 Description from Goodreads:  “For the past year, Chloe St. John has been working as a K-9 cop with her German shepherd partner, Hank. After being dumped by her fiance for another woman, Chloe has decided that Hank is just about the only male she likes. She’s over the whole romance thing and focuses her attention on doing her job. Because a serious case of human trafficking with connections to her missing cousin just landed in her lap.

When US Marshall Blake MacCallum’s daughter goes missing, he’s ordered to kill the judge he’s protecting and tell no one about his daughter’s disappearance or she will die. Blake races against the clock to rescue his daughter while Chloe and Hank are asked to be a part of the task force assembled to bring down the traffickers. Chloe finds herself attracted to the silent, suffering man, but thanks to her previous bad judgment, she wonders if she can trust him. And can Blake trust himself around this firecracker of a woman?

Bestselling author Lynette Eason warns readers to buckle in for a fast and furious ride that will have their hearts pumping from the very start.”

Review: This book was absolutely amazing! I devoured this book in just over a day, and that includes a full day of work. This book was amazingly well written, it was suspenseful, and riveting. Once I picked it up, I did not want to put it down.

I love the set of characters in this series. They are all so funny, strong, and likable. The Blue Justice series focus’s on one member of this crazy family (mostly cops, with a doctor thrown in) in each book so far, but you still see the other members of the family as well.

Although the first book in this series is amazing, and I highly recommend reading it, this book could easily be read as a stand alone. Each book has its own storyline and it wraps it up at the end of the book.

Recommendation: I would recommend this book to anyone who loves Christian romantic suspense. Even if you haven’t read the first book in this series, you can read this one.

Book Review! Words of Hope for Women by Carolyn Larsen

Review: This is such an inspiring and useful book for any woman. The cover and pages are gorgeous, adding to the peaceful messages of the passages.

It was so well written and laid out; it was a delight to read. It is small and compact, making it a quick read (each devotional is less than one page) and easy to carry with you when traveling or on days you know you’ll need an extra boost.

The Bible passages at the top of the page are relevant and using the New International Version, it’s clear and simple to understand for anyone.

This devotional focuses on hope during times of trial, and overcoming the pain of the past. Everyone I know has things in their past that cause them pain, this book is perfect for overcoming those issues and instead of concentrating on the pain, focusing on God’s mercy and glory.

Book Review! Words of Comfort for Women by Carolyn Larsen

I love this book. It is such an inspiring and practical book for any woman. The cover and pages are gorgeous, adding to the peaceful messages.

It was very well written and laid out; it was a delight to read. I love that the devotional focuses on God’s comfort, rather than experiences from the author.  It is small and compact, making it a quick read (each devotional is less than one page) and easy to carry with you when traveling or on days you know you’ll need an extra boost.

The Bible passages at the top of the page are relevant and using the New International Version, it’s clear and simple to understand for anyone.

This book focuses on God’s comfort during times of difficulty in our lives. I love that it gives me the encouragement I need, as well as reminding me to focus on God, rather than my problems. This is definitely a book I will read many times over.

Book Review! Take the Day Off by Robert Morris

Description from Goodreads: “Rest your mind, body, and spirit and focus on God’s principles for keeping the Sabbath with this helpful guide from bestselling author Robert Morris. A constant stream of busyness can slowly wear away at us over time: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Yet believers often forget that taking a day of rest is one of the Ten Commandments! When we don’t give our minds and emotions a break, our will to make good choices can often become compromised. Resting is also important to those around you. If you have a weary soul, you can’t pour yourself into others at home, work, or wherever you are. It’s vital-you must take the day off. ‘Take the Day Off’, Pastor Morris explains why rest is central to your wellbeing, how to do it, and how helpful it can be. You will be inspired to experience true rest and make it a priority in the rhythm of your weekly schedule. Don’t wait and delay God’s blessings in your life. Start implementing the principle of rest in your life and you will see eternal benefits.”


Review: I completely needed this book.y life has become so hectic and stressful that I never felt like I could take any time off for myself. If I had free time, I spent it cleaning or trying to get stuff done ahead so it wouldn’t be so crazy later. I was completely burning myself out. When I saw this book, I knew I had to give it a try. I am so glad I did. 


This book was so helpful and easy to read. It didn’t take a lot of time to read, because obviously I didn’t feel like I had any extra time. It gave some amazing practical advice and changed the way I thought about rest. 
The author was in the same place I was. Overwhelmed and needing a break. Reading this book never made me feel like I was being talked down too, he has been there! It was like taking advice from a sweet friend who you know went through the same struggle. 


I highly recommend this book to anyone! Seriously, we all need this book. This world has become too destination driven and stressed. Do youself a favor and pick up this book.

Book Review! Dark Ambitions by Irene Hannon

Description from Goodreads: “Former Army Night Stalker Rick Jordan usually has his camp for foster children to himself during the winter months. But someone has visited recently–leaving a trail of blood. One of the two clues left behind tips Rick off to the identity of his visitor, who soon turns up dead. The police deem it an accident, but Rick isn’t convinced. With the help of private investigator Heather Shields, he sets out to decipher the remaining clue. Except someone doesn’t want them to succeed–and will stop at nothing to keep them from finding the truth.

With her trademark psychological suspense ratcheting up the tension on every page, bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon takes you on a search for a cold-blooded killer with an ambitious goal and deadly intent.”

Wow! Irene Hannon really knows how to write amazing psychological suspense. Her stories always grip me from the first page and keeps me on the edge of my seat throughout the rest of the book. This book was absolutely no exception. I couldn’t put this down, and it kept me guessing the entire time.
The romance and faith aspect of this story fit perfectly with the suspense. Nothing overshadowed anything else. I loved how well it all blended together to make the perfect story.

I would highly recommend this book and entire series to anyone who enjoys suspense novels.

Book Review! Wyatt by Susan May Warren

This series is so amazing! When I first started, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it, but I have fallen in love. The writing is so well done that before you know it, you are hooked on the story and can’t bring yourself to put it down.

Susan May Warren has such a knack for romantic suspense/adventure stories and I just can’t seem to get enough of them. I love Wyatt and his absolute grit and determination to save the woman he cares about. Coco was such a strong and brave, absolutely perfect for Wyatt. I loved their story and the way they both overcame a lot. I found it both entertaining and inspiring.

I highly recommend this book and series to anyone who enjoys romantic adventure/suspense. This series will definitely be one you’ll devour.

Book Review! Always Look Twice by Elizabeth Goddard

Title: Always Look Twice
Author: Elizabeth Goddard  
Rating: 5/5

Description from Goodreads: While photographing the Grand Tetons, Harper Reynolds unwittingly captures a murder on film. But when she loses the camera fleeing the scene, can she and rancher Heath McKade find the camera and solve the murder before the killer makes her his next victim?”

Review: This series just keeps getting better and better. I loved the first book in this series, Never Let Go, but I think this one might have been ever better. This book was so well written, I was hooked from page one and did not want to put it down. The twists and turns kept me guessing throughout the story.

I loved Harper and Heath so much. Their chemistry was so strong. I loved how well they complimented each other and make each other better and stronger. They both had issues to overcome but with their faith, they were able to do so.

Recommendation: I highly recommend this book to anyone! Though this is the second book in the Uncommon Justice series, it can be read as a standalone. However, the first book is amazing as well, so you won’t want to miss it.
