Earning Her Trust by Brenda Minton // Review

Lucie's Review: 

A heartwarming romance about second chances and overcoming fear.

Emery is passionate about helping children. An abuse survivor herself, she is working towards her masters degree and works as a school counselor. She is surprised when the boy who bullied her growing up, is a man who has guardianship of two orphans, pulling her heart in two different directions. 

A well written read, with good character growth and interactions, strong themes of faith and forgiveness. I could understand Emery's hesitancy to trust Beau in light of how she knew him in the past. I loved seeing him with the girls, and Beau's sincerity. 

Overall, a wonderful book with great dialogue and heartwarming characters. A beautiful story well worth the read. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.


I'll Be Seeing You by Robin Lee Hatcher // Review

My Review:

A dual timeline novel that tells a generational story  of grace and love. 

Brianna Hastings is working on a college assignment so she asks her grandmother to tell her about life during WWII. What unfolds is a story of two sisters, a choice that changes their lives about love, sacrifice and the power of God's grace. 

A masterfully told story that is an excellent example of why Robin Lee Hatcher is one of my favorite authors, I grew up reading her books and am still reading them now! I loved the strong themes of faith and the impact of the choices that we make, as well as how Daisy's story from the past is an excellent companion to Brianna's in the modern day. I really enjoyed how the story follows 5 characters, as they grow and change over the course of story. I think that I was most surprised by Brandon, but my favorite was Todd hands down. 

Overall, a compelling story of faith, heartache and God's wonderful gift of grace. My heart broke with Daisy, and it was cool to see all the wonderful things happening in her life and how she grew and learned to make choices that would bring strength to her family. Highly recommend this beautiful novel!

Worthy of Legend by Roseanna M. White // Review

About the Book
After a summer of successful pirate-treasure hunting, Lady Emily Scofield and her friends are forced to hide the unprecedented discoveries they’ve made, thanks to the betrayal of her own family. Horrified by her brother who stops at nothing to prove himself to their greedy father, Emily is forced to take a stand against her family—even when it means being cut off entirely.

Bram Sinclair, Earl of Telford, is fascinated with tales of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table—an interest he’s kept mostly hidden for the last decade. But when a diary is unearthed in the islands that could lead to a secret artifact, Bram is the only one able to piece the legends together.

As Bram and Emily seek out the whereabouts of the hidden artifact, they must dodge her eager family and a team of archeologists. In a race against time, they must decide what makes a hero worthy of legend—is it fighting valiantly to claim the treasure . . . or sacrificing everything in the name of selfless love? 

My Review:

A thrilling adventure filled conclusion to a fantastic series, as they draw closer to Mucknell's treasure the clues point to an unimaginable bounty Worthy of Legend.

Thoroughly satisfying, I loved getting to know some of the quieter members of the crew. Emily and Bram completely won me over, and I loved them even more together! Curmudgeonly and enigmatic, Bram hides his inner shining knight, I liked that he was perceptive enough to see where he was needed and found a way to help. Tommie was such a hidden gem, and I loved seeing her come out of her shell as well as her selfless friendship with Emily. 

A gripping read, filled with adventure, strong themes of faith, and captivating characters. I loved how Emily's friends supported her, and the fantastic dialogue between Sheridan and Bram. I didn't want to put this book down. A wonderfully satisfyingly adventurous and romantic series, each book better than the last, you won't want to miss it!

The Deadly Shallows by Dani Pettrey // Review

Lucie's Review: 

A tragic shooting and deadly waters, leave the Coast Guard scrambling to find answers and keep their team safe. 

A wonderful addition to the series, filled with action, and suspense. I loved the friendship and teamwork, as Noah and Brooke get to know each other while working with familiar faces from previous books. There is a lot going on, and the characters are well developed, with strong relationship building.

Noah is a CGIS agent investigating the shooting, while Brooke is a medic. I loved their dedication to protecting their comrades, as well as seeing them come to trust each other more and more. 

I loved how this book also followed Caleb as he and Austin work on the other case, as we have seen them in the background of previous books, so I was happy that they got a bigger part of this book. 

Overall, a entertaining mystery suspense, with great characters, themes of faith, duty, and love. Excellent for fans of Christian romantic suspense!

About the Book

Book: As Silent as the Night

Author: Danielle Grandinetti

Genre: Historical Romantic Suspense

Release date: September 13, 2022

He can procure anything, except his heart’s deepest wish. She might hold the key, if she’s not discovered first.

