Chance for Home by Traci Hunter Abramson, Blog Tour & Giveaway!







Book Summary:


Beautiful pre-med student Kari Evans believes she’s found the man of her dreams—right up until the moment she discovers he’s a two-timing cheat. Desperately gathering the pieces of her broken heart, she realizes that what she needs most is space to reconsider her future. A summer in Washington, DC, with her professional baseball player brother, Ben, sounds like just the change of scene she’s after. But if complicated romantic entanglements are what she’s trying to escape, she’s out of luck. Ryan Strobel has had it with spotlight-seeking women. As third baseman for the Washington Nationals, he’s dealt with more than his fair share of opportunistic admirers—but his ex-fiancée, Brandi, may be the worst. When the woman refuses to take no for an answer, Ryan’s teammate Ben offers a crazy solution: Ben’s sister will pose as Ryan’s new girlfriend. Though an unlikely pair, Ryan and Kari find themselves getting surprisingly comfortable with the charade. Soon, the line between fact and fiction is blurred, and the very real feelings that develop between the couple are undeniable. But when faced with the interference of conniving exes, family objections, and the reality of their very different lives, are Ryan and Kari destined to strike out in the game of love?


My Review:

I really enjoyed this book, it caught my interest from the get-go and held it until the very last page. Kari was one of those too good to be true girls. She was sweet, kind, caring, loyal and supportive. I kept waiting for her to have some sort of flaw, she was the kind of person everyone wants to be friends with. I wanted to punch that creep Austin since he two-timed her! What a punk! Then she meets Ryan, a professional baseball player, teammate, and friend to her own brother! When sparks begin to fly and then things get tough, I wasn't sure if they would make it, but I was rooting for them the whole time! It was interesting to think of how hard it would be to date someone who is a professional baseball player and the crazy schedules that they keep. Let alone the craziness of the media, you really have little privacy. Abramson really let you get a look into the life of someone who plays sports professionally. This book is definitely a home run! Go pick up your copy!


Happy Reading!!!

The Vicar's Daughter by Josi S. Kilpack, Blog Tour



Book Summary:

Cassie, the youngest of six daughters in the Wilton family, is bold, bright, and ready to enter society. There's only one problem: her older sister Lenora, whose extreme shyness prevents her from attending many social events. Lenora is now entering her third season, and since their father has decreed that only one Wilton girl can be out at a time, Cassie has no choice except to wait her turn.

Evan Glenside, a soft-spoken, East London clerk, has just been named his great-uncle's heir and, though he is eager to learn all that will be required of him, he struggles to feel accepted in a new town and in his new position.

A chance meeting between Evan and Lenora promises to change everything, but when Lenora proves too shy to pursue the relationship, Cassie begins to write Mr. Glenside letters in the name of her sister. Her good intentions lead to disaster when Cassie realizes she
 is falling in love with Evan. But then Evan begins to court Lenora, thinking she is the author of the letters.

As secrets are revealed, the hearts of Cassie, Evan, and Lenora are tested. Will the final letter sent by the vicar's daughter be able to reunite the sisters as well as unite Evan with his true love?


My Review:

I was sort of blown away by this book; I honestly expected a good regency, but this was amazing! Cassie who is the youngest of six daughters to the local vicar cannot "come out" until her older sister is married. She feels it is so unfair, which come on, I am with her, it is completely unfair! Why does she have to wait for her sister? It is crazy, but anyway, that is the rule of their family! So Cassie has this brilliant idea that she will write to a potential suitor for her sister, as if she is her sister! So then if her sister is settled, she can be out in society and enjoy all the fun she has been missing out on. So she sends off the first letter posing as her sister Lenora, and it just spirals from there! She quickly becomes embroiled in a bigger mess than she ever could have foreseen and I kept wondering how and if it would ever resolve so that all involved would be happy and content! I could not stop reading, I just loved Cassie's story, and watching her grow and change. This is one regency I will not soon forget! Grab a copy and settle in your favorite chair because you will not be moving until you have read every last word!

