A stillness of chimes by Meg Moseley

I was so eager to receive "A Stillness of Chimes" by Meg Moseley in the mail,I have read several of her previous works and was very eager to read another book by her and this one certainly did not disappoint! Ms. Moseley is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors.
When Laura comes home to handle her Mother's estate she encounters more than she bargained for and her life is turned completely upside down. When there are rumored sightings of her long thought drowned Father Laura's set out to find out the truth behind her family that will shock her.

I really enjoyed the characters and the authors style of writing and  cannot recommend this book enough to anyone who enjoys a good read by an author who is highly skilled,

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

Visible threat by Janice Cantore

When it comes to Christian Crime fiction I would have to say that Janice Cantore is top notch and is quickly becoming my favorite author in that genre because of her well developed characters and the authenticity of her books (not a small wonder since she is a retired cop).I was beyond excited when I received my copy of the 2nd book in the Critical Pursuit series and it certainly did not disappoint! I have to say that I like the Critical Pursuit series even better than the Pacific Coast Justice series and that is saying a lot!
Once again Officer Brinna is on her crusade to save the innocents of the world,when she meets orphans Ivana and her sister who are from Bulgariam, but instead of finding the American dream they have found something much more sinister. As Brinna and homicide detective Jack O'Reilly dig deeper into the case of a young woman found dead with a mysterious tattoo on her hip,they quickly find themselves dragged into the dark world of human trafficking.

I cannot recommend this book enough,yes it deals with some gritty things,but human trafficking is a huge problem,much larger than most people realize and it is something that people need to be more aware of and help prevent.

I received a copy of this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.

If the Shoe fits by Sandra Bricker

I am always a fan of a good sweet romance where the characters are enjoyably quirky and don't realize that the thing they want is what has been right next to them for awhile.I had great expectations when I received this book and I was certainly not disappointed!
Julianne Bartlett is a girl one can relate to,she is a successful lawyer but is not so successful in her love life,that is until she meets a man who she is convinced is her Prince Charming,but wonder if that isn't what God has in store for her? As Julianne tries to figure out what exactly God has for her she learns that His ways are always best,even if they are not what we expect.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good read with a great message!

I received this book from the publishers but the opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Bounce back by Julie Clinton review and book giveaway!

Everyone has had periods in their lives when life just isn't going where we want it to and where our dreams are in ashes at our feet.Julie Clinton addresses such issues and so much more in her newest book "Bounce Back" where she shares her own personal struggles as well as the struggles of so many others that leave you encouraged and uplifted.Does that mean troubles won't come? No,but what we do with those trials and troubles and where our heart turns to is what matters.

This book was a very encouraging read and I was very inspired by it and I am delighted to say that I have a copy of this wonderful book to giveaway! Please comment on this post and I will select a winner and will then notify you.

The A-Z of C.S. Lewis by Colin Duriez

A Complete Guide to His Life, Thoughts and Writings
Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of C. S. Lewis's death, this complete guide covers all of Lewis' works, from his literary criticism to Narnia.
C. S. Lewis's work is widely known and regarded, but enthusiasts are often only aware of one part of his work-his children's stories and his popular theology; and yet he wrote so much more, including science fiction and literary criticism. This volume brings together all aspects of C S Lewis's life and thought. Arranged in alphabetical order, it begins with The Abolition of Man-written in 1943 and described as "almost my favorite"-to Wormwood, a character in The Screwtape Letters. This book will delight anyone who is interested in C. S. Lewis and wants to learn more about him, his thought, his works, and his life.

About the Author: 

Colin Duriez was for many years a commissioning editor at Inter-Varsity Press UK. He has subsequently appeared as a commentator on DVDs of Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, and BBC television's The Worlds of Fantasy. He is also the author of The Inklings Handbook (with the late David Porter), J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis: The Story of Their Friendship, and Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings, and has contributed to definitive reference works relating to Tolkien such as The Tolkien Encyclopedia (Routledge).

My impression of the book:I am a devout fan of C.S. Lewis so for me this book is utterly perfect. Where else can you so easily access all of his famous sayings as well as be able to look up anything significant in his life? For anyone who is even remotely interested in Lewis this simply is a must! Colin Duriez is quite the authority on Lewis and Tolkien having written numerous books on each,all of which are wonderful.

This book would make an excellent present or would be a welcome addition to any library,to put up there right next to 'Mere Christianity' or "The Screwtape Letters".I simply cannot recommend this book enough.

I received a copy of this book from the publishers but the opinions expressed are entirely my own.

Prime of Life by P.D. Beckendam

If you are looking for a charming, quirky read then I highly recommend this book! All of the characters are enjoyably odd and endearing. Ben used to be a Doctor but has left it all to be a janitor at a retirement facility and is very happy spending time with the residence and even meeting a lovely Doctor who might just be interested in him,but when his past begins to catch up with him and his life begins to unravel Ben is forced to face things head on.

This was an enjoyable read,might not be for everyone,but I enjoyed it.

The Pursuit of Tamsen Littlejohn by Lori Benton

This is the 2nd book by Lori Benton I have read and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite Christian historical fiction authors,not only because of her lyrical writing, but because of her attention to detail and the depth of information she gives about the times her characters are living in, her books truly are historical fiction at its best!
To escape an arranged marriage that she does not want, Tamsen Littlejohn gets the help of Jesse Bird to get away from civilization and go west beyond the Blue Ridge mountains. As Tamsen encounters chaos and terror in the wild frontier she begins to learn what it is God wants of her and what her future will hold.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys well written Christian fiction.
