Written On Her Heart by Paige Rion

Book Review

Written On Her Heart by Paige Rion was a fun book to read.  There are parts of this book that I didn’t  enjoy but that is because I tend to get bored when you have love triangles going on.  I have to say that I didn’t like Peter from the first time you meet him right up until the end.  All the drama in this book kept me wanting to read but it also at times got old and I found myself just skimming the pages until the drama past.  I can’t wait to read the other books in this series.  If you love new adult novels than I am sure you will love this one.  If you have read it what do you think of it?

About The Book

Andi Callaway has dreamed of becoming a published author her entire life.

Ford Delaney has always wanted nothing more than to escape his past.

An opportunity of a lifetime. This is what Andi finds when she returns home to Callaway Cove on summer break. A chance to work for her literary idol Ford Delaney is up for grabs, and she’s willing to risk everything–her boyfriend, her best friends, and her education–to get it.

She’s positive this will be the key to reaching her dreams. But the moment she begins working for the reclusive author, Andi realizes there’s more to him than just a name. As attraction builds between Andi and Ford, she begins to discover consequences must come hand-in-hand with something great–which could loosen control over her tightly wound life. And once romantic sparks fly, Andi’s other relationships start to crumble, Ford’s fame comes back to haunt him, and the heat they generate will either forge a powerful, enduring love or threaten everything she holds dear.

In this romance, Rion delivers drama and sexual tension without graphic love scenes. Written On Her Heart will delight romance fans of new adult, young adult, and contemporary romance readers, alike.

How To Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck

Book Review

How To Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck is the third book in this series and I loved it just like I loved the first 2.  If you didn’t catch my reviews of them you can click here and here to read them.  This are like modern fairy tales and I love that about the books.  I wasn’t a huge fan of Prince Stephen through most of the book because he struck me as coward but in the end he redeems himself.  I loved Corina from the very first page right through the end of the book.  Now this book is the third in the series but you don’t have to have read the other two to know what is going on in this book.  I love all the stories of these books and if you love contemporary fiction and/or romance books than I know you will love this book!

Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom is a former Royal Air Command lieutenant turned star rugby player, trying to make sense of his life after the devastation of war.
When his brother, King Nathaniel, discovers Stephen’s pre war secret, he must deal with an aspect of his life he longed to forget. But how can he do so without exposing the truth and breaching national security?

Or let it be lost forever?

A Hearts Disguise by Colleen Coble

Book Review

A Hearts Disguise by Colleen Coble was a super cute story.  I love that this book was short because I was able to read the whole book in about an hour or so and that is perfect for me lately.  This is the first  book in the series and I can’t wait for the rest of books to come out because this book kind of left me hanging and I hate when books do that.  Now that being said it left me wanting to read the next book because I have to know what happens next to the characters in the book.  I also love that this won’t be the last time that I see these characters because I did fall in love with them and I have to know what happens next to each of them.  If you love historical fiction than I would for sure recommend this book to you.

A Heart's Disguise

But Ben Croftner does not take rejection lightly—and a single woman with a sick father makes an easy target. When Sarah is abducted by her treacherous fiancé, Rand finally comes to her aid . . . only to reveal that he has been posted at Fort Laramie, Wyoming, and intends to take her there as his wife.

The Promise of Palm Grove by Shelley Shepard Gray

Book Review

The Promise of Palm Grove by Shelley Shepard Gray was an amazing book.  I have read several books by this author and I have loved all of them.  I have become a huge fan of Amish fiction and in my opinion Shelley writes the best books for this genre.  I loved this book because it was a nice change from some of other books I have read before.  I loved all of the characters in this book and it has made me want to go and visit Pinecraft because I want to experience what it would be like.  Even though I know that this is a fiction book I still would love to experience the place where this story takes place.  If you love Amish fiction than this is one that you have to read.

The Promise of Palm Grove

About The Book

The Promise of Palm Grove (Avon Inspire, January 2015)

Leona must decide: Does she follow the path set out before her? Or take a chance with only the promise of what could be to guide her?

A young Amish woman finds herself torn between the man she’s pledged to wed and the man her heart desires in this heartwarming story of chance, duty, and choice in the face of love—the first volume in the beloved New York Times bestselling author’s new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series.

