The King’s Mercy

The King’s Mercy by Lori Benton My rating: 4 of 5 stars I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. The subject matter was all over the place with Scottish Jacobites and Colonial America, slavery and Native Americans. I had a little trouble following it all in the beginning, but once past that, itContinue reading “The King’s Mercy”

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 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.

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”

Lady in the Mist

Lady in the Mist by Laurie Alice Eakes My rating: 4 of 5 stars This book has moldered in my Kindle for years – literally – and I finally opened it. So glad I did!

Legacy Restored

Legacy Restored by Robin Patchen My rating: 5 of 5 stars Classic Robin Patchen! Plenty of unexpected things happen when an ex-con and an artist team up – accidentally – to bring down a murderer. Loved the characters in this one. He’s broody and temperamental, the quintessential artist. She’s independent and insecure, an interesting combination.Continue reading “Legacy Restored”
