Adelle’s Time by Dayna Leigh Cheser

adellestime

Adelle’s Time by Dayna Leigh Cheser was a fun book to read.  I have lately been getting into reading historical fiction books and this one didn’t let me down.  This is the 3rd book in the series and I haven’t read the other two books so I was some what lost during this book in the beginning but that didn’t make me want to stop reading this book.  I really enjoyed the author’s writing and this story so much so that I am going to go back and read the first two books now that I am done with this one.  If you love historical fiction that I would for sure check this one out.

About The Book

Adelle is back!

After a year of recovery from her ill-fated romance with Theo (see Moria’s Time), and thinking about her future, Adelle returns to London, still intent on marrying a duke … with a carefully thought out plan.

First, she needs a companion to help her, and hires Lady Deanna.  Together, they take London’s social elite by storm with the dramatic introduction of Adelle’s alter ego, ‘Lady Mysterious’.  At first it seems Lord Grenfell, and then Lord Hastings, may take the bait, but then, being ‘Lady Mysterious’ proves to be too dangerous.   Realizing the price she’d pay if caught and exposed, she abandons her plan.

Instead, she enlists the aid of her Uncle Sinjin, the Duke of Devonwood, to open doors for her. At Lord Pearson’s ball, the host shuns her, but his son, Walter, finds the American farmer’s daughter entrancing.

Theo, conscripted into the Royal Navy and exiled to Australia, returns to London. Convinced the Grayson family caused his being inducted into the navy, and now a destitute and desperate deserter, he plans his revenge on the Duke of Devonwood and his brother, Adelle’s father.

After jumping ship in Istanbul, the formerly pompous youth, now transformed into a dangerous, hardened man, cons his way home, and stalks the family while learning to use a gun.  Adding burglar and murderer to his resume, he realizes the error of his ways and flees. The family hopes he’s gone for good.

After a double wedding with Moria and Simon, Walter and Adelle, with the support of their families, devote their lives to children—their own, and many London orphans.

Along the way, Adelle learns about love: the love of her family, of Walter, and of many other people in her life.  It changes her in ways she could never have imagined.

“… now there doth remain faith, hope, love – these three;
and the greatest of these is love.”

About The Author

Dayna Leigh Cheser hails from a family of writers; her mother, a non-fiction writer, and her brothers, a newspaperman, and a copywriter.

In school, she often wrote short stories to entertain her classmates, and the occasional teacher who intercepted one. This influenced one English teacher to modify her curriculum to include short story writing.

Term papers prepared Ms. Cheser for the rigors of being an author – the research and writing creativity necessary for a paper gave her a good basis for a writing career upon which to build. She’s found that researching historical facts and people to weave into her stories is an exciting and important part of the process.

While she has many passions, her first love has always been books, which evolved into writing.  Much of her young life was spent in the town library, and her parents despaired her being an under-the-covers-at-night-with-a-flashlight reader.

A casual writer since childhood, it wasn’t until 2002 that she was driven to finally write a book. On a ‘graveyard shift’ shift for eighteen months, she had the time to write for several hours every night. The result was her first book. Today, with three books published and two more in the series due out soon, she’s busy all the time.

Her life before her retirement didn’t allow the time required to be a professional writer.  Since retiring, however, she’s loved the time she now has to write to her heart’s content.

Readers enjoy Ms. Cheser’s books because they are great stories, with by well-developed characters. Not a ‘formula writer’, when she writes, the story is free to progress as it will, then she works with it until it becomes a reality.

Reach For Your Light by Ces Creatively

blog-image-advert-reach-for-your-light-1Reach For Your Light by Ces Creatively was an interesting book to read.  I am still not sure how I really feel about this book but that is okay with me.  I really did enjoy the author’s style of writing but there were times where things almost seemed rushed.  There were times where I got confused because of the supernatural parts of the book but I believe that is because I am not a huge fan of supernatural books but that didn’t make me want to stop reading the book.  Other than those times this was a good book to read and something that I am glad that I read.

When I Fall in Love

About The Book

Hawaii was the last place Grace Christiansen ever imagined she’d vacation, much less fall in love. But when her family surprises her with a cooking retreat in paradise, she is pulled-or maybe yanked-away from her predictable, safe life and thrown headfirst into the adventure of a lifetime.

