Moving Target by Lynette Eason

 Moving Target by Lynette Eason is a fast-paced book that captures the reader on the first page and keeps your attention throughout the journey. This is the latest in the Elite Guardians series and my favorite thus far. I enjoyed the story of Maddy and Quinn and how they were able to outwit their villain and escape. This novel has action and mystery along with a little romance. I was able to read this in one day and am looking forward to the next book in the series.

A Note Yet Unsung by Tamera Alexander

 A Note Yet Unsung by Tamera Alexander is a welcome addition to my readings this winter. This book takes place in Victorian Nashville and introduces us to Rebekah Carrington and Tate Whitcomb. Rebekah is a natural musician and a master of several instruments, her dream is to play in the male-dominated symphony. Tate is the director of the Nashville symphony and refuses her admittance. They both overcome numerous obstacles as they weave through the troubles of their pasts and realize they need each other. Very well written and nearly 400 pages, this is one to savor. I enjoyed every minute of this book except for the part when a character referred to a black man as a N*****. I thought that could have been left out or simply referred to as a slur.

Be Bold - A Coloring Devotional by Ellen Elliott

Coloring is the latest rage amongst adults and this book, Be Bold (a coloring devotional by Ellen Elliott), is the latest entry by Tyndale. Coloring is stated to be relaxing and perfect for any age. I like that this book features scriptures and devotions along with several pages towards the back for your own doodling. There is plenty to meditate on while you're coloring and it's all uplifting and will point your thoughts to the Lord. There are sixty-two pages of devotions/coloring and it will keep you busy for hours.
 Pages are clean and easy to read. Coloring pages are delightful and not too hard.

Life After by Katie Ganshert

Life After by Katie Ganshert is a beautifully written tale of a lone survivor's struggle with picking up the pieces after being in an attack on a train in Chicago. Autumn wakes in the hospital and remembers nothing of the attack, she learns she's the only one who made it out alive and becomes obsessed with the lives and deaths of the ones who didn't live.
This book was not at all what I expected it to be. After reading thousands of books in my lifetime there aren't many that veer from the normal story pattern. This one had twists I never saw coming and was truly a pleasure to read. It gripped my heart and I saw myself in the story and I also saw some friends.
This is new this spring by Waterbrook Press and I highly recommend it.
