An Uncommon Protector – My Review

This book delivered everything I hope for in historical fiction. Our wounded hero is admirable and likeable even though he’s a bit rough around the edges and our heroine is strong and lovely and in need of a friend. The unlikely pair finds themselves thrown in the middle of a mystery and threatened by an unknown enemy. This Post-Civil War tale had me glued to the page.

The Wedding Dress – My Review

This is my favorite book by Rachel Hauck yet. I’m really becoming a fan of stories with dual timelines, where the reader hops between the past and the present. Charlotte and Emily are both captivating leading ladies who felt like my friends by the end of the book. The journey of the mysterious wedding dress was so unique and intriguing. I didn’t want to put the book down.

Readers will not be disappointed with this tale. It’s romantic and nostalgic. It’s mysterious and surprising. Historical and contemporary fans alike will enjoy it. The love stories are certainly included and they play a pivotal role, but the real focus is on the individual journeys of the women. Watching them each discover who they are and where their faith lies creates a remarkable story. Read more ›

Just The Way You Are – My Review

I knew within minutes of opening this book that I was going to love it. I was laughing out loud by the the end of the first chapter and the story just grew more adorable as it went along. Eisley and Wes are both such endearing characters. I loved them instantly. This is quite possibly my favorite Pepper Basham book to date!

As always, the grace-filled message and the endearing characters are the shining attributes of this author’s writing. And did I mention it is full of romance too? Can’t forget that! This is one love story that will quickly sweep you off your feet.

The Memory of You – My Review

This story gives so much to its readers. It’s one very emotional ride for the characters, but the lessons in grace and forgiveness are unmistakable. It didn’t take long for me to be swept away to the lovely vineyards, where heritage and hard work are intertwined.

There is a lot of emotions for everyone to work through in this story. Natalie’s journey is very difficult and my heart cried for her through her loss and struggle. I was gripped by every page to see if she’d overcome the past that haunts her.

The Illusionist’s Apprentice – My Review

This book had my attention with its first line and I didn’t want to put it down. The story opens with such mystery! My mind raced with a thousand questions. 😉 I could not guess where the plot was going and it kept me guessing right up until its finale. The Illusionist’s Apprentice offers so much to readers – intrigue, history, and a great deal of heart.

Wren is known for being an entertainer on the stage, but this girl shined off the stage even more to me. I loved this unique character. Her strength and talents added to her charm, but it was her vulnerability, her honesty, and her faith I’ll remember the most. I loved how she changed and grew through the story too, opening her heart once more. Her journey is understated and yet profound all at the same time.
