Review - Mercies in Disguise by JoAnn Carter

Abehind the scene look at The Roarin' Twenties Series ~ I have to let you in on a secret... I've been having a blast with this project! I'm thrilled at the release of the second book in this series, Mercies In Disguise. I think what has made this particular book so special to me is the setting. You see the Pine Barrens of New Jersey was where I grew up. I love the woods. I realize some city folks would get nervous following a seemingly never-ending dirt path, where every tree looks the same – tall and scrawny—but it's home to me. I've learned many lessons in the pines, but I think the most important is "looks can be deceiving." Now, I must admit, scrub pine trees aren't the most attractive trees in the world. In fact, they look as if a good wind could knock them over. However, it isn't what you see on the outside that's most important. Rather, it's what you can't see – their complex root system – which is crucial to not only their surv…

Monday’s Child must hide for protection...

When, Sara Barnes is thrown into the witness protection programme, she becomes the “wife” of Lt. Luke Nemec, an American cop on temporary assignment with the British police. Despite Luke’s American bravado, she finds he’s kind and considerate…

Review - Future Savior by Jennifer Hartz

Future Savior book 1 - Conception Blurb: "I do not think it is a question of where, but when." were the words that Charis left my mother with thirty years ago when I disappeared from Meric…before I was born. 
Shortly after being sent back I've been attacked by man-eating Vaipes. I've learned that my father was a power wielding Guardian. I've discovered that the silvery-blue eyes intriguing me my entire life belong to my Watcher, Shaw who is without a doubt the most handsome man I have ever seen. And somehow I need to stop a war mongering tyrant who can manipulate people's thoughts. 
So my question isn't where or when. It is how? How can I help the people of Meric when I can't stop myself from falling in love?
review: Christina's life while not exciting is full filling. A High School PE teacher she is amused when one of her students asks her to the High School Prom, although she knocks back the request she can't get his blue eyes out of her mi…

New release and review. Lesson in Lone Creek - Mary Manners

Blurb: Nick Merrill longs for adventure, and he finds it as one of the most highly-praised smoke jumpers on the West Coast. But when his best friend dies fighting a blaze, he returns to Lone Creek Ranch to shake off the loss. There he finds Sawyer Landon, a local middle school teacher who has a gift for reaching even the most difficult kids. When Sawyer asks him to speak at the school's annual Career Day, sparks fly. But Nick knows teaching and adventure are as polar opposite as it get--or are they?
Review: 5/5 Another winner from Mary Manners.
The third in the Lone Creek series doesn't disappoint. Nick, a smoke jumper, returns home after the death of his best friend. Asked to make a delivery of flyers for the ranch to the local school, he gets more than he bargained for in the form of teacher Sawyer and her foster son Alex.
This book doesn’t fail to delight. The wonderful characters pull you inside their story, making you a participant not a reader. Feeling what they do, you’re alo…

Review - By the light of the silvery moon by Tricia Goyer

Blurb:
Amelia Gladstone's hopes are tied up in the Titanic--hopes for a reunion with her sister and an introduction to an admirer. But when she offers a spare ticket to a down-and-out young man, her fate is about to change.

Quentin Walpole is stunned when a sweet lady secures his passage to America--and even more surprised to find his wealthy father and older brother on board the ship. Suddenly Amelia finds herself caught between the attentions of two men, but who should she entrust her heart to? As the fateful night arrives, will Amelia lose everything to the icy waters?

Review: In By the light of the silvery moon, Trica Goyer has penned a riveting novel that had me gripped from the opening pages. History comes to life in a compelling, spine chilling way. The reader knows the end of the story and the characters came to life in such a way that I almost didn't want to reach the end of the book. I found myself screaming at them to get off in Queenstown and not to carry on to New …

She finds temporary shelter, but it provides little relief from her constant fear. Desperate and alone, she considers an offer of protection from a stranger--but she soon learns he's harboring a potentially deadly secret.

Review: In a spine-tingling tale that pulls the reader in and doesn't leave them wanting, Ms. Davy keeps you on the edge of your seat in her newest release. It shows both sides of love and protection. She doesn't hide th…

Review - Gypsy's Game - Delia Latham

Gypsy's Game by Delia Latham


Blurb:
Gypsy Lovell stands to inherit an enormous amount of money from a father who never gave her anything but a ridiculous name. Even now, he doesn’t make it easy. A stipulation in the man’s will demands that Gypsy be married in order to claim what is hers. Desperate for the monetary windfall that could save her ailing mother’s life, Gypsy visits a Christian dating agency, hoping to find a temporary husband. Someone easy to handle for the required six months, and easy to get rid of when she no longer needs him.

Jal Garridan is neither of those things, but he's willing to take on the challenge presented by the beautiful stranger—on his own terms. What Gypsy doesn’t know is that Solomon’s Gate is a dating agency with a Divine connection. What she finds there may save more than her mother’s life. It may save Gypsy’s soul.

Review of Journey's Edge by Dora Hiers

Blurb:
A Routine Audit? Hardly.
Red flags—including some goon who's following her—raise McKinley Frasier's suspicions that numbers don't add up at the insurance firm. When someone tries to snatch McKinley's daughter from school, she turns to police officer and ex-fiance, Renner Crossman—the cop who walked out on her a month before their wedding. But Renner's not the same guy who broke her heart ten years ago. He calls himself a "new man." She trusts the new Renner with her daughter's safety...but what about her heart?


Meet Renner Crossman
Hey. Renner Crossman here. The new and improved version, not the old Renner, the jerk who seduced women, then dumped them. Walls painted white by God’s grace, I’m determined to set things right with people I’ve wronged in my life. Beginning with Kinny.
Beautiful, wholesome, pristine Kinny. Like springtime opening her arms wide after a long, harsh winter; n…
