An Exceptional Story – Guest Review by Hayley


If you enjoyed Nicole Deese’s previous release “All That Really Matters,” then you will be excited for her new release “All That It Takes.”  This book brings secondary characters from the last book into the spotlight for their own story.  Continue reading

So Much More Than A Pretty Cover

I had never before read a novel by Christina Suzann Nelson, so when I picked up her new released entitled “Shaped By The Waves” I really wasn’t sure what to expect.  I knew it was contemporary fiction about a girl going back to her hometown, and the cover was lovely with the ocean and seagulls gracing the eye-catching paperback… But that was about it!  Boy, was I in for a surprise. Continue reading

Just A Bit Too Familiar…

I love a good princess story as much as the next girl – and when the said princess story is also a Christian Romance published by Bethany House, then you can bet that I won’t pass that one by!  In Search of a Prince” was written by Toni Shiloh, a new-to-me author with plenty of talent and potential. Continue reading

One Last Visit to Heritage, Michigan

I’ve followed the story of “Restoring Heritage” since the beginning, and have spent numerous pleasant afternoons in this little town, revisiting all the locals.  Since You’ve Been Gone” is the third book in what I assume is a trilogy(?) by Tari Faris, and it was lovely to meet a couple new characters and watch their stories both unfold afresh and tie in with the previous developments in the first two books.  An unexpected secondary romance is also featured, and will prove rather shocking as it illustrates that people really can change for the better when they accept God into their loves.

A Perfect End-Of-Summer Visit to PEI

What better way to end the summer than with a trip to Prince Edward Island?  I don’t mean literally, (though that would be nice!) but with Liz Johnson as our imagination’s guide, we can once again visit The Island in her new series from Revell entitled “Prince Edward Island Shores”.   Continue reading

I Don’t Want It To Be Over!

Becky Wade has become a must-read author for me – each time she releases something new, it quickly goes to the very top of my reading list!  “Let It Be Me” is the second book in the “Misty River Romance” series, and it was the best contemporary romance I’ve read in a long while. . .  Published by Bethany House during the hot days of summer 2021, this book captivated me from start to finish, and was a balm for my heart as I relished each page of these two memorable characters’ stories.   Continue reading

A Truly Great Story – guest review by Hayley

All That Really Matters” is a book I have anticipated ever since Nicole Deese’s previous release.  After her last book rose to be among the top titles of my favourites list, (and still remains there to this day) I couldn’t wait for this one.  And although I know you “can’t judge a book by it’s cover”, I just have to say that the cover of this book is SO stunning!

I would describe this book as… sparkly, much like it’s heroine!  Not because it is light and fluffy – it’s not.  More because of the sparkling talent that this author clearly has for storytelling, creating amazingly life-like characters, and using very unique storylines.  I can honestly say I have never read a book that had even a similar storyline to this one. Continue reading

Wow, The “Heirloom Secrets” Series Just Keeps Getting Better!

Wow, was this ever a humdinger of a sequel in the “Heirloom Secrets” series!  “Paint and Nectar” is the second book I’ve read by the incredibly talented Ashley Clark, (the first was “The Dress Shop on King Street”) and it completely blew me away.  This author manages to create poetry out of prose, and inspire readers with the themes of hope found in beauty, and the importance of preserving the past even as we move forward in the present.
