My favorite 2020 reads so far as follows

THE CRUSHING DEPTHS BY DANI PETTERY


53163130



My feelings for this book are just wow! 
Fast action that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
I liked the idea of team work in this book. Team work sure gets a lot done instead of working against each other. I learned some different things from reading this book too. A Wonderful read one I can highly recommend. 



DON'T KEEP SILENT BY ELIZABETH GODDARD


53125343


My thought on this book is that I love it because it has a little bit of everything mixed in it. I love guessing the whodunit because it kept me on the edge of my seat. The Inspiration from has left my heart feeling full. I highly recommend.


THE SECRETS OF SAFFRON HALL BY CLARE
MARCHANT


The Secrets of Saffron Hall



This book is like two books in one. But it's so well written that you won't hardly notice it. 1538 is my favorite because of the Tudors. I love anything that is written about them. They are a fascinating family. I did enjoy Eleanor's story too. 
I highly recommend this one also. Especially if you love time travel. 


STAY WITH ME BY BECKY WADE


53139892. sx318 sy475


I loved this book because it talks about issues that involve our everyday life.  This author has done her research well and has made her character's feelings come to life through the pages of this book. 
She doesn't beat around the bush about certain things this book portrays. It's also filled with Inspirational thoughts that isn't too preachy.  


IF I WERE YOU BY LYNN AUSTIN

48678863


I think the other has given us a wonderful insight on how it might be to be the other person.  Of what life is like for them.  Even though I wanted to cry in some places and others I had to snicker. I feel that Lynn has told a wonderful story one that I couldn't put down until I finished. This is one that will leave you thinking about it long after the book is finished. This is one of my favorite authors and I felt honored to be on her street team this year. I hope I did this book justice with my review because there just isn't any words to express I how feel. Blessed very Blessed. 

THE BOOK OF LOST FRIENDS BY LISA WINGATE

53025903. sx318 sy475


This book! This book is amazing! I mean every time I tried to put it down to sleep the voices in this book kept calling me to read it because they had a story to tell me. When I was finished I was blubbering because the character' struggles and pain were so realistic that I felt as I were in the story with them. Ya'll just have to read this amazing book to see what I'm talking about! 


PRETENDING TO BE WED ( FRONTIER VOWS)


53186152. sy475 t


When you read a book like this you know you're getting a treat because this author only puts out a book every so often. I love how she add humor in her books to make the reader enjoy the story that much more! I loved this couple very much. They were certainly very interesting and fun loving! This book ya'll! I highly recommend it! You'll love this couple just as much as I did!


STORIES THAT BIND US BY SUSIE FINKBEINER


53174389. sx318 sy475


I enjoy anything by this author and I feel that this is her best one yet! Ms. Betty is a wonderful character of her time. Hugo is a sweet little boy and I thought the two of them together was awesome. I loved Ms. Betty's story telling. I found myself imaging sitting by her side and mesmerized by her stories. I especially loved the places Betty and Hugo visited. I didn't want to say goodbye.


WHAT MOMMA LEFT BEHIND


53154863


I enjoyed this book about the people of the Appalachia's. Such beautiful people and the language even reminds me of Kentucky at times. Worrie is an amazing character. She's stout, determined, strong and I could name a few other words that I liked about her but that will do for now. 
The struggles are very real and dealing with the influenza on top of it all. 
I didn't like her greedy brother at all! All he thought about was himself. 
This was a great read and another one I highly recommend!
