In-Laws and Outlaws by Kate Fulford

This was a fun read. There were many twists and turns. The main characters ran the gamut from really unlikeable to almost likable. All had their hidden and in son cases not so hidden agendas. I received a free copy of the book from NetGalley and Thistle Publishing in exchange for my honest review. Thank … Continue reading In-Laws and Outlaws by Kate Fulford

The Sixth Day by Catherine Coulter; J.T. Ellison

Somewhere around chapter five in reading The Sixth Day, the theme song to Mighty Mouse started playing in my head. For the rest of the book, it would not stop. Nicholas enters and there goes "Here I come to save the day.” Mike enters and the same thing. Nicholas calls Adam and oops there it … Continue reading The Sixth Day by Catherine Coulter; J.T. Ellison

Your First Novel Revised and Expanded Edition by Ann Rittenberg; Laura Whitcomb; Camille Goldin

This is an excellent book for aspiring writers. Within the covers is valuable advice on writing, publishing and working with an agent. The first ten chapters on the art of writing were extremely valuable to me. I highlighted many sections and will be referring to them as I continue to practice the craft. Part II … Continue reading Your First Novel Revised and Expanded Edition by Ann Rittenberg; Laura Whitcomb; Camille Goldin

Reconstructing the Gospel by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove

This was a book I was quite interested in reading based on the description. After finishing it and thinking about it for a while I must say, it was not the book I thought it would be. Instead of a book that offered possibilities, it offered despair. Instead of offering solutions, it offered setbacks. Instead … Continue reading Reconstructing the Gospel by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove

Wartime Brides and Wedding Cakes (Wartime Bakery) by Amy Miller

Somehow, I missed that Wartime Brides and Wedding Cakes is the second in a series. I have not read the first but will rectify that very soon. In this case, it does not matter if you have read the first. This is definitely a standalone novel. Set in a town in the UK during World … Continue reading Wartime Brides and Wedding Cakes (Wartime Bakery) by Amy Miller

Before and Again by Barbara Delinsky

Before and Again is Barbara Delinsky at her best. The title, Before and Again intrigued me. The “before” I understood to be the past unpleasant events of the story. The word “again” though made me think that the “before” would be happening a second time. This I did not want. I looked up the definition … Continue reading Before and Again by Barbara Delinsky
