TLC Book Tours Review: Dark Deception by Nancy Mehl + GIVEAWAY

TLC Book Tours Review: Dark Deception by Nancy Mehl + GIVEAWAY

My Thoughts As a long time fan of Nancy Mehl’s and just finishing Fatal Frost from the library, I couldn’t wait to dive into this beauty. I was definitely not disappointed! She is a seasoned author who knows just what to bring her readers.  I loved the edge of your seat suspense in this novel. From page one, I was wrapped up in Kate’s story. She was chiseled perfectly and really came to life while I followed her on this whirl wind journey. Her journey was not an easy one, that’s for sure. In the witness protection program, she has dealt with so much in her life already. But, when she finds out she may have to retestify against the attacker that left her in the wfieitness program to begin with, the story line intensifies and I was pulled even deeper into the story.  Tony Deluca’s character was also well chiseled and I loved watching him trying to get a grip on his feelings for Kate once again. The sparks between were evident and when the plot turns to a whole new surprise, those feelings might have to be on the back burner in order to save Kate, and himself,… Read more »

Review: The Beloved Hope Chest by Amy Clipston + GIVEAWAY

Review: The Beloved Hope Chest by Amy Clipston + GIVEAWAY

My Thoughts Amy Clipston has always been a favorite of mine. Her books are always tenderly written, drawing me to the heart of each story. The characters she creates always become like family, leaving me with all their emotions. The Beloved Hope Chest was no exception!  The Beloved Hope Chest is the final Amish Heirloom book, making it an even more emotional book for me. I’m not ready to say goodbye yet! But, that said, this conclusion was a beautiful one. The story that captivated me instantly isn’t one I’ll soon forget.  Mattie, Leroy, and all the sweet loving characters in this book, stole my heart for good. They are simple, as Amish are, yet extremely complex. The emotions they share jump off the pages, cocooning the reader in warmth and grace, and sometimes sorrow. I loved that!  This book is in my top 10 reads of 2017. Amy has taken a story of grief and heartache and turned it into a story filled with longing, hope, faith and understanding. It is the 4th and final book in the series, and while I recommend readers to read all four books (they are all great!), it is easy to read this… Read more »

FlyBy Promotions Blog Tour Review: Mandisa Out Of The Dark CD + GIVEAWAY

Cafinated Reads is hosting a different type of review today. It’s a CD review! I am so happy to talk about this today on the blog. Here’s more about the CD I’m reviewing.   Story Behind The Album: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Df27myDpm1c Acoustic Video for Unfinished: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQFpXcvFI0A Purchase link: https://smarturl.it/OutOfTheDark.all?IQid=flyby Mandisa wrote her song  “Overcomer” in 2013 to encourage her close friend Kisha, who was battling breast cancer. Mandisa really believed and prayed that God was going to heal her, but when Kisha went to be with Jesus in 2014, Mandisa’s foundation was shaken in a way she never expected. She fell into a deep pit of depression for close to 3 years, shutting out her friends, family and the rest of the world. Mandisa believes if she had kept going down that road she was on, she would not be here today…but God stepped in and lifted her out of that pit by using her close friends to communicate their love for her and God’s love for her. This album is Mandisa’s way of letting her fans into her story – it’s called ‘Out Of The Dark’ because that is exactly where God lifted her out of!  You can watch her talk openly about… Read more »
