"Making It Home" by Emily T. Wierenga
"Making It Home" by Emily T. Wierenga is a book about the authors different stages in her life. I don't know why I chose this book to review I did not like one of her other books but I probable thought maybe I would like this one but I didn't at all. I had a hard time getting into this book. Plus some of her theology just did not seem good not sure how to expand on it but just seemed off. Also the way the author wrote the book I just felt if I knew her in real life I would probable avoid her as she seemed like the type that gets offended very easily. Seriously I am having a hard time just writing a non positive review of this book cause I feel if she reads it she might get offended and play this person is mean thing cause they didn't like my book. It was all over the place in the writing but I will say that it was an quick and easy read once I could get into it. I have no recommendation for this book.
I was given this book from BakerBooks a division of Baker Publishing Group for my honest review and was not required to give a positive review.
"What is Reformed Theology?" by R.C. Sproul is about understanding the basics of reformed theology. Even though this book says it is about understanding the basics but it is really in depth not a milk type book at all. This was very meaty book with quotes and history from past reformers also with a lot of scripture. My favorite section was on understanding faith alone. Not only does it explain reformed theology but it also it breaks down and explains the acronym TULIP. Well wrote book that makes some hard things in theology easier to understand.

"The Ebb Tide" by Beverly Lewis is about Sallie Riehl who as a young Amish woman has heart to travel well when her big plans change she becomes a nanny for a non-Amish family for the summer away from her home. This was not your stereotypical Amish story yes it did have the normal romance but the story was more about Sallie discovering what she believes and wants in life. This was a sweet story with some of the typical things you see in Amish fiction but not everything. One thing that was nice to read was that we did not have the typical someone was being shunned this book had more of a family supportive attitude than the shunning attitude of some. I really liked the story of Sallie finding how she fits in this world and not just going with the flow. I highly recommend this book it is one of Beverly Lewis's best books.

"Fixing Perfect" by Therese M. Travis is a murder mystery about psychopath killer who is obsessed with disabled artist Robin Ingram. This was a tough book to read if you are not interested to read about kidnappings of kids and murder of an adult close to them. This was a very good murder mystery novel with just the right amount of detail so that it was not too graphic. Now I will admit the one point in the book that kinda of annoyed me was how easy it was for me to figure out the bad guy. I can't write about how I know who it was as if I do it will be way to obvious if you decide to read the book. I really enjoyed how the author dealt with false accusations. This was really good book with some really great characters. I would love to see more of the main characters in this book. If you can't tell I highly recommend it.
