Future Perfect Book Review:

Now back in print after many years, a captivating story of sweet seduction and unexpected love from New York Times bestselling author Suzanne Brockmann Dressed in Victorian attire, Juliana Anderson gives guests at her cozy New England bed and breakfast a taste of old-fashioned hospitality. Whether she's cooking up delights in her kitchen or maintaining the rooms in her beautifully decorated inn, Juliana stays busy and content. Until Webster Donovan arrives--tall, rugged, and sexy beyond belief. The lean, dark-haired author has a bad case of writer's block and he's planned a six-week stay to cure it. But this beautiful woman is proving even more distracting to the cause. For prim, polite Juliana has a wild side: She rides a Harley and hides a troubled past. The moment Webster watches her take off her motorcycle helmet and shake loose those long, flame-colored curls, he finds his muse--and loses his heart. But can romance with a woman afraid to trust in love last longer than a moment in time?

Wisdom's Children Book Review:

"Wisdom's Children is an inspired guide to the needs of today's children many of whom simply do not respond to our current educational system. Reading this information brings greater understanding and healing." Dr. Christiane Northrup author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom (Bantam, 2005), The Wisdom of Menopause (Bantam, 2001), and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom (Bantam, 1998) While in meditation, I sensed the familiar urging of my inner voice, and reached for a pen "Children are arriving in vast numbers to assist in the crossover to an enlightened age. They are a new prototype of human being, and their 'soul' purpose is to help humanity return to love." Wisdom's Children describes a new generation of highly sensitive children whose heightened vibration and consciousness can bring about a transformation in the hearts of humanity. It blends metaphysical information the author received intuitively with her experiences as a teacher and a parent. She has witnessed the beauty of these children as they struggle to adapt to a world and an outmoded educational system that doesn't recognize their expanded perceptions and abilities. "The young beings among you carry an intuitive knowledge of universal truth and reflect your deepest longing as spiritual beings: to live in harmony with each other and the earth."

Wag is a charismatic and mischievous character. A soon-to-be Boston Pizza franchise owner, he likes to push people’s buttons and takes life to the extreme. After an evening out with his wife in Calgary, he decides to drive back to his temporary home in Lethbridge to make his early morning shift, hoping he can make it back in time to catch a few hours of sleep before a head office inspection. The next thing he remembers is his wife screaming. Wanting someone to help her, he tries to call out but realizes that he can barely speak, let alone open his eyes. Finally, only remembering sensations and sounds, he wakes up in Calgary Hospital, where he learns that he fell asleep behind the wheel and drove into a deep ditch, leaving him as a C5-C6 quadriplegic. Filled with anger and disbelief, he lashes out at those around him. His wife, who is unharmed, tries to remain hopeful, which infuriates him. He begins to spiral into the universal five stages of grief, moving back and forth between denial and anger as he begins his six month stay at the hospital. Though he finds strength and relief from fellow patients and their views on life, Wag’s anger and depression define him, and those around him wonder how he’ll survive once he’s thrust into the realities of the walking world. Full of dark humour and raw vulnerability, 4 and 1⁄2 Steps delves into the challenges Wag faces both emotionally and physically as he adjusts to his new stage of life.

Where We Are Book Review:

From USA Today bestselling author Kaira Rouda, a collection of four of her bestselling, award-winning women's fiction stories all sharing the upscale suburban setting of Grandville, Ohio. Winner! Indie Excellence Book Award Mainstream/Literary Fiction Winner! USA Book Awards Women's Fiction Honorable Mention! Mainstream/Literary Fiction, Writer's Digest Book Awards HERE, HOME, HOPE: Kelly Johnson becomes restless in her thirty-ninth year. An appetite for more forces her to take stock of her middling middle-American existence and her neighbors' seemingly perfect lives. Her marriage to a successful attorney has settled into a comfortable routine, and being the mother of two adorable sons has been rewarding. But Kelly's own passions lie wasted. She eyes with envy the lives of her two best friends, Kathryn and Charlotte, both beautiful, successful businesswomen who seem to have it all. Kelly takes charge of her life, devising a midlife makeover plan. "Reading Kaira Rouda is like getting together with one of your best friends - fun, fast, and full of great advice! Here, Home, Hope sparkles with humor and heart." --Claire Cook, bestselling author of Must Love Dogs ALL THE DIFFERENCE: Once again, everything isn't what it seems in the wonderful suburb of Grandville. This is the story of three women whose lives become entangled by the choices they make and how, ultimately, one of them turns to murder to achieve her goals. "There are few things more entertaining than stories revealing the seamy underside of suburban life." -- The US Review of Books RECOMMENDED "An intriguing cast of characters and an untimely death set the stage for a chick-lit, murder mystery in Rouda's (Here, Home, Hope, 2011) latest novel. A light, engaging read that keeps readers guessing until the end." -- KIRKUS Reviews IN THE MIRROR: Jennifer Benson is a woman who seems to have it all. Diagnosed with cancer, she enters an experimental treatment facility to tackle her disease the same way she tackled her life - head on. But while she's busy fighting for a cure, running her business, planning a party, staying connected with her kids, and trying to keep her sanity, she ignores her own intuition and warnings from others and reignites an old relationship best left behind. If you knew you might die, what choices would you make? How would it affect your marriage? How would you live each day? And how would you say no to the one who got away? "Rouda writes with a fluent, psychologically subtle realism that cuts Jennifer’s pathos (and occasional self-pity) with humor and irony, and she surrounds her with characters—doting dad; vain, shallow mom; mensch of a gay business partner; sarcastic gal pals—who are sharply etched and entertaining. Jennifer is a winning heroine, and readers will undoubtedly root for her as she reaches for a more mature, if achingly uncertain, future. An absorbing story of a woman grasping at life in the midst of death. ~ Kirkus Reviews A MOTHER'S DAY: A SHORT STORY Three mothers. Three sons. One day that connects them. Kaira Rouda tackles the big issues of life and death with candor and hope in this tribute to motherhood. A tragic event reawakens each woman to her own special gifts, and her love for family and friends is reborn. Three mothers. Three sons. Six lives that will be changed forever.

