CFBA: Paige Torn

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Paige Torn
Think (May 1, 2013)
Erynn Mangum


A few things about her: So, if we were having this conversation in person, we would probably be hanging out at Starbucks or one of the cute coffeehouses in town. I’m nuts about all things coffee, I’m crazy about all things pink and girly, and I love, love, love the Food Network! I’m married to my best friend and the most amazing guy ever, Jon. He is amiable toward coffee, does not like anything pink or girly and tolerates the Food Network. So, we make a good match! In July 2010, we became parents to one of the funniest, cutest, sweetest little guys in the whole world (and nope, we aren’t biased at all!), our Nater-Tot, who is legally known as Nathan. Most days, I’m cleaning up messes, making goofy faces, trying to fit some writing in, and just LOVING the life that God has given me!


Everyone knows they can count on Paige Alder. But between volunteering at church, putting in overtime at work, and helping her best friend plan an anniversary party, she's lucky to grab a cheese stick for dinner. Paige can't even remember the last time she had a few minutes to relax or dig into God's Word. Then she meets laid-back Tyler, an attractive, Jesus-loving guy. Will he be able to help Paige get her priorities on track?

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

Have you ever had those moments where you feel like the Tazmanian Devil?  Well, once you meet Paige, you'll find yourself drawn into her whirlwind, don't forget to take a breath now and then!

Paige just doesn't know how to stop, she's a 'yes' person to the greatest extreme, but is it worth it?  Her craziness can't go on forever, at least you would hope.  As I read the book I felt myself wanting to give her all kinds of advice, thankfully, there were others looking out for her as well!

This is one of those books that will wrap you in, drive you nuts, yet leave you smiling.

CFBA: Pieces of the Heart

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Pieces of the Heart
Abingdon Press (June 1, 2013)
Bonnie S. Calhoun


Bonnie S. Calhoun is Owner/Director of Christian Fiction Blog Alliance, owner/publisher of Christian Fiction Online Magazine, Northeast Zone Director for American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW), the ACFW ‘2011 Mentor of the Year,” President of (CAN) Christian Authors Network, and Appointment Coordinator for both the Colorado Christian Writers Conference (CCWC) and the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference(GPCWC).

For the last six years she has taught workshops in Facebook, Twitter, Blogging, and creating Social Media promotions at both CCWC, and GPCWC, and in 2011 at the Montrose, Pa Christian Writers Conference. She also taught a Facebook workshop at the 2012 ACFW conference.

Bonnie and her husband live in a log cabin in upstate area of New York with a dog and cat who think she’s wait-staff.

Her sites are:


Cordelia Grace watched Bernard Howard, the love of her young life, go off to fight for our country in WWII. And she has spent the last three years creating the Pine Cone quilt that will grace their marriage bed when he comes home. Each row of triangles signifies a layer in her life, sets of memories, hopes, dreams, and prayers for her future, enough spoken words to cover them forever. Her image of their “happy-ever-after” grows proportionally as the quilt expands.

But is the man that returns from the war, the same man that she remembered? Are the dark shades of color that she had to use for the outside edges of the beloved quilt prophetic of her life to come? Can love and faith overcome all?

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


Bonnie Calhoun......LOVE IT!

Bonnie has a way of making her characters larger than a good way!  Cordelia is quite the girl, she's strong, she's passionate and you just can't help fall in love with her.  I had a love/hate relationship with her boyfriend Bernard, but then again, so did Cordelia, so I suppose that was to be expected!

It's not too often that we read about African-American's and their role in WW2, so it was eye-opening to read about how Bernard and his buddies were treated, although it saddened me, I'm glad that I know now what they went through.

This book is one that will bring sadness as well as joy, and it shows how we CAN survive through rough times, too many times people just give up when it gets rough, not Cordelia, and that made her spectacular in my eyes.

A great read.

Pennsylvania Patchwork a review and a Lifuse Giveaway!

Pennsylvania PatchworkSeattle native Holly Fisher is smitten by Lancaster County, its simplicity and her long lost relatives. In the sequel to bestselling Leaving Lancaster, Holly embraces the Amish culture, learning to slow down to see what – and who – really matters.

