Mystery, romance and a strange book

The Miracle of Mercy Land is a very engaging story about a young girl who is entrusted with a very mysterious and strange book.

You will fall in love the main character, Mercy Land, who is trustworthy and practical.  She is entrusted with a book that allows the reader to see into the lives, past and present, of strangers, friends and loved ones. Mercy now posses the power to change the future based on past decisions.  She is later thrown off balance when a charming and handsome young man enters her life.  She soon finds out that he is as mysterious as the book and Mercy is determined to solve the mystery behind them both.

All in all, the book includes a pleasant mix of romance and mystery with a sprinkling of science fiction.  While some parts were a little slow, I still recommend it as a good read.

Book Review: Tandem by Tracey Bateman

This book is mainly about vampires committing murders in a small town.

The book broaches two subjects: vampires and christianity.  The marriage of these two topics in a story was a strange union for me because the subject of vampires is purely fantasy but the subject of God, Christianity, or religion (any religion) is real.  However, in the book, vampires and religion were both portrayed as reality. This could be very confusing to a person who searching for truth.  What is real and what is fantasy?

I must admit that if I had realized this was a "Christian" book about vampires, I probably would not have picked it up to read. However, that being said, the book, taken at face value, was a very engaging and enjoyable read.
