3 Book Reviews!!!

I'm pretty behind right now and life is just now slowing down (well for the week). But I really needed to get these book reviews finished up. I read these books about a month ago (I told you I was behind).

A Rush of Wings 
Kristen Hietzmann

I began reading this book and got a strange sense of déjà vu. The further I got into the book, the more I knew what would happen. Was the book predictable?!? No I have read it before. But I remember the first time that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I enjoyed just as much the second time through. I would recommend this book to others.

Noelle St. Claire is fleeing from her own fears. She leaves her wealthy upbringing and finds herself on a horse ranch owned by Rick Spencer. Along with Rick at the ranch is Morgan (his brother). As one brother tries to win her love (at the beginning) the other sits back and wonders about her secrets. She longs to be free of her fear. One of the brothers helps her to conquer her fear.

I received a free copy of this book from Bethany House Publishing Company for the purpose of reviewing.

Amy Inspired
Bethany Pierce

Rejected by publisher after publisher Amy Gallagher is starting to get frustrated and discouraged. She realizes that she needs to change the course of her life. Than she meets Eli (friend of her roommate). Eli is handsome, mysterious but also unavailable and Amy is having a hard time being “just friends.” She is also discourage because her family and friends seem to be going on with their life and she is still stuck in the same rut. This forces her to take a look at her faith, her life, her ambitions and goals. Will she decide to branch out and follow her dreams or will she play it safe?

I thought this book was an okay book. I had a hard time getting into it. I thought the difference between Amy and her roommate were comical and I enjoy the exchanges they had. I probably wouldn’t recommend this book to others as it wasn’t my favorite.

Hatteras Girl 
by Alice J. Wisler

Jackie Donovan is ambitious and has lots of dreams. One is to meet a man she could marry. She meets Davis Erickson. Her next dream is to own her own Bed and Breakfast in the Outer Banks. This is hard as she tries to put together the finanacing to purchase the place she dreams of owning (the place she would visit as a child).  Her third dream is to not be set up for blind dates by people in her family. All the men her family has tried to set her up with have turned out all wrong!

So with all these things seeming to fall in place, until secrets start to come out about Davis Erickson and the Bed and Breakfast she dreams of owning. Does she want to know the truths of these secrets? Will they ruin her dreams?

I enjoyed reading this book! Jackie Donovan was a believable character who has dreams and ambitions like a lot of people. She has a choice to make on whether she wants to risk those dreams to find out the truth. That decision is always a hard one and not everyone wants to know the truth. I would recommend this book to others. I enjoyed the other characters in the book and the setting of the book.
