Walking on Air by Catherine Anderson

Gabriel Valance is a gunslinger. He gets killed on Christmas but when he wakes he is in a shack with two men arguing over him.  He finds out that they are the angels Gabriel and Michael. They have decided to give him a second chance if he will save one of three souls in Random, Co. They give him a month to get this done before he dies again.  Gabe decides on Nan Hoffman who happens to think that she murdered a man that tried to rape her eight years ago. Gabriel gets her to marry him by blackmailing her. As the days count down, Gabe falls in love with Nan and the town of Random.  He always wanted a family and a rewarding life but never had a chance to settle down because some man was always trying to be the one to gun him down.

I liked this book. It did not overwhelm you with the Christian message. It was a sweet story how Gabe made the family he always yearned for.

From the author:
Random, Colorado, is just another stop on the road for solitary gunslinger Gabriel Valance. Known for his drinking, gambling, and womanizing, he prefers to remain a stranger to anyone who crosses his path. But when an upstart gunslinger catches Gabe off guard and shoots him down, he regrets his empty, lonely life with his dying breath....
Golden-haired beauty Nancy Hoffman settled in Random after fleeing an abusive past. Caring for her younger sister and working in a hat shop help her to forge ahead, though she remains fearful and mistrustful of men—and marriage....
Their paths will cross when Gabe gets a second chance at life and a divine mission: to sweep Nancy off her feet, gain her trust, and convince her to believe in his love. And in doing so, the once-hardened cowboy may save himself....

Wish You Were Here by Stewart O'Nan

I read this book to fulfill the last category in a challenge. I was bored.  I kept waiting for something to happen. But nothing did! The story follows a family taking a week's vacation at their vacation home which is about to be sold because the father died the year before. The mother, Emily was kind of a nasty, judgy person. Her two children, Kenneth and Margaret, were whiny, spineless people. Their children were strange! Awful!

From goodreads:
One year after the lingering death of family patriarch Henry Maxwell, his autocratic widow, Emily, invites her scattered family to spend a last vacation together at their Lake Chautauqua summer home, which she unilaterally has decided to sell after decades of ownership by the family. In August, three generations converge at the house, among them Henry's spinster sister, Arlene, a retired schoolteacher; Meg, the oldest daughter, whose "train wreck of a life" has encompassed alcoholism, financial disaster, and a recent divorce; and Ken, the distant, reserved younger child whose struggle to succeed as a freelance photographer has placed an added strain on his already complicated home life. Accompanying them are Ken's lonely, introspective wife, Lisa, and an assortment of children -- both Ken's and Meg's -- with issues and problems of their own.

      Death of a Bore by MC Beaton

      Hamish finally gets time to meet the new man in town, writer John Heppel. Hamish does not like him.  He is a giant blowhard! He thinks he is better than what he truly is. He wrote some nasty grafitti on Mr. Patel's store only to get himself on TV.  Heppel runs a writer's class for the townspeople and he is nasty to them.  He tells them that their writing is awful but offers no helpful suggestions. The people start to hate him.  Then Heppel is found dead. Lt. Blair thinks the townspeople are responsible but Hamish knows it is someone else.  Will he figure it out?

      From the author:
      Famous writer John Heppel is a bitter, self-important man who cruelly belittles the scribblings of the locals signed up for his writing course. So when Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth finds Heppel murdered, his mouth filled with ink, it seems like a fitting fate.
      Suddenly, Macbeth's idyllic life of walks with his dog, Lugs, and afternoon tea disappears as the media descend on the village—along with Detective Chief Inspector Heather Meikle, a man-eater with a taste for bachelor constables. Desperate to escape her clutches, Macbeth rekindles dangerous passions of auld lang syne with his former girlfriend Elspeth. Now with Heather's hot breath on his neck, he must draft a plan to capture a mad, mad killer—one crazy enough to strike again.
      Excerpt:

