Review of Hart's Truth

My beautiful writing budd, Kelly Long! See my reivew of her book below.

Fresh out of medical school, Hart Pagett, arrives in the small railroad town of Renew, Pa., thinking that God is cruel and life is unfair. He will become the apprentice to the town’s Doctor McGuire, who is slowly going blind. He is being cared for by his assistant who happens to be his beautiful red-haired daughter, Abby. He is put-off by Dr. McGuire’s gruffness and seeming indifference. While tending to the ailing and sick of this poor town of hardworking people, Hart is drawn to, not only the needs of the townsfolk, but the old doctor and his daughter as well. Through a series of events and a near tragedy, Hart discovers his deep need for God and his love for Abby.

Step back in time to a place where life was simpler and sweeter. Let the rugged railroad town of Renew draw you into this wonderful story of life-altering events that gently build Hart’s love for life, but most of all his deep need for God through transforming love.

Kelly is currently working on the second book in the Renew the Heart Series. She is a part of my writing group and is the dearest of friends.

Three Brunettes

I'm finally getting around to posting a picture of me with my two sweet writer friends, Colleen Coble and Diane Hunt. I'm the one in the middle and incidentally, not published yet, but that did not keep them from accepting me as their equal. You can read about them in one of my earlier posts, and be directed to their fabulous webites to find out the titles of their latest books. Aren't I lucky?

Leather and Lace Review

DiAnn Mills lives up to her slogan, “Expect an Adventure” with her first in the Texas Legacy Series, Leather and Lace. From the very first page when outlaw Casey O’Hare decides to stop running from the law, until the surprise in the last chapter, her story will keep you turning pages way into the night. Casey exemplifies the term leather and lace in her struggle to become a respected member of society, but her rough and rowdy past haunts her. With a bounty on her head from riding with the notorious Jenkins gang, she meets up with Morgan Andrews, who has his own score to settle with Jenkins, intending to use her as his pawn. Romance is soon intertwined in this fast paced adventure with twists and turns that makes this a delightful read.

Strengthened by recommitment of faith and forgiveness, along with the support of great secondary characters, Casey and Morgan strive to rectify the wrongs and put the past behind them. The characters are believable and faith is told in true life fashion. It’s great tale of the Old West, trust and God’s grace. This story will take you on the ride of your life.
