Review of “The Road Before Us” by Janine Rosche

This is the second book by Janine Rosche. It is a contemporary split-time novel. As an accountant, the Ponzi scheme is part of what drew me into the book. This book explores so many sides of the humanity in such a real and genuine way that it pulls at the heart strings. It is interesting to see how stories of two of the main characters intertwine. And I also loved the interactions between Jade and Bridger. I will say parts of this novel will have you reaching for a box of tissues though so be ready. It is not your typical romance novel and there is no real suspense but it grasps your attention until the end of the book. It is a good second chance at life and forgiveness novel. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a honest story.

Review of “Between the Sound and Sea” by Amanda Cox

I really enjoy books by Amanda Cox which is one reason I wanted to read this novel. Also, I was excited that it is mostly set in North Carolina. This novel has a mystery to it that drew me into the plot early on. I could not really pick a favorite character because I liked them all. Amanda Cox did such a great job of bringing out the personalities of each of the characters. This novel will have you feeling all the emotions and I would definitely recommend a box of tissues while reading it. I definitely recommend this book to anyone.

Review of “The Blackout Book Club” by Amy Lynn Green

This is the first book I have read by this author and it will not be my last.  It is a World War II book which I am a big fan of reading.  It is set in the United States instead of Europe.  It is split time for one character only and also has multiple narrators.  Amy Lynn Green does an amazing job of bringing out the genuine nature of her characters.  Each one had something that drew me into their particular life story.  I would definitely recommend this book.

Review of “These Tangled Threads” by Sarah Loudin Thomas

I only had previously read one novella by this author but because this book was set in North Carolina at Biltmore Estates I just had to read it. This novel was set during the time of Cornelia Vanderbilt. Part of the plot occurred in Biltmore Village as well as a few other places. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end. It held so much human emotion within the pages. You will find an amazing story of forgiveness of others and self. It is also a story of second chances. You will not regret getting this book to read.

Review of “Yukon Wilderness Evidence” by Darlene L. Turner

I am a fan of books by this author and this book does not disappoint. The suspense starts within the first chapter. The puzzle of who the criminals are in this book was definitely a hard one for me to crack which made the book more interesting. I never correctly guessed the culprits before it was told to me. It had some really good twists and turns in this novel. I would recommend to anymore.
