What happened to Search and Rescue volunteer Wes Dulany? That's the question on everyone's mind this fall in the small town of Christmas River, Oregon. And it's especially on the mind of pie baker extraordinaire Cinnamon Peters, who returns home after spending the summer working in Portland to find that one of the town's most beloved citizens has gone missing while looking for legendary treasure in the Christmas River National Forest. A dangerous game is afoot in Christmas River - and the stakes are higher than anybody ever imagined.

I love this series more with every book. Too bad it looks like this is the last one produced as an audiobook. I look forward with bated breath for the next ones.

Angela Carson wants nothing more than to be the third generation to run her family’s holiday store, Heart of Christmas, successfully. They’ve weathered more than 60 tourist seasons, major hurricanes, and urban sprawl from their old decommissioned lighthouse. But the national chain that set up shop in their small North Carolina town of Pleasant Sands may be more than Heart of Christmas can survive. Encouraged by her niece to ask Santa for help through the Dear Santa app, Angela gives in and lets the words fly in a way that would no doubt land her on the naughty list.

Since I pretty much have the movie this is loosely modeled on memorized, it was fun to see how she mixed it in. I love how this author is able to evoke the Christmas Spirit. A great read to lead into the holiday season. Loved it. It looks like I was the first listener to finish and review it. Yay!

With Christmas only three days away, Carol Claus agrees to her father's request that she leave the North Pole on a mission to help save Christmas. Joining single father Ben Hanson and his children for the holidays seems an easy enough task until Santa informs her that Ben is the man behind the disturbing new book Beyond Bah Humbug: Why Lying to Your Children about Santa Claus Is a Bad Idea. Posing as Miss Kane, the children's new nanny, Carol pulls out all the stops to show Ben how fun Christmas can be, all the while struggling to understand how one man could hate the holidays so much.

Becoming Supernatural marries the some of the most profound scientific information with ancient wisdom to show how people like you and me can experience a more mystical life. Listeners will learn that we are quite literally supernatural by nature if given the proper knowledge and instruction, and when we learn how to apply that information through various meditations we should experience a greater expression of our creative abilities; that we have the capacity to tune in to frequencies beyond our material world and receive more orderly, coherent streams of consciousness and energy.

The man was gorgeous, sitting astride his Harley Davidson, mysteriously parked on a moonlit strip of sand. At thirty-seven, Christine Moore had a world-class case of burnout: career blues, no husband, no children, an imperfect figure, and dimming expectations. "I'm going to show you a peace so beautiful you'll probably forget what your life has been like up until now," he said. Who was this guy?

Whatever you are looking for in life - whether it's more money, improved health, better relationships, more free time, a greater sense of well-being, or a fancier car - you'll often get it faster if you try less.
