The Evaporation of Sofi Snow is another winner from Mary Weber. From the action packed page one to the dangerous adventures to find Sofi’s brother this book had me hooked and I want more. The characters are complex and their relationship is complicated, but their connection is strong and I can’t wait to see how it develops over the next two books.
Today’s review is a non-fiction breath of fresh air in a world of bad news. Your Next 24 Hours, One day of Kindness Can Change Everything tears down some lies we believe, that we can’t make a difference.
I had a few books to read ahead of this one, but then, something happened.
March 28th, 2017 was book release day for Catherine West’s latest, The Memory of You and I was fortunate to receive and advanced copy of this book a while back and I have been ITCHING to tell you about it. This story is unpredictable, heart wrenching and delightful all at the same time. Another winner from Catherine West!
Miss Permilia Griswold may have been given the opportunity of a debut into New York high society, but no one warned her she wasn’t guaranteed to “take.”
I just can’t tell you how delighted I am to have read Jen Turano’s latest book, Behind the Scenes, but I will try.
I endured my husbands looks as he put up with me reading and laughing out loud, giggling away (with the occasional snort) from chapter one right to the end. If you have never read a Jen Turano book before, DO IT NOW!! Her hilarious characters, who get themselves caught in hilarious situations are always the highlight of my To-Be-Read pile.
I have been hearing some buzz in the book world about Pepper Basham’s upcoming release, mumblings about swoony heroes and closets and thought, “What are they on about? I will have to investigate further and find out if this book is as good as they say it is?” After all, you can’t just believe what you hear, in this day and age you have to find out for yourself. Make your own informed decisions. I am so glad I did.
Seriously, you will be giggling out loud in the first scene. Pepper is a genius.
Siri Mitchell is one of my favorite authors and so I snapped up this one when I could. Siri Mitchell graduated from the University of Washington with a business degree and worked in various levels of government. As a military spouse, she has lived all over the world, including Paris and Tokyo. Siri enjoys observing and learning from different cultures. She is fluent in French and loves sushi.
I love sushi (as long as there is not raw fish involved) and am NOT fluent in french. What a delight to read Siri’s Flirtation Walk
What a privilege to read and review singer and song writer, Steven Curtis Chapman‘s memoir, Between Heaven & the Real World. I have often said that truth is stranger than fiction and really, you can’t make this stuff up. What an extraordinary story of struggles, hope and purpose. Steven Curtis Chapman is known for his music career and his success as a Christian artist, but this book is so honest and raw, you will get a peek behind the scenes. As I said in my review, “If this book does not touch your heart, nothing will.”
Never Forget, is the last book in the Beacons of Hope Series. A bittersweet moment when you enjoy the book SO MUCH, but know that you have to say goodbye to the series. (On the plus side, there is much more to come from Jody Hedlund, so I will survive.) Never Forget is certainly a book I will not soon forget. Two words: Book Hangover. (It’s a thing!)
Sixty Acres and A Bride. Love this cover, and I was curious about what this book is about, but let me explain: If you know me a little bit, you may know this about me: I NEVER READ THE SYNOPSIS. But having just discovered Regina Jennings, and read For the Record I had to go back and start reading more! I was not disappointment, and this book was full of surprises.
How have I not read a Regina Jennings book before? I can’t tell you how delighted I am to have found her. (Seriously, how had I not read her books before?) I enjoyed this book so much that I am going to immediately tackle her back-list. In her latest, For The Record, you will find a delightful 19th Century read, full of action, mishaps and romance, even thought the hero is reluctantly so. Find out more by reading my
