Blog Tour for The Alaskan Catch with review

On Tour with Prism Book Tours


The Alaskan Catch I always love to read books about Alaska and a place I would love to visit but this is a very good book set in Alaska and I cannot wait until the next one. Dana finds her brother, Chris, in Alaska after he left home years ago but she finds a whole lot more. The book has some suspense and mystery to it and also adventure. Once you start the book it is hard to put down. Sam is her brother's roommate and he has quite a story. I really loved all the characters but I think Sam and Dana were my favorite. I definitely recommend this book. I have found another great author.

Her blue-eye Lieutenant Blog Tour

My Review

This is the 3rd in the series and the first book I read by Linda Ellen and I absolutely loved the book. I am going have to read the first two in the series since I enjoyed this one so much. They don't have to be read in order. I got so involved with the characters. Even though I really loved Gary and Julie, the character that stood out to me more was Gary's father. Gary was his only son and he had lost his wife. Gary and his father has a lot to work out. I received an advanced copy of the book, definitely recommend it.

Blurb for “Her Blue-Eyed Lieutenant
Until now, Gary Tucker’s life had been one of privilege and wealth.  His long-lost brothers figured he’d had everything handed to him on a silver platter.  But he’d had struggles of a different kind—like the struggle to break free of Gareth B. Tucker, Sr.’s iron-fisted control—to be his own man. No one really understood what it was like to be Gareth Tucker, one that is, except Julie.  Julie Banks was beautiful, wholesome, smart and funny—and his brother’s little sister.  Gene thought of her as just a kid—but Gary saw her as the woman of his dreams.  Therein lay the problem.  Were they destined to remain best friends, never taking their relationship farther than that?

Overshadowing all of this, however, was the War.  More than anything, Gary wanted to join the conflict and fly bombers over Germany and Japan.  Would he get the opportunity?

Could he find a way to become the man he knew he was called to be—and would the woman he loved be by his side when it was all said and done?

If you love stories about WWII and the “Greatest Generation” that read like you’re watching a classic movie, with handsome soldiers and beautiful girls-next-door, then Her Blue-Eyed Lieutenant is for you!

This is the third book in the Soldiers of Swing series, and like the others, it contains no profanity or illicit sex.

My heart belongs on Mackinac Island I really enjoyed Maude, loved her strong character. Her family owns a hotel and she wants to run it but her father objects. She does her best to prove that she is a hard worker. She goes to work at the other hotel where she meets Ben that is a undercover journalist. Also enjoyed Maude brother Jack. I could tell the author put a lot of work in the book. A lot of characters and they were all brought to life. Enjoyed the book from start to end. I definitely recommend this book.

His Guilt

Mu Review

Mark comes back to town after being gone for a while. Years ago accused of something he did not do. He is working with Waneta at the plant shop. Will they be able to work together? Mark is really trying to start new there and then his brother shows up and attacks start happening again. This really a suspenseful book. I did not figure who it was until the end. My favorite characters was Waneta's parents, they were so encouraging. This is the 2nd in the series and I did read the first book but this is not a continuation of the first book so the series can be read in any order, they are stand alone. They are just all set in the same town. I received an advanced copy of the book from the publisher. Definitely recommend this book.  

Book info
About the book: 

A suspenseful tale of an Amish man who will risk all to protect the woman he loves.

Mark Fisher has returned home to Hart County, determined to put the past behind him. Two years ago, after being wrongly accused of assault, he left the Amish community, though never forgot his home. When the one person who had helped him through his rough times asks for help, Mark returns. But it is pretty Waneta Cain who makes him want to stay...
Neeta is one of the few people in Hart County who doesn't believe Mark is guilty of hurting anyone. However, his worldliness and tough exterior do make her uneasy. As she begins to see the real man behind all the gossip and prejudice, she wonders if he is the man for her.

Just when Mark starts to believe a new life is possible, a close friend of Neeta's is attacked. Once again, everyone in the community seems to believe he is guilty. But what hurts most is Neeta's sudden wariness around him. When another woman is hurt, a woman who is close to both Neeta and himself, Mark fears he knows the real culprit. And time is running out. Will Mark be able to find him before Neeta becomes his next victim?

Her Secret Hannah and her family moves after a guy started stalking her and she meets Issac there. I just loved Issac, he was very special guy. I kept wandering who had the secret and it was kind of a surprise. A very good suspense book. A lot of other characters in the book including her parents and siblings. A am hoping to hear more of them in the next book, which I look forward reading.

A Letter from Lancaster County blog and giveaway

My Review

Two sisters received an letter from their aunt to come for a visit to see where their mother grew up. It is Amish country but their aunt Silvia is not Amish. Angela is married but not happy with her marriage, Rose is single. Their mother recently passed. Angela and Rose definitely has a lot to work out as sisters. They meet Glen, one of the neighbors. I really liked his character, so patient and kind. While staying there they discover a lot from the past. Kept me guessing on how the book was going to turn out. The author did a good job of bringing the characters to life. This was my first book by Kate Lloyd, definitely plan to read more.

Home to Stay

On Tour with Prism Book Tours.

Home to Stay 
by Kate James
Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 312 pages
July 1st 2017 by Harlequin Heartwarming

She's bringing his son home

A missing little boy triggers San Diego K-9 officer Shannon Clemens and her canine search-and-rescue partner into instant action. For the rookie cop haunted by a childhood tragedy, bringing Sawyer Evans's son safely home is more than a job. It's a mission she can't fail… But forging a friendship with the father is a tactical error that could compromise her first solo assignment. Yet the deepening bond between them is almost impossible to resist…

My Review 

Wow, I really got into this book. Love the mystery and suspense of it, love the characters and especially the dogs. Shannon is a police officer that does a rescue with her dog Darwin. Sawyer has a young son that is taken from him but they have no idea who kidnapped him. His wife had been missing and given up for dead, does it have anything to do with her? You will just have to read and see, it is quite a story. I just love how Kate James knows how to tell a great story, brings the characters to life and really love books with dogs and children in them. This is great series that each book is a stand alone, I have read one other one that is in the series and loved it too. Definitely have the other two on list to read.
