In Every Heartbeat - Kim Bogel Sawyer
“Three best friends, three cherished dreams, three searching hearts...”
Libby, Pete, and Bennett were three close friends that grew up in an orphanage together. Than attended college together. Each with big dreams of their own. Libby Conley’s dream was to become a famous journalist, Pete had the hope of becoming a minister of the Gospel, and Bennett was looking for a place to belong, his dream was to join in on a fraternity at the college. As the days go by these three friends grow further apart. Will these friends grow back together as secrets are uncovered and friendship is tested?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I enjoyed getting to know each of the characters and thought Sawyer did a good job developing each character. The story kept my interests as I watched the life of three people with similar backgrounds, reaching toward different dreams and how each ones attitude and actions turned them into who they were at the end of the book. I would recommend this book to others.

Within My Heart - Tamera Alexander
Reflection Series Book #3
“Sometime the Greatest Step of Faith is Taken Neck-deep in Fear”
Isn’t that true?!? Rachel Boyd learns this in this truth very well as the story of her struggle to keep her ranch going, and be a good mother to her boys after the death of her husband. When she is faced with the loss of yet another loved one she is forced to trust Rand Brookston a doctor like her father, although nothing like her father. Will she learn to trust her heart and learn to love again?!
I thought this book was pretty good, I enjoyed the story line however I would of like a little bit more action. Things seem to have been kind of predictable as of what would of happened in the story. This was the first book I have read from Alexander and I would be willing to read more from her.
