Deadly Proof by Rachel Dylan #giveaway 5 winners

Disclosure: Litfuse sent me this book as part of the blog tour. Opinions shared are mine.

As a fan of Lisa Scottoline’s legal thrillers, I really enjoyed Rachel Dylan’s Deadly Proof.  Set in Atlanta, this story gives the reader a peek into the inner workings of a corrupt pharmaceutical company.  It’s all Erin Brockovich kind of stuff, with hunky Landon James as a good side character.

My husband and I have been binge-watching The Great British Baking Show lately, so my reading time is constantly interrupted by images of sweet treats.  We really need to find a new show that burns more calories. Thankfully, the books I’ve been reading lately are fat-free.

Many Sparrows by Lori Benton book review

Disclosure: I received this book free from Litfuse. Post contains affiliate links; opinions shared are mine.

His eye is on the sparrow…and I know he watches me.  ~Civilla D. Martin


For a long time, I had a pretty little blue sparrow phone case.  Whenever I saw the case, it reminded me that God doesn’t miss even a sparrow that falls.  When my life seemed to revolve around money, material things, or the future, that little sparrow reminded me that God has taken care of my needs, even before I knew of the problem.  The belief is in my heart, but sometimes my brain has trouble remembering it!  Sometimes in books, our characters have to learn that lesson, too.  It’s no surprise that Many Sparrows was in God’s hands all along, but try convincing his mother Clare of that!   [Read more…]

My Daughter’s Legacy by Mindy Starns Clark & Leslie Gould

Disclosure: I received this book for review; opinions shared are mine.

I’ve always loved the written word.  My earliest memories include sitting in our family’s huge papasan chair, snuggled in the soft cushions, reading The Poky Little Puppy with my mom.  When I learned to read, it was like windows to the world opened!  I’ve experienced some losses in the past year, with the passing of both my father and grandfather.  They each left behind a brief but precious record of their lives in journal form.  Though the journals weren’t completed, it was nice to hear just a little bit from these two men who helped me grow up.  It’s a written document that creates a legacy.

In the book My Daughter’s Legacy by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould, the written word becomes a powerful way to access the past.   [Read more…]

A Letter from Lancaster County by Kate Lloyd book review

Disclosure: I received this book from Litfuse group. Opinions shared are mine.

Family dynamics are a tricky matter.  Everyone has “that person” in their family…unless they are “that person.”   It was something I didn’t realize until adulthood.   As a child, I was used to covering family secrets and hiding what was going on at home.  It was normal to give vague answers when someone asked about my dad or brother.  Even now, I don’t like to visit my home state of Kentucky because of the bad memories it brings.  In the book A Letter from Lancaster County, author Kate Lloyd touches on the tender relationships that sometimes haven’t healed, even after years and years.
