The Amish Cooking Class - The Seekers Wanda E. Brunstetter


Description:
Will Heidi's cooking lessons turn into life lessons for five unlikely students?

Heidi Troyer cooks up the idea of teaching classes in the art of Amish cuisine in her Holmes County, Ohio, home. But is it a recipe for drama when five very different men and women answer the advertisement?

Join a class of unlikely Ohioans who take cooking lessons at Lyle and Heidi Troyer’s Amish farm. A woman engaged to marry, an expectant mother estranged from her family, a widowed mom seeking to simplify, a Vietnam vet who camps on the Troyer’s farm, and an Amish widower make up the mismatched lot of students.

Class members share details of their disappointing lives, work to solve a mystery, and stir some romance into the pot. Soon Heidi’s cooking lessons turn into life lessons as they each share their challenges. . .and their souls are healed one meal at a time. Is this what God had in mind when Heidi got the idea for cooking classes?


My thoughts on the book:

I really enjoyed this book, I really enjoyed that it was not really a romance book but had romance in it, almost gave a twist to love story. I loved how the author took a group of misfits in one way or another and brought them together of a cook class. I loved how she shared each person story even though it seems that the main character was Heidi, it felt like they all could be the main character and they brought a lot to the story. I really enjoyed the storyline it was easy to follow with so many fun characters. The book seemed to have some twist and surprises to it as well which was a fun element to the story. The end of the story was a total surprise and I can't wait to read more about these fun characters I really hope there is more to come. If you are looking for a good clean fun amish book or for that matter a good book grab this one it will so be worth it.

Restoring Love Jennifer Slattery


Description:


Mitch, a contractor and house-flipper, is restoring a beautiful old house in an idyllic Midwestern neighborhood. Angela, a woman filled with regrets and recently transplanted to his area, is anything but idyllic. She's almost his worst nightmare, and she s also working on restoring something herself. As he struggles to keep his business afloat and she works to overcome mistakes of her past, these two unlikely friends soon discover they have something unexpected in common, a young mom who is fighting to give her children a better life after her husband's incarceration. While both Mitch and Angela are drawn to help this young mother survive, they also find themselves drawn to each other. Will a lifetime of regrets hold them back or unite them and bring redemption along with true love?
Restoring Love, part of New Hope Publishers' line of contemporary missional fiction, demonstrates how God can turn our greatest tragedies and failures into beautiful acts of love and grace that can impact the lives of others. Readers will connect with the realistic characters and find they can relate to the complex situations that makes Jennifer Slattery's book so appealing. Readers will be inspired to see how God wants to use us to restore people's perception of love in action.

My thoughts on the book:

This story is not your typical love story, this story is a story of love for neighbors who seem down and out, for kid who just don't seem to fit, for a child who's choices are destroying those around him and himself, for the broken women who seemed to have screw up her life and she it set to fix it, and for the man who has a big heart but need to work on a few things as well. I truly enjoyed this book, I really loved how with the topics that were dealt with in this book this biggest thing was grace and forgiveness. I really enjoyed how the author did a good job and talking through some tough things with the characters. I think the only thing I really hoped was that there was one relationship i hoped would go different but who know maybe the author is writing more. There is a romance in this story to, please don't get me wrong, and it seemed to flow and work with the story line very authentic. Seriously you can not go wrong with this book the perfect clean read that I had a hard time putting down. I can't wait to read more from Jennifer. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

Maybe It's You Candace Calvert



Description:
ER nurse Sloane Ferrell escaped her risky past—new name, zip code, job, and a fresh start. She’s finally safe, if she avoids a paper trail and doesn’t let people get too close. Like the hospital’s too-smooth marketing man with his relentless campaign to plaster one “lucky” employee’s face on freeway billboards.

Micah Prescott’s goal is to improve the Hope hospital image, but his role as a volunteer crisis responder is closer to his heart. The selfless work helps fill a void in his life left by family tragedy. So does a tentative new relationship with the compassionate, beautiful, and elusive Sloane Ferrell.

Then a string of brutal crimes makes headlines, summons responders . . . and exposes disturbing details of Sloane’s past.

Can hope spring from crisis?



My thoughts on the book:

Sloane has a past she seems to always be on the run from. She is now in LA and hopefully and the right path, however will the past catch up with her again and send her on the run, or will she finally be able to hide in plain sight? Micah has the goal of rebranding the hospital and finding the face of hope. When the past seems to keep coming up and his friend starts to uncover information on the one person he seems to have in mind to be the face of the hospital. Will he be able to work together and convince Sloane she is the face or will the past be just to much to handle?

