My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren

This was a very sweet story about learning to overcome the obstacles and trials that we have in our lives.  There are a couple of romances in the story.  Issy has been struggling ever since her mother died in a car accident.  She has been slowly making progress.  When she meets her new neighbor she starts to realize that maybe she doesn't have all the answers and sometimes she just needs to let go.  It is fun to watch the characters grow and heal in this story.  It was a very good read.  I would give it 4/5 stars.

The Lightkeeper's Ball by Colleen Coble

This was a very light read.  It was a bit of a mystery as well as a romance.  Parts of the book were a little cheesy, but overall it was a fun read.  Olivia Stewart wants to be loved for who she is inside, not for her status in society.  When she finds out about her sister's death, she is determined to find out more about it before she agrees to a marriage that her mother has arranged.  She finds out some heartbreaking things, but also finds the kind of love that she has always wanted.  I would give it 3/5 stars.
