Review and Giveaway: Who I Am with You by Robin Lee Hatcher



To Purchase
About:

For these two broken hearts, the first step toward love will be a huge leap of faith.


Jessica Mason isn’t looking for love when she meets Ridley Chesterfield. Instead she is still reeling from the tragic, unexpected loss of her husband and daughter—and awaiting the arrival of her unborn child. Harboring the secret of her husband’s betrayal, her pain is deeper than anyone knows.

Ridley Chesterfield is hiding out in Hope Springs, Idaho, avoiding a political scandal and the barrage of false media headlines that have tarnished his good name. The last thing Ridley wants is a relationship—but when fate leads Ridley to form a friendship with his reclusive and pregnant neighbor, he wonders if this small-town hideout might be more of a long-term destination. 

When Jessica begins to read her great-grandfather’s Bible, she finds a connection with a man she never knew. Somehow the verses he marked and the words he wrote in the margins open her heart to healing. And as Ridley and Jessica help each other forgive the people who have broken their hearts, they must decide if the past will define them or if they will choose to love again.

Who I Am with You weaves together a modern-day romance with Jessica’s great-grandfather’s story from the 1930s, reminding us that some truths can cross generations and that faith has the power to transform families forever.


Who I Am with You is the first book in Robin’s new “A Legacy of Faith” series.

My Thoughts:

Who I Am with You, is a novel that tackles some very difficult life situations. Widowed and pregnant, Jessica Mason has lost both her husband and daughter in a tragic accident and before that she had also lost her marriage due to her husband’s betrayal. Now pregnant and alone she has shut herself off from the world as much as she can.

Ridley Chesterfield knows something about betrayal in a different way. His life has been tossed upside down as he has been blamed for a political scandal and his name has been dragged through the mud by the media twisting the truth and lies. Needing to get away, he escapes to his parent’s vacation home which just happens to be next door to Jessica’s.

Ridley and Jessica find themselves in similar situations; both trying to hide from the world and go it alone. However, we and they were never meant to be alone so what we have is a tender story full of heartbreak of two people finding their way back into life, friendship, and love -a bit wiser, wearier, but also stronger and more hopeful.

I enjoyed how their relationship unfolded and hurt for both due to their circumstances and cheered when they decided to trust each other. The backdrop of this story has to do with Jessica’s great-grandfather’s Bible and the many scriptures underlined and the notes taken. We see Andrew’s story unfold in the late 1920’s and 1930’s and his memorable story is not without heartbreak either.

This story has strong themes of love and forgiveness, in particular learning the hard lessons of forgiving and loving no matter what, taking marriage vows seriously, and trusting God to hold you in His hand no matter what life throws at you or who betrays you.  I look forward to more of this series as the Bible continues to be passed to those who need it the most.

Review: The Marriage Bargain by Stephanie Dees



To Purchase

About:

Falling for her convenient groom

Family Blessings lead to new beginnings

Jules Sheehan will do anything to keep custody of the two orphaned girls in her care—including a marriage of convenience with their uncle. Cam Quinn crosses the globe as a travel writer, but he’s ready to settle down. Now tough, tender Jules is offering the home he’s secretly longed for. Can this marriage in name only become a family of the heart?

My Thoughts:


The Marriage Bargain is the final Sheehan sibling’s story and this one focuses on younger sister Jules. One of the things I really like about this series is that each time we come to a new book, some time has passed. Jules has had a really tough time as she is trying to adopt her late best friend, Glory’s two little girls. However, two family members stand in her way, the grandmother-who is not a really nice person, and Cameron Quinn, Glory’s older brother.

Cameron is headed back to his hometown, a place that holds very unhappy memories for him to care for his nieces after his sister’s and brother-in-law tragic deaths. Cameron is searching for home and a family that he can call his own, and for people who will love him for him. When he meets his nieces, he knows he is sticking around to get to know them, but he did not realize how he would be sticking around.

