TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – 12 DAYS AT BLEAKLY MANOR by MICHELLE GRIEP

 

THE BLURB:

A mysterious invitation to spend Christmas at an English manor home may bring danger…and love?

England, 1851: When Clara Chapman receives an intriguing invitation to spend Christmas at an English manor home, she is hesitant yet feels compelled to attend—for if she remains the duration of the twelve-day celebration, she is promised a sum of five hundred pounds.

But is she walking into danger? It appears so, especially when she comes face to face with one of the other guests—her former fiancé, Benjamin Lane.

Imprisoned unjustly, Ben wants revenge on whoever stole his honor. When he’s given the chance to gain his freedom, he jumps at it—and is faced with the anger of the woman he stood up at the altar. Brought together under mysterious circumstances, Clara and Ben discover that what they’ve been striving for isn’t what ultimately matters.

What matters most is what Christmas is all about . . . love.

THE AUTHOR:

 

I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I’ve been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write–except for that graffiti phase I went through as teenager.

 

 

 

 

 

MY REVIEW:

I expect nothing but a fantastic tale from Ms. Griep and this story does not disappoint! She immerses the reader in her stories with vivid prose and the vernacular of the era.

In a twist of Dickens meets Christie, this story is somewhat reminiscent of Ten Little Indians. A true Victorian Christmas tale, the story is set in a country estate in the English countryside. And in true Agatha Christie style, each of the key players receives a curious invitation to an English manor house for the duration of the twelve days of Christmas.

When Clara Chapman shows up at the manor, she is bewildered at the absence of their host. Strange things are afoot, and Clara wonders at the wisdom of remaining—especially when one of the other guests is her former fiancé, Benjamin Lane. As one danger and mishap follows another, and Ben feels they are being watched, each of the guests is on edge and wary of the others. How bitter their stay with such meager provisions—even orphans eat better. And with the lack of wood for the fireplaces, winter cold seeps into all but the drawing room.

Will Clara endure and earn the promised purse? Or will she succumb to the cold and hunger—and danger? What of Ben? Will he survive to gain his stolen freedom? Will love prevail over the lies of the past?

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – SWIMMING IN THE DEEP END by CHRISTINA SUZANN NELSON

                         

 

THE BLURB:

Jillian Connors has the perfect daughter: loving and smart, she’s an Olympic hopeful with a bright future. But when Gabby becomes pregnant, Jillian fears that future is lost. Worse, she must confront her own secret past and hope the decisions she’s made don’t drown their whole family.

Gabby can’t believe God let this happen to her. She knew the risks, but who thinks about that when they’re in love? Now she has to face the consequences–and the disappointed stares from everyone who thought she was the perfect Christian girl. At least she has the baby’s father, Travis. Nothing can tear them apart, right?

Margaret Owens had determined dreams for her son. She’s furious that Gabby’s pregnancy jeopardizes his college baseball scholarship and terrified that Travis will be trapped in a life of struggle and poverty–the life she’s tried so hard to save him from. She’ll do anything to protect him–even if it means forcing him to leave Gabby.

Stacey Meyers is aching for a child of her own. But the son she was meant to adopt was taken before she could hold him in her arms. It feels like she’ll never stop mourning; even the move to this new town hasn’t distracted her from the pain. How can she and her husband find peace? Is there any hope of a family in their future?

And in the midst of all this . . . an unborn baby. Whose arms will hold him in the end?

 

THE AUTHOR:

 

Christina Suzann Nelson writes stories featuring women who survive circumstances to live lives closer to God’s calling. She focuses on changing legacies from dysfunction to hope.

Her first novel, If We Make It Home, released from Kregel Publication September 2017, gleaned the honor of debut of the month from Library Journal. The book was recently named a BEST BOOK of 2017 by Library Journal.

The Oregon Christian Writers named Nelson the 2017 Writer of Promise.
In 2010, she was a finalist for the ACFW Genesis contest in both contemporary and women’s fiction. Her manuscript, Torn Edges, was named the 2014 overall winner in the ACFW Phoenix Rattler competition, a finalist in the 2015 ACFW Genesis, and won third place in the annual Idahope contest for unpublished novelists. Another of her manuscripts, The Azalea Sisters, made the semi-finals in the contemporary category of the ACFW Genesis for 2015.

For the past ten years, Christina has been a member of Oregon Christian Writers and American Christian Fiction Writers. She attends conferences and workshops throughout the year including the national ACFW conference. Within ACFW, Christina has served as the northwest zone director.

Christina lives in Oregon’s gorgeous Willamette Valley with her husband of twenty-five years and their four children. The family owns a small farm where the kids raise animals as 4H projects.

