One More River to Cross

One More River to Cross by Jane Kirkpatrick My rating: 5 of 5 stars Disclaimer: I love Jane Kirkpatrick’s books! I haven’t read a clunker yet.

New England Citizen Soldiers of the Revolutionary War

New England Citizen Soldiers of the Revolutionary War: Minutemen Mariners by Robert A. Geake My rating: 4 of 5 stars Very good information, a lot of it new to me, about the Patriot militia. I found parts of it a bit hard to follow, however, so I can’t call it an easy read. More –Continue reading “New England Citizen Soldiers of the Revolutionary War”

The Twin Bargain

The Twin Bargain by Lisa Cox Carter My rating: 3 of 5 stars If you like standardized Christian fiction, you’ll love this one. It uses all the catchphrases in Christian fiction today. For me, it used too many of them. But the twin girls in the story are adorable and the hero does the rightContinue reading “The Twin Bargain”

A Rancher to Trust

A Rancher to Trust by Laurel Blount My rating: 5 of 5 stars I don’t read a lot of contemporary romances because my heart lies with the historicals, but I picked up a copy of this one and gave it a try.

Three Little Things by Patti Stockdale My rating: 5 of 5 stars This book gets my #1 Best Cover award. Seriously – look at that cover!

Ross Poldark

Ross Poldark by Winston Graham My rating: 5 of 5 stars Loved it! Such a great way to finish off watching the Masterpiece Theater series. There are differences between the two, most notably, there are many more characters in the book version. And – of course – no matter how Winston Graham described Ross, he’llContinue reading “Ross Poldark”

The Highlanders: A Smitten Historical Romance Collection by J’nell Ciesielski My rating: 5 of 5 stars If you enjoy stories with a Scottish tang, then these four novellas are your next “must read.” Two are set in the old country, and two on America’s shores, but all of them include a Highlander you’ll be sweptContinue reading “The Highlanders”

Misleading Miss Verity

Misleading Miss Verity by Carolyn Miller My rating: 3 of 5 stars I enjoyed a lot about this book. The characters are interesting and believable, the setting is beautifully written, and the writing is good. The ending, however, fell apart for me. That could very well be just a personal preference, so I’m still givingContinue reading “Misleading Miss Verity”

All Manner of Things

All Manner of Things by Susie Finkbeiner My rating: 4 of 5 stars I was given a copy of this book by a friend, so I had no expectations going into it. I haven’t read any books by Susie Finkbeiner before and didn’t even know what genre this was when I opened the cover. (IContinue reading “All Manner of Things”
