So many many many new and good books have arrived here at the store. I do not have time to read them all. *Heavy Sigh* I want to say I will read the eventually, but I also now that is also not true. *heavier sigh* But I will give it the old college true and there are quite a few on this list that I really want to read. So maybe you can read some of them and I will read some of them and we can exchange stories.
Are you Going to Kiss Me or Not - Thompson Square and Travis Thrasher - Inspired by the original hit song by Thompson Square - Daniel and Casey used to write music together, but as life came along they felt their relationship wasn't what they wanted. Years later they meet up again and find out that they are exactly what they really needed.

It has been a bit of a cool and wet spring here. So different from last year. For some reason that changes what I like to be reading at that time. I find myself wanting to read books about warmer weather and almost nothing that is set during the winter months.
Pretty is as Pretty Does - Debby Mayne - #1 Class Reunion Series - Priscilla heads off to her 10 year reunion with a mixture of emotions. She knows she has a lot going for her now that she didn't in high school, but will any of that matter to her fellow classmates?
King - R.J. Larson -#3 inBooks of the Infinite - Much awaited conclusion to the series. If you are not reading this series, you should be. Return to the story of Ela, Kien and the Destroyers.

When I was first presented with Chasing Francis by Ian Morgan Cron I was a bit leery of it, as a fiction reader/buyer I worry about a book that has an agenda. This book obviously has one and it is not hard to find. Ian is an “emergent church” guy and that comes through very clearly. I like some of what he had to say and some of it got a bit old. Intermixed with his “preaching” there is a really good story, one I appreciated and found myself wishing for more.

It is hard to believe that I was typing June 1st in the header. Once again this year seems to be sailing right along. People tell me it is because as you get older there is more time behind you that ahead so it just seems like it is moving faster. Well I am NOT that old, and I also know people younger than I that say the same thing, so that can't be it...
I think it is because there are so many great books out there. Enjoy this list.
Fear Has a Name - Creston Mapes - Jack needs to figure out who is targeting his wife and daughters, but to do so will sink him deeper and deeper in the dark side of faith. Where not only are his family and himself in danger, but so is his faith.
The Gift of Legacy - Jim Stovall - Joey's Great Grandmother leaves him a bed and breakfast, but the only way he can inherit is if he lives there and plays by her rules. Will he be able to meet the challenge? Does he want to?
The Promise Box - Tricia Goyer - #2 Seven Brides for Seven Brothers - Lydia is drawn back to her Amish roots after her father's death. She finds comfort in a Prayer box she finds, but will her painful childhood and betrayal of the Amish community keep her from the man she has fallen in love with?
Blowing on Dandelions - Maralee Ferrell - Love Blossoms in Oregon - Katherine is just trying to survive, after her husband's death. She is trying to run a boarding house, raise two daughters and put up with her domineering mother. Throwing a man into the mix just doesn't seem like a good idea at this time.
Pennsylvania Patchwork - Kate Lloyd - #2 Legacy of Lancaster - Holly meets her Amish family that her mother kept secret. She loves it and is ready to change her life when she falls for the local Mennonite veterinarian. But stir in a couple more suitors and this get murky.

Pieces of the Heart - Bonnie Calhoun - Quilts of Love novel - Cordelia waits for Bernard to return from WWII, while she waits she makes a quilt for their marriage bed. But the Bernard that returns is not the same as the man who left. Will love and faith overcome all?
