Hidden Among the Stars by Melanie Dobson

From the award-winning author of Catching the Wind, which Publishers Weekly called “unforgettable” and a “must-read,” comes another gripping time-slip novel about hidden treasure, a castle, and ordinary people who resisted evil in their own extraordinary way.

Synopsis:

The year is 1938, and as Hitler’s troops sweep into Vienna, Austrian Max Dornbach promises to help his Jewish friends hide their most valuable possessions from the Nazis, smuggling them to his family’s summer estate near the picturesque village of Hallstatt. He enlists the help of Annika Knopf, his childhood friend and the caretaker’s daughter, who is eager to help the man she’s loved her entire life. But when Max also brings Luzia Weiss, a young Jewish woman, to hide at the castle, it complicates Annika’s feelings and puts their entire plan—even their very lives—in jeopardy. Especially when the Nazis come to scour the estate and find both Luzia and the treasure gone.

Eighty years later, Callie Randall is mostly content with her quiet life, running a bookstore with her sister and reaching out into the world through her blog. Then she finds a cryptic list in an old edition of Bambi that connects her to Annika’s story . . . and maybe to the long-buried story of a dear friend. As she digs into the past, Callie must risk venturing outside the safe world she’s built for a chance at answers, adventure, and maybe even new love.

My Thoughts:

This poignant story wove around my heart and has left a lasting imprint that is sure to remain. Like a master orchestral composition, this story started in broad lyrical strokes and gradually build upon itself into a sweeping masterpiece. Past and present blend together seamlessly in this sweeping saga of love, loss and the power of restoration.

My copy of this book is awash in colorful highlights and page-flags noting parts that I especially enjoyed, quotes, and important details. The setting of the story sets the tone, but its the dynamic characters that carry the plot along, setting the tempo and the lyrical melody. I found myself simultaneously reaching for the tissue box and hugging the book when I finished.

Faith in God plays a central role in the characters lives. This gentle reminder weaved into the story, “God is infinitely more beautiful and loving and tender and kind than anything we can imagine of Him.”

Both vibrant and enduring, this dual-timeline story that is set primarily in Austria during World War II is one that you won’t want to miss! I give this story 5 enthusiastic stars. Order your copy today, or request it from your local library.

Freedom’s Kiss (Carrington Family #3) by Sarah Monzon

Synopsis:

They were both prisoners of their past. Could legacy be the key to setting them free?

Olivia Arroyo knows who she is and where she’s going—her sense of family responsibility a stepping stone to her dream of becoming a chef. When her employer refuses her the chance to move from server to the kitchen, she makes another opportunity for herself with the owner of a new food truck. But her life derails when a hidden piece of her past suddenly comes to light, and she discovers everything she thought she knew about herself has been a lie.

A single decision can have innumerable consequences—a truth that has changed Adam Carrington’s life. A criminal defense attorney turned food truck owner, he is haunted by his role in an unpardonable act and driven by his need to make restitution. Unexpected help comes in the form of a feisty, raven-haired beauty, but she soon begins challenging his kitchen as well as his heart.

Florida, 1816
Propelled by a fleeting hope of freedom, Winnie and her family escape slavery and find refuge and new life with the Seminole Indians of Florida. But their future is still uncertain as threats of war, a return to slavery, and removal to the west shake their tentative grasp on freedom. Will they ever step out of the shadow of fear to leave a legacy of deliverance?

My Thoughts:

I absolutely loved reading this latest dual-timeline book from Sarah Monzon. Both of the stories equally captivated my attention, and I fell in love with the characters.

This page-turning story seamless blends together characters separated by two hundred years, however, they each must learn that there is freedom in following God’s plan. We have the freedom to make our own choices, but it is in choosing God’s plan that we will find true happiness.

Equally engaging and compelling, both of the timelines in this story will have you eagerly turning pages. A perfect blend of past and present that lingered in my thoughts and imagination long after I’d read the final​ chapter.

I give this book 4.5 stars and would encourage you to pick up​ a copy for yourself to enjoy immediately! I have come to know that picking up one of Sarah Monzon’s books I’ll not only be whisked away to a new place​ but meet some fascinating characters. This book has found a home on my keeper shelf!

(I receive complimentary books for review from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including Netgalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own.)

TheReckoningAtGossamerPondFor over a century, the town of Gossamer Grove has thrived on its charm and Midwestern values, but Annalise Forsythe knows painful secrets, including her own, hover just beneath the pleasant facade. When a man is found dead in his run-down trailer home, Annalise inherits the trailer, along with the pictures, vintage obituaries, and old revival posters covering its walls. As she sorts through the collection, she’s wholly unprepared for the ramifications of the dark and deadly secrets she’ll uncover.

