Gathering Shadows by Nancy Mehl

This was another great book by Nancy Mehl. I loved the mix of English and Mennonite. This is a nice quiet small town that can still have problems like the big cities. Both of the main characters learn a little bit about learning to live better lives. I look forward to the next book in this series. Had a hard time putting this down.
I received this from Bethany House blogger for a fair and honest opinion.

Power Play by Catherine coulter

I love the books about Savich and Sherlock. When she has them in more of the stories these are my favorites. I could not put this one down. This was one thrill after another. Always look forward to the next installment and hope she does as well with the next one. I received an ebook copy of this fromFirst to Read for a fair and honest opinion.

The pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn

This is a well written book with a great story. Actually it almost has three story lines. The first story is of course about Tamsen Littlejohn. She is a young woman living with her mother and stepfather. Her stepfather is trying to get her to marry someone she does not want to marry. At a certain point Tamsen tries to run away and she meets Jesse Bird.and he helps her to get away from her stepfather . They travel together and pretend to be married until they can really get married or get somewhere where Tamsen can be safe. There is also the underlying story of the state of North Carolina and the state of Franklin fighting each other. I really liked the way all of these story lines worked together. I had a hard time putting it down.

Woman of Courage by Wanda E Brunstetter

This was great as usual. I don’t think I have ever read a book by Wanda that I have not liked. This one had a girl named Amanda who is a Quaker who is jilted by her fiancĂ©, so she decides to go out west to to be a missionary. She faces many hazards and a nice romance. The romance is with Buck. This story is quick and nice. It flows along very smoothly. It is hard to put down.
