A Light on the Hill (Cities of Refuge, #1)

 

 

*My Review*

First off, let me just brag about how beautiful this book cover is! Pretty much all the book covers from this
author is just breathtaking. Love it!

So, I discovered this author a while back and I’ve been keeping up with whatever novel she has written.
Needless to say, I’ve enjoyed the journey so far. Usually I read her books within a day or two.

A Light On the Hill’s story started out pretty well and I love how her beginnings of a novel just drew me in from the first page. I’ve always wondered about the cities of refuge that the Bible talks about so I think it’s
great that the author is taking a leap in writing about what could have been. I loved the heroine
Moriyah because she has such a strong character. Also the hero was pretty awesome as well. 😉

Though there were times I did have to skip ahead, I still enjoyed reading this novel. This author has become one
of my favorites when it comes to Biblical fiction. I highly recommend reading her books! I can’t wait for her
next book in this series!

A Dangerous Legacy~Elizabeth Camden~

A Dangerous Legacy (Empire State #1)

 

~Syopsis~

Lucy Drake’s mastery of Morse code has made her a valuable asset to the American news agencies as a telegrapher. But the sudden arrival of Sir Colin Beckwith at rival British news agency Reuters puts her hard-earned livelihood at risk. Newly arrived from London, Colin is talented, handsome, and insufferably charming.

Despite their rivalry, Lucy realizes Colin’s connections could be just what her family needs to turn the tide of their long legal battle over the fortune they were swindled out of forty years ago. When she negotiates an unlikely alliance with him, neither of them realizes how far the web of treachery they’re wading into will take them.

 

My Review

 

As you all know if you’ve followed my blog for a while, Elizabeth Camden is one of my all time favorite writers!
For the most part, her books are heartfelt,funny,and unforgettable.

I’m always waiting to read her books as soon as I can get my hands on a copy.

As always, this book had a very interesting beginning. I loved learning about the character Lucy. The mystery in the book
was very intriguing to read about. I think this might have been one of the first book by this author that really embraced mystery and suspense
into the story. I must say that were a little slow-moving moments in the story from time to time. I also felt that there could have been a little bit more chemistry between the two main characters.

Overall, I really enjoyed reading this novel. As always, I’m looking forward to reading more from Elizabeth Camden. Her next book comes out in June! I can’t wait!

It’s spring! + What I’m reading!~

 

The year’s at the spring and day’s at the morn; Morning’s at seven; The hillside’s dew-pearled; The lark’s on the wing; The snail’s on the thorn; God’s in His heaven - All’s right with the world! ~Robert Browning

Hi everyone! I know it has been a while. I hope to start back posting more in the near future. I just wanted to give an update about what I’m reading and I’m very excited that it’s spring!  Continue reading

Wings of the Wind~Connilyn Cossette

Wings of the Wind (Out from Egypt #3)

 

~Synopsis~

Alanah, a Canaanite, is no stranger to fighting and survival. When her family is killed in battle with the Hebrews, she disguises herself and sneaks onto the battlefield to avenge her family. The one thing she never counted on was surviving.
Tobiah, a Hebrew warrior, is shocked to find an unconscious, wounded woman among the Canaanite casualties. Compelled to bring her to a Hebrew healer back at their camp, he is soon confronted with a truth he can’t ignore: the only way to protect this enemy is to marry her.
Unused to being weak and vulnerable, Alanah submits to the marriage—for now. As she comes to know and respect Tobiah and his people, however, she begins to second-guess her plans of escape. But when her past has painfully unanticipated consequences, the tentative peace she’s found with Tobiah, the Hebrews, and Yahweh is shaken to the core. Can Alanah’s fierce heart and strength withstand the ensuing threats to her life and all she’s come to love?

 

~My Review~

WOW!! Can I just say that my review of this book will not do justice on how much I enjoyed and loved reading this novel! I read it in about an hour or so which is quick for me unless I’m really engrossed in a book it could take me a while to really get into a book. This book was the exception!! I’m really amazed at how this author can hit a home run three times straight especially with a series! I was amazed at how well the writing and the characters really ran together with harmony and I wish that this book didn’t have to end.

 I’m always for a strong female lead character. Which is why I LOVE Mulan so much! Anyway, I loved Alanah’s character I thought she had various qualities that I love reading about. I just loved joining in on the journey and reading about how the character discovered herself and God in such a beautiful redeeming way. I LOVED it!

I also loved how the author embraced another phenomenal character in the Bible in this novel.  I’m very picky when it comes to Biblical fiction because hey I can be when it comes to my WORD! I 100% promote this author’s writing! Not only am I enjoying a well thought out and planned novel but I’m swept away by the adventure,romance,and faith she weaves into her novels which is always a BIG plus for me! If you’re looking for something new and exciting or you love Biblical fiction then this is definitely the book for you!
