Beautiful!!





He Calls You Beautiful 

"Hearing the Voice of Jesus in the Song Of Songs"

by Dee Brestin

"I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine" a Quote from Song of Solomon. This Quote comes from one of the most misunderstood books of the bible. It seems it gets overlooked by so many in the church. Dee Brestin takes the time to break this book down to help us understand it. God wrote us a love song that shows us how much love He has for us as His children. 

I love that she takes the chapter and breaks it down to where we can understand it. It does not matter if we are single, married or widowed, we are all alike in God's eyes. One of His Beloved!!!   This book can be used as an in depth bible study in a group setting or alone. I would recommend this book for all women to read.

This the newest novel from Janice Cantore, a retired Long Beach Police officer now an amazing supsense writer. Her works include the Pacific Coast Justice and Cold  Case Justice series. She now brings us a new series called Line of Duty. In the first book, Crisis Shot we meet Tess O'Rourke a commander of the East Division in Long Beach, California.

Backed by her fellow officers Tess endures a barrage of media and the public calling for her head on a platter. The only thing she can do is to find a job in the middle of no-where and restart her life.

When she finds an opening for a small town police chief, Tess jumps at the chance to start over in a new town. But winning over the residents of the small, backwater town of Rogue's Hollow, is going to be more difficult than Tess adjusting to her new role. Her first major case as the Police Chief, ends up being a missing person's case. The missing person is the pastor's wife, who has befriended Tess upon her arrival in town. The case gets more complicated when the cousin of the missing woman is found murdered. 

An unlikely ally is found in a sheriff Deputy Steve Logan, who has offered to help the new police chief. Tess and Steve set out to track down Rogue Hollows first murderer. Tess struggles to show she is truly the one suited for this job, while being pushed by the town council to solve this case.

Freedom's Ring!!




Freedom's Ring

by Heidi Chiavaroli


This book was one of the best books that I have ever read, it grabbed my attention from the first page. It is written in two very different time periods that at the same time connect thru the struggles that face each of the female characters. We meet Annie David in 2015 and Liberty Caldwell in 1770, both living in Boston in two different time periods. 

Still dealing with the aftermath of the Boston Masscare, Anne is struggling to find healing in her life. The guilt that weighs her down, over the injuries that her niece has suffered with from the bombing. When she learns the identity of the person who rescued her during the bombing, her life is turned upside down. She starts searching for the history of the original owner of the ring that has been in her possession since her accident.

When Liberty is rescued by a very unlikely rescuer, her life takes a different turn. Under the protection of a British Lieutenant, she finds herself falling for the enemy.  As the tensions increase between the British and the colonists, Liberty's world is shattered by the loss of her brother who she had just found. Feeling abandoned and alone, Liberty returns home; where she is attacked by a british captain. Not knowing where to turn, she runs away and goes into hiding. 


Two women, separated by many centuries are brought together across time. Both having to learn to face their fears and finding out where your true strength comes from. 

I truly loved this book, it took two stories and intertwined them together.

A beautiful story for faith believers!!

Wings of the Wind (Out From Egypt Book #3) by [Cossette, Connilyn]



Wings of the Wind


by Connilyn Cossette


The sequel to the Out From  Egypt  is Wings of the Wind, just like the first two books we are introduced to some very amazing characters. Several characters from the first two books have a part in this book, along with meeting Tobiah and Alanah. The dedication and love of Tobiah is very touching to the heart. A man who would choose to take a stranger as a wife,  to provide protection for her from the dangers around them. Alanah is very strong and determined woman who has never seen what true love looks like in her life. Raised in a household full of men, with not knowing a touch of a woman since she was a little girl. Two very different characters that meet in a very dangerous situation and overcome many obstacles in their path to love.  

I love reading biblical fiction, Connilyn Cossette takes a fresh look into the bible stories of our childhoods. As I was reading this book, I delighted in learning more about the history of that time period. The characters win your heart from the first time you meet them on the page to the end of the book. It is hard to let go of the series when it ends at the end of this book. The twists and turns of the story line kept me plunging forward till the end of the book. It is as mix of suspense and romance that makes a very good book to read.  


We find the Hebrews wandering in the desert near the land of Canaan. We meet a very brave Canaanite woman Alanah, whom lost her father and brothers in battle with the Hebrews. Choosing to avenge the deaths of her family, she disguises herself and sneaks out to battle.

Tobiah, a devoted Hebrew warrior has devoted his life to protecting his people. When he finds a unconscious woman on the battlefield among the dead. The only thing he knows is to find help for her and protect her from the dangers around them.

The turn of events throws both Tobiah and Alanah together as a married couple. Alanah does not want anything to do with living with the ones who killed her family. But her injuries force her to stay where she is under the protection of Tobiah as her husband.  As their time together passes Alanah sees a different side to her husband and the ways of his people. When danger presents itself causing possible harm to a loved one, Alanah makes a hard choice to protect them. Will Alanah and Tobaih be able to find each other? Also will they choose to stay as husband and wife?


I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read biblical fiction!!
