Book Review – The Alamo Bride

Kathleen Y’Barbo has done it again! This is the seventh book in this series (not all of them by Miss Y’Barbo), and they just keep getting better. I really don’t enjoy romances, but these historical fiction reads with just a splattering of romance keep my attention from beginning to...

Book Review – Shelter of the Most High

When I got this book to review, I discovered it was book #2 in the series. So I immediately got Book #1 from the library. After reading it, I was even more excited to read and review “Shelter of the Most High.” And I wasn’t disappointed. As with book...

Book Review – The Liberty Bride

# 6 in the Mayflower Brides series – I received this as a free download at #NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. I truly enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the history of the War of 1812. I’m probably less familiar with this period of history than any other....

Book Review – Many Sparrows

by Lori Benton Imagine my surprise when the setting of this book opened in my back yard! I live about 10 minutes from Yellow Creek (which dumps into the Ohio River just North of Steubenville), so I was immediately intrigued, and the story line kept my attention! Lori Benton...

Book Review – A Texas Brides Collection

I got this book from #NetGalley as a free download in exchange for an honest review . . . so here goes: If you enjoy romance novels, you’ll probably enjoy these short stories. I discovered about 1/2 way through I just don’t care for the predictability of these kinds...

Book Review – The Rise of the Mystics

I was honored to be part of the launch team for “The Rise of the Mystics”.  I think I’m glad I wasn’t able to get “The 49th Mystic” (book 1 in the two book series) right away because it put less time between reads, and I really didn’t want...

The Cumberland Bride – Book Review

Shannon McNear did an excellent job keeping my attention. A little adventure and a little romance made it a truly enjoyable read. I always enjoy these historical fiction. This one even made me get my tablet out and do a little searching to find the path the family took....

Book Review – The Patriot Bride

I enjoyed “The Patriot Bride” just as much as I’ve loved the other books in this series. The historical background is excellent, and the plot and characters are well developed. I truly enjoy the main characters interactions with real life historical figures, and appreciated the insight into the part...

Book Review – Captured Bride

Another great addition to the Mayflower Brides series. I was given this book to review, and I wasn’t disappointed. Like the “Pirate Bride,” book #3 offers a lot of adventure and unpredictable plot twists even though I’d still put it in the classification of Historical Fiction or Christian Romance....

Book Review – Pirate Bride

This is the second book in the “Daughters of the Mayflower” series by Barbour Books.  It was written by Kathleen Y’Barbo. I truly loved it. Immediately after reading it, I put the first book on hold at my local library! If you enjoy a bit of romance with a...
