Wild Lilly - Willow Creek Series, #1

I was expecting to really love this book from the way it started out. I liked the heroine but tolerated the hero. I didn't like his attitude and the way he treated Lilly. I got into the storyline a little more and decided that this would be...

Marrying Minda

I just finished "Marrying Minda". I thought the book was good, but it did not hold my attention the way I expected. The premise of the story was quite good, but some of the dialogue and steamy sex descriptions were a little off-putting to m...

A Run for Love

I thought I would really like this book because I always enjoy books from earlier times in America. However, I am a visual reader. By that, I mean that I like to visualize the characters' surroundings in my head as I read. I was unable to d...

Blessings, Bullets and Bad Bad Men

This was a very exciting book. I could not put it down because every page turn promised a new twist or turn. Jim Blessing, while being a drifter, had a strong sense of duty and a big heart. He acted as though he was big and tough. Although...

Highland Promise

Highland Promise was a delightful book. I especially enjoyed the humorous banter among the heroine and her highland protectors. The story had romance, suspense, and intrigue. I have read highland stories before and this followed the main th...

Accident Waiting to Happen

I'm sorry to have to give this book a lower rating, but I was not able to get "into" this book. I think the story line was good and could have been fleshed out more. I like Christian books, but this took the religion a little too far. Every...

Return to Grace - A Home Valley Amish Novel

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I usually read Amish stories and really enjoy them, but this one had far more depth than others I've read. I thought the story was very commanding, keeping me guessing until the very end. The main ch...

Odessa

I really enjoyed this book. The premise was very interesting and full of conflicts. I was amazed at how many troubling spots the main characters got themselves into and out of. Odessa at first seemed to be a very strong woman, but then ther...

West with the Wind

I just finished this book and I must say that I really liked it. It was well written and had all the elements of a good story - drama, passion, suspense. It's one of the best historical westerns that I've read in a long time. The main chara...

Hearts of Ice - Pembroke Steel, #2

I finished "Hearts of Ice" in record time. I enjoyed the story, what there was of it. At only 79 pages it was not a book that I would buy. I must admit that the ending was a surprise and I was not expecting that. However, I would have liked...

Mistaken Bride

I very much enjoyed reading "Mistaken Bride" by Regan Taylor. Marshall Kendrick Parker mistakenly apprehended Amanda Davis, thinking she was the notorious Black Bette Barclay. Amanda was in St. Louis to take a teaching job when she was cuff...

Ranger Daddy - Texas Legacies: The McCabes, American #1367

This book has everything - mystery, suspense, and romance. The fact that it is not a lengthy book is also good. It's a fast read and kept my interest throughout. Gabi Rafferty and her daughter are on the run from an abusive ex. She flees to...

The Saintmaker

I really enjoyed "The Saintmaker". The premise was quite different, as the setting was a Catholic Parish. Since I was employed at one time in a similar position in a Catholic parish it was quite interesting to see how the workings of the pl...

A Christmas to Remember

"A Christmas to Remember" by Debra St. John is a very nice romantic read. It is a short novel that is perfect to read in one evening while sitting on the couch covered up in a comforter, sipping hot tea. The story line is very predictable h...
