Mommy Needs a Raise, by Sarah Parshall Perry

Oh joy! Here’s another mothering book, jammed with hilarious anecdotes…very well-written. It amazes me how many moms must really struggle with what other people do, what other mothers think, what people think of them, etc. Many moms must set their own standards impossibly and unrealistically high. Because book, after mothering book, seems to be always about […]

Rescue Me, by Susan May Warren

Susan Karsten here, with my latest review. I’m always up for checking out the latest from Susan May Warren. Her books are well written and enjoyable. Imagine my delight when I discovered Rescue Me…I absolutely love novels with survival plot lines, and this one’s a humdinger. Okay let’s start, though, with the storyline where two […]

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

The Secrets of Wishtide, by Kate Saunders

This was a book that I liked so much that I quick went to see if she’d written others with this fascinating set of characters. No, this is a debut of a series. Boo-hoo. I will have to wait for more from this author. So, so, so, so good. All my reading friends, rush out […]

A Heart Most Certain, by Melissa Jagears

Susan here, with another book review for all you Christian fiction fans. I found this one to be quite enjoyable, with a unique story line. Set in 1905 Kansas, this one has an authentic historic feel to it.  As I read along, I could sense the distinctive era seeping off the page in a delightful, […]

The Christmas Angel Project, by Melody Carlson

One of my favorite authors in Inspirational Fiction, Melody Carlson once again delivers a strong novel for our enjoyment. An ensemble piece, she brings together four women, each an interesting character in her own right. The women have in common that they were in the same book club. The leader has died, and now they […]
