A Worthy Rebel by Jody Hedlund

I loved the suspense and heartache in this book.  Izzy is fleeing from all she knows and pretends to be someone she isn't in order to heal from an injury.  Cole falls for her as she is healing and in hiding and wants to all he can for her.  Unfortunately when the truth comes out, they both have a lot to work out as they have both began to care for each other.  On top of everything, there is a revolt going on and they are both on seemingly opposite sides.  I loved reading and could not wait to see how it all turned out.



Died in the Wool (A Knit & Nibble Mystery) by Peggy Ehrhart

I am new to this series and requested to read it based on the cover.  I enjoyed reading this mystery and seeing how the group came together to solve the murder.  It was interesting to see how the put together the clues and I will probably go back to read the first one.

A Rumored Fortune by Joanna Davidson Politano

I enjoyed reading this book and seeing how Tressa handled those who came acting one way and really wanting something else.  She and her mother had to find a way to keep things going at their estate when her father died, leaving the family fortune hidden somewhere.  Tressa had to figure out who to trust and and what her father did with all their money.  I liked seeing how Tressa reasoned things out and wanted to find the fortune as well.

The Daily Question for You and Your Child: A Three-Year Spiritual Journal Diary by WaterBrook

Image
An interesting and interactive journal that allows you to capture memories as well grow in faith.  I have enjoyed what I have seen so far and look forward to seeing what is yet to come.  I also think that it will be interesting to look back on what was written in the future to see how things have changed over time.  I liked too that if I miss a day, than I just pick up and will make sure to try and match days for the future readings.

Hidden Among the Stars by Melanie Dobson

Image
Hidden Among the Stars tells the story of how Max Dornbach helped out some Jewish friends during the time of Hitler's reign of Germany.  He agreed to help hide some valuable items and also helped to hide a Jewish woman.  Unfortunately the German soldiers come and find out about the hidden treasures.
     The story continues in present day when Callie finds an old book that draws her into a story from the past.  This helps to draw her out as well and she soon uncovers information from the past and changes her life as well.   
     Wow, I really enjoyed reading this story of past and present.  I quite enjoy learning about history from fiction.  It gives me an insight and the desire to learn more as this story did.  A great read.

The Reckless (Legacy of the King's Pirates Book 6) by MaryLu Tyndall

A wonderful story full of adventure and hope.   I loved reading the story of Reena and Frederick and how they worked on their differences.  I loved all the places and searching and wonder what it would be like to live a life like they did. I also liked how their faith factored into their decisions.

The Road to Magnolia Glen by Pam Hillman

Image
Quinn finds himself with a big change in plans . He plans to come to Mississippi and make a way on his own, but soon finds himself helping the  Young sisters as they too are on their way to Mississippi as well.  The Young sisters have come over from Ireland planning to start a new life, but soon find that the life that was planned for them is not the life they were actually coming to.  Soon The sisters and Quinn find a new overlapping direction than what was planned.
     I liked how Quinn gave in and took responsibility even though he did not have to and was trying to have a more carefree life.  This became even more relevant when it became apparent what was really going on .  I liked seeing the relationship grow between Quinn and Kiera and the seeing what life was like on the Breeze Hill Plantation.
