Kregel Blog Tour Review: The Captivating Lady Charlotte by Carolyn Miller

Kregel Blog Tour Review: The Captivating Lady Charlotte by Carolyn Miller

My Thoughts I am new to Ms. Miller’s work but I will tell you now, I will not be missing any more of her work! She is fabulous! I came into this series on this second book, but I wasn’t confused in anyway and I loved Charlotte and the Duke so very much. I am a big fan of the regency era when I read historical books so this book is going on my keeper shelf for sure.  Charlotte’s character really gripped me. I loved how Ms. Miller portrayed her and her unsuredness in having to choose who to marry if there aren’t feelings there. I really felt for her so much through this story. And the Duke!! Oh my heavens, yes please! I loved his character possibly more than I loved Charlotte’s! He’s a Godly character and I loved that in him, as it’s often times you see the women in stories as the more Godly ones. These characters truly came together in a wonderful way and I was so excited to feel a part of the regency era, watching them come to light in the faith and feelings!  I definitely recommend this book to all historical romance lovers….

TLC Book Tours Review: The Writing Desk by Rachel Hauck

TLC Book Tours Review: The Writing Desk by Rachel Hauck

My Thoughts Rachel Hauck has been a long time favorite author of mine. She is incredible with her work. I was super excited to get the chance to read and review this new book by her, and let me tell you something. I didn’t just like the book. I loved it. I loved, loved, loved it. She took me on the most incredible whirl wind ride beside these incredible chiseled people. That’s right, people. Not just characters in a story, but people that felt real to me. With scenes and emotions that pop of the page, this book was absolutely fantastic. As a daughter of a cancer survivor, this book just had all the feels to me. I loved the way Ms. Hauck alternated the story between history and contemporary. Not all authors can do that and keep me hooked. But, with an antique desk, two wonderful women who have writing in common and some twists, turns, and emotional happenings, Ms. Hauck did it perfectly. Tenley, Birdie, Jonas, and even Elijah all stole a piece of my heart and refused to give it back. I felt their confusions, their struggles, their dreams and hopes, and their love of God. It… Read more »

LitFuse Blog Tour Review: Grounded Hearts by Jeanne M. Dickson

LitFuse Blog Tour Review: Grounded Hearts by Jeanne M. Dickson

My Thoughts Ms. Dickson is a new to me author. I really enjoyed getting to know her work through this wonderful historical fiction novel! From start to finish, I was pulled into the center of the story and kept there until the very last page was reached.  This book was a double bonus for me! I have always loved Ireland(even if I haven’t ever visited there!) and I have always loved the World War II era. This book is the best of both those worlds. Filled with wonderful details of historic happenings, and characters like Nan and Dutch that quickly steal your heart, I felt like I was transported back into the world of Hitler, and emotions so strong that they become the reader’s emotions.  Ms. Dickson is definitely an author I recommend. She created this 4 star novel with passionate detail to another place in time, and left me feeling all the feels with this book. I loved the story line of redemption and hope. I can’t wait to read another book by this talented author!    Giveaway One grand prize winner will receive: A copy of Grounded Hearts A Claddagh bracelet A Claddagh jewelry box Visit the tour page here.

LitFuse Blog Tour Review: His Guilt by Shelley Shepard Gray

My Thoughts Ms. Gray is back with another hit in the Amish Of Hart County series! She never fails to grip me wholly and keep me in the center of the story. This book, just like Her Secret, was an instant gripper for me. Once again, the characters were captivating for me. I loved Mark and Waneta both. Mark’s character really tugged at me the most. I can’t imagine the pain that he endured through life. The things he dealt with in life, you don’t imagine being a part of an Amish novel, but it was and it really made it that much more gripping. Oh to be there! I would go in mama mode on him and hug him big! Waneta’s character, well, she was a little too judgy at times, but seeing God work on her, really made me love her that much more. This book is intriguing, emotional, and gripping. It is not a sweet Amish romance, but it is a wonderful Amish novel in a series that will steal your heart, just the same. You will go through the roller coaster ride of ups and downs as you fall in love with each character, as you… Read more »
