‘The Premonition at Withers Farm’ by Jaime Jo Wright

About The Book
It’s rare when a book carries me so deep inside its world that I forget I’m reading. Buy this book. Now. You’ll absolutely love it.”–JAMES L. RUBART, Christy Hall of Fame author

The voices of the past cannot stay silent forever.

In 1910 Michigan, Perliett Van Hilton is a self-proclaimed rural healer, leaving the local doctor convinced she practices quackery. It doesn’t help that her mother is a spiritualist who regularly offers her services to connect the living with their dearly departed. But when Perliett is targeted by a superstitious killer, she must rely on both the local doctor and an intriguing newcomer for assistance.

In the present day, Molly Wasziak’s life has not gone the way she dreamed. Facing depression after several miscarriages, Molly is adapting to her husband’s purchase of a peculiar old farm. A search for a family tree pulls Molly deep into a century-old murder case and a web of deception, all made more mysterious by the disturbing shadows and sounds inside the farmhouse.

Perliett fights for her life, and Molly seeks renewed purpose for hers as she uncovers the records of the dead. Will their voices be heard, or will time forever silence their truths?

“A tale of intoxicating menace, eerie elegance, and satisfying suspense.”BOOKLIST starred review of The Souls of Lost Lake

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘The dead don’t speak. They don’t talk. They don’t interact with the living.’

I sometimes wonder how the mind of Jaime Jo Wright works. Her stories are just so entrancing. She does them in split time form and each time period is incredibly captivating. It’s hard to tear yourself away for necessary tasks. You just cannot wait to see what is going to happen next in each time period, because they are linked. I was so totally caught up in this story and never suspected the things that wrapped it up. So well done!

‘Falling For The Cowgirl’ (Colorado Cowboys, Book # 4) by Jody Hedlund

About The Book
Years ago, he shattered her heart. Now she must trust him with her life.

As the only girl in her family, and with four older brothers, Ivy McQuaid can rope and ride with the roughest of ranchers. She’s ready to have what she’s always longed for–a home of her own. She’s set her heart on a parcel of land south of Fairplay and is saving for it with her winnings from the cowhand competitions she sneaks into–but her dream is put in jeopardy when the man she once loved reappears in her life.

After two years away, Jericho Bliss is back in South Park as an undercover Pinkerton agent searching for a war criminal. He has no intention of involving a woman in the dangerous life he leads, but one look at Ivy is all it takes for him to question the path he’s set out for himself.

Even though Jericho tries to resist his longtime attraction to the beautiful and vivacious Ivy, he finds himself falling hard and fast for her. In the process, his worst fear comes true–he puts her smack-dab in the middle of danger. With Ivy’s life in the balance, will Jericho give her up once again, or will he find a way back to her, this time forever?

I love this series. Jody Hedlund brings us the McQuaid family and here we are with Ivy’s story. Ivy, who is rambunctious and always getting in trouble. And enter Jericho Bliss, back again after a two year absence. Jericho, who has loved Ivy for years. And she loves him. But they’ve never admitted it to each other. Now Jericho is a Pinkerton agent searching for a desperate criminal and is determined not to letting Ivy close to his heart. Good luck with that.

Hedlund is a dab hand at a cowboy story. She switches genres effortlessly and I love every one she does. This series has been great and there is yet one to come. I can’t wait for it! I loved the spiritual thread here. Well done!

‘Where The Blue Sky Begins’ by Katie Powner

About The Book
“Katie Powner’s engaging story will pull you in and leave you in wonder at that deep, blue sky.”–CHRIS FABRY, author and radio host

Sometimes the hardest road of all is the road home.

When confident and handsome Eric Larson is sent to a rural Montana town to work in the local branch of his uncle’s financial company, he’s determined to exceed everyone’s expectations, earn a promotion, and be back in Seattle by the end of summer. Yet nothing could prepare him for the lessons this small town has in store.

At forty-six years old, eccentric and outspoken Eunice Parker has come to accept her terminal illness and has given herself one final goal: seek forgiveness from everyone on her bucket list before her time runs out. But it will take more courage than she can muster on her own.

After an accident pushes Eric and Eunice together, the unlikely pair is forced to spend more time with each other than either would like, which challenges their deepest prejudices and beliefs. As summer draws to a close, neither Eric nor Eunice is where they thought they would be, but they both wrestle with the same important question: What matters most when the end is near?

About Katie Powner
Katie Powner is an award-winning author who lives in Montana, where cows still outnumber people. She writes contemporary fiction about redemption, relationships, and finding the dirt road home. Katie is a mom to the third power (biological, adoptive, and foster) who believes every child deserves a loving family. Visit http://www.katiepowner.com.

My Rating: 4 Stars!
‘God? I’m scared.’

