The Return by Suzanne Woods Fisher

A wonderful read that gives great insight into the time period and what it was like to live during this time dealing with the harshness of living conditions, paired with the fear of the Indians.  Betsy gets a very new perspective on things when she is taken captive during a raid.  She is shown a different type of faith and love and turns more to God.

Chasing Secrets (Elite Guardians Book #4) by Lynette Eason

I have really enjoyed this series about a group of bodyguards and how they do all they can to protect those in their charge.  I like how they go the extra mile even when their own lives wind up in danger.  The danger that Haley finds herself in is tied to an old case, but even so the danger is real and relevant.  The detective in charge, Steven steps in to help protect Haley and her client.
     I enjoyed seeing peeks of the past as they worked together to find out who was behind everything and persevered throughout all that was thrown at them.  A real page turner.

Fault Lines by Thomas Locke

A thriller that will keep you reading.  Fault Lines is a book that will leave you rethinking how things are and looking at things with a new light.  Charlie thinks that he knows what is going on, but soon finds himself questioning many things.  He has to look twice at everything to make sure all is as it seems.

Witch Chocolate Bites (BEWITCHED BY CHOCOLATE Mysteries ~ Book 4) by HY Hanna

A fun read that is quite enjoyable.  Caitlyn is still trying to figure out this entire witch thing and has to pair it with helping her uncle out of trouble and and a new love interest.  I really enjoy seeing how she juggles everything and the seeing what her cat Nibs is up to as well.  It is fun seeing how she deals when things don't quite go as planned and of course there is all the mentions of yummy chocolate as well.

Gathering the Threads: A Novel (The Amish of Summer Grove) by Cindy Woodsmall

I really enjoy reading the books that give me insight into a different world.  Ariana is back where she grew up, but has a bit of conflict in her old and new ways.  I cannot imagine what it would be like to go from living the way I live to try to live Old Order Amish especially like Ariana had to do.  She had to learn an entirely new way to do thing and with interacting with her "new" family.  Also Skyler is trying to fit in and keep things together with her new family, and soon all is not as good as she wants it.
    I really like it how the characters in this book have to learn to work together, depend on others, and trust their faith to hold things together.  This is the third and final book in The Amish of Summer Grove series.  It is better to have read the other two books, but not necessary.

The Matchmaker's Match (Love in the Cascades Book 4) by Kimberly Rose Johnson

I really loved reading this book and the way that the characters just seemed to come together.  They were able to work out their fears with each other with no pressure and would up with something more than they expected.  They were able to take their friendship and make it into a great match, all the while getting to know each other and themselves better.

Dressed to Confess by Diane Vallerie

I would very much like to visit Proper City, Nevada where dressing up is the norm for the town festivals.  I think that the costumes that Margo helps to provide would really lend to the small town atmosphere, and it would make for a great visit, except for the murder.   I really enjoy the characters and think that running across them in real life would make a trip very memorable.  I liked trying to figure out what would happen next and what Margo would find out next.  Sometimes I beat her to figuring something out and quite often I was wrong with what I guessed.  A great read.

Maggie Bright by Tracy Groot

This book tells the story of the Maggie Bright a sailing vessel and the secrets it harbors.  When the boat is called into action in WWII, Claire knows that it will do what is necessary, even if the American piloting it, isn't fully committed.
     I really enjoyed this book and its insight into events of WWII.  I was unaware of many of the events and the author has done a good job of portraying them in a way that makes it interesting and not like reading a history book.   I knew that due to production timing that many civilian vehicles were "drafted"into the war effort and the story behind the Maggie Bright made it even more interesting.