Meeting the family that her mother had kept hidden from her, Holly comes face to face with her real life and blood legacy. She also falls for the charming Zach, a handsome Mennonite veterinarian who is everything she’s ever wanted in a husband: confident, kind, successful, and authentic. And Zach proposes marriage. Is this too soon? Is this the right choice? Mother and Amish grandmother think she’s rushing into too much of a lifestyle change. Holly is in love with Zach and that precludes everything. Until she meets an attractive Amish man. And an old suitor shows up.

Pennyslvania Patchwork is the moving, richly told story of one woman’s heart, her faith and trust, and the choices she makes. Never easy, but one choice can change your destiny.

Many young Amish want to flee their roots, so it's always a bit impressive when an outsider becomes taken with the ways of the Amish and wants in!  ....and Holly wants in.

Holly seems to have found her place in life, is it because she truly loves it, or is it because it has been hidden from her?  What about the men in her life, there's always a man to confuse things, isn't there?!

This Amish read was somewhat predictable, but still very enjoyable, great summer read if you're looking for a bit of sweet romance!

CFBA: Love Stock and Over a Barrel

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Lock, Stock and Over a Barrel
B&H Publishing Group (April 30, 2013)
Melody Carlson


Over the years, Melody Carlson has worn many hats, from pre-school teacher to youth counselor to political activist to senior editor. But most of all, she loves to write! Currently she freelances from her home. In the past eight years, she has published over ninety books for children, teens, and adults--with sales totaling more than two million and many titles appearing on the ECPA Bestsellers List. Several of her books have been finalists for, and winners of, various writing awards.

She has two grown sons and lives in Central Oregon with her husband and chocolate lab retriever. They enjoy skiing, hiking, gardening, camping and biking in the beautiful Cascade Mountains.


With high hopes, Dorothy Ballinger lands her dream job at The New York Times. But it's not long until writing about weddings becomes a painful reminder of her own failed romance, and her love of the city slowly sours as well. Is it time to give up the Big Apple for her small hometown of Appleton?

When her eccentric Aunt Dot passes away and leaves a sizeable estate to Dorothy, going back home is an easy choice. What isn’t easy is coming to terms with the downright odd clauses written into the will.

Dorothy only stands to inherit the estate if she agrees to her aunt's very specific posthumous terms -- personal and professional. And if she fails to comply, the sprawling old Victorian house shall be bequeathed to . . . Aunt Dot’s cats.

And if Dorothy thinks that’s odd, wait until she finds out an array of secrets about Aunt Dot's life, and how imperfect circumstances can sometimes lead to God's perfect timing.

If you would liketo read the first chapter of Lock, Stock and Over a Barrel, go HERE.

Melody Carlson never disappoints, and she's kept the ball rolling with this entertaining, small town read!  Inheriting is one thing, but when it comes with conditions.....a whole different story, especially when the relatives are not too happy that she's the only one who inherits!

I found myself laughing out loud several times while turning the pages of this good humored read, this book is a part of a new series, and promises to be a good one!

CFBA: Fear Has a Name

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Fear Has a Name
David C. Cook (June 1, 2013)
Creston Mapes


Creston has fond memories of his boyhood in Bath, Ohio, where he became enchanted with his future wife, way back in the fourth grade. His father, Bernie, owned and operated The Weathervane Furniture Shop in town. The whole family lived right upstairs in the century-old house known as "The Shop."

Creston studied journalism at Bowling Green State University, then began his writing career. During the past 30 years, he has worked as a reporter, corporate copywriter, creative director, freelance writer, and author.


From popular suspense author Creston Mapes comes another faith-building thriller, a tale that follows journalist Jack Crittendon as he fights to protect his family from a stalker's terrifying schemes, investigates a pastor's mysterious disappearance, and struggles to keep his faith amidst unthinkable fear.

With his family's safety on the line, Crittendon realizes there are secrets behind "Christian" walls--secrets with painful, deadly implications. He must find the faith to trust a God who allows inconceivable trials, and the courage to guard his family, with danger exploding at every turn.

Through it all--the sharp, character-driven writing for which Mapes is known--takes fans and new readers on an edge-of-your-seat journey that explores the harsh, far-reaching consequences of bullying and the Christian response to fear.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Fear Has a Name, go HERE.

