About the Book:
Strong-willed Tirzah wants to join her people in driving the enemy from the land of Israel and undergoes training for a secret mission inside the stronghold of Shechem. But soon after she has infiltrated the ruthless Aramean commander's kitchen, she makes a reckless decision that puts her and her allies in grave danger.

Fresh off the battlefield, Liyam returns home to discover his beloved daughter is dead. After his vow to hunt down her killer leads to months of fruitless pursuit, his last hope is in a family connection that comes with strings attached--strings that force him to pose as a mercenary and rescue an infuriating woman who refuses to leave her mission uncompleted.

When an opportunity to pave a path to a Hebrew victory arises, can Tirzah convince Liyam to fight alongside her in the refuge city of her birth? Or will Liyam's thirst for vengeance outweigh his duty to his people, his God, and the woman he's come to love?
My Thoughts:
Oh my goodness.We have reached the end of this wonderful series! I'm so happy with how this story unfolded and progressed through these books, but I'm also so sad that it has ended! This series has just been one I could let myself sink into and disappear into this time with these people and just get lost for a little while. It was a fabulous journey!

Now I've mourned over the end and gushed over this series, let me tell you why this last book was a cherry on the top this marvelous series!

Connilyn Cossette has a wonderful talent for writing about very strong women characters, but also very strong men characters. Her cast is one of balance and allows their strengths and weakness of each to be shown and highlighted.

In Like Flames in the Night, we follow Tirzah, we have been introduced to her in previous stories. She comes from a very strong and prominent family. She is brought to attention of this story in a very powerful way, with her lack of fear and determination to protect who she is with, but with faith in the protection she knows she is surrounded in. The opening of this book really did set up this story beautifully and it showcased in this book, how God is there to use both men and women to bring in glory and promises.

This story is one that touches on many things. It isn't just about bravery and spies and adventures, it deals with heartache, love, and healing. There are some tough issues Tirzah and Liyam deal with in this story, and the way it unfolded was fantastic and gripping.

Though this is the end of the series, the way that this story wraps up and brings joy to this family, that was originally punished in the first book, is a beautiful conclusion. This book has allowed this story to come full circle and shine a light and it shows, that once was thought as something bad, can in fact lead to an even better path then you could imagine.

I had a hard time putting this book down.  The writing was phenomenal. The setting and the people made you feel apart. This is a series I can go back and re-read over and over again.

I was able to download this story and listen to some of it on Audible....and goodness, the narrator, Rachel Botchen is the voice of this series. The audio of this book is one that can transport you.

This was a fabulous read all around!

Review: Veiled In Smoke by Jocelyn Green

March 2, 2020

Title: Veiled In Smoke
Author: Jocelyn Green
Publisher: Bethany House
Pages: 416
ISBN: 9780764233302
Publication Date: February 4th, 2020

About the Book:
The Flames Took So Much.She Can't Lose Her Father As Well.

Meg Townsend and her sister, Sylvie, seek a quiet existence managing the family bookshop. Meg feels responsible for caring for their father, Stephen, whose spirit and health are both damaged from his time as a prisoner during the Civil War. Her one escape is the paintings she creates and sells in the bookshop.

Then the Great Fire sweeps through Chicago's business district. The fiery explosions and chaos stir up memories of war for Stephen as he runs from the blaze and becomes separated from his daughters. Days later, when the smoke has cleared, Meg and Sylvie manage to reunite with him. Their home and shop are lost, and what's left among the ashes may be even more threatening than the flames, for they learn that a close friend was murdered the night of the fire--and Stephen has been charged with the crime. After he is committed to the Cook County Insane Asylum, where they cannot visit him, Stephen feels as lost to them as the shop that now lies in rubble.

