Book Review: ‘Dead Silence’ by Robin Caroll

About the Book
Elise Carmichael is a court sign language interpreter who reads lips all the time. As a widow with a young son who is deaf, lip reading is simply second nature, until the day she reads the lips of someone on the phone discussing an attempt to be made on a senator’s life—a senator who just happens to be her mother-in-law. Before she can decide what she needs to do, she receives the information that her son is rushed to the ER and she must leave. Then she later sees the news report that her mother-in-law has been shot and killed. But when she comes forward, her life, as well as her son’s life, may now be in the crosshairs of the assassin.
“I love boxing. I love Hallmark movies. I love fishing. I love scrapbooking. Nope, I’ve never fit into the boxes people have wanted to put me in.” ~Robin Caroll is definitely a contradiction, but one that beckons you to get to know her better.

Robin’s passion has always been to tell stories to entertain others and come alongside them on their faith journey—aspects Robin weaves into each of her published novels.

Best-selling author of more than twenty-seven novels, ROBIN CAROLL writes Southern stories of mystery and suspense, with a hint of romance to entertain readers. Her books have been recognized in several awards, including the Carol Award, HOLT Medallion, Daphne du Maurier, RT Reviewer’s Choice Award, and more.

When she isn’t writing, Robin spends quality time with her husband of twenty-eight-plus years, her three beautiful daughters and two handsome grandsons, and their character-filled pets at home.

Robin serves the writing community as Executive/Conference Director for ACFW.

My Rating: 4 Stars!
A court sign language interpreter reads the lips of a person on the phone and he is talking about the killing of a senator. A senator who just happens to be her mother in law. This is the premise for a taut drama as the woman’s life and safety is threatened along with her deaf son. Caroll brings us into this world very well as we race with her to the thrilling conclusion. Recommended.

My Rating: 4 Stars!
Heather Day Gilbert starts off a new cozy mystery series with No Filter and it totally works. A coffee shop with a dog petting area. I didn’t even need the coffee. Just the dogs would do it for me.

Macy Hatfield has come out of a divorce and moves back to her West Virginia hometown and goes in with her big brother on an odd new venture, the Barks and Beans Café. Soon, though, a murder happens and Macy ends up adopting the victim’s Great Dane. Now, let me tell you: I love a good mystery and Gilbert does it well, but this dog just made the book in my opinion. I want him to come live with me!

Bo and Macy Hatfield make a fine team as they sniff out the suspects in this crime, and more to come in future books! I absolutely love the idea of a petting area in a coffee shop where you can go sit and surround yourself with dog love. The coffee isn’t bad, either. Recommended.

Book Review: ‘Masquerade at Middlecrest Abbey’ by Abigail Wilson

About The Book:
In this new Regency romance, a young unwed mother must protect her heart from the charms of her convenient new husband, Lord Torrington. She is not, however, prepared to protect her life.
When the widowed Lord Torrington agreed to spy for the crown, he never planned to impersonate a highwayman, let alone rob the wrong carriage. Stranded on the road with an unconscious young woman, he is forced to propose marriage to protect his identity and her reputation, as well as his dangerous mission.
Trapped not only by her duty to her country but also by her limited options as an unwed mother, Miss Elizabeth Cantrell and her infant son are whisked away to Middlecrest Abbey by none other than the elder brother of her son’s absent father. There she is met by Torrington’s beautiful grown daughters, a vicious murder, and an urgent hunt for the missing intelligence that could turn the war with France. Meanwhile she must convince everyone that her marriage is a genuine love match if her new husband has any hope of uncovering the enemy.
Determined to keep her son’s true identity a secret, Elizabeth will need to remain one step ahead of her fragile heart, her uncertain future, and the relentless fiend bent on her new family’s ruin.
About Abigail Wilson
Abigail Wilson combines her passion for Regency England with intrigue and adventure to pen historical mysteries with a heart.

My Rating: 5 Stars!
This book was completely engrossing for me. I couldn’t put it down. Wonderful characters, including a swoon worthy hero, who I loved from the moment I met him, a great plot (which I never figured out the culprit), and it just totally captivated me. The marriage of convenience trope is a favorite, too. Loved every minute. Well done!

Book Review: ‘The White Rose Resists: A Novel of the German Students Who Defied Hitler’ by Amanda Barratt

About The Book:
Inspired by the incredible true story of a group of ordinary men and women who dared to stand against evil
The ideal of a new Germany swept up Sophie Scholl in a maelstrom of patriotic fervor–that is, until she realized the truth behind Hitler’s machinations for the fatherland. Now she and other students in Munich, the cradle of the Nazi government, have banded together to form a group to fight for the truth: the White Rose. Risking everything to print and distribute leaflets calling for Germans to rise up against the evil permeating their country, the White Rose treads a knife’s edge of discovery by the Gestapo.

Annalise Brandt came to the University of Munich to study art, not get involved with conspiracy. The daughter of an SS officer, she’s been brought up to believe in the Führer’s divinely appointed leadership. But the more she comes to know Sophie and her friends, the more she questions the Nazi propaganda.

