Mountain Top by Robert Whitlow. I thought this was a good story. It's about a former lawyer who is now a minister and his defense of an eccentric older man who is accused of robbing a church. His involvement lands him in a lot of trouble but he learn a few things along the way.

Donna Hay Christmas: simple recipes, menu planners is a lovely book.
The photography is awesome and the recipes are easy.
The Ultimate Handcrafted Christmas: 200 decorations, gifs, cards and treats to make for a perfect Christmas by Alan D. Gear and Barry L. Freestone has lots of easy and not-too-difficult craft patterns and instructions. And they aren't tacky stuff. (This is not the right cover photo, but kind of looks like it.)
Christmas Gifts from the Kitchen by Jean Paré has a lot of cookie,
fudge and sauce recipes as well as instructions for making dry mixes
and gifts in a jar and some crafts and wrapping ideas.
Rick Steves' European Christmas is an informative book on traditions and history. Lots of photos, but not the relaxing read I was hoping for.
Intervention by Terri Blackstock is about an 18-year-old drug addict who is on her way to rehab when the woman accompanying her is murdered. The girl is abducted and the police and her mother are frantically trying to find her. I enjoyed this book.
