Review of “The Escape” by Lisa Harris

“The Escape” is the first book in the US Marshals series by Lisa Harris. The suspense starts from almost the beginning of the book which made this book really easy to get into reading and made it hard to put down. The main characters, US Marshals Madison James and Jonas Quinn, really play well off of each other. The romance to me does not start from the very beginning like the suspense does, but instead it slowly builds which makes it more believable and realistic especially given both of the characters’ backgrounds. There are curve balls thrown your way throughout the novel that make it even more intriguing. If you like suspenseful books with a twist and some romance thrown in, then this book is definitely for you. This was an excellent start to a series.

Review of “A Country Christmas” by Marta Perry and Lee Tobin McClain

This book contains “The Doctor’s Christmas” by Marta Perry and “The Twins’ Family Christmas by Lee Tobin McClain. Both of these stories have similar themes of forgiveness and redemption. In “The Doctor’s Christmas”, Maggie Davis has issues trusting people because of her past and Dr. Grant Hardesty is having a problem letting go of his past as well. Throughout this story, you find yourself rooting for both of them and wishing they would realize they should be together. In “The Twins’ Family Christmas”, Lily Watkins comes to stay at the ranch her aunt owns in order to check on her former roommate’s kids. She is having a hard time not blaming herself for that same roommate’s death. While Pastor Carson Blair who is the late husband of Lily’s former roommate is trying to come to terms with the death of his wife and also give his twins the best Christmas. If you like uplifting Christmas books, then you’ll enjoy both stories that are included in this book.

Review of “Autumn Skies” by Denise Hunter

This is the third book in the “A Bluebell Inn Romance” series. I will start off by saying that you will definitely enjoy this book better if you have not only read the other two but read them in order. Though if you have not, then you will still enjoy this book. As always Denise Hunter has a way of writing her characters and their story that just draws you in from the very beginning. This book is one that you won’t want to put down so be sure you have the time to read it in one sitting if possible or you will have to go through the struggle of putting it down. I do not want to give anything away about the book but the way this book ends will not disappoint those who love a good happy ending. If you read the other two books then you will have already read the stories of Molly and Levi Bennett which are Grace Bennett’s siblings. Grace Bennett is the main female character in the book and her leading man is Wyatt Jennings. She is so down to earth. I could see us becoming friends though I’m not as outdoorsy as she is.

Review of “The Love Note” by Joanna Davidson Politano

This is my second book I have read by Joanna Davidson Politano and I have to say that she is definitely going to be added to my list of authors I like to read. She has such a way of writing her characters that they come to life and jump right off the page or maybe you jump in the book and join them. Because the love note that is brought up early in the book finds its way into many different hands, there are many characters who assume it is for them which brings to light that many of them have secrets. The suspense of these secrets as well as wondering who the note was really intended for and written by make it so this book is hard to put down. If you are into puzzles along with romance, then this book is definitely right up your alley.

Review of “Take Heart” by (in)courage community authors

I love the way this book is set up. It has devotionals written by a variety of writers on a wide array of topics. I feel this will allow it to reach more people. I also love that there are specific prayers at the end of each devotional that is based on the topic of that devotion so if you want to pray but are unsure of what to say this will help you. If you do not have a lot of time to read each day, then that is okay because each devotional can be read separate and they aren’t really long. So far I definitely recommend this book.
