A Holiday in Bath is another captivating release from the Timeless Regency Collection. Marianne, Lucy, and Caroline are three young adult women who find themselves in the holiday chaos of Bath for less than ideal reasons. Authors Julie Daines, Caroline Warfield and Jaima Fixsen create well written stories with resilient characters that entertain, amuse, and charm. Great characters, unexpected plots and fun along the way, A Holiday in Bath is worth reading. I received a complimentary copy of A Holiday in Bath: Timeless Regency Collection for my candid review.
Wings of the Wind is the first book I have read by Connilyn Cossette and I liked it. Tobiah, a Hebrew, discovers a solitary woman wounded on the battlefield. In an attempt to save her life Tobiah finds himself drawn to this woman despite her Canaanite heritage. Full of intrigue, emotions, and striking historical detail, Cossette creates a story that takes us into the Hebrew camp after they have wandered 40 years in the wilderness and are preparing to enter the land of Canaan.
As a reader of the Bible, I was impressed by Cossette’s attention to historical detail and her ability to use that detail to create an intriguing story that is full of life and historical authenticity. I loved her array of strong characters and how they bring to life all the different aspects of life and struggle in this time period. Bethany House gave me a complimentary copy of Wings of the Wind by Connilyn Cossette for my candid review.
Full of eccentric characters and strange plot twists, Behind the Scenes will keep you guessing at what will happen next. Miss Permilia Griswold is a young woman who knows wants she wants even if actually getting what she wants tends to get her in unlikely predicaments. Mr. Asher Rutherford likes predictability and Permilia is anything but predictable.
Turano has a gift for creating memorable characters. I really liked the range and depth of characters in Behind the Scenes. The characters reminded me of a Charles Dicken’s story where all the dissimilar and sometimes strange characters find themselves connected to each other by the end of the novel. Permilia was an intriguing personality and I liked following her journey.
Well written and fun to read, Behind the Scenes is entertaining. I liked it. Bethany House gave me a complimentary copy of Behind the Scenes by Jen Turano for my candid review.

To the Farthest Shores by Elizabeth Camden was a touching story of struggle and redemption. Once again Elizabeth Camden did not disappoint with her new historical novel about war, love, and pearls. Jenny is a disciplined army nurse who has worked hard on the night shift to provide a secure life for herself and Simon who raised her. Ryan is the naval officer that won Jenny’s heart and then disappeared.