Chicago, 1933―Lucia Critelli will do anything for her ailing grandfather, including stand in a breadline to have enough food to make him a St. Nicholas Day meal. When she catches the eye of a goon who threatens her grandfather, she discovers the end of Prohibition doesn’t mean the end of the mafia’s criminal activity.

Retired Marine Scout Giosue “Gio” Vella can find anything, especially if it helps a fellow Italian immigrant, so he has no doubt he can locate his neighbor’s granddaughter, who has gone missing from a local church. Keeping her safe is another matter. Especially when he chooses to hide out with his Marine buddy in Eagle, Wisconsin, the site of a barely-held truce among striking dairy farmers.

Will Christmas bring the miracle they all need or will Gio discover there are some things even he can’t find, particularly when he stumbles upon the most elusive gift of all: love.

As Silent as the Night is the Christmas novella to To Stand in the Breach and A Strike to the Heart.

My Review: A wonderful heartwarming addition to the series just in time for Christmas. 

When Lucia Critelli is taken by the mafia, Gio Vella must use his head and his connections to keep her safe, but he finds that his heart is also in danger. 

I loved returning to the familiar faces from the previous books, like Katie, Joey, Miles, Lily and more, catching up with them as well as how they made Lucia feel welcome. This novella could probably be read as a standalone if the reader desired. 

Overall, a quick read just in time for Christmas, with likeable characters that brought a smile to my face. I loved the Christmas theme, elements of suspense, and that Gio get's his own story. A wonderful companion to the rest of the series.

More from Danielle

I have this memory, from when I was a little girl, of Christmas at my grandma’s house. The table was expanded to hold a dozen people. The little Christmas tree stood on a table before the window, the Nativity beneath it. A gingerbread house sat on the radio cabinet, which played my grandpa’s old Christmas records.


In the kitchen, my Italian grandma, now a widow, had on a ruffled apron as she cooked the Christmas meal. She had short, graying black hair, perfectly curled, and large, round glasses. And, was still taller than me, though she was under 5 foot in height.


Through the haze of childhood memory, I can’t recall everything she cooked that Christmas, I just know it filled the table to overflowing. I can guess who celebrated with us, but I know the large table was completely surrounded by people I loved. And, I’m sure I received gifts, but that’s not what I remember from that day.


What fills my memory is the feeling of family and the love my grandma showed us, through food. My full belly. My contentment. The wonder of the holidays. All through the eyes of my young self.


In As Silent as the Night, I attempt to capture some of this nostalgia, lace it with suspense, and wrap it in romance. I show about some of the traditional holidays celebrated by my characters, from St. Nicholas Day to Christmas Eve. And, while Gio can find anything, love eludes him. However, Lucia may hold the key, but he must first save her.


Silent as the Night concludes my Strike to the Heart series, which began with prequel novella To Stand in the Breach. As sad as it is to say goodbye to the farmers of Eagle, Wisconsin, I have loved sharing the stories of Katy and Joey, Lily and Miles, and Gio and Lucia with you. I hope you’ll enjoy this last installment and I look forward to sharing more stories from other places with you.


Buon Natale.

Merry Christmas.

The Baby's Christmas Blessing by Meghann Whistler // Review


When Steve Weston unexpectedly finds himself the guardian of his newborn nephew, he has only one place to turn. Can tragedy turn into a second chance for love?

An engaging read, with likable characters both working to overcome hang ups from the past, who are given an opportunity to break the ice again. I liked how they learned from their pasts, and seeing their relationship grow while taking care of Aiden. 

I liked that both Steve and Chloe where both working hard, taking the next step in their careers. I liked that they have good friends, who are insightful and supportive throughout. 

This was quick read for me that brought a smile to my face. Heartwarming and sweet, with a cozy small town setting, and a Holiday twist.

Legacy Peak // Movie Review and Giveaway

Legacy Peak is a thrilling adventure that the whole family can enjoy.

Jason wants nothing more than to have Noelle’s kids like him. But when a  perfectly planned trip to a mountain cabin falls apart, the ensuing adventure could  tear them apart or bring them closer than they ever imagined. Together they'll discover how to trust again and what it means to be a family.

Legacy Peak will be exclusively on Pure Flix starting September 22nd!

A wholesome adventure for the entire family!

Jason is excited to take the next step in his relationship with Noelle, and he has a carefully plotted plan to win the hearts of her children as well. But when their fun trip becomes a fight for survival they find their new relationship tested to the limits.