      Chapter One

      No man, but a blockhead, ever wrote, except for money. -Samuel Johnson
      There used to be quite a lot going on in a highland village during the long, dark winter months. There was a ceilidh every week where the locals danced or performed, singing the old songs or reciting poetry. Often there was a sewing circle with its attendant gossip; the Mothers' Union meetings; the Girl Guides and Boy Scouts classes; and the weekly film show in the village hall. But with the advent of television and videos, people often preferred to stay cosily indoors, being amused by often violent films with heroines with high cheekbones, collagen-enhanced lips, and heels so high it made ankles comfortably ending in slippered feet just ache to look at them.
      Therefore when Hamish Macbeth, police constable of Lochdubh, heard that a newcomer, John Heppel, was planning to hold a series of writers' classes in the village hall, he set out to dissuade him. As he said to his fisherman friend, Archie Maclean, "I don't want to see the poor wee man humiliated when nobody turns up."
      Hamish had seen a poster in Patel's general store: DO YOU WANT TO BE A FAMOUS WRITER? FAMOUS WRITER JOHN HEPPEL WILL HELP YOU BECOME ONE.
      The first meeting was scheduled for the following week on a Wednesday evening atseven-thirty. Hamish knew that on that evening Petticoat Cops was showing at just that time, a cop series set in LA with three leggy blondes with large lips, high busts, and an amazing skill with firearms and kung fu. He did not know anyone in Lochdubh who would risk missing the latest episode, except perhaps himself.
      So on one wet black evening with a gusty gale blowing in from the Atlantic and ragged clouds ripping across the sky, Hamish got into the police Land Rover and set out for John's cottage, which was out on the moors above the village of Cnothan. Hamish was feeling lonely. His affair with the local reporter, Elspeth Grant, had come to an abrupt halt. She had been offered a job on a Glasgow newspaper and had asked him bluntly if he meant to marry her.
      And Hamish had dithered, then he had said he'd think about it, and by the time he had got around to really considering the idea, Elspeth had accepted the job and left. He wondered gloomily whether he was cut out to live with anyone, for his first feeling on hearing the news that she had gone was one of relief.
      He wondered at first why John had not decided to hold his classes in Cnothan but then reflected that Cnothan was a sour town and specialised in ostracising newcomers.
      Sergeant MacGregor, who had policed Cnothan for years, had retired, and the village and surrounding area had been added on to Hamish's already extensive beat. Village police stations were being closed down all over the place, and Hamish had not felt strong enough to protest at the extra work in case he lost his beloved home in the police station in Lochdubh.
      Hamish had never met John Heppel. Normally he would have made a courtesy call, but an irritating series of burglaries over in Braikie had to be solved, and somehow the man's arrival in the Highlands had gone out of his mind. Much as he loved Sutherland and could not consider living anywhere else, Hamish knew that newcomers often relocated to the far north of Scotland through misguided romanticism. Writers or painters imagined that the solitude and wild scenery would inspire them, but usually it was the very long dark winters that finally defeated them.
      He drove through Cnothan, bleak and rain-swept under the orange glare of sodium lights, and up onto the moors. The heathery track leading to John's cottage had a poker-work sign pointing the way. It said, "Writer's Folly."
      Hamish drove along the track and parked outside the low whitewashed cottage that was John's home.

He has decided they are not going to have sex again until after the wedding.  Does he really know what he is getting into? Chloe's nerves are already frayed and they are still in NYC. They get to San Diego and things start to go wrong. Is it a message from the universe?
      I loved this one! Chloe and Bennett really love each other. Through out this four day story, you really see the journey they were on.

      From the author:
      Wedding bells can’t chime soon enough for Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan. Chloe, exasperated and stressed by all the last-minute to-dos, is on the verge of saying “I do” to eloping. For his part, Bennett’s so worried about being distracted by Chloe’s body that he makes a no-sex-until-the-wedding-night rule that only seems to be making things worse by continually backfiring on him.As their crazy families descend for the big day- only a few of them actually trying to be helpful- the fiery lovers are about to test whether the couple that argues together can keep it together long enough to exchange rings, and not just heated words.

