Hidden Peril


As teenagers, Kristin Dane and her two best friends took a vow to make the world a better place. Twenty years later, she's fulfilling that pledge through her fair trade shop that features products from around the world. All is well until, one by one, people connected to the shop begin dying.

Detective Luke Carter, new to the St. Louis PD, wants to know why. Before he can answer that question, however, the FBI weighs in and Kristin suddenly finds herself in the middle of international intrigue--and in the sights of the ruthless mastermind behind an ingenious and deadly, scheme. Can this cold-blooded killer be stopped before more people die . . . including Kristin?

Three-time RITA Award-winner and "queen of inspirational romantic suspense" (Library Journal) Irene Hannon doesn't disappoint in this edge-of-your-seat thriller that will have readers up late as they rush toward the explosive conclusion.

My thoughts: I loved the vow that Kristin Dane and her two friends took as kids and the different ways they were fulfilling that vow in their adult lives! This was such a suspenseful story, filled with lots of mystery, twists and turns. I love the idea of the shop that Kristin owned and wish that there was an actual one close by, since it would be fun to pop in.
Irene provides another masterfully written story with Hidden Peril.

A Southern Season

JR_SouthernSeason_BLOG


Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for A Southern Season: Four Stories From a Front Porch Swing by Eva Marie Everson, Claire Fullerton, Linda W. Yezak, and Ane Mulligan, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours! Pull up a front porch swing and enjoy learning more about this collection from 4 great authors :)



ABOUT THE BOOK

a southern season Title: A Southern Season: Four Stories From a Front Porch Swing

Authors: Eva Marie Everson, Claire Fullerton, Linda W. Yezak, Ane Mulligan 

Publisher: Firefly Southern Fiction 

Release Date: November 1, 2018 

Genre: Inspirational Southern/Women's Fiction

Four seasons. 



Four stories. Each one set in the enchanting world of the South. These are the kinds of stories your grandmother told you from a front porch swing.

 



Ice Melts in Spring by Linda W. Yezak

When Kerry Graham's boss forces her to return to the Gulf of Mexico where her husband drowned years ago, she feels only spring's chill and not the warmth of the Texas sun. Can the joy of a reclusive author and the compassion of a shrimp-boat preacher thaw Kerry's frigid heart?

 



Lillie Beth in Summer by Eva Marie Everson

With the untimely death of his wife, Dr. James Gillespie believes God has abandoned him. He also believes he's never met anyone like the young widow Lillie Beth, whose beloved Granny lies dying at home, and who sees a God who sweeps hope through a farmhouse window. Can a young woman whose husband died in Vietnam restore a faith that is all but dead.

 



Through an Autumn Window by Claire Fullerton

Because her larger than life mother Daphne Goodwyn is dead, forty-year-old Cate returns to Memphis with one thought in mind: something always goes wrong at a Southern funeral. But surrounded by the well-mannered society that raised her, the nostalgic rites of a three-day, autumn mourning bring the unexpected gift of the end of sibling rivalry.

 



A Magnolia Blooms in Winter by Ane Mulligan

With Broadway stardom within her reach, Morgan James returns home in winter to help an old friend. Maybe it s just nostalgia, but when she sees him again, an old flame rekindles. When she's called back to NYC to take the lead in a new musical, will fame be worth losing the man she loves?

 

My review: I love that this collection of novella's gives the reader a glimpse of the four seasons in the South. Such a fun read! The stories deal with different seasons in life too, so some of them where not at all what I expected. I liked that the romance wasn't the main focus of the stories, but that they were woven together in a way that made them feel true to life. I enjoy that in a story.
This is a wonderful collection of stories to pick up!

The Mark of the Raven


Lady Selene is the heir to the Great House of Ravenwood and the secret family gift of dreamwalking. As a dreamwalker, she can enter a person's dreams and manipulate their greatest fears or desires. For the last hundred years, the Ravenwood women have used their gift of dreaming for hire to gather information or to assassinate.

As she discovers her family's dark secret, Selene is torn between upholding her family's legacy--a legacy that supports her people--or seeking the true reason behind her family's gift.

Her dilemma comes to a head when she is tasked with assassinating the one man who can bring peace to the nations, but who will also bring about the downfall of her own house.

One path holds glory and power, and will solidify her position as Lady of Ravenwood. The other path holds shame and execution. Which will she choose? And is she willing to pay the price for the path chosen?

