Guest Post from Dana Mentink

Howdy, readers! I am thrilled to be bringing you this four book Gold Country Cowboys series that takes place in an area near and dear to my heart! My family and I have enjoyed many adventures in this amazing area, from exploring gold mines, to climbing through caverns, and soaking in the incredible history. As a matter of fact, we recently enjoyed a train trip on the historic V and T Railroad which took us past abandoned mines and even some active ones where people are engaged in modern day treasure hunting. California’s Gold Country is a fascinating place filled with secret treasures. I hope you will enjoy some wild adventures with four cowboy brothers who have some secrets of their own. God bless you all!

My Review 

I felt I was in the scenes with the characters because the description of everything in the book made it so real. I felt like I was watching a movie. Someone is out to get Shelby and Barrett is determined to be her guardian even though she is related to the person that caused the death of his wife. Shelby is determined to help her uncle but someone is out to stop her from getting what she needs. The book was hard to put down, great suspense. This is a first in a series and I definitely look forward to reading more about the Thorn family. I was fortunate to receive an advanced copy of the book from the author.

The Gift Blog tour

About the book:

A special Christmas story about love and blessings in the next book in the Amish of Hart County series
The Schwartz family is happy to be spending Christmas on their new farm in Hart County. But when Susanna Schwartz hears gunshots that causes her buggy to overturn, and then her little sister falls through a wooden bridge into the icy creek, it becomes clear from these dangerous "accidents" that someone wants them gone.
Neil Vance has been heartbroken ever since his parents lost their family farm. He knows it's not the Schwartz family's fault, but he can't help but be resentful. Until he meets Susanna. She is kind-hearted and bold, and Neil can't stop thinking about her pretty green eyes.
Neil thinks the accidents are just that, but Susanna's father is convinced the Vance family is responsible. Susanna refuses to believe Neil would do anything to harm her. She's fallen in love with him and knows he is a good man. But her family is ready to pack up and move, and time is running out to uncover the truth before someone gets hurt . . . or worse.

My Review

Susanna and family just moved to a farm that another family was forced to sell. Someone is trying to do harm to their family. Neil is part of the family that had to move from the farm. At first he does not want to be friends with Susanna but he changes his mind and then ends up helping her find who is against them. Enjoyed the mystery of the book and I am loving this series. Can be read as a stand alone book since does not continue. I read this book in one day, meaning it was a book hard to put down. I received an complementary copy of the book from the publisher.

Deadly Proof blog tour

About the book:

Riveting new series offers legal suspense with a romantic twist
In the biggest case of her career, attorney Kate Sullivan is tapped as lead counsel to take on Mason Pharmaceutical because of a corporate cover-up related to its newest drug. After a whistleblower dies, Kate knows the stakes are much higher than her other lawsuits.
Former Army Ranger turned private investigator Landon James is still haunted by mistakes made while serving overseas. Trying to forget the past, he is hired by Kate to look into the whistleblower's allegation and soon suspects that the company may be engaging in a dangerous game for profit. He also soon finds himself falling for this passionate and earnest young lawyer.
Determined not to make the same mistakes, he's intent on keeping Kate safe, but as the case deepens, it appears someone is willing to risk everything-even murder-to keep the case from going to trial.

About the author:
Rachel Dylan writes Christian fiction including legal romantic suspense. Rachel has practiced law for over a decade and enjoys weaving together legal and suspenseful stories. In addition, Rachel writes the Danger in the Deep South including "Lethal Action" and "Devoted Defender," which appeals to fans of edge of your seat romantic suspense. Rachel also writes the Windy Ridge series including "Trial & Tribulations" and "Fatal Accusation." These legal thrillers with elements of spiritual warfare are great for fans who enjoy books by Peretti or Dekker. "Trial & Tribulations" was a Selah finalist in 2016. Rachel lives in Michigan with her husband and five furkids-two dogs and three cats. Rachel loves to connect with readers.

My Review 
Kate is trying to prove wrong against a drug company but will she be able to stay safe while doing it. A great suspense book and Christian fiction makes it even better. A little romance was added but did not overtake the story line. Very interesting from start to finish, kept me wondering how it was going to end. Some of the characters had a lot of self conflicts with doing the right thing. I did not figure out the bad guys so well written in that aspect. I received an advanced copy of the book thru NetGalley and Lit Fuse.

Love's Thankful Heart Blog Tour and giveaway

About the Book


Author: Laura V. Hilton, Rachel J. good, Thomas Nye  
Genre: Amish Thanksgiving Collection  
Release Date: November 1, 2017 

Gingerbread Wishes As Thanksgiving approaches, Becca Troyer finds herself overwhelmed with an abundance of winter squash and pumpkins that she isn’t a bit thankful for. Desperately trying to sell them at a farmer’s market so she won’t have mountains to can, she’s surprised when a mime drops to his knee in front of her and proposes marriage. Yost Miller is helping the volunteer firefighter raise funds at the city park when he notices his long-time crush Becca selling vegetables. Drawn across the grass, he spontaneously proposes marriage. But afterward, Yost isn’t sure how to proceed to show her that his feelings are real. Just as he begins to find solid footing, confidence is yanked away, leaving him floundering. Will he lose Becca to another man? Or will this Thanksgiving be a season of blessings and wishes come true?  

Thanksgiving Strangers Faithe Beiler believes God wants her to feed the poor at her family’s restaurant, but when she mistakes Crist Petersheim for a homeless man and gives him a free breakfast, he’s offended. Yet he can’t help being intrigued by this pretty waitress with a giving heart. Crist blames God for the tragedies in his life, so the last thing he wants is to get involved with an Amish girl, who trusts God in all circumstances. He fears for Faithe’s safety, though, when she invites every homeless person in the neighborhood, including drug dealers and criminals, to a free Thanksgiving dinner. Street savvy, Crist risks his life to protect her from danger. As Crist’s heart softens toward God, Faithe finds herself falling him. Then she discovers his deception, and her world is shattered. Can she ever trust him again?  

Thanksgiving Frolic Monroe has the prettiest girl and the fastest horse— but pride goes before a fall. Monroe’s girlfriend, Rosemary, and her family organize the Thanksgiving Frolic, a service project to help Amish folks who have fallen on hard times. Monroe wants to go along but his dad won’t let him. Furthermore, Monroe’s dad thinks Rosemary’s family should clean up their own messy farm before they try to help others. Will the contrast between Monroe’s and Rosemary’s families end their relationship for good? Rosemary’s grandpa tries to offer words of wisdom, but people don’t take him seriously. The Thanksgiving Frolic heats up to a fever pitch, before a moment of silence changes everything.

My Review

Love this box set, it is a very good thanksgiving stories that has a message that would fit any time of the year.  

Gingerbread Wishes by Laura V. Hilton  Love the story of Becca and Yost, both are shy and have a hard time getting together. When I seen this was part of the family from the Christmas Admirer I was excited for I could read more about them. A really good start to a trio of books. I found myself wanting to pray for the characters. 

 Thanksgiving Strangers by Rachel J. Good Love the story of Crist and Faithe, one of being giving to others and helping others. Love the mystery/ suspense part of the story. I kept trying to figure out what Crist did for a living but never did guess it. Loved how he cared for his brother. 

Thanksgiving Frolic by Thomas Nye  A story of pride and letting others help you, and not to think yourself better then others. A very good short story. Love the horses. 

 I received this box set thru celebrate lit publishing for an honest review.
