TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – WEDDINGS, WILLOWS, AND REVISED EXPECTATIONS by V. JOY PALMER

 

 

THE BLURB

Seventeen years after being orphaned, Apryl Burns and her twin sister Courtney have their own expectations for life. While Courtney continues to shine at everything, Apryl holds fast to the mantra that as long as her potato chip stash remains intact, then she’ll be fine.

But when their beloved grandmother ends up injured and unable to manage her struggling antique store, Courtney makes it their mission to revamp the business and save what’s left of their family’s legacy. Despite rampant doubts in her abilities, Apryl finds herself trapped under the weight of family loyalty as they transition to a wedding venue decorating service. Soon shes forced to ask (translation: blackmail) their grandmother’s renter/handyman, Chance McFarland, for help, an arrangement that is made even worse by the fact that Chance is her former (ahem, and current) crush.

 

THE AUTHOR

 

Joy Palmer is the author of Love, Lace, and Minor Alterations and a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. She is also an avid blogger and co-founder of Snack Time Devotions. In her spare time, Joy is an unprofessional chocolate connoisseur/binger, and she loves acting crazy and drinking coffee with the teens she mentors. When Joy isn’t urging the elves that live in her computer to write, she’s hanging out with her husband, their adorable baby girl, and their socially awkward pets.

 

 

 

MY REVIEW

This has got to be the funnest read ever! Ms. Palmer’s style is so personable, like sitting in a coffee shop telling the story. And the humor, nay, snark! Apryl especially.

Then again, I wanted to throttle Apryl so many times for her snarly attitude, even knowing it was borne of deep heart wounds.

Not so different for Chance, minus the attitude. But the deep wounds that curled him in a protective shell.

A smattering of malapropisms are easily overlooked on account of the endless wit and banter. And underneath it all, Ms. Palmer sows deep and profound truths. Truth that exposes lies, and heals shattered hearts.

This reviewer identified a little too well with Apryl’s self-doubt and criticism, if not her antagonistic attitude.

Overall, an enjoyable read. Enjoyable enough to prompt me to read more by this author.

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – THE MEMORY HOUSE by RACHEL HAUCK

 

                                                                            

THE BLURB

Embracing the future means remembering the past . . .

When Beck Holiday lost her father in the North Tower on 9/11, she also lost her memories of him. Eighteen years later, she’s a tough New York City cop burdened with a damaging secret, suspended for misconduct, and struggling to get her life in order. Meanwhile a mysterious letter arrives informing her she’s inherited a house along Florida’s northern coast, and what she discovers there will change her life forever. Matters of the heart only become more complicated when she runs into handsome Bruno Endicott, a driven sports agent who fondly recalls the connection they shared as teenagers. But Beck doesn’t remember that either.

Decades earlier, widow Everleigh Applegate lives a steady, uneventful life with her widowed mother after a tornado ripped through Waco, Texas, and destroyed her new, young married life. When she runs into old high school friend Don Callahan, she begins to yearn for change. Yet no matter how much she longs to love again, she is hindered by a secret she can never share.

Fifty years separate the women but through the power of love and miracle of faith, they each find healing in a beautiful Victorian known affectionately as The Memory House.

MY REVIEW

The best stories will get under your skin, and The Memory House surely got under mine.

I have come to adore stories with dual timelines, and Ms. Hauck has crafted one of the best I’ve read, weaving four main characters in two different eras into one single, page-turning story.

 

How often do we let our fear or our past hold us from our future?

How many times do we let criticism and harsh words—our own or those spoken to us and at us—cripple us?

How many times do we let our goals and plans—no matter how well-intended and altruistic—hinder us from being present in the now?

 

Each of the characters in this story, Everleigh and Don, Beck and Bruno, succumbed to criticisms and fears. Tragedy and disaster linked Everleigh and Beck across five decades. Determined to succeed, Don and Bruno both rose about their barriers, holding out a life line of love and holding fast till Everleigh and Beck are on solid ground.

The heartache in this story, the struggle to survive—and the will to thrive.

 

And the Memory House itself. Aside from this reviewer’s love of design and all things Victorian, the place was, in fact, magical, anointed even. A place of healing, for both Everleigh and Beck. A house of memories preserved, and memories restored.

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY-on-SATURDAY – BOOK REVIEW – MATCH ME IF YOU CAN by KRISTA PHILLIPS

  

                                                                           

THE BLURB

There is no way this matchmaking thing is going to work…
Ava Raleigh is going to strangle her best friend. Conned into going on a trip to the Bahamas for “Matchmaking” Week, Ava determines to do everything she can to not be matched.

