How to Stir a Baker’s Heart

How to Stir a Baker's Heart (Cadence of Acadia, #2)How to Stir a Baker’s Heart by Candice Sue Patterson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you know me or follow my reviews, you know I don’t read many contemporary novels, but I *always* read them if Candice Sue Patterson is the author. And this one didn’t disappoint. Lively, touching, humorous, and heartfelt, this book is an emotional rollercoaster of a ride. You’ll find yourself cheering for both Blake and Olivia as they find their way through that thing we call life. Plenty of reasons to keep turning the pages on this one!

Songbird and the Spy

Songbird and the SpySongbird and the Spy by J’nell Ciesielski
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Romance with a healthy dose of intrigue that will keep you turning the pages. A young American music student is caught behind the lines in occupied France during WWII. Her French relatives try to shield her, but she winds up alone and afraid until a kindly brother and sister take her into their home. They run a local pub, and she sings for her supper–literally. They pass her off as a French girl. When a certain German captain catches her eye, she does everything in her power to avoid him, but he won’t go away. The German captain isn’t what he seems either, and that revelation starts a whole new round of tension, conflict, and danger. A wonderful story by the same author as “Among the Poppies.” Well worth reading!

Summer Plan and Other Disasters

Summer Plans--And Other DisastersSummer Plans–And Other Disasters by Karin Beery
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a fun story! Love the setting (a lighthouse!) and the humor. The characters were engaging and relatable while still having some deep-seated issues they needed to work through. Wonderful debut novel for this author. I’m looking forward to more Karin Beery books!

A Rush of Wings

A Rush of Wings (A Rush of Wings, #1)A Rush of Wings by Kristen Heitzmann
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t read many contemporary novels anymore but this one was recommended to me, and I enjoyed it. It has a nice mix of suspense, mystery, and romance. I connected with the characters pretty well, and the author kept me guessing as to who would shake out with whom, which was fun.

The Blue Ribbon Brides Collection

The Blue Ribbon Brides Collection: 9 Historical Women Win More than a Blue Ribbon at the FairThe Blue Ribbon Brides Collection: 9 Historical Women Win More than a Blue Ribbon at the Fair by Cynthia Hickey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another Barbour collection full of engaging characters and fun stories, these all set during a county or state fair. Having spent a good deal of my growing up years at the county fair, then twenty years as a 4-H leader and 4-Her’s mom, these stories brought back many fond memories. It’s hard to pick any favorites out of this bunch, all of them combine a competitive spirit with the life lessons each character needs to learn. I love that each competition is different, from quilting to baking to farm animals to auto racing … there is something in here for everyone.
