Through the Mist

About the book: Can Landon and Megan use prayer and faith to find their happily ever after? 

Landon Edmunds has been a cowboy since birth, even winning in the rodeo for several years before an injury ended his career. He returned to his hometown of Gold Valley, where he works at Horseshoe Home Ranch as a cowhand, but now he's looking for something of his own. He's thinking of buying a horse ranch and training horses for the rodeo, but when an old high school friend returns to Gold Valley, he turns to construction instead. 

The preacher's daughter, Megan Palmer needs a helping (cow)hand to get her father's church in good repair so he can retire. Megan and Landon work well together, and as sparks fly, she’s sure God brought her back to Gold Valley so she could find her happily ever after--if only Landon wasn't looking to leave town. 

Through serious discussion and prayer, can Landon and Megan find their future together?

Favorite Friday - The Prayer

For today's Favorite Friday post, I'm going to show you a YouTube video that I really enjoyed watching. I first heard Celtic Women's version of this song and it became an instant favorite for me. I really enjoy this version with Jenny Oaks Baker and Lexi Walker. We're big Jenny Oaks Baker fans at our house, her talent is astounding. Check it out below! 




Here's a little about the artists in the video.

America’s violinist, Jenny Oaks Baker, has teamed up with America’s sweetheart, Lexi Walker, in this video of “The Prayer”, a song made popular as a duet between Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli.

Jenny Oaks Baker is known as America’s violinist. A Grammy nominated musician, Jenny began her playing career at the age of four. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, and her master’s degree at the Juilliard School in New York City. She has performed with the Utah Symphony, the Concerto Soloists Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, and the Mo…

Falling for Maria

About the book: At twenty-six, Maria is holding out for the perfect man to share the rest of her life with. Josh seems to be that man, but after months of dating, their relationship is at a stand-still. Maria plans to nudge Josh forward, but when the company she works for is bought out, her new boss Walker seems determined to change Maria’s idea of the perfect man. 

My review: This is a fun novella, I'm really loving this series by Heather B Moore! I love to be able to read these novellas in an afternoon. There's a lot of good to this one.

Maria is an amazing character. She loves her job. Has a secret boyfriend (she'd rather he not be secret). And she loves her colorful clothes that make her happy. She's a bit nervous about the new owners of the company she works for though. They have all kinds of new rules about dress standards, what you can put in your work space, and co-worker romances. Oops, there goes that secret boyfriend of hers, which is just fine, he was complet…

Blog Tour - Chasing Red Review and Giveaway

About the book: Ryder Redmond can’t wait to begin her new life in New York City, with her first real job after college. But the big city gets a little more complicated once she meets the charming and mysterious Damian Wolfe. On the surface he seems perfect, but her friend Hunter is suspicious of his all-too-straight smile and his motives towards Ryder. With her heart on the line, Ryder will have to decide just how much she trusts the handsome city slicker. 

My review: I really liked Ryder in this book! I liked that she has a huge independent streak. She moves, by herself, from Utah to New York to be a CPA in a large firm. I really enjoyed the part where she was moving, it was fun to see that while she was independent, she was also vulnerable just like anyone would be in this situation. I also really enjoyed seeing her relationships with people around her grow and change throughout the book, especially her mom.

I really liked her roommate, Lily, she's got some attitude and a huge per…

Blog Tour - Defiance: A World War II Story

About the book: Eight years after immigrating to the United States, German-born Lukas Ley embodies the American dream: successful athlete, gorgeous girlfriend, loving family. But beneath the surface, eighteen-year-old Lukas is driven by ambition, resolved to avenge the murder of his father at the hands of the Nazi regime. Unfortunately, a failed physical throws his plans for flight school off course. Unlike his war-hero older brother, Lukas's purpose is unclear. He can't fly, and in the eyes of the military, he's good for only one thing—the front lines.

From the foxholes of war-ravaged Luxembourg to the devastation of an enormous German offensive, Lukas's journey is fraught with peril. But when he's taken as a prisoner of war, he realizes life is about to get much worse. In the enemy camp, Lukas is viewed as a German fighting for the wrong side. Ripped from the innocence of an idealistic youth, he becomes a man beaten by the horrors of war. Now his only hope of surv…

As she sought for the peace and comfort that could help mend her broken heart, she learned, step by step, how to open her heart to God's Grace and will.                                                                                                                          One step brought her face to face with the shooter's father, where in a pivotal and poignant meeting, she was given an opportunity to forgive.

Blog Tour - When Mommy's Home with Me Review and Giveaway

About the book: With rollicking rhymes and fanciful images, this adorable picture book celebrates the special relationship between mothers and their children. Filled with stories of all kinds of mommies-like pilots and artists and scientists-this book shows how modern mothers still treasure that precious time spent together at home. A perfect book for moms and kids to enjoy this Mother’s Day or any time of the year!

My review: I loved this children's book! I love the pictures, each and every one of them is so detailed and just so much fun.

I loved the little poem, the way it rhymes is super cute. But I really loved the way it talks about the moms and the reasons that moms stay home with their kids. I loved the feeling that each and every mom has something that they are able to teach to and basically pass on to their kids. No matter what they did before, or during raising their kids.

And something that I found really fun was that there is a recipe for one of the treats in the back tha…