My thoughts: When I first started this story, I wasn't so sure what I thought about it. That quickly changed! I wound up loving it! Morgan is an incredible writer, from her world building to her character development. I loathed Selene at first, but grew to like her by the end and can't wait to see where the story goes in the next book. I only wish that it were already out, since there were some surprising plot twists at the end. This book is a must!
If you are interested in ordering the book, there will be a fun read along here with writers Jill Williamson and Gillian Bronte Adams.

Take ten: favorite "scary" stories

I had to put scary in parenthesis like that, since you all are going to laugh a bit at my version of scary stories, since I don't do the horror genre. So, without further adieu, here is my list.;) (as usual, if you are interested in learning more about the book, click the picture to go to the Amazon page. This post contains affiliate links. Thanks for supporting my bookish habit!)


1. The House on Foster Hill

The cover of this one just screams creepy, right? And it is. Two mysteries, both surrounding the same house. It's an incredible story!

2. The Reckoning of Gossamer Pond

Another suspenseful story that kept me on pins and needles! I can't wait for this author's next story to come out.

3. Thornewicke

Magic and mayhem, this one in delightful!

4. Gift Snatcher

All I have to say about this one is Jack the Ripper. That alone makes it scary (but in the best way possible!).

5. The Screwtape Letters


6. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire


7. Vendetta


8. Stratagem


9. Vanishing Point


10. Darkwater Secrets

When Your Kid is Hurting


Children today live in an unpredictable, disruptive, and often violent world. Many of them live in two different homes with different sets of expectations. They face bullying at school and online. They hear news of school shootings, and racially or religiously motivated violence. They may have lost a friend or a loved one.

As parents, the impulse to protect our children is strong, but that very protection can end up handicapping them for life. Rather than seek to save them from the hard things, parents must teach their kids how to cope with and rise above their problems. In one of his most important books to date, internationally known psychologist and bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman shows parents how to

- be good listeners
- tell the truth, even when it's difficult
- find balance between being protective and being overprotective
- approach hurt and injustice as a learning experience rather than fostering a victim mentality
- and much more

Whether your child is dealing with a difficult family situation, bullies, the loss of friends, the death of a loved one, discrimination, abuse, a teen pregnancy, or even just trying to make sense of what they see in the news, this compassionate and practical book will help parents equip them to process, learn from, and rise above their situation.

My thoughts: As a parent, I really don't like to see my children hurting, and would love to shield them from being hurt. And yet, I know that we live in a fallen world and that having your feelings hurt by friends or dealing with grief is part of the growing process. I love that this book doesn't leave parents to navigate helping children through hurt alone. I really appreciate the Q and A section, where parents asked Dr. Leman's advise on how to handle specific situations. This book does a wonderful job of providing help for working though failures, grief, fears, and more. I highly recommend this book for all parents/guardians!

Lies Men Believe


“If there ever was such a thing as a ‘shortcut’ to the wisdom of the ages, you’re holding it in your hands. This is the kind of wisdom that can only be earned over a lifetime of trial and error, trial and error, and, finally, trial and success.”
-Patrick Morley
Author, The Man in the Mirror
“In 2001, I wrote a book called Lies Women Believe. Since then this message has reached millions of women and been translated into dozens of languages. But I’ve often been asked about a ‘male counterpart’ to the book. When God brought Robert into my life in 2015, I soon realized he was the ideal choice to pen this message for men. You’ll find that reading Lies Men Believe, with its warm, relatable style, is like having a conversation with a good friend. Be prepared, in the process, to grapple with some tough issues. And be prepared to experience the liberating power of the Truth—in your own life, and in the lives of those you influence.”
-Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth
Revive Our Hearts Teacher & Host;
Lies Books Series Editor
You are being hunted.
Like a seasoned angler, our enemy opens his tackle box and selects the lure most likely to attract his intended prey—usually the one you and I are least likely to consider harmful. Each lie we bite on causes us to feel pain, lose or injure relationships, and miss out on the abundant life that God wants us to have. Lies Men Believe exposes the lies that men most commonly believe, and shows you how to combat those lies with the truth.
Lies like:
Pleasure and Entertainment Can Truly Satisfy Me
If I Mean Well, That’s Good Enough
If I Discipline My Children, They’ll Rebel.
I’m Measured by How I Compare with Other Men.
Find out how lies are holding you back from freedom, joy, and intimacy with God and others. Discover the power of the truth. Because once you fully embrace the truth, nothing is ever the same.