Where do I even begin, this book was amazing. At first I wasn't sure where it was going but quickly the storyline grabs you and draws you in and you find yourself sucked in and needing to know what happens next. The suspense in the book truly add to the twist in turns in the book. There are some really tough subjects dealt with in the book that just adds to another element to the story. I love how the author adds the element of grace and forgiveness in the book not just with God but with each other. I just loved the end I really wasn't sure what was going to happen but the author kept you guessing to the end. I also loved how everything was followed up at the end with an epilogue if tied the book up perfectly. You seriously can not go wrong with this series such a fun group of books.

Rescue Me Susan May Warren, Montana Rescue #2



Description:
When Deputy Sam Brooks commits to something, nothing can sway him--not just on the job as liaison between the Mercy Falls sheriff's department and PEAK Rescue, but in his private life. He's the one who stuck around to take care of his mother after his father's accidental death. And he's the one--perhaps the only one--who believes Sierra Rose is the perfect girl for him. Safe, practical, and organized, she's nothing like her hippie, impulsive, bleeding heart sister, Willow.

Willow, however, has been in love with Sam Brooks for as long as she can remember. But she wants her sister to have a happy ending. Besides, Willow has other things to focus on--namely, nabbing the job as youth pastor for her small-town church. Best thing for her to do is to purge Sam from her heart.

Neither can predict the events that will bring them together in a fight for their lives in the forbidding wilderness of Glacier National Park. Stranded, injured, and with the winter weather closing in, Sam and Willow will have to work together to save a crew of terrified teenagers. As they fight to survive, they might just discover a new hope for love.

My thoughts on the book:

Sam is living his life to be simple, predictable and organized and he found someone who can give him that life Sierra. It just seems he need to try and convince her of that. When things start going array in the park he starts to question everything and he continues to be angry with his brother. Can he let go of that anger and heal that relationship or is it to far gone? Willow is a free spirit and she is working hard to prove herself to the church so that she can take over as the new youth leader. But it seems she has more to prove then just to them she has a lot to prove to herself and those around her. When things start to fall apart around her she turns to God, but then she also starts to question a few thing in her life. Will she be able to find healing and help those around her before it to late? Pete is a wild child always looking for the next thrill, never willing to slow down. Jess is hiding a secret and she knows if she tell Pete that might be the end of them before she even had a chance to tell him how she felt for him.
Any good book will leave you wanting more and thats my favorite kind of read. This book did that and did not disappoint. I loved how this group of friends seek to help others but also are faced with the own trials along the way they need to face. I will say just like any series book this one does end in a small cliffhanger of two of the characters, but it was expected. I really enjoyed this book a lot, the storyline grabs you and I had truly a hard time putting it down I just need to know what was going to happen next. This book was and talked a lot about forgiveness and healing. I love that it was not just about a group of friends out to help others but had a moral to the story. If you are looking for a good book, with a love story attached and so suspense in it then seriously grab this book and the others in the series you really can't go wrong and you wont be disappointed.

Still Life Dani Pettrey, Chesapeake Valor #2


Description:
Romantic Suspense's Rising Star Continues to Win Fans
Blacklisted in the photography business over a controversial shot, Avery Tate answered an ad for a crime scene photographer. She expected to be laughed at, but crime scene analyst Parker Mitchell hired her outright--and changed her life. But six months ago, when her feelings for Parker became too strong, she left his employ to sort out her heart. 

Now, for the first time, Avery is facing the world that rejected her to attend the gallery opening of a photography exhibit and support her best friend, who modeled for the show. But the only image of her friend is a chilling photo of her posing as if dead--and the photographer insists he didn't take the shot. Worse, her friend can't be found. She immediately calls Parker for help. As Avery, Parker, and his friends in law enforcement dig into the mystery, they find themselves face-to-face with a relentless and deadly threat.