      The Case of The Green-Eyed Sister by Erle Stanley Gardner

      Sylvia Atwood has come to Perry for help.  Her father is being blackmailed.  He started his successful business with money that was lent by a friend, JJ Fritch. Supposedly, Fritch stole this money from a bank. Perry wants to hear the recording that the blackmailer, Brogan, has alluding to Mr. Bain's admission of knowing the money was stolen. Perry is figuring the family's way out of this when Sylvia stumbles onto Fritch's dead body in Brogan apartment. The police then arrest Sylvia's sister Hattie.  Who really committed this crime?
      I enjoyed this book. I did not figure it out until the story revealed the killer! Sylvia was a shifty character! I liked how Della put her in her place once or twice!


      From goodreads:
      Perry Mason was retained to protect the interests of the Bain family, who were being blackmailed with an audio confession of a crime they didn't commit. Mason manages to erase the recording right out from under their nose, but then finds himself defending Hattie Bain on a murder charge.

      Mason's courtroom dramatics hit a high note when he produces a theory which changes the time of death, and puts an witness with an seemingly unshakable alibi on the hot seat. Then the theory is collaborated with evidence overlooked by the police, and all hell is raised with the prosecutions theory of the case.

      Lost Highways by Curtiss Ann Matlock

      Rainey is a twice divorced 34 year old woman. She seems lost in life especially after her mother dies. She inherits her mother's truck, trailer and barrel racing horse. Rainey decides to quit her job and go barrel racing, just to get away. One night she is driving down the highway and thinks she has hit a man on the side of the road. She stops and finds him.  She did not hit him but he has been in an accident.  She gets him to go with her to the next town.  His name is Harry. He is very well dressed but seems out of it. When they get to town he decides to go with her to her Uncle's place. Rainey is lost. Harry is lost. But together they are strong.  Will they be together?  Are they what each other needs?

      I liked these characters. They both need to be true to themselves and stop being what others expect or want them to be. I am happy to find out that there are more books in this series. I have never read this author before and Liked this book!

      From the author:
      The Valentine Series begins with Lost Highways…
         Meet Rainey Valentine: thirty-five, twice divorced, with broken dreams but irrepressible hope. When her mother dies, she inherits a truck, an old barrel-racing mare, and a lifetime supply of Mary Kay cosmetics. Taking a page from her mother’s life, Rainey packs up and heads off, leaving Valentine, Oklahoma in her rearview mirror. Along her travels of back roads, she picks up strays, both animal and human, and begins to discover that what she was looking for was all the time back home in Valentine.
      Excerpt:
      I'll Know When I Get There
      A faded red car came up the entry ramp on her right. A little piss-ant economy job that looked as if it had been through the wringer. The driver door was primer gray. Giving out a puff of black smoke, it pulled right over in front of her.
      Highly annoyed, Rainey thought that the driver obviously did not know the foremost rule of the road, which was that the biggest vehicle had the right of way. She would have moved over to make room for the little red car, but there was an eighteen-wheeler coming up on her left that would, she was fairly certain, mow her down without compunction.
      Her nerves went to twanging as she came up on the little car that seemed incapable of gaining speed. It had a fluffy pillow in the back window . . . no, it was a cat, and a tennis shoe. The cat's head came up, its eyes widened, and it fled.
      She tapped her brakes, harder and harder, to keep from running over the car, and she imagined her mare, her mother's mare, back in the trailer, trying to suck her hooves on the floor in order to stay on her feet.
      The eighteen-wheeler moved on ahead, leaving room for Rainey to pull into the left lane. Looking at the open road ahead with satisfaction, she began to press the accelerator.
      The next instant, to her immense surprise and alarm, the little red piss-ant car pulled to the left, right in front of her again. The only reason she could come up with for this erratic move was that the driver felt the need to try out both lanes before settling on one.
      Hands gripping the steering wheel, she again tapped the brake. She pictured running up on the little car's bumper and pushing. If her sister Charlene had been beside her, she would have been saying, "Now, Rainey . . . now, Rainey."
      Charlene accused Rainey of being an aggressive driver. "Road rage. It's the epidemic of the modern age," Charlene said. "I saw all about it on CNN, and you've got it."
      "I don't have rage . . . Don't blow annoyance at inconsiderate drivers into rage. I am a considerate driver and expect others to be so. That's not too much to ask, if you ask me."
      Maneuvering back to the right, she pressed the accelerator more forcefully this time and edged ahead while keeping a sharp eye on the faded red car for further signs of foolish behavior. She was ready to repel the little car if necessary.
      Like a big ocean liner, her diesel truck took a bit to pick up speed, but once it got going, it really went down the road. She glanced in the side mirror and saw the little red car fighting the buffeting winds in the wake of her passing. She felt a little guilty. It might have been inconsiderate of her to pass so quickly that she blew him off the road.

