Confessions of a Shopaholic (Shopaholic #1) by Sophie Kinsella  
Easy read. Relatable while thinking no one can be that dumb.

Shopaholic Takes Manhattan (Shopaholic #2) by Sophie Kinsella 
Easy read. Relatable.

Shopaholic Ties the Knot (Shopaholic #3) by Sophie Kinsella 
Gives you a glimpse of the ultimate dream wedding with what every bride wants. Jumps around, doesn’t flow well.

Shopaholic & Sister (Shopaholic #4) by Sophie Kinsella – 
Can two sisters be more opposite?

Shopaholic & Baby (Shopaholic #5) by Sophie Kinsella 
The book should be pregnancy, not baby, since the baby isn’t born.

Shopaholic to the Stars (Shopaholic #7) by Sophie Kinsella 
The book doesn’t have a clean ending. There is no big shopping or crisis. Very choppy.

The Mystic Path to Cosmic Power by Vernon Howard
Truly uplifting with simple, yet insightful ways to open my eyes and see I have what I need to be fulfilled.

France 2015 by Fodor’s Travel 

Good information for travel to France. It includes maps of transit and info on all regions of France. 

Rand McNally Cosmopolitan World Atlas by AOM/Growmark 
Excellent aerial and other photos. Full of world information and details from 1987. 

To Buy or Not to Buy Organic by Cindy Burke 

Experienced food writer with good insight and opened my eyes to the “dirty dozen” of foods to buy organic.

How to Work With Just About Anyone by Lucy Gill

Excellent strategies to tolerate – and even get a troublesome co-worker or boss thinking and off your back!
 
I keep referring back to book – it is very powerful, mind opening, eloquently written book! Highly suggest to anyone!

Submerged (Alaskan Courage #1) by Dani Pettrey     
The writing didn’t flow as well with this one. It was my least favorite of the series, but could be because of diving and caves. Not a lover of underwater stories.

Shattered (Alaskan Courage #2) by Dani Pettrey     
Enjoyed this sister in the series. Kept me wanting to read longer than I should have. Her faith in her brother took courage. Well written.

Stranded (Alaskan Courage #3) by Dani Pettrey     
Very well written. Kept me guessing. The ending was a bit rushed, but was OK.

Silenced (Alaskan Courage #4) by Dani Pettrey     
Good book – kept me guessing who was behind the crime.

Sabotaged (Alaskan Courage #5) by Dani Pettrey     
Best written of the series. She kept me guessing who the mastermind behind it. Liked the other family members were included in the story.

False Pretenses (Secrets of Roux River Bayou #1) by Kathy Herman
One of my favorite authors. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. #3 of the series. [It's actually the first book of the series] If you like Christian suspense – a great author to read.
