Vow of Justice (Blue Justice Book #4) by Lynette Eason

I have really enjoyed getting to know the characters of this series.  I love the way that they work together.  Linc and Allison have to work together to keep her alive.  They each have to get past some differences as they learn to work together.  This book will keep you guessing and trying to decide what will happen next.  A great read.
     I received a copy from the publisher, the review is mine.

Always: A Lost Princesses Prequel Novella by Jody Hedlund

Lance and Felicia both must work at overcoming great odds to save the princesses.  I loved seeing how they had to work together and the obstacles  that they had to face and things things that they had to do for the good of the princesses.  I can't imagine having to do what they did with small children as well.  A great page turner and great for all ages.
     I received a copy of the book to read, the review is my own.

Edge of Truth by Kimberly Rose Johnson

I really enjoyed seeing how Kara and Jeff learned to work together for the task they were given.  They had to go undercover for their jobs at the DEA and it it nothing like they expect. 
     I also liked the faith part of the book.  Kara not only had to rely on her partner, but on God as well to keep her safe and to see the operation through to its end.
      This was a very enjoyable book and I look forward to more in this series.

Claws of Action by Linda Reiley

I really enjoy this series about Lara and her aunt and the shelter they run.  I love the interactions with the cats and how they work at finding good homes for them.  They are trying to expand the program with a reading room, but unfortunately the health inspector wants to shut them down, which leads to more trouble when she is found dead.  It is up to Lara to find out what really happened so that they can keep things moving along.
    I think that a shelter like Lara and her aunt run would be a great place to find a cat.  You would be able to see them as the really are and the reading program the want to implement is a great way to get reluctant readers to read.

A Reluctant Belle by Beth White

I loved reading about Joelle and how she did what was needed to keep her family going.  She was willing to take chances for what she believed in and worked with who she had to so that she could get things done. 
     I found it interesting to see how she learned to work with Schuyler even though she did not want to.  I think I really enjoyed this book as I could related to some of the places mentioned and it seemed like you could really see what was going on.

She Walks in Love by MaryLu Tyndall

I really enjoyed the next book in the Protectors of the Spear.  Christina is doing her best to have the life she wants, but instead is trying to stay safe from those who want to do her harm.  Jarin has set out to find Christina and protect her.  As they go on their journey they have to rely on faith and who to trust.  They also have to protect the Spear and rely on it to protect them as well.
     I liked this story of adventure and seeing how the learned who and what to rely on as they were on their journey.

Doom and Bloom by H.Y. Hanna

Poppy has found herself in another adventure.  She is making a go at her nursery and keeping her animal friends entertained.  She is working at creating a park for a pampered pooch and finds herself caught up in another murder. 
     I really enjoy seeing what Poppy finds herself up to and love the antics of Oren and how he works at getting to his way.

A Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund

I could not go through what Mercy did.  She gave up everything and still kept her sweet helpful nature.  She had people looking down on her just because of where she was born, but did not let that stop her.  She was able to find the best in her circumstances and I loved how it all turned out.
     Mercy finds herself on a bride ship as she is trying to get out of a bad situation.  While on the voyage over, she finds herself helping others, a carry over from her previous life.  She was able to make the long voyage from London to British Columbia more bearable for many on the ship.
      I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one in the series.

First Degree Murder (Lantern Beach P.D. Book 3) by Christy Barritt

Cassidy has taken over as police chief and is hoping that things will settle down. She just wants to concentrate on her new life and just concentrate on the minor things, unfortunately that is not going to happen.
      I have enjoyed getting to see Cassidy in this new series after getting introduced to her earlier.  We get to see her still keeping things under control in Lantern Beach, but also getting to be herself.

Silent Bud Deadly (The English Cottage Garden Mysteries) by H.Y. Hanna

I enjoyed getting to know Poppy better and seeing how she is fairing with her new business.  She still has a lot to learn and soon takes on her first job.  Unfortunately she runs into another mystery as someone is murdered practically in front of her and she finds herself trying to figure out what happened. 
     I enjoy the new characters and always love a cat in a book.  A great read.  I received a copy from the author, the review is mine.

Lady of a Thousand Treasures by Sandra Byrd

Eleanor has a big task ahead of her.  She has been working with her father and uncle evaluating artifacts and working with family collections to decide what to sell, keep, or donate.  When her father dies and her uncle can no longer carry out the daily activities of the business, Eleanor has to do what she can in an era when she cannot do the job alone. 
     Eleanor has to work at making the best decisions to keep her family business running.  She has to make the best decisions for the clients as well as her family and deciding what to do with a long time client's collection may be a make or break decision.  I felt for her as she had to decide what was best all around.
     I received a copy of the book to review, the review is my own.

Taken in Texas by Susan Sleeman

A suspenseful read where Kendall is determined to do her job no matter what the consequences.  She is willing to try everything to find the kidnappers even if it means teaming up with Cord.  A great mystery that will have you guessing and hoping you are right.
