Reunion Pass Emily March




What's the book about:

Six years ago, Chase Timberlake bought an engagement ring for his high school sweetheart Lori Reese. Then...life happened. Chase’s adventure photography career took off, Lori’s dream of getting into veterinary school came true, and their happily ever after never came to pass.
When Chase’s jet-setting life takes a tragic turn, he returns to Eternity Springs a damaged man. Who better to help mend his spirit than the woman who has dedicated her life to healing broken wings? Long summer days spent together rekindles the love that never died and Chase dares to dream of a future he’d thought lost.But Lori can’t help but wonder whether this high-flying man really wants a small-town girl with roots sunk deep into the Colorado Rockies. Can she and Chase turn back the hands of time and pick up where they left off—and give forever a chance?

My thoughts on the book:
Six years ago Chase and Lori let life get away from them and separate what was a good thing. Now Lori has finished school and started her on vet clinic when Chase comes to town with his now fiancé and she now knows all the hope of getting back together is gone. When tragedy strikes and bring Chase home he pushes everyone away that matters and knows he needs to get out of this town before he drags more people down with him. He just can't seem to let go of the small town where he feels like home. With Lori's roots dug deep and Chase only on the surface will Lori be able to help Chase or will it all be to late.
          I found this book addictive and hard to put down, had to keep turning pages just to find out what happens. Such a sweet love story that will keep you on the edge of your seat and leaving wanting more. It reminds you to always live life to the fullest cause you never know what tomorrow holds. There is nothing about this book I did not like such a sweet and powerful book totally enjoyable. If you are looking to be sucked into a small town with some wonderful funny characters that feel like you are going home then this is the book for you and you won't regret it.

Joshua's Mission Vannetta Chapman



What's the book about:
Joshua’s Mission is a new standalone novel in the Plain and Simple Miracles collection from popular author Vannetta Chapman. These stories of love and family and Amish community in Oklahoma tell of the miracles that can happen when lives are lived in service to God and to one another.
Joshua Kline travels from his farm in Oklahoma to offer aid to an Englisch town on the gulf coast of Texas after a category 4 hurricane has ravaged the area. He brings his brother with him, who needs a change of environment. The last thing he wants for Alton is another brush with the law. He is pleasantly surprised when he hears that Becca Troyer, the bishop’s granddaughter, plans on joining their team.
What will Joshua find when he arrives in Texas? A lack of electricity, certainly, which poses little problem for the Amish volunteers as they help restore order from destruction. But a budding romance? A call from God? And a possible healing of his relationship with Alton?
Joshua’s Mission is a story of love, forgiveness, and the grace of God that carries us through even the worst situations.

My thoughts on the book:
Charlie was married and loved being part of the his community and helping every where that was needed. He had a special place in his heart for widows and Alice and her grandkids. When Hurricane Orion is headed for there small island he has some decisions to make and he knows he needs to make them fast, but will it be to late? Joshua is sick of bailing his brother Alton out of all kinds of trouble but he knows that he needs to to keep his brother on the straight and narrow and help his parents out. When the bishop sends him and and his brother on a mission will he be able to help those in need and help his brother. Becca is a rarity in the amish community being an only child but she know that its what God planned now at the ripe old age of 20 if she can just find a husband she feel like life would be that much better, when her granddad suggest she go on a mission and maybe find her purpose but will she be able to protect her heart in the process.       

The first half of this book is two separate stories going one you know based on the description they will merge but to me it seem to take a long time getting there. Once the book was merged the story flowed well and it draws you in leaving you wanting more. The book its self I would give a 3.5 stars, once the story merged into one story, I had a hard time putting the book down it was enjoyable with  some serious parts as well as some fun parts. It was just getting to that point I had a hard time getting into the story and the first part of the book, not much of a page turner.

Plain Choice Sarah Price



What's the book about:
Amanda’s husband, Cuban pop star Alejandro, believed he was doing right by his wife when he left her on her parents’ farm in the familiar shelter of Lancaster’s Amish community. Amanda, however, has other ideas. Unwilling to sit idly by and hide from the paparazzi, she follows her husband to Europe for the start of his world tour to find out if their marriage can be saved once and for all.
When the two reunite, it’s plain to see that their love is stronger than their differences. But as they travel together, Amanda is surprised to discover that her own fame is beginning to match her husband’s. Now she must struggle to bridge her Amish upbringing and a new, unasked-for role in the public eye. As other unexpected tensions challenge their bond, can Amanda and Alejandro keep their promises and make space for her faith, his fame, and a growing love?