Miss Whitaker Opens Her Heart by Jennifer Moore, Blog Tour & Giveaway




Book Summary:

Australia, 1814

As a young child bound for a strange country, Sarah Whitaker dreamed of life with her father on his sprawling Australian ranch. But her hopes were shattered when she learned of his death and of her new role as heiress of the largest sheep farm in New Wales. Orphaned in a land greatly populated by petty criminals exiled from England, the future seemed grim. But now, ten years later, Sarah has defied the odds and become a successful businesswoman much to the chagrin of her male counterparts. Hardened by the dishonesty of both her fellow ranchers and the felons in her employ, Sarah has learned one important truth: no one is to be trusted.

Daniel Burton is a lucky man. Sentenced to death for his role in a horse-race scandal, Daniel was granted reprieve thanks to the influence of his wealthy relatives. Now, rather than death, Daniel faces exile in Australia an opportunity to put past mistakes behind him. But when he purchases land with the intention of farming it, he unwittingly arouses the wrath of his new neighbor, Sarah. What begins as a battle of wits, however, soon becomes a warm friendship and perhaps something more. But when Daniel's secret past is revealed, will Sarah be able forgive yet another deception?


My Review:

I was pleasantly surprised by this new and interesting world that Moore took me to! I am used to reading regency era novels set in England and this one is an adventure in and of itself simply by the setting being in New Wales. The idea of free people and then convicts who have been banished living and working together was unlike anything I have ever read before. I really enjoyed Sarah's story, it was unlike any I have ever read. Unraveling her feelings and background took time and patience and I was right there with Daniel, trying to figure Sarah out, step by step. I think any regency fan will love this book set in Wales! It is refreshing and full of unique perspectives you will not find in other books!

Deadly Inheritance by Clair Poulson, Blog Tour & Giveaway



Book Summary:


Andi Buckner and her twin brother, Bolden, have had enough of the rough streets of Detroit. When they can no longer bear the drugs and abuse within their home, the twins make their escape: Bolden to the military, and Andy to wherever the wind takes her. With few belongings and no specific destination, Andi eventually finds herself across the table from a kind old man in a quaint café in Spring Hollow, Montana. Louis “Gramps” Granger, a retired cop, takes Andi under his wing. Andi soon finds a peace she’s never known as she roots herself in the small town, working at the café and living in a cabin on Gramp’s property. But her peace is short-lived. . . When an enemy from Gramp’s past murders the old man, Andi’s need to see justice served draws her into an investigation far beyond her own abilities. But hundreds of miles away, her twin brother senses her despair and heeds her silent plea for help. Andi is soon reunited with her brother as well as with Bolden’s friend, private investigator Mason Crowther. Together, the trio delves into a mystery and soon discovers that the murderer’s motive goes far deeper than any of them imagined. With the truth almost within reach, they find themselves directly in the path of a killer who will stop at nothing to finish what they’ve started. . . .

My Review:
I have been a long time reader and supporter of Poulson and his writing. I was happy and excited to read his newest release, especially since it had the whole twin thing going on and was set a in a small, rural town. It seemed like the perfect setting for a good mystery! I really liked Andi and her twin brother Bolden. They could sense when the other one was hurting, scared or in danger, that part was pretty cool. The murder mystery was a tangled web of I have no idea who could have actually done this, it went it a lot of different direction. It seemed like it could be many different people, so that aspect was good because it wasn't an easy one to solve. My one major issue was the way the book was written. I felt like it did a lot more telling than showing going on. The conversations didn't seem authentic to real life and I felt like it was too contrived. While I still enjoyed the story, that detracted big time for me and it was much harder for me to enjoy the book.

A Timeless Anthology: A Season in London, Book Review



Book Summary:

Three brand new Regency Romance novellas by Elizabeth Johns, Heather B. Moore, and Rebecca Connolly.

