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.

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.
Scar Tissue by MC Domovitch

False Prophet by Richard Davis

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. I received no other compensation and the opinions expressed in this review are mine.

False Prophet by Richard Davis was another book that I knew I would like just because of the type of book it was. Right from the first chapter of this book I was hooked and I didn’t want to put the book down until I had finished it. There are so many things that I enjoyed about this book that I am not sure what to say. I loved how the author was able to make me truly believe what was happening in the book. I love when I read books, and I am left feeling like what occurred in the book could happen in the world. I liked all the characters in the book as well because like I just said I could see them living in the world. I love this authors style of writing and how he was able to me understand why the characters did the things that they did. He made me feel as if I was there with the characters and I love when authors can make the book come alive while I am reading it.  This book kept me wondering what was going to happen next which I always love because I tend to figure out what is going to happen so I love when I can’t figure out what is going happen.  This is the first I have heard of this author, and I can’t wait to check out more books by him in the future. If you love mystery/thrillers than I know, you will love this book.

Freedom’s Child by Jax Miller

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Blogging For Books 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.

Freedom’s Child by Jax Miller was an excellent book. This is the typical kind of book that I usually will choose to read because they are the books I tend to like. I do want to say that the language in this book might offend people, but I didn’t mind it. At times, I thought that it was an interesting choice of words, but it was nothing that would have made me want to stop reading the book. I almost figured that it would have some language in it based on the cover of the book and the description of the book. I wasn’t the biggest fan of this book, but that did make me want to stop reading it, and I had no problem finishing the book like I have with other books in the past. If you don’t get easily, offend by language, and you love thriller type books than I would suggest you pick up this book and see what you think. If you have read this book what, did you think of it?

Freedoms Child by Jax Miller

About The Book

Freedom Oliver has plenty of secrets.  She lives in a small Oregon town and keeps mostly to herself.  Her few friends and neighbors know she works at the local biker bar; they know she gets arrested for public drunkenness almost every night; they know she’s brash, funny, and fearless.

What they don’t know is that Freedom Oliver is a fake name.  They don’t know that she was arrested for killing her husband, a cop, twenty years ago.  They don’t know she put her two kids up for adoption.  They don’t know that she’s now in witness protection, regretting ever making a deal with the Feds, and missing her children with a heartache so strong it makes her ill.

Then, she learns that her daughter has gone missing, possibly kidnapped.  Determined to find out what happened, Freedom slips free of her handlers, gets on a motorcycle, and heads for Kentucky, where her daughter was raised.  As she ventures out on her own, no longer protected by the government, her troubled past comes roaring back at her: her husband’s vengeful, sadistic family; her brief, terrifying stint in prison; and the family she chose to adopt her kids who are keeping dangerous secrets.

Written with a ferocious wit and a breakneck pace, Freedom’s Child is a thrilling, emotional portrait of a woman who risks everything to make amends for a past that haunts her still.

From the Hardcover edition.

The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder by Rachel McMillan

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 are 100% my own.

The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder by Rachel McMillan was a fantastic book. When I opened the package that the book came in, I had to smile because there was a note that the author wrote tucked in the book, and it made me laugh. I also loved that some of the words had an asterisk by them and then at the bottom of the page it explains what it means or why she is using it. I loved that because it makes it easier to read because she explains parts of it, so you don’t have to stop reading to figure out what she meant. As I was reading this book, I had a constant smile on my face because the book just put me in a good mood. I love how well this book was written, and I loved that the main characters were doing things that women wouldn’t have been able to do during that time. I have read tons of historical fiction books, and this one is by far my favorite as of late, and I can’t wait for another book by this author to be released. It is an easy read, and it went by super quick. I love when I read books that are easy to read and go by fast because I don’t have to wait too long to find out how the story ends. I am sure most people would enjoy this book, and I recommend it everyone who is looking for a new book to read.

The Bachelor Girl's Guide to Murder by Rachel McMillan

About The Book

In 1910 Toronto, while other bachelor girls perfect their domestic skills and find husbands, two friends perfect their sleuthing skills and find a murderer.

Inspired by their fascination with all things Sherlock Holmes, best friends and flatmates Merinda and Jem launch a consulting detective business. The deaths of young Irish women lead Merinda and Jem deeper into the mire of the city’s underbelly, where the high hopes of those dreaming to make a new life in Canada are met with prejudice and squalor.

While searching for answers, donning disguises, and sneaking around where no proper ladies would ever go, they pair with Jasper Forth, a police constable, and Ray DeLuca, a reporter in whom Jem takes a more than professional interest. Merinda could well be Toronto’s premiere consulting detective, and Jem may just find a way to put her bachelor girlhood behind her forever–if they can stay alive long enough to do so.

A Dream Of Miracles by Ruth Reid

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions expressed in this review are 100% my own.  I received no other compensation for this review.

