ABOUT THE AUTHOR of Robin:

Julane is first of all a child of God. She is also a wife to Bob, mother to two living sons,Kip and Rob, two daughters in heaven, two wonderful daughters-in-law, Becky and Tami, and grandmother to six perfectly wonderful grands, as well as an additional three ‘other grands’. She lives with her husband in a wee cottage by a small lake nestled in the beautiful Flint Hills of Kansas.

Though encouraged by many to pen the story of raising two daughters with an incurable disease, she has chosen to incorporate the lessons learned into the lives of her not-too-perfect characters. Her passion is to present the promises and hope found in God’s Word in down-to-earth, everyday experiences through her stories.

Julane loves reading, decorating, junking, antiques, and chocolate! No particular order, but one would be safe to insert chocolate between all other interests.

ABOUT THE BOOK Robin:

Robin by Julane Hiebert {CFBA}

In 1877 the Wenghold sisters inherited an overwhelming debt with their father’s passing. An uncle they’ve never met offers a solution—come help on his Kansas cattle ranch. The oldest sister, Robin, agrees to go.

Ty Morgan has suffered through a year of misery after being jilted by the town beauty a few months before their wedding. But a tornado whirls an unexpected breath of hope into his heart when he rescues Robin, his neighbor’s newly arrived niece, and a small boy who was orphaned by the storm.

Robin’s crippled leg prevents her from being a real help to Uncle John, but she seems to be exactly who Ty needs to heal his broken heart. Until his former fiancée returns and a mysterious, elusive stranger casts worry over the entire community.

A woman determined to honor her obligations, a man entangled in a long ago-made commitment, an orphaned child in need of security . . . Can God guide these three souls to peace and fulfillment together?

My thoughts:

This was a totally new author to me.  I’d never heard of Julane Hiebert before.  The publisher also was new to me.  So I didn’t know what to expect when I opened up and started to read Robin.  Let me tell you now, this is a wonderful book.  I loved it!  

Robin is so sweet, but behind her sweet exterior is both a heart of gold and a stubborn streak a mile long.  Robin has a leg that is crippled so she walks with a limp.  She is supposed to be helping her uncle with his farm to work off the debt her recently deceased father left behind.  She is the oldest of three sisters and the other two have remained behind.

When she arrives in the town her uncle’s farm is near she’s met by no uncle.  She waits for him to arrive only to be caught up in a tornado.  Welcome to the west!  She’s rescued by a handsome rancher who happens to be her uncle’s neighbor.  The two of them head to her uncle’s ranch and find an abandoned young boy along the way.  Robin is determined to protect and love him.  Will her uncle accept an extra mouth to feed?

Uncle John and Jacob(the young boy) get off to an interesting start but are soon fast friends. Meanwhile, what is going on between the handsome Ty(neighbor) and Robin?  Poor Robin feels she must prove her worth so she’s not sent packing.  She tries to do all the barn chores by herself.  This definitely made me laugh!  I’m a farm girl myself.  Well farm wife I guess I should say.  I know what’s involved with the farm chores and I know if you’re not used to them they can be quite intimidating and well body exhausting!

I loved meeting Robin and following her story.  Things get super complicating with bad guys and old flames showing up for both Ty and Robin.  Then there’s a wagon accident and what about little Jacob’s family?  So much going on.  Great mystery and slight suspense while all the while weaving in a great romance.

I highly recommend this book and hope you’ll take the time to read it.  It also gives you a peek into the next book to come in the series.  My mom and I both read Robin and cannot wait to get our hands on Lark and Wren which are the other two books to be released in the series.  Based on Robin’s two sisters of course, the three little birds.

Double Cross {CFBA book review}

 

ABOUT THE BOOK

FBI Agent Laurel Evertson’s investigation into a scam targeting the elderly takes an unexpected twist when key evidence leads her to Morton Wilmington, a felon she arrested five years ago on her first undercover assignment. That case has haunted her since, and though she’s vowed to forget Wilmington—and what she sacrificed to put him away—he is now her best lead.

Houston Police Officer Daniel Hilton fears his grandparents may be the scammer’s next targets, and he’ll do anything to protect his family—even force interagency cooperation. But he’s quickly drawn to Laurel’s empathy and zeal and agrees to follow her lead . . . even if it means teaming up with a felon.

