Where Trust Lies

Beth Thatcher is home for the summer. Leaving Coal Valley was hard, especially because it meant leaving Jarrick behind. Upon her return she is surprised with the information that she will be going on a cruise with her sisters and mother. At first hesitant, she begins to enjoy herself and the beauty of the land they travel too. Julie, Beth's sister is determined to enjoy herself on her vacation, and so befriends some young people her age, and begins to prefer their company to her families. But when her sisters meet these friends, they both have a feeling something is amiss. Against their better judgment they ignore their initial feelings.. Then disaster strikes and the whole family is forced to rally together. Will this ordeal change Julia? And how will Beth's romance hold up under this trial? After reading the first book, I was excited to read more of the story. I admit I was t as interested in the cruise ship story as I was her experience out West. But I enjoyed it enough to look forward to fishing it. It was a little predicatBle and ended abruptly. But i still want read the third in this series when it comes out. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a revIew

Rooted In Design

Succulents, potted plants, wall hangings. Bring your love for all things gardening indoors when you use these creative ideas for growing all you can imagine in your home. I was excited to get this book. I thought it would be perfect for a plant killer like myself. I was a little disappointed. While I can say they had some creative ideas, and made you think outside the box, a lot of the photos were very ordinary. And quite honestly, unappealing. I thought a lot of the photos looked like something from a seventies gardening magazine, and the others just very unkempt and nothing I'd want to emulate. The idea was good, just not executed very well in my opinion. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a review.