My thoughts on the book:

Avery has moved on from working for Parker, she knew she could not stay knowing she could never ever be part of Parker's life without being with him. When her best friend goes missing and it seems no one will listen she reaches out to Parker she knows he will help, or at least she hopes he will. 
Parker know one thing is for certain he has to get Avery back in his life, but he wonders if he is being fair to Jenna's honor. Can he find love again? When she reaches out to help find her friend he knows he needs his friends help to find whats going on. Will they be able to get to the bottom to all of this or will more end up missing or dead?
My favorite crime fighting team is BACK!!!! This story is very different from the first book in the first book you have one murder and a few possible killers and a reason why, it this book you have two cases that the team is working together to figure out. One of the stories is a little dark and a little twisted (this being the main story). The second one seems a little cut in dry but it also seems like they are missing something in both cases. Seriously could not get enough of this book, it was on the edge of your seat and I needed to know what happened. I also felt at one point I thought I knew what was going to happen and nope the author through a wrench into it and oh wow. The storyline was so amazingly written and so remarkable I can not wait to read more. You really can not go wrong with series. If you have never read anything by Dani Pettrey she is easily compared to Dee Henderson or Terri Blackstock.

Cold Shot Dani Pettrey, Chesapeake Valor Series Book #1


Description:

In college, Griffin McCray and his three best friends had their lives planned out. Griffin and Luke Gallagher would join the Baltimore PD. Declan Gray would head to the FBI and Parker Mitchell would go on to graduate school as a crime scene analyst. But then Luke vanished before graduation and their world--and friendships--crumbled.

Now Griffin is a park ranger at Gettysburg, having left life as a SWAT-team sniper when a case went bad. The job is mostly quiet--until the day he captures two relic hunters uncovering skeletal remains near Little Round Top. Griffin just wants the case to go away, but charming forensic anthropologist Finley Scott determines that the body is modern--a young social justice lawyer missing since spring--and all evidence points to the work of an expert sniper. When FBI agent Declan Gray takes over the case, past and present collide. Griffin soon realizes he'll need to confront some of the darkest days of his life if he--and those he cares about--are going to escape a downward spiral of murder that crosses continents.


My thoughts on the book:

Griffin has love and he has lost, he lost someone very close to him and his best friend went missing. Griffin left his job as a SWAT sniper agent and he is ready to put that life behind him. As working as a ranger he stumbles upon two guys and a dead boy on what should have been a battle field in the civil   war. What he discover puts him and his friends in what appears grave danger. They seek to find out whats happening and he needs to do one thing protect Finley and keep his heart in tact and his mind on the game it seems these guys are playing. Finley is a Forensic Anthropologist and is called out when a dead body is found and it brings back a situation that seems to hit to close to home for her and she knows she need to fight the demons of the past and get to the bottom of this murder. But when things start happening it appears that someone has it out to stop them at no cost. Will Finley, Griffin and his friends be able to find the killers and bring them to justice or will one of them end up dead?

Oh My gosh what can I say about this book, from the first page it had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed this book just when you think you have the story figured out the author throws in  a twist to the story. The author does an amazing job at keeping you hooked on the story till the very end. I can't wait to read more from these friends. The twist and turns in the story truly will keep wanting more and keeps you guessing till the very end. This book is listed as a romance suspense, while there is a ton of suspense in the book there is not a whole lot of romance but the way its played out is very natural and doesn't seemed forced at all, and its the perfect amount. You really can not go wrong with this book its a good clean read with a suspense add to the mix.

Grace and The Rancher Mary Alford


Description:

Grace Bradford is living a lie. To the world she has the perfect life: A promising country music career and a husband who adores her. But her husband isn’t the man everyone believes him to be. When a car accident widows her and ends her career, Grace escapes to Delaney Mountain. But moving to the remote town doesn’t wipe away the ugly secret of her marriage.Kyle Delaney never intended to return to Delaney Mountain, but he promises his dying father that he’ll turn their land into a working cattle ranch. He uproots his life in Austin, sells his flourishing business as a music agent, and returns to the Colorado town of his childhood.Can a runaway singer and a makeshift rancher, thrust together by circumstance and held together by the common thread of loss and a love of music, find hope and a happily-ever-after under the stars of Delaney Mountain?

