About the Author. 

Ruth Hartzler is also the author of the #1 Best-selling Amish Romance series, The Amish Millers Get Married. 

Ruth Hartzler's father was from generations of what people refer to as "Closed Open" or "Gospel Hall" Brethren. Ruth's mother, a Southern Baptist, had years of struggle adapting to the cultural differences, and always cut her hair, which was a continual concern to Ruth's father's family. Ruth was raised strictly Brethren and from birth attended three meetings every Sunday at the Gospel Hall, the Wednesday night meeting, and the yearly "Conference," until she left the Brethren at the age of twenty one. Ruth still has close friends in the Brethren, as well as the Amish, both groups descending from Anabaptists. Ruth's family had electricity, but not television, radio, or magazines, and they had plain cars. Make up, bright or fashionable clothes, and hair cutting were not permitted for women. Women had to wear hats in meetings (what others would call church meetings) but not elsewhere. The word "church" was never used and there were no bishops or ministers. All baptized men were able to speak (preach, or give out a hymn) spontaneously at meetings. Musical instruments were forbidden, with the exception of the traditional pump organ which was allowed only if played in the home for hymn music. Even so, singing of hymns in accompaniment was forbidden. 
Ruth Hartzler is a widow with one adult child and two grandchildren. She lives alone with her Yorkshire Terrier and two cats. She is a retired middle school teacher and enjoys quilting, reading, and writing. 

I never heard or knew much about the Amish when I started to read this book. I'm a plain old Baptist myself. I use to do some work in my church.

My Thoughts on the book: 

I was nervous reading a different kind of Christian book and soon realised it was a very different romance indeed. Until today I never knew the Amish used German words. I found the author didn't over use them. She had the perfect balance between romance, English and German rolled up into one neat package. I was so taken by the good quality of writing and the details that made this story sing that it has encouraged me to check out the rest of her series.

I also hope to read the other best selling series she has.

I only found two mistakes in the whole book and highly recommend this to more people.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you will come back again to see what other book I've reviewed. I'm also looking forward to posting about my other upcoming projects.

Welcome to Last Chance (A Place to Call Home Book #1): A Novel By Cathleen Armstrong Review

Dear Readers,

Today I'm posting the review I did for Welcome to Last Chance (A Place to Call Home Book #1): A Novel By Cathleen Armstrong. I have to say that this was a good book to start my ease into Inspirational Romance books. 

Blurb For "Welcome To Last Chance (A Place to Call Home Book #1) 

She's learned you can't count on anyone--but she didn't count on landing in Last Chance.
Click To Buy
The red warning light on her car dashboard may have driven Lainie Davis to seek help in the tiny town of Last Chance, New Mexico, but as she meets the people who make this one-horse town their home, it's her heart that is flashing bright red warning lights. These people are entirely too nice, too accommodating, and too interested in her personal life--especially since she's on the run and hoping to slip away unnoticed.

Yet in spite of herself, Lainie is increasingly drawn into the small-town dramas and to a handsome local guy with a secret of his own. Could Lainie actually make a life in this little town? Or will the past catch up to her even here in the middle of nowhere?

"With equal parts hope, charm, and tender faith, Cathleen Armstrong spins a tale as warm and welcoming as a roadside cafĂ© on a dusty highway. Exit from the fast lane and visit Last Chance. It's a place you won't soon forget."--Lisa Wingate, bestselling and award-winning author of Firefly Island and Blue Moon Bay
"With an eclectic cast of characters and well-developed plot, Welcome to Last Chance pulls the reader in from the first blink of the warning light on the dashboard of Lainie's car."--Beth K. Vogt, author of Catch a Falling Star and Wish You Were Here
"An outstanding debut novel! Welcome to Last Chance gives us a warm but never sentimental view of small-town life, sprinkled with characters full of quirks and faults--all seen through the eyes of a tough but fragile heroine. Cathleen Armstrong has crafted a story to cherish."--Sarah Sundin, award-winning author of With Every Letter

"A wonderful debut novel . . . . Readers will enjoy the simplicity of Welcome to Last Chance and the complexity of Lainie's character."--New York Journal of Books

My Thoughts on the novel:

