About HollyMag321

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

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.

Review: Lethal Target by Janice Cantore

Lethal Target (The Line of Duty #2)Lethal Target by Janice Cantore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

WOW! This book was entertaining from the opening pages until the very end.

I love how the author has developed Tess’ character. She is a strong woman with a tremendous burden when it comes to the death of her father. Oliver brings to much to the story as he deals with his own loss and the desire to help those he cares about.

I loved the story. Though, the Hector character bothered me on so many levels. But sadly, I think he represented too many people in our society, the desire to make our police officers look bad. She also dealt with the issue of legalized pot farms and issues they can create in a community. (Especially one like Rogue Hollow)

I would definitely buy this book for my friends who enjoy mystery/suspense novels. As a book two it does stand alone, but you would get more out of this story by reading the first one.

Review: The Cost of Betrayal by Dee Henderson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Three great authors, three great stories!

Each story provided well written stories with excellent characters and an engaging stories.

Dee Henderson brought back Ann and Paul Falcon, so you know it is good. Likewise, Lynette Eason, takes readers to the St. John family focusing on Dr. Ruthie St. John. Dani Pettrey takes us to the Maryland island, Talbot for an excellent mystery story.

One of the stories did feel a little “unfinished” to me. I would have liked to have seen justice truly served. However, life isn’t always like that so fiction probably shouldn’t be that way either.

If you enjoy any of these authors you’ll enjoy these stories. If you haven’t read any of all of them, this is a great introduction to their talents.
