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.

When Grace Sings by Kim Vogel Sawyer

This is the second book in The Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy.  In this book Alexa has opened her B and B.  Anna Grace is planning on marrying Stephen.and she learns that her birth parents live in the town that they might live in once they are married..  Anna Grace needs to learn if she can live in a town with the people she feels abandoned her.  During this Alexa  takes in a reporter who wants to write a big story .

  This story is well written and has a few twists and turns.  I am greatly looking forward to how this will all end.  I received this book through Blogging for Books for a fair and honest opinion.  I need to find out what is going to happen with all these characters.

The Creole Princess by Beth White

This was a well done second book in this series.  You do not need to read the first one to understand what goes on in this book.this takes place during the Revolutionary War near Mobile, Alabama.  This was not an area that I was real familiar with so it made for a good read.  I learned some new stuff on this novel.  I loved Lyse and Rafael.  The story had a few twist and turns and kept me thinking. I received this from Revell reads for a fair and honest opinion.  I look forward to the next book in the series.

Double Cross by DiAnn Mills

This is a story about an FBI agent(Laurel) and a cop(Daniel) who get together to solve a crime against the elderly.  Con artists were targeting Alzheimer’s patients to get them to buy insurance policies and then killing them and making it look natural.  Laurel and Daniel join together with an ex con to help Daniels parents and other elderly people. 

 I loved these characters.  Laurel and Daniel were perfect for each other.  Daniels grandparents were great.    I really was happy how the book ended and was slightly surprised.  Alzheimer’s is a horrible disease and any one that takes advantage of the elderly is horrible.  I am looking forward to the next installment.   This was a wonderful Christian suspense novel.  I received this book from the Tyndale House publishers for a fair and honest opinion.–covers/HiResJpg/978-1-4143-8994-3.jpg