This is a modern day marriage of convenience story and I thought it was outstanding. Jules proposes her crazy scheme to Cameron that they should marry to keep the girls with them- safe and protected. What follows is a family that has been thrown together through awful circumstances and they must learn the new normal. I enjoyed watching Cameron and Jules navigate sudden parenthood of a baby and a three year old, while also trying to find out how they fit into each other’s lives now that they were spouses.

Author Dees does not give them an easy time of things either. Their love develops and grows amongst the trials and tribulations that are continuously thrown their way and they both must decide if their marriage is for keeps. This whole series is one for the keeper shelf and I have enjoyed every single one of them.

Review: Their Secret Baby Bond by Stephanie Dees



About:

To Purchase
He wanted roots. She chose career.
Can a baby bring them back together?

Wynn Sheehan planned to change the world—not return to Alabama alone and pregnant. Her life is in shambles, but at least she can help take care of Latham Grant’s ailing grandpa. Latham isn’t ready to trust the woman who eagerly left him and their small town behind. But can they ignore the spark rekindled by unexpected Family Blessings?

My Thoughts:

Continuing in the Sheehan family series and now that the brothers are happily married, author Dees now turns her attention to the sisters’ stories starting with Wynn.  Wynn has come back home with dashed dreams, a broken heart, and an unexpected pregnancy. Wynn left her hometown with stars in her eyes and aspirations to make a difference in DC, unfortunately things didn’t turn out the way she would have liked. Wynn was broken in spirit and was not quite sure what to expect when she came home pregnant and unmarried. But much to her surprise, her family welcomes her with open arms and so does the man whose heart she broke ten years previous.

Latham has come back home with an unfinished degree to take care of his grandfather after the sudden death of his grandmother. Latham has never stopped loving Wynn since she ran away from him on her graduation night. Knowing her dreams are beyond him, he still hopes that she will choose him over anything else. Latham certainly gave Wynn room and I understood his reluctance to hand his heart back over to Wynn.

This was another sweet love story of two people finding themselves, each other, and letting their dreams go for a much better plan. I have immensely enjoyed getting to know this family and watching the characters grow through their joys and trials. This is a good family drama series.

Review: On Magnolia Lane Denise Hunter

To Purchase
About:

From the bestselling author of The Convenient Groom (now a beloved Hallmark Original movie) comes the final book in Hunter’s Blue Ridge Romance series.

Pastor Jack McReady has secretly carried a torch for Daisy for two long years. She’s a member of his congregation, after all, and she’ll never see him as more than a trusted counselor. Jack’s best friend Noah has taken every opportunity to encourage his lovesick friend, but when Noah catches wind that Daisy has joined an online dating site, he takes matters into his own hands and orchestrates a meet-cute of the most unconventional kind.

Owner of the local flower shop, Daisy Pendleton is content with her small-town life, but she’d sure like someone to share it with. After several disastrous first dates, she’s about to give up—and then she finds a seemingly wonderful man online. Daisy gets to know TJ through a series of messages but finds herself spending more time with Pastor Jack outside of the church at the same time. What she doesn’t know is that her online prospect and Jack are one and the same.

Just as Daisy’s love life starts to look promising, a mysterious woman appears in town. Daisy is faced with a revelation about her family that turns her world upside down, and she looks to both TJ and Jack for help.


Jack must find a way to reveal himself as her online suitor without breaking her heart and losing her trust. As Daisy faces Jack’s betrayal, she’ll have to learn to extend grace to herself, her family, and the man she’s grown to love.

My Thoughts:

On Magnolia Lane was a really super cute read for me especially in the romance department. I enjoyed the technological bloom of romance that happened between Daisy and Pastor Jack. Jack, or Pastor Jack as Daisy called him for so long, is indeed a pastor but he is also a man who would like to have a wife to share his life with. He has actually been in love with Daisy for two years and she has no clue because he hid it so well. Jack was very sweet if not a bit too timid with his wanting a relationship with Daisy. And Daisy was a woman who wanted to move on with her love life as all her friends were married and in love, she wanted that too. So when Daisy starts dating with the help of a dating site, Jack finally gets a sense of how serious she is to settle down.

