Ward

READ
Not Another Bad Date (Writer Friends, #4) by Rachel Gibson****Just a really cute little story. Very fast read!
Witness in Death (In Death, #10) by J.D. Robb***** I have to say this is one of my favorite of the series. Eve is finally getting a little more in touch with her vulnerable side. I love that Eve and Summerset still work so hard to annoy each other. But, behind the scenes he is working just as hard to take care of Eve.

A Highlander Christmas (Highlander, #7) by Janet Chapman**** I really like the Highlander series by Janet Chapman. Let's face it, just about everyone has done a Highlander series of some sort, so it can't be easy. Janet tends to combine the perfect combination of easy, relaxing read and good storyline that keeps you interested.

Shiver (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #1) by Maggie Stiefvater **The story of Jack and Grace is a very sweet one. However, that's about the best thing I can say about this book. It was so long and drawn out. I seriously wanted to put the book down and walk away a million times. It was almost torturous.