As the unlikely trio uncovers evidence suggesting the scam is more extensive and deadly than they imagined, both Laurel and Daniel find themselves in the crosshairs of a killer. Together they must decide if they can trust Wilmington’s claims of redemption, or if he’s leading them straight into a double cross.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Double Cross, go HERE.

 

My thoughts:

I have read books by DiAnn Mills before and have never come away unmoved.  She writes with passion and makes you a part of her book. She also creates a web of suspense and intrigue that you can’t get away from until the book has come to a close.

This book is the same.  It’s full of suspense and murder and twists and turns. Who are the real bad guys?  Who can you trust?  Can we be the ones who judge whether someone really has or has not accepted Christ personally?  

All of the above is touched on in this book.  FBI agent Laurel has fallen in love with a police officer Daniel.  He is trying to protect his aging grandparents, one of whom suffers from Alzheimers and is the victim of elderly scam involving fake life insurance policies.  But even though they’re developing feelings for each other Laurel has an important assignment to try to catch these scammers.

Can Laurel pretend to be in love with a man she put behind bars years ago who she despises while really loving Daniel?  Can she keep them both safe?  

Loved this book!  Definitely think everyone should pick up a copy and read it!

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Mist of Midnight

 

 

 

In the first of a brand-new series set in Victorian England, a young woman returns home from India after the death of her family to discover her identity and inheritance are challenged by the man who holds her future in his hands.

Rebecca Ravenshaw, daughter of missionaries, spent most of her life in India. Following the death of her family in the Indian Mutiny, Rebecca returns to claim her family estate in Hampshire, England. Upon her return, people are surprised to see her…and highly suspicious. Less than a year earlier, an imposter had arrived with an Indian servant and assumed not only Rebecca’s name, but her home and incomes.

That pretender died within months of her arrival; the servant fled to London as the young woman was hastily buried at midnight. The locals believe that perhaps she, Rebecca, is the real imposter. Her home and her father’s investments reverted to a distant relative, the darkly charming Captain Luke Whitfield, who quickly took over. Against her best intentions, Rebecca begins to fall in love with Luke, but she is forced to question his motives—does he love her or does he just want Headbourne House? If Luke is simply after the property, as everyone suspects, will she suffer a similar fate as the first “Rebecca”?

If you would like to read the first chapter of Mist of Midnight, go HERE.

 

My thoughts: 

Mist of Midnight is a great read.  It read quickly and really drew me in.  I loved getting to know Rebecca Ravenshaw and learning with her who the person who was pretending to be her(and died) was.  Very sad story going along in there.  And then there is the charming Captain Luke who is the one who was supposed to inherit all her family’s land and house if she did die.  Now she must prove to everyone that she is indeed herself!  Her parents and brother are dead and now she must defend who she is.

In this book you will find a French maid who takes more liberties than she should, a foreign speaking servant who just wants to protect herself from being thought a murderer, a girl who everyone thought to be dead(but is very much alive), an imposter, and a man who is looking for a home.  He finally finds a home but now it is taken from him by a rightful heir(or is she really?)  Oh my!  

I really enjoyed learning about Rebecca and the time period she lives in.  I love the missionary work and the talk of uprisings and the research that was done.  The author also knows how to spin a tale so you are on the edge of your seat. And then we need some romance of course.  Luke and Rebecca are drawn to each other and if she can just convince him she is herself and convince herself he’s not just after her inherit love just may bloom!

ABOUT THE BOOK

A boy coming of age in a time of war…

the love that inspires him to survive.

For ten year-old Jeremiah Prins, the life of privilege as the son of a school headmaster in the Dutch East Indies comes crashing to a halt in 1942 after the Japanese Imperialist invasion of the Southeast Pacific. Jeremiah takes on the responsibility of caring for his younger siblings when his father and older stepbrothers are separated from the rest of the family, and he is surprised by what life in the camp reveals about a woman he barely knows—his frail, troubled mother.

Amidst starvation, brutality, sacrifice and generosity, Jeremiah draws on all of his courage and cunning to fill in the gap for his mother. Life in the camps is made more tolerable as Jeremiah’s boyhood infatuation with his close friend Laura deepens into a friendship from which they both draw strength.