POOR RELATIONS by Elizabeth Johns
As a ‘poor relation,’ Emma Standrich has already pre-empted her dismal Season by applying for a governess post. Her aunt and cousin are kind enough to sponsor her, but in truth, Emma is just waiting for it to all be over. Emma’s grief over the death of her brother while in military service casts a pallor on everything else in her life. When Colonel Shelton, the man who was her brother’s superior, asks her to dance at her first ball, Emma is more surprised than anyone. But she has questions for him, and soon she’s caught up in an intrigue she wasn’t expecting—both of the heart and the mind.

EDWARD & EMILY by Heather B. Moore
As a second son, Edward Blackwood never anticipated becoming heir to his family estate, or the need to find a wife and secure that inheritance. But with the death of his older brother, Edward is thrust into a life he never wanted. When his mother encourages him to be kind to his long-time neighbor Emily Foster, a girl he’d hardly paid attention to while growing up, Edward realizes that returning home might not be such a set-back after all.

A SPORTING SEASON by Rebecca Connolly
Daphne Hutchins is no simpering female who aims for a husband with a fortune. In fact, she’d be more than happy to live her life free of the heartache that men seem to bring. So when she sets out to play the fool in front of the ton during her first Season in order to send all eligible men running, she’s quite unprepared for James Woodbridge. Bored, but with a sense of family duty, James arrives for the Season, anticipating going through the expected motions befitting any gentleman. What he isn’t prepared for is Daphne Hutchins and the way she completely upends his heart.

Oh Come on Be Faithful by Cami Checketts, Book Review



Book Summary:

Former Army security expert Matt Degan is in desperate need of a Christmas miracle. His ex-wife cleaned out his savings account and abandoned their son. Sadly, Matt has no presents stashed.
When he finds a job as a bodyguard for Mikayla Lambert, a billionaire heiress who has been tormented by a stalker for four years, he's caught up in family drama that threatens this beautiful woman he's becoming enamored with, and might also endanger his son. Can Matt protect everyone and save Christmas for his son, or will the stalker succeed at kidnapping Mikayla and destroying any chance at love between them?


My Review:

This story of Matt and Mik is a sweet yet swoonworthy romance with some mystery and intrigue as well. I loved Matt! He was this huge bodyguard type guy with such a sweet heart and a need to protect Mik who he was quickly falling in love with. Mik was strong yet still had a need for support and a strong person to lean on. Matt's son Brock was a great addition to the story, as well as Mik's sister, Sarah and her nephew Kyler. This story made me laugh, smile and had all of the good feels I look for in a book!

An Informal Christmas by Heather Gray, Book Review



Book Summary:

Rylie Durham is used to dealing with all sorts of people and situations in her role as a Child Life Specialist at a local hospital. Why, then, does Zach York bring out the worst in her? After all, he's there to donate toys to the children she loves.

Could it be that she sees a kindred spirit in him? Rylie knows a thing or two about hiding a bruised heart from the world... and the danger inherent in blaming God for the hurt.

With December's approach, Rylie enlists Zach's help for a special undertaking -- a Christmas formal for one of the pediatric units. As they work together on the project, she hopes to show him that, even when it's painful, love is worth the risk...


My Review:

So this is a Christian romance novella. The subject matter with the main character Rylie working with kids who have cancer is definitely heavy. But it really gets you into the world of childhood cancer and how the patients, their families and even those who work with them are affected. The romance between Zach and Rylie was slow to happen but it made for a more realistic relationship. My only criticism of the book was what I felt was an abrupt ending. I was expecting more and was shocked when I read The End. Surely this is not the end of Rylie and Zach's story? I felt like we were just starting to get somewhere!! I won't ruin it for any potential readers, let's just suffice it to say that I want more!

Love, Jane by Ranee S. Clark, LDS Blog Tour & Giveaway




Book Summary:

Jane Reeves and Sean O'Callaghan seem to be a match made in heaven—but the timing is all wrong. Jane has her heart set on serving a mission, and she can't delay telling Sean the news any longer: not only has she quietly submitted her mission papers, but she's also leaving in a month ... for Alaska. Shocked and devastated, Sean struggles to come to terms with Jane's decision. Unable to deny the depth of their feelings for one another, Sean makes a promise to wait for her.

