Great Romantic Suspense -- Hidden Peril

Irene Hannon is one of my favorite writers of romantic suspense, and Hidden Peril is just one of the many reasons why!

The story-line is intriguing, the suspense is nail-biting, and the romance is just right! The characters are complex and very well developed. All in all, it's just a great story!

I highly recommend Hidden Peril to fans of great romantic suspense.

Thanks to JustRead Publicity for providing a copy of the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.

About the Book:

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray’s latest Christmas novel in her Amish of Hart County series.

It’s set to be a white Christmas in Hart County, and Grace King is pet-sitting in a beautiful home with only a difficult dachshund for company. Just as she starts to miss the bustle of her large Amish family, Grace runs into a familiar face. Living right next door is John Michael Miller. He’s a fireman now, but five years ago, he had courted her older sister, then broke her heart. Seeing him again stirs Grace’s anger, but also reminds her of deeper feelings she’s done her best to deny.

The infatuation John Michael once saw in Grace’s eyes is long gone, though his complicated attraction to her remains. He had walked away all those years ago when he realized he was falling in love with the wrong sister. Now, as suspicious fires are set in their community, that’s not an option. Grace dismisses his warnings, and John Michael vows to keep an eye on her. But he can’t help wondering if he’s reconnected with Grace, only to risk losing her again.

Now all John Michael wants for Christmas is to keep Grace safe, in the hopes that they can one day have a future together.

More Suspense in Hart County-- Her Fear

Her Fear is another good installment in Shelley Shepard Gray's Amish of Hart County series. Like the others in this series, this book can easily be read in order in the series or as a stand-alone.

This story involves a wide range of characters, some very likable and/or lovable, and some not so much. Sadie finds herself in a very difficult, and even frightening, situation with distant kin. Thanks to a caring young Amish EMT, there is hope for her in spite of her bleak situation.

Fans of good Amish fiction should enjoy this story, filled with not only romance but also a good deal of suspense.

Thanks to the author and her publisher for providing a copy of Her Fear. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.

About the Book:

In New York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray’s latest novel of suspense in her Amish of Hart County series, an EMT falls for a woman with ties to an Amish community where people are dying similar, suspicious deaths.

Sadie Detweiler never imagined she’d move to Kentucky, yet here she is: a pregnant, unmarried Amish girl banished by unforgiving parents to live with kin she barely knows. The men are gruff and her cousins are secretive. Worst of all, elderly matriarch Verba becomes mysteriously ill shortly after Sadie moves in. When EMT Noah Freeman arrives, Sadie immediately notices he’s unlike any other Amish man she’s met. Noah is warm, confident, and has an easy way with practically everyone in the community, both Amish and English. Though Sadie is drawn to him, she has little hope he will reciprocate her feelings once he learns she’s with child.

Noah can’t understand how a girl as sweet and lovely as Sadie ended up sleeping on a cot in Verba Stauffer’s kitchen. He also senses Sadie is terrified of something. Concerned, he checks up on her. Eventually they strike up a friendship and soon their attraction is undeniable. When Verba later dies at the hospital and her death is followed by two others, Noah’s boss wants him to dig around the Amish community for clues. He agrees—for Sadie’s sake—because only the truth will keep her safe and by his side.

Engaging Amish Story -- A Simple Singing

A Simple Singing, the second book in Leslie Gould's Sisters of Lancaster County series, is another really good Amish story.

There are some of the typical elements in an Amish romance -- a young Amish girl struggling with her feelings about more than one young man and how to make a decision that might involve her leaving the church. But this story is much more complex than that, including a story from Marie's family's past that may be of great help in her deciding what direction her future should take.

I highly recommend this engaging story to fans of great Amish fiction.

About the Book:

How Will She Choose Between the Life She's Always Envisioned and One She Never Imagined?  

For years, Marie Bachmann thought of herself as the "good" daughter. She was the most loving to their mother and the most dedicated to their Amish way of life. But when a Mennonite farmhand, Gordon Martin, shows interest in her, she can't help but be flattered--until her mother sends her off to Florida. While there, Marie begins spending time with rebellious Elijah Jacobs, the bishop's son from back home.


When Gordon shows up in Florida to volunteer at a homeless shelter, her life becomes even more complicated. At the same time, her aunt begins telling her about the uncommon bravery of one of Marie's Civil War-era ancestors . . . a story that begins to work at Marie's heart.