When the darkest sides of humanity threaten to overwhelm Jeremiah and Laura, they reach for God’s light and grace, shining through his people. Time and war will test their fortitude and the only thing that will bring them safely to the other side is the most enduring bond of all.

But then drought comes to Wise, and Perla is pulled into the turmoil of a town desperately in need of a miracle.

Casewell Phillips has resigned himself to life as a bachelor. . .until he meets Perla. She’s everything he’s sought in a woman, but he can’t get past the sense that she’s hiding something.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Miracle in a Dry Season, go HERE.

 

 

 

My thoughts:  This is the second book I have read by Sarah Loudin Thomas and I have to say that it is just as good or better than the first!  She knows how to write in such a way as to keep you fully and wholly immersed in the book.  I didn’t want to put it down.  And then it ended. . . . and I still didn’t want to put it down!  Highly recommend that you get to know Perla and Casewell(such interesting and unique character names) on your own and form your own opinions!

A Grand Design
Abingdon Press (August 19, 2014)
by
Amber Stockton
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Words from the author:

Hi, I’m Amber, but my friends call me Tiff, short for Tiffany, my first name. I am in my mid-30’s, married to the love of my life since July 2007, have a daughter and a son, and live in Colorado. Here, I am content to do what I love—write, speak, and offer virtual assistance.

Thanks to the gentle nudging of a fellow author — Tracie Peterson — in 2002, I joined the American Christian Fiction Writers and wouldn’t be published today without them. For those of you who are also fiction writers looking for a wonderful support group, check them out! My very first book, Promises, Promises, sold in December 2006 and released in February 2008. I’ve been going steady ever since.

ABOUT THE BOOK

When Alyssa Denham, a single career woman, wins a fun getaway for two on Mackinac Island where her grandmother lives, she gives her carefree best friend a call. Together, they tour the old shops and hidden treasures of the quaint island while helping Alyssa’s grandmother piece together an heirloom quilt. Their quest gains them entrance into the homes of many longtime residents of the island, parts of the city that are otherwise off limits to tourists.
As the quilt’s story takes shape, Alyssa gains amazing insight into her grandmother’s life . . . and attracts the attention of the handsome Scott Whitman, an island resident in charge of hotel transportation. Will memories of her past keep Alyssa from letting go? Or will the quest to piece together the heirloom quilt restore Alyssa’s fractured heart—and bring healing to her entire family?

If you would like to read the first chapter of A Grand Design, go HERE.

 

 

My thoughts:  I’ve spoken of the Quilts of Love book series a lot lately.  I really do love them.  They combine a love of quilting or maybe merely a quilt into each book and weave a story that makes it central.  In this particular one we follow Alyssa as she heads on a free cruise that comes with extra baggage.  Her past must be faced as the destination of the cruise is an island her family has lived on for years but that she hasn’t seen in at least 15.  There are memories that haunt her and then her past shows up in her present.  Can the handsome Scott help her work through her troubles and convince her she does have a future?

by
Creston Mapes
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Creston has fond memories of his boyhood in Bath, Ohio, where he became enchanted with his future wife, way back in the fourth grade. His father, Bernie, owned and operated The Weathervane Furniture Shop in town. The whole family lived right upstairs in the century-old house known as “The Shop.”

Creston studied journalism at Bowling Green State University, then began his writing career. During the past 30 years, he has worked as a reporter, corporate copywriter, creative director, freelance writer, and author.
ABOUT THE BOOK

A rally for a controversial presidential candidate.

A terrorist threat.

A nightmare of cataclysmic proportions. 

Jack and Pamela Crittendon have hit the breaking point. After months out of work as a reporter, Jack is playing Mr. Mom and working part-time at Festival Arena with his survivalist friend Brian Shakespeare. Meanwhile, Pamela has gone back to work full-time while eight months pregnant. Having her recently widowed mother on hand isn’t making matters any easier.
With financial pressures boiling, Jack reports for duty at a rally for controversial presidential candidate Martin Sterling where he expects a mindless night on the job. But when Homeland Security picks up intel about a potential terrorist threat, Jack and Shakespeare are thrust into a life-or-death battle to save their own lives–and the lives of thousands of innocent people.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Sky Zone, go HERE.

