Published: October 2, 2007

Christmas is coming, and Olivia is incredibly busy. She has to wait for Santa, make sure dad sets up the tree, wait for Santa, watch mom make the Christmas dinner, wait for Santa, oversee the care with which the stockings are hung and, of course, OPEN HER PRESENTS! Do you see how hard it is to be so helpful during the holidays? A lovingly-told and lavishly-illustrated Olivia Helps With Christmas is the perfect stuffing for any stocking, and a bright star atop the Olivia series.

Five-star-feedback-on-oDesk

Olivia is such a cute character and very inventive.  She tells her Mom that she will set the table for Christmas Dinner and when her Mother sees it her mouth falls open because for the centerpiece Olivia has cut off the tip-top part of the family Christmas tree and used it. That is just one of the cute things Olivia does in this book.

I’ll be sending this to me niece, Kate, next month to add to her ever-growing Olivia collection.

Fantastic  read!

Captivated by You (Crossfire #4) by Sylvia Day

Book Description:

Published: April 1, 2014

Gideon calls me his angel, but he’s the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own.

The vows we’d exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn’t sure I was strong enough to bear.

At the brightest time in our lives, the darkness of his past encroached and threatened everything we’d worked so hard for. We faced a terrible choice: the familiar safety of the lives we’d had before each other or the fight for a future that suddenly seemed an impossible and hopeless dream…

Review –
I was really disappointed with this installment of the Crossfire series because I thought that once Gideon and Eva were married things would settle down a bit-but instead everything in their lives seems to be causing more friction between them than ever before.
I didn’t know that there was a fifth book in the mix so I was quite upset (to say the least) when this book ended leaving a multitude of questions unanswered.
I have faith in the author that in the next book she will let them have their HEA and that things will also work out for Cary and Trey.
Can’t wait til the next book is released.