Marie hopes returning home may simplify life, but Elijah soon follows. As she grapples with whether she should court Elijah or leave the church for Gordon, the story of Annie Bachmann shines a light on what God has for Marie's future.

Family and Loyalty -- More Than Meets the Eye

Karen Witemeyer's More Than Meets the Eye is a very touching story of family, loyalty and faith. The characters are forced to make very difficult decisions when those issues come into conflict.

The story is a very engaging one, and the characters are complex and well-developed. They have to deal with both internal and external conflicts, even to the point of life-and-death situations. Long-held agendas are weighed against the reality of the present and dreams for the future. Faith and love play important roles in how all those pieces work out. And the play on words in the title of the book is a fun touch.

Thanks to Bethany House for providing a copy of More Than Meets the Eye. I am happy to share my own thoughts for this review.

About the Book:


When Her Family Is Threatened, She Doesn't Expect Falling in Love to Be Their Best Defense

Sweet Christmas Story -- The Christmas Remedy

If you're looking for a sweet Christmas story, a little out of the ordinary Amish romance, The Christmas Remedy by Cindy and Erin Woodsmall could be just the right choice.

The characters are fun to get to know and the story is a heartwarming one. This mother-in-law/daughter-in-law author team does a great job in this story.


Thanks to the authors and their publisher for providing a copy of the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts for this review.

About the Book:

When an Old Order Amish woman takes a job at a small-town pharmacy struggling to survive in a world of "big box" stores, her motive is to help her Plain community. But the advent of the holiday season brings an unusual mystery to the surface--and possibly love.

Twenty-four-year-old Holly Zook lives a unique life for a young Amish woman. Years ago, her bishop allowed her to continue her education and become the lead technician for Greene's Pharmacy, an old-timey drugstore that looks out for the Amish community--a group largely without secure healthcare plans. She knows she can't marry and hold onto her professional job. She's Amish, and she can only have one or the other, so she spurns love and works toward addressing treatable diseases--like the one that claimed her father's life.

As long as Holly continues to avoid Joshua Smucker, the one man who draws her like a warm hearth in winter, she should be fine. When something unexpected threatens Greene's Pharmacy, Holly and Joshua must work together to unravel what's happened and find the "missing" patient before the Board of Pharmacy shuts them down. As the snows of December arrive, with Christmas in the air, will Holly succumb to the generous spirit of the season?

Awesome Historical Romance (with a GIVEAWAY) -- With This Pledge

Banner_WithThisPledge_BlogJR

Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for With This Pledge by Tamera Alexander, the first full novel of the Carnton series, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
_______________________________________________

MY REVIEW

With This Pledge is Tamera Alexander's awesome first full-length novel in her Carnton series. Last year she set the stage with her captivating novella, Christmas at Carnton.

This story drops you right into a major battle of the Civil War fought on and near the grounds of the Carnton plantation just outside Franklin, Tennessee. Thanks to her fantastic storytelling skills, Tamera Alexander makes you see, feel, and hear the horrors and tragedy of the Battle of Franklin and its aftermath, without unnecessary graphic details. Her characters are full of passion, conflict, loss, fear, hatred, and love. And they battle with those feelings as they go about the necessary activities of trying to put their damaged bodies and lives back together and face an unknown future. The author lets you experience those struggles through the eyes of a wide array of characters -- from battle-weary soldiers to concerned property owners, ministering nuns, apprehensive slaves, small children, and a compassionate governess. And as always, you can count on authenticity in the historical setting of a Tamera Alexander novel.

I highly recommend With This Pledge to anyone interested in extremely well-written historical romance. Thanks to JustRead Publicity Tours for providing a copy of this book. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Title: With This Pledge

Series: Carnton, Book 1  

Author: Tamera Alexander

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

Release Date: January 8, 2019  

Genre: Historical Romance  

History takes on vivid life in the stunning first full-length installment of USA TODAY bestselling Tamera Alexander’s new series, The Carnton Novels.  

What can a woman—a mere governess—do against the scourge of slavery?

