Deric Longden is the perfect book for the cat lover as the author describes
daily life with his cats.
Deric Longden is remarkably perceptive in his
observations. The traits that he sees in his cats, I see in mine. This book was

The Day We Meet Again by Miranda Dickinson is a beautiful
contemporary love story that will enchant from the start.
Do you believe in love at first sight? A love
that blossoms and takes over your whole life is a beautiful sight to see. “It

ability to weave her words, the reader ‘feels’ enveloped in an atmosphere of

Pray And Trust God
Wait For Me by Jan Thompson is a contemporary
Christian romantic suspense. It is the third book in the Vacation Sweethearts
series but can be read as a stand-alone.
Jan Thompson has created a cracking story that
entertains the reader. She reveals the heart of God to love us and to be in
control of all our situations. “Did
we forget that God is ultimately in control of our lives?” When our world is in
turmoil we need to remember that nothing surprises God. He knows our ending
from our beginning.
Prayer is important. It should be as natural as
breathing. “Praying was an automatic thing.” We need to make prayer our default
setting and not our last resort.
God is the God of second chances. Whatever we
threw away in the past can be resurrected under the loving care of God.
