Review of “The Mistletoe Countess” by Pepper Basham

If you like Christmas, romance and mysteries, then this is the book for you. When I first started this book, I was afraid it was going to be a slow read; however, it was anything but slow. From almost the beginning, you are left wondering if someone is out to get Fredrick Percy and if so, then why would they want to hurt him. I also found myself rooting for Gracelynn Ferguson because she was just so likable in this story. I was so glad that Gracelynn and Fredrick were the two that ended up getting married instead of her sister and him. This book was definitely one I would recommend to anyone.

Review of “A Flicker of Light” by Katie Powner

This is my first book that I have read by Katie Powner and the second book she has had published. I first wanted to read this book because the blurb for the book grabbed my attention. I just had a feeling this book was going to be a good one and I was not wrong. While reading this book, I feel as if I know these people personally. One of the characters has dementia and I have had a couple of family members with this disease so I could really relate to this experience from her family’s perspective. Even though none of the characters go from childhood to adulthood in this book it still feels somewhat like a coming of age story to me. I recommend this book to anyone.

Review of “A View Most Glorious” by Regina Scott

This is the third book in the American Wonders Collection series. The main female character, Coraline Baxter, is a suffragette which I find very interesting. I thought it was a very intriguing concept that to garner attention and support for the local suffragette movement, Cora is going to climb a mountain. She is also hoping to not have to marry her mother’s choice for her. The other main character, Nathan Hardee, is also very intriguing. He has a sad but interesting back story. I also like that he does not try to be someone he is not to please people. He is going to be guiding Coraline up a mountain. This novel also has several really good supporting characters. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book.

Review of “A Christmas in the Alps” by Melody Carlson

I had high expectations for this book because it is a Christmas book by Melody Carlson. I was really excited to read it. I was not disappointed at all. This is a great heart warming novel in which I find myself enjoying the characters even the ones that you know would aggravate you in real life because they bring dimension to the storyline. It also has some mystery to the story adding to the already great plot. The only thing that I wish was that the book was a full novel instead of just a novella.

Review of “A Chance for the Newcomer” by Lisa Carter

I have only read a few books by Lisa Carter so far but I will definitely say I have put her on my must read list. This book did not disappoint and not just because it is set in the mountains of North Carolina either. Kara Lockwood and Will McKenzie both have pasts that they need to come to terms with and leave in the past. Both of these characters will grab at your heart and have you rooting for them to finally open up their eyes to see they should be together. Also, Will’s dad and son as well as Kara’s foster mom make for some amazing secondary characters. This book had my attention from the beginning to the end.
