Armed with an endless supply of chocolate bars, Joan is ready to face life head on, and she just might come out a winner!

Evidence By: Clair M Poulson

This book was amazing. We started it on a trip to Island Park. We all thought that it was a different person. As I neared the end of the book I was happy to have guessed the right person, but then there was the twist that you would never suspect! It was fast paced and had you going clear till the end.
Cody Lind has just finished the perfect date with the most beautiful girl in town. As the seventeen-year-old slips the key into the car ignition, cold steel touches the back of his neck. "Don't look back or you'll die," says a muffled voice. "Just start it up and drive. I'll tell you where to go."
Soon, the disappearance of one of Harrisville's favorite sons and the arrival of an ominous ransom note send ripples of terror throughout the small town. Now it's up to Sheriff Vince Hanks and his deputy, Peggy Smith, to unravel the mystery. But as they encounter unremitting obstacles in the investigation, they realize that no one is above suspicion. It seems Cody wasn't popular with everyone. Especially not with the five major suspects-each with his own dark motives. When one of the suspects ends up being murdered, the duo knows that Cody's kidnapper is deadly serious, and that time may be running out.

Eggs, Eggs, Eggs!

Around May or June Mom stopped buying eggs from the store and we started getting them from our neighbor. We can't keep eggs in the house anymore. Yesterday I boiled two pans of eggs. I had always just watched Mom do it. Then today I decided I wanted to try my hand at poaching an egg. It was delicious, though the yolk could have stood to be a little more solid. I also made my first omelet. It turned out amazing. This is all thanks to What'

A Time To Die By: Jeffrey S. Savage

I loved this book. It had me listening and listening. I just couldn't stop!! This is book three in the Sandra Covington mystery.

When reporter Shandra Covington finds her best friend, Bobby Richter, close to death on Shandra's apartment floor, she knows the bullet was meant for her. Making matters worse, Bobby's fiance is making sure Shandra gets nowhere near the hospital room where Bobby lies in a coma. With her apartment in shambles and possibly still dangerous, Shandra is forced to stay with her tough-as-nails Harley-riding private investigator friend. In an attempt to clear her mind, Shandra agrees to do a newspaper story on the death of a prominent politician's daughter. But what she thought was a simple overdose story soon grows into something much more sinister when she finds a common thread with the recent deaths of several young women-all thought to be overdose victims. What do the clues mean? The only person who knows for sure is the Time Keeper-a self-proclaimed true romantic who devotedly tapes a picture of each new love to the bedside wall of his ailing sister. However, the pictures are obituaries spreading across the wall like macabre wallpaper. Time to unravel the mystery is quickly ticking away as Bobby's life hangs by a thread-and the next "girlfriend" on the Time Keeper's list is Shandra.

When he finds out she is already engaged, he must struggle with his personal code of honor. Is it fair for him to pursue Katherine when she apparently loves someone else? Or is it his only chance to be Loved Like That?
