Review: I read this book as part of a judging role, my results have been turned in so I wanted to finally share my thoughts - This book had potential based on the summary, but there was just way too much going on in this book for anything to feel like it got the right amount of focus to make it satisfying.

Author: Karen Foley
Stars: 4 of 5
Review: I read this book as part of a judging role, my results have been turned in so I wanted to finally share my thoughts - Again, made me think of a holiday movie. I'l probably check out the next book in the series.

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
