The Lieutenant’s Bargain Review

Ever since Lt. Jack Hennessey was introduced in Holding the Fort, I patiently waited all year for his story, The Lieutenant’s Bargain. Okay, maybe not * patiently * considering I kinda stalked the mailman when I’d heard my copy was coming. But yes! This story, by the talented Regina Jennings, is fabulous. So prepare yourself for all my gushing!

But first, a little summary about it:

Hattie Walker dreams of becoming a painter, while her parents want her to settle down. As a compromise, they give her two months to head to Denver and place her works in an exhibition or give up the dream forever. Her journey is derailed when a gunman attacks her stagecoach, leaving her to be rescued by a group of Arapaho . . . but she’s too terrified to recognize them as friendly.

Confirmed bachelor Lieutenant Jack Hennessey has long worked with the tribe and is tasked with trying to convince them that the mission school at Fort Reno can help their children. When a message arrives about a recovered survivor, Jack heads out to take her home–and plead his case once more.

He’s stunned to run into Hattie Walker, the girl who shattered his heart–but quickly realizes he has a chance to impress her. When his plan gets tangled through translation, Jack and Hattie end up in a mess that puts her dreams in peril–and tests Jack’s resolve to remain single.

My thoughts:

After I got my hot little hands on this story, I could NOT put it down. The narrative was witty and humorous. The plot was vivid and engaging! And the characters—Oh my, these characters!!!!—were dynamic and so fun.

I totally loved that Lt. Jack pined over his longtime crush for, um, decades. It was adorable to read about a successful military man turning to mush at the presence of Hattie Walker. While this story contains a lot of charming banter and delightful scenes, the plot is not all just fun and games. There are elements of mystery and danger lurking between the pages that kept me intrigued and guessing until the final chapters.

The tender romance between the characters was never forced but unfolded organically and beautifully. The thread of God’s unfailing presence during scary times was woven seamlessly throughout the story, leaving my heart refreshed and strengthened. Basically, I adored everything about this novel and will no doubt stalk my mailman again for the third book in the series.

The Christmas Heirloom Novella Series Review

If you want some stories to stir your Christmas spirit, then the Christmas Heirloom novella series is for you! Besides the cover being absolutely stunning, the stories within are equally beautiful. 

About the series:

In Kristi Ann Hunter’s “Legacy of Love,” Sarah Gooding never suspected returning a brooch to an elderly woman would lead to a job . . . and introduce her to the woman’s grandson, a man far above her station.

In Karen Witemeyer’s “Gift of the Heart,” widow Ruth Albright uses the family brooch as collateral for a loan from the local banker. But the more she comes to know the man behind the stern businessman, the more she hopes for a second chance at love.

In Sarah Loudin Thomas’s “A Shot at Love,” Fleeta Brady’s rough-and-tumble childhood means she prefers hunting to more feminine activities. She never expected her family’s brooch might be how a fellow hunter turns her attention from competition to romance.

In Becky Wade’s “Because of You,” Maddie Winslow has spent years in love with a man whose heart was already spoken for. When a church Christmas project brings them together and she stumbles upon an old family brooch, might it finally be her turn for love?

My Thoughts:

I can’t remember the last time I read a string of stories so quickly. First of all, I loved the idea of an heirloom that ties all four stories together. It was fun spanning the time from the 1800s until present day, traveling with the heirloom, experiencing the different love stories. Each novella was unique and interesting.  

“Legacy of Love” Kristi Ann Hunter does a great job kicking off the series. Having loved her stories in the past, I was looking forward to her unique humor sprinkled into an enchanting plot. I was NOT disappointed. Though I was surprised how tender and heartwarming the ending was. It truly was a delightful read!

Karen Witemeyer’s “Gift of the Heart” hooked me from the beginning until the last word. The heroine was strong yet possessed a kind heart. Also, the hero reminded me a lot of John Thornton from North and South, and so that’s a very good thing as well!  

 “A Shot at Love” by Sarah Loudin Thomas is a new-to-me author, and I was impressed at how well she can place you directly into the scene! I will be on the lookout for future stories from her. 

Becky Wade’s “Because of You” kept me up late into the night reading—well past this mama’s bedtime. BUT! It was so worth it. This author certainly knows how to engage her reader with snappy dialogue, vivid characters, and an enamoring plot. She writes so well that I think I’d five star her grocery lists. LOL. But seriously, this novella ranks high among my favorites! 

All in all, I was majorly impressed at how well these stories fit together and how fabulously it had kept my way-too-easily-distracted attention. I recommend this tender collection to any and all readers who are hunting for the perfect Christmas read!

