  • Bonus Review: Calico Spy

    11 March 2016

    "Calico Spy" by Margaret Brownley is the third book in the "Undercover Ladies" series. While I didn't enjoy the books of this series nearly as much as I did "Gunpowder Tea", this was still a good mystery. This can work as a stand alone novel, as really...

  • The Cowboy's Bride Collection

    11 March 2016

    The Cowboy's Bride Collection is yet another novella collection by Barbour publishers. I liked this one better than the Love is Patient Romance Collection which I've previously reviewed. I find that it's kind of a hit-or-miss with novella collections,...

  • Undaunted Hope

    20 March 2016

    Undaunted Hope is the third book in the "Beacons of Hope" trilogy...except I saw recently that there will be a fourth book so it's not really a trilogy!! Eek! I'm so excited. So anyway, this is by Jody Hedlund and published by Bethany House. Each book...

  • Bonus: Whispers in the Reading Room

    26 March 2016

    Whispers in the Reading Room by Shelley Gray is the third book in the "Chicago World's Fair Mystery" series. I have not read the other two books in this series but found that it works quite well as a stand-alone. In fact, this is my first book by this...

  • The Mountain Midwife

    30 March 2016

    The Mountain Midwife by Laurie Alice Eakes is one of the first books I've read by this author, and, I believe, the first contemporary book by this author. I found the concept interesting: combining historical traditions of midwifes with modern-day medicinal...

  • The Wedding Chapel

    01 April 2016

    The Wedding Chapel by Rachel Hauck is, from what I've been able to tell, a sequel of sorts to The Wedding Dress. I have not read the latter and this book worked as a stand-alone for me. I like Rachel Hauck's works because the are unique in the way that...

  • Bonus Review: A Daring Sacrifice

    05 April 2016

    A Daring Sacrifice by Jody Hedlund is the second book in the "An Uncertain Choice" series, but it works as a stand-alone. The series follows the adventures of the Duke's three best knights, first introduced in An Uncertain Choice, and this book specially...

  • Bonus Review: Wonders of Creation

    07 April 2016

    The Wonders of Creation coloring book is published by Zondervan. These intricate designs have become popular, bringing a coloring book trend to adults. I personally have several friends who enjoy coloring while listening to an audio version of the Bible...

  • A Spy's Devotion

    11 April 2016

    A Spy's Devotion by Melanie Dickerson is the first regency romance book by this author, as she usually does fairytale retellings. I've read many, many reviews saying that Melanie Dickerson makes the transition well from fairytale to regency, but I personally...

  • You're the One That I Want

    20 April 2016

    You're the One That I Want by Susan May Warren is the sixth and final book in the "Christiansen Family" series. I've followed this series off and on, reading blog posts about how much others love it. I personally have read the prequel novella, books two...

  • Remember to Forget

    02 May 2016

    Remember to Forget by Ashley Royer is published by Thomas Nelson. As a reviewer, being the same age as the author, I say kudos to her and her success. While I could tell that she wasn't as "polished", if you will, as professional writers, I thought that...

  • Bonus Review: Go Big or Go Home

    03 May 2016

    Go Big or Go Home by Scotty McCreery isn't exactly an autobiography. It's more like what you'd expect if you sat down and talked with Scotty over coffee and had someone type up everything he said. It's the story of his childhood, American Idol ride, faith,...

  • Bonus Review: Unashamed

    10 May 2016

    Unashamed by Christine Caine caught my eye as soon as I saw it in a newsletter I received from the publisher. I have listened to several of Ms. Caine's messages online, and I have consistently been blessed, encouraged, strengthened, and challenged in...

  • Live Free: An Adult Coloring Book

    10 May 2016

    Live Free is an adult coloring book by Margaret Feinberg that is published by Bethany House. I really really like this coloring book because of its specifically targeted verses to meditate on Christ's love for us while we color. The verses are very powerful...

  • The Beautiful Pretender

    20 May 2016

    The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson is the second book in the "Medieval Fairy Tale" series, the first of which was The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, and I liked this one as well. The main characters...

  • Her One and Only

    31 May 2016

    Her One and Only by Becky Wade is the fourth and final book in the "Porter Family" series, and I am SO sorry to see this end! I have loved following this cowboy-Marine Corps family! After three swoon-worthy brothers, I was interested to see this wild...

  • The Family of Jesus

    01 June 2016

    The Family of Jesus by Karen Kingsbury is a unique book. I have not read much from Karen Kingsbury (gasp! I know! My mom and several of my friends have read her works, but for some reason, they usually don't hold my interest), but what I have read from...

  • Backwards Beauty

    10 June 2016

    Backwards Beauty: How to feel ugly in 10 simple steps was written by Jessie Minassian. It was published in 2016 by NavPress in alliance with Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. I was elated to have the opportunity to read and review this book. I loved the...

  • Bonus Review: Mermaid Moon

    15 June 2016

    Mermaid Moon by Colleen Coble is the third book that I've read by this author, but is the second book in the "Sunset Cove". I have not read the first book in this series. Mallory Davis's father died suddenly, and Mallory travels to where he lived to try...

  • Confessions of X

    20 June 2016

    I received Confessions of X by Suzanne M. Wolfe from the Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild. Now I am familiar with the age-old adage to not judge a book by its cover, but I often do so anyway. This was one case where I did judge the book by its...

  • Bonus: From This Moment

    25 June 2016

    From This Moment is the latest stand alone novel by Elizabeth Camden. It's published by Bethany House and was a fascinating read. Elizabeth Camden is one of my favorite authors because I can tell that she puts a lot of research and time into her novels,...

  • No Other Will Do

    01 July 2016

    No Other Will Do is a stand alone novel by Karen Witemeyer, and is published by Bethany House. As usual, this novel is set in the American West in the 1800s, but the characters had their own unique passions. Emma Chandler grew up with her two eccentric,...

  • Counted with the Stars

    02 July 2016

    Counted with the Stars is the debut novel Connilyn Cossette and is the first book in the "Out of Egypt" series, which is published by Bethany House. I was hesitant to give this a try because I haven't been a huge, huge fan of biblical fiction, but this...

  • Forever Safe

    10 July 2016

    Forever Safe by Jody Hedlund is the fourth and final book in the Beacons of Hope series. It is not published by Bethany House, as the rest of the series was, but is instead self-published. This story follows Virginia Cole, the daughter of Henry Cole,...

  • One Paris Summer

    21 July 2016

    One Paris Summer by Denise Grover Swank is a stand alone book published by Blink, a division of Harper Collins publishers. It is the first book that I've read by this author, and I thought it was a decent way to pass the time. Blink publishing is not...
