Returning
Returning: Episode I - A.L. Knorr

Mira is a mermaid on a mission. Having said goodbye to the ocean she's looking to procreate with her still-to-be-found mate.

This was a quick and easy read. The story is enough to keep you entertained for the give-or-take hour it took me to complete it. However, there is a lot of convenience in there. Being a mermaid has installed Mira  with a lot of 'feeling' things. So she will immediately know when she first sees her mate that it's him (talk about some instalove). Also, her set of powers comes in extremely handy. Some things also seemed a bit strange, as for example when Mira is talking about supernaturals.

While it didn't bother me too much in this novella, I'm not sure I would like to read a complete novel that's this convenient.

Lutheran Ladies-scary
The Lutheran Ladies' Circle: Plucking One String - Kris Knorr;Barb Froman
Being a life-long Lutheran, (baptized in the church, confirmed in the church, married in the church and God-willing, buried in the church) I had to pick this up. When I began reading I thought, "Oh, no. This is exactly why people prefer corporate greed and the moral ambiguity of the workplace over trying to run the gauntlet of church politics." But thankfully, I was wrong. Yes, at first I looked at the characters and recognized them as people who sat in my pew, but as the book continued, I was more than a little surprised to see myself in the characters. I love how the author explains Lutheran theology and presents all its quirks and faults with a lot of humor. Some of my favorite lines:
"Why don't you ask God where your pen is?"
"I would never presume to bother God about a pen."
"Then your God is too small."


"The-I-can-do-anything. I'm-covered-because-of-grace doctrine. Right?"

"I wanted Easter to be perfect. Easter shouldn't change."
"That's what Pontius Pilate said, too. You crucify a guy, why can't he stay dead?"...
"This is different."
"And my favorite, and this is why I joined the church; 'Why can't that priest at that little church, what's his name? Martin Luther? Yeah. Why can't Luther juts shut-up and let us continue to sell forgiveness for sins? Little, nobody priest trying to change. things.'"


There are many more, but these were a few of my favorites. Recommended for anyone with even a nodding acquaintance of church ladies and all that goes along with their church work.
