    As a band of close-knit characters (old and new) navigates life's challenges and tries to find their place in the world, each person goes on a journey of the heart in search of the one thing everyone wants: a love of their own.

    "Left me hanging ..."
    Overall

    I really liked this book but didn't realize it was part of a series, so maybe that's why I'm in the dark. The character development was great and the narrator was wonderful, but the ending left me totally puzzled. When the book begins, one of the main characters is in ICU, but that loop is never closed so I don't know why they're there or what happened to them. Perhaps the next book will fill in the blanks.

    It is the middle of the 20th century, and in a home economics program at a prominent university, real babies are being used to teach mothering skills to young women. For a young man raised in these unlikely circumstances, finding real love and learning to trust will prove to be the work of a lifetime. In this captivating novel, bestselling author Lisa Grunwald gives us the sweeping tale of an irresistible hero and the many women who love him.

    Jennifer says: "Well worth your time and credit"
    "What a disappointment!"
    Overall

    I purchased this book after reading the glowing reviews and was thoroughly disappointed. It's a nice enough story, but it wanders all over the place ... just like Henry. A total waste of time!!

    The Republicans are coming to St. Paul for their convention. Throwing a big party is supposed to be fun, but crashing the party are a few hard cases the police would rather have stayed away. Chief among them is a crew of professional stick-up men who've spotted several lucrative opportunities, ranging from political moneymen with briefcases full of cash to that armored-car warehouse with the weakness in its security system.

    Tony B. says: "Another winner for Davenport fans"
    "UGH!!!!!!!"
    Overall

    Like other reviewers, I've read all of the Lucas Davenport books and remember a far different Lucas than the one in this book. Where is his cleverness? The book is formulaic, and while I'm glad I got the book for $9.95, it's really not worth it. Heck, it's not worth $.25!

  • Bat Boy: My True Life Adventures Coming of Age with the New York Yankees

    Sixteen-year-old Matthew McGough was a fairly typical teenager, obsessed with getting through high school, girls, and baseball, not necessarily in that order. His passion for the New York Yankees was absolute, complete with a poster of his hero, Yankees first baseman Don Mattingly, hanging on his bedroom wall. Despite having no connections whatsoever with the ballclub, Matt dreamed of sitting in the dugout with the fabled Bronx Bombers.

    Sarah says: "Fun"
    "Wonderful fun"
    Overall

    Even if you're not a sports fan (and I'm really not), this book is simply laugh out loud fun. Mr. McGough writes as if he's talking to you, and he writes well. The stories are funny, the characters are wonderful, and it made me want to find out if there were any jobs with the Yankees.