Do you like suspense?  From the first page of the book my nerves were on edge.  Pamela is home with her 2 young children the first time....then later, alone in a car on a bridge on a stormy night.  Her husband is arrested, but did he do it?

As the book carries on, things get worse and worse, the only thing left is faith, faith to believe that the stalker will be caught, that the truth will be revealed, but how long will it take, can they survive?

I really enjoyed this book, I'm certain that if I hadn't been so tired the night I first opened it, I would have read it straight through.  If you like suspense and a bit of terror you'll love this thrilling read.

Children's Book Review: Noah's Ark

This fun activity book includes on-the-page puzzles, games, and stories—all based around the story of Noah. There is also a page of stickers for completing the activities. The cute and colorful illustrations jump off the page and keep children engaged with the activities. There's plenty for children to do, on their own or with an adult, and this handy book can be used during the holidays, on journeys, or just to fill the time on a rainy day.

For ages 3-5

This interactive story book is great fun for young children.  With stickers to place on the pages, and a fun rhyming story this is an excellent way to teach younger children the story of Noah.  There are fun activities in this book as well as wonderful illustrations.

The book may be a little light on Biblical's more of a 'fun' interactive book on Noah, but as it is written for 3-5 year olds I think it's a good start for them and an excellent way for them to learn the basics in an entertaining way.

Book Review: Barefoot Summer

Madison’s heart has been closed for years. But one summer can change everything.

Barefoot SummerIn the years since her twin brother’s drowning, Madison McKinley has struggled to put it behind her. Despite the support of her close-knit family and her gratifying job as a veterinarian in their riverside town, the loss still haunts her.

To find closure, Madison sets out to fulfill her brother’s dream of winning the town’s annual regatta. But first she has to learn to sail, and fast.

Beckett O’Reilly knows Madison is out of his league, but someone neglected to tell his heart. Now she needs his help—and he’ll give it, because he owes her far more than she’ll ever know.

Madison will do anything—even work with the infamous Beckett O’Reilly—to reach her goal. And as much as she’d like to deny it, the chemistry between them is electrifying. As summer wanes, her feelings for him grow and a fledgling faith takes root in her heart.

But Beckett harbors a secret that will test the limits of their new love. Can their romance survive summer’s challenges? And will achieving her brother’s dream give Madison the peace she desperately seeks?

Purchase a copy here.
Learn more at Denise’s website.

Summer....what's not to enjoy about a summer book?  Well, summer isn't all about fun and playing in the sun, especially when you're trying to deal with a great loss.  The loss of your twin brother.  Madison is struggling, really struggling and hopes that her nightmares will leave her, she hopes she will find closure, but what's the price?

The price....having to deal with someone she really just does not like, which of course means that you as the reader, are in for some fun!

This book has ups and downs, you'll find yourself smiling and happy, then before you know it, you'll turn the page and feel sadness...a whole lot of emotions are in this story and the characters were wonderful, I felt very drawn into the plot and found this to be a perfect curl up and read for a lazy day when I didn't want to get into anything too 'deep'.

Book Review: A Simple Song

Katrina Yoder loves to sing, but her Amish parents view singing as vainglory and a sin. Katrina's best friend, Bekka, is convinced Katrina should try out for American Star, a televised singing competition that Bekka has been secretly watching. Katrina resists the temptation until her father's health worsens. He desperately needs a surgery the family cannot afford. Katrina decides she must go against her parents' wishes to win the money needed to help her father. But how will she handle herself as an Amish teenager out in the world?

Teen girls will be swept into the excitement as Katrina ventures out of her quiet Amish world to become a reality television star. Will she be successful? And will she be accepted back into her community when it's over?

While reading this book you will think you've stepped into America's Got Talent, Amish style!  

Katrina Yoder LOVES to sing, she just can't help it, the only problem is that her father is very strict and singing simply is NOT allowed.  But why?

Everyone loves Katrina's voice, and Bekka takes matters into her own hands.  The problem....getting Katrina's father's blessing.

Katrina is thrown into a world she doesn't understand, nor does she really like it.  I loved the reactions Katrina had to the things of the world, and the Englisher's reactions to her as well.