My thoughts: This book is a wonderful addition to any man's bookshelf! I love how Robert tackles difficult issues that are so prevalent in todays society. From God to family, money and work to marriage and sexuality. The book is easy to read through, filled with personal stories that drive home the points and make it easy to recall and apply the information. I highly recommend this title!

A Fever a Flight, and a Fight for the World


A Fever, a Flight, and a Fight for the World is a compelling African adventure story that will enthrall eight- to fourteen-year-old youth who love adventure and learning about faraway places. In the exciting fourth and final book in the Rwendigo Tales Series, readers will be inspired by ordinary people who make the extraordinary choice to stand against great evil. Written by J. A. Myhre, a doctor living and working in East Africa, this adventure story teaches readers of all ages important truths about justice, overcoming evil, and the courage to make a difference.
In A Fever, a Flight, and a Fight for the World, A doctor volunteering in a village plagued by a mysterious virus wakes up on a deserted island injured, sick, and near death—with no memory of how he got there. As Dr. Mujuni slowly regains his memory, he pieces together the horrific reality of what happened to the community and learns just how far the government-backed officials will go to silence all knowledge of the epidemic. As a young girl named Nyakato, the only other survivor, nurses him back to health, Dr. Mujuni must devise a plan to make their way back to the mainland, but what they discover on their journey is even more dangerous than they could ever imagine.
Through a series of perils and hazards, Mujuni and Nyakato must fight for more than their own lives, learning the true cost of overcoming evil and greed. Through their adventures, readers will find hope in the midst of great loss, triumph and courage in the midst of death and injustice, and love in the midst of darkness.

My thoughts: While I haven't had the chance to read the whole series yet (I missed some of the books in between this one and the first one), I found that they were interesting and well written. Geared towards middle school, these books are riveting, filled with interesting characters and important life lessons. I look forward to my daughter being old enough to read it!

Winning the Battle


The most important battle you face is the battle for your mind, will, and emotions. Why? Because it greatly determines how much of God and his kingdom you will experience while you're on earth. The thoughts we entertain, the words we speak, and the choices we make shape and influence not only our reality, but all of creation.

The enemy loves to highlight our temporary challenges; poke at our feelings and stir up fear, frustration, doubt, and self-pity; and get us mired in murmuring and complaining.
Yet the Bible shows us that all of heaven is available to us right now.

In these pages you will discover the secret of Colossians: the incredible power of Christ in you. When you learn how to access his ever-present power and goodness, feelings and fears will no longer control you. You
will go from being overwhelmed to being an overcomer.

Heaven is only a decision away. How will you choose?

My thoughts: This book is an excellent resource to pick up, since it drives home the reminder of the spiritual battle we often forget. I love how grounded in scripture this book is! It's a wonderful reminder to stay vigilant in the battle for your mind, will, and emotions. I highly recommend it!
I received this book from Chosen. This is my honest review.

Excerpt from the book:
Rachel Streetman strolled past the high-dollar paintings and plush furniture to the window. Located on the thirty-eighth floor in a downtown Atlanta high-rise, her father’s office offered a spectacular view. She gazed down Peachtree Street toward the renowned Fox Theater. A smile curled her lips as she imagined standing center stage ready to entertain an adoring audience. Her mind drifted back to her senior year in college when she played Peggy Sawyer in 42nd Street. The accolades fellow students showered on her remained as the last trace of a lifelong dream to act.
Greer Streetman breezed into the room, stood behind his daughter, and put his hands on her shoulders. “It's a great view from up here with the rest of the world at our feet.”
Her mental image vanished, along with her smile.
“In your new position I expect you to play a major role in expanding my business.”
While her mind urged her to tell him it wasn’t the role she was born to play, her heart compelled her to swallow the comment. She spun around and looked up into her father's brown eyes. “I understand.”

