The Bent Tree Bride by Denise Weimer

    

             ABOUT THE BOOK

Susanna Moore can't get him out of her mind--the learned lieutenant who delivered the commission from Andrew Jackson making her father colonel of the Cherokee Regiment. But the next time she sees Lieutenant Sam Hicks, he's leading a string of prisoners into a frontier fort, and he's wearing the garb of a Cherokee scout rather than the suit of a white gentleman. 

As both Susanna's father and Sam's commanding officer, Colonel Moore couldn't have made his directive to stay away from his daughter clearer to Sam. He wants a better match for Susanna--like the stuffy doctor who escorted her to Creek Territory. Then a suspected spy forces Moore to rely on Sam for military intelligence and Susanna's protection, making it impossible for either to guard their heart.



MY REVIEW


This book was such a good book so much so that I didn't want it to end!

Weimer sure knows how to write awesome adventures and writes about the amazing sceneries that I feel like I was there!

She draws her readers in from the very beginning and I loved the romance that was included. 

Suzanne and Sam are the perfect couple! I loved them dearly.

I didn't care much for her dad but there were times that I understood him as well.

I found the War of 1812 fascinating from this author's point of view she's done an excellent job.

I appreciate how she brings something different to her works. I say special because it comes from her heart and her love of historical fiction really comes the pages of her books. 

Her stories leave my heart feeling full and satisfied.  There are some great Christian messages throughout the story. They can be applied to our lives today. 

Thank you for another wonderful story and I am looking forward to more of them. Please don't ever stop writing!

I will reread this again.

I highly recommend.

I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.

The End Run by Christy Hayes

 



ABOUT THE BOOK

Formerly published in 2014 under the title, “A Kiss by the Book,” this book has been extensively revised from the original.

Tutoring college athletes at Southeastern State University is more than a job for Jenna Peterson; it’s a way to pay it forward after long-ago tragedy struck too close to home.

Golden boy, Zach Chamberlain, isn’t the first jock Jenna Peterson’s tutored with cover-boy good looks, and he won’t be the last. When Zach’s storybook life begins to unravel, Jenna discovers he’s more than just a gifted athlete with a pretty face. A sprig of mistletoe and a searing kiss pits the playmaker against the rule maker. When secrets are revealed and the game is on the line, will they follow the game plan, improvise, or make an end run around their hearts?


MY REIVEW

Another delightful and fun read by Christy Hayes. This series has been an enjoyable one for sure and certain!
Delightful characters all the way around and some funny scenes included.
I think Jenna is my favorite character. I wish I could be more like her. I like how she doesn't let anyone railroad her so to speak and especially Zach! He hasn't been my favorite character thus far. He's stuck up and likes to bully people into what he wants.
I loved the funny scenes the best! They made me smile and laugh out loud. This was a great read!
Hayes" style of writing is awesome and I really like how she covers even some of toughest subjects. She has that special way of making you laugh, cry and even sniffle at times.
I highly recommend this read! You'll enjoy it as much as I have!
My thanks for a copy of this book. I was NOT required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Formerly published in 2013 under the title “A Kiss by Design,” this book has been extensively revised from the original.

When Emily finds an engagement ring in her best friend Dylan’s backpack, she panics and tries to stop him from marrying a girl he barely knows. When his brother asks for help planning a surprise proposal, Dylan knows it’s time to bury his feelings and finally let Emily go. When Emily accidentally puts them in a compromising position, will Dylan reveal his long-buried feelings, or will Emily realize she’s dating the wrong brother?


MY REVIEW

Gosh! Where do I begin with my review?
I liked that it was a friends first ( sort of like my husband and me) to the romance part.
I think the second thing I like about this story was that Dylan and Emily took their time in getting to know each other and even though they were friends since kids I liked this deeper side of them.
I really loves how the author shows us Dylan's side of things too. His thoughts, feelings, and crazy side too. She does a wonderful job in showing us in how a man might feel about a woman he likes.
I couldn't stand Zach and his selfish ways. These two brothers remind me of my husband and his brother both as different as night and day.
Zach kind of made me mad at him in his obnoxious ways.
I ended up snickering at some of the scenes in this book. They were kinda cute in a way.
Emily really is my best friend in many ways. Her personality sort of fits mine. I think we'd get along jest fine! I approve of Dylan wholeheartedly.
4 stars. I recommend.
