Review of “Breach of Honor” by Janice Cantore

I am a big fan of Janice Cantore’s books which is one reason that I purchased this book. I also thought the plot sounded really interesting. I will say that if you are sensitive to certain serious subjects that you may not find this book is for you. It does mention domestic violence and suicide. Also part of the book takes place within a jail. However, if you are able to read about these things, then I think you would like this book. It is like a puzzle to solve which is one thing I enjoy. I am a fan of puzzles and trying to figure out things before I am told the solution. All in all I would say this book is well written.

Review of “In Search of a Prince” by Toni Shiloh

I have read several books by Toni Shiloh. The first thing that attracted me to this particular Toni Shiloh book was the beautiful cover. I also really like the main character’s name, Brielle. I stumbled a little with the other language that was included though I was happy there was a dictionary of what the words meant at the end. However, this did not takeaway from the story at all. In the beginning of the novel, Brielle finds out that her mother left out a huge detail when telling her about her father and his family. During the book, you follow Brielle’s transition from ordinary American citizen to African princess. I think the author did a great job in making Brielle relatable. The way she reacted to the secret she learns to me seemed the same as the way I would have reacted. She does not automatically decide that she wants to be a princess instead she is more concerned with getting to know her father’s family. I really appreciated this about her. I felt like this story could really teach some good life lessons and I really enjoyed reading it. Another thing that drew me into the story was the friendship between Brielle and Iris. I really liked their conversations and interactions.

Review of “The Clause in Christmas” by Rachael Bloome

I was drawn to this book because of the cover and the fact that it is a Christmas book. However, once I started reading it and realized the main female character, Cassie Hayward, loves coffee as much or more than I do, I really started liking this book. I cannot relate to the fact that she does not love Christmas and also had a hard childhood though. The author of this book does a great job of describing the town and secondary characters to the point where I feel like I am there. The town of Poppy Creek definitely sounds like a town I would love to either live in or at least visit especially during the Christmas season. As for the secondary characters, they range from a grumpy old man you could call Scrooge to a really sweet older lady who knits in a rocking chair in Luke Davis’s, the main male character, law office lobby. And on top of it all, you get to see Cassie begin to fall in love with not only Luke but Christmas itself. For anyone who absolutely loves Christmas books, this is the book for you.

Review of “An Orphan’s Hope” by Christina Miller

This is the second book I have read by Christina Miller. This story revolves around two main characters, Erin Tucker and Jase Armstrong. However, some of my favorite characters come from the family of secondary characters and these characters really seem like a family in this story. One of those characters that I love so much is Miss Fannie. Miss Fannie is being cared for by Erin. Jase also helps her out with different things. Both are living at Rosewood which is the house owned by Miss Fannie. She is such a sweet person. I find one of the best ways to decide if a book is good or not is whether characters like Miss Fannie are just as lovable as the main characters. This is definitely a book I would be happy to live in.

Review of “Undercurrent of Secrets” by Rachel Scott McDaniel

This is the second book by Rachel Scott McDaniel that I have read and I was not disappointed at all. The plot of the novel intrigued me which is why I ordered it. At the beginning of the book, I did not realize just how good the mystery was going to be. The author grabs your attention from the first page and keeps it all the way until the end. The setting of the majority of the story is also really cool because it is that of a steamboat. The two main couples are so interesting to read about. One couple being from the current time and one being of the past as this is a split-time novel. Also, how the past is connected to the present is a really cool puzzle. I definitely recommend this book.
