Taryn Young is at the top of her game. She has just created some exciting new software for her company and had a wonderful whirlwind romance. Now she and her new husband (Step) are ready to take off for their honeymoon. But, when the unthinkable happens, will she be able to prove her innocence?
Taryn was so excited to leave on her honeymoon; to share some quiet time with her new husband. But, before they boarded their plane, a bomb went off, destroying most everything in its path. Taryn sustained some injuries but was well enough to look for her husband. Step is missing! Of course, everyone in the terminal is questioned by the FBI. Taryn finds that she and her husband are prime suspects! She can't believe that they think she did something wrong and that they can't find her husband. As she continues to beg Agent Grayson Hall to believe her, he finds that something in her story rings true to him. Was her husband the mastermind looking for a cover, making Taryn an innocent bystander? Does the software Taryn created have anything to do with the bombing? Who blew up the terminal? Is Taryn in danger?
What a great read! I was interested in the story from beginning to end. Diann Mills writes in such a way that her readers feel connected to the story and characters. I also liked that it is something that was realistically handled with thought and research. If you enjoy intrigue and suspense, you will enjoy this book. I received my review copy from Tyndale Books in exchange for an honest review.

The Bible is an important book for all ages, but there are some things that pertain specifically to teens. This Bible is designed to help teens read and study the Bible with effectiveness and understanding. Throughout the Bible, teens will find extras like: Questions, Answers, Bonus Questions, Panorama, Instant Access, To the Point, and Dear Jordan questions. Each of these is meant to bring Scripture to life and make it pertinent to a teenager's life. From the "Apostles Creed" through the Bible and ending with beautiful maps, teenagers will discover the message God has for them.
I enjoyed looking through this Bible and seeing the wonderful "extras" that are included. It is not the version I normally read, but I found wonderful thougts and help for the teenagers I know. It is easy to see the study, thought, and prayer that went into creating the teen study sections. If you enjoy this version of the Bible and have a teen, this is definitely for you. If not, it is still worth a look to see what God may have to say to you. I received my review copy from the Book Look program in exchange for an honest review.
Have you wanted to learn to sew, either with a machine or without? Did you sew in the past and need a refresher? Or, do you sew well but want to learn some new stitches? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this book is for you.
There are three main sections in this book: 1) Machine Stitches 2) Hand Stitches and 3) Tools and Equipment. Machine stitching details 50 different stitches, from buttonholes to "Walls of Troy" stitches to other Decorative Stitches. The directions and illustrations show the process step by step so there is no question about how to proceed. There are also "Essential Facts" that provide more necessary information (like thread and needle type). The Hand Stitching section is set up the same way and details 18 stitches like the "French Tack" and "Overcast Stitch." The section on Tools and Equipment discusses types of needles, threads, and machines.
I really like this book. While I do a lot of hand stitching, I haven't used a machine in a long while. This book gave me a refresher and helped me select the proper stitches for my project. This book is a great reference book for anyone and would make a great gift for a young man who will be living on his own. Virtually anyone can benefit from something in this book.
