Dani Pettrey’s first offering in her new series is inventive, action-packed, and extremely well-written. Cold Shot bursts onto the scene with brilliant suspense and compelling characters that make it nearly impossible to put down. In fact, if you are at all prone to biting your nails when tensions are high, you may need to schedule a manicure once you’ve finished reading this novel!

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.

There are so many great opportunities to grin while reading Kissed By A Cowboy, the final book in the Four of Hearts Ranch series by Debra Clopton.

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.

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 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.

Thin Ice may very well be my favorite yet of Irene Hannon’s romantic suspense offerings. The romance, the suspense, the action, the characters – and their interactions with each other – are all just top-notch. This is definitely a novel I will keep on my favorites shelf to reread.

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.

If you’ve spent half a second around me or my blog, you know how much I adore Melanie Dickerson’s fairy tale retellings. You also probably know how much I adore Regency fiction, especially those books that make my Jane-Austen-loving heart smile. Combine Melanie Dickerson and Regency fiction?!? Yep. I’m pretty much on cloud 9.



Review: Paralyzed by Alana Terry

Review: Paralyzed by Alana Terry

Posted January 15, 2016 / 3 Comments

Alana Terry is a very unique writing voice in Christian suspense fiction. She’s not afraid to tackle the tough stuff, and the faith element is very strong. However, don’t mistake “very strong” for “preachy” or “political”. In fact, just about the time I thought it could cross over into preachy territory, the author threw in a curve ball that kept the character and the story from becoming a caricature.
