Tangled Webs by Irene Hannon

 Tangled Webs by Irene Hannon is the third and final book in the Men of Valor series. What I love most about this author is her ability to write such a strong story that I forget everything going on around me and just read. Tangled Webs is no different, the action begins on the very first page and draws the reader into the middle of a story filled with intrigue, mystery, drama, and romance. This author can always be counted on for a clean read. I had a very hard time putting this book down. Loved it!

5 Minutes with Jesus A Fresh Infusion of Joy by Sheila Walsh and Sherri Gragg

 5 Minutes with Jesus - A Fresh Infusion of Joy, by Sheila Walsh and Sherri Gragg is a nice little devotional with a powerful punch. There are about fifty devotions in this book, each one written from the heart. Sheila includes many personal stories and at the end you feel like you've met her and have spent time with a friend. There are scriptures at the end of each 2-3 page musing. Very nicely written and one to keep on hand for those days when you need an extra boost.

Earth Psalms by Francine Rivers and Karin Stock Buursma

 Earth Psalms by Francine Rivers with Karin Stock Buursma is a beautiful nature book with some prayers, scripture, and reflections. It would make a nice gift or nightstand book. The pictures are lovely, birds and nature scenes. The writings are inspirational with the author's memories scattered throughout. A must for any die-hard Francine Rivers fans.

The Road We Traveled by Jane Kirkpatrick

 The Road We Traveled by Jane Kirkpatrick is based on actual events along the Oregon Trail. I tried to get into this book because I've been fascinated by her other historical writings but I just couldn't. I made it to almost page 100 and then quit because it didn't grab my attention, I didn't care about the characters, and it was very slow-moving. I've enjoyed many other books by this author but this one just didn't do it for me.

Wee Alphas

 Oh my goodness, look at this! Adorable alphabet and animal themed postcards. Great for sending little notes in lunch boxes, teaching letters and animals to children, or just for mailing to a friend. These unfold accordion-style and are just delightful. Each one will cause a smile to come to the face of whoever is the recipient. What a fun way to keep in touch.
