Dark Road Home

Dark Road Home (Edge of Freedom #2)Dark Road Home by Elizabeth Ludwig

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


 Ana Kavanagh is trying to reunite Eogahn Hamilton with his sister, Cara. But Ana has no idea of the danger that pursues both Eogahn and herself. Though deception and evil rage about them, Ana and Eogahn learn that they can trust their Heavenly Father.
  This is a very good book, equally as good as "No Safe Harbor". I really enjoyed the suspense and story plot. This is a very good book that I would definitely recommend to a friend.

Misery Loves Company

Misery Loves CompanyMisery Loves Company by Rene Gutteridge

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


 Juliet is totally consumed with grief after her husband is killed. She never leaves her house except briefly, and her only real connection with people is through her blog or facebook page. Then one day Juliet wakes up to find that she is a hostage in a strange house, and the last thing she remembers is chatting with her favorite author, Patrick Reagan, in the grocery store. Why is she  here, and what does her captor want from her?
  This book was a little creepy; an enjoyable amount of creepiness, however. I actually really enjoyed this book this book, despite my apprehensions about it from the beginnings. I have to say, this book is genius. I have never read anything quite like it. I love the amount of skill, creativity, and logic that Rene Cutteridge has poured into this story. This is just one of those books that is a true work of art. I could not put this book down, I literally read it in one sitting. 
   I would absolutely recommend this to any friend who enjoys a good mystery story.

Sherlock Holmes and the Needle's Eye

Sherlock Holmes and the Needle’s Eye:The World's Greatest Detective Tackles the Bible's Ultimate MysteriesSherlock Holmes and the Needle’s Eye:The World's Greatest Detective Tackles the Bible's Ultimate Mysteries by Len Bailey

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


 Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are challenged to solve ten Bible mysteries, and do so by traveling through time with "the needles eye": a extraordinary time travel device. Holmes and Watson will travel from Jericho to Bethlehem and personally witness incredible events of the Bible.
   I wasn't actually crazy about this book. Some of the ideas presented were interesting, but I thought that Sherlock Holmes fit very clumsily into this story and seemed un-characteristic of the classic Holmes. I also thought some of the writing was rather boring. Definitely not one of my favorites.

Trouble in Store

Trouble in StoreTrouble in Store by Carol Cox

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


  When Melanie Ross is fired from her position as a governess, she travels west to Arizona to work in her uncle's mercantile. But when she arrives, she discovers that her uncle is deceased and a young man named Caleb who believes he also has a claim on the mercantile is running things. Things get off to a bad start when Melanie insists that she owns half the mercantile, and Caleb makes no bones about the fact that he does not want her around. Things go from bad to worse when a stranger is found dead at the door of the mercantile, and no one knows who he is or why anyone would want to kill him. Melanie and Caleb must work together to save their business and discover what lies behind the mysterious happenings in the town.
  This book started off really slow for me. I thought the story seemed hurried and unrealistic, especially in the beginning. By the end, the mystery was intriguing enough to keep me reading and I even enjoyed it. Overall, this is not one of my favorite books, but if you enjoy romance with a little mystery on the side, this is a good book.

Gone South

Gone SouthGone South by Meg Moseley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


 When Tish McComb buys a beautiful old southern house, she daydreams about good neighbors and southern hospitality. But the town has plenty of misgivings concerning her ancestors, and Tish finds that she is not welcome in the little town. It doesn't help to endear her to her neighbors when she takes in a down-on-her-luck girl that no one trusts. Determined not to give up, Tish sets out to disprove some of the vicious rumors that are floating around town.
  For a chick-flick, this was a pretty good book. Admittedly, romance novels are not my favorite genre; but this book did have some redeeming qualities such as the authors affinity for fast cars! It was interesting to read a female author who mentioned such things as how much the girl loved the sound of the engine, or the gorgeous Corvette that I could almost picture as I read. Good book that I would recommend to any friend interested in love stories.
