Thrust into 1900’s India, the reader experiences culture shock with a touch of exotic.
Turbans, spicy foods, and silk.
 
While traveling by boat, Abby Frazer on her way to see her husband meets Major Geoff Edwards. The Major befriends Abby’s son, Cam. (As a reader, I loved traveling on the boat.)
 
Abby’s husband does not meet her at the dock. She must travel three days by train. I’ve read an article in the National Geographic about India’s trains. Glad I experienced in this book.
 
Rickshaws and India lifestyle made this a different kind of read. I loved it. There were tense situations as war and rumor of war hung low over the country.
 
Abby spent time with orphans. That touched my heart.
I give a book a five when it stirs my emotions. Shadowed in Silk did just that.

But that job separates him from his wife and child. When an injury brings him home, his wife is glad to have him back. But other issues cause struggles within the family, leading to distrust and hurt. Steele takes dangerous risks in his new work. The thriller plot thickens, as he seeks to save a life. But can he save his family?

Sky stops in Tucumcari on her way to visit her sister in California. She’s hurt and meets Dr. Doug Elliot.
First, I want to say, I enjoy the Route 66 novellas.

Second, A Trip to Remember dropped an emotional bomb.

I expected this to be a girl meets a guy and romance blossoms. Was I ever wrong. Not sure if Route 66 is curvy, but this read had a twist and a turn.

Five-Stars are for those books that leave an emotional imprint. Accomplished.
A great Sunday afternoon read. So good, I’ve downloaded the sequel, A Tucumcari Christmas. Amazon  KindleUnlimited – yes

I wanted to put this book down. Needed to stop reading. Couldn’t. It being that good, took away my sleeping time.
 
Action and suspense filled Dead Memories from the first page to the last. Reading kept me on the edge of my seat.
 
Robert Brady reminds me of a Christian version of Jack Reacher. (Hopefully, Jason writes 22 Brady books.) Robert, thrust into situations where his skills were tested,
shined. Lightning fast with the ability of a superhuman, Brady made a perfect character. In fact, my adventurous side would love to see a Brady versus Reacher. I suspect it’d be a draw.
 
Whom would you call if ISIS had an army of one hundred soldiers, and those jihadists were coming after you? If you said, Robert Brady, you’d be correct.
 
What a story. What an ending. I’m ready for the next book.

I’m hooked
on this series now. What a roller coaster ride, from the beginning page to the end. Pat Bowers reminds me of Alex Cross in James Patterson’s books. Great
characters. Pat’s daughter Tessa proved to be an interesting character. She took the story to another level, one I really enjoyed. Wit and cunning, she
used them both. The Illusionists – What an antagonist. Tricky and slick.
 
When I thought it couldn’t get worse, it did. The book read like a ticking time bomb, the ticking getting louder and closer as the end neared. And. What an ending. It kept me reading, refusing to release the book until the last page.

This is one of those books if a rating of greater than a five could be given, I would. I’ll do the next best thing and get the 2nd book.

Smooth writing and simple. Exactly how to enjoy a story. The characters were fun and interesting. Donna’s values demonstrated pure faith. 
 
The setting, a simpler time, left me with a “good” feeling. I can see myself reading this book again and again. It’s that good.

I read Ever After very slow, studying each page. I consider Karen Kingsbury a great author, one I’d like to emulate. Studying her style over a lifetime wouldn’t bring me close to understanding how she writes such moving stories. Her grasp of people, their personalities, conflicts and inner thoughts are so realistic. The depth of her writing brings the story into the real world.
 
In the book’s description, the reader is warned of a tragedy that will occur. It wasn’t difficult to figure out who or how, but the when was a mystery. Yet, as the time came, turning each page became more difficult. I didn’t want it to happen since I’d grown very fond of the character. The “what” of the tragedy remained hidden.
 
I’m not one to shed many tears, but with this book, they flowed on many occasions. When I thought it couldn’t hurt any deeper, it did.
Another great thing about this book: God spoke to the characters. Christianity was presented in an everyday way. Not at all religious.
 
Several years ago, I met an Iraqi lady. She had just moved to the United States. It made the war in Iraq personal. Mayassa was so grateful for America. Ever After made the Iraqi war personal showed the good the American soldiers did in Iraq. I know it’s true because I have friends that fought in Iraq who testified to the same things Karen wrote in Ever After.
 
Quotes I loved from the book: “Democracy will win in the end,” Justin Baker, Soldier.

“Some things were worth defending.”

Jean Stewart, with her mom, runs an ice cream business her father began. When she won’t sell the property, William Wainworth devises a plan to acquire the building.
 
I loved this story. It’s a quick read, taking me a little over two hours. The characters were interesting with a plot that kept my attention. I enjoyed Jo’s writing style, and I look forward to reading more books by her.
