Book Review: The Light Leads to Love

Full disclosure, I have a story in this anthology which means this review is exclusive to this blog and probably also Goodreads because they let you review your own books.

First, a little about the anthology:

A mother comes face to face with the woman who would have murdered her baby.

A child who’s been betrayed by everyone hurts the only man who’s ever shown her kindness.

A teen stands at the crossroads of his impulses and his convictions.

A reformed addict needs help from a total stranger to protect her child.

Title: How to Study the Bible
Written By: Dwight L. Moody
Genre: Bible Study Helps/Non-fiction
Recommended Ages: Any

Introduction:

This book was amazing! I highlighted probably about 1/4 of it. It was interesting to note how similar the times were back in the late 1800s and now. So much of what D.L Moody said completely describes today.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Review: Fatal Trust

Title: Fatal Trust
Author: Todd M. Johnson
Genre: Suspense – Clean
Recommended Ages: 13 & up

This book was good. I enjoyed it since I like suspense books, but there were many times when I was confused by what I read and I kept expecting the book to say something Christian, but it was completely neutral. Fatal Trust was clean, but not Christian. Since it is published by Bethany House Publishers, I expected it to at least mention Christ in some way.

The characters were well-developed and well-rounded. The dialogue was witty, engaging, and exactly what it needed to be.

If you like suspense, I think you will like this book.

Note: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

Suit and Suitability: A Review

What would it be like to see Elizabeth Bennet in 1930’s clothes? What if Emma Woodhouse was the daughter of a car dealership owner? What if Marianne Dashwood was seeking to become a movie star in the golden age of film? The Vintage Jane Austen series explores the world of Jane Austen, set in 1930’s America. Five authors took on Jane Austen’s five most popular novels and retold them set in the depression era, remaining faithful to the original plots. As an extra bonus to the series, there is a collection of short stories that were inspired by Jane Austen.Check out the tour schedule to learn more about the other books.

In my blog post today, I’ll be sharing an interview with author Kelsey Bryant as well as a review of her book.