Former NFL football player Sean Jackson is only on this trip because he loves his mother–nothing more. Sure, he feels guilty that some woman is paired with him and will be disappointed that he isn’t interested–but that’s bound to happen to most of the couples anyway, right?

Will this unwilling match end up finding love after all, or will the past come back to haunt them both?

 

RESORT TO ROMANCE SERIES

It’s Matchmaking Week at an all-inclusive resort on a private island in the Bahamas. Each guest has been expertly paired and is here to enjoy one full week with their match. While there’s no money-back guarantee on the paid trip, the participants are guaranteed to find love!

MY REVIEW

Just the cutest story ever! In her signature style, Ms. Phillips takes the cutest meet-cute and blends it with brushes of hesitation and skeletons in the closets, giving the reader a delightful tale of love, and faith that conquers all.

Talk about jealous! An all-expense paid trip to the Bahamas! This reviewer could use a little sun-n-sand time! But when Ava discovers what her bestie has done, not only is she steaming mad, but she grouses her way through the resort meet-n-greet. And smack into—literally—her “match” for the week.

Sean is no happier being wrangled into his week on the island, and has every intention to make the most of his time flying solo.

Begrudgingly, and with gritted teeth, Ava and Sean take on the resort requirements to spend time together. Ms. Phillips whittles down their resistance piece by piece, reeling them both in from wallowing in resistance.

I loved how Ms. Phillips ignited little sparks with each activity Ava and Sean attended, how he encouraged her to try new things without pushing. I especially loved how Ava emerged from her self-imposed shell, and allowed herself to enjoy her island vacation—and entertain the idea of romance.

Short and sweet, this is a quirky and enjoyable story.

BLOGWORDS – Tuesday 9 April 2019 – TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – THE GOVERNESS OF PENWYTHE HALL by SARAH E. LADD

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – THE GOVERNESS OF PENWYTHE HALL by SARAH E. LADD

 

 

THE BLURB

Blamed for her husband’s death, Cordelia Greythorne fled Cornwall and accepted a governess position to begin a new life. Years later her employer’s unexpected death and his last request for her to watch over his five children force her to reevaluate. She can’t abandon the children now that they’ve lost both parents, but their new guardian lives at the timeworn Penwythe Hall . . . back on the Cornish coast she’s tried desperately to forget.

Jac Twethewey is determined to revive Penwythe Hall’s once-flourishing apple orchards, and he’ll stop at nothing to see his struggling estate profitable again. He hasn’t heard from his brother in years, so when his nieces, nephews, and their governess arrive unannounced, he battles both grief at his brother’s death and bewilderment over this sudden responsibility. Jac’s priorities shift as the children take up residence in the ancient halls, but their secretive governess—and the mystery shrouding her past—proves to be a disruption to his carefully laid plans.

Rich with family secrets, lingering danger, and the captivating allure of new love, this first book in the Cornwall series introduces us to the Twethewey family and their search for peace, justice, and love on the Cornish coast.

 

 

THE AUTHOR

 

Sarah E. Ladd has always loved the Regency period — the clothes, the music, the literature and the art. A college trip to England and Scotland confirmed her interest in the time period and gave her idea of what life would’ve looked like in era. It wasn’t until 2010 that Ladd began writing seriously. Shortly after, Ladd released the first book in the Whispers on the Moors series. Book one of the series, The Heiress of Winterwood, was the recipient of the 2011 ACFW Genesis Award for historical romance.

 

 

 

 

 

MY REVIEW

Accepting one’s fate is inevitable. Whether with resignation and defeat, or with grace and courage is the defining difference.

Cordelia Greythorne had done the former, leaving the life she once knew, taking on a position that had been beneath her station, and tucking any hopes and dreams she once had away in a dark and forgotten corner of her mind.

Jac Trethewey had one purpose in life, to resurrect Penwythe Hall to its former glory and prosperity. He had no time and little use for children.

Until the day his estranged brother’s children—ages five to fourteen—arrive at his doorstep, orphaned and given to his care.

 

Ms. Ladd starts this story off with jarring tragedy, and smothers it with conflict and emotion to the last page. Inner tension and turmoil mount as both Delia and Jac deny what their hearts are so clearly trying to convey. Circumstances swirl around them both, elevating the tension and turmoil—and Ms. Ladd doesn’t let up!

More than one turn of phrase seemed out of place to the era, but the story kept this reader glued to the pages. The interaction between Jac and Delia, the adjustments the children were forced to make—both Delia and Jac’s understanding with them as they sorted out their grief and their upturned world.

