Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska

Tricia Goyer, Ocieanna Fleiss

Price: 99 cents

Along with Ginny’s adventure, Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss also weave in a story told through letters from long ago which are filled with characters who will steal your heart in a matter of seconds. The letters are a major part of the plot and without them the book would lose part of its charm. In fact, I would really enjoy a book based on the characters from the letters! When you read this book please take my advice and have a box of tissues ready along with ample time to devour each page. As you travel through Glacier Bay your attention to everyday mundane chores such as cleaning may be limited due to the fact that one simply cannot put this book down. I say travel because you really will be transported to Alaska through the pages of this truly heartwarming story minus the long underwear or as they say in my neck of the woods long johns. Happy Reading!

Singer Ginny Marshall is one signature away from the recording contract of her dreams—a deal that would guarantee success for the former foster child, who still struggles to bury the memories of her painful childhood. But Ginny needs advice from the one person who will look out for her best interests—her former fiancé, Brett Miller. She travels to the remote town of Glacier Bay, Alaska, where the town’s colorful characters and stunning scenery provide respite from LA’s pressures. In Glacier Bay, Ginny discovers a box of old letters and is swept up in the love story between Clay, an early missionary to Alaska Territory, and Ellie, the woman who traveled there to be his children’s governess. When Ginny is reunited with Brett in Glacier Bay, will she discover—as Ellie did—that healing and love are sometimes found in the most unexpected places?

The Wedding Dress

Rachel Hauck

Price: $2.99

I was blown away by this beautiful, awe-inspiring tale of one dress that spans–and impacts–the lives of four special women. The Wedding Dress revolves around Charlotte Malone and her discovery of the dress within an old, beaten trunk…and the path down memory lane that it took her on.

Katie McCurdy

Four brides. One Dress.

A tale of faith, redemption, and timeless love.

Charlotte owns a chic Birmingham bridal boutique. Dressing brides for their big day is her gift . . . and her passion. But with her own wedding day approaching, why can’t she find the perfect dress…or feel certain she should marry Tim?

Then Charlotte discovers a vintage dress in a battered trunk at an estate sale. It looks brand-new—shimmering with pearls and satin, hand-stitched and timeless in its design. But where did it come from? Who wore it? Who welded the lock shut and tucked the dog tags in that little sachet? Who left it in the basement for a ten-year-old girl? And what about the mysterious man in the purple vest who insists the dress had been “redeemed.”

Charlotte’s search for the gown’s history—and its new bride—begins as a distraction from her sputtering love life. But it takes on a life of its own as she comes to know the women who have worn the dress. Emily from 1912. Mary Grace from 1939. Hillary from 1968. Each with her own story of promise, pain, and destiny. And each with something unique to share. For woven within the threads of the beautiful hundred-year-old gown is the truth about Charlotte’s heritage, the power of courage and faith, and the timeless beauty of finding true love.

“The story of four loveable women, miraculously bound by one gown, whose lives span a century . . . will take your breath away.” —Beth Webb Hart, bestselling author of Love, Charleston

Another Chance A Christian Romance

Diane Adams

Price: 99 cents

This is a tangled web of truth, lies, and secrets. When Anna comes to Casey’s Institute, she has no idea what she’s in for. This book has the reader so entangled in its spiderweb of intrigue that you can’t put it down! It kept me up until 3 in the morning, and then kept me reading the minute I got up. A fun, engrossing story!

P. Creeden

Anna Brown was nearly forty before she earned her college degree. When she has trouble finding a teaching position in St. Louis, she applies for a substitute’s position at Casey’s Institute, a juvenile detention center located in the Missouri Ozarks. Is it chance or God’s will when a spring snowstorm prevents her from driving home?
Dr. Michael Grant admits he made the wrong decision when he ignored the weather and took Anna to dinner. It’s the first of many misunderstandings, and Michael’s apologies aren’t enough to truly earn Anna’s forgiveness. Every time Anna gives the handsome administrator another chance, it seems he’ll prove he’s no different from any of the other men who have disappointed her.
Michael can’t help being intrigued by this tiny woman, whose behavior is so different than the ordinary. Though she admits she’s afraid of animals, he offers her a job overseeing an experimental pet therapy program. Ignoring his self-imposed rule against fraternizing with those who work at Casey’s, he finds himself seeking every opportunity to get to know her better.
Overcoming a fear of dogs isn’t Anna’s only challenge. Some of the other women resent the special treatment she receives from Dr. Grant, and they’ll do whatever they can to keep the two of them apart. It seems she has inadvertently made an enemy of at least one man as well, and he’ll stop at nothing to come between her and Michael Grant.
It takes a near crisis to open Anna’s eyes to the truth about loyalty, from both animals and people. She’s ready to swallow her pride, if Michael is willing to give her another chance.
Michael blames himself for what happened – he should’ve shared his history in the beginning. Is it too late to tell her now, and ask her to give him another chance?

Southern Fried Sushi: A Novel

Jennifer Rogers Spinola

Price: FREE

Jennifer Rogers Spinola is a new author – in fact, Southern Fried Sushi is her first novel. And it was a good one that I really savored. The chapters were a bit too long for my liking, and the part of the book that was centered in Tokyo was a bit hard for me to follow, but at the same time I was drawn in right off the bat and carried along to the end. It was just sort of an odd, intriguing kind of situation. One thing I really amused by was when she compared pillows to marshmallow peeps. I got a real kick out of that.
The cover is very bright and just makes you want to read it upon first laying your eyes upon it. There was so much that went on in this novel that it’s hard to even summarize anything. It’s packed with hilarity, sadness, frustration and pretty much every emotion you can conceive of. It’s an awesome debut novel for sure. I can’t wait to read the next in the series called Sweet Potato Pie.

Amy Clark

Ride the rollercoaster of Shiloh Jacobs’s life as her dreams derail, sending her on a downward spiral from the heights of an AP job in Tokyo to penniless in rural Virginia.

The Darkest Valley

Rick Dewhurst

Price: FREE

Dewhurst very deftly handles an extremely difficult subject matter. The issues that brewed in the 1990’s setting of The Darkest Valley are still present today and waiting for resolve. Along with Dewhurst, I hope this story triggers some authentic dialogue.

Tina Friesen

In the Cowichan Valley on beautiful Vancouver Island, a pastor’s wife with a deep secret is dying of cancer, his young aboriginal convert is in danger of being grabbed and initiated into Longhouse spirit dancing rituals, and his congregation is throwing him to the wolves.

Tomorrow’s Sun (Lost Sanctuary)

Becky Melby

Price: FREE

Tomorrow’s Sun is Becky Melby’s debut novel and the start of the Lost Sanctuary Series. Book two, Yesterday’s Stardust comes out in the summer and I can not wait. This book was so good. It was a mix of contemporary and historical and it was fun watching the two stories merge together. I really enjoyed the parts of the story that deal with the twins, Adam and Lexi and them getting to know Emily. Also I find it fascinating reading about the underground railroad and how complex it was to help slaves escape. Becky Melby did a great job at weaving the two stories together with complex characters and real emotions. If anyone has read Susan Meissner’s A Sound Among the Trees then you will love this book. Personally I enjoyed this book more and give it 5 stars or more if I could.

Jlwhitney
