To Treasure an Heiress by Roseanna M. White


So, how does one go about writing a review for a fabulous book without spoilers? I’m not certain that I can but I’ll give it my best shot.

To Treasure an Heiress is Roseanna M. White’s second installment of her The Secrets of the Isles series. The story takes up pretty much where The Nature of a Lady left off as Beth Tremayne and her friends and relatives continue their search for the legendary pirate’s treasure that has been the subject of island legend for many generations. Familiar characters are abundant and new ones add even more interest to the tale.

This may be the most humorous novel that I’ve read by this author, especially the endearing hero Lord Sheridan who has a bad habit of speaking aloud what he is thinking. He and Beth are at odds for a good many chapters, mostly because she holds it against him that he is in possession of her own treasured trinket box. But how can she resist such a charming man who obviously seems to have fallen head over heels for her (and I mean that almost literally). Needless to say, readers should be most pleased at the resolution of their differences even as they discover another budding romance or two to root for.

As always, White has written a beautifully entertaining novel that is laced with adventure, mystery, romance, and a believable journey to faith that takes place in a gorgeous setting. What more could one ask? Do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of To Treasure an Heiress as well as The Nature of a Lady. Either can be enjoyed on its own but read in the proper sequence they will be even better.

The Secrets of the Isles, 2
Releases January 4, 2022


Beth Tremayne has always been drawn to adventure. During her childhood, she fed that desire by exploring every inch of the Isles of Scilly. As an adolescent, she dreamed of love in London’s ballrooms. Now, stumbling across an old map on her family’s property, she’s found more adventure than she ever dreamed in the hunt for pirate treasure. Unfortunately, Beth can’t escape the attentions of her family’s guest, Lord Sheridan.

Sheridan has spent years pursuing whatever archaeological interest caught his imagination. And when he discovers that Beth’s search connects with one of his favorite pirates of history, he can’t help getting involved. Plus, he finds her irresistible, even though she insists he stole a prized possession of hers.

As they work together following different clues and drawing closer to danger, they start to piece together a story of tragic love and piratical adventure. But the true surprise is the treasure they discover in one another.

The Lines Between Us by Amy Lynn Green


When I opened The Lines Between Us I expected to find a WW2 story. What I found was so much more. Instead of battles in Europe or other expected scenarios, I found conscientious objectors whose assignments as smoke jumpers placed them in frequent danger yet were considered cowards by the community. I also found mystery and danger and deception and even unexplained death.

The Lines Between Us is so well written and obviously well researched. The story itself moves along at a steady pace and the reader is as much in the dark as the characters for most of the book. Emotional and often heart-breaking, the narrative allows readers to experience the depths of the characters’ feelings.

While there is a limited amount of action, conflict and tension between characters is palpable. I did enjoy witnessing changes of attitude among several of them. One thing I gained from reading this book is that true heroes are not always who we expect. They might be hiding right next to us.

A wonderful book, The Lines Between Us would be an excellent gift for those who enjoy WW2 novels and might just be a welcome surprise. Don’t hesitate to add it to your own library!

A WWII novel of courage and conviction, based on the true experience of the men who fought fires as conscientious objectors and the women who fought prejudice to serve in the Women’s Army Corps.

Since the attack on Pearl Harbor, Gordon Hooper and his buddy Jack Armitage have stuck to their values as conscientious objectors. Much to their families’ and country’s chagrin, they volunteer as smokejumpers rather than enlisting, parachuting into and extinguishing raging wildfires in Oregon. But the number of winter blazes they’re called to seems suspiciously high, and when an accident leaves Jack badly injured, Gordon realizes the facts don’t add up.

A member of the Women’s Army Corps, Dorie Armitage has long been ashamed of her brother’s pacifism, but she’s shocked by news of his accident. Determined to find out why he was harmed, she arrives at the national forest under the guise of conducting an army report . . . and finds herself forced to work with Gordon. He believes it’s wrong to lie; she’s willing to do whatever it takes for justice to be done. As they search for clues, Gordon and Dorie must wrestle with their convictions about war and peace and decide what to do with the troubling secrets they discover.

Love on the Range by Mary Connealy


I always enjoy any book by Mary Connealy because I know I am sure to find a good dose of her signature humor mixed in with a complex romance and usually plenty of action and suspense. Lately the author’s books have leaned somewhat away from her earlier comedic offerings and I have found quite a bit more mystery and suspense woven through her tales. I really like that. I do enjoy a story that makes me laugh but lately I find that over-the-top humor sometimes just wears me out.

Another final book of a series, Love on the Range features the last unmarried Hunt brother Wyatt and Molly Garner who has been left to care for him as he recovers from his injuries. Determined to never marry and suffer her mother’s fate, Molly fights her growing attraction to Wyatt. Readers will quickly recognize how this story will end.

