The Long-Anticipated Conclusion to the “Dive Team Investigations” series

At long last, the highly anticipated conclusion to Lynn H. Blackburn’s thrilling “Dive Team Investigations” series is available! “One Final Breath” released from Revell in the fall of 2019 and is a dramatic conclusion to one of my favorite Romantic Suspense sagas. If you enjoy this genre, I definitely recommend reading the talented Ms. Blackburn’s new release. However, I do suggest reading the two previous “Dive Team Investigations” first, in order to completely appreciate the depth of characterization and storytelling that is present. Continue reading

Elizabeth Camden Has Outdone Herself On This One!

Bethany House Publishers have released some fabulous works of fiction in the last few months, but I have to say that none quite compare to the novel I just finished reading… Who wrote this new masterpiece, you ask? It probably won’t come as a surprise to discover that it was the acclaimed Elizabeth Camden, who has begun a brand-new series entitled “Hope and Glory”. The first story in this series is “The Spice King”, and what an unforgettable story it is! Continue reading

The Perfect Way to Start Your Day

Susie Larson is an author I greatly respect, and whenever a new book releases with her name on it I quickly try and add it to my reading list. Her newest volume from Bethany House Publishers is entitled “Blessings for the Soul: Words of Grace and Peace for Your Heart”. This lovely little book is packaged as a floral hardcover with a ribbon bookmark and thick pages that are printed with botanic designs – but the true merit comes from the words on the pages. . .

Not My Favorite From Angela Hunt

Bestselling author Angela Hunt is renowned for her fascinating and insightful novels set in biblical eras. Her stories bring this period in history to life, and allow readers to feel as thought they are actually visiting the times and places and people of the Bible. Her newest release from Bethany House is the last installment of “The Silent Years” series, (set during the years between the Old Testament and the New Testament) and is entitled “King’s Shadow: A Novel of King Herod’s Court”. While still fascinating in its own way, it didn’t quite live up to my expectations of an Angela Hunt novel… Continue reading

This Story Will Leave You Breathless…

As you may know I do not often read science fiction or fantasy novels, but something about the new release by a bestselling father-daughter author duo really caught my attention. “The Girl Behind the Red Rope” is the first collaboration by Ted Dekker and Rachelle Dekker and was published by Revell in 2019. Let’s just say – I am SO glad I read this novel! Continue reading

Fascinating Historical Details Once Again From Judith Miller

You can always count on acclaimed author Judith Miller to bring a fascinating, little-known snippet of history to life and create a unique story around it! “A Perfect Silhouette” is a shining example, as the historical art of Scherenschnitte, a German word for paper cutting in the shape of a silhouette, comes to life as our heroine’s hidden talent. Published by Bethany House in the fall of 2019, this Christian Historical novel is certain to please many fans of the genre. Continue reading

Acclaimed author Tracie Peterson has released yet another new title for her readers to enjoy.  “Wherever You Go” is the second in her newest series, Brookstone Brides, and features a character we already know from the first one, Mary Reichert, as well as a newcomer Chris Williams. Continue reading

Simply a Sweet Historical Romance

Last summer I was blown away by the storytelling abilities of debut author Rachel Fordham, as her book “The Hope of Azure Springs” was a delightful historical romance that captivated me from the first page. This summer her second novel was released from Revell, and is just as sweet and memorable as the first. Continuing in the setting of Azure Springs, “Yours Truly, Thomas” introduces new protagonists while continuing the stories of all the secondary characters we grew to love in the last book. Continue reading

A Captivating First Story in “The Codebreakers” Series – Guest Review by Hayley

I absolutely loved Roseanna White’s “Shadows over England” series.  Therefore, when I realized “The Codebreakers” series was connected, I was thrilled!  Not only does “Number of Love” feature a young lady we already know and love from the previous series named Margot De Wilde, but it also gives us a glimpse into the lives of many of the other characters we came to love. Continue reading
