Title
Church of Lies
Author
Flora Jessop
Review
This is a memoir of a woman who leaves the FLDS church. It brings to light the physical, emotional, and sexual abuse that is rampant in the FLDS community. She explains how the beliefs of the church provide a conducive environment for abuse.

Flora Jessop also explains how she gets out of the situation and dedicates her life to helping others leave the church and learn to make decisions for themselves.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in reading a true story of how one woman found freedom and is fighting for others.

Review
This book combines the "chick lit" and "sports" fiction genres and is an intriguing study of what happens when three friends, who happen to form a love triangle, are also competing against each other for places in the 2012 London Olympics. The narrative is both heart pounding and tender, especially when the chronically ill daughter of two of the characters is involved.

Framed in Lace

Review
Another book in the series that includes needlework patterns at the end of each book. I'm glad I went in order as they tell the backstory of all that happened. Again, I was surprised that I wasn't able to figure out the mystery. A quick, mindless read that doesn't make you think too hard!

A fun read, you don't necessarily need to be familiar with needlework to read it. I usually am able to figure out straight away who the "bad guy" is and I was totally taken off guard. This is the first book in the series.

Never Less Than a Lady
Author
Mary Jo Putney
Review
Not really a fan of "Romance Novels", but I thought this sounded interesting when I first saw it. It's an unusual love story set in the early 1800's. A little too predictable for me, but it did keep my interest. This is the type of book to read on a lazy day with a glass of wine. Just so you are aware, there are some explicit bedroom scenes.
