her barriers?

This was a cute story, I liked most of it. The characters are well-written. The love story is really great. It seemed like the conflict of the story in the beginning was great and I wondered what would happen, but when it finally happened it didn't feel as if the build up to it was even worth it. It just fell flat for me. I liked the feeling of the Tahitian island, and the characters that lived there. This is a cute story, I'm not disappointed that I took the time to read it.

I was able to borrow a copy of 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&…
