My Review Star System:

A rare, solid 5 means I LOVED it or was so impressed that I bring these books up in random conversations.

4.5-4 means great story. Recommended.

I don't post 3 star or below for newer Christian fiction (conflict of interest--I might have to work with the author). But any 3s mean the author wrote a good story, just something about it made it not a favorite.

2 was not that great and never redeemed itself.

1 aggravated me so much or was so poorly done I DNF or if I did finish, I wished I could get my time back.

(Though Rachel's brother is in my novella in The Convenient Bride Collection though you don't see any Salt Flatts characters in it). My next series will move to a new town I named Teaville. It will start off with a novella titled Engaging the Competition that will come out individually (ebook only) or in a 4 in 1 Collection in January. The next novel comes out next Summer and will be called A Heart Most Certain.(less)

“[T]welve year old Libby O'Shea coasted on a homemade swing, toes touching a blinding-blue heaven dolloped with clouds.”
Julie Lessman, A Passion Denied

“The moon hung heavy over the lake like an overripe orange, trickling its golden stream of light across inky depths.”
Julie Lessman, A Passion Denied

“One of the great uses of Twitter and Facebook will be to prove at the Last Day that prayerlessness was not from lack of time.”
John Piper

“It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.”
C.S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory, and Other Addresses

“If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.”
C.S. Lewis, Mere Christianity