This was my first time reading a Katie Powner book and it was very moving. When Eric Larsen is sent to a very, very small town by his uncle to handle some things in one branch of the family business, he is horrified to find a town that the GPS can’t even find. A town so small that there is not a decent cup of coffee to be had, and no health food. His next door neighbor is a seemingly curmudgeon of a woman who pounces on him and demands that he drive her to places so she can hopefully make things right with people she’s offended. Eric is counting the days until his time is over in this place and he can leave. But what Eric doesn’t understand is that he is about to embark on one of the most meaningful journeys of his life. A journey he didn’t even expect in his wildest imaginations, but one that will change his entire life.

Powner brings together the folks of this town in such a way that it impacts the reader’s heart fully. Sometimes we learn most when we think we are in a hard place. Her way of crafting these characters and their lives resounded within me so much. The character of Eunice is one I won’t soon forget. And the ending is such a sweet surprise. Very moving and well written, this is one for the keeper shelf.

‘The Belle of Belgrave Square’ by Mimi Matthews

About The Book
A London heiress rides out to the wilds of the English countryside to honor a marriage of convenience with a mysterious and reclusive stranger.

Tall, dark, and dour, the notorious Captain Jasper Blunt was once hailed a military hero, but tales abound of his bastard children and his haunted estate in Yorkshire. What he requires now is a rich wife to ornament his isolated ruin, and he has his sights set on the enchanting Julia Wychwood.
For Julia, an incurable romantic cursed with a crippling social anxiety, navigating a London ballroom is absolute torture. The only time Julia feels any degree of confidence is when she’s on her horse. Unfortunately, a young lady can’t spend the whole of her life in the saddle, so Julia makes an impetuous decision to take her future by the reins—she proposes to Captain Blunt.
In exchange for her dowry and her hand, Jasper must promise to grant her freedom to do as she pleases. To ride—and to read—as much as she likes without masculine interference. He readily agrees to her conditions, with one provision of his own: Julia is forbidden from going into the tower rooms of his estate and snooping around his affairs. But the more she learns of the beastly former hero, the more intrigued she becomes…

My Rating: 5 Stars!
When I discovered the books written by Mimi Matthews, she had a back list. I loved her work so much that I had that back list read quickly. Sometimes you come across an author whose work pulls you in immediately and doesn’t let you go even after you have finished the book. Matthews is such an author. She has the unique ability to craft characters that very nearly live and breathe as they walk off the pages and into your heart. I was captivated from the first paragraph and couldn’t wait to finish! I love it when a book dies this to me. One thing that will cause me to set a book aside is wooden characters. There is certainly no need to fear this in a book by Mimi Matthews!! Not even a slight chance. Well done!

‘Defending Honor’ (Elite Guardians) by Lynette Eason and Kelly Underwood

About The Book
She trusts no one…

Bodyguard Laila Rabbinowitz is all business. Tough and stoic, she was the perfect Mossad agent…until a terrible betrayal led to her worst nightmare. Being a bodyguard with the Elite Guardians allows her to keep her heart safe—she’ll never get involved with a client, never let anyone close enough to betray her again. And she’s certainly not going to trust anyone who doesn’t earn it.

He needs protection…

Billionaire Preston Whittaker walked away from his famous family after a terrible event, but he’s put that behind him—or so he thinks. When his father and brother are killed in a suspicious boating accident, he must take the helm of the family business and carry on the family legacy. But someone doesn’t want him at the helm. They want him dead.

She’ll have to pretend to be his wife to save his life…

Enter the Elite Guardians. Preston is going to need someone by his side 24/7, and the only solution is…a fake marriage. Laila needs to pull off acting as the trophy wife to the country’s most eligible bachelor. With the eyes of the paparazzi on them, she’ll have to convince everyone that she and Preston are in love.

But what will it cost her heart?

Preston’s reputation as a party playboy precedes him, and Laila doesn’t belong in his world filled with parties and money. But is there more to Preston Whittaker that the world doesn’t see? Maybe, in time, he’s someone Laila could learn to trust. Only problem is, the danger is closer than they both know…and time is running out.

Book three of the riveting, high-octane world of the Elite Guardians reboot!

About Kelly Underwood

Kelly Underwood’s favorite things are reading, writing, and drinking coffee. She was born in New Hampshire, but don’t ask her about snow, because she’s been a Florida girl since she was twelve. She writes book reviews for her blog bestinsuspense.com and is an active member of the Central Florida chapter of the American Christian Fiction Writers. She’s a sucker for a good suspense novel, the kind you have to read cover-to-cover until the mystery is solved and the bad guys are in handcuffs. If you’re looking for her, she’s probably on her back patio with a Kindle in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other.

My Rating: 5 Stars!

‘How many times would he narrowly miss falling into this killer’s death grip?’

I have thoroughly been enjoying this series, the extension of Lynette Eason’s Elite Guardians. She has teamed up with Kelly Underwood this go round, and they have created a great story. Action abounds as a man’s life is constantly being threatened. No place he goes is safe.