An entertaining film with an original premise, and light Christmas themes. I was very impressed by the strong themes of faith and fatherhood brought out in this film. Jason is a man of strong faith, he has great wilderness skills, yet he isn't afraid to admit that he is in uncharted waters with the kids. I admired how he keeps trying, and showing them that he is serious about being in their lives.

I liked how the movie had an action filled plot, with things quickly escalating from a run of the mill trip to the mountains to a full blown adventure. Ben is an exuberant kid with an adventurous spirit who tends to rush headlong into things. Sam is more hesitant to trust Jason, but is very protective of her younger brother.

Overall a solid film that you can feel good about watching with your family, that isn't just clean but has great faith themes as well!

Deception by Patricia Bradley // Review

Lucie's Review: 
There is a lot going on in this fast paced, twisting suspense. Perfect for people who like to be kept guessing and holding on tight with each twist. 

Madison Thorn is settling into her job working to track down white collar criminals, until one of the crimes turns violent, bring up secrets from the past. Clayton is the constant throughout everything, providing support. I liked that Clayton has changed his live in the last few years through faith, and how he wants to be someone that Madison can count on. 

Action packed tangled web of deception, an entertaining read with plenty going on that kept me guessing. Solid characters that I could root for throughout, in this suspenseful read.

A Quilt for Christmas by Melody Carlson // Review

Lucie's Review:  

An unlikely group comes together to make a little girl's Christmas wish come true. 

A feel-good read, about loving your neighbors, getting out of your comfort zone, and friendship. 

Fiona is such an adorable child and I loved how she captures the hearts of those that she encounters. I loved how Vera jumps in to befriend little Fiona, and how meeting her inspires her to try new things and work together with people whom she might never have had a reason to talk to otherwise. 

Entertaining, a steady, and a colorful cast of characters. The perfect cozy book to get you in the mood for Christmastime. I loved getting to know the many people she befriended, as well as the touches of romance. Heartwarming read in time for Christmas.

Long Way Home by Lynn Austin // Review

My Review: Compelling journey of friendship, and faith. 

Peggy Serrano is on a quest to help her best friend, Jimmy, by finding out what happened to him during the war in hopes of unlocking a start to healing.

A compelling story of family and friendship, that explores the questions of faith, pain and suffering. Peggy is a hardworking young woman, I loved the friendship between her and the Barnett family throughout the story, as well as her determination to help Jimmy and Joe. This book does a great job of not only showing the horrors of the war, but also the aftermath and its toll. I loved how the author brought Jimmy to life through the eyes of those who loved him best, showing the man he was before and throughout the war. 

Overall, a beautifully written book that explores hard question of hurting and why God allows suffering. I admired Gisela for her strength throughout her ordeal. Lynn Austin doesn't disappoint in this latest WW2 novel filled with faith, hope and love. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.


Honor Bound by Hallee Bridgeman // Review

Lucie's Review: 

A page turning read with compelling characters and a plot that pulled me in from the very beginning. 

One of the best books I've read in a long time, and I instantly added the rest of the series to my TBR. Dr. Cynthia Meyers left her high pressure life to go to the mission field in Africa, but when helping others puts her in the line of fire she finds her beliefs challenged by an unlikely ally. 

Capt. Rick Norton is part of the Army Special Forces sent to ease tensions with an African warlord. Skilled in what he does, he is determined to see them out of the foreign conflict alive. I loved the interaction between Cynthia and Rick as they get to know each other, to see past their initially opposing views. 

Overall this was an amazing read, I was captivated by the realistic characters, riveting plot, and authentic faith woven throughout the story. You won't want to miss this one!

Sold on Love by Kathleen Fuller // Review

My Review:
A sweet opposites attract romance that brought a smile to my face. 

Engaging, quick read, filled with heart and lovable characters. Harper has worked hard to build up her business, but sales have been slow, and she has a lot on her plate. I admired her for her work ethic, and I liked how she is always willing to helps others.

My favorite characters had to be Rusty and Senior. Rusty is kind and humble, with a heart of gold. Senior is a wise man with a sense of humor and great timing. I loved how he made the scenes that he was in sparkle.

Overall, another delightful visit to Maple Falls, with cameos from favorite characters from previous books, while leaving room for more books in the future.