Yet before that end is reached, there is ample action, danger, and mystery to distract the reader. I enjoyed seeing how the brothers, who were previously unknown to each other, developed strong and loyal relationships that made them a strong unit difficult to overcome. It was especially fun to see the unique traits that each of the men and women brought to the table that enabled them to do what needed done. It made me think of the one body described in 1 Corinthians 12.

Love on the Range can be enjoyed on its own but I do recommend reading the entire series in order to get the most from it. Another great series from Mary Connealy has reached the end. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for her readers next.

Falling for someone who doesn’t want to get married is soon to be the least of his concerns.

While his brothers and their new wives search for who shot him, Wyatt Hunt is temporarily bedridden and completely miserable. Somehow Molly Garner’s limited skills have made her the most qualified in their circle to care for Wyatt. But by the time he’s healed, she’s fed up with him and the whole ungrateful family. For even worse than his grumpiness were the few unguarded moments when he pulled at her heartstrings, and she has long been determined to never repeat her mother’s mistakes.

When alternate plans of finding her own independent life fall through, Molly volunteers to work for the Pinkertons and help investigate nearby ranch owner Oliver Hawkins. She signs on to be his housekeeper, hoping to find clues to prove his nefarious, and possibly murderous, past. Wyatt refuses to let her risk it alone and offers to act as Hawkins’s new foreman.

But when another Pinkerton agent gets shot, they realize Hawkins isn’t the only danger. The Hunt brothers will have to band together to face all the troubles of life and love that suddenly surround them.

Crosshairs by Patricia Bradley


I often receive raised eyebrows when I mention that I enjoy Christian suspense. They probably wonder how a novel that includes murder and/or other potentially violent content could ever be considered Christian. Yet these same people think nothing about reading their true crime or other secular novels or watching violent TV or movies. I personally love that authors such as Patricia Bradley offer me an alternative that not only includes a riveting mystery and a bit of white knuckle suspense but I can count on their novels to be squeaky clean in romantic relationships and even the violent content does not include gratuitous blood and gore.

Crosshairs is Bradley’s latest and final novel in her Natchez Trace Park Rangers series. Action starts on the beginning pages and ramps up as the pages turn. Featuring Ranger Ainsley Beaumont who has return to Natchez to investigate the murder of a teen and former FBI sniper Lincoln Steele whose current position as an interpretive ranger is a bit puzzling to Ainsley. The pair must work together to solve the crime but they have a past together that could make that difficult.

The narrative includes multiple characters and story lines that offer more than one motive for the murder as well as the fact that Ainsley also is an obvious target. Is everything connected or just a coincidence? As family secrets are revealed and the suspect list grows, there are enough twists and surprises to confuse even the best detective.

I thoroughly enjoyed Crosshairs and the previous books in this series. I love the author’s attention to detail and the way she manages to weave the Gospel message subtly into the story. I highly recommend this book.

When evil just won’t quit, good must prevail

Investigative Services Branch ranger Ainsley Beaumont wishes the visit to her hometown of Natchez, Mississippi, was under better circumstances. When she arrived to investigate the murder of a pregnant teenager, she never imagined that she would become the killer’s next target–or that she’d have to work alongside an old flame.

After he almost killed a child, former FBI sniper Lincoln Steele couldn’t bring himself to fire a gun, which had deadly consequences for his best friend. Crushed beneath a load of guilt, Linc is working at Melrose Estate as an interpretive ranger. But as danger closes in on Ainsley during her murder investigation, Linc will have to find the courage to protect her.

The only question is, will it be too little, too late?

Exposing the Spiritual Roots of Diabetes


As a diabetic for a number of years, I was intrigued by the book Exposing the Spiritual Roots of Diabetes. I hoped to gain some knowledge that would at least help work with my meds to help control my glucose levels more efficiently. Naturally I’d love to be healed from this awful condition if possible.

This book is much more than I expected. Not only does it explain how diabetes affects the body and some of the spiritual issues that may be responsible for it as well as keeping it active. The doctor also goes into detail about how the body works and how our minds affect crucial systems within our bodies. To top it off, this book has a clear explanation complete with a wealth of scripture to back it up of how our relationship to the Lord affects every aspect of our lives, even our health.

This is one book that not only applies to diabetes but probably every other disease that affects us. With detailed scripture, the doctor shows us how to apply Biblical truth to our lives in order to develop the relationship we need and the faith that results from it.

Obviously, overcoming physical disease will not be an easy one time fix but will require concentrated effort toward recognizing the problem, repentance, and drawing closer to the Lord. Exposing the Spiritual Roots of Diabetes would make an excellent Bible study and a personal handbook for deep study.
