The Matchmaker's Match by Kimberly Rose Johnson



Meghan Black works at a vet clinic. She acts on a dare to find Ben Young, a veterinarian at the clinic, his soul mate. He loves animals, teaches Sunday School, and is good looking. How hard can it be to find him a match? And once she does, her side business of matchmaking will take off.

Ben has made it 35 years without finding his one true love and he doesn’t need any help now. Even though Meghan is determined and outspoken, he’ll make sure she doesn’t find that special someone for him.

Once Meghan starts making a list, will she find that just maybe, she might be the one? No, she loves working with animals. She doesn’t need a man in her life.

The Matchmaker’s Match is humorous as Meghan tries to find a date for Ben. No one is right. As Meghan learns more about Ben in her search for the perfect match, will she discover her love for God and Ben?

If you love inspirational romances, you will love this story. I enjoyed the story being set in a vet clinic and the dialogue regarding Christianity verses religion. A light-hearted story that displays the difference.

Crazy for You by Ginny Baird


Mary Ellen, Wes, and a rooster. She’s the new teacher. He’s the principal. Can a rooster be a matchmaker?

Crazy for You is a great story. Wes gave up on love when his wife died. Mary Ellen isn’t looking for love, she even moved to get away. But when her pet rooster keeps getting out, and Wes decides to build her a chicken coop, can they deny the attraction?

Wes’ daughter Emma is so sweet and the shenanigans of the rooster are hilarious. I wanted to live next door to them. If you enjoy a sweet romance you will love this one!

Gift of the Magpie by Zoe McCarthy


I loved this story by Zoe McCarthy! The characters’ dialogue zipped back and forth. It was fun and flirty with a message of faith and love. Cam has moved back to town and doesn’t recognize Amanda from high school. But she recognizes him. Right down to how her heart felt when he left.

Can they get past what happened in high school and find love now? From making a snowman, to building an igloo, to spending Christmas together, Gift of the Magpie is a must read. The characters are engaging, and the theme of faith and trust drew me into the story. Do we trust God to handle the hard situations? Can we offer forgiveness as Jesus did?

Gift of the Magpie - made me stop and think about my trust and faith in God, and how I need to forgive others as Jesus forgave me. As Amanda learned to let things go from her past to move forward in her present, it showed me ways I could do the same.

Hello Again by Brenda Novak (Dr. Evelyn Talbot Novels)


If you love a great psychological suspense, you'll love Brenda Novak's Hello Again. From the start, you won't be able to put this book down. Dr. Evelyn Talbot is still being targeted by Jasper Moore, her attacker. She started Hanover House to study inmate psychopaths and their "consciencelessness". She is getting to know Dr. Lyman Bishop, an inmate convicted of killing. He states he's innocent. When Evelyn discovers his mentally handicapped sister that he's been taking care of, she begins to wonder if he is innocent. Will this put her safety in jeopardy?

Jasper killed three of her best friends from high school, and kidnapped and tortured her before, but she got away. He is after her with a vengeance again. Can Eveylyn's boyfriend Amarok, a police officer, discover where he is and protect her when he comes calling? Will Jasper succeed this time?

The suspense of Evelyn discovering Jasper's been killing again, Jasper getting close to harm Evelyn again, discovering if Dr. Lyman Bishop is innocent or not, and Evelyn staying alive one step in front of Jasper, makes for a page turning suspense. Hello Again will keep you up till the wee hours of the morning to finish this story.

Hello Again refers to the torture the women kidnapped endure, but doesn't go into too much detail. There is some language. The story is told in past tense, with developed characters, and an engaging story line. The twists and turns and unexpected ending makes for a great read.

Hello Again is part of the Dr. Evelyn Talbot novel series. You don't have to read these in order to know what is going on, but the heroine, Evelyn Talbot has a history with an attacker and this story is a continuation. You can read Her Darkest Nightmare and Hanover House to get the backstory, but it is not needed to enjoy this story.

Dangerous Testimony by Dana Mentink Pacific Coast Private Eyes series


This is the first book I've read by Dana Mentink, but it won't be my last. If you love suspense and romance, you'll love this inspirational story. Candace is set to testify against a gang member, until her family is targeted. Marco must keep her alive until she testifies, but can he protect his heart?

This story is the last of the Pacific Coast Private Eyes series, but they are each a standalone story. You'll want to in order to follow the development of Candace and Marco's relationship. Marco's determination to keep Candace and her daughter safe through all the attacks from the gang kept me turning the pages.

Dangerous Testimony is a great afternoon read full of suspense, danger, and romance.

Plain Retribution by Dana R Lynn



Loved this Amish suspense by Dana R Lynn! What do you do when someone has targeted you and you're deaf? The only person you can rely on is police officer Miles Olsen to keep you safe, who is the only person in town you can communicate with. But can he protect the woman he's falling for, or will his past mistakes cause him to slip up and get her hurt? Everything he knows and loves is on the line until he can secure Rebecca's safety. When Rebecca is kidnapped again, will she survive long enough for Miles to save her?

I enjoyed this story's look at deafness and communication. Miles grew up signing and speaking in ASL (American Sign Language). Rebecca is working toward a Certified Deaf Interpreter certificate. Dana's depiction of Rebecca's deafness increased my awareness of some of the things she encountered in her daily life.

Healing Love by Jennifer Slattery



Healing Love, Jennifer Slattery's best book yet! Healing. Yes, they all need healing, and love makes it possible.

Ubaldo lives in El Salvador. He is a teacher and translator living generational poverty. When he's asked to translate for Brooke's mission group, he prays they are impacted by what's around them. He is protective of his people and doesn't want them hurt.

Brooke is a rising news anchor. Will she be blinded by the advancement of her career, or the eyes of the orphans she meets on a mission trip to El Salvador? How does she know she's hearing God in her situation?

Ubaldo translates for the missionary team. Will they be impacted by the poverty around them, or only whisper empty promises from their place of contentment? Brooke wants this trip over with so she can get back to her aspirations of being an on-camera news anchor. But will this trip be just the break she needs?

The orphans, especially Fatima and her sister, Ubaldo, and Brooke, stole my heart. I felt like I was in El Salvador on this mission trip. Sometimes there are no answers to why God allows things to happen, but resting in His love brings hope and healing.

Rapunzel's Lighthouse by Christina Lorenzen


A contemporary retelling of Rapunzel. I loved this story of a girl not sure what her future holds and a guy who is searching for his present.

Georgie grew up taking care of Salt Cliff's lighthouse, which has now fallen into disrepair. She is allowed to stay in the adjacent cottage until it's decided what will become of it. Where will she go then?

Colby is injured which causes him to retire from the Navy before he planned. He wants to open a sailing school, and the lighthouse would be the perfect location. Will he bid on the lighthouse and force Georgie to leave the only home she's known?

Georgie opens her heart to Colby, until she reads a letter in his possession. He plans to attend the auction of her lighthouse. She doesn't want to move, but she doesn't have the funds to purchase it. How could he buy it out from under her?

Rapunzel's Lighthouse is a fun read. With her long hair, and Colby's determination, I couldn't put this book down until I'd read to the end to see what would become of Rapunzel's lighthouse.
