Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

Two babies in jeopardy…two powerful stories in one! 
When an unhinged cult leader escapes custody, he'll stop at nothing to get to two innocent babies…and the foster mothers who stand in his way. 

GUARDING EVE by Beth Cornelison 

Lila Green goes from foster mom to bodyguard when a storm traps her and six-month-old Eve in a remote mountain cabin with a killer on their heels. Can her neighbor, wounded veteran Dean Hamilton, help them survive? 

CLAIMING CALEB by Karen Whiddon 

Michelle Morgan must protect her newborn nephew, Caleb—and even work with her ex-fiancé. FBI agent Garrett Ware never wanted children, but now he'll sacrifice everything for this baby…and this woman. 

These stories had two things that ordinarily mark a story as a sure winner for me-babies and a second chance at romance. Throw in suspense and bam! I'm loving it. But for some reason neither clicked for me. Possibly because both stories are less than 150 pages each, there wasn't time to give you much of a back story on the "cult's" activities though you did get some on the failed earlier romances of both couples. 
I especially found Lila less than sympathetic. She dwelled too much on Dean not telling her exactly what was going on and less with getting her butt in gear and getting the hell out of Dodge when she overheard that the killer was after the baby. Seriously! time for hurt feelings later! Move it woman!  I really just wanted to slap her.
Again, because of the brevity of the stories there really wasn't a lot of build up of suspense. You already knew (and so did they) who was after them so the suspense was a bit flat. Though having read numerous books by both authors, I'll definitely pick up more of their works.
