My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a bittersweet story. I think most everyone will guess the basics of how it will end, but it is such a sweet story with a wonderfully endearing character in Callie.

I’m not sure how many times I cried during this story, but I truly loved it. The author created characters that as a reader I fell in love with. It is a story that reminds us about the importance of life and the people we share it with.

Definitely recommend it to those who love Hallmark movies!

Review: Burden of Proof by DiAnn Mills

Burden of Proof (FBI: Rapid Response, #1)Burden of Proof by DiAnn Mills
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

DiAnn Mills once again delivers a fantastic story!

She gave us a tough FBI agent, a handsome and loving father, and evil personified.

To say the least I enjoyed the action and the characters in this story. April Ramos cares for the people she’s trying to help. When she isn’t able to save one it is devastating for her. But she’s also tough and believes in justice, she is a great character.

I ended up loving Jason when it was over, but honestly, there were a few times I wanted to smack him up side the head! But watching his faith in action and at time struggling was refreshing.

The story was very interesting in how the author weaved in some pretty cool technology. She also did a good job of cloaking the murderer. It was only pages before the actual reveal when it hit me.

Definitely recommend this to fans of DiAnn Mills as well as any fans of suspense books. Looking forward to more from this series!

Review: Freedom’s Light by Colleen Coble

Freedom's LightFreedom’s Light by Colleen Coble
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

History came alive for me in this story!

There was so much about the Revolutionary War I really didn’t realize. I knew the basics but I never realized that there were those who lived in America that believed we should continue being loyal to England.

This story captivated me from the beginning. Hannah has so much spunk and passion for her God and her family. She was a strong woman that was easy to admire. The author did a great job making Birch a character to love as well. He had baggage that he had carried too long and I loved how justice played out in this story. Lydia broke my heart as much as she broke Hannah’s. And I didn’t expect the resolution of her story to go the direction it did.

The thing that really hit me hard with this story was the treatment of Hannah and Lydia by the town’s “religious” leaders, the Puritans. Not to give too much away, but it was truly a sad time in our Christian heritage.

If you enjoy historical fiction or Colleen Coble as an author you’re going to enjoy this story. If you enjoy historical fiction AND Colleen Coble as an author you’re going to LOVE this story.