Max Sharpe may make his living on the ice as a pro hockey player, but he feels most at home in the kitchen. Which is why he lives for the three-week culinary vacation he takes each year in Hawaii. Upon being paired with Grace for a cooking competition, Max finds himself drawn to her passion, confidence, and perseverance. But just when Grace dares to dream of a future beyond her hometown, Max pulls away.

Wrestling with personal demons, Max fights against opening his heart to a love he knows he should never hope for. And as his secrets unfold, Grace is torn between the safe path in front of her and what her heart truly desires. If love means sacrificing her ideal happily ever after, Grace’s faith will face its toughest test yet.

The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron

Book Review GraphicThe Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron was an amazing book.  I do have to say that this book was hard for me to get through at certain parts because of how the story goes but that also is another reason that I loved the book.  I love all books from the WWII time period and this book didn’t let me down at all.  If you are going to read this book be prepared for it have sad parts but I wouldn’t let those parts stop me from reading this book.  It is one that I am going to keep in my collection because I loved it that much.

The Butterfly & the Violin

About The Book

A mysterious painting breathes hope and beauty into the darkest corners of Auschwitz—and the loneliest hearts of Manhattan.

Manhattan art dealer Sera James watched her world crumble at the altar two years ago, and her heart is still fragile. Her desire for distraction reignites a passion for a mysterious portrait she first saw as a young girl—a painting of a young violinist with piercing blue eyes.

In her search for the painting, Sera crosses paths with William Hanover, the grandson of a wealthy California real estate mogul, who may be the key to uncovering the hidden masterpiece. Together, Sera and William slowly unravel the story behind the painting’s subject: Austrian violinist Adele Von Bron.

A darling of the Austrian aristocracy, talented violinist, and daughter to a high-ranking member of the Third Reich, Adele risks everything when she begins smuggling Jews out of Vienna. In a heartbeat, her life of prosperity and privilege dissolves into a world of starvation and barbed wire.

As Sera untangles the secrets behind the painting, she finds beauty in the most unlikely of places: in the grim camps of Auschwitz and in the inner recesses of her own troubled heart.

Deadly Assets by Wendy Tyson

deadly assets buttonDeadly Assets by Wendy Tyson was an amazing book.  I love books like this one and I wasn’t let down to say the least.  From the day I started it I didn’t want to put the book down until I had finished reading it.  I loved everything about this book.  The author did a great job of keeping my attention and making me like all the characters in the book.  The book also kept me wondering what was going to happen next which is always a good thing for me.  There are some books that I know what is going to happen before it happens but this one wasn’t one of them!  If you love mystery/suspense books than this one is for you!

Penny Wise by Dave and Neta Jackson

Book Review Graphic

Penny Wise by Dave and Neta Jackson wasn’t the book for me.  I am not sure why this book didn’t work for me but I just couldn’t get into it to save my life.  I did enjoy the author’s writing and how they told the story but as for the story itself it just wasn’t the story for me.  There really isn’t much more I can say because I really didn’t enjoy this book.

Penny Wise

About The Book

Penny Wiseintroduces us to yet another family in “the neighborhood”—the Jaspers, busy with demanding jobs, busy with church, busy volunteering, parents of three active teenagers, juggling sometimes crazy schedules. All good things. Until all those “good things” feed into a series of crises that affects the whole family. Something’s gotta change!The third in the Windy City Neighbors series, Penny Wise is a contemporary peek at an urban family wrestling with the spiritual and practical challenges of real life. The series employs the innovating storytelling technique of “parallel novels,” each with its own drama and story arc, but whose characters’ lives become intertwined with their neighbors and affect one another. Welcome to Beecham Street—a typical, isolated American neighborhood that is beginning to come out of its shell . . . for better or worse.

Getting By by Claudia Y. Burgoa

Book Review Graphic

Getting By by Claudia Y. Burgoa was a super fun book to read.  There are parts that are 18+ content so I am not going to go into much of the book because I wanted to keep this review family friendly but it was still a great book.  The author does a great job of making you fall in love with the characters and understand where they are coming from.  This is a steamy summer read that I would recommend to anyone who loves romance novels!

