Promo Blast for Live Without You

LWY Kindle Cover

Author: Sarah Grace Grzy

Blurb: Piper Redding is a loner, but lonely. Everyone she loves has abandoned her and opening her heart to others is just asking for more pain. She can’t help but blame herself for her brother’s tragic death six years ago, and in her guilt, she shuts herself off from the world. No one could love her—not even the God who promised to be there for her but wasn’t.

LWY Quote 1

For paramedic Ezra Bryant, failure is not an option. He’s had enough of it, and only by God’s grace is he able to put it behind him. But when a traumatic event brings Piper’s greatest fear and Ezra’s failures to light, can they use that event to allow God to mend their broken pieces? Can love triumph over fear, and grace over guilt?

img_0888

Living Without You addresses the pain and loneliness that comes from feeling guilty over the death of a loved one.  I can not begin to imagine the pain and heartache that would come from that kind of loss.  Piper is strong yet she needs someone to walk alongside her.  At the same time, Ezra finds himself caught up looking after Piper, his best friend’s sister.

This book illustrates how even times of utter despair, someone can reach out to God for answers.  Even when we feel the farthest from God, we can still talk to Him and desire answers.  I expect a book set during the holiday season to be filled with lightness and happiness instead of death, nightmares, violence, and loneliness.  But this book pulled me into the story.

So check it out for yourself.

Author Bio: Sarah Grace Grzy is a voracious reader, and if it weren’t for this crazy thing called ‘Life,’ she’d be tempted to spend all her days in front of a wood stove, book in one hand, coffee mug in the other.

LWY Quote 2

A lover of learning, she finds enjoyment in many things and has more hobbies than she knows what to do with. Sarah Grace is a freelance web and graphic designer, and when not working, spending time with her ever-growing family, or reading, she can be found painting, playing the piano, or fangirling with her sisters and friends. Sarah Grace inhabits the State of Great Lakes, and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else–unless it meant she could have a baby penguin, in which case, she’d gladly move to the South Pole.

Promo Blast for Unwilling Promise

Unwilling Promise

 

Book Back Cover Copy:

Klarysa Tutko, a young single mother, moves to Caribou, Minnesota,
where her family is now living, to put her life back in order. All she
wants is to leave the past in the past; though a family friend has
other ideas and persuades her to make a promise that she is unwilling
to keep.

img_0888

Unwilling Promise includes elements of abuse, death, as well as attempts to put lives back together.  I found the book was somewhat enjoyable to read, but I will not say it was my favorite book.  I felt the story was somewhat easy to figure out what was going to happen next at times.  At other times,  I found it difficult to concentrate on the story.

I find it difficult to imagine my best friend asking me to marry her husband after her death.  At the same time, I can not imagine trying to rebuild a life after divorce either.  I have seen the effects divorce can have on someone because my parents divorced when I was in my twenties. The one wish I would have for this book would be faith to play a more prominent role in the story.

Check it out for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

Reviews and Giveaway for Mistletoe Melody and Mistletoe Mission

About the Books

Book:  Mistletoe Melody and Mistletoe Mission

Author: Stacey Weeks

Genre: Contemporary inspirational romance

Release Date: Book 1 (December 1, 2018) Book 2 (December 1, 2019)

MistletoeMelody_w12697_750Mistletoe Melody:

Former musician, Melody Staff, spends Christmas at a bed and breakfast in the village of Mistletoe Meadows. While everyone sings familiar carols of Christ drawing near, Melody stumbles over misplaced notes. Her recent diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis has scared off her fiancé and thrust her life into a grand pause. She’s not sure her heart will ever sing again.

Quentin Oxford has endured a devastating year. His preteen daughter suffered a stroke, and they’ve grieved his wife’s sudden death, but the Lord coaxes a surprising refrain from Quentin’s heart as God rewrites his and Melody’s score into a holiday love song that will last for Christmases to come.

Mistletoe Mission: MistletoeMission_w12873_750

While her own relationships always end up doomed, Emily Colt is still determined to create happily-ever-afters through her wedding and event planning business. In hopes of expanding her business, she enters her latest project–staging the Christmas wedding of the year–into a town-wide contest. But between crossing paths with the first man to break her heart and dodging a saboteur, she doubts even career success is within her grasp.

Jilted pastor, Luca Wilson, fled to the mission field to escape a broken heart. All the hurt rushes back when he returns home to officiate his cousin’s wedding, and he finds Emily, the girl to whom he once promised forever, organizing the celebration. Despite his lost faith in love, their unforeseen reunion rekindles a spark, and Luca vows to help her save her struggling business. But to succeed, they will have to learn what it means to trust each other and believe in the God of Christmas miracles.

Mistletoe Melody Review

Perhaps because our family’s lives are in flux right now as we wait for military orders to move us to our next and final duty location, I can relate to Melody’s story.  At the same time, I can not imagine the devastation Quentin must be feeling with the death of his wife and his daughter’s stroke. Stacey Weeks does a masterful job of pulling her readers into the story.

