2.0 out of 5 stars Pass, March 31, 2015
This book was hard to read. The characters are frustrating and show very little growth. I didn't like any of them. The plot would have worked better with a novel because I didn't understand April's actions at all.
I also was a little disappointed with the lack of spiritual emphasis. I don't like books to "preach" to me, but I do expect Christian characters to mention God/have their lives reflect their salvation. Overall, I'm disappointed in this book.
I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.

Susan May Warren is so good at creating dynamic families. I love reading her books because she creates a town full of unique people with a story to tell.
This one is no exception. The characters are well-developed and unique. The plot is fast and has a few twists here and there.
Overall, a fantastic read.

4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this mystery by Donn Taylor, March 21, 2015
This review is from: Rhapsody in Red (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this mystery by Donn Taylor. It was well-written, and I liked the main characters (Press and Mara). They were unique and an interesting pair.
The mystery was intriguing without being too detailed about the crimes.
Overall, I really liked this book and plan to read more by the author

I've been hearing about Melissa Tagg's books for a long time now, and I finally read her first. I enjoyed it. It's a sweet story with well-developed characters who are likeable even though they make stupid decisions.
I like the author's writing voice. She's got a fresh style--just a great way with words, especially the similes.
Looking forward to reading another by her soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great first book about JFK's death, March 11, 2015
Great book about the events leading up the assassination of JFK and then the aftermath.
The pictures add to the story, and the narrative is age appropriate/easy to read considering this is a YA book.
Good addition to a history class' library and perfect for a student interested in JFK.

I really enjoyed this book.
When the race happened at the middle of the book, I wondered how Hunter would continue the story. I shouldn't have worried. The story kept unfolding with a couple twists I didn't see coming but really enjoyed reading.
I loved the characters, especially Madison's vibrant, unique family.

Fans of Christian fiction, especially those who enjoy a series featuring members of a family, will enjoy this book.


The Secret of Pembrooke Park

Price: $9.01

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, March 7, 2015
This is my first book by Julie Klassen. I had been hearing what a great author Julie is, so I was excited to read this one even though it looked a bit long.
I was not disappointed. I loved the setting of the book. It felt like an additional character. Abigail, the heroine, wasn't my favorite character in the book, but I liked her. William was likable although a bit forward for a preacher of that time. I loved Leah and the history/mystery surrounding the house most of all.
The plot was layered carefully and artfully. I enjoyed the plot and even though the book was long, it didn't feel cumbersome.

I recommend this for fans of Christian Regency novels.

I was given this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.

Elizabeth Maddrey's best book!
I loved the characters. Paige and Jackson were well-developed, and I liked them individually and together.
I also liked the ideas of politics and living off the land. I wasn't sure how they'd go together, but the author did it well.
A must-read for fans of Christian fiction.
