Cyndere's Midnight By Jeffrey Overstreet

Hello to my Readers! 

I realize I am a bit late. :( I got caught in a bad rain storm coming back from town several hours ago. Since I have satellite internet, I then wound up with out 'net till now! So now here I am! But I am sure it isn't midnight some where, so maybe I am not too late! 

This was a wonderful book! I had just joined this group when I missed the first book,  Auralia's Colors . When the sequel came in, I couldn't stand it! I ordered Auralia's Colors as quickly as I could! I found it to be a really wonderful book, and I am so glad I got to read it before reading Cyndere's Midnight because I felt like I knew so much more of the history that lead up and into this book. 

In  Auralia's Colors we met a girl with a fantastic gift, who doesn't know why she has this gift or exactly what the purpose is, only that she *must* use it. She made some friends and fans along the way and in Cyndere's Midnight some of them are included. The town/palace had changed to a neighboring one. Here another girl name Cyndere dreams of taming the Beastmen who raid and murder all across the lands between the kingdoms. 

Auralia's color gift now absent, Jordam, like the other Beastmen is in trouble. He is addicted to a drink, that is quite akin to a drug. When Jordam meets Cyndere he sees a kindred spirit. Cyndere is the last of a royal line, so she is ever guarded and ever alone and hurting over her life. Will Cyndere live to see the day when the Beastmen are free of their addiction and her heart doesn't hurt anymore? And where does the Ale Boy, who so cared for Auralia fit into all of this?

I am not going to tell you because I want you to read this book! It was wonderful! 
I am happily waiting for the third book. Mr. Overstreet's writing is different and refeshing.
Cyndere's Midnight reminds of me a pebble tossed into a pond. Let's watch where all the ripples lead.

Cry In The Night by Colleen Coble

Hi Readers! 

You know the draw back of living in the "sticks"? Satellite internet. It goes out when it rains! This, this will be short and sweet before it goes back out again! 

This book had a great pace too it. I enjoyed it! I like Bree as a character, and the way the author showed how it can be when we have to make a tough "Christian" discussion to do what is Godly. A great read for a rainy day- like today has been!

Bree Nichols gets the shock of her life when her husband-presumed dead-reappears.

Bree Nichols and her search and rescue dog Samson discover a crying infant in the densely forested woods outside of Rock Harbor, Michigan. Against objections from her husband, Kade, who knows she'll become attached, Bree takes the baby in. Quickly she begins a search for the mother-presumably the woman reported missing just days earlier.
While teams scour the forests, Bree ferrets out clues about the missing woman. But she soon discovers something more shocking: Bree's former husband-long presumed dead in a plane crash-resurfaces. Is he really who he says he is? And should she trust him again after all these years?
An engaging, romantic suspense novel from critically-acclaimed author Colleen Coble.
