Captured By Love by Jody Hedlund

Great story about Mackinaw Island in 1814.  I really enjoyed this book.  I loved the characters and their story.  I appreciated a lot more of the story as I have been to some of the places that were mentioned in the book.  I highly recommend this book to others that enjoy historical romance.

Reading while cruising

We just got back after a wonderful vacation cruising to Bahamas.  I made sure I packed a few essentials which included books and magazines.  I read quite fast so I can go through quite a few in a week.  I remember one vacation that I read everything that I had with me.  I had to search for a bookstore to add to my loot.

This trip I read Don Piper's book - 90 Minutes in Heaven.  I enjoyed the book.  I could have read much more about the 90 minutes than the people he met after he started telling people about it.  I felt good after reading this book and look forward to seeing my Dad and Grandparents.

Love Comes Home- A book I really enjoyed

Just finished Love Comes Home by Ann H. Gabhart.  I was given this book to read and preview but I would have gladly bought this.

Loved it!   I enjoyed every character in this book.  I cried when they cried and smiled when they smiled.  I appreciate Kate and her husband's devotion to each other through their sad ordeal.  So often you see families ripped apart when they go through this (trying not to spoil plot).  It makes me want to read more about this family.  It turned out to be "a feel good " book when you finished reading it.  I received this book free to read and review.  Wow.....what a treat!

I received this book for free from Bethany to review! I didn't read the previous books so that put me at a disadvantage. I enjoyed reading this as I am a Social Worker by trade and it went into detail how these two individuals were scared as children and how they healed. I was also impressed that they dealt with dementia and mental illness. This book had adventure, romance, humor and drama. You become attached to the characters and their struggles. I love reading Christian Romance and this fit the ticket. I recommend this if you enjoy Christian Fiction and westerns. I look forward to reading more of Mary Connealy's books.

Love on a Whim

I don't know anyone who doesn't love ice-cream.  My favorite is butter pecan.  But after reading  this story, double-fold vanilla so...