Elizabeth “Lizzie” Clouston’s quietly held principles oppose those of the Southern Cause—but when forty thousand soldiers converge on the fields of Franklin, Tennessee, the war demands an answer. The Carnton home where she is governess is converted into a Confederate field hospital, and Lizzie is called upon to assist the military doctor with surgeries that determine life or death. Faced with the unimaginable, she must summon fortitude, even as she fears for the life of Towny, her fiancĂ© and lifelong friend.

As a young soldier lies dying in Lizzie’s arms, she vows to relay his final words to his mother, but knows little more than the boy’s first name. That same night, decorated Mississippi sharpshooter Captain Roland Ward Jones extracts a different promise from Lizzie: that she intervene should the surgeon decide to amputate his leg.

Lizzie is nothing if not a woman of her word, earning the soldiers’ respect as she tends to the wounded within Carnton’s walls. None is more admiring than Captain Jones, who doesn’t realize she is pledged to another. But as Lizzie’s heart softens toward the Confederate captain, she discovers that his moral ground is at odds with her own. Now torn between love, principles, and promises made, she struggles to be true to her heart while standing for what she knows is right—no matter the cost.

From the pages of history and the personal accounts of those who endured the Battle of Franklin, Tamera Alexander weaves the real-life love letters between Captain Roland Ward Jones and Miss Elizabeth Clouston into a story of unlikely romance first kindled amid the shadows of war.

A Fun Story (with a giveaway) -- Flights of Fancy

Mix together a runaway heiress who tries not so successfully to fill the role of a housekeeper, a young lawyer bent on making his fortune and mark on society while still caring for family, a forgetful old farmer and his injured wife, a family of lovable but abandoned children, a pet cow named Buttercup who enjoys spending time indoors, a moody hen named Elmer, and . . . well, you get the picture! Jen Turano's latest book, Flights of Fancy, is a fun story filled with a hodge-podge of characters.

As is always true of a Jen Turano book, you can't read the story without laughing, or at least smiling, as you see all the crazy scenarios she puts her characters through. But there is also much more to the story than just the humor. Some pretty unnerving things happen on and round Glory Manor. And Miss Isadora Delafield and Mr. Ian Mackenzie both learn some pretty important lessons about what is real and what is important in life and find themselves involved in things that hugely impact many of their friends and family.

I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys historical fiction in a fun setting.  Thanks to Celebrate Lit for providing a copy of Flights of Fancy. I was glad to share my own thoughts in this review.

About the Book


Title: Flights of Fancy

Author: Jen Turano

Genre: Christian Historical Romance, Gilded Age

Release date: January 1, 2019

Publisher: Bethany House

Miss Isadora Delafield may be an heiress, but her life is far from carefree. When her mother begins pressuring her to marry an elderly and uncouth duke, she escapes from the high society world she’s always known and finds herself to be an unlikely candidate for a housekeeper position in rural Pennsylvania.

Mr. Ian MacKenzie is known for his savvy business sense and has built his reputation and fortune completely on his own merits. But when his adopted parents are in need of a new housekeeper and Isadora is thrown into his path, he’s unexpectedly charmed by her unconventional manner.

Neither Isadora nor Ian expected to find the other so intriguing, but when mysterious incidents on the farm and the truth of Isadora’s secret threaten those they love, they’ll have to set aside everything they thought they wanted for a chance at happy-ever-after.

Guest post from Jen

“Flights of Fancy” is the first book in the American Heiress Series. What inspired you to write this series?

The inspiration for this entire series started off with a What If? All of my proposals for new series start off that way, and this time it was – What if Consuelo Vanderbilt had balked when her mother insisted she marry the Duke of Marlborough – and then that led to – What if she’d run away until her mother came to her senses? Just like that, an entire series was born – a bit of a different take on American heiresses because in all three books, my heiresses might decide to go a tad…rogue. We start off with Miss Isadora Delafield – who does run off to avoid marriage to a duke, then we get to meet Miss Poppy Garrison, who is an unexpected heiress but who can’t quite seem to get a handle on the expected social decorum of the day, and then the final book revolves around Miss Beatrix Waterbury – who gets banished to Chicago after she annoys her mother one too many times, and once there, well, gets up to a bit of mischief.

How do you come up with the names of your characters?

I find most of my names as I research the New York Four-Hundred, although I normally take a first name here, a last name there so I’m not stepping on any toes by writing about an actual historical figure – except for some of the main figures in New York society back then, such as Mr. Ward McAllister – who was the social arbiter of the day, or Mrs. William Astor, who was the queen of that society. What I don’t do is simply make up names, no matter how outrageous they may appear. And, no matter how I may love a certain name, if the character decides it doesn’t suit them, that’s it, it’s out and I’m back to the drawing board.

