Revell Reads Review: Rescue Me by Susan May Warren

Revell Reads Review: Rescue Me by Susan May Warren

This was an enjoyable read! I’m very pleased to have had the chance to read this new book by a very talented author. From start to finish of this well written novel, I was hooked. Every page turn brought something new and captivating to the story and I loved that. I loved Willow. I could see a lot of myself in her. She’s a sweet character and was created perfectly for her role in the story. And the fact that she’s got a “crush” on her sister’s boyfriend??? Loved that!!!! Sam’s character was a bit complex and I loved everything about him. His protectiveness over Willow, his protectiveness of the other characters in the story, really made me fall hard for him. This is definitely a book worth 4 stars that I will have on my keeper shelf for a long time to come. I’ll be recommending it to all my book loving friends that love a book filled with twists, humor and characters that steal your heart. While this was book 2 in a series, the events and characters were well written and didn’t leave me confused and wondering what happened. It’s easily read as a stand alone. Well… Read more »

Revell Reads Review: The Newcomer by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Revell Reads Review: The Newcomer by Suzanne Woods Fisher

As a long time fan of both Amish fiction and Ms. Fisher’s, I was excited to jump on this book. I must say that I am quite pleased that I did! Pennsylvania, Amish, and history, this book is one of Ms. Fisher’s finest pieces of work. I loved every minute of this story. This particular book is a little different than most Amish romances that I read, in that it’s more of the Amish settling in America. The characters that fill the pages of this book are wonderful. Anna, Bairn, Felix, Jacob…..all are beautifully chiseled and complex with emotions, faith and struggles. I felt like I had come home and settled into America right alongside these wonderful characters! Ms. Fisher’s ability to create a story, even a second story in a series, and not confuse the reader, is incredible. Her stories, like this one, are filled with God’s unending love, perseverance, romance and laughs. She adds a rollercoaster ride to the mix and keeps the readers hooked long in to the night as they have to turn each page to find out the next part of the story. This 4 star worthy book gets recommendations from me. If you love historical… Read more »

Revell Reads Review: A Justice Delayed by Patricia Bradley

Revell Reads Review: A Justice Delayed by Patricia Bradley

As a lover of all things crime on television, I was excited to hear of Ms. Bradley’s new release, the first in a new series. This book was filled with the twist and turns of a well written, suspenseful crime drama. From start to finish, Ms. Bradley gave me a roller coaster ride of events. The characters are truly complex and I could relate on more than one occasion to Andi. Her struggles were real-to-life and I felt all her emotions. The intensity of a murdered sister keeps you up long in to the night, desperate to help Andi put together the pieces of the story. I love when a crime book puts me in the center like that. Add in to the mix the hunky detective Will Kincaide as he tries to find a killer and free an innocent person, and this cold case story was quickly a favorite. This was a race against time novel, and a lovely start to a new and exciting crime series. Ms. Bradley never disappoints when she writes. Her stories have a plot of suspense, romance, faith and hope. The reader is left on the edge of their seats, jaw dropped, wondering when the next… Read more »

ARC Review: Blackbird by Molly McAdams

ARC Review: Blackbird by Molly McAdams

When I found out that Molly was releasing a new book this month, I had to jump on that band wagon. I mean, it’s Molly McAdams. When I sat down to review this book, I went in with an open mind that anything could happen with this book. I didn’t know what would happen, I didn’t even read the blurb on this one. I just went in almost blind and I was so glad that I did! The anticipation with each page turn was incredible. The characters in this story will gut you. You will feel anger. You will feel happiness. You will feel saddened. You will want to fuss at Molly McAdams. You will want to cherish the her and the book forever. That’s how emotional this book is. The theme of the story is not one you will take lightly, but you have to push on and find out what happens next. The twist of the story will hit you like a truck and leave you with your mouth on the floor and your thoughts in a whirlwind. The ending of the book will leave you wanting more. The ending of the book will leave you in a… Read more »

Revell Reads Review: A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz

Revell Reads Review: A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz

It’s been a long time since I sat down and read a Laura Frantz novel. When I saw this one available to read, I jumped on the chance. Something about the blurb of the book just called to me. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one but it was calling. I am quite pleased that I took the chance on it! It’s a book worth reading for sure. A Moonbow Night takes us to Kentucky and introduces us to Tempe and Sion. The history that is woven, the attention to details so the reader feels a part of Tempe and Sion’s story, is absolutely incredible. I was instantly transported to Kentucky and felt the struggles, the attraction, the ways of the land as if I was truly there. Ms. Frantz created a 5 star worthy novel and wove it with captivating scenes. The characters, the setting, the page turning ups and downs of this beautiful historical novel is one I highly recommend to all! Well done, Ms. Fratz.
