The Labyrinth Wall by Emilyann Girdner (my review)

My Review

Wow! This book was intense! Danger lurked around every corner for Ariana and her team as they tried to find their way out of the labyrinth.  One day a mysterious man came flying out of a sudden hole in the wall!! The hole closed up and Ariana and her team spend the remainder of the book trying to get back to that hole and get to the other side, in hopes that life is better on the other side of the wall. This book had all the feelings...humor, sadness, scariness, shock, excitement, etc... I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and I cannot wait to read the next book to find out what adventures they are in for next!

The Prophet by Sunshine Somerville (my review)

My Review

This book totally wowed me! The author is new to me and I sure am glad I found her. This intro to the Kota series was so good. I read the book in just a couple of hours.  I was hooked right at the beginning and the story held me captive until the end. The ending left me really wanting more! I was immediately drawn to the two main characters Hazen and Renny.  Hazen has been a part of Renny’s dreams and she just knew she had to find him. Even though this was a quick read, it was packed with suspense.  I highly recommend this book to lovers of fantasy and science fiction.  I cannot wait to read more of this series.

Not Again! The Adventures of Breanna and Allyson by Sarah Hays (my review)

My Review

This book was an absolute delight to read! My kids are now 14 and 16 but I still truly enjoyed this story. I think that a lot of families will be able to relate to the story of Breanna and Allyson.  The fact that the author wrote this about her own two daughters made it all the more real.  I could picture my kids when they were little acting like Breanna and Allyson.  Breanna is the older sister and even though Allyson can drive her crazy at times, they are the best of friends.  The bond they share is very easy to see in this story. I highly recommend this book to people who interact with young children.  The pictures in this book are just as good as the story.  All in all a wonderful book.

When Love Walks by Kate Squires

***IT'S LIVE!!***

When Love Walks is LIVE and available at Amazon and for Kindle Unlimited! Click on the link and experience the continued story of Elora and Logan!

When Love Walks:

“My arms find their way around her, as I hold on for dear life.”
In their continuing story, Logan and Elora’s relationship is tested, yet again, in the much-anticipated sequel to When Love Breaks.

Elora has never thought of Logan’s physical disability as a problem. She’s been nothing but supportive and has always tried to reassure him that she loves him just the way he is. So, when his attitude toward her begins to change, she can't help but rethink her role in his life.

After getting a job as a nurse at a local hospital, she meets a handsome doctor, who seems very fond of her. When Logan’s interpretation of her coworker’s affections is opposite of hers, a rift is formed between them, and their strong connection begins to crumble.

Logan, who is beginning his career as a Physical Therapist, struggles with his insecurities, and a panic sets in when he realizes another man could easily lure away the love of his life. As self-doubt replaces reason, he tries everything he can think of in his attempt to hold onto her, but will it be enough? Add in several other obstacles, and you have a recipe for the perfect storm.

Can their love survive this ultimate test? Can Logan get past his fears enough to let her love him? Will Elora be able to overlook his seemingly unjustified jealousy, or will love really walk away for good?

My Review

This is the sequel to When Love Breaks and I highly recommend you read that book before this one so that you can fully understand the storyline. 
This book has many ups and downs, highs and lows and my emotions were all over the place! In a good way though! My heart just went out to Logan and Elora as they tried to make their relationship work. I really enjoyed the story even though at times I was angry, sad, happy, frustrated…I think all of my emotions played a part in reading this book.

Logan and Elora don’t handle their insecurities very well in this story and at times I was left to wonder, “oh my gosh, are they going to make it through this?” There were a couple times that I literally said out loud, “No way.”
Overall I’m so glad the author wrote a second book on these two as I am a huge fan of them.  I give the book 5***** as I loved how it really caught all of my emotions while reading.

***** I was given a copy of this book from the author.  All opinions stated are solely my own *****

When Love Breaks by Kate Squires

This is the first book that I have read by author Kate Squires, and I can say that I cannot wait to read her other books! This book was excellent! To say that I loved this book is an understatement. This is the story of Elora and Logan. A story of two people finding themselves, finding love...having it ripped apart, then seeing if it is strong enough to put back together.

I read the book in about 4 hours as I couldn’t put it down. It tugged at my heart strings and had me dying to know if Elora and Logan would be able to pull through or not. It’s an amazing story that I recommend 100% to people who love seeing if love is enough. I give this book 5***** all the way around and am so anxious to read other books by this author.
