Hometown LegendHometown Legend by Jerry B. Jenkins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a wonderful story about courage and never giving up. Loved it! Some of the "football talk" was over my head (yeah, I know, but I'm not a fan) and that didn't interfere with the story at all. Highly recommended for an inspirational, feel good, Hallmark moment type of story.

Sarah's Christmas MiracleSarah's Christmas Miracle by Ellis, Mary

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a feel good Christmas story not unlike those Hallmark holiday commercials that leave you warm and satisfied. Christmas can often be hectic and stressful, a story like this is a good way to bring it back in focus. Family, faith, and the true meaning of Christmas come through loud and clear. The conflict resolution is the only weak spot, I'm awarding it four stars.

Behold the DawnBehold the Dawn by K.M. Weiland

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I tried reading this book awhile ago and couldn't get hooked. My son read it and told me to try again, it was worth it. He was right (but don't tell him I said so!). It does start very slow, I was well into the seventh chapter before I found myself hooked into the story. It finishes much stronger and contains a good love story in the midst. I liked the feel and cadence to the story in the second half, it was less wordy and more lyrical, which lends itself well to the medieval theme of the story and makes it a joy to read. Docked one star for the slow start, but I do highly recommend it as a good read.

The Healer's ApprenticeThe Healer's Apprentice by Melanie Dickerson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I thought this was a sweet book with a nice thread of romance through it. I loved the setting of medieval Germany, that was a unique twist on a medieval historical romance. The main character is very believable and the situations she found herself in were engaging. I'm docking it one star only because the ending was so easy to figure out. It's a good ending, but I like a little more twist or surprise at the end. I recommend this to anyone who like historical romance and wants an easy read just for the fun of it.
