From Bags to Riches Sandra D. Bricker





What's the book about:
Jessie Hart worked so hard to put her Louisiana roots in the rearview mirror and her Adornments boutique on the map. So when renegade “husband” Jack turns up again, the new and improved Jessie catches his attention. As he fights through his residual legal battles, he makes every effort to win her back and marry her for real this time... before Danny gets the chance.

When a celebrity stylist with her own reality show makes Adornments a hot spot, Jessie’s hard work is finally paying off. But amid award shows and photo shoots, Jessie’s beloved grandfather is diagnosed with cancer and she’s nudged back to the Louisiana roots she worked so hard to escape. Now, in her quest to find the success, true love, and faith that has always eluded her, will God really lead her right back home?



My thoughts on the book:
Jessie is finally putting the past behind her well at least she hopes to be done with it. When Danny propose she is not sure where to go, is she suppose to be married again what if she is suppose to remain single. She also knows its time to go back to Slidell LA and see Grampy before he's gone, but will she finally make things right or will it be to late and will she loose everything close to her after Jack drops another "lie" on her or is it a "lie"? Danny knows asking Jessie to marry him will take some convincing but he also know its time to let her truly see him for who he is and how much he loves her. So off to Slidell he goes in hopes to gain some insight from the person closest to her and help get him the help with the cancer in hopes to give Jessie a little more time. But with Jack at it again he's not sure if leaving Jessie is such a good idea will he be able to help both Jessie and her grampy or will he have to move on and deal with the fall out. 

Sandie has done it again. I loved this book the whole thing tired up all three books up nicely. I loved how even with trials and tribulations through out this series Danny continues to show his loyalty and his love to Jessie. I love how Jessie has is surround with amazing friends and even in the worst parts of her life she still has some crazy ideas and still her friends choose to stand by her. In this book its stays right along the same path,there was a part in the book that I was hopeful for one more book only because I really enjoy this group of characters. It draws you in and all your left wanting to do is sit back and enjoy as your right there along with them. In this book Jack continues to throw stuff Jessie's and Danny's way with the help from both their connections they work hard in hope to stop him, it just seems as he continues to stay one stop ahead of them which adds just a little bit of suspense the story and leaves you wondering what is he going to do next. Jessie's grumpy plays a much more active roll in this book and his quirkiness is wonderful it adds the fun and simpleness to the book while still keeping you drawn in. I really enjoyed this book and these characters and am going to miss them. You really can not go wrong with this book so worth the read.

Step By Step Candace Calvert





What's the book about:
Three years after a tragic accident left her a widow, ER nurse Taylor Cabot is determined to move on, checking off one item after another on her survival list. Her relationship with a handsome plastic surgeon even gives her hope for the last point―“fall in love again.” At least until crisis chaplain Seth Donovan steps back into her life, reawakening unanswered questions about her husband’s death.

While in San Diego to train community volunteers, Seth hopes to learn why Taylor is backing away from the crisis team and from their friendship. But nothing prepares him for the feelings that arise when he sees Taylor again . . . and sees her moving on with another man.

When a community crisis hits home and puts lives at risk, emotions run high and buried truths are unearthed. Will hope make the survival list?
My thoughts on the book:
After loosing her husband Taylor decides its time for change and she knows the change needs to start with her and right away. She moves to San Diego, is closer to family and is on the right track to moving forward. She is facing some set backs and when some news about her husband is dropped in her lap she now feels like will she ever be able to move forward, because its starting to feel as those close to her may have betrayed her. Seth is sent to San Diego for training and knows he needs to find out what is really going on in Taylor's life he knows he wants to help her but he's not really sure how. There is also seems to be a point in his past that seems to be catching up with him and he's wondering what the next step will be.
    So in the first book it was very much on the edge of you seat need to know what happens very much a mystery to it, however in this book that was not the case. It was a really good book very very little mystery to it. There was something big that happened in the book and it seems to end leaving you left figuring out what happens, the book does NOT end in a cliffhanger, but it just makes you wonder why that part did not have a finish up. Over all the book was well written and well worth the read, but if you read the first book know its nothing like that its very much a love story with a little bit a mystery to it.