Soon Annalise joins their double life–students by day, resisters by night. And as the stakes increase, they’re all forced to confront the deadly consequences meted out to any who dare to oppose the Reich.

A gripping testament to courage, The White Rose Resists illuminates the sacrifice and conviction of an unlikely group of revolutionaries who refused to remain silent-no matter the cost.
About Amanda Barratt
ECPA best-selling author Amanda Barratt fell in love with writing in grade school when she wrote her first story–a spin-off of Jane Eyre. Now, Amanda writes romantic, historical fiction, penning stories of beauty and brokenness set against the backdrop of bygone eras not so very different from our own. She’s the author of over a dozen novels and novellas including The White Rose Resists: A Novel of the German Students Who Defied Hitler and My Dearest Dietrich: A Novel of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Lost Love.

Amanda lives in the woods of Michigan with her family, where she can be found reading way too many books, plotting her next novel, and jotting down imaginary travel itineraries for her dream vacation to Europe.

My Rating: 5 Stars!!!
‘Show me what to do. You, O Lord, are my only solace.’

I have studied the Holocaust for decades and when I saw the subject of Amanda Barratt’s newest book, I knew this would be interesting. The books is not directly a Holocaust related book, but indirectly.

‘What worth do you ascribe to freedom?

Amanda Barratt gives us the true story of Sophie Scholl and some of her fellow compatriots who acted to renounce Hitler and his ideas for Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. These young college students wrote and mailed/passed out leaflets in direct opposition to the Nazi regime.

‘What little I have to offer, I will give. No matter the cost.’

Barratt tells their story with writing so stellar it grabs your mind and refuses to let go. I knew the outcome of Sophie Scholl’s story before reading this book, and yet Barratt makes Sophie’s life and her friends’ lives come so alive! She puts you ‘in’ their lives. You feel their pain, their fear, their determination to try and make Germany a better place, a place free of a tyrant’s rule, a place where lives mattered and not just lives that tyrant thought were worthy.

‘Our instincts for evil have been nurtured. Once, acts of violence were condemned. Now, they’re condoned. As long as the targets those deemed deserving.’

Incredibly well written and heartrendingly told, this book will stay with you. It’s not a quick read. It takes time to absorb. While it is based on fact, parts are fictionalized but Barratt stays totally true to the facts. This book is impeccably researched and well worth reading. Bravo!

Sophie Shultz smiles at her future even when she doesn’t feel like it. After a lifetime of fearing she’d never fit in anywhere, she’s found a place to belong in the small town of Big Prairie.

It doesn’t take long for him to lose his heart as she fills the aching void life’s disappointments have left behind. But a feud with his wild brother has put him in a hard spot, pushing him to a decision that will ruin his relationship with many of Big Prairie’s citizens—and devastate Sophie. Before he can figure out how to tell her, someone tattles on his plans.

‘Grief and regret were never far from him. They walked beside him every day. Laid down with him at night.’

I find it hard to begin this review because the book was so powerfully moving. I’m afraid I can’t do it justice. But I must try. Becky Wade’s books have always moved me. One thing I appreciate about her writing is that she never shies away from the Gospel message. This right here is the stuff that ministers to her readers. I’ve read nearly every single book of hers at least twice, and some three times. This one is destined for the same thing.

‘Every day she prayed. And prayed. And continued to seek a peace she could not find.’

Genevieve Woodward comes back to her hometown in the Georgia mountains because of an anonymous letter she’s received about a secret in her parents’ past. Gen needs a break from her career as an acclaimed Bible study author, teacher and speaker and is burned out with even concealing a terrific secret of her own, one that could destroy her. She wakes up in an unfamiliar cottage to the owner staring down at her and she knows right then she must get help.

Sam Turner has carved out a life for himself on this historic farm and with owning a kitchen in town that caters to healthful eating. He’s content. He thinks. Sam is carrying such a load of sorrow and regret that he feels as if he’s drowning at times. But he’s disciplined himself to this life and he has no desire to allow Gen to intrude on his well ordered life. But he just can’t seem to turn away from her because she desperately needs help.

Becky Wade launches out into some very deep waters with this first novel in her new series, probing the depths of human emotion, bondages and grace. She writes with a depth that makes me weep, which I did frequently during this reading. She manages to create characters with emotions so well it’s hard to believe they are fictional people on pages. I read in wonderment at her talent for weaving a story so full and rich, a talent surely given by God. The emotions Stay With Me evoked in my heart were astoundingly powerful and there were times I simply had to put the book down and just ponder at the deep truths of God contained therein. Truly, this book was so incredibly deep, that I think it just may be Wade’s best work to date. Awestruck is a word that fits when you finish this book. It is not a book to be put aside and another picked up right away. It is a book that fills your mind and heart for days ahead and one that will probably never truly leave you. I was blessed beyond measure by the reading of this book. I very highly recommend it. It is headed to the top of my top reads list in 2020.