She is honored to be a member of the steering committee for Every Child, Benton and Linn County, where she has the opportunity to influence the lives of families and children in the foster care system.

 

MY REVIEW:

WOW!!! WOW!!! WOW!!!

Ms. Nelson’s story grips the reader from the first page and doesn’t let up. She takes a delicate and often taboo issue by the horns, and pulls it apart from the perspective of four different women; four characters, each with their own secrets and agony, and each entwining with the others. A heart wrenching and poignant story, elegant prose, and characters so real I felt their pain.

As each character spoke, she revealed more of her struggle and pain. The burden she bore. And as each character interacted with the others, truth seeped out and answers were born, a fitting and fulfilling solution that touches the hearts and lives of the characters, and of the reader.

Masterfully handled and beautifully told, Ms. Nelson brings to light a subject so many choose to overlook. She gives a face to the pain and a heart to answers that lie waiting to be found.

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – UNCHARTED JOURNEY by KEELY BROOKE KEITH

                                                                             

THE BLURB:

Young widow Eva Vestal assumes loneliness is God’s permanent plan for her life. She keeps busy by raising her son and co-managing the Inn at Falls Creek with her elderly father, but her heart yearns for more.

Solomon “Solo” Cotter has spent his life working with horses, but he secretly wants to write a book of the children’s stories his grandfather told him as a boy. He barters with Eva’s father for a 40-night stay at the inn, a needed respite from work to get his stories on paper.

Once Eva discovers the barter, she believes Solo is taking advantage of her father’s failing memory. But when tragedy strikes and Solo works hard to save the inn, Eva sees his true nature. As her heart stirs with feelings for Solo, she wrestles with the guilt of loving someone new.

Meanwhile, outside the Land…

Bailey Colburn arrives at the coordinates of the Land on the autumn equinox and finds nothing but ocean. The sun sets, ending Bailey’s dream of a safe and simple life with the family she’s never known. Just when she decides Justin Mercer lied about visiting a hidden land in the South Atlantic Ocean and meeting Bailey’s distant relatives, the atmosphere around the boat changes and ushers her into an uncharted world, but her entrance into the Land comes at a devastating price.

Uncharted Journey weaves past and future in this inspirational story of life in a hidden land. There is always room for you at the Colburns’ house in the quaint village of Good Springs. Join the Colburn family as they discover their purpose, find love, and protect the Land. Read Uncharted Journey today.

 

THE AUTHOR:

 

Keely Brooke Keith writes inspirational frontier-style fiction with a slight Sci-Fi twist, including The Land Uncharted (Shelf Unbound Notable Romance 2015) and Aboard Providence (2017 INSPY Awards Longlist). Born in St. Joseph, Missouri, Keely was a tree-climbing, baseball-loving 80s kid. She grew up in a family who moved often, which fueled her dreams of faraway lands. When she isn’t writing, Keely enjoys teaching home school lessons and playing bass guitar. Keely, her husband, and their daughter live on a hilltop south of Nashville, Tennessee.

 

 

 

 

 

 

MY REVIEW:

This is the most exciting book yet in the series! A double treat, Uncharted Journey traces the story of two members of the Land, Eva Vestal and Bailey Colburn, with a tie between the two.

Grief holds each of us differently, and Ms. Keith portrays Eva’s grieving heart so poignantly. From the outside looking in, it’s so easy to say, “Do this.” or “Don’t do that.” Kudos to Ms. Keith for portraying Eva’s suffering in such a real way.

Bailey struggled with a different kind of grief. As conflicting as it sounds, sometimes embracing a dream isn’t so easy. What Bailey had envisioned as smooth sailing dissipates in the reality of what is lost. Accepting her new circumstance challenges her in ways she hadn’t considered.

Well written, and skillfully woven between the two, this story tugs at the heart and begs the reader to keep turning pages.

Ms. Keith ends this book with a surprise and mystery that has this reviewer anxiously waiting for the next one!

THE BLURB:

In a secluded land, Sophia and Nicholas wrestle with love and faith, while in the outside world, a stunning discovery could change everything.

Sophia Ashton’s new medical assistant job comes with the perks of living on the Colburn property, which include being surrounded by a loving family—something she’s never known. During the job’s trial period, a patient puts Sophia’s career in jeopardy. Now she must prove her competence or lose her job and home.

Nicholas Vestal is working on a sheep farm to earn a starter flock, but before his contract is up, he inherits a house in the village. While fixing up the old house, he pursues Sophia Ashton, believing she is the woman God wants him to marry. But when Sophia’s difficult past blocks Nicholas’s plan, he must find a way to her heart.

