The Heirs of Falcon Point by Traci Hunter Abramson, Sian Ann Bessey, Paige Edwards, & A.L. Sowards, Blog Tour & Giveaway!!!

 




Book Summary:


In the early days of World War II, the Lang family lost everything. Eighty years later, it’s time to take it back.

The Nazis have taken control of Austria, and wealthy widower Leopold Lang faces a difficult decision: join the ranks of the foreign power that has taken over his homeland or flee with his children to safety. Leopold makes his choice—but too late. His family is ripped apart, never to be reunited. But decades later, fate brings together the descendants of this broken dynasty in the place where it all began—Falcon Point.

Anna, Cole, and Tess have never met, each relying on fractured pieces of information to understand their Austrian heritage. But when unforeseen opportunities draw these Lang cousins to Falcon Point, they soon discover they are not alone in their quest to claim the coveted property and the fabled treasure hidden within. Unfortunately, another claimant, one with a much darker heritage, is determined to eliminate the Lang family once and for all.
 


My Review:

Phenomenally written, Heirs of Falcon Point is a story I cannot stop thinking about. From the first chapter I was completely caught up in the Langs’ world and the suspense just continued to build from chapter to chapter. Reading this at night was a mistake because my heart kept racing and the pages kept turning. Who needs sleep when there is a mystery to solve and wrongs to be made right?

I cannot believe this was written by four different authors because the story is so seamless. The romantic suspense is a level 10 and I loved all of the different points of view. The story definitely was well rounded and I enjoyed putting the puzzle pieces together with the characters.

Four authors, one powerful story of love, loss, and family. Heirs of Falcon Point is a moving and evocative story that readers will remember long after they have read the last page. I am hopeful that the story will continue and that there will be more to come in the future. This is my favorite book of 2021 and I predict it will win many awards. If I could, I would give it 10 stars, it deserves a perfect 10! I received a copy of this book for free; all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Happy Reading!!!

A Perilous Plan (Imperiled Young Widows Book 1) by Melanie Dickerson, Book Review

 


Book Summary:

Penelope Hammond finds herself a widow at the age of twenty-three, having been married five years to a man she barely knew. Her husband, David Hammond, Lord Hampstead, was a member of the House of Lords who rarely said more than a few words to her in a week’s time--and often did not come home at night.

But Lord Hampstead was from a wealthy, powerful London family with no enemies, so why was he murdered?

Penelope is a penniless widow with few friends and only her cold grandmother to lean on. When she finds herself pursued by both English officials and French spies, she doesn’t know who to trust—until a handsome Member of Parliament, Henry Gilchrist, saves her from being attacked and kidnapped. Mr. Gilchrist seems so determined to help her, but can she trust him?

Henry Gilchrist seems to know more about her husband than she does--that he was unfaithful to her with a young Frenchwoman who Penelope thought was her friend, that his gambling problem had sunk him deeply in debt, and that he had stolen some very important plans that could put the entire country in danger. And now both the French and the English governments think she knows where these plans are.

Penelope had no idea that her husband stole secret plans and intended to sell to the French, but no one seems to believe her, except Henry Gilchrist. When she starts to fall in love with the handsome young Member of the House of Commons, will he be too imbittered from a former lost love to accept his own growing feelings? But first they must save themselves from those who would do them harm, or there will be no future for them, either together or apart.
 


My Review:

A Perilous Plan is so full of suspense and mystery that I had a hard time putting it down! I loved the immediate intrigue that pulled me in and kept me turning the pages. Henry Gilchrist was a handsome man and I loved how sweet and kind her was. This Christian fiction suspense novel has everything that makes up a fantastic story. I loved Penny, she was brave, bold, and kind. A story full of danger, treason, romance, and trust, A Perilous Plan is one Christian fiction novel you do not want to miss! I received a copy of this book for free; all thoughts and opinions are my own.

My Review:

I absolutely love Christmas stories and this is the perfect time of year to start them!  They had me at Christmas and romance stories, I love them! What is awesome about Meet Me Under the Kissing Bough is that this is a compilation of novellas by three amazing authors. I haven't had tons of time to read lately so reading one quick novella when I had time was perfect for me! All of the emotions are brought to the forefront in these Christmas stories! Love, family, and change. Change is hard but sometimes so needed, especially at Christmas. Anything with a kissing bough has me excited and I loved the common thread that bound the novellas together while each having their own unique stories. If you want a great Christmas read, then I recommend Meet Me Under the Kissing Bough!

Redemption (Saint Squad #11) by Traci Hunter Abramson, Blog Tour & Giveaway!

 




Book Summary:

Gage Stewart has spent five years trying to overcome his past. Once an abused and troubled teenager, he has worked tirelessly to move beyond the fateful day he was manipulated into holding a group of teenagers hostage. Now, with a new identity and a college degree in criminal psychology, he accepts an unlikely job teaching others what to do during mass shootings.


