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!

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.

Priceless by Joel and Luke Smallbone with Nancy Rue

 While I'm not a fan of Christian movies I am a fan of the novels based on them and also a fan of Nancy Rue. Nancy has written some of the best books I've read over the past ten years. This time she teamed up with Joel and Luke Smallbone to novelize their screenplay for the upcoming film, Priceless. This is the story of a man who unwittingly gets in over his head when delivering a package to Reno. What he thinks is innocent work turns out to be human trafficking. James has had a few years of bad luck and this seems to top it all off. His actions afford the chance to make a big difference in the lives of women trapped in a world they didn't choose. Well written and thought provoking. The film is sure to be a big hit in Christian circles. The book ended a little too quickly for my tastes.

The Christmas Angel Project by Melody Carlson

The Christmas Angel Project is likely the best Christmas novella I've ever read. This delightful tale centers around four friends held together by the memory of the death of a mutual friend. The four women try to navigate their way through the Christmas season without their dear friend and find her memory gives way to life changing decisions and experiences. I adored everything about this book until the last two sentences. Then I just wanted to toss it across the room. Aside from the way the book ended (at the very end) I loved this book and recommend it to anyone who wants an inspiring holiday themed read.
