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

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.


Dead Drift by Dani Pettrey

Book four in the Chesapeake Valor series starts off running and stays that way till the end.  Luke Gallagher is finally back with his friends and family, but not as a happy reunion, but to stop a terrorist.  I liked seeing how Luke worked as getting back to a "normal" life, while at the same time having to do all he can to keep himself and Kate alive. 
      I have really enjoyed this series and seeing the characters evolve.  It will be hard leaving them behind, but look forward to seeing what comes next.

Justice Betrayed by Patricia Bradley

I have enjoyed this series set in Memphis as I can can picture many of the places that they wind up.  I think it would be great to finally solve a cold case, but would hate to have the case hanging over me as it waits to be solved and would hate it even more to realize that someone was still out there and was still killing.  Rachel soon finds out that there is more to her mother's death as she meets up with an Elvis impersonator.   She soon finds herself looking into it again as another murder occurs and she has to work together with someone from her past before anything happens again.

A souffle of Suspicion by Daryl Wood Gerber

A good mystery mixed in with good food makes for a great book.  I enjoyed reading the second book in the French Bistro series.  Mimi has gone back home and opened her own Bistro and it is starting to do well until a dead body turns up in the kitchen.   Mimi realizes that in order to restore order to her business and to continue making a name for her business during the local festival, she must figure out who the real killer is.   A great read.

Minding the Light by Suzanne Woods Fisher

An enjoyable story of change, love, and acceptance.  When Captain Macy gets back home he finds things very different than when he left and has a hard time accepting it.  I too would have a problem if I came back to find everything different, but would soon have to move on.  Captain Macy tries to act like he isn't bothered by everything, but Daphne sees through him and soon sees the man beyond the surface.  She soon must make a decision that will change things very long term.

A Daring Venture by Elizabeth Camden

Rosalind is a real pioneer.  I admire how she has a job and passion that is not normally associated with women, but have noticed this theme in many of Camden's books.  She is willing to put what she knows to good use, no matter what. 
     Nicholas is not too happy to have to work with Rosalind, but soon finds himself listening to what she has to say even if he is still a bit weary of her techniques.
     I really liked seeing their relationship grow and how they learned that even if they did not always agree, that listening to one another did have merit.