 

My thoughts:  Another great read from Creston Mapes.  I love following Jack through his adventures and see what trouble he can dig up!  This is no exception.  The big question is will Jack be able to save those he loves?  It’s a great book.  I enjoyed meeting new characters and getting to know some old ones better.  If you haven’t read any of the other Jack Crittendon files make sure to go back and read those as well.  You won’t need to read them in order if you do not wish to, but I’m a bit OCD and I definitely would!

A Heart to Heal
Love Inspired (July 15, 2014)
by
Allie Pleiter
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Enthusiastic but slightly untidy mother of two, Allie Pleiter writes both fiction and nonfiction. An avid knitter, harp player and non-reformed chocoholic, she spends her days writing books, doing laundry, running carpools and finding new ways to avoid housework. Allie grew up in Connecticut, holds a BS in speech from Northwestern University and currently lives in suburban Chicago, Illinois. The “dare from a friend” to begin writing eight years ago has blossomed into a career that includes numerous public speaking engagements, two books on parenting; Becoming a Chief Home Officer and Facing Every Mom’s Fears and now novels for Steeple Hill Books. She is the mother of two children and, most recently, a Havanese dog named Bella.
ABOUT THE BOOK

The Courage To Hope.

Guidance counselor Heather Browning is desperate. She needs a mentor to help Simon, a disabled student who is struggling at Gordon Falls High School. Unfortunately, hotshot Max Jones is her only option. Confrontational and cavalier, Max uses his flashy persona to hide the bitterness he’s felt since his life-changing accident. Perpetually cautious, Heather finds Max’s bad-boy bravado as intriguing as it is infuriating. But as Heather and Max work together to build Simon’s self-confidence, they begin to trust each other. Max has never been slow and careful with anything. Can he be gentle with Heather’s heart?

Gordon Falls: Hearts ablaze in a small town.

If you’d like to read the first chapter of A Heart to Heal, go HERE.

 

My thoughts:  As a mental health nurse I took away more from this than most people probably would.  I tend to scrutinize both people in real life and people in books.  Bad habit I suppose but can be entertaining!  I love the recognition this book gives to people who are paralyzed and in wheelchairs but also to people with cerebral palsy.  You see, I have older twin brothers who both have cerebral palsy.  They have to use walkers to get around instead of wheelchairs but I can see so much of them in this book.  That being said, this is an awesome book!  Just what you’d expect from a Love Inspired book.  Lots of romance and fun with just the right hint of troubles and problems.  I loved watching not only Simon grow and change, but Max and Heather as well.  They end up all having healed hearts and finding a place for themselves.

In The Field of Grace
River North; New Edition edition (July 1, 2014)
by
Tessa Afshar
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

TESSA AFSHAR was voted “New Author of the Year” by the Family Fiction sponsored Reader’s Choice Award 2011 for her novel Pearl in the Sand. She was born in Iran, and lived there for the first fourteen years of her life. She moved to England where she survived boarding school for girls and fell in love with Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte, before moving to the United States permanently. Her conversion to Christianity in her twenties changed the course of her life forever. Tessa holds an MDiv from Yale University where she served as co-chair of the Evangelical Fellowship at the Divinity School. She has spent the last thirteen years in full-time Christian work.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Destitute, grief-stricken, and unwanted by the people of God, Ruth arrives in Israel with nothing to recommend her but Naomi’s, love. Her loftiest hope is to provide enough food to save Naomi and herself from starvation.

But God has other plans for her life. While everyone considers Ruth an outcast, she is astounded to find one of the most honored men of Judah showing her favor.  Long since a widower and determined to stay that way, Boaz is irresistibly drawn to the foreign woman with the haunted eyes. He tells himself he is only being kind to his Cousin Naomi’s chosen daughter when he goes out of his way to protect her from harm, but his heart knows better.

Based on the biblical account of Ruth, In the Field of Grace is the story of a love that ultimately changes the course of Israel’s destiny and the future of the whole world.

If you would like to read the first chapter of In The Field of Grace, go HERE.

 

My thoughts:  I have just recently begun to read and be interested in Bible Times historical fiction and have to say this author is one of the reasons.  Her stories are so catching!  They suck you in and before you know it you are there with them and learning so much while being entertained as well.  The story of Ruth is one we’ve all heard plenty of times I’m sure, but this book gives it a different twist.  It makes Ruth into more of a girl you might know.  Gives her qualities that we had not heard and a glimpse of her life before following Naomi.  I highly recommend this book!
