Wooing Cadie McCaffrey, by Bethany Turner ~ A Book Review

Isn’t that a cute cover? The story has a really cute set-up, too. A couple of single people who work together at a sports network get to know each other and date for four years — hello!? They are Christian people. Now that really makes me wonder why they dated for four years? If they’re […]

“On a Summer Tide” by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Susan here.  Oh, I am so excited to be reading this book! This makes two in a row, of really exceptionally good Christian fiction books. On a Summer Tide, features three sisters. I’m only guessing at this point (haven’t finished it, I’m savoring it) which of the sisters will find her true love in this entertaining […]

Review of “The Refuge” by Ann Gabhart

Susan Karsten here, with a book review! Set mostly within a Shaker (cult) community over a century ago, The Refuge is a wonderful story with a fascinating setting. Gabhart draws readers into the past, and you feel almost as if you are there!  The relatable characters include a widow, who was stranded within the Shaker […]

Pelican Point, by Irene Hannon

Coach Wooden’s Forgotten Teams, by Pat Williams, a review by Susan Karsten

This book is so interesting! If you are inspired by stories of great leadership, this one’s for you. I’ll get it right out there, I am not a fan of basketball at any level. I will politely watch a game if a relative or friend is playing, but otherwise, it’s a no for me, dog. […]

A Borrowed Dream, by Amanda Cabot

By now, my readers know that Amanda Cabot is one of the better active authors in the Christian fiction world. Her stories are engaging and hold up well. This offering by Cabot has a little more of a dark edge than some of her books. You’ll find a character whose father beats the tar out […]

Phoebe’s Light, by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Blogger Susan Karsten here. Richly historical at its base, this novel departs from the norm and ventures into Quaker history, rather than the popular Amish history. Twisting and turning, the plot holds together like a finely woven basket — holding all the elements in near-perfect construction. Page-turningly gripping, yet full of generous helpings of historical […]
