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.
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.
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. From the quirky residents of Wishing Springs to some Monahan brotherly ribbing to Jarrod’s drawling dreaminess, be prepared to smile. A lot. And when Jarrod sets his mind to wooing… well, best have your fainting couch handy.
I am beside myself with excitement today.
Because today’s review is not written by me, but by my sweet niece Michaela!!!!
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!
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.
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.
Jody Hedlund has once again crafted a beautiful story of love and hope set against an exquisitely-researched backdrop of history.
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.
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.
Shelley Shepard Gray consistently delivers skillfully-written stories of hope and grace, and A Son’s Vow is no exception.
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.
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!
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.
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.
