A Proper Attire is now available on amazon for 99 cents Go to www.daniellethorne.com to get a FREE Smashwords copy of Turtle Soup If You Had Been There A Devotional by Danielle Thorne I love the stories in the New Testament. We learn so much about the life and mission of Jesus Christ and about His apostles, too. We learn how to apply the principles of the gospel to our lives as we study them.

Enjoy A Romantic Cozy Mystery: The Shamrock Case
There are many types of mysteries to choose from such as a cozy mystery, hard-boiled, soft-boiled, or the thriller. What is the difference? A cozy is an enjoyable story with a bit of humor. It can be slow paced but not boring by any means. The sleuth is always an intelligent and likeable woman. This genre is G-rated and focuses on the characters.