Code of Courage by Janice Cantore // Review


In a thrilling adventure that feels torn from the frontpage. Detective Danni Grace is shaken after an anti-police riot, and now she must investigate a case involving known anti-police activist. Every step closer is thwarted by commands from farther up the ladder, as co-workers are suspended and framed. Can Danni and Gabe get to the bottom of the case before more people get hurt?

A engaging and compelling read, though it could be uncomfortable for readers who are looking for and escape from the real world. I found this book so hard to put down, and couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. I thought that this book did a good job of showing the good and the bad of policing, while balancing relationship building, suspense, and a mystery that kept me engaged and guessing. 

Overall, this was a well written read with compelling characters. I liked the strong themes of faith, justice, and second chances, especially seeing Gabe and Danni reconnect. A heart pounding suspense, that I thoroughly enjoyed.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.


Entrusted by Jody Hedlund // Review

My Review: 

A captivating read and satisfying conclusion to the Knights of Brethren Series. 

A fast paced read, with an engaging plot, strong themes of loyalty and admirable characters. 

I loved Brigitta from the beginning and I enjoyed the twist of seeing the building conflict from the other side for the first time. I liked that Brigitta and Kristoffer are both fiercely loyal people, yet they don't let it cloud their knowledge of what is right. And I loved seeing Espen and Kristoffer's friendship again in this book. 

I thought that this book did a great job of expanding the world of the series with a glimpse into Swaine, Canute, and the dark warriors. Though the final installment in what has been a fantastic series, it did leave the door open for future books connected to the series, which I definitely hope is picked up on. You won't want to miss the thrilling and romantic conclusion to the Knights of  Brethren.

Laura's Shadow by Allison Pittman // Celebrate Lit Tour, Review, and Giveaway

About the Book

Author: Allison Pittman

Genre: Christian/Historical/Romance

Release date: August 1, 2022

Family Secrets Spill One Conversation at a Time

Visit historic American landmarks through the Doors to the Past series. History and today collide in stories full of mystery, intrigue, faith, and romance.

De Smet, South Dakota—1890
Young women growing up in DeSmet live by two rules: don’t go out in a snowstorm and don’t give your heart to Cap Garland. Young Mariah Patterson only managed to obey one. Orphaned and having devoted her youth to scrapping out a life with her brother Charles, Mariah finds herself with no interesting suitors or means of support. Throwing caution to the wind, she seizes an opportunity to lay her feelings at Cap’s feet, even though she knows Cap sees the world through the torch he carries for Laura Ingalls. Mariah is certain her love for Cap will be strong enough to break both bonds, and she’s willing to risk everything to prove it.

De Smet, South Dakota—1974
Trixie Gowan is the fourth generation of living Gowan women residing in the sprawling farmhouse on the outskirts of De Smet. Well, former resident. She’s recently moved to Minneapolis, where she writes ads for a neighborhood paper edited by Ron Tumble. She might live and work in the city, but her co-workers still call her Prairie Girl. Thus the inspiration for her comic strip—“Lost Laura”—in which a bespectacled girl in a calico dress tries to make her way in the city. The name is a quiet rebellion having grown up in a household where she’d been forbidden to mention the name, Laura Ingalls. But when her great-grandmother Mariah’s declining health brings Trixie home for a visit, two things might just keep her there: the bedside manner of Dr. Campbell Carter and the family secret that seems to be spilling from GG’s lips one conversation at a time.

A dual timeline novel that delves into the world of America's most beloved prairie girl. 

Written in Ms. Pittman's signature lush prose, with descriptions that make you want to pause and linger on the mental image, she brings to life briefly mentioned characters from the beloved Laura Ingalls Wilder novel. I was intrigued by the premise, though at times it was hard to read because I could see the wheels churning in Mariah's head leading up to a choice she made and couldn't stop her. I think that readers should be warned that there is a fade to black sex scene, and I didn't find the way that it was dealt with in the aftermath satisfying for me personally.

Oddly in this dual timeline story I actually enjoyed the more contemporary story better, as Trixie decides between the familiar and taking a chance on something new. I loved her friendship with Ron, and his quirky charm. 

Overall, I have really mixed feelings about this book. It definitely has a little of everything going on with forbidden love, love triangles, arranged marriages of convenience, Laura Ingalls, and family secrets revealed. Some things I really loved, and others I didn't. A story of love and longing, that does a great job bringing the South Dakota prairie to life. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

More from Allison

I can credit Laura Ingalls Wilder for just about every aspect of my identity. I’m a reader because I read her books over and over and over again, checking them out from my little elementary school library. I can still see them—last bookcase, bottom shelf. During the summer, I checked them out from the Bookmobile, and one magical Christmas, I received my own set. The well-worn, yellow paperbacks have a place of honor in my office: top shelf, center stage. It was amazing to my eight-year-old self that I could pick up Little House in the Big Woods, skip the dull parts, and jump straight to These Happy Golden Years in a single afternoon.

