Last Light, Restoration Series #1 – Terri Blackstock

When I read the summary of this story I was very uncertain whether or not I’d enjoy it. Afterall, I’m a “Nancy Drew” wanna be… but this story was an eye opener. I had to ask myself what would I be like if I were faced with all the power going out. Not sure I want to think on that too much… 🙂
Terri Blackstock has the ability to create characters that you love and those you just want to slap. Book 1 of the Cape Refuge Series I remember having a strong desire to just slap Blair senseless. In this book it’s the 22 year old Deni Branning that I wanted to slap. But once again, I was reminded that God’s grace has a way of breaking through the most difficult cases.
I did end up enjoying the story and am looking forward to the next in the series.

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…
