Sorry I’ve been a little busy lately, but I’ve got some great things coming. Â I have a review, Â interview, and give away with C.S. Lakin and her knew book, “A Map Across Time” plus an interview with Terri Blackstock (and there just might be a give away there as well!)
Now even though I haven’t been writing much, I’ve been busy reading.
I just finished Critical Care by Candance Calvert. Â This was an enjoyable book (albeit a little predictable). Claire had her plan and nothing was going to stop her, she had planned too carefully for anything to go wrong. Â Oh wait… God had other plans that included Dr. McSnarly. Â The supporting characters were wonderful that have their own battles to fight. This book does continue a strong line of redemption and reminds us that regardless of the circumstances God has a plan and that plan includes hope.

After her brother’s tragic death fighting a fire, former trauma nurse Claire Avery can’t face going back to the ER. But when she must offer staff counseling after a propane explosion in a local day care center, Claire’s plan self-destructs. She’s back in the ER, battling painful memories-and the handsome and surly doctor who thrives on chaos. Dr. Logan Caldwell has learned to distance himself from painful emotion. He expects his ER staff to be as tough as he is, and when hospital administration sends a beautiful but pushy education nurse to offer counseling, he’ll have none of it.
Before Critical Care, I finally had the chance to read Virginia Smith’s book,Â Stuck in the Middle. It was great to read the first book in the series! Joan Sanderson is theÂ quintessential middle child. Having read books two and three of the series I knew Joan and saw her as a stabling influence in her families lives, but in this story I got to see her journey to this place. Â It is the journey of being a church goer to having a true relationship with one’s Lord. It was beautiful.
|Stuck in the Middle, Sister-To-Sister Series #1
By Virginia Smith / Revell
Joan Sanderson’s life is stuck. Her older sister, Allie, is starting a family and her younger sister, Tori, has a budding career. Meanwhile, Joan is living at home with Mom and looking after her aging grandmother. Not exactly a recipe for excitement. That is, until a hunky young doctor moves in next door. Suddenly Joan has a goal, to get a date. But it won’t be easy. Pretty Tori flirts relentlessly with him and Joan is sure that she cannot compete. But with a little help from God, Allie, and an enormous mutt with bad manners, maybe Joan can find her way out of this rut.
At the moment I’m reading Randy Singer’s The Justice Game. Â It already appears to be true to Randy Singer’s style of high energy suck you in, law story. Â This one has a personal side to it for the author. Â Hopefully I can finish it before the 22nd when Terri Blackstock’s new book comes out!!! Â Downloading it to my kindle as soon as it comes out!!!!
