Review of: Sandpiper Cove, by Irene Hannon

Here’s another enjoyable, well-written offering from one of my personal favorite contemporary romance writers. At first, I was wondering, “How are these two going to end up together?” But, Hannon resolved my wonderings, with her finely-crafted characters, gripping (but not nerve-wracking) plot twists, and a sprinkling of conflicts and impediments. All wrapped in a setting […]

Hope for the Same-sex Attracted, by Ron Citlau

The author of this book has walked in the shoes he writes about. I believe he re-frames the debate in some ways, and sheds new light on a path forward for people who want wholeness. No easy solutions, but much food for thought, and excellent adherence to Biblical truths, without dampening hope. A few personal […]

A Stolen Heart, by Amanda Cabot

Amanda Cabot is one of Christian fiction’s most reliable authors. She pens contemporary romances as well as historical romances. I’ve enjoyed them all. This latest offering, set in 1880 Texas, is a very sweet romance–appropriate for a story featuring a heroine who makes candy and runs a candy store for a living. Learn a little […]

Still Life, by Dani Pettrey

A shocking, layered mystery must be solved before the hero can be […]

An Uncommon Courtship, by Kristi Ann Hunter ~ my latest book review

The premise of Hunter’s new book is quite original. In the Regency genre, close to 100% of the plots have a marriage at the end of the book. In An Uncommon Courtship, the wedding comes first. About the only typical Regency plot device found is the compromising of the heroine, and actions taken to prevent […]

Feta & Freeways, Susan Baganz’s Latest Contemporary Romance

Let me tell you…this one grabs you and won’t let go! I am blogging about this book for a writer friend, but I thoroughly enjoyed this one on its own merits — just thankful she gave me a copy for the blog so I could read it. Baganz’s touch with romance is so deft, so […]
