Armor of Glass by R.M.A. Spears

       Brick is a shy, unsure, quiet man who struggles with the dating scene.  He can't seem to find a date until one day his mother tells him SHE found a date for him.  Not brave enough to ask the woman face-to-face for a date, Brick calls Cameo to ask her out.  Cameo agrees to meet him though both she and Brick aren't sure what to expect.  When he first catches a glimpse of  Cameo, Brick knows he's in love with her.  Though they become great friends, nothing ever happens to make their relationship move forward.  
      Brick marries and works hard to provide a good life for his wife and children.  He had no way of knowing his wife would turn into the person she had become.  He had no way to prepare for the war about to begin.

     Phenomenal writing, this book will captivate you.  Characters you can love and those you love to hate make this book one to have. Heart wrenchingly beautiful, this love story is told from a male perspective.  It's powerful and moving.  I sobbed and cried. I was outraged and I was sad.  'Armor of Glass' pulls at every emotion.  The fact this book was brutally honest and direct is just one reason I loved it. I wanted to comfort Brick and Cameo. You have to get this book. It really is fabulous!

     I found no issues with this one.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because of the powerful love story it contains.

The Crew Goes Coconuts- A Captain No Beard Story by Carole P. Roman

     A new crew mate is on board - Matie the goat. The regular crew isn't happy about it either.  They think because of Matie they've gone through all their ice boxes on this hot, hot day.  The crew begin to bully and tease Matie, making her cry.  Then Captain No Beard steps in.

     A fantastic book for children.  The lessons this series teaches are invaluable.  This particular book teaches kids that no one is perfect.  It tells them teasing and bullying are wrong. I am so thrilled with this series of books.  I love a book with a little lesson in it. Children learn so much faster that way.  Captain No Beard will soon become a huge favorite read of the child in your life.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because the lesson is more important than ever in today's world.

     It's off to sunny and lively Portugal! Perhaps we will be in time for Carnevale.  We can enjoy food, music, parades and dancing. What fun!  Portugal is an old country and there are many things to see and learn there.  Are you excited? I am.

     Ms. Roman taps into the most fun and most interesting things about each country. I know the child in your life will enjoy this series as much as I do.  Easy to read, bright lovely illustrations and such fun. Get this series.

If You Were Me And Lived in .. Russia by Carole P Roman

     Grab your passport! It's time for a new adventure. This time we head to Russia.  The land of many ethnic groups and lots of cold weather.  We can even sample some local favorites and visit the sights.  

     This series of books are simply astounding!  Each one feels like a weekend trip. They are easy to  understand and educational too.  Children will enjoy learning how other children live in their part of the world.  I can't recommend these books enough. Get the whole series!

     I found only one issue..lol.. and it's my problem. I couldn't pronounce some of the Russian words. *smile*

The Cats of Savone by David-Michael Harding

     The Cats of Savone where the cats bring a ray of sunshine to a dismal place.  My Boo Radley teaches us not to judge a book by it's cover.  Black Men in Bright Blue reminds us of a time in history.  The Jazz Bridge can be more than just a bridge.  St. Alden's is a place of prestige and honor.  The Junket is a reminder that we all need someone.  Forever Beneath the Celtic Sea tells us karma does exist.  The History of West Texas According to Henry Bass, where kindness goes a long way. 

     Touching, inspiring and powerful! This book will fill your heart, soul and mind in a positive way. Mr. Harding weaves stories like no one else.  Each story is told with such caring and compassion you feel as if you know the characters involved personally. You will NEVER go wrong with a David-Michael Harding book.  He's a must get author for me. 

     I found no issues with this one.

      I gave this one 5 cheers plus out of 5. Mr. Harding touches me deeply with each book he writes.

Chasing Harpo by Alan Black

     Soldiers from Rwanda were in the area. Police knew they were gang related.  No one could ever imagine the chain of events that would take place over the next few days.  Carl knew nothing about the gang. He was trying to get up nerve to ask Terri out.  Then it happened. Now the police are chasing Carl and his friend Harpo with orders to shoot on sight. Can Carl keep Harpo safe? With a little help he just might be able to make this right.

     A fun read that, for me, was like checkin' up on relatives from the south! *smile* Well written and characters you'll love, this book will bring a smile to your face.  Mr. Black does a wonderful job of making this book come alive. I do recommend it.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I smiled and giggled through much of the book.
