Review: The Outside Child

The Outside Child The Outside Child by Tiffany L Warren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If I could sum up this book in one word, it would be Wow. Tiffany Warren has navigated outside the Christian fiction genre with a very different and entertaining tale of marriage, love and forgiveness. The Outside Child is a slow build with strong, relatable, if not always likeable, lol, characters with a genuine love for each other. All I can say is that The Outside Child was not what I expected but it had some powerful elements and themes that had me gobbling up this read in hours.

Compelling Quote: "Being in love like this meant giving away all power. It meant putting your heart in the palm of another person's hand and hoping they didn't squeeze too tightly."

Thank you, Netgalley.

Review: Love in Catalina Cove

Love in Catalina Cove Love in Catalina Cove by Brenda Jackson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved loved this first story of the Catalina Cove series. There were times where I laughed and cried as I got to know the characters. I do admit that there were some story elements that really surprised and that some might see as far-fetched but I enjoyed it up until the ending. I can't wait to read the next book by Brenda Jackson. She doesn't disappoint. Thank you, NetGalley.

Review: Sister of Mine

Sister of Mine Sister of Mine by Laurie Petrou
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

While it didn't take me long to read, I found Sister of Mine to be an okay read. I don't know if it was the writing style or the flow of the story. I didn't like the second storyline involving the son and I wish the author had went there with the sisters. Go all the way to the edge.

Review: Envy

Envy Envy by Victoria Christopher Murray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the second book of the Seven Deadly Sins series. I have been a VCM fan for years and as usual she does not disappoint. I read this on an airplane ride. It made the ride enjoyable although there was a moment where I had to hold my tears. Themes of love and forgiveness prevail throughout the read.

Review: Better Late Than Never

Better Late Than Never Better Late Than Never by Kimberla Lawson Roby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have been with Curtis Black from the beginning until now. What a way to conclude his story by going back to the very beginning. Curtis came full circle. After all his experiences, he himself had to learn the power of forgiveness. Forgiving yourself and others frees you. However, this wasn't just Curtis' story. Charlotte's storyline showed what happens when we ignore our feelings and truth and try to live a lie. Eventually, truth prevails. Kimberla Lawson Roby gave us a fitting end filled with some unbelievable events from an unexpected character. Better Late Than Never has all the ingredients for a powerful read with lasting impressions.
