Get your kids reading this summer

I love when books for kids combine history or an important lesson with a fun story. Imagination Station books never disappoint.

Patrick and Beth land on a ship during the Revolutionary War. They quickly learn that life on a ship in no easy job. When their ship is captured they learn how prisoners of war are not always treated fairly and help plan a daring escape. Will it work? 

Valuable lessons are learned through this book. And my children loved this book. Both of my middle children like Imagination Station books and were excited to see this one come in the mail. I think that this is one for every household and every age.

"Death Takes A Ride" {a review}

You know by now that I love mysteries and I love to find new authors. "Death Takes a Ride" is definitely a fun new mystery to read.

Cate Kinkaid is a private eye who tends to have trouble find her. When she goes to pick up a friend and witnesses a murder she falls deeper into a case than she feels comfortable with. When the killer gets too close for comfort, Cate learns what she is really made of.

I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to picking up more from the series. I actually started reading this the day before I started my new job so it took me longer to read than normal. But it was definitely not the book- it was all me and adjusting to the new job.
