A good book is a good book, no matter when it was written. The following are my reviews from 2011 with the oldest reviews at the bottom. Each of the titles is a HOT-LINK to the review on my blog.

 

  • The Doctor's Lady by Jody Hedlund - This amazing book takes second behind Camy Tangs's only because I'm more a mystery-lover than a history-lover. Gripping, moving, challenging. I couldn't put it down! See my interview with Jody HERE!

  • Love Finds You In Golden, New Mexico by Lena Nelson Dooley - A precious romance set in the early days of the railroad and pioneer era of the Southwest.

  • Deadly Intent by Camy Tang - I can't say enough about this exciting mystery. The writing was tight and the characters unique and realistic. Easily my favorite of the summer!

  • The Camera Never Lies by Elizabeth Goddard - This super mystery gets intense quickly and stays intense to the end. A finalist for the ACFW Carol Award for Christian Mystery.

  • Reinventing Leona by Lynne Gentry - Easily one of my favorite reads from this summer even though Contemporary Women's Fiction isn't generally a gender I lean toward. See my interview with Lynne HERE!

  • Shadow of Reality by Donna Fletcher Crow - A light cozy whodunit, the twists and turns in the plot made for a intriguing read and it was perfect for the time when I needed something comfy cozy.

  • The Preacher's Bride by Jody Hedlund - Another inhaled book, once I started I simply could not stop. A satisfying read and the revelation at the end was like the kick of a good hot sauce! :)

  • Deep Trouble by Mary Connealy - My first dip into historicals, this western took me on a trip across country and moved me from feelings of hopelessness, to entrapment, to revelation, to promise.

  • Love Finds You in Snowball, Arkansas by Sandra D. Bricker - I and my daughter both LOVED this book. A great story with a quirky heroine.

  • My Foolish Heart by Susan May Warren kept me riveted for a full weekend. It's inspiring message of hope and healing woven between a cast of deeply layered characters proved an excellent read.

  • Hidden Deception by Leann Harris - The quaint setting and genuine characters made the a most satisfying mystery.

  • Undercover Pursuit by Susan May Warren - This book offers action and intrigue from the first page. In fact, as I previewed the first few pages of several books that I bought at the same time, this one made me keep reading. Its following pages maintained its promise, offering likable characters and an impossible situation to sort through.

  • Deliver Us From Evil by Robin Carroll - This book was edgy, with an intensity that kept me reading until my eyes could stay open.

  • The Mailbox by Mary Beth Whalen - A precious story that reminds of how our God is a God of second chances.

 

These books are on my "To Do" list. If you've read them, email me and tell me what you think.
