Hannah’s Choice

Hannah’s Choice by Jan Drexler My rating: 5 of 5 stars I love a story that keeps me guessing – and this one does! Jan Drexler paints a very tranquil setting in 1840s Pennsylvania, with creeks and farms and orchards. What could go wrong in such a place? Human tragedy and human choices, that’s what.Continue reading “Hannah’s Choice”

Merchant of Alyss

Merchant of Alyss by Thomas Locke My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is the second book in the “Legends of the Realm” series by Thomas Locke. The first one – “The Emissary” – came out over a year ago. I wish I had re-read that book before reading this one. As is the caseContinue reading “Merchant of Alyss”

Thin Ice

Thin Ice by Irene Hannon My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book was different than most of my reads. The underlying romance is wonderful. Just the type of hero who grabs your imagination. Just the type of heroine who grabs your sympathy. The suspense in the story is page-turning, no doubt. Christy Reed hasContinue reading “Thin Ice”

A Worthy Heart

A Worthy Heart by Susan Anne Mason My rating: 5 of 5 stars I’d been anticipating this book since finishing the first in the series, Irish Meadows. Susan Anne Mason did not disappoint!

Killing Reagan

Killing Reagan: The Violent Assault That Changed a Presidency by Bill O’Reilly My rating: 2 of 5 stars I was disappointed in this book. Perhaps because I’ve read several biographies on Ronald Reagan, or perhaps because I’d read O’Reilly’s “Killing Jesus” and thought it was an interesting and well laid out book. This one wasContinue reading “Killing Reagan”

A Thousand Shall Fall by Andrea Boeshaar My rating: 4 of 5 stars I love a good Civil War series and the Shenandoah Valley Saga caught my eye.

The Frontiersman’s Daughter

The Frontiersman’s Daughter by Laura Frantz My rating: 5 of 5 stars I need to have some serious words with Laura Frantz. She’s making me lose a lot of sleep! Too many of her books keep me up past my bedtime and this was one of them. Lael Click was best known as her father’sContinue reading “The Frontiersman’s Daughter”
