Plume of Fire by Marie Fostino

       The Heavens have tested Earth.  Over and Over Earth has been tested and continues to disappoint those above. No one is loving or kind any more.  No one smiles as they walk down the street. We aren't the people they'd hoped we would be. Greed, hate, those are what we find when we look around. Why can't we be who the Heavens wanted us to be? What will our punishment be?

  Marie Fostino is a wonderful writer. Her books, as with this one, are beautiful and moving.  Well plotted and full of surprises, this is one you must read. The characters are well defined and easy to relate to. I love the message of this book. It truly states what we all see but are afraid to acknowledge. Ms. Fostino definitely leads with her heart! Add this one to your TBR pile.

  I found no issues here.

  I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it was very relevant to today.

Caitlin's Song (Carson Chronicles #4) by John A. Heldt

     June 27, 1962. The Carson's didn't quite get where they'd hoped to be. They meet some really kind people they can trust and they are given a home with them. They haven't found their parents and are really ready to go home. Everyone has their own reason for wanting to "get back to normal". The question is, when will that happen?

A masterful writer, Mr. Heldt once again hits the mark. He moves through history with such ease, you'd believe he'd been part of it. The story allows you to see what happens to this family as they continue their quest. The characters are so easy to fall in love with and root for.  I enjoy this set of books so much! I can't wait for the next one.  Make Mr. Heldt an auto buy for your TBR pile.

 I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it touch my heart, deeply.

Indian Paintbrush (Carson Chronicles #3) by John A. Heldt

      The Carson clan is on the move again. They are hoping to find their parents at the next stop. It hasn't been an easy search and the clan is getting weary. Working from a list they found, the Carson clan travel from place to place. No sign of their parents but they do meet some wonderful people along the way. It's December 22, 1943. World War II is raging. Would the Carson's parents be found here?

   John A. Heldt is a master storyteller. His writing brings you right into the room with the characters. You are certain if you reach out, you can touch them. Love, happiness, sadness and pain are part of life and therefore part of Mr. Heldt's books. He is an auto buy of mine and several of my family members.  You will never be disappointed by this mans work. The mix of history and modern times is a smooth one. You move effortlessly from one period of time to another. Do yourself a favor, GET THIS BOOK!

I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because this author is spectacular!

90 Days to Life: A Journey from Turmoil to Triumph by Ruble Chandy

      Lindsay lost everything. She thought about her mistakes all the time. Her boyfriend even threw her out. What could she do now?  The answer seemed simple. Suicide. She drove to the beach to do more thinking. She met Arjun. They didn't hit it off right away. In time though, they became friends and Arjun began lessons to help Lindsay. 

   This book is a truly magnificent way to share techniques for anyone who owns a small business. It teaches a mindset. I found this book to be well written and easy to understand. While lost in the story, you will pick up subtle techniques you can use in business. Mr. Chandy found a perfect way to show you what can happen if you don't really learn how to be in business. The book is perfect for everyone but small business owners will find it the most helpful.

  I found no issues here.

   I gave this one 5  cheers out of 5 because of the unique way it teaches.

Presidential Advantage (Phantom Force #5) by Jessica James

      Living on a farm where they save horses and retrain them is a dream come true. Liz loves the work she is  doing. Of course Liz didn't own the farm, her friend did, but one day Liz hoped to own a farm like this.  Life seemed pretty good right now. She had a job she enjoyed and a fiancĂ© who loved her.  Things aren't always so smooth though.  Liz is about to find out just how tough things can get for a small town girl.

Ms. James definitely knows how to get her readers hooked. The writing and plotting are amazing. The characters well defined with personalities you'll love to hate. I found this book one you can't put down until you finish it. I enjoyed following Liz on  her journey. It really is a journey I could see happening in the real world. I actually felt protective of Liz as I read. You will two once you begin to read this fantastic book. Get this book today!

 I found no issues with this one.

  I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because Ms. James does an amazing job here.
