A Williamsburg Christmas by Anne Greene

A historical town dressed in the spirit of the time, a hero and heroine long lost to each other and young and mischievous eight year old twins, what more would you need to make a wonderful Christmas story? These elements plus even more make it meaningful and fun. Friendship plays a big part in the story too. Holly and Shirley work together as waitresses in a colonial style inn. They each have the others back. Holly is a Christian and a widow with twin boys. Shirley is single and a non-believer…See More

Woman of Courage by Wanda Brunstetter

The title is to me a little deceiving. Actually there are two women of courage, Amanda and Mary. The story begins in 1837 and follows the travels of Amanda Pearson, a Quaker, heading from New York to the Oregon Territory. Her goal is to be a missionary to the Nez Perce’ Indians.She starts out with her father and a guide. There are many trials and setbacks. They are hindered by the weather, unfriendly Indians, treacherous travels and occasionally a lack of nutrition. It always amazes me at the…See More

"I enjoyed Elementary school. There was no class differences and no separate social groups. That changed in high school and some thought they were better than others."

In Too Deep by Lynn H. Blackburn

I love books where the ending is a total surprise, so I love this one! The dive team is called in when a car is found submerged in Lake Porter with a female occupant. She is deceased and they ponder, suicide, failed brakes, was she run off the road, murder? As the investigation goes deeper and deeper they find more twists and turns. The female main character, Sabrina, is attacked at her home and almost dies, then she along with two others are almost killed when a bomb explodes within a few feet…See More

Lacey and the Law by Anne Greene

This novella was nothing like what I expected but in a good way. The roaring twenties, 1924 to be exact, full of gangsters, flappers, corrupt police, mobsters and prohibition. The main character, Lacey, was young, rich and ready to experience life. Daring in that she cut her waist length hair into a short bob, hemmed up her long dresses to above her knees and snuck out at night with her best friend and two males to bars/dance halls that served alcohol. She was ready to experience whatever her…See More

When You Look at Me by Pepper Basham

Pepper Basham never ceases to amaze me with her God given gift of words. This novel holds so many emotions. The heroine, Julia, is facing some tough decisions and hard emotions she has to work through with a therapist. She literally runs into Henry while she's holding an armful of decorated cupcakes. Soon they start spending time together and sharing their mutual love for all things music. Julia's "country boy" dad has a hard time accepting that two of his daughters are dating men from England.…See More

The Cumberland Bride by Shannon McNear

This was a very enjoyable read. This is the fifth book in the Daughters of the Mayflower series. Each one I've read seems to be a little better as the stories unfold of the beginnings of our great nation. The Cumberland Bride was full of travel, adventure, danger and sweet romance. Set in 1794, Kate and her family along with a few other settlers begin a long, grueling journey to Kentucky over rough trails using pack horses. Kate's dad, Karl Gruener, has hired Thomas Bledsoe to scout for them.…See More

The Liberty Bride by Marylu Tyndall

Posted on November 27, 2018 at 12:13am 0 Comments

I'm loving this Daughters of the Mayflower series, every single book! The characters in The Liberty Bride were realistic and believable. The war of 1812, where America was fighting for independence against Britain was front and center. Spies, cannons and muskets, oh my!

On the ship the Charlotte, Emeline soon found herself along with all the other passengers, captured by the British and put on board the HMS Marauder. She soon was used for her medical skills learned from helping her…

The Amish Midwifes Secret by Rachel Goode

Posted on November 26, 2018 at 12:17pm 0 Comments

From the very first chapter a secret was alluded to and grabbed my attention to where it was hard to lay the book aside to do mundane everyday things. I read whenever and wherever I could grab an hour or three.

I felt for both characters. Leah was a baptized Amish church member which restricted her somewhat in what she felt God was calling her to do, deliver babies. She also ran her family's herbal store and strongly believed in natural remedies.

Kyle was just finishing up his…

Emergency Case by Dr. Richard Mabry

Posted on November 13, 2018 at 10:32pm 0 Comments

Another great novella by Dr. Mabry! Being a retired physician himself, he writes with experience and knowledge that makes his stories more realistic and more interesting. This was suspense at its best with a surprise perp at the end. And no, I didn't figure it out ahead of time and I also didn't sneak a peep the end. That spoils the fun!

Although Kelly is a doctor and her husband Jack is an attorney, the action centered more in the criminal/police area than the medical. I enjoy the…