At the hotel where his class is held, Gage is immediately drawn to Skyler Prescott, the daughter of the wealthy hotel owner. Gage and Skyler quickly discover a shared desire for normalcy, and their easy friendship soon develops into something more. But after a night out ends in horror when a gunman opens fire in the crowded venue, they make an alarming discovery that threatens more than their relationship. The attack was little more than a publicity stunt to draw out the real target: presidential candidate Senator James Whitmore. Unwilling to become someone’s scapegoat, Gage must now work in tandem with the very men who ended his own life of crime before it began—the Saint Squad.
 


My Review:

Have you ever found an author that just writes amazing story after amazing story? That is Traci Hunter Abramson. Whatever she writes, I am reading it. No questions asked, no reading the blurb is necessary. She is that good. Redemption is the 11th book in the Saint Squad series but can be read as a stand alone. Redemption did not disappoint and grabbed me by the collar and pulled me right inside of Gage’s world. I loved the mix of old and new with The Saint Squad having a presence in the story but it wasn’t entirely their story. Abramson nicely tied the old characters in with the new ones. Senator Whitmore made an appearance and action always follows him. Abramson takes suspense and melds it with the perfect amount of romance, and I could not stop reading it. The emotional journey Gage takes is thought provoking and moving. Another grand slam for Abramson, I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next. I received a copy of this book for free; all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Happy Reading!!!

The Slow March of Light by Heather B. Moore, Book Review





Book Summary:

Sometimes all you have is hope.

In the summer of 1961, a wall of barbed wire goes up quickly in the dead of night, officially dividing Berlin. Aware of the many whose families have been divided, Luisa joins a secret spy network, risking her life to help East Germans escape across the Berlin Wall and into the West.

Bob Inama, a soldier in the US Army, is stationed in West Germany. He’s glad to be fluent in German, especially after meeting Luisa Voigt at a church social. As they spend time together, they form a close connection. But when Bob receives classified orders to leave for undercover work immediately, he doesn’t get the chance to say goodbye.

With a fake identity, Bob’s special assignment is to be a spy embedded in East Germany, identifying possible targets for the US military. But Soviet and East German spies, the secret police, and Stasi informants are everywhere, and the danger of being caught and sent to a brutal East German prison lurks on every corner.

Best-selling author Heather B. Moore masterfully alternates the stories of Bob and Luisa, capturing the human drama unique to Cold War Germany was well as the courage and the resilience of the human spirit.


 My Review:

This morning I finished reading The Slow March of Light by Heather B. Moore and it was life changing. I cannot stop thinking about it. Bob’s story has stayed with me long after I read the last page. I honestly wasn’t sure if I would be able to become engrossed in a story set during the Cold War and the Berlin Wall time period. I should have never doubted it because Heather B. Moore can take the most difficult topics or time periods and make you feel as if you are there. I highly recommend this to any reader. You will not want to put it down. Find a cozy chair and snuggle up, you won’t be going anywhere for a while. This story is phenomenal. I received a copy of this book for free; all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Brides & Brothers by Anneka R. Walker, Blog Tour & Giveaway!!!







Book Summary:

A modern retelling of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers.

Camille Kelly is in real danger of becoming an old maid—at least by Cherish, Montana, standards. She has all but given up on finding Mr. Right—until her broken laptop leads her to Aiden Peterson, a tall, dark, and handsome computer genius. Camille would never have believed her magic moment was right around the corner, but after two whirlwind weeks, she has a ring on her finger and has happily ever after in sight. However, she soon discovers Aiden is part of a daunting package deal . . .

As the eldest of seven brothers, Aiden has never had a problem living under the same roof as his rambunctious siblings. When he falls for Camille, he is confident she’ll fit right into his family’s already bursting home. He thought wrong. Aiden and Camille’s storybook romance comes to a screeching halt when she discovers her new living situation. Not willing to submit to a life mothering a bunch of grown men, Camille has only one option: she embarks on a campaign to improve her new brothers-in-law and marry them off. And what better candidates for wives than her own best friends?

My Review:

Camille and Aiden’s story was fun, natural, and authentic. I loved watching them fall for each other so quickly! But there are always surprises in a relationship when you fall fast. And what a surprise Camille had when she found out she would be living with Aiden’s brothers! It was a crazy situation to be in. I loved this modern take on the movie Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Walker made my dreams come true with this book! Each brother and their story pulled me deeper and deeper into their family. These handsome and kind brothers had me swooning. They are good looking, they dance, they are loyal and kind! What more could you need? Well, I honestly NEED Walker to write a book for each brother so we can see the story unfold from their perspectives! A girl can wish, right? If you want a fun, clean romance that keeps you turning the pages until the very end, then Brides & Brothers is just the book for you! I received a copy of this book for free; all thoughts and opinions are my own.
