This week I’m featuring Freedom’s Ring by Heidi Chiavaroli

A fast-paced story with a dual-timeline. This book has something for everyone.

Perhaps Brad says it best when he told Anaya “…its some sort of exhilarating ride that I never want to get off of.”

  1. I hope I can fit this one in. I love the cover and I’m hearing lots of good things about it!

    I have the first line from Thomas Locke’s “Fault Lines” on my blog today, but I’m going to share the first line from Candace Calvert’s “Disaster Status” from her Mercy Hospital Collection. The Kindle collection with all three books in the series is on sale this month for just $2.99, so I couldn’t resist!

    “Fire captain Scott McKenna bolted through the doors of Pacific Mercy ER, his boots thudding and heart pounding as the unconscious child began to stiffen and jerk in his arms.”

  3. I want to read this one so badly! It looks so good!

    I’m sharing about Three Wishes by Lisa T. Bergren over on my blog today, but I’m currently reading the sequel, Four Winds, so I’ll share that here. 🙂

    “Javier laughed and shook his head as we reached the top of the sand dune, Centinela loping in a wide circle around us. “I do not know if I can court a girl from the future and have a pet wolf,” he said in Spanish. “That is a lot to ask of one man.”

  4. I want to read that!
    Happy Friday!!
    My first line is from The Spinster & the Cowboy by Lena Nelson Dooley:
    “When the sharp rap on his closed office door roused him, Joshua Dillinger raised his gaze from the legal document he had been studying with intense concentration.”

  5. Happy Friday!

    Here’s mine from Misty Beller’s The Lady and the Mountain Man “Are you going to poison her the way you killed your last wife?”


  6. That one looks very interesting!

    After reading loads of fiction books in the summer, I’m taking a fiction break and reading non-fiction. 🙂 I’m currently reading “Arms and Equipment in the Civil War,” which is a super fascinating read that goes in depth with all of the weapons used, tactics used, etc.

  7. I definitely want to read this book!!!
    I’m currently reading The Promise of Breeze Hill by Pam Hillman. The first line is: “Connor O’Shea braced his boots against the auction block and glared at the crowd gathering on the landing.”

  8. I know I’m breaking protocol but I’m still readin the same book! So this is the first line of another chapter.. just to whet your reading appetite:
    “Right… right here.” Peter came to a halt between two massive trees where the undergrowth provided a good screen for anyone hiding.
    A Name Unknown by Roseanna White.
    I need to find more time to read!
