BOOK REVIEW – Weather the Storm – Lisa Mondello – Rising Storm, Episode 7

Weather the Storm


This episode was really well written.  It mostly centered around Pastor Bryce Douglas trying to come to terms with his son Danny’s Autism diagnosis and accepting the different things that have to go into their plan of helping Danny cope with starting school.  He and Tara make a good start in getting their marriage back on track as well.

There is also further drama with Senator Sebastian Rush and his mistress Dakota Alvarez.  Lots of explosive secrets are starting to be figured out.  Can’t wait to see what happens next week in the final Episode of this season.

BOOK REVIEW – A Love To Last – Kelsey Browning

A Love To Last


I’m hooked!  This is Book 1 in the Prophecy of Love series, and I already can’t wait to read more.  Great job of weaving a small town chemistry that makes us fall in love with the thought of what has been, and what’s yet to come.  I laughed, I cried, and I wished for the fairy tale kind of love that burns even through years of separation.  Great read!

Cal Maddox walks into his dad’s boot shop and sees the one woman he has never forgotten.  Delaney Shields is only stopping through Prophecy, TX for a quick check on Whit Maddox and never expected to see Cal.  Last she heard, he was traveling the world in the military.  He had no clue his dad had kept in such close contact with Delaney all these years.

Whit is determined to get Delaney to stay in town and take over his boot shop for him.  He told her years ago that she was the next Prophecy bootmaker, and if she won’t stay, the magic ends and the town falls apart.  Delaney doesn’t want to admit that she can see the boots in her mind.  If she does, then she’s locked into settling down, and as she proved when she walked out on Cal all those years ago, she’s not the staying kind.

Will she and Cal admit they still love each other or will she ride off into the sunset again?  Can she ever believe that she’s worth being loved after the past she’s had and let herself actually be happy?

BOOK REVIEW – A Moment to Love – Jennifer Faye

A Moment to Love


I really enjoyed this book!  Jennifer Faye did a wonderful job of creating Whistle Stop, New Mexico into a town you want to visit and settle into yourself.  I can’t wait to delve in even further with the next book 🙂

Cord Lawson is a rancher living a very solitary life.  He feels like the town doesn’t like him because of past experiences with them.  He’s now on the verge of having his ranch foreclosed on by the bank unless he can come up with the money to pay the balloon payment on the loan.  He’s trying to sell part of his land, but so far has had no interest.

Alexis Greer is a land developer from New York City.  She comes to town because she saw the listing for Cord’s land and is very interested, but there was a mistake in the listing and and the land that she’s wanting, is the part that he has no intention of selling because of family history.

Cord and Lexi are drawn to each other.  They each want the other to bend into doing things the way they want them with the deal, but can’t fight the attraction they are feeling for each other all the while.  Will they be able to find a solution that lets them both get they want?  And when all is said and done, will they have a future together?

Jordan and Ty are finally together, as in living together—mortgage and all. Now they intend to enjoy a little down time. They’ve purchased an aging horse ranch with plans to renovate, but their domestic bliss is put on hold when Ty is called in to investigate a murder case.

Coincidentally, an unusually graphic nightmare about a young college student’s murder catches Jordan by surprise. In the dream, Jordan can see the girl’s pretty blonde hair. She can see the snowy ravine the girl was strangled in. Most shockingly, this time she can even see the killers face.

Being at home and still on vacation is making it challenging to figure out how to connect with this latest victim, until Jordan visits Ty’s precinct and recognizes a young man in interrogation as the murderer.

When Ty insists the suspect is innocent, Jordan debates just how far into Ty’s career she can interfere. Influencing another cop’s investigation on the basis of a dream is a line she’s never dared to cross. Even if the other cop is the man she loves.

Making the situation all the more frustrating is the sexy, red-headed Isobel Riley from Missouri Highway Patrol who is partnering with Ty for the duration of the case. And Isobel is a lot more than a mere detective consultant—she’s Ty’s ex-lover.

RELEASE BLAST/BOOK REVIEW/GIVEAWAY – Wishes for Christmas – Fern Michaels

Wishes for Christmas


This book is broken into 3 parts.  They each tell their own story, but there is some connection of characters along the way.  I found the first part to be hard to follow, but the 2nd two parts were good and had a nice story to each of them.

And the Angels Sing
This part of the book isn’t exactly easy to follow.  I think there’s a lot of backstory in previous books about a Sisterhood, that probably have you knowing about each character, but in this particular one, they are a group of middle aged to older women and men who refer to each other as “Sisters” and “the boys”.  They team up to help Maggie do a good deed for something she feels guilty about doing or not doing in the past.  They track down a former teacher of Maggie’s and set about making her dreams come true through helping the less fortunate.

Naughty or Nice
This part centers around Teresa Amelia Loudenberry, Toots to her family and friends. and around those near and dear to her.  They are preparing for Charleston’s annual holiday showcase of historical homes.  When something arises surrounding one of the decorators working on her daughter’s home, they all rally around to help out and find some answers for this woman and her 3 kids.

A Golden Tree
This part centers around Holly Simmons and her families Inn.  She hires on a temporary assistant to help with the holiday rush.  Both of their grandfathers have recently gone to live at the Haven, where strange things are happening.  We see Toots and her friend Sophie pop up in this book to help investigate the Haven.

Once the storm passes, Jake is taken back into custody and heads off to testify.  Will they be able to forget each other and the night they shared in her barn?
