You’re the One That I Want by Susan May Warren

This was my favorite book in the Christiansen series. It really rolls all the books together. I will miss this family. Sometimes it is not good to get to the last brother or sister. This book was about Owen, Scotty, and Casper and Raina. Casper goes out to find Owen to tell him he has a daughter by Raina. Owen is near Alaska working on a crab boat but goes overboard to try and save Scotty. They all end up back home to keep Casper out of jail for killing a man. This had a great amount of romance and some suspense. I loved it. I received this book from Tyndale for a fair and honest opinion.  Owen Christiansen has been in a downward spiral since an injury ended his NHL career. But a job on an Alaskan crabbing boat offers a fresh start . . . maybe even a shot at romance with Elise “Scotty” McFlynn, the captain’s daughter.
Used to being one of the guys, to never relying on anyone, Scotty doesn’t believe in happily ever after—especially with someone like Owen. Her instinct is confirmed when Casper Christiansen arrives to drag his prodigal brother home, bringing with him a truckload of family drama—and even worse, the news that Casper is wanted for questioning in connection to a crime back in Minnesota.
But Owen is more than the sum of his mistakes, a truth both he and Scotty discover when she escorts both brothers to Deep Haven as part of her new job on the Anchorage police force. Thrust into an unfamiliar world of family, faith, and fresh starts, Scotty begins to see potential for a happy ending . . . if she’s brave enough to embrace it. Tyndale House Publishers

Exiles: Realm of the Infinite

I don’t usually read too much fantasy anymore but I received an ebook copy of this story from book fun.org for a fair and honest opinion. I am glad that I asked to read it. I enjoyed the story and look forward to reading the next book in this Realms of the Infinite series. It started a little confusing for me and then I got into the flow of the book and had a hard time putting it down.

Paralyzed by Alana Terry

I really enjoyed this Christian suspense fiction novel. I loved the characters.

Summary: Kennedy Stern has returned to campus after surviving an abduction, but old scars cut deep. Vivid flashbacks and terrifying dreams paralyze her, threatening to ruin her academic career and any chance she has at peace or happiness. This mental anguish, however, constitutes only a small fraction of her post-traumatic nightmare.

 

A partner in Kennedy’s kidnapping remains at large and will not stop until he has silenced her witness permanently. His violent resolve risks not only her life, but the safety of anyone who tries to help.

 

Kennedy must engage in a deadly battle of the mind as she struggles to stay alive. While fighting on two fronts — one psychological and one physical — the question isn’t whether she’ll come out of the war stronger in the end.

 

The question is whether she’ll come out of it at all.

The Gift by Wanda E. Brunstetter

Fantastic! This is the second book in the Prairie State Friends series. This seemed to stand alone but I recommend reading the first in the series because Wanda E. Brunstetter books are always wonderful. I have never read one of hers that I didn’t like. This one has Leah Mast who has a gift of healing using reflexology and Adam Beachy who wants nothing to do with reflexology because of something that happened in his childhood. They meet because Adam has a tragedy and his sister and husband die and he is left to raise their children. Leah helps him to care for them. This book has a great bit of romance and just a hint of what will happen next. I really recommend this series. I received a copy of this book from the author for a fair and honest opinion.  

Not everyone thinks Leah has a gift Leah Mast and her family have always considered her to have a healing touch and a special gift for reflexology treating people s ailments by massaging certain places on their feet. But others scoff at the notion, saying the very idea of curing people through their feet is absurd. Adam Beachy is one of those scoffers, even though his own mother used to practice reflexology. And then she left the Amish faith and walked out on her family, leaving Adam s father to raise Adam and his sister alone. Now Adam mocks reflexology and balks at the idea of ever marrying and starting a family of his own.When tragedy strikes, Adam is suddenly a father figure to his nieces. Adam finds himself needing a wife immediately. Despite their differences, Leah seems the best option to fill that role. Can they hope to find peace and love in a modern-day marriage of convenience?”

Find Her by Lisa Gardner

This is a very intense story. I had a very hard time putting this down to go to work or go to bed. This was another great story with D.D. Warren.
