Review of Fool's Gold: Color Me Consumed (TrueColors #6) by Melody Carlson

Book Review - Misery Loves Company by Rene Gutteridge

An emotionally gripping suspenseful tale!

OK, so what got me interested in reading this book was the title. I just loved it! I then read the summary of the story and it sounded really good so I decided to try it. And I was right, it was very good!

This book grabbed my emotions in ways I can't even explain. The author takes…

Where Is God When Hope Hurts by Carol E. Urton

No synopsis of this book is necessary. I cannot do it justice. The concept of a small child in the hands of a pedophile is almost more than I can comprehend,…

Review of The Mercy Seat by Alvetta Rolle

The Mercy Seat was a good story of redemption and the importance of not letting yourself stray emotionally in marriage by getting close to someone who is not your spouse. I liked the pacing of the story and how realistic the author was regarding temptation and the characters' emotions. I also loved the way she tied Sophia's emotional problems to her adoptive mother's…

Review of Irregardless of Murder by E.E. Kennedy

I’ve never read a “cozy” mystery before, and I’m supposing Irregardless of Murder is one such book. I could be wrong, though. The word “cozy” does seem to describe the feel of this novel. I was delighted with the story and characters.

In Irregardless of Murder, Marguerite LeBow had been murdered in the copy room at the public library, and Amelia Prentice is the…

Hypocrisy is one of the worst sins a man can commit. I hate to say it, but he deserved what happened to him.” The threatening email states in Colleen Coble’s tome, Rosemary Cottage.

Book Review - Prairie Song by Mona Hodgson

Secrets, Romance, Adventure and Westward Expansion!

The characters have real lives and real problems. Accidents happen, illness, and arguing between different families. There are trials and joys,…

“I’ve pursued lots of things all my life. The normal things, you know. Love, mostly, but also fame, recognition, and while I’ve been chasing after them, the Hound of Heaven’s been chasing after me. It’s a strange sort of dog, always at my heels, but just in front of me too, snatching things away from me. He’s everywhere at once,” Elizabeth confides in Amanda Barber’s novel, The Pursuit of Elizabeth Millhouse.

Review of Hearts Key by Marianne Evans

“Faith is a risk. Faith always requires trust. Faith requires vulnerability and absolute belief that, despite everything, God leads you to goodness.”

These are words that Amy Maxwell really needs to believe and embrace with her entire heart. She has almost been able to receive the truth of these words, but her past is holding her captive. Rather than believe…
