Montana Wildfire by Rebecca Sinclair ~ After her father’s sudden death, lovely Amanda Lennox had no money for the long trip from Boston to the ranch she’d inherited in faraway Seattle. When she saw the advertisement for a “wilderness expert” to escort eleven-year-old Roger Bannister, III to Montana, the adventure-loving woman jumped at the chance, never guessing she’d end up lost in the wilds of Idaho… with a twisted ankle...
Montana Wildfire by Rebecca Sinclair ~~ ONLY 99¢! ~~~ (On sale, for a limited time.) — "Great scenes, good descriptions, fun characters all make for an entertaining read." — Sudi A.

The Eight by Katherine Neville. Tense thriller like The Da Vinci Code.
The Eight by Katherine Neville. Computer expert Cat Velis is heading for a job to Algeria. Before she goes, a mysterious fortune teller warns her of danger, and an antique dealer asks her to search for pieces to a valuable chess set that has been missing for years. In the South of France in 1790, two convent girls hide valuable pieces of a chess set all over the world, because the game that can be played with them is too powerful.
The Eight by Katherine Neville. My favorite book
The Eight by Katherine Neville. Pinner writes: "Part suspense, part romance, part fairy tale, part historical fiction. Falls into the category of books that I call intellectual thrillers. Neville interweaves interesting puzzles with a great narrative."
The Eight: A Novel ~ Katerine Neville. June 2014 Book Club Book
Brilliant novel about power through the ages through the metaphor of a historic chess set.

Worth Reading, Book Worth, Jane Eyre, Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte, Classic Novels, Favorite Book, High Schools
Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte, is one of my favorite books; deliciously dark.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. "My greatest thought in living is Heathcliff. If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be... Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure... but as my own being." Wuthering Heights is the only novel of Emily Bronte, who died a year after its publication.
Wuthering Heights - Books worth Reading.
Wuthering Heights, one of my favorite classic novels of all time, even though it can get depressing.
Although a teacher made me read Jane Eyre in high school English, it was Wuthering Heights by another Bronte sister that I read of my own free will, and more than once.
Loved this one, although I never did get the chance to read the 2nd installment. Yet! ~ℛ

If you buy as a shower gift for a funny friend, don't be surprised if it's read in it's entirety between laughter and hilarious tears! The book is hardcover and has 18 pages of absolutel

The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo — Great kick-off to the "Millenium Trilogy" by Steig Larsson. The series was planned for 8, or possibly 10) books. At his death in Nov. of '94, he left approx ¾ of a 4th book on his computer, which is owned by his partner. She is in a well-publicized hot dispute with Larsson's family as to who has legal rights to his books. (Sad fact: Larsson died at the age of 50 without ever seeing the international success his work became.) ~ℛ
