Book Review: Gone Too Soon by Melody Carlson

About the Book:

An icy road. A car crash.
A family changed forever.


Hannah Josephson had always been the “perfect” daughter. Kiera couldn’t live up to her before, and she certainly can’t now that her older sister has died in a car accident. But the image she carried resentfully of Hannah is challenged when she finds her dead sister’s diary and begins to read. Apparently Hannah’s final year wasn’t as perfect as everyone thought.

Caught in a pattern of blaming each other, the Josephson family is falling apart. Their father has left, their mother is mixing opiates and alcohol, little sister Maddie has been shipped off to spend the whole summer with their grandmother, and Kiera feels utterly alone with her grief and anger. A summer job helping at a park in a poor section of town provides a friend and a purpose.

But it’s Hannah’s diary that fills her thoughts. For the first time in years, she feels close to the sister she’s lost. But can the knowledge she gleans about her possibly help her patch back together the family that seems determined to implode?

My Review:

I never know what to expect when I pick up a Young Adult novel, but this one hooked me right away.  Much of the novel was first person, in Kiera's voice, which was a good technique.  In real life, I don't think I would have liked Kiera, but being inside her head gave me compassion for her.  I grew to appreciate her gutsiness, and applauded the steps she took to grow up.

For being a YA novel, it was not too angsty, which I appreciate.  It deals with many difficult topics in a way that is real, yet appropriate for teen readers.  As I was reading, my thoughts were that I really wanted to share this book.  Because of a varied cast of characters, there is someone for everyone to relate to, so teens and their parents can enjoy this book.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher, WhiteSpark, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

Book Review with a giveaway: Catching Christmas by Terri Blackstock

About the Book

Book: Catching Christmas
Author: Terri Blackstock
Genre: Christian Fiction, Romance, Christmas
Release Date: October 9, 2018


This Year, Christmas Comes Just in Time.


As a first-year law associate, Sydney Batson knows she will be updating her resume by New Year’s if she loses her current court case. So when her grandmother gets inexplicably ill while she’s in court, Sydney arranges for a cab to get her to the clinic.

The last thing cab driver Finn Parrish wants is to be saddled with a wheelchair-bound old lady with dementia. But because Miss Callie reminds him of his own mother, whom he failed miserably in her last days, he can’t say no when she keeps calling him for rides. Once a successful gourmet chef, Finn’s biggest concern now is making his rent, but half the time Callie doesn’t remember to pay him. And as she starts to feel better, she leads him on wild goose chases to find a Christmas date for her granddaughter.

When Finn meets Sydney, he’s quite sure that she’s never needed help finding a date. Does Miss Callie have an ulterior motive, or is this just a mission driven by delusions? He’s willing to do whatever he can to help fulfill Callie’s Christmas wish. He just never expected to be a vital part of it.

Click here to purchase your copy.

My Review

Finn was just trying to make a buck to pay his rent.  Sydney was doing the best she could on her own.  Callie needed to make her doctor's appointment.  Callie brought Finn and Syndey together in ways they would never have expected.  Callie was a force to be reckoned with, when she wasn't sleeping in the back of Finn's cab.  This was a fun book to read, as the characters were very real, and the perspective went back and forth between Finn and Sydney.   

It's a lighthearted, yet very touching contemporary read that I really enjoyed and highly recommend.

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher, Thomas Nelson, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

Book Review: Searching For You by Jody Hedlund

About the Book

Despite years on the run, Sophie Neumann is determined to care for two young children. She won't abandon them the way she thinks her older sisters abandoned her. But times are growing desperate, and when she falls in with the wrong crowd and witnesses a crime, she realizes fleeing 1850s New York is her only option.

Disappearing with her two young charges into a group of orphans heading west by train, Sophie hopes to find safety and a happy life. When the train stops in Illinois for the first placement of orphans, Sophie faces the most difficult choice of her life.

Reinhold Weiss has finally purchased his own small farm. With mounting debts, a harvest to bring in, and past scars that haunt him, he's in no position to give his heart away . . . but can he say no when his long-lost friend shows up on a nearby train pleading for his help?

My Review

She is amazing.  In this beautiful conclusion to the Orphan Train series, author Jody Hedlund uses her pen to create a story that brings out amazing depth of feeling.  I felt all of the uncertainty, the desperation, and the despair, love, joy and passion that Sophie Neumann felt throughout the book.  And the passion!!  Hedlund describes the physical desire between Sophie and Reinhold in a very believable way, but always keeps it clean.

This book can be read as a stand-alone, but it was especially wonderful to have read it as a part of the series.  I recommend it for fans of historical romance, and for those who have an interest in the orphan trains that began in the 1850s.

I received a copy from the publisher, Bethany House, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

About the Author

Jody Hedlund is the author of over twenty historicals for both adults and teens and is the winner of numerous awards including the Christy, Carol, and Christian Book Award.

