Against the Law (The Raines of Wind Canyon) by Kat Martin
Genre(s): Fiction, Romantic Suspense, Historical Fiction
t thirty-two Dev is “mostly retired” from Raines Investigations, content to run operations from his sprawling Arizona home. But Dev has never been able to say no to a beautiful woman, so when Lark Delaney comes to him for help, the former U.S. Army Ranger from Wind Canyon gets back in the game.
Lark is sexy, successful and dedicated to tracking down the baby girl her sister gave up for adoption. It should be a straightforward case, but it’s not long before Dev uncovers a shady adoption ring and worse—the child’s parents have been murdered and the little girl has been taken.
As the case grows dangerous and Lark needs him more than ever, Dev can’t ignore his growing attraction for her. He also can’t trust his judgment with women or the emotions he’s long-since buried. But there’s a chance, if he gets this right and saves Lark’s niece, that he’ll end up saving himself, too.

New Horizons by Flyleaf
Genre(s): Rock, Alternative Rock
From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
picked this up without even having heard Flyleaf had a new album out. I didn’t know what to expect from it, but I was not disappointed at all, except to find out later that Lacey is leaving. Ouch!
Overall I agree that the sound is a little more pop-ish and more produced. I actually like the poppier sound in songs like “Bury Your Heart”; I guess my earlier favorite Flyleaf songs were the more accessible ones anyway.
I won’t attempt a song-by-song review, but I will say that my opinion on several of the songs changed between the first listen and the 10th or 15th. “Fire Fire” still stands out with me as does “Bury Your Heart”, while “Call You Out”, which I initially thought was one of the more enjoyable and interesting songs, no longer seems so. I am noticing more variety now than I did the first couple times through.
I agree that the album is shorter than I’d like, especially knowing it’s supposed to be Lacey’s last. Also, the CD insert is completely disappointing, with virtually no information.
For anyone who likes the sound of Flyleaf, I think this is well worth having. I would compare it favorably to Memento Mori (more similar to it than to Flyleaf). Even where there are differences, the songs are all characteristically Flyleaf’s style.
