Why have I never heard of Dorothy Love before? Love has a unique sense of storytelling that keeps the pages turning. Normally historical romance is a hit or a miss with me. I loved it! It’s filled with so much mystery, romance, and characters who want more out of their lives. All of the hard work and research that Love put into writing shines through. Highly recommended!

The Wonder of You by Susan May Warren

Release Date:  July 2015

Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers

ISBN: 978-1-4143-7845-9

Genre: Christian Fiction, Romance

Series: Christiansen Family, Book 5

Susan May Warren has been on my to-read list for quite some now. This is book number five in the Christiansen family series and it was amazing. You don’t have to have read any of the other books in the series to read this one, but it definitely helps. Warren has the gift of writing real, inspirational, and engaging stories. The Christiansens will make you feel as if you are a part of their family as they journey through life. If you are a Karen Kingsbury fan, you’d probably love Susan May Warren because they both share the family aspect. The only difference is, Susan May Warren’s characters are much more realistic and aren’t too perfect. None of them are perfect and they aren’t afraid to get messy. Non-Christians aren’t made to look like the bad guys. It’s filled with twists and turns that keep you flipping through the pages. It is a must-read. Continue reading

Untangled by Carey Scott

Release Date: May 2015

Publisher: Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group

ISBN: 9780800726591

Genre: Christian Living

Have you ever felt worthless, not good enough, or guilty because you don’t measure up? Have you ever felt like you were alone while everyone else seemed to have their lives together? We all want to feel valued. That we are worth something. We crave the approval and acceptance in the eyes of family, friends, and even strangers. We always fall short whenever we seek the world’s standards. We also cannot believe we are who God says we are -accepted, loved, beautiful, and treasured if we seek these lies. Continue reading