The Case for Christ Daily Moment of Truth


Why do we believe what we believe? The Case for Christ Daily Moment of Truth, by leading apologists for Christianity Lee Strobel and Mark Mittelberg, offers fact-based, intelligent devotions to build a foundational faith. These 180 insightful writings will strengthen your spiritual knowledge and touch your heart with life-changing truth.
Each devotion is based on a scientific, historical, or biblical fact that will bolster your confidence in Christ. You will be inspired, encouraged, and equipped. A reflection at the end of each entry allows you to consider this new knowledge and how to put it into action.
In these thoughtful devotions Strobel and Mittelberg articulate the reasons why Christians believe what they believe. Combining the authors' expertise in apologetics with scriptural application for daily living, this devotional will leave you deeply encouraged and well informed. Topics range from scientific discoveries to theological explanations, and each devotion is followed by a brief reflection, prayer, and thought to meditate on and talk about.
You'll emerge with a deeper understanding of your beliefs. In the process, you’ll find your love of truth—and your passion to share it—growing each day.

My thoughts: I loved the original book that this devotional is based on, so I was thrilled to get a hold of this book and see how if worked. I love it! Each day has thoughts to help us focus on why we believe what we believe. I enjoyed reading the personal stories and stories from friends of Lee's. This book is an excellent way to start the day! (or end it, if you prefer)

Dare to Dream Again


Will love bloom just as sweet the second time around?

Losing her husband has taught Gloria more than anything else how to rely on God.

His grace alone gave her the strength to raise her children -- a sweet angel with cerebral palsy as well as a daughter who wants nothing more than to serve God as a missionary on foreign soil.

Gloria couldn’t be prouder of her girls, but a future without them both by her side sounds empty and hollow.

When God thrusts a godly man like Derek into her path, Gloria isn't sure she’s ready to jump headfirst into a relationship.

But maybe God’s giving her the chance for a happily ever after … a second time around.

My thoughts: This novella was both sweet and deep as it dealt with some difficult subjects. Gloria misses her husband and still talks to him to process. Being a single mother is difficult, but especially when you throw disabilities into the mix. The relationship between Gloria and her two daughters is a beautiful one.
I must warn readers that this is a novella and sets the stage for the next book in the series, where the story is continued through the eyes of Susannah (one of the daughters). I look forward to reading the whole series!

When You Look at Me Review and Giveaway

When you look at me


Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for When You Look at Me by Pepper Basham, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours.



ABOUT THE BOOK

when you look at me front Title: When You Look at Me

(Pleasant Gap Romance #2)

Author:
Pepper Basham

Publisher:
Woven Words Publications

Release Date:
October 25, 2018

Genre:
Inspirational Contemporary Romance




An unexpected mother-to-be

A romance-leery composer

And a forgotten melody from the past that holds the keys to their futures



When Julia Jenkins' great aunt dies and leaves her a Victorian mansion with decades of secrets, Julia never expects to unearth a World War 2 espionage mystery. Struggling with her own past since an assault left her pregnant, her future as a solo parent leaves her dreams uncertain. The inheritance from her great aunt gives Julia the ability to take a step back into her future, but also sends her into the discovery of a love story she’d never anticipated. As she goes through her aunt's treasured possessions, Julia uncovers some oddly written piano music with a musical code she can’t decipher on her own. Not to worry, introverted Englishman and composer, Henry Wright, is thrust on the scene by a pair of homespun matchmakers who know the ‘right’ man for Julia’s wounded heart.



Henry arrives in Pleasant Gap with the task of composing the soundtrack for his best mate’s newest film. The Jenkins’ family’s southern welcome and gregarious personalities set his reticent nature on edge, but he’s inexplicably drawn to his gentle and music-loving hostess, Julia. Uncertain how to build a friendship with the wounded woman, and rather hopeless in communicating well through words, the bond of music becomes a bridge between her uncertainty and his awkwardness.



But her broken past and his families’ expectations build a wall much greater than the cultures that separate them. As they work together to solve a musical mystery from the grave, will an unlikely romance from the past inspire their hearts to trust in a God who’s written the perfect melody for their lives?

 



My thoughts: I loved When You Look at Me! I could relate to the music aspect of the story, since my husband and I are both music teachers, and I loved how Henry attaches different songs to his experiences. I also loved getting to know Henry and Julia as they form their unlikely friendship through music and overcome difficulties, dealing with some heavy topics. (Be warned, there are some triggers, though Pepper handles tough subjects well) The taste of Appalachian culture and WWII mystery round out the story nicely. I adored this story and can't wait to read more about their story as the series continues!
