We haven't really been too active in here lately so thought that I would post a topic that we could check in on whenever we wanted.

I just finished The Hero's Lot (Staff and the Sword, Bk. 2)  Author: Patrick W. Carr and started on the final book in the series Draw of Kings, A (The Staff and the Sword) :: Patrick W. Carr

I have really enjoyed this series and the way the author writes.  He is starting on another series but according to FB, it won't come out for a while.

Subject: Shelley Shephard Gray's series The Secrets of Crittenden County

I have finished Missing and The Search and I am now reading Found.

I enjoy reading a lighter series on occasion and this one fit the bill. It is a mystery and that has been a change from most books with an Amish setting.

I am also reading Choosing to See by Mary Beth Chapman. It is great for seeing the joys of adoption as well as the difficulties. It is so encouraging to read about how the family came through tragedy and how their little daughter impacted their lives even in her own short life.

Charity - is the Vicki Hinze book a Love Inspired type?  Just wondered as the title didn't sound familiar.

Cynthia, actually it is a full length novel. I have read her LI books and didn't realize she wrote regular ones as well. Needless to say, this one is different but very funny. Looks like it is part of a new series. It isn't a book I would really call Christian but it is clean. A couple references to God, etc. There is one part that I thought was a little more explicit than a normal Christian book but like I said, not sure I would label it Christian. Here is the link. Down and Dead in Dixie If you like suspense novels and such, you will enjoy this one. Some kooky characters for sure:)

And I am now reading a series by Ginny Aiken. I have to admit, I don't know if I have ever finished a 3 book series so quickly! Started the first one, For Such A Time As This, yesterday, finished it and started the next one. Now I am almost done with that one and going to the third one:) Really good historical and quite interesting. They each have a mystery aspect and lots of romance. The first one was loosely based on the story of Esther, as I am sure you could tell by the title. Really good though in my opinion.

Just finished A Heart's Rebellion by Ruth Axtell. This is one I liked but not so much. The main female character is very hard and cold at first but about halfway through you see some heart shown. It does reveal how well Ruth can flesh out a character when you want to wring their neck:)
