Review of “The Wedding Veil” by Kristy Woodson Harvey

I have read only one of her books before this one and it had several curse words but no explicit sexual material that I could remember. However, I do not remember which curse words it included. Even though I usually read Christian fiction or clean fiction, I decided to give this author one more try because this book had my favorite North Carolina attraction in it which is Biltmore Estate. This novel is a split time novel which is set during the time of the Vanderbilts and also present day. I was disappointed but not surprised that this book also had curse words in it. Because I could not remember if there was any sexual material in her previous book I read and any sexual innuendos, I was not sure what to expect of that in this one. I was hoping that there would not be any but there was some which though were more than I would have liked they at least were short. This book was from the point of view of three women and some a little disjointed at times even though two of the women were related. I personally do not want to read anymore books by this author due to the curse words and slight sexual material. I would have enjoyed it much better and passed it on to someone else if those things had not been included. I also do not think the story would have suffered without them; in fact, I feel the story would have been much better if they had been left out.

Review of “Love on a Whim” by Suzanne Woods Fisher

This is the third novel in the Cape Cod Creamery series. The main female character is Brynn Haywood and she is the best friend of the main female character from the first novel in the series. I absolutely loved this book. However, when I finished this novel, I found myself wanting it to last longer. I would really love it if the author wrote another book in this series. Overall, I would recommend this read.

Review of “Hidden in the Night” by Elizabeth Goddard

I really like books by Elizabeth Goddard. This is the third in the Missing in Alaska series. Even though the books build on each other some, you can still read it even if you have not read the previous two books. This novel has several things going on that I tried to piece together while reading it. Also, there was more to Ivy’s story than was originally told and I kept trying to figure that out as well. I thought that there was a good balance with romance and suspense. I would definitely recommend this novel.

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.
