Hope for Tomorrow, as with all the stories I’ve ever read by Elizabeth Maddrey, packs a wallop. As Skye struggles with an unknown disease and the loss of her job because of her poor health, she seeks the grandparents she had never known. She is an interesting combination of strong […]
If you have not yet read Love and Other Mistakes, you should probably pick up a copy and read that before reading this review or synopsis… You may remember Kimberly, the annoyingly perfect woman who competed with Natalie for the internship in Love and Other Mistakes. And you will, of […]
Oh what fun! When Jo was caught sneaking into Dave’s camp, nobody’s life was ever the same again. I loved the way Dave was so appalled by Jo and yet so captivated by her at the same time. And bewildered at her strange behavior and beliefs. The Nordegren sisters, having […]
I’m a little sad that this is the end of the Heart of the Mountains series though it is is nice to have it all wrapped up in such a wonderful way. The series started with Simeon Grant and ends with the daughter he adopted at the end of this […]

Each time we have wandered the trails, the overgrowth and destruction from previous hurricanes have prevented us from finding the correct path to get there. Yet we’ve been told (and seen the pictures) that the 200-year-old […]
Though the fire appeared to be out, the firefighters continues to comb through the remains to ensure there were no embers left to reignite into flames.
“Lookin’ for Love in All the Wrong Places” croons Johnny Lee. This song from the 1980’s was on the top of the charts for a few weeks – most likely because so many people can relate only too well.
“Reclaimed water. Do not drink!” I’ve seen this warning in multiple municipal areas and when I do, I hesitate to even get close enough to get sprayed by the flow. We’ve had electronics that have needed to be repaired during their warranty period and each time have discovered that once […]
Suddenly, I wasn’t sure where we were. Up until a few minutes ago, I had a really good sense that I was tracking where we were on our journey, but now. Not so much. My husband had a surprise destination for me and, to keep me in suspense, he decided […]
