the Christmas Swap By Melody Carlson

 This book was a thrill to read. It was cold, cozy and full of wonders. A family from Arizona swapped houses over the Christmas holiday and ended up in Colorado.  This book is full of warmth, love, skiing and enjoying the snow.  Emma's story and West's story will have a special touch.  I read Melody Carlson's Christmas books every year. They are wonderful, so grab some hot chocolate and curl up with this Christmas story. This book is a 5*.

Her Mother's Hope By Francine Rivers

 This story was beautiful. Getting ready to listen to another audio book as this was my first audio to read and loved it. This book went through so many emotions and I found it so inspirational. Francine Rivers is one of the best authors out there. A 5 star for sure. First book in a series.



Acceptable Risk By Lynette Eason

This is a fantastic read. Book 2 of the Series "Danger Never Sleeps". The story picks up pretty much where Book 1 ended.  Sarah Denning, was being held hostage overseas and once rescued she is back in America. Her love interest Army Ranger Gavin Black helps her find the truth out about her brother's death. Her father who she calls "General" and her are estranged.  Gavin helps put the pieces back together for her father and her. This book is full of suspense and inspiration.  Lynette Eason does it again! I received this book courtesy of Baker Publishing Group through Interviews and Reviews. I rate this a 5*.

Don't Keep Silent By Elizabeth Goddard

Elizabeth Goodard does it again! This story kept me on the edge of my seat.  It was a very moving story and hard to put down.  When I got to the final 30 pages or so I did not move. Rae was investigating her missing sister-in-law Zoey. She went to where Zoey was from and found out a lot of mysteries that Zoey never told her. She bumps into Liam and asks for his help. Rae and Liam have a strong connection and led them into a romantic relationship.  This book is a wonderful story. It leaves you in suspense with a wonderful ending. I received this book Courtesy of Baker Publishing Group through Interviews and Reviews.  This is a 5 Star book.

In Black and White By: MaryAnn Diorio


This story was very heartwarming, especially for the times we are in; in our lives right now. Tori, a student at Penn State meets Jebuni, a foreign exchange student from Ghana.  They become friends and eventually fall in love. They were not accepted and there were threats and harassment issues they had to deal with. Also, in Ghana Jebuni was to become the Chief of his Tribe and the elders would find a wife for him.  Tori and Jebuni get married and eventually she moves to Ghana after their studies at Penn State were done.  Her father had disowned her and she was pleased that she was now accepted in Ghana.  This story continues on and ends with a happy note but my heart still stirred because we are all from Adam and Eve. God loves all of us. We are not picked out by color we are all his children. I am blessed to be one of his children. This is a 5* book.

Amish Knitting Circle in Holmes County By Karen Anna Vogel

I loved reading about Granny Weaver. She is so like my own Oma was. Granny Weaver made things fall in place while visiting some of her family in Holmes County, OH. She started a knitting/crocheting circle. Something she has back home. The story was full of emotion and inspiration. I enjoyed it very much.
