Darcy and Clare grew up as best friends, sharing trials and triumphs from preschool through college graduation. Now they’re sharing an apartment in Boise, Idaho, where Clare just landed a great job and Darcy is pursuing a teaching certificate. There’s only one problem: Blaine, Clare’s boyfriend. His chauvinistic, know-it-all ways set Darcy’s teeth on edge. Darcy vows not to let Blaine ruin her lifelong friendship with Clare, but when Blaine insists on moving in, Darcy suddenly finds herself alone.
The estranged friends forge ahead on seemingly separate paths. Engaged to Blaine, Clare becomes trapped in ugly family politics and vicious treatment from her fiancé. Darcy finds a temporary home with Karlene, an accident victim seeking live-in help, but a twisted plot soon threatens their safety. Clare’s wedding briefly reunites her with Darcy, yet the friends have never been farther apart. And when Clare finds herself in mortal peril and finally calls on Darcy to help, it might be too late. This book is one of the best suspense novels I've read in a long time. Not only is there the suspence a who is trying to kill Karlene and why, there is the abuse that Clare is suffering at the hands of Blaine. And will Darcy be able to save either Karlene or Clare before its too late. I had a hard time putting this book down, until I was finished. Jennie Hansen showed once again how talented and versatile she is. I would highly recommend this book to anyone, especially if you are into suspence. You can find this book at Deseret Book, Seagull Book, Amazon.com, and inter library loan. For more information on Jennie Hansen's books CLICK HERE To visit Jennie Hansen's blog CLICK HERE

Paul Mardian is a shining example of the American dream. The grandson of an Armenian immigrant who fled to the United States during the genocide of 1915, Paul is a self- made industrial tycoon and one of the most eligible bachelors in the country. But the dream is shattered when Paul turns up dead and his valuable collection of ancient Armenian artificats goes missing. Hired to find the murdered man’s heirs, professional genealogist Alexandra Campbell and her sidekick, Briggie, are brought to the swanky beaches of Southern California and a community of Armenian relatives who all seem to be hiding a secret. When another family member is suddenly murdered, Alex discovers there is more at stake than an unclaimed fortune or missing antiques, but piecing together Paul’s complicated family tree may be more dangerous than she ever anticipated. Author G. G. Vandagriff combines mystery, suspense, and romance in this page- turning thriller!
This is the 5th (And final) Alex & Briggie genealogy mystery. As they always do, Alex & Briggie get into all sorts of trouble, which only makes the story better. The story starts with Alex, Briggie, Charles,Richard & Marigny flying off to Huntington Beach, CA to find Paul Mardian's heirs. That seams innocent enough until Benji, the favorite grandson is kidnapped, and Alex is shot. The list of suspects is long, and I never suspected the real culprit. Alex & Briggie's adventures are always great fun, I will miss their adventures. The previous Alex & Briggie Mysteries are Cankered Roots, Of Deadly Descent, Tangled Roots & Poisoned Pedigree. You can read them in any order. If you like genealogy and mystery this is the book for you. You can get it at the usual places, Deseret book, Seagull book, Amazon, and inter library loan.
Welcome to Mary's Book Corner. I read a lot and like to share my opinions about the books I read. The opinions on this blog are my own, not everyone will share my taste in books or agree with my opinion. You are welcome to post opposing opinions, but keep it friendly and civil. Writing a review always reminds me of the much hated Book Reports I had to do in grade school, so my reviews are usually short . I hope someday I will get past that, until then it is what it is.
Welcome to my blog. The thoughts and opinions here are strictly my own. My parents signed me up for my 1st book club before I was born. I have always loved books and reading. The 1st LDS Fiction I read was Added Upon by Nephi Anderson when I was 10. At the time it was the very best LDS Fiction had to offer. It has greatly improved over the past few years. I read as much as I can in my spare time. I grew up in Massachusetts, went to High School at Algonquin Regional High School, and college at Utah State University. I have lived in Michigan, Massachusetts & Utah. I currently live in Phoenix, AZ where I work full time as a Patient Care Advocate, My other activities include crocheting, I especially like Amigurumi Animals.
Family History is another passion I wish I had more time to work on it.
I welcome commets, as long as they are tasteful and respectful, all others will be deleted.
In 1967 and again in 1977 President Spencer W. Kimball challenged the members of the Church to produce works of art that would do justice to the drama and beauty inherent in the history of the Church and its mission in the world. “We are proud of the artistic heritage that the Church has brought to us from its earliest beginnings,” he said, “but the full story of Mormonism has never yet been written nor painted nor sculpted nor spoken. It remains for inspired hearts and talented fingers yet to reveal themselves.” (See Ensign, July 1977, p. 5.)
No doubt, we will yet have Miltons and Shakespeares of our own. But such literary greatness will be achieved only by great souls. Our religion is capable of cultivating those great souls; and it shall.
