I absolutely love Wanda Brunstetter and her work. I was so excited to get the chance to read and review this book, her first in the Amish Cooking Classseries. Setting down to read it, I knew I would be in for fun, but just how much, I had no idea! This book is filled with laughter, romance, faith, hope, inspiration and lots of gut cooking!
Ms. Brunstetter once again creates a novel filled with heart warming characters, plot lines that keep you hooked and messages woven that will leave you thinking and reflecting long after the book is closed. All the characters within this novel face a different challenge in their lives, but through faith and coming together to cook, Ms. Brunstetter sends us on a ride that leaves us smiling at these characters that have come to try and learn to cook.
This is beyond a 5 star book. It's the first of the series, and I'm already wishing I had book 2, The Blessing. If you are looking for a fast paced, inspirational book about the simple life, look no further than this fabulous book. As a bonus, you'll get some great recipes from the teacher in the book! Yum! Bravo, once again, Ms. Brunstetter. Bravo.

This was an enjoyable read! I'm very pleased to have had the chance to read this new book by a very talented author. From start to finish of this well written novel, I was hooked. Every page turn brought something new and captivating to the story and I loved that.
I loved Willow. I could see a lot of myself in her. She's a sweet character and was created perfectly for her role in the story. And the fact that she's got a "crush" on her sister's boyfriend??? Loved that!!!! Sam's character was a bit complex and I loved everything about him. His protectiveness over Willow, his protectiveness of the other characters in the story, really made me fall hard for him.
This is definitely a book worth 4 stars that I will have on my keeper shelf for a long time to come. I'll be recommending it to all my book loving friends that love a book filled with twists, humor and characters that steal your heart. While this was book 2 in a series, the events and characters were well written and didn't leave me confused and wondering what happened. It's easily read as a stand alone. Well done, Ms. Warren!

As an Amish fiction lover, I couldn't wait to read this anthology! These 4 authors are absolutely amazing and I have been a fan of their work for manyAs an Amish fiction lover, I couldn't wait to read this anthology! These 4 authors are absolutely amazing and I have been a fan of their work for many years. These four stories are beautifully written and so full of wonderful characters and messages. Each page turn brought more inspiration and by the end of the book, I was sitting there reflecting, thinking about my own life and the simple things we tend to take for granted.
I loved all four stories, but Beth Wiseman's story, A Cup Half Full, really stuck with me. Sarah's disability and her doubts and fears and having trouble accepting God's will really is something I've dealt with. Beth Wiseman's attention to Amish simplicity during trying times and weaving God's understanding grace into the story really was a wonderful experience.
This book is worthy of 5 stars and highest recommendations. If you love wonderfully written stories, faith inspired plot lines and authors who love their readers, then this is a book just for you. I can't wait for another beautifully written anthology by highly talented authors!

As a long time fan of both Amish fiction and Ms. Fisher's, I was excited to jump on this book. I must say that I am quite pleased that I did! Pennsylvania, Amish, and history, this book is one of Ms. Fisher's finest pieces of work. I loved every minute of this story. This particular book is a little different than most Amish romances that I read, in that it's more of the Amish settling in America.
The characters that fill the pages of this book are wonderful. Anna, Bairn, Felix, Jacob.....all are beautifully chiseled and complex with emotions, faith and struggles. I felt like I had come home and settled into America right alongside these wonderful characters!
Ms. Fisher's ability to create a story, even a second story in a series, and not confuse the reader, is incredible. Her stories, like this one, are filled with God's unending love, perseverance, romance and laughs. She adds a rollercoaster ride to the mix and keeps the readers hooked long in to the night as they have to turn each page to find out the next part of the story.
Wowser! Adult fairy tale retelling at it's finest! This darker version of Beauty And The Beast was a wonderful read. From start to finish, Ms. Demete
Wowser! Adult fairy tale retelling at it's finest! This darker version of Beauty And The Beast was a wonderful read. From start to finish, Ms. Demeter kept me hooked on the characters and the twists and turns of the story.
I instantly fell in love with Adam and Isabelle's characters. Adam was emotionally, and physically, scarred and the turmoil that was in his heart became mine. His emotions and pain were felt deep within me. I felt Isabelle's inner struggles and her wants and needs as my own. The passion and sparks that flew between them was absolutely breath taking and I loved every minute of it.
This 4 star read was one that I was thinking about long after I finished the book. Each page, each character, each emotion was embedded in my heart forever and Ms. Demeter quickly became a new-to-me author that I will forever enjoy. This is an amazing retelling of my childhood favorite and I am excited for the next retelling in the series.

This is the first book by her that I've read and it certainly won't be my last. Her characters are chiseled perfectly for their roles in the story and her story line is captivating. I felt myself being pulled into the heart of the plot and was held a happy prisoner to the very end. If you love a story that is filled with passion, page turning story lines, some rollercoaster emotions, and characters that steal your breath away, then The Dove is sure to be a hit with you! Highly recommended!...more

When I found out that Molly was releasing a new book this month, I had to jump on that band wagon. I mean, it's Molly McAdams. When I sat down to review this book, I went in with an open mind that anything could happen with this book. I didn't know what would happen, I didn't even read the blurb on this one. I just went in almost blind and I was so glad that I did! The anticipation with each page turn was incredible.
The characters in this story will gut you. You will feel anger. You will feel happiness. You will feel saddened. You will want to fuss at Molly McAdams. You will want to cherish the her and the book forever. That's how emotional this book is. The theme of the story is not one you will take lightly, but you have to push on and find out what happens next. The twist of the story will hit you like a truck and leave you with your mouth on the floor and your thoughts in a whirlwind. The ending of the book will leave you wanting more. The ending of the book will leave you in a trance. The ending of the book will have you thinking deep thoughts and wondering how Molly can top this one.
At least all that happened to me. It was an experience I won't soon forget. It leaves me debating on if I love this story more or less than Taking Chances. It's definitely a hard to decision to make. I think, in the end, I have to say that this book is so much more than what Taking Chances was and I love it so much more in a whole different way, while Taking Chances will still be a top favorite for me. This is a book that a 5 star review will not do it justice. This is a book that deserves more than simple words can say. Molly McAdams, you have created a novel that is beyond incredible. You have created a book that left this fan (and hopefully new fans too!) speechless. You did a magnificent job on this one and I am anxiously awaiting the release of the next book in the series!

