Paradise Valley (The Daughters of Caleb Bender Book #1)

Dale Cramer

Price: FREE

While I am not Amish fiction’s #1 fan, I have read a few Amish titles which I’ve liked, and most particularly, Levi’s Will by Dale Cramer. I’ve waited a long time to get my hands on a new book by Cramer, and I was not disappointed. The saga of the Daughters of Caleb Bender begins with Paradise Valley, a fascinating introduction to the Bender family in the early 1900s. Knowing that Paradise Valley is based on actual events with added details from the author’s own family history made this story especially interesting to me. This book is a heart-tugging look at the life of one Amish family, their faith and unwavering devotion to family, hard work and God. I was drawn into this story and left wanting more.

Camille Eide

An Amish settlement in Ohio has run afoul of a law requiring their children to attend public school. Caleb Bender and his neighbors are arrested for neglect, with the state ordering the children be placed in an institution. Among them are Caleb’s teenage daughter, Rachel, and the boy she has her eye on, Jake Weaver. Romance blooms between the two when Rachel helps Jake escape the children’s home.

Searching for a place to relocate his family where no such laws apply, Caleb learns there’s inexpensive land for sale in Mexico, a place called Paradise Valley. Despite rumors of instability in the wake of the Mexican revolution, the Amish community decides this is their answer. And since it was Caleb’s idea, he and his family will be the pioneers. They will send for the others once he’s established a foothold and assessed the situation.

Caleb’s daughters are thrown into turmoil. Rachel doesn’t want to leave Jake. Her sister, Emma, who has been courting Levi Mullet, fears her dreams of marriage will be dashed. Miriam has never had a beau and is acutely aware there will be no prospects in Mexico.

Once there, they meet Domingo, a young man and guide who takes a liking to Miriam, something her father would never approve. While Paradise Valley is everything they’d hoped it would be, it isn’t long before the bandits start giving them trouble, threatening to upset the fledgling Amish settlement, even putting their lives in danger. Thankfully no one has been harmed so far, anyway.

The Dunn Deal (A Christine Sterling Mystery)

Catherine Leggett

Price: FREE

I never knew it before, but I am finding out that I have an honest preference for cozy mysteries. They are fun, and amateur sleuths need to be tough, strong women with charisma and a smattering of bravery to do what they do. Christine Sterling does not disappoint. She is an honest and forthright character whose curiosity and tenacity put her in trouble. Luckily she has the charisma and faith to get her out of it. I’ll be looking forward to more of her adventures.

P. Creeden

Rumors of dirty cops, midnight meetings on Friday the thirteenth, and a forested militia masquerading as a religious cult—these and other peculiar elements complicate the senseless murder of Deputy Sheriff Baxter Dunn, son-in-law of Christine Sterling’s best friend and mentor Zora Jane Callahan.

The subject may be frightful, but amateur sleuth Christine Sterling tackles it with her characteristic blend of snoopiness and tenacity, especially after Molly, her beloved border collie, is dog napped in retaliation for Christine’s intrusion into matters that are none of her business.

National media attention fuels the escalating conflict between Christine and the authorities. Constance Boyd, a renowned newswoman, arrives to launch her own inquiry into the murder. When she crosses paths with Zora Jane, a strong Christian with a heart for spreading the Gospel, she is confronted with Truth. Zora Jane challenges postmodern humanistic beliefs using scripture. But Miss Boyd clings to her perverted “religion.”

Suspicions develop concerning which of the lawmen can be trusted, if any. Truth is challenged on every side. When a second murder jolts the tranquil community, Christine gets tagged as the prime suspect. Who will rescue Molly if Christine ends up behind bars?

In the Company of Secrets (Postcards from Pullman Book #1)

Judith Miller

Price: FREE

This was an interesting and lovely historical tale which is the beginning of what promises to be an enjoyable series. It features a fully developed cast of secondary characters whom the reader is sure to embrace especially where the author fully develops their individual personalities in orchestrating their importance of supporting Olivia as she attempts to dig her way out of the mountain of lies. Olivia initially felt all the blame belonged mostly to Charlotte starting with hiding the fact of her unborn child’s illegitimacy and from preventing anyone from discovering that Charlotte was from nobility; a class distinction that had little importance in America. From the warm and loving Mrs. DeVault Olivia finds a friend and a guide in discovering Jesus and seeking forgiveness of those she’s deceived. Ultimately, Olivia would be extremely disappointed in Charlotte by her betrayal when she’s left in a dire predicament by Charlottes’s immaturity and selfishness.

The truth could cost her everything….

Olivia Mott didn’t intend to lie. Somehow, it just happened. And wasn’t it all Lady Charlotte’s fault anyway?

Now Olivia’s position as assistant chef at Pullman’s elegant Hotel Florence is dependant upon her keeping her secrets. And sometimes lies have a way of leading to other lies. Should Olivia admit her real past and accept the consequences or keep quiet in order to preserve her comfortable new circumstances?

Deception seems to be part of everyday life in the company town of Pullman, Illinois, where the grand Pullman Palace Car is manufactured. Samuel Howard, Olivia’s friend and the town manager, seems to think everything is fine, but Olivia observes something quite different. Could it be that Olivia is not the only one harboring secrets?
