Book Review of Yours Truly Thomas, by Rachel Fordham

This was a fun book overall. I couldn’t put it down! I had to find out what happened. And isn’t that what every author wants? Yes, we want to make people keep reading. This took place in D.C., Annapolis, and Iowa — those are some unusual and fresh settings. I liked learning about Dead Letter […]

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 […]

Mommy Needs a Raise, by Sarah Parshall Perry

Oh joy! Here’s another mothering book, jammed with hilarious anecdotes…very well-written.

Because book, after mothering book, seems to be always about […]

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 […]

The Christmas Blessing, by Melody Carlson

A riveting, yet simple story about a young lady whose fiancee is ripped from her on the eve of their wedding. He is called up by his military unit, and must report immediately. But this innocent girl…, wait! I […]

Never Give Up, by John Mason

Happy to review this book. Slim, yet serious and thought-provoking, this gentle confidence-boosting book goes far beyond platitudes. I was blown away from the first page. The author is like a surgeon, with his delicate, subtle probings into the human spirit. Now, some people say I am picky, and that may be true, but this […]
