Audiobook Review: Shotgun Angels by Jay DeMarcus with Timothy D. Willard

I have loved Rascal Flatts from the moment I heard their first song, “Prayin’ For Daylight,” back in 2000. Nineteen years later, I’ve seen the group in concert 10+ times and love them still. The first time I heard about this book, I knew I had to read it. I had no idea I would walk away as if I had just been to church. That I would walk away full of hope. This was not what I expected but in the very best way. Continue reading “Audiobook Review: Shotgun Angels by Jay DeMarcus with Timothy D. Willard”

Book Review: The Little Tea Shop on Main by Jodi Thomas

This book opened with promise, but that promise didn’t hold throughout the book. Continue reading “Book Review: The Little Tea Shop on Main by Jodi Thomas”

Book Review: Emily, Gone by Bette Lee Crosby

Does every mother hold a deep fear in her heart that one day her child could be kidnapped? I can’t imagine the heartache that parents of missing children must endure. But this story paints just such a picture, in such vivid detail, that I could very easily put myself in their place. Continue reading “Book Review: Emily, Gone by Bette Lee Crosby”

Book Review: The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth

This book isn’t non-stop action, but it’s definitely another read that pulled at me from beginning to end. I used similar words to describe a book in a review last week. It fit this book as well, so I decided to use them again 🙂 Continue reading “Book Review: The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth”

Book Review: Keeping Lucy by T. Greenwood

Keeping Lucy is not non-stop action and excitement. What it is, is gripping. Continue reading “Book Review: Keeping Lucy by T. Greenwood”

Book Review: Saving Meghan by D.J. Palmer

This one kept me guessing all the way through! Now THAT is the sign of an excellent mystery! Continue reading “Book Review: Saving Meghan by D.J. Palmer”

Book Review: Two Weeks by Karen Kingsbury

Don’t let the Baxter name keep you from reading the latest from Karen Kingsbury. Two Weeks is Elise Walker’s story. While Cole Blake, son of Landon and Ashley Baxter Blake, plays a pretty big role, this book is not a focus on the Baxter family and can be read as a stand-alone. If you haven’t read the 25+ Baxter books prior to this one, starting here will not be a problem. Continue reading “Book Review: Two Weeks by Karen Kingsbury”

Book Review: Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly

An interesting plot that should have been packed with emotion, but emotion did not quite fill the suitcase. Continue reading “Book Review: Little Lovely Things by Maureen Joyce Connolly”

Book Review: The Escape Room by Megan Goldin

An exciting beginning but what followed didn’t quite take the story over the mountaintop. It was lacking something for this reader that would have put it over the top. Continue reading “Book Review: The Escape Room by Megan Goldin”
