Love Unexpected by Jody Hedlund

This is a story that takes place on Presque Isle, Michigan.  There is a lighthouse romance and pirates.  Who would have thought there were pirates in Michigan on a Great Lake.  I had never read anything about that before.  This really kept my interest throughout the whole book.  There were some twists and turns that helped the romance and hurt it.  People need to learn to talk and listen.  I really look forward to reading more in this series called Beacons of Hope.  I received this through Bethany House for a fair and honest opinion.

Presque Isle, Michigan

What Is the Secret That Could Shipwreck Both of Their Lives?

All Emma Chambers ever wanted was a home, but when her steamboat sinks just outside Presque Isle, she’s left destitute and with no place to stay.

An unlikely solution arises when the lighthouse keeper arrives in town. He’s just lost his wife and is having a difficult time caring for his child. So a traveling preacher gets the idea that the keeper and Emma might be the answer to each other’s dilemma. After a hasty marriage, she finds herself heading to the lighthouse with this handsome but quiet stranger. Nothing in her aimless life, though, has prepared her for parenting a rambunctious toddler, as well as managing a household.

Emma soon suspects Patrick may be hiding something from her, and then she hears a disturbing rumor about the circumstances surrounding his late wife’s death. It seems as if her wish for a home and family of her own could end up leading her once more into turbulent waters.


Every Bride Needs a Groom by Janice Thompson

I don’t usually enjoy plain romances that but but I can’t say that now.  This was so good.  I laughed on almost every page.  Katie and Brady were great together.  It was fun to see how small towns and big towns can be equal when it comes to marriages.  It would have been fun to win a designer wedding dress.  I look forward to the next book in the series.  I received this book from Revell reads for a fair and honest opinion.

Finding Sheba by H. B. Moore

This was a great story about finding the tomb of the Queen of Sheba.  I liked the characters but did not love them.  The historical part of the story was my favorite.  I wanted that to keep going on.  The modern day stuff was a little slow for me until the last part and then it was great.  I look forward to reading more books by H. B. Moore.  I received this ebook from for a fair and honest opinion.

The Legacy by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley

This is the fourth and final book in the Restoration series.  One doe not need to read the first three to enjoy this story.  I have not read any of the first three but still enjoyed this one.  This is kind of a prodigal son story but still well done.  I liked Doug and his family but was not too fond of his friends that partied all the time.  I look forward to reading the other books in this series to learn more about this family.  I received this book from Revell Reads for a fair and honest opinion.
