Keeper of The Stars by Robin Lee Hatcher

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from BookLook in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

Keeper of The Stars by Robin Lee Hatcher is the third book in the series.  I am such a sucker for all of the books that I have read by Robin that I hoped that I would love this book as much as I have enjoyed other books by her and I am happy to say that I did enjoy this book.  This is the third book in the series, and I have enjoyed all the books in this series.  I love all of the characters in the books and even though they are all in the same series they are each their story and are so different for each of the other books.  I think that Penny and Trevor are my favorite characters so far from this series of books.  I am a huge fan the setting of this series and just about everything in these books.  They are super easy to read, and I was able to get through the book super quick which I love.  If you love Christian romance novels, then you need to check this one out because it is amazing!

Keeper of The Stars by Robin Lee Hatcher

About The Book

She blames him for her brother’s death. Can she let go of resentment and open her heart to love?

Penny Cartwright found it difficult to understand why her younger brother would choose to join a country singer’s band rather than return to Kings Meadow after college . . . and the separation strained their relationship. Then a car accident made certain her brother could never return.

Trevor Reynolds has chased stardom in Nashville for more than a dozen years, but it remains out of his reach. After an accident kills his young drummer, Trevor goes to Kings Meadow to keep a promise—and perhaps to discover what truly matters in this life.

Thrown together by circumstances, Penny and Trevor must learn to give and receive forgiveness. And if they do, perhaps something beautiful can rise from the ashes of heartbreak.

Last Light by CJ Lyons hooked me right from the start. When it comes to thriller/mystery books, it isn’t hard for me to get sucked in right away. I read this book in a day because I had to know what happened and how it all worked out. This is the fourth book in the series and it is the first book I have read but I didn’t feel lost at all when it came to reading and understanding what was going on in this book. If I had to pick a character that I liked the most from this book, I would pick TK. I loved her attitude throughout the entire book. I loved Lucy but if I had to pick it would pick TK. I just loved everything about her personality and how she gave Lucy a run for her money through parts of the book. If you love thrillers, I know you won’t want to miss this book.

Song Of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

Song Of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti was an okay book just not the right fit for me. I have read several books by Cynthia and I have liked all of them but this book just wasn’t the right fit for me. With that being said it was well written and I the plot but I just couldn’t get into the book. I always feel bad when I can’t get into the book because I hate giving anything less than a raving review but I have to with this book. I know that this book would be great for some people it just wasn’t that one for me. I had a super hard time getting into this book and I was glad when it was over because I was just bored by the end of it.

Song Of Silence by Cynthia Ruchti

About The Book

Lucy and Charlie Tuttle agree on one thing: they’re committed to each other for life. Trouble is, neither of them expected life to look like this. While Charlie retired early, Lucy is devoted to a long-term career . . . until the day she has no choice.
Forced to retire from her position as music educator in a small Midwestern K-8 school, Lucy can only watch helplessly as the program her father started years ago disintegrates before her eyes. As the music fades and a chasm separates her from the passion of her heart, Lucy wonders if her faith’s song has gone silent, too. The musical score of her life seems to be missing all the notes.
When a simple misstep threatens to silence Lucy forever, a young boy and his soundless mother change the way she sees–and hears–everything.

Scar Tissue by MC Domovitch

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from CLP in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are one hundred percent true and my own.

Scar Tissue by MC Domovitch was a book that had me hooked from the first page right up until the end. I loved that this book was an easy read because I have had several books lately that have been hard for me to get through and I love that this book wasn’t like that for me. This book had a larger font in it, and I loved that because at times I can’t read if he font in a book is too small because of how the MS affects my eyes. This book kept me reading because I got so wrapped up in the characters and what was going on with them. I think I loved this book because parts of it have to do with a serial killer, and I love watching and reading things about serial killers. This is the type of book that I will choose if I can pick out a book to read, so I love when I get to review books that I would pick out to read myself. I can’t say enough great things about this book and the author. This is the first book I have read by this author, and I can’t wait to check out other books by her. If you love mystery/thriller books than I know you will like this book just as much as did.
