About The Book
Overcoming their differences

Could be the answer to all their problems

Bridget Connelly dreams of buying her boss’s veterinary clinic and starting her own business—but so does auditor Sawyer Blume. Despite her trust issues toward men, it’s hard to stay rivals when Sawyer’s traumatized daughter bonds with Bridget’s adorable pup. And when another buyer tries to outbid them both, working together might give them everything they want…including each other.

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

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘He grasped the indescribable experience of finding God on the other side of the darkness and realized that He had been there the whole time, carrying him through.’

I’d never read a book by this author before and I’m very glad I did, because one of the themes here ministered to a situation I’d been having in my own walk with the Lord. It was very well written and very God-honoring. The plot was a good one and the author knows how to flesh out a character well.

Lessons can be learned here, too. Sometimes things happen to us in life, hurtful, even devasting things. We can trust God through these things, or we can be bitter at Him for not rescuing us. But we need to remember this one thing: God can redeem ALL our hurts and sorrows and redirect our paths. This one is for the keeper shelf.

My thanks to the publisher and author for a copy of this book. The opinion in this review is entirely my own.

‘No Matter the Cost’ (The Epic Story of RJ and York, Book 3) by Susan May Warren

About The Book
She put her hand to her chest, still unable to breathe.
He had dark hair and a beard, ripped pants, a dirty suit coat and wore such an intense expression of pursuit on his face, she just knew—
He was going after Alan Martin.
And she might never see him again.
No. Not again.
Not ever again.
He passed her, didn’t even look at her, his gaze pinned on Martin, who’d vanished down the stairs.
And that’s when she found her voice. With everything inside her, she let it out, praying he heard it through his haze of fury.
“York!”



Her worst nightmare has happened….

RJ refuses to believe it, and until she has proof, she’s going to keep searching for answers. And most of all, for the man she loves, even if it means diving into the past he always wanted to keep secret.

The kind of secrets that could have set York free. It’ll take a trip back to Russia, to the sketchy and dark history of York’s life to find the clues to the sinister plans of a global terrorist. And the answers that might lead her to a happy ending.

Or has it? What if her happy ending is more than a dream?

If RJ hopes to save her country—and find out the truth about York—she’ll have to become the high-action, Sydney Bristow spy that she always dreamed of being. But really, does RJ really have what it takes—with, or without the man she loves—to save the world?

And if she does…what will be the cost?

The riveting conclusion to the Epic Story of RJ and York!

About Susan May Warren

Or maybe I’m an adventurer — having lived and traveled all over the world, including Siberia Russia as a missionary for eight years. Probably that’s why my characters can’t sit still, and seem to get into one scrape after another — they’re too much like me! I love God, my family, my country, my church, and feel privileged every day to be able to write stories.
Here’s my “Official” Bio.

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘Maybe that’s what this whole adventure had been about, frankly. Trusting God, not just for the end game, but for every step. When she couldn’t see her next step, when it all threatened to wash over her, pull her under. When all she could see was darkness.’

I really don’t even know how to begin this review. Not only for No Matter the Cost, but the entire three book series. I read each book in on day. I will never tire of reading a book by Susan May Warren. I love Christian fiction and I read it not only to read a good book, but to be blessed by the spiritual thread, and nobody does that better than her. I’ve always said that she takes me to church with her books. It’s true. This one, with one quote, ministered to me so much. I love when this happens!

RJ and York. What can I say? One of the best fictional couples ever, that’s what. The love Warren has crafted between these two is absolutely amazing to see on the pages of a book. She allows us to see inside their very souls. When I finished this last book in the series, I just I just sat there, my heart so incredibly full. Not to mention the absolutely terrifying action-packed scenes! I mean, how many times can a character escape danger? I’m a huge suspense fan and this is edge of your seat all the way, over the top! I was gasping so much, clutching my heart at other times. Well done!

These are for the keeper shelf and destined to be read over again and again. Bravo!

My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book. The opinion in this review is expressly my own.

My Rating: 4 Stars!
‘The Lord and I aren’t exactly on speaking terms.’

