Shannon Brown

This is a really sweet book…not only does it give you great ideas for free activities to do with your kids, it is loaded with resources to help you…Recipes for play dough, bubbles, kites, etc. At the end of the book, there are printable tickets with each activity on them that you can cut out and put in a jar for kids to draw on summer days to decide what to do. I think I might make a summer “bucket list” out of some of the author’s suggestions 🙂

Ruth Logan Herne

I love stories. I really love when a story is told well, when the tale grips my heart and stretches it. This book is all the above. Thank you, Ruth,for doing justice to the story.

Detective Crescent Dietrich vowed never to return to Watkins Ridge. A bullet and her grandmother’s cancer diagnosis changed that. Now she’s back, touching a past she spurned long ago.
Alex Westmore appreciates God’s humor, but when hard-nosed Cress Dietrich is plunked into the middle of the family farm controversy—and his part in the sale of a centennial farm—he’s not laughing. He promised her grandmother secrecy, and Alex always keeps his word. But this time, his pledge might break Cress’s heart.
He wants her trust and love. He knows you can’t have one without the other. But can Cress escape the shadows of the past in time to embrace the simple light of her future? With God’s grace, she can… in Watkins Ridge.

Ann H. Gabhart

This book is very inspirational and heartwarming. The characters and the community are so much like where I grew up that it brings back many childhood memories. The book also has several unexpected twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what is going to happen next. I enjoyed the book very much and highly recommend it.

The Oatmeal Stories

The Oatmeal Stories

Catherine Serrao, Robert Stevens

This is a great read! A great book for kids learning about our history, through this book they can get a first hand account of how things really were!

Jaime Cole

My dad, Robert Russell Stevens, is the oldest of the five children in his family and for that reason he bore the burden of helping his father not only with chores, but whatever else was necessary for their survival.
It was a difficult time during the 1940’s, and life was a constant struggle for his family. He often told us how he went without shoes in the summer, sat alone during school lunch so no one would notice that he had nothing to eat, and slept in the cold attic where snow would drift in under the eaves and onto his back. I referred to these as “the oatmeal stories,” because he also frequently told us about the times they ate nothing but oatmeal for days. I didn’t appreciate these tales. I supposed they were being told for the purpose of making us grateful for what we had. When I set out to write a children’s book about growing up in Maine during simpler times and asked my dad to relate some of his experiences, he began sending stories to me each day via email. Suddenly I was opening my inbox with anticipation, excited to read each new account of his childhood. I was amazed and saddened by what I read. These were not suitable for a children’s book; nevertheless, I thought they should be told. These are the oatmeal stories.

Messiah to the Messed Up: Because I'm a mess, you're a mess, and we all need a Messiah

Messiah to the Messed Up: Because I’m a mess, you’re a mess, and we all need a Messiah

Sue Ciullo

I have started reading many Christian books but finished few. Not only did I finish this book, I had a hard time putting it down. This book is wonderful.

Laura

Spend some time with Jesus and something profound is bound to happen to your heart. Messiah to the Messed Up interlaces rich Scripture narratives with twenty-first century stories. These threads, woven together, create an unforgettable tapestry of the life of Jesus, an image so real that you will feel His presence.

Watch Jesus arrive, parched and sweaty, and converse with a social outcast.
Witness Him dine with people that others shunned.
Wonder at His mercy when He spares an adulteress from execution.
See how Jesus is every bit as present today as He was 2000 years ago.
Watch Him love a teenaged girl who gets drunk on strawberry wine.
Witness His grace in a homeless man who offers an extravagant gift.
Wonder at His mercy as a veteran takes his last breath.

These stories snippets of time with Jesus will change your perspective on the Carpenter from Galilee. Why is that important? Because I m a mess, you re a mess, and we need a Messiah.

Overall, Beauty for Ashes was a great read and I really liked it! If you like historical romances, then I think you’ll enjoy Beauty for Ashes.

Melanie

She’s a beautiful young widow. He’s a Southern gentleman with a thirst for adventure. Both need a place to call home.

After losing her husband in the Civil War, Carrie Daly is scared she will never have the family she longs for. Eligible bachelors are scarce in Hickory Ridge, Tennessee, but Carrie has found love. Not the weak-in-the-knees kind, but something practical. Still, she isn’t quite ready to set a wedding date with Nate Chastain.

Griff Rutledge is a former member of Charleston society, but has been estranged from his family for years. He’s determined to remain unattached, never settling in one place for too long. But when asked to train a Thoroughbred for an upcoming race in Hickory Ridge, he decides to stay awhile.

Despite objections from the townsfolk, and her fear that true happiness has eluded her, Carrie is drawn to Griff’s kindness and charm. It will take a leap of faith for them to open their hearts and claim God’s promise to give beauty for ashes.

The Discovery, A Novel

The Discovery, A Novel

Dan Walsh

I have to say THE DISCOVERY is my favorite DAN WALSH novel. I loved what MR. WALSH did with the storyline. I thought it to be wonderfully unique. The fact that he added history in was an added plus, just the right touch to give me a glimpse into the times without bogging me down with boring details. The voices of Michael and Ben were distinctly different.

Kym McNabney

Gerard Warner was not only a literary giant whose suspense novels sold in the millions, he was also a man devoted to his family, especially his wife of nearly 60 years. When he dies he leaves his Charleston estate to his grandson, Michael, an aspiring writer himself. Michael settles in to write his own first novel and discovers an unpublished manuscript his grandfather had written, something he’d kept hidden from everyone but clearly intended Michael to find. Michael begins to read an exciting tale about Nazi spies and sabotage, but something about this story is different from all of Gerard Warner’s other books. It’s actually a love story.

