Return to the Charming Town of Heritage!

I was so excited to see a new addition in the “Restoring Heritage” series from Revell Publishers, written by the talented Tari Faris! I read “You Belong With Me” several months ago, and was looking forward to discovering what would happen next in the town of Heritage. “Until I Met You” is actually several stories in one: the continuing story of Luke and Hannah (from the previous book) plus two new romances – Libby and Austin, and Nate and Olivia.

Another Stellar Story from Jennifer Delamere!

Hurray! A new series by Jennifer Delamere begins! “Line by Line” is the first book in her “Love Along the Wires” series, and I adored each page of this delightful Christian Historical novel from Bethany House. Set in London in 1880, this is a story that is compelling, witty, and sweetly romantic – with plenty of unexpected twists to keep readers guessing along the way.

At first I thought “Line by Line” was going to be a feministic story filled with the movement for women’s rights and independence, and all the things that go along with that. (That’s not to say this is a bad thing, but I don’t generally care for stories that lean too much towards the “women don’t need men at all” mindset). Anyways, this wasn’t ultimately the case in this story, Continue reading

Another Unforgettable Release In Elizabeth Camden’s “Hope And Glory” Series

I have been excitedly awaiting the release of “A Gilded Lady” ever since I finished “The Spice King” (the first book in Elizabeth Camden’s “Hope and Glory” series). It was everything I hoped for and more! I can’t wait for Bethany House to release the third and final installment in the series – I’m hoping it’s sooner than later. . . Continue reading

A Fabulous Start to the “Misty River Romance” Series

One element that all of Becky Wade’s stories have in common is that I simply never want them to end! “Stay With Me” is her newest release, and the first book in the “Misty River Romance” series from Bethany House Publishers. As soon as I opened to chapter one, I was swept away by this captivating drama filled with vibrant characters and an absorbing storyline. Truly, Becky Wade can write a novel like no other – she is a master of her craft! Continue reading

An Entertaining Continuation in the “Brides of Hope Mountain” series

Bethany House Publishers and author Mary Connealy just released the second book in her current series, “Brides of Hope Mountain”. “Woman of Sunlight” narrates the story of the youngest of three sisters who lived in complete isolation on the side of a mountain, until a ranching family changed their lives forever. When a gunfight occurs not far from their beloved home, with the target being one of their own, this flung-together-family realizes that their lives are about to change once again, and in ways they never could have predicted.

A Powerful Beginning to Jocelyn Green’s New Series

Jocelyn Green always leaves me in awe when I finish one of her books. With masterful prose, she manages to bring history to life in ways that make me feel as though I am living alongside her characters from the past, feeling every emotion and witnessing every event just as they do. “Veiled in Smoke”, her new release from Bethany House Publishers, is the first story in “The Windy City Saga”. This dramatic novel brings the tragic event of Chicago’s Great Fire of 1871 to vivid existence in our imagination, following two sisters as they experience the fire – and it’s aftereffects – firsthand. Continue reading

Fantastic New Suspense Novel

Don’t you love it when you decide to try a new novel by a new author, and it ends up becoming your new favorite? That is exactly what happened to me when I read “Collision of Lies” written by Tom Threadgill and published by Revell early in 2020. With a fast pace, elements of humor, and a plot that will keep you riveted until the end, it was one of the most enjoyable Christian Suspense novels I’ve read in a long time. Continue reading

The Best Book in the “Haven Manor” Series (and that’s saying a lot!)

I adore Kristi Ann Hunter’s stories, and her newest novel may be my favorite yet! “A Pursuit of Home” is the final installment in the “Haven Manor” series, but it is also very closely related to the “Hawthorne House” books (Ms Hunter’s first series). This means in a single novel she not only concludes an already-unforgettable series, but she ties both of her series together in a way that feels perfect and natural. Now that is talent! Continue reading

A Captivating Start to a New Wilderness Series

“When Strangers Intrude on Three Wild Sisters’ Hidden Mountain Life, Their World Will Never Be the Same.”

You can always count on Mary Connealy for an entertaining story filled with unique characters caught up in a captivating (and slightly unlikely!) adventure – and her new series fulfills these expectations perfectly. Continue reading

A Unique and Lyrical Historical Novel

“As a long-standing feud threatens to spark once more, the fates of two families rest on the most unexpected of shoulders”. With these words, I was immediately intrigued! “When Silence Sings” is the first novel I’ve read by Sarah Loudin Thomas, and I definitely enjoyed my journey-through-words back in time to 1930, and the hills of West Virginia. Although the residents of these backwoods communities may not know it, long-held secrets are about to be revealed, and the lies behind decades-old feuds are about to be unearthed. Continue reading