I loved the town of Hearts Bend, Tennessee when Rachel Hauck first invented it. It is one of those little places you want to visit and perhaps live in, even though you can’t cause it’s fictional. Hauck has teamed up with Mandy Boerma to take us back to this delightful place for another visit.

Ben Carter’s grandparents ran the old inn in Hearts Bend and now both have passed on, and Ben must make a decision about the inn. Should he stay on and try to run it, even though it’s in great need of improvements, or sell it and return to his high powered job out of the country? And there’s Cami, who spent summers at the inn with her mother, but hasn’t returned in fifteen years, and who had her first kiss from Ben Carter.

Lots of decisions must be made here by both these folks. And they are torn as to what those decisions will be. But both are trying to lean on the Lord for the wisdom to make the right decision. Can they do it?

Come on back to this delightful town and meet old friends, have your heart touched great by being here. You won’t regret it.

‘I Will Find You’ (The Epic Story of RJ and York, Book 2) by Susan May Warren

About The Book
He released a sound, deep inside, part growl, part acquiescence. “Ruby Jane. You are going to be the death of me.”
“No. Not anymore. I’ve learned my lesson.”
He cocked his head.
Maybe because yes, she’d said that before, but this time — “I never again want to look out into the dark sky and wonder where you are, and if you’re alive. Never want to be more than a phone call away from you. Never want to think that you might…might think that I don’t love you.”
He blinked. Then, finally, finally, he smiled. And it was sunshine, right to her soul.
“Do you…do you still have my ring?”
He nodded and reached into the front pocket of his jeans.
How it remained untarnished, she hadn’t a clue, but there it was, still gorgeous. A beautiful vintage two carat white gold solitaire, with tiny diamonds in the cradle.
“York —”
“Just put it on your finger and keep it there.”
“You’re so bossy.” But she held out her hand for him to put it on her finger.
“I should put a tracker in it.”
She looked at him. “No need. I’m not going anywhere.”
He smiled again, a softness in his eyes that made her want to weep. “Not without me, you’re not.”



The woman he loves has vanished…

When RJ Marshall said she’d be right back, York should have objected. No, he wasn’t going to let her run off to Berlin, even if it was to save a little girl.

Only problem—she’d told him this while he was unconscious. So really, it doesn’t count, and it’s not his fault that she’s gone missing. And, he didn’t know why he expected RJ not to chase danger into trouble. But now he has to find her before criminal mastermind Alan Martin tracks her down.

She’s in over her head…

RJ didn’t mean to leave York behind, but she’s on a mission to save a little girl caught in the crossfire of Martin’s terrorist plot. Now, she’ll have to find the girl and keep her safe while leaving clues for York to follow her.

But who will catch up to her first—York, or the man with a vendetta?

The gripping romantic adventure continues across Europe in this second installment of the Epic Story of RJ and York!

Continue the adventure!

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘You don’t have to have special skills to be a hero. You just have to do what’s right, despite the cost.’

Wow!!! I could put dozens of exclamation points behind that word. This books is that good. Seriously. If you’ve not read any of Susan May Warren’s books, you do not know what you are missing. This series plays off her Montana Marshalls series, particularly the story of Ruby Jane. Ruby Jane, RJ, to everyone, and her wonderful fella, York, have gotten their own series here and it is outstanding!

Warren has created a powerful story for these two, who will just absolutely worm their way right down deep in your heart. Their love is epic, just as the secondary title says. But they also attract danger like a magnet. RJ in particular attracts danger. Wait. She kinda, sorta runs towards it. And then York has to rescue her. And let me tell you, that the danger here will keep you on the edge of your seat with your heart jerking out of your chest.

There is so much to love here. I read it in one day, could barely tear myself away to make supper for my husband. I am a forever fan of Susan May Warren and with each book she writes, that solidifies even more. Well done!

My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book. The opinion in this review is entirely my own.

‘Sometimes dying was the only way to give life.’

I just love Jody Hedlund’s medieval series. She has quite a few and I devour them the moment I get them. This fifth offering in her Knights of Brethren series is so good. The item the knights are seeing now is the Holy Light. And it’s quite a story. It would be too easy to give a spoiler, so I won’t say too much, but it certainly captivated me. I can’t wait for the last in the series! So exciting!

