All Dressed Up in Love: A March Wedding Story (A Year of Weddings Novella Book 4)
All Dressed Up in Love: A March Wedding Story (A Year of Weddings Novella Book 4)
Offered by HarperCollins Publishing
Price: $3.79

5.0 out of 5 stars All Dressed Up in Love, March 1, 2015
ALL DRESSED UP IN LOVE is a lighthearted approach to romance. Tara is a go-getter, a fighter, and she’s willing to do what it takes. Greg is proud that he hasn’t sacrificed his family in his ride to the heights, but then realizes he has… I liked that both of them had issues to work through, decisions to make, and the faith message was medium strong.

This was a fun book to read. I fell in love with the characters and had to keep reading to find out what happened with them. Would Tara earn her law degree and return home to her destiny? Or would she follow her dream job where it may take? Would Greg cut his losses, liquidate his mother’s business and follow his dreams to New York City? Or would he fight to keep someone else’s dreams alive?

Serving Up a Sweetheart: A February Wedding Story (A Year of Weddings Novella Book 3)
Offered by HarperCollins Publishing
Price: $3.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Serving Up a Sweetheart, February 28, 2015
SERVING UP A SWEETHEART starts slow, but it continues on with a steady pace. Meadow and Colin have a history and Colin will have to work overtime to even begin to breach the walls she erected.

Colin is a sweetheart, willing to step in and help Meadow with her catering, even while he remodels her house and holds down his father’s business while he goes for cancer treatments. I would’ve liked to have seen some closure to some threads that were brought up and left untrimmed.

Meadow has a lot of hurt to work through. I hurt for her. I was proud she raised above her circumstances enough to build a successful business, but saddened that she couldn’t allow herself to trust anyone except a retired teacher and her sister. I wanted to see Colin succeed in becoming her friend.

If you like Zondervan’s Wedding series, you will want to read SERVING UP A SWEETHEART. A great collection of novellas.

Title; SECRETLY YOURS
Author: Valerie Comer
Publisher: Green Words Media

Genre: Valentine contemporary romance novella

A Christian Romance Novella for Valentine's Day

Chef Lindsey Solberg agrees to cater the church's Valentine's Day fundraising banquet as a favor to her teen sister, but she's shocked to discover the bad boy from her high school days is now Riverbend's youth pastor. Seriously? How could he have changed that much?

Nick Harrison has prayed for years for an opportunity to make amends. Now Lindsey's back in Riverbend and won't give him the time of day. What's a guy to do except leave a trail of gifts from a secret admirer?

Lindsey's heart takes a beating when she realizes the boy who was never good enough is now a far better man than she deserves.

SECRETLY YOURS is an adorable Valentine romance with realistic characters. I couldn’t help but fall in love with Nick and he is really creative with his secret admirer gifts. Loved it.

I loved the strong faith message in this book and the way Lindsey grows in her faith. I didn’t like that she disrespected her step-father’s authority and told him off in front of her half-sister. I understand why she does, but it is teaching her sister that’s okay to disrespect her parent.

Over all, this was a great Valentine themed novella and I enjoyed reading it and getting to know these characters. Recommended.

91 pages. Ebook only. 4.5 stars

Shines very bright despite being so small. Definitely not something you'd want to shine in peoples eyes except for defensive purposes.It also feels lightweight (which is good) and kinda cheap (which is bad), but hopefully it'll hold up to Maglite's name.


Betting on Hope (A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance Book 1)
Betting on Hope (A Four of Hearts Ranch Romance Book 1)
Offered by HarperCollins Christian Publishing
Price: $7.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Betting On Hope, February 26, 2015
My thoughts: BETTING ON HOPE is a great read. I enjoyed getting to know Maggie and Tru. Maggie is insecure, klutzy, and second-guessing herself. Not to mention, terrified of horses. Tru on the other hand is confident, wary of reporters, and a well-seasoned cowboy. I couldn’t help but fall in love with both of them.

There is a secondary character, Jenna, in the book, whose situation is heartbreaking. I cried. Maggie’s story is also sad, but she—and Jenna—struggle to rise above their history and make something of themselves—to do what it takes to succeed.

The book is fairly predictable. I knew what was coming long before it got there. But it was still a good read and I loved the chemistry between Tru and Maggie, I enjoyed watching them fall in love, and I didn’t want to put the book down. Ms. Clopton is one of my favorite cowboy authors and I can’t wait to read the next book in this series, Counting on a Cowboy, coming August 2015.

Don’t miss BETTING ON HOPE. 4.5 stars


Hidden Agenda (Love Inspired Suspense)
Hidden Agenda (Love Inspired Suspense)
by Christy Barritt
Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: $5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Agenda, February 26, 2015
HIDDEN AGENDA is a based on a secondary character in Ms. Barritt’s holiday novel, High Stakes Holiday Reunion. That was a great book, and romantic suspense fans will want to read it, even though HIDDEN AGENDA stands alone. I want to go back and reread that book, since I don’t remember Ed from it.

Neither Ed or Bailey were very trusting. They were both suspicious of the other, with good reason. Ed believed his father was murdered. The only suspect he can see is Bailey—especially when he discovers she’s named in the will.

But there is someone else there, someone apparently living in the mansion with them, and watching their every move. What bothered me most is he kept threatening Bailey and telling her that if she values her sister’s life she won’t tell Ed, yet the killer keeps leaving obvious clues that he’s there and threatening her—and leaving them where Ed can find them. Bailey wasn’t too smart to not pick up on the fact that Ed—who is a lawyer and a CIA agent—is intelligent enough to figure things out on his own. And the “bad guy” wasn’t the brightest crayon in the box either.

The story is well written with plenty of red herrings to keep the reader guessing who-dun-it. I learned some things I didn’t know about the world of espionage. Interesting book with lots of action. Love Inspired Suspense likes the heroine kept scared and on the run in their books and Ms. Barritt succeeds in writing edge-of-your-seat romantic suspense.

A spooky mansion. Faulty electricity. A murder to solve. A fle
dgling romance. Don’t miss HIDDEN AGENDA.

Lone Star Intrigue (Lone Star Intrigue Series)

Edition: Paperback
Price: $9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Lone Star Intrigue, February 22, 2015
Two sweet romantic suspenses. They are rather predictable at times, and we know who the bad guy is the entire time since that point of view is included. We know why he does everything he does, which eliminated the spill everything dump at the end, which is overdone but at the same time it left no questions for the reader and there were no surprises. I liked that it was about two brothers, and I liked that they had a great relationship and work so well together.

Princess Hope Sticker and Activity Book (The Princess Parables)
Princess Hope Sticker and Activity Book (The Princess Parables)

5.0 out of 5 stars Princess Hope Sticker & Activity Book, February 19, 2015
The Princess sticker and activity books are really cute. I took them to church for my youngest daughter to do during service (to keep her quiet) and she worked through them both quickly. She was a bit frustrated that the stickers didn’t seem to go anywhere. She put a few out, but ended up using the rest to decorate paper.

In addition to stickers, the Princess Activity books include:

 word searchs
 color by number
 find the differences
 coloring/drawing
 codes to figure out messages
 matching
 mazes

Only sixteen pages, they were too short ad she was done with them long before the sermon ended. I think she was disappointed by that, too. I would like to see them longer, with more than one of each activity, and maybe pictures they can color and hav places for the stickers.

My daughter still told me to give it five stars because she enjoyed doing them. And she does recommend them for other little girls. A neat gift idea for your favorite 4 – 8 year old girl’s Easter basket.
