Ever After by Jude Deveraux

What else can be said about the Montgomery and the Taggerts. They are almost the perfect men and women. This family is the type everyone would love to grow up in. Hallie is almost a dumpy girl next to her beautiful stepsister Shelley. Though Shelley lies to get things that she wants and this was how Hallie ends up meeting Jamie Taggert. He was injured in an accident and Hallie is a wonderful physical therapist. She moves to Nantucket where she has inherited a haunted house. There is a lot of romance and many secrets that need to emerge. I really enjoyed the story and the characters. I received this from Firsttoread for a fair and honest opinion.


In Firefly Valley by Amanda Cabot

This is the second book in the Texas Crossroads series. You do not have to read the first book called At Bluebonnet Lake first but I recommend that you do. It makes this one more enjoyable because you recognize many of the minor characters. This book is about Marisa St. George and Blake Kendall. Marisa is an accountant that loses her job due to downsizing. Because of this she moves back to her hometown in Texas where she will work at the resort of Rainbows End. Here she meets Blake who is a famous writer who has writers block. They get to be good friends and then things happen to cause Marisa to not be sure who she can trust.This story is a great romance with a few secrets that need to be revealed to see if people can have second chances. I really enjoyed this story and love the characters. I look forward to the next book in the series. I received this book from Revell Reads for a fair and honest opinion. 


Murder, D.C. By Neely Tucker

This was an interesting book. I wasn’t sure in the beginning if I was going to like it but it really pulled me on. There were so many secrets in this family. Sully Carter is a reporter who sees the dead body of a rich black college age student. No one wants him to find out the truth of what happened to this kid because of many secrets. Really enjoyed. I received an ebook copy from Firsttoread for a fair and honest opinion. 


The Pharaoh’s Daughter by Mesu Andrews

This was a nicely written biblical novel. Some people say they had a hard time getting in to the story but I did not. I loved it from the beginning to the end. This story tells the story of Moses stepmother and his parents and how they may have actually interacted. Anippe is the daughter of a Pharaoh who finds Moses in the water.the story tells the story of Anippe before and after she finds Moses. This is a story of joy and sadness. Anippe learns many things including who the one true God is. No one should miss this tale. Jesu Andrews did a great job of imagining what the people of this time might have been like. I received this book from Blogging for books for a fair and honest opinion.   0 0 0 

About This Book

“Fear is the most fertile ground for faith.”


 “You will be called Anippe, daughter of the Nile. Do you like it?” Without waiting for a reply, she pulls me into her squishy, round tummy for a hug. 

I’m trying not to cry. Pharaoh’s daughters don’t cry.

When we make our way down the tiled hall, I try to stop at ummi Kiya’s chamber. I know her spirit has flown yet I long for one more moment. Amenia pushes me past so I keep walking and don’t look back. 

Like the waters of the Nile, I will flow.


Anippe has grown up in the shadows of Egypt’s good god Pharaoh, aware that Anubis, god of the afterlife, may take her or her siblings at any moment. She watched him snatch her mother and infant brother during childbirth, a moment which awakens in her a terrible dread of ever bearing a child. Now she is to be become the bride of Sebak, a kind but quick-tempered Captain of Pharaoh Tut’s army. In order to provide Sebak the heir he deserves and yet protect herself from the underworld gods, Anippe must launch a series of deceptions, even involving the Hebrew midwives—women ordered by Tut to drown the sons of their own people in the Nile. 

     When she finds a baby floating in a basket on the great river, Anippe believes Egypt’s gods have answered her pleas, entrenching her more deeply in deception and placing her and her son Mehy, whom handmaiden Miriam calls Moses, in mortal danger.

  As bloodshed and savage politics shift the balance of power in Egypt, the gods reveal their fickle natures and Anippe wonders if her son, a boy of Hebrew blood, could one day become king. Or does the god of her Hebrew servants, the one they call El Shaddai, have a different plan—for them all?