And pirates! No swashbuckling, these, but brutal and vicious and greedy. The twists Ms. Ladd wove into her story were unexpected, making the story more adventurous than it already was.

BLOGWORDS – Tuesday 2 April 2019 – TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – THE BAGGAGE HANDLER by DAVID RAWLINGS

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – THE BAGGAGE HANDLER by DAVID RAWLINGS

 Welcome to the Blog Tour for The Baggage Handler by David Rawlings with JustRead Publicity Tours!

                                                                             

Title: The Baggage Handler
Author: David Rawlings
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Genre: Magical Realism / Christian Allegory Fiction
Release Date: March 5, 2019

 

THE BLURB:

In a similar vein to The Traveler’s Gift by Andy Andrews or Dinner with a Perfect Stranger by David Gregory, The Baggage Handler is a contemporary story that explores one question: What baggage are you carrying?

 

A hothead businessman coming to the city for a showdown meeting to save his job.

A mother of three hoping to survive the days at her sister’s house before her niece’s wedding.

And a young artist pursuing his father’s dream so he can keep his own alive.

When David, Gillian, and Michael each take the wrong suitcase from baggage claim, the airline directs them to retrieve their bags at a mysterious facility in a deserted part of the city. There they meet the enigmatic Baggage Handler, who shows them there is more in their baggage than what they have packed, and carrying it with them is slowing them down in ways they can’t imagine. And they must deal with it before they can leave.

In this modern-day parable about the burdens that weigh us down, David Rawlings issues an inspiring invitation to lighten the load.

MY REVIEW:

AH-mazing story! Profound truths!

Not since Looking Glass Lies by Varina Denman (2017) has a book touched me so deeply. No, this book probed into me. Made me look at myself and examine my soul. Forced me to see things—baggage—I thought were long gone…

Mr. Rawlings takes his characters—and the reader—on a deep heart journey.

The prose of this story is artistic, the impact deep and profound. Each of the three main characters, David, Gillian, and Michael, met the Baggage Handler in a seeming logistical mix-up.

Mr. Rawlings has each of the three unpack the contents of their baggage and examine it. In true parable form, as the characters see what they’ve been toting around, so, too, does the reader.

This reviewer identified readily with Gillian, recognizing some of the baggage she owned. My heart squeezed as she struggled against the weight of it, resisting, even, the desire to release her grip on it.

Michael, too, carried baggage familiar to this reviewer. Not so much David; David’s baggage made me sad. (no spoilers)

A remarkable book, a story wonderfully crafted, three lives intersected and three stories woven into one.

 

I had the pleasure of interviewing David a couple of years ago.

BLOGWORDS – Tuesday 26 March 2019 – TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – DYING ON EDISTO by C. HOPE CLARK

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – DYING ON EDISTO by C. HOPE CLARK

                                                                             

THE BLURB:

One death. Two detectives. And unexpected backup.
A Callie Morgan and Carolina Slade crossover! (A standalone mystery)

When a renowned—and now dead—travel blogger washes ashore on the banks of Indigo Plantation, Police Chief Callie Morgan of Edisto Beach agrees to head the investigation as a favor to the county sheriff, whose reasons are as questionable as the death itself.

When death turns to murder and a watchdog from the county makes her investigation difficult, Callie reluctantly turns to Carolina Slade and Wayne Largo, vacationing agents with the Department of Agriculture. Because poison is growing on this plantation, and someone knows how to use it well.

 

THE AUTHOR:

Hope Clark is founder of FundsforWriters.com , a writer’s resource awarded 101 Best Websites for Writers by Writer’s Digest Magazine each year for over a decade. Her weekly publications reach 40,000 readers. She works from her study overlooking Lake Murray in beautiful central South Carolina.

Hope comes alive at conferences across the country, from Mississippi to Oklahoma, from Pennsylvania to Florida, South Carolina to Iowa. She motivates and educates writers to step up, take charge, and create their careers. Her latest FFW release often discussed at conferences is The Shy Writer Reborn: An Introverted Writer’s Wake-up Call.

Hope, however, is most excited in her mystery fiction. She’s the author of The Carolina Slade Mystery Series, published by Bell Bridge Books, Memphis, TN. With an agriculture degree from Clemson University and a two-decade history of working with US Dept of Agriculture, Hope can walk the walk of protagonist Carolina Slade who reviewers are falling in love with per the long list of five-star reviews at Amazon.

However, Hope branched out with The Edisto Island Mysteries in 2014 with Murder on Edisto, Edisto Jinx in 2015, and Echoes of Edisto in summer 2016. Her writing voice now well seasoned, she dives into a coastal world with Callie Jean Morgan, who finds that the beach isn’t all that relaxing. The series is set on Edisto Beach, South Carolina, Hope’s second home.

