I am so thankful that Jesus loved me so much that He would die on the cross for me.  When I read the Old Testament and read of all the requirements that the children of Israel had to go through to be in right standing with God, I realize just how awesome Calvary was.  No longer do we have to perform all the blood sacrifices to have our sins removed.  Now we can go directly to the Lord and tell Him anything and everything.

I was so fortunate that I had great parents.  Both my Daddy and Mother were people that I knew loved me no matter what.  I was a Daddy's girl and I knew that there was nothing that I could do that would cause him to turn his back on me.  As I have grown into an adult, I know that because I had a Daddy like mine, it was easy to turn to my Heavenly Father.  I knew  there were rules that were to be followed and I also knew that there would be consequences to not following the rules.  Just like there are consequences to not following the Word of God.  I am so glad that that Jesus loves me with all my short comings and He will never turn me away.

Last night, I was thinking about Easter when I was young and how we would always get a new outfit, Easter basket, full of goodies and then after church we would come home and we would have a family dinner.  My Grandmother would always make her famous peach or cherry cobbler.  My mother would also make her famous deviled eggs.  What a fun time it would be.  My Daddy would hide the eggs again that we had gotten and candy eggs that my Mother would have bought.

My Mother and Daddy

My Daddy, my self and my little sister, Tammy

My self with a new dress that had a full cancan( for those that don't know, this a slip that has a lot of layers that helps the dress be full), my gloves(all Southern girls needed) and of course our pocketbook(purse).

My wonderful, lovely Mother

This was another Easter, My littlest sister, Karen, Mother and Daddy, myself and on the left side that got chopped would have been my brother, Steve and sister, Tammy.
I remember the fun time that we would have decorating the real eggs.  And the mess that would follow.  Yet, my mother would just let us have fun and worry about the clean-up later.  Growing up in my family was wonderful.  I had an older brother, and two sisters to have fun with.  So when I was thinking back on the past holidays, I knew that I had to find some pictures.


From Back Cover:


I seem to be gathering quite a collection of murder victims: first my husband, then my contractor.  And now my ex-husband's fiancee has turned up dead.  But I, Grace Lee Harris, am on the job - much to the dismay of my boyfriend, homicide detective Ray Fernandez.  I've enlisted the ladies of the Christian Friends to help me figure out who killed my ex's sweetie not long before their wedding.  My ex is the prime suspect, but his fiancee kept secrets that might have been deadly.  I just pray that her secrets don't get me killed!

My comments:

What a trip!  Not only does Grace  have her own live to take care of, but now her ex is depending on her to clear his name.  Will Grace be able to satisfy all the men in her life at this moment, or will she find herself the object of everyone's attention?  What secrets were her ex's fiancee been hiding, that would have caused someone to kill her?  

This book was a fun read.  It was easy to picture someone in this position in real life.  I could relate to Grace, when she was trying to keep the communication open between her son and his father.  Lynn Bulock, the author, takes the reader on journey of a woman that is trying to keep her own life separate, yet at the same time help those that she loves.

I give this book a 4.5 rating.


From back Cover:


The Witness Protection Program was supposed to keep Jade Summer's sister safe.  So why is U.S. Marshall Micah McGraw saying her twin is dead?  Jade doesn't get the chance to ask because their meeting is interrupted  Ruby's killers.  The mob is after Jade...but neither Micah nor Jade know why.  Somehow, its connected to a decades old crime.  Finding the truth could be disastrous, but lives depend on it.  Several women are in danger...and Jade is the first one in the killer's sights.

My comments:

I love watching "In Plain Sight" on television, so when I found this book, I knew that I wanted to read it.
Once, I opened the book to the first page, I was hooked.  It is so refreshing to read a clean mystery, that is full of promise.  Marta Perry takes the reader into the lives of people that have had to give up their own choices and live a life just to be safe.  I am looking forward to reading the other books in the "Protecting the Witnesses" series.

I give this book a 4.5 star rating.