Jody lives in central Michigan with her husband, five busy children, and five spoiled cats. Although Jody prefers to experience daring and dangerous adventures through her characters rather than in real life, she’s learned that a calm existence is simply not meant to be (at least in this phase of her life!).

When she’s not penning another of her page-turning stories, she loves to spend her time reading, especially when it also involves consuming coffee and chocolate.

Book Review: Shelter of the Most High by Connilyn Cossette

About the Book

The daughter of a pagan high priest, Sofea finds solace from her troubles in the freedom of the ocean. But when marauders attack her village on the island of Sicily, she and her cousin are taken across the sea to the shores of Canaan.

Eitan has lived in Kedesh, a City of Refuge, for the last eleven years, haunted by a tragedy in his childhood and chafing at the boundaries placed on him. He is immediately captivated by Sofea, but revealing his most guarded secret could mean drawing her into the danger of his past.

As threats from outside the walls loom and traitors are uncovered within, Sofea and Eitan are plunged into the midst of a murder plot. Will they break free from the shackles of the past in time to uncover the betrayal and save their lives and the lives of those they love?

My Review

Having read all of Cossette's previous novels, I was intrigued at the introduction to Sofea and Prezi in their native homeland.  What a heart wrenching, yet exciting beginning to this book!  Then this book continued to take me from the depths of despair to the heights of elation.

It was wonderful to join Moriyah's family eleven years later.  Her dreams had come true, and this book chronicles the emotional and spiritual journey of her adopted son, Eitan.

I really appreciated knowing the background of all the characters, but the book does stand alone.  I highly recommend it to those who enjoy Biblical fiction.

I received a copy from the publisher, Bethany House, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

Book Review with a Giveaway: The Three Faces of Nellie by Robynne Elizabeth Miller


About the Book

Book: The Three Faces of Nellie
Author: Robynne Elizabeth Miller
Genre: Non-fiction, Historical
Release Date: November, 2016
Publisher: Practical Pioneer Press


Whether you love her, hate her, or love to hate her, Nellie Oleson is one of the most recognizable literary figures of the 20th century. But Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the Little House on the Prairie series in which Nellie appears, had a secret. . .Nellie wasn’t a real person! Instead, she was a composite character created from three girls Laura knew in childhood: Nellie Owens, Genevieve Masters, and Estella Gilbert.

The Little House character of Nellie Oleson is one-dimensional: snobbish, selfish, and thoroughly unpleasant. But what about the real women behind Laura’s creation? They were an intriguing mix of the not-so-nice and the unexpectedly redeemable. In short, they were human.

Discovering the true stories behind Nellie, Genevieve, and Estella has been a fascinating journey. All three ended up on the West Coast at one point. . .true westward movement! One was widowed twice, one ended up divorced, and one died way too young. Two only had one child, and one had three, though she outlived her youngest by a very long time. There’s even some “Nellie-like” drama in there: Embezzlement. Lying on censuses. Shady land deals.

But there are some beautiful things, too. . .like the enduring love of a husband after his young wife died. Or the rare closeness of a mother and daughter who shared their lives as adults. Or the strength of a young widowed mother who not only cared for her son, but headed out west, in true pioneer fashion, while she did so.

Laura Ingalls Wilder did a masterful job of creating the character of Nellie Oleson. But the three real-life women behind that iconic character are, in my opinion, infinitely more intriguing.

My Review

Who knew?!  I consider my self a huge Little House fan, but obviously I'm not as huge a fan as those who already knew this little tidbit:  Apparently, Nellie Oleson of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House books was a character created by Laura, but was based on three different girls in her childhood.  This book details those three girls' lives, such as when they traveled west, when they lived, when they knew Laura, and what they did in their adult lives.  The author presented substantiated research, and acknowledged when there may have been gaps in the knowledge.

I was very impressed with the amount of research that went into this book.  It was a fairly quick read, and sometimes was a little dry (think of the biblical begats), but yet fascinating to learn more of these girls who comprised the Nellie Oleson character.

It is worth the read for Little House fans, or others that appreciate genealogical research.

I received an ARC of this book from the author, through Celebrate Lit, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

Guest Post from Robynne

Nasty Nellie Oleson. One of the most iconic literary characters in literature. Whether you loved her … or hated her … or loved to hate her, she probably left a lasting impression on you. At least if you were a fan of the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder like I was growing up!

As a young girl, I loved Wilder’s tales of wagons, prairies, and grand westward adventures. Strangely, growing up didn’t change my love for all things Little House one tiny bit. But I did become deeply curious about the real life people behind some of the more fascinating Little House characters.

Namely, Nellie Oleson.

