Mercy Triumphs ~ Jana Kelley

Book 3 of the series and just as great as the other 2 books.  The journey of this book takes on the continuing lives of Mia, Halimah (Sara) and Rania.  We experience their trials and tribulations of being on a mission to spread God's word.  As each women is in a different country, they are all tied to each other in special ways.  Will they survive or be sentenced to death because of their beliefs?

I recommend this book and the whole series to everyone at any age.  Each book is a page turner.  I couldn't this book down, just wanted to know what was going to happen. This series is one that stays with you and makes you think.  When you read these books you will want to talk to your friends about these women and what they endure on their journeys for Christ.   Even if you haven't read book 1, 2, or 3 they can be read as a stand alone.  I would suggest you read them all and get the most out of this series.  Highly recommend you to buy these books today...!

The New American Heart Association Cookbook 9th Edition ~ American Heart Association

This cookbook is new and has additional recipes that are heart health and low fat.  The book is hardcover with a variety of meals, deserts and appetizers.  In addition to the recipes, there is information on cooking techniques, shopping, ingredients and how to eat healthy with everyday ingredients that you have in your pantry.

I would recommend this to those that want a great variety and easy to make foods, while being good for your heart.  This book is jammed packed with information and details of cooking healthy and heart friendly foods.   I really liked of how many different foods you can cook, the downside is there are no photos.  I would have liked for some photos to be in the book so that you can see what the dish would look like.  All in all, if you are buying for the heart healthy option, this is a good resource book.

So close to amazing ~ KariAnne Wood

This is the story of KariAnne moving to a new house in a new state, miles from all her friends and family.   She does a great job of combining her own personal story with God's way.  She tells of how God has certain plans in our life and we have to learn to have the faith and follow His lead.   As she shares her story from moving, renovating a home, making new friends and dealing with so many changes that are different then what she is used to.

This book was different then what I was expecting, in a great way.  I would recommend this to anyone that is going through a life change, difficult situation or just wants a good relaxing read.  The book contains at the end of each chapter a DIY project, that are easy and quaint projects that you can do.  This is a great gift book if you have a friend doing renovations or enjoys home craft projects.  The hard cover and heavy paper pages, make it a book of great quality and the content has a lot of quantity for the price.  Very impressed with her story and the way she writes.

Beneath Copper Falls ~ Colleen Coble

This is part of the Rock Harbor Series, however, it can be read as a stand alone.  When Dana escapes from an abusive fiancĂ©' to Rock Harbor, little does she know what a journey she will be on.  Dana meets Boone, who has many scars on the outside and emotional scars on the inside that he must overcome.  Both become friends along with the suspense and mysteries they must over come.  The suspense begins when Dana working as a 911 dispatcher takes a call from her friend in need of help, she must now face her past and what to do. This is a page turner from beginning to end and keeps you guessing in each chapter of the book.... you will be surprised at the friendships and drama this book holds.  As usual, this book is not predictable and keeps you guessing to the very end.

I would recommend this to all Colleen Coble fans as she does not fail to deliver the books we love to read.  This can be read as a stand alone and will make you want to read more of her books.  If you like suspense, drama and a little romance you will definitely be satisfied with this book.

Dark Deception, Defenders of Justice Series #2 ~ Nancy Mehl

This is book # 2 in the Defenders of Justice series.  This is the story taking place in the small town of Shelter Cove in Arkansas.  Kate is the only survivor of the attack from serial killer that happened on her and her twin sister.  When years later new evidence appears, she must go into the witness protection program.  She will only go to the trial if she is allowed to have Tony, the one who saved her from before.  He agrees and is put to the test again to save Kate from all evil.

I would recommend this to those that like a very suspenseful and eventful read.  You will enjoy this page turning from the beginning to the end.  This book can be read as a standstill, as I have not read book #1 and was able to read and keep reading to the very end without any problems.

The Divide ~ Jolina Petersheim

This is Book #2 and the conclusion of the story.  The book starts where book #1 ends, Leora has survived and continues to keep the new community going.  The story brings together the families that were broken up from the power outage that they are trying to survive through.  This book has the Mennonite community making decisions for their survival and future. 

I would recommend this book to those that have read #1 as this starts exactly where book it ends.  If you haven't read #1 you might be a little confused and loose out of the many of the real effects this book has.  If you have read #1 then you need to read this one as it will wrap up and leave you wanting more...... this story has so many twist, turns and is loaded with suspense that will keep you reading to the end.
