Falling For You by Becky Wade

I don't think I have read a Becky Wade book that I haven't liked. Her newest release, Falling For You, followed that trend.

In this sequel to True To You which I reviewed last year, Willow Bradford must face her past when her ex-boyfriend shows back up in her life. Corbin Stewart is cajoled to recruit Willow as an investigator into a family mystery by his almost-niece, Charlotte. The three of them team up to figure out what happened in Charlotte's family.

Willow and Corbin are a study in opposites. Willow is a rule-following people-pleaser. Corbin is used to charming his way into getting what he wants with no care for the rules. The sparks between the two are hot, but their past still haunts them.

I loved this book. The characters were charming and endearing. I love that this series continues from book to book, though each can be read alone. It was fun to read as the characters grew and changed in their relationships to God, others and themselves. 

I definitely recommend this …

First Impressions by Debra White Smith

I am a total sucker for anything related to "Pride and Prejudice". I love it all. Funny story, I fell in love with the movie, not the book. I love the book in its own right, but I wouldn't have read it, if not for the movie. I can still remember sitting in the theater feeling so blown away by the story on the screen. I wanted more. The book filled in the holes, left by the movie and I love the whole story.

I recently read "First Impressions" by Debra White Smith and I was smitten. The book is a twist on the classic "Pride and Prejudice" plot, but it worked well. The characters personalities were slightly different from the characters that Austen wrote and of course, the modern day circumstances were too.

I didn't have any trouble following the story and though I knew the likely ending, I didn't want to stop reading. (That to me is a sign of a really great writer!) I highly recommend this book, if you love the classic, love the movie or have no c…

If I Live by Terri Blackstock

If I Live concludes the three-part If I Run series. What a conclusion it is. 

First off, let me recommend this series. I'm not much of a reader of psychological thrillers, but this one sucked me in and wouldn't let go. I could not put these books down. 

The book follows fugitive Casey Cox as she runs from the crooked cops who framed her for murder. Also on her trail, PI Dylan Roberts, hired by the victim's family to find Casey. 

Book three concludes the series and at points made me smile, tear up, drop my jaw and want to cheer. Seriously, go get this series. So good!

A copy of If I Live was provided to me by the publisher in exchange for a review. This is my honest feedback. I also purchased the first and second book in the series on my own.

Troubled Waters by Susan May Warren

Troubled Waters by Susan May Warren is book four in her Montana Rescue Series. It is also the first of the series that I have read. I loved it.  I can't wait to read the rest of the series. 

Sierra Rose fell in love with her boss, billionaire Ian Shaw. Then he fired her because of her secrets. Now she has a new secret and doesn't know how to tell him the truth. Will she find a way while on a fundraising expedition on his yacht? Or will things go horribly wrong?

The characters in this book seem so real. I now want to move to Montana and be their friends. Even though the situations in the book were not things that I relate to, they were so well explained and described that I had no trouble putting myself there. I didn't want to put this book down and each time I picked it up I found myself reading for longer than I intended. I absolutely enjoyed it and wholeheartedly recommend it.
