Review (and a Giveaway!): More Than A Promise by Ruth Logan Herne

Review (and a Giveaway!): More Than A Promise by Ruth Logan Herne

Posted March 31, 2016 / 27 Comments

Delightful, warm, and charming, More Than a Promise is more than a love story. Or rather, it’s more than a story about two people falling in love. It’s a story of hope and faith, of humor and family, of blending lives, of second chances, and most of all it’s a story that points to the Author of all love stories and how He’s head over heels for us.

Review: The Storm Sister by Lucinda Riley

Review: The Storm Sister by Lucinda Riley

Posted March 30, 2016 / 2 Comments

The Storm Sister – and its series – captivates me on many levels. The dual timeline is presented both seamlessly and creatively, and each story had multiple layers to uncover. As a series, the overarching thread of the sisters and their mysterious adoptive father continued to intrigue me – and new depths and questions were added that have me anxiously waiting for the next installment.


Top Ten Tuesday: Most Recent 5-Star Reads

Top Ten Tuesday: Most Recent 5-Star Reads

Posted March 29, 2016 / 58 Comments

To close out the month of March here on Top Ten Tuesday, we’re talking about our most recent 5-star reads. This was actually another difficult topic for me to cut off at 10 books because I’ve read so many fantastic books lately! But if I didn’t cut it off at 10, I’d still be talking about them next Tuesday… and probably the Tuesday after that.

When Jem steps into Annie’s life, she’s not expecting anyone to save her. Mute from birth, she’s just using all her wits to survive. All she’s ever really wanted is a family of her own. For someone to see her. To look at her long enough to hear the things she can’t say.

Review: Live Free (An Adult Coloring Book) by Margaret Feinberg

Posted March 27, 2016 / 1 Comment

My favorite thing about Live Free from Margaret Feinberg and Bethany House Publishers is that it puts some purpose to my coloring. While my mind is peacefully engaged in deciding which shade I should make this butterfly, I am also meditating on the Bible verse that graces the page.



Review: A Daring Sacrifice by Jody Hedlund

Review: A Daring Sacrifice by Jody Hedlund

Posted March 26, 2016 / 2 Comments

A strong heroine. A cheeky hero. Electric chemistry. A bit of Robin Hood-esque adventure. Add these to Jody Hedlund’s talent, and you have a fantastic new read for young adults! Adults too, for that matter. (I say this on good authority, as I have not been a ‘young adult’ in quite some time and I thoroughly enjoyed this read.)

Bays tackles – with grit and grace – some of the deepest and darkest questions that touch every soul at some point in life. If you personally haven’t thought them (because we don’t dare say them out loud), someone close to you has… is… will.

Top Ten Tuesday: Could I Have Your Attention, Please?

Posted March 22, 2016 / 74 Comments

Today on Top Ten Tuesday, the team at The Broke and the Bookish thought we should talk about those books that we don’t profile as often. Because, let’s face it – as book bloggers we do have a collection of books and authors that seem to crop up in almost every post. Especially the linkups and memes. So this Tuesday, we dedicate our blogs to those books we do really love so very much… but don’t talk about nearly enough.

Review: A Refuge at Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

Review: A Refuge at Highland Hall by Carrie Turansky

Posted March 18, 2016 / 2 Comments

World War 1 Flying Aces and German Zeppelins zoom across the pages of A Refuge at Highland Hall, the challenges of war meticulously researched and creatively conveyed. The beginnings of new love spark for two couples in this story, tempered by the separation of war – be it by deployment or internment – but allowing the power of the written word to fan the heart’s spark into a steady and enduring flame is truly the stuff of great romance! My favorite of the Edwardian Brides series, A Refuge at Highland Hall is best appreciated if read in context (the characters!!) though it can also be read as a standalone.
