Missing

Missing by Lynette Eason is a romantic suspense story of love and forgiveness. When Lacy Gibson’s fifteen-year-old daughter goes missing, she turns to her high school sweetheart, Deputy U.S. Marshal, Mason Stone for help.

Mason is shocked when Lacy shows up on his doorstep and announces he has a daughter and she’s missing. He hasn’t seen Lacy for sixteen years when she broke his heart, but now that she’s back he must learn to forgive that she kept their daughter from him.

I really enjoyed this story. Once again I figured out the villain, and I’m beginning to think I read too much. Or maybe it’s the way my mind works. Regardless, Missing is worth reading. To find out more about Eason’s books check out http://www.lynetteeason.com/books.html

Love Finds You In Camelot Tennessee

Love Finds You in Camelot Tennessee, by Janice Hanna is more than a quirky romance about two people who love their town and want to save it. It’s a story about a small community that joins together for a greater good and in the process accomplishes what everyone thought was impossible.

Camelot is filled with street names like Excalibur Drive and Lancelot Lane that help  inspire Amy Hart’s latest idea which she runs past her best friend Steve, the Mayor of Camelot, for approval.

Steve would do about anything to save the town including taking on the biggest job of his life–Putting on the musical Camelot to draw tourists to the small town.

Love Finds You in Camelot Tennessee is a laugh out loud read that is sure to entertain.

A Narrow Path

A Narrow Path by Gail Sattler hooked me from page one. This contemporary Mennonite romance left me wanting more.

Miranda Klassen accepted a year long commission to write and direct a musical for the Mennonite church in a small Minnesota town. She is excited about the opportunity, but soon realizes she doesn’t fit in with the old Mennonite ways. She works hard to be accepted especially by her biggest critic, the music director, Ted Wiebe.

Ted Wiebe is shocked that the woman they hired from Seattle to take over the church musical is not like his people. She’s modern, wears jeans and is more comfortable with a cell phone than a pen and paper.

I’ve been a fan of Sattler’s for years and haven’t read a book yet by her that I didn’t like. I was especially impressed with how I could “see” the story clearly in my mind. A Narrow Path was a refreshing take on all the Amish and in this case Mennonite books out there.

A Hope Undaunted

A Hope Undaunted, a historical romance  by Julie Lessman had me riveted. Usually it takes a romantic suspense to do that, but this book delivered with plenty of natural tension.

Katie O’Connor has her life all planned out. She will marry a wealthy man and become an attorney representing women’s rights. But when her boyfriend delivers her home late one time too many her dad grounds her for the summer and forces her to volunteer at  Boston Children’s Aid Society. A move that changes the course of her life.

Luke McGee, along with his best friend run Boston Children’s Aid Society. He is determined to make life miserable for Katie because of their past, but his boss intervenes and what could have been the longest summer in history turns out to be not so bad.

It’s a little hard to describe this book because it gets in the head of several characters and they are all woven perfectly together. I’ve never read a book like this, especially one meant for the Christian market. It addressed the challenges of life honestly, and didn’t have the normal veil we see in Christian books. I LOVED A Hope Undaunted, but it’s probably not for readers who prefer conservative Christian books.
