Eagle Harbor Series Box Set 1 – 3

Eagle Harbor Series Box Set 1-3: Historical Christian Romance by [Rawlings, Naomi]  Love’s Unfading Light is about Tressa and Mac’s story, both of them feel guilty for something they didn’t do, but they feel responsible for a family members actions and are blamed for it by many of the town citizens. The author really made me feel how these two were being treated and yes, small towns know everyone and always seem to have leaders, good and bad. This book had a very real feel for the town and characters. I enjoyed how Mac treated Tressa and the gentle romance that developed between them..
Love’s Every Whisper is a continuing saga from Eagle Harbor, on the southern shore of stormy Lake Superior! Mystery, suspense, rescues in stormy waters and the quest to protect and win a ladies heart. We know that Elijah knows how to save drowning sailors, but I really enjoyed finding out how he would save Victoria from the biggest mistake of her life! Lots of action and romance too!
Love’s Sure Dawn is the continuing story of Eagle Harbor and the Cummings family. This family has it’s up’s and downs and with faith and love the family became so real. Rebekah and Gilbert certainly went the long way around to see and find what they both really wanted. I love Christian romance, small towns, and historical places that come alive on the page, so I certainly enjoyed Love’s Sure Dawn. I highly recommend all of the Eagle Harbor books & can’t wait for the next one in the series it’s definitely one of my favorite family drama series!


My Heart Belongs in Fort Bliss, Texas

My Heart Belongs in Fort Bliss, Texas by Erica Vetsch   My Heart Belongs in Fort Bliss, Texas: Priscilla’s Reveille
           by Erica Vetsch

I enjoy Historical romance and this is one that grabbed me in the first pages and I did not want to put it down or for it to end. Life in Fort Bliss was hard, interesting and the characters were like family by the end of the book. What a ride! This author packs a lot in between the pages of this book and I certainly will be reading more of her books!


ABOUT THE BOOK:   Introducing a new series of historical romances created for readers who love historical destinations. Journey to Fort Bliss, Texas, where a battle of emotions versus ideals is about to be waged. When a high-steppin’ eastern fashion artist, Priscilla Hutchens, swoops down on the fort to gain custody of her twin niece and nephew she is met with resistance by their uncle, post surgeon Major Elliot Ryder, who thinks he knows what is best for them. Who will win the battle? Or will a truce be called for the sake of love and family?

Mountain Christmas Brides, collection

Mountain Christmas Brides: Nine Historical Novellas Celebrate Faith and Love in the Rocky Mountains   This nine author collection takes place in the late 1800’s and centered around nine couples who find that Christmas was the perfect time to fall in love. I really enjoyed how the stories were connected, yet still a story all of their own. Getting snowed in during a blizzard with a person that can turn it into a romantic start to a relationship, loved it!! These authors know how to make it happen.. I couldn’t pick a favorite because I enjoyed everyone of them!   I requested a copy through NetGalley.

This is a very nice creative coloring book with some simple designs to some with a lot of detail. All but one page is finished with a border that makes your finished project look finished and makes it easy to frame. I’ve used colored pencils and gel pens on these pages and both work nicely. There are blank pages at the back to remove and place under your work to prevent bleed through to the next page. There is even information for some free printable PDF pages. Very nice book for Creative Coloring!4-author-reviews2-jpeg

The Sound of Silver by Rachelle Rea

The Sound of Silver (The Steadfast Love Series Book 2) by [Rea, Rachelle]


ABOUT THE BOOK: The stalwart saint, fighting for faith…and the redeemed rebel, fighting for honor. 

After Dirk rescues Gwyneth from the Iconoclastic Fury, she discovers that faith is sometimes fragile–and hope is not as easy as it may seem. Now truly orphaned yet not alone, Gwyneth continues her quest to learn more about the love of God preached by Protestants she once distrusted.

Dirk’s quest is to prevent his sullied name from staining hers. Will his choice to protect her prove the undoing of her first faltering steps toward a Father God? Once separated, will Dirk and Gwyneth’s searching hearts ever sing the same song?

Rachelle is also the author of The Sound of Diamonds, the first book in the series, and a newlywed! This summer, she married a man with the same first name as the hero of the series!

A Scone to Die For by H.Y. Hannah

a scone to die for

When Gemma opens a quaint Oxfordshire tearoom she would never, even in a dream, expect to find an American tourist murdered with one of her scones! This was a fun read. I certainly smiled a lot when the little old ladies were up to their investigative shenanigans. And Gemma’s mother who was her dedicated matchmaker and always calling her because she could never remember her password for her iPad!  Did I mention the handsome detective? Well, he was an old beau and Gemma found that the spark between them was still there, trouble with a capitol T. When he refuses to let her help him with the case.. She starts investigating on her own and, well, she can sift through clues alright but she can certainly get into quite the sticky situations even better! This is a fun cozy mystery with interesting characters and twists I didn’t see coming. I’d recommend this book and I’m certainly looking forward to the next book in the Oxford Tearoom Mysteries.

Whatever is Lovely by WATERBROOK PRESS

Whatever is Lovely is a Coloring book for reflection and worship. It is published by WATERBROOK PRESS. This is a very nice book. The cover is of a stiff paper with a beautiful touch of color and the pages are filled with scripture, quotes and hymns. The pictures are bold with a nice statement within the coloring page. On the back side of the page you will find what the artist has based the picture on.  I found the pages lovely to color with colored pencils. Very nice smooth paper that my pencil seemed to glide over. I was very pleased with this Coloring book.  If you would like to try a coloring book, I think you would be pleased with this one.

“I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.”

War Room by Chris Fabry

Prayer warriors and prayer chains happen in our family but to actually have a special place to just seek the Lord, what a wonderfully intriguing idea! I found Clara’s secret prayer room, with its walls covered in requests and answers, something I should be thinking about. It certainly was an uplifting book! I know when I started this book the covers drew me in. A compelling drama with humor and heart that explores the power of prayer! I truly enjoyed reading this book and would highly recommend it. I am going back through it and journaling some verses and thoughts that are ones I would like to memorize.
Thank you Tyndale Publishers and The Book Club Network for gifting me a copy to review..
I really enjoyed reading this book and it is now in my favorite books list!

Miracle Drug by Richard L. Mabry

I really enjoyed reading this book. Miracle Drug takes us on a quest to find a cure for an infection that wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did.. So.. When the treatment didn’t take care of it, Dr. Josh Pearson has the task of finding out what it was and why it was happening.. I could see this happening! I liked that the story kept me guessing and there was a little romance, plenty of action and a lot of medical drama that kept me interested. This was my first RL Mabry book and I want to read more of his work!
I was gifted a copy for my opinion from NetGalley and Abington Press, which I have given.

I Hope It’s Not Hereditary by Jedidiah Hartley

What a collection of stranger-than-fiction stories! Jedidiah tell us mostly true stories of his father, Bob Hartley and a few other family members tossed in. Some are funny and some are very hard lessons from living out life. Bob Hartley had a very full range of experiences! A kid skipping church to a bully in school to a drug dealer and then to total turn around and a father and evangelist! I enjoyed how Jedidiah told his dad’s story and yes! Bob Hartley’s life was certainly full of stranger-than-fiction adventures.
I was gifted a copy to review from The Book Club Network.

Clicking on the book will take your to Amazon..