With a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, Melody can understand Janie, Quentin’s daughter, in a way no one else can.  This story touches the heart and soul.  It illustrates the power of having faith in God.

Mistletoe Mission Review:

Mistletoe Mission demonstrates the power of second chances and God’s love.  Emily and Lucas need to find the power of God’s love.  He’s been jilted.  She wants to create happily ever afters through her wedding planning business. Melody wants her to find the same happiness she found with Quentin in Mistletoe Melody.

These two books weave together to create an inspirational and heart-warming pair of stories.  So check them out for yourself.

I received a copy of these books for my fair and honest review.

More from Stacey

It is strange, sometimes, what inspires a story. At the time of writing Mistletoe Melody, the ten-year-old daughter of a good friend was on the recovery side of a massive stroke. This young girl inspired Janie, and she gave the character her contagious smile, a mischievous pre-teen sense of humor, and a fierce love for family. You don’t read all of Janie’s story in Mistletoe Melody, but perhaps you will in a later novella.

Melody was the result of my lovely twenty-something niece receiving a shocking diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. She endured painful tests, had hopes raised and dashed, and was blessed when the Lord saw fit to work through a drug trial to ease her suffering. Watching her life, her plans, and the things she assumed were a given for her future get shaken to their core sent me to the Scriptures.

Not too long before drafting Mistletoe Mission (book two set in Mistletoe Meadows), my husband and I travelled to Haiti. As our driver transported us from the airport to the compound on which we stayed for the duration of our trip, he pointed in the general direction of the beach that receives cruise ships and tourists. He said that portion of Haiti is separated from the rest and is considered by some to be the most beautiful section of Haiti. I disagree.

To be fair, I didn’t visit the cleaned-up beach just around the other side of the mountain, but I saw something most tourists do not get to see. I met the people and visited several in their homes. I witnessed the determination and hard work that life requires from them. I observed a light in their eyes, fueled by a love for Jesus. There is nothing more beautiful than a person on fire for the Lord, a person who is ready to be a light in a dark land.

Luca’s character is loosely based on the Director of Missions and Compassion at Hope Bible Church in Oakville, Ontario. He arranged our trip – my first overseas mission trip – and it changed my life. I have huge respect for the work he is doing, and I am thrilled to see how God is blessing the work.

Another real-life connection that made its way into Mistletoe Mission is a business that inspired the fictional start-up I called One Village. Little by Little is a business for mission committed to empowering Haitian parents. Little by Little sells the Morse Code bracelet featured in Mistletoe Mission. I fell in love with the concept of this business, and it was my delight to write a fictional version into the story. You can visit Little by Little’s website and order a bracelet like the one featured in the book (or maybe you’ll win the one I am giving away on this tour!). http://www.littlebylittle.ca/store/p326/morse-code-bracelet.html

Be blessed this holiday as you seek the Lord who has done and is doing great things.

Stacey

Alana Terry does a remarkable job of writing Christian Suspense novels that pull the reader into the stories.  I always find myself unwilling to put her books down until I have finished them, and this book is no exception.  I find it hard to imagine what it would be like to have to deal with a memory loss along with losing those nearest and dearest to me.

I love suspense novels that keep me guessing until the end about how the story will end.  This book provides the perfect level of suspense along with a message of faith.  I wanted to find out how Mia’s story would end.

One of my husband’s favorite verses is Romans 8:28 which states, And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”  This book does a fantastic job of illustrating that point.  Truly this is a book worth reading.  Mia is a character whose story is worth listening to, so check out this book for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

About the Author

alana terryAlana is a pastor’s wife, homeschooling mom, self-diagnosed chicken lady, and Christian suspense author. Her novels have won awards from Women of Faith, Book Club Network, Grace Awards, Readers’ Favorite, and more. Alana’s passion for social justice, human rights, and religious freedom shines through her writing, and her books are known for raising tough questions without preaching. She and her family live in rural Alaska where the northern lights in the winter and midnight sun in the summer make hauling water, surviving the annual mosquito apocalypse, and cleaning goat stalls in negative forty degrees worth every second.

 

More from Alana

I love writing Christian fiction suspense. I have multiple series for sale and one of the things my readers have grown to appreciate is how many of their favorite characters show up in more than one series. Another aspect of my books that readers’ enjoy is the mystery, intrigue, and twists and turns involved as they reach the final page.

My new novel, Forget Me Now, has all the favorite elements mentioned above, but includes a new psychological thriller element that I hope readers will love as much as I loved bringing it to them. This novel asks the question, “What would you do if you woke up to find three months of your memory entirely gone? Who would you turn to for answers during that confusing time … and how would you react if you began to question the ones you turned to for the truth?

Read all about how Mia handles a predicament just like this (except even more dangerous) in Forget Me Now, complete with all the thrills and gripping suspense you’ve grown to love from Alana Terry novels as well as the reminder that God is always in control.

