My Heart Belongs in the Superstition Mountains by Susan Page Davis

This was a different type western from any I've read before, but in a good way. I had recently read a book about the Superstition Mountains so this book caught my eye. I couldn't help but feel sorry for the main character, Carmela, and all she'd suffered in her young life. Losing her parents on a wagon train headed to California when she was twelve, being taken over by a devious uncle who only saw dollar signs in his niece and having ugly tattoos marked on her face by him to fool audiences into…See More

Weaver's Needle" by Robin Caroll

This novel about a mystery in the Superstition Mountains in Arizona was very intriguing. I had never heard of a recovery specialist before but both male and female lead characters were in that business. Both had personal reasons to accept a job with a hefty payback and both were competitors in New Orleans.Danger followed them as they searched for a stolen map that was supposed to lead to a lost gold mine. Legends, folklore and superstition were interweaved among the story. Danger also caused…See More

True to You by Becky Wade

This novel had so many levels to it. So much emotion and at least a couple of twists and turns. I loved the characters! If only I could really meet them! Nora and John, the two main characters, couldn't have been more different. Just as in real life, I guess in fiction too, opposites attract. For Nora the draw was almost immediate but for John, who already had a girlfriend, it took a little longer.Nora's two sisters, Willow and Brit, were interesting. It's going to be fun to read more about…See More

The Dog Who Was There by Ron Marasco

This was a very different book from any I've ever read. Before I read it I thought it was going to be "cartoony" from the title but it was far from that. It begins with Barley as a puppy. Goes through his experiences just trying to survive in first century Roman occupied Jerusalem. He learns about humans, some nice, some downright cruel. Some days it's just a matter of surviving. He also sees a very special man with kind eyes (Jesus). Barley calls him Kind Man. He witnesses the meanness and…See More

Pursued by Lisa Harris

From the first sentence till the last, this was a wild ride. Full of suspense, mystery and danger. It was so well written that I could picture it as a movie with great dialogue. Not overly descriptive, just enough to make you realize the surroundings or what the character looks like. The main focus for me was the communication and interaction between the characters.The story itself kept me mesmerized. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.Nikki, who is an agent for the Tenneessee Bureau of…See More

Just The Way You Are by Pepper Basham

Pepper Basham has a very special God given gift. She puts phrases together in a very unique and entertaining way. I've read all of her books so far and this has to be one of my favorites. I fell in love with the characters, all of them, including the minor ones, well, except for a couple of the trouble makers. But they had to be in the story to give some conflict. The characters were written as imperfect people, which made them all the more real. God's love and grace was allowed to shine…See More

Beyond Justice by Cara Putman

Beyond Justice had lots of elements in the reading. Interesting characters, a little romance, legal issues, immigration, murder and seeking of God's plan. Whew! The fact that Cara Putman has a legal background makes the story much more realistic. And in taking on some of the controversial issues of today opened my eyes to a different side of the issues.Hayden is an up and coming lawyer in a prestigious DC law firm. She's given a case of an illegal from Mexico that was murdered in U.S.…See More

Home by Ginny Yttrup

This is the second book I've read by Ginny Yttrup and it's just as good if not better than the first one. Her stories carry lots of psychological drama. Home had multiple layers. The characters were ones I could deeply care about, their issues, their problems and their outcomes. I got throughly engrossed in the story and could almost feel my presence in the pages of the book. The descriptions of the surroundings in each location was easily imagined. It was emotional and heartwarming. Full of…See More

Doctor's Dilemma by Richard Mabry, M.D.

I enjoy reading medical suspense, one of my favorite genres, and when it's written by a real MD like Richard Mabry, it's especially good! I quickly got drawn into the story and the lives of the characters. A doctor fresh out of his residency with no options for a job takes one with the Hall Group. Shortly after he begins work he starts getting warning notes, phone calls and death threats to leave the group. He already has a special interest in a nurse at the hospital or he would pack his bags…See More

Then Came You by Becky Wade

This was an excellent beginning to Becky Wade's new series about the Bradford Sisters. In between the story lines were text messages, letters, phone messages and phone conversations between the characters. The most fun ones to me were the letters Kathleen wrote to Grant with no expectation of him ever reading them. She could express her feelings completely. Grant wrote his feelings in a journal which was eye-opening into what he was thinking. Grant went through so much but loved his little…See More