Meanwhile, outside the Land…
When plant biologist Bailey Colburn is offered a research job, she knows Justin Mercer is playing her somehow. Working for the former naval flight officer sounds better than her other options in post-war Norfolk, even though Justin says he once met her long-lost relatives. But when Justin introduces Bailey to the mysterious gray leaf tree, his unbelievable claims change her world.

Uncharted Hope weaves past and future in this inspirational story of life in a hidden land. There is always room for you at the Colburns’ house in the quaint village of Good Springs. Join the Colburn family as they discover their purpose, find love, and protect the Land. Read Uncharted Hope today.

MY REVIEW:

I have come to love this series, and always look forward to each new story. Ms. Keith has done her research, and has created a most believable and plausible scenario. The Land, and the mysterious gray leaf tree are well thought out, and well written.

This reviewer is well familiar with the verbal taunts Sophia Ashton grew up with. And the doubts instilled by it, the struggle to believe in herself, and the fight to overcome it.

I appreciate the honor the characters maintain, and especially Nicholas Vestal in following tradition in order to court Sophia. I appreciated his patience with her as he wooed her, and I mentally encouraged Sophia to accept his tender overtures.

Reading the Uncharted Series is like visiting old friends with each new story.

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – THE TORY’S DAUGHTER by ANGELA K. COUCH

                                                                             

THE BLURB:

Burying his wife is the hardest thing Joseph Garnet has ever done—until he’s called to leave his young son and baby daughter to fight Iroquois raiders. When one of the marauders tries to steal his horse, the last thing he expects is to end up tussling with a female. The girl is wounded, leaving Joseph little choice but to haul her home to heal—an act that seems all too familiar.

Though Joseph doesn’t appear to remember her, Hannah Cunningham could never forget him. He rode with the mob that forced her two brothers into the Continental Army and drove her family from their home—all because of her father’s loyalties to The Crown. After five years with her mother’s tribe, the rebels and starvation have left her nothing but the driving need to find her brothers.

Compelled by a secret he’s held for far too long, Joseph agrees to help Hannah find what remains of her family. Though she begins to steal into his aching heart, he knows the truth will forever stand between them. Some things cannot be forgiven.

 

THE AUTHOR:

 

Angela K Couch is an award-winning author for her short stories, and a semi-finalist in ACFW’s 2015 Genesis Contest. Her childhood was spent listening to her father read chapters from his novels, and Angela decided young to follow his path. As a passionate believer in Christ, her faith permeates the stories she tells. Her martial arts training, experience with horses, and appreciation for good romance sneak in there, as well.

MY REVIEW:

Ms. Couch tells a story that brings history to life. She takes the reader into a world unfamiliar and unknown.

The nuances Ms. Couch has woven into her war torn story give depth, and stir the heart of the reader. Hannah and Joseph are drawn to each other, but fight the attraction, both believing their feelings would be rejected by the other, something this reviewer knows all too well.

Hannah’s desperation to find her brothers overshadows all else for her. And Joseph’s guilt compels him to help in her quest. Every mile is riddled with hardship, the threat of attack a constant frisson. The tension between Hannah and Joseph is tangible as the summer heat.

Ms. Couch builds her story one well-crafted word at a time, pulling the threads of her story taut, the anxiety penetrating, the danger palpable. I felt the nighttime chill and the heat of the summer afternoons.

This reviewer silently begged both Hannah and Joseph to let go of their doubts, and embrace each other, and happiness. I cried in the crushing moments, and wept at the bittersweet sacrifice. And cheered when they found their happy ending.

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME by PEPPER BASHAM

 

Welcome to the Blog Tour & Giveaway for When You Look at Me by Pepper Basham, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours.

 

Title: When You Look at Me
(Pleasant Gap Romance #2)
Author:
Pepper Basham
Publisher:
Woven Words Publications
Release Date:
October 25, 2018
Genre:
Inspirational Contemporary Romance

 

THE BLURB:

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 REVIEW:

Ms. Basham has done it again! Her signature Brittalachian stories take on a difficult topic—assault and an unwanted pregnancy. Ms. Basham writes with skill the struggle and fear Julia Jenkins experiences. And she writes Julia straight through them, each painful and difficult step and stretch of her wings.

Henry Wright has suffered his own set of soul crushing tangles. Tangles that have left him adrift in the sea of romance. Then along comes Julia.

 

Ms. Basham has taken two broken souls, woven the threads of their individual melodies together, and composed a tender love story.
