Book review: Every Bride Has Her Day

Another quick book review for you! This was a fun read.

Katie has been engaged for less than a day and already everyone has a plan or idea for her wedding to pro-basketball player, Brady James. She can hardly get a word in edgewise as her friends, co-workers, and family members begin planning her big day. How does a girl get the wedding she wants without hurting feelings?
Every Bride Has Her Day

This book, Every Bride Has Her Day, written by Janice Thompson, is the third and final book of her Brides with Style series. You don’t have to read the earlier books to enjoy this one, but if you want to know how Katie gets her wedding dress and meets Brady, you really should read them all.

This is a sweet romance with some fun and quirky characters. Because Katie works at a bridal shop in Dallas, there are several stressed-out brides, proposals, and weddings throughout the book. There’s also some tension, conflict, and drama.

It’s a fun, easy read and will make you smile.

I received a free book from Revell Publishing (a division of Baker Publishing Group) in exchange for an unbiased review.


Book review: Murder Comes By Mail

In Murder Comes By Mail, Michael Keane is a deputy sheriff in the small town of Hidden 51nasamaf5l-_sx322_bo1204203200_Springs who does a good deed that goes very bad.

After saving a suicidal man who is trying to jump from a bridge, Michael becomes the town hero (which is embarrassing) and the target of the murderer (which is scary). Soon after the event, a woman is murdered and a package with photos arrives in the mail.

Michael begins to wonder if the man he saved from the bridge is somehow responsible. On the bridge, the man said, “You’ll wish you’d pushed me.” But now they can’t find him… As the body count increases, Michael must find the culprit and stop him.

This is a good story. It fits into the category of a cozy mystery, even though there are a few murders. There is also an element of faith as Michael struggles to trust God. Oh, yeah, and a little romance, too.

The author, Ann H. Gabhart (writing as A.H. Gabhart), has a nice and easy-to-read style. The characters are interesting and some a little quirky. I figured out who the murderer about halfway through the book but I couldn’t wait to see how they were going to catch him. This book is going into the church library.  🙂

So many books, so little time…

You know I work in my church library, right? And you have to know that I love reading, right? I’ll read anything: books, magazines, food containers…you name it.

Several years ago I joined an organization called Pacific Northwest Association of Church Libraries (PNACL). It’s a small group, but it’s an awesome group. We all love books and reading, and we want to share the love of these books and the knowledge (or the entertainment) we get from these books.

Yesterday I attended the last meeting of the fiscal year and we all talked about the best books we’ve read recently. The list included fiction and nonfiction, religious and secular, adult and children’s books. I’d read some of them, but added many of them to my already long TBR (to be read) list. Happy sigh…

Last week I also received two books from Revell Publishers to read and review this month.

So I guess I’d better get busy. I’ve got a lot to read!
