Reality television contestants are stuck on a remote island. Dream prize will go to the winner.
 
Their task: Discover which of the Seven Deadly Sins each contestant, including themselves, represents.
 
Problem: Each has a damning secret that could ruin his or her life.
 
Read this story, get ready for the ride of your life. Gripped from the start the story didn’t release me until the surprising end.
 
I found myself wanting to know each contestant’s secret. In a book that’s okay, but in real life not so. Maybe I’m no better than the ones who had something to hide.
 
Secrets create dark prisons. That’s why Jesus came to be the light. Evil can’t succeed when all is revealed.
 
I loved this story and its lesson.

Brad Cutler, 28, is preparing to get married. Yet, memories of his high school girlfriend surface and torment him. Brad must confront his past by visiting her before he can go onto the next chapter in his life.
 
What a powerful story that had to be told. Thank you, Karen, for telling it. As said in the book, “Everyone has something in their past.”
 
Following God isn’t always easy. Going back to fix a wrong is the right thing to do. Brad finds doing that may cost him everything. Isn’t that the Christian message? Risk everything for the cross?
 
This book touched areas in my life. Without giving anything away, I identified with Brad. I had to go back to those earlier years and straighten out a wrong I created. The fruit of doing what’s right paid off.

Boone Drake, head of the Chicago Police Department’s Major Case Squad feels something is about to go wrong, again. And it does.
Boone must go to Beijing at a time his wife, Haeley needs him the most. There he must infiltrate a human trafficking ring.
Action packed pages with fast-moving scenes. I enjoyed listening to this story. One of the characters (Jack) sounded like Clint Eastwood. I found myself thinking about the story in between listenings. With the scripture sprinkled into the story, I felt the story went to a higher level.

During her childhood, a young girl listens to her parents argue, divorce, and eventually die.

Alexandra Winslow writes crime stories to escape. Midway through college, she finishes a novel and publishes it under the pseudonym Alexander Green. This creates a double life that isolates her.


I enjoyed the omniscient point of view writing style of Steel. The story moved smoothly like a steady stream.

I like one particular line in the book, “Sex gets in the way of love.” That statement spoke volumes about the personality of Alex.

I’ll long remember Alexandria Winslow, and will always wonder how she could live in the shadows of greatness. As a writer and author myself, I felt encouraged.

What a great read and powerful ending.

Josh Spencer leaves his home in Virgina and seeks the frontier as a place to escape. 
 
Patrick and Elizabeth and their two children join a wagon train headed by Josh Spencer to become pioneers heading west.
 
Years ago I enjoyed all 38 books of the House of Winslow series. Over the Misty Mountains has the same spirit as the House of Winslow that I loved so dearly. Not only a historical novel, but an eternal message.
 
The characters were real down to earth people. I enjoyed the smooth read, the steady rhythm, and the exciting plot.  Add historical characters such as Daniel Boone, Little Carpenter and William/Lydia Bean, and an outstanding story is created. 
 
I look forward to the next books.

Bailey is planning a wedding and making decisions that will shape her future. 

Wow! What a book to end this series. For me, it’s at the perfect time. My daughter, on eclipse day, became engaged to be married.

This story was beautiful, a picture of the love God’s given to His bride. Love flowed from each page, causing the read to flow like a fast river. In two sittings, I experienced the story. 

There were surprises a long the way. A visit to past stories and past memories. That’s what makes the Baxter family stories the best.

I loved this story. I hated this story. The Biblical Adam and Eve lived in purity. (The part I loved.) They fell. (The part I hated.)
 
I had a less tainted view of the first couple until I read “First Family.” Alice did a great job in showing the results of sin. 
 
I’ve thought often of Adam and Eve, but not quite as dark and deep as this book portrays them. It caused me to think, to ponder the pain the parents felt when they had to give up the garden, then their son, to an eternal resting place within the earth and the sadness of losing their other son the same day. 
 
As a parent, I can’t imagine the hurt they experienced, the nightmares they lived. 
 
This book will stay with me for a long time. I appreciate Alice writing it, for it’s enriched my Bible study.
 
 
(Havah by Tosca Lee, the author of that book went deeper into the purity of the garden.)

Pearl Hossfuss, teacher, flees to the Dakotah Territory from her father’s arranged marriage.
 
Carl Hegland,  carpenter, leaves Minneapolis to find work in the Dakotah Territory.
 
Ruby Torvold, proprietor, continues to thrive in Little Missouri.
The characters were well developed and easily loved. Strength in character, Ruby continued to lead by listening to God.

Nestled in the Bad Lands of the Dakotah Territory, Little Missouri begins to grow. Progress, I love the word. The excitement fell off each page when the growth became apparent. 
 
One of my favorite scenes happened when Cat gave birth to kittens-in an underwear drawer. I grew up with cats and kittens were all around my house. 
 
I love reading about the old west, not sure I’d want to live there. Yet, the comradery seemed stronger during that period of time. Seemed like people needed each other more.

The ending took me by surprise.

Ruby Torvald and her sister, Opal have received an inheritance from their long-lost father who left the family years prior to seeking his fortune in the Black Hills.
 
They leave Chicago and arrive at the mining town of Medora to claim their inheritance. Ruby is shocked at what their father has left them.
 
I enjoy a strong protagonist, and Ruby didn’t disappoint. Under opposition, she pressed into the unknown.
 
I got a small taste of life in early America. The lawlessness, the rawness, and the humanness all combined to make a great story. That journey started as a train ride. (Stirred memories of our train ride in the Black Hills of the Dakotas)
 
What a great story. I look forward to the next in this series, now that Lauraine Snelling has become one of my favorite authors.

Real life situations and true to life struggles, make this an excellent read.  Andi, a missionary’s kid, now in college struggles to keep her purity.   Taz, in college with Andi, seeks to win more than Andi’s heart.
Fillmakers, Chase Ryan, and Keith Ellison seek to make Christian movies in a hostile Hollywood arena.
Relationships and marriages are strained, while sin gradually creeps in with its subtle hints that all is okay.
Weaving all the broken pieces together was God. After finishing the book remained a strong sense of prayer for my family, friends and me. What lurked in the shadows? Ready to destroy.
Great story. I can’t wait for the next in the series.
