First Mountain Man by William Johnstone: It was a great book.
Deception by Jonathan Kellerman: Kellerman was not up to par on this book. Too many unneccesary words leading to nowhere. I was glad when it was over, even the ending was flat.
Down the Long Hills by Louis L'Amour: I think the book was great. The author did a very good job.
Dark Canyon by Louis L'Amour: It was a great book.
Hanging Woman Creek by Louis L'Amour: It was a great book.
The Wife's Tale by Lori Lansens: This was a very good book on a very touchy subject-being over weight. One never stops to think that there may be circumstances in a person's life that makes them find comfort in food. When the story ended I wasn't ready to let it go. It left me wanting more.
The Short Second LIfe of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer: An excellent snapshot into the minds of the so-called "enemies" in the Twilight Series. The only thing I didn't like about this book was that it was too short. Now I am curious about a new character named "Fred" the author introduced.
Cast Iron Cuisine by Matt and Linda Morehouse: Excellent book. Terrific recipes. Very informational.
Notes from the dog by Gary Paulsen: This was a great book (actually for young adults). It speaks to making family.

Ever think Scrooge had it right before the ghosts ruined his life? Meet Aidan O'Conner.
At one time he was a world-renowned celebrity who gave freely of himself and his money without wanting anything in return...until those around him took without asking. Now Aidan wants nothing of the world--or anyone who's a part of it.
When a stranger appears at his doorstep, Aidan knows he's seen her before...in his dreams.
Born on Olympus as a goddess, Leta knows nothing of the human world. But a ruthless enemy has driven her from the world of dreams and into the home of the only man who can help her: Aidan. Her immortal powers are derived from human emotions--and his anger is just the fuel she needs to defend herself...
One cold winter's night will change their lives forever...
Trapped together in a brutal winter storm, Aidan and Leta must turn to the only power capable of saving them--or destroying them both: trust.