After a bit of “help” from his friends, Jack now has a profile by the name of TJ on the dating app as well. At first he resents this but then he sees this as a way to let his guard down and let Daisy get to know him as man instead of a pastor. However, everything seems to be working too well and Daisy is actually beginning to fall for TJ. In the meantime with his new boldness, Jack is pursing Daisy in real life as well.

Even though Jack was shy and had trouble expressing his feelings to Daisy, the doggedness of his pursuit to woo her and make her his was endearing and swoony at the same time. As Daisy begins to see Jack less as a pastor and more as a friend, she becomes less immune to his hidden charms. Daisy does not think she is good enough for a pastor and she is certainly confused about her feelings for both men.

While this is a lighthearted, feel good romance, Daisy has found out some devastating news. She naturally turns to Jack to help work through her emotions and for spiritual help which only brings them closer. I found this to be a charming romance and story that delves deeper into matters of forgiveness and grace and letting go.

Review: We Hope for Better Things by Erin Bartels

To Purchase
About:


In this richly textured debut novel, a disgraced journalist moves into her great aunt's secret-laden farmhouse and discovers that the women in her family were testaments to true love and courage in the face of war, persecution, and racism.

My Thoughts:


I have really been enjoying the time slip novels that have been coming out recently, and We Hope for Better Things is one that takes on a family through three generations of women who all know what it is like to struggle as a woman. Debut author Bartels tells her story in a fresh and memorable way and I enjoyed uncovering the secrets of this family as their past focuses on racial and unjust tension.

In modern times Journalist Elizabeth Balsam is tasked with giving a box of old photos to a distant aunt. Elizabeth is also going through some troubling circumstances that gives her a chance to come live with her great-aunt Nora, whom she didn’t even know she had. At another family member’s request, they want Elizabeth to look for any troubling signs that Nora is failing in her body and mental capacities.

Nora, though having lived a great many years, has some stories and secrets to share with Elizabeth. The other time we go back to is Nora’s own as a young woman living in Detroit during the 1960’s, the racial tension that is going on, and the man she eventually marries making family and friends displeased with their interracial romance.

The third timeline takes place with Mary Balsam who is living in the 1860’s and must watch as her husband leaves her to fight on the Union side of the Civil War. Pregnant and alone with a servant, Mary must run the farm by herself until one fateful day when her husband’s trunk arrives back to the farm.

Each chapter is set up in a different time period and in some cases there is a passage of years. We are told what time period we are in and where so there is no confusion just three great stories unraveling at once. I also liked that all three of these women have a connection to the house where Elisabeth has come to stay with Nora.

This was a riveting debut read and I look forward to more by author Bartels.

Review: A Bound Heart by Laura Frantz

To Purchase
About:


Their stations could not have been more different: a Scottish laird and a simple lass. When a tragedy forces both to colonial Virginia as indentured servants, can a love thwarted by tradition come to life in a new land?

My Thoughts:


I have been so excited for author Laura Frantz’s new book A Bound Heart since I heard the blurb and when I saw the cover. That cover is especially beautiful. This story did not disappoint and I found myself swept away back in time to Scotland, Colonial Virginia, and Jamaica. This novel was chock full of historical detail concerning unjust arbitrary laws the British pushed on the Scottish, wrongful imprisonments, indenture hood, slavery, and more. This book read as in different parts as circumstances beyond Magnus’s and Lark’s control swept them across the ocean on a rather eventful ship voyage to the new world and one in which they would have to grow accustomed to.

As with the author’s other books, she balances out the romance with the historical. I know there will be a happy ending, but the trials and tribulations she put these two through had me reading late into the night and thinking about the next day. I tend to like my hero and heroine together most of the book and these two were for the most part but under such circumstances that their love was to be tested and strengthened by the trials and tribulations they faced together and apart. This reading year is starting out very promising.

