I will be reading A Passionate Hope by Jill Eileen Smith.

I would love to read/review  Coming Home.  Covers of books are very important to me and influence my choice.  Ronie Kendig's book covers and Alana Terry's are good ones.

I read Connie Anne  Micheal series A Thousand Stolen Moments. This books deals with PTSD and how veteran survive during war and at home. I never that about finding love in the war zone and its effect. I love the characters and the realness. 

2. I just finished Isaiah's Daughter by Mesu Andrews and it is wonderful biblical fiction about Isaiah, Hezekiah and Hephzibah. I would love to read and review any of your books. PB 10-12 weeks

Fascinating book. Ms Andrews is a wonderful storyteller!

I love all the beautiful book covers! It's hard to pick just one. My line-up includes Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano, Death at Thorburn Hall by Julianna Deering, A Passionate Hope by Jill Eileen Smith, A Light on the Hill by Connilyn Cossette and all my TBCN TBR books. Thanks for the chance to win a book. Of my name is chosen, I'd like Coming Home.

I just finished Katie Ganshert's No One Ever Asked and thought it was fabulous!  The cover would not have caught my eye but I couldn't put down the book!

And I would love to read either When the Bough Breaks or Life in Chapel Springs (I've loved the previous ones!)!

pb please. 8 weeks. I like that the covers look like puzzles. like yours

3. I have been on a Lynette Eason kick lately, I ordered a few of her books from Amazon, and can't seem to get enough.

I would like to be entered in your drawings for "When the Bough Breaks" or "Coming Home." I have already read "Life in Chapel Springs"

Paperback please.


I just finished the marvelous Biblical fiction by Mesu Andrews...Isaiah's Daughter and am looking forward to Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky and A Passionate Hope by Jill Eileen Smith. I've read your When the Bough Breaks and enjoyed it. Looking forward to reading either of the other two offerings! Thank you.

2. Read over 809 books last year and was able to keep at least one per month that was my favorite. A lot of the ones from Bookfun made the hit list because they had a bit of romance, they took me elsewhere, places where I may never get to visit in my lifetime and I learned something new. Good story lines also help make the top list.  My blog is located at

I've read all but Life in Chapel Springs so please enter my name for that book contest. Thanks


1. The Mark of the King and The Lacemaker's covers are STUNNING!

3. Irene Hannon's Pelican Point releases in April. First Love Forever by Carrie Fancett Pagels (Barbour Romance Collection) releases in April. Across the Blue by Carrie Turansky releases in February.
