The Scarlet Thread

The Scarlet Thread is an adultery story with a sort of blame-the-victim twist. Sierra and Alejandro (Alex) Madrid, once high school sweethearts, have now been married - with two small children - for about ten years. They are very happy living the American dream in a small California town when Alex d ...

On Wings of Deliverance

Since most romantic suspense seems geared toward crime and action with little rumination on the moral issues of crime and punishment, I was not quite sure what to expect from an inspirational romantic suspense novel. For obvious reasons, a novel written with a consideration of the Christian lif ...

Wings of Morning

Most inspirationals I come across tend to have American settings, so it was nice to see something a little different. Morgan's historical is set during a time of great religious and political upheval in Scotland, so I must admit that I had high expectations for this book. Sadly, they just weren't ...

In Sheep's Clothing

I chose to review In Sheep’s Clothing because the setting and premise sounded very interesting. The book is about an American missionary who gets into trouble in contemporary Russia and must flee for her life. Since Susan May Warren is actually a former missionary who served in Russia, I figured t ...

A Patchwork Family

My first word of advice to anyone who may read this book: Do not read the back cover blurb! Though the front cover art is very nice indeed (they even got the colors of the dogs right - I was impressed), the back cover blurb spills almost every major plot spoiler in the book.

Heavens to Betsy

Heavens to Betsy is an interesting blend of Chick Lit and Inspirational Fiction - a combination I haven’t run across before. It made for a quick read and was both fun and touching. Betsy Blessing was aptly named for her vocation – she’s a woman of the cloth; specifically, the assistant past ...

Secrets

Kristen Heitzmann's Secrets is a book that sounded much more interesting than it turned out to be. The premise seemed to offer mystery and romance in a beautiful setting. The scenery is nice enough, but the story moves so gradually that it never really takes off. Lance Michelli cam ...

The Marriage Wish

I am not sure if The Marriage Wish is a straight reprint or a rewrite of a book first published in 1998. Either way, I don't understand why they brought it back. Although a reader can respect the subject matter and the emotions of the story, the book is preachy, the writing style amateurish, and th ...

The Perfect Match

When I first started to read The Perfect Match, it seemed as though the author was going to break new ground in Christian contemporary romance. Susan May Warren initially presents readers with a professional woman holding a leadership role in a male-dominated profession along with a romance in which ...

Where Heaven Begins

Roseanne Bittner has written many action-filled historical romances set in the American West with vivid settings and memorable characters that often reflect the author's personal faith. Having read several of her historicals, I eagerly anticipated her first inspirational romance. But, while Where He ...
