Behind The Scenes by Jen Turano
Permilia was considered a wallflower. I beg to differ. She just didn't fit in with the society crowd. She was told she was a wallflower and she believed it. BEHIND THE SCENES she was bright, funny, inquisitive and very talented. She was loving and thoughtful.
Her stepmother continuously told her that she was odd and ackward. I
Permilia was true to herself and Asher Rutherford was very interested.
This book has it all- romance, mystery, and humor. I loved it.

The Farmer's Market Mishap by Wanda Brunstetter
Elma was on her own after her sister married. She was trying to keep her shop going, taking care of her home and being there for her pregnant sister. At times, she felt overwhelmed and so lonely. Was she destined to be a spinster? She adopted a cat and a stray dog but she wanted so much more.
At times, Elma was so envious of her sister. Elma prayed often and knew that GOD would bring her the answers. She needed to be patient.
I loved that Elma didn't settle for second best. She could have. Her sister tried to play matchmaker. Elma stood firm. Then a mishap happened at the farmer's market that changed her life.....was she willing to take a risk?
I loved this story. It is so refreshing to read about families who love each other and will do what it takes to take care of them. This story shows that at times we must make sacrifices for ones we love and that dreams can come true.
I always finish Ms. Brunstetter's books wanting more. Thank you for giving me so much enjoyment especially today as I travelling down a boring highway.

The Ebb Ride by Beverly Lewis
As you turn page after page, you are Sallie's growth. She is a dutiful daughter but she comes to the realization of who GOD wants her to be. It's not an easy decision.I
The Ebb Ride is the period between high and low tide. After Sallie visited the ocean I see her right in the middle of the ebb tide. She is trying to make the right decision. With prayer and much needed time, the decision was very clear to her.
I loved this book. I was quite surprised by the ending. Thank you, Beverly Lewis. Delightful journey to Cape May.
Trusting Grace by Maggie Brendan
But.... Robert Frazier comes to town looking for job. He is employed by Grace but he found much more.
I cheered when the bad guy was defeated and was delighted when Grace and Robert discovered that life doesn't always turn out the way you planned.
Trusting Grace was a wonderful book to escape in.....trust me.....you'll love it!!
FOR LOVE AND HONOR BY JODY HEDLUND
There hasn't been one Jody Hedlund's book that I haven't loved. She never disappoints. I never would have known this was a juvenile book without checking first.
This book centers around Bennet and Sabine. They each have a cross to bear. Bennet needs to save his ancestral home and belongings. Sabine has a secret that she cannot share with anyone.
With a little scheming, Bennet and Sabine are brought together. I enjoyed their banter back and forth and was surprised in the twist of the story at the end.
Sabine was caged like a bird. In order to be set free, she had to be open and allow herself to trust in the Lord that all will be ok.
Bennet learned that belongings and treasures really didn't make you rich. His relationship with his loved ones was what mattered.
Great story for a senior like me as well as the audience it was written for.
Once again, Ms. Hedlund entertained me with her excellent writing skills.
Jody Hedlund is a best-selling and award-winning author who loves fairy-tales and happily-ever-afters. She makes her home in Midland, MI with her husband and five teen-aged children. When she’s not writing another of her page-turning stories, you can usually find her sipping coffee, eating chocolate, and reading.

A Spring of Weddings
A short and sweet collection of unexpected love: One story is of a soon to be daughter-in-law and her fiance's mother and the other is about a couple doing a favor for their friends.
June is usually the time for weddings but in this collection Spring is the time for love. I loved both stories and quickly Was involved in the storyline.
A Proxy Wedding - Carly wasn't too thrilled to go on a car trip with a stranger. But this car trip changed her life.
Hope Beyond Savannah- Lily adored her fiance. But his mother was hard to get a long with. Will the marriage be called off? I loved that this story involved a family from Samoa.
Great read for the Spring..the time for renewal....where things come to life again. Enjoyed every moment. I will recommend this collection...
