This is the story of group of people who interact around Christmas. It is told by Nathan Hurst in a journal like story. He meets a woman with a special son who had died and came back with a gift. It is both sad and uplifting. It shows the good side and the bad side of people. I would recommend this book. I cried for the child.

I picked this up because I thought it'd be good for a laugh, but it turned out to be surprisingly good. A quick, light read that would be especially good for a teen who isn't that big on reading.

After reading the Angel Experiment, I had to find out what happens next. Max, Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel find other experiments and rescue them but in the process Max kills Ari who she learns is her brother. Join them in their adventures with the flying Erasers and Fang getting hurt. This is a good series and a fast read. I would recommend it.

Number 6 in the Cupcake Bakery Mystery series. It's a good, solid series. The characters are likeable with depth, the story is good, and (most importantly) the recipes are tasty. A good cozy mystery series.

I love the Eve Duncan books and I first met Kendra Michaels in one of them. She is a once blind person who gained her sight but also developed her other senses. She is remarkable in her talents. Kendra is tracking a killer who is copying her old cases but he is working with a death row enemy. The end leaves you wondering. I would recommend this book.
