Sundown Susan May Warren

Description:

Former Delta Operative Colt Kingston knows when someone is lying. He may not know the truth, but he sure doesn’t trust Tae, the woman who is caring for his ailing father at Sky King Ranch. Behind those beautiful blue eyes, he can tell there is a troubled–and smart–woman.

A few of her stories prove true–he’s found the crashed plane and the dead body inside. Still, her story of survival seems too incredible to believe . . . until the thugs she claims to be hunting her show up and threaten Sky King Ranch. Now Tae must disappear, along with her secrets.

But Colt’s not about to let her go it alone. And when they discover that her secrets include the antidote to a plague that threatens the world, it’ll take all three Kingston brothers to save the country they’ve vowed to protect.

Susan May Warren brings her Sky King Ranch series to a climactic close with this high-stakes race against the clock.

My Review:

This author never disappoints. This book was once again that I found hard to put down. I really liked how the author made the characters feel real. I loved Tae she really struggled with decisions that she made in her life and she also struggled with her faith after a tragic loss, but she was a fighter and would not stop at anything to fight to change the world and make it a better place. Colt is a fighter and he wants the best but he is struggling with his own demons and just can’t seem to get out of his head and into his heart. The story line was well played out and will keep you guessing to the end on what’s going to happen next. Overall I loved the main and sub characters and I loved the core value of the story. The author did keep this a clean read and it was well worth it.

An Amish Marriage of Convenience Rachel J. Good

Description:

In USA Today bestselling author Rachel J. Good’s sweetly romantic inspirational series, the bustling Green Valley Farmer’s Market in Pennsylvania is an unexpected place for residents of nearby Amish communities to find the partner of their dreams. But as spring gives way to summer and the market fills with the season’s bounty, a new relationship begins to bloom as well…

When widower Stephen Lapp moves his five children from New York State to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, his only plan is to buy his family’s farm stand, Lapp’s Pastured Pork. That way, his brother can move closer to his fiancée and open his own stand. But on Stephen’s first trip to the market, his brave act of kindness nearly ends in catastrophe—until strong-willed Nettie Hartzler saves him—and makes an impression he can’t forget . . .

A widow with private heartaches of her own, Nettie has no interest in getting involved with any man, though she doesn’t discourage their respective children’s new friendships—despite Stephen’s contentious oldest daughter. But when Nettie runs into serious money worries and Stephen proposes a marriage of convenience, she’s distressed and conflicted. She’s come to know Stephen’s gentle heart and generous soul, and she can’t believe he’ll want her if she reveals the sins of her past. God has His own plans for the faithful, however, and this time they may include a second chance at love . . .

My Review:

I really enjoy amish books and this author did a spend on the story so it made the read very different by good. I was not a fan of Joline at all she was a brat and she really was annoying. I like Nettie she faced a lot but she was a fighter. I really loved Mrs. V she was like an angel working to leave the world in a better place then she found it. I did feel like there was a ton of conflict in this book which I did not really feel like it was all needed, but overall the book was a fun read to see where the author took the characters was fun as well. This book is a good clean read!! I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

“This action-packed thriller is sure to please.”–
IRENE HANNON, bestselling and award-winning author

“I love Dani’s writing, and The Deadly Shallows is one of her best! Tightly written and dripping with tension. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.”–CARRIE STUART PARKS, bestselling and award-winning author of Relative Silence

My Review:

I could not put this book down, from the first page to the last. This author has a way of putting you on the edge of your seat and makes you feel like you are right in the middle of the madness. I really liked Brooke she was such a fighter and loved wholeheartedly. Noah was a protector of anyone who he truly cared about. The book did keep me guessing for the first part of the book until everything started playing out, but even with all the piecing together the author kept you guessing to what was going to happen next. This book is amazing and I can not stop recommending this book.

A PLACE TO HEAL Allie Pleiter

Description:

She’s found the perfect place for her camp.
But will he agree to her terms?

Opening a camp for children who’ve dealt with tragedy is former police detective Dana Preston’s main goal in life. After wandering the country, she’s finally found the perfect location—Mason Avery’s expansive Arizona mountainside property. Convincing the widowed dad—and the town—to agree might take a little prayer and a lot of hard work. But Dana’s never backed down from a challenge yet…

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.

My Review:

Sometime you know if the journey you are on is going to be for the long run or if you need to take what you learned and help others. I feel that was what Dana did in this book she wanted a place to heal but also wanted to help other heal. Mason needed to get everything together in order to figure out what was best for his son. I really liked Charlie he had such a big heart that was hurting and needed to find life at such a young age. This book was such a quick and cute read. It was fun and a clean read and worth it over all.

