I have recently read two of Karn Kingsbury's Red Glove collection. I read Gideon's Gift which was about a little girl named Gideon (I have never heard of a girl named Gideon before) who has cancer and what she does for a homeless man at Christmas times. The second book I read was Maggie's Miracle which is about a woman named Megan who has given up on love and a man name Casey who is still getting over his wife's death. These stories are quick little books that are perfect for this time of year as they are set during the Christmas time. I kinda knew what was going to happen in both of the books but it was enjoyable to read them. I came away feeling goos which is what I wanted out of them.
Piercing the Darkness by Frank Peretti audiobook. I listened to an abridged version of this and I really do prefer the unabrideged version. I guess the abridged version wouldn't be bad if you didn't already know the story but as this is a book that I have read several times I could tell that parts were missing. It is a good story none the less. It is the continuation of the book This Present Darkness. In this story the forces of good and evil are at it again but over a small Christian School. This edition was read by Frank Perretti the author. I recommend this series if you like suspense but read or listen to the unabridged versions.
Cooking Up Murder by Miranda Bliss e-reader. I read this on my ereader at work before I went to bed. It was okay but not sure if I will continue with the series. A recently divorced women and her friend sign up to take a cooking class only to have someone die in the parking lot after class one night. Was it a heart attack or murder? And if it was murder who would want the man dead? It did keep me guessing but really I didn't come to carre for any of the characters that much so by the end of the book I really didn't care.
The Murder of King Tut by James Patterson and Martin Dugard audio. I really enjoyed this book as it was written like a novel but packed alot of history into the story. It went back and forth between when Tut was alive and when he was discovered.
