HOW TO TAKE THE EX OUT OF EX-BOYFRIEND by Janette Rallison

Boyfriends are supposed to be loyal, caring, and handsome. Giovanna's boyfriend, Jesse, has perfected the last two. But when her twin brother, Dante, runs for student body president, Jesse doesn't support Dante, choosing to campaign for his opponent instead. Shouldn't the fact that Jesse is Giovanna's boyfriend count for something? So Giovanna dumps Jesse and becomes Dante's campaign manager. But as the political debates heat up, Giovanna begins to regret breaking up with Jesse, and realizes that maybe her decision wasn't the political strategy she should have used . . . .

I LOVE JANETTE RALLISON'S BOOKS! And that's my review!

"...few steps away to take the call in private while I stared at my shoes and wondered if it wold be lethal to eat a pair.
I mean, let's face it. There was a much greater chance that I'd be sawing up a pair of high heels than there was that Jesse would e chewing down chunks of his cowboy boots.""Giovanna!" Jesse motioned me over to where he stood and pushed the mute button on his phone. "I thought it was Dante, but actually it's your stepmom." One of his eyebrows rose, and he tilted his head at me. "Do you have any idea why she would holler at me for being with you at the mall?"
"She's pretty much psychotic," I said.
"Could it be you didn't tell her you were coming here?"
"Well, that too."
He shook his head and handed me the phone.
I released the mute button and held the phone to my ear. "Hello?"
That's really all I got to say. The rest of the phone conversation was Gabby screaming at me because she'd come home early in order to supervise the garage cleanup, and I'd disobeyed her and gone off the the mall.
"Don't think there won't be consequences for running of with your boyfriend after I told you that you couldn't..."

DAUGHTER OF ISHMAEL by Diane Tolley BLOG TOUR and SPOTLIGHT!

I'm spotlighting Diane Tolley's book Daughter of Ishmael!
(Isn't the cover pretty??)


Hannah, faithful third daughter of Ishmael has been raised happily in the home of an honourable man. A woman wholly committed to her Saviour. A woman who understands Nephi’s love of the scriptures and commitment to the gospel and secretly longs for such a husband, but finds herself given in marriage to his older brother, Lemuel.
Through the women’s eyes, Daughter of Ishmael follows the family of Ishmael as they commit themselves to Lehi and find their faith tested in the wilderness. Recounts their struggles there with deaths, births and apostasy. Tells of their time in Bountiful and the building of a ship. And their suffering below decks on the Great Irriantum when Laman and Hannah’s husband, Lemuel battle the Lord Himself in their drive to defeat Nephi and take control of the family.
Even their arrival in the Promised Land isn’t without its challenges as they settle. Pride, envy and greed are…
