The Jack
Turner series got even better. After book 2, I didn’t think that possible, but id. Introduced are more members of Jack’s family. Renee, Jack’s Grandmother has an exciting story, set during World War II.
From the first bomb dropped on France, (Renee’s home) to Spitfire dogfights, the bombing
of London and the French resistance movement, the story kept me on the edge of my imagination. Tension, fear, love, hatred all experienced as the pages turned.

I couldn’t put the book down and lost sleep. Exciting and fast-paced story.

Amazon Review:

It’s a military thriller with a heart. Commander Mark Steele has an exciting job in Special Forces. Though it’s dangerous, he knows his work is critically important. 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?

The Book
Julie Matthews loves to sing, but due to an accident, she loses her voice.

Rick Matthews doesn’t know the solution for the tension in his marriage until the accident rekindles their love.

Faced with losing that new-found love for each other, Rick and Julie are forced to face the dysfunction that originally created the tension in their marriage.

My Thoughts
I love a book that raises questions and causes evaluation. Sticks and Stones was that type of book. Right from the start, I was drawn into the book. And from the beginning I began asking questions, waiting for the answers.
 
Everyone deals with some sort of dysfunction in relationships.  After all, we’re imperfect human beings.
 
Those dysfunctions are brought into a marriage and into a family. Throughout Sticks and Stones, we were able to view the mistakes, lies, and hurts. Then learn how to maneuver past those imperfections.
 
I highly recommend this book for all married couples. It’s a great book for healing of relationships, not only marriage but also parenting children. 
 
And it’s an exciting read.

The Legacy by Dan Walsh

  I have loved the Restoration Series and will miss the characters.
When your child leaves home, then travels down a destructive path, a parent struggles. 
As one of those struggling  parents, I identified with the characters in The Legacy.  I’m happy all those hurtful days are behind our family, but still, the emotions are there.   One of the best things I enjoyed about The Legacy and the entire Restoration series was how the characters had changed.
I
n the first book, The Dance, Jim Anderson, Dad and Husband, neglected his family over his business and nearly lost everything.  In the other books in the series showed how the actions of the leader of the home affected each person, and how they overcame those obstacles.
 
It’s a great five-star read and I highly recommend it.

Vacationing at Disney World is every family’s dream and for the Mitchell family, it’s going to happen. The magic of Disney touched the family until they traveled home, when Riley, the family dog, became lost.

 

 
So much about this book, I enjoyed. The interaction between dad and son. The love between parents and children, especially in a place like Disney World. (Which felt as though I were there.) And the power of love emanating from a dog. (Riley caused a homeless man to have hope.)
 
The contrast between the homeless camp and family at Disney added an element to the story.
 
Another point I enjoyed: The point of view through Riley’s eyes. That element, like the first book, “Rescuing Finley” was so very good.
 
The setting is Christmas time, but this is a book for all seasons. Many tears fell as I read the story. I’m already looking forward to the next book in this series.

This is the second time I’ve  read this book and it’s as powerful the second time around as the first. The imagery will stick with me for a long time. And when it wears off, I’ll read it again. It’s that good.

 
The power of belief is stronger than death. Love goes beyond this world, making this life a comma. Man would like to make it a period but man is not the final say, even if they take life.
 
My faith is stronger having read, The Martyr’s Song. Ted has an ability to look into a different realm and transport readers there.

Check it Out

I really enjoyed this book. As a Children’s Pastor, I’ve read a lot of parent help books, but nothing like this.
 
With her funny and witty personality, Julie wrote a book I couldn’t put down. Her family stories were entertaining, yet educating.
 
In the history lessons, I learned the rest of the story to 98.6 and Laura Ingalls Wilder. (Along with other lessons.)
 
The Bible lessons found in the book are applicable for today. And interesting.
 
With all these elements, Julie wove together a different way of looking at parenting. I was challenged, and now have a wider view of my role as a parent.
 
Questions such as: Should I allow my child to struggle? Or how much should I protect my child? And. How should I direct my child as they grow towards adulthood?
 
There are other issues Julie addressed that caused me to ask: “Why hadn’t I thought of that?”

 

I highly recommend this book for parents and grandparents. It’ll give you a new way of viewing parenting, and as you read the book, you’ll laugh along the way.

To say I loved this book would be an understatement. Rarely does a book come along with so many life-changing statements and interesting material. Chase the Lion is such a book. I know it’s going to become more valuable to me as time goes by. I’ll reread it, getting more gold from it.
 
Here are a few of the nuggets I received:

 

If you’re looking for an opportunity, you’ll always find one.

 

Well-managed failure is the leading cause of success.

 

There is always one moment in childhood when the door opens and lets the future in.
But some of the greatest miracles in my life have been on the other side of a closed door.
Sometimes you have to take a stand by taking a step.
As some point, you need to talk to your problems about God.
Moments you need to get your, “crazy on.”
You need a dream that scares you.

 

 
Along with multitudes of one-liners, the book is filled with history and stories of people’s lives. What a treasure.
 
A couple years ago, I attended a writer’s convention in Austin Texas. Mark, along with Ted Dekker, James Rubart and other writers, had a question and answer session. What stuck with me is that when another spoke, Mark would pull out his pen and paper and write down an important point. He’s collecting jewels.
 
I highly recommend this book. You’ll be challenged, changed and rearranged.

At Waterloo station, artist
Alison Schuyler meets Ian Devlin, and a love story begins.
 
A good book is interesting,
a great book, one gets so caught up in reading that time slips by without
effort. I found myself so entrenched in the pages of Where Treasure Hides that
hours flew by.
 
Love seems deeper when the
backdrop is war. World War II has begun, with danger everywhere. Two are in love but separated. Would they get back
together? Tension rose as each page turned.
 
Alison works with the underground
to save Jewish children. This element in the story brought many tears to my
eyes. I couldn’t help but get a little closer to my children.
 
Where Treasure Hides by
Johnnie Alexander has become one of my favorite reads. After reading the last
page, I found myself missing the characters and reviewing the scenes.
 
This is most definitely a Five-Star Read, and I look forward to more books by
Johnnie.

Action filled, suspense driven – two phrases that describe
this 
book. I started reading Tracking game, and couldn’t put it down. Scene
after scene drew me deeper into the story,
a
story that could someday be front-page news
. (But, I hope not.)
 
John Knox and Malik, both exciting characters, made the read
more colorful. They were main characters in Jason’s other books. (The Knox
Mission Trio Book Set) I enjoyed getting to know them better.
 
I like books that affect me emotionally,
and this book did just that. It gave me a greater appreciation for the freedoms
I enjoy, and for America that God has given us. With that said, the writing is
on the wall and now written in The Tracking Game.
 
I look forward with
anticipation to the next book. Jason is a gifted writer with his hands on the
pulse of this country. I hope he’s wrong, but I fear he’s right.

Calandra watches a vampire become a Christian. As Raven changes and becomes more human with each passing day, Calandra becomes attracted to him, even though she’s
engaged to be married.
 
My Thoughts

 

I’m not a fan of vampires. Never have been. However, I’ve liked the writing of
Ben from Splickety magazines. Moreover, I heard him speak at a Writer’s Conference in Florida. Therefore, I thought I’d give Blood for Blood a read.


 
I’m glad I did because I enjoyed this book. Throughout the entire story, there was never a dull
moment. The suspense kept me going all the way to the end. And what an ending. Wow!  
 
 
The question, “What if a Vampire got Save,” intrigued me. I had to know more. As I learned, I met all types of people, saved, real Christians and fake Christians and everyone in between.
 
I loved the book.
