Review: The Thorn Bearer by Pepper D. Basham

Review: The Thorn Bearer by Pepper D. Basham

Posted January 25, 2016 / 14 Comments

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 (and a Giveaway!): Jody Hedlund **CLOSED**

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!

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.

WOW! Colleen Coble is one of my go-to romantic suspense authors for a reason! Between Mermaid Moon and The Inn at Ocean’s Edge (the first book in the Sunset Cove series), I have been spellbound for the past two days & on the edge of my seat from the suspense!


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

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

Posted January 11, 2016 / 2 Comments

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

Regina Jennings is one of my go-to authors when I want to read something that will make me swoon and grin all at the same time. At Love’s Bidding, the second book in her Ozark Mountains series, does exactly that. There’s even a dash of suspense to make mystery fans like me all the happier!
