Just about every book by Joel C. Rosenberg hits my favorite book list. This book keeps the reader’s adrenaline going, a truly fast- paced story, dramatized by Dick Hill. Set in Washington, D.C., Jerusalem, and more, the story follows deadly activity as factions of the the Middle East attempt to take over the U.S. and Israel. Great read! Great narration! Truly a 5-star plus entertainment!

After a broken engagement, Bess Star traveled to Mucksbe, Texas, to claim an inheritance left to her by a distant uncle. There's just one catch - she wasn't legally able to take ownership unless she was married. She tried to fight the matrimony clause, but a single event made her think twice. Maybe marriage wouldn't be so bad after all.

This fictionalized tale of the rebuilding of the Temple of God in Jerusalem starts in Babylon and follows closely the the Holy Bible’s Old Testament, specifically the Books of Haggai and Zechariah. This story tells of God’s love of His children. Though some words of these more modern words were occasionally used, the actual time period never wavered from the story from the ancient time period never wavereds. I shall never be the same after reading it! An excellent book! An excellent performance! I highly recommend it!

Finding me is a “feel good” book when three sisters inherit a run down Florida Resort. They must restore it in one year for a larger inheritance. The work they do and the baggage that they carry requires unity, trust, and personal ingenuity they exert facilitates huge personal growth. There’s never a dull minute within this book’s pages. Recommended!
