    Robyn Carr’s best-selling Virgin River series captivates fans with stories of young men and women given second chances at love in a small northern California town. Four years ago, Sean and Franci broke up when he refused to commit. Now vacationing in Virgin River, Sean is shocked to run across Franci again. He’s grown up and wants to give things another shot, but she can’t afford to have him break her heart again.

    Story

    The combination of great characterization and fantastic narration made Angel's Peak my favorite so far in the Virgin River series. Ms. Carr perfectly captured a 3 year old's behavior. She makes you fall in love with this little girl! This book will make you laugh out loud and cry some real tears. I love the way Ms. Carr lets the reader catch up with all of the other Virgin River characters while telling the story of the primary characters within each book. Excellent series!

    Matthew King was once considered one of the most fortunate men in Hawaii. His missionary ancestors who came to the islands were financially and culturally progressive - one even married a Hawaiian princess, making Matt a royal descendant and one of the state’s largest landowners. But now his luck has changed. His two daughters are out of control - 10-year-old Scottie has a smart-ass attitude and a desperate need for attention and 17-year-old Alex is a recovering drug addict.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. All of the characters helped drive the story. It has many layers, losing a parent, realizing they aren't perfect, mixed feelings with the grief process. It is much better than the movie. In the book the reader understands and sympathizes with each characters behavior

    Wonderful book! I enjoyed every minute of it. The historical details are fascinating. The narrators voices are beyond expectation. You will need a hankie in the end.

    Known for tackling hot-button issues in her timely fiction, Jodi Picoult has sold millions of books. Change of Heart explores capital punishment and organized religion through the tale of death row inmate Shay Bourne. Bourne's last request is to donate his heart to his victim's ailing sister. The situation gets more complicated when Bourne begins performing miracles in full view of witnesses - including his Catholic spiritual advisor.

    Story

    I really love Jodie Picoult's books. This was one of my favorite. She addresses the subject of what is religion along with the validity of capital punishment. The characters are all deep and believable. As with most of her books, Picoult keeps the reader guessing about the outcome until the very end. As a reader I felt challenged to examine my own views of these critical subjects.

    John Hart creates a literary thriller that is as suspenseful as it is poignant, a riveting murder mystery layered beneath the southern drawl of a humble North Carolina lawyer. When Work Pickens finds his father murdered, the investigation pushes a repressed family history to the surface and he sees his own carefully constructed facade begin to crack.

    I liked this book better than most Grisham novels and I love Grisham books. All of the key characters have great depth enough to make you hate some and love others. I look forward to reading more from this author.
