CIRCLE OF DECEPTION by M. SKYE

Circle of Deception had twists in the storyline throughout the book making the book hard to put down once you start. From the beginning when family and friends trick friends who used to be a couple into seeing each other to the surprising ending, there is always something happening. Who is being deceitful? The parents, adult children, or all of the above. And why?

Circle of Deception well deserves 5/5 stars from me.

Runaway grabs your attention from the beginning with a prearranged marriage having a step father sell to highest bidder her hand  to cover debt. Through the book with the different events that happen. (NO SPOILERS) I can say the end is good and only half a surprise. RUNAWAY is worth another read especially during a relaxing day during the summer. Overall I believe this book is a 5/5 stars.

COMMENTS

Now that I gave the official review I will say that this book was something that struck at cord. How could a step father sell his daughter, no matter what type, to the highest bidder? That is just wrong! That needs to be enough of my comments except to say I loved reading this book and what was going to happen next.

FOR LOVE OR COUNTRY (BOOK 2) THE MACGREGOR LEGACY by JENNIFER HUDSON TAYLOR

For Love or Country is a great book to read. There is no part of the book that is over powering such as romance, war, or even spy games. They fit together making the characters and the story come to life in your mind as you are reading. This book is hard to put down once you start and one that can be read more than once. 
It is hard to not write more however I try and not give spoilers. I will say this book is well worth the 5/5 stars.


TASTE OF HONEY by GAMAL HENNESSY

BOOK CONTAINS ADULT MATERIAL



A Taste of Honey when I first got to read it was in four short book stage. Which at that point I loved and now I love even more as there is no break in the book. Having this spy/love/even politically motivated book able to work through the problem is making it a book that does not have a moment that something is not happening. If I did not say this on my other reviews for the books, I love the writing style of Gamal Hennessy.


BOOK CONTAINS ADULT MATERIAL

ZINOVOY'S JOURNEY by GINNY JAQUES

Zinovoy's journey is when the world as we know it ends. This was a good book. There was some confusing parts however if you would push thorough them they would become clear. During the book some Christian beliefs are explained in an easy and understanding way.

Overall impression of the book is that it was good, maybe a bit long, and also had good solid facts based on Biblical and Christian fact.

WHISPERS FROM FORBIDDEN EARTH by MARK VENTURINI

Whispers from Forbidden Earth was a good book. The book was wonderful it was hard to put down as there was something always getting ready to happen if not happening. The elves and fairies and dragons and more characters made this book that any age could read and enjoy. There was only thing that holds back this book from being a five star and that is needing stronger description of some characters and places.

INTO THE TRENCHES by ANDREA BARRINGER

Into The Trenches could come out of today's headlines still. It is an eye opener even with the book being based on fictitious characters, the details and the different events are real. There is definitely no sugarcoating how war affects soldiers in this book or how God is needed to help make it through what they go through.
This book is amazing and gives a view at soldiers most books try to hide.

Right before I started reading this book I was told a member of my family was joining the National Guard. I am proud and excited to have her serve but also nervous and scared especially after reading this book as it brings to life the reality of war. People who do not experience first hand will not understand what the soldiers go through to keep us safe and to my family member and the rest I thank you and want you to know that I pray angels keeps their protective wings around you until you home safe with the ones you love again.

HENRY GOES TO THE BIG CITY by C.J. and SHELLEY HITZ

Henry Goes To the Big City is a cute story with a wonderful storyline. The story teaches how unconditional love is important for adults will mention where in the Bible to find verses. This does not interrupt the reading of the story. However, reading to a toddler as the intend audience is a stretch.
The story would be wonderful for an older child who has a longer attention span.
Overall it is good and cute story.

THIS IS A CHILDREN'S BOOK



however it is cute and has a good storyline. I can only wish that my daughter was older that she could have enjoyed it as much as I did. She also wanted to see more pictures than what was on there, she loves to see pictures.

AMISH FAITH RENEWED BOXED SET by BECCA FISHER

Faith Renewed Boxed Set are short stories that complement each other with different story lines. Each story gave a way for faith in God to be renewed and in doing so helped make the story give something to think about on growing personal faith.
It was given to me in exchange for an honest review and I am grateful I got to read it. It is a wonderful collection of stories.

FLAME OF BATTLE

In the flame of battle, even the innocent get burned… Dyrfinna is a born commander. She bests her peers in dragon riding, sword fighting, ...
