A Love For Tomorrow by Vanessa Miller

Love for TomorrowLove for Tomorrow by Vanessa Miller

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

First of all, this is my first read by Vanessa Miller and while I enjoyed this book, I cannot recommend it because it defies what the Bible says about the role of women in the church. From a purely "I'm reading this because it's a good book,not filled with smut and foul language" standpoint, I could recommend it.

Serenity has just been dumped by Michael because he can't stand her being in the limelight more than he. She moves on with her life, further builds her career, and when the chips start to fall, who's there for her? Why did the chips all anyway? Could it be that bridges burnt can haunt you?

I read this book in just under 2 hours. It's a super fast read for a rainy day!

Many thanks to the publisher for providing review copy!

Judgment Day by Wanda Dyson

Judgment Day: A NovelJudgment Day: A Novel by Wanda Dyson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this to be an enjoyable book and a super fast read. I finished it in under 12 hours during the beginning of my Thanksgiving vacation!

In Judgment Day, a reporter by the name of Suzanne, just can't keep her mouth shut. She wants to be the first to release the story, no matter the cost. When it's suspected that the principal is the one abducting young girls, Suzanne jumps to scoop the story on air without having all the facts. Needless to say,the principal is not impressed and is not guilty either. When he takes his life, other events take place that cause Suzanne to have to hire a private investigator. Did it have to be her former flame?

This is my first read by Wanda Dyson and it won't be my last! Looking at her website,  I see several other books that interest me! You can read an excerpt of this book by clicking

Head In The Clouds by Karen Witemeyer

Head in the CloudsHead in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Does Adelaide really have her head in the clouds? I think so! This is a great follow-up to Tailor Made Bride by Karen Witemeyer. British nobles, governesses, rogues, and sheep herders are all that's necessary to make this book complete! I loved everything about this book, especially the cover!

My favorite character, without question, is Isabelle! How could one resist her charm? Poor thing has had a rough life though and is now mute because of her trials. However, Adelaide is on a mission to change that. What will it take to get her to speak again?

Gideon is also intriguing. Love the name, wish he were real so he could sweep me off my feet (in the form of my real hubby!) Hmmm...nothing like a sheep herder with an adorable daughter to make you fall in love!

I highly recommend this read. It's a quick read (took me longer than I wanted because of time constraints!) that is well worth the magical journey. Oh how I wish I would have lived back in this era! The author makes you feel that you are there watching the sheep shearing and feeling Adelaide's fabrics wrapped around you! Great book for teens and older!

I'm looking forward to more of Karen's works!

Many thanks to Bethany House and Karen Witemeyer for providing me a copy of this book for review!
