1. Review: The Jade Notebook

Zeeta and her mother Layla have moved to a new country every year for Zeeta's entire life. When they end up running cabanas in Mazunte, Mexico, Zeeta is determined to make it stick. After all, her beloved Wendell has an internship nearby and her long-lost father is supposedly from Mazunte. Of course, nothing can be that easy, especially when the cabanas where Zeeta lives are said to be cursed and someone is poaching the sea turtles' eggs. Laura Resau's fans will love The Jade Notebook, the final book in the Notebook trilogy.

2. Review: On the Bright Side


An unfortunate incident sends 14 year old Gabby to the afterlife WAY before she is ready. First thing on her afterlife journey...witnessing her wake. Not only is she mortified that her mother dressed her in the worst, most non-flattering, white, pleated pants for all eternity, but her least favorite person in the whole world, Angela Black, shows up acting like she is a super model at a fashion show instead of a funeral. Read the full review here.

3. Heidi Thomas, Author and Editor




It's always so interesting to learn about writers, 
such as where they come from, how they 
became involved with  writing,  and what
 motivates them. Well, we'll learn about author 
and editor, Heidi Thomas,  and her young 
adult novel, Cowgirl Dreams.

 
Heidi is a longtime writer, a journalist and a 
pre-published novelist. In addition to writing 
for herself, she edits manuscripts for others and 
teaches classes in Memoir and Beginning Fiction 
Writing. 
 
Raised on a ranch in isolated eastern Montana, Heidi Thomas has had 
a penchant for reading and writing since she was a child. Armed with a 
degree in journalism from the University of Montana, she worked for 
the Daily Missoulian newspaper, and has had numerous magazine articles
 published.
 
A tidbit of family history, that her grandmother rode steers in rodeos 
during the 1920s, spurred Heidi to write  a novel based on that 
grandmother’s life.

4. Review: Unforsaken by Sophie Littlefield



Hailey Tarbell is still struggling to come to grips with her special gift as a Healer and the good that it can do.  And even more so with the horrific effects it can have if her gift is harnessed and used by the wrong people.  She has already experienced this firsthand.  An experience she never wants to happen again.  Click here to read my full review.
