My favorite book of Jodi's I've read so far

This was a riveting book--hard to put down. It made for great discussion at our book club get-together.

Didn't enjoy this book as much as we thought

This book was really hard to read--so disjointed--it didn't flow like a good book. There were some humorous stories and we appreciated the author's honesty, but it wasn't a book we would recommend to anyone else, except maybe a Pastor.

Entertaining read

This book was a good read and made for a fun discussion at our book club.

Finding Noel: A Novel by Richard Paul Evans
good Christmas read

I really enjoyed the book and the characters.

The book was ok--just too much afterlife and superstitions for my taste

Our book club really enjoyed Lisa See's first book Snow Flower and the Secret Fan so we were really looking forward to reading Peony in Love. I found it disappointing as so much of the book dealt in the afterlife.

Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas

A good mystery--an enjoyable read

Really liked the characters and the storyline in this book. Felt sorry for the Japanese and what we put them through during this time.

Our least favorite of Lorna's books so far

This book was a real disappointment. I felt like Lorna let down her readers in a big way. This book could have been alot better without the shock value sex and language she used.

The Quilter's Apprentice

I enjoyed this book. It had alot more quilting information than I needed to know, but it did make me want to learn how to quilt. The storyline was good and had some surprises.

This was a very well written and well researched book about a subject that we don't often think about if we don't have anybody in the armed forces. We really enjoyed the book--it was just so sad.
