Folks in Sterling Canyon know that small towns have long memories. Two years after the DUI that injured a pedestrian, Andy Randall is still making amends. He hopes the Christmas spirit will help him get rehired as a ski instructor, but that job will come with conditions. He can't afford another mistake, which is exactly what making a play for his former boss and friend, Nikki Steele, would be.

I have a history of picking the wrong guy. Gay? Player? Momma's boy? Check, check and check. Now I can't stop fantasizing about one of the customers at the coffee shop I work at between classes. It's just a harmless crush, right? It's not like I ever see this guy outside of the coffee shop. It's not like I'm going to see him while attempting to get birth control at the student clinic. While wearing a paper gown. While sitting on an exam table. Because he's the doctor. Shoot. Me.

This is a moving story, about two true loves. The story is rich, with fully fleshed out characters that you cry with and for; that you route for and that you relate to. EVERY character in the story has a purpose to the main story. It's simply a well written and well told story. This is well worth the credit...

It made me laugh, cry, smile and cry and celebrate. How lucky to be loved by two great, good guys.

Most of us know what it's like to wait for God to change our circumstances. But whether we're waiting for physical healing, an emotional breakthrough, or better relationships, waiting is something we usually try to avoid. Why? Because waiting is painful and hard. The truth is it's also inevitable. In Still Waiting, Ann Swindell explores the depths of why God wants us to wait by chronicling her own compelling story of waiting for healing from an incurable condition.

How long, God? When waiting on God stretches for months or years, we might begin to doubt his promises. Did I hear you correctly, God? Do you see what I'm going through? Why does this have to be so hard? In Wait and See, Wendy Pope draws on the life of King David to help us.

This book has helped to understand the wait. Through lots of tears, I realized that I can survive the wait, and restore my full relationship with God again. God is trustworthy, even if my wait does not end or ends differently. I just want peace, so I must remove the object and replace my focus on God.

We're all waiting for something. It might be a spouse or a baby. It might be healing or a home. Regardless of what we're waiting for, it's easy to feel discontent when things aren't going as planned and our dreams are delayed - especially when questions of "why?" and "how long?" remain unanswered. God uses seasons of waiting to teach us patience and make us more like himself. But sanctification is not the only purpose God has in mind.

This book is something I needed. I wish I could say it made me more hopeful that I will not be single for the rest of my life. The book was honest that not everyone is called to be married and my wait not end in this life.
I have been looking for how to survive the what seems like perpetual waiting. This book did that. I understand there is no one thing I can do to move past this season of waiting. The waiting only ends on God's time frame. Good book lots of good tips and insight. Honest and real no false hope.

When it comes to caring for the furry residents of St. Helena, California, groomer and pet rescuer Shay Michaels can handle anything. Humans are another story, though--especially Deputy Jonah Baudouin. He's the town's resident superhero: upright, uptight, and jaw-droppingly gorgeous, even when he's investigating complaints about Shay's beloved foster animals. And that spells danger for Shay, a free spirit who can't risk trusting the wrong person again.

I couldn't get into the book. Too much focus on the animals and not enough focus on the "romantic connection "of the two characters. Great if you are a pet lover. I am not. This book was a waste of a credit .

Jamie is a fabulous writer. Please give her other books a listen you will not be disappointed.

The female narrator ruined this experience for me. Buy the paperback.
