Review of “Their Unlikely Protector” by Meghann Whistler

Books by this author are on my always read list. I was really excited to read this novel after reading the blurb. I found it different that in this novel the kids are the woman’s brothers and not her kids. I do not remember reading another book where this is the case so that made this one more interesting. Valerie and Brett have a history that was woven throughout the novel. One of my favorite parts of the book was how Brett interacted with Dylan and Derrick who are Valerie’s twin brothers. This was a heartwarming book. I definitely would recommend it.

Review of “Cheap Tattoos” by Pepper Elliott

Cheap tattoos is a simile which compares a cheap tattoo to compromising in regard to the promises of God and the calling that God has for your life. I could tell that this book was written from a humble place by a guy who knows he has things to work on just like everyone else which makes this book so relatable. It is also written so that anyone can understand it. By that I mean, it is written in a way that will not go over someone’s level of understanding. And even though it says its audience is 13 to 18 year olds, I think that someone older than 18 can also get something good from it. I would definitely recommend this book.

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.
