Book number 2 in the “Prince Edward Island Shores” series is one of the novels I was most anticipating this summer, because a visit to the Island (even a fictitious visit) is always a welcome retreat! “The Last Way Home” is Liz Johnson’s sequel to “Beyond the Tides”, and tells the story of two characters we were just briefly introduced to – but who now share a whole plethora of history, secrets, and surprises with us.

The Sky King Ranch Adventure Continues!
You know how some series of books have plots that are so closely connected in time, the wait between their publications seems interminable? Susan May Warren’s “Sky King Ranch” series is very much written this way – after reading “Sunrise” several months ago, the countdown was on until “Sunburst” finally released from Revell. Now that I’ve devoured this one, I’m waiting (im)patiently for “Sundown” to be released later this fall! Continue reading
Hope Harbor – My Springtime Tradition!
Springtime just would not be complete without a visit to Hope Harbor, would it? Taking time to spend a few days in Irene Hannon’s picturesque little seaside town, “where hearts heal. . . and love blooms”, has become an annual tradition for me and I’m sure many readers around the world. Believe it or not, “Sea Glass Cottage” is the eighth book in the series – and Ms Hannon promises there are at least three more stories to come (and hopefully many more!). Continue reading
A Rich, Thoughtful, and Intriguing Tale
Kate Breslin’s sweeping new wartime novel will whisk you away to Scotland, 1918. Here the shocking drama of one young woman’s desperate attempt at a new beginning collides with a murderous plot to destroy the lives of many, and alter the course of the war. “As Dawn Breaks” was published by Bethany House late in 2021, and is a not-to-be-missed release by any fans of Ms. Breslin’ previous work, or readers who love masterfully-crafted historical novels.

A New Destination and Adventure In The American Wonders Collection!
In book #3 of the “American Wonders Collection”, Regina Scott takes us to another historically unique setting where a courageous woman takes a stand and faces seemingly insurmountable odds. This is the very basic synopsis for each of the three books in the series, but in all other aspects of story and characterization, each one is different and special in its own way. In “A View Most Glorious” we go back in time to 1893 and journey alongside Coraline Baxter as she becomes one of the first women to climb Mount Ranier in the state of Washington, in the hopes of raising awareness for the suffragette cause and gaining women the right to vote. Continue reading
This Story Drove Me Crazy! (In A Good Way)
What an unexpected, almost bizarre (in a good way) story this turned out to be! “Crossed Lines” is the second book in the “Love Along the Wires” series by Jennifer Delamere, and features a plot that completely took me by surprise in so many ways. Continue reading

It’s Time For Our Yearly Visit to Hope Harbor!
It’s that time of year again, when author Irene Hannon takes us all to the place we wish we could live (or at least visit!) and surrounds us with friends both old and new. The tales from Hope Harbor continue in her newest story from Revell Publishers entitled “Blackberry Beach”, where a soul-searching actress and a lonely coffee shop owner discover the magic of this special spot on the Oregon coast.Continue reading
Jody Hedlund Opens Her New “Colorado Cowboys” Series With A Bang!
Although it’s a little out of the ordinary from her typical setting and style, after reading Jody Hedlund’s newest release from Bethany House I would never guess that faith-based western romances aren’t her primary genre! “A Cowboy For Keeps” is the first book in her new “Colorado Cowboys” series, and is a must-read for fans of Christian Historical Fiction, particularly Westerns. (Basically, if you enjoy authors such as Karen Witemeyer, this story will be right at home on your shelf!) Continue reading

In “Endless Mercy” the youngest Powell sister tells her story as her dreams for a famous future collide with the tumultuous days of her past and present. Continue reading