As I began to research Nellie, I learned a ton of interesting things. She wasn’t one person, for example. Laura Ingalls Wilder wove three girls she knew in childhood into one composite character for her books. One of the first “Nellie’s,” Nellie Owens, did have a brother named Willy, but did you know that he went blind from two separate incidents, one in childhood and one in adulthood? And did you know that all three of the “Nellies” ended up on the west coast at one point? Talk about true westward movement! One married a man who eventually went to prison for embezzlement, one did some shady land deals, and one shouldn’t have been a “Nellie” at all.

I suppose I was hoping for a good, old-fashioned redemption story. Wouldn’t it have been wonderful if the mean girl in Wilder’s stories grew up to work with orphans or rescue unwanted animals? Alas, that’s not exactly what happened. But the stories of these three women were fascinating all the same.

I hope you have as much fun discovering the real stories behind the famous Nellie Oleson as I did!

Book review: A Honey of a Christmas by Jessica R. Patch

About the Book

They say opposites attract; it’ll take a Christmas miracle to keep this couple from killing one another!

Agnes Piercy is finally going to make her mark now that she’s in charge of the Honeyhaven Winter Wonderland. She’s created a new event this year—Santa’s Village—which will bring in tons of tourists and money for charities and church ministries, and secure her a full client list when she opens up her own event planning business. But things go haywire from the get-go, including her feelings for one Tuck Renner.

Tuck Renner has been tasked (against his will) with building the Santa’s Village which means taking orders from Miss Bossy Pants herself—Agnes Piercy. Sadly, she’s off to a seriously rocky start. Feeling sorry for her, and a lot sorry for himself having to hear about it day in and out, he vows to make this the greatest event ever. Except nothing goes as planned. But everything may end up exactly like it was meant to.

You can purchase a copy of this book here.

My Review

This contemporary novella took place in a small southern town, where everyone knows everyone else, and everyone knows everyone else's business.  But it was great seeing the whole town come together for a special Christmas celebration.  Having been friends for so long, Agnes and Tuck are both surprised and recalcitrant as they develop feelings for each other.  Having been irritants to each other for so long, there conversations tended to be somewhat harsh as they negotiated this turn in their relationship.

There were many great lessons learned in this book, about forgiveness, trust, and speaking the truth.  This was second in a series, and enough background was given from the first book so I was informed, but not bogged down.

I recommend this book for those who love a  good Christmas romance!

I received an e-ARC of this book from the author for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

Book review: Cold Case Christmas by Jessica R. Patch

About the Book

Secrets lie buried in ice...

One of them can kill her.

Home for Christmas after her long-missing mother’s body is found, nothing will keep Nora Livingstone from uncovering the truth about the cold case. Especially not Deputy Sheriff Rush Buchanan, whom she once loved and left. Even when threats become attempts on her life, Rush can’t dissuade her—but he will protect her. Because someone is determined to bury the truth…or bury Nora.

My Review

No warm fuzzies in this Christmas story.

This is an incredibly suspenseful story set at Christmas time.  You'll be watching over your shoulder as Nora and Rush try to unravel the mystery of her mother's untimely death seventeen years ago.  As Nora seeks answers to questions regarding this tragedy, she and Rush investigate the possibility of rekindling the relationship they once had.  Readers of romantic suspense will be thrilled with this can't-put-it-down novel.

Release Date: November 1, 2018


A witness with amnesia

Can she trust this Gold Country Cowboy with her life?

Tracy Wilson witnessed a murder—but after a head injury, she can’t remember what she saw. Now someone plans to silence her for good, and only cowboy Keegan Thorn believes her. With a killer after her at Christmas, Tracy is running out of time to remember…and falling dangerously hard for the cowboy who could break her heart.

Click here to purchase your copy!

My Review

The action and suspense in this novel is non-stop, beginning on the very first page.  I was always surprised at the many plot twists.  I was also pleased with the character development in this novel.  Keegan Thorn, although he wanted to be Tracy's hero, could not be what he needed to be for her, until he made peace with the other people around him.

I highly recommend this novel for fans of romantic suspense.  Those who enjoy westerns will appreciate the horse-loving setting, also.

I received an ARC of this book from the author, through Celebrate Lit, for review purposes.  The thoughts expressed here are my own.

Guest Post from Dana
Writing this book was bittersweet for me. It was lovely to finally be able to tell youngest Thorn brother Keegan’s story, but I sure am sorry to say goodbye to this series! It was such fun to write about these four kinsmen and the family bonds that held them together through all manner of murder and mayhem! Here at Mentink Manor, we have recently sent a bear cub away to college for the first time. It feels like I have lost a limb now that my Boo Boo is gone! Fortunately, we will enjoy having her home for the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Though it won’t be a cozy country Christmas like it is for Keegan (we live in a city of 80,000 here in Northern, CA) we will be thrilled to have all our family home to celebrate together (Mama Bear, Papa Bear, two cubs, a naughty terrier, and a senior citizen box turtle!) I hope you enjoy this last installment in the Gold Country Cowboy series. I am sending along our best wishes for a blessed holiday season, from our Mentink household to yours!
