The Sugar Ticket by Susan Ricci

     Cindy's life hadn't been easy. A special needs brother and a failed marriage later, she wasn't sure where she was headed.  Cindy then had an encounter with a real creepy jerk that left her shaken.  Her friend Julie told her it was time to get out there and find a man to love. Jay happen into Cindy's life and things begin to change.  She knew they'd be happy forever. 

     I fell in love with this book right away. I could relate to Cindy on many levels. It was nice to read a book where the main character isn't perfect in every way.  The writing is so well done it makes this one an easy read.  The humor in this book just made it that much better.  A lot of what through Cindy's mind enters most women's minds at some point.  Get this book because you are gonna recommend it to everyone you know.  Ms. Ricci is a master storyteller. 

     I found no issues with this one.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it is magnificent. 

Captain No Beard and The Aurora Borealis by Carole P. Roman

     The Captain and his crew are on a new mission. This mission will take them through snow and ice. It will be dangerous.  The reward will be worth it though.  Captain No  Beard and his crew are sailing North. He's decided he wants the Aurora Borealis.  The crew explain to him it's wrong to take it without permission.  After thinking about it, the crew come up with a way he can have the Aurora Borealis without taking it.

     What a perfect book for this time of year.  It's colorful illustrations make it easy for littles to follow the story.  The writing is just right for littles to get the message that what Captain No Beard wants to do is wrong.  Children will love this book.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it's so colorful and informative. 

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

     Time to check out Peru!  The country is a lively one with old customs.  It's scenery will take your breath away.  We can learn so much from talking with the locals and visiting historic places.  I know we will all have fun.

     This book really makes learning a joy.  I found littles who enjoyed every word. They had tons of questions too.  The writing and illustrations help parents make learning an adventure not a chore.  Your littles will love this book too.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it's a wonderful joy to read. 

If You Were Me And Lived In...Greece by Carole P. Roman

     Let's go to Greece and learn about this beautiful old country.  Many of the things we have today started in Greece. We just need to look around.  Wherever you look Greece shows the remnants of it's majestic past.  

     I love these books. A chance to teach our children about places they may never visit.  It's written so well the children can easily understand it.  The illustrations are amazing.  The little in your life will want to read these again and again.

     I found no issues.

      When Supernatural Investigation Bureau agent Bluebell Kildare (a.k.a. Blue) arrives at the scene of the crime, it's obvious the grotesquely damaged body of the deceased teenage boy was caused by far more than a simple hit and run; and she vows to catch the killer. Using her innate sixth sense, Blue uncovers a powerful magical artifact nearby. She soon discovers it acts as a key to an ancient Grimoire that was instrumental in the creation of the Vampire breed and still holds the power to unravel the boundaries between Earth and the Plane of Fire.

Blue and her clever wolf Varg follow a trail that starts at the Cock and Bull Tap and leads all through the town of Crimson Hollow. Between being sidelined by a stalker who sticks to the shadows and chasing a suspect who vanishes in thin air, the case is getting complicated. If that isn't enough, Dark Vampire activity hits a record high, and hate crimes are increasing. However, it's Blue’s growing feelings for Jack Tanner, her sexy Daylight Vampire boss, that just might undo her.

While Blue searches for clues to nail the perpetrator, it seems someone else is conducting a search of their own. Who will find whom first?

Danger lurks in every corner, and Blue needs all her focus in this increasingly dangerous game or she risks ending up the next victim.

Bluebell Kildare: Blue is a Supernatural Homicide Detective and a gifted empath who has a pure spirit and a will of steel. She was orphaned at a young age and has had a tough life so far. Yet, she continually picks herself up by the boot straps and fights to do what is right, regardless of the cost. Just how high will the cost be?

Jack Tanner:He's Blue's sexy boss, the head of the Supernatural Homicide Unit in Crimson Hollow. Jack is very old and powerful Daylight Vampire with many layers. He is driven a little crazy by his desire to protect Blue in the face of her independence. Can he keep his cool when Blue needs him most?
Varg: He is a great grey wolf who comes out of nowhere and decides to be Blue's companion. He seems to have some mysterious magical abilities and uses them to guard Blue's life. Can he keep her safe?
Maud:She is Blue's dear friend and mother figure. Maud used to visit Blue in the orphanage and read to her as a child. She can't cook but she makes awesome Southern beverages. What color is her hair today? Is it blue, fuchsia, scarlet, or peach sherbet?
Alexis: She is Blue's comrade and neighbor, as well as the sassy owner of a store called Herbal Enchantments. She is gifted in earth magic and if she isn't busy feeding her friends, she's telling them what to do. Does she have her hands on her hips right now, or is she waving her finger at Blue?

The Villain:Can he get any more evil? No. He is about as evil as they come . . .

Lilo Abernathy is a somewhat eccentric, deep-thinking, warm-hearted young woman of at least 43 years. She started out as a restaurant chain hostess and worked her way up to the exciting world of global mergers and acquisitions. She has enjoyed an on again/off again relationship with formal education and has beenaffectionately referred to as information hound. In the evenings, she fills her writing breaks by scanning the internet for answers to provocative questions, such as: "What causes diamonds to be formed in different colors?"

One thing that never changes is Lilo's ongoing love affair with books. A born bibliophile, by age ten she finished all the children's books in the house and started devouring the adult section. By age 15, she was working her way through grocery store book aisles and libraries. Just as Picasso had his blue period, Lilo had her own periods of readership--urban fantasy, paranormal romance, Gothic novels, etc. Now she's planning on creating a bookshelf for you to enjoy.

Our Feet Were Made For Walking by Paul M. Kramer

     Kate didn't walk unless she had to.  She felt like it wasn't worth her time.  She was told it was good to walk and fun too.  Kate just grumbled.  Then one day she had no choice, she had to walk.  Kate began to walk a bit more each day and liked it.  Kate's friends joined her on her walks.  Soon they'd inspired many in their town to walk too.  They walked for fun and to help raise money.  

     This book inspired me to walk more.  It made me remember what it was like before I got my driver's license.  It will help you and your children get involved with walking too.  It's an easy way to raise money for any organization.  Just get sponsors and then walk.  You'll love this book.

     I didn't find issues with this one.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it's a terrific reminder.

Why Are We Fat by Paul M. Kramer

     We each use for different things. Some use it to cope and some eat when they are bored.  We've become addicted to sugar and junk food.  We all need to re-educate ourselves about food.  After we learn more about food, we can then work on eating healthier.  Everyone works at their own pace.

     The opening poem in this one touched me deeply.  I so enjoy books for children that give information.  If they can get the message across I love them even more.  We as parents need to set examples and this is one area we need to work on.  Your kids will enjoy this book.  Most kids today want to learn about eating healthy.  Get this one.

     I found no issues.

     I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it makes a lot of sense.
