Married by Christmas is a nice story. I have not read other books in this series so have not connected to a lot of the characters. It has drama, action, faith and prayer.
I like Caleb, Rebecca that they are willing to sacrifice to protect Amy, and save each other. Rebecca is so angry with Caleb for something that happened a year ago. She finds him wounded by a gunshot and drags him into the house. Caleb is close to dying but Rebecca fights to save him.
Because Rebecca had Caleb at her cabin with just her and her sister people think she should marry him. For most of the time Caleb was out of it with high fever. Rebecca refuses to marry him but then her sister suffers for it. So they agree to marry in name only.
The setting for this story is Gatlinbury, Tennessee December 1881
Rebecca and Caleb have to deal with forgiveness of each other and themselves. Plus Caleb witnesses a murder and was shot trying to save the marshal. The outlaws are on the lookout for him, while the law is looking for the outlaws.
I love the simple Celebration of Christmas. Homemade gifts or items that are really needed or wanted. The focus on the Savior's birth.
If you have read other Smokey Mountain Matches you will probably see a lot of old friends.

This novella is short and sweet. It has plenty of drama, action and romance for a short story. It is also a clean fast read.
Katie is mad at least the town thinks so. Katie was trapped in her house for three days after a tornado hit and destroyed her house.

I had read Murder in Real Time today and enjoyed it. I love the characters, the mix of characters, mystery, humor and action. Now I am reading the next book Murder comes Ashore.
Patience Price has been downsized from the FBI. So she came home to Chincoteague Island. She plans to open an office and council others. People don't think she will be able to council anyone because they will be seen. So people come up to her and start talking anywhere then leave her money or they pay something for her. It's funny to see where they will pop up.
Adrian Davis is Patience old boyfriend. He is accused of murder the day she came back home. Adrian's mother wants her to help prove him innocent. Adrian is single.
Sebastian is a FBI agent that Patience has had a crush on so she calls him to pick his brain and he comes to stay a couple of days. Sebastian keeps telling her not to someplace alone but she does and gets in trouble.
The day Patience comes home a murder happens and the accused is Adrian. He asks her for help too and says he is innocent. Their are roomers that her apartment is haunted. The way people keep getting in I would not stay alone.

I liked this second book of Aggie Mundeen mystery. It is full of drama, humor and action. The suspense is pretty good. I had no idea who the guilty parties were or there motive. Lots of suspects. It is a clean read.
The three main characters do a lot together Aggie, Meredith and Sam. They decide to go to a dude ranch for a working vacation. No one else knows that Sam is a cop. Aggie starts getting to know the workers on the ranch and they talk to her. Aggie starts noticing a lot of things around the ranch and eavesdrop a lot.
When a expert rider is thrown off her horse and things don't look right Sam decides to stay at the ranch and not let anyone know he is a detective. Aggie sneaks out after things quite to look over the ground and bags different things. Then two others show up to look around too.
I liked that Sam and Aggie worked together in this book after the first lectures. I hope that Aggie tells Sam what she is hiding from them. I am glad they are getting closer slowly. I want to see more of Aggie and Sam work together again.
The setting for this book is Texas hill country on a dude ranch.
I look forward to reading the next book in the Aggie Mundeen Mystery series.

The Colony Cat is the fifth book in the series. Now I have read all 5 and have enjoyed reading them. I enjoy the characters both the human and pets. They are fun to see what they are up too. The mysteries are good and keep you guessing. They are a clean read. There is plenty of drama, danger and mystery in The Colony Cat.
In The Colony Cat taught a lot about wild cats. I have lived with some wild cats before it is interesting about them. Also about the different cat breeds.
The Colony Cat is filled with characters both human and animals that we have met before in other Klepto Cat Mysteries books. There is also a lot of new characters introduced.
Savannah and her friends are trying to help manage wild cat colonies. Savannah, Maggie and Colbi are going to take care of a cat colony at a old wear house. First they plan to observe them and then trap them for medical help and feed them. While they are out there they keep having strangers come and try and run them off. There are rumors it is even haunted.
Of course Rags is still stealing and finding clues about what is going on around Savannah. This time he turns up diamonds.
Savannah is married to Micheal Ivey. They are both vets. Savannah is taken off because she is almost ready to have her baby.
Rags is one of Savannah's cat. He has a talent for helping to solve crimes and for stealing stuff out of purses and pockets of those he comes in contact with.
Maggie is Savannah's aunt. She is into helping cats in a big way. She belongs to a group that is willing to help cats. Her new husband Max owns a cat sanctuary.
Colbi is a newspaper writer and loves cats too. She also writes a cat blog. She belongs to the same group as Savannah and Maggie that helps cats.
If you love cats, cozy mysteries this series you will enjoy. I am more a dog person myself but am enjoying all these cat characters and there personalities. Also learning little things at the same time.

Can you go back home again? Grace Madison is asking that question again. She wanted out of her town of Briar Creek to become a writer. Now her family needs her home. I like Grace. I want to go in and look at the bookstore and her family's home.
Luke Hastings is the one who stayed in Briar Creek and moved on and got married. He is now a principle and a widower. He feels guilt about his wife.
Everyone tries not to talk about Grace & Luke to each other but they keep running into each other. Everyone wants to know what is going on with them.
Grace has two younger sisters. Anna has her own business in town she is a cook. Jane is married and has a cute little girl. Their father had died six months ago. Everyone is having problems with depression. They have to give up the bookstore their father loved.
Luke & Grace have so many issues to work out. I thought it was going on too long but then problems in real life are not easy to solve all at once either. I did want to shake Luke a few times though.
Their is one love scene that I did skip over.
I want to come in Briar Creek and see what is happening next to the Madisons.

