Special Agent Emily Dahill of the CIA, had a very interesting partner in the form of a collie named, Dakota. This animal wrote along with her in the sidecar of her motorcycle. While there were various investigations, shootings, murder, etc... I didn't find this a very interesting and easy to follow book. I actually read the book a couple of times looking for things I may have missed, but still came up short. I didn't find the story line easy to follow and seemingly choppy. I would give this read 1 of 5 stars.

There is great information concerning both low and high fructose and the results of both. While we can't escape fructose we can learn how to modify our behavior to make it less obtrusive to our system when we consume it correctly.
There are wonderful charts signifying what is low to high fructose explaining what is better for your health and well being. There are great examples of how to lose weight thus bringing sugar levels under control.
Dr. Bray talks about monitoring your behavior and then changing your behavior for a more healthy lifestyle. He gives great insight into how one can improve their health and do so with a positive result.
After reading many diet books and feeling confused as to what would or would not work, I can honestly say that this is one of the best books that I have read. I found it to be one that I will keep within my library to use as a reference tool.
I received a complimentary copy of "The Low-Fructose Approach to Weight Control" as a member of the Dorrance Publishing Book Review Team. Visit www.dorrancebookstore.com to learn how you can become a member of the Book Review Team.

This book was divided into two distinct sections. The first being of the authors own experiences and calling to be a pastor. The second part deals with various topics of concern that share his views as well as other insights.
The first section was very enjoyable to read as you learned about how someone was raised, believed and then discovered new beliefs as they matured and grew in life. I really could see the value of Christians reading this material and allowing themselves to be stretched and learn from another's life experiences.
The second section was deeper in theology and topics. It is here that my personal differences in the authors views would come into play, however I did enjoy the
This book certainly helps one to think about why they believe what they do as well as to develop a way of explaining those beliefs. While many mainline Christians within the local churches won't agree with the author on many of his beliefs, I personally feel many of the issues that he brought to light are beneficial.
I agree that we should spend more time in being like Jesus than in one of the Apostles or rules of the church. It is so easy to be like the religious leaders of the New Testament that we forget that Christ is to be the example of mankind.
I would give this 5 of 5 stars because of how open, humble and no mud slinging the author was in his presentation.

This is the first book that I have read by Julie Anne Lindsey but I certainly will look forward to many more to come.
I really enjoyed the spunky Cyndi who left Honey Creek to explore the city lights in New York. While she returns for a brief visit with her grandmother, things take a turn as she encounters the likes of Mitchell Fallon. She immediately noticed how handsome he was but was furious at how slow he was driving his tractor causing her to almost be late to meet her grandmother when she returned home.
After several outbursts toward Michell she later found out he was the local church pastor. While she hadn't been attending church for quite sometime, wondering if she would ever be able to move past her experiences, she was falling for this wonderful man.
Through several events that unfold concerning the reasons why Cyndi left Honey Creek and the care and understanding of Mitchell she found that God's love was forgiving and that she could accept not only His love, but Mitchell's as well.
This is a very enjoyable read.
5 of 5 stars.

Freedom Costs A Price
While this book may not be a read for everyone I do think if you enjoy action, security, government and freedom material, you will enjoy this read.
I wish Mr. Lopez much success with this book as well as others that are sure to come in the future.
4 of 5 stars.
