Review: Magnolia Storms by Janet W. Ferguson

From the Back of the Book

Maggie Marovich couldn’t save her father or her home from Hurricane Katrina, but she’s dedicated her life to meteorology so she can warn others when the monster storms approach. Except…she works three hours inland and rarely risks returning to her childhood hometown of Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Both her single-parent sister and the ship pilot Maggie once loved refused to leave the Coast, despite Maggie’s requests. Now a hurricane’s headed toward Mississippi, and Maggie’s sister is seriously injured, leaving Maggie little choice but to head south—into the storm.

First Line Friday - October 27, 2017

Happy First Line Friday! Is it too early to be excited about Christmas books? I borrowed three Christmas books and one Hallmark Christmas DVD from the library last week. That wasn't my intention but that's what I came home with. I have a few other Christmas books inching their way up my to be read list, too. 

My first line today is from one of those library books Christmas at Harrington's by Melody Carlson.

Review: As My Parents Age by Cynthia Ruchti

From the Back of the Book

When our parents age, it can be lonely and heartbreaking for them and us. These forty reflections offer hope and reassurance that you are not alone in the process. Roles change, priorities are challenged, and difficult conversations must be had. But there are also precious memories to be made.

Author Interview - Melanie D. Snitker

I am excited to welcome Melanie D. Snitker to the blog today! I recently read and enjoyed Melanie's latest novella Finding Forever In Romance which is part of a collection of stories called Fall Into Romance

Melanie D. Snitker has enjoyed writing for as long as she can remember. She started out creating episodes of cartoon shows that she wanted to see as a child, and her love of writing grew from there. She and her husband live in Texas with their two children who keep their lives full of adventure, and two dogs who add a dash of mischief to the family dynamics. In her spare time, Melanie enjoys photography, reading, crochet, baking, camping, and hanging out with family and friends.

Review: Fiercehearted by Holley Gerth

About the Book

Every day we struggle to find more freedom, joy, and purpose. What if the solution isn't trying harder or being better but embracing the fiercehearted woman already inside us? A fiercehearted woman looks life in the face and says, "You can't beat me." She lives fully and loves bravely. She never gives in, never gives up, and never lets go. She dares to be who she is-imperfect and beloved.
