The Amish Blacksmith Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner




What's the book about:

New from bestselling authors Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner, The Amish Blacksmith (Book 2 in The Men of Lancaster County series) explores the men of an Amish community in Lancaster County, how their Amish beliefs play out in their unique roles, and the women who change their lives.

Apprenticed blacksmith Jake Miller is skeptical of Priscilla Kinsinger’s innate ability to soothe troubled horses, especially when he has own ideas on how to calm them. Six years earlier, Priscilla’s mother died in an awful accident at home, and Priscilla’s grief over losing her mother was so intense that she was sent to live with relatives in Indiana. She has just returned to Lancaster County.



Not that her homecoming matters to Jake, who is interested in courting lighthearted Amanda Shetler. But Jake’s boss is Priscilla’s uncle, and when the man asks Jake to help his niece reconnect with community life, he has no choice but to do just that. Surprisingly, he finds himself slowly drawn to the beautiful but emotionally wounded Priscilla.

Jake then determines to prove to her that it’s not her fault her mother died, but what he discovers will challenge everything they both believe about the depth of love and the breadth of forgiveness.
 
My Thoughts on the book:
 I have to say I really like this book, The interaction with each and everyone of the characters is really amazing. I am not one who likes so much detail that it takes away from the storyline its self. At first I felt that this book was heading that way, there is a lot of details but the more I read on I felt like everyone of those details make since in the end. The book is intense at times but it just make you keep wanting to read on to see what is going to happen. I really had a hard time putting the book down it was a really fun storyline. Also it teaches you a little bit about the Amish, I just love the simple life of the Amish and to get loss into the simpleness of there lives even if its just fiction its fun. This book is worth the read as well as worth the buy, from the beginning of the book to the end of the book it grabs you and holds you there. If you are looking for a fun book the you will not want to put down this would be the book. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

Hideaway Cove Anna Sullivan




What's the book about:

Jessi Randal walked away from her last relationship with a baby and a broken heart. Now, years later, the last thing this single mom wants is to give Windfall Island-and all its nosy residents-anything more to gossip about. But the moment she lays eyes on the tall, sexy stranger with the slow Southern drawl, she knows she's in delicious trouble . . .

Holden Abbot is on the island to find the missing heir to the Stanhope family fortune. It's his job to charm as many secrets out of the town as possible. And if he can charm Jessi into his bed, even better. When all evidence points to her as the heir, a dangerous enemy sets his sights on Jessi and her son. Now Holden will have to risk everything to protect the family he's come to love.  
 

My Thoughts on the book:
So first off let me say this you need to read the first book in the series, other wise this book can be a bit confusing in the beginning. I did not read the first book so I can not tell you if its any good. But what I can say is the first half of this book seemed like it was all about a simple love story then in the middle somewhere I realized this book had some mystery to it. The book is ok it drags in some parts but over all the storyline and the characters seem well written. I loved the mystery part of the book it keeps you on the edge of your seat you really can't put the book down and it leaves you wanting so much more. I love how Jessi is true to herself but still has to struggle with what she thinks life should be, she surrounds herself with loving caring people and she seems to have a passion for everyone and everything including her son. I love Maggie, she is just a cannon about to explode (in a good way) theres a part of me that wants to go back and read her story. Over all I would give this book a B, Its hard to say if I would have liked the book better if I had read the first book but I can say that it would have helped make more since of the first part of the book. If you are looking for a mystery love story and you want a book to keep you guessing this would be a good book to read because it does keep you wondering whats going to happen all the way till the end of the book.

Only with you Lauren Layne




Whats the book about:

But when a Las Vegas bachelorette party goes awry and an uptight businessman mistakes Sophie for a prostitute . . . well, Sophie wonders if it's time to reevaluate her priorities. Swearing off her thigh-high boots for good, Sophie slinks back home with damaged pride-and a jackpot of a hangover.

Wealthy and gorgeous, Gray is a man used to getting what he wants. And it doesn't take long to figure out that smart, sassy, sexy Sophie is everything he's been looking for. As their late nights at the office turn into hot morning-afters, they realize their Vegas misunderstanding may lead to the real thing . . .
 
My Thoughts on the book:
 This book was amazing for sure the chemistry between the characters was amazing. From the very beginning the book draws you in and hooks you. There are a lot of hot and steamy parts and you won't be disappointed. The book deals with self worth a lot and the way the author does the storyline is completely well written. I love Sophie's bubbly personality, it keeps you laughing and you just want to get to know her and be friends with her. I love how even though Gray is stand offish he's still human. I love the start of Will and Brynn's story I can not wait to read it. Will is seriously the boy next store and you so want to know that he is going to come out ahead!!! If you are looking for a hot steamy love story that has twist and keeps you reading this is your book a quick read but a fun read.

My Thoughts on the book:
 I really like that this book is three books in one it picks up where the other leaves off and you don't have to worrying about buy another book to finish the story. I love how the author took 3 very strong women and 3 equally strong men and told there stories, but allowed there weakness to show as well. The stories are short but packed with a great story line. I love how each story had its own struggles and yet each story was well enough written you didn't want to put the book down you wanted to see what was going to happen. I would have to say this book is worth the buy 3 great stories for the price of one and they are short reads.

My Thoughts on the book:
 This is full of hot steaminess with a little bit of story. Over all there are 6 stories the first story was not much of one the 2nd, 3rd, 5th and 6th stories were really good the story line was amazing kept you on the edge of you seat. It was some times fairly on the intense side but in a good way. Each story seems link it doesn't take but a second to see the link. Now in the 4th  story it was like maybe 2 pages and I am so lost on how that was link to the other books I have gone back and to read it over and still feel like I am missing the link. I think the story it self should have been longer or not included. It kind of just ends very abrupt. If you are looking for a book full of action this is that book, and you wont be sorry.

My thoughts on the book:
I rarely give a book 5 stars unless a book just is that good. This book has 4 books with in it and from the very first book its amazing and just gets better you are sitting on the edge of your seat wanting to know whats going to happen in each story. The first book and the last book are both very sweet love stories and are well written. The 2 books in the middle are on the edge of your seat kind of books full of action and a little bit of love thrown in. I think the only thing I can say in a negative way is I wish the books were longer. I thought with each book being small they make lack a poor storyline or they leave you hanging. But no that did not happen with any of them, each story had a way of drawing you in a keeping you there from the start to the end. I have only read one author the other 3 are new to me and I can not wait to read more by them. This book is definitely worth buying and you can not go wrong with it. Don't let the title mess with you its not just another Love story.
