    In this joyous and whimsical holiday novel, Debbie Macomber rings in the season with the return of Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy, delivering laughs, love, and a charming dose of angelic intervention. Shirley, Goodness, and Mercy know that an angel's work is never done, especially during a time as wondrous as New Year's Eve. With an apprentice angel, Will, under their wings, they descend upon Times Square in New York City eager to join in the festivities.

    After the 1st few sentences, I'm hooked!! I can't close the book! I must keep listening until
    I hear the whole book. I hope it won't take Debbie another 3 years before she finishes another book.

    The Bible talks about how terrible the tribulation will be, but listening
    To this book. Makes the harries more real.
    I realize this is just a fictional story, but the real thing could be even worse.
    Thinking of all the evil in the world today, we should thank God for His
    Great love and mercy toward America and pray that many people will
    be saved before the Rapture!

    What in the world is going on? There is an unsettling mood hanging like storm clouds over North America. Why is there so much upheaval on so many levels? Where is America moving, and where is the world heading? Who will emerge from among the sea of nations as the survivor and the leader? In Unleashing the Beast, Perry Stone demonstrates how biblical prophecies are playing out on the world stage today.

    A consist picture of the end of days, foretold in the Bible and even
    the Korrand. Give in simple language which everyone can understand.
    After thousands of hours of prayer and study, Perry Stone has given
    us "End Times..101"
    Paul wrote I & Ii thessolions to the early church so they wouldn't worry
    about believers that had died before. Christ returned. Perry Stone has
    given us a charge... "Accept Jesus as Savoir" or face these dyer consequences.
    The choice is up to you! The time is short! Jesus is coming soon!!

    The world is on the brink of disaster. Iran has just conducted its first atomic-weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah - known as the Twelfth Imam - has arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second Holocaust and the annihilation of Israel.

Does the commander of the jihadist faction really have the weapons? If so, who is the intended target? The U.S.? Israel? Or could it be Jordan?

    You can't put it down...you have to listen all the way through to the end.
    What's more you want several more chapters. You want to know what happened to all the main characters.
    Did the "good guys" win?
    Most of all where is the President of the United States?
    And last but not least, did the reporter accept Jesus as his Savior?
    Maybe we'll find out in the next book..I hope that's soon!

    Trenton, New Jersey’s favorite used-car dealer, Jimmy Poletti, was caught selling a lot more than used cars out of his dealerships. Now he’s out on bail and has missed his date in court, and bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is looking to bring him in. Leads are quickly turning into dead ends, and all too frequently into dead bodies. Even Joe Morelli, the city’s hottest cop, is struggling to find a clue to the suspected killer’s whereabouts. These are desperate times, and they call for desperate measures.

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Since moving to Cedar Cove, Jo Marie Rose has truly started to feel at home, and her neighbors have become her closest friends. Now it's springtime, and Jo Marie is eager to finish the most recent addition to her inn. In memory of her late husband, Paul, she has designed a beautiful rose garden for the property and enlisted handyman Mark Taylor to help realize it. She and Mark don't always see eye-to-eye - and at times he seems far removed - yet deep down, Jo Marie finds great comfort in his company.

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    I didn't think it could get any better than the Plum books, but I was wrong! These characters
    are superb!! Scott Brink portrayed the story masterfully. Every time I had to pause the story,
    I couldn't wait to get back. I hope Janet and Lee are working on another book as we speak.
    I will buy as many as they write and will recommend them to all my friends.

    This is a new author to me...She's Great!!!
    I want MORE!!!!
    This is an unusual story of a homeless mother and child and how it affected the child as she became an adult.
    We see homeless all over the country and many of us donate to help the shelters, but I
    never thought of what happens to the children in the future. This story gave me a new
    insight to think about.
    Once you start, you can't wait to get to the next chapter. I finished the book in two nights.
    Is this Anna's first book? I haven't found her listed in our library.