Review: A Baby for the Doctor by Stephanie Dees


To Purchase

About:

A Family to Call Her Own

After becoming a foster parent to a young boy, equine therapist Jordan Conley’s life gets turned upside down. Little Levi is in need of an exceptional pediatrician, which means seeking help from Dr. Ash Sheehan—a man that, despite her heart-pounding crush, isn’t her type. Her life is horses and hay, and she can’t imagine the suit-clad doctor in a pair of cowboy boots. As a confirmed bachelor, Ash has never been nervous around women, but there’s something about Jordan that flusters him, and working closely together doesn’t help. The last thing he’s looking for is long-term romance. But the more involved he gets, the more he wishes they could stay together…always.

My Thoughts:



A Baby for the Doctor is the second book in the Family Blessings series and this one focuses on Dr. Ash Sheehan a pediatrician and Jordan Conley.  Jordan has come to join her twin sister in helping abused and neglected children on a farm that was left to them by their estranged late father. Jordan is a therapist specializing with the horses and kids, not only the foster ones but also children of the community.

This was certainly a heart tugging romance and an emotional one concerning the little boy Levi who comes to be in the foster care of Jordan. Levi is a three year old boy who has been severely neglected and author Dees shows a realistic picture of how delicate and hard a job it would be to try to get a little one to trust others again. Jordan is a great mom to that little boy and Ash is with them every step of the way.

Now the romance between Jordan and Ash was so lovely to watch unfold. Both were very sick as children and they really are complete opposites. Jordan is a tomboy where Ash has a different model on his arm for every charity event he attends. And though Jordan is attracted to Ash, she is certainly keeping her heart guarded. Poor Ash is doing his best to get her to trust him and I like that he is not pushy but very patient and kindhearted. I really enjoyed their story.

Kill her stepmother and reclaim the kingdom that should have been hers. But to do so, Elisabeth must either learn to control her powers over ice and snow- powers that she shares with her stepmother.

With his help, she will bring Stephan down. She does not care who she has to double cross in the process, nor how many enemies she will have to make. But her plan for revenge crumbles around her when she finds that she cannot kill a young princess with Stephan’s eyes.

Who is the Fairest…

An eternal winter, a chance at a happy life, and a beautiful stepdaughter. The fate of three kingdoms will be decided.

Review: Searching for You by Jody Hedlund



To Purchase
About:


Despite years on the run, Sophie Neumann is determined to care for two young children. She won't abandon them the way she thinks her older sisters abandoned her. But times are growing desperate, and when she falls in with the wrong crowd and witnesses a crime, she realizes fleeing 1850s New York is her only option.

Disappearing with her two young charges into a group of orphans heading west by train, Sophie hopes to find safety and a happy life. When the train stops in Illinois for the first placement of orphans, Sophie faces the most difficult choice of her life.


Reinhold Weiss has finally purchased his own small farm. With mounting debts, a harvest to bring in, and past scars that haunt him, he's in no position to give his heart away . . . but can he say no when his long-lost friend shows up on a nearby train pleading for his help?

My Thoughts:


I have really enjoyed the Orphan Train series and this one was my absolute favorite. Sophie has been running from her sisters for a while, taking care of her two young charges that she did not want to be separated from. In Sophie’s story we see how they have been living and how she has been faring, and within the first few pages we see that Sophie is in a mess and needs help desperately. The life of a city gangster girlfriend is not one she really wanted and it could be quite dangerous.

Due to some unfortunate and dangerous circumstances, Sophie, her two charges, and a friend make their way to Chicago on the orphan train. She is always running and I really wanted her to contact her sisters, but Sophie wanted to make a better life for herself before she stepped back into her sisters’ lives, which both now made something of a success of theirs.

On her trip she begins to ponder if becoming part of a stable family would be better for the children. So she has to make some pretty heartrending decisions and then needs to deal with the aftermath. She also is reacquainted with Reinhold who is still trying to make a go of his farm with his brother’s help. To say he is shocked and relieved to see Sophie is an understatement, he immediately wants to contact her family. However Sophie feeling the way she is about herself is quite stubborn in her request for him not to.

