Betrayal by Robin Lee Hatcher


I'm giving away a copy of this book and the first book, Belonging, in the Where the Heart Lives series to one lucky reader! Leave a comment if you are interested, I'll pick a winner on January 7th.

Betrayal is the second book in Robin Lee Hatcher's Where the Heart Lives series. The story is set in the western United States during the turn of the century. A lone wanderer finds himself on the ranch of a young widow. Not knowing why, he asks her for help and she agrees to give it to him. The two of them are both Christians, but have the shared experience of developing their faith in a very private way, he because he had no one to share it with while on a journey to find his sisters and she because of being in an abusive relationship with her husband for many years.
The two of them learn to express their faith together and become much more than land owner and cow hand. Through the story, they begin to care for one another and fall in love.
The story is an enjoyable read with many reminders that God has better plans than we do. And that sometimes, we have to give up things that we hold dear, in order to gain something that is even better.
If you want to take a little journey into the days of the pioneers and cow ranchers, this will be a nice adventure.

Copies of this book were given to me by Zondervan for the purpose of review as well as an additional copy to share. I'm never obligated to say nice things about the books that I read.

Sweet Caroline by Kelda Poynot

  First off, my copy of Sweet Caroline  (aff link) is not a gifted review book, I spent my well earned Amazon No-Rush Rewards money on this book. Second of all, this is not my standard close door kind of romance. Third of all, this is a really fun read. Caroline is a hard working young lady that is doing all that she can to make ends meet and to get her graduate degree. Part of that work is renting out the room above her garage. When she answers the phone of an unknown number, believing it's a future tenant, she has no idea how much her life is about to change.  The young man on the other end of that call, Hashim, is tall, dark, and mysterious in all the right ways. The story quickly moves from the girl next door falling for a stranger to a fight for their lives. And in true real life fashion, those fights aren't just with external enemies but the ones we carry within.  It's an entertaining story of Caroline and Hashim, discovering their love for each other and fighting to

Project 52: Good Friday is low key

We had a wonderful Holy week, full of celebrations, one of my favorites was the Good Friday celebration.  But it was emotionally and physically draining.  By the time that evening rolled around, we weren't up for much of anything.  We ended up having a game night on our bed with crackers, cheese and salami.  It was fun, we played cribbage, and In a Pickle (which we determined is not for two people with little to no brain power).  I'm looking forward to this Friday because Joel is off the entire week, which should mean more energy and maybe something creative!
