Still Life, by Dani Pettrey

Hi! Susan with my latest book review: I received this book from a blog program I sometimes review books for. The author, Dani Pettry, crafts a compelling group of characters, a complex storyline, intriguing Baltimore setting, and a very satisfying journey to a thrilling ending. A shocking, layered mystery must be solved before the hero can be […]

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 […]

A Soldier Finds His Way, by Renie Onorato

What delight I had when reading this fine novel. Not only was it riveting and well-crafted, but I had given some early critiques to the author and that made it even more special. When I saw what she had done with it to polish and refine it, I was blown away. It had been very […]

Seasons of the Heart, by Andrea Boeshaar

Wow, was this ever an enjoyable read! I was surprised by how much I loved it. Such unique plots, realistic, yet with just enough of the feel of going on a journey that you couldn’t wait to get back to the story world that Wisconsin author Andrea Boeshaar created within the pages of Seasons of […]

All Summer Long, by Melody Carlson

Hi, Susan here, with another book review ~~ this time Melody Carlson’s latest fiction: All Summer Long. Gentle, romantic, interesting — need I say more? Carlson’s trademark (IMO) is her smooth plotting. Not a lot of suspense, but a lot of good content and relaxing escape. In All Summer Long, you’ll be going along with a […]

The Saddle Maker’s Son, by Kelly Irvin

Susan here, with another review of the latest book from Kelly Irvin. She’s, in my opinion, the best writer of Amish fiction that I have come across. From her unusual plots, to her sensitive and realistic portrayals of the Amish life, Kelly Irvin hits many high notes with her plots, characters, and setting. This time […]

Every Bride Has Her Day, by Janice Thompson

Janice Thompson has quite a following. She writes these hilarious, fun, and satisfying novels, some of which are about the crazy times leading up to a wedding. This one has a fairy-tale aspect in that the groom is a pro basketball star! So, lets’ just start off with the whole fantasy element of that! This […]

Magnolia Duchess, by Beth White

This author just keeps improving. Deftly weaving a total of three romances, this one holds together well, and like all good historical fiction, has the reader painlessly learning. This time, it’s the lead up to the Battle of New Orleans. Hero washes up on beach. Heroine saves his life. Loyalty, faith, love and hope all […]
