Books read Sept 9

The Sea Keeper's Daughter by Lisa Wingate
Whitney and her cousin run 2 restaurants but one is failing and has met with disapproval at every turn. She hopes there is still some hope to get them out of debt and to make a go of both, but in the meantime the second one remains closed.
She then gets notified her step father, Clyde is in the hospital off the coast of NC and she decides to go there to help with his estate and try to get his kids to care for him...
Love the mystique of the sea captains, their ships that have wrecked on the coast and the wild horses...
Love hearing of all the treasures in her parents house, so precious!  Fascinating to learn about the FWP, never knew of it.
Story inside of this other story are the letters from her grandmother's twin sister who she had no idea even existed. Loved hearing of the FWP and the places it took her and her daughter in the hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Facts about the sea turtles and how they are hatched are welcome new to me, information. Like references to Sandy's Seashell Shop and the story keepers saga.
She does have a decision to make about the property and she also has choices. Love how the stories are all connected.
I received this book from Tyndale via Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.

Was interested in learning more about the Spanish language as I had taken it in high school for a few years.
Lot of the words I'd not use in an everyday conversation but the book gets you to use proper usage of words in the right tense.
 Liked layout of the book and how the lessons are presented. Like especially filling in the missing words from the previous pages that you've studied.
I didn't care for the length of the book. Some words/sentences take up one whole page as you are learning what the words mean.
Liked searching for Spanish words in a puzzle format.  Other works by the author are highlighted at the end.

Children's Books : Sweet as Fruit (Books for kids , ages 4-11 ) (Nutrildren - Nutrition for Children Book 2
Have read some of the author's other works and enjoyed all the new information to a better lifestyle along with a good story for kids to follow along with.
This book is a colorful children's book about the benefits of eating fruit.
Very interesting book but I felt it was more directed to the older kids and adults because of all the technical terms that one can hardly pronounce but with a parent reading along with a child they could easily understand about the fruit and why we must eat it daily.
Super photos and fun facts about all the fruit we can easily get throughout the year in the US and it's link to the states.
Learned so much by reading this and hope the next book will be along the same lines but about vegetables.
Love the idea of having a balanced rainbow source of fruits. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end along with a clickable link for free gifts.
Was alerted to this free kindle book from the author and I have provided this honest review.

Top 35 Amazing Cakes Recipes for the Whole Family (The Best Recipes For Your Festive Table Book 2)
Other works by the author are highlighted at the beginning of this book.
Broken up into categories and I like that it tells you how long it will take to prepare the dish.
No pictures and no nutritional information but has a lot of recipes for fancy endings and feasts.
Very detailed instructions on what to mix, when and any other tips with step by step instructions.
Yogurt cakes look like the healthiest in this book.
