God’s Daughter by Heather Day Gilbert is a must read for historical fiction fans, those interested in Viking lore and culture, or just anyone looking for an emotionally charged and gripping read. It is written from the perspective of a Viking woman named Gudrid sometime around 1000 AD when these fierce warriors were exploring the northern seas. Most of the tale is told from a first person, present…

Paint Me Althena - by Naomi Musch - a review

Paint Me Althena is a story about second chances. Ava abandoned her family three years ago in a quest to find herself – or so she claimed. But fulfillment continues to sidestep her at every turn. Then, unlikely circumstances throw her and her estranged husband Ethan back into each others’ lives. Learning to trust again isn’t easy for either of them, especially with meddlesome in-laws, complicated new relationships, and a mountain of guilt. At times I was frustrated with the heroine’s choices…

Learning to Trust - a review

This is the fourth and final installment in the ‘Sacred Vows’ Series by Michelle Sutton. It continues to chronicle the lives of three individuals that we’ve met earlier in the series – Hope, Tony, and Jimmy. Hope is now a widow, and perhaps this part of the story is the most ‘romantic’ of the three threads as she embarks on a new relationship. Tony, Hope’s former lover, has also found true love, but his relationship with his new wife is not always stable and they must continue to seek God to…

The Jewel Trilogy - a review

The Jewel Trilogy by Halle Bridgeman follows the lives of three half-sisters who rise from a traumatic childhood of poverty and abuse to be strong, independent women of faith. I really enjoyed reading this series about Robin, Maxine and Sarah. It is actually a four book set with a ‘novella’…

Daystar - a review

Daystar by Kathy Tyers definitely touches a spiritual cord, while taking the reader on a fast paced adventure to unknown galaxies. Even at a daunting 650 pages, the story maintained a great pace and was engaging throughout. There was enough pseudo-scientific mumbo jumbo (which Sci-fi writers…

Descended - Jett - a review

DESCENDED by Dana Pratola is a romance first and speculative second, although the premise of a man who can make himself invisible due to some kind of supernatural lineage is enough to put it in that category. There is a lot of great description and enough surprises to keep it interesting. Jett, the hero, uses his gift in ways that seem a paradox at times, but are ultimately for good. Aspiring artist Haven falls in love…

Secrets of the Six Figure Author

I must admit, when I read the title of the book Secrets of the Six Figure Author by Tom Corson-Knowles, I was skeptical. But once I started reading I found it was a practical, easy to read books with TONS of great tips.

Letting Go - a review

Lawyer Diane Simmons is beautiful and successful on the outside, but beneath this facade are some deeply rooted issues and insecurities that stem from an abusive childhood. Single father Dave is at risk of losing his adopted son and seeks Diane’s counsel. This is not the typical shallow love story, however. There is so much depth to this one in terms of the human emotion and the character development. In typical Sutton fashion, there are some ‘touchy’ subjects that surface, (and I don’t mean…

Still Life In Shadows

Still Life In Shadows by Alice Wisler is a book with many layers. There is a thread of romance, but the real theme of the book is learning to forgive, learning to let go, and learning to trust yourself. The very unique thing about this book is that it is written from two very different points of view, and not those that you would expect. Gideon Miller escaped from the Amish community fifteen years ago. He has managed to carve out a life for himself as a mechanic and an…

Apparently he escaped from his creator, an evil vampire named Vincent. Vincent is now on a quest to find Nathaniel. When he finds him in a small California town, all hell breaks loose.

The Art of My Life

The Art of My Life is the second book by author Ann Lee Miller that I’ve read, and with it, she has officially been placed in my ‘favorite authors’ file. We met the main characters Aly and Cal in a previous book by Miller called Kicking Eternity, (which made my top five list for 2012). Aly is a self deprecating nymphomaniac on a path of destruction while Cal is an eccentric artist and surfer; the rogue son of a pastor. They have both grown and changed since book one, Cal through spending…

Brother Half Angel

a review of the book BROTHER HALF ANGEL by Martin Roth American missionaries are in China, working at a Bible College that fronts as an English school. Their presence is not agreeable to many in the town, including an ancient martial arts sect known as the ‘Flower Boxers’. The story actually begins with a massacre of some missionaries almost a century earlier, carried out by the same sect. The grandson of one of the martyrs is now working at the school, feeling it is his mission to carry on…

Kicking Eternity - a review

Kicking Eternity by Ann Lee Miller made my top five reads for 2012. Here is my review:

Raine has been hired to teach Bible at a summer camp, but is unprepared for her attraction to bad boy Cal, or seeing Drew again, a ‘boy’ from her past who is now all grown up. The promise of some interesting developments between the three is almost immediate and I was hooked after only a few pages. The characters are varied and well developed; real people with issues that deserve an audience. It is…