Amish bride-to-be Leona is thrilled to be in Florida, on a mini-vacation in the pretty town of Pinecraft. Her girlfriends think she’s happy because she’s away from the stress of wedding planning. They have no idea that Leona’s real joy is in being away from her fiancé.

Edmund is a good man, and will make a decent husband . . . just not for Leona. The more time she spends with him and his overbearing ways, the less she wants to be his wife. Her cousins are sure Edmund is the right man for her—and their certainty makes Leona begin to doubt herself. But when a chance encounter with a wayward cat brings her face-to-face with a handsome, fun-loving Amish man named Zachary Kauffman, Leona’s faced with two vastly different futures.

A Life of the Twentieth Century​ by Irene Even

iRead Book Tour Logo Medium

A Life of the Twentieth Century​ by Irene Even was a great book.  I loved most of things about this book and I love that even though it is a fiction book it is based on Irene’s life.  Oh and the best part for me is that part of it takes place during WWII which everyone should know by now is my favorite time period.  I also loved seeing what is was like growing up in europe and the things that she went through throughout her life.   There were times for me where the amount of detail that was used bogged me down and I found I couldn’t focus on the story because of all the details that were used but even though those times I still didn’t want to stop reading because I wanted to know what was going to happen next to her.  If you love historical fiction books than I would for sure recommend this book to you.  It was also made better because it is based on her life so you know that the things she went through really happened.

A Life of the Twentieth Century3 (220x340)

About The Book

A Life of the Twentieth Century is the story of Aya, who lived through the loss of her parents before the age of 3. At the age of twelve she was sent to a boarding school in Budapest, that closed after one year, because the Nazi army marched into the city.

Aya was left totally alone to face the Nazi occupation, and to experience all the horrors of the war. She faced many life threatening situations, such as prison, bombardment or even the possibility of being executed on the spot, without really comprehending the gravity of it all.

The end of the war was supposed to mean liberation, the return of hope and freedom for most people, however it didn’t happen for Aya, who was part of a youth group on her way to Palestine. The destination of this youth group was to reach Italy and the Jewish Brigade. They crossed the Alps on foot from Austria to reach Italy.

As they reached their destination Aya met a soldier from the Jewish Brigade, who was supposed to be her Hero, her Saviour, but turned out to be the devil incarnate. From day one, this soldier of the Jewish brigade took control of Aya’s life when she was only 15 years old.

After divorce, destitute and once again alone, she had no direction and almost no hope, when from deep inside her a small voice said; go back to school. It took all her courage to apply to university, where she was accepted and after 5 year was granted a B.A. and a Diploma of Teaching. She spent the rest of her life teaching, and as she contemplated her life she said to herself that if she had had all the choices in the world, she would have chosen teaching.

Twisted Innocence by Terri Blackstock

Book Review

Twisted Innocence by Terri Blackstock was a great book.  This is the third book in this series and I loved it to say the least.  Just because it is the 3rd book you don’t have to read the first 2 in order to understand this book.  I have never read the first book and I have been able to figure out what is going on and fall in love with the books.  I love all the twists and turns that this series takes and how it kept me wondering what was going to happen.  If you love mysteries than this is the book for you.

Twisted Innocence

About The Book

Twisted Innocence (Zondervan, February 2015)

Holly Cramer’s past choices have finally caught up to her, but she never expected them to endanger her baby.

Though Holly’s stumbled through most of her adult life as a party girl, she longs to live a more stable life for her daughter. Then police show up to question her about the whereabouts of Creed Kershaw, Lily’s father. She has kept his identity a secret from friends and family—she never even told him about the pregnancy. Now he’s a person of interest in a drug-related murder case.

Determined to keep him out of their lives and turn him over to police, Holly uses her private investigating skills to search for him. But her bravado backfires when he turns the tables and takes her and the baby hostage. As desperate hours tick by, Holly realizes his connection to Leonard Miller-the man who has gunned down several members of her family. Creed claims he’s innocent and that Miller is after him too. His gentleness with Lily moves her, but she can’t trust a man who has held her at gunpoint . . . even if he reminds her so much of herself.