Author Interview with Kelly Goshorn

Author Pic Inside 1.jpg

I’m so excited to host author Kelly Goshorn on the blog today. Welcome, Kelly!

Hi Rachel. Thank you for hosting me on your blog. I look forward to chatting with your readers today.

Tell us something unusual about yourself. Something not in the typical back of the book author bio.

 Hmmm…the first thing that comes to mind is a little quirk I have. I don’t like to walk on grates. Thankfully, I live in a small town and the only place you really find them are in parking lots at the shopping centers, so they are easy to avoid. But when we go into Washington, D.C. I won’t walk on them. That can be awkward on city streets full of people. My husband will jump up and down on them to prove to me that they are safe, and I still won’t try it!

When did you discover you were a writer?

Truthfully, I never saw it coming! I had always enjoyed writing papers for my college history classes, but I NEVER considered writing fiction. I’d been a successful in-home childcare provider for nearly twenty years, but I knew in my heart it was time to move on to something new. My husband and I began praying for God to give me a new direction, a new passion in my life I would undeniably know He’d planted in my heart. On a whim, I began tinkering with storytelling and it didn’t take long for my secret hobby to become my God-given passion! 

Which 3 words describe the type of fiction you write?

Faith-filled, humorous and passionate.

Who is your favorite fictional character/couple?

I’d have to say Marcy & Patrick O’Conner from Julie Lessman’s Daughters of Bostonand Winds of Changeseries. Marcy and Patrick are in there 40s and Julie writes the most beautiful relationship between the two throughout the series. Even though they are not the main characters, their story is featured as the secondary plotline in several of the books. Julie eventually wrote a prequel telling their story inALight in the Window. They probably resonated with me because I am closer in age to Marcy & Patrick then most of the hero and heroine’s I read and write. I actually have their parts of the story dog-eared in my copy, so I can just reread the Marcy & Patrick sections (confessions of a book nerd).

 Ooh I love that couple too! That entire series was phenomenal! So let’s talk inspiration. What was your inspiration for writing A Love Restored?

A Love Restoredis based on my true-life love story with my husband, Mike—all of our ups and downs, including our emotionally devastating break up. When I first began writing, I tinkered with a story about Irish mail-order brides (the whole mail order bride thing just fascinates me). Hubby read it, told me it “wasn’t bad,” then suggested I write our story. Skeptical, I questioned him. “Are you sure. I mean you don’t look so good in that story for a long time.” He grinned and responded, “Yeah, but I think it turned out all right.” I’d have to agree. We celebrated our 28thwedding anniversary last June.

Congrats!! Being married for over 28 years is an accomplishment not many can boast about. Okay, since A Love Restored is based on your “real-life” romance with your husband, how much of your heroine’s journey mirrors your own?

Like my full-figured heroine, Ruth Ann, I’ve struggled with weight issues my entire life. That struggle plays an important part in our story. I’ve had cruel things said about my appearance. Oftentimes by people who were supposed to love me. But their insensitive words failed in comparison to the ugly way I spoke to myself. I’d become so defined by the negative comments and opinions of those surrounding me, I no longer saw anything to esteem. I’d allowed my self-worth to be determined by a yardstick that measured my value according to the size of my waist or the flatness of my stomach, always coming up short. My own journey to self-acceptance, as well as what a loving God will do to grab a stubborn woman’s attention, are pivotal to the story line.

That will resonate with a lot of women as well. What was the most difficult part for you in writing the story?

I found it challenging to write our characters, Ruth Ann and Benjamin, who both struggle to come to terms with Ruth Ann’s fuller-figure, without making her look weak and pathetic nor him seem shallow. I hope readers find them to be strong, good-hearted characters struggling with very human flaws who look to God and scripture for guidance and healing.

In A Love Restored, Ruth Ann’s domestic skills are lacking, and Benjamin teaches her how to make sugar cookies. Since the book is based on your life, are you a disaster in the kitchen?

Although the Food Network will not be offering me a spot in their line-up, I certainly know my way around the kitchen. Unlike my heroine, I didn’t grow up with servants and learned how to cook as a teenager. But my husband is an excellent baker. Mike is known for his sugar cookies that are just melt-in-your-mouth delicious and inspired the baking scene in A Love Restored. He learned to make them from his Grandmother Dorwaldt. Hubby keeps a copy of the recipe in our lockbox with all the important papers like our marriage license and the kids’ birth certificates. True story! The recipe is available to you when you subscribe to my newsletter (yes, that was a shameless plug) at 

That’s so fun! I love when recipes are included! Fans of historical fiction & romance love the details that your research provides. Was there anything particularly interesting that you learned while researching your book that you were able to use in your story that you’d like to share?