      Beautiful Stranger by Christina Lauren


      Sara has had enough with Adam. So she is going to take up Chloe and Bennetts's offer of a job with Ryan Media in NYC. She has vowed to change her life and be who she really is. Then she meets a gorgeous man in a night club and has sex with him in a hallway, where anyone can see.  She thinks she will never see him again but he ends up being Bennett's college roommate, Max Stella. Max wants Sara like he has never wanted a woman before. She offers to be his - for sex one night a week with a few rules. How long is that going to last? He is starting to fall for her. One night a week is not enough and he starts to want more. Will she?

      Another good one from these ladies!! I only have one more in this series to read. Bummer!  I like these people!

      From the author:
      Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon’s moved to New York City and is looking for excitement without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night’s fun. But the manner–and speed–with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup and into her Beautiful Stranger.
      The whole city knows Max Stella loves women, not that he’s ever found one he particularly wants to keep around. Despite pulling in plenty with his Wall Street bad boy charm, it’s not until Sara–and the wild photos she lets him take of her–that he starts wondering if there’s someone for him outside of the bedroom.
      Hooking up in places where anybody could catch them, the only thing scarier for Sara than getting caught in public is having Max get too close in private.

      Yellowstone Heart Song by Peggy L. Henderson

      I got this one for free on amazon. I really liked it. Aimee Donovan is taking care of a man named Zach in the hospital where she works. He tells her that he can send her back in time 150 years to Yellowstone.  She loves to backpack there. So on a whim she gets a pack of stuff ready and he sends her back. She does not believe it worked. She needs to find her way to his son's cabin. Zach says he will come to his son's house in three months and send her back. Unfortunately, Aimee has a run in with a bear and accidentally falls over a cliff.
      Daniel is at his place and his Indian brother Running Elk tells him of a crazy white woman he has been tracking. White women are a rarity in the wilderness. They go look for her. The men find her just in time and take her back to Daniel's cabin. He does not want a woman around especially a white one.  He had a bad time in Philadelphia with a white woman. But he eventually starts to respect and fall for Aimee. She is not like other women. She is interested in the wilderness and treats his Indian family very well.
      What will happen when Zach comes back?


      From goodreads:
      Nurse and avid backpacker Aimee Donovan is offered the opportunity of a lifetime. She encounters a patient who tells her he can send her two hundred years into the past to spend three months in the rugged Yellowstone wilderness at the dawn of the mountain man era. The only requirement: she cannot tell anyone that she’s from the future.

      How did a white woman suddenly appear in the remote Rocky Mountain wilderness? Trapper Daniel Osborne’s first instinct is to protect this mysterious and unconventional woman from the harsh realities of his mountains. While he fights his growing attraction to her, he is left frustrated by her lies and secrecy.

      Daniel shows Aimee a side of Yellowstone she’s never experienced. She is torn between her feelings for him, and exposing a secret that will destroy everything he holds as truth. As her three months come to an end, she is faced with a dilemma: return to her own time, or stay with the man who opened her eyes to a whole new world. When the decision is made for her, both their lives will be changed forever.
