From Now On: Atlanta Belles (A Magnolias and Moonshine Novella book 14) Raine English


I loved this sweet romance by Raine English! Whitney Adams has put everything she has into her business- Atlanta Belles, salon and spa. Cash Galloway put his career ahead of Whitney. When he gets the chance to come back, can he convince Whitney to give him a second chance?

Cash and Whitney were engaged seven years ago. When he decided to move to pursue his dreams, he asked her to go, but she had just started her business. She couldn’t just up and leave. But will her secret destroy the chance they have to rekindle a romance?

If you enjoy a sweet romance with engaging characters you will love From Now On.

I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book and am voluntarily reviewing it.

Delivered by Joy Ohagwu



Delivered is the sixth book in the The New Rulebook Series by Joy Ohagwu. You do not need to read these in order to understand what is going on. Doing so will give you more background on the characters and what they’ve gone through, but does not take away from the story.

Patricia Kelsey-McKnight is determined to save her town, even though the townspeople don’t like her and won’t believe her. Can Pete Zendel trust his conversion to Jesus is strong enough to keep him from the darkness he used to know? Delivered is action packed and full of suspense. This quote, “Grace gives you the ability to see Christians the way God does,” pulled me into the story. No matter our past, no matter our sin, God will forgive us. It’s hard enough without having to fight what other people think about us.

If you love mystery and suspense, you will love this story!

I received a free copy in the hope that I would mention/review it on my blog. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done.

Plain Target by Dana R Lynn


From being followed to locked in a freezer, Jess McGrath is on a mission to clear her brother’s name. But somebody doesn’t want the truth to get out. Did her brother kill himself? Or was he murdered?

Seth Travis humiliated her in high school, but now he’s the only one that can keep her safe. But now that he’s grown up, he realizes how much he likes her. Can they put their past behind them and start over?

If you love suspense you’ll love Plain Target. Who has targeted Jess? As the list of suspects get shorter, you won’t believe who has decided it’s best to get Jess out of the way. From the start this story is action packed until the last page.

Final Verdict by Jessica Patch


Can a sheriff and a public defender put their jobs behind them and fall in love? How would it work if he arrested them and she defended them?

Final Verdict is a must read inspirational suspense. Sheriff Beckett keeps his distance from Aurora Daniels as she defends people he thinks would be better off in jail. But as her life is threatened and he must protect her, he puts her safety above his own.

Beckett is out to prove even though he couldn’t keep someone close to him safe in the past, he will do all he can to keep Aurora safe. But will he learn he can rely on God to help him, that he doesn’t have to do it all on his own?

Who is out to kill Aurora? Time races as she and Beckett try to figure out who is after her. But can they keep their hearts from falling for each other?

My favorite quote from the story: “Christians aren’t immune to grief, pain, anger or feelings of revenge. Trust me. If we don’t let God deal with those emotions—if we entertain them—we can end up in a very dark place. At the very least, bitter and cynical.”

I loved the chemistry between these two characters. Final Verdict is a great suspenseful read!

Summer of Deception by Elva Cobb Martin



Rachel needs answers about what happened to her brother. She takes a job as a nanny for Luke’s daughter, where her brother was last seen, but nothing works out as it should.

Luke doesn’t believe her reason for being there. Is her stay at the lovely plantation a ploy to marry into the wealthy family? Why is she really here?

Rachel is determined to stay and do what she was hired to do, whether or not Luke believes her. And in the meantime, she’ll continue to search for answers. Is Luke part of the drug smuggling ring? Is this the ring that took her brother’s life?

I loved this story by Elva Cobb Martin. Luke’s daughter is a joy to get to know. But can Rachel find the answers she’s looking for and not lose her heart to Luke? Summer of Deception is an action filled inspirational romance. I loved Luke as the hero. I couldn’t stop reading. His issues with God and why he stopped praying felt very real. His walk back to God pulled me into the story. I pulled for Rachel and Luke all through the story, but things would keep happening that kept them apart. Loved this story and can’t wait to read more by this author.

Spring Raine by Delia Latham




Ever since I saw this book was coming, I wanted to read it. I was not disappointed. Delia Latham has a way with words that draws you into the story and the characters’ lives. Paradise Pines Lodge is a great place to be. I didn’t want to leave.

Raine is vacationing with Miss Angie in her upstairs apartment and has a run-in with Declan, a neighbor. Miss Angie senses things. How can she know what she knows? Declan is asked to watch over Raine without her knowing, but after showing off his town to her, can he keep his heart to himself? Can he convince her to stay after her vacation is up? Or will she return to her parents and the job that’s waiting for her?

Raine is shown in many ways that God is thinking about her. Do you see those signs in your own life? It’s the little things. A touch of a butterfly. A group of trees. The way sunlight glints through the clouds. Spring Raine fills you with hope and God’s love.

But what happens when she finds her calling in Paradise Pines? Will she stay and disappoint her parents? Or leave her calling behind? How can we know what God wants us to do? Spring Raine-God will lead the way.

Architecture of Survival: Holocaust Diaries by Israel Stein


I am fascinated by accounts of the Holocaust and was looking forward to reading Architecture of Survival. Israel Stein gives his first person account of what he went through during the Holocaust as a child in one section. His parents Paula Stein and Meir Stein wrote in diaries during their time and those have been translated and provided in other sections. The pictures and other information included in the memoir make this account a definite must read of the Holocaust.

I like the cover depicting Israel’s family and the countryside. The formatting is perfect. There were no issues in reading this on a Kindle. Grammar, editing issues: the story was adequately edited. There were no glaring typos or unclear sentences. Translation of the language sometimes threw off the flow of words, but not to the point where you couldn’t understand it. His mother spoke Polish and his dad German.

From the memoir, while in Russia, family and neighbors would go missing and never come back. Israel and his family were then taken away to the Lukishki prison. They escaped being sent further on because his mother was an architect. The rest of the memoir is Israel, his mother’s, and then his father’s recollections of that time period.

The author brings to life the ongoing struggles to stay alive and not be caught. I felt like I was there, hiding from the police, afraid for my life. Escaping to Bialystok, Israel and his family experienced a paradise of sorts, until he was intentionally separated from his family and hiding in a small space of a Polish family. Architecture of Survival is Israel Stein’s recollection of the holocaust and I recommend this memoir to all who are interested in this time period of history. At times graphic, at times very sad, at times incomprehensible, this memoir will touch your heart.
