The Refuge

The Refuge by Ann H. Gabhart My rating: 5 of 5 stars I’m a huge fan of Ann Gabhart’s Shaker books. I’ve liked them all. This one, however, might be my favorite.

The Blessed

The Blessed by Ann H. Gabhart My rating: 4 of 5 stars I’ve enjoyed all of Ann Gabhart’s shaker books and couldn’t believe I’d missed one … but I had! So I grabbed a copy and read it in a couple of days. As usual, it was full of the characters who had not alwaysContinue reading “The Blessed”

Murder is No Accident

Murder is No Accident by A.H. Gabhart My rating: 5 of 5 stars Another charming tale from Hidden Springs with all the characters we’ve learned to love from Murder at the Courthouse and Murder Comes by Mail.
