Hurt Road by Mark Lee (a review)

This memoir by a contemporary Christian musician from the group known as Third Day will be interesting to you if you are a fan of that group. Maybe you’ve even heard of Mark Lee? His life experiences form the bulk of the tale. His major, devastating accident when he was still a schoolboy, his father’s […]

An Inconvenient Beauty, Kristi Ann Hunter

Wow, Kristi Hunter just keeps writing these Regency novels — she might bring the genre back singlehanded! Kristi Hunter scores again with her fourth Regency novel. The opening scenes, set in a private English boys’ school is well done, and sets the tone for frolics to come. Meeting our hero as a boy, we gain […]

The Day the Angels Fell, Shawn Smucker

Hope for the Same-sex Attracted, by Ron Citlau

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 […]

Redeeming Grace, by Jill Eileen Smith

My latest book review: The latest of twelve biblical fiction novels by this author, she certainly has a way of bringing Bible days to life. In fact, her creative characters practically jump off the page, they are so real. In Redeeming Grace, we join Naomi who is a practicing midwife, before she leaves Israel for […]

Time Search, by Danele Rotharmel

Review by: Susan Karsten Time Search, the third book in the Time Counselor Chronicles, is a much-anticipated addition to what is stacking up to be a rousing, excellent adventure series. Beginning with some beloved characters from the first two books appearing in the new, third volume of the Chronicles, the story quickly ramps up with […]