While researching the post-Civil War history of my town and the county as a whole, I began reading about the life of the freed slaves in the area and the Freedman’s Schools to educate them. I discovered that Fannie Wood, a white woman from Middleboro, Massachusetts, came to the area to teach in one of the newly authorized Freedman’s Bureau schools in the nearby town of Warrenton. But in Reconstruction Era Virginia, Miss Wood’s tenure would not be without opposition from those who did not want the freed slaves educated. A Warrenton newspaper, The True Index, printed the first paragraph of a threatening letter sent to Miss Wood: “We the young men of this town think you are a disgrace to decent society and therefore wish you to leave this town before the first of March and if you don’t there will be violence used to make you comply to this request.” That threatening note became the inspiration for my secondary storyline in A Love Restored.

What do you hope readers take away from reading A Love Restored?

A Love Restoredis not only a story of love, romance, heartache and restoration, but also a story about the power of words over our lives. It is a story about the struggle each of us faces to take our thoughts captive to the truth of Scripture so we may experience the fullness of God’s unequivocal love for us. As my husband and I discovered, it is only then that we are truly able to give and receive love, unconditionally.

My prayer for you and your lovely readers is that you will not allow the enemy to steal the joy that is rightfully yours as a child of God. Speak the truth of the gospel over yourself every day and ask God to give you His eyes to see yourself as He does. “For the Lord sees not as man sees; for man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7b

An Excerpt from A Love Restored:

ALoveRestored_prc5391_750 2.jpg

Loudoun County, Virginia

August 1873

Benjamin Coulter cringed as the shrill tune hung in the air. That woman sure knew how to ruin a Sunday afternoon. Sounded like something was dying and needed to be put out of its misery.

He shook his head. All he wanted to do was rest a while longer. His decision to go around his headstrong superior and talk to Mr. Farrell directly about his boss’s inaccurate measurements had made for a nerve wracking week. That decision could have cost him his job. Thankfully, his discovery had been received well, saving the struggling railroad both time and money.

Benjamin leaned against the sycamore tree and tossed his line into the creek. A slight hint of remorse nicked his conscience. He now sat poised to guide the construction of the Washington & Ohio Railroad through the town of Catoctin Creek and over the Blue Ridge Mountains to Winchester, but he hadn’t intended to get his boss fired. If only the man hadn’t refused to admit he’d made a mistake.

Yep, it was all coming together. Just the way he’d hoped it would when he agreed to leave Texas and take this apprenticeship in Virginia. All he had to do was pass that examination next spring and…

He shuddered. The woman’s screeching escalated to a bone-grating pitch. She’d frighten the fish away for sure. Like most folks, Sunday was his day off, and he didn’t intend to spend it listening to her sing off-key.

Wedging his pole in the mud of the creek bank, he set off to investigate. Her ear-piercing slaughter of The Merry, Merry Month of Mayled the way. He spied his first glimpse of the lyrical assassin through the thin limbs of a dogwood tree. Perched on a large, flat rock at the edge of the creek, she swirled her bare feet in the water. Behind the rock sat a pair of woman’s boots—fancy ones. Too bad she hadn’t spent some of her shoe allowance on singing lessons.Her voice cracked. “The skies were bright, our hearts were light, in the merry, merry month of May…”

Benjamin winced. That was the fourth time in a row she’d sung that part. For the love of Pete, didn’t Miss Fancy Boots even know the words? He needed to put a stop to this so he could continue fishing—and napping. He stepped forward then stopped. The woman reached up and removed a pin from her hair, then another. Mounds of long chestnut brown ringlets spilled over her shoulders into the middle of her back.

Curls. He groaned. Why’d she have to have curls?

“The skies were bright. Our eyes were light…”

Never mind.Curls or not, the woman’s voice could haunt the dead.

When You Look At Me Review



When You Look At Me is another dazzling story by the fabulous Pepper Basham.

About the book:

An unexpected mother-to-be
A romance-leery composer
And a forgotten melody from the past that holds the keys to their futures

When Julia Jenkins’ great aunt dies and leaves her a Victorian mansion with decades of secrets, Julia never expects to unearth a World War 2 espionage mystery. Struggling with her own past since an assault left her pregnant, her future as a solo parent leaves her dreams uncertain. The inheritance from her great aunt gives Julia the ability to take a step back into her future, but also sends her into the discovery of a love story she’d never anticipated. As she goes through her aunt’s treasured possessions, Julia uncovers some oddly written piano music with a musical code she can’t decipher on her own. Not to worry, introverted Englishman and composer, Henry Wright, is thrust on the scene by a pair of homespun matchmakers who know the ‘right’ man for Julia’s wounded heart.