How do you picture your character? Do you use Pinterest, magazines, movies?

Odd as this may seem, I don’t use pictures for my characters. They start off in my mind as a blurry figure, and then, they develop from there – I like to keep my descriptions of them somewhat vague on the pages so that the reader can imagine them exactly the way they’d like them to be.

What are some of your favorite resources for historical research?

I’ve been building up a research library over the past few years and now have over 200 books dedicated to the Gilded Age. My favorites are – “A Season of Splendor” by Greg King, “Society as I Have Found It” by Ward McAllister, “The Gilded Age in New York – 1870-1910” by Esther Crain, and “ ‘King Lehr’ and the Gilded Age” by Elizabeth Drexel Lehr.

The setting for “Flights of Fancy” is a bit of a departure for you since it’s set in and outside of Pittsburgh. Any reason for that?

My mom was born in Pittsburgh, and unfortunately, her father, a prominent attorney back in the day, died when she was only four. I thought it would be cool to set a story in Pittsburgh, which would then allow me to really dive into some research. And get this – while I was doing that research, I found this obscure journal called “Memoirs of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. In that journal was a bit about my great-grandfather, Fred, his wife, Susie, my grandfather, and his brother and sister, but I’d never heard about this brother, who apparently died quite young. One of the most fabulous research tidbits I’ve uncovered to date.

What are you working on now?

I’ve just recently turned in the content edits for the second book in this series, “Diamond in the Rough,” and I’ve also turned in a novella about the Harvey Girls that will be coming out in a novella collection in Fall, 2019. With those out of the way, I’m now starting the third and final book in the American Heiress series, Miss Beatrix Waterbury’s story, but I’m having a bit of a struggle with the hero at the moment – he was supposed to be Edward, but he doesn’t want to be an Edward – I think he wants to be Norman – but, time will tell on that one – don’t hold me to the name – it’ll depend on if he changes his mind or not – pesky characters.

You seem to enjoy adding animals in many of your stories. Will we find any animals in “Flights of Fancy?”

Since Miss Isadora Delafield ends up on a farm, I do believe you will find a few animals, such as an adorable cow by the name of Buttercup, a few goats that seem to have a great liking for laundry, and…there might be some chickens.

Thanks for stopping by today, everyone! Always enjoy visiting with all of you – in fact, that’s the best part of my job!

All the best,
~ Jen ~

Great Romantic Suspense (with GIVEAWAY) -- Code of Valor

Lynette Eason's latest book just may be her best yet! Code of Valor is packed with suspense from the very first page.

If you have read the previous books in her Blue Justice series, you have already met the St. Johns, a close-knit family made up of various types of law enforcement officers who take both their jobs and their family very seriously. Code of Valor highlights Detective Brady St. John as he unexpectedly finds himself thrust into a complicated and very dangerous situation. 

The suspense level in the book stays high to the end. And the romance thread is at just the right pace. The characters in the story are well-developed and intriguing to get to know. The "good guys" are great. The "bad guys" are horrible. But there is plenty of mystery to leave you wondering which category some of them fall into.

I high recommend Code of Valor to fans of great romantic suspense. Thanks to Lynette Eason and Revell for providing me with the book. I am happy to share my own thoughts in this review.

****************

GIVEAWAY!!!

I happen to have two copies of Code of Valor and would be glad to share with one of you as a gift on my birthday! Comment below by 6 p.m. on January 12 and I will randomly choose a winner for a free copy!

About the Book:

She's living proof that what you don't know could kill you.

What Detective Brady St. John really needs is a relaxing vacation. Unfortunately, just as the sun is setting on his second day at a friend's cabin on Lake Henley, he hears a scream and races to rescue a woman from her would-be killer. When the killer escapes only to return to finish the job, Brady vows to utilize all of his many resources to keep her safe--and catch those who would see her dead.

Financial crimes investigator Emily Chastain doesn't trust many people. And even though she's trying to cooperate with the detective who saved her life, there are some things she doesn't know--and some things you just don't share with a stranger. Little does she suspect that what she doesn't know just might get them both killed.