Though homeless and suddenly unemployed, Meg must not only gather the pieces of her shattered life but prove the truth of what happened that night, before the asylum truly drives her father mad.
My Thoughts:
I look forward to this time of year. Not because of spring, oh no, it's book season! Several of my favorite authors are releasing new books and it is the most wonderful time. One of my all time favorite authors, Jocelyn Green, just released her newest book. And goodness, what a story it was!

I've only read one other historical fiction book on the Great Chicago Fire and it was very interesting. I was excited to see how the story in Veiled in Smoke would play out. I was not disappointed!

Veiled in Smoke was a book that had the Chicago Fire as the main focus of the story, but the characters we follow deal with so much from before the fire all the way through the rebuild. This book was one that yes, focused on a huge tragedy, but it also a book that brought other historical tragedies into the spotlight as well. The Chicago fire took place not long after the Civil War ended. The men that survived are back home with their families, some fully, some only in body. Their minds were elsewhere.

Meg and Sylvie are two grown sisters doing their best to get by running a bookstore and painting. They lost their mom a few years back, and their dad who served in the war is home, but has been injured mentally.

Having been dealt a hard blow to the family, Meg and Sylvie are close, but they are complete opposites in every fashion. They each view things differently and when that happens, like it does in many families, it can cause tension, when thrown into a huge stressful situation on top of it, family ties are tested. Jocelyn Green was able to write and portray this struggle so well. It is something so many people have gone through, in some form or fashion, and you can see both sides of it when reading this book.

Stephen, Meg and Sylvie's father has lived a hard life during the war. During this time, PTSD wasn't known about, wasn't studied, other then they didn't come back fully from the war and suffered a soldier's heart. Reading about Stephen and the struggles he faced and the internal battles he fights is heartbreaking. This is a struggle that many battle now and Jocelyn Green was able to spotlight the importance of care for someone who has been mentally hurt. You hurt for Stephen and the circumstance he is thrown into and for his family who are battling it in their own way. The emotional connection is strong with this story in so many ways.

Nate Pierce was the strength and the steady head in a lot of this book. He was a reporter. He was after the truth and seeking out details. He tried to not let emotions get to him, but he offered a whole new perspective and visual then what Meg and Sylvie and their father had. He brought a balance to the story. He brought a unique look of the outsider, who wasn't affected by the fire personally, but it affected him through others.

There is so much growth and depth in these characters. The background for this book is one that can be dark and depressing, but Jocelyn Green is able to write in and bring this story to one of hope.

I'm so glad that this is the first book in this saga, I enjoyed getting to know the Townsend family and I wasn't ready to say good-by.

This was just a stunning book in so many way.

Hometown Healing Blog Tour w/ Expert (Just Read Tours & Giveaway)

February 23, 2020

Hometown Healing JustRead Blog Tour 
Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour & Giveaway for Hometown Healing by Jennifer Slattery, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!

ABOUT THE BOOK

Hometown Healing by Jennifer Slattery Title: Hometown Healing
Author: Jennifer Slattery
Publisher: Love Inspired
Release Date: August 1, 2019
Genre: Inspirational Contemporary Romance

She’s home again, but not for long… Unless this cowboy recaptures her heart.

Returning home with a baby in tow, Paige Cordell’s determined her stay is only temporary. But to earn enough money to leave, she needs a job—and her only option is working at her first love’s dinner theater. With attraction once again unfurling between her and Jed Gilbertson, can the man who once broke her heart convince her to stay for good?





EXCERPT:

