My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the 3rd book in the Thrill of the Chase series. This is a Contemporary Romance novel and is 418 pages in length. I must admit, I do love rock star romance novels. To read this series, you might as well grab a drink, prop your feet up, and get ready for the long haul because this will have your emotions reeling. The characters were well thought out and relatable. All Jared wanted to do was a keep a promise to his dad. Then he met her, and his life changed.

Mom, Is There a Santa Claus? by Susan J Berger Illustrator: KC Snider – Review by Heidi Schoolman

Mom, Is There a Santa Claus?Mom, Is There a Santa Claus? by Susan J. Berger
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a Children’s book and is 26 pages in length. My boys are 7 and 10 and still believe. My 7-year-old, however, has started asking questions because he has been hearing things at school. I read this to them. I know I for one am not looking forward to the day they find out. I love how the author found a child’s way to keep the belief alive and the illustrations were wonderful! This is one of those books that should be handed down for generations to come.
