Caught in the Act – Gayle Roper

Merry… Merry… such a great gal. I love this character. She’s just seems to cute… I enjoyed this story as much as the first one. And like the development of characters and the introduction of new ones.

There are a couple of things that are predictable in this story, but I didn’t EVEN see who the villian was until the climax. Some of you will hopefully be surprised by it as well.

Overall, a really enjoyable story. I need to start looking for the third book “Caught in a Bind.”

Shadows of Light – Eva Marie Everson

This third installment of the “Shadows” series was a nice ending to the trilogy. Yes, it does have a fairy tale ending and yes there is an open door for another book. But overall it was a good read.

May not rank up there with Cape Refuge or the O’Malleys… but you find yourself cheering on Katie Webster as she struggles to deal with the truth about her missing husband and the grace God gives to forgive and grow.

It’s a feel good book… but there are places for tears…

Summon the Shadows – Everson/Chadwick

I wasn’t crazy about the first book in this series, but when I was able to pick up books 2 & 3 at the local Christian bookstore for $3 each I figured why not.

I must say book 2 – Summon the Shadows was much better than the previous story. The authors did a great job of bringing new characters and tying back to characters in the previous version.

Katie Webster is now managing her missing husband’s 5-Star New York Hotel. The timeframe is December 2001 and the authors did a good job to tie in the 9/11 events into the storyline. If you pick up this book be sure to read the Epilogue for a really nice teaser leading to book 3.

Since this book appears to no long be in print, be sure to check out www.frugalreader.com I just listed my copy there. It appears to be a great source to trade books. If you sign up be sure to list mom@magnusonhouse.net as the reference.

Have a blessed Christmas Season!!
