The End of a Memorable Saga

I have been waiting a long time to finally discover the conclusion to a strange mystery that stretched over three books. . . With the release of the third “Cousins of the Dove” story, I finally received this closure! “My Daughter’s Legacy” was written by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould, and published by Harvest House in the summer of 2017. Continue reading

I Wish It Wasn’t Over! (Guest Review by Hayley)

I didn’t know for certain if the day would ever come.  But it has!  I have finally just finished reading the final installment of the “Serena Jones Mystery” series.  It was another breathless adventure full of questions waiting to be answered and untold dangers.  But more than that, readers will at last find the answer to the biggest mystery of the series:  Tanner or Nate?

My First Supernatural Suspense Adventure. . . (A Guest Review by Hayley)

Supernatural suspense is not my normal genre of reading material. In fact, until now, I’d barely even heard of it. Still, when I read the description for Bethany House’s new release “Invitation”, there was just something I couldn’t resist. It promised thrilling mystery, perilous adventure, and gripping paranormal phenomena. Did it deliver on these promises? Oh yes, and so much more.

The four novellas contained within this book, each one from the minds of four bestselling authors, follow the journeys of a team brought together against all odds. Fighting supernatural darkness that is emerging throughout the world, this unlikely team comes together time and again to bring the power of God into victory, and the demons to their knees. Continue reading

The Most Action-Packed Story of the Series!

I’ve long anticipated the third installment of “The Nikki Boyd Files”, a Romantic Suspense series written by Lisa Harris and published by Revell. Fittingly entitled “Pursued”, this new story is an edge-of-your-seat nail-biter in just as many ways as the previous books in the series (“Vendetta” and “Missing”), but is perhaps even more descriptively violent. Continue reading

I’m Already Anticipating My Next Visit to Cimarron Creek!

It’s been a while since I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed a heartwarming Christian Historical Romance, but I’ve just finished one that definitely fits that description… Although “A Stolen Heart” is the first novel I’ve read by Amanda Cabot, it certainly won’t be my last! Published by Revell in the spring of 2017, this story is the first of the “Cimarron Creek Trilogy”. Without question, this story contains all of the elements that fans of Historical Fiction love and expect, including memorable characters, a western setting, and a heart-melting romance, but with an added dose of mystery and drama woven in as well. Continue reading

What a Story! Don’t Miss “The Illusionist’s Apprentice”!

Wow… just, wow! This was basically my first impression after reaching the end of Kristy Cambron’s newest novel from Thomas Nelson Publishers, entitled “The Illusionist’s Apprentice”. As the second stand-alone story of Ms. Cambron’s “Jazz Age Entertainers” series, this book takes readers on a fascinating journey through the inner workings of 1920s vaudeville entertainment, and the art of illusion – both of which were very unfamiliar to me. With numerous references to the infamous Harry Houdini, and a plot filled with mystery and secrets, this novel is certain to appeal to all fans of Inspirational Historical Fiction. Continue reading

A Beautiful Conclusion to a Fantastic Series – guest review by Hayley

img_0142Oh dear… the time has come. The last book of the “Waves of Freedom” series has finally been released, and what a finale it is. But – that’s just it. It’s the end to a series that truly does proud the Christian fiction genre. While I’ve “patiently” waited for this book ever since reading the previous two in the series, it is heartbreaking to realize that the stories of Jim and Mary, Arch and Lillian, and Dan and Quintessa have come to a finish. But, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and these books were definitely a very good thing. Continue reading

The Newest Heart-Pounding Installment of “Elite Guardians”

moving-target-imageAn island covered with designed-to-kill booby traps. Two people whose past returns to haunt them. And a madman bent on revenge. Doesn’t this sound like a thrilling novel that will suck you in and never release you until the end? “Moving Target” is the third book in Lynette Eason’s “Elite Guardians” series published by Revell, and is truly Romantic Suspense at it’s best. After reading the first two books in the series, I grew very curious about the story behind Quinn and Maddy’s relationship… Well, this book finally reveals all that, and so much more!

The Second Installment to a Fantastic Series!

dali-comps.inddThe second “Serena Jones Mystery” has finally been released to all the patiently waiting fans of “A Fool and His Monet” (book 1 in the series). “Another Day, Another Dali”, written by Sandra Orchard and published by Revell, contains all the charm, wit, and subtle romance of the first book, but is a completely new adventure for Serena and her hilarious band of family, friends, and would-be-suitors. If you enjoy cozy mysteries, comedic romance, and writing that brings each scene to life with clarity, “Serena Jones Mysteries” are the books for you… Continue reading
