A Rebel Heart by Beth White

A great read.  I really enjoyed the interactions between Selah and Levi as they worked together to meet both of their needs.  I admire Selah for doing what she felt needed to be done to save her home and how things wound working out for both Selah and Levi.  It was interesting to see how things were during that time period as well.  I love reading historical fiction that has a good mystery, romance, and gives me a taste of the time period.

The Saturday Night Supper Club by Carla Laureano

Rachel has to rebuild her career after some bad reviews cause her to lose her job.  Alex is indirectly responsible for this and offers to help her to restore her reputation by hosting a pop up dinner party.  While getting this party put together, Rachel and Alex have to work together and soon find that there is more to life that first thought.
     I love the idea of the pop up dinner party.  I had not heard of it until now.  It would be an interesting thing to attend, but it would be my luck I would be a picky eater and not like the offerings.  I enjoyed seeing Rachel change her point of view and learn that there is more to life than her career and that even when she felt she had lost everything, she learned there was more to life..

I received a copy of the book from the publisher to read, the review is my own.

Flowers and Foul Play by Amanda Flower

I loved reading this book and seeing how Fiona found anew life with her godfather's home and garden. It was neat seeing Fiona see all that the garden had to offer and solve a mystery at the same time.  Fiona's trip didn't seem to start out any better than what she had left at home, but as she gets to know her new community it all comes together and she finds her self very much liking her  hopefully soon to be new home.

Cold Case by Susan Sleeman

I liked seeing how Eryn had to put aside her  lack of trust and put her trust in Trey to help her solve one of her biggest cases yet.  It was interesting to see how she realized that she could not do everything on her own, especially take care of herself and her daughter and finally let Trey help.  It was a very suspenseful book as you try to figure out what will happen next and how it will all turn out.

The Golden Vial by Thomas Locke

This book is the conclusion in the Legends of the Realm trilogy.  I liked seeing the story line wrapped up and how Lady Shona worked at leading her people even with everything that was against her.  I liked seeing how she had to put her reliance in someone that she did not know and did not know if they could get the job  done, but had to trust that they could.

A Borrowed Dream by Amanda Cabot

A Borrowed Dream tells the story of Catherine and Austin.  Catherine has trouble trusting, but soon learns to as she gets to know Austin.  Austin has secrets of his own, but is just trying to do the best for his daughter.  The two of them have to get past hurts and secrets and soon come to find hope in each other.  A great read.

Falling for You by Becky Wade

I liked seeing how the main characters got past their differences to work together and how by being forced to work together, they had to come to some type of agreement.
     I would like to slow down sometimes and work like Willow was.  It is still work, but it gave her a chance to slow down and regroup.  I found it interesting how Corbin found himself with a second chance and how he handled it.
