Made the Grade: The Three Sisters Inn Series, Book 1

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 643 KB | Release Date: April 1, 2013 | Publisher: Love Inspired Suspense

"Hide in Plain Sight" [The Three Sisters Inn Series, Book 1] by Marta Perry

My Book Summary : Financial expert Andrea is rushing home to Churchville, PA (also known as Amish Country), to help her family and their inn they are trying to start up. She has been against the idea of the inn from the beginning, but with her younger sisters recent hit-and-run accident she has to help out, and being the oldest sister that means she needs to take charge.

However, once she gets there she finds her grandmother loves having her there, wants her to help with the inn as much as she can, but doesn't want Andrea to help with their financial struggles. In addition, she finds out that some people in the community really don't want the inn to be operational and might try to have it so the inn never opens at all costs.

To top it all off Andrea meets Cal, her grandmother's tenant, who is living and works in the renovated barn behind the inn and he's keeping his own secrets....

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! I wasn't expecting to like this book when I started reading it but I was pleasantly surprised! The plot was very well written. Good characters.

Book Teaser :
"There's someone, a man, out on the east side of the house."
"Andrea?" His voice sharpened. "Are you sure?"
"The lightening makes it as bright as day. He's there, watching the house. We didn't put lights---"
They hadn't thought they needed to where there were no outbuildings to be broken into. Maybe the intruder's goal wasn't the outbuildings. Maybe it was the house itself. ~ within Chapter 6

When you find yourself ...

Who knew I would like Amish stories? I certainly didn't, or didn't realize that I would enjoy them as much as I did. But I guess when you look at it if it is a really good romance story and the plot really catches your interest then anything is possible. =0) And that's what I found with "Hidden" (part of the Sisters of the Heart series) by Shelley Shepard Gray.

This is the first story in the Sisters of the Heart series. I'm not sure if I'll read the others anytime soon, but after reading the first chapter the book held my interest and I couldn't put it down. It's an easy read (under 300 pages) about Anna, a woman who really has no direction in life and finds herself in an abusive relationship. After trying to talk to her family and police about her situation, and everyone not believing her, she turns to the last people she can think of her friend Katie's family who are apart of the Amish community in Pennsylvania. They take her in, and she earns her keep while hiding from her abuser and everyone she knows as she thinks her loved ones who inform him of her location. While doing so she grows as a person, gains a special relationship/friendship, and feels happier then she has in a long time. But what will she be able to go back to the life she just left??

It was a very good story ... if you don't mind it being full of detail yet short ... I give it 5 out of 5 stars. I'm not sure if I'll read the other stories in the series but you never know, since I did love the main characters in this book.

To find out more about this book, series, or other of her books ... then check out Shelley Shepard Gray's website.

Made the Grade: One Night That Changes Everything by Lauren Barnholdt

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 242 | Release Date: July 2010 | Publisher: Simon Pulse

"One Night That Changes Everything" by Lauren Barnholdt

My Book Summary : In this high school in Massachusetts there is a secret fraternity called the 318s, and they just recently picked their latest prank victim: Eliza. Eliza knew about the group but it's an anonymous type so most of the student body doesn't really know who the actual members are or not. However, about 3 weeks ago or so, she recently decided on going through her boyfriend's, Cooper's, items while she was by herself in his room and came across his initiation process.

While doing so, she read the sheet that listed a bunch of point rankings for kissing, etc. that Cooper would have to do with Eliza. Making it so that their whole relationship was based on a lie and she broke up with him because of it.

NOW ... the 318s are getting revenge on her (because she outted one of their members) by stealing her notebook. But it wasn't just any kind of diary/notebook it was a place she kept things she was afraid of doing (like asking a guy to dance) or saying (like the things she wishes she had the guts to tell her friends, family, or other people).

But stealing her notebook was just the first step. The 318s try to freak her out by getting her to do some of the things she wrote in the notebook. If she doesn't do as they say, they plan to publish the notebook online.

So, with the help of her two best friends Eliza runs around Massachusetts during a night that will change her forever. Doing things, she would usually be to scare to do. Trying to out smart parents and cops. Having Cooper with her throughout the experience. Making her wonder why Cooper's trying to help her, if he even cares about her, or if he's just pulling together a personal prank all on his own.

Will she be able to get her notebook back before she reveals more then she should or even a secret that's in the book but not her own?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars!! It's a sweet book about a girl who feels she has lost her most prized possession, just to have to turn up into the "enemy's" hands. So, she goes out of her way to do what they say to get it back. But just when you think things are going one direction the secondary characters make decisions of their own Eliza world turns into something you never thought would happen. I highly recommend it for those who like sweet teeny romances, with a girl power kick to it. =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
I approach them gingerly, not really sure exactly where to begin. I mean, what do I say, "Oh, hi, Nigel, I have to kiss you now?," "Wanna make out?," or maybe just "I'll give you twenty dollars if you kiss me." I pull my shirt down a little, because I figure I need all the help I can get. ~ within Chapter 6

Feasted On: Just One Wish by Janette Rallison

Format: Kindle Edition | File Size: 342 KB | Release Date: March 2009 | Publisher: Putnam Juvenile Books

"Just One Wish" by Janette Rallison

My Book Summary : The ultimate fantasy ... you meet a movie/TV star and they fall in love with you right away ... that's what happens in this sweet, funny, and touching story.

Annika would do just about anything for her little brother Jeremy, more so now then ever since her family found out that he has cancer. Nothing is off limits to make him happy. So, when she rushes to Toys "R" Us with her best friend Madison during the day after Thanksgiving sale for a Teen Robin Hood action figure for Jeremy, since it's all he seems to talk about as of late, she thinks no problem. Even when it comes down to dealing with a wormy older guy who just happens to be hording all of the Robin Hood figurines, no big deal.

But when she makes up this story for Jeremy that she received three wishes from a genie a while back, she has two wishes left, and she would like to give those two wishes to him ... things don't go as planned. She told him that one of the wishes would be for him to come out of his upcoming surgery with flying colors and the other one could be for anything he wanted. Well she assumed he would ask for that specific figurine but instead Jeremy wishes to have Robin Hood meet him and teach him more about archery! Thankfully when Annika told Jeremy that some wishes take a while to fulfill he believed her. Now the problem is how in the world is she going to get Steve Raleigh, the actor who portrays Teen Robin Hood, to come and visit Jeremy before his surgery in a week?

And she'll stop at nothing to make this happen ...

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars!! This was a great book!!! I loved it! The characters were portrayed wonderfully! I loved the banter between Steve and Annika! And Oh My God the stuff she could come up with at the drop of a hat! My only wish was that it was longer!!

Book Teaser(s) :
I bent down to have a one-on-one with Herman.
"Look, just be a good snake for the day and then we'll take you back to the pet store, okay?" I took the lid off and tried to remember how the lady at the pet store had picked him up. Was it headfirst or by the middle? I reached in and lifted him out of the cage. He at once wrapped himself around my arm, which I hoped was not a sign he was trying to eat me. ~ within Chapter 6