My thoughts on the book:
Alejandro leaves Amanda and he is to stubborn to make it right because he thinks he's doing the right thing by her. So off on the world tour he goes and he doesn't look back or question his choice till he's there and starts to wonder what like would be with out her and he wonders if the choices he's making are the right ones. Amanda is back home on the farm with Alejandro's daughter and knows it time to fix things with her husband she's just waiting for him to make the first move, well until someone brings to her attention that may she needs to do it. So off to she goes and hopes its not to late and Alejandro will have her again. But will they be able to work things out even with the secrets that come out.
    I was not a fan of book 4 at all but this book made up for it. This book was the perfect follow up, the book draws you in and keeps you till the end. The story sums up Alejandro and Amanda and there lives and sweet family, they are once again faced with trials that could make or break some couples. The story line this time made them seem more real and less like untouchable. I really don't think there was one thing about the book I did not like. You really will not be disappoint with this wonderful story.

It's Always Been You Jessica Scott




What's the book about:

She plays by the rules . . . 

Captain Ben Teague is many things: a tough soldier, a loyal friend, and a bona fide smart-ass. He doesn't have much tolerance for BS, which is why he's mad as hell when a trusted colleague and mentor is brought up on charges that can't possibly be true. He's even more frustrated with by-the-book lawyer Major Olivia Hale. But there's something simmering beneath her icy reserve--and Ben just can't resist turning up the heat . . .

. . . and he's determined to break them

The only thing riskier than mixing business with pleasure is enjoying it . . . and Olivia can't resist locking horns--and lips--with Ben. He's got more compassion in his little finger than any commander she's ever met, a fact that makes him a better leader than he realizes. But when the case that brought them together awakens demons from Olivia's past, she will have to choose between following orders--or her heart . . .

My thoughts on the book:

Ben is so not happy about the changes taking place he is not happy about the hirer ups not knowing the first thing about what its like to go to battlefield and come back broken and then watch your buddies go through hell. He has a plan and he plans to stick to it and he doesn't care who gets in his way he plans to help everyone he can and still be an active member of the ARMY. Olivia Hall is ready to face the new challenges before her and she will stop at nothing to make sure there are not special treatments or cover ups on her watch, she has seen what that can do and she is not about to sit by and let it happen again. She is willing and ready to take on the first case and persons who stop her from protecting everyone involved. She just is not sure she's ready to bump heads with someone as stubborn as Ben is she truly ready to go head to head with him and not back down.
This is a really fun book. It shows the not so pretty stuff that goes on in the military and the things people don't always see. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and has you turning every page just to find out whats going on. There is a ton of chemistry in this book between not just the main characters but the people involved. I found myself laughing and crying it truly is a heart breaking story at some points. You really can not go wrong with this book. I have to say this is my favorite book out of this series so far.

Sense and Sensibility Sarah Price



What's the book about:
Henry Detweiler dies unexpectedly, leaving his second wife and three daughters, Eleanor, Mary Ann, and Maggie, in the care of John, his oldest son from a previous marriage. John and his wife, Fanny, inherit the farm and, despite a deathbed promise to take care of their stepmother and half-sisters, John and Fanny make it obvious that Mrs. Detweiler and her daughters are not welcomed at the farm. When Edwin Fischer, Fanny’s older brother, takes notice of Eleanor and begins to court her, much to the disapproval of his sister, Fanny makes life even more difficult for the Detweiler women. 

In their new home, Eleanor wonders if Edwin will come calling while Mary Ann catches the attention of Christian Bechtler, an older bachelor in the church district, and John Willis, a younger man set to inherit a nearby farm. While Eleanor quietly pines for Edwin, Mary Ann does not hide her infatuation with John Willis. When the marriage proposal from John Willis does not materialize, Mary Ann is left grief-stricken and humiliated as the Amish community begins to gossip about their relationship. In the meantime, a broken-hearted Eleanor learns that Edwin is engaged to another woman.

Will admitting her affections for him result in the marriage proposal Eleanor has always desired?

My thoughts on the book:

Detweiler women were forced from there home after the unexpected loss of their father and husband. When they get settled Eleanor wonders if she will be able to remain close to Edwin or if the relationship and moving has taken its toll and its time for her to move on. Mary Ann meets a man who she believes is the love of her life but her family quickly see he may just be hiding something that could destroy Mary Ann all the while Christian sits back and knows he will have to bide his time so that he can show her what everyone else sees. But will it all be to late for the girls or will they both find love waiting on the other side of the loss?
I just loved this book. Usually I like to have the story told from both peoples point of view but Sarah did and amazing job nailing it with this book. I loved each of the characters from the nasty sister in law to the busy body neighbor and the sassy little sister who is just to happy to be grown up. The loss in the book just get you but you see Gods working hand in all of it. There was not one thing I did not like about this book. I found it extremely hard to put down the book is extremely captivating and draws you in to a point where you just need to know what happens. Such a page turner. You really can not go wrong with this book so worth the buy.
