Committable

It's too early to tell, but Ripple Johnson may go down as one of the greatest amateur sleuths in the history of commercial fiction (remember, if it says it on the internet, it's true.) By day, he's a high school assistant principal with questionable job security. By weekend, an overqualified yet blasphemous church youth leader. And by the dark of night, a clandestine infomercial host too talented to maintain his double life for much longer. But no matter the day, and no matter the job, and no matter if he suddenly and uncontrollably sounds like a British playwright when lying, he will stop at nothing (that's not always true; he stops at lots of stuff) to seek justice for those he loves.

Somebody is blackmailing Ripple's best friend Kimmie, only they don't know why and they don't know what the blackmailer wants. As Ripple goes in search of how that is even possible, he uncovers past and present secrets and indiscretions that challenge his mental and emotional resolve. As the search wears on, every person who might possess a clue keeps disappearing, showing signs that Kimmie is not the only one being blackmailed. And with each passing page, Ripple grows a little more unstable, a little more unpredictable, and a little more determined to find out just what in the hell is going on.

With help from his best friend (who is experiencing what may be male menopause) and a new girl that appears out of nowhere and applies shock paddles to his listless and troubled heart (and has sex with him for the first time in like five years,) Ripple is in a seemingly unwinnable race against time and truth. But as those truths become more and more outrageous and despicable, he is forced to make a decision that could destroy an already shaky ability to self-preserve, but also a decision that could save the only family he knows. Committable is a fun and often funny novel with a whole bunch of heart and just the right amount of suspense, mystery, family drama, love story, and craziness to make it a very enjoyable read. You will NOT be disappointed.

Winging It!: Confessions of an Angel In Training

Ever decided to do something that seemed like a good idea and in the second before there's no turning back think, I musta been totally mental when I came up with this? And, then, Oh, well, here goes. That's how Angel-In-Training Grace Lightbourne felt right before she asked the Big Kahuna to go straight to Earth on a mission as a Guardian Angel. The problem? She never was a great student and now she won't even finish her last three years of school. To make matters worse, Archangel Michael isn't happy about her special assignment, but Grace is convinced she's on a fast track to her wings. How hard can it be? She's working with humans, after all. Winging It!, the first book in the Angel-in-Training series, is an irreverent, light hearted take on Angels, Heaven and everything else that's divine.
