April 8th, Eyes of an Angel by Dan Yates

This book was a quick, easy read. Allison Barker gets to be a guardian angel for her husband, Ivan. Ivan has some serious trials to over come. Allison gets special permission to allow Ivan to see her. At first he thinks he's gone crazy, but then comes to believe her. This story involves kidnappings, an unsolved murder, ransom money, being framed for a murder and many other things. I liked his style of writing.

Dan Yates is a former Bishop and high councilor. He likes to write about angels. Here's what some of his previous novels are:
Angels Don't Knock
Just Call Me an Angel
Angels to the Rescue
An Angel in the Family
It Takes an Angel
An Angel's Christmas
An Angel on Vacation
An Angel in Time

I look forward to reading more of his books.

Fields of Home-Rachel Ann Nunes

This book is about a women who is deeply in love with a man when she is younger and he abandons her and then she finds out she is pregnant with his baby. She marries someone else and is happy yet is still in love with this other man. He returns many years later and that is what the book is about. I am one the fence about this one. First because typically this author writes LDS fiction, and this book had nothing about the church in it- although it was clean and it did talk about religion and God, which was okay but not LDS fiction to me. Second is was a bit predictable and like other books of this nature a little untrue to real life... that said it was an okay read for me.

Toss the Guilt and Catch the Joy

This book is by Merrilee Boyack. It is about how to feel less guilty about the things we feel guilt over in our lives, and how to be happier. I really enjoyed this book, in fact I bought it because I intend to refer back to it as necessary. It was nice to "learn" how to let go of feeling guilty and have more joy and be happier. The author is LDS, and she is a very good writer and this was a enjoyable, great read. I highly recommend it.

Fablehaven 1- Brandon Mull

I've been reading Fablehaven with my 10 year old son every night. We just finished the book tonight. I was surprised at how much I liked it. It's not my usual liking, but it kept my attention. I look forward to reading the 2nd book with him. This is a good one to read with your kids.
