The Last Cleric by Layton Green ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

The upside of my ebook disorganization is that sometimes I find a great surprise. While I felt bad that The Last Cleric was lost in my virtual pile, I was happy to have this book to read.

You've Been Volunteered by @LauriemGelman ~ a Review

by MK French

Jen Dixon had previously been the class mom for her youngest child, who is now in third grade. There is a lot to juggle between those duties, her two older daughters' lives, her husband trying to curry favor with a potential business partner, and additional duties for the school. She remains irreverent and down to earth even as she tries to handle everything.

Man vs Durian by Jackie Lau ~ a Review

by MK French

Durian is a fruit with a rather noxious odor that people either adore or loathe. Peter So is one of those that loathe it, but Valerie Chow adores it. They meet when she spills durian ice cream on him, and the encounter leads to Peter agreeing to play fake boyfriend to her family. Perhaps it could even become more.

Everything You Are by Kerry Anne King ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

This beautifully written, lyrical novel is about music and family and forgiveness with a touch of magical realism.  It's one of those books that you want to get to the end to see how it ends but you find yourself reading slower because you don't want it to end and you don't want to say goodbye to the characters.

My Ex-Best Friend's Wedding by Wendy Wax ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

"What can I say about the wedding dress?  I can tell you it's been in my family for generations.  That after all these years, it's still beautiful...It's one of a kind.  Ivory satin with a scooped neck, flange collar and a cleverly fitted bodice.  It's clean lined and elegant.  With its Chantilly lace mantilla it's the kind of dress meant for a showy, yet tasteful, fairy-tale wedding to a handsome prince.  And while happily-ever-after is never guaranteed, it's implied...After Lindy, my grandmother and her other cousins wore it.  So did their daughters and those of us who followed.  Every single Jameson bride looked beautiful in it." (p1-2)

The Cloud is the biggest employer in the United States, with large complexes of housing, warehouses, and areas for entertainment for the employees. Paxton applied to work and live in one MotherCloud campus when his business failed due to Cloud's cheaper pricing, and Zinnia is there as a corporate spy. Cloud's creator is sure he can make the world a better place, but at what cost?

Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service by Gary Sinise ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts

“When I thought about that, I remembered something I have heard in church. We each have a purpose in life, and if we’re serving God, following him, living out God’s calling and purposes for our life, then we can have faith that God is leading us, and even difficult times can turn out all right. God can cause all things to work together for good.”
