REVIEW OF SAND CREEK SERENADE BY JENNIFER UHLARIK

It is exciting for a historical romance reader to find a novel that takes place in an area they know well. Such is the case for me with Sand Creek Serenade. This story centers around the historic and horrific Sand Creek massacre, which occurred on the southeastern plains of Colorado in 1864. Much of the story takes place at Fort Lyon, where I worked for many years when the facility served as a VA Hospital.Sand Creek Serenade is a well-researched novel that bridges the chasm between whites and…See More

I usually don’t read books set in the medieval time period, but I was drawn to this story line and glad I read this novel.It is difficult enough for heroine Brithwin to accept an arranged marriage after the death of her father, but she is also forced to face the accusations her husband makes that she murdered his family.Hero Royce is filled with grief and thoughts of revenge when he finds his family has been murdered, and since all signs point to his new wife, he’s determined to see justice…See More

This novel is packed with suspense, high adventure, murder, and romance.Jenny Snowfeather is a park ranger in the Pacific Northwest.

REVIEW OF TIME TSUNAMI BY DANELE J. ROTHAMEL

The possibility that specially trained people could travel back in time and alter the future of others is fascinating, especially in the context of the main character in this book, who starts out on death row after committing a heinous crime.The author builds a believable science fiction world and sweeps her readers into the daily lives of those who function there.

REVIEW OF THE HIGH CALLING OF MOTHERHOOD BY CHIMENE SHIPLEY DUPLER

I was blessed to receive an advanced PDF copy of Chimene Shipley Dupler’s book, The High Calling of Motherhood. When I read the bio about Chimene at the beginning of the book, describing her as a “well-respected speaker and professional on marriage and parenting”, and then learned that she is the founder of a national organization entitled Passion4Moms, I expected some heavy psychological reading.Boy, was I wrong! Chimene has a delightful way of speaking to the heart of moms in a straight…See More
