Every time I open a book by MaryLu Tyndall (which sadly hasn’t been as often as I would like), I am swept away from word one. Caught up in the story and unable – not to mention, unwilling – to tear myself from it. Charity’s Cross held true to this reader-kidnapping, freezing me in place with the very first sentence: “Charity killed her husband.”
Lynette Eason’s latest suspense offering is fast-paced, action-packed, and full of grace. Her writing talent is more than evident in the natural dialogue, the tension, the vivid characters. While romance is definitely present in the story, it never overshadows the suspense, making this an ideal choice both for people who do love kissingbooks and those who don’t.
I fell in love. With the book. With the characters. With the settings. And especially with the message of letting go – of fear, bitterness, and burdens we were never meant to carry.
The Starlight Chronicles is a roller coaster ride of ups and downs as we follow Lark and her bandmates in their quest to win the first round of a national “American Idol”-type competition. In between jam sessions, Lark struggles with her share of teenage angst – conflicts with her mother, questions about her father, friendships, romance, etc. Then there’s Bean.
A Freegan, a bit of a soap opera, and a teeth-grinding detective all walk into a recycling center. What do you get? Deirdre Verne’s latest mystery, Drawing Blood.
The Rafflecopter has spoken!
Out of almost 1700 entries (???? still stunned.), the WINNER of the great KissingBooks giveaway of ’16 (lol) is….
Sweet, clean romance that will still have you reaching for your fan on occasion, A Family Like Hannah’s by Carol Ross takes you through a whole gamut of emotions. From anger and heartbreak to laughter and joy, you will ride the slopes along with a cast of compelling and truly likable characters.
We hope you enjoyed experiencing a little of the historic Pony Express trail as one of its riders helps a lady to get to California! If you missed any of the stops, go back and check them out now…
The Express Rider’s Lady by Stacy Henrie not only provides a sweet romance but also gives readers a compelling glimpse into the perilous conditions once common to cross terrain we now take for granted. Smooth writing, vivid settings, and heartstopping action bring the characters and the history to life. A quick read, as typical to the Love Inspired line, but very entertaining!
Murder on Wheels is the first book I’ve read by Lynn Cahoon. It will not be my last. In fact, while I did perfectly fine reading this sixth book in the Tourist Trap Mystery series without having read the previous installments, I am definitely going to go back and read from book one. Why? Because Murder on Wheels is everything I love about the cozy mystery genre.
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 😉
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.
This final book in Robin Lee Hatcher’s Kings Meadow Romance series is a beautifully composed harmony of forgiveness, faith, and falling in love.
A new twist on the Edwardian era, Arcana combines history, romance, and fantasy with a dashing hero and a spirited heroine.
This book is perhaps the best suspense novel I’ve ever read. And I don’t say that lightly. I’ve read a lot of suspense novels. I’ve loved a lot of suspense novels. I will love a lot of suspense novels in the future. But … there’s just something really special about this one.
Wow! I can’t believe January is over and done already!
Here’s a look at how the blog spent its time during the first month of the year
Coming March 1, 2016, from Harlequin Heartwarming
Suspense, romance, history, family, and faith all come together in the framework of a novel even stronger than its predecessor. The theme of grace and restoration is poignant and sincere yet beautiful in its simplicity.
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
Shelley Shepard Gray consistently delivers skillfully-written stories of hope and grace, and A Son’s Vow is no exception.
