Description/Blurb:

I left everything I knew behind.

But it was worth it. He was worth it.

No one thought an ordinary girl like me would last two minutes living with the Amish, not even me. There are a lot more rules and a lot less freedom, and I miss my family and the life I once had. Worst of all, Noah and I aren’t even allowed to see each other. Not until I’ve proven myself.

Students are dying, and she may be the only one who can stop it. Can she keep her job, her sanity, and her friends from dying at the hands of angels she can't admit to seeing?

When a member of the track team is murdered, Winter has an opportunity to use her special ability to find the killer. Trouble is, kissing everyone on the track team isn’t such a good idea when you have a new boyfriend. Talk about complications!

Rabid Reader Ramblings (4): Barnes and Noble and Their (lack of) Customer Service @nookBN

R3-Header

So, I do these from time to time when a topic really gets to me.  I debated long and hard about posting this one but after consulting with several people, several people said that, yes, it is book related and it would fit with the blog.  Also, several people I consulted with felt that it was something my readers needed to hear about, as many of my readers have Barnes and Noble devices.  So, this is going to be a fairly long rant, and away we go.
