The Words Between Us

The Words Between Us by Erin Bartels My rating: 3 of 5 stars I liked this book better than the author’s debut. It’s women’s fiction, told from one person’s point of view, and hops back and forth between the person’s past and present. It’s interesting and the author handles the transitions well, so it’s easyContinue reading “The Words Between Us”

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”

Practically Married

Practically Married by Karin Beery My rating: 5 of 5 stars I loved this book! It’s a modern marriage of convenience story that works because the characters are engaging, practical, and have their personal issues to deal with. Loved the setting of Northern Michigan – of course! – but part of the story was setContinue reading “Practically Married”

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”

The Witness Tree

The Witness Tree by Denise Weimer My rating: 5 of 5 stars A fascinating and engaging story about a historic time and place that isn’t often showcased in fiction. I was captivated by the characters from the very start. The lifestyle of the Moravians is something I knew just a little about. Their interaction withContinue reading “The Witness Tree”

The Cowboys

The Cowboys by Jennifer Uhlarik My rating: 5 of 5 stars What’s better than a book with a handsome cowboy for the hero? A collection of four stories with four handsome cowboy heroes! These stories will tug at your heart and give you a chuckle before leaving you with that satisfied *awww…* ending. Most importantlyContinue reading “The Cowboys”

The Brightest Hope

The Brightest Hope by Naomi Dawn Musch My rating: 5 of 5 stars I wasn’t sure how the author was going to take the “bad boy” of book #2 and make him the hero of book #3 … but she nailed it! What a great end to this trilogy. Two emotionally wounded people who areContinue reading “The Brightest Hope”

Legacy Rejected

Legacy Rejected by Robin Patchen My rating: 5 of 5 stars Another wonderful adventure in Nutfield from author Robin Patchen. As always, her characters are engaging and quirky, the setting is *the* small town we all wished we lived in, and there are parts of the story that keep you guessing. While it’s fun toContinue reading “Legacy Rejected”