As Michael delves deeper into the story he discovers something that has the power to change not only his future but his past as well. Laced with suspense and intrigue, The Discovery is a richly woven novel that explores the incredible sacrifices that must be made to forge the love of a lifetime. Author Dan Walsh delivers yet another unique and heartfelt story that will stick with readers long after they turn the last page.

Christine S. Feldman

I love romantic stories and to have these nice plots where the characters are strong and well written was bliss to read. The differences in the type of personalities and how the characters mingle within themselves are great. It is a delight to read how the perfect pairs are made be it Trish and Ian or Nadia and Benji. I loved reading them.
Well Done.

At the Heavenly Bites Bakery, three very different women bake up delectable treats and find romance with some unexpected but equally delectable men. Find out how in these three short and sweet novellas, previously available only as ebooks but finally available as a collection and in paperback form…

PASTELS AND JINGLE BELLS: When Trish Ackerly crosses paths with Ian Rafferty, the former bully of her childhood years, her plans for a comeuppance fall by the wayside as she comes to realize that the man he is now is very different from the boy he used to be—and that a Christmas romance might just be in her future…

LOVE LESSONS: When bakery customer Mrs. Beasley guilts Nadia Normandy into mentoring unsuspecting accountant Benji Garner in the world of dating, Nadia soon discovers that this particular accountant has a charm all his own. And with New Year’s Eve just around the corner, it may be time for Nadia to make a resolution to sweep her protégé off his feet before someone else beats her to it…

PLAYING CUPID: Free-spirited Aimee Beasley’s plans to match her widowed grandmother up with a distinguished elderly gentleman hit a snag when she learns he’s the uncle of their downstairs neighbor, grim Doyle Berkely, a man with whom Aimee butts heads on a regular basis.

The Dreams Of Hannah Williams (Truly Yours Digital Editions)

Linda Ford

What I enjoyed about this story was how Jake and Hannah were able to compromise with each other. It was an entertaining book.

NinerFan

Hannah Williams is not anyone’s responsibility but her own. And she likes it that way. She’s tired of women who need to be taken care of, who give up their identities to “belong” to someone else. Before his death, her father ingrained a wonderful sense of independence in her, and she will be true to his ideal. Since his father died, Jake Sperling has willingly assumed responsibility for his mother, the rest of his family, their ranch, and all else that belongs to the Sperling domain. Caring for his family and preserving their family business are duties he will not desert. So when he meets and falls for Hannah, he expects to fix her problems and take care of her, too. A woman who is determined to be free and make her own choices. A man who is determined to care for every detail in her life. Will God make this match work?

Sandra Gail Needham

Levi and God have a deal: Levi will devote his life to preaching and reaching people with God’s word, and God will bring Levi’s outlaw brother Matt back into the fold. It sounded easy enough at first, until Levi rode into Bonners Ferry, Idaho, and straight into the path of britches-wearing, horse-riding, independent Glory Hamilton. As far as Glory’s concerned, there isn’t a man alive who can be trusted, including a preacher who looks more like an outlaw and confuses her heart. Does God make deals with men—or is Glory just a test of Levi’s faith?

Linda Ford

I have read books from this author and I have always enjoyed her books. This book made me dream because I could relate with the little boy. I enjoyed the love story because of prayers, reflecting on ones self. Keep it up, you are doing very well.

Esmeralda Garcia

Joanna doesn’t know what to do with herself.

With her two younger sisters married and settled in their own homes, Joanna Hamilton is not sure if she wants to run the stopping house in Bonners Ferry, Idaho, on her own. All she needs to do is find a buyer so she can start a new life.

Rudy Canfield travels from place to place as a cowboy. And that suits him just fine. Footloose and fancy-free. Until he takes in his orphaned, ten-year-old nephew, Freddy. And the lovely owner of the stopping house keeps meddling in his business.

As Joanna and Rudy help Freddy learn to trust, they discover that the little boy’s feelings of abandonment strike too close to home. Rudy has known only rejection from the women in his life. And Joanna would be foolish to risk her heart on a cowboy wanderer who reminds her so much of her absentee father.

Can two wounded people learn to trust each other and stop running from love?

Under a Blackberry Moon ( Book #2): A Novel

Serena B. Miller

Under a Blackberry Moon is a historical fiction novel that bridges two different worlds. I also loved that Serena Miller said that the story was roughly based on a true story. That just made it sweeter.

Bookbrat

Just a few days after she gives birth alone in the Northwoods, a recently widowed young Chippewa woman stumbles into a nearby lumber camp in search of refuge and sustenance. Come summer, the camp owner sends Skypilot, his most trusted friend, to accompany Moon Song and her baby on the long and treacherous journey back to her people. But when tragedy strikes off the shore of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula wilderness, Moon Song and Skypilot must depend on each other for survival. With every step they take into the forbidding woods, they are drawn closer together, until the tough questions must be asked. Will she leave her culture to enter his? Will he leave his world to enter hers? Or will they walk away from a love that seems too complicated to last?

With evocative descriptions of a breathtaking landscape, Under a Blackberry Moon will sweep readers into a wild realm where beauty masks danger and only the truly courageous survive, even as the sweet love story along the way tightly grips their hearts.
