The Imposter by Suzanne Woods Fisher from Revell

The Imposter

by Suzanne Woods Fisher

A heart once deceived should not be easily fooled again . . .

Katrina Stoltzfus thought she had life and love all figured out: she was going to marry John and live happily ever after. But as her plans crumble before her eyes, she struggles to face an uncertain future. When a widow asks for help starting a new business, Katrina quickly agrees. She needs time to heal her broken heart, to untangle her messy life, to find a purpose.

What she doesn’t need is attention from Andy Miller, a farmhand who arrives at the widow’s farm just when help is most needed–and who always seems to say the right thing and be in the right place, at the right time. Is Andy for real or too good to be true? She’s been deceived once before, and she isn’t planning on experiencing it again.

Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Stoney Ridge for a tale of love, uncertainty, and trusting God to write your story.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

WOW! This book is awesome! It took me a while to get into another book after reading this one!  To say that Nikki Boyd worked overtime on finding her missing sister was an understatement. Nikki lived and breathed anything that had to do with her sister who has been missing for ten years. When she is given the case of another young girl, Nikki knows she can’t stop until this criminal is found.

Lisa Harris takes readers on a while goose chase trying to figure out who is behind these kidnappings.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Two murders have rocked the city of Houston. Are they the work of a serial killer, or is a copycat trying to get away with murder?

That is the question facing Special Agent Bethany Sanchez, who is eager for her new assignment in violent crimes but anxious about meeting her new partner. Special Agent Thatcher Graves once arrested her brother, and he has a reputation for being a maverick. Plus, their investigative styles couldn’t be more opposite: he operates on instinct, while she goes by the book.

When hot leads soon fizzle out, their differences threaten to leave them deadlocked. But an attempt on their lives turns up the heat and brings them closer together, and a third victim might yield the clue that will help them zero in on a killer. This could be the case of their careers . . . if they can survive long enough to solve it.

The Splendor of Ordinary Days

by Jeff High

The-Splendor-of-Ordinary-Days

The pastoral charm of small-town Watervalley, Tennessee, can be deceptive, as young Dr. Luke Bradford discovers when he’s caught in the fallout of a decades-old conflict.

After a rocky start as Watervalley’s only doctor, Luke Bradford has decided to stay in town, honoring the three-year commitment he made to pay off his medical school debts. But even as his friendships with the quirky townsfolk deepen, and he pursues a romance with lovely schoolteacher Christine Chambers, several military veterans’ emotional wounds trigger anger and unrest in Watervalley.

At the center of the clash is the curmudgeonly publisher of the local newspaper, Luther Whitmore. Luther grew up in Watervalley, but he returned from combat in Vietnam a changed man. He fenced in beautiful Moon Lake, posting “Keep Out” notices at the beloved spot, and provokes the townspeople with his incendiary newspaper.

As Luke struggles to understand Luther’s past, and restore harmony in Watervalley, an unforeseen crisis shatters a relationship he values dearly. Suddenly Luke must answer life’s toughest questions about service, courage, love, and sacrifice.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

This is the first book I’ve read by Jeff High and I enjoyed it very much. I enjoy his writing style and humor throughout the book. The characters were well developed and believable. Dr. Luke was an interesting and likeable character, his curiosity kept me interested in the book. He had a way with the neighbors that made them like him. A lot of secrets caused tension, which caused problems between the community and the plain community that was nearby. I liked the ending, the author did an amazing job of pulling the story together for an heartwarming end. I highly recommend this book for those who enjoy a good, relaxing read.

Litfuse Presents…….Valley of Decision by Lynne Gentry

Valley of Decision 

by Lynne Gentry

Valley of DecisionEvery choice has a consequence in the explosive conclusion to the Carthage Chronicles as Lisbeth returns to third-century Carthage for a thrilling final adventure.

Thirteen years ago, Lisbeth made an impossible decision—leave third-century Carthage and her husband Cyprian behind for good. She knew it was to protect her daughter Maggie, so Lisbeth gathered the strength to move on with her life.