 

MY REVIEW:

I am now officially a fan of Chief Callie Morgan and Carolina Slade, and will be reading as many of Ms. Clark’s books as I can.

As an author, I enjoyed the merging of two different series. As a reader, I enjoyed the two main characters getting acquainted. How they both sized the other up—and had definite opinions on the other one.

 

The story was edgy and delicious, and Ms. Clark certainly kept this reader turning pages. I wilted in the humidity that steamed off the pages. While not actually Edisto, I live in the state and have been to the coast, and Ms. Clark’s story brought it all vividly to life.

I wanted to throttle a certain Charleston detective for his Neanderthal mentality. Or seeming Neanderthal mentality. I didn’t trust “Sweet,” though I didn’t truly suspect him of murder. Security Guard Marion seemed worthless in his position, and the pirate, Drummond, was as annoying as the gnats on the beach.

 

So many suspected, each of them with legitimate motive for doing the guy in. And only Chief Morgan was true to the case, even in the face of blatant opposition. Her courage and integrity was not only admirable, but authentic, and I was glad to see her and Slade finally come to terms and work together to solve the case.

 

One tiny clue tipped this reader to the murderer—but even so, too many people had reason to want the guy gone, and I had to read to the end to see who actually did the deed.

 

NOTE: To my readers who are off put by cuss words, there is some vulgar language in this book.

BLOGWORDS – Tuesday 19 March 2019 – TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – THE CURSE OF MISTY WAYFAIR by JAIME JO WRIGHT

TUESDAY REVIEWS-DAY – BOOK REVIEW – THE CURSE OF MISTY WAYFAIR by JAIME JO WRIGHT

                                                                             

THE BLURB:

Left at an orphanage as a child, Thea Reed vowed to find her mother someday. Now grown, her search takes her to Pleasant Valley, Wisconsin, in 1908. When clues lead her to a mental asylum, Thea uses her experience as a post-mortem photographer to gain access and assist groundskeeper Simeon Coyle in photographing the patients and uncovering the secrets within. However, she never expected her personal quest would reawaken the legend of Misty Wayfair, a murdered woman who allegedly haunts the area and whose appearance portends death.

A century later, Heidi Lane receives a troubling letter from her mother–who is battling dementia–compelling her to travel to Pleasant Valley for answers to her own questions of identity. When she catches sight of a ghostly woman who haunts the asylum ruins in the woods, the long-standing story of Misty Wayfair returns–and with it, Heidi’s fear for her own life.

As two women across time seek answers about their identities and heritage, can they overcome the threat of the mysterious curse that has them inextricably intertwined?

 

THE AUTHOR:

 

Professional coffee drinker & ECPA/Publisher’s Weekly best-selling author, Jaime Jo Wright resides in the hills of Wisconsin writing spirited turn-of-the-century romance stained with suspense. Coffee fuels her snarky personality. She lives in Neverland with her Cap’n Hook who stole her heart and will not give it back, their little fairy TinkerBell, and a very mischievous Peter Pan. The foursome embark on scores of adventure that only make her fall more wildly in love with romance and intrigue.

Jaime lives in dreamland, exists in reality, and invites you to join her adventures at jaimejowright.com!

 

 

 

 

 

MY REVIEW:

The story was, as in Ms. Wright’s previous novel (The House on Foster Hill) taut and compelling; the telling this time, not so much. I found it disjointed and tedious at times, but the story and the characters held and kept my attention.

Mental illness plays such a role in this story, almost like a character itself, and Ms. Wright portrays it with elegance and care. The havoc on the family, the lingering effects, the trickle-down to unsuspecting family and friends. The ghastly treatment in times past.

 

Apart from her propensity to bail and run, I identified far too well with Heidi—her sense of worthlessness, her lack of purpose or confidence, or identity even; I have known that standard all too well. But that crippling push, that drive, to please, to appease. And the devastating realization that she never would be good enough.

Oh! I fought with Heidi, urging her to believe in herself, to let love in. I felt the panic, and utter despair. And I wept with her.

Thea, on the other hand, though she didn’t know her own roots, was quite brazen for a young woman in 1908. I applauded her courage, and only wished I might have ventured to investigate and discover the answers she sought. Rather the opposite to Heidi’s defeatist mindset, Thea forged on because she had nothing to lose.

As with every good mystery, this story has a surprise twist at the end. And what a surprise it was, too! Two actually.

I left this story knowing Heidi would be all right and that Thea found her answers, and I was glad to have met them both.