My thoughts on the book:
Grace is running from a past that she would rather leave in the past and move to hopefully a better future. She is now living in Colorado and it seems her ex sister in law has an option and has no problem making it crystal clear on where she stands. As the past starts to catch up with her will she be able to keep her biggest secret and move on to a future full of hope and love?
Kyle is home on Delaney mountain and he knows some are going to be happy to see him and others are just going to be down right upset about it. He has a past he would like to keep there but coming home to that past it seems he will have to face it. 
When Grace crashes into his life he has a feeling he knows her and he knows what thing he wants to know her better. Will he be able to move forward and enjoy coming home or will he loose it all when he gets news he's not so happy about?
OH my gosh I really, really loved this book. At the beginning of the book it seems that it just might be predictable, but oh no this book is full of surprises and some twist and turns at every page. This book was hard to put down I just needed to know what happen next. I loved all the characters they just seems to add that special element to the story that makes the characters completely relatable. I so can  not wait to read more from Delaney Mountain and the fun characters. If you are looking  for a clean read that a quick fun read then this book is for you, you really can not go wrong.

God Bless the Broken Road Jennifer Dornbush


Description:
A novelization of the upcoming film from the director of God’s Not Dead, God Bless the Broken Road is a heartwarming story about a grieving army widow who finds her way back to her daughter, her faith, and a new love.

Amber Hill never imagined she would find herself a war widow and single mom. She feels robbed and is angry at God, and she doesn’t know how to help her nine-year-old daughter Bree through her grief. Where, Amber wonders, are the Sunday dinners, the picnics, the bike rides, the time together they should be enjoying as a family? Instead, Amber is left with a folded flag and an empty heart.

Cody Jackson has a death wish. Or at least that is what his manager thinks, as Cody pushes his race car and his luck in every race. Is he hiding something, or just daring God and other racers to end the path of destruction he finds himself on as he rounds the last turn? When Cody encourages Bree to join in a Derby car race for local youth, she finds a way to channel her grief into something good—and she likes that her mom and Cody are starting to become friends—or maybe something more.

Cody invites Amber and Bree to see him race, but as they watch Cody narrowly escape a devastating crash, she realizes she can’t lose another person in her life. It’s better to be alone than feel that type of grief again. But when Amber hits rock-bottom, she cries out to God and asks for help. With her faith, her life, her family, and her heart hanging in the balance, Amber is forced to decide between the broken road she knows so well and trusting that God will provide a new path.

Based on the Rascal Flatts song, God Bless the Broken Road is a moving, heart-stirring story about the power of faith to change a life.


My thoughts on the book:
Cody is sent to hicksville USA to train for next car race and this could make or break his career he just needs to show everyone in his racing world that he has what it takes. When Joe his trainer has other was of showing Cody whats important Cody starts to questions Joe's moves and whats he going to do next. When someone catches Cody's eye he wonders what is next in his time here in Clarksville. 
Amber has is all a beautiful house, a beautiful daughter and a husband who is the love of her life and will be coming home any day now. When Ambers world comes crashing in around her she finds herself in a world of hurt and a battle of survival and faith. She starts to question her faith and her everyday walk and wonder what more could go wrong in her life she just needs a break. Will she be able to heal and still continue to raise her daughter and find happiness in it all or will she be so far sucked into her grief she can't find a way out?

This book is not your normal Romantic fiction book. This book deals with lost, love, heartbreak and finding healing in the greiving process while trying to make it through everyday life. I really did enjoy this book it seemed a little long sometimes but others times the book just flew by and I had a hard time putting it down wanting to know what happens next. I did not like Pattie I found her annoying, pretentious and a straight up know it all busy body. I loved how Bree was such an active role and the author didn't try and to make her perfect but made her relatable and allowed her grief to shine in the book as well. You will need to grab some tissue when you read this book there are so heart moments through out. This book was a really good read and well worth it. I can't wait to read more from this author. This is a good clean fiction book.

A Cowboy's Dare Lucy Thompson (Harding Family Book 2)


Description:
Tyrone woke up with a headache—and a wife. And he’s never been so scared in his life. 
Mayor’s daughter Jane Montgomery has always wanted to be more than a social ornament, and now that her father has given her a three-month deadline to find a suitable husband, she’s desperate. Desperate enough to run away from her pampered life of ribbons and bows to pursue her dream of becoming a mechanical engineer.  
But right before her planned escape, she’s the victim of a matchmaking prank involving spiked punch and a certain local rancher. 

Ever since he failed to stop his mother from going mad, Tyrone Harding — local daredevil rancher who runs hunting expeditions under the banner of “Female-Free Adventures” — has shied away from females, feelings, and anything inhibiting his freedom. Wanting to avoid his family’s questions and his own feelings for Jane, he proposes they fake being in love until she leaves for college, thereby freeing them both. 