This is a fast read, but could have read it a lot faster if I could see through the tears. This is touching story, sometimes funny, sometimes sad. It makes you want to reach out and hug your family. Sometimes we get so busy and forget to slow down spend more time with your family.
Sam and Holly Foster seemed so real to me I had a hard time thinking it was fiction. I liked them. It starts out before they met and how they met. Then James they brought James into their family. Sam & Holly both worked full time and led super busy lives.
The setting for this book was VA, Washington D.C. area
I was impressed that this was first book. It was written as a Christmas present.
I don't think I will at sail boats the same way again. Miracles and prayers do come answered, just sometimes it is not the answer we want, but what is needed. I like Jason F. Wright writing style. He writes characters that we want to see more of. Story is short to the point but filled with wonder and emotional up and downs. I will keep reading his works with a box of tissue handy.

I have heard about rubber band bracelets before but I have never made one or even seen a loom before. I love all the step by step instructions which include the picture of the rubber bands on looms for every step. They also show picture of the finished project.
It also starts right at basic first step and from there to most complicated designs so there is something for anyone to make. It also shows you hints to make it more special along the way. Like adding charms instructions.
There are 13 loom designs which each one comes with scripture on the side. Then also a paragraph or two about the scripture and project. My favorite one is Mathew 5:14-16 Let your light shine. It is bright and cheery.
These all look fun and remind you that God loves you. If you don't want your kids to read the scripture they can still make the bracelet, necklace or earrings in different colors.

This is a complicated plot. I was not sure who did what till the end. I feel kind of lost that I have not read the first two books in the series. It deals with build up to the first World War, traitors, spies, Irish home rule, murders. Their were some twists and turns I did expect but most I was surprised.
The setting was 1913. From England, Germany, Ireland and other countries.
I am not that familiar with world events around that time, so was more lost.
Ursula Marlow is engaged to Lord Wrotham. She is very rich but has to have someone oversee her money till she is older than 30 or married. She wants women to have more freedom and the right to vote. She is bright. Lord Wrotham is her fiancé.
Lord Wrotham is a lawyer. He inherited family land after brother's death and debt to go with it. He is arrested for treason of British government. He makes Ursula break there engagement and announce it in the papers. He won't defend himself to anyone. He does not want Ursula to visit him in prison.
I was never sure where police stood, especially Chief Inspector Harrison. He thought Ursula was innocent and then accused her. They leaked stuff to her.
It had a good suspense, lots of suspects. Lots of drama, some action, history and a clean read.
Parts of it were slow build up.

First off if you have not read the books in order it makes a big difference. I have loved the series. Major dislike of A Dangerous Witch is it is the last one. But if you change your mind we will all be happy to read more. If your a fan of the series you will want to make sure you read the last part of the book.
I love the characters. It is always good to see how they are. I like Moe. The cast is all old friends. The orb is talking again to Lauren. A new witch is coming into power bringing some new troubles with it.
The setting for this book is Witch Central California & realm world.
You don't want to put this down even when the book is done.
This might not be my favorite book of the series, but I really enjoyed devouring it. I will read it again sometime when I will savor it.
If you have not tried this series start with a Modern Witch. It is good clean fantasy series set in California in modern times. It grabs your heart and does not let it go.
Thank you Debora for some favorite books of mine. It is a series that I have read more than twice each.

I would love to visit at this resort. I loved the setting of the resort in Mexico. Barbara wrote a very believable setting with her words. This is a romantic books. It also has some good humor thrown in. It left me smiling after reading.
I also loved the characters. The secondary couple in the book also got to me. I admit to shedding a few tears while reading this.
Larissa Boyd went on her honeymoon by herself when her fiancé jilted her. Larissa spent a lot of time and energy picking her ideal wedding in detail. Larissa is kind and caring. She admits she went overboard in her wedding plans. Larissa is also brave to go by herself to the place she planned to get married.
Carlos Chaves is the manager of La Joya del Mayan. He has spent the past six weeks cleaning up problems left by the last manager and wedding planner. Carlos is a widower with bitter feelings about marriage. He has a hard time stepping into the wedding planners shoes.
Carlos is attracted to Larissa and curious about her coming by herself to the romantic resort. Larissa is drunk when she meets him and draws his concerns about her.
The Unexpected Honeymoon is a great escape between the pages that takes you right into the story.
I would read more books by Barbara Wallace in the future.

I liked this second mystery in the A Roaring Kill series. It can stand alone but you get more out of the characters by reading both books. A lot of the characters are back especially the ones at the end of the first book. It does a good job with the suspense of what all is happening. It has good action, drama and humor mix.
The drama, mystery and action just jumpstart the book. Chrisanth Neeson just witness a murder and kidnapped at gun point and stuffed in a barrel to start the book.
Chrisanth Neeson used to be in witness protection. She thought the danger was over and now its starting again. She is a wedding planner. Lives with her father in a condo on Kauai. Her boyfriend is Jefferson.
Jefferson Cornwall is a author of thrillers and has some hidden part of his past. He comes back to help keep her safe. His mother is an author and she is going to help to.
I like all the teasing between Jeff and his mother. I like how all the main characters realize that someone is in trouble and step right in to help her get out of it and help find the missing person before it turns out to late.
This is a clean book, a good mystery.
I bought this ebook because I have enjoyed reading other books by Sara Barton. It did not let me down.(less)