A century earlier, Gossamer Grove has been stirred into chaos by the arrival of controversial and charismatic twin revivalists. The chaos takes a murderous turn when Libby Sheffield, working at her father’s newspaper, receives an obituary for a reputable church deacon hours before his death. As she works with the deacon’s son to unravel the mystery behind the crime, it becomes undeniably clear that a reckoning has come to town–but it isn’t until another obituary arrives that they realize the true depths of the danger they’ve waded into.

Two women, separated by a hundred years, must uncover the secrets within the borders of their own town before it’s too late and they lose their future–or their very souls.

The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond

 

Welcome Jaime! I’m super excited to have you visiting with us today! Let’s get started with a few fun questions and then chat about the book.

cornucopia-1789664_640Q:  What is your favorite season, and why?

Jaime:  I love Autumn! Everything about it. The cold, the dewy leaves, the crisp air, sweaters, fluffy blankets, coffee, oh man … now I’m getting excited all over again!

Trisha:  Autumn is a wonderful season. I especially love all the beautiful colors!

 

lantern-2369904_640Q:  What is the best part of your day?

Jaime:  It sounds weird, but that part of the evening when kids are in bed and it’s just me and my husband and we can catch up. This is not to say that I don’t thoroughly anticipate being with my kids! ❤ lol

Trisha:  I totally understand! It is nice when you can just relax and not have to worry about children for a moment.

 

love-2614754_640Q:  What are some of your favorite CF reads from 10 years ago, or further?

Jaime: Oh I love this question!!! I’m a huge fan of Tracie Peterson’s “Heir of Montana” series. Both because I love Montana, but I also fell in love with the stories. So good!!

Trisha:  That is a great series! I’ve enjoyed many of Tracie Peterson’s books!

 

mobile-616012_640QIf we took a peek at your “recently played” music, who would we find?

Jaime:  Hmmmm…a lot of Rend Collective, Ed Sheeran, and We Are Messengers.

Trisha:  Sounds like a nice selection!

 

book-863418_640Q:  Did the plotline or the characters come first?

Jaime:  Usually the characters. Sometimes a plot concept will come first. In my current work-in-progress it was definitely the characters.

 

blur-1869579_640QWhich character took you by surprise?

Jaime: In The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond, the character named Jacobus took me by complete surprise. He was 100% unplanned and came out of left field. But that also sort of fits his personality too. 😉

Trisha:  Yes, Jacobus took me by surprise also!

 

baby-1266117_640QWhat was the latest you stayed up working on this story?

Jaime:  On this one? LOL Don’t judge. I think it was 9:30 pm. LOLOL I can’t sacrifice for anything. I’m miserable without at least 8-9 hours due to my health, so if I don’t get that then writing becomes virtually impossible.

Trisha:  Getting enough sleep sure makes the next day better! I try to go to bed before 11 p.m., but I’m not always successful.

 

correcting-1870721_640Q:  What is something that didn’t make it into the final copy?

Jaime:  Oddly? Everything made it in. I mean, sentences here and there, but there were no deleted scenes in this novel.  I’m still sort of shocked by that. That’s rare.

 

Q:  What are you currently working on and how long till we can read more?! (I’m eager to read more amazing stories can you tell?)

Jaime:  “The Curse of Misty Wayfair” is due out in January 2019! I’m super excited about it. It was probably one of my favorites to write but also the most difficult. It delves into some areas that are personally sensitive to me and so it was an emotional write too.

Trisha:  Thank you, Jaime for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit with us today! It is always a pleasure to chat with you!

Don’t miss out on any of Jaime Jo Wright’s books!

The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond by Jaime Jo Wright

Synopsis:

For over a century, the town of Gossamer Grove has thrived on its charm and Midwestern values, but Annalise Forsythe knows painful secrets, including her own, hover just beneath the pleasant facade. When a man is found dead in his run-down trailer home, Annalise inherits the trailer, along with the pictures, vintage obituaries, and old revival posters covering its walls.

As she works with the deacon’s son to unravel the mystery behind the crime, it becomes undeniably clear that a reckoning has come to town–but it isn’t until another obituary arrives that they realize the true depths of the danger they’ve waded into.

Two women, separated by a hundred years, must uncover the secrets within the borders of their own town before it’s too late and they lose their future–or their very souls.

My Thoughts:

This story exceeded my expectations. The depth of the characters, the exceptional descriptions of location and word imagery that go beyond your typical fiction novel. The very atmosphere of the story is vivid and realistic. I didn’t just read this story, I lived the story! I walked the streets of Gossamer Grove, I took a seat on a stale staw bale of hay that stuck the back of my legs. I felt hurt and sadness at the painful secret that Annalise has had to live with. I turned on lights and nearly reached for my pepper spray at one point. I found myself looking over my shoulder and gasping in shock as the truth was revealed.

Jaime Jo Write has expertly woven together two time periods, each filled with dynamic characters and circumstances.  The author doesn’t shy away from the difficult topics. Within the pages, you’ll be challenged to take a hard look at sin, judgment, forgiveness and extending grace. I didn’t want to put this book down for a moment, I was captivated!

