Texas Roads Review

City gal Dani Davis just wants to find a place to call home. Miller's Creek, Texas, with its country charm and quirky citizens seems like the perfect place to start over. Perfect, that is, except for the cowboy who gives her a ride into town...

Dani secretly finances renovations to downtown Miller's Creek, but malicious rumors force her to choose between keeping her involvement a secret and the home for which she's always longed. Then the discovery of an age-old secret propel her down a road she never expected to travel.

Steve Miller is determined to save his dying hometown. When vandalism jeopardizes the Miller's Creek restoration project, he can't help but suspect Dani, whose strange behavior has become fodder for local gossips. Will Steve and Dani be able to call a truce for a higher cause, and in the process help Dani understand the true meaning of home?

About the author:
Cathy Bryant's debut novel, Texas Roads, was a 2009 finalist in the American Christian Fiction Writers' Genesis competition. A Texas gal by birth, Cathy lives with her husband in a century-old Texas farmhouse, complete with picket fence, flowers, butterflies, and late summer mosquitoes the size of your fist. Learn more about Cathy at or at

My Review:

I was contacted by Cathy and she asked if I would review her book. I have to say, "I am so blessed to be able to have read this book!" Literally, from the first chapter until the very end of the book I was hooked! Texas Roads is a love story, a mystery, and you will find yourself wanting to share the story with all of those around you!

Dani Davis is on the search for HOME. Her whole life she has never felt like she fits in anywhere. She decides to take a trip to see her "Aunt" who lives in small town Miller's Creek. Circumstances lead Dani down a path of Truth, Love and a Family which she has longed for all of her life. Secrets that have kept families apart far too long are revealed and well, you will just have to read "Texas Roads" to find out how it all turns out :)

This book will leave you longing for a community of people who pull together to work towards a common goal and love their town and one another! Dani and Steve work together along with all the townspeople of Millers Creek to rebuild the town that they love. I loved taking this journey with Dani and meeting all the people that she grows to love despite their doubts of her and the growing questions they have as she spends more and more time in Millers Creek. While Dani is helping to rebuild the small town of Millers Creek, one day at a time, she is rebuilding her life and to learning to hope and trust in Someone that will never let her down.

I truly appreciate the intregrity in which Cathy writes! I recommend this book to all who love to read romance and to those young adults as well!

The Last Christian Review

In the future, it’s possible to live forever—but at what cost?

A.D. 2088.

Missionary daughter Abigail Caldwell emerges from the jungle for the first time in her thirty-four years, the sole survivor of a mysterious disease that killed her village. Abby goes to America, only to discover a nation where Christianity has completely died out. A curious message from her grandfather assigns her a surprising mission: re-introduce the Christian faith in America, no matter how insurmountable the odds.

But a larger threat looms. The world's leading artificial intelligence industrialist has perfected a technique for downloading the human brain into a silicon form. Brain transplants have begun, and with them comes the potential of eliminating physical death altogether—but at what expense?

As Abby navigates a society grown more addicted to stimulating the body than nurturing the soul, she and Creighton Daniels, a historian troubled by his father's unexpected death, become unwitting targets of powerful men who will stop at nothing to further their nefarious goals. Hanging in the balance—the spiritual future of all humanity.

In this fast-paced thriller, startling near-future science collides with thought-provoking religious themes to create a spell-binding "what-if?" novel.

To read the first chapter go here

My Review: This book is a Sci-Fi novel that honestly isn't what I typically read but I have to say I am sooo glad I stuck with this book and was amazed at how it is so close to the spiritual nature of Our Nation. This book will keep you turning pages well into the night and awaken your evangelistic mindset!

It's the year 2088, and Abigail Caldwell receives a message from her grandparents years after it was recorded~ their plea: Reawaken Christianity! She leaves the only home (the jungle) and people (the Inisi villagers of Papua New Guinea) she has ever known and goes to American to fulfill her grandparents wish. She seeks the Lord and relies on HIM to protect, guide and lead her on this journey. This America is filled with people who believe they can live forever...

I recommend this book to those who like thrillers, suspense novels and of course Sci-Fi. This book will surprise you with how this comes so close and you really will ask yourself "What if this could really happen?"

I received this book complimentary from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group in return for this honest reveiw. To purchase a copy of this book go here

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

Zondervan (May 25, 2010)


Terri Blackstock


Terri Blackstock’s books have sold six million copies worldwide. Her suspense novels often debut at number one on the Christian fiction best-seller lists, and True Light, published last year, was number one of all Christian books—fiction and non-fiction. Blackstock has had twenty-five years of success as a novelist.

