BookLookBlogger Review: If I’m Found by Terri Blackstock + GIVEAWAY

BookLookBlogger Review: If I’m Found by Terri Blackstock + GIVEAWAY

Molly’s Thoughts: A long time fan of Ms. Blackstock, I was excited to pick up this book. I wasn’t disappointed, that was for sure! From first page to last, I was on the edge of my seat, devouring the suspense long in to the night. The rush of anticipation was strong with this book! Casey, Dylan, and all the secondary characters are complexly created and I loved that. They need to be for their roles in the plot line. Reading this story transformed me into Casey for the duration of the book. I felt all her emotions, all her fears, all her hopes as if they were my  own. That was powerful! Just when I thought I knew what was coming, Ms. Blackstock twisted the story up and left me in awe, thinking about the twist. Ms. Blackstock once again created a story that is filled with messages from God, characters that are jaw droppingly awesome, and a story line that packs an incredible punch! If you love the anticipation of finding out what happens next, the heart pounding, jaw dropping need to find the clues and reach the end, then this book is for you. However, I must warn… Read more »

Review: In The Field Of Grace by Tessa Afshar

Review: In The Field Of Grace by Tessa Afshar

This book was amazing. Absolutely amazing. The message that is woven into this book, that God’s grace is sufficient through all times, good and bad, is powerful and incredible. It is just what I needed to read. Ms. Afshar is superbly talented and knew just what this reader need to read. Boaz and Ruth, along with Naomi, are created perfectly. I felt like I had taken a trip right to the heart of the Bible and followed their story. Both suffered tragedies beyond compare, both seeking happiness, both reaching out to each other. The way they were portrayed, the way they interacted and fell in love, made me fall in love with the whole story. It was perfect! Ms. Afshar’s book is high on my recommendations list. From start to finish, I was lost in the pages of this book, and I had it done in less than a day. It was that good. This book is powerful and worth so much more than simple 5 stars. It is worthy of 5 million stars. When it comes to Biblical fiction this is the kind of book I seek and I am so incredibly pleased to have read it. Reading this… Read more »

Review: Sunset In Old Savannah by Mary Ellis

Review: Sunset In Old Savannah by Mary Ellis

Holy smokes! Ms. Ellis is amazing! I’m used to reading her Amish books, so when the chance to read her Sunset In Old Savannah novel, I jumped on the chance. I wanted to see her talent at work in a suspenseful genre. It was not disappointing, that’s for sure. I lost myself among the pages of this gripping novel and I wasn’t expecting the ending that I got! I love a book like this. Ms. Ellis created a novel that all readers will love. It’s a touch of romance, Godly messages woven through out, a whole lotta twists, and a dash of humor. Beth and Michael’s characters will quickly work their way into your heart and they will stay there. They will take you on the whirl wind that is investigations, and lead you on a roller coaster ride that is evident with murders. Following Michael and Beth along the streets of Savannah (I’ve been once, and fell in love with the quaint town!) was so much fun! I was definitely on the edge of my seat for each page and stayed up long into the night reading. Ms. Ellis is a wonderful author. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading books… Read more »

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 »

Book Review: A Table By The Window by Hillary Manton Lodge

Book Review: A Table By The Window by Hillary Manton Lodge

My Thoughts: Love, family and…..food. What more could I ask for in a book? Nothing really, as I love all these combined! Ms. Lodge became an author I enjoyed way back when I read her Amish novels. I loved her work. She makes you smile, and really connects you with her characters. When I saw this book available for review, I was so excited to try it. I wanted to see Ms. Lodge at work once again and see how a non-Amish novel by her would be. The results? AMAZING! I loved it. Ms. Lodge combines the love, secrets, family and lots of good sounding recipes into a novel filled with faith, hope, determination and characters that will sweep you off your feet. A long distance relationship isn’t easy but Juliette decides to give it a go and through long awaited moments, Ms. Lodge creates a story of a life time with Juliette and Neil. This book read like a movie playing out for me. I loved it. If you want a timeless love story filled with yumminess and twists of family secrets, longing for love and embracing your faith, then this 5 star book is definitely for you! Ms…. Read more »

Revell Blog Tour Review: Summer Of Joy by Ann H. Gabhart

Revell Blog Tour Review: Summer Of Joy by Ann H. Gabhart

My Thoughts: When I think of reading an Ann Gabhart novel, I  think Shakers. The first novel I read by Ms. Gabhart was one of her Shaker novels, called The Seeker. I loved it. Her writing style is different, yet refreshing and really captivates me with each book that I read. Summer Of Joy was no different, and I thoroughly enjoyed reading. However, sadly, I didn’t read both the first books in this series, so I want to go back and read them.  In this novel, Ms. Gabhart captures everything from romance, to secrets and letting go of the past. She fills the book with tenderness and love, but also with anger and hatred. It makes for a wonderful combination as you turn the pages. Jocie’s character really brought out my mama side! I wanted to wrap her up and hold her all day long and tell her everything would be okay!  Of course, Ms. Gabhart adds characters that made me quite mad, too! For instance, Jocie’s mother. Let’s just say, I wanted to through the book across the room and throttle her! But, Ms. Gabhart over came that with adding humor to the story to keep me smiling through… Read more »
