Blind Trust by Sandra Orchard

This story is the second one in the Port Asher Secrets series, but you don't have to have read the first one to enjoy the second one.  Kate Adams seems to find herself in situations were she has to trust others and turn to her faith in God.  I like how she works at getting herself out of situations and accepting help in times of need.  Her relationships are developing in this story as she finds herself growing closer to and working with Tom Parker.  I also love learning new things within the context of a story.
I received this book free from the publisher to review.

Here is Where by Andrew Carroll

I enjoy finding the out of way spot when I go on trips that has a treasure tucked away , or listening to a guide tell you some bit of history that I didn't know when I go on a tour and this book does just that.  After reading this book, it makes me want to visit some of the places and look for other hidden gems.  I liked not only finding out where the ties to history were located, but the story behind it as well.  This is one book that I will pull out again when traveling to add to my travel plans.  This is the type of book that contains the stories I liked hearing from my history teachers and wish they had been able to share more of.

A Place in His Heart by Rebecca DeMarino

I enjoy reading books that have a historical background and give me a chance to learn some history within the context of a good story.  This book gave insight on crossing over to America and what it was like to live during this time.  Many people during this time married for convenience or to help them to survive after the loss of a loved one.  Barnabas and Mary marry for this reason but as the book develops, we get to see how their relationship develops as well.  I liked seeing how the characters evolve and hope to see some of them again in the upcoming books of this series.

A Woman of Fortune by Kellie Coates Gilbert

I enjoyed getting the chance to read this book to find out how one handles going from seeming having it all to a lot less.  Claire has to work to make things right after having her world thrown apart.  I like seeing how strong she is to hold things together while facing her trials.  She gives a hope to look forward to.