Life unfolds for both Jane and Sean, with communications limited to weekly e-mails. But with just a few months left in Jane's mission, Sean's messages stop. When she receives the dreaded "Dear Jane" breakup along with the news that she has been replaced by Sean's former flame, Jane knows the future she envisioned now belongs to another woman. But upon her return home, Jane quickly realizes some things are worth fighting for—perhaps, most of all, a shot at true love.



My Review:

First things first, I love this cover! It is gorgeous and made me want to dive right into the book. So the beginning of the book was a little slow for me, it took me a while to get into it. But once I got into the story, I was able to quickly read it. Jane man, what can I say about her? She frustrated me in her unwillingness to be open and speak what was on her mind! I guess for me it was hard to relate to her, because she wanted to say things but just never did! Sean was super sweet and the kind of guy any girl would fall for! Sweet, smart, handsome and more patient than most men would be! I was conflicted throughout the book more than one time, there was a lot going on.  I wanted Jane to open her eyes and realize what she was doing to Sean without realizing it! Just read it and see for yourself what you think! A couple fall in love and she leaves to serve a mission, I mean, what could go wrong? Pick it up and find out!

Genre: Sweet/LDS romance

The Viscount's Proposal (The Regency Spies of London #2) by Melanie Dickerson, Review



Book Summary:

Leorah Langdon has no patience for Regency society’s shallow hypocrisy and unnecessary rules, especially for women. She’s determined to defy convention by marrying for grand passion instead of settling for a loveless union like her parents—or wedding a stuffy, pompous gentleman like Edward, the Viscount Withinghall. But when a chance meeting in the countryside leads to Leorah and Withinghall being discovered in his overturned carriage—alone and after dark—the ensuing gossip may force them together.
Withinghall has his reasons for clinging to propriety; his father perished in a duel with his mistress’s husband, and Edward must avoid scandal himself if he wants to become prime minister. He certainly has no time for a reckless hoyden like Miss Langdon. But soon the two discover that Withinghall’s coach “accident” was no such thing: the vehicle was sabotaged.
Can the culprit be brought to justice? Strong-willed Leorah and duty-driven Withinghall will have to work together if they have any hope of saving her reputation, his political career—and his life.

My Review:
This story really grabbed me and would not let me go. Leorah was my kind of girl; she refused to comply with society's ridiculous rules for women and she was not afraid to speak up and out. I just laughed and laughed when she and her friend Felicity were caught comparing Lord Withinghall to a pirate! The fact that Lord Withinghall and Leorah had an immediate dislike for each other made the story so much more interesting with every encounter between the two! The verbal sparring was intense and I imagined I was there watching it all unfold! Then everything cranked up a notch when the mystery, murder and secrets began! Dickerson masterfully tells a story that will draw you in and hold you captive until the very last word is read! I was completely intrigued and loved every minute of The Viscount's Proposal and you will too! I received a copy of this via netgalley and was under no obligation to review it.

A Fine Gentleman by Sarah M. Eden, Blog Tour





Book Summary:

London barrister Jason Jonquil has spent his entire life working to establish his identity as a gentleman, a man of refinement like his father and brothers. But when fiery Spanish beauty Mariposa Thornton walks into his office, he finds himself losing his grasp on his dignified character. The woman is infuriating, pushing him to the limit of his legendary patience. However, her case seems simple enough—a small matter of inheritance. Or so he believes.

Once a well-born lady, Mariposa fought to survive the brutalities of Napoleon’s war on Spain. She braved horrific perils and undertook dangerous missions on behalf of those fighting against the invading French army. But her greatest battle still lies ahead: after being separated from her family, Mariposa sets in motion a plan to reunite with her loved ones in England. To avoid drawing the attention of the French, Mariposa dons a carefully crafted persona to conceal her true purpose. As Jason and Mariposa are drawn together by the case, they come to know the people beneath the masks they both wear.

