This novel had to be a great deal of work with a huge amount of research. There is so much within the pages that reflect upon the time period. It holds fascinating facts and a solid story overall.
New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new love on the horizon. But Caroline’s world is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in September 1939—and then s...
Apart from dense information which slows down the narrative and a flat ending, "On This Foundation" is an engaging and entertaining read.
really hope that Beatty is going to fill more pages with adventures for Serafina. His well woven threads of mystery, the fantastic, suspense and heart touching story has captured my attention and I can imagine so much more.
The book is geared toward Christian women who like historical fiction and contemporary romance with a little mystery thrown in.
"Bathsheba" is a fascinating retelling of a biblical story which shows that God’s mercy is greater than the gravest of sins.
With its rich historical setting and incredible conflict, "Day of Atonement" has potential. However, because of its uneven plot and gratuitous violence, it is average.
All in all, this was a pleasant book to read. It was not as gripping from a mystery or suspense standpoint as I had hoped. Regardless, the characters and the writing style made it enjoyable.
I enjoy reading Western Romances with its familiar settings, action, and dialog with full hope that I would enjoy this one as well.
The characters are so richly developed that I instantly cared about them and then was angry at their father for causing the other characters so much unhappiness.

This book filled a need I didn't know I had for a good, old-fashioned western adventure.
The aspect of generations on this one piece of land touches something in me and makes the story all the more relatable.
What I expected to find in these five different heroines was some courage, spunk, drive, determination, and independence. I found that most of the stories fit my expectations.
Gerald, Ruby and Patrick all came alive on the page as well-developed characters with real hopes, dreams, and fears. None of them were perfect people (although Patrick came close!).
I love it when a book takes a slightly different tack and changes things up from what might be the typical genre formulation.
It was a unique storyline that needed to have the elements of the 1880s time period, the southwest setting, and The Pinkerton Detective Agency to work. It was so well developed, I'm sure I could draw out the main street to town...
Once again Connealy came up with a book idea that hasn’t been done before. I love the unique situations she puts her characters in and reading about how she gets them out!
Witemeyer never lets me down with her familiarity of the time period she sets her characters in, a flowing storyline with a solid theme and very human characters with self-image problems, fears and flickers of hope ignited by f...
This novel brings an edgy realism to the genre that I do not often see. I prepared for dry and predictable. What I received was anything but.
