Come Back To Me

The ultimate cure that could heal any disease? Crazy.

That’s exactly what research scientist Marian Creighton has always believed about her father’s quest, even if it does stem from a desire to save her sister Ellen from the genetic disease that stole their mother from them. But when her father falls into a coma after drinking a vial of holy water believed to contain traces of residue from the Tree of Life, Marian must question all of her assumptions. He’s left behind tantalizing clues that suggest he’s crossed back in time. Insane. Until Marian tests his theories and finds herself in the Middle Ages during a dangerous peasant uprising.

William Durham, a valiant knight comes to Marian’s rescue and offers her protection . . . as his wife. The longer Marian stays in the past, the more she cares about William. Can she ever find her father and make it back to the present to heal her sister? And when the time comes to leave, will she want to?

Bestselling author Jody Hedlund is your guide down the twisting waters of time to a volatile era of superstition, revolts, and chivalry in this suspenseful story.

My Rating: 4 Stars

What a captivating and unusual read! This storyline definitely captured me from the first page and I had trouble putting it down until I finished it. What a tale of romance, mystery and adventure within a time travel tale. Time travel books are not my go-tos at all, so this one was a bit of a departure for me reading wise but I enjoyed all the facets of this immersive read and am eager for book two in the series to see what happens next!! Too bad it doesn’t releaser for months…I want it now!! I purchased the audible copy of this book and the narration was very good. A fun listen.

My Rating: 4 Stars

This was such a fun read! I enjoyed the dual time mystery and I thought Kimberley wove the different eras together really well. Luke and Margo and Kayla and Steven were really great characters and their romances developed naturally. The bad guy in the current day timeline totally surprised me and the ending of the historical time line was really good. I really enjoyed this easy dual time read. Looking forward to more of these!

The Heart’s Charge (Hanger’s Horsemen, #2)

Members of Hanger’s Horsemen, Mark Wallace and Jonah Brooks arrive in Llano County, Texas, to deliver a steed, never expecting they’d deliver a baby as well. Left with an infant to care for, they head to a nearby foundling home, where Mark encounters the woman he’d nearly married a decade ago.

After failing at love, Katherine Palmer dedicated her life to caring for children, teaming up with Eliza Southerland to start Harmony House. From mixed ancestry, illegitimate, and female, Eliza understands the pain of not fitting society’s mold. Yet those are the very attributes that lead her to minister to outcast children. The taciturn Jonah intrigues her with his courage and kindness, but there are secrets behind his eyes–ghosts from wars past and others still being waged.

However, when a handful of urchin children from the area go missing, a pair of Horsemen are exactly what the women need. Working together to find the children, will these two couples find love as well?

My Rating: 5 Stars

This dual romance gets ALL the stars!! Oh my goodness, I can’t tell you how much I adored Mark, Jonah and the ladies that captured their hearts in this story, and don’t even get me started on the adorable heart stealing kiddos. What fantastic characters make up this story, and what a story it is! This story pulled me in from the opening pages and it didn’t let go once. Karen’s stories are always amazing and this one is truly one of her best. The history between Kate and Mark, the mystery that Jonah stumbles upon and the chemistry between Eliza and Jonah help make this story incredible. Do not miss it!!

Former CIA sniper Kadance Tolle possesses a special set of skills and a rare pedigree. She comes from a family of assassins, and by saving Lyndon Vaile’s life she risks being found by them. Despite the danger, Kadance feels compelled to help Lyndon discover who is after him–and his research that seems to prove that the Ebola virus was manmade and is about to be weaponized. With shadowy figures pursuing them and a Mastermind watching their every move, Kadance and Lyndon must scramble to stop an impending bioattack at the State of the Union address. But their warnings fall on deaf ears, and it becomes increasingly clear that there’s no one they can trust–except perhaps each other.

Strap in for a breakneck story that will have you up all night, hurtling toward the last page as the clock ticks and time runs out.

My Rating 3: Stars

What an unusual story “Never Miss” is. This book surprised me with lots of twists and turns and a bit of a surprising ending. The characters fit the storyline very well and I really liked Lyndon. Mac the cat kind of stole the story for me too. He is quite the emotional support animal. The storyline is exciting and kept me guessing as to what the outcome was going to be. The story also moved well and was a quick easy listen. All in all, an interesting read.

What a interesting mystery! Cold case mysteries have become my favorite over the years and this was an exciting one. I really enjoyed the twists and turns in this one, that kept me guessing as to the culprits.

The Shell Collector

The Shell Collector is a beautiful story full of love, loss, and second chances.”–#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber 

From USA Today bestselling author Nancy Naigle, The Shell Collector is a touching novel of a friendship that crosses generations, and learning how even the smallest gifts can change a life for good.

Two years after her husband’s death, Amanda Whittier has two children to raise alone, an abandoned dream of starting a business, and a fixer-upper cottage by the sea. She has no room in her life for anything else and little interest in moving on after losing the man she loved.

