Miracle in a Dry Season


What a lovely story. I read it in one day. I loved the main characters. It was a simple story with so much meaning in it. I highly recommend. I felt a range of emotions while reading this. We need more people like Casewell in the world.

I received this book free from Baker  Books to review.  I would have gladly paid for it.  I can't wait to read more by this wonderful author.

Surviving Henry

I just can't get into this book. I wish I could. I love dogs but I didn't find it funny. I love the cover picture.

Sarah Sundin's In Perfect Time

I loved it!  Sorry to see the end of the book.  I loved the characters, the plot and the history.  I was fortunate to read the whole series and I was never disappointed.  I can't recommend this highly enough.  Thank you for giving me a great read.  Can't wait to. Read anything else by Ms. Sundin!

A Match of Wits by Jen Turano

Just finished this book. It took me awhile to get into but once I got into a few chapters, I enjoyed it. It had humor and romance. I can see a sequel to this as it left some characters hanging......did Mr. Blackwell find love? How did the mine work out? Does Matilda find her soulmate? Just kidding, Matilda. It appears there was a book that preceded this one. I wish I read that one first and then this one.

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!

STUCK TOGETHER BY MARY CONNEALY

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.

New month.  June.  The month of my birth and my wedding anniversary.  I am celebrating my 7th wedding anniversary and will be 57 two days later.

We are celebrating by going on a cruise.  It is going to be fun!  

The Amish Twins Next Door

I loved Deborah and her two boys.  She thought her life was complete. She was convinced that GOD's plan was for her to remain single and...