Paige Cordell felt as if she had regressed back to that awkward, frizzy-haired bookworm who’d left Sage Creek, Texas, fourteen years ago. With no intention of ever returning.
And yet here she was. As a divorced, unemployed, single mother no less.
Nothing screamed failure like sitting in Mom’s driveway, with all of her belongings crammed into a U-Haul hitched to her car.
She glanced back at little Ava, sleeping soundly in her car seat. She looked so peaceful, with  her rosy cheeks, the halo of red curls and the slight part of her lips. As if she hadn’t just spent nearly an hour fussing, not that Paige could blame her. They’d had quite the drive. Traffic, work zones, an accident just outside of Houston.
Her phone rang. Paige glanced at the screen. It was Mira, her old high school friend.
“Hey.”
“Just checking you made it into town okay. And to see if maybe you’d like to stop by my place for a nice, cold milkshake.”
“Just got in.” She explained the reason for her three-hour delay. “And though I appreciate the offer, I’m wiped.”
“I imagine.”
“And discouraged. I know I’ll find another job eventually…”
“Have you prayed about it?” Mira’s statement sliced through Paige like an accusation. “Might help.”
“Please don’t talk religion to me. Not today.” She believed in God. But unlike her friend, she didn’t find comfort in tossing every decision up to Him.
Besides, she and God hadn’t exactly been on the best terms as of late.
“Well, like I said, this is only a hiccup.” Mira’s overly perky pep talk wasn’t helping. “Consider this an extended vacation.”
“I can’t believe Ardell let me go. I mean, I get budget cuts, but why me? I was a high performer. I never missed a deadline, pitched great article ideas…”
“You’ll find something even better, with more job security.”
Paige inhaled a fortifying breath. “You’re right.” She’d never allowed setbacks to discourage her before, and she had no intention of starting now. “Maybe even for a better magazine, with a larger readership.”
Only, Chic Fashions was about as big as they came. Not only was it Chicago’s premier fashion publication, but it was considered the top in the nation. She’d worked long and hard to land a position with them, only to end up jobless and living with her mother.
The antithesis of adulthood.
She glanced at Mom’s single-story brick house, heavily shadowed by a towering oak. Thick roots snaked through the grass, and a handful of dandelions dotted the lawn. The windows were dingy, like they hadn’t been washed in…ever, and the canary-yellow trim was beginning to peel.
Other than that, the place seemed well-kept, and the yard had been mowed, which was surprising if her sister were right about how much Mom struggled. Hopefully Paige’s arrival would help pull Mom out of this phase she was in.
A blur of red seeped into her peripheral vision, and she shifted to watch a shiny red pickup truck pull into the adjacent driveway.
Her pulse spiked as a tall, broad-shouldered man dressed in jeans, boots, and a cowboy hat stepped out and then turned her way. “Seriously? Could this day get any worse?” she muttered.
“Why? What happened?”
With the phone still pressed to her ear, she sank farther into her seat, with no intention of leaving her vehicle. At least, not until Jed Gilbertson was no longer standing less than fifty feet away. Staring at her.
She turned to the box of office junk on the seat beside her to avoid making eye contact. “Jed just pulled up at his grandmother’s.” It’d been too long, and her heart had been too shattered, for him to still have such a pull on her.
“I thought you were over him.”
So did she.

Personal Update

February 10, 2020

I don't usually share personal things on my blog. I like the anonymity. I'm a shadow lurker by nature, always with a book in hand. 

Even though I live for being a person of discretion, when something of the personal nature comes up that affects my blogging, I have to share about it. 

My blogging as of late has been sketchy with the timing I know. Life has just up-heaved me in all directions. We finally moved into the house we were building at the end of October, beginning of November. I know that is the time when my blogging tanked.

Well, a couple of weeks before that, I found out I was expecting!
You are reading this now as I'm sitting in the middle of my 2nd trimester. 
Baby W is due in June 2020.
(Baby @ 9 weeks)
Baby W is the reason my blogging has tanked in the recent weeks/months. 

With my first child, I was diagnosed with Hyperemesis Garvidirum and I have it again with baby #2.
People call it extreme morning sickness....that is actually very far from the truth. Crackers and ginger do nothing to touch this illness. My body fights the pregnancy. My HCG levels are more than double what a normal singleton pregnancy is and because of that my body reacts in a very negative way. 

