A Perfect Ambition

A Perfect Ambition by Kevin Leman My rating: 4 of 5 stars When I picked “A Powerful Secret” to review, I didn’t realize it was book two of a series. I read the opening chapters and knew I had to back up and read book one. “A Perfect Ambition” is book one. Will Worthington wasContinue reading “A Perfect Ambition”

The Red Door Inn

The Red Door Inn by Liz Johnson My rating: 5 of 5 stars I couldn’t put it down. The story was a roller coaster of emotions. Three hurting people brought together by their individual losses to build a dream. Marie Carrington is hurting and lost when Jack Sloane meets her at the ferry landing. HeContinue reading “The Red Door Inn”

Joshua’s Mission

Joshua’s Mission by Vannetta Chapman My rating: 4 of 5 stars The publisher calls this novel a romance, but it has a lot more in it than the typical romance does. Many of the main characters are Amish, but it’s not your typical Amish book either. I found it very refreshing! Joshua Kline’s younger brotherContinue reading “Joshua’s Mission”

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”

Where She Belongs

Where She Belongs by Johnnie Alexander My rating: 4 of 5 stars What is a contemporary romance that centers on the past? An interesting story! Johnnie Alexander does a wonderful job of combining the present with the past to create a complex and heartwarming tale. Shelby Kincaid is a young widow drawn to her pastContinue reading “Where She Belongs”

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! She picked up where the first book left off and expanded the saga of this Irish family in early 1900s New York.Continue reading “A Worthy Heart”

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”