When the truth of Mariposa’s quest is revealed, the couple is pulled into a mystery that will test the limits of their courage—and expose the true desire of their hearts.



My Review:

A Fine Gentleman by Sarah M. Eden

This was regency at its finest! A unique setting and situation for a regency novel, I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Jason Jonquil and Mariposa Thornton. Each person was a mystery waiting to slowly be unraveled. Especially Mariposa with all of her secrets! And Jason was suppressing feelings of his own! The connections that Eden made between the characters brought everyone together and full circle. I loved the Jonquil family and I am wanted to spend time with them too! By the time I was finished reading I felt like I knew an entire family, not just a few people. A Fine Gentleman is a must read for any regency and romance fan!

The Silent Songbird (Hagenheim #7) by Melanie Dickerson, Book Review



Book Summary:

Evangeline longs to be free, to live in the world outside the castle walls. But freedom comes at a cost.

Evangeline is the ward and cousin of King Richard II, and yet she dreams of a life outside of Berkhamsted Castle, where she might be free to marry for love and not politics. But the young king betroths her to his closest advisor, Lord Shiveley, a man twice as old as Evangeline. Desperate to escape a life married to a man she finds revolting, Evangeline runs away from the king and joins a small band of servants on their way back to their home village.

To keep her identity a secret, Evangeline pretends to be mute. Evangeline soon regrets the charade as she gets to know Wesley, the handsome young leader of the servants, whom she later discovers is the son of a wealthy lord. But she cannot reveal her true identity for fear she will be forced to return to King Richard and her arranged marriage.

Wesley le Wyse is intrigued by the beautiful new servant girl. When he learns that she lost her voice from a beating by a cruel former master, he is outraged. But his anger is soon redirected when he learns she has been lying to him. Not only is she not mute, but she isn't even a servant.

Weighed down by remorse for deceiving Wesley, Evangeline fears no one will ever love her. But her future is not the only thing at stake, as she finds herself embroiled in a tangled web that threatens England's monarchy. Should she give herself up to save the only person who cares about her? If she does, who will save the king from a plot to steal his throne?




My Review:

Dickerson magically transports you from your world and into a fairy tale! I felt like I was in the midst of the medieval times watching Eva and her story unfold! Captivated from the beginning, Dickerson's storytelling kept me engrossed and engaged until the very last word. Eva was a great protagonist with a fiery spirit, determination and no fear! I imagine all girls and women alike would aspire to have her qualities! A beautifully written tale about the King's cousin and her desire to choose her own groom, The Silent Songbird is Christian fiction at its best!

Be Happy by Hank Smith, LDS Blog Tour & Giveaway




Book Summary:

You can be happy—solidly, genuinely happy—no matter what's going on around you, no matter what happens to you, no matter what storm comes along to batter and bruise you.
Keep reading, and I'll show you how . . .

Face it: it's not always easy to feel happy. With all of the worries and trials of day-to-day life, the cares of the world can seem overwhelming. But as popular speaker and author Hank Smith demonstrates, no matter your circumstances, you can be happy—the kind of happy that illuminates you from the inside out, a joy that does not depend on what happens to you but on what you do with what happens. With his characteristic humor, Hank offers readers a fresh perspective on finding joy in the journey with a collection of tools and strategies designed to inspire genuine happiness, such as: • Learning to develop an optimistic outlook

• Understanding how to deal with feelings of depression<

• Mastering ten simple tricks to jump-start your joy each day

Featuring an inspiring collection of real-life examples, enlightening doctrinal direction, and motivating goals, Be Happy is the guide you need to start living a happier life, today!