Free Fall Nancy Mehl

Description:

The closer she comes to the truth, the deadlier her chase gets. 

FBI behavioral analyst Alex Donovan and her colleague Logan Hart have been called upon to write a profile for a missing woman, but a little digging quickly turns up more disappearances in Virginia with the same physical description.

“The relentless pace will keep readers glued to their seats . . . This pulse-pounding romantic thriller is a wild ride.”–Publishers Weekly

My Review:I could not put this book down I has you sucked in right away and the author throws you so twist and turns that keep you guessing to the very end. In fact in the last part of the book the author throws a curveball I was so mad at first then kept reading only to take a nice sigh. know this the books not over until the that word is read. I really liked the “family” aspect of this group of friends. I loved Alex she has such a big task to take on but has the biggest heart for those who are struggling. I truly have nothing bad to say its amazing and you can not go wrong. Grab this book you will not be disappointed.

Angel Kisses and Riversong Lynnette Bonner

Description:
He’s a former NFL quarterback from Florida with an injury that has put an end to his career.

She’s a penny pinching innkeeper from Washington, just trying to make enough money to care for her grandmother.

Needing to escape the media and the constant pressure to make a decision about his future, Jett Hudson escapes to a B&B in the small town of Riversong, Washington. A month of R&R in the middle of nowhere ought to do him some good. But when he arrives and has to wake the owner, who is sound asleep at her desk, he starts having second thoughts about his choice of lodging—even if her messy bun reminds him of a halo, and her soft gaze has a way of making him forget to breathe.

After a long night, and even longer day, of taking care of her grandmother, Salem Finn jolts awake to find her new guest—and financial hope—eyeing the door like he wants to make a run for it. All her exhaustion comes to the fore. How is she supposed to be a twenty-four seven caretaker and still run a prosperous business?

Sometimes the river of life takes unexpected turns. And sometimes those turns lead to angel kisses…and Riversong.

This contemporary, sweet, clean romance will take you to small-town America, where the neighbors all know each other’s business, and the police chief’s biggest worry is where to find his next fishing hole.

My thoughts on the book:
He’s a football player who’s been injured and looking to get away from it all, the media the disappointment of not knowing what to do next and just finding himself. He ends up in Riversong Wa, with a prayer in his heart and relaxing on his brain. Salem just needs to hold it all together taking care of her grandmother and finding a way to provide for them both and starting a B & B. When her first client shows up it seems everything is going wrong and she starts to question if she is making the right choices for herself and her grandmother. If she can just survive this she know she can take whatever is thrown at her. 
I really loved this book. I haven’t read many with the main character being a football player. I was telling my husband about the book only to have to let him down that it was fiction and he wouldn’t recognize the player :-). I totally got sucked in to the story and it was really just the sweetest love story. I was glad that the book wasn’t to deep it was light hearted and with just enough drama it keeps your attention and keeps you turning the pages to see whats going on next. I am super excited to read more of Zai story. I love her and Salem’s friendship it truly is the definition of what a true friend is all about. This book is a good clean fun read you really cant go wrong.

The View from Coral Cove Amy Clipston

Description:

When a jilted romance novelist escapes to a small beach town, the last thing she expected to find was the start of an even better love story.

In the wake of a broken engagement and the death of her last surviving family member, sweet romance novelist Maya Reynolds moves to the haven of Coral Cove, North Carolina, to take over her great-aunt’s toy store. Some of her grief is immediately eased by imaginative eight-year-old Ashlyn Tanner, who talks her into adopting a kitten and inspires Maya to create a princess tea-party room in the store.

Ashlyn’s dad, local veterinarian Brody Tanner, is quickly smitten by the newest resident of his hometown. As a single parent, he sacrifices a lot in order to give Ashlyn the world, so a romantic entanglement with Maya is not a distraction he is looking for.

As the three develop a deepening bond in the seaside town where Maya experienced some of her happiest childhood memories, clouds cast a shadow over Maya’s hope for the future: an impossible deadline looms over her next novel, a long-held secret by her late mother about Maya’s absent father comes to light, and Brody’s resolve to avoid romance seems unbreakable.

But together, they just might discover that sometimes happy endings happen outside the pages of Maya’s novels too.

