Words for Thought + A Special Note to Readers

#TBT : It’s gonna be worth the wait because God is writing your love story!

a- blog- from -the -heart

Hi everyone!  I had to to get a few things off my mind so I decided to do this post.;) So let’s begin….

I know Valentine’s Day is close at hand and many single young ladies out there  may be wondering along the lines of “Oh no I don’t have a boyfriend yet  or greater yet, why am I not married? I just wanted to encourage you a little bit. Every once in a while I need a pat on the back as well because it’s only natural to yearn for that God given mate. Be encouraged!  Your Waiting, Praying,and Serving  God is NOT in vain. God is still mindful of you! ALWAYS. There is nothing out of cater and EVERYTHING is working according to His plan. I also wanted to share the words below,

encouraging quotes for teens - Google Search #God #Love #Eternal

Oh, Lord, open our hearts and minds and lives to understand this depth of love You have for us.

Song of Solomon 2:16 My Beloved is mine and I am His - Bible Verse Scripture Vinyl Wall Art via Etsy

Yeah everyone talks being "single" as being a bad thing. I mean it's just a phase of life. And if you're a Christian you're never truly single because you have a relationship with the God of the universe that's way better than any relationship with a guy.

Be a lady. Be classy.

Well, that just about sums everything up! 🙂 …

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!

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 “It’s spring! + What I’m reading!~”

The Secret of the India Orchid~Nancy Campbell Allen~

The Secret of the India Orchid (Proper Romance)

 

 

~Synopsis~

Anthony Blake is in love with his best friend’s sister, Sophia Elliot. But his plans to court her are put on hold when he is forced to resume his role as an undercover spy for the Crown. A secret document listing the names of the entire network of British spies-including his own-has been stolen. To protect Sophia, Anthony cuts off all ties to her and exchanges his life as an honorable earl for the façade of a flirtatious playboy.

Heartbroken and confused, Sophia travels to India, hoping to find healing in one of the most exotic regions of the British Empire. But the exotic land isn’t as restful as she had hoped. Instead, she finds herself embroiled in a mystery of a missing sea captain, a possible murder, and a plot that could involve the prince of India. And when Anthony appears at the British Residency, asking questions and keeping his distance from her, she is stunned.

She still loves him, and, in her heart, she knows he loves her too. But how can she rebuild her relationship with him if he won’t confide in her? Does she dare offer her heart to him a second time, or will their love be lost under the India sun?

~My Review~

I’m always looking for something different and exciting to read. So, when I heard about this book I just knew I had to read it! Especially when I learned that the story took place in India. I’m a big fan of India and its culture. Also when I had read Edenbrooke and Blackmoore I knew I had to read this novel!

This is a new author to me so that was another plus because I don’t really like to step out of my comfort zone as it concerns authors and genres. I did decide to give this novel a try.

This book started out pretty well and it had a solid beginning. It kept my interest for quite a while. In the middle it did seem to stray a bit and after a while the novel seemed to be filler instead of the story I was hoping for.

To me, it wasn’t memorable as I thought it would be and I began to feel very disappointed. I’ll give this author another chance though because I love to read regency fiction. (3 stars)
