Reading Wednesday | The Way of the Brave

I love wilderness survival novels. When I volunteered to read and review a copy ofΒ The Way of the Brave by Susan May Warren, I didn't realize how much of a survival story it was. The further into the book I got, the more hooked I became. Getting trapped on Denali with death, the past, and … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | The Way of the Brave

Reading Wednesday | On Wings of Devotion

Ever since I learned that Philip Camden would be one of the main characters in the second book of Roseanna M. White's Codebreakers series, I couldn't wait for the book to come out. Readers first met Cam in The Number of Love as a friend of Drake Elton. He also became a co-worker of Margot … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | On Wings of Devotion

Reading Wednesday | Smokescreen

Smokescreen by Terri Blackstock was my first time reading a book by this author. I loved her writing. She has an amazing ability to draw out emotion in a reader, whether happy, sad, or mad. Brenna Strickland is a single mother fighting her ex for custody of her children. Nate Beckett is a smokejumper who … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | Smokescreen

Reading Wednesday | Seconds to Live

Susan Sleeman is one of my favorite romantic suspense authors. Her plots are always high-action and the romance happily-ever-after. So when the opportunity to be on the launch team for her latest full-length novel came up, I gladly jumped at the chance. Seconds to Live follows U.S. Marshal Taylor Mills as she attempts to keep … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | Seconds to Live

Reading Wednesday | Echoes Among the Stones

I finished reading Echoes Among the Stones, Jaime Jo Wright's latest time-slip novel, last night. Putting words to a review this morning doesn't feel fair to the impact of the book. It's the type of story that leaves a reader thinking long after the final page has closed. When Aggie Dunkirk's life falls apart, she … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | Echoes Among the Stones

Reading Wednesday | The End of the Magi

The End of the Magi, by Patrick W. Carr, mixes Biblical Fiction with an epic quest like those found in the Fantasy genre. It follows a young magi, Myrad, as he simultaneously flees for his life and follows the star pointing to the new Messiah. He meets friends, foes, danger, and success throughout the journey. … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | The End of the Magi

Reading Wednesday | When Silence Sings

I'll be honest, historical novel, When Silence Sings, by Sarah Loudin Thomas, wasn't what I expected. Perhaps I should have read the back copy more clearly. However, once I was into the story, it sucked me right in. Coleman Harpe has excellent hearing. He also wants to be a preacher. The problem is, his family … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | When Silence Sings

Reading Wednesday | Deadly Deceit

Some book reviews are a challenge to write. Like this one. Because the book was so good it's hard to do it justice in a few hundred words. That's why I'm adding a new author to my favorite author list: Natalie Walters. Deadly Deceit is the second book in her Harbored Secrets series and only … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | Deadly Deceit

Reading Wednesday | The Lady and the Lionheart

I won't deny that I love free books. Better than free books, however, are ones given as gifts, especially when the book is one of the gifter's favorites. That was the case with The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof. This was the first book by Joanne that I have read, though I have … Continue reading Reading Wednesday | The Lady and the Lionheart