Later editing by others removed about 25% of the material contained in the first five chapters and made numerous editorial changes which affected both the tone and the content of the message. Many students consider study of the unabridged JCIM version to be indespensible in their curriculum.Text only.

Who's Packing Your Retirement Parachute? Book Review:

This book will help you focus on how to make your life meaningful and full. It provides guidance about how to make the most from life through the maintenance of your physical health, emotional wellbeing, and a sound financial portfolio. Each chapter offers common sense solutions to help you focus your life on the issues that you think are most important. It is basically a motivation and time management concept.This book is about vision and quality of life objectives that you were not able to achieve in your daily life but that you want to fulfill in the "golden" years of our life. Reading it should give you the desire and discipline to attain any objective that you have ever dreamed about. It provides a road map to success that you may have thought was part of your past and never to be seen again.For most of us, moving from middle age to "senior" citizen comes around the age of 55. The "gold" in the golden years is the opportunity to choose what we will do to fulfill our life dream. Many people would challenge the "gold" in the golden years because along with the freedom of choice and ability to enjoy the rewards of our lifelong efforts comes the illnesses and maladies of old age. We are all familiar with the bad ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, and kidney and heart problems that come with aging. However, these obstacles can be overcome with replacement surgery and raw desire (intestinal fortitude.) The primary objective of this book is to overcome obstacles and challenges to live a life of happiness and bliss in retirement.

Life is Not a Game of Perfect Book Review:

Most people think talent is genetically determined. Either you can sing or you can't. You get calculus or it's beyond you. You have what it takes to succeed -- or you don't. The truth about human performance is far more encouraging, says Dr. Bob Rotella in Life Is Not a Game of Perfect. Dr. Rotella, the bestselling author of Golf Is Not a Game of Perfect and Golf Is a Game of Confidence, believes that talent, as conventionally defined and measured, plays a secondary role in determining one's fate. Far more important is real talent, a combination of character, attitude, and devotion, which makes greatness possible. And the good news is that anyone can develop real talent. As always, Dr. Bob Rotella speaks from experience. He has made a career of helping people chase and catch their dreams. His authority as a sports psychologist is well known. Golfers from Tom Kite to David Duval to Pat Bradley have relied on him to help them break through to triumphs on the PGA Tour. But Bob Rotella's practice extends beyond the sports world. He is a consultant on performance enhancement to leading businesses such as Merrill Lynch, General Electric, and PepsiCo. He has worked with successful people in businesses ranging from law to entertainment. From hundreds of clients and countless students, Dr. Bob Rotella has learned what works. In Life Is Not a Game of Perfect, he shares what he has learned and what he teaches his clients. Real talent, he explains, is "brilliance of a different sort." It is the nerve to choose a career doing something you love or the ability to learn to love what you do. It is courage, persistence, and determination. It is the ability to handle failure and honor commitments. Whether you think so or not, real talent is within your grasp. In Life Is Not a Game of Perfect, Dr. Bob Rotella will help you make it a decisive element in your life. He can show you how to identify and cultivate the qualities that lead to success, prosperity, and happiness.

But the Greatest of These Is Love Book Review:

This new Thought System emphasizes application rather than theology. It specifically states that a universal religion is impossible, but a Universal Experience is not only possible, but also necessary. This Universal Experience is Love. Universal means that all of the billions of people who have passed through this world since time began and all of the people who are here now (seven billion) would know God. God is Love. To know Gods Love within is to know God. Where learning ends, there is Love. Love is not learned. There was never a time in which you knew it not. Once this new perception of God is accepted, then everything changes. The quiet Voice of Love will help you to reinterpret everything you have been taught as fearful and that makes you feel guilty and will change them to... only what is loving is true. There are no rules and regulations to obey. You need do nothing. The Power of Love will set you free. It is not through any of your efforts. Here is the ultimate release, which everyone will one day find in his own way, at his own time. Think about this: If Love is the primary focus of your life, what are you going to do wrong? - Fear God and keep His commandments becomes Know God and accept His Certainty. According to Wikepedia, it is estimated that there are approximately 4,200 religions in the world today. I say But the Greatest of These is Love.
