A Daring Venture~Elizabeth Camden~

 

A Daring Venture (Empire State, #2)

 

 

*My Review*

This was an awesome read about the sacrifices that we take for granted in our everyday lives.

In this novel, we get to know more about Nickolas  which we was one of the characters in her first book in this
series, A Dangerous Legacy. Nickolas was a wonderful character and he was funny.
The heroine,Rosalind was a very interesting character to read about as well and I love how the author
writes about very smart and accomplished women and how they had to overcome obstacles back in the day.

I can say as with most of her books this novel really drew me in from the start.

I read this novel in about 2 days! That is how good it was!

The story was overall well written, romantic and funny to read. I highly recommend this author and
I can’t wait to read whatever else this author comes out with!

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!

To the Farthest Shores~Elizabeth Camden~

To the Farthest Shores

 ~Synopsis~

Naval officer Ryan Gallagher broke Jenny’s heart six years ago when he abruptly disappeared. Now he’s returned but refuses to discuss what happened. Furious, Jenny has no notion of the impossible situation Ryan is in. With lives still at risk, he can’t tell Jenny the truth about his overseas mission–but he can’t bear to lose her again either.

~My Review~

Wow! Just wow! I fell in LOVE with Elizabeth Camden’s writing all over again.(I know I might say that just about every book that I’ve read by her but I can’t help myself.) I usually have her books on pre-order or whatever way I can find to get my hands on a copy of her books. I’m a fan of her novels and if you haven’t read any of her writing. I highly recommend her writing!

Anyway, about the book. I was so happy and thrilled that the author really went to another level!!
At first I was really worried that I wouldn’t like the main heroine in this story but I’m so glad to have had went on the journey with the heroine to see her ups and downs in the story.
I really loved the different culture that the author added in the story. It was a step in a the right direction I thought to include more diversity in Christian Fiction novels.
The story itself was touching and I devoured every last page. I can’t wait for her next book to come out!
The hero,Ryan, was dreamy!! Swoon. There are only a select few in my opinion that are swoon worthy heroes. Number one swoon worthy hero of the year. Yay! Check. lol.
The story flowed and it had meaning in every page. I loved the writing and I give this book 4.5 stars. 🙂

Here’s the cover for her next book,

A Dangerous Legacy

~Synopsis~

Lucy is determined to keep working as a telegraph operator at a news agency, even though the arrival of Sir Colin Beckwith threatens her position. When she discovers Colin’s shocking secret, she agrees to assist him if he helps her find her family’s stolen inheritance–not realizing that the trail leads into a web of treachery, danger, and conspiracy.

To be released: October 3, 2017!!

I can’t wait! 🙂

My List of Best Read Books for 2016!

Hello Ladies and Gents! It’s another year and by God’s grace I’m looking forward to bigger and greater things this year! I’m kinda disappointed in my list of books I read in 2016. I think 2016 was  a very strange year for me in more ways than one. I usually finish my Goodreads challenge before the year is out but not last year unfortunately. Hopefully this year I can do way better than last year. So without further ado, here’s my list of the best books I read in 2016. I had planned to read 80 books in 2016 but only finished 18 books. It’s a far cry I know. lol. I’m very positive about this year though. Hopefully I’ll have my post up soon about the books I’m looking forward to reading in 2017. See y’all soon. Peace! 🙂