A Dream Of Miracles by Ruth Reid was an excellent book. I am a total sucker for Amish fiction and non-fiction books so because of that I figured that I would, at least, enjoy this book. I read one other book in this series and I loved it just like I did this one. If you missed that review you can click here to go and check it out. I really have enjoyed reading both books by this author and I can’t wait to pick up the one book that I missed in this series so that I can read the entire series. You don’t have to read these books in order if you don’t want to so I also love when that happens with series of books. I felt so sorry for Mattie because of everything she had to deal with. I can’t even imagine what understand what was going on and having people convinced that you hurt your child. I spent the entire book hoping that her and Bo would end up together in the end and I won’t give away what happens with them. All I can say is that I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Amish fiction because I know it won’t let you down.

A Dream Of Miracles by Ruth Reid

About The Book

Mattie Diener can barely keep it together. A young Amish widow and mother of two small children, she faces the lingering heartbreak of lost love, her son s mysterious illness, and a torrent of accusations that threaten to undo her.”

Asperger’s on the Inside by Michelle Vines

Book Review Graphic

FTC: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.  I received no other compensation for this review.  All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

Asperger’s on the Inside by Michelle Vines was an interesting book to read. When I saw one of the places I review books for was offering this book, I knew I had to get it and fit it into my schedule sooner than it would have taken me usually. I am so glad that I did because I loved everything about this book. I had to keep reading it because I wanted to know how it worked out for her and how her life turned out. I also loved that instead of just talking about her life throughout the entire book she answered questions. I am sure that it would bother some people that she jumps around but I love it because it made me understand a little bit more about how some individuals who have Autism may think. She also did an excellent job of making me understand why some people who have Autism don’t react to things right away and why that may be. I could go on for days about this book so I will leave it here. I think everyone should read this book because it was so super interesting.

0 - Lily Hollow

About The Book

Asperger’s on the Inside is an acutely honest and often highly entertaining memoir by Michelle Vines about life with Asperger’s Syndrome. The book follows Michelle in exploring her past and takes the reader with her on her journey to receiving and accepting her diagnosis.

Instead of rehashing widely available Asperger’s information, Michelle focuses on discussing the thoughts, feelings and ideas that go along with being an Aspie, giving us a rare peek into what it really feels like to be a person on the spectrum.

A must read for all those who enjoy deep personal stories or have a loved one on the spectrum that they wish to understand better.

Vines-Michelle-Headshot

About The Author

Michelle Vines was born in Liverpool, Australia and grew up in a hilly forest region of Melbourne known as the Dandenong Ranges. After showing talent in the areas of mathematics and science, Michelle was accepted into the University of Melbourne where she received bachelor’s degrees with honors in chemical engineering and environmental science. Michelle began her career as a process engineer in the oil and gas industry and subsequently became a technical leader in manufacturing. However, after five years of feeling deeply unhappy in her work environment, Michelle paused her engineering career in 2008.

In 2010, Michelle moved to the United States with her one-year-old son, where she had another son the following year. She gradually grew to love the town of Houston, Texas, and has chosen to remain ever since.

At thirty years old, on the advice of friends, Michelle approached a psychologist at the University of Texas Health Science Center for assessment and was officially diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome. Michelle found the diagnosis to be a huge relief, and she has since dedicated a lot of her time to advocating for people on the Autism spectrum with the goal of helping the general public better understand the Autistic person’s perspective. In 2013, she gave a public presentation on “Life as an Adult with Asperger’s Syndrome,” which has been viewed by tens of thousands of people on YouTube and has been instrumental in giving many others hope and the courage to seek out their own Asperger’s diagnosis.

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 for this review.  All opinions expressed in this review are all mine.

Sit Stay Love by Dana Mentink was an excellent book.  I am a sucker for books that have animals as one of the characters because I love animals so much.  I enjoyed this book right from the start, and I was sad when it was over because I loved Gina and Tippy.  I wasn’t a huge fan of Cal but by the end of the book, I started to like him.  There are parts of this book that made me laugh out loud.  I also love that the author of this book is donating a part of the proceeds from this book to a rescue group that takes care of older dogs.  This is the first book I have read by this author, and I can’t wait to read more because her book made me smile and I love that about it.  I can’t say enough good things about this book, and I can’t wait to read other books by her.  If you love super cute Christian romance novels then I know you will love this book as much as I do.

Sit Stay Love by Dana Mentink

About The Book

Take one abrasive professional athlete, a quirky out-of-work schoolteacher, and an overweight geriatric dog, and you’re ready for a lesson in love…Tippy style.

Pro baseball pitcher Cal Crawford is not a dog guy. When he inherits his deceased mother’s elderly dog, Tippy, he’s quick to call on a pet-sitting service.

As Gina travels through Cal’s world with Tippy in tow, she begins to see Cal in a different light. Gina longs to show Cal the God-given blessings in his life that have nothing to do with baseball or fame. When her longing blooms into attraction, Gina does her best to suppress it. But Cal is falling in love with her too…

Discover the charming story of Tippy, the dog who brought a family together.
