When Hayden McCarthy is given a case with hardly any information, she knows she has her work cut out for her. Her boss is confident that she can win the case, but she can’t seem to get the answers she needs to move forward. As she finally starts gaining momentum, she realizes there is something more to this case than just a wrongful death, but she wants justice for her client. Andrew Wesley is Hayden’s roommate’s cousin and the son of Congressman Wesley. He works with young kids who have recently immigrated to the United States. Their paths begin to cross more frequently as a boy he’s helping ends up being one of the sons of Hayden’s client. Will Hayden be able to find justice before they all end up mixed up in something way over their heads?
This was the first book I’ve read of Cara Putman’s and I was not disappointed. It was fantastic! The characters were complex and well developed, they were very likable. From the beginning, I was sucked into the story. There were times where after reading the book, I couldn’t remember if I read it in the story or if it was a news headline. It’s full of twists and turns and keeps the reader guessing until the very end. I loved every minute of it, and can’t wait to read more of Putman’s books! If you too like suspense, you need to read this book!
I recently was able to be a part of the Never Unfriended Book Club, and I learned so much from that book (check out my review for more information on that book)! Recently the corresponding Bible Study has been released called “We Saved You A Seat.” I was able to get a free copy of the Bible Study Leadership kit as well as the Bible Study Kit (it included highlighters, stickers, and a few other things in a cute pencil pouch). I am so excited to be able to start the Online Bible Study through Lifeway that starts on August 3. If you’re interested in doing this Bible Study click here to sign up, it’s not too late!!
I did my first Facebook Live Video showing what all was included in my leadership kit and the Bible Study kit. (It’s important to note, they were two separate items since the video skips when I tried to explain it in the live video 😉 ) If you’d like to check out the video click here for a direct link or just hop on over to the Facebook page and click on the videos tab!
The first official round of cases has been assigned to the newly formed Missing Persons Task Force, and Evie Blackwell and David Marshal are put on two unrelated cases in Chicago. Evie’s case involves a missing college student, while David’s case is to find a missing Private Investigator. As they work together they discover many leads and some startling leads as well. While they search for justice for their cases, Evie’s mind is on a personal decision she needs to make and is struggling with the answers to why it’s so hard for her to come to a decision when it seems like an easy choice. Follow Evie as she searches for the answers to her case, and find out what happened in this next installment of the Evie Blackwell Cold Case series.
I was so looking forward to this next book in this series. The first book was amazing, so I was so excited to read this second book. I loved the book, but I will say I found it a bit slower and not as fast paced as I was expecting. Don’t get me wrong, it was wonderful, and I highly recommend it, I just wasn’t as caught in the suspense as I usually am with a Dee Henderson book. This was more of a steady pace, and you do keep wondering who did it, what happened to the missing Private Investigator, and what happened to Jenna Greenhill? Which description of Jenna is more accurate, the one where she’s a sweet girl who was loyal, or the one who would steal your boyfriend the second you turned your back? I love the characters in this series, and I find myself feeling like I’m right there with Evie trying to find the answers to all her questions, both personal and professional. So while it wasn’t as fast paced and suspenseful as usual, it was definitely a great book! Click here to get your copy today!

This book is an early reader and is supposed to encourage reading, as well as teach children to be kind, honest and well behaved. It is all about a little fairy who grants wishes to good little children. There are two stories in this particular book. The first story shows a little girl who lost her ring in a beautiful garden, and Fairy Ella shows her a few rings that aren’t hers to see if the little girl is honest, and if she is, she gets a wish granted. The second story follows Ella as she searches a town for a child who is being good, and if they are a good boy or girl she will grant them a wish.
This was a cute book. My kids loved the beautiful pictures. They look just like the cover, like they’re hand drawn/painted, and very pretty. They loved the stories with the little fairy. My children love books and this one was no exception. For little children who love fairy tales and make believe this is a perfect story book with beautiful pictures! It’s hard for me to judge exactly what reading level to put this on since it’s recommended as an early reader. I would say maybe late first grade or second grade. Since I’m not an expert here’s a sample sentence from the book to give you an idea for your child:
“While resting she heard something, it was a sound of laughter.”

This activity book is perfect for children of all ages. If you want it for your own children or just for activity/coloring pages for using in your Sunday School class. I was very impressed with the variety of activities in this book. I mean typically you get a book like this and it’s a lot of coloring pages with pretty much the same types of activities throughout the book, but as you can see from my pictures below, there are beautiful coloring pages, secret code activities, word searches, dot-to-dots, acrostics, and there are many, many more. According to the back of the book there are more than 200 coloring pages, and more than 150 activity pages in this book.
I know my kids are going to love doing the activities in this book. I love it because it reinforces the Bible stories I’ve been teaching them about. Another feature I was impressed with was that this book is arranged in chronological order with references to where you can find the story for each coloring page/activity page in the Bible. I highly recommend this book for parents and teachers alike, it will be an amazing resource for anybody who is teaching kids, their own or just in general. I will say that any verses that are quoted in this book are in the Christian Standard Bible version. I personally use the King James Version so I will just change those when I use them to my preferred version, but I wanted to let others know in case that’s a deciding factor for you.