In 1994 Blackstock was writing for publishers such as HarperCollins, Harlequin and Silhouette, when a spiritual awakening drew her into the Christian market. Since that time, she’s written over thirty Christian titles, in addition to the thirty-two she had in the secular market. Her most recent books are the four in her acclaimed Restoration Series, which includes Last Light, Night Light, True Light and Dawn’s Light. She is also known for her popular Newpointe 911 and Cape Refuge Series.

In addition to her suspense novels, she has written a number of novels in the women’s fiction genre, including Covenant Child, which was chosen as one of the first Women of Faith novels, and her Seasons Series written with Beverly LaHaye, wife of Tim LaHaye.

Blackstock has won the Retailer’s Choice Award and has appeared on national television programs such as The 700 Club, Home Life, and At Home Live with Chuck and Jenny. She has been a guest on numerous radio programs across the country and the subject of countless articles. The story of her personal journey appears in books such as Touched By the Savior by Mike Yorkey, True Stories of Answered Prayer by Mike Nappa, Faces of Faith by John Hanna, and I Saw Him In Your Eyes by Ace Collins.


The murder of Krista Carmichael's fourteen-year-old sister by an online predator has shaken her faith and made her question God's justice and protection. Desperate to find the killer, she creates an online persona to bait the predator. But when the stalker turns his sights on her, will Krista be able to control the outcome?

Ryan Adkins started the social network GrapeVyne in his college dorm and has grown it into a billion-dollar corporation. But he never expected it to become a stalking ground for online Predators. One of them lives in his town and has killed two girls and attacked a third. When Ryan meets Krista, the murders become more than a news story to him, and everything is on the line.

Joining forces, he and Krista set out to stop the killer. But when hunters pursue a hunter, the tables can easily turn. Only God can protect them now.

Enter the Terri Blackstock iPad CONTEST:

If you would like to read the first chapter of Predator, go HERE.

I JUST received this book so I have not read it yet but look forward to it! I will come back and let you know what I think :)

Have a blessed weekend!

The Heart Mender review and GIVEAWAY!

A unique blend of historical fact and engaging fiction showing the power of forgiveness.

In 1942, German subs are dispatched to the Gulf of Mexico to sink U.S. vessels carrying goods and fuel. While taking a late-night walk, Helen Mason—widowed by war—discovers the near-lifeless body of a German sailor. Enraged at the site of Josef Landermann's uniform, Helen is prepared to leave him to die when an unusual phrase, faintly uttered, changes her mind.

In The Heart Mender, a small town must prepare itself for the worst the world has to offer, and Josef and Helen must reconcile their pasts to create a future.

Back of the Book:

In the classic storytelling of The Noticer and The Travelers Gift, New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews now delivers an adventure set sharply against the warm waters and white sand of the Gulf of Mexico in WWII America.

Saddened and unable to abandon her resentment toward the nazi war machine that took her husband's life, the young and attractive Helen Mason is living a bitter, lonely existence. Betrayed and left for dead, German U-boat officer Lt. Josef Landermann washes ashore in a sleepy town along the northern gulf coast, looking to Helen for survival.

The Heart Mender is a story of life, loss, and reconciliation, reminding us of the power of forgiveness and the universal experience of letting go.

My review:

I will be honest...At first, I did not know how I would like this book as it appears to be about WWII. I immediately told my son who is a WWII fan that he would love to read this book after I finished :) As the pages turned I began to get so involved in this story! Truly it is a story of hope and forgiveness. I found myself having so much compassion for the young Helen and her new found guest Josef as they had both lost so much and yet fought hard to lead a life placing one foot in front of the other no matter their circumstance. I love how Andy tells their tale and yet it is his story as well. Andy finds some treasures and sets forth to find out where in the world they came from.

The Heart Mender is a wonderful book that will encourage you and inspire you. I recommend it to those who love a good "love story" as well as those who enjoy history and World War II stories. I am so thankful to be able to give someone a copy!

Bringing up Girls

Help your daughters meet the challenges that come their way and become the healthy, happy, and successful women you want them to be. Based on research done by Dr. James Dobson and written in his down-to-earth and good-humored style, Bringing Up Girls will do for parents of girls what Bringing Up Boys did for parents of boys. Hardcover. A Focus on the Family Recommendation.

Back of the book:

Peer pressure. Eating disorders. Decisions about love, romance, and sex. Academic demands. Life goals and how to achieve them. These are just some of the challenges that girls face today ~ and the age at which they encounter them is getting younger and younger. As a parent, how are you guiding your daughter on her journey to womanhood? Are you equipping her to make wise choices? Whether she's still playing with dolls or in the midst of the often-turbulent teen years, is she truly secure in her identity as your valued and loved daughter?

