Coming Attractions~ A Katie Weldon Novel

This book review is for the novel "Coming Attractions" by Robin Jones Gunn. It is the third book in the Katie Weldon series.

I have long read the novels of Robin Jones Gunn and they have long had an honored place on my bookcase.
I love her books! And always greet the news of a new one coming with much anticipation and excitement!
My excitement for this third book and the new fourth book in this series was no less and once again, Robin, did not disappoint.

With graduation swiftly approaching, Katie Weldon, is caught up with the roller coaster that is her final weeks in college. Fighting a horrible cold and never getting to see her boyfriend, Rick, adds to her inner turmoil.

Katie has waited on Rick and dreamed of him and a what a relationship with him would be like since they attended high school together.

With her dream finally realised and them as a couple on what they consider a correct path, what could go wrong? They have done everything they can, to do the right thing and have already decided to let the relationship remain in their relaxed mode until after Katie graduates. Graduation looms as that mark of things to come, milestones to encounter and possibly a long term lifetime commitment for the two of them.

As Katie travels this rolling road, small road signs and then much larger ones seem to be pointing her in a direction that leads directly away from Rick and that commitment that she wants but doesn't.

Will Katie trust God to lead her where she needs to be and to WHOM she needs to be with? Dive into book three and find out!

Happy week to you all!

A Lasting Impression~Tamera Alexander~Blog Tour

This book review is for the novel "A Lasting Impression" by Tamera Alexander.

This novel held special appeal for me as it is set in Nashville.

I relished it's length and could easily imagine that beauty that is Belmont.
Anyone who appreciates a colorful tale and a book that will suck you in and keep you turning pages until the very end will fall in love with this book!

Claire Laurent is an accomplished artist. Not exactly in her own right but in the style of someone else. Her father has convinced her of the need to carry on her mother's work. That of forging famous paintings which he then sales.

What Claire longs for is to be signing her own name on her own genuine work of art but she sees it as an impossible dream.

Through dire circumstances Claire finds herself employed by a woman of great means and a love for art that is seemingly almost unparalleled.

The mistress of Belmont has an attorney on staff named Sutton and Claire's greatest fear yet deepest desire is for them all to know the truth of what she was. Forger is no longer the cloak she wishes to wear but until she reveals the truth she is swaddled in the cloak of deceit.

Stunning imagery and story. Cannot recommend it enough!

Hope your weeks are all amazing and that Thanksgiving was tasty! ;)

Remembering You~Tricia Goyer~ Blog Tour

This book review is for the novel Remembering You by Tricia Goyer.

Tricia's novel leaps off the page and wraps you in the telling of a beautiful story. She weaves all the ends together seamlessly and beautifully.

Ava Ellington finds herself, quite unexpectedly, the not so reluctant travel companion for her Grandfather as he goes on a final tour of Europe. Meeting up with all his friends from the war they are doing a final tour of all the World War II battle sites that they fought on as young men.

Ava sees this as a chance to redeem herself at her job as a producer. She has long been struggling to captivate audiences, as she once did, with great stories. Everything she throws out is garbage.

Her grandfather sees this as perhaps his last hurrah and isn't thrilled with the thought of a camera being shoved in his and his friends faces as they relieve what can be painful memories of their youth.

Add to this the tension of a fight that has not been resolved and you have the making of an interesting journey.

Ava has been battling the pain of a failed relationship and what she seems to singularly view as failing at her life thus far.

Everything for her is up in the air and this Europe trip was like a life line to a drowning person.

What she doesn't realize until after she has set foot on the beautiful European soil, is that her FIRST love is also accompanying his Grandfather on this tour.

Journey along with Ava as she not only discovers what helped her Grandfather become the man he is today, but perhaps discover a few things about herself along this journey.

Love For "Love On The Line"

This review is for the novel "Love on the Line" by Deeanne Gist.

This is a historical fiction novel and it is great!
I highly recommend you check it out asap!

I normally love the books Deeanne writes and was super excited to be able to be a part of the blog tour for this particular novel.

One of the things I really enjoyed about this book is learning some things about how telephones and the lines worked back in the day.  It was very interesting to read just for that alone. The story is also great!
There was plenty of action while still having romance entwined throughout it. The book will keep you wondering and intrigued.

Georgie is a super independent switchboard operator in a rural county. She has her own house and a loyal love for birds. Her garden has been made into an oasis for the creatures. She is as fiercely protective of them as she is of her own independence. That makes the appearance of Luke Palmer in "her" town and "her" telephone business even more disturbing and annoying. She doesn't need this man telling her how to run this business!

Luke Palmer, better known as Lucious Landrum, isn't sure how he is going to work being a telephone repairmen. He knows nothing about doing it, but is determined to succeed if that's what it takes to catch the train robbers he is after.
What he didn't happen to bargain on was a spitfire by the name of Georgie.

She is as fascinating to him as she is frustrating. Neither knows what to make of the other but they are forced to work together. Sparks will fly but they might not be the romantic kind.
