Because You’re Mine

Because You’re Mine by Colleen Coble is a stand alone novel published by HarperCollins publishing group.  I’ve never been a huge fan of this author’s works, but when the publisher asked me to give this latest release a try, I accepted anyway. Unfortunately, it turned out worse than any other book by this author that…

Maybe It’s You

Maybe It’s You by Candace Calvert is the third book in the “Crisis Team” series published by Tyndale House, and it is the first book that I’ve read in this series.  It worked well as a stand alone; I didn’t even realize that it was part of a series until I began writing this review….

Be Bold

Be Bold is a new release by Tyndale Publishers of a tweens’ inspirational coloring book.  This coloring book is more of a half coloring book, half devotional.  Each page layout has a devotional on one side and then a corresponding coloring page next to it.  I do kinda wish that the corresponding coloring page was on…

To the Farthest Shores

To the Farthest Shores by Elizabeth Camden is a stand-alone novel published by Bethany House. Camden has her own unique style of writing, and while most of her books have been “hits” for me, there have also been a handful of “misses”. To the Farthest Shores falls somewhere in between. The characters drew me in with…

The Little Princess Who Could (PSST: I’m Talking About You)

I have a quote that makes up my home screen background.  It says, “Beautiful Girl, you were made to do hard things.  So believe in yourself.” We’ve all been through rough patches in our lives.  I wonder if you, like me, have questioned God about how you would get through it.  If you could handle…

An Uncommon Protector

  An Uncommon Protector by Shelley Shepard Gray is the sequel to The Loyal Heart, which was  number one on the list of My Top Ten Favorite Books of 2016.  So needless to say, I was super excited for this book to release, and had very high expectations for it.  An Uncommon Protector  met and exceeded those hopes;…

The Garden

Kari Jobe, a Christian music figure, has just released her latest album, entitled “The Garden”.  This is an album mostly consisting of prayers put to music, and they are great to meditate on while doing your devotional or studying to enhance your time with God and enter into an atmosphere of worship with Him.  Birthed…

The Illusionist’s Apprentice

  The Illusionist’s Apprentice by Kristy Cambron, which may sound like a sequel to The Ringmaster’s Wife, is not.  Both are stand-alone novels. Wren Lockhart was an apprentice to Harry Houdini before he died, and now she is the only one who knows how he did his tricks.  This puts her as a target for the next…

As per tradition, every year I post the top five fiction books that I am looking forward to releasing in 2017 and reading in 2017.  Here goes:    1.) True to You by Becky Wade.  This is the first book in a new series by this author, and while I will miss the Porter Family Series, I…