Katrina has to do a lot of soul searching, and where it leads her is pretty incredible.

This was a fun Amish read, a different twist on the Amish culture!

CFBA: An Open Heart

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
An Open Heart
David C. Cook (June 1, 2013)
Harry Kraus


A Word from Harry:

I started writing my first novel during my last year of surgery training at UK. I was a chief resident, and started writing Stainless Steal Hearts in a call room at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Lexington. It was a crazy time to write! I had a very demanding schedule, often spending days and nights in the hospital. I had two sons at that time, and I recognized the wisdom in my wife's urging: "Now doesn't seem the right time for this dream."

My experience as a writer is far from typical. Having received my formal training in biology and chemistry and medicine, my only preparation for a writing career was a love for reading. The longest thing I'd written before my first novel was a term paper in undergraduate school. My first novel was accepted by Crossway Books and published in 1994, and it wasn't until after I had FOUR published novels that I even opened a book of instruction about the craft of writing fiction. This is not what I recommend to others! Yes, I was successful, but I was bending the "rules" without knowing it. I had a natural talent for plotting, but I realize my initial success may have stunted my growth as a writer. I'd have made faster progress if I'd have gone to the fiction teachers sooner.

I have three sons: Joel, Evan, and Samuel. Look closely in all of my books and you'll see them there. My lovely wife, Kris, provides the basic composition for all those beautiful, athletic, dedicated women in my novels.


Their Messages—From Beyond the Grave—Might Destroy Him ...

They hover between life and death, their hearts stopped on the surgery table. And the messages Dr. Jace Rawlings’ open-heart surgery patients bring back from beyond the grave cannot be ignored. For they predict the deaths of people around him, and point a finger of suspicion straight at him.

It thrusts Jace into a firestorm of controversy and danger. A maeltsrom blown by the darker winds of political intrigue and spiritual warfare. And the forces working against him will do anything to stop him from uncovering a truth they will kill to hide. He’d come to Kenya to establish a heart-surgery program for the poor. But what he will find in that place where he grew up will put everything at risk–his marriage, his career . . . his life.

If you would like to read the first chapter of An Open Heart, go HERE.

My Thoughts
A new twist on suspense....Medical Suspense!  Author Harry Kraus takes you to Kenya and uses his experience as a Dr. while writing this thrilling book.  Trust is something that is hard to come by, especially when you're a Dr., a Dr. with suspicion swirling around you.

This is not only a suspense, but a suspense filled with the love of God, and a very good read!

Book Review: The Offering

From bestselling author Angela Hunt, the heart-wrenching story of a young mother who unknowingly gave away her own child after serving as a surrogate for a childless couple.

The OfferingAfter growing up as an only child, Amanda Lisandra wants a big family. But since she and her soldier husband can’t afford to have more children right away, Mandy decides to earn money as a gestational carrier for a childless couple. She loves being pregnant, and while carrying the child she dreams of having her own son and maybe another daughter…

Just when the nearly perfect pregnancy is about to conclude, unexpected tragedy enters Mandy’s world and leaves her reeling. Devastated by grief, she surrenders the child she was carrying and struggles to regain her emotional equilibrium.

Two years later she studies a photograph of the baby she bore and wonders if the unthinkable has happened—could she have inadvertently given away her own biological child? Over the next few months Mandy struggles to decide between the desires of her grief-stricken heart and what’s best for the little boy she has never known.

Purchase a copy here.

Before you open this book....grab yourself a box of kleenex, you very well may need them.

Mandy and her husband are a couple in love, and the gladly share their love with their daughter, and would love to share it with even more children, but just don't have the money to do so.  When Mandy decided to become a surrogate I couldn't imagine being able to do such a thing.  Mandy did it well, even when the surrogate parents made outlandish requests, she willingly did as they asked.  Ok, maybe she grumbled a bit, but the money was well worth the effort.

Tragedy throws everything into an uproar, and this is where your heart will truly break.  Mandy is a character who is extremely strong, and has a lot of family support.  I truly enjoyed the outcome of this book, the healing involved, and the process.

This story could have gone several ways, and the path that author Angela Hunt chose, was one that may make you think, and wonder what you would do if you were Mandy.

A great read.