Suspects are plentiful. The culprit was a big surprise for me, though, and one I never guessed. Plus, there was an amazing spiritual thread moment that blew my mind. I loved it!

‘A Seaside Wonder’ (A Muir Harbor Novel, Book 2) by Melissa Tagg

About The Book
In one evening, Indi’s world falls apart. Enter the shy professor her family mistakes for her fiancé…make that ex-fiancé.

Professor Philip West never wanted to return to Maine . . . or his grandfather’s miserable old house. But after his mother’s death, he’s now the guardian of a teenage stepsister he barely knows—one who doesn’t want anything to do with him. He longs to help her heal, but he’s exhausted and numb, desperate for relief of his own. Maybe that’s why he’s so easily distracted when he happens upon the little shop with a name on its storefront window that sounds familiar, a hint of a mystery nudging him inside.

More than a decade has passed since Indi Muir made the heartbreaking decision she’s never recovered from—though she’s certainly tried. She has a full life running her shop and creating the artsy pieces that fill its shelves. If she can just stay busy, she’ll keep her hurt and regret at bay. But when her ex-fiancé returns to Muir Harbor, he brings news that shatters her carefully built walls. Things only get worse when lurking danger comes calling at her childhood home.

The one bright spot amid Indi’s turmoil is the shy stranger who wandered into her shop months ago and his moody but lovable sister. As she confronts her past and the mysterious threat facing her family, she’s intent on helping Philip win over his sister. He just might win over Indi, too, if they can overcome old secrets and wounds, outrun rising peril . . . and take a chance on love.

Breathtaking romance, a captivating mystery, and an enchanting wintry seaside . . . return to Muir Harbor in bestselling author Melissa Tagg’s latest.

My Rating: 5 Stars!
‘You are not a mess. God sees what you’re becoming. He sees the beauty you already are. He’s not in a hurry and you don’t have to be, either.’

Every time I read a Melissa Tagg novel, I immediately want the next. She’s so good! I’ve been a fan since I read her first. She is unique in that she makes you ‘feel’ her stories. I love it when a book impacts me that way. Not just a good read, but a heart-moving story that settles in deep down and refuses to leave. Boy, I loved this book so much!

Tagg tackles some difficult questions here spiritually and I totally got where she was coming from. Life with Christ is not always easy. But we have a good, good Father who loves us. These characters have hard stuff in their lives and I loved seeing how they handled them.

Now, there is a mystery that has been running through the last two books and it’s not quite solved it. A bit of it was revealed here, but I’m still dying to know what happens! There is another book in the series, though, so maybe I won’t have to wait too awfully long. And there was some mighty good stuff going on in this one. I was weeping, gasping, smiling, laughing. So very good and honestly, deserves more than the five allowable stars. Highly recommended.

The only person who can identify the key players, Lynda gets assigned to take part in a joint operation in Istanbul to take the organization down.

With a cargo bay’s worth of hurt and baggage between them, these two consummate professionals must play their parts perfectly if they hope to stop those responsible for bombing oil pipelines, killing innocent civilians, and threatening to destabilize the oil markets. But love long buried has a way of resurfacing at the most inopportune times–and protecting Lynda has become Bill’s primary focus.

‘War did not walk onto a battlefield in uniform in a way that allowed him to pick them out as bad guys.’

My second book by this author and I loved it so much. These soldiers here are true heroes and I so very much enjoyed how they operated as a team. Also, add in a female protagonist FBI agent and learning more how they themselves operate made for a wonderful read for my suspense loving self. Bridgeman also writes a very God honoring story and I appreciated the spiritual thread so much. One point in particular I loved very much. Well done!

‘Body of Evidence’ (Triple Threat, 3) by Irene Hannon

About The Book
Forensic pathologist Grace Reilly has seen her share of unusual deaths in rural Missouri. But when she begins to notice a curious pattern in autopsies of elderly residents whose demise appears to be natural, she takes her concerns to Sheriff Nate Cox.

Nate is skeptical about the link Grace is seeing between the deaths–and her suspicions of foul play. But her persistence is compelling. Once she finally convinces him her theory is credible and they join forces to investigate, danger follows. Because exposing the truth could destroy several lives–including Grace’s.

Queen of inspirational romantic suspense Irene Hannon closes out her bestselling Triple Threat series with this gripping tale of secrets revealed and romance sparked.

About Irene Hannon

My Rating: 4 Stars

I never miss an Irene Hannon book and have been a fan for many years. She concludes her Triple Threat series with this one, the best of the bunch, in my opinion. People are dying, older folks, of natural causes. Or so it seems. A forensic pathologist and a county sheriff are trying to discover why so many are dying so close together.

Hannon always adds layers with each chapter, and I love discovering more in this fashion. She crafts believable characters and plots that are spot on interesting. I couldn’t tear myself away. And I had no idea who the culprit was. A total surprise. Well done!