My Review:

Well let me be honest, I have heard so much about Hank Smith and I have heard bits and pieces of an audio book, once...maybe, but I have never read one of his books before. I was pleasantly surprised! I tend to shy away from 'self-help' books and they typically are a chore to read for me. But "Be Happy" was the opposite of the norm! Smith makes you feel like he is talking to you, not lecturing you on how to be a happier person. The book is easy to read, flows well and it read like an everyday conversation a friend would have with you. There were so many wonderful things he said as well. One of my favorites was, "Happiness is contagious! And unlike the stomach flu, it's something worth catching." This is so not your typical self-help book. It is fun yet full of useful information to help you find happiness in your everyday life!

Happy Reading!!!

Securing the Handyman's Heart by Katie Clark, Book Review



Book Summary:


Local cupcake queen Kayla Dobbs is feeling the heat—just as her bakery is finally taking off, her retired parents start pressuring her to move to Florida. Determined to prove her success, she takes on extra work at the bakery and fibs a little about the depth of her love life. When her mother announces an upcoming visit to meet the lucky guy, Kayla makes a pact with her friends to get a proposal from George Marks, town handyman extraordinaire. The problem is, George seems totally indifferent.

George Marks has enough on his plate with running his business, taking care of an ailing but feisty grandmother, and the possibility of a new business venture on the horizon. But when bumping into Kayla becomes a strangely routine thing, he’s surprised to realize it has also become the highlight of his days. As business spirals out of control and Granny takes a turn for the worse, he’s sure he made one too many commitments. With a dash of matchmaking granny and a pinch of secret cupcake recipe, Kayla and George find themselves in one messy kitchen. But will they find themselves in love?


My Review:

Securing the Handyman's Heart by Katie Clark

Clark's debut novel does not disappoint! A sweet Christian romance, the story of Kayla and her on and off again boyfriend George is sure to win you over! I loved Kayla! From her sweet disposition, to her bakery and her pet duck Maxwell, there wasn't much I didn't like! And she loved George so much, but he just didn't understand how to figure out life! The best character of all was Granny! Her role was small but unforgettable! Her spunk and pizazz had me smiling from ear to ear! This unconventional love story will have you page turning until you read the words "The End". Bravo to Clark and I look forward to reading more from her in the future!

One Fell Down by Ronda Gibb Hinrichsen, Blog Tour & Giveaway





Book Summary:


When Mikaela York opens an anonymous blue sympathy card with the nursery rhyme “Jack and Jill” written inside, she doesn’t know what to make of it. But soon after, Mikaela and her fiancé are in a tragic car accident, resulting in her husband-to-be’s death. Then when Mikaela’s grandmother loses her life in a hiking accident one year later, an old man gives Mikaela another mysterious blue card at the funeral. After the service, Mikaela’s grandfather asks that she oversee the renovations on his bed & breakfast in New Zealand. When she arrives, Mikaela meets Tui Davies—the inn’s manager—and Brentin Williams, the man Tui expects her daughter to marry. Tui helps Mikaela retrieve a doll from the cellar vault, but the doll turns out to be an evil omen that Mikaela is told she must get rid of before someone is murdered. Meanwhile, the old man from the funeral is bent on revenge and is plotting against everyone who has ever wronged him, and Mikaela is next in line. But until she discovers the killer’s contact in New Zealand, whom can she trust? And while Brentin attempts to help Mikaela overcome her grief, she must decide—is she ready to love again?


My Review:

Hinrichsen does a stellar job of starting the mystery and suspense right from page one! I was hooked from the beginning and I had to know why everyone close to Mikaela was being killed and furthermore, why they really wanted to kill her! Who was this guy and why was he bent of murder? Nothing made sense and I had to find out what was going on! Not only that but I needed to know if Mikaela would ever draw again! Her obvious talent shouldn't go to waste! And could she let go of her grief and heartache and learn to love and be whole?  All of this goes on and her grandpa has her take a trip to New Zealand for his inn renovations. Hinrichsen makes you feel like you are there with her experiencing the beauty and culture right along with Mikaela. A murder mystery that will keep you in suspense and on your toes, One Fell Down is worth the read!

Happy Reading!!!