All these years, Lisbeth has thrown herself into her work and raising her headstrong daughter, all to live up to the promise she made to Cyprian. But Maggie is sick of being protected. In an act of teenage rebellion Maggie decides to do what her mother can’t—secretly returning to the third century on a quest to bring her father back, leaving Lisbeth no choice but to follow.

With Maggie’s surprise arrival in Carthage, chaos ensues. She finds her grandmother on trial for murder and attempts to save her, but instead the diversion sparks a riot that nearly destroys the plagued city. Only one thing will appease the wrath of the new proconsul of Carthage: the death of the instigator.

Will Lisbeth arrive in time to save her daughter from the clutches of Rome? How can God possibly redeem such a slew of unwise decisions and deep regrets? Filled with heart-wrenching twists and riveting action, Valley of Decision brings the romantic adventure epic, The Carthage Chronicles, to an electrifying conclusion.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Valley of Decision was a really nice and fitting ending to this three book series. We get a closer look at Lisbeth and her daughter Maggie, and watch her strong willed Maggie grow up. This book was very well written, and the characters are real and people you would like to know. My only problem was trying to stay focused going back and forth between the third and 20th century. But the romance, the wonderful love story between Lisbeth and Cyprian and the decisions, good and bad that had to be made, along with the many twist and turns throughout, you will not want to put this book down.

Promises to Cherish

by

Elizabeth YountABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Elizabeth Byler Younts is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers. She is an Air Force officer’s wife and a homeschooling mom with two young daughters. She makes her home wherever her family is stationed. Elizabeth was Amish as a child and after her parents left the church she still grew up among her Amish family and continues to speak Pennsylvania Dutch.

ABOUT THE BOOK

As World War II draws to a close, nurse Christine falls in love with roguish Amish boy Eli and must choose between a new, uncertain life in the Amish faith or face the judgment of a conservative postwar American society for her past mistakes.

It’s 1945, and Christine Freeman is a nurse at Hudson River State Hospital, where she works alongside members of a Civilian Public Service unit. Eli is one of the conscies—conscientious objectors to the war—and he is doing his best to become a man of character instead of the immature heartbreaker he used to be back home in his Amish community.

Christine and Eli are friendly, but when an old acquaintance, Jack, returns home from the war, Christine’s world is violently turned upside down. Eli, heartbroken to see his friend so hurt, offers her an escape within his Amish community. Despite her misgivings, Christine is fully embraced by Eli’s community. She slowly begins to feel valued and loved as she learns the Amish way of life.

Christine finds herself falling for Eli. But soon, the abusive Jack discovers Christine in her Amish hideaway and starts causing trouble for the quiet community. Christine can’t see herself becoming Amish, and she knows that if Eli leaves the church to be with her, he will be shunned. Will she escape Jack and possibly have to give up the one thing she holds most dear, or will she follow her heart and promise to cherish the Amish man who loves her?

This is such a special heartwarming story, and it is one that I highly recommend!

When Love Returns by Kim Vogel Sawyer

WHEN LOVE RETURNS

BY KIM VOGEL SAWYERWhen Love Returns (The Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy #3)

It wasn’t easy to move back to the Old Order Mennonite community from which quiet, responsible Suzanne Zimmerman was shamefully sent away as a pregnant teen. Returning twenty years later to take care of her mother, Suzanne and Alexa—the daughter she raised as her own—have spent months rebuilding relationships with her family.

Now with the upcoming wedding of their biological daughter, Suzanne and Paul find themselves drawn to one another once again—but with new challenges to face. They have been single parents with painful pasts. Can Paul and Suzanne find the strength to rebuild the loving relationship that was torn apart by their teen pregnancy so long ago?

Suzanne must also let go of Alexa as she heads back to Indianapolis to visit friends–and as her chance to find her birth parents. Leaving the bed-and-breakfast in Suzanne’s apprehensive hands, Alexa embarks on a journey that will certainly change her life completely. Can mother and daughter trust God to restore all things in His timing?