My Review:

As I expected this book is a phenomenal resource in raising daughters. The advice ranges from how we are made to cultural influences, the importance of the fathers role, and of course purity and puberty. I really appreciate the chapter on bullying as it is so important these days to look for those situations. All in all this book has a common denominator in all areas for me.
COMMUNICATION AND BEING ACTIVE IN YOUR CHILDS LIFE! Talking to them about what is going their bodies, in their friendships, at school, their emotions ~ everything! Talk. Talk. Talk. No matter what type your family is we can always talk to our children! This book is a must for anyone participating in raising a daughter. Grandparents can benefit. Aunts, Day Care providers, they too can benefit. I recommend this book to every parent out there!

I received this book complimentary from Tyndale Publishers in return for this honest review. No compensation of any kind was given.

What's on your wishlist?

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. It's also an event that you can join in with too - Mr Linky is always at the ready for you to link your own 'On My Wishlist' post. If you want to know more click here

Midnight Sun by Lisa Tawn Bergen is the final book in the Northern Lights series. I believe this whole series has been repackaged and this book has not yet been released in it's new cover so this is the old cover and still available through Amazon. The first books were "The Captains Bride" and then came "Deep Harbor"

KAATJE JANSSEN--Desperate to know if her missing husband still lives, Kaatje hires the rugged, yet tenderhearted James Walker to guide her through the perils of the Alaskan wilderness. What she finally discovers, however, is far from what she expected--and could well place her in the greatest danger of her life.

ELSA RAMSTAD--As captain of the Majestic and mother of Kristian and Eve, Elsa has sought to ease the ache of her lonely heart. Forever changed by loss, she accepts her fate of solitude. But when an old friend rekindles the spark of romance within her, will she allow the flames of love to burn again?

TORA ANDERS--Her foolish youth behind her, Tora looks forward to her wedding and a fresh start in life as the wife of her beloved, Trent Storm. But first she must confront, face-to-face, the terrible demons of her past--and her struggle to forgive the man who radically altered her future.

KARL MARTENSEN--Though he is widely admired, Captain Karl Martensen feels no depth of emotion for any of the women with whom his life becomes uncomfortably entangled. He has only tender memories of the love he once lost--a love that, by the grace of God, he just may find again--

From the fierce Alaskan wilderness to the gaiety of San Francisco society; the familiar peaks of Bergen, Norway, to the dark, churning waters of Cape Horn; witness the glorious conclusion of the Northern Lights family saga as four long-time friends journey out of the shadow of their darkest days into the bright future awaiting them in the land of the Midnight Sun.

Life in Defiance by Mary Demuth

This book is also book #3 in a series. The final book of the Daisy Chain novels.

Ouisie Pepper is haunted by a terrible secret: she knows who killed Daisy Chance. And she refuses to tell. As her children inch closer to identifying the murderer, Ouisie has to make a decision. Will she tell the truth to protect Jed and Sissy? Or will the anger she fears silence them all? 352 pages, softcover from Zondervan.

What are your reading habits?

My friend Heather @ Proud Book Nerd introduced me to this meme. I told her I am NOT stalking her but she shares these awesome meme's and I have to participate! :) Thanks Heather!

Do you snack while you read?
I don't normally snack but very often I will sit and read while I eat my lunch.

What is your favourite drink while reading?
Well, if it is during lunch I have an ICE COLD COKE otherwise it's Water w/lemon for me!

Do you tend to mark your books as you read, or does the idea of writing in books horrify you?
Ok ~ if it a self help book I will write all over it but if it is a fiction book I never write in them unless it is my Name so when I lend the book out they know who to return it to.

How do you keep your place while reading a book? Bookmark? Dog-ears? Laying the book flat open?
Definitely dog ears because I lose bookmarks like crazy! I just don't know what happens to those things !!! Drives me crazy! :)

Fiction, non-fiction, or both?
Fiction. I very rarely read anything non-fiction. I want to relax and enjoy not have to think to deeply LOL

Are you a person who tends to read to the end of a chapter, or can you stop anywhere?
I like to finish a chapter but honestly I can stop anywhere on the page and it doesn't bother me.

Are you the type of person to throw a book across the room or on the floor if the author irritates you?
Throw a book??? Never. I may be caught screaming out loud "why oh why" OR "what the heck did they do that for?" but!

If you come across an unfamiliar word, do you stop and look it up right away?
No. I can usually figure it out depending on what's happening in the book. But if I need to I will look it up!

What are you currently reading?
Just about to finish Heart Mender by Andy Andrews

What is the last book you bought?
Francine Rivers newest book titled "Her Mother's Hope"

I can read 5 books at a time and it drives my family CRAZY :~P

Do you have a favourite time/place to read?
Nope, whenever I can but I LOVE going to a Barnes & Noble or a Coffee shop and just sitting with a cup of coffee and read and watch people.

