Charlotte’s Dilemma ~ new release!

Hello, faithful blog readers! Instead of my usual book reviews done for books by other authors, this will be a post about my own novella, due for release on March 6, 2020. This novella came about because of motivation. The motivation was the chance to have my work published in a novella collection with several […]

Review of Dark Ambitions, by Irene Hannon

The exciting Code of Honor trilogy comes to its dramatic conclusion with Hannon’s Dark Ambitions. The thrills and chills are abundant, and if romantic suspense is your thing, you will be very satisfied. Clues and conflict ramp up the tension and excitement. There’s romance between Rick, an ex-military man of high caliber, and Heather who […]

A Veteran’s Heart 3-book romance series, by Irene Onorato

IIt’s my pleasure to remind all my book-loving blog readers about the Veteran’s Heart series. These three books are so delightful, romantic, and interesting, that I wanted to bring them to your attention again. They are loosely connected and can be read alone, but you wouldn’t want to miss any of the fun, so start […]

An Amish Heirloom, a four novella collection, featuring Kelly Irvin

Another Amish Novella collection. This one features short novels loosely linked by the theme of heirlooms–such as a special quilt, a cedar chest, a book, etc.  Kelly Irvin’s contribution was as excellent as ever, and she’s the reason I reviewed this book. As you know, I am not a particular fan or consumer of Amish […]

Vanishing Point, by Lisa Harris

Hang on to your hats, readers! This one’s a nail-biter. You’ll immediately care about the main character, Jordan Lambert, and her love interest, Garrett Addison. They are thrown back together on the trail of a serial killer. This author takes you down into the nitty-gritty of such an investigation. The twists and turns of this […]

Lady Jane Disappears, by Joanna Davidson Politano

Set in 1861 England, this unique book will keep you guessing. This is not your run-of-the-mill story and is quite unusual. Written in the first person, this tale of Aurelie Harcourt’s journey of discovery brings her face to face with deception, rejection, mystery, and a battle to win her rightful place within a family and […]

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

I received this book from Revell Publishing. This is what I consider to be middle grade fantasy. It would have excellent appeal to adult fantasy readers as well. The writing in this debut novel is smooth, clear and engaging. I was impressed by the ease with which the author drew the reader into the story […]

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 […]
