Dump the allowance-and use a new "Family Economy" to raise responsible children in an age of instant gratification.

Number-one New York Times bestselling authors Richard and Linda Eyre, have spent the last twenty-five years helping parents nurture strong, healthy families. Now they've synthesized their vast experience in an essential blueprint to instilling children with a sense of ownership, responsibility, and self-sufficiency. At the heart of their plan is the "Family Economy" complete with a family bank, checkbooks for kids, and a system of initiative-building responsibilities that teaches kids to earn money for the things they want. The motivation carries over to ownership of their own decisions, values, and goals. Anecdotal, time-tested, and gently humorous, The Entitlement Trap challenges some of the sacred cows of parenting and replaces them with values that will save kids (and their parents) from a lifetime of dependence and disabling debt.

I have to admit that I wasn't happy with the turn in Jayne Castle's Harmony books to the Arcane Society. The books went from everyone has some low-level psychic ability from living on Harmony, with a few outliers, to hey, these people have awesome psychic abilities from living on Earth, isn't that awesome? No, no it is not. It just felt like it was a way of making each of the characters more special than the last, which sacrificed good character development and story-telling. Plus, I also felt like I was being manipulated into reading her other books written under her other pseudonyms. Some of the Arcane/Harmony novels were better than others, but to be honest, with this one? I've read it more than once and I barely remember it.

To much cloak and dagger for me not enough romance and blood and gore.

Enjoyable read, futuristic mystery/romance and a dust bunny.

A bit formulaic, with no new elements. The dialogue is flat.

Jayne Castle (aka Jayne Krentz; aka Amanda Quick) is one of my favorite authors. I usually really enjoy her futuristic novels, but felt this one lagged well behind her other novels. Although the story is set after the closing of the "Curtain" you'd never know this was a futuristic story. There was no mention of coff-tea or much details into the alien world the story is set in. Everything seems pretty North American 21st century to me. Anyhow, I felt the story moved slowly and the characters lacked any real depth. For an author whose writing is usually so tight and suspenseful, the sign of a poorly written story is that I was able to put this book down several times, while I usually pull an all-nighter because I'm so involved in the story. Don't waste your time on this one. Do yourself a favor and read some of her work from the early 2000s.

The usual quirky heroine paired up with the dark, dangerous hero. The main difference is that they met as teens while in a remote island town(he saved her from maliscious tourists), and meet again years later when she takes over her aunt's business and he takes over as sheriff. He is one of the few heroes to have a dustbunny companion as opposed to her having one.