Henry arrives in Pleasant Gap with the task of composing the soundtrack for his best mate’s newest film. The Jenkins’ family’s southern welcome and gregarious personalities set his reticent nature on edge, but he’s inexplicably drawn to his gentle and music-loving hostess, Julia. Uncertain how to build a friendship with the wounded woman, and rather hopeless in communicating well through words, the bond of music becomes a bridge between her uncertainty and his awkwardness.

But her broken past and his families’ expectations build a wall much greater than the cultures that separate them. As they work together to solve a musical mystery from the grave, will an unlikely romance from the past inspire their hearts to trust in a God who’s written the perfect melody for their lives?

My thoughts:

I love how the author tackles different personalities in each of her books. In this story, the main characters are both introverts with a passion for music. The heroine, Julia, is reeling from a devastating incident which left her heart wounded and her mind cautious of romance. From the first chapter I found myself rooting for her, championing her happily ever after.

Henry is the exact opposite of the outgoing hero, Wes Harrison, from book one. Henry’s reflective. One who’d rather listen than speak. But just like the music he composes, there’s a richness to his character. Pair him with the tender-hearted Julia, and you have a beautifully crafted romance.

One thing I love about Pepper Basham’s writing is that she paints the scenes with words. You not only can visualize the stunning backdrop of Blue Ridge mountains, but you are there, inhaling the crisp air, taking in the vibrant hues. With this lovely story, you also get enthralled with the music. The author describes it so vividly you can almost hear the strums of each song.

Above all this, there’s a thread of mystery with Julia’s aunt and the charming home bequeathed to her.

I love the spiritual elements that the author weaves into each of her stories, and this one is no exception. The theme of being brave, of stepping out even while fear screams its ugly threats, is refreshing and heart-strengthening.

Hats off to Pepper Basham for yet another five-star novel. I’m eagerly awaiting the next story in this series.

On Magnolia Lane Review



On Magnolia Lane by Denise Hunter was a tender conclusion to her Blue Ridge Romance series.

About the story:

Falling in love with Daisy was easy for Jack. But finding the courage to tell her becomes problematic when his secret feelings lead to even bigger complications.

After two years of counseling sessions with Daisy Pendleton, Pastor Jack McReady has earned a permanent spot in her life as a spiritual leader—and nothing more. Jack would never risk losing her trust by exposing the depths of his heart, but he’s hopelessly in love with her.

Daisy loves her southern small-town life and her job at her family-run flower shop, but she doesn’t have the thing she longs for most: someone to share it with. Her recent foray into online dating has been a disaster—until she meets TJ.

Jack could kill his friend Noah for using his initials and some indistinct photos to set up a profile on the dating app Daisy is using. But when he’s finally afforded the opportunity to show her a different side of himself, he’s sucked into the plan before he has time for second thoughts.

Online, Daisy shares some of her greatest fears with TJ, but in person, Jack and Daisy are spending more time together. When a devastating family secret surfaces, Daisy knows that only her trusted friend and counselor can bring her comfort. Jack wants nothing more than to be both men for Daisy, but revealing his secret will prove to be the ultimate test of Daisy’s grace.

My Thoughts:

I adore Daisy Pendleton. In fact, I’m gonna go as far as saying that she’s my favorite Denise Hunter heroine to date. Daisy’s always-do-what’s-right attitude coupled with her sweet nature earned my highest respect. But even more, she struggles with the dyslexia which affects her self-perception. Experiencing how she faces her inner demons while battling the external conflicts which arise in her family is poignant and heart-strengthening.

Of course there’s a tender romance BUT what stood out to me in this book more than any other of Ms. Hunter’s novels is the running theme of relationships. Throughout the story, Daisy encounters situation after situation regarding relationships with everyone she’s close to (And even some she’s NOT close to—when you read the story, you’ll know exactly whom I’m referring to. ;)) She’s met with pivotal decisions that alters her perception of past relationships and affects the status of current ones. On top of all this, she’s juggling a could-be romance with an online admirer while also becoming aware of her growing feelings for her pastor, Jack McReady.