I'm currently on several anti-nausea meds to help combat this illness. They are the same ones that they give to cancer patients. But, they don't always work. The meds help in keeping me from being as sick as what I can be, but I'm still nauseous all day, everyday. Eating is the last thing on my mind. I suffer from severe aversions. It's a battle to drink. As a lot of things don't stay down long. Weight loss is hitting hard (usually not a bad thing, except for now) my doctor is closely monitoring it and with that exhaustion has set in. It takes a lot of energy to go to work every day. I've become anemic with an iron deficiency. My protein levels are low. So we have to watch organ functions. This condition can affect kidneys, liver, and the heart. I'm thankful I have so much support. I was far away from my family when I had my daughter, so this is a whole new experience. A bit harder medically speaking, but so much easier being close to loved ones and having everyone I need right by me.

I'm very thankful that I'm not as bad as some women who battle this. As I write this, I have yet to need to go to the hospital for fluids, it's been close, which is something that is regular with HG. I had to a couple of times with my daughter. 

Hyperemesis was brought to the spotlight in the last few years in part of the Kate Middleton in England suffering with it and also comedian Amy Shumer. 

This is the condition that killed Charlotte Bronte. She wasted away due to being pregnant. Thankfully, medical science has come a long way, but sadly, HG is one that is still not widely known about. Only about 2% of  pregnant women will suffer with this and it is something that can be passed down genetically. 

If you would like to read up more on Hyperemesis, you can follow the link provided.
The HER Foundation is the leading site in sharing the knowledge of HG and the research behind it.

I thankfully I have a very knowledgeable doctor assisting me with all of this. It is a trial and error trying to figure out a medication combo that will help tame the illness and nausea that will allow me to freely eat and drink again. 
However, if you could spare some prayers for relief and rest, I would be forever grateful.
Baby W is healthy. I'm very grateful about that.

I will blog about books still, but it may not be as prolific as I once was as we get closer to summer, but I'm still here. 
I will also give some updates on Baby W as I go. 

If you have made it this far in reading, bless you!
I wish I had a cookie to give you.

Now, for some fun news!
We found out the gender of Baby W!

Drum-roll please.........


Baby W is a boy!

Despite all of the sickness, we are beyond thrilled.

Thank you for visiting.
 I know it isn't the normal books news, but I'll be back to that soon. :-) 


Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette (Audio Book Review)

February 3, 2020

Title: Until the Mountains Fall
Author: Connlyn Cossette
Series: Cities of Refuge, Bk 3
Publisher: Bethany House
Narrator: Rachel Botchen
Narration Time: 11hrs & 32mins
Publication Date: July 2nd, 2019

About the Book:
Recently widowed, Rivkah refuses to submit to the Torah law compelling her to marry her husband's brother and instead flees Kedesh, hoping to use her talents as a scribe to support herself. Without the protection of her father, Kedesh's head priest, and the safety of the city of refuge, Rivkah soon discovers that the cost of recklessness is her own freedom.

Malakhi has secretly loved Rivkah for years, but he never imagined his older brother's death would mean wedding her. After her disappearance, he throws himself into the ongoing fight against the Canaanites instead of dwelling on all he has lost. But with war looming over Israel, Rivkah's father comes to Malakhi with an impossible request.

As the enemies that Rivkah and Malakhi face from within and without Israel grow more threatening each day, is it too late for the restoration their wounded souls seek?
My Thoughts:
I have loved this series. I love how these books have built off of each other and have introduced us to characters that were only in the background at first and have brought them forward and have given them such depth.

Rivkah and Malakhi's story was one that was intense, but not in a bad way mind you! They each had their own growing to do in their own way. The choices that they made, or had made for them, shaped who they become through this story. It is an interesting progression to watch. The story unfolds in a way I didn't see coming in some, and ways I was hoping for in others.

Rivkah is a girl, thinking her life is set before her, but that isn't the case when her young husband dies. The choices that were made for her, in accordance to the law, were not what she wanted. Her decisions led her down a path that was hard. Her story is heartbreaking and hope-filled in many other ways. There were times that I wanted to shake her and ask, what the heck were you thinking?!

