On Magnolia Lane - Denise Hunter

synopsis: Jack has a years long crush on Daisy. If he could convince her to think of him as something other than her pastor, maybe he could get somewhere. Daisy has tried just about everything to find her future husband. She's finally met a guy online she thinks she might be falling for. If only her growing feelings for her pastor/friend weren't confusing the issue.

Review: Clear your calendar, you're not going to get anything done once you start this one. Yep, it's a late nighter, don't get the housework done, we're having pizza for dinner book. This third book in the series is perhaps the best. Certainly it's my favorite. You get glimpses of the characters from the previous books but having read their stories is not essential to keep up with Jack and Daisy. They're just such wonderful people you love to get to know them better - finally. The whole story just makes you happy because you so want them to be happy; and they're getting there! Not as edgy (though there's definitely an eyebrow lifter) as the previous books, and the minimal talk of faith seems much more natural in this one. Yay Denise! This one is a winner.

The Fearless Warrior - Kimberly Krey

Synopsis: Jace has been assigned to take down a human trafficking ring. Trouble is, he's discovered one of the prime targets for said ring is a teen crush he hasn't quite gotten over. Amy is thrilled to hear from Jace after so many years. Turns out, he's not the only one harboring a crush. If Jace can just keep Amy out of harms way, they might just be able to make things work out afterall.

Review: Kimberly always does a good job of balancing the action and adventure part of the story with a good dose of romance. Jace and Amy are an adorable couple that you're just so glad has reconnected. Jace is, of course, a terrific hero and Amy is a darling heroine. The books in this series may not be entirely realistic, but they're quick, fun reads that add a dash of adventure to your day. 

Bonus: A portion of the proceeds from this book go to Operation Underground Railroad. One of our favorite organizations and one definitely worthy of your time and attention. Check them out here:

Waiting for a Girl Like You - Delaney Cameron

Synopsis: Rowan's taken a job with a photography studio in St. Mary's to get away from the big city. She's spent years raising her younger siblings and, with an empty nest, she's getting used to having time for her own pursuits. Frank is thanking his lucky stars to have been reunited with the beautiful woman he met years earlier while helping his younger sister move into her college dorm. He's hoping he can convince her he should be one of her pursuits. She's not so sure he'd even want to be with an older woman.

Review: The 10th book in a great series. Rowan is a really likeable heroine. She's grounded and selfless and talented and wise. Frank is a reformed bad-boy that you just can't not like. He's kind and thoughtful and persistent! A really nice couple that just take a little while to work through their own insecurities and doubts about themselves. Once they do, it's lovely.
