My Stubborn Heart


Loved, LOVED this book and read it in one day-- the characters were real to life, a bit snarky, and the storyline was interesting. I didn't want the book to end and will definitely be following this author!

After All


I enjoyed this read--Deborah is one of those authors I find myself coming back to time after time. I look forward to any more books she may write as I enjoyed this series.

Just Between You & Me


An enjoyable summer day read, this is an author I have not read before but have heard a lot about. I'm glad I checked her out!

Can I Get An Amen


A very light, funny read by a new author-- another one to check out!

Wish You Were Here


Another wonderful read for the month of June! The main character is a bride who realizes right before getting married that she is making the wrong move and the story rolls from there. Awesome story, and another author I will be following from here on.

This book was actually the ending of a series. I haven't read the other books in the series but came across this one and ended up reading it solo. I enjoyed reading the end of Emily's story and may go back to read the beginning books.

That's Why I'm Here


The Spielmans lived in the same city as I currently do, so it was neat to see places I know pop up in the story. I'd heard about Stefanie Spielman for years, but didn't really know the whole story of her fight with cancer and eventual death. I really enjoyed the story but gave it a lower rating because there was a LOT of football talk and I am just not a sports person. I have a hard time reading about sports and sports plays, team trading, etc. For that reason there were portions of the book I skipped completely-- otherwise, it was an entertaining read.

Seaside Reunion


I enjoyed this tale of childhood friends reunited. It was a light & quick read but very enjoyable. 

Fatal Secrets


This was the first book I read of Barbara's. I enjoyed it, but it wasn't one of my favorites of the month. I felt like the storyline could have been more developed, as the topic of the Witness Protection Program is very interesting!

Wildflowers from Winter


I have been hearing raving reviews of Wildflowers from Winter for months and was so excited when my copy came in at the library. I was not disappointed! Katie's debut novel was well written, the characters were well developed, and I couldn't put the book down!

Another debut author I enjoyed checking out. The book was a little deep at times for me, as I tend to just enjoy my reading and get pulled into a book, rather than have to work at it to enjoy it- overall, a great new author!

Finally and Forever


(I eagerly awaited this book from Robin Jones Gunn, as I've been a fan of Christy and Katie for many, many years. While I enjoyed it and found it a fast read, I felt it lacked some of the inner depth I've come to love in RJG's books.)