Dangers old and new threaten Holly and her baby, and lives are demanded as sacrifices for love. Through a complex web of mistakes and regret, redemption is the one hope Holly has left to hold on to.

Betting on Hope by Debra Clopton

Book Review

Betting on Hope by Debra Clopton was a good book to read.  I really liked Tru from the start of the book right up until the end of the book.  Maggie on the other hand wasn’t always my favorite but I loved how she always kept trying and didn’t give up on anything.  I also loved how hard she worked to keep her column and was willing to do pretty much anything to keep her job.  Overall this was a good book there were slow spots for me but is still such a sweet story that I don’t think it matters about the slow spots.  If you love romance novels than I would for sure recommend this one to you.

Betting on Hope

About The Book

Betting on Hope (Thomas Nelson, February 2015)

A bet gone wrong. A small town’s meddling. And a cowboy intent on saving his ranch.

Maggie Hope is an advice columnist whose background leaves her with little advice to give . . . and it’s beginning to show. When Maggie fills in at an interview with champion horse trainer Tru Monahan, the on-camera chemistry between them is undeniable. Maggie’s bosses know this is the opportunity she’s been looking for to launch her career—and their bank accounts. In order to save her column, Maggie takes Tru up on the bet that he can teach her to ride a quick-stepping cutting horse like any cowgirl, despite the fact that she has never been on a horse. And in the meantime, she can get the scoop on the man under the cowboy hat.

Tru has been on the competition circuit for longer than he’d like, but he knows it’s the only way he can afford to keep the Four of Hearts Ranch that means so much to his ailing grandfather. So when his sponsors see the opportunity for Tru’s fans to get to know the star on a more intimate level, he knows he must oblige. To his dismay, Maggie not only invades his small town of Wishing Springs, but she also invades his heart, and that is something he cannot let any woman do-for her own good.

In Wishing Springs, Maggie finds what she has always been looking for: a community and a home. But when her past catches up to her, it threatens everything, even the tender hope that this town holds all of her heart’s desires.

Miracle At The High Grounds Cafe by Max Lucado

Book Review

Miracle At The High Grounds Cafe by Max Lucado was a great  book to read.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to like this book when I first started it but once I was a few chapters into the book I didn’t want to put it down.  There were aspects of this book that I had never seen before and I loved that about this book.  I don’t want to spoil any of it with you guys so I won’t go into the details of this book but it was an amazing book.  I also like this one more than others I have read because it is a shorter book and lately with the headaches I have been getting I am not able to read much so shorter books are great for me right now.  If you love Christian fiction than you don’t want to miss this one!

Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe

About The Book

Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe (Thomas Nelson, February 2015)

What if you could ask God anything? What would you ask? And how would he answer?

Chelsea Chambers is on her own. After a public split from her NFL superstar husband, Chelsea takes a bold step out of the limelight and behind the counter of the Higher Grounds Café, an old-fashioned coffee shop in dire need of reinvention. But when her courage, expert planning, and out-of-this-world cupcakes fail to pay the bills, this newly single mom finds herself desperate for help. Better yet, a miracle.

Then a curious stranger lands at Chelsea’s door, and with him, an even more curious string of events. Soon, customers are flocking to the Higher Grounds Café, and not just for the cupcakes and cappuccino. They’ve come for the internet connection to the divine. Now the café has become the go-to place for people in search of answers to life’s biggest questions.

When a catastrophe strikes and her ex comes calling, Chelsea begins to wonder if the whole universe is conspiring against her quest to make it on her own. After a shocking discovery opens her eyes to the unseen world around her, Chelsea finds the courage to ask, and heaven answers in a most unexpected way.

If I Say No by Brandy Jellum

If I Say No by Brandy Jellum was a great book.  This is the second book in this series and I did read and review the first one so if you missed that review you can click here and check that one out.  I have to say that I liked this book more than I like the first one and I am not sure why.  One thing about this book that was different for me is the fact that I loved Reid this time and didn’t like Eli at all.  There were things in this book that took me by surprise which is why I think I like this book more than the first one.  If you love mystery/thriller type books than I would for sure tell you check this one out.  If you have read it what did you think of the book?
