Saving Mossy Point: In the Fifty-First State of Superior (Great Lakes Romances Book 17)
Saving Mossy Point: In the Fifty-First State of Superior (Great Lakes Romances Book 17)
Price: $4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed reading this story in an afternoon, July 3, 2015
I enjoyed reading this story in an afternoon. The main character is my age and like me from a small town which has it's fair share of characters in every shape, size, and personalities. I felt right at home and understood much of the wear and tear that can happen to those involved in small town ways and how important it is to have people who are willing to spend time on volunteer projects so life can continue on to the benefit of the town and the area. I have friends that live in the UP and enjoyed reading about the area in the delightful descriptions the author provided. It was also refreshing to read a story that wasn't filled with sex and murder. I believed that characters and their peculiarities especial how Betty prayed for God's help and protection but still worried continually about how she was going to work things out when the chaos was going to start which is such a common and totally human reaction. Few real people pray and then don't get anxious when the answer doesn't pop up in front of them immediately. Definitely worth reading for all ages.

I received this book free as a participant in a blog tour. I was not obliged to give a favourable review.


Some Things Never Change (Elmo Jenkins - Book Two)
Some Things Never Change (Elmo Jenkins - Book Two)
Price: $2.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good light read, May 23, 2015
I needed some light reading and I picked the correct book. It was a free Kindle download and worth it. I haven't read the first book in the series but I didn't need it for references, this book stands on it's own. I laughed quite a lot while reading it. It is about a young minister's first position in a mega-church in which he had interned the year before. He has a quirky sense of humour and, although it got old fast, a habit of dealing in puns and metaphors for jokes. There were some good examples of church politics and the typical reactions of a new-to-the-church-political-scene of a young idealistic minister. While learning about having a position in the church administration, Elmo is also learning about what it means to marry a woman. Father Ted has some wise words for him as he realizes that marriage is quite different from dating. All in all a great light read.


Seattle Quake 9.2 (A Jackie Harlan Mystery Book 1)
Seattle Quake 9.2 (A Jackie Harlan Mystery Book 1)
Price: $4.98

3.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking disaster story,not so much mystery story, April 5, 2015
This story, obviously written before 2000 and republished for 2010 kindles, is rather difficult to review. I downloaded it in April of 2015 because it was listed as a mystery but it didn't read like a mystery at all. In fact I forgot it was a mystery until I went to review it, right after I finished it! Rather than a who-done-it mystery it is a story about ham operators and a few other interrelated people during a major earthquake in Seattle. I think it was suppose be about how one of the characters Christina disappeared and how Jackie Harlan finds her. However, it was really more about the ham operators and the only radio station that is able to get back on the air, a start up station in an attic run by 2 gentlemen. The story of the earthquake was heart rendering, and breath stopping, and detailed. The mystery simply wasn't really there except in the first and last chapters. The story of the earthquake was great, the mystery not. There were many mistakes in language and definitely poor, if any, proof reading. I was totally involved in the earthquake and it's devastation and effect on the characters so didn't really mind the mistake much. If you are hyper critical of proof reading and language mistakes then stay away from the book; if you are interested in disaster interaction then it was a great read.

These stories are just the right length for holiday reading. If I plan to read longer, I read 2 stories, if I just wanted a break away and some peace I read 1 story. Enjoyed them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, April 12, 2014
Great sci-fi read. Even though it contained all the grisly aspects of war, abduction, and weird aliens and alien worlds it was easy to read, not overwhelming, nor gory. The two humans who were reactivated; although the same age, where from different decades and their differing reactions to the situations where consistent with their original decade without being overdone. Since I lived through the 60's and 2012 I could understand their problems easily and was quite impressed with how everything was handled. I found myself thinking occasionally throughout the book of similar situations that had happened in Star Trek, Star Wars, and Galaxy. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary to me during the story so I found myself flowing with it rather than stopping to analyze it which really helped to make it enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on the principles of prosperity, February 17, 2014
Excellent book written in the style of Og Mandano. The teacher tells the story and the pupil learns steps or principles that will help him progress along life's highway on a path that would be approved by God. In this book the grandfather is telling the grandson how to have a bountiful prosperous life without getting into trouble or over extending himself by relating the story of how his mentor taught him. Each chapter has a basic point which the grandson deduces and then lives it for 3 years refining it to suit his life and learning from trials and errors how to apply that point. I liked the places where the grandfather learned from his mentor that not all the Christian beliefs are actually based on the words of the bible such as the belief that money is sinful. It is not sinful, it is just money. The sin is when you put money before God. The apostles were rich as were men like Abraham, so when Jesus told the rich man to give away his money they were surprised and asked if Jesus expected them to give their's away too. That's when he pointed out that the man was putting his money before God and that was where the sin was. This is an excellent book with 12 principles that apply to every day life and not just to prosperity. It will stay in my collection to be reread many times.

I received this book through Thomas Nelson in exchange for a review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Christian Western, January 28, 2014
This review is from: Claiming Mariah (Paperback)
This was an excellent Western story of how the power of God and prayer can overcome all the lies that have been told by the old generation and the current people around you. Mariah has always believed and loved her father, Slade has always hated him, how do they reconcile the past with the future. Mariah's grandmother is a very wise Christian lady with a great sense of humour, kindness, and a way of looking at reality through God's eyes. Mariah shows great strength of character once she overcomes her shock. The characters are well developed and I became quite involved in their tension, mysteries, and dangerous exploits. The love and protection that Mariah showed for her sister is quite touching and certainly threw Slade off as did his brother's acceptance and respect for Mariah.
I received my free kindle review copy from Tyndale House in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, January 27, 2014
This review is from: A New Resolution (Paperback)
I enjoyed this book. It wasn't the regular romance novel, rather along with the romance, it had issues that pertained to the environmental area such as over fishing, illegal fishing, marijuana growing, and racial and cultural inequalities. The author had me right in the area and I've never been there. I liked that the 2 main characters had both learned about God in their adult lives. They had tasted the life of so called sexual freedom and discovered that it wasn't all it was cracked up to be. This intensified their emotional stress when the sexual tension between them was high. I liked the point where the author has Nate, who was brought up with a Christian influence, realize as he read his mother's bible that he really didn't know what a relationship with God was really like or that it was a choice. A definite great read with mystery, murder, emotional insecurities, and romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent mystery, January 22, 2014
The third book in the series didn't disappoint. The pace was fast and exciting. This book could stand on it's own quite easily but reading the other 2 books would definitely put you in the mood for more mystery. Darcy's character received great background build. The only thing that disappointed me was the lack of focus on Gage even though he was the secondary lead in the story, he is part of the McKenna family rather than Darcy but then I guess the series is more about the courage of women. In following the Courage theme Darcy faced many situations where it took her reliance on God to get her to come through the physical and psychological trials. Some of the twists were expected, some were not. All in all a great mystery read.
