Book Tour Review: Leaving Halberd Peak

Image
  Trapped in this tiny town from birth, Sam Soren is probably going to die here, crushed by a falling beer sign in the family billiards hall. In a terrible mood ever since the greatest betrayal of his life became fodder for the gossip mill, he long ago made peace with his fate as the bastard of the county. That is, until Gretchen Clarke stumbles into his bar with trouble written all over her.    Armed with an easy smile and superhuman ability to roll with the punches, Gretchen is going places, and would have gotten there faster if her car hadn't broken down. The quirky residents of Halberd Peak open their hearts to her, and when tragedy strikes, she finds herself doing exactly what she swore she'd never do again: running toward the drama. Bound together by circumstances beyond their control, Sam and Gretchen discover an unexpected connection, but can their love survive when plans change? My Review: I really like the small town setting that author, Rowan Helaine developed for th

Book Review: Mt. Moriah’s Wake

Image
  Orphaned at age eight, JoAnna Rivers was raised by her eccentric aunt in the bucolic southern community of Mt. Moriah. Now a twenty-six-year old would-be writer, JoAnna faces several crossroads: in her marriage, in her career, and in her faith. She left home for Chicago in 1997 immediately following the murder of her best friend, Grace. Now she comes back to Mt. Moriah for the first time in four years to attend her aunt's funeral--and realizes that she must confront both the profound sorrow she feels over Grace's death and the mysterious guilt she carries. She must finally grieve. A hauntingly sweet story of love and loss that alternates between JoAnna's childhood in Mt. Moriah, her life in Chicago and her present encounters upon returning home,  Mt. Moriah's Wake  ponders deep questions: When we experience unspeakable tragedy, do we see ourselves as victim or survivor? Is it possible to regain happiness in the face of such? And how do we find our faith again, once it

Book Review: The Oracle

Image
  I friendzoned Hunter Lachlan because I thought he could never give me what I needed. After a decade of pushing him away, I don't recognize Las Vegas's new Don. Maybe my childhood best friend knew me better than I ever realized... And maybe, just maybe, he's the one man for whom I'll kneel. My Review I am a bit sad to report that my excitement for this book weaned. I loved the prior one. The chemistry between Hunter and Aurora was hot. Then you add in the cliffhanger that hyped up my excitement to read this book. For some reason I found the first third or so of this book to move really slow. It felt like the book was really long and could have been shorter and not really lost anything to the storyline. Aurora and Hunter were both different people. Which is not a bad thing as they both had went through a lot and grown. Yet, I felt like I was just reading about Aurora and Hunter but as people talking with no real connection. However, I stuck with this book as I did enjoy

Book Review: The Inmate

Image
  There are three rules Brooke Sullivan must follow as a new nurse practitioner at a men’s maximum-security prison: 1) Treat all prisoners with respect. 2) Never reveal any personal information. 3) Never EVER become too friendly with the inmates. But none of the staff at the prison knows Brooke has already broken the rules. Nobody knows about her intimate connection to Shane Nelson, one of the penitentiary’s most notorious and dangerous inmates. And they certainly don’t know that Shane was Brooke’s high school sweetheart—the star quarterback who is now spending the rest of his life in prison for a series of grisly murders. Or that Brooke's testimony was what put him there. But Shane knows. And he will never forget. My Review This is the first book I have read by this author. I was drawn into the story and the fatal night that changed Brooke and Shane's lives forever. I finished this book in a matter of a few days. While I have read many psychological thrillers, I did not see th
