You know those lazy days of Summer when you want to just sit back and read?? Well, I have 2 grand babies and I love when they are here and we snuggle up on the porch swing and read, read, read!!

I am so happy to have been asked to review this cute book! Both of my grandkids LOVED it! It kept their attention and they asked to read it over and over again!! The pics are adorable and the storyline is so funny!!! Tillie & Clementine's daddy has quite the adventure while he is caring for the girls since Mom is away for the night!

Fatal Trauma - REVIEW


The gunman had nothing to lose, and therefore, the lives of everyone in the emergency room were at risk. Dr. Mark Baker and nurse Kelly Atkinson were on duty during the standoff, but despite their efforts, at the end of the evening, three men were dead—one police officer and two members of the feared Zeta drug cartel. But the killing is not over, because when the drug cartel loses its members, revenge is not far behind. Mark’s life continues to be in danger, but to make matters worse he finds he is under suspicion as a killer! He turns to his high school sweetheart, attorney Gwen Woodruff, for help, while Kelly helplessly looks on, hiding her feelings for the good doctor. The characters in Fatal Trauma face life and death situations that cause them to question their faith, their priorities, and the meaning of their lives, while learning that God can use everyone— even people who’ve failed—because doesn’t that include all of us?


OH EM GEEEEE!!! This is such an awesome book!! Literally from the very first pages you cannot put the book down!!! I have ALWAYS loved every single one of Dr. Mabry's books, but this one ... it just might be my favorite!!! The suspense is crazy good! I mean, can you even imagine being an ER doctor and 2 men arrive that you find out later are part of the most feared drug cartel??? What's worse is that the men don't make it and now the cartel wants revenge!!! Talk about having to watch your back at all times!! Dr. Mark was just having an ordinary day in the ER, and then bam, his life changes in an instant!  

When it comes to Mark and Kelly, well, you'll just have to read it to find out that answer!! For me, I wanted to seriously shake Kelly, and tell her to SPEAK UP GIRLFRIEND!!! Don't you just love reading those books that have you yelling at the characters!!! LOL My kids just look at me like I'm crazy when I do that, but hey, they know I am really into the story :)

I HIGHLY recommend Fatal Trauma! It's definitely 5 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥'s

As Waters Gone By


Emmalyn Ross has only a few months left to figure out if she and her husband, Max, can ever be a couple again. In prison for actions that ensured his wife could never be a mother, Max is now scheduled for release, and Emmalyn wonders how she can let him back into her life after all he’s put her through. During his five-year incarceration, Emmalyn moved to the beautiful, but remote Madeline Island in Lake Superior. With the help of a circle of misfit town residents, including the exuberant owner of the Wild Iris Inn and Café, Emmalyn begins to restore her heart while refurbishing her very own island cottage. She learns what it means to love unconditionally and finds that her dream of a house and a home filled with God’s love might become a reality, but only if she and Max can find a way to rebuild their marriage…and win the fight of their lives in the process. As Waters Gone By, the highly anticipated fourth novel by award-winning author and speaker, Cynthia Ruchti, is sure to be the next book club favorite.


Don't you just love when a book surprises you?? I sure do, and, As Waters Gone By definitely surprised me. The story was so much more than I had originally thought! 

I fell in love with the storyline as well as the quirky characters! I loved Emmalyn and her determined self!! Despite the fact that her husband is in jail and told her he wants a divorce, she fights hard to find herself and move forward in her life!

Bougie is possibly my favorite! She listens, loves, and through her serving at the Wild Iris Inn, she helps so many to begin the healing process!!

There are others that you will meet in this wonderful story and I believe you will love them like I do. As Waters Gone By is such an inspirational book and filled with such hope! The setting is PERFECT for a summer read too! This is hands down a MUST READ!!

This week, the

Christian Fiction Blog Alliance

is introducing


David C. Cook (June 1, 2015)


Varina Denman


An avid reader and blogger, Varina Denman enjoys writing fiction about Christian women and the unique struggles they face. She seems to have a knack for describing small town life, and is currently working on the three-book Mended Heart Series. The first book in the series, Jaded, won the 2013 ACFW Genesis contest for romance.

Varina attended three Texas universities over a span of five years, majoring in four subjects and earning zero degrees. However, she can now boast sixteen years as a home educator, volunteering in the local cooperative where she has taught numerous subjects including creative writing and literature.

Even though Varina has spoken at ladies’ retreats and taught women’s Bible classes, she finds the greatest fulfillment facilitating prayer groups. She lives in Burleson, Texas, where she helps with Family Ministry in her home congregation. Varina is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and North Texas Christian Writers.


In a small Texas town ruled by gossip, Fawn Blaylock believes others are justified in condemning her untimely pregnancy. Stifled by guilt, she yearns for grace while the local football coach treats her with gentle respect.

Justified perfectly captures the rhythm and romance of life in a small town, telling the unforgettable story of a woman searching for renewal, a man looking beyond what others see, and a community torn between judgment and love. It is the unforgettable story of broken dreams, second chances, and relentless hope.
