Top Ten Tuesday: KissingBooks 101 Lesson Two (plus a HUGE Giveaway!)

Top Ten Tuesday: KissingBooks 101 Lesson Two (plus a HUGE Giveaway!)

I. Am. SO EXCITED. As soon as I saw that today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic was a Valentine’s KissingBooks Day freebie, I knew immediately what my post would be about. Way back in August, I wrote my KissingBooks 101 post and it remains one of my most popular/highest viewed posts. But since then I have discovered some additionally swoon-worthy KissingBooks – or remembered some that I forgot about when I was writing the first lesson. I’ve had several people ask me to do another KissingBooks 101, and I am nothing if not accommodating when it comes to this topic 😉

Review (and a Giveaway!): A River Too Deep by Sydney Tooman Betts

Before this weekend, I’d heard so many great things about A River Too Deep by Sydney Tooman Betts. A lot of people have raved over it in the “Avid Readers of Christian Fiction” group I belong to on Facebook. So when the opportunity arose to join the blog tour with Celebrate Lit, I jumped at the chance to finally read this much-talked-about book for myself. I can now safely say that I see what all the fuss was about.

Fans of historical fiction – particularly in a frontier setting – will enjoy this latest collaboration between Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse. The characters alone make this well worth the read, and the thread of suspense just adds to the overall appeal. An enjoyable way to pass an evening or two

Review: The Thorn Bearer by Pepper D. Basham

When I originally reviewed The Thorn Bearer, I was a couple weeks into this whole blog thing & I featured it as a Favorites Friday post. At the time, I said, “I’m sure I will still be thinking about The Thorn Bearer months from now…” Now several months later, I not only am still thinking about it as predicted, but I would also still feature it as a favorite because it’s just that beautiful.

Author Interview, Christian, giveaway, historical, Jody Hedlund, romance 54

I am so excited to chat today with author Jody Hedlund! Her newest book, Undaunted Hope, tells the story of Tessa Taylor, a teacher in for an unwelcome surprise when she arrives at her new job. Set in 1870s Upper Peninsula, Michigan, it’s full of romance and vivid characters and history. With a little sass and suspense thrown in for good measure 😉 Watch for a review here in the next couple of weeks!

Book Spotlight: The Isaac Project by Sarah Monzon

Book Spotlight: The Isaac Project by Sarah Monzon

I am THRILLED to be one of the first stops for The Isaac Project blog tour, hosted by Singing Librarian Books. One of my friends – in fact my WONDER TWIN, author Mikal Dawn, told me about this delightful book just before it released last year, and I quickly fell in love with it! I loved it so much that it made my list of the “Best Contemporary Fiction” that I read in 2015.

Review (plus a Giveaway!): The Suspect’s Daughter by Donna Hatch

Review (plus a Giveaway!): The Suspect’s Daughter by Donna Hatch

Donna Hatch, giveaway, historical, mystery/suspense, romance 2

While The Suspect’s Daughter can easily be read as a stand-alone novel (I read this fourth book first and had no problems following along), the characters are much better appreciated when seen through the lens of the preceding books in the ROGUE HEARTS series. Donna Hatch graciously gave me copies of those first three books so I could catch up with all of Grant’s brothers. I’m going to do a mini-review for each one in a second, but let me just say about the whole series – WOW! Keep. Your. Fans. (and freezers) Nearby. All 4 books are a KissingBook Level 5