Their playacting doesn’t fool Tyrone’s brother who challenges him to prove he truly loves Jane. Never one to back down, he accepts the dare: do something loving for her every day — and to record it in a special Cowboy’s Dare book. 

The dare has unexpected consequences, and as the sparks fly between them, Tyrone and Jane begin to wonder if they’ll lose more than they gain when Jane departs for school. 


My thoughts on the book:
Tyrone is not happy with the situation he seems to have found himself in. He can't remember how it happened but he's madder then a horse on a rampage at his sister and now he has a wife, a stubborn wife to deal with, one he is she he doesn't want but seems to have not choose in the matter. Jane is a little surprised to say the least and she is not happy about it either. She is married to a man who despises her and she missed her train to take her to a place of where dreams are made. All they need to do it pretend for one week that they love each other then she can catch the next train out of her to school. She is sick of everyone and living up to there standards and just not being good enough. Will she and Tyrone be able to make it the week of proving to his family that they are in love or will some ones heart be lost in the matter?
Ok I am not a huge fan of historical fiction I find them drab, however with this book I truly could not get enough I loved the story, I loved the characters and I just loved the sassiness of all the women in the book they each held there own. I hope there will be more to come of Danny's story I am sure she will be a pistol for sure. I loved that in this book the base of the storyline was forgiveness and how its not always easy to get there. I truly had a hard time putting this book down I needed to know what was going to happen next. I have never read anything by this author before this but I can not wait to read more. If you are looking for a good clean, and fun read seriously consider grabbing this book you will not regret it.

She’s not running anymore…

After a decade away, Jacie Rose has returned with her daughter to Cherry Lake to renovate a historic hotel…and to lay some ghosts to rest. She knows she’ll have to confront mistakes she made in the past, but she didn’t expect to be living right next door to the guy she once asked to be her husband.

Determined to provide the secure home life for her daughter that she never had, Jacie is not about to bring a man into her life—even one that she sometimes thinks should have been there all along.

Book 2: The Christmas Secret


My thoughts on the book:
Jacie is done running and is back to help make the Montreau hotel whole again. She also knows its time to answer some questions and put Brett behind her and make a life for her daughter. She just has one person she is not happy about coming face to face with and wonders if he will be able to destroy everything she has worked hard for. She also starts to wonder if the life she created is good enough to continue living or is it time for a change. Brett is back in Cherry lake and loves being a farmer even though its hay and not cherry and his family is not happy with his choice of profession. He can not believe Jacie the long ago crush he had in high school is back in town. He wants answers and wonders if he will get them or if they will send Jacie on the run again.
This book is short and sweet, does have some adult language in it. The book seems to tie some of the stuff from other books all together in this one even though they all seem to be written at the same time. The story and the chemistry is fun and simple while popping in places. I have to say though towards the end of the book it really seemed to rush the story along and was a bit abrupt. Over all not to bad of a story.

Snow Job Kelly Fitzpatrick


Description:

Natalie Duncan is caught off guard and on the road over the Christmas holiday by a blinding snowstorm. In an act of desperation, she picks up a hitchhiker along the mountain pass. When night closes in and the storm worsens, they take refuge in an abandoned cabin to wait out the blizzard. 

Russ Crew is instantly attracted to Natalie, but the gold band on her finger stops him from pursuing her. 
Natalie, a widow, is also drawn to him except the difference in their ages convinces her that he’s a nice guy simply being polite. Due in part to their desperate situation they form an emotional bond that soon turns physical. But once the snow melts, can they make a relationship work in the world outside their ramshackle cabin?


My thoughts on the book:

Natalie is on her way to do a favor for her brother. When she gets stuck in a blizzard and decides to help a hitch hiker who looks like he just broke down. She never does this and is wondering what she was doing and what would happen next. Russ is on his way to his next home and his next job in hopes to start his life anew. However it seemed that everything is against him. When he gets stuck in a blizzard his only hope is the car coming his way. When Natalie and he come along a cabin they seem to stuck and have to find ways to stay warm and stay out of the cold and boy does he have some ways. Will he be able to get through to Natalie and her heart or at the end will it all become to an end?
I was not a fan of this book. I did appreciate how for the most part the author tried to keep the language clean, that being said there are some adult scenes through out the book. I felt like there really wasn't much of a heart to this story I also felt like it seem to repeat its self a lot. This story was not for me however if you want to give it a chance its a fairly quick read.
