Cynthia Ruchti is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. She is able to create a story unlike others on the market, they have depth and characters who seem like an old friend. A Fragile Hope is the story of one couple and how easily life comes between them and they let the importance of each other slip away. I enjoyed this story until the last few pages when it seemed like it was just trying to be over. The different characters who came into Josiah's life when he needed them provided the hope he was looking for and guidance he needed. I really enjoyed the snippets from Karin's mind when she was in the hospital. Very good book that embraces the importance of keeping your spouse first in marriage.

Sandpiper Cove by Irene Hannon is a sweet romance. A little too sweet for my taste. I lost interest in this book when I was about 3/4 through it. It seemed to drag on a little too much for me. I did not like the interaction between the pastor and the priest, it felt weird (I'm a pastor's wife and have never seen this type of interaction between two ministers) and immature and left me feeling uneasy. The book itself has a nice theme of grace and forgiveness to it. I would recommend it to fans of Denise Hunter.
I love Irene Hannon's suspense books, they are page-turners that keep my attention the whole way through.

Tranquility is exactly what I crave. I need it like I need water. This prayer and reflection coloring journal is a beautiful taste of tranquility. The pages are full of modern pictures and timeless phrases, designed to inspire and uplift. There are prompts for the user to follow to allow them to take stock of their lives and enjoy what they have as they remember whose they are. I love every page of this book and can't wait to engage in some of the activities.
Here are a few pages:
Looks like a lot of fun, doesn't it?

Pursued by Lisa Harris is the third installment in The Nikki Boyd Files. I loved that this book opened with action and didn't let go until the end. It was very easy to become engaged with the story and characters. I wish every reading experience was like this one. Lisa writes a compelling action suspense book and manages to keep it a clean read. Very well written and I look forward to many more hours with this author's works.
