. I intend to read her Last Chance series next, can't wait. BOOK THREE of THE GOODFELLOW CHRONICLES TRILOGY:WHEN A YOUNG BOY BECOMES THE FIRST HUMAN IN HISTORY TO STUMBLE UPON A RACE OF SMALL CREATURES THAT HAS BEEN SECRETLY GUIDING AND INSPIRING "GIFTED" PEOPLE THROUGHOUT TIME, HE TRIGGERS A COSMIC CONVERGENCE AND A DANGEROUS CONFRONTATION BETWEEN THE FORCES OF GOOD AND EVIL. There also some wonderful little surprises in the artwork- look very carefully at the gingerbread men. The actual, factual truth is there is no more of a peaceful race, respectful race, loving race of humans than African Americans. I knew the author growing up and therefore knew if his leanings. For a homeowner, collector, interior designer, or booklover - this is a great find. Other times it is fun. On a whim, he and a fellow attorney go to a bar/lounge for a drink and there Justin meets Bailey Sinclair; a starving wannabe law student, drowning in debt and her desire to never be like her mother and live off handout from men. Many of them are no more than price guides - this one is actually a pleasure to READ.
