Karen,

Great list of books. I've just finished H.B. Moore's fourth Out of Jerusalem book. YOU WILL LOVE IT! I couldn't put it down. It just about killed me to have to do that and go work at the LDSBA Convention.

My mom is a HUGE fan of Heather's. She's going to be totally jealous that you've read it already. It seems every month she asks me if the fourth one is out yet. I can't wait to read them!