Malakhi, goodness, he is one we really see go through changes. He is one you can't help but root for, but also mourn with. He has a passion that is deep. He has his own personal demons to fight, and trying to prove his worth, or so he thinks.

These two characters are ones that I was amazed at the transformation of who they were through out.This was a story I had a hard time stopping.

I read this book through Audible, hello mutitasking! I honestly would have been useless if I had sat down with the book, till I was done reading it. Rachel Botchen has become a favorite narrator, her voice is one that is lyrical to listen to and it helps you get caught up in the story more. 

I'm so very happy that there is still one more book in this series, it releases soon! Book 4, Like Flames in the Night will releases in March 2020. I honestly can't wait to see how this series wraps up.

The detail and history of these Cities of Refuge was so new to me when I first dove in this series, but the information gleaned from this and the research it has lead me to do, I'm forever grateful for. This is some fantastic Old Testament history.

Review: An Uncommon Woman by Laura Frantz

January 31, 2020

Title: An Uncommon Woman
Author: Laura Frantz
Publisher: Revell
Pages: 384
ISBN: 9780800734954
Publication Date: January 7th, 2020

About the Book:
Unflinching and plainspoken, Tessa Swan is not your typical eighteenth-century woman. Born and bred on the western Virginia frontier along with her five brothers, she is a force to be reckoned with.

Quiet and courageous, Clay Tygart is not your typical eighteenth-century man. Raised by Lenape Indians, he returns a hero from the Seven Years' War to the fort that bears his name, bringing with him Tessa's long-lost friend, Keturah, who disappeared from the settlement years earlier.

Determined to avoid any romantic entanglements as fort commander, Clay remains aloof whenever he encounters the lovely Tessa. But when circumstances force Clay's hand--and heart--the stage is set for one very private and one very public reckoning.
My Thoughts:
Laura Frantz is one of those authors for me, that once I find out she has a book coming out, it's a count down till I can get my hands on it to devour it.

An Uncommon Woman was a book that was worth the wait! Goodness. The story, the characters, the history, the sweet romance, they all paired so well. The story flowed and when it ended, I was sad! I was not read to leave this world that Tessa and Clay lived in. It was so rich and vibrant. You could see this story playing out as you read it.

Tessa is such a unique character. She has grown up in house bustling with brothers. She helps her mom, she helps with the families trade of running the ferry, she also helps in protecting her family from attacks. She is a true frontier woman.She also is a woman who possess a wise knowledge from living where she has and one who knows to think in a very trying situation. Reading her story was so interesting.

Clay Tygart, goodness, this man has such a wide background that contradicts its self, but he is a man makes it work. They offer strengths to his job, which is is immensely proud of and does to the best of his ability. He is a warrior and a gentleman.

When Clay and Tessa are put together, they story just ignites!

And what brings Clay and Tessa together is such an interesting part. Keturah, who was Tessa's girlhood friend. She was taken to be raised with a Lenape and had forgotten the world she came from. Clay was the bridge between the two worlds for her and allowed Tessa to connect again. Keturah, is also not who she first appears to be. As her story unfolds and mixes with Tessa and Clay's it expanded the world to a whole new level. It made me think about how different, but similar Keturah and Tessa are and what kind of imprint they leave on the people around them.

The research for this story was just phenomenal. Reading this story made me so interested in finding out more on these tribes that were mentioned. This story really piqued my interest in the history of this time.

I downloaded this story as well from Audible. I have come to love the flexibility that audio books bring. I didn't have to put down this book. I could multi task. There was no way to put down An Uncommon Woman, it kept me immersed. The narrator, Aimee Lilly has such a lyrical voice that allowed the story to just flow.

This was such a fabulous story. It is one I could re-read over and over again.