Do you prefer series books or stand alones?
Before I began reviewing books I rarely read anyone other than Karen Kingsbury and I LOVE her series. I have to say I am soo Thankful to review because I have been so blessed to find some AMAZING authors!

Is there a specific book or author you find yourself recommending over and over?
Yes. I usually recommend anything Karen Kingsbury or Francine Rivers but I will always recommend Ron hall and Denver Hall's "Same Kind of Different As Me" as well.

How do you organize your books? (by genre, title, author's last name, etc.)
Organize? What is that? HA. My dad shared my love of reading but HE listened to books on Tape. He has an amazing library and had them all according to genre, listed alphabetically and on his computer and backed up as well. This was something My husband was able to inherit and treasures immensely!

A review from my Son Jantzen

My friend Heather from Proud Book Nerd is sharing a meme today about supporting Childrens literature. What a great meme to be a part of! I love to see Children reading and honestly reading is something my Son and I share. It is one of our favorite things to do together. Besides spending a day at Barnes & Noble we love to sit outside or lay in bed and just read!!!!

So here he is giving you his first review:

Hey everyone! Call me Jantz. This book is The Journal of Scott Pendleton Collins authored by Walter Dean Myers. I picked this book because I am a WWII fanatic. First all let me say, AMAZING BOOK. I could not put it down. I loved the action of this book. He shares the personal feelings of Scott and he describes the bloodthirstiness of war. The author held nothing back- it was brutal and truthful! Its about a young man in England in 1944 and his time in the army, day by day. His battles mentally and physically are very harsh, unmerciful, and rough. Fighting day after day takes a toll. As with any war story, getting attached to any of the characters is not wise. Very good read. VERY HIGHLY recommended. I do think you should at least read a little bit up on WWII. Some terms are used that you might not understand. Overall great book 6/5 stars!

Thank you Jantzen for sharing your opinion of this book! You did great!

You can purchase this book here at Amazon

Crossing Oceans ~ A Must Read

My Review:

In reading about this book I honestly did NOT know the content would be so close to what I had just walked through in this past year, if I had, I am not sure I would have requested this book. That being said ~ again I see Gods hand even in my requesting and reading this book.

This debut Novel, Crossing Oceans by Gina Holmes is one of the BEST books I have read in a Long time and would highly recommend it to just about EVERYONE! You will laugh and cry, you will ponder your relationships and you learn about true deep UNCONDITIONAL Love. A Mothers' Love that is so selfless and strong and yet at times the daughter within her brings about forgiveness as well.

This story of Jenny Lucas and her precious daughter is one that will encourage you to live life to the fullest, to seek forgiveness and to always keep what is important as the priority but you will also see a woman grow in her Faith and live "on Purpose" while each day she plants seeds in her daughters life that will grow and flourish in the years to come no matter what lies ahead.

We all seek to be loved, to have healthy relationships, but we all also fail at times. Crossing Oceans is a book that will inspire you to Love with all you have, to seek the Lord no matter what life throws at you and in the end it is HIM that we all are truly seeking ~ for it is HIM that has all we will ever need!

This is a book I will read over and over again!

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing

Crossing Oceans
Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. (May 1, 2010)

Gina Holmes


Gina Holmes began her career in 1998, penning articles and short stories. In 2005 she founded the influential literary blog, Novel Journey. She holds degrees in science and nursing and currently resides with her husband and children in southern Virginia. To learn more about her, visit May 2010's issue of CFOM at Interview with Gina Holmes or Novel Journey.


Jenny Lucas swore she’d never go home again. But being told you’re dying has a way of changing things. Years after she left, she and her five-year-old daughter, Isabella, must return to her sleepy North Carolina town to face the ghosts she left behind. They welcome her in the form of her oxygen tank–toting grandmother, her stoic and distant father, and David, Isabella’s dad . . . who doesn’t yet know he has a daughter. As Jenny navigates the rough and unknown waters of her new reality, the unforgettable story that unfolds is a testament to the power of love and its ability to change everything—to heal old hurts, bring new beginnings . . . even overcome the impossible. A stunning debut about love and loss from a talented new voice.

Holding his personal demons at bay, Jonah is committed to being a different kind of lawman than his father.

Indivisible By Kristen Heitzmann. This is the first book that I have read from author Kristen Heitzmann and to be honest I was very excited because the book sounded like it was going to be VERY good! So to say that I was very disappointed would be a huge understatement. I became very frustrated as I read this book and at times had to force myself to continue. It seemed to drag on and too many things were going on all at once along with so many characters that it was hard to figure out. Then I felt too many story lines were left undone. I sincerely have a hard time giving a review like this!

If you would like to read the first chapter go here Please don't take my opinion because I have read reviews of her other books and they sound very good. I will definitely try her again! If you would like to purchase this book please go here

I received this complimentary from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group in return for my humble opinion.