Those are the only two words that did this book justice. The story was perfect from start to finish. We really see the leading female go from the rough tough city girl to finding God and loving in a small town. When she is scared that her past is going to destroy everything that she has build. We see the small town Last Chance come around her. Not just her but we see how much a small town can love its members with the likes of when Fayette's son Matthew is hurt in a car crash. We see the whole small town try to keep Matthew on the straight and narrow. Each plot point was well thought out. I was going to give it 4 stars with the way that sometimes the language was hard to follow. I found myself having to re-read a couple pieces. I went with 5 stars as the way the characters sang they deserved that extra star. The flow was rough sometimes but worth sticking it out for. Looking forward to book 2.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you'll come back to see what I'm reviewing next,

Winter's End-Clarissa Cartharn Review

Dear Readers,

Its the holiday period and I still had time to sneak this review out for all of you. Now I'm sure the author who wrote this story is very talented. Her name is Clarissa Cartharn. I must admit that I'm looking forward to sampling all of what she has on offer and to continue to read her work.

Winter End got 3 Stars

Out Now

When young widow, Emma Winston leaves her life in London with her two children for the quieter Breakish in the Isle of Skye, all she wants is a simple life. And for a while, she thinks she has it. 

That is until she meets the mysterious Mrs Kinnaird who suddenly feels that Emma might make the ideal bride for her wealthy playboy grandson, Chris Cameron- a man who holds his own dark secrets. 

Further still, when Emma's brother-in-law, Richard Winston follows her to Skye to tell her he loves her, Mrs Kinnaird manipulates all her power to keep Richard away from Emma. 

Will Emma finally let go of her past and learn to follow her heart?

My Thoughts: 

 The love story involving Chris, which could have been longer. I love the elements that Ethel the grandmother to Christ Cameron offered. Richard played a great, well rounded role in this book and came out as a great under dog.

This book fell down with missing and over used words. I found myself wanting to edit and I'm not the best editor in the world.. I hate giving a book less than 4 stars but the lack of edits made it impossible for me to give it higher than three stars. It's a story I strongly recommend you read. I think the author has a lot to offer us and we have yet to see the full talent she has yet.

I hope that you will check out The Winters End because its a great story that it just needs another edit.

Thank you all for stopping by and I hope to have more reviews for you,

Vampire Trouble- Sara Humphrey's 5 Stars

Dear Readers,

I'm grateful to be back here to give a great author a wonderful review. Her name is Sara Humphrey's and I had the pleasure of reviewing "The Vampire Trouble."

A fledgling vampire ignites a war...
Maya remembers the last moments of her life as a human with haunting clarity, and every man she meets pays the price...until Shane. Finding herself in the middle of a bloody fight between vampires and werewolves, Maya has no choice but to let the devastatingly sexy vampire guard get close to her.
And that's not all that heats up...
http://www.amazon.com/Vampire-Trouble-Dead-City-Humphreys/dp/1402274092/ref=pd_rhf_gw_p_img_1Shane Quesada, a four-century-old vampire sentry, is known for his cold, unemotional precision, but once Maya begins to invade his dreams, his world is changed forever. His job to protect her is swiftly replaced by the all-consuming need to claim her as his own.
The Dead in the City Series:Tall, Dark, and Vampire (Book 1, Dead in the City)
Vampire Trouble (Book 2, Dead in the City)
Vampires Never Cry Wolf (Book 3, Dead in the City, forthcoming March 2015)
Maya has no memories of her past before being turned into a vampire. She was killed in a sexual assault before beaten to death. 
Now Shane and Maya are sent into a spiraling adventure that leads them on a journey that teaches them about gypsies, vampires, werewolves and shifters. What the other world could live like. When they become the second bloodmates in the vampire community they discover who strained their race really is. 
Tension continues to rise as Maya is hunted by werewolves and it turns out that her family has been hunted for generations. There is far more to her story than she knows. 
My Thoughts: 
Very few authors can knock out continuous books out of the park like Sara Humphreys does with her "Vampire series". She did well in her second book and has got the readers and myself all excited for book number 3. She earned the 5 stars for her book and I wish I could give her more. Sara has taken in my belief the "Vampire mythology" to a whole other level. 
I will definitely be adding the rest of her series to my "to be read list". I'm going to be checking out the "Amores Legends" series also. I hope to make Sara Humphreys a fixed author in my reading list and I hope you do too. 

Check back next time for more book reviews from myself.
