The Last Target by Christy Barritt

This is a great book with many twists and turns.  It tells the story of a woman who finds herself and her son needing protection as they find themselves on a hit list and that protection is provided by a former navy Seal.  I liked how she has the characters interacting and depending on things they normally would not to survive.  It is a great book that will leave you wanting more, which you will be able to find in the author's other Love Inspired books.
I received this book free to review from the author.

The Crimson Cord by Jill Eileen Smith

This is a thought provoking story of Rahab.  It takes elements from the Bible telling her story and weaves them with the back story that the author puts together.  It really gives insight as to what it was like living in that time period and what might have led to her lifestyle.  It is a good story of redemption and I liked how the story from the Bible is there to back up what was written.  I felt like the author put much research into this story so she could tell it in a way that would keep the reader's attention.

The A to Z Guide to Bible Signs and Symbols by Nancy Ryken Taylor and Neil Wilson

This is a handy book to use in preparation for a Bible study or class, or when just enhancing your own knowledge.  It is useful when reading to help with understanding and to enhance what you are reading with additional knowledge.  I liked the explanation and background knowledge that led to the book and knowing the perspective it was written from.  I also liked how it connected things that you might not have otherwise made the connection to.
This is a good book to help supplement your understanding.

50 Women Every Christian Should Know by Michelle DeRusha

This is a great collection of stories that give inspiration and knowledge to the reader.  I liked how the author was able to get the story across in short snippets that allow you to find out about the person and know what they stand for.  It allows you the time to spend a few moments each day reading and enriching your life.
I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to be inspired and enhance their life.

Where Rivers Part by Kellie Coates Gilbert

I enjoyed this book and the stories within.  It was a great story of giving a second chance and how to deal when things don't go exactly how you expected.  It is a story of trust and learning to listen even when you don't want to.  This is a second book in the Texas Gold series, but easy to follow even if it were not part of a series.
I  liked seeing how Dr. Ryan dealt with the thing that didn't go as she expected and how she turned to others who were best equipped to help her out even if she didn't want to.

A Letter to my Cat by Lisa Erspamer

I loved going through this book and seeing all the wonderful cat pictures.  I have a cat myself and could relate to may of the letters that were written.  It was a great book to read in sections as it was several different pictures and letters, so it was something I could read and take care of something else and come back to easily.
Recommended for any pet lover or anyone that just loves a good set of stories.  More from the author can be found at http://www.randomhouse.com/author/187089/lisa-erspamer

At Home in Last Chance by Cathleen Armstong

Last Chance is a town where everyone seems to get a second chance and that is what happens with Kaitlyn and Steven.  Kaitlyn is trying to prove that she has really changed and deserves to have a part in her daughter's live.  Steven has come back and wants to do something different in his life than what everyone expects him to.
     I liked how the issues of trust and understanding were addressed in this book.  I allowed the characters to start believing in themselves and allowed their friends and family to see that they were really making an effort.  This was a great end to a touching series.

Price of Privilege by Jessica Dotta

I really enjoyed the chance to read the third book in the Price of Privilege Trilogy.  This book really enhanced what I had read in the other books, but would be just as great if you hadn't read the others.  I had to work hard not to turn ahead to find out what was coming next as this book was one that really kept you on your toes.  I highly recommend this book, but warn you might want to make sure you have a good enough amount of time to read as you won't want to put it down.
     Julia finally knows what is hers and decided to not let Chance Macy take it away from her.  This proves harder than she wants as scandal breaks loose and gets tired in the courts.  Julia has to work through the deceit and lies to prove what is hers and what is right.
