The Widow of Saunders Creek by Tracey Bateman

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review

 I don't normally read suspense novels but decided to give this one a try. Boy am I glad that I did !! It keep me on the edge of my seat the whole time. It was a very easy read and was over before I knew what happened. I like that in a book.

Corrie Saunders moves to Saunders Creek a few months after her husband dies in the war. She returns to the house he grew up in and left her in his will. Problem is Corrie feels like Jarrod didnt actual leave her at all. Eli, Jarrod's cousin is helping Corrie fix up the house but finds himself doing the unthinkable , falling for her. Is Jarrod's ghost in the house ? Will Corrie return Eli's feelings ? You will have to read to find out how this one ends .

Like I said I do not normally read suspense novels so I was a little worried as to how this one would go. But I really did enjoy the book and left wanting to know what happens next. It was a really enjoyable read.

Baby Proof by Emily Giffin

I had time for another fun read

I'll be honest , I didn't enjoy this one as much as I have the other Giffin books I have read. I just had trouble connecting with the story and I felt alot of unneeded info was in it. Not my favorite read but certainty not my least favorite .

Tumbleweeds by Leila Meacham

This one was actually for pleasure, Ive been so busy lately with official book blogs to read i hardly find to for a personal read but I had some time this summer.

Since this is a personal read i wont go into great details since there are no blog requirements. I saw an advertisement in the "All You" magazine and thought, I must read this so I requested it from Nashville Library. This was a very BIG book. I finished it a few days ago and Im honestly not sure how I feel about it. It was a good read but I felt it was a little too jumpy and then the ending was rushed. It was slow then super fast then slow. I got lost a few times??? 

My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade

I received a copy of this book for review purposes from Bethany House Publishers.  I am under no obligation to write a positive review, just an honest one.

This book was a little different that what I normally read. To be honest I felt it was a little slow , but at the same time I did enjoy myself while reading it. A little something different is always good for a change up. 

Kate a social worker from Texas takes a few months of work to go up north to help her grandmother fix up her old birth places. The local contractor for the project is Matt , a famous retired hockey player who was recently left a widower by the death of his wife. Kate is more determined to fix Matt's broken shut down self than her Gran's house. Will she ever be able to break down the wall that he built so high ?

Like i said this book was a little slow and seemed to give alot of unnecessary details to the story but at the same time I did enjoy it after I was done wanted to know more of what happened after the final chapter

The Harvest of Grace by Cindy Woodsmall

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review

 I know what you are thinking, another Amish book surprise surprise. Its no secret that I'm a fan of a good Amish novel. And with a "The Harvest of Grace" that's exactly what I got! This is the third book in the "Ada's House" series, I read the second one not too long ago and couldn't wait to get my hands on this one to see where the story of these lovely Amish women went.

In "The Harvest of Grace " we are introduced to a new character Sylvia Fisher who in unlike normal Amish women roles loves to do the farming work. Being one of nine daughters she helped her father on their dairy farm, that is until a sticky situation with a brother in law left her with no choice to but to leave the farm. She found herself working on the Blank dairy farm helping Michael run things since only son Aaron is in rehab . Sylvia and Michael make plans to get the farm out of debt, all is on the right track until Aaron returns home with different plans on what to do with the farm, can Sylvia an Aaron work out their differences ?  You will have to read this wonderful novel to find out.

I knew going into it I was going to love this novel, because Cindy Woodsmall has yet to disappoint me. And once again she did not let me down. I read this novel in record time. I hope there is more to come in the "Ada House" series. I can't wait to see what happens next!
