Cassandra's Review-  With delicious looking photos and directions that are clear as well as easy to read, this recipe book is a wonderful gift.  I really enjoy cooking for and with my family and especially finding new ways to eat good on a tighter budget so the ingredients list in this book is a nice find.  The ingredients can mostly all be found locally as well which is a huge plus.

The Songs of You and Me by Mylissa Demeyere
The Songs of You and Me by [Demeyere, Mylissa]

Jane Hartford fell head over heels for Jackson at the tender age of fifteen. She spent most of high school pining for him, until she realized he wasn’t going to see her as anything more than his baby sister’s best friend. Now she finds herself single with a daughter, a broken heart, and songs that remind her of a long lost love.

Jackson Wright is a man living with regret. His biggest one, never acting on his feelings for Jane. When he returns to Bellebrook, the town they grew up in, he literally runs into her and his world gets tossed upside down and sideways.

This time, Jackson isn’t willing to give up. With a meddling sister eager to push both of them together, he believes things might actually work out. That is, if they can overcome the heavy baggage they both carry. Follow Jackson and Jane as they revisit their past, figuring out what went wrong so long ago.

Will they learn they have the power to make things right in the present?
