January 2, 2018

#1 Trouble Waters - Book 4 in the Montana Rescue series by Susan May Warren

Comes out today!! January 2nd!

 About the Book:

Billionaire Ian Shaw can have everything he wants–except a happy ending. Or at least that’s what it feels like with his fortune recently liquidated, his niece, Esme, still missing, and the woman he loves refusing to speak to him. In fact, he doubts she would date him even if they were stranded on a deserted island.

 Despite her love for Ian, Sierra Rose knows he has no room in his life for her as long as the mystery of his missing niece goes unsolved. The only problem is, Sierra has solved it, but a promise to Esme to keep her whereabouts secret has made it impossible to be around Ian.

 When the PEAK chopper is damaged and Sierra lacks the funds to repair it, Ian offers a fundraising junket for large donors on his yacht in the Caribbean. But the three-day excursion turns into a nightmare when a rogue wave cripples the yacht and sends the passengers overboard. Shaken up and soaked to the bone, Ian finally has a chance to test his theory when he and Sierra do indeed find themselves washed up on a strange, empty shore.

 It will take guts and gumption for the PEAK team to rescue the duo. But it will take a miracle to rescue Ian and Sierra’s relationship.


I've followed this series closely! So excited for this one to come out, thought I'm sad we are getting closer to the end of the series. Its been great! Susan May Warren has a talent for sure! Its so easy to get caught up in her stories and by the end you feel as if you really know the characters.


Her other book, Storm Front book 5 in this series is expected to come out in May!!! Beyond Excited for that one!!


#2 Another book on January 2nd is A Song Unheard - Book 2 in the Shawdows Over England series by Roseanna M White. 

 About the Book:

Willa Forsythe is both a violin prodigy and top-notch thief, which makes her the perfect choice for a crucial task at the outset of World War I--to steal a cypher from a famous violinist currently in Wales. 
 Lukas De Wilde has enjoyed the life of fame he's won--until now, when being recognized nearly gets him killed. Everyone wants the key to his father's work as a cryptologist. And Lukas fears that his mother and sister, who have vanished in the wake of the German invasion of Belgium, will pay the price. The only light he finds is meeting the intriguing Willa Forsythe.
 But danger presses in from every side, and Willa knows what Lukas doesn't--that she must betray him and find that cypher, or her own family will pay the price as surely as his has.


Oh my goodness! I LOVED the first book in this series. The characters were amazing and I still can't get over how much I love reading that book. Seriously. I could go on and on but I won't. :D So yes, I'm excited for this book as well. I've yet to read a book by Roseanna I haven't Loved.

Dorothy pieces together reconnaissance photographs with thousands of holiday snapshots of France--including those of her own family's summer home--in order to create accurate maps of Normandy. Maps that Wyatt will turn into naval bombardment plans.
 As the two spend concentrated time together in the pressure cooker of war, their deepening friendship threatens to turn to love. Dorothy must resist its pull. Her bereaved father depends on her, and her heart already belongs to another man. Wyatt too has much to lose. The closer he gets to Dorothy, the more he fears his efforts to win the war will destroy everything she has ever loved.


Sarah Sundin has been the only author that I've enjoyed reading about WWII.That's been one genre that I haven't really gotten into, but I loved her books! Her stories are touching, and the characters are real.  So excited!!

Ahh! The cover on this one y'all!

That's it! That's all you can find about what the books about! Nooo! But its enough to get you hooked, right? Karen is one author where I'll just read her books, I don't even need to know what they're about!


#7 The Orphans Wish - book 8 in the Hagenheim series by Melanie Dickerson

 About the Book:

From the streets to an orphanage in a faraway kingdom, Aladdin has grown up alone. Until he meets Kirstyn. With a father who is the duke of Hagenheim and a mother who is the patroness of the orphanage where Aladdin lives, Kirstyn is a member of the most powerful family in the land . . . and way out of his league. Despite the difference in their stations, Aladdin quickly becomes Kirstyn’s favorite companion for taking walks in the forest, and their childhood friendship grows along with them.
 Through his scrappy skills, intelligence, and hard work, Aladdin earns a position serving in the duke’s house. But he knows it isn’t enough to grant him his one desire: Kirstyn’s hand in marriage. If he hopes to change his station in life and feel worthy of marrying Kirstyn, he must leave Hagenheim to seek his fortune.
 But once Aladdin leaves, no one is around to protect Kirstyn, and the greedy men desperate to take advantage of her father’s wealth take notice. Now, more than Aladdin’s background stands in the way of the future he’s worked so hard to obtain. His only hope is to rescue Kirstyn and somehow manage to win her hand as well.


Another fairy tale retelling by Melanie Dickerson!! I've enjoyed every book by this author as well! I haven't gotten to read them all yet... but my goal is to get them all read before this one comes out. I can't wait!
