Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner


Wooing Cadie McCaffrey
Bethany Turner
Revell, A Division of Baker Publishing
Release Day:  May 21, 2019

Cadie and Will have been a couple for four years, but lately Cadie feels like it might not be a forever relationship.  When a lack of communication leads to a mistake and a breakup, Will finally realizes he needs to win Cadie back – and plans to woo her with as many rom-com tactics as he can.

Wooing Cadie McCaffrey is told in both the first person (Cadie’s point of view) and third person (Will’s point of view).  Each chapter is titled, which is something you don’t see a lot of anymore, and I thought that was a cute idea.

Unfortunately, this was not the book for me and I did not finish reading it.  To read many positive reviews from those who completed the book, visit Wooing Cadie McCaffrey on Goodreads.

On a Summer Tide – Three Sisters Island Book One by Suzanne Woods Fisher


This book is crazy good!  On a Summer Tide is such a treat!!

A little bit rugged, a little bit beachy, a little bit stuck in time (no wi-fi?!?), the setting of Three Sisters Island is incredibly charming!!

I adored the characters!  The Grayson family is super easy to connect with.  The island locals are an animated bunch!  One of my favorite events in the story was when the entire town came together for a meeting.  I was laughing out loud – such a fun scene!

I was completely stunned by a plot twist and found myself wiping away tears of many, many different emotions from my eyes.  I can’t wait to see where this series goes as the Grayson family adjusts to their new lives on the island!

Five Brilliant Stars!  What a wonderful addition to Suzanne Woods Fisher’s collection!  I absolutely cannot wait for the rest of this series!!  On a Summer Tide is available now – order today from Christian Book Distributors.

A Cuppa Trouble – The CafFUNated Mysteries Book Two by Angela Ruth Strong


Grab a cup of coffee and a comfy chair!  Tandy and Marissa are back and as funny as ever!

A Cuppa Trouble was filled with witty banter, animated characters and excellent comedic timing!  The suspense really amped up towards the end, with the culprit remaining a secret the entire time!  I was genuinely surprised with the reveal!
This book was a super fun read and positively the definition of a cozy mystery!  It’s also quite “punny”!  I was excited to read an excerpt from the next book in the series, A Latte Difficulty – I can’t wait for its release!


I highly recommend this book to fans of romance, suspense, mystery and caffeine!

My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren


My first Susan May Warren book is…in the books!

My Foolish Heart is the story of Caleb and Isadora, two broken people who long for healing.  I enjoyed this book!  The Christian message is woven throughout the story naturally and does not feel like an afterthought – nicely done!

If you’re a fan of Christian contemporary romances, you will enjoy My Foolish Heart!  This is the fourth book in the author’s Deep Haven Series.  I never once felt like I was missing out on any details about the town or its people.  I recommend this as a standalone novel and I hope to go back and read the other books in this series!

I borrowed a copy of this book from the local public library.  A review was not requested or required.  All opinions expressed are my own.

A Place to Belong – A Maple Valley Novella by Melissa Tagg


Well, that was pretty fantastic!

The pace was perfect, the romance was timed well, there’s suspense and angst and then you’re crying as something oh-so-important happens and then it’s over and you’re like, so totally happy because you just read a fantastic book!!

A Place to Belong by Melissa Tagg takes place in beloved Maple Valley, filled with all the quirk and charm that belongs in a small, charming and quirky town.  The characters are fantastic, the town is fantastic and the story was pretty fantastic, too!

All the feels, all the stars, all the things go to A Place to Belong!

Cover Reveal – A Cuppa Trouble by Angela Ruth Strong

Good morning!

Happy Monday and Happy National Beverage Day!!  I’m joining in on a really fun cover reveal for the next book in The CafFUNated Mysteries Series by author Angela Ruth Strong.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane to the first book, A Caffeine Conundrum:

Book Blurb from Goodreads:  

Solving a murder mystery is harder when you don’t trust your partner…or their taste in beverages.

Sassy city girl Tandy Brandt moves to the small town of Grace Springs to start a coffee shop, never imagining she’ll be competing with local beauty queen Marissa Alexander and her dream of running a tea house. Unfortunately, the current store owner dies before selling the location to either of them, and they both become murder suspects.

The unlikely pair team up in an attempt to discover the real killer, though with the secrets in Tandy’s past and Marissa’s infamous clumsiness, they could be their own worst enemies. Despite their differences, they follow clues to question a sweet, apple pie baking antique store owner, a GQ Santa in the retirement center, and a hipster millionaire with no social skills. Will they be able to figure out whodunit and prove their innocence before one of them goes to jail…or worse?


I really enjoyed A Caffeine Conundrum and I’m happy to share the cover for book two titled A Cuppa Trouble!











Isn’t this so cute?!?!  A Cuppa Trouble takes place near Valentine’s Day and I think the cover is so fitting!

About A Cuppa Trouble: 

Plans for a Valentine’s Day grand opening of a small town coffee shop go awry when the first customer is killed.  Evidence points toward the victim being mixed up in a car theft ring, but shop owners Tandy and Marissa have reason to believe he was framed.  An assortment of suspects–from a pink-haired heir to Tandy’s charming ex–all seem to know a little too much about grand theft auto.

Without approval from either their boyfriends or the gum-chewing FBI agent in charge, the shop owners go on stakeouts, plan stings, and pursue justice in a high-speed car chase.  If they don’t find the killer soon, it might be more than their love lives in trouble.
A Cuppa Trouble is releasing on July 1, 2019!  I’ve read the book and will be sharing a review very soon!  (Spoiler Alert – it’s so funny!)  

Preorders are now live on Amazon!!

The Inn at Hidden Run by Olivia Newport


This story was so enjoyable!!

The Inn at Hidden Run is the first book in the Tree of Life series by Olivia Newport.  In it, we are introduced to the father-daughter duo of Nolan Duffy and Jillian Parisi-Duffy.  They’re a lawyer and a genealogist, respectively, and together have an interesting way of diving into the heart of the situation!

This is a time-slip novel, blending the past with the present in a wonderful way.  The contemporary storyline has a lovely balance of humor, quirky small-town friendships and faith.  The historical chapters share how that generation struggled through a devastating epidemic, using their faith to guide them.  Eliza’s trials of 1878 were not the same that Meri faced in the present, but the way they were woven together was really well done!

The covers for the upcoming books have already been released!  I love how well they work together!  Nolan and Jillian will return for these stories, helping out new friends and fellow townsfolk – I’m looking forward to reading them!

I’m really glad I read this!  I happily recommend this book!  The Inn at Hidden Run is available now!  Visit www.christianbook.com for details!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to leave a review.
