From the Review Pile: A Charmed Life and Lifeguard

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.

The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review, but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

This week from my Review Pile:

A Charmed Life
By Jenny B. Jones
Release Date May 1, 2012

The popular YA series in a single volume!

So Not Happening – New York's social darling just woke up in a nightmare: Oklahoma. Bella had it all. Then her father decided to trade her mother in for a newer model. When her mom falls in love with a man she met on the Internet, Bella has to move in with her new family in Truman, Oklahoma. On a farm no less! How can a girl go on when her charmed life is gone and God appears to be giving her the total smack down?

I’m So Sure – Think you're having a rough week? Bella's stepdad just signed the family up for a reality TV show. As if having a camera crew following her around isn't bad enough, Bella discovers a conspiracy against the prom queen candidates. Denying allegations of a love triangle, working to solve the prom queen mystery, and trying to keep her cool on national television finally motivate Bella to start talking—and listening—to God more.

So Over My Head – Newly single, stalked by a killer, and in desperate need of some chic clown shoes—Bella is one skinny mocha frapp away from total meltdown. When the carnival arrives in

Truman, Bella's reporter instincts tell her the bright lights hide more than they reveal. Her suspicions are confirmed when one of the stars is murdered. Is God sending her a message in all of this madness? With a murderer on the loose and her boyfriend's ex on the prowl, this undercover clown has never had more to juggle.

I hadn't heard of either of these before now, but they look really good - especially A Charmed Life! Good choices!

I go to the beach in RI (my family is from there) I feel like I MUST read this book (but I am going to have to get it on my Nook- this cover, while quite nice to look at, is not something I am ready to be seen in public with!)

A perfect summer read, thanks for sharing :-)
