Book Reviews

When I am not taxiing my children back and forth from school, making meals, cleaning my house, or writing, I am reading! My favorite genres include Christian Nonfiction, Christian Historical Romance and Biblical Fiction. 

While I have not tried my hand at a historical romance yet, you can find a few of my own biblical fiction stories under the Biblical Fiction tab at the top.

I am so excited to share with you my FIRST book

On occasion I review new books (hot of the press!) for Revell Publishing. You can find an overview of these titles here along with a link that will take you to the full review. Aside from a free book, I do not get compensated, so you can trust the honest opinions listed here. 


Labyrinth of Lies is the latest book of award winning author Irene Hannon. With over sixty novels, Hannon has put her skill into weaving another modern, romance thriller. Second book in the Triple Threat series, Labyrinth of Lies follows the story of undercover agents Cate Reilly and Zeke Sloan.

When the daughter of a wealthy businessman goes missing, there is more going on than meets the eye on the posh Ivy Hill Academy campus. When traces of a cartel ring are made known, Cate suspects the girl did not runaway with her boyfriend as initially believed. When the different angles of this case forces Cate and Zeke to work together, the sparks begin to fly. Again. Regret, anger, distrust and attraction all crash together to fuel a raging fire.

A Midnight Dance, written by Joanna Davidson Politano is a diamond. It seems each time she writes, her skill at communicating truth soars to new heights. Davidson also exposes the truth of dreams. The anticipation of a dream can be deceiving as it is perfect without flaw, while discovering the reality of a dream in hand requires strength, perseverance, and embracing the flaws.

This is a must read. Personally, I loved it so much I red it twice! To read the full review, click here.

Beyond The Tides by Liz Johnson mirrored, too closely, one of my favorites series of all time: Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery. Johnson differs from Montgomery with her focus on themes of grief and forgiveness, the basic plot structure is the same. And the parallels between the two made it feel not original. At one point I wondered if Johnson was aiming to modernize the classic but I looked and did not see any mention of it.

Susie Finkbeiner’s latest novel The Nature of Small Birds tells the compelling story of a woman on a journey of healing and self-discovery, who chooses to face her past and search for her birth mother in Vietnam. The story is uniquely told through the eyes of her three closest family members. Beginning in 1975 and spanning the years to present day, Finkbeiner captures a story about American-Vietnam history rarely told to today’s generation.
