Who doesn’t love to read a new Christmas story? I look forward all year for the Christmas Read season to begin. And I love Christmas With the Cowboy, Tina Radcliffe’s latest edition to the Big Heart Ranch series. This story is like one big family reunion and so much fun. A cowboy Scrooge is in for an awakening  when Emma and Zach meet. I love that Zach and Emma are not living in denial to themselves. They may not have a clue about how the other feels and they sure aren’t letting their own cat out of the bag, but at least they can identifyRead More →

I reread the first book titled If I Run, so I’d be up to speed for If I’m Found.   I’ve read several other series by Terri Blackstock and have felt my time was well spent on each one.

A Cry for Independence is a special story and today it upstages Pinterest. I met Joy online several years ago through the Scribes critique group withRead More →

Cover for Kiss of Deception

Rather than computer games or TV, reading is my entertainment, and I become frustrated when I can’t find a book to crawl into for a terrific adventure. I’d caught up on the latest releases of my favorite authors and had numerous other books that were either boring or had simple plots. Outside of Christian fiction I was disappointed by no depth to the morals and characters who couldn’t speak unless they used the most popular profanity. Give me a plot with depth, romance, adventure and make it contemporary. And they’re always better if they have a horse or two. Call me frustrated and hard toRead More →