‘Forged in Steele’ (Steele Guardians) by Susan Sleeman

About The Book
When a baby goes missing…
The ink was barely dry on the contract Bristol Steele had signed for Steele Guardians to provide security for a metro hospital when a baby is abducted from the birthing center. Horrified and devastated for the family, Bristol puts everything in her life aside to find the abducted child and return the baby to her devastated parents. But when FBI Agent Jared Wolfe steps in and tries to shut down her efforts, Bristol isn’t prepared for the emotions that resurface from their long-ago summer romance.
She’ll risk everything, even her life.
Bristol can’t back down and soon finds herself working alongside Jared. She struggles to make sure her growing feelings for him aren’t a distraction, but as she tugs at Jared’s heart and he makes his feelings clear, she’s not sure she’s succeeding. Maybe she does need to back off for the good of the missing baby, but that might leave her company’s reputation in the dirt and proving her abilities to her father has always been her driving force.

‘He didn’t want to go through losing a child due to leaked information. Never again.’

Once again, Susan Sleeman has proven that she is tops in the genre of Christian suspense. Her characters are always well crafted, her plots fascinating, and her execution of the written word flawless.

This time, Bristol Steele and her family of former law enforcement officers are after someone who has brazenly stolen a baby right out of a hospital room. Bristol must work with FBI agent Jared Wolfe, who still holds her heart after a many years ago ghosting of her.

Sleeman adds layer upon layer to a story that is already action-packed and we are completely entertained throughout. Well done!

‘Out Of The Night’ (The Epic Story of RJ and York, Book 1) by Susan May Warren

About The Book
See, this was why York should put a GPS tracker on the woman he loved.
Not that he would, but if he did, then he wouldn’t show up in a town and see said woman trying to do a Spiderman along the face of a building.
And, if York hadn’t simply followed his instincts and taken off across the street she would have left an ugly splat on the sidewalk, probably taking out a planter of geraniums.
As it were—“Gotcha.”
He wasn’t trying to be cute—it was more of a statement of relief, even fury, the spill over of watching her dangle, then slip off the balcony. The fear he wouldn’t reach her in time.
For a second, she just stared at him, also breathing hard, those blue eyes blinking in disbelief. Then, “York?”
“It’s not Superman.”
Then she threw her arms around him, holding so tight she might cut off his breathing. “You’re here.”
“I’m here.” She could probably feel his heart pounding, trying to leave his body.
“How did you find me?”


A steal-your-breath, fast-paced adventure from a master! Be prepared to have your heart warmed and ripped out at the same time! Warren’s skilled craftsmanship pits an indefatigable RJ and rugged York against daunting enemies in this nonstop action and heart-pounding extension of the Montana Marshalls that we all love. Feed your kids, walk your dog, and grab a drink because once you dive in, there’s no escaping! ~Ronie Kendig, bestselling and award-winning author

“The best parts of an action movie mixed with the best kind of romance. My heart is still pounding. You don’t want to miss this series!” ~Lisa Phillips, USA Today bestselling author


He’s not looking for trouble…

All former spy and current national security agent York Newhouse wants is to propose to the woman he loves, RJ Marshall. Then they can move to Shelly, Washington, and start the calm, safe life he’s been dreaming of for over a year.

Too bad trouble doesn’t agree…

Or maybe RJ simply attracts trouble because she’s just going out for coffee when she spots a wanted, known terrorist standing in the middle of a street in Paris. At least she thinks it’s international criminal Alan Martin, the mastermind behind a plot to kill the president.

But he’s in jail, right?

Wrong. Martin has escaped, and it’s up to RJ—and York—to keep him in their sights until he can be apprehended. But chasing down Martin means following him into the darkness of whatever plot he’s cooked up now.

Will he ever outrun trouble to find his happy ending?

So much for York’s epic proposal. Now, he just wants to escape Europe with their lives.

The romantic trilogy ignites in book of the Epic Story of RJ and York!