From the firstIf you love laughing out loud while reading a book by a superbly talented author, then look no further than Sandra Marton's The F-Word. From the first page, I was captivated and held until the end. Each page turn had me laughing out loud and looking forward to the next part of the story.
Bailey Abram and Matthew O'Malley's characters were perfectly chiseled for their roles. I loved Matthew's character. He was super cute and hilarious! And, Bailey, bless her. She was perfectly flawed. She reminded me so much of myself. When Matthew and Bailey were interacting, it was instant sizzle! Loved them.
I definitely recommend this book with highest of 4 stars! From start to finish, you'll laugh, you'll want more, you'll wish you were Bailey. Ms. Marton knew just what to through her readers to keep them hooked and wanting more. I can't wait for another book just like this one! Bravo, Ms. Marton! ...more

So, I jumAnother fabulous hit from the awesome author, Liz Crowe. I've been a fan of hers since I first read her Stewart Realty series way back when. So, I jumped on the chance to read this one. And, as always, she kept me hooked, in love with the characters and turning the pages long into the night.
Evelyn and Austin's characters are wonderfully created for the story. I fell in love with both of them instantly, though, I tended to favor Austin over Evelyn throughout. Evelyn's character, while she seemed a little "off" at first, quickly became someone I wanted to cheer on. Austin's character, well, let's just say I wish he was real. Deliciously yummy! The passion that sparked between them was incredible and I loved watching it all unfold.
Ms. Crowe has a passion for brewing and it shows in her stories. When her stories describes the scents, the tastes and the looks of the breweries it makes me feel like I'm right there in the center of it all. I definitely recommend that you tap into your brewery side and pick up a copy of this book now. You will be taken on a whirl wind rollercoaster of hot fun! I can't wait to see what Ms. Crowe has in store for us next! Well done on this amazing 5 star read!

We step forward at the same time, and he presses his rough hand to my cheek. “I don’t know what kind of pussies you went out with before, but I wanted to fucking claim you in there.”
He slides a hand around my waist, tugging our bodies together. I feel every hard inch of him, and he’s got me so hot I’m sure we’re going to combust.
“I’ve spent almost nine years hiding who I am, and I’m not willing to do it anymore,” he says through clenched teeth. “Not here, where I came to start over. Where I came to live on my terms without the goddamn military hanging over my head.”
“I have no interest in hiding,” I assure him.
“You’re sure? Because I really want to kiss you right now, and I don’t care who sees us.”
I respond by pulling his mouth to mine, my break from men long forgotten. We stumble backward, crashing into the railing, fighting for dominance as we did yesterday morning. The passion between us has a life of its own. My hands claw over his ass, up his back. I want to strip him down and take all of him. I want to discover why he’s so rough and learn what about those shadows that are lurking behind his gorgeous eyes. Instead I take, and give, and take more of the angry kisses. When we finally tear our mouths apart, my body’s still reeling, and we both curse under our breaths.
“Okay?” he pants out.
I nod, knowing if I open my mouth,
I want to fuck you
, is going to come out.
Melissa Foster has done it again! She has hit the proverbial nail on the head with this amazing M/M novel! I love hot, sexy men in my stories and when I get a great M/M story, it's a double whammy for me! So, my heart was completely satisfied with Tristan and Alex. They stole my heart and didn't let go. Ms. Foster added depth and passion to a story that will leave you breathless. In a world where it's hard to be accepted when you're gay, these amazing men truly prevailed! The sparks, the emotion, the sizzling scens will have you wanting more of Ms. Foster's amazing talented work. I can't give this book anything less than 5 stars! Well done, Ms. Foster!

Jamie McGuire's talent as shined once more! Her books are connected, yet each once brings something uniquely different to the table and you can't help but fall in love each and every time. She's superb.
I loved Travis and Trent's stories but reading Thomas' story really blew me away. Every page turn brought me closer to his heart, seeing what made it beat, what made him hurt. Being devoted to your job can make life difficult at times, but Thomas, well, he was created perfectly flaw-filled and I fell head over heels in love with the Agent.
Liis. What can I say about her other than that I wanted to smack her upside the head on more than one occasion! She was head-strong when it came to her past, present and future and what she wanted. Watching her with Thomas, well the sparks definitely jumped off the page!
With characters from past, present and future in this book, Ms. McGuire keeps the readers passionately hooked and on the edge of their seats waiting to see what the characters do next in this story of letting go and accepting fate. A little humor, a lotta fun, and tons of passion flying high among the characters, this amazing 4 star read belongs on all bookshelves! I can't wait to see what she has in store for the twins, Taylor and Tyler! Bravo, Ms. McGuire. You are forever on my shelves!

So, when I saw this book, I jumped on the chance to review it. However, I was sadly disappointed in the this particular book. The story line fell flat for me. The characters didn't grip me and hook me like I was hoping they would. I tried many, many times to review this book but sadly, again, I could not finish it all. However, that being said, I still encourage everyone to read this book. Just because it wasn't for me, does not mean that you will not enjoy it or find a message within for you! ...more
