I loved this book! I could barely put it down. I've read almost every book in the series, and this may be one of my favorites. Though I missed some of my favorite characters, Miss Julia is such a delight that I sped right through this and was sorry w ...more

Second Chances by Sarah Price

Maybe more like 3.5 stars. Overall, I enjoyed this Amish retelling of Persuasion, but it was a bit slow in parts. I liked the main characters and the way Price echoes the original story rather than following it exactly. A solid Christian romance espe ...more

Some of this I'd read on Warren's MBT blog, but it was good to have it all in one book, and to read it all through. I liked the format of fictionalized meetings with a new writer and the quick tips and summaries throughout. I know I'll be referencing ...more

I really liked this Amish retelling of Austen's Emma. The Amish setting/world seemed a natural fit for the storyline from the 19th century. (The storyline, general themes, and some of the names are all that are similar to Austen but since I don't exp ...more

Another fast, fun read from Valerie Comer! I really like how she makes each of her characters distinctive. The setting in Sweet Seranade was very well-done too, even more than usual for Comer (whose settings are usually well-done as is).

I really liked this novella. As a single parent, I can relate to the challenges Ian and Kelly face and appreciate the way Comer portrays their relationships with their girls. A sweet, fast read.