Ms. Hunter tackles several difficult subjects in this novel with such a grace-infused delicacy that it leaves the reader’s heart uplifted and refreshed. This author also excels in creating characters that are relatable as well as unforgettable. This story will appeal to  many readers especially those who adore the movie You’ve Got Mail and the classic Shop Around the Corner.

An Hour Unspent Review



I love it when a story transports me to another era, to another land. When the characters are so vivid that you forget they’re imaginary. When actual historical events are woven seamlessly into the engaging plot.

An Hour Unspent, by Roseanna M. White, contains all of these factors.

About the story:

Once London’s top thief, Barclay Pearce has turned his back on his life of crime and now uses his skills for a nation at war. But not until he rescues a clockmaker’s daughter from a mugging does he begin to wonder what his future might hold.

Evelina Manning has constantly fought for independence, but she certainly never meant for it to inspire her fiancé to end the engagement and enlist in the army. When the intriguing man who saved her returns to the Manning residence to study clockwork repair with her father, she can’t help being interested. But she soon learns that nothing with Barclay Pearce is as simple as it seems.

As 1915 England plunges ever deeper into war, the work of an ingenious clockmaker may give England an unbeatable military edge–and Germany realizes it as well. Evelina’s father soon finds his whole family in danger–and it may just take a reformed thief to steal the time they need to escape.

My thoughts:

The hero, Barclay Pearce, was introduced in the first book of this series, A Name Unknown, and had cameos in the second story, A Song Unheard. He’s the eldest “brother” of the group complete with a protective streak and a penchant for novels. While we get glimpses of him in these books, In An Hour Unspent, we get an in-depth look at his insecurities and his strengths. At his vulnerable background and his authentic faith. His interactions with Evelina were both humorous and tender. I love when a hero is loyal, and that, my friend, is Barclay. His devotion is as reliable as Big Ben, and that was one of the reasons why I adored this story.

Evelina was an unforgettable heroine with a poignant character journey. And while us readers experience her struggles and her shortcomings, we also experience her growth and triumphs. The pairing of the Evelina with London’s notorious thief, Barclay, may seem illogical and impossible, but it’s truly beautiful and full of grace.

As a side note, the mysterious character V has a greater role in this story. I love that the author gives the reader a better glimpse into his life.

Besides the phenomenal romance thread, there are elements of suspense, mystery, and dashes of humor that only a talented author like Rosanna White could bring. Set all of this in front of the intriguing backdrop of WWI, and you have the workings of a spectacular story.

This final book of the series exceeded my expectations! I can’t wait to see what this author serves up next!

Dead Drift Review




I have to admit that after I finished Dani Pettry’s novel Blind Spot, I scoured the internet until I found when the next story, the final book in the Chesapeake Valor Series, would be released. Dead Drift certainly was worth the wait.

About the Book:

Burning debris littering the ground . . . smoke pluming in the acrid air . . . this is just the beginning if he fails.

Seven years ago, operative Luke Gallagher vanished to become part of an elite team set on capturing a deadly terrorist. When Luke returns to face those he left behind, their help becomes his only hope of stopping his target’s latest threat of an attack that would shake America to its core.

Private investigator Kate Maxwell never stopped loving or looking for Luke after he disappeared. But she also never imagined he left her or his life by choice. Now he’s back, and together they must unravel a twisting thread of secrets, lies, and betrayal, all while on the brink of a biological disaster.

Will they and their love survive, or will Luke and Kate become the terrorist’s next mark?

My Thoughts:

This novel is brimming with suspense, mystery, and romance. There were so many strong elements in this story that I’m having difficulty pinpointing where to start! But because I’m a sucker for a great romance, I’ll start with the love factor.

You get a glimpse of Luke and Kate’s romantic history earlier in the series, but their rocky relationship takes center stage in this story. CIA operative Luke Gallagher had always loved Kate Maxwell but his decisions had left her heart wounded and his soul dark. One of my favorite lines of the story was:

“To Luke, home had become far more than a physical dwelling. To him a home was where his heart resided, and she was sitting three inches to his right.”

There was both witty banter and deep conversations between these characters. It was moving to see how Luke’s past choices had affected Kate’s ability to trust. These two worked together in pursuit of exposing a terrorist plot all the while trying to sort out the rifts in their own relationship.

The suspense element was fast-paced and engaging. It was unpredictable and filled with surprises. As a reader, I love when I can’t guess the ending! The story was the grand finale of a spectacular series. Props to the author for crafting an intricate plot but writing it in a fluid way so I never got lost or confused.

I was sad to see this series come to an end, but I look forward to more from this talented author.