Paul Grant is a relative newcomer to the area, and his work with former military dogs needing rehabilitation has been good for the town. Though he loved once before, he’s convinced he’s not suited for romance and is determined to find meaning–alone–through his work and role in the community.

Widowed Maeve Lindsay was born and raised on Whelk’s Island. Spirited, kind, and a little mischievous, she pours her life into the town. But she carries a secret that shapes her every move.

Together, these three souls find encouragement in the most mysterious places and discover a love that’s bigger than their pain, healing their wounded hearts in ways none of them could have hoped for or expected.

My Rating: 5 Stars

This book gave me ALL the feels! I really enjoyed this sweet story chock full of lots of heart and fantastic characters. From Amanda and Paul, to Tug and Maeve, to sweet Jesse and Hailey, these characters made the story. I was rooting for these characters from the first page and the ending was pretty much a perfect one for the characters and for me as the reader. I really really loved this story and I think it would make an excellent Hallmark movie. Here’s hoping!!

I purchased a copy of the audiobook on Audible and it was very well done. Great narrator and enjoyable listening experience.

The Paris Betrayal

After a rough mission in Rome involving the discovery of a devastating bioweapon, Company spy Ben Calix returns to Paris to find his perfectly ordered world has collapsed. A sniper attack. An ambush. A call for help that brings French SWAT forces down on his head. Ben is out. This is a severance–reserved for incompetents and traitors.

Searching for answers and anticipating a coming attack, Ben and a woman swept up in his misfortunes must travel across Europe to find the sniper who tried to kill him, the medic who saved his life, the schoolmaster who trained him, and an upstart hacker from his former team. More than that, Ben must come to grips with his own insignificance as the Company’s plan to stop Leviathan from unleashing the bioweapon at any cost moves forward without him–and he struggles against the infection that is swiftly claiming territory within his own body.

Award-winning author James R. Hannibal rachets up the tension on every page of this suspenseful new thriller.

My Rating: 4 Stars

What a thrilling, heart pounding read! This book starts off with a bang and it doesn’t let up once during this fast paced, exciting story. I very much enjoyed my introduction to a James R Hannibal story. I literally could not put this one down, because I had to know what happened next! There were several twists in the book, that shocked me and at least one jaw-dropping moment that took me totally by surprise. My favorite element of the book were the humorous lines. James wove in a bit of humor throughout the book which I really liked. If you enjoy fast paced, thrilling drama don’t miss this one!

All That Really Matters

Molly McKenzie’s bright personality and on-trend fashion and beauty advice have earned her an impressive social media following, as well as a big paycheck each month. When her manager-turned-boyfriend says she has an audition to appear as a host on a makeover show that nominates underprivileged youth, her dream of further fame seems to be coming true. There’s just one catch: she has little experience interacting with people in need.

When her manager-boyfriend convinces her to partner with a local organization, she begins volunteering with a summer youth program. The program’s director, Silas Whittaker, challenges her at every turn, but she swiftly grows more attached to the kids–and him–every day. 

As Molly experiences an acceptance unlike anything she’s known, she wrestles with the lies she’s been believing about herself for years. She thought she knew what mattered most in life, but maybe she’s had it wrong this whole time, and there’s more to being truly seen than what she’s built her entire life on.

My Rating: 5 Stars

This book was ah-mazing!! I absolutely loved the the beautiful story that is this book. To see the character growth of Molly, was such a fun journey, that you don’t see in many books. The secondary characters are awesome and I can’t wait to see these characters again in Nicole’s spring 2022 release. The ending was perfect and so well done. Quite simply, I loved this book! Don’t miss it!!!

All You Need Is Love

Shannon Baker likes the one man she can’t have.

To be fair, the day she meets her sister’s boyfriend on the California beach, she thinks he’s a tourist—a really charming tourist who understands more of her heart than people she’s known her whole life.

But Marshall has a secret. He’s actually single.

He’s only pretending to date Shannon’s sister—his co-worker—because her ex dumped her hours before a family reunion. In return, she’s promised to recommend Marshall for a promotion back in New York.

But things get complicated when he meets Shannon, a woman so unlike anyone he’s ever known. Because she’s sweet and kind and … selfless.

And, somehow, she sees something in him.

Unfortunately, being with her would ruin all his plans. Or is love enough to make everything work out the way it should?

My Rating: 5 Stars

What a spectacular ending to this book! I have to admit, I struggled a bit with the first part of this book, wanting to slap Quinn and hug Shannon. I identified with some of Shannon’s struggles and insecurities, which made the first few chapters a bit hard for me to read at times, but wowza that ending. I LOVED the last few chapters of the book, Lindsay wrote a perfect ending and with the epilogue, I can’t wait for the next series which will take us back to Walker Beach with what promises to be a cool setup for the next series. So excited for those!!