Advance praise for The View from Coral Cove:

“Grieving and brokenhearted, novelist Maya Reynolds moves to Coral Cove, the place where she felt happiest as a child. An old family secret upends Maya’s plan for a fresh start, as does her longing to love and be loved. The View from Coral Cove is Amy Clipston at her best—a tender story of hope, healing, and a love that’s meant to be.” —Suzanne Woods Fisher, bestselling author of On a Summer Tide

My Review:I could not put this book down anytime I had to I tried to hurry back to it, it was so good. The author has a way of making you feel like you are catching up with friends with this book. I loved Ashlyn she was so fun to read about she was a pistol and I feel totally helped make the story what it was. I really liked Maya and Brody each had baggage they had to deal with but each was after two things healing and love. I loved how each page the author draws you in and throws in a twist that while you know something is up you are happy with the way things turn. I loved that this book was a good clean read and that it would be suitable for all ages. I could not recommend this book more!!!

The Sugarcreek Surprise Wanda E. Brunstetter

Description:

Welcome to Sugarcreek, Ohio, where the Amish schoolteacher has a determined admirer. Tragically losing her parents as a child, Lisa Miller has grown up being afraid of loving and losing. She dedicates herself to teaching at an Amish schoolhouse and helping the grandparents who raised her, all the while avoiding the advances of newcomer Paul Herchberger. Paul enjoys antiques and meets Orley Troyer while looking for unique old milk bottles at yard sales. Orley and his wife offer prayers and advice as Paul tries to reach Lisa’s closed heart. But when secrets are revealed, will Lisa use them as an excuse to close herself off again?

My Review:I really liked this book a lot. I feel like when people think Amish they think they have a simple life and they don’t necessarily face the same things as the rest of us. In this book thats far from the truth. I really Liked Lisa and even though her faith was strong she struggled with fear of loosing those close to her she was strong and kept fighting. Paul he was a good guy with a big heart that needed healing, he too had a few things he needed to work out but with his faith in God and his willingness to ask for help he was willing to face things head on which is not always easy. I feel like my emotions were all over the place with this book you would be laughing in on page and then tears in another. I Liked that I was able to catch up with the Towers again in the book they are the sweetest couple and I was so glad to read more about them. Overall this is a clean read and I would recommend it to anyone.

Magdelena’s Choice Molly Jebber

Description:

Fresh-baked muffins fragrant with ripe blueberries . . . cinnamon-scented turnovers that transform any meal into a feast. . . . In 1914 Ohio, the Amish Charm Bakery holds a special place within its close-knit, faith-filled community, where love finds a way through God’s grace . . .

As the daughter of a wealthy rancher, Magdelena Beachy may not truly need her job at the Amish Charm Bakery, but she enjoys tending to customers, be they neighbors or curious Englischers. Only one thing would make life sweeter, and that’s if Toby Schlabach would court her. It’s not just his dimples and smile that warm Magdelena’s heart—she admires his kindness and values. Yet she worries their chance may slip away . . . 

With his daed ill and his mother and sister depending on him, Toby can’t yet offer Magdelena the future she deserves. But even as he nears his goal, he learns her father has arranged a match with another suitor. Magdelena risks shunning if she goes against her family. Choosing a path will take courage as well as faith—in God’s plan, and in this steadfast, tender love . . .

My Review:

I was not a fan of this book, at first I liked it. However I felt like after something happens in Toby’s life I found Magdelena become whinny and so selfish and self centered. I liked Toby overall he had a big heart and the relationship between him and Rachel was so sweet. I loved Charity and Peter as well they really did keep me reading till the end. Overall this is a clean read but this book was not for me. I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

Life Flight Lynette Eason


Description:

A heart-stopping, breath-stealing masterpiece of romantic suspense!”– Colleen Coble, USA Today bestselling author

***

EMS helicopter pilot Penny Carlton is used to high stress situations, but being forced to land on a mountain in a raging storm with a critical patient–and a serial killer on the loose–tests her skills and her nerve to the limit. She survives with FBI Special Agent Holt Satterfield’s help. But she’s not out of the woods yet.

In the ensuing days, Penny finds herself under attack. And when news reaches Holt that he may not have gotten his man after all, it will take all he and Penny have to catch a killer–before he catches one of them.

Bestselling and award-winning author Lynette Eason is back with another high-octane tale of close calls, narrow escapes, and the fight to bring a nefarious criminal to justice.

My Review:
I could not put down this book. So when the first book started the author went one way and I was kind of taken back at first being that fact that I wasn’t sure where this book was going to take me. Then the author throws in a twist and sucked me right back in. I could not put down this book even tried talking to my non reader husband on date night about it. Just one of those stories that sticks with you. I really liked Penny and her close knit group of friends, it just seemed like not matter what one was going through they all were there for each other. I liked Holt oh man that guy had me yelling at him a few times but overall he was a good guy seeking out to do what was right for the world and his family. I am telling you if you are looking for a book that puts you on the edge of your seat, with twist and turns and keeps you guessing then you will not be disappointed by this book. This book is very much worth the read
