Phoebe's Light by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Wow, I loved reading all the different paths that this story took.  From wanting a new take on life to finding out that it wasn't as expected.  I can just imagine Phoebe being one who wanted her own way and then when she got it having to turn to an unwanted gift to get her through her new life at sea.  She has to depend on things that she never expected to make it in her new life.
     I received a copy of the book from the publisher, the review is my own.

Flood Watch by Christy Barritt

I love reading this mystery.  It is interesting to see how Cassidy  juggles her instincts from her former life to trying to stay under the radar in her new one.  She is making a new life while awaiting to testify, but is not succeeding in keeping her past under wraps as she keeps running in to events that cause her to draw on her past skills.  I don't know that I would be any more successful than she was at flying under the radar,

A Passionate Hope by Jill Eileen Smith

This book gives you a taste of life long ago as Hannah and Elkanah try to hold onto hope and faith as their life does not progress as hoped.  When her husband takes another wife, Hannah must hold on to her faith even more that her relationship with her husband will be as it once was.
    I don't know how I would react if I were pushed aside as Hannah was.  She knew that Elkanah loved her and that children were important, but it would be hard to stay nice with the things that were going on in her life

Out of the Ashes by Tracie Peterson and Kimberley Woodhouse

This is a great read that will give you insight into the life after the war, trying to escape and get to life back as normal.  One of the characters who wants adventure, one who just wants to get away from it all, and another how comes into a connection from the past.  This series is a great read that keeps your attention and makes you anticipate what will come next.

Beneath a Prairie Moon by Kim Vogel Sawyer

This was an interesting story about Abigail and  how she had to learn to adapt from a life of luxury to one where she finds herself in conditions that she could never imagine when she has to move and make a living for herself.
    I do not know how I would handle myself in her situation if I had to basically give up all I had and move to an untamed territory and deal with conditions like she had to.
     I received this book from blogging for books, the review is my own.

Kill Shot by Susan Sleeman

This is a book that you will not want to put down.  Rick has has knowledge that he thinks he had time to decide what to do with it, but soon finds out that the clock is ticking.  Olivia too is interested in who and how the killing is occurring and soon teams up Rick so that their knowledge together can hopefully find out who is behind everything before it is too late.
