Wow, just wow… those are my first thoughts after closing the cover of the second book I’ve read by the amazing Katie Powner. “Where the Blue Sky Begins” is an incredibly powerful story set in a rural little Montana town – a town where, as we quickly discover, it is the perfect place to find answers to the age old question: what are the things in life that truly matter?

I Love Ann Gabhart’s Appalachian Stories!
I adore all of Ann H. Gabhart’s novels that I’ve had the pleasure of reading, but her stories set in the Appalachian mountains are somehow extra-special. “An Appalachian Summer” released from Revell in the summer of 2020, and was a whimsical, romantic novel that carried me away to another time and place, and surrounded me with characters who quickly felt like friends. Continue reading

The first story in this series is “The Spice King”, and what an unforgettable story it is! Continue reading

The Newest Politano Masterpiece
Joanna Davidson Politano’s newest novel is utterly mesmerizing from start to finish – proving once again that when this author tells a story, her readers are in for a captivating journey! “Finding Lady Enderly” was published by Revell in the autumn of 2019, and was highly anticipated by fans of Joanna’s previous two novels.
