Cross My Heart by Robin Lee Hatcher

Although I think horses are beautiful animals, I’ve never been a fan.  I have heard of equine therapy which is a great program. I know friends who have used this particular therapy with great success. That being said it did not hinder my enjoyment from reading this book.

Both the main characters, Ashley and Ben, have a strong love of horses. Ashley takes in rescue horses and nourishes them back to health if they are not too far gone. Ben has a vision of having a…

Review of The Pruning by Jan Cline

The Pruning by Jan Cline tells the story of the Wilding family, who leave heartache and despair behind in dust bowl Kansas for the promise of a new life in the Pacific Northwest. This book held my attention from the very first scene. Clarissa, wife to Frank and mother of two boys, runs smack dab into her past the moment the family steps off the train in their new location.

The author does a wonderful job of developing characterization, taking us to the heart of the…

Fragments of Fear by Carrie Stuart Parks

This was a quick read as all of Carrie Stuart Parks books are. I’m reading as fast as I can as the suspense and dangers increase. Lots of intricate happenings seemingly unrelated but are they tied up somehow? It starts out at a funeral that Evelyn McTavish is attending for her fiancé. She has been tied up in knots ever since her beloved grandmother died over a year ago. They were very close, much more so than her and her mother Helen. Whenever she finds herself in a stressful situation…

Core 52 by Mark E. Moore

Core has many meanings in the dictionary but I found it to mean foundational in the title of this book. You will get a foundational understanding of God’s Holy Word. All it takes in this busy world we live in is fifteen minutes a day to read and study a chapter. Then in a year’s time you will have 52 lessons to help understand the Bible more. The first chapter starts with creation and chapter 52 ends with Heaven. In between are chapters covering fundamental ideas from the Bible such as:…

Over the Line by Kelly Irvin

This novel had lots of action and danger among the pages. Dealing with gun smuggling across the border, U.S. to Mexico, made for some fast paced action. The mystery of who was behind it all added to the suspense.

Gabriella, former DA turned restaurant chef, finds a dying man with bullet wounds right outside her restaurant as she’s leaving one late night. On his lips is the name of her brother, Jake, who’s in law enforcement. Thus begins a tangled, twisted story of how to locate him…
