The-Watch-Large-Front.jpg

The Watch on the Fencepost, by Kay DiBianca, is a story of Kate Frasier, who lost her parents in a questionable car accident. After the accident, Kate is introduced to people from her mother’s past. One of whom is the owner of the watch Kate found on a fence post and they quickly become friends.

Kate’s father use to leave her little clues to follow to find things he has for her. With her birthday approaching, her father had planned well in advance the clues he has left for her. Together with her new friend, she searches for subsequent clues to find what he has left her.

This is good easy to read mystery of the who done it type with a touch of romance written in. The story is very well written with not a lot of characters to keep straight. It is a good clean story with good lessons. Some of the things I enjoyed about this story, other than the mystery, is the friendships that develop. Kate and her mechanic both had negative feelings about each other, but with a little help from comments her father made in the past, they are able to see they were mistaken about each other. The mechanic felt Kay felt going to the shop was beneath her, which actually Kay was just shy. This points out that sometimes we are too quick to make judgment without know all the facts.

Chosen People by Robert Whitlow

_225_350_Book.2674.cover

Chosen People, by Robert Whitlow, is an outstanding modern day legal thriller. This is a very suspenseful legal drama that covers Atlanta and Israel. Lawyers Hana and Jakob work together to track down who was behind the terrorist attacks that killed Gloria Neuman. Hana is able to renew a friendship with investigator Daud. Even while being surrounded with danger, Hana and Daud develop a relationship. And with the attack on Jakob, that left him unable to drive, he become friends with a very aggressive driver.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I like how the author has written an outstanding story and blends in the Christian teachings as well. The story is very fast paced, with a lot of drama and action. The author has written in detail to help the reader visualize being there. I also liked the background information the author gives of the Jewish and Christian beliefs of the Arab Israeli and their country.

James and Lee: The Great Scare by Gregory James

James-and-Lee-Large-Front

James and Lee, the Great Scare by Gregory James is truly an amazing story. The story takes place 200 hundred years after the destruction of the earth’s surface. People are now living under the surface of the earth in tunnels. James and Lee are brothers who are working on a time machine to take them back in time. They are also the town’s librarians and are the ones people go to when they have problems. The latest string of problems is that several people have had things go missing at 6 PM the same night. James and Lee are called upon to try to find the missing items and people.

This book is an action filled satire. There are so many things I enjoyed about this book. I found myself laughing while reading. One of the things that stands out for me in this book is that those who were trying to save the earth, as we know it today, are the ones that caused the destruction. Another is the things that go missing are the things the people treasured the most. I really enjoyed the part where the author writes about the destruction of the earth’s surface. He goes through the different steps that are taken to use vehicles and pollute the earth the least. At one point hamsters are used to run the cars, until it is discovered the hamsters pollute the earth.

I just loved this book and I feel a lot of others will also enjoy it. With just 186 pages, it is a great book to read to just get lost for an evening.