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

I really loved this book, and this entire series. I would recommend reading the first two books in the series before you read this one. I grew to love this family and these characters. The tension in this book is pretty thick at times, because of the situation with the adoptions, with Anna Grace not knowing that her real parents are right there in front of her, and Alexia wanting to find her real mom. It keeps you reading and not wanting to stop.

I highly recommend this book and this series to you for a fun and entertaining read, and especially if you enjoy Amish stories. And Kim Vogel Sawyer is one of the very best!

I rec’d a copy of this book from Blogging for Books to read and review. The views here are mine and mine only.

Litfuse presents…Miracle Drug by Richard L Mabry, M.D. from Abingdon

Miracle Drug

by Richard L Mabry, M.D.

Miracle DrugOvercoming these odds will take more than a miracle drug—it will take a miracle.

The infection wasn’t supposed to happen, but it did. The treatment was supposed to take care of it, but it didn’t. Then Dr. Josh Pearson discovers why—his patients, including the former President of the United States, have been dosed with a different strain of the original virus, one that is universally fatal. The only chance for survival is treatment with an experimental drug, but the manufacturer might already have discarded its supply.

As if treating the President of the United States isn’t stressful enough, the situation goes from bad to worse when Rachel Moore, a nurse Josh is falling in love with, falls ill. With the nation’s eyes on him, Josh must pull off a miracle to save a man who holds a good deal of power and the woman who holds his heart.

Learn more and purchase a copy.

MY THOUGTHS ON THIS BOOK

I love Richard Mabry’s books, and I loved Miracle Drug. The former President of the United States was intentionally exposed to a very rare virus, and newly appointed to his care was Dr Josh Pearson. Finding a treatment for this virus was more than a problem because the sample drug that was made to treat this virus was destroyed. Making matters worse, Dr. Pearson’s girlfriend ends up with the same virus, making the decision even more tense and stressful.

With interesting and unique characters, Miracle Drug is a fast, action packed suspense that will have you on your toes throughout the book! Just when I thought I had the bad guy figured out, another twist or turn would happen and I was at square one again. Thanks one of the things I love about Dr. Mabry’s books. Another unique thing about his books is that being a Doctor, Dr. Mabry has first hand experience and knowledge about anything medical. This is what makes his medical fiction so wonderful, the entire book is full of detailed medical scenes, all centered around sometime scary suspenseful situations!

I highly recommend Medical Drug to you for hours of fun fast pace suspense fun.

ABOUT THE BOOK

A new cowboy romance from award-winning author Kathleen Y’Barbo.

Trey’s biggest challenge isn’t performing surgery…it’s restoring Sessa’s heart!

Artist Sessa Chambers may never recover from losing her prodigal son. Even as she grieves the tragic decisions that led to his death, and left her with a toddler to raise, she’s asked to work on her dream project—restoring carousel horses for the Smithsonian. But she can’t do it on her own…

Dr. Trey Brown can’t pick up a scalpel again. Yes, he acted in self-defense, but the events of that awful night haunt him. He was trained to save lives, not take them. When he goes to the young man’s widowed mother to apologize, she’s not at all what he expected. For one thing, she’s not as alone as he thought—not with the fearsome ladies of the Pies, Books, and Jesus Book Club in her corner. For another, she’s beautiful, and being in her presence is more jolting than any eight-second bronco ride from his former rodeo days. Before he knows it, she’s captured his heart as easily as they capture the fireflies gracing Sessa’s Texas ranch.

How can they overcome their past to embrace a future together?

The Amish Clockmaker By Mindy Starns Clark, Susan Meissner

The Amish Clockmaker

By Mindy Starns Clark, Susan Meissner

the amish clockmaker

From bestselling authors Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner, The Amish Clockmaker (Book 3 in the Men of Lancaster County series) explores the men of an Amish community in Lancaster County, how their Amish beliefs play out in their unique roles, and the women who change their lives.

Newlywed Matthew Zook is expanding his family’s tack and feed store when a surprising property dispute puts the remodel on hold—and raises new questions about the location’s mysterious past.

