Review of Silencing the Critic by Rosemary Hines

Posted by [email protected] on August 18, 2017 at 1:15 PM Comments comments (0)

In Silencing the Critic, Rosemary Hines, sets aside the lie of Not Being Good Enough. She backs up all her truths with Biblical scriptures and affirmations, that we can use daily to remind ourselves.

 

Satan uses the three C's of comparisons, complaints, and criticisms to make us feel not good enough. By applying perspective, prayer and praise, we can counter them.Rosemary teaches us the many names used for God and their Hebrew meanings.

 

If we keep the truths learned in this bible study before us and refer to them often, we can finally silence the critic. I would highly recommend Silencing the Critic as part of your growth in Christ.

Posted by [email protected] on August 11, 2017 at 2:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Second Life is built around the premise, What if two young children survived the Jonestown suicide of 1978? If so, what would their lives be like.

 

D.F.Bailey, weaves a daunting tale laced with fast paced action, intrigue, murder and an intense hunt for the killers. People on the list are dying at what appears to be accidental deaths, but Will Finch isn't buying it. After all, his name is on the list so he has a reason to be concerned.

 

The Second Life is a thrilling, fast paced read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Topped by a ending with a twist, I highly recommend it.

Review of 12 Saturdays by F.P. Lione

Posted by [email protected] on August 9, 2017 at 8:05 PM Comments comments (0)

Jenna Russo left all her family behind and disappeared into the city of Manhattan. She got a posh advertising job, new friends, and bought an apartment. She even got herself a classy and rich boyfriend. Then her world began to change. Her alcoholic father she hadn't seen in years, due to being in prison, was out and now was dying. Her terrible past had caught up with her again.

 

The author does an excellent job with well fleshed out characters. This is Jenna's story and her voice comes through loud and clear. She's bitter, but quirky.

 

Because of her father's dying wish, she is faced with a life change that she never saw coming. Everything she was sure of, she begins to question.

 

12 Saturdays is a story of healing and overcoming your past, trusting in God that he has a better future for you.

 

This was a very emotional read, so make sure you keep the tissues handy. I would highly recommend 12 Saturdays.

Review of Dear Viking by Lori Soard

Posted by [email protected] on August 9, 2017 at 1:10 AM Comments comments (0)


I decided to read Dear Viking on the recommendation from a friend.  I'm so glad that I did, as I enjoyed it very much.

Dear Viking is a powerful Christian Historical tale. It's a story filled with a Viking battles, hatred, greed, and a longing for revenge for an attempt on the father's life. Can two people from opposite cultures and beliefs thrown together during the worst of circumstances fall in love?

 

I wasn't sure how the author was going to insert a Christian aspect into a people known to kill without remorse, but was pleasantly surprised at how she handled it. The story line was wonderfully executed. The characters were very well fleshed out and the many layers of their depth became evident as the story progressed. I loved the show of Leani's bravery and unwavering faith in God. She was a beacon of light and very inspiring. RoK Erickson, the next in line to the Viking throne starts to question the Viking ways and his culture. Does he turn his back on tradition?

 

There were some surprising moments. I found myself engaged from the very beginning and couldn't put it down until I had finished it. Dear Viking is a very uplifting story with a happy ending that you would expect from a Christian read. I highly recommend it.

Review of The Prophet Conspiracy by Bowen Greenwood

Posted by [email protected] on August 3, 2017 at 11:45 PM Comments comments (0)

The Prophet Conspiracy is well written and the plot was great. It is a thriller laced with lots of suspense and plot twists. The characters are well fleshed out and I found myself rooting for Siobhan from the beginning.

 

Siobhan McLane, an American tourist, goes on a dig in Jerusalem in hopes of discovering an ancient artifact that will back up the conclusion to her thesis, which was stolen by her professor and made out to be his own. Her path to prove it takes a turn for the worse when she finds herself running from terrorists that want to kill her. Cameron Dorn, a tour guide, whom she met earlier in the story comes to her rescue. Together they try to outrun the people hunting them,

 

The story is filled with conspiracy, blackmail, and deception. The descriptions of Jerusalem and surrounding digs made me feel like I was right there. I look forward to reading more by this author. Highly recommended.

Review of Where Treasure Hides by Johnnie Alexander

Posted by [email protected] on July 31, 2017 at 2:15 AM Comments comments (0)


This is the first Christian Historical book I've read and I wasn't sure if I would like it or not, but WOW it beat any expectations I had. The author spins an excellent story of two people separated by circumstances beyond their control. One to the war, the other plagued by a so-called family curse.

 

Alison Schuyler, an artist from the Netherlands has a chance meeting at Waterloo Station where she meets a British Captain, Ian Devlin, who in a short time steals her heart. It is war time and they each go their separate ways, each wondering if they would see each other again. Alison helps in her family's art gallery trying to save precious art and then becomes involved with the Dutch Underground smuggling Jewish children out from under the Germans grasp. The characters were well fleshed out and I found myself immersed in the story line from the first chapter. It was so compelling, that I couldn't put it down. The story was fast paced and there seemed to be danger at every turn.

 

Where Treasure Hides is a clean, inspirational read with just the right amount of Christian faith added. I would highly recommend this to history, mystery or lovers of clean romance. I will definitely read more of her work.

Jeff Altabef's New Release- Ghost King- Get Your Copy Now!

Posted by [email protected] on July 24, 2017 at 1:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Welcome! Today I’m helping author Jeff Altabef launch his latest book, The Ghost King!

 

Wilky forced his eyes open, sat up in his bed, and breathed. The air came fast and hot. He should have been braver and lasted longer to see more of the vision, but he couldn’t watch anymore.

If only the images were part of a dream, he could try to forget them, but he knew better. He didn’t sleep much these days, and this nightmare was no dream; it was a vision that revealed flashes of the future.

Is that future set?

He hoped not. He hoped he could alter it, and thought he could, but he wasn’t sure how yet.

His sister slept in the bed next to his, curled around a wool blanket.

He wanted to spare Aaliss this future, but that would only happen if he tried harder and found another way. Until then, all he could do was shudder.

A future with light was the most important thing. Some sacrifices would be necessary for that future... and that light.

He strolled to the window. The first rays of dawn had not yet cut into the horizon.

Soon he would have to see the whole story. Soon he’d have to find the courage to know who would win the war, and how he would lead them to the light.

Soon, but not today.

He sighed and glanced back at his sister.

I must find a way.

Some sacrifices are too much.

I can’t let death take her. Piers was enough.


 

Who are Aalis, Wilkey & why are they going to war? Will there be more magic & mayhem in this second book? One of the best parts of this release is you can get both books for only 99c right now!

 


 


 

About the Book

Review of Ghost King by Jeff Altabef

Posted by [email protected] on July 24, 2017 at 1:40 PM Comments comments (0)





I received an ARC from the author and voluntarily choose to review it.

 

Ghost King, book 2 in the Red Death series is a fascinating read. The author's words paint a vivid picture of fantasy worlds that seem very real and his well fleshed out characters made me run the gamut of emotions while following them in their battles.

 

Wilkey and Aaliss together have the magic (good kind) to help save all three races, but until the final battle call, they really aren't aware of how important to the outcome they really are.

 

The story line is filled with deep love, betrayal, new found alliances, and unknown truths that come to light. Nothing is exactly as it appears to be. There were a few surprises woven into the tale that I didn't see coming. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

 

I would highly recommend this outstanding tale of good v/s evil-darkness and light, that leaves you wanting to read more. You will remember it long after the last page is turned.