About The Book

When Emma Anderson arrived at San Francisco International Airport, she regretted accepting the distinction of being the maid of honor to Gaby’s—her childhood friend—wedding. It had been years since the last time she set foot in Menlo Park, where her parents had been killed. The rug where she had been shoving her feelings since that day looked bumpier than a camel’s hump. Who could blame her; if she hadn’t been selfish they’d still be around. Ever since that fateful day, Emma has been perfecting the knack of Getting By.

Cade’s wedding in Menlo Park—a city close to San Francisco—might be the perfect place for Jake Knight to shake the memories of his ex, Emma Anderson for good. Single, available women galore for an entire week was the perfect medication, one he intended to take three times a day for an entire week to return to his player days. It was a plan the former spy thought flawless until he came face to face with the maid of honor. Jake’s perfect retreat turns into a flight, fight or hide week of celebrations.

The Revealing by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Book Review Graphic

The Revealing by Suzanne Woods Fisher wasn’t the book for me.  I have read the other two books in the series and for some reason this book just didn’t work for me and I am not sure why.  I feel bad for Naomi throughout the book though. I remember towards the end of the 2nd book that I wasn’t super impressed but I had one hard time getting through and finishing this book.  I was glad to get to see the characters again and find out what was going on with them.   I love Amish fiction but this just wasn’t the book for me.  I would still recommend them though because I didn’t really enjoy the first book & most of the 2nd book.

The Revealing

About The Book

Naomi King, soft spoken, loyal, and easily overlooked, has a gift. She sees what others can’t see. Intuition, she calls it. Others in Stoney Ridge don’t know what to make of it and dismiss her hunches and inklings altogether.

When a young woman arrives at the Inn at Eagle Hill with a shocking secret about Tobe Schrock, Naomi fears the worst. She can’t ignore the feeling that something sinister is at work— something more than a threat to the tenuous love begun between her and Tobe.

As signs mount, they begin to point to Jake Hertzler, the elusive mastermind behind Schrock Investments’ downfall. Soon, events spiral hopelessly out of control and Naomi must decide whether to listen to her head or her heart.

In this riveting conclusion to The Inn at Eagle Hill series, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher pulls out all the stops with a fast-paced tale of deception, revelation, and just the right dose of romance.

Suzanne Woods FisherAbout The Author

Suzanne Woods Fisher is the bestselling author of the Inn at Eagle Hill series, Lancaster County Secrets series, and the Stoney Ridge Seasons series, as well as nonfiction books about the Amish, including Amish Peace. She is also the coauthor of a new Amish children’s series, The Adventures of Lily Lapp. Her interest in the Anabaptist cultures can be directly traced to her grandfather, who was raised in the Old Order German Baptist Brethren Church in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Suzanne is a Carol Award winner and a Christy Award finalist. She is a columnist for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazines. She lives in California.

Hidden Under Her Heart by Rachelle Ayala


Book Review Graphic

Hidden Under Her Heart by Rachelle Ayala was a fun book to read.  I realized that I had already read part of this book because it is part of the boxed set called Chance for Love.  Getting this one to review again gave me a reason to finally sit down and finish this book.  I did feel that at times this book was rushed and I couldn’t see things happening that fast in the real world but that didn’t really make me not like this story.  This is a sweet story and I would recommend it to anyone who loves to read books like I do.  I would recommend just buying the box set though and reading all 3 books in the series.

Hidden Under Her Heart

About The Book

Maryanne Torres has sworn off sex. Intent on finding a marrying man, she joins a church youth group. A party at her pastor’s house turns into a drinking binge, and Maryanne is raped.

Lucas Knight’s only concern was winning the Ironman Triathlon until the morning he finds Maryanne unconscious in the church parking lot. He becomes the prime suspect, even though Maryanne cannot identify her attacker.

Maryanne wants justice but the identity of her rapist is hidden in the baby she plans to abort. A trap is set. Lucas races to clear his name and keep Maryanne’s secret from drowning her and her baby.

Four Weddings And A Kiss

Book Review Graphic

Four Weddings and a Kiss was a great book to read.  I love books like this one because it is just a collection of 4 short stories written by different authors.  I love that you get to read 4 different authors stories in one book and have to stories all tie in together at the end.  I read another book like this one before and I loved it just as much as I loved this one.  These stories all have to do with unlikely people falling in love and getting married.  All of these stories made me laugh at points and I was sad when I finished the book because I loved tall the characters and the story lines.
