Full Disclosure by Dee Henderson






If you are into murder mystrery novels, then Dee Henderson is your author.  I just finished her new book, Full Disclosure.  FBI agent Paul Falcon has been trying to catch a mysterious lady who has killed 30 victims, but hasn't been caught.  Out of nowhere Paul gets a lead from the Midwest Homicide Investigator Ann Silver.  Paul is pursuing this lead, but also intrigued by the women who dropped in on his desk.  This novel has a great plot and many twists and turns.  If you like a good murder mystery novel, make sure to pick this one up.  I highly recommend it.

Courting Cate by Leslie Gould


Courting Cate was a joy to read.  From the first chapter the author had me laughing quite a bit.  Cate is a feisty girl who is convinced that everyone is out to make her the brunt end of their jokes.  She's convinced that no one really likes her and that all the boys just want to date her beautiful sister, Betsy.  Cate has had a hard life.  After her mother died when she was young, she had to practically raise her infant sister.  Since Cate has sworn off getting married and is always buried in books, her father makes an edict that Betsy can't get married until Cate does.  As you can imagine, this makes for quite a bit of tension between the sisters.  When a young, handsome guy named Pete Treger shows up, Betsy thinks there might be hope that she'll get to marry after all.

Leslie Gould does such a great job.  The situations she has Cate in at the beginning of the book are rather humorous.  I usually don't read Amish books, but this one is a keeper.  Cate has to learn a lot of hard life lessons to rid her of her harsh, stubborn ways.  I love the part in the story when she finally sees what she would be like if she continued down the path she was choosing.  The path would end in a very sad life.  Seeing the error of her ways, she makes a pivotal choice to turn and embrace what God would have for her.  After this choice, there is quite a change in Cate.  A change that everyone can see.  If you have a chance, pick this book up. You won't be disappointed.

My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade


 Becky Wade released her debut novel My Stubborn Heart this past May and I had the privileged of getting my hands on a copy.  This is a fun contemporary romance novel.  I usually don't read a novel that is strictly romance, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it.  Kate Donovan is a great girl who just hasn't succeeded with finding love in a  relationship.  But when she agrees to take time off of her job to go help her grandmother restore an old house that her grandma grew up it, she meets someone who is as stubborn as she is.  Matt Jarreau is quite a catch but isn't looking for love since tragedy has left his heart with scars.  You'll have to read the book to find out what happens b/c I'm not spoiling anyone's fun here.
This was such a fun book to read!  I would encourage you to pick up a copy and read it for yourself. I'll definitely be looking up her new novel releasing in May 2013 called Undeniably Yours.

No Safe Harbor by Elizabeth Ludwig


I just finished reading the first book in Elizabeth Ludwig's new Edge of Freedom series called No Safe Harbor.  It is definitely one to get if you like a good mystery novel.  From the very first chapter, the author had me wondering about Cara's past.  Who is Cara? She is an Irish lass who has lost her family.  Her parents have passed away and her brother was assumed dead after he went into hiding and had not been heard from.  But after a mysterious note arrives from her brother telling her to not to trust or talk with anyone and come to America, she uses all the money she has to buy a ticket.  Cara has no idea what her brother has done and if she'll be able to find him, but she is hopeful that they will reconnect once again. 

This book was a fun read.  I really enjoyed all the mystery involved in the story line.  The author did a great job keeping me guessing as to what secrets the characters were each carrying.  I'm really looking forward to reading more in the series!  Book 2 releases August 2013 and Book 3 will release in early 2014.