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘The goodness and rightness of Opal Gilbert overtook him. He didn’t ever want to let go.’

I am somewhat hesitant to try a new author, but when I took a chance on this one, I was certainly very glad I did. I loved absolutely everything about this book. Lowe has crafted characters that grabbed me right away. I love when that happens: you just immediately have a feel for them and they seem so real to you as you read. That’s what happened here. Opal and Lincoln are two characters that I will not soon forget. They came alive in my heart more with each chapter I read. I can’t wait to read the next two books in this series! This author has managed to put such a depth of emotion into these folks, even the secondary ones. I read this in less than a day, just couldn’t seem to tear myself away from it. And the author is a fellow South Carolinian, to boot. Her turns of phrase were very familiar to me. Well done! I highly recommend this book.

Book Review: ‘Carolina Breeze’ (Bluebell Inn) by Denise Hunter

About The Book:
A jilted bride. A struggling innkeeper. And a romantic mountain getaway that changes everything.

Rising Hollywood star Mia Emerson is looking for a safe place to land in the wake of a public breakup and scandal, and she finds it in the lake town of Bluebell, North Carolina—the location of her canceled honeymoon. She wants nothing more than to hide and wait for the tabloids to die down.

Soon after her arrival at the Bluebell Inn, Mia meets Levi Bennett, who runs the inn along with his two younger sisters. Drawn to one another from the start, Mia trusts Levi to keep her location from the press, and Levi confides in Mia about the financial state of the inn—a secret he’s been keeping from his sisters.

When Mia and Levi discover an old journal that hints at a rare diamond necklace hidden in the inn, they set off on a treasure hunt to find the long-lost heirloom. What they don’t expect to surface are feelings they thought were safely locked away. Mia and Levi must decide if falling in love again is too big a risk—or if it will uncover a treasure of its own instead.

This Bluebell Inn romance takes us to a quiet North Carolina retreat that holds more secrets than it shares.
About The Author:
Denise Hunter is the award-winning author of more than 30 novels, three of which have been made into Hallmark movies.

Denise writes heartwarming, small-town romances. Her readers enjoy the vicarious thrill of falling in love and the promise of a happily-ever-after sigh as they savor the final pages of her books.

Denise and her husband live in Indiana, where they raised three sons, and are currently enjoying an empty nest. In 1996, Denise began her first novel, writing while her children napped. Two years later it was published, and she’s been writing ever since. Her books contain a strong romantic element, and her husband says he provides all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too!
My Rating: 4 Stars!
Denise Hunter takes us back to North Carolina with her second novel in the Bluebell Inn series. This time we get Levi’s story. Levi and his sisters inherited the inn when their parents were tragically killed in an accident and it’s proving to be almost more than Levi can handle. He was asked by his dying father to take care of his sisters and he’s tried to do that, even keeping their precarious financial situation from them.

Then a jilted celebrity shows up for a honeymoon booking without the groom. Life suddenly changes for Levi when he begins to have feelings toward Mia Emerson. Mia reads an old journal from a previous owner, who happens to be her grandmother she never really knew and she and Levi discover there is an old and quite valuable blue diamond necklace that just probably is hidden inside this inn.

Hunter always gives her readers a swoon worthy hero and a find romance with great inspiration. I never grow tired of reading her books and they sit proudly on my shelves.

Book Review: ‘The Bounty Hunter’s Bargain’ by Lucette Nel

About The Book:
Jack Sullivan has a runaway wife to return and a bounty to collect. A gunshot lands him at the feet of Annabelle Lawson and jeopardizes a promise he can’t afford to break. Can he set aside his heart and focus on what he came to do?

Annabelle Lawson had finally picked up the fragments of her heart. Why did Jack have to crash back into her world? She may have to care for the injured bounty hunter, but she refuses to help him cash in on his professed ‘easy money’. Nor will there be a second chance at claiming her heart.
About Lucette Nel
Lucette Nel is a coffee addicted work-in-progress daughter of the Lord Almighty. She’s a mommy to a rambunctious boy and sweet baby girl and wife to her best friend and real-life hero. Along with a spoiled Pug, they make their home in Gauteng, the smallest of nine provinces in South Africa.

She works as a bookkeeper and uses every available second to create interesting characters in historical settings.
My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘Maybe he needed to go chase a few outlaws to get some of his sanity back.’

It’s been a good while since I’ve read one of Lucette Nel’s good stories, so when I saw this one was coming out, I was excited to get my reading on! I was not disappointed.

‘Goodness, why couldn’t the Lord have given him a face that resembled a horse?’

I love a good cowboy story. And Nel has created a doggoned good one here. Jack Sullivan is a wonderful hero as he plays his bounty hunter part to perfection. I connected with this character right away, which is something I love happen in a story. Abby Lawson was the same. She was fleshed out so well, and the secondary characters were also good. I loved every minute and read this in a few hours. Recommended.