If you want, let me know your thoughts after you’ve had a chance to dive into this thriller that is truly unforgettable by emailing me at alana@alanaterry.com.

Review and the Giveaway of The Wedding Dress Christmas

The Wedding Dress FB Banner About the Book

Book:  The Wedding Dress Christmas

Author: Rachel Hauck

Genre: Romance, Christmas

Release Date: October 22, 2019

The Wedding Dress Christmas CoverDecember covers quaint Heart’s Bend, Tennessee with a blanket of white and the glitter of Christmas lights.

For JoJo Castle there’s no place like home. It’s her safe place. Her one-time love of adventure ended when life in the big city shattered her hopes and dreams. Now that she’s returned to Hearts Bend, she never wants to leave again.

Buck Mathews, the biggest country singing sensation in decades, has the world on a string – his guitar strings, to be exact. However, when news of his mother’s illness sends him back to Hearts Bend for the holiday season, he remembers how good it can be to live among family and friends.

Working with her cousin Haley in The Wedding Shop, JoJo has no aspirations of love. Leaving home, surrendering her heart again, is just too risky.

When she runs into her friend and high school crush Buck Mathews, she discovers Love might have other plans for her[BV1] .

Buck’s career is on the verge of an momentous leap. But seeing JoJo awakens feelings he’d buried long ago. Falling in love is easy, but winning her heart will take more than one of his melodic tunes and clever lyrics.

JoJo and Buck want opposite things for their lives, leaving no room for compromise. Can love, especially the kind that touches hearts at Christmastime, overcome her fears andhis quest for greatness?

When a very special gown – the wedding dress – begins to make its presence known, JoJo and Buck’s hearts bend in a way neither ever thought possible.

Having read The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck, I was pleased to have the opportunity to read The Wedding Dress Christmas.  Working in a wedding gown shop when you have no significant other seems to be a terrible.  Having experienced something devastating in  Dallas, JoJo has returned to her hometown.  She is involved in all things Christmas when she discovers her best friend from high school is back in town.  Buck is a famous singer and songwriter.  The storyline is well-developed and well-paced.

Whether you have read the previous stories in this collection or not, you will enjoy this book and be able to follow the storyline.  I love the combination of Christmas and weddings.  The characters pull you into their world and are enjoyable to get to know.

This book illustrates how sometimes you have to turn things over to God and see where He leads you.  So check it out for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

More From Rachel

Hello Royal Rockstar Readers!

I’m thrilled to share The Wedding Dress Christmas with you. I’ve heard from so many how much The Wedding Dress has touched them, and as I noodled over new story ideas, my thoughts drifted toward the wedding dress and Christmas. What’s more romantic than a Christmas wedding?

This novella is set in Hearts Bend, Tennessee, the fictional town ofThe Wedding Chapel and The Wedding Shop. Even if you’ve never read one of books inThe Wedding Collection, you’ll enjoy this story, the mystery of the dress, and the women whose lives it changed.

I love weddings. They remind us of the purity and the hope of love, the power of commitment. Something powerful is released when two people pledge to spend their lives together, loving and serving one another in both good and bad times. Every wedding I attend reminds me of the vows I made to my husband and I sign up all over again.

Stories are a powerful reflection of life. Yes, fictional stories are often told with wild hyperbole, but that’s what makes them fun to read.

I also love wedding stories because they remind us of God’s love for us, and that one day there will be the grandest wedding of them all. Isn’t it wonderful that God planned a wedding before He created the earth?

In The Wedding Dress Christmas, JoJo and Buck have their issues, but love proves strong enough to conquer them all.

Thanks for going on this little tour with me and The Wedding Dress Christmas.

Yours,

Rachel

Review for The Dating Charade

The Dating Charade FB Banner

About the Book

Book:  The Dating Charade

Author: Melissa Ferguson

Genre: Contemporary Romantic Fiction, Romantic  Comedy

Release Date: December 3, 2019

The Dating Charade coverCassie Everson is an expert at escaping bad first dates. And, after years of meeting, greeting, and running from the men who try to woo her, Cassie is almost ready to retire her hopes for a husband—and children—altogether.

But fate has other plans, and Cassie’s online dating profile catches the eye of firefighter Jett Bentley. In Jett’s memory, Cassie Everson is the unreachable girl-of-legend from their high school days. Nervously, he messages her, setting off a chain of events that forces a reluctant Cassie back into the dating game.

No one is more surprised than Cassie when her first date with Jett is a knockout. But when they both go home and find three children dropped in their laps—each—they independently decide to do the right and mature thing: hide the kids from each other while sorting it all out. What could go wrong?

Melissa Ferguson’s hilarious and warmhearted debut reminds us that love can come in very small packages—and that sometimes our best-laid plans aren’t nearly as rewarding and fun as the surprises that come our way.