Looking at Laura’s writing now (as I often do), I realize I spent my childhood absorbing the art of telling a story. Her books masterfully string meaningful vignettes within an over-arching conflict. She creates stories-within-a-story-within-a-story whenever Pa launches into a tall tale, and minor characters come to life no matter how brief their appearance. (Aunt Docia, anyone?)

When I first came up with the concept of writing a story set in the world of Laura Ingalls Wilder, I knew I couldn’t bring Laura herself in as a character. There’s a sacredness to her story, and I wouldn’t dream of inserting myself into the cannon of her pages. But—I thought—surely she had peers who grew up alongside her, classmates who also hated Miss Wilder, young men who might have set their own cap for her, townsfolk who remembered the vibrant young woman with the button-brown eyes and dark curls. And then I pondered further: maybe there was another side to Laura—a side that she kept from the romanticized ideal skipping through the pages of her books. My first thought was to create a fictional De Smet town girl, but then…

In researching and reading Pioneer Girl, The Annotated Autobiography of Laura Ingalls Wilder, I came across a bit of information that brought the story to life for me. In These Happy Golden Years, Laura teaches her first class: five students, two families. And while the “Brewster” children are documented in other sources, the Harrison children are not. There are no census records, land deeds, or any official documents to support the identity of Charles and Martha as they are depicted in the novel. And so, it clicked. If Laura could fictionalize these people, well, then, so could I. Thus Martha Harrison was lifted from those pages, renamed Mariah, and given a new life and a new story in mine.

Writing Laura’s Shadow allowed me to indulge in a few favorite directions. First, I’m fascinated with the idea of extreme longevity (showcased in my novel All for a Song), and creating a character whose lifespan stretches from homesteading to disco was delightful. My Mariah chafes at the romanticized depiction of pioneer life, telling us in her old age that it was really more of a daily struggle for survival. I also enjoyed exploring the family dynamic of four generations of women and how each generation faced the  same battles and fought them so, so differently. Finally—and this is what truly speaks to my fourth-grade self…

You know that Elton John song, “Your Song” with the lyrics, “I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words…” Well, I got to put down in words my lifelong crush on Cap Garland. Sure, Almonzo is great and everything, but I always thought Cap was more exciting. More fun. More…more. Bringing him to life in this book set my old heart racing. My research for this novel took me to De Smet, and to his gravesite, where I spoke this story to his stone. I like to think he’d approve, and I hope all of the Laura fans will join me in this tale and let their imaginations run wild.

Review: A suspense filled chase. 

Amy accidentally captures a murder on film and finds herself in a dangerous game trying to stay one step ahead of the killer who knocked off her twin sister by mistake. 

A high octane read, action packed, as they unravel the twisting mystery of what the killer is trying to hide. There is definitely a lot going on in this book, and I liked that Amy kept her head throughout all the peril, despite everything that she had been through and all that had been revealed. 

A highly satisfying read with well developed characters, great relationship building, a mystery that kept me guessing, strong faith themes, and an unputdownable pace. You won't want to miss it!

I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

More from Sami

#Authorproblems   That’s what the excitement around Keith Young was…a problem—Kinda. Lol!

When I started to hear request for his story, I panicked. Authors don’t want to disappoint their readers. And being new to the published scene…Well, you get the picture. 😊

After the release of Buried Cold Case Secrets, many readers told me they wanted Keith’s story. In fact, the overwhelming response puzzled me. What had I done to create such a buzz about Jason’s partner? And of course, I had to ask why?

The general answer I received…Keith’s a nice guy and the perfect partner.

I have to admit, I got a little nervous since I had already written his story. And I worried if I’d done his character justice?

However, after writing Buried Cold Case Secrets, I knew Keith had to have his own story. He’s such a great guy and needed his happily ever after. So, I dove in and asked, what would happen if he made a huge mistake? Not just a physical one, but a heart one.

By the time I finished, I loved seeing Keith and Amy move past their poor choices and hurt to find acceptance and love. The perfect ending to Keith’s struggles.

All that to say, I hope you love Keith and Amy’s story as much as I do.  #TeamKeith