I kept thinking Sophie’s promise was unfair, but by the end of the story I sympathized with her at the deep pain she had been carrying for years. The mistakes she made eating her up. And Reinhold becomes her hero. A reluctant hero at first, but he grows into his role as friend and then husband.  I rooted for their marriage and for both of these souls to see past what was keeping them a part.

Sophie, like so many people think that they have to get their lives cleaned up, be a better them, do this, and do that before they can accept their heavenly Father’s love. But Sophie didn’t understand the power of love and forgiveness. She learns it throughout the story though.

I received a complimentary copy of this novel. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

Review, Excerpt, and Giveaway: In the Shadows of Croft Towers by Abigail Wilson


About the Book



Book: In the Shadow of Croft Towers  
Author: Abigail Wilson  
Genre: Historical fiction, romantic suspense  
Release Date: January 15, 2019

From debut author Abigail Wilson comes a mysterious Regency tale of secrets and spies, love and treachery. 

Orphaned Sybil Delafield jumps at the opportunity for a position at the mysterious Croft Towers. She believes she was hired to act as companion to a dying woman, but a highway robbery and a hostile welcome from the Chalcroft family cause her to wonder if she was actually hired to help someone spy for France.

An unsolved murder adds intrigue to this already secretive family, and Sybil recognizes Mrs. Chalcroft’s handsome grandson as one of the infamous highwaymen who robbed her. Sybil must determine if this man’s charming smile and earnest eyes speak the truth or if he is simply using her like others in the house. Everyone seems to have something to hide, and Sybil must decide who to trust while also coming to terms with the truth about her own past.

Click here to purchase your copy!





My Thoughts:

Sybil Delafield is an orphan, an orphan who has had a mysterious benefactor and who now is on her way to be a lady’s companion to a Mrs. Chalcroft at Croft Towers. Told solely from Sybil’s view point we step into a mysterious home, an eccentric family, and plenty of secrets. What Sybil thought her role would be in this household is far different than what she prepared for.

There are family secrets and “ghosts” that still “haunt” the Towers. On top of all that there are soldiers in town intent on finding spies for France, highwaymen (which Sybil had an unfortunate meeting with), a murder, and almost everyone has a secret for Sybil to keep.

From the first words of this story I was drawn into Sybil’s journey. Who is the he she said she would never have met? Does she find out who she is and why she has been given an education for the upper class? As for the family themselves, they certainly do not act normal. Each of them seem to be hiding something and or have ulterior motives in which involves who will be bestowed the title of heir when their Aunt Chalcroft dies. Many times I wondered if Sybil should just leave, but where would she go?

This was a moody read with a perfectly creepy setting, not really the place but all the players in the home and the town that surround Sybil with her comings and goings. If you are looking for a gothic read, this is a perfect one to curl up with.

I received a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.

Excerpt from the Book


1813

THE ENGLISH COUNTRYSIDE

I often wonder what my life would have been like if I had never learned the truth. I wouldn’t have set off as I did for Croft Towers. I never would have met him.

It’s strange what I remember about the day I left London. The mail coach was late; the weather wretched. The clock had struck midnight long before two strangers and I ducked beneath the postmaster’s outstretched umbrella to board the Royal Mail and rumble across the North Downs.

That difficult journey east marked the beginning of an unseasonably cold autumn. Frigid rain pelted the coach windows. The undercarriage squealed beneath the seats as a metallic scent wound its way between the drafty boards. I gripped the windowsill, wondering if the coachman intended to hit every bump in the road.

“Far to go, miss?”

The woman’s voice startled me. Dressed head to toe in red satin, she’d endured the last few darkened hours with a handful of smelling salts and a tongue hot for complaints, but she hadn’t spoken to me until now. Not until the first hint of rain-soaked daylight peeked over the horizon.

I lowered my gaze and fiddled with my bonnet ribbons. “Yes, ma’am . . . well, not too much farther, I hope.”