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘It’s the way of evil. It is unrelenting. And the fight is always there. Our job is to just fight the battles we’re assigned to fight.’

When I heard that Susan May Warren had written a series with more adventures of RJ and York, I was so excited! I loved their story in her previous Montana Marshalls series. So much. Two characters that just leapt off the pages were RJ and York.

‘Living Water To Refresh Your Soul’ by Tracy L. Smoak

About The Book

“I really enjoyed this little devotional book. . . .
The spiritual lesson is valuable to the believer’s walk with Christ.”
~Susan Snodgrass, Christian book reviewer

God is in the details and can be found in even the smallest elements in nature. Just imagine. A flower as intricate as a marigold or a lake reflection of guardian trees—both as mysterious as their Creator. Yet God cares deeply for you, the only creation made in his image.

In this world of shifting sand, we need something beautiful to ground us in the present, and author Tracy L. Smoak brings tranquility with her pictorial devotional Living Water.

If you love nature, this book will refresh your soul. With thirty photographs of inspiring water scenes in Lake County, Florida, you’ll revel at the beauty of God’s design. The affirming Bible verses, prayers, and faith steps will calm and comfort you.

“Tracy L. Smoak, a talented wordsmith and photographer, created a refreshing devotional for those seeking a respite from the noise and chaos of this world. Her original pictures capture the beauty of God’s creations and bring joy to the weary soul.”
~Robin Revis Pyke, author of Your Identity in Christ: Who You Are and Whose You Are

As a licensed English instructor with a master’s in Education, my passion is connecting people with God, particularly when they face challenging times.
In addition to writing, my adventures include racing horses in orange groves, teaching men in a maximum-security prison, and sharing Bible stories inside a ger in Outer Mongolia.
I love flower gardening and eating chocolate. Please check out the blog devotions to comfort and challenge you with Bible passages relevant to what you need today.”
4 Stars!
I really enjoyed this little devotion book. Each devotion consists of a verse or two of scripture, a precious and most approproate prayer and a Faith Step.
This last one is a great way to keep the devotion fresh in your mind and help you accomplish the goal of the devotion. Then there is a beautiful photo that pertains to the devotion in some way.
This is not a deep and long devotion. Let me take back that ‘deep’ part. One sentence, one word of Scripture, can be deep spiritually. God can move mightily in just one word. This is not a long devotional. It can easily be done in a minute or two, not counting the time you will want to take to ponder it. And it is a good thing to ponder on this throughout the day. The spiritual lesson is a great one, too, and very valuable to the believer’s walk with Christ.
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. The opinion here is entirely my own.

‘Crossfire’ (Extreme Measures, Book 2) by Lynette Eason

FBI special agent Julianna Jameson is a top-notch negotiator who has never lost a hostage. Surely she can manage to take care of her much younger sister, Dottie, who showed up unannounced to live with Julianna while she finished her senior year of high school.

A former sniper with the 75th Ranger Regiment, Clay Fox left the army after a tragic incident that he can’t get past. Now he’s working as a high school resource officer until he can figure out what to do with the rest of his life.

Their paths cross when Julianna is called in to negotiate a courtroom hostage situation involving Clay’s sister. Impressed and a bit intimidated by the calm, capable woman with the dark hair and blue eyes, Clay invites her to speak at his school. Dottie’s school.

But as the anniversary of a school shooting from Julianna’s past approaches, it becomes clear that her perfect record is about to be tested and that Dottie is at risk. If Julianna and Clay can’t figure out who’s behind the attacks, more innocent people will die–and Dottie is next in line.

This intense story of revenge and redemption from bestselling author and master of suspense Lynette Eason will have you up all night as you race toward the explosive finish.

‘Honestly, if he thought God would listen, he’d discard his pride and pray.’

Lynette Eason kicked off her Extreme Measures series in a powerful way and she continues with this second offering. She gives us a great plot, believable characters, and enough action to keep her readers captivated throughout. Then, as if that weren’t enough, Eason throws in a ‘no-one-saw-this coming’ twist, total surprise here, then tops it with another one! Absolutely riveting! Completely blew me away. This book was just great. Well done!