Decades earlier, the same building housed a clock shop run by a young Amish clockmaker named Clayton Raber. Known for his hot temper, Clayton was arrested for the murder of his beloved wife, a crime almost everyone—including his own family members—believed he’d committed, even after charges were dropped. Isolated and feeling condemned by all, Clayton eventually broke from the church, left Lancaster County, and was never heard from again.

Now the only way Matthew can solve the boundary issue and save his family’s business is to track down the clockmaker. But does this put Matthew on the trail of a murderer?

A timeless novel of truth, commitment, and the power of enduring love, where secrets of the past give way to hope for the future.

 

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

 Matthew Zook was shocked to find out the land he was using to expand his store was not his after all. After a lot of embarrassment and searching, the land belongs to long ago Amish clockmaker named Clayton Raber. Raber had a horrible temper and rumors were that he killed his young wife, but no one knew anything about it, or didn’t want to talk about it. Authors Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner does a fantastic job of writing this story, weaving together the present with the past, uncovering long ago secrets and facts that were years ago swept under the rug and believed. This story ended up being a really sweet and heartwarming story, one that I still think about. The characters were so well created and developed that they were just like real! I felt as though I was talking with good friends. If you enjoy Amish fiction, then this one is a must for you. Go HERE and check it out.

The Amish of Ice Mountain Three Book Series by Kelly Long

The Amish of Ice Mountain

Three Book Series

by Kelly Long

the amish bride of ice mountainThe Amish Bride

Like most Mountain Amish girls, Mary King has always dreamed of her wedding day. But she never imagined that a sudden, irresistible kiss would result in marriage to the handsome Englischer professor studying her unique community. Or that doing the truly honorable thing means keeping their relationship chaste so both she and Dr. Jude Lyons can someday go their separate ways.

But when Mary accompanies her husband-in-name-only to Atlanta to meet his wealthy, overbearing family, she’s tempted more than ever by Jude’s kindness, humor–and vulnerability. And when a wrenching misunderstanding causes her to return heartbroken to her remote Appalachian home, she’s certain she’s lost the real love they have found…and the shared future she’s come to want so much. But a crisis of more than faith will work surprising miracles–and show Mary that love is strong enough to make the impossible come true.

“Long creates storylines that captivate her readers…” —RT Book Reviews

the amish man of ice mountainAn Amish Man

Joseph King has good reasons to work an oil rig far from his beloved Ice Mountain . . . and to mind his own business. He hopes to protect his younger brother Edward from worldly influences. And maybe he can finally forget how yielding to temptation forced him to leave home in disgrace. Still, no honorable Amish man would let Priscilla Allen and her four-year-old daughter remain homeless, living out of their car. And how can he not be drawn to the feisty waitress’s bravery and hidden strength . . .

Offering Priscilla a home on Ice Mountain as his wife-in-name-only gives her a place to start again. For Joseph, it’s also an unexpected chance to regain his reputation and standing in the community. But Priscilla’s warmth, caring, and determination to adjust to Amish society are renewing Joseph’s long-buried hope. Now as his guilt and her wrenching secrets threaten the fragile trust growing between them, they will need the riskiest of miracles to put the past to rest–and fulfill a promise only love and renewed faith can bring.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS SERIES OF BOOKS

When I saw the cover of these books, I really had to have them, because I love pretty covers. And these are very good and well written stories, I just don’t agree with them being listing as Christian or Inspirational fiction. In book one, The Amish Bride of Ice Mountain,  I felt the author went overboard with giving detailed descriptions of the love scenes, this is for secular books, not books labeled as Christian fiction. Then I read the second book, The Man of Ice Mountain and it was even worse even more detailed scenes. I respect people who enjoy this type of book, but not if they are listed as Christian. For this reason, I didn’t bother to read Book Three, because I didn’t want to waist one or two days on a book I didn’t feel comfortable reading. Like I said, these are really good stories, but they are definitely NOT Christian or Inspirational fiction. I am sorry but I can not support contents like that here.

I received this book from Zebra Publishing  to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
