Now I'm giving away The Christmas Promise by Kimberly Rose Johnson!

About the book:  

No matter how lovely Keira Noble's smile, or how adorable her four-year-old son. He's been down that road before and knows it can lead to a broken heart. But that doesn't mean he can't help the pretty widow find a puppy to put under the Christmas tree for her son….

Pete claims he only wants to help her find the perfect gift for Cody. Yet Keira can't deny the tender feelings in his eyes whenever he looks at her. Could this handsome Scrooge have a change of heart, and create a new family for Christmas?

My thoughts: I don't have this book to review. It sounds great though!

Now for the question... 

"If you could choose any pet to receive for Christmas, what would you want?"

New giveaway! Now I'm giving away Aloha Rose by Lisa Carter!

About the book:

When Laney Carrigan sets out to find her birth family, her only clue is the Hawaiian quilt a red rose snowflake appliqued on a white background in which she was found wrapped as an infant. Centering her search on the Big Island and battling fears of rejection, Laney begins a painstaking journey toward her true heritage. Kai Barnes, however, is determined to protect the people he s come to regard as family. He thinks Laney is nothing more than a gold digger and blocks every move she makes toward her Hawaiian family. As their conflict escalates, it puts at risk the one thing that Kai and Laney both want most a family.

And now for the question... Have you ever traveled to Hawaii? If not where would you go if you could?

My review of Refiner's Fire by Dayo Benson

About the book:

Lexi Dixon has pretty much reached the dizzy heights of superstardom, but certain things come with the territory; things that she never anticipated. Like the fact that one of her friends has stabbed her in the back and sold the gory details of her life story to a tabloid.

Just when Lexi thought that things couldn’t possibly get any worse, an unfortunate incident in New York forces her off the red carpet and into God’s refinery for a season—just when she really shouldn’t be taking a break!

A forced vacation means that Lexi has ample time on her hands to consider her life. She knows what she wants, but how far is she willing to go to get it? Does her career have to be mutually exclusive of her relationship with God? Does she have to settle for friendship with the man that turns her knees to Jell-O? Lexi has survived plastic surgery gone wrong, and even a kidnapping. But, matters of the heart are a whole different ball game!


Lexi decides that there’s only so much a girl can take. She doesn’t have time for love anyway. However, as things spiral out of control, she soon realizes that her heart got stolen long before she even started trying to protect it.

My review:

Finished the book and loved the satisfying conclusion, though it took the heroine a long time to get there. This entire series had enough twists and turns to make a reader dizzy, but there were a few constants as well. All in all I loved the transformation of Lexi into who she became at the end of the series. The author did a great job showing her being slowly transformed and maturing in her faith. It was very realistically portrayed as most new believers are a bit slow at learning some lessons. This story could be read as a stand alone but would be best enjoyed by reading the books in order so the details that led Lexi to her final decision can be fully experienced and savored. I would read more books by this author.

New giveaway! Now I'm giving away Every Waking Moment by Chris Fabry!

About the book:

Treha Langsam is a mysterious young woman who has fallen through the cracks, much like many of the elderly people she works with at Desert Gardens Retirement Home. But Miriam Howard, director of the facility, sees her extraordinary gift and untapped potential. Treha is a whisperer of sorts, calling those who have slipped into dementia back to a life of vibrant, if only temporary, clarity.When Treha's and Miriam's stories intertwine with a documentary team looking for stories of the elderly, Treha's gift is uncovered, and the search begins for answers to the mysteries of her past. As their paths converge, each person is forced to face the same difficult question: "What if this is as good as my life gets?"An uplifting, human tale of an ordinary woman with an extraordinary gift.

My thoughts: This book starts out with a heart-rending scene. Wow. It just gets deeper as you read along. I never would have guessed that a book on this topic would intrigue me, but it has. I am on page 218 but am enjoying it so far for the unique story that it is. I hope to have a review soon. but I am on vacation right now so it's hard to get any reading done. To sum things up...  I've never read anything quite like this story before. I'm curious as to how it will end.

And now for the question... Do you know anyone who has suffered from dementia?