I’m typically not a huge fan of suspense, I’ll occasionally pick up one to read. However, I’m coming to the conclusion that if it’s by this author, I’ll want to pick it up every time! Trust me when I say that you won’t want to pass up the opportunity to read this outstanding new book! I give it 5++ stars and encourage you to snag a copy for yourself!

The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond

  The Curse of Misty Wayfair

The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes a story of long-lost love and its redemption in future generations.

Synopsis:

Romance has never been actress Chloe Daschle’s forte—in life or on screen. But everyone knows who to call for a convincing death scene . . . and it might be killing her career.

When Chloe is given a peek at the script for an epic love story, she decides to take her destiny into her own hands and request an audition for the lead female role, Esther Kingsley. The compelling tale, inspired by family lore and a one-page letter from the colonial ancestor of scriptwriter Jesse Gates, just might break her out of this career-crippling rut. Jesse would rather write about romance than live through it after his past relationship ended in disaster. But once on-set together, the chemistry between Jesse and his leading lady is hard to deny.

Centuries earlier, in the heart of the Revolutionary War, Hamilton Lightfoot and Esther Longfellow wrote their saga off the silver screen. Esther’s Loyalist father opposes any relationship with Hamilton, but Esther must face her beloved father’s disapproval and the dangers of war in order to convince Hamilton of their future together. Hamilton has loved Esther for years, and on the eve of battle pens the love letter she’s always wanted—something straight from the heart.

Set in stunning upcountry South Carolina, The Love Letter is a beautifully-crafted story of the courage it takes to face down fear and chase after love, even in the darkest of times. And just maybe, all these generations later, love can come home in a way not even Hollywood could imagine.

My Thoughts:

The first thing that drew me to this book was the setting and the history side of the story. I’ve visited the historic Cowpens battlefield, walked the dirt paths and imagined what it may have been like. When we visited the honeysuckle’s were thick and fragrant.

The characters are realistic and face real struggles.  With an over-arching question of what is real love and what does it look like, readers are invited into the dialogue and challenged to possibly rethink their own ideas.

For me, the Historical time period in the story was my favorite. However, I did enjoy all the characters and I thought how Rachel wove the two time periods together was fabulous. There were a couple of spots in the story that I found a bit slow, but all in all, it was an enjoyable read!

This is the first book I’ve read by Rachel Hauck and I look forward to reading more of her books in the future. I give this story 3.5 stars and would encourage anyone who enjoyed reading time-slip stories to pick this one up!

(I receive complimentary books for review from publishers, publicists, and/or authors, including Netgalley. I am not required to write positive reviews. The opinions I have expressed are my own.)

The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright

Synopsis:

Kaine Prescott is no stranger to death. When her husband died two years ago, her pleas for further investigation into his suspicious death fell on deaf ears. In desperate need of a fresh start, Kaine purchases an old house sight unseen in her grandfather’s Wisconsin hometown. But one look at the eerie, abandoned house immediately leaves her questioning her rash decision. And when the house’s dark history comes back with a vengeance, Kaine is forced to face the terrifying realization she has nowhere left to hide.
A century earlier, the house on Foster Hill holds nothing but painful memories for Ivy Thorpe. When an unidentified woman is found dead on the property, Ivy is compelled to discover her identity. Ivy’s search leads her into dangerous waters and, even as she works together with a man from her past, can she unravel the mystery before any other lives–
including her own–are lost?

My Thoughts:

Before I picked up this book, I wasn’t sure if it was a book I wanted to read. I was curious, but hesitant. You see, suspense isn’t my typical first book of choice. However, I was drawn in by the mysterious cover and the recommendations, that I read. I tend to lean more toward the cozy, sweet, swoony love stories. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there is not one but two swoony love stories in this book!

This dual timeline story will keep you on your toes, and the suspense will keep you turning pages right from the beginning. With this delightful mystery and intriguing story, I was kept guessing until all was expertly revealed.

Foster House is more than just a setting, it’s nearly a character in the story. If you have ever walked into an old forgotten building and thought to yourself, “If walls could talk, I wonder what they would have to say”. The walls do not talk, but the people uncovering its history are discovering quite the story, and dear reader friends we are along for the adventure!

This story is real and honest. Expertly written with emotion, the author doesn’t shy away from the difficult topics of abuse and slavery. This story takes an straightforward look at the realities of the shame and embarrassment felt by the characters. The topics are handled with care and bring to light that this isn’t just something that happened in the past, but that it is still going on to this day.

Woven into the story are threads of faith, of real people who struggle with their walk, and others who stand firm even in the face of utter desolation.

I enjoyed reading this story and about halfway through the book I ended up purchasing a print copy to add to my bookshelf collection. I give this story 4.5 stars. I look forward to reading more from Jaime Jo Wright.
