Mistletoe, Malice and Murder: A Clean Traditional Detective Mystery (Smiley and McBlythe Myster Series Book 9) By Bruce Hammack

This was another nice addition to this clean series of mysteries.  The author has a talent of weaving the details together to lead to a logical conclusion and its amazing how he plots out the story so well with well organized detail.  I enjoyed the plot of the two families involved and how Heather and Steve worked through all the  murder details and all the adventure and mysterious happenings.  I am sure you will enjoy this new addition to the series. 

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

On My Honor by Patty Smith Hall

I love the stories of faith that come through the Heroines of WWII series.  And this story continued the interesting and captivating books of the series.  This was a book about a group of Girl Scouts who discover a stranger on the beach who was basically washed ashore after a tanker attack.  Ginny, a sister of one of these Girl Scouts helps the girls but is worried that the mysterious stranger could be a real danger to them all.  The book is filled with intrigue and mystery.  Definitely the type of book I enjoy and I did!  The scouts did a great job as they worked towards helping the cause.  I highly recommend this book and the entire series.  I have really enjoyed them!

I received a copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was not required to give a positive review.  All thoughts are my own.

Cobalt Skies by Pegg Thomas (A More Perfect Union Book 2)

Cobalt Skies is the 2nd book in the A More Perfect Union series.  This book totally grabbed my attention from the very start.  It was filled with adventure and warm tender moments as well.  I loved the way strangers became the best of friends, and perhaps more.

This book takes you on a journey to the West as former Civil War Cavalryman, Samuel Hickman and the Southern  widow, Mrs. Susanna Piper head out for their personal goals, helping each other along the way.  They run into many difficult situations as they go at a time when North and South still harbored feelings.  This is a heartwarming book.  I really enjoyed everything about it. This book is a page turner!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author.  All thoughts are my own.

A Mississippi Sunset: Women of Courage by Linda Weaver Clarke (Audible Version)

I really enjoyed this sweet and clean historical fiction and romance. It's part of a series of brave women who were not afraid to take a stand in what they believe needed to be changed and you will see some historical figures that appear in this book!  Loved that.  I enjoyed that the Willow Valley people return such as the owner of the hot chocolate shop and others familiar from an earlier book.  The characters are good people trying to make the best of the situations that they are in. However, it is not necessary to have read the previous books in order to be aware of what is happening in this, the third book.  It's a great stand alone story. The narrator was Elizabeth Schmidt, who I believe is a new narrator for the author's Audible books.  I enjoyed her expression and her story-telling abilities.  She was easy to listen to. 

This is a very enjoyable book and it was fun to listen to.  I received a complimentary Audible copy of this book form the author and was not required to post a review.  All thoughts are my own.

An Amish Christmas Inheritance by Virginia Wise

 This was a fun book for me and I really enjoyed it.  I grabbed it at Walmart the other day and so glad I did!.  I loved how the characters grew and developed through the trials and what appeared to be a real obstacle to venture through.  It's fun reading and I was happy that I took the time to read it.  It's a sweet and happy Christmas story.  It's a feel good kind of book!

Coming Home by Shelley Shepard Gray

This is a story of lost love and finding it again, years later.  The separation  after high school's end, left them with hurt feelings and choices that were not the best.  Chelsea finds herself as a single mother, who loves her son and wants to make the right decisions for both herself and for him.  When she reconnects with Anderson Kelly, they both realize there were mistakes made and aren't sure if the feelings they separated with could ever heal.

This is a sweet story and the characters were both caring and thoughtful of the situation they find themselves in.  The book will make you feel good and there are other characters that play an important role in the lives of the main characters.  The story was realistic and I kept reading to see how it played out.  A good book, one that you will truly enjoy.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author through NetGalley. All thoughts are my own.

Anna's Tower by Pegg Thomas (Christian Historical Romance Novellas)

I have always had a real interest in light houses wherever I travel I keep my eyes open to find them, so this story drew me in right away.  I also love all things historical  and so this book fit the bill for me.  

It was engaging to see and read about Anna's desire to help those in need through the occupational hazards of the sea-going shipmen.  I enjoyed this novella very much.  It's a sweet romance and the characters are interesting and unique.

I am sure that you will also enjoy this story.
